Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk[edit]

was Category:Systemic Risk - Behavioral & Social Facets

  • I'm the original author of two category pages
    • Category:Systemic risk This has a related article page Systemic risk that I did not author but could use updating. There may also be key Wikipedia pages that could be tagged with this category. Help from ASIA would be really nice!!!
    • Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk I did not write an article page on this but would participate in a group to write one. See the talk page for more. This is bleeding edge research - 10 toes over the front of the surfboard type stuff. However its very real and have found at least one initial survey article (top quality in a heavily refereed journal) so its undeniably legitimate. Would love help here!!!

The "usury" article needs help putting links to other articles[edit]

I was surprised there is not more interlinking with other articles on the topic of the 2008 financial crisis, how money is created, quantitive easing, buffers that banks need to have in relation to the loans they can write out, how consumers and society is protected from irresponsible behaviour from bankers.

Scoreboard article for the 2008 financial crisis bailout?[edit]

Is there something like this on the wikipedia? :

"The Bailout Scorecard

Last update: Apr. 20, 2015

Altogether, accounting for both the TARP and the Fannie and Freddie bailout, $615B has gone out the door—invested, loaned, or paid out—while $390B has been returned.

The Treasury has been earning a return on most of the money invested or loaned. So far, it has earned $280B. When those revenues are taken into account, the government has realized a $55.1B profit as of Apr. 20, 2015." https://projects.propublica.org/bailout/ - It shows what bank or organisation received how much it received, in what form etc, how much it has paid back in interest to the state, how much in dividents if the state became a share-holder, etc. ProPublica was a recipient of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in National Reporting and a 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Investigative Reporting.

@SvenAERTS: Very interesting question: I wasn't aware of that research. Do you propose to create an article about ProPublica's scorecard, or do you want Wikipedia to make its own scorecard?
The long table in the Participants section of the Troubled Asset Relief Program article looks like a kind of scorecard. (I noticed that 2009 ProPublica research is used as a source for the long table. Does that need updating?)
Here are two other relevant articles:
