I Apologize to David Viniar and Goldman's Lawyers and Call for More Regulation of Goldman Sachs / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Janet_Tavakoli

I apologize to Goldman Sachs’ CFO David Viniar. He did not lie when he said that Goldman’s direct credit exposure with AIG was hedged in the event AIG collapsed. He only addressed direct AIG credit risk.1 On September 16, 2008, he may merely have been unimaginative about risk to Goldman as a result of AIG’s potential bankruptcy partly brought on by stress created by billions in collateral payments already made—and the billions in additional collateral owed—to Goldman Sachs (and other CDS counterparties). Systemic risk is a matter of public interest. Viniar apparently did not intentionally give the impression that Goldman was disinterested when it came to AIG’s bailout.

States Should Cut Wall Street Out! Own Your Own Bank / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePouring money into the private banking system has only fixed the economy for bankers and the wealthy; it has not done much to address either the fundamental problem of unemployment or the debt trap so many Americans find themselves in.

President Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan has so far failed to halt the growth of unemployment: 2.7 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus plan began. California has lost 336,400 jobs. Arizona has lost 77,300. Michigan has lost 137,300. A total of 49 states and the District of Columbia have all reported net job losses.

Reviving the Economy with Publicly Owned Banks / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit crunch is getting worse on Main Street, despite a Wall Street bailout that is now in the trillions of dollars. The Federal Reserve's charts show that "base money" is rapidly expanding - meaning coins, paper money, and commercial banks' reserves with the central bank. But the money isn't making it to where it needs to go to stimulate economic growth: into the bank accounts of American businesses and consumers. The Fed has been pumping out money to the banks, and their reserves have been growing at unprecedented rates; but the money supply in the real economy has been declining.

Truth Behind the Financial Crisis May Lead to Another Crash / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam K. Black - professor of economics and the senior regulator during the S & L crisis - says that that the government's entire strategy now - as during the S&L crisis - is to cover up how bad things are ("the entire strategy is to keep people from getting the facts").

Indeed, as I have previously documented, 7 out of the 8 giant, money center banks went bankrupt in the 1980's during the "Latin American Crisis", and the government's response was to cover up their insolvency.

Global Financial Crisis Polarising Market Perspectives- Credit and Credibility Chapter3 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Richard_Karn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChapter 3:     “May you live in interesting times”

The global financial crisis has wrought such extensive damage that it has polarized market perspectives like nothing in our experience.  The two prevailing camps may be categorized as those subscribing to variations on either the ‘green shoots’ or the ‘Dawning of the Asian Century’ themes and those believing the lull that has existed since early March is but the calm during the eye of the storm and global markets are in for a fresh, possibly more severe battering.

Fractional Reserve Banking System Basis of Bankster Fraud / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe heart of the modern monetary system is fractional reserve banking. This system is based on fraud. At the very heart of the modern economy is fraud – fraud on a gigantic scale.

What is the nature of this fraud? Counterfeiting. Banks are government-licensed institutions that issue bogus IOUs. Because these IOUs function as money, they are counterfeit money. This is the heart, mind, and soul of all modern banking.

The Securitization Boondoggle / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe relentless financialization of the economy has resulted in a hybrid-system of credit expansion which depends on pools of loans sliced-and-diced into tranches and sold into the secondary market to yield-seeking investors. The process is called securitization and it lies at the heart of the current financial crisis. Securitization markets have grown exponentially over the last decade as foreign capital has flooded Wall Street due to the ballooning current account deficit.

This dramatic call was issued by Birgitta Jónsdóttir, the chairman of the parliamentary faction of The Movement in the Icelandic parliament, the Althing. Birgitta Jónsdóttir was speaking during a special session of the Althing called to address the rapidly deteriorating economic and financial position of Iceland, one year after the collapse of the three hot-money offshore banks, Landsbanki, Kaupthing, and Glitnir.
