The Long Road Back Toward Ethical Banking Practices
We all know the story of the last 30 years in financial services: The ‘big bang’ deregulation initiated in the Thatcher/Reagan period (and carried on through to the 21st century) led to a much more permissive and international trading environment. The industry consolidated into large universal banks, and commoditized the services which these banks provided. Financial gain came to prevail and the interests of clients became relevant only to the extent that they further the financial performance of those who provide products for such clients. Regulators stopped regulating, in effect believing that efficient markets, guided by Adam Smith’s invisible hand, would automatically lead to good outcomes and so were ‘light handed’. Fiduciary duties were set aside in favor of poorly understood contracts. Securitization and the rapid growth of derivatives led to larger and larger risks being taken, with other people’s money. Limited liability meant that key players had very limited ‘skin in the game’. Sales and trading culture took over from relationships in the major institutions, which increasingly ceased to care about their reputations. Remuneration systems encouraged the creation of products with excessive ‘tail risk’. Increasing focus on shareholder value maximization has led to adverse outcomes, both for firms and for the economy as a whole. All of this culminated with the Great Recession of 2008. We’ve had a number of books that have been published in the aftermath of that crisis, suggesting a multiplicity of reforms to discourage bad banking practices. What makes the contribution of David Vines (professor of economics at Oxford University) unique is the attempt to re-establish some ethical norms in financial services. Amongst other things, Professor Vines advocates the banking equivalent of a Hippocratic Oath, along with what Adam Smith described as “other regarding behavior” beyond limited self-interest. In the interview, Vines notes that while economists know much about Smith’s “invisible hand” of the market place, driven by rational self-interested behavior, they are less familiar with his work, “The Theory of Moral Sentiments”, which expressed the view that human beings had “other-regarding” motivations, including altruism, and a desire for the approbation of others. In the discussion below, Vines makes the case that the trust-intensive nature of financial services makes it essential to cultivate such motivations, and provides proposals for how this might be done in his book. Why the emphasis on trust? Why not just introduce highly punitive and restrictive regulations? Well, for one, we’ve seen how bankers have managed to game their way around more restrictive forms of regulation (even as they have aggressively lobbied against their implementation). Moreover, Vines contends that robust ring-fencing between investment and commercial banking activities (via, say, a “Glass Steagall II” equivalent) is unlikely to work, because culture transcends boundaries. If those with a sales or trading focus, who do not care about the welfare of their customers or are in the same organizations as those who would normally develop good relationships and client care, then their attitudes will reduce the trustworthiness of others, especially if their potential remuneration is greater: in other words, the ethical equivalent of a Gresham’s Law, where bad behavior drives out ethical practices. Vines seeks to develop mechanisms which encourage trustworthiness, and the holding to account of those involved in an appropriate manner. Financial reforms at present lack sufficient focus on these requirements and in that regard his book is a unique contribution to the overall debate so as to help make finance consonant with broader public purpose.

William Black – Deutsche Bank Crime Weakens Global Financial System
Professor of Economics and Law, William Black, who was a top regulator in the S&L crisis, says, “Deutsche Bank is one of the potential sources of the next recession, and you can see lots of people warning that there are signs that a serious recession is pretty likely relatively soon. . . . The whole system weakens itself because it gets caught in this big lie that says we have to pretend that Deutsche Bank is a bank instead of a criminal enterprise.” In closing, Professor Black says, “I am going to give you the advice you get after the recession before the recession. Pay off your debt, all that you can. Do not keep borrowing except in certain circumstances like you are going to buy a home and it is prudent purchase. Buy a car when you can buy it with cash whenever possible . . . and always try to be a net saver.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Dr. William Black, Professor of Economics and Law at University of Missouri Kansas City. (Correction: Deutsche Bank has a market cap of $19.5 billion and not $1.5 billion as I mistakenly said at the beginning of the interview.

13. Banks
Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) Banks are among our enduring of financial institutions. Their survival in so many different historical periods is testimony to their importance. Professor Shiller traces the origins of interest rates from Sumeria in 2000 BC, to ancient Greece and Rome, up to the Song Dynasty in China between the 10th and the 12th century. Subsequently, he looks at banking in Italy during the Renaissance and at the goldsmith bankers in 16th and 17th century England. Banks have survived so long because they solve adverse selection and moral hazard problems. Additionally, he covers Douglas Diamond's and Philip Dybvig's model, which does not only analyze the banks' role for liquidity provision, but also reveals the possibility of bank runs. This leads Professor Shiller to deposit insurance as a means to prevent bank runs. He discusses the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as well as the Federal Savings and Loans Insurance Corporation, together with the role that the latter played during the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s. The necessity to regulate banks in the presence of deposit insurance results in a discussion of the role of the Basel commission and an explicit calculation to illustrate the core principles of Basel III. At the end, Professor Shiller provides an overview of financial crises since the beginning of the 1990s, with the Mexican crisis of 1994-1995, and the Asian crisis of 1997. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Bitcoin Q&A: What is the appeal of sound money?
What functions of money does the current stage of bitcoin fulfill? What is the current popular use case? Why will unit of account be the last function we achieve? Which use cases will accelerate bitcoin adoption in western countries (ex. Germany)? Why should we not be so hard on speculation and hedging against devaluation? What is the appeal of sound money? Will bitcoin become a world reserve currency? Why is gold not a good medium of exchange? How do we incentivise spending of bitcoin, when the current trend is to hold? Why is HODLing simultaneously hard? Why do mainstream economists call it "hoarding" instead of "saving"? These questions are from the HoshoCon event, the October Patreon Q&A sessions, the Seattle 'Internet of Money' tour event, and the November Patreon Q&A session, which took place on October 11th, October 27th, November 10th, and November 17th 2018 respectively.

ATB Financial Sends Real-Time Payment From Canada to Germany Using Blockchain Technology
https://goo.gl/HQy2sk From the Live Lounge at SAPPHIRE NOW, Jack Shaw, Co-Founder and Executive Board Member, Blockchain Executive, sits down with Wellington Holbrook, Chief Transformation Officer, ATB to discuss leveraging blockchain for international currency payments. ATB is a world apart both geographically and figuratively from the giant monolithic banks you find in the big FinTech hubs of London UK, Hong Kong and Singapore. A few years back ATB migrated off their legacy core banking platform onto SAP and it's showing dividends. Their new Online Shopping Platform built on SAP Hybris is a fresh new way to browse and purchase financial products. With its shopping cart model it looks more like Amazon than a traditional ‘application form’ style sales journey. Using a network built on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP Payment Engine and Ripple’s enterprise blockchain solutions, ATB transferred CA$1000 (EUR667) to ReiseBank in Germany. It took just 29 seconds for a transaction to complete that would otherwise have taken 6 days, whilst still complying with Anti-money laundering regulation. What’s more impressive is that the whole proof of concept was designed and built in just 9 working days!

Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006.

What does it mean for dealers in stocks, bonds, and currencies when the stock market takes a roller-coaster ride and huge fortunes dissolve into thin air? Are good traders emotionally disturbed people, as an American study claims to show? And when a person buys and sells for millions every day, how does he think? Reporter Andreas Be Hewel visited a former Deutsche Bank currency trader. He tells us how stressful the job is and how disciplined and fast-reflexed a currency dealer must be.
