Peacock Syndrome – America’s Fatal Disease / Politics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."  - Aldous Huxley

How to Prepare for and Profit From the Stalled U.S. Debt Limit Talks / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Investment_U

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Lichtenfeld writes: Last November, I wrote about how to protect yourself from an impending crash that would take place this year – if the threat of failure to raise the debt ceiling seemed real.

As of right now, most people expect some resolution to be reached in the next few weeks before the August 2 debt-hike deadline.

What the U.S. Government Will Never Tell You About the Debt Crisis / Politics / US Debt

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, I devoted the latest issue of The 12% Letter to the debt ceiling... and how it will affect us as investors.

After sifting through the government's numbers and mindless claims of "Armageddon," I believe it should not worry you as an investor. And I'm convinced as ever the "debt ceiling" debate is a dog and pony show that distracts Americans from our country's biggest problem.

Financial Armageddon is Looking Better and Better / Politics / US Debt

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there a fender anywhere in Christendom that the financial authorities have not dented yet?

They are lost without a compass. They are up the river without a paddle. At the automatic teller without a pin number. They have no theory that has not been discredited. They have no experience which does not contradict them.

There Is Life after Debt Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Peter_G_Klein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy father was a historian, and he helped organize local events to commemorate the bicentennials of the Declaration of Independence in 1976 and Constitution in 1987. I particularly remember the Freedom Train, a traveling exhibit housing memorabilia such as original copies of the Declaration, the Constitution, the Louisiana Purchase document, and (I learn from Wikipedia, though I don't remember these) Judy Garland's dress from The Wizard of Oz and Joe Frazier's boxing trunks.

Kamikaze War on U.S. Debt Ceiling / Politics / US Debt

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York: During World War 2, the Japanese deployed units of pilots who turned their planes into bombs, and sacrificed themselves in the name of their emperor in a holy war against US ships. They would aim for the deck of aircraft carriers and do as much damage as they could at a cost of their equipment and their lives.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Myths / Politics / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt ceiling debate that has dominated the headlines over the past month has been thoroughly infused with a string of unfortunate misconceptions and a number of blatant deceptions. As a result, the entire process has been mostly hot air.

While a recitation of all the errors would be better attempted by a novelist rather than a weekly columnist, I'll offer my short list.

U.S. Economic Policy Failures, Federal Debt Bomb End Game / Economics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong-time readers are familiar with the wisdom of Lacy Hunt. He is a regular feature of Outside the Box. He writes a quarterly piece for Hoisington Asset Management in Austin, and this is one of his better ones. Read it twice.

"While the massive budget deficits and the buildup of federal debt, if not addressed, may someday result in a substantial increase in interest rates, that day is not at hand. The U.S. economy is too fragile to sustain higher interest rates except for interim, transitory periods that have been recurring in recent years. As it stands, deflation is our largest concern ..."

The Painful Consequences of a U.S. Debt Ceiling Increase / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Failure to reach a compromise on a U.S. debt ceiling increase could result in an unmitigated economic disaster - one so unprecedented government and private analysts can't even accurately pinpoint all the potential consequences.

To avert this crisis, U.S. President Barack Obama wants a debt ceiling increase of $2 trillion, which analysts say would carry the country through the end of 2012. The president has moved the deadline for reaching an agreement up to July 22.

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe blood pressure of the patient in the emergency room drops precipitously.

The ER docs have already given 15 pints of blood over the course of many hours. But the patient is still on the verge of dying.

Medical rules and regulations say that more than 15 pints of blood should never be given, as too much transfusion can cause other fatal problems.

Pushing U.S. Treasury Default Beyond August 2 / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

If the federal debt ceiling were not raised by August 2, there still would be temporary means for the Treasury to keep paying all of its bills for a while. The Treasury could pull an FDR and revalue its gold holdings. Currently, the Treasury is valuing its gold holdings at $42.22 an ounce. By revaluing its gold holdings near the current open-market price, say at $1,575 an ounce, the value of Treasury gold holdings would rise by $400.8 billion. The Fed could write up the Treasury's deposit account by that much and the bills could be paid for a bit longer even without an increase in the debt ceiling.

Gross said that he doesn't expect QE3, but that he expects the Fed to reiterate language. He also said that lawmakers "don't get" the long-term implications of the debt debate and that they "need to approach it gradually" when it comes to cutting spending.

Lower the U.S. Debt Ceiling / Politics / US Debt

By: Mark_Thornton

Currently, the big show in Washington, DC, centers around raising the debt ceiling. Congress began setting this ceiling in 1917 so that the Treasury could independently issue debt. The debt ceiling is like the limit on your credit card, except the federal government sets the limit on itself. When President Nixon took us off the gold standard in 1971, the national debt was $400 billion. The increase in the national debt last year alone was four times the entire debt in 1971.
