Frankly: Oh What a Tangled Web (Part 1) | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

LIBOR..London Interbank Offered Rate (one of the fundamental benchmarks for global financial markets) is the primary benchmark for short-term interest rates globally, used as the basis for settlement of interest-rate contracts on many of the world's major futures and options exchanges; it has also been used as a barometer to measure the health of financial money markets and is used in many loan agreements throughout global markets including mortgage agreements. If LIBOR is broken, the financial system is broken and vice versa. This interbank lending rate is so important, in other words, that "the LIBOR contributions and processes followed by the contributor banks must meet the necessary regulatory obligations and observe the highest standards in ensuring the accuracy of the rate" (quoted from the British Bankers' Association statement on June 27th concerning the recently announced Financial Services Authority LIBOR investigation).
