…EpicureanDeal, compared to this article by:

…”former Federal Reserve Bank examiner who teaches finance” – no wonder everything is screwed up.

Timmie and Bennie, leave the guys alone, they are dealing with fiscal and monetary drag from Bush,Cheney, Greenspan & Associates Inc.

Where were the politicians during the housing bubble? They were demanding that the banks put unqualified Americans into home ownership! They pressured the banks to lend the money. It used to be that a contract was sacred. The borrower promised to pay back the debt. Now, the borrower just has to say, sorry, I don’t have it, so I get to keep the house anyway. Talk about moral hazards! We have whores for politicians. They take no responsibility. It’s too bad. The decline in personal responsibility in recent years has been astonishing.

You said it, Thank You.

China will be happy to take up the Slack and Jobs Oblame’ah, may put in jeopardy.

After we see a firmer recovery (maybe). Oblame’ah unfortunately broke up a years worth of bipartisan work on regulatory reform with one “image boosting proposal” a surprise even to his own people! This new dynamic “world economy” is unlike the 1920’s, perhaps we need a solution tailored more towards today’s economy. Geithner Bernanke – represent Oblame’ah’s “resistance to change”

Small banks and credit unions are not failing in droves. I also do not agree that ten big banks are better than 7000 small banks. This sounds like a book learner egghead analogy. Banking is a personal business between the banker and the customer and trust is built between them. I will not do my banking with bigger banks as they are faceless and nameless entities who hide behind 800 numbers. The biggest problem we have is too many pension plans have too much money to risk. When it goes bad they want all their money back. We need closer regulation, higher fees on profits, and a return to stabilization.
