Ex-AMD CEO, Like Top IBM Guy, Source of Insider Information: Reports

Hector Ruiz (pictured), then CEO of AMD, was the unidentified source of material information that the busted Galleon ring traded on, according to the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg. He’s even higher up the totem pole than Robert Moffat, the head of IBM servers and storage who was arrested and charged on October 16 along with five other co-conspirators in what the government called the biggest case of insider trading involving a hedge fund in history. For days now the press corps has been leaning on their sources trying to prove the hypothesis that Ruiz was the uncharged AMD insider described by the government in its criminal and civil indictments as the executive who’s “been preaching this deal for so long,” meaning AMD’s spin-off of its fabs and frankly there weren’t too many of those – that’s where the hypothesis came from. The Wall Street Journal identified R... (more)

Marginal utility value of a used cars is seldom given d... (more)

Richmond Fed's Economic Quarterly Features New Thoughts on Too-Big-to-Fail Banking Policy

RICHMOND, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/31/05 -- Bank Risk of Failure and the Too-Big-to-Fail Policy. The possibility that large banks may have access to contingent government bailouts creates a risk and a size distortion in their decisions: banks tend to become riskier and larger, asserts Richmond Fed economist Huberto M. Ennis and research associate H. M. Malek. While the cost of the too-big-to-fail distortions could be high, the available evidence of their importance in the U.S. economy is inconclusive. Any proposal for policy reform should weigh this empirical limitation, according to the article. Also in the Spring 2005 issue: Equilibrium Models of Personal Bankruptcy: A Survey. A growing literature analyzing the default of household debt through bankruptcy harbors three lessons, observes Richmond Fed economist Kartik Athreya. First, for bankruptcy to be welfare-im...

IBM Fires Exec Implicated in Insider Trading Scandal

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 IBM has cut its ties with Robert Moffat, the senior VP who ran its server, storage and chips businesses and was arrested two weeks ago for allegedly whispering insider information on IBM and Sun financial results as well as AMD's reorganization plans to hedge funds that traded on the material information.
