Kanzlerin Merkel und die Auto-Lobby: Gift fürs Klima - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Erhebt die Bundesregierung das nächste Mal selbst berechtigte Beschwerden über politische Missstände in Euro-Wackelländern, werden sich die Politiker dort an solche Dankeschön-Zuwendungen genau erinnern. Die Franzosen könnten beim Freihandelsabkommen mit den USA ihre heimische Filmindustrie noch unverfrorener vor Hollywood schützen. Die Italiener oder Griechen könnten sich zu strenge Anti-Korruptions-Vorgaben bei möglichen neuen Hilfspaketen verbeten. Und wer soll unter diesen Umständen den Briten vorhalten, dass sie ihre Finanzindustrie - wichtige Wahlkampfspender von Camerons Konservativen - vor neuer Regulierung aus Brüssel schützen wollen? Damit vergiftet Merkels Auto-Lobbying in jeder Hinsicht das Klima in Europa - und Deutschlands Glaubwürdigkeit droht unter die Räder zu geraten.

Griechenland-Krise: Jetzt hilft nur noch die Pleite - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Griechenland hat seine Geldgeber erneut enttäuscht. Die Regierung will mehr Zeit zum Sparen - und braucht noch mehr Hilfsmilliarden. Nichts davon können die EU-Partner dem Land gewähren, ohne ihre eigene Glaubwürdigkeit zu verlieren. Die Rettungspolitik ist gescheitert. Zeit für einen Neuanfang.

- Credibility erodes further among European Politicians and Policy makers.

Scandal At The IMF: Senior Economist Resigns, Says "Ashamed To Have Had Any Association With Fund At All" | ZeroHedge
the following scathing letter which tears down every myth about the IMF: from its impartiality, to the selection process of its head, to its effectiveness. The letter also contains the following gem: "After twenty years of service, I am ashamed to have had any association with the Fund at all." Pretty much says it all. This is a scandal in the making, and one which may shake to the core the credibility of the IMF in the context of international organization.


IS the IMF a institution to ensure the status quo?

Simon Johnson: The Federal Reserve and the Libor Scandal -
Bernanke on banking scandals: “I think the real issue is too big to fail,” correct, but the market cannot fix this
This New York Fed memo stands out as a model of clear thinking about the deep governance problems that allowed Libor to become rigged.
At the same time, the timing and content of the memo raises troubling questions regarding the Fed’s own involvement in the Libor scandal – both then and now.

According to the recent order against and settlement with Barclays by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Libor “market” had by 2005 become a hotbed of collusion and price-fixing

Fed is responsible 4 the “safety and soundness” of the financial system in the USA, THEY had to make a decision, either to let them fail (GFC) and thus the economy, the people and the world. LIBOR rigging scandal and TBTF is the aftermath et al

Anleihenkufe: Euro-Retter riskieren Inflation - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Das nächste Tabu ist gebrochen. Die Europäische Zentralbank will jetzt auch italienische Staatsanleihen aufkaufen.  Mit dieser Politik nähert sie sich immer weiter ihrem amerikanischen Pendant, der Fed, an. Die Gefahr dabei: Die Inflation könnte steigen.

"Die Fed ist nicht mehr unabhängig", sagt Scheide. "Geldpolitik und Finanzpolitik sind in den USA vermischt worden. Das ist genau das, was Europa nicht will. Denn das würde das Vertrauen in die EZB untergraben."

 "Kauft die EZB Anleihen am Kapitalmarkt, so steigt die Basisgeldmenge"  "Sollte die Geldmenge letztlich in der Privatwirtschaft ankommen, würde sie sich, so lehrt die Erfahrung, früher oder später in steigenden Preisen entladen."
Noch ist dieser Effekt in Europa überschaubar. Zu gering war bisher das Volumen der Anleihenkäufe. Zudem hat die EZB stets versucht, das neu geschaffene Geld dem Markt an anderer Stelle wieder zu entziehen. Dieses "Neutralisieren" wird jedoch umso schwieriger, je größer die Beträge werden.
