Anyone who thinks that the IUA is not run by Wall street and the BIG banks is dreaming.

QUOTE
There has been outrage in the United States at the prospect of Congress repealing some parts of a law designed to stop another massive multi-billion-dollar government bailout of the banks.

A $US1.1 trillion budget bill had been agreed to by negotiators for both parties, but then some Democrats found that in exchange for more money for enforcement, one of the provisions was to roll back part of what is called the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

It would allow banks to again use money for derivatives trading and other exotic and risky trades under the protection of federal government insurance.

The provision was slipped into the budget, which is designed to keep the US government funded until the middle of next year.

Financial reform groups have called it "astonishing", "appalling" and without a "sane motivation".

Some Democrats said it would only benefit a few of the biggest banks, saying the language included in the repeal was exactly the same as language written by lobbyists for global bank Citigroup.


As has been said before, always follow the money.

Hope this link works from CNBC--- as Santelli takes on the FED asking one simple question of the FED:

What are you afraid of?------- and boy doesn't he get stuck in, have a listen to some real straight talking laugh.gif
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CNBC's Rick Santelli had some tough talk for the Federal Reserve and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke on CNBC Wednesday morning. "The one question I want to ask Ben is, 'Ben, what are you afraid of?'" Santelli asked.

"CNBC, all the channels that cover business, we have person after person after person, buy side, sell side, upside, downside, how is the economy? The economy is great. What about stocks? You got to buy them. What if they break? You have to buy the dips. What's wrong with the economy? I don't hear these people saying anything is wrong with the economy. So what's wrong, Ben? Why can't we get out of crisis management mode?" Santelli said.


Watch the whole rant in the video above.

QUOTE Hi Dave---typical misreporting as usual by those who don't understand the tortured "thinking" of Helicopter Ben!

Make no mistake QE3 (or something similiar) will happen, just compare the subtle change of wording of the key phrase this month as compared with his June mumblings:


Mick--from memory yesterdays post was an add on to the one I made before QE3 started, QE3 is still in progress.

Still think the FED are in any way sane--try this Bloomberg clip overnight--they are as mad as meat axes including their leader the bearded one.

In all seriousness one fine day our grandchildren will have to pick up the pieces much as the poor Ford workers are now having to do, it seems that pouring tax payers money into lost causes simply compounds the end consequence, unfortunate for those picking up the train wreck left.

Trouble is that the FED have been at it for about 20 years!

"""""Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President John Williams, emphasizing the need for policy flexibility, said any move to reduce the pace of the central bank's bond buying could be followed by an increase should the economy weaken again. "Even if we do adjust downward our purchases, it doesn't mean we're now in some autopilot of moving in the same direction," Williams, 50, said in an interview yesterday in San Francisco. "You could even imagine a scenario where we adjust it downward based on good data and then adjust it back" if the economy weakened.""""""

At 12 years old, Bernanke won the South Carolina state spelling bee, despite being initially told that he had misspelled a word. Bernanke, certain he was right, left the stage anyway. "He came back on stage and said he had spelled it correctly," his mother Edna recalled to the Washington Post. "And he was right." Bernanke was later eliminated at the national bee when he misspelled the word edelweiss.

Taught himself calculus in high school because his school did not offer the course. He went on to score a 1590 out of 1600 on his SAT. Bernanke also played the alto saxophone.

Earned a B.A. in economics from Harvard University in 1975. He was given the distinction of having the best undergraduate economics thesis and was named the outstanding senior in the economics department.

Bernanke and his wife Anna married on May 29, 1978. They have two children.

In 1979, Bernanke received his economics PhD from MIT and began teaching at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. Six years later he joined the Princeton faculty as professor of economics and public affairs. In 1996, he was named chairman of Princeton's economics department.

Served two elected terms as a member of the school board in Montgomery Township, N.J., a position that he cites as being formative to his policy-making experience.

Became a governor of the Federal Reserve in 2002, taking leave from his position at Princeton.

Appointed chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers in 2005, shortly before being nominated to lead the Fed.

The sooner Ben Bernanke leaves the FED or is removed the better, just watched clips of his QandA session after telling US Congress that he wasn't in the frame of mind to back off QE3 any time soon, then in the Q/A session he clouds the issue by double talking, little wonder the markets went into a tailspin.

Think his term ends anyway December 2013, which date cannot come soon enough, send him back to academia---- we want somebody who is street smart leading the worlds biggest economy not the current "misfits". IMHO.

No QE3 - As reported on the radio this morning



Hi Dave---typical misreporting as usual by those who don't understand the tortured "thinking" of Helicopter Ben!

Make no mistake QE3 (or something similiar) will happen, just compare the subtle change of wording of the key phrase this month as compared with his June mumblings:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in June:

The Committee is prepared to take further action as appropriate to promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvement in labor market conditions in a context of price stability.


Today:

The Committee will closely monitor incoming information on economic and financial developments and will provide additional accommodation as needed to promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvement in labor market conditions in a context of price stability
