Transcript

  • 1. Peak Credit A Flight to Simplicity Chris Cook – BarCampBank London 5th July 2008
  • 2. What is a Bank anyway?
  • 3. It is a “Credit Institution”
  • 4. It creates Interest-bearing Credit (or “Debt”)
  • 5. … which is >97% of the Money we use
  • 6. Money created as interest-bearing loans……
  • 7. … is immediately deposited into the system
  • 8. A Bank is also a Credit Intermediary – or “Middleman” Bank Borrower Lender £ £
  • 9. … .but what does a Bank really do?
  • 10. A Bank guarantees borrowers’ credit…
  • 11. ......and charges “Interest” for their use of this Guarantee…
  • 12. … deducts from that the Interest paid to Depositors…
  • 13. … plus its operating costs and any defaults by borrowers..
  • 14. … and aims to make a profit…
  • 15. The Credit Pyramid Bank Credit Capital
  • 16. Demand for Credit has been high…
  • 17. … .from property buyers and investors..
  • 18. … from hedge funds and “Private Equity”..
  • 19. … .and Banks started to “outsource” their implicit Guarantee….
  • 20. … .“freeing up” and making best use of their Capital….
  • 21. … totally – by “securitising” debt and selling it to investors….
  • 22. … temporarily – using “Credit Derivatives”….
  • 23. … and partially – using “Monoline” credit insurers
  • 24. Result- a Bigger Credit Pyramid Investor Capital Credit Bank Capital
  • 25. … with Risk “Diced and Sliced”… Investor Capital Credit Bank Capital
  • 26. … so that no one knew where the risk lay…
  • 27. What is Credit anyway? ?
  • 28. Credit is an IOU and comes in two flavours…
  • 29. … .“Trade” Credit from a Seller to Buyer backed by Value….
  • 30. … .and Bank-created Credit supported by their Capital….
  • 31. Credit is “Deficit-based” finance
  • 32. … .essential for the creation of productive assets……
  • 33. … .such as buildings, wind turbines, and software……
  • 34. The problem comes when credit is created to buy existing assets……
  • 35. … .typically secured by a legal claim over the asset……
  • 36. … .resulting in “deficit-based” but “asset-backed” credit….
  • 37. … .such as loans secured against property (ie mortgages)….
  • 38. … .which are the source of over two thirds of dollars and sterling ever created…..
  • 39. … and therefore of asset price “Bubbles”….
  • 40. John Law created the first such Bubble in 1718
  • 41. … and they have never stopped since…
  • 42. … until last year we saw the culmination in the US of the “Mother of all Bubbles”….
  • 43. … since when Banks have been asking themselves….
  • 44. … is the risk with me?
  • 45. … .or with the hedge fund I dealt with?
  • 46. … and they are thinking….
  • 47. … .if this is what OUR balance sheet looks like…..
  • 48. … what does everyone else’s look like…..?
  • 49. So Banks now charge more for their implicit guarantees…..
  • 50. … .and are much more discriminating in relation to counterparty risk…..
  • 51. … .based upon the Capital they have left…
  • 52. … .so that “wholesale” lending to other banks has all but dried up…..
  • 53. … meanwhile investors have gone on strike
  • 54. … so securitisation and credit derivatives have dried up too….
  • 55. … while “monoline” credit insurers are also in deep trouble…….
  • 56. … so no Capital there either…
  • 57. The Result is that the pool of Capital supporting the credit pyramid….
  • 58. … ..has shrunk….. Capital Credit
  • 59. … interest rates set by Central Banks are irrelevant….
  • 60. … .and credit is both in short supply….
  • 61. … .and increasingly expensive….
  • 62. If Peak Credit is behind us….
  • 63. … what lies ahead….?
  • 64. I believe the answer is “Peer to Peer”…..
  • 65. … direct connection….
  • 66. … and ”dis-intermediation”….
  • 67. What does “Peer to Peer” Credit look like?
  • 68. Introducing the “Guarantee Society”
  • 69. “ Trade” credit is extended “peer to peer” when Seller gives Buyer “time to pay”….
  • 70. … credit is subject to a mutual guarantee….
  • 71. … through membership of a “community of interest”…….
