Debt and Deficits, “The New Humpty Dumpty” / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIrony is a wonderful thing sometimes. It has a habit of framing things exactly the way they need to be framed. Unfortunately, this is a knife that cuts both ways and irony sometimes points out awful realities. I am not a political animal per se, but I find it incredibly ironic how the avalanche of bad news on the deficit, Social Security, and essentially most of the things wrong with our economy was saved until after Tuesday’s SOTU speech. Make no mistake, this has happened before, and each time I find the timing to be absolutely incredible. It is very clear at least at this point that our leaders prefer to pay lip service to the idea of reducing the deficit rather than actually trying to rectify the situation. I say this because, with very few exceptions, the rhetoric centers around a silver bullet solution that will allow programs and spending to remain pretty much on the same path as what got us here, but at the same time, ‘fixing’ things.

Should Congress Raise the U.S. Debt Ceiling? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt current rates of spending, the federal government may bump up against its debt limit as early as March. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warns that it will be "catastrophic to the economy" if Congress doesn't increase Uncle Sam's credit limit. Writers in conservative outlets call for Republicans to use this opportunity to extract significant spending cuts before extending the limit. And some extreme libertarians argue that the debt ceiling shouldn't be raised, because a government default would be a good thing for the American people.

The Symbolic U.S. Debt Ceiling / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDemocratic politics relies on deception. Without deception of the voters on a comprehensive scale, there could be no politics above the local level, where people know the deceivers personally and are therefore less easy to fool.

Basic to deception are symbols. Symbols serve politicians in much the same way as a red cape serves a matador.

Federal Debt of the United States - Q and A (Part II) / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article[Part I, question 1-3] published on Jan 11, 2011.

4.  Will Congress entertain not raising the statutory debt limit?

Congress will increase the statutory debt limit prior to the deadline.  There is not even an inkling of doubt about this eventuality.  But, unfavorable posturing by politicians, prior to taking the appropriate action, is nearly certain and tentative market concern will prevail.  The terms of the deal the Republicans will strike to raise the debt limit is the source of uncertainty not whether they will raise the borrowing limit.  The Treasury Department estimates that the national debt will hit the statutory limit between March 31 and May 16.  In the meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Geithner has indicated that the Treasury could take "exceptional actions" to delay the deadline by suspending the sale of state and local government securities, which would buy time for a few weeks.

Geithner Says the US Government Is Bankrupt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. government is insolvent. Who says so? Timothy F. Geithner, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury.

Geithner sent a letter to Congress on Jan. 6, 2011 asking for the debt limit to be raised. If it is not raised, he warned, the U.S. will default on its debt. In his words:

Never in our history has Congress failed to increase the debt limit when necessary. Failure to raise the limit would precipitate a default by the United States."

Reckless U.S. Deficit Spending May Reap Inflation Whirlwind / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Bill Gross, the PIMCO Money Manager, to whom it is often worth listening, cautioned this week that our nations leaders really do not know where they are going.  They are mired in the fiscal quicksands of perpetual trillion dollar deficits.  I believe as he does that there will be more agony ahead after the present euphoria in the equity markets.  Thus I say, “Caveat Emptor-Let the Buyer Beware!”  Our leaders are paying scant attention to the “Buck” that is being passed on to our children who are going to be stuck with the bills that we are dumping on them.  Today I do not see anybody around to weep for our infants.  As the reporter covering the burning of the Hindenburg shouted in horror, “O the humanity!”

Rising Interest Rates Reveal Debt Reality / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

The Fed's lucky streak of luring bond investors with low interest rates may be drawing to a close. Nevertheless, the extended period of low borrowing costs has bred a new breed of investor. To the bulls and bears, we can now add the ostriches - those who bury their heads in the sand of declining debt service ratios while refusing to face up to intractable levels of total US government debt. If these ostriches were to actually look at the numbers, they would realize that it is their investments which are made of sand.
