Restoring a Viable System of Bank Credit / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mike_Whitney

Fed chief Ben Bernanke is in a bit of a bind. He's being asked to restore a system for credit expansion which collapsed more than two years ago and has shown no sign of life ever since. During the boom years, securitization accounted for more than 40 percent of the credit flowing into the economy. No more. When two Bear Stearns hedge funds defaulted in July 2007, the system crashed as investors of all stripes backed away from complex, illiquid assets.

U.S. Financial System Systemic Failure Approaches / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDebate stirs on whether the financial structure of the USEconomy is broken irreparably. Debate stirs on whether actions taken in the last year or two have put the nation on a path that can even achieve stability, let alone recovery. Debate stirs on whether a pernicious and not so secret syndicate has taken control of the USGovt financial ministries, let alone be removed. Debate stirs on whether lack of US Federal Reserve audits and disclosure of their accounting is integral to sustaining the syndicate control as well as its probable egregious fraud. Debate stirs whether the nationalizations have actually enabled adoption of wrecked assets, have concealed executive ransacking, and have buried massive counterfeit of bonds.

Deferring Financial Disaster / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThose who read the contrarian and alternative financial commentators may well be forgiven for wondering why the financial doomsday oft predicted hasn’t quite materialized. The financial crisis heralded by the crash in October 2008, preceded by the demise of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, among others, by all accounts was the tip of the iceberg and the advent of the Great Depression of our age.

Financial Markets Driven by Uncertainty / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI can’t think of a better way to describe the last 2 years than as times of great uncertainty. Not only did we have two near catastrophic banking failures worldwide, but we also have the ever present Iran Israel nuclear contention. The USD held reasonably well during this period, although it’s weaker. In any case, gold has held up amazingly well over the period of the last two years too, in fact is at highs. What else is except US T bonds?

The Global Financial Crisis Explained- Credit and Credibility Part2 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Richard_Karn

Continued from Part1 - Consequently, the ETR believes a return to the gold standard, or some rules-based derivation thereof, is highly unlikely without either a grassroots US taxpayer revolt or an utter collapse of the fiat dollar precipitated by global consensus to end its use as the world’s reserve currency. Neither appears likely at this juncture.  The groundswell of popular dissent needed to achieve the former seems to have been largely bred out of Americans over the last generation, replaced by a distracted, self-absorbed apathy that seeks easy salvation in a president that emulates the wrong Roosevelt: what we need is a trust-buster carrying a big stick, not an interventionist appeaser masquerading as an eco-warrior.

Bailed Out Banks Not Lending, Sitting on Tax Payers Cash / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England has both pumped hundreds of billions of tax payer cash into the bankrupt banking sector and cut interest rates to near zero (0.5%) to enable the banks to have funds available to lend out to the wider economy. However the banks instead of lending this money out are in effect sitting on tax payer cash with a view to earning interest on the money at the Bank of England which is illustrated by a sharp drop in the interbank rate towards the base rate as the following graph illustrates.

If Credit is Not Created Out of Excess Reserves, What Does That Mean? / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe've all been taught that banks first build up deposits, and then extend credit and loan out their excess reserves.

A Radical Solution for America's Insolvent Financial System / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mansoor_H_Khan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe core problem of the United States' banking system (and maybe the world's banking system) is not liquidity but insolvency. The liabilities of the United States' banking system exceed the value of its assets. The issue is not only the toxic assets (toxic mortgage backed securities, toxic commercial real estate loans, sub-prime mortgages, alt-A loans, adjustable loans likely to go bust, increase in prime mortgage default rates, etc) but also off-balance sheet liabilities (such as expected huge unaccounted for future derivatives losses).

The Looming Global Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat do you do after you have zero interest rates and you have flooded the world with money and credit?

The answer is you attempt to fight off higher interest rates and see if you can dodge the inflation bubble that follows. The commitment for this current fiasco to save the world’s Illuminist banks has already caused an official debt responsibility for the US of more than $23 trillion or about 40% of world GDP. That is staggering and it is official. We wonder what the real figure is? It is also wise to remember that the Federal Reserve, and other reserve banks worldwide, all international, are responsible for the carnage we are witnessing.

"[E]normous dosages of monetary medicine continue to be administered and, before long, we will need to deal with their side effects.

Lehman Bankruptcy and Engineered Financial Armageddon Real Story / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring the last few days the mainstream media has been obsessed by Lehman's as though it caused the financial crisis, when all Lehman's was one crack in the credit crisis dam that was destined to burst following the August 2007 interbank market freeze when the game was up on the U.S. mortgage backed securities valuations that bank staff had inflated so as to bank huge bonuses on fictitious profits. From then began a process of ever larger financial collapses, starting in the UK with Northern Rock Bank, which I just so happened to warn of as having a high probability of going bust some 4 weeks before the event. Though of course at the time I had to mask my language lest I open myself upto legal problems.