  • 72. … which may be geographic in scope…
  • 73. … or functional, or both
  • 74. Credit is interest-free, but not cost-free…
  • 75. … .since provisions are made into a “default fund”…
  • 76. … .and system costs shared…
  • 77. … .by both sellers and buyers, since all benefit…
  • 78. … .and with the sellers agreement….
  • 79. … .settlement may be in money or in “money’s worth”….
  • 80. … .such as units of energy or property rental value….
  • 81. Banks no longer risk their capital….
  • 82. … creating credit based upon it…..
  • 83. … .but manage “peer to peer” credit creation…
  • 84. … as credit “service providers”
  • 85. “ Peer to Peer” Investment
  • 86. “ Equity” consists of “ownership” of property…
  • 87. … .“asset-based” rather than “deficit-based” finance
  • 88. The kind of “Equity” finance Capital we are used to…
  • 89. … is “stocks” or “shares” in a “Corporation”….
  • 90. … the “Joint Stock Limited Liability Company”….
  • 91. … which is what makes the “Private Sector” Private
  • 92. But while we have all been looking the other way….
  • 93. … at the financial revolution based upon credit innovation…
  • 94. … there have been interesting developments “under the radar”….
  • 95. … in “asset-based” finance.
  • 96. In Canada we have seen “Income Trusts”….
  • 97. … .where part of the gross Corporate revenues are “unitised”….
  • 98. … .and sold to long term investors…
  • 99. … .such as pension funds....
  • 100. … who love Income Trusts because…
  • 101. … they are getting their hands on corporate revenues….
  • 102. … . before the management does….
  • 103. … there are lots of other new ways to “invest” in assets…
  • 104. … such as “Exchange Traded Funds”…
  • 105. …“ Real Estate Investment Trusts”…
  • 106. … and not forgetting Islamic finance “Sukuks”
  • 107. “ You don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone”
  • 108. … and you don’t know what you haven’t got ‘til you see it
  • 109. … in 2001 the UK inadvertently made “the Corporation” redundant..
  • 110. … when they introduced the UK Limited Liability Partnership (“LLP”)
  • 111. An LLP can do anything a Corporation can do..
  • 112. … own property; enter into contracts etc….
  • 113. … and you can’t lose more than you put in..
  • 114. … .and.…errr….that’s it…..
  • 115. … there need not even be an agreement in writing…
  • 116. I call it an “Open Corporate”
  • 117. … .the US LLC is a close cousin…
  • 118. … and both make possible a “Capital Partnership”
  • 119. Introducing the Capital Partnership Capital Partnership Investors Users Revenues Managers % % Custodian Ownership
  • 120. … .property is held by a “Custodian”..… Capital Partnership Investors Users Revenues Managers % % Custodian Ownership
  • 121. … .and Investors put in money, or “money’s worth” Capital Partnership Investors Users Revenues Managers % % Custodian Ownership
  • 122. … .which Managers use to fulfil the agreed purpose… Capital Partnership Investors Users Revenues Managers % % Custodian Ownership
  • 123. … and revenue or production is shared…
  • 124. … ..within a consensually agreed framework
  • 125. The “Capital Partnership” enables new forms of Equity…
  • 126. … .proportional (%age) ”n’ths” such as billionths..
  • 127. … ..which may be bought and sold…
  • 128. … but never redeemed…
  • 129. … ..because there must always be 100%
  • 130. “ Units”, such as kilowatt hours
  • 131. … .or barrels of oil
  • 132. … .or the use of an acre for a year
  • 133. … which are redeemable..
  • 134. … and with a value in exchange…
  • 135. … but carry no rights to income…
  • 136. These hold their value…
  • 137. … because they are based on value..
  • 138. … and not a claim over value..
  • 139. … .issued by a “Credit Institution”
  • 140. So the possibility is there..….
  • 141. … to affordably refinance housing debt…
  • 142. … with simple new pools of land and property rentals…
  • 143. … to keep assets in public ownership..
  • 144. … but finance development by issuing non –redeemable “units” to investors…
  • 145. … .carrying a reasonable index-linked return
  • 146. The result could be a National Equity…
  • 147. … and a shrunken National Debt.
  • 148. This is not Rocket Science…
  • 149. … .but it is a Flight to Simplicity…
  • 150. … .which, as it happens, is Islamically sound…..
  • 151. When all is said and done
  • 152. …… maybe Ethical is Optimal?
