What could possibly be on my mind? I've just listened to four hours' worth of insults, innuendo and insanity between our two major political parties' leaders, each of whom claim some mythical moral high ground. Meanwhile, the real 1% oligarchs like Soros, the Koch brothers, Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson, the Waltons and Tom Steyer (not to mention their 5% army of Wall Street pirates, Hollywood hypocrites and other lesser multi-multi-millionaires who preach economic fairness from their own self-serving perspectives) continue to use their immense wealth to encourage us to treat each other as enemies. Are we really that dense? Are we so easily fooled?
Worth a read: Note from Jack Kelly, Publisher at CompliancEX When you are actively seeking a new job it is easy to myopically focus upon your own personal quest. I suggest that you also view the industry you are in to understand the overall climate. Since a job search is not conducted in a vacuum it is important to know about what is currently happening in your field. Larger events outside of your control may either positively or negatively affect your chances of landing a new position. For example, if you work on Wall Street, there are a number of recent industry related factors that may adversely impact the job search. Here is a brief rundown of some of the challenges confronting the financial industry: 1. Although the stock market has been performing relatively well the banks are not; (And remember Warren Buffett predicts downward trends for stock market as of yesterday.) 2. Bank of America recently acknowledged a $4 Billion accounting error which was embarrassingly overlooked by the company and its re ...

In the movie, the Wolf of Wall Street, probably Leonardo DiCaprio’s and Martin Scorsese’s finest work. Among the best scenes in the movie, occurs at the beginning when a young Jordan Belfort is taken to lunch by his new boss Mark Hanna (played by Matthew Mcconaughey). At lunch, Mark gives Jordan some fundamental advice about succeeding in the financial industry, including this gem: “First rule of Wall Street, nobody, and I don’t care if you’re Warren Buffett or Jimmy Buffett, nobody knows if a stock’s going up or down, or sideways, least of all stock brokers. But we pretend to know.”
Six Lessons You Should Have Learned From the Financial Crisis Are We Any Wiser Than We Were Five Years Ago? By BRETT A. 6. Cash isn't trash. When times are good, Wall Street treats cash as…well, as a four-letter word. Conventional wisdom considers it "dead money," a poor investment earning low returns. Investors prefer to swap it into more exciting assets—to "put that money to work," as they like to say.They are assuming a liquidity crisis cannot or won't happen again. Yet when it does, as in 2008, those who have wisely held cash in reserve hold all the cards.Again, look to the master, Warren Buffett. He was loaded with cash and was able to buy up bargain stocks amid the panic. All investors need to hold cash (and equivalents, such as short-term Treasury bonds) in their portfolios.Those on Main Street also need to know they can meet household expenses and handle an economic crisis.

