The superintendent of New York State’s Department of Financial Services said on Monday that his department has “launched an inquiry into the appropriate regulatory guidelines that it should put in place for virtual currencies,” the most prominent of which is bitcoin. The superintendent, Benjamin M. Lawsky, said that preliminary inquiries have found that there are virtual currency businesses acting as money transmitters, but without the proper safeguards in place.

The Global Financial Crisis

The Global Financial Crisis | money money money | Scoop.it

From time to time in human history there occur events of a truly seismic significance, events that mark a turning point between one epoch and the next, when one orthodoxy is overthrown and another takes its place. The significance of these events is rarely apparent as they unfold: it becomes clear only in retrospect, when observed from the commanding heights of history. By such time it is often too late to act to shape the course of such events and their effects on the day-to-day working lives of men and women and the families they support.

The Tremendous Benefit To American Business From Central Bank Policy In The ... - Business Insider | money money money | Scoop.it

It has been a busy two weeks. The Leen’s Lodge gathering added an intense interlude of high-powered conversation and analysis. The Yellen-Summers headlines now have two added mystery names per President Obama. The Fed (Federal Reserve) tapering talk adds the question “What is the policy?” to the question “Who will be making the policy?” Markets are going through gyrations in both bonds and stocks. And we see surprising reactions in foreign currencies, with the Japanese yen strengthening while changes in policy at the Bank of England have resulted in a market reaction opposite to what the BOE expected.
