A Year on From Financial System Collapse, Something is Not Quite Right / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBILL MOYERS: Welcome to the Journal.

Something's not right here. One year after the great collapse of our financial system, Wall Street is back on top while our politicians dither. As for health care reform, you're about to be forced to buy insurance from companies whose stock is soaring, and that's just dandy with the White House.

Response to Goldman Sachs Expose / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Janet_Tavakoli

The New York Times published a Christmas Eve expose of Goldman Sachs’s so-called “Abacus” synthetic collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). They were created with credit derivatives instead of cash securities. Goldman used credit derivatives to create short bets that gain in value when CDOs lose value. Goldman did this for both protection and profit and marketed the idea to hedge funds.

Credit Card Law, Benefits and Fallout / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is probably very appropriate as we close in on the traditional climax of consumer largesse to discuss the backdrop of this year’s consumption binge (or lack thereof). So lavish has spending historically been between the day after Thanksgiving and the end of the year that it has become a month that retailers cannot do without. They’ve even gone as far as to name the days, coining the terms ‘Black Friday’ and more recently ‘Cyber Monday’.

The Credit Crisis is Not Over / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we look back and this year comes to an end we find two plus years of failure. Even government admits to 1-1/2 years of negative growth - a sorry record after having poured trillions of dollars into the economy. The recent 3rd quarter results supposedly broke that record. If it did it was the result of government stimulus and Fed monetization. If you look back further you will find a stock market that rallied 54% just to reflect the highs of 1999. House prices have decline to 1990s levels as well. Both markets, which were bubbles, next year will fall again. Americans opened their markets to products of Communist China’s slave labor and China became the world’s biggest exporter. Via free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing, transnational conglomerates have stolen America’s destiny and handed it to China. This is what corporatist fascism is all about.

The Greatest Outpouring of Money and Credit from Central Banks and Governments in History / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Bob_Chapman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past two years have seen the greatest outpouring of money and credit from central banks and governments in history. In most countries interest rates cannot fall much lower being presently under 1% or close to zero. You might call this an attempt at fiat money recovery. As a result of pump priming for the past six months or more investors have returned to the same gambling and risk taking they engaged in before, the losses of which caused the world economy to come to the edge of the financial abyss. All sectors of investment are again affected by a casino mentality.

Financial Crisis 2008-2009, The Seeds of the Credit Crunch Part 2 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Akhil_Khanna

Continued from Part 1

Effects on Corporates

The corporates had taken on huge debts during the boom times to expand their capacities to meet the huge quantum of orders they were receiving. They had retained manpower at very high employee costs to meet their targets and offered huge incentives and bonuses to the employees. They were caught unawares with the sudden drop in orders. Their capacity utilization began to drop substantially. They started to go back on or reduce their commitments to purchase the goods being manufactured in Asia.

Are the Democrats Fighting the Banks? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow pathetic. President Obama sat at a table surrounded by super rich bankers, pleading with them to lend money to small businesses and workers. The media mislabeled Obama’s groveling as “encouraging,” “imploring,” and “pressing,” but a man who refuses to take action is powerless; and powerless people can only beg.

Global Financial Crisis, No Bailout Will Stop It / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSometimes, a bailout is not enough.

When Dubai World black swanned global investors last month with what amounts to be a reported $80 Billion in debt liabilities, it sent shivers down the spine of many a financial manager and stock trader. For those who were paying attention, Dubai’s troubled assets were no surprise, it was simply a matter of time. Oft repeated by contrarian analysts and investors like Dr. Doom Marc Faber, Gerald Celente, Jim Rogers, and Karl Denninger, the mathematical certainty of the economic crisis would play out - eventually.

American Fractionalized Banking Madness / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome analysts see the outlook for America's banks to be bright for the coming year; just earlier this year the financial sector looked to be toast. Those who follow the industry at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods believe all will be well for at least the banking behemoths. As a sign that things are looking up, Charlotte banking giant Bank of America (BofA) just managed to issue $20 billion in stock to help repay the $45 billion in Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) funds the government infused into the bank during the financial meltdown a year ago.

130 Bank Failures and Complacency in the Markets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Andrew_Abraham

This last week the Fed closed 6 more banks making total to 130 bank failures since the crisis started. There are strong expectations that even more small and regional banks will fail. Just these 6 banks cost the FDIC $2.3 Billion dollars.I believe there is something like 500 banks on the FDIC watch list. However all this time there is complacency in the markets. Bad loans are still out there…you name it from credit card debt to residential housing to a more menacing threat the commercial real estate markets.