AlterNet Once upon a time, hedge fund manager Eddie Lampert was living a Wall Street fairy tale. His fairy godmother was Ayn Rand, the dashing diva of free-market ideology whose quirky economic notions would transform him into a glamorous business hero. For a while, it seemed to work like a charm. Pundits called him the “Steve Jobs of the investment world.” The new Warren Buffett. By 2006 he was flying high, the richest man in Connecticut, managing over $15 billion thorough his hedge fund, ESL Investments. Stoked by his Wall Street success, Lampert plunged headlong into the retail world. Undaunted by his lack of in ...
"David Cameron has conceded that there was insufficient social mobility in British society and said it was the job of the government to raise the aspirations of people from poor backgrounds to get top jobs in public life. Speaking days after Sir John Major criticised the "truly shocking" dominance of the affluent and privately educated in public life, the Eton- and Oxford-educated prime minister accepted that the coalition must "do far more" to increase diversity in the national elite" - quoted from the Guardian And what do you think? But I think of - "Wall Street is the only place where the people riding Rolls- Royce ask for ideas to the people taking the subway" - Warren Buffett
A banker named Andrew Huszar who helped manage the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program during 2009 and 2010 is publicly apologizing for what he has done. He says that quantitative easing has accomplished next to nothing for the average person on the street. Instead, he says that it has been "the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time." The Federal Reserve was created by the Wall Street bankers for the benefit of the Wall Street bankers. When the Federal Reserve serves the interests of Wall Street, it is simply doing what it was designed to do. And, according to Huszar, quantitative easing has been one giant "subsidy" for Wall Street banks... Having racked up hundreds of billions of dollars in opaque Fed subsidies, U.S. banks have seen their collective stock price triple since March 2009. The biggest ones have only become more of a cartel: 0.2% of them now control more than 70% of the U.S. bank assets. Billionaire hedge fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller, whose net worth is estimat ...
Warren Buffett's 10 Ways to Get Rich; With an estimated fortune of $62 billion, Warren Buffett is the richest man in the entire world. In 1962, when he began buying stock in Berkshire Hathaway, a share cost $7.50. Today, Warren Buffett, 78, is Berkshire's chairman and CEO, and one share of the company's class A stock worth close to $119,000. He credits his astonishing success to several key strategies, which he has shared with writer Alice Schroeder. She spend hundreds of hours interviewing the Sage of Omaha for the new authorized biography The Snowball. Here are some of Warren Buffett's money-making secrets -- and how they could work for you. 1. Reinvest Your Profits: When you first make money in the stock market, you may be tempted to spend it. Don't. Instead, reinvest the profits. Warren Buffett learned this early on. In high school, he and a pal bought a pinball machine to put in a barbershop. With the money they earned, they bought more machines until they had eight in different shops. When the frien ...
A Simple Reform Could Save America From Wall Street and Boost the Economy: What’s Washington Waiting For? Financiers have been getting a free ride for too long. Let's make them pay their share instead of robbing seniors. AlterNet / By Lynn Stuart Parramore 58 COMMENTS It’s a simple tweak that would reign in an out-of-control financial sector, stimulate jobs, generate billions of revenue, and possibly prevent another heart-wrenching crisis. Nobel Prize-winning economists like Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman want it. Billionaires like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates want it. Polls show the majority of Americans want it. Even the Pope wants it. We’re talking about a financial transaction tax (FTT) — a tiny tax of, say, less than half a percent: maybe 3 cents per $100 — on Wall Street trading. It’s simple, more than fair, widely supported by the public, and long overdue. Over the last weeks, Americans have been kept from going to work and the fragile economy has been strained as members of Congre . ...

THE REAL Warren BuffetT Born during the Great Depression in Nebraska, Warren Buffett is one of the wealthiest businessmen and investors alive. With a net worth of $53.5 billion as of March 2013, Forbes is the second wealthiest American and fourth wealthiest person in the world. Completely self-made, Buffett is famous for his frugal lifestyle and down-to-earth personality, yet still ranks 15th on Forbes magazine's "World's Most Powerful People" list. A math prodigy, Buffett began to show his intelligence as a young child. His father was a stockbroker and a U.S. congressman, and Buffett spent many hours at his father's stock brokerage shop. He made his first investment at age 11, buying three shares of Cities Service Preferred. He sold his shares at a small profit, but regretted his choice when the stocks shot up to a much higher price. Buffett used this experience as an early lesson on investment patience. By 13, Buffett was working as a paperboy and also selling his own horseracing tip sheet. He even file ...
DEVELOPING: Despite the 6.5% stock market rally over the last three months, a handful of billionaires are quietly dumping their American stocks . . . and fast. Warren Buffett, who has been a cheerleader for U.S. stocks for quite some time, is dumping shares at an alarming rate. He recently complained of “disappointing performance” in dyed-in-the-wool American companies like Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, and Kraft Foods. In the latest filing for Buffett’s holding company Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett has been drastically reducing his exposure to stocks that depend on consumer purchasing habits. Berkshire sold roughly 19 million shares of Johnson & Johnson, and reduced his overall stake in “consumer product stocks” by 21%. Berkshire Hathaway also sold its entire stake in California-based computer parts supplier Intel. With 70% of the U.S. economy dependent on consumer spending, Buffett’s apparent lack of faith in these companies’ future prospects is worrisome. More Info tonight.
New York -- Proving once again that he's a long-term investor, not a day trader, billionaire investor Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway made few changes to its closely followed $85 billion stock portfolio in the first quarter. Berkshire increased stakes in three blue-chip favorites, adding a global player in energy infrastructure, and bidding farewell to just two names, according to a regulatory filing Wednesday. 24/7 WALL ST.: More on Buffett's stock moves ASK MATT: Buy like Buffett? Buffett's stock trades are closely watched by Wall Street because of his legendary investment prowess, and his buy-and-sell decisions offer a prism into his investment thinking. It's not uncommon for other investors to mimic Buffett's trades when they become public, which often gives a price boost to the stocks he owns, an aftereffect dubbed the "Buffett Effect" by academics. Berkshire raised its stake in banking giant Wells Fargo, which is among the nation's strongest banks and which was the company's top holding at the e ...
About Benjamin Graham Benjamin Graham was born Benjamin Grossbaum in London, England, to Jewish parents. He moved to New York City with his family when he was one year old. After the death of his father and experiencing poverty, he became a good student, graduating from Columbia University, as salutatorian of his class, at the age of 20. He received an invitation for employment as an instructor in English, Mathematics, and Philosophy, but took a job on Wall Street eventually starting the Graham-Newman Partnership. Career [edit] Benjamin Graham and his memoirs His book, Security Analysis, with David Dodd, was published in 1934 and has been considered a bible for serious investors since it was written. It and The Intelligent Investor published in 1949 (4th revision, with Jason Zweig, 2003), are his two most widely acclaimed books. Warren Buffett describes The Intelligent Investor as "the best book about investing ever written." Graham exhorted the stock market participant to first draw a fundamental distinc ...

