News that Goldman-Sachs is pushing the envelope by betting its money on risky investments should be a clear signal, if we needed another, that Wall Street is dangerously off track again. With Elizabeth Warren declaring herself out of the running, HRC could do herself, the Democratic base, many Independents, and even anti-crony-capitalist Republicans, a great deal of good by stating as clearly as possible – perhaps in a speech to top Wall Street leaders (but, please, not in a fund-raiser!) – that we’re perilously close to going back to the way things were before the 2008 Wall Street meltdown, and therefore (1) Wall Street must stop trying to roll back Dodd Frank, and Congress must stop doing so, (2) the size of the biggest banks (which are far larger now than they were in 2008) must be limited, (3) the Glass-Steagall Act must be resurrected (in the form it was before the Street began whittled it away in the 1980s and 1990s), and (4) there should be a clear and strong definition of “insider trading ...
I've heard people blame Clinton for the financial crisis, he didn't veto the repeal of the Glass Steagall act in 1999. This was passed with every republican senator (53) voting for it, and only one democrat. Only 5 republicans in the house voted against it, they were just 10 votes shy of passing it with only republican votes, and there were 11 republicans who didn't vote that could have carried it. The lesson I see this is that republicans are like children playing with matches, and it’s democrats responsibility to stop them from burning the house down. So yeah, let’s blame Clinton for not stopping republican legislation from crashing the economy, even though Bush had a republican congress for 6 years and ignored the problem, because Bush was busy playing with matches as well.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BRITISH ECONOMY AND THE DEATH OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. Scotland will not be able to escape this crushing blow that will see many of our fellow citizens and children die of starvation or commit suicide rather than face the bleak future ahead of them. Scotland’s only hope is to claim our independence as soon as possible and try and rebuild our society from the ashes as a resource and energy rich nation. We can only do this as a small agile country able to act and respond quickly to the circumstances, something we cannot do being attached to the failing and lumbering Westminster school of rich crooks. For many years now I have been an ardent studier of the economy and what the financial experts agree is in store for Britain in 2015 is so terrifying it boggles the mind and numbs the senses. Both the mainstream media and the Westminster government – Labour and Tory – have colluded to hide the horrific truth from the general public. It all started in the 1980’s when Margaret Thatcher ...

Wall Street VETOES THE PRESIDENT: Once upon a time, in 1995, we had a president who—with the support of his advisors—was willing to do the right thing and stand up to Wall Street, which had by then already taken over most of Washington. President William Clinton considered a Senate Bill called the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. -- The Bill's proponents, a corporate coalition—Wall Street banks and brokers, accountants, insurers, Silicon Valley—wanted the banker-friendly bill which would make it more difficult to prove securities fraud. -- The bill's opponents felt it would shield securities fraud by these companies. ■ The Wall Street Lobby Owns WASHDC politicians, and so their bill prevailed. Furthermore, in his second term, a politically weak President Clinton gave game-changing concessions to WALLST — deregulating the financial services industry, supporting the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, and leaving derivatives transactions unregulated— which within a decade had .. ...

FDIC Sues 16 Mega-Banks and British Banks' Association Over LIBOR Interest-Rate Rigging On Friday the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation filed suit against 16 of the world's mega-banks, and against the British Banks' Association, for colluding to rig the interest-rate-reference figure, the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate). This action follows many other lawsuits against Wall Street banks for Libor-rigging, filed over the last 50 months by municipalities and other entities looted by the mega-banks through Libor-based interest rate swaps and other scams. The pattern and evidence of fraud are overwhelming, which only shows the necessity to stop the whole game, by re-instating the Glass-Steagall Act in the United States. Legislation is ready and waiting in Congress. The new FDIC lawsuit, filed in the Federal District of New York, charges that the conduct of the accused entities caused significant losses to 38 banks that the FDIC had to take into receivership since 2008.

Placing Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush above Bill Clinton and Barack Obama on lists of the worst presidents in U.S. history amounts to intellectual dishonesty, if not flat-out delusion. Withal: Bill Clinton was the more effective Reagan e.g., Whereas Reagan et al. failed at passing NAFTA and other so-called free trade pacts, whereas Reagan failed at implementing Welfare "reform", an act that cast more children into poverty than any event since the Great Depression, and whereas Reagan and company failed at repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, an action that caused the global economic crash of 08' -- Clinton succeeded at inflicted all the above on the nation. Moreover, Barack Obama, from the excesses of the national security state to global militarism, to the breaching of human rights and transgressions against civil liberties, to bankster/corporatist enabling, has doubled down on all things Bush/Cheney. O' hypocrite, thy name is partisan.

"A lot of my friends at these investment banks are going to be real mad at me for saying it, but I really think that was one of the problems in '08." While the Feb. 11 coverage of Icahn's interview concentrated on his comments about Apple Corp. stock, on Feb. 12 there was widespread coverage of his Glass-Steagall call in the Chicago Tribune, International Business Times, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago TV WFGO, and elsewhere. The Tribune commented on the weight of Glass-Steagall in Icahn's view, noted that "Icahn ... rarely comments on the nation's banks."

