Credit Crunch Back in Action / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Regent_Markets

After taking some time off between Christmas and New Year, the credit crunch was well and truly back in action last week. Fears over further banking problems and sovereign debt downgrades for the likes of Ireland and Greece surfaced last month, but until now, these fears have merely been simmering in the background. Last week, the heat was once again turned up, and major fault lines are once again running through the global economy.

Global Banking Crisis Worsens as Bailout Capital Exceeds Net Worth of Banks / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBBC News: US banking giants in tie-up deal
“Struggling US banking giant Citigroup and its rival Morgan Stanley have agreed a deal which sees the tie-up of their brokerage operations. Morgan Stanley is paying Citigroup $2.7 billion for a 51% stake in the joint venture while Citigroup will have a 49% stake.

“Observers say the deal showed how much Citigroup wanted to slim down its operations and build up cash reserves. It received the largest government bail-out of any US bank last year.

Deflation? Stimulus? Deleveraging? Recession? Soft Depression? / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

  • Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Endgame
  • Employment Numbers Are Worse Than Posted
  • Aye, Captain, I'm Giving Her All I've Got!
  • Problem #1: Deflation
  • Problem #2: Pushing on a String
  • The Muddle Through Middle

Deflation? Stimulus? Deleveraging? Recession? A soft depression? A return to a bull market? With all that is going on, how does it all end up? When we get to where we are going, where will we be? In chess, the endgame refers to the stage of the game when there are few pieces left on the board. The line between middlegame and endgame is often not clear, and may occur gradually or with the quick exchange of a few pairs of pieces. The endgame, however, tends to have different characteristics from the middlegame, and the players have correspondingly different strategic concerns. And in the current economic endgame, your strategy needs to consist of more than hope for a renewed bull market.

Financial Black Holes Destroying Capital / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: When I was a kid, black holes fascinated me. The idea that you could have an area of space so massive … so dense … that it could suck in and absorb ANYTHING that got too close — even light — seemed ludicrous. Like pure science fiction. But they're real.

These days, black holes aren't so fascinating. But unfortunately, they are very, very real. And they keep popping up throughout the financial sector …

Credit Where Credit is Due / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week, in a speech before the London School of Economics, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke offered a perverse economic theory in his quest to gather support for never-ending Wall Street bailouts; "This disparate treatment, unappealing as it is, appears unavoidable. Our economic system is critically dependent on the free flow of credit, and the consequences for the broader economy of financial instability are thus powerful and quickly felt." In other words, credit is the lifeblood of our economy, and the continued operation of credit providers is an issue of national security.

Confidence is the Problem Not Simply Deflation or Inflation! / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnalysts always trust figures and rely on them completely. Next they support forecasts backed by numbers too. All of us are vulnerable to reports backed by figures from reputable firms or forecasters. But a glance back over the last 18 months shows just how far off the mark such reports were. When we look at the problems facing the globe, we factor in reports of heavy deflation unfolding, followed by unquantifiable inflation. We receive reports of economic stimulation figures that stagger the imagination, that are bound to turn the globe back to vigorous growth and quickly?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCharles Darwin's theory was survival of the fittest. The Fed's policy is Survival Of The Weakest . Rather than let the weak go under, the Fed tries to prop them up, draining resources from the strong.

Capitalism At Risk: Live Free Or Die / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve (Fed) has gone beyond playing with fire, and may have indeed set the house on fire. It's one thing to push interest rates to near zero to stimulate the economy; it's another to “ monetize the debt ” by printing money to buy government debt. In recent weeks, the Fed has broken outside even those boundaries and become actively engaged in managing the private sector beyond the core banking system. Worse still, the steps taken may be difficult to reverse and as such may shape the U.S. economy for a long time.

Credit Crisis Panic Measure Tax Savings to Force People to Spend / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: MoneyWeek

Punishing savers is no way to help the economy. Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIntriguing new ideas about how to deal with the credit crisis are coming thick and fast. Never mind printing money – we're now seeing real radicalism in the pages of our newspapers. Last week, we saw calls in The Times to tax savings to force people to spend or invest, rather than just sit on their money. And elsewhere, two former Bank of England economists suggested that the Government buy the homes of those about to suffer repossession and rent them back to them.

How to Rebuild the Shattered Credit System / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpen The Mint To Gold! - Could a Private Firm Force the Government to Do It?

People ask: "Isn't the Mint already open to gold, producing Gold Eagles and Buffaloes?" Opening the Mint to gold has a technical meaning, namely, opening it to the free and unlimited coinage of gold on private account. The Gold Eagles and Buffaloes are produced on Treasury account in limited quantities and sold at a premium as souvenir coins. It is a ploy to show that gold coins would just not circulate as money. Well, they would if there was no premium and the market was saturated.

2009 Money Printing Risks Igniting Hyper-inflationary Spiral / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2009 has certainly started off with a bang. While the financial markets have been rather quiet, underlying economic fundamentals continue to deteriorate. Unfortunately, the rubber-stamped response to this deterioration has been nothing short of more of the same. More debt, more deficit spending, and more subterfuge to insist that it just isn’t so. The monetary stops have been pulled as the Federal government has gone public with its intentions. The biggest problem with this is that what we’re hearing now is what was going on six months ago. The idea of persistent trillion dollar deficits has been firmly planted with absolutely no mention of an exit strategy or how the Congress is planning on paying back these exorbitant amounts of borrowing.
