2023.06.07 10:31 IGoRose Nothing in this game or any warrants a death threat

I was teaching a friend of mine GoTD earlier since he hadn’t run it yet due to being busy with other things. We clear the first encounter as a duo then make our way to the first boss. We decide to grab a 3rd, so I hop on the Xbox LFG to grab another player. I make sure to include within the post: KWTD or join the party as I’m willing to teach.
I invite the first guy who’s interested in the post and claims he KWTD so I invite him to the game and send a party invite, which he doesn’t join so I assumed he’d be fine. What followed was this guy continuously banking his vestige of light in the wrong rune and ultimately causing us to wipe 2 times before I decided to just kick him and find someone else. He responded to this by sending my friend and I multiple slurs and death threats for the next 20 minutes. I felt really bad as this was my friend’s 2nd time ever trying out a dungeon and this was what they had to deal with.
As a community we should be helping each other out, not tearing one another down.

2023.06.07 10:25 Dynasty__93 How would you interpret a conversation I had with a city cop?

So I am sure many will read the title but not the body. I will say I have my opinions of cops, prisons, etc and it is mostly a progressive view but not entirely. I believe the entire United States has a lot of roots still tied to slavery and segregation. To look at the big picture we have made slavery and segregation illegal on paper but we just hoped over time the reproductions of slavery and segregation would go away... And they have not. Black people make up approximately 12% of the US population is black. Yet nowhere near 12% of large corporate CEOs or founders are black. So I get that the entire system is still rigged against racial minorities.
Now on to my recent conversation with a cop. I will just summarize by saying I asked their opinion of the social unrest in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd. They quickly answered what happened to Floyd was a murder, the cops deserve the prison time they got, but that did not like they did not like having to work 14 hour shifts 7 days in a row during social unrest in their city cop job because of people looting, along with people throwing bricks at the cops. Mind you this cop is a city cop in a city in the east coast. In their exact words they said people should be more upset with not law enforcement but instead be upset with the people who maintain the status quo: Politicians, CEOs of corporations, banks, etc. In their view the ideas that became popular in 2020 like defunding the police are things the white supremacists, the ultra rich, etc all want because that means less cops, which will then lead to more crime and will disproportionately affect the poor, minorities, etc.
So basically this cop gave me some perspective. They are a friend of a friend I met in college and just casually did a 10 minute FaceTime with them. They said they fear not enough people will want to go into law enforcement because the news reports every time a cop does or does not do something wrong. For example they explained that the chief of their city has said but not put in writing to not pull people over for traffic violations. This eventually gets discovered and speeding/street racing/etc rise and leads to injuries = People then get up and arms about "where are the cops"? At the end they summarized their beliefs with an example from 2021 where they responded to a person breaking into someone's car parked on the street at night. A lady called it in because it was her SUV that got the window broken, and the thieves stole her AirPods from the center console. It took this cop 9 minutes to get there because of critical vacancies and when they got to the residence the woman was yelling it took so long... The icing on the cake in their opinion was that she had a "defund the police" bumper sticker on her car. Their last comment to me was that prior to George Floyd's murder police departments were already running short staffed. Many cops quit within the month of the Floyd murder and now mandatory overtime is constant.
How would you interpret what this cop said? It definitely gave me some perspective and I agree mostly that people throwing things at police during protests is wrong. I do completely agree that a lot of people who want to defund the police seem to just give a pass to corporations, the judges, politicians, etc who are the ones who delegate funds/actually make the laws to keep institutional racism going. Cops are needed because even in a clean, progressive, educated society there will still be home invasions, carjackings and murders. I myself will close by saying that there are probably few jobs out there that suck as much as being a cop. You are hated by many people on the left because they think you are a pig, a racist, etc. You are hated by many on the right, just for different reasons. Take a look at January 6 and how the Trump GQP assholes treated capitol police.

2023.06.07 10:21 Nearby_Ear2169 Risky or smart move?

