Finally…the SEC’s made a decision I can agree with…

Alright I might as well come out and admit that I am a dork. nerd. geek. whatev you want to call me I don’t care…as long as it’s not ignorant or disrespectful I’ll take it as a compliment. I read the Wall Street Journal everyday and through my classes I also have an online subscription for FREE…which is really nice.
Anyways…when the first bailout was being discussed in the House, there was an article in the WSJ entitled, “Momentum Gathers to Ease Mark-to-Market Accounting Rule.” Some 60+ members of Congress had written the SEC in support of a proposed suspension of the accounting rules stating that it would reduce the cost of (at that time) potential bailout.
Now…I am only a college student (studying mathematics, economics, finance and accounting) but even I could see that a suspension would simply be a temporary fix with huge potential to make the whole financial industry’s situation even worse than it was at the time. And to be honest, the fact that some 60+ members of Congress WROTE in support of a suspension left me with the feeling that “dumb and dumber” were in charge.
Now for anyone that doesn’t know….the mark-to-market accounting rules basically forces a company to write down the value of their assets to the assets’ current market value instead of at the price the company paid for said assets. So, for instance, many banks invested heavily in various financial securities (like mortgage-related ones) but the securities market have all but dried up in the last six months, and so the banks have had to write down the value of their securities assets to the current dirt cheap market values. That, in turn, creates a even greater balance sheet problem especially for those banks and companies which are already struggling without reducing the value of their assets.
Many people, such as those 60+ members of Congress, would say that it sounds like (at least on the surface) like a bad rule but at the it provides vital protection for investors. Everyday we hear about a new troubling company attempting to court a potential investor to provide an immediate source of capital or to buy the company…if this rule were to be suspended it would really put those investors at a great disadvantage with a lack of critical financial information.
But in the spirit of real Americana the SEC is expected to pass the buck on providing real guidance on how to apply the rule in our current market to the FASB.

(shakes head) It’s like when I was little and my mom would tell me to put my jewelry away neatly in my jewelry box but I never did. Eventually I would find myself with a tangled mess of necklaces and bracelets that seemed to take forever to unwind and straighten out.
As much as I hate to say it, I feel like the government’s only just opened the jewelry box and discovered the problem. We haven’t even begun to untangle our mess of financial, economic and poor business decisions.

Absoluting love Adele…

Adele’s album 19 is amazing start to finish.
And I will be the first to admit that I download lots of music for free but I actually bought Adele’s album off of iTunes. It was well worth the dollars and I have no problems supporting an amazingly talented artist like Adele….it’s sad but its so rare anymore for an album to be great…most of the time its a few hits and the rest is garbage.

Here’s one of my favorites…”Cold Shoulder”

Check out more of her videos on her youtube channel
