A good article to follow up this one, AT LINK:
"As CMOs became more complicated, my job was to make everything seem simple—to, in effect, mask the complexity that would’ve made the bonds difficult to trade. We invented a language for mortgage-backed bonds. I called it BondTalk. Lehman was a runner-up in CMO underwriting. I was told to rewrite the entire system. Make it all push-button. Flexible and faster. Traders told us what they wanted, and we wrote the software code to make it possible. We were on the cutting edge. When I finished that project, I approached my former boss to ask if I could move to the trading desk, to where the big money was.


“Mike,” he told me when denying my request, “can you really look for people dumber than you and then take advantage of them? That’s what trading is all about.”

EURO NEGATIV

Für die Essener Arcandor AG und ihren neuen Vorstandsvorsitzenden Karl-Gerhard Eick steht im Juni die nächste Nagelprobe an: Dann gilt es, Kredite im Volumen von 650 Millionen Euro neu zu finanzieren. Zu diesem Termin sollte das hochverschuldete Unternehmen deshalb besser auf erste operative Fortschritte verweisen können, sonst könnte es bei der angespannten Lage, in der sich die Banken selbst befinden, eng werden.

In Frankfurter Finanzkreisen wie in anderen Unternehmen der Einzelhandelsbranche wird dieser Termin schon heute mit Spannung erwartet. Dabei steht auch die Frage im Raum, ob es die vollständige Arcandor-Tochtergesellschaft Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH schaffen wird, den Sommer ohne einen Insolvenzantrag zu überstehen. Denn der Konzern arbeitet mit einer äußerst dünnen Eigenkapitaldecke. Die Eigenkapitalquote beträgt etwas weniger als 9 Prozent. Im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr wurde ein Konzernverlust von 746 Millionen Euro ausgewiesen. Der freie Mittelzufluss (Cashflow) war mit 206 Millionen Euro negativ

PEUGEOT CRISE

The board of PSA, Europe's No. 2 automaker after Volkswagen, cited "the extraordinary difficulties currently faced by the automotive industry" as its reason for replacing Streiff with Philippe Varin, currently the boss of steelmaker Corus. But Streiff, 54, had alienated other top PSA managers and infuriated the French government by vowing to shrink the group's payroll-even after receiving a nearly $4 billion government bailout that was supposed to protect jobs.

Although rumors had circulated for weeks that Streiff's job was in danger, the announcement clearly caught him off guard. Through an outside spokesman, he issued a statement calling the board's decision "incomprehensible," adding, "The policies we defined and put in place over the past two years have left PSA well-armed against the current crisis." Investors didn't seem happy, either: PSA shares sank more than 9 percent on the news of Streiff's departure.

Credit Crisis


More on our friends at Healthcare Connections, currently doing a roaring trade flogging Tamiflu to people worried about swine flu – for a total consideration of around £60, compared to the £7.10 NHS prescription price. A reader gets in touch to say that the company's sales staff told him it could take several weeks to get the medication out to him once he parted with his cash. A little disappointing since Tamiflu is most effective when used during the first few days of infection.

Horlick feels the heat again

Another blow to Nicola Horlick, right, the City superwoman who looked a little less clever when it emerged that her fund management company, Bramdean, had taken a big hit from the Madoff affair. One of Bramdean's biggest shareholders, Elsina, controlled by the entrepreneur Vincent Tchenguiz, has now called an extraordinary general meeting of the company, in a bid to unseat its entire board.

Desperate times call for desperate measures

Do you think the posh grocer Whole Foods Market is struggling to get punters through the doors of its flagship outlet in Kensington High Street in London? Efforts to pull in a crowd seem to have been stepped up: the store is hosting a series of events, ranging from Cuban dancing shows to a lecture series on coping with allergies. There is even a "Free Salsa Class for Thirsty Thursday Customers". Given the price of some of its food, perhaps a seminar on how to do a full week's shop without giving your bank manager heart failure might be more appropriate.

Primark outfoxes the demonstrators

Primark hasn't got where it is today without some smart thinking. When executives discovered the opening of a new store in Tooting, south London, due today, was to be the target of a demonstration by War on Want, they acted quickly. An embarrassing scene was avoided by the simple trick of opening the store 24 hours early – the doors were thrown open yesterday morning.

Koninklijke familie bezoekt gewonden

- Koningin Beatrix, prinses Margriet, Pieter van Vollenhoven, prins Willem-Alexander en prinses Máxima hebben zaterdag gewonden van de aanslag afgelopen donderdag in Apeldoorn bezocht in diverse ziekenhuizen.
afbeelding vergroten Koningin Beatrix heeft zojuist een bezoek gebracht aan de Isala kliniek in Zwolle, waar een gewonde van de aanslag tijdens Koninginnedag verblijft.
Ze spraken ook met familieleden. Dat heeft de Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst laten weten.

De koningin ging op bezoek in de Isala Klinieken in Zwolle. Prinses Margriet en haar man Pieter van Vollenhoven bezochten het Rijnstate Ziekenhuis in Arnhem. Willem-Alexander en Máxima hebben slachtoffers opgezocht in klinieken in Tilburg, Utrecht en Amersfoort.

Bij de aanslag kwamen zeven mensen, inclusief dader Karst T. uit Huissen, om het leven. Acht mensen liggen nog in ziekenhuizen.

Volgens een woordvoerder van de RVD hebben de leden van de koninklijke familie zes gewonde mensen bezocht en gesproken. Twee andere slachtoffers waren niet aanspreekbaar. Koningin Beatrix sprak met twee slachtoffers en hun familie en met naasten van de twee slachtoffers, die de koninklijke familie niet kon bezoeken. Er is in de klinieken geen aparte bijeenkomst met artsen of verpleegkundigen geweest. Wel was de naaste familie van de slachtoffers speciaal uitgenodigd.

Prinses Margriet en haar man zijn zaterdagmorgen bij een gewonde in het Rijnstate Ziekenhuis geweest. De Prins van Oranje en prinses Máxima zijn zowel ’s morgens als ’s middags op pad geweest en spraken drie mensen. Koningin Beatrix legde haar bezoek in Zwolle in de middag af en is even na vier uur naar Den Haag teruggekeerd. De koninklijke familie wilde haar belangstelling voor de slachtoffers zoveel mogelijk privé houden, aldus de RVD.

So it's time to admit it: We're fools, protagonists in a kind of gruesome comedy about the marriage of greed and stupidity. And the worst part about it is that we're still in denial — we still think this is some kind of unfortunate accident, not something that was created by the group of psychopaths on Wall Street whom we allowed to gang-rape the American Dream
