Bankrupt Los Angeles, Harbinger for America / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a piece for the Wall Street Journal, Joel Kotkin tells of the demise of Los Angeles. No, you won't see Snake Plissken or Rick Deckard racing through the City of Angels just yet. But the city's political machine is doing all it can "to leave behind a dense, government-dominated, bankrupt, dysfunctional, Athens by the Pacific," explains Kotkin.

U.S. Debt Downgrade Drama / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell we’ve done it. It’s official. The partisan bickering in Congress has managed to snatch defeat from the mouth of victory. I have written that I find it incredibly ironical that if S&P had done their job properly in the years of 2000 – 2007 we would not find ourselves in this economic morass. When the banks were selling these toilet paper mortgages, toxic assets and bundling them together as CDO’s who was stamping them “AAA”? S&P. S&P is a culpable for the collapse of the economic system as any of the greedy bankers. In my opinion they are more to blame. It was their job to make sure that this kind of greed and arrogance would not be tolerated.  Instead they were willing co-conspirators in this fraud that was perpetrated on the ill educated middle class.

U.S. Yellow Fever Economy, Problem of Massive Debt / Economics / US Debt

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial columnists of the sky-is-sagging perspective have searched for an accurate metaphor to describe the current economy. We have all failed.

"A slow-motion train wreck" doesn't work, because train wrecks as bad as what we are facing are high-speed.

U.S. Debt downgrade doesn't mean what you think / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Submissions

Sam Houston writes: The U.S. Treasury borrows money by issuing bonds.  Because it has a massive spending problem and can't live within its means it runs a perpetual and ever expanding deficit.  The deficit is financed by issuing more bonds.  This process is currently going parabolic as the U.S. debt load is expanding at an alarming rate.  See the chart below.

Washington Debt Compromise Spells Death Knell for U.S. Economy / Politics / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Vedran Vuk, Senior Analyst, Casey Research writes: With a last-minute debt deal reached, I’m reminded of two holy words in Washington: “compromise” and “bipartisanship.” It’s amazing that the political elite have so twisted the English language as to lend virtue to these terms. In Washington, these words hold intrinsic value… similar to how “truth” and “honesty” do outside D.C. Unfortunately for the American public, Washington compromises have been and will continue to be the death knell of the U.S. economy – and particularly the free market.

U.S. Debt: Has its Past Become its Future? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Frank Trotter, President, EverBank Direct writes: Friends who know that I speak frequently about global economics have been calling to see what I think about the smackdown arguments over spending in Washington. I have surprised them all by saying that it’s really an empty record. Well, I suppose there is some kind of odd entertainment factor in the recent public debates about the U.S. debt ceiling.

U.S. National Debt Heading for $23 Trillion by 2021 / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: There was a lot of back-patting in Washington this week after U.S. President Barack Obama signed a debt-ceiling deal that he and members of Congress claim will reduce the national debt.

But here's the truth: This deal does nothing to reduce America's debt burden. In fact, the $14 trillion we owe now could every easily exceed $23 trillion by 2021.

Is it a Sea Change if Rating Agencies Stick a Lower Rating for U.S. Sovereign Debt? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt ceiling has been raised through 2012 and political drama related to the debt ceiling is unlikely to be repeated soon. Fitch and Moody’s indicated that the coveted AAA status of U.S. debt remains in place with a possibility of downgrades tied to the nature of fiscal consolidation Congress may deliver. As of this writing, S&P has not made public its opinion, but the new law does not meet its requirement of a $4 trillion reduction of the projected deficits indicated last month. Federal government debt (gross) of the United States stood at 93% of GDP in 2010 (see Chart 1). The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) projections show this number at 105% by 2021.

U.S. Debt Impasse: Fake and Real, The Republican Legacy / Politics / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt ceiling agreement that came over the weekend will raise the ceiling by $2.1 trillion – enough to get this issue off the political table until January 1, 2013, which was Obama's desire.

The House called the bill the Budget Control Act. It was the budget out of control act. It is 74 pages long. No one in Congress had time to read it. Typical.

No Plan B - But Plan Crisis Default Is Coming / Politics / US Debt

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is a truism, and a total consensus view among all analysts of the present sovereign debt financing and monetary meltdown that no Plan B exists. For starters, if there was or had been a Plan B, it would have been used, already, a long time ago. Plan A only has one solution: print money and forget. We now have a radically politicizing context where the bolt-ons to Plan A including austerity-type quick fixes are shorting out any prospect of economic recovery and aggravating existing social stress among the crowd of increasingly enraged victims, the working population, consumers and voters. No Plan B exists.

Toothless Debt Deal Won’t Stop a U.S. Credit-Rating Downgrade / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: It's often said that the sign of a good compromise is that both parties walk away dissatisfied - but that's not necessarily true of the debt deal Congress is close to passing.

To be sure, both parties are dissatisfied with the outcome of this contentious battle. Progressive Democrats are disappointed that planned cuts to government spending won't be augmented with tax increases, while fiscally conservative Republicans are angry that the cuts to spending haven't gone far enough.

U.S. Debt Cut Deal is Just Smoke & Mirrors / Interest-Rates / US Debt

That's it?  This is the deal?  This is what they've been supposedly fighting over for months?

We'll get to the exact details in a moment but let's start by doing a fantasy comparison of the same "cuts" being made in a format that the regular man on the street can understand.

What’s not for the WSJ to Like about the Debt-Ceiling Legislation? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Milton Friedman taught us that the real economic cost of government is not how it raises its funds – taxes or borrowing -- but how many funds in toto it raises. That is, according to Friedman, the real economic cost of government is how much it spends. The pending legislation on the increase in the U.S. public debt ceiling dictates that federal outlays be reduced in the coming 10 fiscal years. So, the editorial board of the WSJ should be ecstatic about the outcome of this debate about the debt-ceiling increase, right? Federal spending will be decreased. But I suspect that very shortly the op-ed page of the WSJ will be complaining about this pending debt-ceiling legislation.

U.S. Debt Deal is a Blank Check / Politics / US Debt

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy supposedly compromising to raise the debt ceiling, Congress and the President have now paved the way for ever higher levels of federal spending. Although, the nation was spared the trauma of borrowing restrictions, the actual risk of default existed solely in the minds of Washington politicians. But the real crisis is not, nor has it ever been, the debt ceiling. The crisis is the debt itself. Economic Armageddon would not have resulted from failure to raise the ceiling, but it will come because we succeeded in raising it. This outcome falls along the lines that I had forecast (See my commentary, "Don't Be Fooled by Political Posturing" from July 9th).