My partner (23F) and I (23M) are imminently about to sign a building contract for a 530k house in WA. We have ~50k in savings and only need 5% for our deposit (26.5k) as we are taking advantage of the first home guarantee scheme. As it is a construction loan it is a variable loan. The bank has offered us a loan of 505k at an initial variable interest rate of 5.75%.
I am currently working full time on a salary of 80k per annum. However, my partner is finishing med school this year and should be starting full time work next year on approx 80-90k (including overtime), if everything goes to plan. Apart from her HECs debt, neither of us have personal loans or credit card debt. We are not currently renting and live at home. Whilst we are waiting for our house to build we should be able to save around 50k a year. We plan to pay interest only repayments for the first two years. We envision that this house will not be our forever home and eventually an investment. Does this sound too risky?

2023.06.07 10:12 Frolicking-Fox B of A wouldn't cash my check because of low account balance.

I realize this is a small subreddit, but I don't really know where to post.
I've been with Bank of America since the late 90's.
In all honesty, I fucking hate the bank. I've lived through them itemizing transactions according to amount, instead of date, so they could maximize the NSF charges to my account, all the way to when I found out they recycled account numbers and allowed a person with checks from the 80's with my recycled account number, but a different name, cash the checks and run my account to -$3500.
I hate them, but they have locations all over the US, so I use it for convince.
Yesterday, I went to B of A to cash a payroll check. I wanted to cash some, and deposit the rest. Teller says I can only cash it, and if I want to deposit, I have to take the cash and put it into the ATM.
OK, whatever, I can do that.
I put my card in, and enter my PIN so I can cash it.
The Teller sees my account balance, and then gives me the check back saying she can't cash it because I don't have enough funds in my account to cover the check if it bounces.
This is a payroll check from my work, on an account that has been owned by me since the late 90's.
I mean, I get trying to dissuade fraudulent checks, but seriously? They won't cash a payroll check from an account that is over 25 years old?
What happened to make this shit bank so much worse?

2023.06.07 10:10 Nearby_Magazine_7423 Carelessness by MG Dealership

Our car was booked in 2021 end. And it was delivered in mid 2022. Because of delay in delivery, they offered gifts to those cutomers who had booked their cars before 2022. And we contacted our nearest dealership and chose a specific gift. It was basically an accessory: car refrigerator. It costs around 27k if u buy it directly from MG. But we were supposed to receive it for free. And they kept delaying it for over a year and asked us to write an e-mail to MG regarding it. They suggested the e-mail idea very late and we too didn't pay much attention to it. They always gave an explanation that the refrigerator was available at some other dealership in our state. And we recently visited that particular dealership which was supposed to prvide the refrigerator. They told us that the offer has expired and since we didn't write any e-mail, we can't avail it. Imo it was their fault since they kept delaying it for a year. And now they're pushing the blame on us. What's the logic of an offer expiring if it's supposed to be for a limited number of people?

2023.06.07 10:05 SAMiAM4490 Manic bipolar brother with a gambling addiction is reeking havoc. Broke into house, stole checks, threatened family. Cops and bank won't take action.

