The Many Faces of Bank Nationalization's / Politics / Nationalization

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Jack Rasmus writes: Calls for nationalizing the banking industry have been bubbling since at least last September 2008, when the current Banking Panic began in the wake of the Lehman Brothers bank collapse, the initial AIG bailout, and the quick absorption of Merrill Lynch-Wachovia-Washington Mutual banks by their larger competitors, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan Chase.

Lloyds TSB Nationalisation End Game, Another £280 Billion of Tax Payer Liability / Companies / Nationalization

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe government is about to announce the defacto nationalisation of Lloyds TSB as capital of £5 billion is expected to be converted / injected into the bank that takes the governments real stake to 75% (officially 65%). On top of this the government will guarantee an estimated £275 billion of the banks bad debts which will be dumped onto the tax payer by means of the Asset Protection Scheme. It was less than 2 weeks ago that the government committed £400 billion for the insurance of toxic securities, which according to my calculations has so far already committed £325 billion to RBS for its toxic securities, therefore we are well north of the £400 billion limit. The toxic debt insurance scheme is akin to getting your car insured AFTER you have crashed it.

Bank Nationalization and the Total Destruction of Shareholder Investments / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: It's a tough time to be a bank shareholder. You're not just worrying about whether the ongoing recession or a further lurch downwards in housing prices is going to decimate the value of your bank's loan portfolio. You're also worrying about whether some government “stress test” or – worse still – nationalization is going to destroy most or all of your investment's remaining value.

Nationalization of the Economy is Not as Scary as it Sounds / Politics / Nationalization

By: Submissions

David Sirota writes: Amidst the punditocracy's handwringing about the supposedly unprecedented possibility of nationalization in America, Paul Krugman this week reminded his New York Times readers that nationalization is "as American as apple pie." He noted that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has been nationalizing about two banks per week, and that the best way to save our financial system is to temporarily nationalize it.

Banks to Nationalize or Not to Nationalize / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Paul_J_Nolte

To nationalize or not to nationalize, that is the question. Whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of (the markets) or to take up arms against the sea of troubles and by opposing end them. With a bit of poetic license we could easily rework the Hamlet's soliloquy to bring it out of the kingdom and into the banking system.

Will HBOS Bankrupt Lloyds TSB into Nationalisation? / Companies / Nationalization

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe shot-gun wedding between HBOS and LLoyds TSB last September in the amidst of the financial markets panic following Lehman's bankruptcy to prevent another Northern Rock nationalisation is increasingly blowing up in Lloyds TSB's face as yet again the reassuring words that bankers say one week turn out to be completely untrue. The Lloyds Chairman was congratulating himself barely 3 weeks ago of how the takeover would result in cost savings of £1.5 billion per year. With today's announcement of a £10 billion loss by HBOS for 2008 shatters the Chairman's illusion and Lloyds TSB's balance sheet, as ever it will not be the bankers that pay the price but the tax payer. Already the UK Tax payer has pumped in capital injections of £18 billion into the LLoyds TSB HBOS group.

The Real Truth behind the Citigroup Bank Nationalization / Companies / Nationalization

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday November 21 the world came within a hair's breadth of the most colossal financial collapse in history according to bankers on the inside of events with whom we have contact. The trigger was the bank which only two years ago was America 's largest, Citigroup. The size of the US Government de facto nationalization of the $2 trillion banking institution is an indication of shocks yet to come in other major US and perhaps European banks thought to be ‘too big to fail.'

Well, Crystallex International Corporation can stop waiting--the mine is being nationalized as part of dictator Hugo Chavez's long-running program of socialist takeovers. “This mine will be seized and managed by a state administration” with help from the Russians, said Mining Minister Rodolfo Sanz.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThank you for your carefully considered argument in rebuttal of my (conceptual) proposal to nationalize the banking industry.

Perhaps you will think less ill of me if we can agree on precisely what has been occupying my thoughts – because it appears to me that you are making some unfounded assumptions regarding what I am actually proposing for consideration.

Comrade Bernanke and the Socialist Republic of the United States / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy nationalizing nearly 80% of AIG for $85 billion, the Fed is doing a lot more than simply flushing taxpayer money down the toilet.  The greater wrong is allowing the agency that has the power to print money to take control of a private enterprise, especially without the approval of the company's shareholders.  The move represents the largest lurch toward socialism that this country has ever seen, and signals the end of the vibrancy of America's once vaunted free market economy.  Since there is no limit to the amount of money the Fed can create, there is no limit to the number of assets they can acquire.

AIG Bailout and Federal Reserve Act Loophole 13.3 / Companies / Nationalization

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of the Fed sponsorship of AIG to the tune of $85 billion or more at taxpayer risk (See Nationalization of AIG: Treasury to get 80% stake in return for $85 billion ), inquiring minds just might be asking "By what authority can the Fed lend to insurance companies?"

It's a good question given that the Fed is widely thought to be authorized to lend only to banks. It turns out the Fed can lend to pizza parlors if it wants to, with a questionable interpretation of the Federal Reserve Act.
