The Basle Banking Model Created the Banking Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

“Originate to Distribute” - In an attempt to comprehend the current "credit crisis" I decided to try to investigate its underlying causes. To my dismay I discovered that the situation did not come about by accident but was actually conceived and planned by the International Banking Fraternity in Basel, Switzerland, in 1998.

Systemic Failure of the United States- Game Over / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are in historically unprecedented times. The foundation is being laid for a default of USTreasurys in the wake of the greatest regulatory failure in modern history, and the collapse of the US financial system. Anyone who cannot see that suffers from poor vision, chronic nostalgia, low mental wattage, a paycheck from Wall Street, a post in financial press media, or owning an Economics advanced degree. So many changes come with each passing day, not week, that it boggles the mind. Many of us predicted $100 updays for gold, and we almost saw one. The wheels came off the US financial wagon long ago, but only now that fact is being recognized. The monetization largesse finally has gone beyond the corrupt bailouts of fraud kings on Wall Street.

The Real Reason for the Global Financial Crisis…the Story No One’s Talking About / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Are you shell-shocked? Are you wondering what's really going on in the market? The truth is probably more frightening than even your worst fears. And yet, you won't hear about it anywhere else because “they” can't tell you. “They” are the U.S. Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury Department, and they can't tell you what's really going on because there's nothing they can do about it, except what they've been trying to do – add liquidity.

Central Banks Swapping Bad Debt for Cash / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Monetize labor, monetize stocks, monetize the farmers, monetize real estate..."

DAMNED IF THEY DO , damned if they don't, politicians the world over are looking pretty sheepish right now. Nationalizing failed banks, mortgage lenders and insurance firms hardly makes for a strong election pitch. It won't do much to coax fresh risk capital into shoring up financial balance-sheets, either.

Drowning Fed Swimming Against the Credit Crisis Tide / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: If there's one lesson you can take away from this financial crisis, it's this: Whenever the U.S. Federal Reserve squares off against the financial markets, it ends up as the loser.

In recent weeks, I've written several articles suggesting that the credit crisis isn't over and detailed the three indicators that led me to this conclusion - despite what the politicians, the pundits and all the other so-called "experts" would have you believe.

Precarious Global Financial Position Set to Worsen / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

Despite the incessant, nauseating calls for a bottom in real estate and banks, financial firms now find themselves in their most vulnerable conditions since the credit crisis began last summer. Just this week alone we were given three data points that help underscore just how precarious a situation these companies are in.

No Bailout for Lehman as Fed Awakens to Bond Market Crash Risk / News_Letter / Credit Crisis 2008

By: NewsLetter

The Market Oracle Newsletter September 14th , 2008 Issue #25 Vol. 2

Dear Reader,

My Fridays commentary closed with expectations that the weekend would see the formerly worlds fourth largest investment bank, Lehman's Brothers taken over by one or a consortium of bidders at mere peanuts of its former valuation further sweetened by a healthy subsidy from the US government / central bank. However the noises emanating from Hank Paulson at the US Treasury department over the weekend of having drawn a line against an effective bailout of the bankrupt investment bank, this will not live up to bidder expectations of providing tens of billions of tax payers money so as to enable a relatively risk free takeover by other banks, this therefore results in suitors in advanced talks such as Barclays now declaring their withdrawal from a possible weekend bid for the bank and indicates that Lehman's is now heading directly towards bankruptcy.

Hedge Funds Crash Halifax, HBOS Rescued by Lloyds TSB / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHedge funds over the last 3 days have been in relentless pursuit of Britain's biggest mortgage bank, Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) as the next bank to be pushed over the credit crisis and housing bear market cliff, amidst an atmosphere of global defaults in the wake of Lehman's collapse on Sunday. In emergency action both sanctioned and sponsored by the Bank of England saw Lloyds TSB step in to buy the Bank before the Government was forced to step in and rescue the bank much as happened following the Northern Rock bust in September 2007. Only at that time the Bank of England in a huge unforgivable blunder that destroyed much of the central banks credibility, PREVENTED Lloyds TSB from taking over Northern Rock.

Financial Markets Fear and Uncertainty Remain After AIG Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The U.S. government seized control of American International Group Inc. -- one of the world's biggest insurers -- in an $85 billion deal that signaled the intensity of its concerns about the danger a collapse could pose to the financial system. The step marks a dramatic turnabout for the federal government, which had been strongly resisting overtures from AIG for an emergency loan or some intervention that would prevent the insurer from falling into bankruptcy. Just last weekend, the government essentially pulled the plug on Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., allowing the big investment bank to go under instead of giving it financial support."

Surviving the Credit Crisis Chaos / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week when I wrote, “ Extraordinary Measures Today, a Financial Funeral Tomorrow ,” I didn't literally think that the funeral would actually occur ‘tomorrow'. Someone started the financial Armageddon clock when the ratings agencies downgraded AIG this evening and the Fed told AIG that they were on their own to raise capital. It was reported on CNBC that they have until Wednesday to secure $75 billion or risk being forced to declare bankruptcy--setting off the most nightmarish of scenarios.

Wall Street's business model is broken. The high stakes game of Russian Roulette which Wall Street never seemed to lose, is taking them down one by one. Commercial banks aren't in much better shape either. In fact, the business model of the entire financial system is broken. And the pain is only going to get worse.

The Fall of Lehman and the Terrible Lessons of Bear Stearns / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe weekend has brought us events that can only be described in large, over-the-top terms. The Fed agreeing to take equity on its balance sheet? How bad can things really be? Clearly much worse than most people thought last Friday. Moral Hazard has been re-introduced as Lehman is allowed to go down. I will admit to being surprised. I thought Paulson and Bernanke would put it in the too big too fail category. I think they did the right thing by refusing taxpayer money for a bailout, but it is clearly going to roil the credit markets for weeks and months. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.
