Want To Talk To Vikram Pandit, CEO Of Citigroup? Here’s His Cell Number

Pandit got fired today, after making $261 million in 5 short years at Citi.  His phone number still works.  Just called and it went directly to voicemail.  I thanked him for his taxpayer ripoff on behalf of 15,000 daily readers of The Bail.


Brilliant write-up from Gawker.

Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit told a Fortune conference on Wednesday that he "would be happy to talk to" Occupy Wall Street protesters "any time they want."  That's so cool of him!  Here's his cell phone number.  He's waiting for your call.

Things you might want to ask Pandit: Can I borrow $3.4 billion at no interest if I put up a bunch of my worthless shit as collateral?  I promise to pay it back, because I'm just going to lend it out to a bunch of idiots at like 9% interest and book profits.  Or how about you just buy $27 billion of my worthless shit?  No deal?  How about you just guarantee to eat 90% of the losses on that worthless shit up to $300 billion?

You may be interested to know that, according to the Citizen Media Law Project, New York law permits the recording of phone calls as long as one of the parties consents to the recording. So if you feel like it, record your message to Pandit, or conversation if you get him on the line, and send it to us at The Daily Bail.  We'll post it for all to enjoy.

Oh, and if he doesn't pick up his cell, his office line is (212) 793-1201, and his email address is vikram.pandit@citi.com.  Tell him hello from The Daily Bail.

I called this asshole up and his voicemail is full.

Still, you should call up just to hear his voicemail greeting. It's so utterly pathetic.

Oh, thy wilted dick head of the purse.

Now I have a couple of questions.

1. What the hell is this?

Clearly, a speculative instinct is key to generating and sustaining these complex and risky transformations. Here, a new, rather out-of-the box hypothesis suggests that dopamine differentials can explain differences in risk-taking between societies. John Mauldin, the author of “Bulls-Eye Investing” in an email last month cited this work. The thesis: Dopamine, a pleasure-inducing brain chemical, is linked with curiosity, adventure, entrepreneurship, and helps drive results in uncertain environments. Populations generally have about 2% of their members with high enough dopamine levels with the curiosity to emigrate. Ergo, immigrant nations like the U.S. and Canada, and increasingly the UK, have high dopamine-intensity populations. If encouraged to keep the rewards of their high dopamine-induced risk-seeking entrepreneurialism, these countries will be more prone to wealth waves, unequally distributed. Presto, a plutonomy driven by dopamine!

How Citigroup stumbled in the Mexican housing market


The Santa Fe housing development, where power outages and flooding are the norm, is a casualty of Mexico's dysfunctional housing market. Work on the subdivision stalled before the sewer or the high school was finished. Water pipes and doors have been looted from homes.

The neighborhood has created heartache for its residents, but it is also disappointing for Citigroup Inc, which helped finance Desarrolladora Homex, the site's developer and once Mexico's second-largest homebuilder.

Last year, the U.S. bank posted weaker-than-expected third-quarter earnings after effectively writing down more than a quarter of the value of loans made to Homex and two other struggling Mexican homebuilders, Corporación GEO and Urbi Desarrollos Urbanos. And some banking analysts say they fear the loan losses could be a taste of further emerging market credit losses to come for Citigroup.

The $300 million in loans were made starting in 2009. Bank executives at Citigroup in New York turned down at least some of the business because it seemed too risky, two sources involved with the lending process said. The executives were reluctant to make real estate loans in emerging markets after losses from the U.S. housing bubble led to three government rescues for Citigroup in 2008 and 2009.
