Helicopter Ben, a different view--mind you the veracity of this piece depends on the ACTUAL US inflation figure.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The numbers are proving Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke’s critics wrong.

More than a year after Republicans from House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio to presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas warned that the Fed’s second round of asset purchases risked a sharp acceleration in prices, the surge has failed to materialize. The personal-consumption-expenditures price index rose 2.4 percent for the 12 months ending in December, near the central bank’s 2 percent target.

Interesting article flower, I think this is a working link to it, yours, for a change, doesn’t work tongue.gif

Unfortunately, in October 1953, Harold Medina, the presiding federal judge in the case, threw the antitrust lawsuit out of court. In an extraordinary 417-page ruling -- a must-read for anyone interested in the history of Wall Street -- Medina decided that the government’s case rested solely on “circumstantial evidence” and that the banks didn’t violate antitrust laws.

The remaining banks have increased their hold over the marketplace and continue to collude when it comes to pricing their services.

repeat and rinse.

and dont forget the millions of dollars these companies have paid to settle actions bought against them over the years. Quite often only a number of years between very similar actions.

those companies are as crooked as Owen Wilson's nose.

Almost 65 years ago, in 1947, the U.S. government sued 17 leading Wall Street investment banks, charging them with effectively colluding in violation of antitrust laws.

In its complaint -- which was front-page news at the time - -- the Justice Department alleged that these firms had created "an integrated, overall conspiracy and combination" starting in 1915 "and in continuous operation thereafter, by which" they developed a system "to eliminate competition and monopolize 'the cream of the business' of investment banking."

The U.S. argued that the top Wall Street investment banks - - including Morgan Stanley (MS) (the lead defendant) and Goldman Sachs -- had created a cartel by which, among other things, it set the prices charged for underwriting securities and for providing mergers-and-acquisitions advice, while boxing out weaker competitors from breaking into the top tier of the business and getting their fair share of the fees.

The government argued that the big firms placed their partners on their clients' boards of directors, putting them in the best possible position to know when a piece of business was coming down the pike and to make sure that any competitors were given a very hard time should they dare to try to win it.

Interesting read, given that the FED/FOMC seems today to be overpopulated by the same ex US Investment Bank types after the spate of takeovers which rapidly followed the GFC demise of Lehman's!

Good one, Nelson Aldrich from memory, the prick behind the Federal Reserve (on the Govt side) with Paul Warburg leading the private side, they got their way 99 years ago.
