Bag’s Take-Away:
Part of the impunity of Wall Street firms has to do with how stealth they are — how they can operate like individuals in the eye of the conservative Supreme Court justices and the expected Republican nominee but otherwise lack a public face. With the news of the massive derivative loss by JPMorganChase, one apparently still mounting, this AP photo tries to capture both problems, the anonymity and the loss.
Monolithic in scale (playing off the tiny figure, citizens or shareholders but a speck), there is also a Darth Vadar-ish quality to the picture, the darkness compounded by the black skin of the building and the man.

(photo: Seth Wenig/AP caption: A man talks on a phone in front of the Chase logo at JPMorgan Chase headquarters in New York, Wednesday, May 16, 2012. U.S. House Republican Rep. Shelly Moore Capito, chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee, on Wednesday said that the $2 billion trading loss at JPMorgan Chase raises critical questions about how banks control their risks. But Republican lawmakers rejected calls from Democrats for stricter oversight of Wall Street. )

The caption says it all here. And the problem is, neither side in the upcoming election will make an issue of the fact that usable housing is being demolished rather than allowing owners to return to buildings abandoned in the foreclosure crisis.

Under the federal mortgage settlement’s anti-blight provisions, banks get credit for donating, demolishing or forgiving debt on abandoned homes, the last of which is intended to encourage the owner to return. They receive 100 cents on the dollar for each demolition and donation and 50 cents for debt forgiveness.)

Bag’s Take-Away:
Italy’s new welfare minister breaks down as she announces austerity measures and is unable to say the word “sacrifice.” She has a future. Maybe. But what a gift to her boss.  I won’t go into the gender politics of Monti having to step in and provide the word “sacrifice,” what matters to me is that the government bought at least temporary immunization from the type of public sentiment demonstrated in Greece.

(photo 1: abc news photo 2: Zuma Press caption:  Italy’s welfare minister, Elsa Fornero, started crying as she spoke during a press conference Sunday on the country’s new austerity package. Prime Minister Mario Monti and his government were outlining a new three-year, €30 billion ($40.17 billion) austerity plan.)
