For apologists, #SVB's #bailout was mere prudence: innocent bystanders stood in harm's way - rank-and-file startup employees, elite private school scholarship kids -so regulators improvised measures to make everyone whole without costing the public a dime. What's not to like?

But that account doesn't hold up to even the most cursory scrutiny. Everything about it is untrue. Take the idea that this wasn't a "bailout" because it was the depositors who got rescued, not the shareholders.

Supposedly, the #SiliconValleyBank #bailout wasn't a bailout: in a bailout, the *investors* get public money; but with #SVB, it was the depositors. But, of course, SVB's owners were also depositors in their bank. All in all, SVB's owners are entitled to $2B in public money. 1/ An old fashioned corner bank. Its sign has been replaced wit

When #Biden said, "investors in the banks will not be protected. They knowingly took a risk and when the risk didn’t pay off, investors lose their money. That’s how capitalism works," he was ignoring the fact that this isn't how *the law* works. 3/

All da banks is locking arms to stop dis ...

Da Fed committed to a $2T infusion dat is currently pumping markets ...

Da dolla is done ...

Say hello to hyper inflation ...

Digital currency this year.
All da stimmy monies from 2020 hit da banks and per #BCBS regs they have to keep a certain % of da deposits in reserves.

Long-dated are typically da "Gold Standard" fer dis. They are usually a "Risk-Free" investment with enuff return to offset inflation.

It's a win-win fer all
Except last year, da @FedralReserve started hiking interest rates at a retarded rate.

Dis (1) Depressed Risk Appetite (2) Increased Demand fer Cash and (3) Cranked up Return on Short-term Gubment Debt

Da first 2 killed equities but da last one is da real killer.

1/4: The Federal Reserve just announced a new lending program to prevent banks from running out of cash and causing problems for the economy.

2/4: The program is like what central banks have done for many years: lending money to banks so that customers can always access their accounts.
3/4: This new program will let banks borrow money from the Fed instead of having to sell off assets like Treasuries to pay their customers.

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.

3/ Four Republican Senators on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee who knew how bad the virus was, sold their stocks ahead of a market collapse which saw equity valuations plunge up to 40% worldwide in a matter of weeks.

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

#BeyondHeadlines: There are not-so-obvious global reasons why the #OilMarketCrash is NOT good for #India.

Heavy #QE/ currency pressure + Intense #geopolitical tension

= #India, importer & friend to all oil producers, in the crosshairs.

Thread on these impacts of #OilPrice 👇 Image
US #oilprice crashed negative for the 1st time in history. West Texas Intermediate (a US crude) traded as low as -$40.32 a barrel. So far the bulk of the losses are in US crude, -200 to -1000%! Global (Brent) crude has not gone down as much because global storage still exists.
#COVID19 #lockdown has sharply cut all travel & thus demand for oil. Excess supply of oil resulted in a shortage of #storage space, esp in North America. As they & slowly the rest of the world run out of storage, the demand for future oil contracts (futures) goes down sharply

SPECIAL REPORT:Despite leaving nearly every other sector of the economy in ruins, the #COVID19 pandemic has been a windfall for the for-profit #healthcare industry, which is expecting to make dazzling profits off of the crisis.
By: @AlanRMacLeod
United #healthcare the country’s largest insurer, controlling over 50,000 #Doctors will announce yearly profits of over $21 billion. Former healthcare industry director @wendellpotter, has accused the conglomerate of unethical practices.
"Patients are getting crushed financially because of UnitedHealth’s actions. And, some doctors may as well,” Potter says, concluding that, “As ER docs & other #Physicians risk their lives treating #COVID19 patients, @UnitedHealth is playing games to rake in profits.

Richard Branson's airline Virgin Atlantic has asked its employees to take eight weeks unpaid leave over the next three months, but is calling for a €8.5 billion bailout package for its industry.
Branson has not paid income tax since moving to the tax-free British Virgin Islands 14 years ago. Also dividends sent to Branson’s residence Necker Island are not taxed at all.

We need BETTER OVERSIGHT of a #bailout for the #COVID19 crisis. It's worth $5 trillion - a quarter of GDP. We need to use Phase 4 legislation to improve oversight. Let's not play small ball. (Hat tip: @kyledcheney+@mzanona) THREAD 1/12
.@RepKatiePorter, mindful that the public remembers the #bailout of #WallStreet all too well, hits the right notes: “In the wake of the financial crisis 10 years ago, there are going to be a lot of suspicions. Can we trust the Fed and the Treasury?” 2/12…

#WallStreet sees a public health crisis as an opportunity to profit, and it shows in the McConnell #bailout plan, a multi-trillion-dollar giveaway to corporate America that @GoldmanSachs may actually run! Check it out and fight back: THREAD 1/10…
The plan envisions two pots of money for the bailout, $75 billion pot and a $425 billion pot. The smaller pot (for airlines and industries deemed important for national security) has some restrictions on it, but they are minimal 2/10
Executives couldn’t earn more than what they did the previous year (a record year for airline bosses) the restrictions last only 2 years, even though the loans from the $75 billion pot would last 5 years. No requirement to give taxpayers equity. Minimal buyback limitations 3/10

#bailout Here's how America could kill two crises with one piece of legislation. Give all the companies asking for bailouts all the money they're asking for. Every penny. Instead of issuing more debt however, buy equity. Purchase ownership in them.
Take that aggregate equity and create a sovereign corporation that issues shares directly to every American citizen and sets up trusts for our children. Require the payment of quarterly dividends to be distributed directly via direct deposit to shareholders.
This way we wouldn't be working for "the man". We'd be the man. Encourage every business enterprise out there to come eat at the trough. Suck on the govt teat and bring the corporate socialism out into the open where we can see it and benefit from it.

2/ Big takeaway--politicians that weaponize the US banking system (blocking access to disfavored industries/countries) are modern-day Herbert Hoovers bc these barriers block both unlawful & LAWFUL commerce, & these barriers caused the invention of #stablecoins in the first place.
