Third Greek Bailout? Another 53.8 Billion Euro Needed? Primary Account Surplus Revisited / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Greece has two major financing problems. One is long-term, the other happens right now.

  1. Greece's overall debt load of €323 is not sustainable. What cannot be paid back, won't.
  2. The current payback schedule on debt owed to the ECB and IMF implies yet another "bailout" to the tune of €53.8 Billion.

Is Citi Bank the Next AIG? / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: John_Rubino

Back in December there was a flurry of press around the passage of a banking bill that was 1) reportedly written by Citigroup and 2) put taxpayers on the hook for over-the-counter derivatives, obscure financial instruments that periodically blow up and in which Citi had a big position. Distrustful cynics like Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren claimed to see a connection:

Bail-In Normalization / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andy_Sutton

When the bail-in first ripped through Cyprus in the first part of 2013, I wrote a series of articles about the topic and examined some documents from the Bank for International Settlements, the FDIC and Bank of England regarding treatment of depositors and their funds. To sum it up as we begin the latest chapter in what will no doubt morph into the biggest swindle ever to impact humankind, let’s recap what exactly the bail-in is.

Russian Roulette: Taxpayers Could Be on the Hook for Trillions in Oil Derivatives / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ellen_Brown

The sudden dramatic collapse in the price of oil appears to be an act of geopolitical warfare against Russia. The result could be trillions of dollars in oil derivative losses; and depositors and taxpayers could be liable, following repeal of key portions of the Dodd-Frank Act signed into law on December 16th.

On December 11th, Senator Elizabeth Warren charged Citigroup with “holding government funding hostage to ram through its government bailout provision.” At issue was a section in the omnibus budget bill repealing the Lincoln Amendment to the Dodd-Frank Act, which protected depositor funds by requiring the largest banks to push out a portion of their derivatives business into non-FDIC-insured subsidiaries.

New Banking Rules: Cyprus-style Bail-ins to Take Deposits and Pensions / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ellen_Brown

On the weekend of November 16th, the G20 leaders whisked into Brisbane, posed for their photo ops, approved some proposals, made a show of roundly disapproving of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and whisked out again. It was all so fast, they may not have known what they were endorsing when they rubber-stamped the Financial Stability Board's "Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution," which completely changes the rules of banking.

The Mega Debt and Sustainable Capitalism / Economics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Tom Naysburn writes: Accepted thought acknowledges the financial crisis of 2008 was a near apocalyptic event which needed the citizens of the Anglo American dominated financial world to bailout the banking system to the conservative tune of $10 trillion in the US, and at least £1 trillion by UK taxpayers.  For perspective, the entire cumulative national government debt in the UK stood at £350bn at the turn of the century.

Bank Depositor Bail-Ins and Real Assets vs Liability-Based Assets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dan_Amerman

Bail-ins are a new way of "rescuing" banks and other financial organizations that have been sweeping around the world, even as they rewrite the rules for investors and depositors.

Bail-ins have already occurred in Cyprus with their banking system, as well as with the retirement system in Poland. The European Union is on board in rapidly implementing bail-in standards, and they are under intensive scrutiny by regulators in the United States, with ratings on some major US bank securities already being changed in anticipation of the potential for bail-ins. Canada has announced its intentions in this area as well, and Japan is moving rapidly.

They're Planning the First Legal "Bank Robbery" in U.S. History / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: So-called "bail-ins," which give banks the right to dip into your savings to pay for their lousy financial decisions, have been on the table for years, ever since Cyprus tested the idea.

But they're moving beyond the "testing phase" now.

The latest clue came from a seemingly benign banking conference on December 2, when one man revealed some frightening central government intentions.

Zombie Government Armed with Accounting Tricks Bailed out Zombie Banking Industry / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Casey_Research

By Doug French, Contributing Editor

On March 16, 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), a private-sector organization that establishes financial accounting and reporting standards in the US, turned the stock market around and at the same time motivated banks to become the worst slumlords and neighbors imaginable.

Most people believe accounting is conservative, the rules cut and dried. Accountants make economists look frivolous. But accountants are people too, and FASB succumbed to pressure from Capitol Hill in the wake of the 2008 financial crash.

AIG Myth: No Time to Avoid Windfall Bailout / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Janet_Tavakoli

On August 13, 2007, more than a year before the AIG meltdown, I publicly challenged AIG’s phony accounting for credit default swaps linked to over $19 billion in “super senior” exposure to subprime and other dodgy loans. These were meant to be super safe, but any competent CDO specialist should have been able to perform the same analysis I did. Instead of super safe, AIG had several billion dollars worth of principal risk due to exposure to mezzanine tranches backed by a significant percentage of poorly underwritten loans, and losses were eating through all of the so-called protection. Yet, despite market prices already eroding on the underlying collateral, AIG took no accounting losses at all. That was far from AIG’s only problem.

David Stockman on his Book and the Bailouts / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: MISES

Mises Institute: In the book, you oppose Bernanke’s view of the Great Depression, which you point out relies heavily on the views of Milton Friedman.

David Stockman: Bernanke has cultivated this idea that he is a brilliant scholar of The Great Depression, but that’s not true at all. What Bernanke did was basically copy Milton Friedman’s misguided and very damaging theory that the Federal Reserve didn’t expand its balance sheet fast enough by massive open market purchases of government debt during the Great Depression. Bernanke therefore claimed that monetary stringency deepened and lengthened the depression, but in fact interest rates plummeted during the crucial 1930-1933 period: credit contracted due to genuine and widespread insolvencies in the agricultural districts and industrial boom towns, causing bank deposits to shrink as a passive consequence. So Bernanke had cause and effect upside down — a historical error that he replicated with reckless abandon in response to the bursting of the housing and credit bubble in 2008.

U.S. Taxpayers Could Profit from Fannie Mae Bailout / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Bloomberg

In his first TV interview since the company reported record profits, Fannie Mae CEO Tim Mayopoulos told Bloomberg TV's Peter Cook today that U.S. taxpayers could see a net gain from their bailout as the housing market rebounds. Mayopoulos said, "I do think, given the strength of our future profitability, that it is possible that we will be able to pay dividends that would be equal to or greater than the amount of money that we've received from the Treasury Department."

Paulson on Fannie Mae Profit: I Had to Pinch Myself / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Bloomberg

Former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson spoke with Judy Woodruff in an interview airing on Bloomberg Television at 9:30 pm/ET this Friday. Paulson said that he "had to pinch himself" in reaction to the news that Fannie Mae generated record profits last year. "I could hardly believe what I was reading."

Paulson also said that the U.S. needs to slow the growth of entitlement programs and raise more tax revenue by closing loopholes: "We may need more revenues...This should be part of doing something with entitlements, because I think to just keep postponing entitlement reform is a big mistake."

Recapitalization Of International Banks / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Mandeep Chadha writes: Cross Border Economic-Political Relations & Risk to International Banks

Global economy is witnessing an integrated banking system is emerging with a small group of large across developed countries' banks the spanning respective national banking markets: As Garrett, Mahadeva and Sviridzenka noted. This raises the issue of the appropriate international level of body to monitor and manage financial stability. Financial stability is currently managed at respective national levels. In particular, the fiscal competence to deal with banking crises is a responsibility of national governments.  However, the recent wave of recession starting in the western economy, as travelled and affected the global economy at large. The risk management is required to manage the recession and make the global economy turn back to the growth path.
