However, he said it was too late to turn back as the money he invested was now gone. Stakeholders in business sectors also shared great concern over the growing money game trend. Lim Kah Leong, 29, a bank consultant, told theSun many did not want to come forward to financial institutions as the interest rate was low, although plans offered by banks are protected under Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) guidelines. "The situation is very worrying," he said, adding that he hoped regulatory bodies could do something to curb this menace. An insurance agent, known as Sim, also said his business had dampened since the money game trend began. He said many of his friends preferred to set aside their savings for these investment schemes instead of a stable and protected form of savings. Many JJPTR investors also posted their predicament on social media following the controversy surrounding the scheme.

Banks have turned cautious, reeling as they are from non-performing assetstotal stressed assets of scheduled commercial banks stood at Rs 9.64 lakh crore as of December 31, 2016. Chatterjee says "the biggest worry is the massive drop in gross fixed capital formation" (or net investment) from 34.3% in 2011-12 to 29.2% in 2016-17 (see "The Bad News"). The government may have revved up infrastructure spending but has not been able to make up for the lack of private sector investment. The government today accounts for two out of every three rupees spent on infrastructure, with its share now touching 68%, the highest since 2007. CMIE data shows that overall growth in infra projects has slipped from double digits to 8.8% in the January-March quarter.

The Iranian foreign minister has slammed the US for sabotaging efforts to conduct transactions with Iran’s banking system following the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 also known as the JCPOA. Mohammad Javad Zarif said the sanctions imposed on the Iranian banking system before the nuclear deal were aimed at disrupting the country’s foreign trade and blocking Iran’s access to financial resources overseas. He said the bans had adverse economic and financial effects on the country. Zarif also said Washington’s freezing of billions of dollars in Iranian assets amounts to QUOTE international theft. Under the JCPOA, the P5+1 agreed to ease restrictions on banking transactions with Iran. However, the U-S has not lived up to all of its obligations under the deal and a lot of large European banks refrain from engaging in transactions with Iran for fear of US sanctions.

I love Alex Schaefer impasto works depicting branches of Chase bank going up in flames in daytime. They were from a series by him called "Disaster Capitalism," and apparently the banks (and cops) would pretend he was planning acts of arson to try and make him stop painting. [via mutantspace , via Janie ] On July 30, 2011, Alex Schaefer set up an easel across the road from a Chase bank and began painting the building in flames. However, before he had finished the police arrived, asked him for his information and if he was planning on actually carrying out an arson attack on the building. Ridiculous. Later they turned up on his doorstep asking about his artwork and looking for any signs that he was going to carry through an anarchoterrorist plot based on his paintings. If this wasnt bad enough a year later he was arrested for drawing the wordcrime’ with a Chase logo in front of an LA bank.
