THE STUDENT LOAN BAILOUT HAS ARRIVED

theburningplatform.com / 22nd April 2014

Another Obama success story. Have the government take over the entire student loan industry in one fell swoop. Utilize the program as a way to artificially reduce the unemployment rate and to provide Keynesian stimulus to the economy as the “student” borrowers don’t actually go to class, but spend [...]

How the CEO of HFT Firm Virtu Financial is Demanding a Taxpayer Bailout in Florida

libertyblitzkrieg.com / By Michael Krieger / April 15, 2014

What the financial crisis, subsequent taxpayer bailouts, zero prosecutions of financial industry participants and further consolidation of the economy by oligarchs has taught us more than anything else is that the super rich and politically connected are not allowed to fail. Apparently, this may also apply [...]

Let QEdom Ring!… Or The One In Which Jamie Dimon Quotes Martin Luther King

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 04/10/2014 09:50 -0400

When one thinks of the bailout-taking, London-Whale-suffering, regulatory-fine-paying, pay-rise-taking CEO of JPMorgan, the first analogy is not the philosophical similarities between Jamie Dimon and Martin Luther King. But, according to Dimon’s letter to shareholders below, he feels injustice has been done and quotes MLK on the [...]

Greece To Issue First 5Y Bond Since Bailout At Lowest Yields Since 2009

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 04/09/2014 09:41 -0400

For the first time since the bailout/restructuring, Greece will issue long-term debt to the public markets.

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 04/09/2014 07:51 -0400

Another week, another Chinese default.

A month after Chaori Solar’s default turned on its head a long-held assumption that even high-yielding debt carried an implicit state guarantee, another Chinese firm has succumbed to the inevitable outcome resulting from a lack of cash flows. As a [...]

Central Banks Have a New Trick Up Their Sleeves… Will the Markets Buy It?

gainspainscapital.com / By Graham Summers / April 4, 2014

The global Central Banks are relying increasing on verbal intervention.

The reasoning here is very simple: actual monetary policy is proving to have marginal effects. In the US, every new wave of QE has had less and less impact on the stocks.

What the Hell is a “Bailout?”

lewrockwell.com / By Mark R. Crovelli / March 31, 2014

As the owner of a construction company, I am all too familiar with the concept of insolvency. Any company that assumes irresponsible risks, makes poor judgments, or that mismanages its cash flow, (in the sense that its current liabilities exceed available cash), is or will [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/25/2014 10:25 -0500

While, for now, depositors at Austria’s Hypo-Alde-Adria-Bank (nationalized in 2009) have not had assets confiscated, Austrian authorities are shifting in an unusual (scary precedent-setting) direction. Amid the resignation of the bank’s CEO, the government is taking aim at ‘speculators’ who dared to buy the bank’s bonds [...]
