Mario Draghi in der Kritik: "Die Geldpolitik macht den Kapitalismus kaputt" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Danach kamen die Übertreibungen am US-Immobilienmarkt, im Süden der Eurozone und auf den Rohstoffmärkten. Wir haben es mit einer Kette wandernder Blasen zu tun, die von der Geldpolitik getrieben werden. Die neue Blase bildet sich nie dort, wo zuvor die alte geplatzt ist. Die Regierungen reagieren auf einen Crash mit schärferen Regeln, aber die Spekulation ist ihnen immer einen Schritt voraus.

The Assets Perspective: Reid Cramer: Books
'weather proofing for the future.' - The Assets Perspective presents a multi-dimensional exploration of the rise of asset building as a new social policy framework. By focusing on long-term economic health outcomes rather than short-term income or poverty, this book offers a valuable lens for thinking about social policy - pointing to opportunities for policy interventions designed to assist families in building their asset base. Topics covered include the evolution of public assistance programs, the racial wealth gap, impact of the Great Recession, the challenge of affordable homeownership, the history of financial services, and the potential of policy reform. With contributions from leading scholars, the book considers how the assets perspective has impacted the manner in which social policy is conceived, designed, and delivered.

UK banking shortfall mostly patched up | ForexLive
The FT is out with a sensational headline saying ‘PRA to expose £26bn bank funding gap’ but the details of the story show that the numbers don’t account for measures already taken this year or are scheduled over the next 18 months. The Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds and Barclays account for 90% of the shortfall but each has only about £1-2bn more to raise.

Angel-Turned-VC Mike Maples: Yes, Theres a Bubble
Today, at the DEMO Conference in Palm Springs, Co-founder and Partner of Floodgate Funds Mike Maples gave the audience his own personal view: “Is there a tech bubble? Rounded off to the nearest yes, yes”, he said. Echoing Schmidt’s sentiments, Maples said that the super-sized valuations of Facebook, Zynga, and Twitter have spawned a host of imitators and that, as a result, there is now a huge crowding effect (read: bubble). “It’s like a soccer game for 9-year-olds, where everyone crowds around the ball,” he said.

What the New York Fed Bought in A.I.G.’s Bailout - DealBook Blog -
In his statement releasing the document, Mr. Issa argued, “It’s not conjecture, it’s not speculation, it’s fact — the New York Fed gave a backdoor bailout to A.I.G.’s counterparties and then tried to cover it up.”

Is the Fed Creating New Bubbles? - BusinessWeek
As critics see it, the Fed helped inflate the tech and housing markets over the past decade and is setting up the global economy for another doozy with its near-zero short-term interest rates. Global investors can borrow dollars cheaply and invest the borrowed funds in assets ranging from Indonesian stocks to copper futures contracts, a strategy known as a carry trade. During Obama's recent Asian swing, China Banking Regulatory Commission Chairman Liu Mingkang warned that U.S. monetary policy is creating "new, real, and insurmountable risks to the recovery of the global economy, especially emerging-market economies." Bank of Japan Governor Masaaki Shirakawa and Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang issued similar warnings.

Central banks across the globe tighten credit again - Telegraph
Oil-rich Norway raised rates a quarter point to 1.5pc on Wednesday, the first European country to move since the crisis. Governor Svein Gjedrem said asset prices have "risen sharply and probably excessively". The Norges Bank is taking pre-emptive action to choke off a property bubble, though manufacturing remains sluggish. The era of "asset targeting" has begun.

"Given the amount of leverage in the economy, little changes in rates can have a disproportionate impact. The poor state of government finances, the high supply of bonds, and the fear of inflation could further exaggerate a bond market sell-off once tightening starts," he said.
