Blythe Masters' Crowning Achievement: The Credit Default Swap

Tyler Durden's picture


As reported earlier, JPM's head commodity maven, Blythe Masters (her very rare public appearance can be seen here) suddenly finds herself in hot water for, among other things, allegedly lying under oath, obstructing justice and "engaging in a systematic cover up" to "approve schemes" seeking to defraud the states of California and Michigan in electricity trading (Enron flashbacks are more than welcome). So just who is Blythe? Most people on this site should be very familiar with her work by now (the NYT has a good recap), so instead of reconnecting the dots, we will once again dig up the presentation by one very young Ms. Master, introducing her then quite innovative product: the Credit Default Swap, titled appropriately enough "The J.P.Morgan Guide To Credit Derivatives" (by Blythe Masters). Because it is always best to let one's work speak.

She'll be our next president with a promising resume like that.

Nobody of Blythe's stature from the Morgue is gonna be tried, imprisoned or subjected to permanent damage.  Maybe some of her charges down the rat-hole at the lower levels of the food chain... but nobody like Blythe. 
Hell, if they do that they might as well go for Jamie and revoke the bank's charter... which the PlaceHolder has officially said Is Not Gonna Fucking Happen.
Nor will Congress Let it Happen....
Too much money at stake.
Way too much money....

It is all Blythe's fault.

Certainly not the banking oligarchs.

They need to hang her high.

Just like in the 1930s when FDR said that the 1929 crash and subsequent depresson was caused by "a few bad apples" requiring new financial regulation (hell, it wasn't the Fed & the Bank of England), Blythe will be fingered, Eric "fast and furious" & "too big to jail" Holder will propose new regulations, and everyone will go home happy that they've caught the perp in silver and gold manipulation.

I love Blythe, she's always reminded me of Faye Dunaway's character in 'Network.' Will be interesting to watch if this whole lying-under-oath thing actually gets her in trouble.

Hell, the Federalies (We don't need no stinkin' badges*) already knew about Madoff.  It was he who turned himself in for all intents and purposes and they were thus forced to do something to Cover Their Asses to make like enforcing the law... Plus looked good.. like they were enforcing the law.

My guess is Kamala Harris will find Blythe to be too pretty and so will file charges against her.

I find it interesting that the name itself, "Credit DEFAULT Swap", is associated with this manipulative lady.  "Credit" because there is no viable equity market, "default" because appreciation is done and only losses will be realized, and "swap" because banksters can't skim on the transaction unless there is churn.

As stated, she deserves ZERO respect for the global financial damage she has inflicted on billions in the name of personal bonuses and corporate profits.

One day she'll get what's coming to her.

From linked comments by Blythe:

"As i mentioned earlier, our business is a client-driven business where we execute on behalf of clients..."

Yes my Dear, you do execute your clients, and their assets.

BTW - Oscar the Grouch says you're full of it.
