Vikram Pandit Is Waiting By The Phone

The New York bank reported third quarter earnings rose 74 percent in the third quarter, to $3.8 billion, due to lower losses from loans and an accounting gain. Its international consumer lending business grew in Asia and Latin America. The bank also decided to keep its credit card partnership with retailers as that business improved…Last week Vikram Pandit, CEO of Citigroup, said he understands the sentiments of the protesters and was willing to meet with them. Citi spokesman Edward Skyler said no one had reached out from the organizers to talk with Pandit yet. [AP, earlier]

    Hey, Vikram, can you give me a ring on that CVA trick? I'm thinking that we can definitely get Greece to a budget surplus using that technique!

    We are only protesting relevant banks only, and of course BofA just because it's easy.

    OWS: Occupying Wet Shits

    So why are you camped outside of Brown Brothers Harriman then?!?

    Occupy Wall Street is very significant, if only for showing how "fringe" movements can quickly move to the fore of national dialogue. We'd be well advised to keep an eye on another national movement that has even more potential to directly target the big U.S. banks: http://bit.ly/pVu04R

    If there's one thing OWS has shown, it's how "fringe" movements like Move Your Money or Bank Transfer Day have the potential to develop huge momentum. Banks would be wise to pay attention: http://bit.ly/pVu04R
