Today on Crash Course Economics, Adriene and Jacob talk about the 2008 financial crisis and the US Goverment's response to the troubles. So, all this starts with home mortgages, and the use of mortgages as an investment instrument. For years, it seemed like the US housing market would go up and up. Like a bubble or something. It turns out it was a bubble. But not the good kind. And the government response was...interesting. Anyway, why are you reading this? Watch the video!

President Obama came to ground zero of the mortgage crisis--Arizona to announce his plan to help those with distressed mortgages. Now that the details have been released it turns out to be not only a waste--but worthless: http://tinyurl.com/72mj88

http://www.cambridge-credit.org -- Transcription: Hello, and welcome to Your Money 2.0. I’m Christopher Viale, president and CEO of Cambridge Credit Counseling Corp. Recently, the Obama Administration introduced its Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan. Details have been a bit scarce, but more information will be made available before implementation on March 4th. The Plan approaches the housing crisis on two fronts – refinancing, and the modification of loan terms. Both parts try to make circumstances more comfortable for consumers by reducing their monthly mortgage payments. Overall, the administration anticipates the plan will help close to 9 million Americans maintain homeownership. When it comes to refinancing, the Plan would allow a homeowner to secure a reduced interest rate by easing the lending criteria for loans owned or guaranteed through Government Sponsored Enterprises, or GSE’s, like Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. This provision could help a portion of the 15 million American homeowners who owe much more on their loan than their house is currently worth. The revised guidelines would allow homeowners to refinance up to 105% of a home’s current value, even if there is little or no equity in the home. This could help 4 to 5 million homeowners roughly a third of those mentioned earlier, save about $200 a month. The modification aspect of the plan is designed to assist homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure. The definition of “at risk” has been expanded to include those who may not have yet missed a loan payment, but who have the potential to do so. Here, the Plan hinges on lender participation and the affordability of the monthly mortgage payment. First, the lender will need to work with the consumer to reduce the mortgage payment to no more than 38% of his or her gross income. From there, the government will match lender concessions dollar-for-dollar to further reduce the monthly payment to 31% of the consumer’s debt-to-income ratio.

Transcription: Hello and welcome to Your Money 2.0. I'm Thomas Fox, community outreach director at Cambridge Credit Counseling. From the beginning of 2007 until early 2012, approximately 4 million families lost their homes to foreclosure. While the wave of foreclosures was unsettling, the stories that emerged in 2010 about the process being riddled with sloppy record-keeping are far more disturbing. These issues came to light because of the practice known as robo-signing through which families lost their homes based on forged or unreviewed documents. After a year of investigations and negotiations, the state attorneys general and the federal government announced a 26 billion dollar settlement with five of the biggest mortgage lenders over improprieties from robo-signing to failing to negotiate in good faith with homeowners. Those lenders include Bank of America, JPMorgan, Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and Ally Financial. How do we get here and what's this settlement offer? Let’s take a look. Over the last decade, homeownership exploded across the United States. Banks and other lenders spend billions of dollars to develop a seamless operation that took new mortgages, bundled them into securities, and sold them as investments. While, I'm not going to get into the depth of shenanigans evolved in this approach suffice it to say things that not work out is the lenders and investors had anticipated. When borrowers began to default banks found themselves in a game of catch-up and they failed to devote enough manpower to deal with the magnitude of the crisis. The institutions inability to keep up with homeowners requests for work out agreements forced them to cut corners. When lenders began robo-signing foreclosures they landed in the crosses of just about every consumer advocate and lawmaker. Instead of the required review of documents lenders had automated the process and inadvertently began foreclosing on homeowners who are not in default or owed no money. That’s the background, let's review the settlement. The terms require the five lenders to contribute at least ten billion dollars for reducing principles on loans for borrowers who are either delinquent or an imminent risk of default and are underwater, meaning they owe more on their mortgage in their home are worth. At least three billion dollars is earmarked for refinancing loans for borrowers current on their mortgages and underwater. Up to seven billion dollars will go towards other kinds of assistance, including forbearance of principal for unemployed borrows, anti-blight programs, and short sales. One of the more controversial portions of the settlement is the 1.5 billion dollars set aside for cash payments to borrows whose homes were sold or taken in foreclosure between January 1st 2008 and December 31st 2011. Officials estimate that as many as 750,000 borrowers could receive checks for 1500 to 2000 dollars, which barely covers the cost of title insurance or moving. The settlement also calls for three and a half billion dollars to be used to repay public funds loss as a result of services misconduct and to fund housing counselors, legal aid, and other public programs determined by the attorneys general. However, many states are already considering those funds to fill budget shortfalls or help with other programs such as prolong unemployment. An additional 1 billion dollars will be paid by Bank of America to resolve a separate federal investigation related to a legend wrongful conduct involving inflated appraisals of Federal Housing Administration insured mortgages. Half of that 1 billion dollars will be used to fund a loan modification program for countrywide borrowers who are underwater on their mortgages. Federal and state officials promoted the settlement as a significant step in holding the banks accountable for abusive and illegal foreclosure paperwork practices and as one will provide relief to homeowners. However despite the billions secured to help homeowners, the aide will help a relatively small portion of the millions of borrowers who are delinquent and facing foreclosure. Especially since mortgages owned by the government's housing finance agencies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, will not be covered under the deal. That excludes about half of the nation's mortgages. The door is still open for further actions against the banking industry. Prosecutors and regulators still have the right to investigate other elements that contributed to the housing bubble, like the Assembly of risky mortgages into securities that were later sold to investors and soured as well as insurance and tax fraud. The official settlement has yet to be released, but we'll keep you up to date as more information becomes available. Until next time, I'm Thomas Fox for Cambridge Credit Counseling.