My boyfriend's (33) brother (35) has been reeking havoc for the past few months. We are at a loss as to how to tackle the issue legally to get his family peace and his brother help. The initial incident occurred in 2020 when he was placed on a 5150 hold after taking too many psychedelics. He was diagnosed with Bipolar II while in treatment. He was taking his Antipsychotic meds until a few months ago. Since then he has quit his job, started gambling again, goes days without sleeping, runs around partying and doing drugs, has threatened family and friends, stolen tens of thousands of dollars, broken into houses and damaged property. We have offered to get him help in various ways but he is adament that he does not want anyone "controlling him."
The family consists of Mom (67), Dad (81), and the brothers: Tim (33), Sam (35), and Ron (37).
Sam has a gambling addiction and has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past 3 years. Last year Sam came to the family asking for assistance to pay off an $80k debt. Tim agreed to wire Sam the money if Sam signed the title of his house over to a trust controlled by Mom and Dad. Sam agreed. Right now the mortgage is in Tim and Sam's name. Sam has not made a mortgage payments in years. The payments have been made by Tim and their parents. There is a lease agreement for the house between Mom and Tim.
Last week Sam came to the house where Mom, Dad, and Ron live. He broke items around the house, attacked Mom, stole money orders made out to Dad's business, along with some blank checks. Sam wrote himself a $22k check, signed Dad's name, and cashed it. Dad is the primary on the account and Ron is the signatory. Ron called US Bank to report the forged check. US Bank said they needed the primary (Dad) to submit a police report before they could do anything. Dad is in his 80s and does not want to get involved. Is there a way for us to handle this on behalf of Dad?
Today Sam came to the house Tim lives and broke the front door to gain entry. Tim called the cops but they did not arrest or take a report. Tim, Ron, and Mom all begged the cops to remove Sam and that they felt unsafe. The officer told them to work it out as a family and that it is a civil suit. The officer did recommend a restrainer order which Mom and Tim are planning on requesting tomorrow. Sam is currently in the house that he is not longer on the title of nor has lease for and Tim is staying with me.
There are numerous other instances of Sam threatening harm and stealing from family and friends. These are just the most recent highlights. There are close to 10 people, including myself, who are ready to make a statement/file a police report. Sam's harassment and desperation for money are escalating and we feel like the support from law enforcement is dwindling. The entire family has been living in fear for years but I'm most concerned for Mom and Dad, who are both elderly.
Mom and Tim are going to the police station tomorrow to file a request for a restraining order. Is there a better option to get Sam out of the house and/or to leave the family alone? Have there been any crimes committed or is this all civil? Is there any action we can take in regards to the forged check on behalf of the primary account holder?
We are in Orange County, California. I can provide more information, if needed.

2023.06.07 09:50 LawbirdBringer A new home, an introduction

So, I'm feeling an itch to try and do another crossover, this time with Frostpunk of all things. Thus, I am gonna try it. However I must state some thing. In this universe, as the date Frostpunk is set in. Or at least, The scenario "A new home" is happening in. Is somewhere during 1886 to 87. And the invention of the Nukes are during 1933. So for all intents and purposes, The Federation never stumbled upon humanity. At least, in a way they stumble upon them so much earlier than they should. This way, the feds never had a reason to exterminate the species in the first place. They didn't know they existed.
In terms of things regarding the Laws of New London. In this story, both Order and Faith are mixed together. The laws leading to Faith Keepers and The Temple are signed as well as the laws leading to Patrols and Foremen. As for Adaptation laws. Child Labor, Extended Shift, Soup, Extra rations for the Ill, Prosthetics, Ceremonial funerals, Public house. Nearly everything is researched.

For the purpose of the City, they haven't crossed the Line yet. But as any who played the game knows. The other side of the Line is so tempting. So very, very tempting.

Memory Transcript: Felix Hawthorn - Captain, leader of the last City
Date: [standardized human time]: Day 47
I can no longer see the lights out there. The Little fires and candles that lit up the city. The houses are all but covered in ice. The automatons are barely managing to work through the frigid winds. I turn to check the thermometer, even in my office. Built at the base of the Generator. The winds could reach me through the cracks in the walls. I blinked the ice out of my eyes as my vision locks with the thermometer. "Negative... 150 degrees..." I croaked out. Speaking aloud as I slowly turned to face the cloak on the wall.
To my bewilderment, and amazement. It was still turning away. Even when frost threatened to break it. Just a few more hours... just a few more...
I weakly lifted my arm, If I survive. It'll need amputating. I couldn't even feel the burning cold that was coating its' senses yesterday.
No guardsmen, Faith Keeper, or anyone has came to alert me to anything new... The infirmaries were the only buildings with enough warmth for people to at the very least. Feel chilly... Heh... "Should probably go to one..." I shiver at I felt Jack Frost threaten to tear my insides apart, speaking my thoughts won't help much... thinking things out will keep me focused...
I can't go to a Infirmary. We have no space for a new one to be built, nor do we have enough space for everyone... Thus, here I sit. In my chair. Watching the frost grow on my windows... I pray to myself, that whoever plunged us in this Frozen Hell. Would have mercy on the children and the elderly
As the glass in my window gets overgrown in ice and snow, I slowly close my eyes. And lay back. If this is the end of the human race as we know it... I rather sleep through it than see the results. I already wrote down notes so whomever finds me, will know what to do.
Sleep takes me, the frost won't win that battle at least. In the realms of Dreams. I'm sitting under the warm sun, my daughter and son playing in the grass not too far from me. My wife and I play a game, pointing out the different shapes the clouds made in the sky...