Tomorrow I'll be at the Bexar County Young Democrats endorsement meeting. Here are two of my answers to their questionnaire about the high cost of an education and the lack of employment, for young adults: 1) Do you have a plan regarding higher education costs? A University education was much cheaper 50 years ago, because the nation was much more productive in the agro-industrial sectors. Tuition costs have been passed on down to the students because our nation is bankrupt; in order for the current monetary system to perpetuate its power structure, they are raising prices and cutting programs across the board, but especially in specialized physics research and arts programs. The first thing we must do is reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act, ending Wall Street's speculation with student loan debts, credit card debts, car payments, and other commercial assets. This will cancel 99% of the investment portfolios in circulation, which were illegitimate anyway because they were just parasitizing off the commercial ...

AmericanBanker Features a Whistling-Past-the-Graveyard Essay To Dismiss Glass-Steagall The website of the publications of the American Bankers Association, americanbanker.com, featured as a "Top Story," a whistling-past-the-graveyard essay on Thursday, focusing at some length on Glass Steagall, concluding with the point, "It has little or no prospect for passage." The article, dated Jan. 9, is titled, "Glass-Steagall, Dodd-Frank, Volcker: Why All the Eponyms?" by Paul L. Lee; it is prominently run with photos of Sen. Carter Glass, Barney Frank and Paul Volcker; along with links to three other AmericanBanker articles on Glass-Steagall, including "Why Warren's Glass-Steagall Is DOA." The author, after presenting his contrived theme about "name identification in banking law" (e.g., Volstead Act), then states, "surely the most prominent example of eponymity in banking law in the twentieth century remains the Glass-Steagall Act," and proceeds with a glib, dismissive history of it for nine paragraphs. A point o ...
World Council of Churches Called for Global Glass-Steagall At a conference held in Sao Paulo, Brazil in October 2012, the World Council of Churches issued a call for the institution of the Glass-Steagall principle on a global basis. The conference, one of three held that year in a continuing response to the collapse of 2007-8, was titled "International Financial Transformation for the Economy of Life," and was likely held parallel to the G-20 conference, also in Sao Paulo that year. In a statement dated October 5, 2012, the WCC called for "Immediate and medium-term actions" to regulate the financial sector, one of the points being that, "Basic banking activities of deposit taking and lending to enterprises and households should be tightly regulated and separated from more risky activity (as in the United Strates in the 1930s with the Glass-Steagall Act)." (emphasis in original). In addition, they called for regulation of "speculative activity" and "the lightly regulated shadow banking sector," mandatory c ...
Relevant History: Federal Reserve Board Imposing Glass-Steagall Law Borrowing from a page of relevant history, the following minutes of two Federal Reserve Board meetings from March 2nd and March 8th, 1934, demonstrate the way in which the Glass-Steagall Act was enforced, in response to exemption requests by Lehman Bros. Sundry other examples of how the law was dealt with by the FRB can be found at the Federal Reserve Archive. As of November 19th, 2013, all of the Minutes of Board of Governors meetings from 1914-1951 have been made available online. FIRST EXCERPT "A meeting of the Federal Reserve Board was held in Washington on Friday, March 2, 1934, at 11:10 a. m. Present: Mr. Black, Governor; Mr. Hamlin; Mr. Miller; Mr. Thomas; Mr. Szymczak; Mr. O’Connor... "...There was also presented a memorandum dated January 20, 1934, from Mr. Chase, Assistant Counsel, and Mr. Tyler, Special Assistant Counsel, which had been circulated previously among the members of the Board, referring to the board's letter of D ...
Chile may seem far removed from New York City, but the biggest (but least covered) news this week was the election of Michelle Bachelet to the presidency of Chile – one of the most prosperous yet most unequal of all advanced nations, not counting the United States – on a platform remarkably close to that of New York’s Bill de Blasio: increasing corporate taxes, using the money to improve education for the bottom two-thirds, and getting big money out of politics. If you add in a living wage, and a resurrected Glass-Steagall Act to stop big banks from gambling with our money, you've got the start of a simple, easily-understood, and hugely popular agenda that the next candidate for president of the United States would do well to adopt.
It all began with a little tweak in the system, with a little deregulation. After the Great Depression, two new laws were enacted in the United States – the Glass-Steagall Act and the Securities and Exchanges Act- aimed at curbing the financial mismanagement that led to it. They restricted irresponsible dealings and required regular and extensive disclosure of financial information. The banking sector was tightly regulated. All was going good and no one suspected the financial sector for a long time; until the Oil Shock struck the world. The Arabs were making money rapidly-faster than they could consume it. Their reserves of petro-dollars was doubling by the day and quadrupling overnight. They invested all this in western banks. The banks now had more deposits than investments. Ideally, this is a good place to be in. But greed crept in through the backdoor. The banks did not want to sit on all the green that they had going on for them. They wanted to ‘invest’ it and ‘diversify’ their funds. They ...