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe It's one of the biggest financial bail outs in the history of the United States and its impact is being felt around the world. The US Federal Government has taken over the mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. The two acccount for nearly half of all the outstanding mortgages in the US. Together they own or guarantee mortgages worth more than $5 trillion - almost the equivalent of Japan's GDP. And the threat to them is very real because of the housing market collapse. One in ten Americans is behind on payments or faces repossession and both companies are losing billions. John Terret takes a look at the details of the bailout plan.

SHOTLIST 1. US President George W Bush walks to the podium. 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W Bush, US President "Good morning. My administration continues to work with the congress on a rescue plan and we need a rescue plan. This is hard work, our proposal is a big proposal and the reason it's big and substantial is because we've got a big problem. We also need to move quickly. Now anytime you have a plan this big, that is moving this quickly, that requires legislative approval it creates challenges. Members want to be heard, they want to express their opinions and they should be allowed to express their opinions. There are disagreements over aspects of the rescue plan, but there is no disagreement that something substantial must be done. The legislative process is sometimes not very pretty, but we are going to get a package passed, we will rise to the occasion. Republicans and Democrats will come together and pass a substantial rescue plan. Thank you very much" 3. Bush walks away from podium STORYLINE US President George W. Bush made fresh appeal on Friday for Congress to move quickly on his proposal for a 700 (b) billion US dollar program to stabilise the U.S. financial markets. Speaking at the White House, the day after an apparent agreement on the broad outline of a relief bill fell apart, Bush called on both parties to rise to the occasion. Bush said he expected that individual politicians would have disagreements about the details of the plan but said there was no choice but to act, promising "we are going to get a package passed." Democrats claim Bush was scrambling to bring rebellious members of his own party behind the multi-billion US dollar bailout. The rescue package would remove (b) billions of dollars of bad mortgages and other risky assets off the books of financial firms, in a bid to free up lending and revive the economy.

After reviewing this documentary, and checking the evidence, I think the answer will be clear to you. Special thanks to Michael C. Ruppert, Mark H. Gaffney, and Kevin Ryan for solving the crimes of 9/11 with their amazing research. This video is a compilation of evidence they have uncovered. UNITED States of America - It is important to remember that the 9/11 Black Op was staged ten (10) months after the Bush-Cheney-NAZI Paperclip NSA theft of the year 2000 presidential election. It is also important to remember that the illegal NAZI Paperclip NSA spying started the day after the illegal inauguration of Bush and Cheney in January of 2001. Note: 9/11 was Bush FRAUD's NAZI German style Reichstag fire and after Bush FRAUD rammed the illegal UN-Constitutional Patriot Act (that was actually written in advance of 9/11) down the throats of Congress resulting in the immediate shredding of the U.S. Constitution and a pseudo declaration of Martial Law that continues to this day with current alleged President Barack Obama administering the occupation. Reference: It is also important to remember that Bush FRAUD's Patriot Act aka Bush's NAZI German Enabling Act gave the U.S. Federal Reserve and crooked U.S. banks emergency control over the U.S. Treasury. Bush then blew out $7.3 TRILLION out of the U.S. Treasury with his illegal UN-Constitutional war in Iraq (there were NO weapons of mass destruction). Bush and his British fellow war criminal counter party, Anthony Blair, both need to be arrested. Bush and his criminal Treasury Secretary Henry 'Hank' Paulson then destroyed the U.S. economy allowing crooked U.S. banks to issue and trade (derivatives) on fraudulent mortgage-backed securities that wiped everything out in September of 2008. The massive Wipe Out then led to a massive TREASONOUS Bush FRAUD - Nancy Pelosi Ponzi Bail Out by the American Taxpayers. P.S. At this hour Chinese banks remain broke with ass backwards worthless derivatives tied to HSBC Hong Kong and U.S. Bank of America. Obviously this doesn't tell us everything about 9/11, but it's nevertheless a very good summary of many connections that clearly show the official story to be little more than a Disney fantasy production.