There is a pirate ship... a bird... that's a whale... "No, silly. That's a dolphin!" she'd laugh, I would respond with a chortle and a "Well, when you're right, you're right."
Such warmth... It's not even that warm in actuality, it is as average a day as any other... but I feel so... warm.
Memory Transcript: Jannim, Junior Venlil explorer
Date: [standardized human time]: Day 47
I shivered as the ship struggles to handle the temperature of this planet. Of course, sometimes a explorer will never come back. Be it through running into Predators, a error in the systems. Or just bad luck. But I never thought it would happen to me.
I boot up the terminal, thankful it still worked at least. "Explorer Log 21. Jannim. Horkle, our exterminator. Succumbed to the wounds he sustained during the crash. Day 7 after the crash, our pilot, Thalk and captain Fonn still haven't came in from checking on the damages the ship sustained when the storm hit us. Should've left when we noticed it but no... we just had to be heroes to a race we don't even know how to find." I panted as I glanced to the ships' walls. Thanks to the ship I'm alive, but how long will the power last? If Fonn and Thalk were still alive out there... I took a deep breath and continue the log "The captain and pilot left the ship sometime yesterday, to check on external damages and on the engines.-" A growl from the predator-like winds stole my attention away.
You survived a Arxur raid, and this is how you go out? Fearing for your life because of alien nature?
Yes, I was...

