The Financial Stability Board lists the banks that should be of significant interest to those concerned with “Too Big To Fail” institutions.

The total assets of these banks to the home country is astounding. The banking powers are undermining the home country’s ability to function as a separate entity from the taxpayer. These counties are making decisions based upon the multinational bank power and not the sovereignty of the country.

How can any country have the ability to guarantee the best interests of it’s own citizens when the power rests with these over-leveraged banks?

Contagion risks arising from one failure amongst this group of 29 that can (and will) infect other banks within these nations. Many studies have shown “Too Big To Fail” exposures can significantly intensify problems for banking in general once contagion spreads to it. Even the banks that are financially sound can become problematic.

Anyone in for a bad game of Dominoes?

“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.”
New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
Woodrow Wilson,The New Freedom 1913″
(THE GROWING INVESTMENT BANKING PROBLEM CONCERNING HEDGE FUNDS AND PRIVATE EQUITY HAS CONTINUOUSLY BEEN GETTING WORSE BECAUSE OF NO GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS ON THE TOXIC DERIVATIVES AND HUGE LEVERAGE THAT WALL STREET ARE USING IN THEIR TRADES. THE BANKERS ARE CONSTANTLY KILING ANY REGULATIONS THE GOVERNMENTS ARE TRYING TO PROMOTE.

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog (my.barackobama.com) and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