Ray Bassett: (212) 621-7537 HEADLINE: Bush details help for troubled homeowners CAPTION: (date) President Bush outlined ways that the federal government can help troubled borrowers keep their homes Friday to try to address rising foreclosures fueled by the mortgage crisis, an effort that is not aimed at bailing out lenders, either. (Aug. 31) ***** [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] President Bush Friday outlined the first efforts by the White House to address a wave of home foreclosures that are expected to snowball. ((FONT: White House)) "The markets are in a period of transition as participants re-assess and re-price risk. This process has been unfolding for some time and its going to take some time to fully play out as it is now America's economy remains strong enough to weather any turbulence." He urged lenders re-finance homeowners who are unable to pay their monthly mortgages. He also called on Congress to pass a host of reforms that would give tax and other incentives to people who need to re-finance their homes. "It's not the government's job to bail out speculators or those who made the decision to buy a home they knew they could never afford. Yet there are many American homeowners who can get through this difficult time with a little flexibility from their lenders or little help from their government." Bush's plan would allow homeowners with good credit histories, who nonetheless cannot afford their mortgages - to re-finance using the Federal Housing Administration. ((FONT: Tim Paradis, AP Financial Writer)) "I don't know if it's immediately clear how homeowners will benefit. But I think it was more a re-assurance that the government hasn't forgotten them, and that some people who are really struggling it seems there could be reforms that will help them pay their mortgages." Over the next year and a half, an estimated 2 million adjustable rate mortgages will be re-set to higher rates.

http://realestatemarketingthisweek.com - Real Estate Marketing - Foreclosure rates on Forbearance Agreements done with banks reaches 58% - With Michael J Barnes and Dan Havey of Real Estate Marketing This Week Part 3 - In studio with us today on this fine New years eve is Dan Havey, the co founder of the modification hotline as well as the author of The Foreclosure Sharks a great white paper he put together. He is also the author of Real Estates Future and this segment we are talking about loan modifications and some specific information. You also have a great story to tell about this to. Well unfortunately I have too many stories about people who have had to go through foreclosures, bankruptcies, loan modifications. The one story I want to talk about real quick is a friend of mine who unbeknownst to me went out and did a loan modification on her own and not to get into a whole bunch of technical details on it she ended up getting a pretty decent interest rate because they actually cut her mortgage payment in half and she was pretty happy about that. She owed a little bit more than the house was worth, she wasnt terribly upside down, but by the time they got done with her she certainly was going to be because the modification, and actually I should not call it a modification, I should call it a forbearance agreement, what they did to her was to say, OK we will cut your interest rate in half, we will cut your monthly payment in half, but we will take all of that deferred interest and tack it onto the back end of the loan. So that by the time her interest rate went back to where it had been, it was going to adjust up over the next five years, so that within that five year time period she was actually going to owe $60,000 in back interest on top of the principal balance that she had before she went to go talk to her bank. What kind of a deal is that? I didnt think it was a very good one and she ended up eventually not taking it and just recently let the house go back to the bank, because she just looked at it and said, Wait a second here, I am already $20,000 upside down, by the time Im done with you guys I will be $80,000 upside down and so great I get a cheaper payment for a while. She moved into a rental property that was even cheaper then what she would have had to pay to stay in the house and from what she tells me the house is nicer. Some of the unfortunate scenarios that come up that we get to see. Unfortunately we talk to lots of people that have similar situations, trying to do these on their own and it is possible to do a loan modification on your own. We know that, the program is designed for you to do that. The problem is it generally does not work out. The re-default rate on loan modifications done on your own is significantly higher than loan modifications facilitated by an attorney that is representing you, for a number of reasons. Number one you have to pay an attorney to represent you. The other is that I think you are going to get a better modification based its not just a negotiation between you and the loss mitigation department for the bank. We are talking about using a professional attorney who is a trained negotiator to negotiate on your behalf with another attorney. By the way, theyre not talking to the same loss mitigation people in India that you may be talking too. Here are some numbers that just came out from John Dugan who is the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and they did a study of the loan modifications that have been done to date. In many cases these were forbearance agreements, not loan modifications. If an individual talks to his bank, generally speaking he will not get the same as result as what an attorney would do, so most of these are really forbearance agreements. And in that case, 36% had defaulted or were 30 days past due after 6 months and 58% were in default after 8 months. Again that is 58% in default after eight months and I saw some numbers the other day and unfortunately I didnt bring them in with me today, that according to some study of the very few modifications that have been done using an attorney, I say very few, but it is still thousands or tens of thousands, but few compared to what is getting done directly with the bank, the number is only like 5% of the ones done with an attorney have re-defaulted and again I dont have the numbers with me so I cant site the source... http://realestatemarketingthisweek.com/foreclosure-rates-on-forbearance-agreements-reaches-58/

