9/23/2008  Bad News For The Bailout
A deal likely won't happen this week, and if Paulson wants one at all, he better improve his case to Congress. - In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy. "It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."

9/23/2008  Bailout plan under fire
Paulson, Bernanke urge immediate action on $700B plan - cite fear of meltdown. But senators from both sides voice more questions than support. - Sen. Sherrod Brown, a liberal Democrat from Ohio, said calls from his constituents about the plan have been universally negative. He told the story of one constituent who drove to Washington. "He quite rightly asked why we were rushing to bailout companies whose leaders got rich gambling with other people's money," Brown said. Brown asked if Wall Street owed the rest of America an apology. Paulson, who served as CEO of Wall Street firm Goldman Sachs for seven years before becoming Treasury Secretary in 2006, pointed at both Wall Street and others for the nation's current crisis. "There is a lot of blame to go around," Paulson said. "A lot of blame [belongs] with big financial institutions that engaged in this irresponsible lending." But Paulson also said some blame rests with regulators, rating agencies and others - "people who made loans they shouldn't have made, people who took out loans they shouldn't have taken out."

9/19/2008  Wall Street: The dark theory
`Pollyanna Creep' theorists blame Washington's economic statistics - According to Williams, all the big measures have had their methodologies revised repeatedly over decades to paint the U.S. economy in the best possible light - and this has gone on regardless of which party controlled the White House. Modifications were always spelled out at the time - with rationales for doing so. Thus it's not as though this has gone on in the dark of night.

8/9/2008  Corporate Canada declines: Some call it treasonous but however you regard the hollowing out of Canada's corporate sector be assured it continues. To takeover numbers worth some $835 billion and swelling since 1985 to around 11,000 Canadian corporations, we may soon add the venerable Alberta-based TransAlta Utilities.
Some call it treasonous but however you regard the hollowing out of Canada's corporate sector be assured it continues. To takeover numbers worth some $835 billion and swelling since 1985 to around 11,000 Canadian corporations, we may soon add the venerable Alberta-based TransAlta Utilities. What's remarkable is how LS Power Equity Partners (LS Power) and Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) didn't consider a takeover sooner. As a major generator of coal, gas and wind energy whose forerunner Calgary Power Company was founded by W. Max Aitken in 1903, TransAlta Utilities has 50 such assets located around the world with the majority located in Alberta where it also supplies most of the province's power. In addition, LS Power already has nine per cent of TransAlta's common stock and owns power generation assets all over the U.S. Adding to the mix, GIP specializes in infrastructure investments worldwide while its owners -- Credit Suisse and the world's sixth-largest company, General Electric -- are providing the financing, though for all their riches, they don't explain why the $7.8 billion they are offering is only a fraction of what it would cost to build such assets from scratch.

3/21/2008  Democrats are darlings of Wall St: Some fear donations will soften attitudes on financial regulation
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, who are running for president as economic populists, are benefiting handsomely from Wall Street donations, easily surpassing Republican John McCain in campaign contributions from the troubled financial services sector. It is part of a broader fundraising shift toward Democrats, compared to past campaigns when Republicans were the favorites of Wall Street. Some Democrats worry that the influx of money will make their candidates less willing to call for increased regulation of financial markets, which have been in turmoil after a wave of foreclosures on sub-prime mortgages. These concerned Democrats argue that their candidates, and presumptive Republican nominee McCain, should be willing to push for financial institutions to accept more government regulation -- in exchange for likely future bailouts, such as the recent deal the Federal Reserve orchestrated for JPMorgan Chase & Co. to take over Bear Stearns Cos.

8/16/2007  Market woes, unsafe toys to feature in NAFTA talks: The leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico will discuss topics as diverse as the current turmoil on financial markets and the safety of Chinese-made toys when they meet near Ottawa next week.
The credit crunch, which has depressed markets globally, has nosed its way on to the agenda of a regular summit of the partners in the North American Free Trade Agreement: U.S. President George W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon. "I'm quite confident that they will be having a wide-ranging discussion on the economy," Harper spokeswoman Sandra Buckler said on Thursday when asked if they would discuss market disruptions. The Aug 20-21 meeting in Montebello, Quebec, is formally to develop further the "Security and Prosperity Partnership" (SPP) of NAFTA countries -- which has become a red flag for activists on the left and the right who are convinced it means a European Union-style loss of sovereignty.
