    Have you ever heard of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation? What about Cede and Company? If those names are foreign to you, then you don’t really understand how the core of our financial system really works. A lot of people are blaming Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and the heads of other major trading platforms for the stock trading restrictions that we witnessed last week, but it was actually the DTCC that suddenly jacked up deposit requirements ten-fold. Robinhood and other trading platforms were put in a vise-like grip, and they had no choice but to act. Someone needs to...

    Financial and precious metals expert Egon von Greyerz (EvG) says the signs abound that we are nearing the end of this global fiat money experiment while central bankers are befuddled. EvG explains, “The central banks are panicking. They don’t know what to do anymore. They are just starting to print money and with the euro on a daily basis. . . . Europe is starting QE again with $20 billion a month, but that’s nothing compared to what is coming. . . . The panic that started with central banks in the summer in late July and August was, to...

    Keep your eyes on Deutsche Bank on Monday. The Banks has never fully recovered from the financial meltdown in 2008......they have been suffering huge losses in the investment banking division and have been accused multiple times for financial shenanigans.....several large hedge funds and other corporate clients have quietly been moving funds out of Deutsche Bank to other Banks, creating a slow but steady run on the bank... The question is, will Deutsche Bank elect to stretch out the pain over time or use an axe to cut off all the dead weight at one time... Potentially 15,000 to 20,000 US...

    Ending Action: Financial And Political Reckless mania of today’s socialistsIn the financial and commodity markets a frenzy of speculation runs until exhaustion. And frenzy is the right word as soaring prices become irresistible, whether the action is in stocks, bonds, or commodities. The crowd finds its own compulsions and the action is essentially the same no matter the object of desire. And it always runs until it collapses. Along with speculation in the financial markets, the compulsion by today’s socialists to politicize all, repeat all, decision-making has become a reckless mania. Both phenomena are impetuous enough to be considered as...

    Berlin fears a meltdown of the Turkish economy could spill over into Europe, cause further unrest in the Middle East and trigger a new wave of immigration toward the north. “We would do a lot to try to stabilize Turkey,” a senior German official said. “We don’t have much choice.” Other European governments have grown equally concerned. Hosting his Turkish counterpart in Paris on Monday, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said it was important to support Turkey’s efforts to repair its economy.

    Facebook has been asking banks in the United States for their customers’ financial data, including account balances and transactions, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal revealed that the social network has been asking major banks to “share detailed financial information about their customers, including card transactions and checking account balances, as part of an effort to offer new services to users.” The banks asked by Facebook included JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and U.S. Bancorp, while one “large U.S. bank pulled away from talks due to privacy concerns.” “Facebook has talked about a feature that would show its...

    Leaked documents obtained by LifeSiteNews connect the Pope himself to a new Vatican financial scandal and raise serious questions about his global reputation as the “pope for the poor.” LifeSiteNews has obtained internal documents of the U.S.-based Papal Foundation, a charity with a stellar history of assisting the world’s poor, showing that last summer the Pope personally requested, and obtained in part, a $25 million grant to a corruption-plagued, Church-owned dermatological hospital in Rome accused of money laundering. Records from the financial police indicate the hospital has liabilities over one billion USD – an amount larger than the national debt...

    Undersea cables carry 97% of financial, digital transactionsBritish defense officials have warned that Russia, in addition to possibly Iran and China, pose an existential threat to the Western way of life by developing capabilities to target undersea communications cables that carry 97 percent of all digital traffic and $10 trillion in daily financial transactions. Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, the chief of the defense staff, in speaking to the Royal United Services Institute defense think tank, said Britain and Nato needed to prioritise protecting the lines of communication. He said it would “immediately and potentially catastrophically” hit the economy...

    The White House released financial disclosures for many of its senior officials Friday — a group of some of the wealthiest people ever to join a presidential administration. The documents provide a snapshot of what the employees’ finances looked like when they joined government service in January, but they do not give a full account of how those people are disentangling from business assets that could pose possible conflicts of interest. President Donald Trump, a billionaire New York businessman, and Vice President Mike Pence, the former Indiana governor, are not legally required to file new financial disclosures until next year....
  • 17 Years Later, Microsoft Corp. Is Worth $500 Billion Again (Business is good, but different)

    Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is putting some pep back in its step these days. On Friday, Reuters pointed out that the software giant's market cap has risen above $500 billion for the first time since March 2000. I'm all for celebrating neat milestones, including this 17-year benchmark. And it's no secret that Microsoft really is doing a lot of things right these days. Large-cap stocks don't post market-crushing 55% returns in two years for no reason. That being said, I would like to argue that the Microsoft you see today is miles removed from the $500 billion beast you knew 17...

    Embattled Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes is a victim who has been "totally attacked," venture capitalist Tim Draper told CNBC on Tuesday. Holmes has been under fire since a series of reports by The Wall Street Journal suggested the blood-testing start-up's testing devices were flawed. "Elizabeth Holmes is a great example of maybe why the women are so frustrated. She is a woman entrepreneur who built a fabulous company, did great things for consumers and she got attacked," the founding partner of Draper Associates and Draper Fisher Jurvetson said in an interview with "Closing Bell." "This is a great entrepreneur who...

    the US Court of Appeals from the DC Circuit today found that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was “structurally unconstitutional.” The offending structure consists of an independent agency with a single, all-powerful executive director. The Court found that structure fell between two stools – an agency with a single head needs to be accountable to the President, while an independent agency needs to have internal checks and balances by having a multi-member commission format like the SEC and others... The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s lack of checks and balances violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. Its director is like a...
  • Public Country-By-Country Reporting / Corporate tax transparency

    With the rules on country-by-country reporting, the EU has created a framework where businesses in the extractive and logging industries have to publish their payments to governments relating to the exploitation of natural resources. This will assist populations of resource-rich countries to hold their governments accountable for these proceeds. In addition, a country-by-country reporting is also required from EU credit institutions (banks). This will ensure that trust in the financial sector is regained. On 12 April 2016, the Commission adopted a proposal for a Directive which imposes on EU and non-EU multinational groups the publication of a yearly report on...

    Blockchain technology is expected to change the way financial organizations conduct business with banks implementing distributed ledger technology (DLT) projects by 2017, according to the World Economic Forum. After 12 months of research which saw the WEF engage over 200 industry leaders and subject matter experts through interviews and multi-stakeholder workshops, the organization compiled a 130-page report on the impact distributed ledger technology (DLT), also known as blockchain, will have on the financial infrastructure’s future. WEF’s ‘The Future of Financial Infrastructure’ report found that ‘applications of DLT will differ by use case, each leveraging the technology in different ways for...

    The New York Times published a piece Wednesday detailing Bill and Hillary Clinton’s financial struggles in the 1980s — when the couple was making the equivalent of $144,000 today and had a nanny to care for their infant daughter. In a piece titled “When Her Family Needed Money, Hillary Clinton Faced Stark Choices,” Amy Chozick writes that after Bill Clinton lost the Arkansas governor’s race in 1980, money troubled Hillary. She “worried about saving for Chelsea’s college, caring for her aging parents, and even possibly supporting herself should the marriage or their political dreams dissolve.” [dcquiz] The couple “stretched their...
