The Shadow Banking System

The public generally considerers denizens of the pit as greedy, soulless, money grubbing monsters, difficult to empathize with in any setting. Any arguments? How much do you want to bet that the troubled bank starts with the letter “L”. Watch for film crews framing those dark, foreboding shots in the canyons of downtown Manhattan this summer. Hey Kevin, baby, have your people call my people and let’s do lunch! There are few people as qualified to discuss the stresses of (and on) the financial system over the past several years as Yale and Wharton Professor Gary Gorton , who just incidentally has held positions at the Bank Of ...

Disequilibria: A Constant State Of Instability » The Shadow ...
There were two primary channels by which the shadow banking system operated: the Money Market/Commercial Paper Channel and the Repo Channel.  Note that I am deliberately avoiding a discussion of SIVs, Conduits, and other SPEs which at one point made up a substantial part of the shadow banking system, because they were generally sponsored by banks as off balance sheet entities, and the sponsoring banks generally had to bring them back on balance sheet during the crisis, so they are presently of limited concern. The Money Market/Commercial Paper Channel worked as follows:  Individuals and firms, seeking higher yields on cash ... market research, surveys and trends
drieuxster: The Problem Space of The Tea Partiers
by Mark Gimein. The first part of the madness of course is that I thot everyone knew that the Tea Party was a slap in the face to blindly simplistic Free Marketeering, since of course the cost of getting the Tea shipped directly to New England from the East India Company, without pausing to do the London Airs was once well known. The point of the protest was not merely 'the price is right' but the fundamental issue of 'taxation without representation'. Which has been the problem in the first place with TeaTardia - forgetting that they have the right to vote for their representative in congress. An opportunity ... market research, surveys and trends

58 percent approve of the job he is doing, and 65 percent are very or somewhat confident that he will be successful in turning the economy around. The poll also contains the interesting and “ somewhat surprising ” finding that a majority of the American public supports nationalizing the banks : 11. Temporary nationalization is another way for the federal government to deal with large banks in danger of failing. This is where the government takes over a failing bank, cleans its balance sheets, and then quickly sells it off. In general, which do YOU think is the better way to deal with failing banks… 29 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Get the Shadow Banking System Moving Again - CBS
Everyone has heard stories about how much credit is being reduced. Most anecdotes are about banks that are reluctant to lend, but in fact most banks are extending loans, even if they’re demanding more information about their customers. The real reason credit seems tight is that the so-called “shadow banking system” appears broken. The shadow banking system refers to hedge funds, investment banks and investment vehicles known as conduits. They use a process known as securitization, which means taking individual debts and then bundling them with other loans and selling them to investors and using the proceeds to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Step-by-step financial reform
The Senate is poised to give final approval to a bill that would impose tough new regulations on banks and Wall Street. Passage of HR 4173, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, would mark the second major expansion of Washington's regulatory power during the Obama administration — the first being the comprehensive healthcare reform law enacted in March. But these measures hardly mark a return to New-Deal-era interventionism in Washington. They're not as radical as critics claim. That's not to say they won't have an impact on business and the economy, or that they're ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
EU do it: The time is rife for a financial transaction tax
As EU citizens lose faith in their leaders' resolve to make the financial sector pay for the damage it has caused, the case for implementing a financial transaction tax (FTT) ''could not be stronger,'' argues ex-investment banker Sony Kapoor, managing director of think-tank Re-Define and an advisor to several G20 governments and the European Parliament, in an op-ed for EurActiv. This commentary, sent exclusively to EurActiv by Sony Kapoor , is based on published op-eds in Le Monde, Financial Times Deutschland and De Volksrant.

Good evening. It is a great pleasure to share a meal with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, and especially with the Center's fellows.

The financial crisis of 2007–2010 has been called by leading economists the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.[1] Economist Peter Morici has termed it "The Great Recession."[2] It contributed to the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in the trillions of U.S. dollars, substantial financial commitments incurred by governments, and a significant decline in economic activity.[3] Many causes have been proposed, with varying weight assigned by experts.[4] Both market-based and regulatory solutions have been implemented or are under consideration,[5] while significant ...

All the actors in the market behaved as one would expect during the increase the housing prices, and once prices began to fall the the crisis in the financial market was unavoidable. It is true there were greedy people on wall street, but there always are, and home buyers over extended because they thought prices would continue to rise, but that is human nature. Bubbles in assets market have always been part of capitalism, there was one less than a decade ago in the stock market, but people never learn. The only way to protect the economy is for government regulations to prevent financing bubbles with borrowed money. ...
