How Bush Tried to Stop Predatory Bank Lending / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on investigations convenes on Tuesday, they'll be presented with a mountain of evidence showing that Washington Mutual intentionally issued subprime mortgages that they knew would fail, and then bundled the loans into securities so they could be sold to investors. The senate's year-and-a-half long investigation, has strung together hundreds of e mails and other internal documents that will prove beyond a doubt that the now-defunct bank was engaged in industrial-scale fraud. This is from the Los Angeles Times:

To Organize Against Wall Street, We Need A Narrative Focusing On Crime And Massive Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn politics, it’s always all about the narrative, about how issues are framed.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlan Greenspan's reputation has a whiff of terminal decline after his appearance on April 7, 2010, before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC). Prudence is warranted though, before taking a short position on the former Federal Reserve chairman. The celebrated central banker has spent a lifetime pouring his deep reservoirs of energy and ambition into his own advancement, and now, his legacy.

Wall Street Banks Looting Main Street / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMatt Taibbi writes: How the nation's biggest banks are ripping off American cities with the same predatory deals that brought down Greece

If you want to know what life in the Third World is like, just ask Lisa Pack, an administrative assistant who works in the roads and transportation department in Jefferson County, Alabama. Pack got rudely introduced to life in post-crisis America last August, when word came down that she and 1,000 of her fellow public employees would have to take a little unpaid vacation for a while. The county, it turned out, was more than $5 billion in debt — meaning that courthouses, jails and sheriff's precincts had to be closed so that Wall Street banks could be paid.

Greenspan Oscar Winning Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Testimony / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlan Greenspan's performance before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was a real Oscar winner. At no time, was the ex-Fed chairman in trouble, and he was able to showcase the full repertoire of fake emotions for which he is renowned. He was alternately condescending, professorial, combative, engaging, and acerbic. It was vintage Greenspan from start to finish; the tedious jabber, the crusty rejoinders, the endless excuse-making.  At 80, Maestro still hasn't lost his touch. No one laid a glove on him, which is precisely the problem.

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Phil Angelides, Chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, had Robert Rubin, former senior advisor Citigroup (also former Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton, and former Co-Chair of Goldman Sachs), and Chuck Prince, former CEO of Citigroup, in the palm of his hand today. He asked them why they weren't alarmed for Citigroup in May of 2007, when the Bear Stearns hedge funds ran into trouble. He recalled they imploded in June 2007 and joked that it happened around the time of his birthday. Rubin and Prince shrugged it off, and Rubin that he didn't know about Citigroup's CDO troubles until the fall of 2007.

Mexico in Crisis, The Struggle for Balance / Politics / Mexico

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week’s Geopolitical Intelligence Report provided a high-level assessment of the economic forces that affect how the Mexican people and the Mexican government view the flow of narcotics through that country. Certainly at that macro level, there is a lot of money flowing into Mexico and a lot of people, from bankers and businessmen to political parties and politicians, are benefiting from the massive influx of cash. The lure of this lucre shapes how many Mexicans (particularly many of the Mexican elite) view narcotics trafficking. It is, frankly, a good time to be a banker, a real estate developer or a Rolex dealer in Mexico.
