Satterwhites family disputes the allegation Craven was charged with a felony for discharging his gun into an occupied vehicle on April 7 the same day Michael Slager was charged with murdering Walter Scott He faces up to 10 years in prisonHave I mentioned how outrageous it is that AIG shareholders are suing the government over the AIG bailout that prevented them from total wipeout Have I compared them to homeowners suing the fire department for getting their furniture wet while saving their home Have I mocked the bailout critics who admit this lawsuit is "asinine" and "mostly insane" but still claim its performing a public service Oh I have Just last week Well this week the critics will get their wish as the architects of the Wall Street bailoutsHank Paulson Tim Geithner and Ben Bernankeare scheduled to testify in this frivolous lawsuit So this is a good time to concede there actually is a silver lining to this cloud of absurd litigiousness But it definitely isnt what the critics think it is Its that the AIG lawsuit while breaking new ground in chutzpah might help remind Americans that even though government rescued some Wall Street firms the financial crisis still cost a lot of Wall Street investors a lot of money The financial sector emerged way better than it would have without government help and its certainly thriving today but financiers didnt all emerge unscathed The critics have applauded the lawsuit for a very different reason They expect this weeks testimony to reveal The Truth about AIG which will surely involve Geithner and Goldman Sachs conspiring with Colonel Mustard to destroy Main Street while bwahahaha-ing all the way to the bank In fact the truth about the AIG bailout is already out there It was infuriating because bailouts are always infuriating but it was necessary and ultimately successful After insuring toxic mortgage assets for every major global financial institution AIG was dead in the water in September 2008 and its failure in the wake of the Lehman Brothers collapse could have shredded the global financial system Not only did the $182 billion AIG bailout save the firm it saved the system And US taxpayers eventually recouped their entire investment in AIG plus a cool $227 billion in profit The bailout helped AIG shareholders too Their equity was worth something instead of nothing Former AIG chief executive Hank Greenberg the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit unloaded $278 million worth of company stock in 2010; it presumably would have been worth nothing if the government had let the firm declare bankruptcy and the global economy implode Greenbergs complaint that the government unconstitutionally seized his propertyand that AIG was entitled to the same bailout terms as much less troubled banks that posed much less of a threat to global financial stabilityshould have been laughed out of court That said its important to recognize that while AIGs shareholders didnt lose everything they lost an unimaginable amount of money AIG stock plummeted from a high above $150 a share to less than $5 the day of the bailout The government then took over 799 percent of the company further diluting the value of each share And when AIG needed more help there was even more dilution In his memoir Stress Test Geithner recalls how at a time when the country wanted his head for being too gentle with AIG Greenberg visited him to complain that the Fed had been overly harsh by taking so much equity in AIG "I told him we hadnt done the deal to make money and wed be happy to sell him back some of the equity if hed be willing to take some of the risk" Geithner recalled Greenberg wasnt willing so taxpayers rather than shareholders enjoyed most of the upside of AIGs recovery I helped Geithner with Stress Test so Im biased but I think Greenbergs pique is silly; there wouldnt have been any upside for anyone if the government hadnt stabilized AIG and the rest of the system At the same time I think the terms of the AIG bailout were legitimately tough on investors who made bad bets on a reckless firm They were certainly tougher than the terms of the broader Wall Street bailout known as TARPand some bankers complained bitterly about TARPs terms which were intended to be (and were) tough enough to encourage banks to pay them back as quickly as possible All of the bailouts were designed to balance the need to quell the panic in the markets and pave the way for economic recovery with the need to protect taxpayers They ultimately did both The larger point so often missed in the post-crisis too-big-to-fail debate is that the lavish Wall Street bailouts did not shield all of Wall Street from pain Critics of the bailouts often say they sent a message that you could invest in Wall Street behemoths without risk that government would cover all your losses when markets turned sour Its amazing this even needs to be said six years after a financial shock five times as large as the shock that preceded the Great Depression but thats simply wrong Some of the jerks in suits took baths Main Street bore the brunt of the pain and thats not fair but there was plenty of pain on Wall Street too Lehman Brothers disappeared; its shareholders were wiped out and its executives all lost their jobs Investors in Bear Stearns Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Countrywide Washington Mutual Wachovia Citigroup Bank of America GMAC and other firms that got sucked into the crisis took baths too Very few of the big Wall Street CEOs kept their jobs after the bubble burst although some were fortunate enough to cash out their stock before the house of cards toppled completely Some savvy investors have taken advantage of the misfortunes of others; David Tepper a hedge fund manager made billions by buying bank stocks after the market hit bottom in March 2009 essentially betting on the success of the government rescue plans But markets always have winners and losers; the bailouts did help some of the losers limit their losses but they didnt change that essential capitalist truth The even larger point which should also be clear but most definitely isnt is that the Wall Street bailouts were not designed to enrich Wall Street They were designed to protect Main Street from a Wall Street cataclysm The goal was to prevent enough financial failure to stem the panic and lay the groundwork for recovery The goal was achieved Main Street was losing 800000 jobs a month during the panic; now its gaining more than 200000 jobs a month Yes Wall Street has enjoyed an even healthier recovery But punishing Wall Street during the panic would not have made things better for Main Street now; it would have accelerated the panic which would have been devastating for Main Street So we should mock the gall of the litigants who are suing the fire department that saved their homes Still we can recognize that some of their furniture got wet Contact us at [email protected] without his client’s knowledge, It sounds clichéd, The Financial Times also reported that Apple was building a secret team dedicated to developing virtual and augmented reality products.
