United States Empire Built on False Prosperity Collapsing / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKEEP ON ROCKIN IN THE FREE WORLD - The American Republic is 226 years old. The Roman Empire lasted 13 centuries before collapsing. The Roman emperors attempted to stave off the collapse by providing bread and circuses to the masses. Feeding Christians to lions worked only for so long. I picture Caligula “Mad Money” Cramer exhorting the masses that the worst was over and not to worry about the Vandals and the Huns. Nero “Mustard Seed” Kudlow probably saw a recovery on the horizon as Barbarians were at the gates of the city. Cleopatra “Money Honey” Bartiromo was proclaiming that the stupid masses didn’t know what was best for the system. Caesar “Glimmers of Hope” Obama was sure that if they just distributed more bread and added a few more circuses, things would improve by the Ides of March.

Financial Crisis Opportunities Amidst The Greatest Wealth Transfer In History / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn G7 capitals and financial centers, Public Servants and their elite Banksters - both central and money center banks and investment brokers - nervously tell their clients to wait for the inevitable recoveries, along with a chorus from the elite media stooges to fool the citizens and investors of their cluelessness.  Neither the Chicago School nor Keynes can explain what is unfolding, and in the Austrian School everything is and has been predictable.  Why are the first two considered mainstream?  Because in both schools of thought GOVERNMENT is the answer rather than the problem.  For the mainstream, the problems can always be solved by borrow, print, lend and spend.

The Fed: Our Next Troubled Biggest Bank? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Mike Larson writes: The Federal Reserve is watching the backs of U.S. banks. But sometimes I wonder, “Who’s watching the Fed’s back? Is the Fed our next troubled bank?”

You see, all of this garbage paper that’s going bad — the troubled residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS), the commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS), the asset backed securities (ABS), the Fannie Mae bonds, the corporate loans, and so on — hasn’t just gone

Financial System Still Struggling to Gain a Firm Footing / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBased upon the earnings of the banks so far, it looks as though the TARP program is working. Provide banks a whole bunch of money and create a very wide spread between short and long rates and even the less than stellar banks should make money. However, with much of the gains coming from the benevolent government aid (that is not likely to be repeated in subsequent quarters), the above average (and positive) earnings may be nothing more than a one-quarter phenomenon. There was additional evidence this past week that the economy is still deteriorating.

Bankrupt Banks to be Hit by New Wave of Losses / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne must give a tip of the hat to the Wall Street conmen for engineering a reasonably robust stock rally. The Dow and S&P were led by financials. The Financial Times out of London claims ‘no real money’ was behind the stock rally of over 20%. They must mean huge short covering, enhanced by pressure tactics from Wall Street brokerages themselves. They must mean Working Group For Financial Markets putting to work some of their ‘Black Bag’ money. They must mean influenced arbitrage games from preferred versus common shares, which harmed the public but enriched the insiders. Amazing how a better financial journal on US topics comes from outside the Untied States.

Greedy Banks and Politicians Partners in Financial Crisis Crime / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRightly, the students of Austrian Economics have laid the blame for the current economic crisis squarely on the doorstep of the Keynesian policies of governments and central banks. However, in this case, there are other culprits involved, most notably the former titans of financial services. During this decade, major international money central banks from Wall Street to London and even to Zurich displayed unimaginable greed, reckless risk taking and gross negligence. Depositors, borrowers and shareholders should be questioning whether any major financial institution will ever again be worthy of their trust.

All the Banks Pass their Stress Tests, Surprise, Surprise, Surprise / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Paul_J_Nolte

I can just hear Gomer Pyle crying out “surprise surprise surprise”. All the banks passed their stress test. What remains an open question is just how stressful was the test – a stroll about the park (benign economic growth with very little defaults) or something to get the heart racing. Best guess, based upon the results – a lap around the kitchen table. Another big surprise was Wells Fargo’s earnings report – well above expectations, however little background as to quality of loans/balance sheet and how much bad debt is still hanging around.

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's time to breakup Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and for that matter any bank or holding company deemed too big to fail. It's not just the "too big to fail" hazard that is troubling, it's also the power these corporations have and the potential to abuse that power that is also troubling.