Just submitted this story idea to Brian Williams of NBC Nightly News: Dear Mr. Williams; WHO: I'm a devout NBC, MSNBC, and Brian Williams fan.

I hope to do this in less than 500 words. I propose a brief history of the development of economic thought, historical peeks at Adam Smith, Alexander Hamilton, Robert LeFevre, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes etc., moving throughout the ups and downs of our nation's worst economic crises and busted bubbles to the best of the true booms, arriving at contemporary discussions with lions of Wall Street, Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Krugman, Warren Buffett, their ilk. Bring on Ezra Klein, sit him down opposite you in the studio like you do Nancy Snyderman, and let him do his masterful wonky best in summing it all up. WHY: The eyes of so many Americans glaze over at the mere mention of the beltway bickering over Democ . ...

More Fairness, Less Deficit Our first three proposals could bring in $329 billion a year; this alone would solve the deficit problem while helping to close the yawning inequality gap. 1. Tax Wall Street: $150 billion per year. A tiny tax on stock and derivatives transactions, which several European countries are on track to adopt, would discourage Wall Street speculation, fill the hole in the deficit left by the Bush tax cuts, and leave plenty left over to fund lots of programs. The National Nurses Union and many other allies are fighting hard for this. 2. Tax Corporations and Stop Tax Haven Abuse: $100 billion per year. The Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency coalition has pointed out that one of the main ways that corporations avoid paying taxes is by declaring their profits in overseas tax havens like the Cayman Islands. 3. Tax the Wealthy Fairly: $79 billion per year. Our rigged tax code lets CEOs pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries do (as Warren Buffett keeps pointing out). Th ...
Obama in Boca Raton Florida: "You might have heard of this, but Warren Buffett is paying a lower tax rate than his secretary. Now that's wrong. That's not fair and so we've got to choose which direction we want this country to go in," said Obama during the speech. "I've already told you where I stand, now it's time for members of Congress to tell you where they stand." Obama's "Buffett Rule" proposal would raise the effective tax rate for the wealthy on investment income to at least 30 percent.” Before we got into the Buffett Rule distraction, let’s point out the fact that the rich do not pay lower average tax rates than average salary earners. See table from the Wall Street Journal below:
Are the yanks more decent than anyone else? Tel Aviv, Israel We're here in Israel at the invitation of a dear reader. Originally from Baltimore, our Dear Reader now makes his home in the Promised Land. "How did you end up here," we wanted to know? "A long story of failures..." was the answer. "I was a failure in college so I dropped out and went to Wall Street. A friend and I started an investment fund...this was back in the '60s. We had a total of $175,000 under management. Can you imagine? That's not even a respectable bonus these days. But a lot of funds were small back then. And we didn't even take a salary for managing it. Just 15% of the profit. Still, believe it or not, we did pretty well. "But then I got tired of managing money. So, I looked for someone to take it over...someone to manage it for me.

