WITH TRILLIONS ON THE TABLE NOBODY PLAYS FAIR, AND EVERYONE PLAYS FOR KEEPS.

The NEW ROBBER BARONS continues financial expert Janet Tavakoli’s on-going chronicle of the global financial crisis captured in her articles from the September 2008 meltdown through February 2012. Picking up where her previous book, DEAR MR. BUFFETT, ended, she exposes the criminogenic environment that enabled international oligarchs to solidify power.

In January 2009, Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, told Tom Brokaw: “the idea that people that move money around are some favored class…strikes me as getting pretty far away from where we should be.” Two years later he publicly excused apparent insider trading by one of his successor candidates, David Sokol.

Berkshire Hathaway officer Charlie Munger admonished law students that Americans shouldn’t be "bitching about a little bailout."

Shortly before Congress confronted him with Goldman Sachs’s profiteering during the financial crisis, Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein quipped he was doing “God’s work.”

CEO Jamie Dimon told shareholders that he didn’t think JPMorgan made a mistake when it came to potential foreclosure fraud: “maybe we’ll have to pay penalties eventually to some of the attorneys general but we really think we should just continue.” Meanwhile the bank scoured 115,000 mortgage affidavits and reserved $1.3 billion for legal costs.

After MF Global’s October 31, 2011, bankruptcy a U.S. Congressman told former CEO Jon Corzine: "You've got thousands of hard working people around this country that feel cheated."

Tavakoli serves up example after stunning international example of no-strings-attached socialization of losses and privatization of gains. In the words of Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur: "I believe most of us would call that theft."

COMMENT FROM JANET TAVAKOLI

This is a compilation of articles from September 2008 to the present. The e-book includes the original reference links including links to some of my original public (non-client) analysis. This is unedited so that readers can see my original thought process and ultimate vindication when the truth was eventually revealed by Congressional investigations.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Compendium Worth Having -- And Reading 20 de febrero de 2012
Por K. Denninger - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
Janet is one of the few ACTUAL subject matter experts in the field of structured finance -- you know, mortgage-backed securities, complex slice-and-dice things like CDOs and credit default instruments -- that has been sounding the siren on the fraud in our financial system since the collapse began.

She's right, incidentally. The mathematics of this is really simple, if you think about it. Nobody will buy used dog food if you tell them honestly what you're selling. So in order to manage to blow a credit bubble, someone -- or lots of someones -- have to lie.

That's at the root of what happened in the 2007-2009 meltdown, and we've fixed none of it. Instead we have tried to paper it over.

What you'll find in this work is a compendium of Janet's writings, many published on Huffington Post (either excerpted or fully) and most, if not all, available on her web page.

So what makes it worth having in this format? Simple -- it's an inexpensive way for you to have them all categorized in a form and fashion that you can look at and understand based on the subject matter. Like all contemporary writers who put forward what amounts to OpEds or pieces that qualify as "reporting" there's a severe problem for the reader who wants to go back and cross-reference or look things up later -- how do you find what you're looking for?

Many people have the same issue with my work at The Market Ticker; there are over 5,000 articles there, and while I have excellent search technology implemented, even I, having written a piece, sometimes take a few minutes to find what I want to reference a year or two later.

Now you have the most important parts of what Janet has expounded on in one place.

You can choose to listen to the politicians who have every reason to, and have, protected the perpetrators of these frauds upon the public or you can choose to listen to actual subject matter experts like Janet Tavakoli. The difference is simply whether you wish to be informed or further deceived.

With this as a backdrop, however, and as a prequel to her upcoming work "The Money Book", this compendium ought to put the lie, once and for all, to the commonly-repeated mantra "Nobody committed any crimes" spewed repeatedly by politicians of all stripes

Highly recommended.

I have been following the Titans of the Financial Bloggers such as K. Denninger, Peter Schiff and Janet Tavakoli since the crash of 2008. Janet is right on target. Time to start the prosecuting for the crooks on Wall Street. Janet has summarized her research since the start of the crisis. Well worth the read.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas How Janet Tavakoli WasWay Ahead of The Curve 26 de abril de 2012
Por NYC Reader1 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
Janet Tavakoli was pointing out the problems with credit default swaps (i.e. the opportunities for a handful of insiders to make big money on naked shorts) early on. The protagonist in The Big Short, Dr. Michael Burry, used Tavakoli's earlier book to figure out how he could make big money shorting triple-B subprime mortgage bonds. Unfortunately, others chose to ignore what she had to say.

This excellent book details how those who are beholden to Wall Street continue to push back against her message.
I don't agree with everything she writes, but 95% of it is spot on.

Por Stephens Ruggiero - Publicado en Amazon.com

Well presented, plenty of eye opening insights. It can also be maddening and down right depressing considering the crimes that go unprosicuted. And they are crimes commited by criminals illustrating the upside down world of "morality" we live in.
