Justru yg ditakutkan Oom Bernanke cuman motong 0.50 - 0.75 aja, pasar kecewa, akhirnya kita lagi yang nangis bombay ( ( (
Jam berapa sih biasanya kalau pengumuman ? Mudah2an 1%lah cape juga optimis ini. He he he
Tuh kan kejadian :cry: :cry: :cry:
beneran Bernanke ternyata lihai. Seandainya Bear ngga ditolong Bernanke, elu, gw, tetangga, saudara, nasabah bank di Asia Eropa bakalan celaka. Everything is connected di era globalisasi, tanpa aksi the Fed kemarin bailout Bear, dan dibiarkan bangkrut, kredit market akan frozen, ground zero, dan ngga berfungsi, karena akan merambat kebank2 seluruh dunia. Jangan salahkan Ben sekarang, kalau mau salahkan, salahkan systemnya 3, 5 tahun yg lalu, dimana ada kegagalan untuk mengregulasi mortgage and derivatives markets.
bernanke is a good guy in the wrong time at the wrong place, yang bikin semuanya ini terjadi alan greenspan
biasa kalo saya nonton movie di bioskop, good guy always win in the end
sekarang gimana yach, will the good guy win ???
U.S. Treasury Rejects Democrats'' Calls for Housing Bailout
By John Brinsley and Kathleen Hays
March 19 (Bloomberg) – The Bush administration rejected suggestions that it is negotiating with congressional Democrats on legislative proposals to use government funds to ease a worsening U.S. housing recession.
Senator Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, today said in a Bloomberg Television interview that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is ``sympathetic'''' to a proposal by Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank to let the government insure refinanced mortgages. Dodd two days ago said ``there''s a greater receptivity'''' from the administration.
A Treasury official and a White House spokesman both denied that the administration is warming to proposals in Congress. Some lawmakers want Bush to dip into government coffers to help the housing industry and go beyond Paulson''s voluntary agreement among mortgage servicers to help struggling homeowners redo loan terms.
``Let me be very clear about this issue,'''' Assistant Treasury Secretary Anthony Ryan said in a Bloomberg Television interview. ``We have the right plan in place. We don''t want to see things that compromise that or undermine that effort.''''
Democrats including Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Schumer have suggested that while Paulson is willing to consider their proposals, he is being hampered by Bush''s resistance to a more activist approach.
``The White House itself still has these ideological handcuffs, saying no government involvement,'''' Schumer said.
Bush administration officials denied that, saying today there is no split between Bush and Paulson and that there weren''t talks with Frank and Dodd over their plans.
`More Harm Than Good''
``No one is negotiating on new legislative proposals on housing,'''' White House spokesman Tony Fratto said in an e-mailed statement. ``While we never rule out new ideas, we feel very strongly that any additional actions should be responsible and avoid doing more harm than good.''''
Paulson has repeatedly said he isn''t interested in using public funds or government guarantees to stem the surge in mortgage foreclosures that are at the root of the financial crisis. Bush said on March 15 that he wanted to avoid ``bad policy decisions'''' that would do more harm than good.
``We''re not going to support actions that would prolong the correction in housing, use taxpayer dollars to bail out speculators, or would lead to higher interest rates,'''' Fratto said.
The Treasury chief has backed voluntary accords among lenders to work with struggling borrowers renegotiate home loans and freeze interest rates on some subprime loans.
Under Frank and Dodd''s plan, announced last week, the Federal Housing Administration would insure refinanced mortgages after lenders reduce the loan principal to make payments more affordable to homeowners.
Ryan today said Congress instead should focus on passing legislation that would enhance the role of the FHA and toughen oversight of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the largest source of U.S. home financing.
``There is an important role for Congress to play and we need to see Congress move forward with legislation to help reform the FHA as well as the GSEs,'''' he said.
Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, in a telephone interview today, said all options should be on the table.
``I wouldn''t say using public funds is necessary, but I think it''s going to have to be considered,'''' Rubin said. ``Obviously there''s a great deal of strain. Policy makers ought to be looking at everything.''''
