Fed's Emergency-Loan Borrowers Included Foreign Banks, Goldman Sachs, GE, McDonalds, PIMCO & Michael Dell

The Federal Reserve’s emergency lending during the financial crisis spanned the global economy, from the largest U.S. financial firms to community banks, hedge funds and a fast-food company.

The Fed, in compliance with orders from Congress, today named recipients of $3.3 trillion in emergency aid. Among them were U.S. branches of overseas banks, including Switzerland’s UBS AG; corporations such as General Electric Co. and McDonald’s Corp.; and investors like Pacific Investment Management Co. and computer executive Michael Dell.

Lawmakers demanded disclosure, over the Fed’s initial objections, as U.S. central bankers pushed beyond their traditional role of backstopping banks to stem the worst financial panic since the Great Depression. The Fed posted the data on its website to comply with a provision in July’s Dodd- Frank law overhauling financial regulation.

“Perhaps most surprising is the huge sum that went to bail out foreign private banks and corporations,” Senator Bernard Sanders

"ron paul is not running....ron paul is not running" -bloomberg 'expert' morning after the bloodbath, i mean, debate!

How about the 1 trillion they

did not publish? whats the big secret?
$The fed elected to with hold publishing collateral data for $885 Billion.......

I would say it's a lot worse than we think. They only elected to divulge the what they feel can be easily justified with a little slick talk....

I want to see the $885 they are hiding...That's what we should really be upset about out because you and I know it's not going to be pretty.....

Harley Davidson?

It was reported also on Drudge that Toyota and Harley Davidson got bail out money. It went on to say Harley Davidson went to the Feds window 33 times and got two plus billion dollars. I guess I can imagine but not agree with money for banks to cover deposits, but Harley Davidson? Maybe now they can afford to put mufflers on those things now.

Harley Davidson probably got money because

they are part of the globalist system and building motorcycles in India.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Look at it this way, if you

Look at it this way, if you were the head of a huge multi-national and it looked like the end of the world finally arrived, and you were offered "free money"... you might have jumped at the opportunity too. Just sayin'.


this is very strange the Fed borrows from the Chinese and we pay an interest rate of lets say 1 percent.

Then the Fed (with no authority) loans the money out to every Tom Dick and Harry at 0 percent as a bridge loan to pay their vendors.

Who gets soaked in the process?

where are the figures for ..

bailouts ??????

Why would Dell need emergency

Why would Dell need emergency aid? They were the #1 producer of PCs in the world.

Dell didn't need it

But it is a nice gift. I bet it is tied to providing some politcal favor of some kind.

Yes, I see what you are

Yes, I see what you are saying. They are calling this money "Emergency-Loan" but it is really just government and the banks paying people off at public expense.

Contributions money for the next election.

Nice racket.

Free includes debt-free!

You asked the bank to print some money for you, they did

you agreed to pay them back all the money they printed for you plus a bunch they printed for others. I agree banking is a scam on all levels, but when you accept the money, you have to accept the scam. You didn't get scammed by getting a mortgage, you tricked a homebuilder into building a home for paper. The whole system is a scam, banks are the public face. Stop banking. Problem solved.

GET ANGRIER and bump

keep this up on the list guys! it hits EVERY TAXPAYER Hard. yaiiigh!! wheres the brushfires!? LIGHT EM UP!!!

oh I'm pretty disgusted

I know! let's vote them all out! HAHAHAHA!!! That sounds so freakin' Pollyanna at this point.


wasn't RBS a HUGE recipient of the first BailOut? I thought they were like THE largest recipient.

Maybe the lack of this info is what helped make the stock market go crazy yesterday???

Not a word about Royal Bank of Scotland?

Fascinating. When the bailout happened, somebody published a report that RBS got a HUGE portion of that money, and now it is almost like someone is trying to cover for them and pretend RBS was not involved at all. I don't know, maybe the first report was wrong, but I KNOW they revise history...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I'm with you Fishy

I know that there was a post here at DP...this where I get my news! I also know that, at the time, I spoke with a woman at Citizen's Bank (owned by RBS) and she had mentioned it in conversation as well.


The "disappearing news" is not a new phenomenon, but it always amazes me when I catch them red-handed.
Have you noticed they cannot predict the weather at all any more? Several times there will be something at yahoo weather for my town like: Hi today 50, low 39, current temperature 32 or 62 or something WELL out of the range. They missed the first and last frost this year, too. Very odd.
