Financial Reform: Is the Volcker Plan Missing the Target ?

Financial Reform: Is the Volcker Plan Missing the Target ?

Former Federal Reserve (Fed) Chief Paul Volcker’s so called Financial Reform Plan, released after President Obama’s speech decrying ‘fat cats’ on Wall Street, could be one of the most important prescriptions for the post-financial crisis. Its in/correctness and/or in/efficiency may well be critical for reform of the entire global financial system. Unfortunately, the plan of the former Fed head seems to be either lacking key elements, or is insufficient as currently constituted. We interview two of today’s most important economics bloggers, University of Oregon Economics Professor Mark Thoma, editor of Economist’s View, and Dr. David Caploe, Chief Political Economist of the Singapore-based EconomyWatch.com, who holds a Ph.D. in International Political Economy from Princeton.

This financial crisis was different (from the past financial panics of the 20th Century)

Nos dez anos do crash do Nasdaq: A história surpreendente de duas bolhas

Com a aproximação do aniversário do crash do Nasdaq a 11 de Março de 2000 exige-se uma reflexão sobre o comportamento da “exuberância irracional” nos mercados financeiros nesta última década. Como foi possível que, em menos de uma geração, se vivessem entusiasticamente duas bolhas (sempre com a ideia de que “desta vez é diferente”) e se sofressem dois crashs (sempre nos apanhando de surpresa)? Corresponderá esta dupla-bolha e duplo-crash a um padrão histórico que inclusive terá mais prendas na sua longa cauda? Eis a questão bilionária que fica por responder. A investigadora Carlota Perez, de Cambridge, no Reino Unido, ajuda-nos a compreender o que se passou.
