What Really Caused the Crisis and What to Do About It - YouTube
"There are not perfect markets, and there is no perfect planner. [...] we will never arrive at perfect solutions. [...] market will never allocate perfectly ... [...] market will always tend to lend to property and land, and less into productive means (businesses = risk of 100 loss, land or property ... you have a loss when you sell it. << China, UK ) [...] not all credit is good credit. [...] need for macroprudential policy to dampen bubbles bc rate hikes could dampen normal non-speculative area of economy. ie loan to value limits [...] interest rate setting is blunt hammer that people though is the magic wand along the line of self-regulation, free market, neoliberalism and trickle-down [...] GFC can be traced back to the 60-70's - macroecon + micro with absurd assumptions (ie rational expectations, equilibriums, no bubbles) & math & pure theoretical base (no empirical analysis ie of what banks really do ie greed) = makes job of economist as policy advisor real easy.

Inequality and the Challenge of Employment - New Economic Thinking - YouTube
intrinsic motivation, fairness, social animal - social comparison (is encoded into the brain) - status anxiety // self-interest mostly wins over ethics/moral values? // trust between principle & agent // org structure and inventive - ie bonus variable attracts more selfish people and risk takers // justice and fairness is critically important - not only in orgs but also democracies //&! Natural rate theory (equilibrium) - service sector jobs (unskilled manual labour jobs) w minimum wage and not higher. and flexible wages with no minimum wage (USA) create working poor/inequality. institutional change - economists are not just analysts they also affect policy makers (think tanks). // austerity hurts equality/social mobility = economic long-run damage to potential (thus output gap and productivity loss) - lack of supply of able workforce to create added value products & services. trickle-down not helping. //&! tax code unfair, lower capital gains tax than on earned (labour) income

Deutsche-Bank-Chef Fitschen fordert Ende der Niedrigzinsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Es ist in der Tat sehr wichtig, den richtigen Weg zur Umkehr zu finden, um nicht sofort den nächsten Kollaps zu provozieren." Der Grat sei sehr schmal. "Alle aber sind sich einig: Die Zinsen können dauerhaft nicht so bleiben, weil sonst die nächsten Verwerfungen die Folge sind", sagte Fitschen.

Ökonomen-Konferenz Hongkong: Warum wir immer mehr wollen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Je größer unser Wohlstand, so das Fazit, umso größer der Anteil unserer Ausgaben, mit denen wir lediglich anderen Menschen nacheifern. [...] Werber wissen intuitiv: Das Versprechen von Status ist eines der wichtigsten Verkaufsargumente überhaupt. [...] Nachahmungstheorie des Kulturwissenschaftlers René Girard: Für ihn zählt der Drang von Menschen, andere in ihrem Verhalten zu imitieren, zu den Grundlagen der Zivilisation. [...] Wie Finanzmärkte neigen auch Konsumgütermärkte zu Spekulationsblasen >> Angewandt auf die Wirtschaftswissenschaften führt Girards Theorie zu beunruhigenden Erkenntnissen: Märkte für Konsumgüter tendieren nicht automatisch zu einem Gleichgewicht von Angebot und Nachfrage, wie gemeinhin angenommen, sondern zu einem immerwährenden Ungleichgewicht. "Ohne Knappheit gäbe es keine Nachfrage." ( ) - Plays well into anthropology, evolution. Google "chimpanzee imitation"

Shorting The Market On These March Days Will Be Hazardous To Your Health | Zero Hedge
send the S&P higher by 5-15 point in minutes on, well, absolutely no news, except for the usual deluge of between $1 and $5 billion in additional purchasing handed over by Chairman Ben to the banks because, you see, they need the money. And sooner or later it will trickle down on everyone else.

Euro-Krise: Warum die Rettung der spanischen Banken gescheitert ist - SPIEGEL ONLINE
The crisis around Europe show, that market is, can become, a herd phenomenon. Where one problem or effect is increased by financial media concentration and analysis - and the market is piling in.

Example, Spain's 10yr is around 7%. But Belgium has very similar problems and even higher Debt/GDP as Spain, but Belgium's rates increases are negligible if one just listened to the media. And forgets about the facts.

The same is about Moody's warning about Core Risks, and potential downgrades. Media and Market and Major in-house analysis (from banks, hedge fonds and investment banks) are yet shy about adding the numbers of potential risks and liabilities as well as already existing liabilities through existing bailout agreements. Well ... till it isn't any more according to the majority of market participants. And then for Germany, yields will rise and will see a potential over reaction first.

The Crowd has certain psychological characteristics. Period. Proven above.

In placing stock bets, listen to the shorts: study | Reuters
The average stock investor could be forgiven for being overwhelmed by opinions, but one study says if there's one group to listen to, it's the short-sellers.

"Essentially, the short sellers are doing a tremendous job of using information with predictive value, and they really look like value investors."
Some investors agreed with the results, as the increased risk taken by short sellers with their own capital makes them more active in rooting out potential problems in a company.