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen regarding the massive buy-up of mortgage bond debt by the Federal Reserve. According to Reuters, "The Federal Reserve bought $7.029 billion of agency mortgage-backed securities in the week from Sep. 28 to Oct. 4, compared with $6.937 billion purchased the previous week..." On top of all of this, the Fed is selling none of this debt! Of course in 2006 and 2007, mortgage backed secrities were huge. As were collateralized debt obligations and credit default swaps. This vast manipulation of the markets based in debt and derivatives lead to the massive housing bubble burst/crash in 2007. We are now seeing a huge return of mortgage backed securities as the Federal Reserve continues to print vast amounts of worthless fiat currency. The combination of market and monetary manipulation is brewing up an epic storm that's due to touch down at any time. This will lead to a very subservient impoverished public. John breaks down how this will affect the average person, how it struck in 2007 and how it will strike in the near future. The bubble is inflating more by the day and it's becoming more and more unsustainable. This is why people must be financially responsible and self sustainable. The state and banking system loves an indebted populace and individuals must get the upperhand and provide their own solutions. Stay tuned for more from WAM!

UPDATE: Government may soon back troubled mortgage giants By ALAN ZIBEL, AP September 6, 2008 WAS. - The government is expected to take over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as soon as this weekend in a monumental move designed to protect the mortgage market from the failure of the two companies, which together hold or guarantee half of the nation's mortgage deb... Some of the details of the intervention, which could cost taxpayers billions, were not yet available,... The news, first reported on The Wall Street Journal's Web site, came after stock markets closed. In after-hours trading Fannie Mae's shares plunged $1.54, or 22 percent, to $5.50. Freddie Mac's shares fell $1.06, or almost 21 percent, to $4.04. Common stock in the companies will be worth little to nothing after the government's actions. The news also followed a report Friday by the Mortgage Bankers Association that more than 4 million American homeowners with a mortgage, a record 9 percent, were either behind on their payments or in foreclosure at the end of June. That confirmed what investors saw in Fannie and Freddie's recent financial results: trouble in the mortgage market has shifted to homeowners who had solid credit but took out exotic loans with little or no proof of their income and assets. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lost a combined $3.1 billion between April and June. Half of their credit losses came from these types of risky loans with ballooning monthly payments. Critics say the open-ended nature of the rescue package could expose taxpayers to billions of dollars of potential losses. Supporters, however, argue the Bush administration had little choice but to support Fannie and Freddie, which together hold or guarantee $5 trillion in mortgages — almost half the nation's total. Concern has been growing that a government rescue of Fannie and Freddie could not only wipe out common stockholders, but also be costly for scores of investment, banking and insurance companies that hold billions of dollars in their preferred shares. Fannie Mae was created by the government in 1938, and was turned into a shareholder-owned company 30 years later. Freddie Mac was established in 1970 to provide competition for Fannie. But the epic decision highlights the size of the threats facing the housing market and the economy. On Friday, Nevada regulators shut down Silver State Bank, the 11th failure this year of a federally insured bank.

