IMF: Banks Should Manage Perceptions

In part three of the IMF’s Global Financial Stability Report entitled Risk Taking By Banks: The Role of Governance and Executive Pay, the IMF implores banks to manage public perception of their excesses:

…conflicts of interest between bank managers, shareholders, and debt holders can lead to excessive bank risk taking from society’s point of view.

The operative clause in the above quote – “society’s point of view” – is the true concern, and the excessive risk taking is not directly addressed in the report. Instead, policies to “limit risk” are suggested, now, five years into the crisis.

That the IMF’s suggested policies have not been in place, as a banking sector standard, since the dawn of the modern financial era is clear.

The current crisis is a banking crisis. It is the doing of the banks and therefore their responsibility. By asking banks to at least create the impression of responsible behavior, here at the mouth of the spinning vortex, the IMF is preparing for the post-crisis fall-out when public commissions and inquiries will demand answers.

The sensible thing for individuals and businesses to do is to move their funds and banking to the Bitcoin blockchain. The sooner, the better. The start of a rally in the Bitcoin price and IMF warnings of a coming liquidity crisis in banking and shadow banking should be reason enough. Bitcoin’s design is based on sound principles of computer science and the blockchain is a disruptive innovation precisely because it represents the solution to the out-dated, ineffective and centralized banking model of finance.
