One reason big banks opposed the upcoming release of Fed emergency lending data is because the public would draw conclusions about the banks' condition, right or wrong. But with the panic conditions in the rearview mirror, maybe that's what should be happening.

    Joe, how much do the banks pay you sing their praises on websites like this?

     

    Or are you just delusional?

    Nope, no one is paying me to tell the facts....
    First of all you can't portray all banks as evil, there are well managed banks that obey the laws and follow strictly ethical codes....

     

    There has been some very serious ethical errors on some big banks like BAC...but you can't paint everyone that works in a bank as the son of Satan....

     

    Believe me, there are people working their a.... off every day, and they had never violated laws or ethics....

     

    In the finance industry are some rotten apples, but that it is a small percentage....

    of course thats what should be happening! The public needs to know which banks were the most irresponsible. These guys bang the table screaming for free markets until it can hurt their bottom line, then they want the govt to step in and help them hide information! you cant have it both ways fellas......

    I think it is more important as to where things are now, rather than where they were. And that's as an investor.

     

    The Public?
    As long as they have FDIC insurance, and, are treated fairly as customers, I don't think they care.

     

    Amercan Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and The Biggest Loser will likely command more of their attention.
    Or perhaps the opportunity to upgrade from I-Pad 1 to I-Pad 2
