Homeowners Rebellion against Wall Street, Axing the Bankers Money Tree / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver 62 million mortgages are now held in the name of MERS, an electronic recording system devised by and for the convenience of the mortgage industry.  A California bankruptcy court, following landmark cases in other jurisdictions, recently held that this electronic shortcut breaks the chain of title, voiding foreclosure.  The logical result could be 62 million homes that are foreclosure-proof.

Rating Agency Feud: S&P vs. Dagong…For Now / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Dian_L_Chu

It all started almost a month ago when Dagong, the largest credit rating agency in China, took on S&P, Moody’s and Fitch.  Dagong issued its first international sovereign risk report on July 11 by giving 27 countries out of the 50 a markedly different rating than the Western big three.

Escaping the Sovereign Debt Trap, The Commonwealth Bank of Australia Remarkable Model / Economics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current credit crisis is basically a capital crisis: at a time when banks are already short of the capital needed to back their loans, capital requirements are being raised.   Nearly a century ago, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia demonstrated that banks do not actually need capital to make loans – so long as their credit is backed by the government.  Denison Miller, the Bank’s first Governor, was fond of saying that the Bank did not need capital because “it is backed by the entire wealth and credit of the whole of Australia.”  With nothing but this national credit power, the Commonwealth Bank funded both massive infrastructure projects and the country’s participation in World War I.

Lloyds TSB £1.6 Billion Tax Payer Funded Profits / Companies / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Eric Daniel's and the rest of the management at Lloyds TSB are patting themselves on the back for having turned last years £4 billion loss into a £1.6 billion profit for the first half of this year. However the whole of LLoyds profits and that of the other reporting banks such as RBS, and Northern Rock are as a consequence of the tax payer bailouts without who's continuing support Lloyds TSB and the other banks would still be bankrupt today.

Can the Fed Successfully Exit Liquidity Flood Policies ? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis recently interviewed macroeconomist Robert Hall for the June issue of its quarterly magazine, The Region. His words on the Federal Reserve's ability to enact an exit strategy to unwind its unconventional policies were clear and sure: "There are two branches to the exit strategy: There's paying interest on reserves, and there's reducing reserves back to normal levels. They're both completely safe, so it's a nonissue."

European Banking Stress Test: Much Ado about Nothing / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday the Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS) revealed the results of its banking sector stress test. The objective of the test, in the CEBS’s dry words, was to “provide policy information for assessing the resilience of the EU banking system to possible adverse economic developments and to assess the ability of banks ( … ) to absorb possible shocks on credit and market risks, including sovereign risks.”

And Dagong's Chairman Guan Jianzhong doesn't think much of his long-established U.S. competitors.

European Bank Stress Test Politicians Desperate to hide the Truth of Insolvent Banking System / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The long waited stress test of the 91 of Europe's largest Banks resulted in just 7 of the smaller regional banks failing the test including one from Germany and Greece, and five in Spain, that require capital injections of just Euros 3.5 billion, which is a drop in the ocean when compared against PIGS sovereign debt of Euros 1.2 trillion, but off course the so called stress test FAILED to test for sovereign debt default.

Switzerland Under Siege, Free Markets May Yet Save the Swiss Franc / Currencies / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEfforts are underway to undermine Switzerland’s rock solid reputation as a safe haven. The alpine nation, famous for its readiness against enemies with citizens storing military assault rifles at their homes, is under attack. The attack, however, comes from one of their own, the guardian of the Swiss franc: the Swiss National Bank (SNB). In any other country, a central bank may have the power to derail the currency; in Switzerland, however, efforts to undermine the franc may be more appropriately characterized by a Don Quixotian battle by a lone warrior, a warrior armed with a license to print money.

The E.U. Banking System Stress Test Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe EU banking system is in big trouble. Many of the Union's largest banks are sitting on hundreds of billions of euros in dodgy sovereign bonds and non performing real estate loans. But writing down their losses will deplete their capital and force them to restructure their debt. So the banks are concealing their losses through accounting sleight-of-hand and by borrowing money from the European Central Bank. This has helped to hide the rot at the heart of the system.

SULTANS OF SWAP: BP Collapse Potentially More Devastating than Lehman! / Companies / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs horrific as the gulf environmental catastrophe is, an even more intractable and cataclysmic disaster may be looming. The yet unknowable costs associated with clean-up, litigation and compensation damages due to arguably the world’s worst environmental tragedy, may be in the process of triggering a credit event by British Petroleum (BP) that will be equally devastating to global over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. The potential contagion may eventually show that Lehman Bros. and Bear Stearns were simply early warning signals of the devastation lurking and continuing to grow unchecked in the $615T OTC Derivatives market.

Eurozone and U.S. LIBOR Interbank Interest Rates Divergence / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Tale of Two Cities - New York vs. Frankfurt - Chart 1 shows the recent behavior of the 3-month interbank loan rates in U.S. dollars and euros. Both in dollar and euro terms, these interest rates began drifting up in the second half of April as the Greek, Portugal and Spain (GPS) sovereign debt challenges came to the fore. If GPS were to default on its sovereign debt, this would have an adverse impact on some European banks. These potential losses for European banks caused interbank lending to "tighten up," thereby driving up interbank loan rates.
