Comments on: The capital games that banks play http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/09/03/the-capital-games-that-banks-play/ Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: David Bernier http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/09/03/the-capital-games-that-banks-play/comment-page-1/#comment-3797 Wed, 09 Sep 2009 18:26:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/?p=3476#comment-3797 I don’t believe in the soundness of “capital relief” through the purchase of credit default swaps. If these guarantees (from AIG) were fully backed-up by
collateral, it might make more sense. The CDSs might count as a form of “regulatory capital”; if regulators knew the terms of these private contracts, it would be better. I believe much more in the soundness of Tangible Common Equity, which Rolfe Winkler explained in a blog post or article a month or two ago.

I bet at least UBS or Deutsche Bank are part of those European banks…

Let’s see…what did we just do? We have been scared to death again and have given hundreds of billions of dollars to the bozo millionaire/billionaires who brought our system down to failure. Why? Because we are all owned by the system..and I am not just saying in the USA, the entire world has become dependent on usury and the system. Yes, you can be man/woman enough to admit it, you are OWNED by the system. You can’t live on your own, you are totally dependent on the SYSTEM. Why else would we leverage our grandchildren’s lives? Because we are very weak people who live on materialism and bad values. Now, back to the commentary, do you think they want transparency? Come on, the billions that we have lent the banks are being used to prop up WALL STREET right now. The money isn’t getting into the consumers hands nor small business, no the banks are using it in their FUNDS to invest heavily into Wall Street and then their buddies are doing the same back…look at the banks…now come on, JPMorgan back to almost the level before anything happened..???? What bank do you think it is who holds all of the consumer credit card debt which is about to GO KAAABOOOM?
yes, JPMorgan, and they also hold TONS of toxic debt that took WaMu down. This whole shabang is nothing but another way to keep us all tied up and coraled. You better get yourself 5 acres of land and a Self-sufficiency book really sooon…or you may starve to death. Enough said. but, again, take a look at it, you are OWNED !!!

I support the audit of the US Federal Reserve as proposed by Ron Paul.