I take a bite out of my emergency rations, the blandness of it was much better than the chill in the air. "-I-if anyone finds this, leave this planet. Don't go looking for the natives, LEAVE. Before the scans broke down, it appears the planet is gonna undergo various storms similar to the one I am in. Leave at once and mark the planet down as a Deathtrap." I managed to keep myself from stuttering as I continued the message "The planet itself seems predatory, if this is anything to go by. I believe the natives of this planet will have succumbed to the frost during this storm. If not this one, then the next one. Or the one after that. However long it takes. Nothing should be able to survive such harsh winds in this temperature."
I stop myself, taking a few deep breaths, then another bite of my ration. "... If you're stationed near Venlil Prime. Please, find Pallhen. He's my father... tell him... I love him, and that I'm with Mother now." I choke past a tear as I looked to the systems. "Looks like the lights are about to fail, if the controls are anything to go by. Even if the pilot and captain return. We won't be able to even launch... Final log of Junior Explorer Jannim. Protector watch over us." I sighed before ending the Log. Left in silence, I listened to the predatory-storm beat on the ship. And watch Horkles' corpse lay on the medical table of our ship.
Silently counting the emergency rations, and what regular rations we have left. I would last around a week. Perhaps longer if I space my meals out... I think I'll just keep my meals as is, having to do with spacing meals out will just raise my hopes... Can't really have that if this storm lasts much longer.
I resumed eating my ration as I try to guess what the natives were like before this planet became a great, big, Temperature Predator. ------------------------------------------------ Memory Transcript: Felix Hawthorn - Captain, leader of the last City
Date: [standardized human time]: Day 48
"Captain!" A harsh voice awakens me, I use my one good arm to push the Faith Keepers' hands off me. He was apparently shaking me awake. "I'm up, I'm up!" I cried out as I sighed. I could see the relief worm its way onto Brother Collins' face. "Captain. We made it" he exclaimed as a mix of relief and pure joy radiates from his face to his voice. I grumbled in tired bewilderment as I turned to look at the thermometer.
"The storm has passed!" Collin cheered as I mentally froze at the sight on the Thermometer on the wall. -20 degrees Celsius... "Brother Collin! don't just stand there!" I cried out as I stand up with as much my renewed vigor would allow me. Causing the Faith-keeper to freeze in place. "Get out there, and tell the Guards to check the people, check them yourself it you have to. I need information on how our population handled this storm before we move forward!" I shout my orders at Collin, before grabbing my scarf off my neck. The ice still hasn't thawed off my scarf but... I fashion it into a sling for my arm "I'll be here after I have my arm amputated. Can't die now after all we went through." I allow a slight snicker escape my lips as I walk out the doors of my office and marched to the nearest infirmary. I could hear Collin run out of the office shortly after me and went off to find the guards, check families. Maybe both.
To my relief, the infirmary I first arrived at had a place open for me. Due to overcrowding, I was given a seat on the floor. And now... here I wait, listening to the doctors and nurses comfort and calm the ill and wounded. A few shot nasty glares at me... I'd like to see them try and prepare the city for a storm like that. I think I did pretty well... ---A few hours later.--- "So... we're at 307 able bodies, a hundred dead. Five missing. And finally, 246 amputees" I stated to the Head guardsmen, Matthew Williams. And there beside him stood high Priest Jenkins Anderson. "Moral will go up of course, everyone who survived the storm will feel nothing but joy for a while. But now we have to deal with reverting the city to what it was before the storm." I point to Matthew with my newly attached arm, the claw couldn't point fingers but it works when I need to grab something. I shift to point at Anderson as this was for them both to do. "Spread word that we are sending hunters back out and are putting the hothouses back up. I want scouts looking through the wilderness for anything they can find out there. We're not out of the storm yet" I declared as I brought my prosthetic back down. "Take stock of what rations we currently have, and spread them out as much as you can to the population. Send word to the Factory to start churning out Prosthetics... And when you have the scouts ready, inform me." Mister Williams saluted me before leaving the office, while Anderson stays there, watching me... "Did... the two come back?" I asked him, the silent shake of his head told me everything... "We don't have the bodies... find out the name of that father and his daughter, then make a pair of graves for them." Anderson nods and with a respectful bow, stepped out the door.
Finally left to my thoughts, I sat back in my chair. Staring at my desk. So many lives lost... I did what I could, but should I have done better? I could have done better... they are all dead because of me, how many of them were parents?... how many children?
I sat in silence as I start a prayer to the dead. Praying they forgive me for failing them. Praying again that they pass on to a place better than where we are. And finally, Praying that someone up there actually is listening...
Once my prayers were done, I looked to the reports brother Collin had placed on my desk during my time in the Infirmary. Apparently something had crashed during the start of the great storm. There was something flying out there... Going by the calculations the engineers did under Collins' request. The crash is relatively close by... a three day travel on foot, two via riding one of the automatons through the days and night.
I stand from my desk and walk out the door, Paying some mind to a picture of my wife on my way out. I had to be one of the scouts. For this at the very least... if there is some hope there is a survivor out there, if the father and his daughter is there... I have to be certain... we have enough automatons and able bodies to use the coal mines and coal thumpers. And after the storm, I do not believe we required the other laws. I'll leave the high priest in charge until my return. Matthews is a good man but... Anderson is the more compassionate of the two. He'll keep up the moral while I'm away.


This wasn't a lot, but hey. Hope you liked the introduction. If anyone has any questions regarding New London in the story, please feel free to ask. If anyone has anything to just say, feel free to share your thoughts.

