Bernanke wanted Wall Street’s worst in jail

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Bernanke advocated for Wall Street’s bailout in 2008 during the financial crisis when he led the Federal Reserve.He still thinks the bailout was the right call, but looking back he wishes more corrupt Wall Street bankers who helped bring on the crisis went to jail.“You can’t put a financial firm in jail,” Bernanke told USA Today in an interview Sunday. “Everything that went wrong or was illegal was done by some individual, not by an abstract firm…there should have been more accountability at the individual level.”Bernanke left the Fed more than a year ago and his memoir, The Courage to Act, comes out this week. It is supposed to detail life inside the Fed during the worst crisis since the Great Depression.Bernanke and the Fed drew lots of criticism from the media and general public for bailing out Wall Street at a time of great income inequality, rising unemployment and a collapsed housing market.On Sunday, Bernanke defended his bail out decision. He also said he wished Lehman Brothers, which collapsed into bankruptcy and was portrayed as a poster child of Wall Street corruption, could have been saved. continue reading »last_img read more

Bacta keeps its copper coins

first_img StumbleUpon Share Submit Arcades denounce DCMS reclassification postponing June reopening   June 12, 2020 Bacta trials new measures on ‘category D’ fruit machines July 12, 2019 Related Articles Share Safer Gambling Week 2020 to focus on customer intervention June 2, 2020 The British Amusement Catering Trade Association (Bacta) has welcomed the decision by the UK Treasury not to remove any coins or notes from circulation.Last March, UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond called for the reassessment of UK Currency’s ‘lowest denominations’, focusing on whether 1p and 2p coins had become ‘obsolete’.Acting on behalf of British amusement interests, Bacta governance contributed to the treasury assessment, supporting the circulation of copper coins as an integral part of its business.Updating stakeholders, Bacta’s CEO John White stated: “Coastal arcades across the country can now breathe a collective sigh of relief. The removal of our smallest denominations would have a devastating impact on seaside arcades that stimulate local economies and tourism. Bacta has been instrumental in the public call for Treasury to rethink the removal of our coppers from circulation.“2p pushers are a British pastime that many remember fondly from childhood, they can be found across hundreds of arcades across the coast. Removing the 2p coins would have led to the extinction of the arcades that house these machines and the resorts who depend on them. We’re pleased that government has opted not to scrap our lowest denominations.“Arcades are the economic engine rooms for often poor coastal communities, the removal of 2ps would have placed increased pressure on an industry already facing tough conditions, particularly in areas of the country where the support and investment is most needed. We welcome any decision that supports businesses and local tourism in seaside towns.”last_img read more
