OCC Calls for Papers Commemorating 150 Years of the National Banking System

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced a call for proposals for papers on the history of the OCC, the national banking system, bank and thrift regulation and supervision, and related topics. The OCC and the national banking system were created by the National Currency Act of 1863.

An interdisciplinary panel of OCC experts will evaluate proposals for originality and relevance to the history of the OCC, the national banking system, bank and thrift regulation and supervision, and related topics. At the end of the anniversary year, papers will be compiled and published as a book. Authors may also be invited to deliver oral presentations of their papers to local OCC audiences at events during the anniversary year.

Authors should hold an advanced degree in one or more of the following fields: history, economics, political science, public policy, or law. Proposals must be accompanied by a curriculum vita as well as a detailed summary of the topic, stating a thesis and examples of the sources to be used.

The deadline for proposals is May 11, 2012. The OCC will notify authors of its decision by June 30, 2012. Completed papers will be due by May 30, 2013.

For more information, contact OCC Historian Jesse Stiller at historian@occ.treas.gov.

    Follow the money and you will find the banks NEVER LENT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE A DIME AT ANY POINT IN OUR HISTORY…….The truth is in fact, quite the opposite of what we were all told to believe. The truth is the banks hijacked the U.S. TREASURY DEPT..and THE PEOPLES MONEY…RIGHT AROUND THE CREATION OF THE FED BY TRAITORS IN CONGRESS IN 1914..! BECA– USE ROBBING US VIA TAXES WAS NOT ENOUGHT….THE CREATION OF THE FED GAVE THE BANKS A DIRECT PIPELINE TO THE U.S. TREASURY DEPT. AND THE BANKS HAVE BEEN ROBBING US BLIND FOR DECADES…!!! The only difference between this manufactured depression and the last one is…THIS TIME THEY SOLD INTERESTS IN NOTHING…EXPONENTIONALLY TO MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE..! THEIR MASSIVE DEBT IS AROUND A QUADRILLION DOLLARS IN UNSUSTAINABLE DEBT FRAUD…AND CAN NEVER BE REPAID…!! THE BANKS AND WALL STREET MADE GAGILLIONS OFF OF THE FULL FAITH AND CONFIDENCE OF THE U.S. TAXPAYERS AND PROMISED THAT THE DEBTS OF THE BANKS AND WALL STREETS WOULD BE PAID BACK BY WE THE PEOPLE…..! LIARS LOANS WERE ONLY MADE TO BLAME THE VICTIMS…AND ONLY COMPRISED 20% OF THE “LOANS” …THE LIARS LOANS DID NOT POSE ENOUGH RISK TO COLLAPSE THE WORLD ECONOMY…AND THE LIARS LOANS GAVE THEM MORE ACCESS TO THE U.S. TAXPAYERS MONEY AT THE U.S. TREASURY DEPT…!!

    Ed DeMarco, head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency — which oversees Fannie and Freddie — has stood in the way of (principal) reductions and he’s claimed the support of Fannie and Freddie. But that’s no longer the case. Even Fannie and Freddie now support principal reductions. It’s time for Ed DeMarco to step aside by signing this Whte House petition:

    Paper? 1-ply or 3-ply? I hope it will be soft enough so we can not injured our a****.

    The John Dugan era, and some years before are critical. This era clearly exposes this Bank Agency as a key lobbyist and legislator (yes they don’t legislate themselves) for TBTF. The OCC represents total regulatory capture by Wall Street. Dugan has yet to be more than written about as a major player in the entire bubble. I’d suggest that lawyers should lose their licenses if their conduct is shown to bring damage to so many people.

    I can’t wait to see what William Black and Randall Wray have to say about this one. They crooks really do live in a bubble. I am also waiting for the bubble to burst.
