Deficit Terrorism and Economic Warfare as Main Street Slips Into Debt Slavery / Politics / US Debt

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street banks have been saved from bankruptcy by governments that are now going bankrupt themselves; but the banks are not returning the favor.  Instead, they are engaged in a class war, insisting that the squeezed middle class be even further squeezed to balance over-stressed government budgets.  All the perks are going to Wall Street, while Main Street slips into debt slavery.  Wall Street needs to be made to pay its fair share, but how?

Fed Credit, Inflation and the Idiots in the Middle / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA whole series of alarms occurred after I got the news, although I lost the source, that “food stamp usage just soared to a new record high” of 40.2 million persons.

This number is alarming in itself because it means that the economy is so bad that more and more hungry people cannot afford to even feed themselves, sort of like teenagers, but with hopefully better manners and dietary choices.

U.S. Debt Bomb Detonation Expedited by 5 Years / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

A Treasury Department report to Congress last week stated that total U.S. debt will climb to $19.6 trillion by 2015, as opposed to the 2019 date previously estimated. Treasury also estimated that total U.S. debt will top 13.6 trillion this year and would rise to 102% of GDP by 2015 as well. And most astonishingly, the report projected that the publicly traded debt (debt excluding intragovernmental obligations) would rise to $14 trillion by 2015, up from last year’s debt of “just” $7.5 trillion.

The U.S. Federal Government Debt and Deficit - Congressman, Heal Thyself! / Economics / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn one of this past Sunday's morning political talk shows, I heard a congressman say that the runaway federal government spending had to stop. Congressman, sir, although the spending continues to increase, the rate of growth in that spending has slowed enormously. In the 12 months ended May 2010, the accumulated spending by the federal government totaled $3.437 trillion, enough to keep the late Senator Dirksen spinning in his grave for near eternity. Although an admittedly high level, this 12-month accumulated total federal spending was only 2.6% higher than the 12-month accumulated total federal spending for May 2009 (see Chart 1).

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are currently in the midst of a Fourth Turning. This twenty year Crisis began during the 2005 - 2008 timeframe with the collapse of the housing bubble and subsequent repercussions on the worldwide financial system. It is progressing as expected, with the financial crisis deepening and leading to tensions across the world. It will eventually morph into military conflict, as all prior Fourth Turnings have. The progression from High to Awakening through the Unraveling took from 1946 until 2006. The most treacherous period of the Saeculm is upon us.

Misreading Economic Indicators Leads to Bad Policy / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll this talk about how borrowing costs are so low that Washington couldn’t possibly be facing any sort of a debt crisis – that the 3.2 percent yield on the ten-year note is somehow a vote of confidence in policies coming out of the nation’s capitol – makes me think that, just as the insane fixation on a low consumer price index was a major contributor to the financial crisis, signals coming from U.S. debt markets are being similarly misinterpreted today and this may ultimately lead to an even bigger crisis in our not-too-distant future.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe national debt of the United States reached the record level of $13 trillion, which means that every US citizen owes the world $42,000. It seems that the US administration does not seem to care much about the fact. Barack Obama believes that it is the fault of the previous government. Obama stated during his speech at Pittsburg that his administration was not guilty of the enormous national debt. He said that he took office during the time of the crisis, when the economic recession in the country resulted in the creation of a huge hole of $3 trillion in the budget of the country.
