Die geheime Macht der Ratingagenturen: Die Spielmacher des by Ulrich Horstmann

By Ulrich Horstmann

Die Urteile der Ratingagenturen gleichen zuweilen dem kaiserlichen »Daumen runter«, nur wiegen sie ungleich schwerer: Sie besiegeln das Schicksal ganzer Volkswirtschaften. Überfallartig, willkürlich, deadly – so erscheinen die Urteile der drei großen amerikanischen Oligopolisten average & Poor's, Moody's und Fitch. Gerade diese drei Ratinggiganten aber haben die Finanzkrise entscheidend mitverursacht. Dafür sind sie bis heute nicht zur Verantwortung gezogen worden. Stattdessen agieren sie weiter im Schatten, sind niemandem rechenschaftspflichtig und realisieren astronomische Gewinnmargen, die jedweder Grundlage entbehren. Der Eindruck, einem elitären Geheimzirkel willkürlich ausgeliefert zu sein, ist nicht nur subjektives Vorurteil, sondern wird durch Fakten und Recherche objektiv bestätigt. Ulrich Horstmann bringt Licht in das dunkle Gebaren und die undurchsichtigen Machenschaften der Ratingagenturen. Der langjährige Analyst im Bankengewerbe kennt die tägliche Arbeit der Ratingagenturen so intestine wie kaum ein anderer. Er analysiert die Bonitätsherabstufungen, die ganzen Volkswirtschaften abrupt den Boden entziehen, nennt Gewinner und Verlierer dieser verheerenden Politik und prangert das fatale Anreizsystem an, mit denen Ratingagenturen belohnt werden.
