DealBook – After SAC Plea, Fellow Funds May Pay – 6 November 2013

DealBook

By ALEXANDRA STEVENSON

In striking its $1.2 billion settlement with SAC Capital Advisors, the government set a record for insider trading penalties. For the hedge fund industry, the hidden costs of the deal are even bigger.

Tougher regulatory scrutiny since the financial crisis and changes in the law have forced hedge funds to spend millions of dollars a year on new compliance measures to make sure that they are not ensnared in the same net as SAC. This has added to the cost of doing business, which can cut into returns.

Steve Lendman – Kerry In Cairo – 6 November 2013

StevelendmanOn July 3, Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) ousted President Mohamed Morsi.

Doing so was an old-fashioned coup. It has no legitimacy. It doesn’t matter. Junta power replaced an elected government. Interim officials were appointed.

ZeroHedge – Guest Post: Congress Sells Out To Wall Street, Again

ZeroHedgeOriginally posted at Represent.us blog,

The U.S. House just passed a bill called H.R. 992 – the Swaps Regulatory Improvement Act – that was literally written by mega-bank lobbyists. It repeals the laws passed in 2010 to prevent another meltdown like the one that crashed our economy in 2008. The repeal was co-sponsored by a former Goldman Sachs executive and passed with bipartisan support from some of the House’s largest recipients of Wall Street cash. It’s so appalling… so unbelievable… so blatantly corrupt… that you’ve got to see it to believe it: Continue reading
