Wall Street protesters scratch the surface

By Bill Wilson — If one has been following the news lately, it probably has been impossible to miss a nascent radical protest movement in New York City dubbed “Occupy Wall Street.”  On its face, it appears to be a typical leftist attempt to spark populist outrage against the supposed excesses of capitalism, and there may not be much more […]

EuroTARP: Much ado about nothing?

By Robert Romano — The embattled creditors of Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and other troubled sovereigns breathed a collective sigh of relief as Germany has overwhelmingly approved those creditors’ next round of bailouts.

Krugman’s Awakening?

By Bill Wilson – It’s the second time within a month, but I agree with the New York Times’ Paul Krugman.  This time, he writes that “bankers and wealthy individuals with lots of bonds in their portfolios” can count on the government to “protect the interests of creditors, no matter the cost”. Now, we would certainly disagree on which policies […]

Taxpayers Are Losing on General Motors Bailout

No surprise here, but taxpayers are definitely losing money on the bailout that was engineered by Obama and Bush for General Motors. As Shikha Dalmia wrote at Reason (bold text done for emphasis): …Bloomberg’s survey of 21 auto analysts put the average projected price for GM at $42.85 per share a year from now. This means that, outside of miracle, […]

Iceland’s Revolution Against International Bank Bailouts Goes Global

By Bill Wilson -In April, the people of Iceland went to the polls, decisively rejecting a bailout of British and Dutch investors who lost billions in the Icesave bank in 2008.  Iceland is the rare example of a nation that allowed its banks to fail in the wake of the financial crisis. Now it appears to be an example for […]
