  1. That conversation brought home a message from a panel I attended Thursday evening, in which Goldman Sachs chief Lloyd Blankfein discussed the bank’s $500 million program to train, mentor and provide capital to people running small businesses. On the panel with Blankfein were (among others) former Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings, who has taught community college professors how to implement Goldman’s training program, and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, whose city has had 180 small business operators complete the Goldman program over the last six years. What all of them emphasized – including Blankfein – is the talent and brains of the small-business owners they’ve come to know. Blankfein said that the only difference between some of the graduates of the program and Goldman bankers is opportunity. Many of the small-business owners are first- or second-generation Americans who didn’t have the education of your typical Goldman banker. Or they didn’t have connections or access to capital. Fate put them on the wrong side of the opportunity divide.In the four weeks since Ben Bernanke first mentioned that the Federal Reserve Board might start to taper its program of quantitative easing (QE) later this year, more than $2 trillion was wiped off the value of global stock markets — and probably far more from the value of global bonds, which is harder to estimate.

  2. Consider the following quotes:

  3. So as soon as MF Global bought those bonds, it turned around and pledged them as collateral when it was borrowing money. That’s the repo.

  4. Finally, in any case like this that touches on the transparency of financial markets whose gyrations have so depressed our economy and debilitated our lives, there is an overriding public interest in knowing the truth. In much of the world, propaganda reigns, and truth is confined to secretive, fearful whispers. Even in our nation, apologists for suppressing or obscuring the truth may always be found. But the S.E.C., of all agencies, has a duty, inherent in its statutory mission, to see that the truth emerges; and if fails to do so, this Court must not, in the name of deference or convenience, grant judicial enforcement to the agency’s contrivances.
