The Short and Simple Story of the Credit Crisis.
From Jonathan Jarvis
Crisis of Credit is a most excellent visualization to help explain how the hell we got into these tough economic times. (TETs)

Wall Street Declines on Swine Flu, Bank Concerns

Wall Street fell in early trading Tuesday on concerns that swine flu will dampen a global economic recovery and that some banks may need to raise more capital.

Not to worry, the Banksters have private corporate freshly sanitized jets to whisk them away to safe zones or the nearest Deep Underground Military Base when TSHTF (The Swine Hits The Fan, as it would be in this case) Unless, of course, you SQUASH them first before they can escape to their jet.

Oliver Stone to direct sequel to 'Wall Street'

Hollywood Reporter Story

Stone talking about it on Bill Maher:

Naomi Klein: 'The Wall Street Bailout Is the Greatest Heist in Monetary History'

Article By Joan Juliet Buck
Quote by Naomi Klein
In the ‘90s I wrote a lot about branding and how corporations were tapping into the deeply human need to be part of something bigger than just consumerism. “We’re not just selling sneakers.

We’re selling transcendence and a connection and community.” That trend actually made me feel hopeful that, actually, we don’t just want things, and all of this expensive market research was telling Microsoft and Starbucks and Nike that what we actually want is to be part of something larger.

Damn It Feels Good to be Banker

TARP ponzi scheme

A creative schemer tries a novel approach:
Grigg made phony claims that investors' money was being put into "TARP-guaranteed debt" with a 12.5% return.

"There is no such thing as TARP-guaranteed debt," a Treasury Department spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Grigg also had a life-coaching company:
The SEC sued Grigg in late January, claiming that his financial advisory and "life coaching" company, ProTrust Management Inc., defrauded at least 27 clients out of millions of dollars."

More from the LA Times Story.
And an article about the Guy who squashed him.

He faces up to 8 years in Jail.
