Eurozone Debt Crisis, The Euro Debate Gets Philosophical / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope is rapidly approaching the denouement, the Endgame, of its currency experiment. The outcome is not clear, at least to your humble analyst, as the debates rage and there are huge pluses and minuses the 17 nations must decide upon. But the proverbial road down which the can is tumbling and clattering, kicked along haphazardly, is coming to its end, and soon a rather sharp turn, either to the left or to the right, will be required. Let us hope they choose wisely.

The US's Education Bubble / Politics / Education

By: Doug_Horning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Hornig and Alex Daley, Casey Research writes: In the world of finance, there is always talk of bubbles – mortgage bubbles, tech stock bubbles, junk bond bubbles. But bubbles don’t develop only in financial markets. In recent years, there's been another one quietly inflating, not capturing the attention of most observers.

It's an education bubble – just not the one of student debt that has graced the pages of the New York Times and so many other publications in recent months.

Euro Crisis Destabilizing the U.S. Dollar / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

In response to pressure from Wall Street, the White House and central banks in Europe, the Federal Reserve last week drastically cut interest rates for currency swaps to benefit troubled European banks. This will flood world markets with more dollars and will soon mean rising prices for every American at the grocery store. This extra liquidity will temporarily ease the cash crunch for irresponsible bankers, but in the long run it will make the situation much worse for consumers all over the world. Equities markets registered big gains at the news, but only for a day. Make no mistake - this is not capitalism, and this is not how a free market operates. In a free market, bankruptcies happen, even to large banks. We must remember, free markets are the true and best regulators of financial mismanagement.

The Evil that is Democratic Thought / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mantra that democratic rule exists in the realm of governmental affairs has proven false. The fact that deficit spending is commonplace and acceptable to their populace links the social democracies in a feudal structure that most are unwilling to acknowledge. The practice of debt created bank money underlies every social policy and expenditure. The notion that paying for public projects, based upon popular support and taxes, is extinct. Destroying domestic currencies and obligating future generations to the debt slavery of past failed projects, has replaced the work ethic. Democracies pledge subsidies without labor and security absent of personal freedom.

But when a major spending bill came along last week, members from all across the political spectrum suddenly found themselves in agreement.

Finally, Someone Stands Up to Wall Street / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: One of the biggest problems with Wall Street's malfeasance is how the ruling elite view legal settlements - as little more than an acceptable cost of doing business.

Well, no more.

Thanks to Judge Jed Rakoff we may see some real regulatory action leading to good old-fashioned investigations, perp walks, and even jail for the guilty.

Who Is Winning The War on Wall Street?  / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street has become a battleground, defended by a battalion of New York Cops, and under surveillance around the clock.  There’s a war under way after months of protests and assaults by the non-violent warriors of Occupy Wall Street.

So, who’s winning?

On the surface, despite major layoffs and economic setbacks, you would have to say that the epicenter of our financial markets is alive, if not well. The exchanges and banks remain open for business, even if their costs for security are up, and their long-term optimism is way down.

Is Germany Playing a Saving the Euro-zone Double Game? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGerman chancellor Angela Merkel has called on Europe to “take one big step towards fiscal union” as the price for the European Central Bank's intervention to rescue the weaker member nations.  Each Eurozone member has to decide "Yes" or "No" swiftly, whether it considers Germany's terms acceptable.  Given the difficulty of complying at short notice, some distinguished ATCA 5000 members wonder privately if Dr Merkel is suggesting one way forward to the Eurozone members, whilst preparing vigorously for Germany's exit on the other hand?

The Real Reason Why U.S. Unemployment Will Remain High / Politics / Unemployment

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt took quite a long time for Washington to finally concede something that was apparent; the nation’s excessively high unemployment rate would remain elevated for several years. But their admission has come with a twist.

Instead of pointing to the true reason for this demoralizing reality, establishment economists have offered some ridiculous excuses to account for America’s persistently high unemployment rate. The purpose of this propaganda campaign is to place blame on unemployed workers, rather than address the misguided economic policies established by America’s fascist government.

Is Crony Capitalism Wrong? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Janet_Tavakoli

n November 29, 2011, Bloomberg Magazine’s Richard Teitelbaum published an article revealing a secret meeting on July 21, 2008, with then Secretary of the Treasury and former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson and around a dozen hedge-fund managers and Wall Street executives. 

Five of the hedge fund managers were former Goldman Sachs employees.  The meeting was held at the offices of the founder of hedge fund Eton Park Capital Management, Eric Mindich, a former 15-year employee of Goldman Sachs who rose to be the senior strategy officer of Goldman’s Executive Office.  He is also current Chair of the Asset Managers’ Committee of the President’s Working Group on Capital Markets.

The Fed's 16 Trillion Dollar Bailout of the Too Big To Fail Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat you are about to read should absolutely astound you.  During the last financial crisis, the Federal Reserve secretly conducted the biggest bailout in the history of the world, and the Fed fought in court for several years to keep it a secret.  Do you remember the TARP bailout?  The American people were absolutely outraged that the federal government spent 700 billion dollars bailing out the "too big to fail" banks.  Well, that bailout was pocket change compared to what the Federal Reserve did.  As you will see documented below, the Federal Reserve actually handed more than 16 trillion dollars in nearly interest-free money to the "too big to fail" banks between 2007 and 2010.  So have you heard about this on the nightly news?  Probably not.  Lately Bloomberg has been reporting on some of this, but even they are not giving people the whole picture.  The American people need to be told about this 16 trillion dollar bailout, because it is a perfect example of why the Federal Reserve needs to be shut down.  The Federal Reserve has been actively picking "winners" and "losers" in the financial system, and it turns out that the "friends" of the Fed always get bailed out and always end up among the "winners".  This is not how a free market system is supposed to work.

One Bank to Rule Them All / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Wednesday, the Federal Reserve and the central banks of Canada, England, Japan, Switzerland, and Europe launched a coordinated monetary intervention aimed at easing interbank lending in the eurozone. While the emergency action sent stocks into the stratosphere, it did not relieve tensions in the markets or increase trust between the banks. In fact, on Thursday, banks stashed €313.763 billion at the European Central Bank’s overnight deposit facility, a new high for the year. Banks leave money with the ECB overnight when they are too worried about counterparty risk to lend to other banks. At the same time, the amount of money that EU banks are borrowing from the ECB, continues to rise, indicating their inability to raise money in the capital markets. These signs of growing distress show that the hoopla surrounding the central bank action are unwarranted. Conditions in the eurozone continue to deteriorate.

Europe's Crisis is a Bit Perverse / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe supposedly dominant, supposedly sole possible ideology of market fundamentalism assumes that the most extensive possible use of markets, through inventing or "marketizing" previously non-traded assets, the privatization of publicly owned assets, and the shrinking of public services can only unleash maximal competition. This in turn is assumed to result in and deliver the greatest public good.