Warrens Simple Life Warren Buffet lives a simple life 1200 miles west of Wall Street in Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha’s population of 500,000 pales in comparison to the crowded streets of New York and Wall Street. Buffet’s company, Berkshire Hathaway is valued at $150+ Billion! Company world headquarters are in Omaha and have been there since January 1, 1962. Berkshire Hathaway is run by a couple handfuls of employees at company headquarters. Buffet has two secretaries, two accountants, one bond trader, and a personal assistant who screens his phone calls. Buffet lives a very frugal life. He doesn’t own the biggest house on he block and he doesn’t own multiple properties. “How could I improve my life owning 10 houses around the globe?” ~ Warren Buffett He lives in a modest home that he bought for $31K over 50 years ago. He also buys hail-damaged cars to get a good bargain and drives them until his daughter is too embarrassed to be seen with him. Buffet lives a slow paced life and that’s how he has ...
Written by Daniel Jones RE: JP Morgan's $2 billion loss. CEO Jamie Dimon called the strategy: "flawed, complex, poorly reviewed, poorly executed and poorly monitored". Ya think? The funny thing is that JPMorgan is considered to be much more "risk averse" than most other major Wall Street financial institutions. Henry Blodget, Wall Street commentator at Business Insider made these comments: "Wall Street bankers are just a bunch of kids playing with dynamite. There are two reasons for this ($2 billion dollar loss) , neither of which boil down to "stupidity." The first reason is that the gambling instruments the banks now use are mind-bogglingly complicated. Warren Buffett once described derivatives as "weapons of mass destruction." And those weapons have gotten a lot more complex in the past few years. The second reason is that Wall Street's incentive structure is fundamentally flawed: Bankers get all of the upside for winning bets, and someone else- the government or shareholders- covers the downside."

Good read by Lee Harris. As Occupy protesters turn violent, it’s worth reflecting on why the movement failed in the first place. When the Occupy Wall Street movement began in 2011, it took as its motto the bracing claim: “We are the 99 percent.” A year later, it is beginning to look more like the Occupy movement is simply another 1 percent, different of course from the 1 percent of the richest Americans that the movement set out to target, but no more representative of the average American than the likes of Bill Gates or Warren Buffett. How did this happen? Despite the fact that the Occupy Wall Street movement never came close to standing for the opinion of 99 percent of Americans, it originally struck a sympathetic chord among the many Americans who blamed our nation’s economic woes on the greed and selfishness of the rascals on Wall Street. Long before the financial crisis of 2008, many moderate and even quite conservative Americans were becoming increasingly alarmed at the growing rate of econo ...
RBI Mute On The Biggest Bank Scam The apex bank hushes up the FEMA violations that took place during the sale of forex derivatives by banks, leading to a loss of Rs 25 lakh crore. DERIVATIVES are products invented by the West to fleece the rest of the world. More rightly pointed out by Warren Buffett, these are nothing but financial instruments of mass destruction. More than 90 per cent of these products originate from the five big Wall Street banks. Greece is a standing example of how even a country can go bankrupt by signing a derivative agreement with a Wall Street bank, in this case, Goldman Sachs. Also, as pointed out by Randall Dodd of the International Monetary Fund, during the financial crisis of 2007-08, these derivative products came in handy for US to transmit the crisis to several emerging market economies resulting in loss of a whopping $550 billion to developing countries including India. Forex Derivative Consumers’ Forum (FDCF) president Raja M Shanmugam said, “It was during the first h ...
