The Evolution of Finance Capitalism

From the mid-19th Century until the Great Depression, banks, insurance companies and other large institutional investors supplied railways with external capital that supported their rise to near hegemony over transport in the U.S. This regime ended in the 1930’s, when widespread rail bankruptcies threatened broader credit markets. The federal government intervened via a powerful, new, public financial intermediary—the Reconstruction Finance Corporation—to socialize devalued rail debt, which largely removed private institutional investors from rail capital markets. At this defining moment, the Roosevelt Administration could have ...
to a modern, high-income economy. Its scope includes the process and policies by which a nation improves the economic, political, and social well-being of its people. Gonçalo L Fonsesca at the New School for Social Research defines economic development as "the analysis of the economic development of nations." The University of Iowa's Center for International Finance and Development states that: "'Economic development' or 'development' is a term that economists, politicians, and others have used frequently in the 20th century. The concept, however, has been in existence in the West for ...
The Ethical Basis of Politics
In many ways I've come to think of AS as an antique. There are parts, though, that hold up marvelously well, like Francisco's money speech. The Fountainhead holds up much better overall and literarily imo even though AS is the greater novel. --Brant That speech is easy to quote from. It offers many "sound bites." On some message boards, my taglines come from that speech. Nonethelss, I have been tempted to recast it into a positive statement. The speech is largely negative. Money is not... Money is not...

     When the Nazis assumed power in Germany in 1933 the struggle between Nazis and Semitists was already in progress within the constext of Judaism and Communism.  On the eve of the Nazi ascension the Semitists were already crying for the isolation and boycott of Germany.  The Semitists were distributed throughout all the nations and states.  They now tried to erect an international cordon around Germany.      The Germans fought back.  Germans, too, were distributed throughout the countries of the world.  Just as the United States had the largest Jewish population outside Europe, perhaps in the world, so it also had the largest ... market research, surveys and trends

Worldwide poll: Vast majority say capitalism not working | Raw Story
"Free Market Capitalism" ceased to exist when central banks were introduced. The meddling was worsened when "licenses" became the norm, because the right to contract was breached. What kind of 'capitalism' is being referred to here is not mentioned. Is it 'corporate capitalism' , 'state capitalism', the private 'financial capitalism' (money creation as debt) of the federal reserve or what? Certainly aint free market capitalism based on a sound currency and the rule of law and as long as economic power colludes with political power there never ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Where does the Laffer curve bend?
With the Bush tax cuts due to expire soon and debates about raising top rates further to cut the budget deficit soon to follow, the Laffer curve is bound to come up again. The idea, popularized by economist Arthur Laffer and writer Jude Wanninski in the 1970s and '80s, is simple. Tax rates of zero percent produce no revenue, for obvious reasons. Rates of 100 percent should produce no revenue either, as no one would bother making the money that falls into that bracket knowing it would all be taken away. Thus, presumably, there is some rate in between the two that maximizes revenue. Go above it and revenue would fall because ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Last week he sat down in the Los Angeles offices of his production company, IXTLAN, to talk with me about his recent documentary, South of the Border and his upcoming release Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps --- and the links between the two.

Why is that? Oliver Stone: I suppose it comes from the old imperial impulse of the US toward Latin ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How much capital is enough? How bank regulators have answered this question during the post World War II period has been shaped by two contending strands of thought. The approach that held sway prior to 1980 relied largely on the exercise of banker and supervisory judgment, and resisted simple numerical definitions of capital adequacy on the grounds that each bank faces a multitude of unique risks. Since 1980, bank supervisors, stimulated in part by legislation arising out of banking crises, have placed much more emphasis on precisely defined numerical minimum capital standards. The new Basel capital accord (henceforth ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Capitalism became the dominant economic system in Europe and the United States in the 1800s. During the Middle Ages, Europe's main economic system was manorialism, with land-owning nobles granting peasants the opportunity to work the land in exchange for fixed payments. Between 1500 and 1800, the governments of major European nations used the theory of mercantilism to direct their economies. By the mid-1700s, many Europeans believed that mercantilism interfered with economic growth. Market capitalism currently functions with varying degrees of government. Like in Japan.
