Comments on: Embattled Wall Street should prepare for worse http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2011/10/11/embattled-wall-street-should-prepare-for-worse/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Lambick http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2011/10/11/embattled-wall-street-should-prepare-for-worse/comment-page-1/#comment-8565 Thu, 13 Oct 2011 09:29:56 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/columns/?p=7145#comment-8565 It took since Reagan to get Glass-Steagall out of the way (“Get the government off your back”), this led to a perfect storm in finance, we’d put up new floodgates against a repeat performance by the banks, we would regulate them into submission, wouldn’t we?

Since a few people looked at Inside Job, they might not take lightly the fact that next to nothing has actually been done. Enough broken promises to take to the street.

If you think I’m mad, try looking up the Federal Reserve Act which was signed off by Woodrow Wilson (he later came to regret it).

Corporations has been chasing EPS for the short termism CEO and its executives including all its golf buddies board of directors when middle class is trying to put food for their children and have shelters for them.

whoever can come out with the new financial model would definitely get a nobel prize in 30 years.

Viva revolut”cion”…

these people do realmwork.not some self serving shenanigans claiming that they’re supposed to be the middle men (make that parasite) facilitators of credit.
put them back into their original place : a supporting plain vanilla role in the economy facilitating credit flows minus the self serving creativity.

When will we just make all banking non-profit – no more derivatives, CDOs, etc. Stop the casino banking. No money is ever printed for any interest whether earned or owed, so interest fiat really does not even exist. With that in mind, everyone is chasing a fairy tale. Just save real money, forget stupid interest and make all banking world wide non-profit. Banks should exist to hold or transfer funds as needed and for no other reason.

They were ignored, because they were not, and still are not, a factor in the government’s decision-making. Those decisions are made on Wall Street.

Also nice to see the acknowledgment of the theft of production from the middle class by Bernie and Timmy, through the wholesale printing of fiat money. (“… trillions of dollars pumped into financial markets, inflating asset prices and trading desk profits.”)

Boy, I sure feel sorry for those banks. 10,000 pink slips is not going to be “the worst” though. Barred windows will be a fortunate turn of events for these execs by the time we’re through.

You do not have to sit on Wall Street to manage money, trade equities, or create derivatives.

This “industry” has caused more damage to the American people as a whole than heroin dealers, and yet we keep giving them more money? Whatever for?

We need consumer friendly banks that are completely separated from risk taking, derivative spewing financial speculation houses.
