Commercial banks are in the business of taking deposits and making loans.  Banks don't only get money from the "fed" as you put it.  They get capital from depositors, equity owners of the bank (shareholders) and many of them issue their own public and private debt on their own (this comes from people/pensions/etc who are making a profit off the banks EVIL!!!! ?).  They make money by prudently managing risk, and provide a ton of value.  How do you think businesses support themselves?  If it only came from the owner's putting in equity and retaining cash flow generated, then many/most companies would not be able to operate.  Bank debt is way cheaper than getting people to invest in your business.  That's the value they provide.  

Investment banks essentially are middle men or service providers.  They create, structure, and market "securities" to investors who want to buy them on behalf of entities (cities, towns, organizations, companies) who need capital.  In addition, they offer advice for these same entities regarding these, and other corporate transactions.  They earn a small percentage of the proceeds.  Without these middlemen, once again, these entities would have trouble accessing capital to fund their operations.  For example, skeen say your father's machine shop was bigger, and he wanted to sell it when he retired.  How would he go about finding the most appropriate buyer and ensuring a fair price was received?  An investment bank.  Wouldn't it be worth the 5% of the sale proceeds in fees to the bank if they were able to earn an additional 10% over what your dad could sell it for alone by having knowledge of the industry and who the potential buyers would be?  Not much different than a realtor, consignment shop, etc.

I personally don't see that as any different than a retailer or distributor, but for some reason skeen and kunk seem to see it as different because the product they are retailing/distributing is money.

This is so much undergraduate bullshit. Banks are nothing like retailers or distributors.

They are not simply financial intermediaries.

They create money, by creating loans. That is clearly acknowledged, even by the central banks.
They do not require deposits to do this, they create the loan first which in turn creates a deposit
Why can they create money and other individuals or companies cannot? because they have an account at the federal reserve.

Blah blah but not all banks are like that, some are investment banks. Except that Glass-Seagall was repealed


You have learnt your economics from outdated textbooks in college I imagine. http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publications/Documents/quarterlybulletin/2014/qb14q102.pdf

I haven't been in the gym since Monday. Tomorrow is going to be a nice fresh day killing my chest and arms bro style.

So what if I give someone a loan, how is that any different? What about the tons and tons of private loans held by individuals? What's the difference? You realize banks are owned by people right? Very confused.

Undergraduate lol, what do you think I do for work?

I'm exited. I'm going to video myself warming up and doing a work set today so I can send it to Charly. He's going to give me the gains and do my squats for me.

Yup as a kid from like 7-15 I had to take genotropin everyday. It was a bitch to get insurance to even cover it and was super expensive at that time, something like 50k a year.

Totally shitty week for everyone it seems. Benched way under PR for reps on Wednesday and still nearly got pinned under bar on last set, just barely managed to get it racked. Then skipped leg day completely yesterday. Let's see tonight, new day new luck.

I felt like under eating to cut but then not taking a look at macros really fucked me up big time. I'm back to MyFitnessPal and obsessive tracking to make it as low carb as possible.
I'm at 72mg ephedrine, 900 mg coffeine a day (split in 3 doses) again and can feel nothing even though I paused 2 months since the last time. When I'm out of EC stack in 2 weeks I'll give it a 1 week rest and then try Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite (who comes up with names like that!?), had the feeling that Yohimbin helped me more than Ephedrine.

I could just as well do it without supplements but that 0 energy and shitty mood feeling of low carb makes me even less acceptable than my bitchy sarcastic attitude at work did it already the last months. cloud.gif
