  The Masters of the Universe Fallacy
Whenever there’s a major financial crisis, the largest commercial and investment banks invariably take big hits. This causes them to either go bust or go in search of a bailout. In fact, as far as I can tell there has never been a case over the past 50 years of an elite financial institution being on the right side of a major financial crisis. The same goes for central banks. Judging by their words and their actions, the heads of the world’s most important central banks have been blindsided by e

Wall Street Is Falling Off A Cliff, And The Bottom Is A Long Way Dow
For the past 50 or so years, the quickest way for a sharp young sociopath to get rich has been to join an investment bank or hedge fund. The former were riding a "regulatory capture" gravy train that became ever-more-lucrative as new government agencies morphed into subsidiaries of Wall Street. Hedge funds, meanwhile, were surfing the wave of easy money that inevitably results from putting banks in charge of interest rates and government spending. Said another way, when financial asset

Did Goldman Sachs’ Latest Move Into Main Street Banking Just Give Us A Warning About The Coming Financial Crisis
(Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein has claimed his company is “Doing God’s Work.”) If there were ever a signal that large investment banks may be preparing for financial crisis and that they’ll be using your money to bail themselves out when it hits, this could be it. According to a new report from the Financial Times via The Daily Star, mega-banking giant Goldman Sachs is now getting into the retail banking business and looking for more depositors to help fund their operations. The bank has rep

  Mistakes Were Made 
Beyond the Kubler-Ross maelstrom of denial, anger, depression, etc., besetting this spavined republic, lies the actual grief provoking it all — especially the shocking loss of national purpose embodied by the muppets and puppets onstage nightly vying to bring out the worst in us in an election season far from just silly. Judging from their demeanor in the so-called debates, the candidates seem not only sick of their opponents but of themselves, a

If it were up to Lloyd Blankfein, the Fed wouldn't raise rates right now
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein wouldn't raise rates if it were up to him.  Speaking at a Wall Street Journal event on Wednesday morning, with regard to whether he would raise interest rates this week — as some expect the Fed might — Blankfein said simply: "I wouldn't do it." Blankfein also said that the Fed should be data driven in its decision and that the economy doesn't seem to be ready for a rate hike.  And while markets are fixated on the first rate hike, Blankfein added that he's "not s

NYC power dining has been transformed, and an ex-Merrill Lynch exec is the mastermind
(Altamarea Group) There are two eras in modern New York City dining and nightlife — BC (before crisis), and AC (after crisis). The "crisis," naturally, refers to the financial crisis. The one that sucked money and life from the city just as it did the entire world. Before the crisis, Wall Street enjoyed itself brashly and boldly, unapologetically spending more on a bottle of liquor than a layman might spend on a month's rent. This was normal. So were lavish dinners at loud restaurants with 20-fo

Russian Bear Rattles Markets, but PPT Rides to the Rescue 
Investing is an inherently risky business with lots of uncertainties. At any given moment, the bullets can fly from any direction, and at a bare minimum, the investor hopes to emerge unscathed from the battlefield. But of course, the goal of investing is not just to break-even, but to earn a sizeable profit in the marketplace. And for the past 5-½ years, there has been no better way to maximize gains, than sticking with the traditional "Buy-and-Hold" strategy. It requires a lot of pa

I have lots to discuss ahead of a big weekend – when I travel to New York, to attend a party celebrating my mother’s 70th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary.  Between now and my flight this afternoon, however, I’ll discuss an exponentially growing list of “horrible headlines” – both in thus forum, and my weekly Audio Blog.  Frankly, I’m not sure where to start, as the list of reasons to avoid paper currencies – and embrace real money – knows no geographic borders; given that, for the first ti

John Crudele: Did Goldman use HFT to rig markets for the U.S. government
By John Crudele New York Post Monday, April 7, 2014 Yep, the stock market is rigged. I've been explaining this to you for nearly 20 years. But thanks to best-selling author 'Michael Lewis’ intriguing book "Flash Boys," which comes to the same conclusion, a much wider slice of America is talking about it now. But Lewis' book -- as well-written and riveting as his best-seller "Moneyball" -- touched on only one way the stock mar

Trillions in Subsidies, but Banks Still ‘Struggle’
Think you could make it in business with a trillion dollar subsidy? That’s a very conservative estimate of what banks can borrow each year at almost no cost, courtesy of Fed easing. Returning the favor, the banks plow the funny money into Treasury paper, stocks and bonds, then lend what crumbs remain to the riff-raff at usurious interest rates that sometimes exceed 20% — a tad more than Frankie the Camel charges customers.  What a great way to make money!  And yet, how do we account for this rec
