Understandable Explanation of Derivative Markets


Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Detroit. She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronize her bar. To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later.

She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around about Heidi's "drink now, pay later" marketing strategy and as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Heidi's bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in Detroit .

By providing her customers' freedom from immediate payment demands, Heidi gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages. Consequently, Heidi's gross sales volume increases massively.

A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognizes that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Heidi's borrowing limit. He sees no reason for any undue concern, since he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral.

At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert traders transform these customer loans into DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then bundled and traded on international securities markets. Naive investors don't really understand that the securities being sold to them as AAA secured bonds are really the debts of unemployed alcoholics.

Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb, and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation's leading brokerage houses.

One day, even though the bond prices are still climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi's bar. He so informs Heidi.

Heidi then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons, but being unemployed alcoholics they cannot pay back their drinking debts. Since Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations, she is forced into
bankruptcy. The bar closes and the eleven employees lose their jobs.

Overnight, DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS drop in price by 90%. The collapsed
bond asset value destroys the banks liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community.

The suppliers of Heidi's bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms' pension funds in the various BOND securities. They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds. Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family business that had endured for three generations. Her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor who immediately closes the local plant and lays off 150 workers.

Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multi-billion dollar no-strings attached cash infusion from the Government. The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on employed, middle-class, non-drinkers.

Now, do you understand?

A blonde woman was speeding down the road in her
little yellow corvette and was pulled over by a woman
police officer who was also a blonde.

The blonde cop asked to see the blondes driver's
license. She dug through her purse and was getting
progressively more agitated. 'What does it look
like?' she finally asked.

The policewoman replied, 'It's square and it has your
picture on it.'


The driver finally found a square mirror in her
purse, looked at it, and handed it to the
policewoman. 'Here it is,' she said.

The blonde officer looked at the mirror, then handed
it back saying,'Okay, you can go. I didn't realize
you were a cop!.....

TRO, you just made me MORE depressed. Thid country is going to pot. I'm more convinced now that the Dow is on its way to 4000. GM, Citi, BoA, AIG and a whole lot more are history. Get used to not seeing GM around any more, they are toast. This whole bailout was a total waste of money. This is all going to make the Great Depression seem like a tea party. Good luck to all. I sold everything today. Wish I sold months ago. At least I saved myself another 50% haircut.

QUEBEC CITY (Reuters) - The chief executive of private equity firm Blackstone Group (BX.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), Stephen Schwarzman, said on Tuesday the global financial crisis and tight credit had created golden opportunities to invest.

New York-based Blackstone, one of the world's biggest private equity firms, has been hammered as the crisis froze credit markets. Its stock is trading at about a quarter of its $31-a-share initial public offering price in June 2007. Blackstone's shares closed up 45 cents at $7.45 on Tuesday.

"There are now golden opportunities to buy assets in almost every asset class," Schwarzman said in a speech at an annual North American Venture Capital Summit.

Schwarzman called himself "a raging bull on private equity."

"This market is tailor made for making a fortune in the equity market," he said. "You can make phenomenal returns for very little investment."

He said consumer and investor panic, together with the beginnings of what he called a "normal" recession cycle, had driven down the prices of even blue-chip stocks.

He blamed the panic on failure of the U.S. Congress to pass the first bailout package. "Congress made a complete mess of this," he said. "It was like we'd set our house on fire and left to get an ice cream cone without calling the fire department."

He credited senior U.S. politicians, regulators and financiers, including himself, with winning passage of the $700 billion bailout package.

"It was absolutely essential to restoring the health of (the system)," said Schwarzman. Without it, he added, "forget venture capital, forget private equity. It was an end-of-the-world scenario."

But Schwarzman said consumers "remain scared out of their minds (and) are cutting back on their spending."

In particular, he said people are "scared of equity markets," adding that panic-driven selloffs have wiped out as much as $10 trillion from hedge funds.

Schwarzman said shares of equity companies, "even excellent ones," are selling at rock-bottom prices. "This is the easiest time to make money," he said.

"Consumers have all gone to one side of the boat (and) it risks tipping over. But once people realize that financial institutions are sound and that we're really just going through another recession, they will be back (to the equity markets) and liquidity will come back."
