How Safe Is My FDIC-Insured Bank Account? Well here is your answer.

Your bank account may not be as safe as you think (or hope).I thought the FDIC has full faith and credit backing by the US treasury? Actually, no, it does not. The language in Section 14 of the FDIC Act is clear and unambiguous (emphasis mine): (a) BORROWING FROM TREASURY.-- The Corporation is authorized to borrow from the Treasury, and the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to loan to the Corporation on such terms as may be fixed by the Corporation and the Secretary, such funds as in the judgment of the Board of Directors of the Corporation are from time to time required for insurance purposes, not exceeding in the aggregate $30,000,000,000 outstanding at any one time, subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury: Provided, That the rate of interest to be charged in connection with any loan made pursuant to this subsection shall not be less than an amount determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, taking into consideration current market yields on ou  Read Full Story

Is FHA the Next Disaster?
09-05-2009  •  Wall St. Pit 
We’ve seen this rodeo before, haven’t we. Someone starts raising questions about the quality of a loan portfolio and the capital standing behind it, a lot of confusing numbers get thrown around by the institution in question as it assures us all that nothing bad could happen and you know the rest of the story. One would hope that this would lead to a proper investigation by Congress in which the real economic risk is quantified but don’t count on it. The reality is that FHA has always taken too much risk Even though the housing crisis has pretty well documented that no or low downpayment loans are a prescription for a disaster, FHA continues to make them. Though ostensibly they require a 3.5% downpayment, there are any number of ways around that. The $8,000 tax credit has only exacerbated the problem. Many local government programs allow for the tax credit to be used for a downpayment. Moreover, FHA allows for downpayment gifts from family members and certain other parties.

Earlier in the summer, when passengers booked their online travel they had to provide the airline with exactly how their name appears on their government-issued identification card"whether it be a driver's license or a passport.

As the Lehman anniversary approaches, defenders of the financial sector struggle into position " partly in response to your comments (also here). They offer three main points: 1. We need finance to make the economy work. 2. Financial innovation delivers value, although it’s not perfect (but what is?) 3. Don’t kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Private sector capture of the state is bad enough, wherever it happens in the world.

Monetary policy should be protected from congressional politics. In the midst of the ongoing financial crisis, Congress is now considering a bill that would subject the Federal Reserve to congressional audits.

Editorial: Is Focus on Bank CEO Pay a Smokescreen for Federal Reserve?
09-05-2009  •  American Banking News 
Now that most of the big banks took bailout money in America, that assertion has been making the rounds in an attempt to take the focus off the real causes behind the failure of the American banking system. Of course I don’t feel sorry for the bankers in any way, as they knew this was coming when they went running to the government and Federal Reserve begging for handouts. So there’s no sympathy there from me in any way. The moment business runs to the government to access taxpayer money, they have essentially left the free market and are moving toward fascism and socialism, which has been proven over the long term to not work. So with many writers with socialists leanings and sympathies write about the pay of bank CEOs being the thing that led to the failure of the banking system, they’re either completely ignorant of the business of banking in general, or are being totally dishonest in their assertions. Does this mean the any business CEO should be rewarded for terrible p  Read Full Story

However, the summit threw out French and German proposals that each banker's bonus pot should be limited, in a decision which will be welcomed by City banks. The Financial Stability Board, an international grouping of regulators, has been tasked with devising detailed rules over bonus structures between now and the main summit. Some suspect it may go so far as to dictate certain percentages of a bank's profits which are allowed to be put towards bankers' bonuses.However, experts have warned that the crackdown will be extremely difficult to impose.  Read Full Story

Fed Profits From the Bailout? Don’t Count Those Chickens Before They Hatch
09-03-2009  •  Wall St. Pit 
There are three fundamental problems with these stories. The first is that it raises a question about the function of the Fed: should a branch of government seek profits at the expense of the private sector? It is ironic that Euroland’s regulators are calling for much more radical steps than Washington is willing to take. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy are calling for more regulation and for limits on executive compensation even as the Obama administration continues to argue that such limits would constrain the financial sector’s ability to retain the “best and the brightest”. If the bozos that created this crisis are the best that Wall Street can find, it would be better to shut down the US financial system than to keep them in charge. It is doubly ironic that Nigeria (a country that normally would not come immediately to mind as a role model) has actually charged the leadership of five of its major banks with crimes.

09-05-2009  •  WSJ 
Since we are moving toward socialism with ObamaCare, the time has come to do the same with other professions"especially lawyers. Physician committees can decide whether lawyers are necessary in any given situation. At a town-hall meeting in Portsmouth, N.H., last month, our uninformed lawyer in chief suggested that we physicians would rather chop off a foot than manage diabetes since we would make more money doing surgery. Then President Obama compounded his attack by claiming a doctor's reimbursement is between "$30,000" and "$50,000" for such amputations! (Actually, such surgery costs only about $1,500.) Physicians have never been so insulted. Because of these affronts, I will gladly volunteer for the important duty of controlling and regulating lawyers. Since most of what lawyers do is repetitive boilerplate or pushing paper, physicians would have no problem dictating what is appropriate for attorneys. We physicians know much more about legal practice t  Read Full Story

Your August Bailout Update: $393 Billion Outstanding
09-05-2009  •  ProPublica 
There’s no question that the taxpayer remains deep in the red. In total, $392.6 billion remains outstanding to 641 recipients ($297 billion under the TARP and $95.6 billion that’s gone to Fannie and Freddie). That total excludes the 35 companies that have returned a total of $71.6 billion. In August, the Treasury invested $129.8 million in nine banks (see our timeline for more details). It also put $10.7 billion more into Fannie Mae. The Treasury will likely invest or spend billions more. Fannie and Freddie will probably need billions more in assistance. And two major bailout programs have yet to start shelling out committed funds. Treasury plans to use up to $30 billion for its toxic securities program, which could begin this month. It has also set aside $50 billion for its mortgage modification program, which is already well underway. Under the program, participating loan servicers are only paid subsidies if the loans they modify survive a three-month trial period without defa  Read Full Story

   The Democrats and Obama helped create this Financial Crisis and are now creating another. Most people are led to believe that the fault for the current crisis rests totally on the banks.

However if you watch Cops like they say there is his side, her side and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. In that vein lets examine what led to the implementation of the crisis. Back in 2005, Fannie and Freddie were, after years of dominating, on the ropes. They were enmeshed in accounting scandals that led to turnover at the top. At one telling moment in late 2004, captured in an article by my American Enterprise Institute colleague Peter Wallison, the Securities and Exchange Comiission's chief accountant told disgraced Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines that Fannie's position on the relevant accounting issue was not even ``on the page'' of allowable

Proposed new rules meant to help police handle G-20 protests faced a barrage of verbal rotten eggs at a Pittsburgh City Council public hearing, and appear to be headed for a close vote.

The hearing was held to get views on rules that would allow police to cite people wearing masks or carrying items from pipes to high-powered rifles if they appear intent on thwarting police dispersal orders. It became an outlet for concern about what some called the pending militarization of Downtown, and what others characterized as the demonization of protest.