Tell them to think about all the Big Bucks, Your Bucks, My Bucks, our government has spent bailing out the many Fat Cats and see if they will then say "Socialism is a dirty word, it's EVIL!". Yeah, right, but only if you're POOR.

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Shaun Donovan answers questions from the press about President Obama's plan to help families who are having trouble meeting their mortgage payments. Donovan told the press: "There were a number of pieces to what the President talked about today, but most importantly, he talked about middle-class families who have been playing by the rules, doing everything right, paying their mortgages on time, and have not been able to benefit from record-low interest rates. Through strong administrative action, as part of our We Can't Wait efforts across the administration, last fall we took very important steps to open up refinancing for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac borrowers who are underwater. But today we still have too many families who may live next door to a family that, just like them, is paying their bills on time with their mortgage, and only because they have a Fannie Mae or a Freddie Mac or an FHA mortgage, they've been able to lower their bills by an average of $3,000, and as a result help not only themselves, their neighborhood, but also the economy more broadly. And yet we have other families who are in exactly the same position, been responsible, and yet because they don't have a Fannie Mae or a Freddie Mac or an FHA mortgage, have been unable to benefit from the lowest interest rates in half a century. As the President said in his State of the Union, we need to get back to American values that are about everybody being responsible, playing by the same set of rules, and everybody having a fair shake if they're doing the right thing and being responsible. That's what fundamentally this announcement was about today -- was making sure that those families, any family that's doing the right thing, can benefit from the record-low interest rates that we have today. The second main point that he made was about needing strong, clear rules of the road for how our mortgage system is going to operate going forward. And so he announced a Homeowner Bill of Rights that will make sure that when a family is making the single-most important economic decision of their lives, purchasing a home, that they will get fair, simple, transparent treatment. No hidden fees; clear explanation on a single, short form of what they are signing up for, without conflicts of interest. And not only when they buy their home but as they pay their mortgage over time, as a mortgage is what we call serviced by an institution after they bought that home, that they can expect to be treated fairly and transparently as well. No more lost paperwork while they are trying to get help. No more getting a foreclosure notice while they?re negotiating with their servicer because they?ve lost their job or had a medical emergency, and a very clear right of appeal where they may be going through a foreclosure if they?ve been treated wrongly or wrongly foreclosed on. Those are the simple, straightforward principles that were in that Homeowner Bill of Rights, and that was the other major piece of what the President talked about this morning."

Meltdown is a four-part investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that brought down the financial world. The show begins with the 2008 crash that pushed 30 million people into unemployment, brought countries to the edge of insolvency and turned the clock back to 1929. But how did it all go so wrong? Lack of government regulation; easy lending in the US housing market meant anyone could qualify for a home loan with no government regulations in place. Also, London was competing with New York as the banking capital of the world. Gordon Brown, the British finance minister at the time, introduced "light touch regulation" - giving bankers a free hand in the marketplace. Meltdown moves on to examine the epidemic of fear that caused the world's banks to stop lending and how the people began their fight back. Finally, it asks how the world can prepare for the next crisis even as it recognises that this one is far from over. We hear about the sheikh who says the crash never happened; a Wall Street king charged with fraud; a congresswoman who wants to jail the bankers; and the world leaders who want a re-think of capitalism. http://www.RebelMystic.com

