Banks are supposed to lend money, and when they stop – as they have in recent
months – the workings of our entire economy are threatened. Credit became so
frozen, the government had to step in this past week and take an ownership stake
in the country’s biggest banks.

On Monday Treasury Secretary Henry
Paulson summoned the CEOs of the nine largest banks to Washington – and gave
them a massive amount of money so they would start lending again.

largest of the banks is Bank of America (B of A) – now partly owned by the
United States of America.

The head of Bank of America, Ken Lewis, says
that when he and the others met at the Treasury Department, it became clear that
Secretary Paulson’s "offer" was an ultimatum – no negotiations.

other words, take it or leave it?" correspondent Lesley Stahl asked.

"Right. Right, right."

Smart Money 30 Video

I did a video interview with Smart Money a few months ago — warning that the credit and financial crisis about to get a lot worse — and by the time they were ready to post it, the Dow had already plummeted 2000 points (or as its been known around here lately, Tuesday).

They had me come in and reshoot another 4 minutes worth:

Jeez, look at my eyes . . .  I have to stop smoking those big fatties in the car on the way to these things. Visine no longer seems to do the trick! (heh)

I will be on Powerlunch from 1:15 to 2pm today, discussing the markets, bailout/rescue plan, Bernake testimony, and all things crisis related:

1. The new Bailout price tag is $2.25 Trillion Dollars

2. Ben Bernanke speech on why he took this job and WTF did he get himself into Stabilizing the Financial Markets and the Economy;
