US Debt Downgrade Grows Closer Than Ever / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEach day that passes without a deal to prevent a U.S. debt default brings the United States closer to a financial calamity that would be more severe than the failure of Lehman Brothers in 2008.

Dueling speeches from U.S. President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-OH, Monday night did nothing to resolve the impasse between Republicans and Democrats over how to reduce budget deficits and raise the debt ceiling past the $14.3 trillion limit by Aug. 2.

U.S. Debt Limit Debate Sign of Deeper Economic Dysfunction / Economics / US Debt

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShadowStats Editor John Williams advises legislators to stop fooling around with the country's credit rating. Regardless of the deal reached, he predicts that the Treasury and Fed will continue to print money to meet obligations and add liquidity to the economy. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he explains how that will have the effect of pushing the price of gold and other commodities even higher.

Investor Moves to Make Before Debt Ceiling Debacles Disfigures Your Portfolio / Portfolio / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: One night at dinner a few years back, my Dad, Greg Fitz-Gerald, explained exactly why the "tax-takers" in Washington think that recoveries, bailouts, negotiations and stimulus packages are a good idea - while the taxpayers believe just the opposite.

"When you rob Peter to pay Paul, Paul generally thinks this is a good idea," he said.

The U.S. Debt Ceiling Charade, $114.5 Trillion of Debt and Liabilities / Politics / US Debt

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a circus the debate over the raising of the US Government debt ceiling has become.  It's fun to watch everyone involved wriggling around trying to ignore the blue whale in the room.

It used to be an elephant... perhaps around 1986.  But now, after a decade of wars and trillion dollar deficits, the US Government debt has become like the largest mammal in the history of the world - the blue whale - and is perhaps so large now that it might be in everyone's best interest just to ignore it or their heads may explode from realizing the enormity of the problem.

U.S. Debt Ceiling - What Now? / Politics / US Debt

By: Axel_Merk

William Poole writes: As I write it appears that the federal government is at the brink of default. The Republicans and Democrats have laid out irreconcilable positions on taxes. President Obama has said that he will not sign a bill that does not have some increases in tax rates on upper-income taxpayers. Republicans have said that they will not accept legislation that provides for such increases. In the negotiations, there has apparently been some progress in identifying spending cuts both sides can accept, but there no compromise is possible on the conflict over taxes.

Obama Demagogues Default / Politics / US Debt

By: John_Browne

President Obama has continued and increased the reckless spending of the previous Administration. Now, as the federal debt reaches its statutory limit, he is spreading fear and panic in the hopes of having it raised.

Many of the key people responsible for America's historic mess, including the President, Treasury Secretary Geithner, former NEC Director Summers, and Fed Chairman Bernanke, have pronounced publicly that a failure to lift the debt ceiling will cause a catastrophic Treasury debt default.>

The Pesky Neighbor and the U.S. Debt Ceiling / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Imagine you had a pesky neighbor who somehow took out a mortgage on his house in your name and by some legal trickery you were obligated to pay for it. Imagine watching this neighbor throw drunken parties, buy expensive cars, add more rooms to the house, and hire dozens of people to wait on him hand and foot. Imagine that he also managed to take out several credit cards in your name. One by one, he would max them out and then use your good name and credit to obtain another credit card, then another and then another.

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debate in Washington over the nation's debt and debt ceiling has President Obama announcing to the White House press corps, "What we need to do is to do our jobs, and we have to do it the same way a family would do it. A family, if they get overextended and their credit card is too high, they don't just stop paying their bills."

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

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.

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.
