Bailout for Bailout Nation

posted 746 weeks ago on
Yesterday, Jesse Eisinger reported that McGraw Hill dropped Barry Ritholtz's book, Bailout Nation. Barry said that it?s due to his harsh treatment of the ratings agencies (Standard & Poor's is owned by McGraw Hill). McGraw Hill says that it?s dropping the book due to editorial conflicts. This strikes me as an exceedingly lame excuse. Jesse quotes Barry, ?All the conversations I had with them, they made apparent this was all about S&P's role as sister company.? Felix says that the relationship probably fizzled due to chemistry as well, and I think he?s right. McGraw Hill certainly didn?t want the book to be dropped. I think they underestimated dealing with a blogger like Barry who?s not going to let himself get pushed around. They pushed too hard and he walked. The bottom line i

From the Financial Times: The free market is dead. It was killed by the Bolshevik Revolution, fascist dirigisme, Keynesianism, the Great Depression, the second world war economic controls, the Labour party victory of 1945, Keynesianism again, the Arab oil embargo, Anthony Giddens?s ?third way? and the current financial crisis.

Adam Smith would be laughing too hard to say anything. Smith spotted the precise cause of our economic calamity not just before it happened but 232 years before ? probably a record for going short. ?A dwelling-house, as such, contributes nothing to the revenue of its

DISH Network Corp. (Public, NASDAQ:DISH) is yet another company on the long list of stocks that have fallen more than 100% in the last year. DISH, which traded as high as $36.11 in 2008, is currently trading at close to $14 a share. This is after hitting a 52 week low of $8.34, and shares seem to be on the rebound. The stock has mostly moved due to Goldman Sachs analyst Ingrid Chung pimping it out, contending that with the stock trading at 5.5x estimates 2009 EPS versus 14x for rival DirecTV (DTV), most of 2008?s bad news has been largely discounted. In 2008, the company suffered a satellite failure, the loss of its AT&T distribution deal, and unfavorable developments in its litigaiton with TiVo, among other things.  But now she sees potential catalysts ahead: read more

The Geithner Plan

posted 746 weeks ago on
The Washington Post: Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner this morning announced an aggressive and multi-faceted program that could commit $1.5 trillion or more in public and private funds to rescue banks and financial institutions and thaw frozen credit markets. The gravity of the financial crisis confronting the Obama administration was brought into stark focus as Geitner unveiled a financial stability plan that would more closely scrutinize the risks banks are facing and offer public and private capital to those that need it; create a fund, with a starting value of $500 billion, to buy up toxic real estate loans; and commit up to $1 trillion to reopen lending markets for consumer, student, small business, auto and commercial loans. Geithner said the administration was also working
