Выруливает ли - и в сам деле - "финансовый кризис" на "тропу Энрон", или ...

... грозные об том заявление в Конгрессе носят характер театральных жестов?

Последний об том репортаж WSJ создает впечатление что видимо и на этот раз - как то случилось в предшествующий "рубежа веков" кризис - законодатели всерьез занялись поиском (на этот раз соответстветсвенно уже в финансовой индустрии) достаточно масштабной фигуры для совершения публичного акта ритуального заклания:

    A federal criminal probe under way since earlier this year is also looking at how candid company executives were with investors at a December 2007 investor conference and whether executives at AIG's financial-products unit, which sold derivatives contracts, misled AIG's outside auditor last fall.


    At congressional hearings Tuesday, a former internal AIG auditor wrote that he had early on raised concerns about being excluded from conversations about the valuation of the derivatives. The auditor, Joseph St. Denis, wrote in a letter to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that in early September 2007, he learned that AIG's financial-products unit had been asked for billions of dollars in collateral related to derivatives it had sold.

    "I was gravely concerned about this," Mr. St. Denis wrote. The derivatives, known as credit-default swaps, protect buyers against the risk of default on other investments, and AIG believed the likelihood of making payouts was remote. Mr. St. Denis wrote that the valuation model of one of AIG's trading partners "apparently indicated" that, in fact, the unit "was in a potentially material liability position."

    Mr. St. Denis wrote he wasn't personally involved in the valuation of the swaps at the unit. In the last week of September 2007, Mr. St. Denis wrote, the unit's head, Joseph Cassano, said he had "deliberately excluded" Mr. St. Denis "because I was concerned that you would pollute the process."

    In the letter, Mr. St. Denis said he resigned on Oct. 1, 2007, and that later that month, AIG's chief auditor, Michael Roemer, asked him why and said he would report those reasons to AIG's audit committee. Mr. St. Denis wrote that he told Mr. Roemer about Mr. Cassano's comment. That would indicate that a key AIG executive last fall was aware of Mr. St. Denis's concerns.


    Documents Show AIG Knew Of Problems With Valuations OCTOBER 11, 2008

Накапливающийся в стране гнев - особенно жарко видимо полыхнувший по поводу дискуссий в Конгрессе относительно бэйлаута в 700 млрд - должен быть потому как своевременно канализован в эмоционально убедительное для "масс трудового народа" русло "открытого судебного процесса над виновниками этих безобразий"(с).

Сделать это видимо в очередной раз надо будет - по давно сложившемуся для таких ситуация обыкновению - согласованно Конгрессу и исполнительной власти, не дожидаясь пока набирающий температуру "низовой огонь политических страстей" спонтанно - неплановым образом - пробьет какую либо опорную стенку из базовых для каркаса социальной системы страны "несущих конструкций" ...
