White House,: Barack Obama used innovative methods of organisation to win big --and emphasised a lot of digital innovation in his own campaign which enabled him to access more followers and donations. Five tech trends employed by Barack Obama’s election campaign:~ 1. Gather the data. Then use it:~  Obama’s team put it to their advantage, coordinating the teams deciphering this data with the people in charge. How using big data to analyse what people actually wanted could influence business decisions. In fact, they were so important campaign spokesman called the data crunchers “our nuclear codes” 2. Put all your databases in one place:~  the campaign spent time creating a single database that could be used by pollsters, fundraisers and other officials.The benefits of this type of system are huge. You get more accurate results, you can spend your money more efficiently, and it results in less waste. 3.

IMF holds meetings in Europe over S&P court case   [Published 7 Nov 2012]  The impact of the Federal Court's historic ruling against ratings agency Standard & Poor's for misleading and deceptive conduct in its issuing of AAA ratings to high-risk financial products is set to become global, according to a report by The Australian.   IMF Australia chief executive John Walker is reportedly planning to hold discussions with investors from Britain, France, Germany and The Netherlands over the weekend about a possible legal case there against S&P.The European discussions will revolve around more than €800 million ($A980 million) worth of synthetic derivative products. “I am going to speak with people in Germany and France and the UK and The Netherlands about their investments in CPDOs to see whether they are interested in joining together in a claim against what is now called RBS and S&P to recover some compensation,” Mr Walker said, according...

RBA could already be selling $A overseas: UBS   [Published: 7 Nov 2012] -- Investment bank UBS believes the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) could already be printing Australian dollars and selling them to foreign central banks in a bid to minimise buying pressure on the currency, The Australian Financial Review reports. Such a move is said to be an exact adherence to suggestions made by former RBA board member Warwick McKibbin to the newspaper in August. According to the AFR, UBS analysts Gareth Berry and Andrew Lilley have raised concerns over what they deem to be a sudden accumulation of foreign exchange on the central bank's balance sheet during the months of August and September. The accumulation has been labelled a form of “passive intervention” and reportedly been matched by a lift in deposits of overseas institutions held at the RBA. In the week ending October 31, $2.1 billion is reported to have been deposited, which...

If the Australian government is willing to learn from the mistakes of others this interview with Nigel Farage contains some timely lessons in history and the capacity of human beings everywhere to repeat their own mistakes in the belief that this is progress. There is a better way and that way is true democracy, strong oversight on the corruption of referenda and other voting opportunities and drawing on the inherent strengths of each country independently interacting with other independent nations. Bureaucracy breeds more bureaucracy and inevitably that creates more waste, the need for more debt and serves few amongst those who actually pay for the "service" out of their own pockets.

  Bara Kristinsdottir for The New York Times   Updated: July 9, 2012 Iceland is a small but rugged country far from anywhere that suffered from financial wreckage as severely as any in the developed world after its overstretched banks failed in 2008. In a matter of weeks after the banks’ collapse, the unemployment rate jumped to 10 percent, house prices fell, the currency plunged and inflation surged. During the boom years, Iceland became a nation obsessed with banking. The success of the nation’s banks, however, was deceptive. The economy was fueled almost entirely by foreign money. Then, as the global financial infrastructure teetered on the verge of collapse, the bonds came due, and Iceland’s banks couldn’t repay them. Depositors in other countries raced to pull their money out of Icelandic banks. The government didn’t have the resources for a bailout; the banks failed. The government did guarantee that Icelanders would...

  Standard & Poors [cohorts] until this weeks Australian court decision sat comfortably behind the [purported] protected free speech under the first amendment to the US constitution, spuriously asserting that investors could not rely on the credit ratings issued by the 'agencies' as they were only "opinions" and not "financial advice" and there was no contract between the investor and the credit agency. But this is not the Americas and any abused first amendment "shield" is not a US product import 'down-under', otherwise granting impunity to credit agency's misdeeds operating within strained US jurisdiction.   Events must now compel the AOFM to immediately "REVIEW" all RMBS purchases completed under the umbrella of the credit agency's imprimatur, purporting AAA status, as their "stamp of approval" is not worth the paper it's written on, the RMBS related 'paper', bought site unseen relying on contrived 'face values', ongoing since 2008 on behalf of Australian Taxpayers (inc) --as they must be deemed 'unsafe' securities.