2023.06.07 09:48 FortyishYearOld Best banking service in BEL for expats?

Hello all,
We will shortly move from The Netherlands to Belgium while keeping our expat status.
What are the best financial institution in Belgium for our expat needs (private banking, online retail banking, mortgages, insurance, funds, options, and stock management)?
In NLD we had a special diplomatic / expat agreement with ABN AMRO with advantageous conditions for insurance, mortgages, online banking, etc.
Any recommendations you can give us in BEL? Any institutions to avoid at all costs?
I've searched on the sub, but Reddit search is ridiculously bad...

2023.06.07 09:41 ext23 From August 1, you won't be able to use any credit cards other than PayPay-issued credit cards when paying via PayPay

Just got the email from Rakuten.
I doubt anybody on this fair planet even owns a PayPay credit card, and so for the rest of us, well we won't be able to use our linked Rakuten/Amazon/etc. credit cards with PayPay any more as of August 1.
So that means (I guess) linking directly to your bank account for direct debit, and no points accumulation (outside of PayPay itself I guess).
Nice one, PayPay.

2023.06.07 09:37 IrritablePanda086 First time home buyer questions

Husband and I combined make a minimum/ base gross of $308,000, but will definitely have more income from OT. We are around 40 ish and also behind in retirement. The housing market is so competitive right now for buyers and sellers are getting multiple offers over asking. We are in CA, planning to do a conventional loan with 3% down, and just placed an offer of $670k. We have approx $56k in bank, most of which has been for emergency fund but will take the down payment from it. It doesn’t seem to make sense for us to continue renting but I just want to make sure I’m not buying too much house for our lifestyle and goals. I’ve tried doing some budgeting and retirement calculations and have included our payroll taxes and maxing out retirement accts such as 401k and IRA. With the interest rates being so high, our mortgage payment including taxes and insurance would be around $5300 for the house we want. Does this seem reasonable? Is there anything else I’m missing here? I just want to make sure I am doing my calculations correctly and that we are making a responsible choice. And there are definitely some cheaper fixer uppers available but it seems like we can just spend the extra money for something that is already completed. Another option would be to purchase a townhouse or condo but we have rented and shared walls in the past and are kind of over it. Condos and townhouses also have fairly high HOA and or Mello-Roos, which if you take those fees also pretty much equate to an actual house. Thanks for any tips or feedback.

2023.06.07 09:34 Successful_Major1966 Daniel H Cole: Role of Financial Innovation in Contemporary Markets

As we delve deeper into finance, we encounter innumerable experts who have significantly contributed to the field. One such key expert is Daniel H Cole, whose expertise lies in understanding the role of financial innovation in contemporary markets. With a solid academic background, he has been instrumental in shaping the discourse around financial innovation and its impact on economies worldwide. In this article, we will explore the insights and perspectives of Daniel H Cole as he shares his thoughts on the evolving landscape of financial innovation and its potential to disrupt traditional markets.
Through his extensive research and analysis, Cole has shed light on the critical role financial innovation has played in driving economic growth and enhancing the efficiency of financial systems.

The History of Financial Innovation

Daniel H Cole holds a vast knowledge of the history of financial innovation and is well-versed in its evolution over time. According to him, financial innovation has been integral to human society for centuries. However, in recent times, the pace and scope of financial innovation have accelerated dramatically due to numerous technological advancements, globalization, and deregulation. The financial innovation journey began in the early modern era with the establishment of banks and the development of the stock market, which allowed the trading of securities.
These innovations facilitated capital raising and enabled risk-sharing, increasing economic growth. Over the years, financial innovation has continued to evolve with the creation of new financial instruments and the emergence of digital finance. Today we see financial innovation driving the development of cryptocurrencies, peer-to-peer lending, and robo-advisory platforms, enabling people to invest their money innovatively. Despite its many benefits, financial innovation has also led to challenges, including increased market volatility, systemic risks, and regulatory gaps.
However, with proper regulation and supervision, financial innovation can be essential for enhancing market efficiency and promoting economic growth.

