Mukhtar Ablyazov’s role in the world’s fight against money laundering

Except for a few family members and a dwindling number of those who consider him a dissident, most people who have followed the Mukhtar Ablyazov story have nothing good to say about him. They see him as an embezzler, swindler and con man par excellence – a... guy whose theft of as much as $15 billion from BTA brought Kazakhstan’s once-strongest bank to its knees. In an ironic twist, Ablyazov actually may end up doing the world some good, although it won’t be of his own choosing.

Currency Wars: when Zero is too much

The best policy solution would be to renormalize interest rates and to allow massive debt restructurings from the inevitable pain that this would cause. The downside would be an ugly and deep recession as over-indebted and weak players are allowed to fail. The... upside would be the subsequent strong growth phase as capital is allocated appropriately, rather than unjustly to any debtor with a pulse in our crazy twilight world of zero or negative rates. But this solution is politically the most unappetizing possible so it is also the lease likely scenario.

We already saw the US rolling out stricter... capital demand requirements on US banks in 2014: Big US banks must boost capital by $68 billion under new rules.
