Collapse of the Financial Institutions
      or Money, Power & Greed
            or the Banking Industry
                      or TOO BIG TO FAIL

What can I say... this is a very scary section and yet a very real possibility!  But the movie "Too Big To Fail" is just part of the story... nothing has changed, we are still heading toward a train wreak.

Quote: "People are getting rich, not on how intelligent they are, or that they have a bright new idea that will help humanity, but on how well (fast) they can repackage immoral financial instruments and resell them without asking any moral questions!"

How to Rip-Off the Poorest of Society

A new report by National People's Action, The Predators' Creditors, reveals that amidst record high unemployment, foreclosures, and budget deficits, Wall Street's biggest banks are now helping the bottom feeders in the loan industry: Payday Lenders.

Big banks--the same banks who received TARP funds to bail them out--are extending billions of dollars in credit to payday loan companies that feed on the economic misery of urban and rural low income working families, with usuriously high interest rates at an average 455%.

Wells Fargo is the biggest single enabler of payday lenders, the report finds, followed by Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, US Bank, Banco Popular and Wachovia. Wells Fargo finances about one-third of this predatory industry based on SEC and other government filings from public companies only.

Banking Overview

I like Niall Ferguson video "Ascent of Money", because it steps you through the history of the banking industry. So much for the "old" rule-of-thumb for the banking industry: 3-6-3. Pay 3% on saving accounts, collect %6 on bank loans, and be on the golf course by 3:00pm.  I like the video "Money Masters" because it goes through the history of banking in a no nonsense manner.

Banking Crisis

Here is an explanation of what happened in the banking industry, and apparently the banks are back at it again. Why can't our governments put a stop to risky financial behavior? Is it because the government is doing the same thing? Lets ask them for a Balance Sheet (not a Budget).
