    Please provide source of data as I can think of companies that should have the Chinese at way over 100k and the Japanese over 1 million. I would like to see who are missing.

  • GE says it would lose Angola locomotive deal if Ex-Im Bank closes [View news story]

    If you think that jobs is the only thing at steak here you need to study who and how the ex-im bank deals with. During the financial crisis people criticized banks for their stupid actions which were many. Now people want to stop corporate welfare and then people whine jobs. Ask yourself why does a billion dollar company with a financial arm with hundreds of billions of assets unwilling to do a 350mil deal without transferring the risk to the taxpayer.

    First it's not level playing field, second the private industry of manufactures can create a mutual insurance syndicate to cover their exposure. I am tired of the lack of thought by many, in this case GE whines about a 350 million deal while its finance arm has hundreds of billions in assets. You might also notice the present ex-im bank financed deals with those very countries who blatantly violate patents, then use near-slave labor practices to gain business at the expense of our middle class, thus enriching only other countries .

    You cant have it both ways.

    With all the teaching scandal and grade manipulation going on I don't go by grades.
    No disrespect intended but when you said they are more educated in terms of technology the first thing I though of was the screen at the grocery that shows the clerk in picture a quarter, a dime and three pennies
    to give me 38 cents change.
    I live outside of Austin and they asked the kids at UT on the day of the 2012 election certain what I would say simple questions
    Like how many branches of government do we have?
    Who is the present vice president? The majority could not give the correct answers. I know my kids have and continually will do well because my wife and I went the extra mile but I don't think the majority are being given the long term fundamentals.
    good luck to you

    First I'm glad you made millions on IBM & MSFT. I made quite a lot on both myself. IBM would have never got off the ground if the government didn't force Ma Bell to give the software rights to IBM. it took nearly 100 years to fold. IBM went to its knees in the early 1990's. It did dust itself off and worked well until the middle of the last decade and now is slowly going down hill. They have tried to be a star with the cloud computing but
    they have formal competitors and my guess it will be after 2020 for us to see who the winners will be. I won't put any new money in because I see
    them been in the pack and not any of the front runners.
    We still have TBTF but instead of dodd frank helping it put a glass ceiling
    so the regions can not grow against the top banks.

    Personally I would do a version of 1984 that they did to ATT to solve it once and for all.

    IT TECH people are like Teachers when you look at some of the individuals they excel at what they do however when you look at them as a whole
    there overall performance is poor. I assume you are near my age(68). Do you think the average kid today is as well educated as we were?

    I was a good idea however
    from their site

    To be eligible for financing by PEFCO, loans must be protected against nonpayment under an appropriate guarantee or insurance policy issued by the Export-Import Bank of the United States

    I agree I'm not against regulations, I'm against stupid regulations.(DODD-FRANK) Chicago/Illinois has the most gun control legislation it also has the most body counts for it's size. I'm for good gun regulations and I have a license and went through the gun safety course. I also go to the range regularly so I make sure I hit what I'm aiming at.

    Exactly, Companies should pay no more than 2mil in salary and then an option package 25% exercisable in 5 yrs. 25% in 10 years 25 % at age 65 and 25% at age 70. This will keep good executives and also make them become forward looking not just earning at the end of the year.

    "GE Capital can't take on that kind of risk. Nor can other private lenders"

    Please explain why GE Capital can't do bank syndication?
    What's 350 million in todays world of syndication?
    You need to ask yourself why won't other banks and hedge funds won't
    put up the MONEY.

    Note: I own GE securities.

    Yes, it does make money however it puts the taxpayer not the corporations at risk. It is corporate welfare and needs either to wind down or be converted into a mutual bank owned by the exporting companies.

    You don't understand percentages so don't use them. The question you should answer is what's the net change to stock equity because that your real stake.

    No, I don't hear your disgust, I hear someone who has no clue that the ex-im bank is a form of corporate welfare. A lot of bridges have failed but can you tell me why the uses of those bridges refuse to up the state gas tax to fix them. Ever think the state not the federal government should pay for it's own infrastructure?

    Truly think it out
    First the EX_IM gets the initial capital from the government and makes loans on behalf of profitable companies. if the deal is a winner the company get 90% of the profit and the bank get around 7% profit.
    If the deal is a loser the company walks away and the taxpayer takes the hit. If we roll down the bank we get our (taxpayer) money back and no more corporate welfare.
    Simple question why doesn't GE Cap make the loan?

    Why should the taxpayer take the risk and GE the reward?

    Why doesn't GE CAP fund the deal?
