Il prend la banque à son propre jeu

Fatigué de cet état de fait, un Russe a décidé de jouer un mauvais tour à l'un de ces organismes bancaires. Aura-t-il gain de cause ? L'avenir nous le dira. Récit de ses aventures. Dmitry Agarkov, un Russe de 42 ans excédé après avoir reçu une publicité pour une offre de crédit à la limite du vol pur et simple, s’est lancé le défi un peu fou de prendre cette banque – Tinkoff Credit Systems, pour ne pas la nommer – à son propre jeu. Notre homme a ainsi pu jouir de sa carte de crédit fort avantageuse pendant deux ans avant que la banque ne l’annule et décide de lui réclamer 1 363$ de charges, intérêts et autres frais de paiements en retard. Agarkov pousse désormais le vice en attaquant la banque et en réclamant 727 000$ pour non-respect des termes du contrat. Outrageous HSBC Settlement Proves the Drug War is a Joke.

Britain spending 11,000 pounds a day to keep WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange holed up

The final bill could be much more as the 41-year-old continues to defy extradition to Sweden where he is suspected of sexually assaulting two women. Scotland Yard confirmed it costs 11,000 pounds every day to ensure that the Australian does not flee his bolthole at the Ecuadorean Embassy, the Daily Mail reported. The police bill for staking out the embassy where Assange is holed up has already reached more than 1 million pounds. Officers have been watching the property in Knightsbridge, West London, since Assange breached his bail and claimed asylum in June. Ecuador granted political asylum to Assange in August after he took refuge in the country's embassy in London. U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time.

" Don't worry, Lois, neither is anyone else. And the less you can do math, the happier you'll be at the IRS where, let's face it, no two people ever come up with the same answer for any given tax return. This utterance bubbled out of Lois's mouth in the middle of a conference call concerning the stunning revelations that the IRS targeted conservative groups for punitive audits during the 2012 elections. Yep, when you're not a gung-ho supporter for the socialist agenda, IRS agents just happen to come knocking on your door.

The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

The Fed Audit

An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world," said Sanders.

The Network of Global Corporate Control

So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions.

This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.

An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy. The study's assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable. The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York's Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). A Tightly Knit Network of Companies Runs the World Economy, Says Network Analysis. A small, tightly woven network of companies, mostly banks, wields disproportionate control over the global economy, according to a new study. To the thousands of protesters swept up in the global Occupy movement, it may seem like a case of science confirming the obvious.

It's based on a few extrapolations and assumptions that are open to debate, but the overall findings shed some light on the intimate ways 21st century capitalism works — and how those functions can undermine the entire system. A trio of systems theorists at ETH Zurich examined the world's 43,060 transnational corporations and studied their share ownerships, searching for commonalities that tie the companies together. They worked with techniques used to study complex systems in nature to construct a model of which companies controlled which other companies, and through which networks.

Reagan Mythology is Leading US Off a Cliff. As things stand today, the US is hurtling toward a budget showdown in less than a month. Either President Obama will once again capitulate to extreme Republican budget-slashing demands, making Democrats seem as much of a threat to Medicare as Republicans, and virtually ensuring a GOP electoral sweep in 2012, or the US will default on its debt for the first time in its history, most likely plunging the world economy back into another five-continent recession, also costing Democrats the 2012 elections. These are the options left for a president and a political class completely divorced both from reality, and its own history of how one of the three greatest US presidents of all time steered the country from the brink of collapse eight decades ago.
