FTR #823 Caution, Banksters at Work, Part 2 (Still More Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

Updat­ing FTR #‘s 772 and 792, the broad­cast high­lights a recent social psy­chol­o­gy exper­i­ment that indi­cat­ed a strong incli­na­tion toward dis­hon­est, crim­i­nal behav­ior on the part of bank­ing pro­fes­sion­als. After not­ing Deutsche Bank’s pre­car­i­ous posi­tion, the pro­gram notes two oth­er sus­pi­cious deaths. Deutsche Bank’s Calogero Gam­bi­no alleged­ly took his own life, fol­low­ing the alleged sui­cide of anoth­er Deutsche banker–William Broeksmit. Cit­i­group’s Shawn Miller sup­pos­ed­ly slit his own throat, this after plac­ing some 911 calls com­plain­ing about being fol­lowed. The Sen­ate bank­ing com­mit­tee recent­ly con­clud­ed an inves­ti­ga­tion of the bank­ing indus­try’s involve­ment in the com­modi­ties’ mar­kets, some­thing that offers tremen­dous oppor­tu­ni­ty for ille­gal spec­u­la­tion, as well as leav­ing banks with poten­tial­ly cat­a­stroph­ic expo­sure to fluc­tu­a­tion in those mar­kets. In Octo­ber, a dra­mat­ic fluc­tu­a­tion in the mar­ket for U.S. Trea­sury bills has raised omi­nous ques­tions con­cern­ing the sta­bil­i­ty of this glob­al finan­cial safe haven. The prob­a­bil­i­ty of such an event hap­pen­ing was once every 1.6 bil­lion years!

For­eign Banks bor­rowed exten­sive­ly from Fed dur­ing the melt­down; aid to Dex­ia and Dep­fa need­ed to avoid muni­pal fis­cal armaged­don, stem­ming par­tial­ly from Dex­i­a’s appar­ent crim­i­nal activ­i­ty.

FTR #670 Update on the Meltdown, Part 3: Top Banana Republic

U.S. is beset by the same struc­tur­al eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal prob­lems as Emerg­ing Mar­ket coun­tries; Will the “Top Banana Repub­lic” pull through? Or will we bring the rest of the world down?

FTR #649 The Corporate State Revisited

Mus­solin­i’s cor­po­rate state reward­ed mem­bers of the eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal elite who brought him to pow­er. Com­pare fas­cist Italy with George W. Bush’s Amer­i­ca!
