The bank tax

The bank tax

Since the outbreak of the financial crisis in 2007, there is growing global support for the taxation of banks. Using this "bank tax" during the crisis, banks can repay government obtained. Furthermore, such a measure would ensure that a future crisis governments, but the banks themselves may provide any necessary capital injections. Moreover, such a tax the global financial system more stable and less prone to aggressive investment strategies to make.

There is much debate surrounding the introduction of a bank fee. Besides the pros and cons, there is the question at which level the tax should be applied. Within the EU, France, Hungary, Austria, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Sweden have already introduced tax individually. During his annual "state of the union" on September 28, 2011 urged President Barroso of the European Commission to introduce the bank tax on a European level.

At the end of October 2011 summit, where an agreement was reached on the approach of the European debt crisis, has decided to legislate for a tax on financial transactions

European financial guardians

These are the European Systemic risks (ESRB) and the European System of Financial Supervisors (ESFS) has become. These two new regulators took over the duties of three existing advisory bodies, namely the Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS), Committee of European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Supervisors (CEIOPS) and Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR).

The tasks of the ESRB and ESFS consists of:

•    proposing technical standards, paying attention to the principles of better regulation;

•    Resolving disagreements between national supervisors if warranted by law to cooperate or to agree;

•    Contributing to a good technical implementation of common rules (including through peer reviews);

•    Exercising direct supervision with regard to credit rating by the European Securities and Markets;

•    Fulfilling a coordinating role in emergency situations.

The above measures stemmed from the idea that improved financial supervision of the European economy from the consequences of a future economic crisis.

The number of supervisors was in September 2010 expanded by a further three supervisory authorities, namely the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Securities and Markets (ESMA) and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions (EIOPA). These three financial supervisors by January 1, 2011 went to work.

European supervision tightened

In mid-2009 the European Commission submitted a proposal for European legislation for increased monitoring of banks in Europe. The most important point in this proposal was the creation of a European System of Financial Supervisors. European System of Financial Supervisors aims to enhance cooperation between financial authorities in the European Union more smoothly.

Under pressure from the European Parliament, the finance ministers of EU countries on July 13, 2010 also approved the establishment of European regulators. These regulators monitor financial institutions and if necessary take action against banks and insurance companies. These regulators intervene when national regulators disagree with each other on a cross-border bank or insurer.

Economic crisis in international perspective

On November 15, 2008 a summit was held in Washington, the twenty most powerful economies place. During the encounter participating countries discussed how the global economic crisis could be tackled effectively. This process yielded six points forward.

•    Tax havens were taboo and accounting standards should be harmonize

•    There was an international code of conduct that affect the current 'culture of greed "would counteract

•    There was more and more supervisors in the global banking sector

•    It had to prevent protectionist countries that take measures to protect their own industry

The countries were not to have a joint plan for tax incentives.

In April 2009 the G20 was together in London. During this meeting it was decided to triple the IMF resources. Dominique Strauss-Kahn former head of the IMF, so that the IMF would be back on the map. In addition, 180 billion for new commercial appropriations.

Economic recovery

Late November 2008 the European Commission decided to launch a European Economic Recovery Program. By a capital injection of 200 billion euros the European economy had a positive boost. By including more tax measures, road construction and expansion of the European Internet facilities, the Commission hoped the demand for goods and services increasing. This way the chance of a prolonged recession was reduced. Each Member State was expected to at least 1.5 percent of its gross domestic product, economic incentives stabbing.

Also, a large portion of the budget for 2010 to consolidate the European economy is back on their feet. Job creation and competitiveness of the European Union in the arena were thereto important.

EU Budget Rules

European fiscal rules, which include a deficit of up to three percent of gross domestic product is allowed, were maintained. However, the Commission wanted to flexibly apply this rule. In violation of the three-percent standard, Member States must ensure as soon as possible to get below this limit.

Tackling the economic crisis

In view of these developments a European response could not stay out. In October 2008 the European Union finance ministers reached an agreement in principle on set up a savings guarantee for an amount of at least 50,000 euros per account holder. Netherlands raised the guarantee even up to 100,000 euros. This was intended to prevent people from their money en masse shots for fear of otherwise losing their savings, like what happened in America.

The jammed financial transactions between banks decided to stimulate the fifteen countries of the Eurozone in the above mentioned agreement in principle also to guarantee loans between banks. They also wanted "healthy" banks if desired financial support through loans, to get more Europeans to give confidence in the economy.

The money was used to allow banks to financially support came from the national governments. For some countries, this economic burden was too heavy. After Iceland ($ 8.1 billion) and Ukraine ($ 16.5 billion) at the end of October 2008 Hungary became the first EU country financial assistance to the economic crisis may be encountered. The International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the World Bank jointly provided a loan of 20 billion euros.

The beginning of the economic recession in Europe.

In this part of my blog I will tell you what happened when the economic recession struck in europe.

In November 2008, the economics talked for the first time of a recession in the euro zone. In the fourth quarter of 2008, the European economy shrank by an average of 1.2 percent in the first quarter of 2009, even with 2.8 percent. Especially the new members of the European union had a hard hit by the downturn in the global economy. Slovakia, Latvia and Lithuania showed an economic contraction seen any instance of more than 10 percent. The unemployment rate in the European Union was still increasing.
As in the United States also a number of large banks came in deep trouble in. As a result of fear on the international capital market worldwide banks held the hand on the purse. This meant that banks no longer provided loans, not to consumers and not to each other. Major banks such as UBS and the Dutch ING members had to record losses and government support are held up. The British bank Northern Rock, the Icelandic Landsbanki, the Belgian-Dutch Fortis, the Dutch bank ABN AMRO were nationalized altogether.

How it all started! Part 2

This next part of my blog is a continuation of How it all started! Part 1

When the payment for the interest and the repayment of their initial loan came they again didn´t had enough money. So the banks looked at the current value of the houses but the value of the houses went down. So eventually the loaners had a to high mortgages on their house which they couldn’t afford, the banks didn’t get their money from the loaners because they didn’t had any. And from this point the value of the houses are getting lower and lower. The banks had to send the loaners out of their houses because they couldn’t pay it. The banks didn’t had much money because they own so much houses and since the price of all the houses are getting lower and lower the banks are getting poorer. When this all happened all the people in America didn’t trust their money with the banks so they all took their money away from the banks. This is the point when one bank after a other went bankrupt. The economy in America went really bad and they got into a recession. Since the economy in  America went so bad the trade with other countries slowed down. And then the bad economy started in Europe.This image show (left) perecentage of defaulters

How it all started! Part 1

The banking crisis started in the United States of America. All the banks in America gave mortgages for houses to people that couldn't really afford it. So when those loaners had to pay their interest and the repayment of their initial loan, they didn't had enough money for it. So what did the bank do? The bank looked at the value of the house at that time, since the value of the house has gone up the bank gave the loaners a higher mortgages so that they could pay their interest and the repayment of their initial loan. This went good for some months but then the same thing happened. The loaners had not enough money to pay their mortgages because they have been spending almost all of their money on flat screen tv’s and other stuff for in the house. And again the banks looked at the current value of the houses and gave the loaners a higher mortgages. So the loaners got more money, the mortgages are higher and also de interest and the repayment of the initial loan is higher. The loaners were spending all of their money again on PlayStation’s new cars etc.

In my next blog i will finish this story!