Want to refinance that Jumbo loan, http://MFGCapitalFunding.com but there is no help other than Strategic Default? We have a solution to regain equity in your home. Keep your credit intact and shave thousands off your current mortgage. This fast and simple process can get you back right side up in your home. Don't contemplate a Strategic Default until you have seen our solution. Call (850) 368-7177 or check this video to see if you qualify. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZECBmBQI6Ok Jumbo Mortgages May Be Next In Line To Default Do you have a big mortgage and good credit but not much equity -- maybe you are even underwater? Do you see little chance that your homes market value will improve much during the coming 3 to 7 years? If you answered yes to both those questions -- and thousands of homeowners across the country could- you are in a category that lenders need to worry about MOST! Prime Jumbo borrowers who once were thought of to be among the safest bets, now are the most likely to opt for a strategic default and walk away from their homes. That's because an exceptionally high number of jumbo owners -- many in high-cost markets hit by real estate deflation over the past several years- are stuck with persistent negative equity. More than half of the jumbos analyzed by Moody's where owners are still making payments have home market values lower than their outstanding loan balances. Meanwhile FICO says strategic defaults -- in which owners who CAN afford to keep paying their loans, but see no economic rationale for doing so and stop making payments -- continue to be a "Growing Problem." The estimated number of mortgages underwater is at least 12 million, and 30% of all defaults on loans are strategic, according to Joanne M. Gaskin, FICO's predictive analytics director. At least 4 of the 10 largest lenders are contacting these high-risk borrowers and offering financial solutions plus information about the costs associated with strategic walkaways. "How much have I lost on the value of my home?" "What is the velocity of change?" That is, "how fast have I lost market value, and is my situation getting worse?" And, "How long will it take to recapture what I've lost?" These are the questions Jumbo home owners are asking themselves right now and when the answers are grim and the prospects for equity recovery distant, the probability that the owners will plot a strategic departure goes sharply up. Most consumers have a pretty good idea of what the market is doing in their local neighborhoods, but what they don't often know, however, are the penalties they face for walking away. These include Triple-Digit drops in credit scores- which will hamper their ability to rent a house or obtain credit for years- plus the possibility that lenders will find a way to seek recovery of what they owe after the foreclosure proceedings. Ultimately, strategic default for many owners boils down to a calculation... Are the costs, financial and otherwise, worth the relief from an albatross mortgage? Thousands of jumbo borrowers are struggling with that calculation right now, and a lot of them are likely to bail. But, what if there were a solution that allowed the home owner to save hundreds of thousands off their mortgage, keep their good credit, regain some equity, keep their home and not worry about getting a 1099 from the bank for the loss in the mortgage value. Well, there is a way. We can help jumbo loan holders get the solutions they need to change their situation and avoid foreclosure and ruining their credit for years. This is NOT a loan modification or a short sale which DOES ruin your credit. To find out more call today 850 368 7177 to see if you qualify to save hundreds of thousands on your mortgage and take back control of your home and your life. Please take a moment to share this video with your friends and family who you know are struggling with these tough questions and calculations right now and are considering walking away. Pick up the phone and get them to watch this video, or share on Facebook and Twitter and let them know there is a solution. Thank you for watching and we look forward to hearing from you soon and solving your upside down mortgage problems. Call now 850-368-7177 for more details before it's too late. http://MFGCapitalFunding.com

WASHINGTON — As financial markets shuddered and then nearly imploded in 2008, the Federal Reserve opened its vault to the world on a scope much wider and deeper than previously disclosed. Citigroup, struggling to stay afloat, sought help from the Fed at least 174 times during one remarkable 13-month period. Barclays, the British bank, at one point owed nearly $48 billion to the Fed. Even better-off banks like Goldman Sachs took advantage of Fed loans offered at rock-bottom rates. The Fed's efforts to stave off a financial crisis reached far beyond Wall Street, touching manufacturers like General Electric, the Detroit automakers and Harley-Davidson, central banks from Britain to Japan and insurers and pension funds in Sweden and South Korea. Under orders from Congress, the Fed on Wednesday released details of more than 21,000 transactions under the array of emergency lending programs and other arrangements it conjured up in response to the crisis. The disclosures, which the Fed had resisted, offer the most detailed portrait of a panicky period in which the Fed lent money to banks, brokers, businesses and investors to keep the financial system functioning. The documents show that some of the biggest names in American business were either coming to the Fed in need of a bailout, or trying to make money at a time when the Fed was trying to entice investors back into the markets. Among the latter were prominent investors and entrepreneurs like John A. Paulson and Michael S. Dell, and the pension funds of the Philadelphia Teamsters and Omaha's teachers, who were betting they could profit if the rescue worked. At its peak at the end of 2008, the Fed had about $1.5 trillion in outstanding credit on its books. The central bank, in essence, pumped liquidity, the lifeblood of credit markets, into the circulatory system of an economy that was experiencing a potentially fatal heart attack. "I think our actions prevented an even more disastrous outcome," said Donald L. Kohn, who was the Fed's vice chairman during the crisis. Without the Fed's help, he said, "liquidity would have dried up even more than it did, asset prices would have fallen even more than they did, and economic activity and employment would have fallen further and faster then they did." But Senator Bernard Sanders, independent of Vermont, who wrote a provision in the law requiring the disclosures by Dec. 1, reached a different conclusion. "After years of stonewalling by the Fed, the American people are finally learning the incredible and jaw-dropping details of the Fed's multitrillion-dollar bailout of Wall Street and corporate America," he said. "Perhaps most surprising is the huge sum that went to bail out foreign private banks and corporations." Mr. Sanders said the Fed should have forced banks to restrict executive pay and reduce the financial burdens on mortgage borrowers as a condition of its aid. The Fed, already reeling from attacks from both the right and the left over its latest effort to spur the economy, a plan to buy $600 billion in Treasury securities, braced itself for another moment in the spotlight. In a statement accompanying the disclosure, the Fed said it had fully protected taxpayers. "The Federal Reserve followed sound risk-management practices in administering all of these programs, incurred no credit losses on programs that have been wound down, and expects to incur no credit losses on the few remaining programs," it said. The 21,000 transactions span the period from December 2007 to last July. Even as investors began poring over the disclosures, details emerged from the trove of new data. From December 2007 to October 2008, the Fed opened swap lines with foreign central banks, allowing them to temporarily trade their currencies for dollars to relieve pressures in their financial markets. The European Central Bank drew the most heavily on these currency arrangements, the records show, but nine other central banks also made use of them: Australia, Denmark, England, Japan, Mexico, Norway, South Korea, Sweden and Switzerland. At home, from March 2008 to May 2009, the Fed extended a cumulative total of nearly $9 trillion in short-term loans to 18 financial institutions under a credit program. Previously, the Fed had only revealed that four financial firms had tapped the special lending program, and did not reveal their identities or the loan amounts. The data appeared to confirm that Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley were under severe strain after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. All three tapped the program on more than 100 occasions. The American subsidiaries of several foreign banks also benefited substantially from the program. Those institutions included UBS of Switzerland; Mizuho Securities of Japan; and BNP Paribas of France. Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/02/business/economy/02fed.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

