Comments on: Bank lending and profits; a costly divergence http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/04/13/bank-lending-and-profits-a-costly-divergence/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: rv6672 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/04/13/bank-lending-and-profits-a-costly-divergence/#comment-29824 Tue, 13 Apr 2010 15:14:56 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=6944#comment-29824 Same old story. Fat cats get richer, while everyone else hits the unemployment lines, file bankruptcys, lose their homes in foreclosure or work at low paying jobs in fear of losing them in this recession. Nice to be rich and have friends in government to give you bailouts to cover your losses.

That’s what you get in a free wheeling capitalist society without regulations. The rich steal from everyone else and gamble. If they happen to lose that money, they threaten financial armageddon and get themselves bailed out. Once bailed out, they give themselves million dollar bonuses to reward themselves for having someone pay for their failure. Just the kind of “freedom” for a strong, innovative society right? Well, that is if you are rich. If not, to bad for you, your on your own.

Well, which is it? Besides, to say lending ‘plunged’ implies a fairly steep drop, say 25-35%, yet lending was down a mere 7.5%. In a recession year. When companies were deleveraging. Frankly, I’d rate this article a C- for economic analysis, but A+ for dumping on banks, par for the course for Mr. Saft.