Contemporary Financial Innovations

Contemporary financial innovations have transformed the economic landscape in previously unimaginable ways, and these innovations continue to change how people invest, save, and access financial services. Daniel H Cole, a renowned expert in the field, observes that contemporary financial innovation is characterized by using cutting-edge technology to create new products and services that are more accessible, efficient, and affordable.
One of the most significant developments in contemporary financial innovation is the emergence of digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. These cryptocurrencies have gained popularity due to their decentralized nature, which allows for frictionless and borderless transactions. Daniel Cole
Blockchain technology, the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies, has also been adopted by various industries as a tool for enhancing transparency, security, and accountability.
Peer-to-peer lending platforms have also disrupted the traditional lending industry by creating new channels for borrowers to access credit. These platforms allow individuals and businesses to lend and borrow money from one another without the need for intermediaries such as banks. Peer-to-peer lending increases access to credit and creates new investment opportunities for individuals.
Robo-advisory platforms have also transformed the way people invest their money. These platforms use algorithms to provide individuals with investment advice and portfolio management services. Robo-advisory media have democratized investment opportunities by enabling individuals with little or no investment experience to invest their money in professionally managed portfolios. Finally, financial inclusion has been enhanced through mobile banking and payment platforms.
These platforms allow individuals to conduct financial transactions using their mobile devices without needing a physical bank account. This has significantly increased access to financial services for the unbanked and underbanked populations, leading to a more inclusive financial system. Contemporary financial innovation has brought numerous opportunities for individuals and businesses to access financial services, invest their money, and manage their finances. As Daniel H Cole notes, financial innovation has the potential to drive economic growth and enhance market efficiency, but it must be regulated to mitigate risks and ensure stability.

Benefits and Risks of Financial Innovation

Daniel H Cole, a leading expert in financial innovation, has provided insights into the benefits and risks of this rapidly evolving field. Financial innovation has significantly enhanced market efficiency and created new opportunities for individuals and businesses to access financial services, but it has also brought challenges that must be addressed. One of the most significant benefits of financial innovation is increased access to credit and investment opportunities. Peer-to-peer lending platforms have made it possible for individuals to lend and borrow money from one another, decreasing the reliance on traditional banks and increasing access to credit.
Similarly, robo-advisory platforms use algorithms to provide investment advice and portfolio management services for individuals, democratizing investment opportunities. Furthermore, mobile banking and payment platforms have significantly increased access to financial services for previously unbanked and underbanked populations. Financial innovation has also enhanced market efficiency, promoting economic growth. Improved technological infrastructure has increased the speed and accuracy of financial transactions, reducing costs and increasing the reach of financial services. Furthermore, financial innovation has facilitated risk-sharing and diversified investment opportunities, promoting market stability.
However, financial innovation has also brought risks that must be addressed through regulatory action. Increased market volatility and systemic risks are serious challenges associated with financial innovation. The complexity of financial instruments has led to opaque and unpredictable markets, contributing to market instability. Regulatory gaps and weak supervision of financial markets have also created avenues for fraud and misconduct.
Daniel H Cole has emphasized financial innovation has brought numerous benefits, including increased access to financial services, improved market efficiency, and economic growth. However, these benefits come with challenges that must be addressed through proper regulation and supervision. Steps must be taken to ensure financial innovation promotes stability, protects consumers and investors, and mitigates risk. In conclusion, the role of financial innovation in contemporary markets is multifaceted and constantly evolving.
As financial expert, Daniel H Cole notes, "Financial innovation is not just about creating new products, but also about improving the efficiency and transparency of financial markets." While certain risks are associated with financial innovation, the potential benefits are diverse and far-reaching. As we look to the future, it's clear that financial innovation will continue to play a critical role in shaping the global economy. By understanding the history and implications of these technological advances, we can better prepare for the challenges and opportunities.
