Responsible New York Banking / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFounded in 1882, the Bank of Cattaraugus (B of C) exception proves the rule. Located in Western New York, it's miles from Wall Street's cesspool of fraud, market manipulation, grand theft, bailouts, and influence peddling in league with corrupt politicians getting generous campaign contribution bribes in return.

B of C calls itself "one of the oldest and strongest banks in New York state. (It's) a full-service, independent bank that provides financial services with a hometown touch. Personal, friendly service is our signature trademark, and we're dedicated to give back to the communities we service."

After Superscience We Get Superfinance  / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSuperfinance is already with us, since at latest 2008, but we can expect that so-called « Superscience » will be edging back to join it after its most recent place in the media limelight during the 1995-2000 period: Superscience was turfed out by climate change, peak oil, green energy and sustainability all of which are now themselves struggling to stay on the radar screen. Unlike Superfinance and the Big New Things of the past 5 years however, Superscience goes back a long way, in fact to the Great Exhibitions around Europe in the 19th century. At the time the populace was told to think railways, iron ships, electric lamps and machine guns would give them total power and make all the world their own. Like they say: Guns, germs and steel. Coming next, we have a big new slot for Superfinance operated just like the Superscience theme.

Bankers Rule the World, The Network of Global Corporate Control / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBankers rule the world. A new Swiss Federal Institute of Technology study says so. Written by Stefania Vitali, James Glattfelder and Stefano Battiston, it's titled "The network of global corporate control," saying:

"We find that transnational corporations from a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic 'super-entity' that raises new important issues both for researches and policy makers."

Rehypothecation Is An Old Story: MF Global's Is a Different Story of Filched Funds / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday Congress held another hearing on MF Global. One representative seemed to suggest that MF Global's movement of money to the UK may have somehow been allowable under Rule 1.25. It was as if a Member of Congress had become Corzine's PR flack, an apologist for Corzine, and was trying to create a false excuse for Corzine. Jon Corzine has been a big Congressional fundraiser and bundler, and it is interesting to see how cheaply some Members of Congress can be bought.

Europe Bank Run Underway, Why You Should be Worried / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: On Wednesday, Fitch Ratings Inc. downgraded its credit ratings on five of Europe's biggest banks, and while that decision made headlines, it's not the most important story to come out of Europe this week.

The real story, which the mainstream media is neglecting, is that there are signs of an underground run on Europe's banks.

Subject Banks to the Free Market or Turn Them into Utilities / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Let's face it. Banking is a protected industry. It's a government-coddled industry.

The problem with that is, banks really aren't subject to free market forces that would naturally eliminate insolvent and inefficient institutions. The result is more bad banking.

Re-Hypothecation ABC in Gold and Securities Markets: What You Need to Know / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKevin Brekke, Casey Research writes: A new polysyllabic term has entered the Wall Street lexicon and is sweeping through the investing world like a brush fire through a dry canyon: "hypothecation." With its connection to the MF Global bankruptcy and aftermath, it engenders the kind of fear a homeowner might feel while monitoring the approaching flames.

The rise of hypothecation as the lead suspect in the MF Global tragedy has caused a fair bit of confusion about what, exactly, it is – and is not. Proving the idiom that nature abhors a vacuum, the blogosphere has weighed in with all manner of explanations, many of which have been less than accurate.

Credit Crisis part 2 or another reprieve? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent investor disappointment is being blamed on the Federal Reserve and the fact that it didn’t announce another round of stimulus at its latest meeting. Recent market action can also be chalked up to a continuation of the lingering disappointment from last week’s EU summit meeting. Participants are upset that the European Central Bank (ECB) refuses to engage in a major bond buying program to provide liquidity and bolster investor confidence.

True to form, Colbert’s Repor didn’t talk about the big problem. His story, ha ha ha, was about a butter shortage in Norway.  Talk about going from the obscure to the ridiculous.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe short answer is 'maybe.' It is more of a buyer beware situation than most had thought, and still think.

It is nice to see someone in the mainstream media addressing this situation intelligently and without making an apology for what is apparently a criminal act and surely an egregious abuse of the public trust.

The European Central Bank Provides Temporary Support to Banks / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Asha_Bangalore

The European Central Bank (ECB) provides temporary support to the economic bloc with its actions today. The ECB lowered the policy rate 25bps to 1.00%, expanded the range of eligible collateral for loans extended to banks, increased the maturity of loans to 3 years from the current maturity of 13 months to alleviate funding problems, and lowered reserve requirements to 1.0% from 2.0%. These steps are necessary measures to ease pressures in the banking sector and prevent a severe credit crunch.
