The Secret History of the Financial Crisis - Prague Post | money money money | Scoop.it

Nowhere is this more apparent than in accounts of the global financial crisis. The official history portrayed the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and other major central banks as embracing coordinated action to rescue the global financial system from disaster. But recently published transcripts of 2008 meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee, the Fed’s main decision-making body, reveal that the Fed has effectively emerged from the crisis as the world’s central bank, while continuing to serve primarily American interests

Harold James examines the real story behind the international response to the near-meltdown in 2008. - Project Syndicate | money money money | Scoop.it

PRINCETON – Balzac’s great novel Lost Illusions ends with an exposition of the difference between “official history,” which is “all lies,” and “secret history” – that is, the real story. It used to be possible to obscure history’s scandalous truths for a long time – even forever. Not anymore.

“Follow the money,” the Watergate informant Deep Throat supposedly advised Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in a dark parking garage.

Back in the 1970s, they were following money you could find, such as cash and checks. Today, it’s a bit harder to track because of Bitcoin, the virtual currency favored by libertarians and people who don’t want anyone to follow their money.

Does The Trail Of Dead Bankers Lead Somewhere?

Does The Trail Of Dead Bankers Lead Somewhere? | money money money | Scoop.it

What are we to make of this sudden rash of banker suicides?  Does this trail of dead bankers lead somewhere?  Or could it be just a coincidence that so many bankers have died in such close proximity?  I will be perfectly honest and admit that I do not know what is going on.  But there are some common themes that seem to link at least some of these deaths together.  First of all, most of these men were in good health and in their prime working years.  Secondly, most of these "suicides" seem to have come out of nowhere and were a total surprise to their families.  Thirdly, three of the dead bankers worked for JP Morgan.  Fourthly, several of these individuals were either involved in foreign exchange trading or the trading of derivatives in some way.  So when "a foreign exchange trader" jumped to his death from the top of JP Morgan's Hong Kong headquarters this morning, that definitely raised my eyebrows.  These dead bankers are starting to pile up, and something definitely stinks about this whole thing.
