E.U. Bailout Just Delays Inevitable Sovereign Debt Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReplacing most of Europe's colorful notes and various coins less than a decade ago, the euro is on the brink of extinction, according to Trader Tracks' Roger Wiegand, sharing news and views of Euroland's critical condition with Gold Report readers in this exclusive interview. Roger says the euro at $1.20 is the "line in the sand where big trouble will start. . .and that's dangerously close." On the other side of the world, he sees China doing well now, but doesn't pin his hopes on China as the engine for global economic growth as so many others do. In fact, he says things there are "fraying a bit on the edges." So, is there a white horse waiting in the wings to lead the world back to economic good health? Read on. . .

Sovereign Debt Crisis, America, PIIGS “R” Us too? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pollaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title of this essay may be a play on words but the facts are nothing of the sort.  Indeed, the facts suggest that the financial position of the U.S. government may not be all that much better than the financial position of the governments of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece or Spain, the so-called PIIGS.  In fact, given the agenda the Obama administration has set for America, one so far distinguished by ever larger government spending programs being financed by ever larger amounts of debt, the U.S. government may be well on its way to becoming PIIGS “R” Us.

U.S. Budget Deficit and Debt Landmines Dead Ahead! / Economics / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Chris Wood, Jake Weber, and Vedran Vuk, The Casey Report write: Hearing President Obama’s economic peptalks, you might be under the impression that the U.S. needs to keep spending for just a little while longer to stimulate the economy – but then will swear off big deficits.

Reinforcing the point, to address concerns stirred by a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) forecast that the U.S. government will accumulate total deficits in excess of $6 trillion over the next decade, in February President Obama issued an executive order to create a bipartisan fiscal commission. The commission’s task is to deliver recommendations to the president by December 1 for limiting future deficits to 3% of GDP. (The FY 2009 deficit approached 10% of GDP. The FY 2010 deficit will probably go even higher.)

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe similarities between the subprime mortgage crisis and that of the coming collapse of the U.S. bond market are uncanny. In fact, Mark Twain may have had the U.S. debt market and the previous debt-fueled real estate crisis in mind when he said that “History does not repeat itself—but it does rhyme.”

The Unfolding Debt Danger: Greece Today…America Tomorrow? / Economics / US Debt

By: Paul_Mladjenovic

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been analyzing economics and financial markets for over a quarter century and my analysis always stopped at “financial”. In other words, I do not follow trough usually past the financial theme. After all, as a certified financial planner (CFP), you usually think in terms of dollars and cents, interest rates and all sorts of financially-oriented concepts. I have always been concerned about the financial and economic impact of many different kinds of policies and events but in recent years I started thinking “outside of my own box.”

Debt, A Simple, but Painful Economic Lesson / Economics / US Debt

By: Doug_Wakefield

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo years ago, Jim Grant, ofGrant’s Interest Rate Observer, mentioned a book he had just read by physicist Mark Buchanan titled, “Ubiquity: The Science of History…or Why the World is Simpler Than We Think.”  I purchased a copy of the book for my own library and have referenced it in several of my writings. The theme, “the world is simpler than we think”, seems to defy the very modern world we live in.  Just look at the picture below. Is this a group of college students learning how scientists have solved a complex physics problem, or a group of citizens trying to understand how the billions in TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) funds were created and used?

U.S. Government Deficit Spending Debt, We’re All Comrades Now / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report writes : To ascertain what move the government is most likely to take next, we must first assess the probabilities.

In order to do that, we start by restating the central question, “How does the U.S. government spend, spend, spend (a minimum of $10 trillion in red ink over the next decade) and yet maintain today’s historically low interest rates?”

U.S. Debt and Bankruptcy / Economics / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has never been as much attention paid to the situation of a looming American bankruptcy since the National Debt Clock made its debut many moons ago. It is hard these days to pick up a newspaper or look at a TV program without hearing someone mention our massive debt. And they’d be correct in saying we’re in big trouble. Numerous articles have asked the question ‘Is America Bankrupt?’ While bankruptcy on a family or individual scale is a fairly simple construct to grasp, such is not the case when it comes to a nation or group of nations, as is the case in Europe. This week’s essay is dedicated to making a rather complex question a little easier to understand, and more importantly – to arrive at a more definitive answer.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world is breathing a sigh of relief now that the financial crisis in Greece is “over.” Yeah, right. Greece’s financial misdeeds — the country has racked up a lot of debts it can’t pay — will probably come back to haunt Europe, and soon.

But we in America shouldn’t be too smug, because U.S. states have their own money problems, many of them worse than anything facing Greece — and the problems at home are starting to erupt!

Government Stimulus Trillions In Borrowings, Just Say NO! / Economics / US Debt

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet me start out by asking a few questions. How many of you were pro-bailout? How many pro-healthcare? How many think borrowing trillions of dollars to “stimulate” will really have any long term effect what-so-ever on the economy? How many realize that borrowing and spending really isn’t the cure for a problem caused by too much debt and too much consumption?

Now let me ask another question. Aren’t our politicians supposed to represent the will of the people?

EXTEND & PRETEND: U.S. High Yield Debt Hitting the Maturity Wall! / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow long can the government continue to extend & pretend? How long can public policy endlessly ‘kick-the-can’ down the road without addressing the underlying causes? Such a critical point is often academically referred to as a ‘Tipping Point’ or what newsletter writer John Mauldin refers to as a ‘Finger of Instability’.  I am more pragmatic and as an investor, who is forced to call the timing, I refer to it as the Maturity Wall.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn February 19, 2010 Wall Street Journal, Daniel Henninger included the following chart in his column. Federal spending has grown seven times the real median household income over the last 40 years. At some point, the government will be unable to pay for all the new programs, stimulus, healthcare, rapid expansion in number of government employees, etc. The market will drive up the cost of debt to levels that lead to default. Many say it cannot happen to the U.S.

U.S. Debt Reaches Tipping Point / Economics / US Debt

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Even the most statist economists can understand that a country’s debt has reached its saturation point once the change in Gross Domestic Product is less than the change in the federal debt.  However, now the metrics of the American economy look even worse than the picture painted above. For each new dollar in federal debt, with productivity as measured by an increase or decrease in the GDP, 45 cents of wealth is destroyed.

Tim Gatto writes: We are at a precipice. This is the end of one era and the beginning of another. The “real” world that so many people believe in, here in America is not the world you see on your TV sets, that is the world that the government and the media want you to believe in. We are so accustomed to believing in our own American ideology that we can’t understand the ramifications of what we have done.
