Sharks in the Water: Who Really Caused the 2008 Financial Crisis?

2 | By Shah Gilani

Now that you know who had the power to let Lehman Brothers Inc. fail and why, you need to understand how Lehman and the other banks got so bloated on mortgage-backed securities and derivatives in the first place.

Because, when you learn who aided and abetted the leveraging of both Main Street and Wall Street, who really gambled America’s future by letting the financial crisis and the Great Recession happen, and what was gained by it, you’ll understand who really runs this country.

This is the story you were always afraid was true.

Make no mistake about it; while not everyone on Main Street who bought homes and flipped houses knew they were playing a dangerous game, almost everyone on Wall Street playing the mortgage game knew it was a calculated gamble.

Here’s how it all came to be

The Future of Algorithms is Here

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, an esteemed English mathematics professor claimed, “Don’t believe the algorithm.”

After debunking the use of a face-detecting algorithmic technology used to attempt to identify wanted criminals at a street party in London, the professor determined that the algorithm had a “paltry success rate.”

Though that particular algorithm did indeed have a poor success rate – correctly identifying only one wanted criminal out of 96 individuals flagged at the party – here at Money Map Press, there’s a different kind of algorithm that makes all others pale in comparison…

Not sure what we’re talking about?

Well, what if we told you that there is a successful algorithm out there, one with a staggering success rate of 93%… And with its help, you can make thousands of dollars each week with just the push of a button.

Something like that certainly sounds too good to be true, but after eight painstaking years of back testing and the enlistment of a team of incredible mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, this algorithm has the potential to produce life-changing cash.

And if you’re not getting rich right now, ask yourself one question: Why?

Ten Years On: Who Let Lehman Brothers Fail?

1 | By Shah Gilani

Ten years ago, on September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. failed in spectacular fashion.

The implosion of the $600 billion in assets investment bank immediately triggered the financial crisis, which led directly to the Great Recession.

But none of that had to happen.

Lehman could have been saved or, at least, slowly and systematically unwound. The financial crisis could have been averted, and the Great Recession should never have happened.

Those events happened for good reasons in hindsight. Not good for you, me, the economy, or America, but good for the re-shaping of political and banking powers who benefited from what they let happen.

This frightening reality tale starts with who let Lehman Brothers get so big, who let it fail, and why

Lehman Brothers: Ten Years After

0 | By Shah Gilani

Ten years ago this week, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., one of the largest investment banks in the world, filed for bankruptcy.

You might think you know what happened to Lehman, what caused the financial crisis, how the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve saved the banking system and stopped the Great Recession from turning into another Great Depression, and how we’re better off today because we didn’t go to hell.

However, you’d probably be wrong.

Lehman Brothers didn’t have to fail; a vindictive former executive from The Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE:GS), who ran the Treasury in 2008, let Lehman fail because of what happened ten years earlier, only weeks after he was anointed CEO of Goldman.

The frightening truth is the Treasury and the Fed engineered the financial crisis.

I’m going to tell you what really happened and why – everything you don’t know.

And it’s all coming to you, in three parts, next week.

Here’s a preview of what’s to come

Is Wells Fargo a Criminal Enterprise?

6 | By Shah Gilani

Something is really wrong with Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC), the third largest bank in the United States by assets and the eleventh biggest bank in the world.

After being hit with massive fines and paying out tens of billions of dollars to settle a litany of charges, Wells Fargo’s facing more investigations from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

And there’s no doubt that this will be the last of them.

So, I ask you, is Wells Fargo a criminal enterprise?

Before you comment, here’s my answer, what I think should happen to Wells Fargo, and how crooks like the ones at Wells are going to bring the economy to its knees

Who Owns the SEC Anyway?

1 | By Shah Gilani

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is running a “racket.” 

No, not like a tennis racket or a loud noise kind of racket – a racket as in a questionable or illegal scheme.

The SEC is in the pocket of lobbyists that serves Congress’s finest, and in the pocket of the exchanges they regulate, and public companies they oversee that trade on all the exchanges they let order-reading, front running bots work their way into. And they’re in the pocket of brokerage houses, especially “too-big-to-fail” ones.

Here’s another racket they tried to foist on us…

The Supreme Court’s Latest Decision Could Mean HUGE Profits… If You Know Where to Look

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

Earlier this spring, the Supreme Court made a shocking decision: in a 6-3 vote, the ban was lifted off the $400 billion “Black Market” of bookmaking.

Already, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Mississippi are leaping on board – and every other state is soon to follow.

In fact, you’re about to see the biggest transfer of money out of the hands of organized crime and into the hands of everyday investors – on par with the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.

SEC Chairman Wants to Let More Main Street Investors in on Private Deals

1 | By Shah Gilani

A Wall Street Journal article from August 30, 2018, titled SEC Chairman Wants to Let More Main Street Investors In on Private Deals, (eerily similar to my headline…) really grabbed my attention.

As in, “Really?”

While it’s a good idea on the surface – letting retail investors buy unregistered securities in would-be unicorns (private companies with a valuation of over $1 billion) so they can get rich and be eligible under current regulations to buy into hard-to-value deals restricted to “accredited” investors – there’s no way to adequately protect them in the jungle of private placement offerings.

Here’s the truth behind why this isn’t the best idea…

Goldilocks and the Not-Too-Hot, Not-Too-Cold Economy

0 | By Shah Gilani

If you’re wondering how the stock market’s been able to keep making higher all-time highs, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

That’s what campaign strategist James Carville told then-presidential hopeful Bill Clinton the American people wanted him to focus on during his 1992 successful run against incumbent George H.W. Bush.

For years now, America’s Goldilocks economy – growing not too hot and not too cold – has been driving investors into stocks.

It’s not stopping.

The economy’s going to keep humming, and the market’s going a lot higher.

Today I’ll tell you why
