Swimming With Sharks: Goldman Sachs, Schools and Capital Appreciation Bonds / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

The fliers touted new ballfields, science labs and modern classrooms. They didn’t mention the crushing debt or the investment bank that stood to make millions. Melody Peterson, Orange County Register, Feb. 15, 2013

Remember when Goldman Sachs—dubbed by Matt Taibbi the Vampire Squid—sold derivatives to Greece so the government could conceal its debt, then bet against that debt, driving it up? It seems that the ubiquitous investment bank has also put the squeeze on California and its school districts. Not that Goldman was alone in this; but the unscrupulous practices of the bank once called the undisputed king of the municipal bond business epitomize the culture of greed that has ensnared students and future generations in unrepayable debt.

HSBC Corporate Governance Corruption / Companies / Banksters

By: BATR

When the Negotium essay, Long History of HSBC Money Laundering was written over two years ago, one might think that the Banksters would look to take a lower profile. Forget about it, when you are part of a made criminal syndicate you never have to serve time, just say you are sorry. Bloomberg reports, the “HSBC Holdings Plc Chief Executive Officer Stuart Gulliver offered “sincerest apologies” following fresh details of how the bank’s Swiss unit helped customers evade taxes.”

Beware of Bankers Bearing Gifts - Take Your Mortgage to the Grave / Housing-Market / Banksters

By: Dennis_Miller

Childhood cartoons have programmed us to see bankers as evil, greedy businessmen who delight in preying on the poor. Case in point: Snidely Whiplash.

As children we latched onto stories of the evil banker who held the mortgage on poor Nell’s ranch. Somehow a hero, Dudley Do-Right, emerged in the nick of time to save the day, and the banker was foiled again.

I’m talking here about Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) as the husband of global investment banking prowess with the U.S. government as its mistress puppet.

Cyprus-style Bank Bail-ins to Take Deposits and Pensions - The Global Bankers' Coup / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

On December 11, 2014, the US House passed a bill repealing the Dodd-Frank requirement that risky derivatives be pushed into big-bank subsidiaries, leaving our deposits and pensions exposed to massive derivatives losses. The bill was vigorously challenged by Senator Elizabeth Warren; but the tide turned when Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorganChase, stepped into the ring. Perhaps what prompted his intervention was the unanticipated $40 drop in the price of oil. As financial blogger Michael Snyder points out, that drop could trigger a derivatives payout that could bankrupt the biggest banks. And if the G20's new "bail-in" rules are formalized, depositors and pensioners could be on the hook.

How Wall Street “Jihadists” Are Engineering a Government Shutdown / Politics / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: WASHINGTON, D.C. – A tense battle between warring political parties erupted in Washington yesterday when Wall Street-backed Jihadist demands surfaced in the 1,600-page omnibus spending bill – threatening to first take the U.S. House of Representatives hostage, then all of America.

Intelligence services (obviously not Washington-based) initially identified the financial terrorists as Beltway lobbyists, but later revealed them to be a Big-Bank sleeper cell embedded in God-hating Dodd-Frank legislation, universally decried by the faithful as blasphemous.

kdowdle writes: A happy belated Thanksgiving to you all.

If yours wasn’t happy, just think – it could have been a lot worse. You could have been the turkey and gotten slaughtered, like the turkey in this tale I’m about to tell you.

It’s a tale of two birds of a feather, one a greedy, fat butterball stuffed with gibberish and ripped-off profits.

Science Finally Proves What We Already Knew About Bankers / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: “Business culture in the banking industry is favoring, or at least tolerating, fraudulent or unethical behaviors.”

That’s what Ernst Fehr told reporters in a telephone interview this week.
Fehr is an economist at the University of Zürich in Switzerland who co-led a study about business behavior.

Fehr’s study proves what we’ve all long knew – but it wasn’t the only piece of news last week that demonstrates the crookedness of bankers.

Why Do Banks Want Our Deposits? Hint: It’s Not to Make Loans / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

Many authorities have said it: banks do not lend their deposits. They create the money they lend on their books.

Robert B. Anderson, Treasury Secretary under Eisenhower, said it in 1959:

When a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower’s deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. The money is not taken from anyone else’s deposits; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It’s new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower.

Just Blame the Banks / Politics / Banksters

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

“I think this is a time where people will look back on us and see it as a period of practically central bank worship.”  - Jim Grant

Central bank equals big private-publicly owned banks. The populace still holds a collective deference for the banks. The view that the political financial alliance is the problem is still a rare one. Always one step from conspiracy.

Let’s Watch as the Big Bank “Fixers” Scramble and Flee / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: If you can’t beat ‘em (or manipulate ‘em), then don’t join ‘em.

That’s the new Wall Street mantra, as evidenced by happenings in the “fixing” world.

Talk about irony. “Fixing” or “fix” are Wall Street terms used to describe how benchmarks are priced on hundreds of instruments, from the Libor and other foreign currency exchange rates to gold, silver and swaps.