Oct. 3, 2008. Rep. Brad Sherman: Washington, D.C. - Today, Congress approved the $700 billion Wall Street Bailout Bill. Under the Bill, hundreds of billions of dollars will be used to buy toxic assets currently in safes in London, Shanghai, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Bailed out Wall Street firms will use their bail out money to pay million dollars a month salaries, and to even increase them to two million dollars a month. (For details, see paper at BradSherman.house.gov.) Our economy will not do well in the months to come, and dropping $700 billion on Wall Street is not going to make things much better. But now Wall Street will use the same fear mongering tactics which were used to pass the Bill, in order to justify the bill. In order to pass the Bill, Wall Street declared that unless they received $700 billion in unmarked bills, the Dow would drop by 4,000 points and blood would flow in the streets. The passage of the Bill will have little positive economic effect, and the fall and winter will be bad times for our economy. But in the coming weeks, Wall Street will justify the Bill by saying that we averted those very same calamities they had predicted during their successful effort to create panic, and pass the Bill. The worst abuses of the Bill can be minimized if Congress, and especially the press, begins an unprecedented level of ferocious oversight: We have to make sure that Paulson spends the money and the orderly rate of less than $50 billion month (as he has promised), not at a frantic pace that spends it all by January 20th, 2009. We have to make sure that Paulson treats all financial entities fairly, whether they be firms he likes, or firms he doesnt like. (It will take incredible investigative journalism to see whether the executives of any bailed-out firms are making secret contributions to Section 527 organizations, which are responsible for a big chunk of todays political advertising). When a firm receives a billion dollars in bail-out cash, we must report on which of its executives are receiving that cash in the form of salaries in excess of $1 million a year. (The bill allows unlimited salaries to be paid by bailed-out firms, and does not contain a provision preventing the bail-out cash from being used to pay those salaries.) Each time a U.S.-headquartered entity sells billions of toxic assets to the Treasury, we must ask whether that U.S. entity is just acting as an intermediary. We must ask whether those toxic assets were in foreign safes on September 20th, 2008. We must be aware of the China two-step (described in a paper at BradSherman.house.gov), in which a foreign investor who made bad business decisions can sell toxic assets to a U.S. entity on Monday, and Paulson can buy those toxic assets with taxpayer dollars on Tuesday. No one will ever be able to prove that the Bailout Bill helped or hurt our economy during the coming fall and winter. Only two things are certain: the bill will provide hundreds of billions of dollars to investors who made bad decisions and Wall Street executives; and our children and grandchildren will now face a national debt that is hundreds of billions of dollars higher.
