Jaw-Dropping’: Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Makes Bombshell Claim About Russia and 2008 Financial Crisis (and Why It May Sound Familiar) Mar. 18, 2014 12:39am Jason Howerton The Chinese “received a message from the Russians” back in 2008 suggesting a pact to sell Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities on the market, which would have nudged down the price of the debt of Fannie and Freddie and also maximized the chaos on Wall Street, a former U.S. official told BBC. It confirms a report that TheBlaze TV’s For the Record first aired back in September 2013. It’s a bombshell claim that only underscores the mistrust between the U.S. and Russia in a time when tensions are high. BBC’s Robert Peston describes the cynical relationship between the two nations as “deep, rooted in history” and one that shows that the “triumph of capitalism over communism wasn’t the end of the power game between these two nations.” Talking about the 2008 financial crisis, particularly the issues with Fannie Mae . ...

He was on air this morning claiming special access – who would organise that? Is it significant that this “politically neutral” company was in recent weeks having its executive board undergo media training in case they faced interview? And on Radio Four the thunderclap of doom was applied by James Naughtie from Edinburgh, transformed for the day from news presenter into Scotland correspondent, analysing the implications and calling Standard Life on ...
Lesley Joseph, Julia Bradbury, Robert Peston, Bones and Limbs from BBC 4, elusive species and students from Derby Uni. Now.
Donna -- It has been a big day in the referendum debate. Earlier today the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney delivered a landmark speech on the problems caused by the SNP’s plan for a Eurozone-style currency union after independence. You can read former Chancellor Alistair Darling’s reaction to the speech here. The BBC’s Nick Robinson and Robert Peston give a good summary of why today was so important. There was already an overwhelming consensus among experts that the SNP plan was not credible. That is why both the Chancellor and the Shadow Chancellor have said that agreeing a Eurozone-style currency union is highly unlikely. Today’s speech from Mark Carney will only strengthen that opposition. Incredibly, Alex Salmond still refuses to tell us what currency we would use when the rest of the UK say no to sharing the UK pound. We deserve to know: what is the plan B if Scots choose to leave the UK? It is clear: the only way to guarantee we keep the strength and security of the UK pound is . ...

Hmmmnn. STV news skims over the issue. Robert Peston on the BBC gave a very interesting picture (with examples) of the difficulties of a currency union unless the Bank of England have basically the powers they have already (interest rates for one) and a salient point about currency exchange. Mark Carney played it right. Don't be explicit over choosing sides (how can he in his role?) but did enough to raise some thorny questions that do need answered.