ABA - Advocating the Divine Right of Banks to return us all to the Dark Ages & debtors dungeons? In response to the ABA submission to ASIC EDR review, March 2012. BTW I noticed it took from 2009 to 2012 for ASIC to do undertake this review lol! And that this unenlightened effort to distort and corrupt the Australian justice system was pieced together prior to the wake up call given to the ABA and some Banks during the Senate Inquiry into post-GFC Banking. Not to mention the ongoing "bath" given to ASIC. I wonder if anything has changed now in the ASIC - ABA - Bank relationship and if this has changed the way in which FOS and COSL are managing borrower complaints? "The ABA understands that it is a natural response by a customer to the possibility of losing his or her residence to want to ward off...

I’m extremely worried ...the dodgy spruiker is back, in fine form, and investors, many with memories too short to recall the bad old days of rip-offs and questionable deals, are just begging for their money to be taken, and I am seeing more people being taken advantage of, and a return to a situation we saw in the early 90s. How can you tell if a deal is dodgy? You can’t, but here are some clues to protect yourself with the following guidelines:: ~ 1) Become educated [then] you will know how to spot a dodgy deal at 10 paces: ~ 2) Beware of property being marketed by a seminar or telemarketer as these people are paid big commissions: ~ 3) Never sign a deal on the day you see it ['caveat emptor', "buyer beware"]: ~ 4) Always confirm the value of a property through recent sales to determine actual value ['comparative sales']:...

Greece: The list, includes politicians, businessmen, shipping magnates, doctors, lawyers – a far cry from those who have borne the brunt of relentless austerity measures on the margins of society. "Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed; everything else is public relations" said Greek editor Kostas Vaxevanis, citing George Orwell. “My job is simply to tell the news and tell it straight. My job is to tell the truth -- before observers packed into the crammed courtroom broke into applause -- as such it was my duty to reveal this list. It is quite clear the political system did everything not to publish this list. If you look at the names, or the offshore companies linked to certain individuals, you see that these are all friends of those in power. Phoney lists had also begun to circulate. It was time for the truth," he told the Guardian during a recess. "We live...

  12-97MR ASIC chief elected chair of IOSCO board Thursday 17 May 2012 ASIC chairman Greg Medcraft was today elected chairman of the board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), following a vote of board members at IOSCO’s annual conference in Beijing. Mr Medcraft’s IOSCO term will begin when the current chairman, Masamichi Kono, steps down in March 2013 and will continue to September 2014. The IOSCO role will be held concurrently with Mr Medcraft’s ASIC responsibilities. ‘I am honoured to be elected chairman of IOSCO. This is an organisation that does important work, and as we face ongoing economic uncertainty in the Eurozone, that work is even more crucial,’ Mr Medcraft said. ‘My vision is for IOSCO to be seen by regulators and policy makers globally as effective, pro-active and forward looking. I want to make IOSCO the key global reference body for securities regulation, in much the...

Greg Medcraft gets his better ideas from the BFCSA site and all the letters that BFCSA, Storm, Westpoint and other "victims" of ASIC's blatant neglect, extended incompetency and reluctance to act. But the whole world knows now that ASIC will "protect" CBA and other banks in preference to doing their jobs. How do we know? Because Mr Turner, Chairman of the Board of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia announced that at the AGM. Unless I misread what he was talking about .... ASIC of course is supposed to be the impartial corporate regulator. ASIC seem to have missed the concept of impartial - Corporate regulations apply equally to banks and microbusinesses. ASIC also had the conflicting role of consumer protection and complaints against corporations. That, clearly, wasn't going to work. So ASIC opted for sticking with the strength e.g. banks of whom there were fewer and much easier to cope with...

Corporate cop flags derivatives crackdown:  As the old adage says, "there's never a cop around, when you need one". --Now ASIC chairman Greg Medcraft says he's "very worried" about derivatives. He's chairing a global taskforce with the French regulator in a bid to get ahead of certain banks which are "skirting" regulations. GREG MEDCRAFT:"They are basically manufactured on a global basis by banks etc. So perhaps there should be some guidance or standards established, for the way that the products are actually basically regulated" --STOP PRESS, Greg Medcraft, is understood to have overseen Societe Generale' mortgage securities business during the time it allegedly engaged in misconduct, and subject of a 2008 class action in the US brought by former employees alleging the bank's securitisation business engaged in fraudulent conduct between 2005 & 2008.
