bear stearns is failing


jpmorgan and the fed are providing temporary financing. bear shares are down $19 to $38 and still falling as of this writing.

forget carlyle. we now have the investment bank failure that everyone thought we'd need to see before the crunch alleviated.

question is: will there be more?

for what it's worth, it looks to me like jpmorgan is positioning to be the one who takes over bear for pennies on the dollar, a la warren buffett vulturing salomon brothers.

FRB of NY (bank specific now - how cute the latest deception engineering) + JP Morgan + Bear Stearns?

Robbing Peter to pay Paul...to rob and pay Peter and Paul?

"The Song That Never Ends" meets "The Emperor Has No Clothes" nightmare continues.

What a mess. God help us all.

Thanks for your great blog.
