and since he was in the Bill Clinton Admin and helped paved the was (along with Robert Rubin) for the eleimation of Glass Steigal---which then allowed banks to gamble with deopistors money. And pushed thru the Commiodity Futures Modernization Act...which basically made instruments like CDSs and just about any derivation of that scheme that bankers could dream up...All of it KEPT IN DARK POOLS...basically Off the Books...

Among the proposals that deserve “serious reflection” is the purchase of a “wider range of assets on a sustained and continuing basis," Summers said in a lecture at a Bank of Japan conference in Tokyo Friday. "I’m not prepared to make a policy recommendation at this point,” he told reporters later.
Summers, who also served as a top economic adviser to President Barack Obama, reiterated his concerns about “secular stagnation,” where trend economic growth rates have been reduced and neutral interest rates are lower than historic norms. To the extent that low neutral rates are in part the consequence of investors preferring fixed-income assets and steering clear of riskier options, policy makers can combat that by buying risk assets, he said.
“There are obviously important political and economic questions associated with government ownership of companies,” Summers noted. Some critics could term such a policy as “socialism,” he said

NYT publishes Trumps 1995 Tax returns.
“Dean Baquet, the top editor at the New York Times, said he’d publish a story on Donald Trump’s taxes even if it means risking jail time,”. Bob Woodward also said he would go to jail too over it..
However: The New York Times paid no taxes and got an income tax refund of $3.5 million even though they had a pre-tax profit of $29.9 million in 2014.
On Meet The Press today Clinton Campaign Manager Mook Doubles Down.
Mook said, “I think a lot of the people that stand by Donald Trump are deplorable, and the things they say are deplorable.”
It's going to 11

It appears that there is a timetable/plan for the Conservative party to move -- PM May has set a "before the end of March" to trigger Art. 50 and will propose legislation to repeal EU sovereignty in UK // apparently Scotland will be dragged out as part of the deal -- might get messy but that's for later
The Party confab also seemed to put immigration control ahead of "soft Brexit" hopes

Friday's market session was about one thing: will Deutsche Bank stock close the week ahead of a three day holiday at a record low. It did not because, as we reported, the AFP announced that based on "sources" (most likely from Twitter), the DOJ was willing to reduce the $14 billion settlement that sent DB stock on a rollercoaster ride over the past two weeks, to just under $6 billion. The news unleashed a massive short squeeze relief rally, which sent DB stock soaring on Friday, pushing the entire market up 1%.
And while repeated attempts by the likes of Reuters to get additional information from either the DOJ, the German government or Deutsche Bank itself, have proven fruitless, overnight Frankfurter Allegemeine Zeitung reported that Deutsche Bank executives are heading to the United States in the coming days to negotiate the $14 billion settlement over a fine the infamous $14 billion for misselling RMBS.
In other words, not only was the $5.6 billion "agreed upon" number, as "reported" by Twitter and then AFP, bogus, but the actual negotiations have not yet even begun.

- Concern over the fate of Deutsche Bank eased as the day wore on Friday following an uncorroborated press report that the DOJ was in negotiations to reduce its fine to the for the mortgage-backed bond crisis to $5.4bln.
- This turmoil was triggered by powerful unelected (appointed) U.S. officials who clearly are out of touch with the consequences of their actions. Sound familiar? Do you think the EU Commission will take note? Personally I doubt it.
- Monday sees the start of the final quarter of the year. The first trading day of the month sees the release of global PMI indices which provide a useful current read on many economies via admmitedly "soft data".
- Trading should also be subdued due to the Jewish New Year and local holidays in China and Germany.
