Where do America’s biggest banks make their money?

Most people know the traditional banking model, if only from George Bailey in It’s A Wonderful Life 다운로드.

In simplified form: A bank takes deposits from savers, and pays them a low interest rate. Then it lends that money out to borrowers at a higher interest rate 다운로드. The bank’s profits come from the difference between the rates.

 

Charming…but far from the truth for the modern bank 카 2006 다운로드. An article from NPR’s Planet Money looked into JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in America, and found they do much more than that 다운로드.

The two most important ‘extra’ activities are charging fees and the outright investing of their own money. Here is how it breaks down:

  • $48 billion – interest from loans
  • $35 billion – fees
  • $11.5 billion – trading

A little less than half of the bank’s revenue comes from non-traditional banking activities (fees, trading) 다운로드. Not so bad, especially with trading accounting for so little. Remember, one of the root causes of the financial crisis was all the big banks exploding their trading 다운로드. When the market collapsed so did they, but were “too big to fail” and we had to bail them out.

Suffice it to say that banking with deposits and loans is very hard (George Bailey nearly went under), add in too much trading and banks become very unstable 다운로드.

YouTube a major platform for news – says new Pew report

According to a new report from the Pew Research Center, “YouTube is becoming a major platform for viewing news.”

By far, the incident that sparked the most interest was the Japan earthquake and tsunami 다운로드. Pew looked at the most popular videos in the “news & politics” section of YouTube over those 15 months and found that 5 percent of the 260 videos related to the Japanese disaster 레이븐필드.

Given that 70 percent of YouTube traffic comes from outside the U.S., it’s not surprising that the top three news videos were related to non-U.S 다운로드. events. After the earthquake/tsunami, the Russian elections and the unrest in the Middle East topped news-related video views, Pew said.

Natural disasters and political upheavals were the most popular news video topics 다운로드. People did not figure prominently; “No one individual was featured in even 5 percent of the most popular videos studied here-and fully 65 percent did not feature any individual at all,” Pew found 영화 태풍 다운로드. President Obama, however, was featured in 4 percent of the top videos worldwide, in posts that ranged from speeches to campaign ads from opponents.

As Pew noted, the growth of news videos on YouTube has been a help and a hindrance to traditional news outlets…

Get notified when Google Maps updates the satellite imagery for your house

“Love this tip from +Jake Parrillo – I had no idea you could get notified when there was new satellite imagery for your house 킹스맨 유료 다운로드. Living in the future is pretty great.” – Rick Klau

 

The full story from Jake:

Last night, I received an email from the “Follow Your World” application of Google Maps that alerted me that there was new imagery for a “point of interest” of mine 다운로드.  Sure enough, I had entered our home address in the tool back when it launched in October of last year and forgot all about it.

The new satellite images are pretty recent – as there’s a new house being constructed on our block and the image has the roof shingles installed and the driveway in; which are both pretty recent events (within the last month or so) 꽃보다 청춘.

The Follow Your World tool is a neat little app that gives you a heads up when Google updates their imagery of your house.  We’re still not on StreetView (our block) so I’m hoping that one day soon, a note like the one above will arrive that will include the details of how our house is now included in the StreetView collection 봄의왈츠.
