Bank Bailout News Video: From The World Economic Forum at Davos, Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz Discusses 'Bank Management Stupidity'

This is a 7 minute clip from the recent World Economic Forum at Davos.  Nobel Economics Laureate and former chief economist at the World Bank, Joseph Stiglitz tells the truth about the government bailouts.  He touches on everything from AIG, to CDS, leverage on wall street, the bad bank proposal and our burgeoning national debt.  It's great watching, not wonkish, and very easy to follow. 

Higlights: bad bank is cash for trash, aig is a never-ending black hole, and stupid bankers and their leverage made this crisis much worse. 

These are all points we have been making here on a daily basis, and it's helpful for our sanity to learn that Stiglitz is of the same mind.  Attention Obama: get Stiglitz on your team quickly, your opportunity to fix the banks fades daily as more taxpayers discover that your plan is nothing but Bush Paulson 2.0.

New CNBC Video Dr. Doom & The Black Swan: Complete Interview of Nouriel Roubini and Nassim Taleb

Some of you saw this live on Monday.  I am posting for those who missed it.  The clip runs just short of 10 minutes.  It's outstanding.  I love that Taleb wants the failed bank CEOs fired.  I prefer listening to Taleb over Roubini any day. Excellent stuff.  For the newcomers, these are the 2 gentleman who have been given the most credit for understanding and predicting our current crisis.  Whether it is deserved is another question, but these are the annointed two.

Bailout CNBC Video: New Jim Rogers Interview on Squawk Box Europe Feb.9th

Updated on Feb 13, 2009 at 6:05 AM by Registered CommenterDailyBail

This clip runs approximately 6 minutes.  Rogers was a half-hour guest on Squawk Box Europe and this is the best chunk.  He's slightly more thoughtful here than in some interviews, he doesn't have visible contempt for this team of anchors. Thousands have used 'I don't suffer fools gladly' as canned response in job inteviews when asked to name a personal fault.  When jim rogers says it, it's true.  This guy does not hide his frustration when he is displeased.  Part of his charm for viewers.

As usual, CNBC does not allow video embedding.  So just click the photo above and you'll go directly to the cnbc clip.  In case you missed it, here's gentle Jim bringing the asian pain upon Geithner on Bloomberg yesterday.  It's a phenomenal clip.  Below are all the links for the last few days.

New Hilarious Bailout Comedy Video: Clusterf#@k to the Poorhouse The Daily Show with Jon Stewart from Feb.11

 

Last night Jon focused on Geithner's new bank bailout plan.  Watch the whole clip it gets better after the 1st minute.  At the 3 minute mark, Jon mistakenly breaks a wine bottle all over the desk and from there it's gold the rest of the way. Watch for the 'guy para-sailing in a hurricane' clip in the last 10 seconds.  It's pretty crazy.

"Let me briefly explain the 'rescuer-rescuee' relationship.  I would suggest that you don't complain about whether or not you get a window seat on the rescue boat, cuz by the way, wtf? are you doing in the water anyway."

Beautiful.

Bailout Video Dr. Doom: Complete Bloomberg Interview With Nouriel Roubini

This is the complete 13 minute interview of Dr. Nouriel Roubini with Kathleen Hayes from Monday Feb. 9th of this week. It's typical Roubini except he's smiling more.  Maybe he has a thing for Kathleen which would be a rather sharp diversion from the mean.  Dr. Doom is envied by academic peers more for his groupies than his graphs. Young people, forget Wall Street and get a PHD in economics. Then forecast global collapse every year of your career.  Buy an apartment in Tribeca, and wait. When the roulette wheel comes up 44 black, pop the cristal and loosen your tie. Cuz, you just became a guru.

Inside I have a 2nd video of Roubini at Davos being interviewed by Becky Quick of CNBC. It's much shorter at just over 2 minutes.

Bank Bailout Congressional Video Part 3: Failed Bank CEOs Discuss Compensation. Pandit Thinks He's Special

Note to Vikram Pandit: taxpayers appreciate that you've reduced your compensation for this year, but drawing attention to the matter invites scrutiny. Thanks for the invitation.

You made almost $200 million in 2006 selling Old Lane Partners to Citi. That was a crap sammich. Citi paid $800 million for Old Lane which it closed down completely 18 months later.  The entire $800 million was taken as a loss. Taxpayers then bailed out Citi. Transitively, you owe us some cash, Vikram, about $165 million.  Next time, think before you raise your hand to impress teacher.

Bank Bailout Congressional Video Part 2: House Rep. Mike Capuano Wants Criminal Indictments of Failed Bank CEOs. Comes With South Bostie Kick to the Nutz

This clip might be better than the Sherman video below.

"I can't believe no one's prosecuted you yet? Give the Obama Administration some time." 

"Basically you come to us today on your bicycles, after buying Girl Scout cookies and helping out Mother Theresa."

"I don't have one single penny in any of your banks."

"C'mon, all of a sudden money's not fungible in your entity. It's fungible (pooled) everywhere else, but not in your entitities."

That's the opening salvo from Sherman. He's just getting started. Make sure to watch the whole thing.

Bailout News Video: Gentle Jim Rogers Brings The Asian Pain in Bloomberg Public Beatdown of Treasury Knob Geithner. Rogers Goes Old-School with Texas Pile Driver.

"Mr. Geithner's been bombing for 15 years. Mr. Geithner casused this problem. You know Mr. Geithner has been head of the New York Fed for several years. That was the office that was supposed to be supervising Wall Street and the banking system.  He caused the problem, and then all last year he came up with TARP.  He came up with all these absurd bailouts. Listen Mr. Geithner has never known what he's doing.  He doesn't know what he's doing now and pretty soon everybody's gonna find out, including mr. Obama."

Ouch, Jim. And that's just in the first 60 seconds. This video is gold. More on the inside including an expanded transcript courtesy of the Messy Greenspan blog.  

Jim Rogers is f'ing hilarious. I've watched him for 15 years and remember his CNBC chronicled investing globe-trot with the puffed-up, bright lemon Mercedes thing.  He settled in Hong Kong or Singapore with his young wife and generally delivers the pain via satelite on Bloomberg or occasionally CNBC. I hope he stays around for 30 more years wreaking havoc every step of the way.  Gentle Jim, en fuego.
