The Reasoning Behind Basel Three Liquidity Requirement Delays

My Dear Friends,

The entire reason for the agreed delay of the Basel Three liquidity requirements is the Western financial system’s balance sheets. They are cartoons because of FASB blessing of debatable values for paper assets such as OTC derivatives with absolutely no market relationship.

Put succinctly, the Western world financial system simply does not have the ability in terms of real liquidity to meet Basel Three requirements. That is the entire story. The tomes written on this should be but one line – bankrupts cannot meet liquidity requirement now or in two years from now.

Add this to the news that a derivative dealer out of Citi has been proposed as Secretary of the US Treasury and my conclusion is that in truth, “Father forgive them because they (our esteemed leaders) really do not know what they have gone and done.”

Respectfully,
Jim
