U.S. States Slowly Slipping Into Bankruptcy and Beyond / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Everyone is focused on Europe and their debt problems. The peripheral countries (i.e. PIIGS) of Europe are now being asked to sell off national assets to keep the bankers fat and happy. What a system, huh? Meanwhile, several larger states in the United States (e.g., Illinois, California) are quietly slipping into bankruptcy and beyond. Will they be bailed out? The odds are strongly in favor of federal help for states in dire financial straights. After all, an election year is coming and who ever heard of a government not willing to give away other people's money/future purchasing power to get a few more votes for the incumbents?

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJean-Claude Junker, the man who says "When it becomes serious, you have to lie", apparently has had a sudden splash of honesty, stating Greek sovereignty to be massively limited.

China Owns More Debt Than Thought: Did US Win Inflation War? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It has been brought to the attention of the Treasury that China may own more US Treasury debt than once thought.  Rules put in place in 2009 limited would-be buyers of US Treasury debt to 35% of any given auction, but by using primary dealers (who have to buy US Treasuries at auction) as a proxy, the Chinese government has purchased more Treasuries than originally thought.

Global Interest Rate Movements: Half-Year Review / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: CentralBankNews

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article reviews the monetary policy interest rate activity of the world's central banks during the first half of 2011.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Since last November, the U.S. Federal Reserve has been buying U.S. Treasury bonds at a rate of about $75 billion a month.

But QE2 ended yesterday (Thursday), meaning the Fed will no longer be a big buyer of Treasury bonds.

Can the EU Fix Greece? / Interest-Rates / Euro-Zone

By: Victoria_Marklew

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Greek parliament has passed the latest austerity package asked for by the IMF/ EU, and has approved the implementation legislation spelling out the various steps in detail. The markets have heaved a sigh of relief, comforted by the assumption that a new "bailout" plan is in the works. However, nothing has fundamentally changed: Greece is still facing an unsustainable debt burden and the various agencies of the European Union are still unable to come up with a coherent approach to the financial and structural challenges facing many member states.

S&P, U.S. Will Lift Debt Ceiling, Avoid Default Rating / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Chambers, managing director of sovereign ratings at Standard & Poor’s, spoke with Bloomberg Television's Erik Schatzker this morning about the debt ceiling and U.S. credit rating.

Chambers said that S&P would lower its sovereign top-level AAA ranking to D if the U.S. can't pay its debt, but clarified that S&P thinks that the government “will raise the debt ceiling.” He also said that if we get to a situation where the government can’t pay its debts, it will be “much more chaotic” than the September 2008 Lehman collapse.

European Debt Crisis Investing, Buy U.S. Treasury Bills / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Fortune (citing IMF data), Germany’s banks are now more leveraged than Lehman Brothers at the time of its collapse (Lehman: 31 to 1). Similarly, their leverage is financed by “cheap, short-term loans that are vulnerable to a market shock.” These loans (as we explained last December) are from money market funds here in the U.S. (Investors should Buy Treasury Bills instead.)

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Greek population is in constant revolt with another 48 hour national strike underway against ever expanding announcements of economic austerity though to date little of which has actually been implemented and therefore risks at the very a least a delay of the latest tranche of Euro 12 billion in what has now become a permanent flow of funds from core Euro-zone to Greece and other peripheral eurozone countries, therefore tax payers of core Europe and to a lesser degree Britain are being taxed to pay for the unwillingness of the PIIGS to pay their bills.
