Financial Oligarch Power Raping Greece / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn February 12, Greece's banker controlled parliament passed sweeping austerity measures on top of multiple previous rounds.

New ones include:

sacking 15,000 public workers in 2012 and 150,000 by 2015;
slashing private sector wages by 20%;
lowering monthly minimum wages from 750 to 600 euros;
cutting fast disappearing monthly unemployment benefits from 460 to 360 euros; and
reducing pensions many Greeks need to survive by 15%.

Greece From Despair to Resistance: Test Site for Neoliberal Social Engineering / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePanagiotis Sotiris writes: On Sunday 12 February 2012 the people of Greece, in demonstrations and street fights all over the country expressed in a massive, collective and heroic way their anger against the terms of the new loan agreement dictated by the EU-ECB-IMF ‘troika’ (European Union, European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund). Workers, youth, students filled the streets with rage, defying the extreme aggression by police forces, setting another example of struggle and solidarity.

The Euro Zone and the Crisis of Sovereign Debt / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe creation of the euro zone may have given participants one currency, but it created other problems as well. One interest rate was supposed to fit all. Those sovereigns on the financial periphery of the 17 nations found low interest rates too good to be true. As a result, the borrowed funds they shouldn’t have borrowed to finance current debt, was thrown off by the economy. During the 1990s we wrote that one interest rate for all would destroy the euro, but as usual no one wanted to listen. The reason was simple, each nation was and is at a different stage of development and a nation paying 2% rates could now borrow at 4%, which is a giant difference. As debt grew the credit crisis occurred and the rules changed externally. As rates rose sovereigns got into more and more trouble.

In the Wake of Davos: "Strong Economic Medicine" for the European Union / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday from the Bilderberg conclave at Davos, appointed European Central Bank President, Mario Draghi proclaimed that Europe had averted financial disaster and cited the improvement in euro zone markets in recent weeks. He said it was the ECB’s duty to guard against deflation as well as inflation. The fact of the matter is that he and his friends at the Fed arranged a currency swap of $1 trillion of which the ECB dispersed $660 billion to 523 EU banks, at 1% interest for three years. He also cut interest rates twice and extended loans for 1 to 3 years. Mr. Draghi could be expected to take the easy Anglo-American way out. He is fully Illuminati trained and that is where his orders emanate from.

Germany's Role in Europe and the European Debt Crisis / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe German government proposed last week that a European commissioner be appointed to supplant the Greek government. While phrasing the German proposal this way might seem extreme, it is not unreasonable. Under the German proposal, this commissioner would hold power over the Greek national budget and taxation. Since the European Central Bank already controls the Greek currency, the euro, this would effectively transfer control of the Greek government to the European Union, since whoever controls a country's government expenditures, tax rates and monetary policy effectively controls that country. The German proposal therefore would suspend Greek sovereignty and the democratic process as the price of financial aid to Greece.

Merkel Casts Doubt on Saving Greece, ECB insists on Profits on Greek Bonds / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmazingly, smack in the midst of deal to save Greece from bankruptcy, the ECB not only insists on taking no losses on Greek bonds its holds, it wants a profit on them because it bought them at what seemed at the time to be a substantial discount. The discount was imaginary. The bonds were trading at 7% at the time.

The Demise of State Sovereignty: Pressures on the Euro Amidst Rising Debt Levels / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe announced our belief a few weeks ago that the Fed loan to the ECB could with fractional banking be $10 trillion. This past week we found that Credit Suisse shares our ideas as well. We believe that what this move by the Fed and the ECB is telling us that this is probably it. We also ask again how can the banks in the LTRP repay the funds in a timely manner? No plan has been presented before or since, there is no plan. Again, just throw money at the problem. The only player really capable of saving Europe is Germany and they would destroy themselves in the process. Everyone should have seen this coming but no one did except a handful of insiders. The resultant use of funds since the ECB distribution is hardly even mentioned in the media. It is a big dark secret.

Super Mario Draghi and the ECB Debt Crisis Impact on Gold and Stocks / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: HRA_Advisory

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are extremely comfortable that our prognosticating for 2012 may or may not work out.  Which puts us in the same camp as most others.  That said, a contrarian turn ahead of possible normalizing of the debt issues still with us that we suggested in December does seem to be gaining ground in the market.  With that should come a greater focus on basic technical indicators like metal stockpile changes.  We note small copper stocks on page 4, but will point out here these are focused by direction over weeks.  Don’t get hung up on day to day changes.  Both bull and bear issues in this market are really year to year, which means looking for value and for sustainability.

The EU Gives a Lesson in How Not to Restructure Sovereign Debt / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: David_Urban

Debt yields appear to be coming off with the exception of Greece, where the EU is now attempting to strong arm creditors once again with respect to the interest rate on the New Greek debt.

What the EU failed to realize is in that their rush to rescue the banking sector and bail out Greece they have created a bifurcated market in European sovereign debt.  The Greek bailout will only apply to private holders of Greek debt, excluding pension funds, the EU and IMF from the bailout.

Debt End Game, Europe Staring into the Abyss, and Very Negative Unintended Consequences / Economics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope's leaders are committed to keeping both the euro and the eurozone as it is. But for it to do so, everything must change, as the wonderful quote from the 1958 Italian novel suggests. This is no easy task, as no one wants a change that will impact them negatively; and there is no change that will allow things to stay the same that does not impact all severely, as we will see. In the third part of a continuing series, we look at the actual options that are available on the menu of choices, or as one group called it, the menu of pain. I offer some guideposts that we should watch for along the way, and end by offering a suggestion as to what Europe should do. As has been the case in this series, I do my best to offend everyone at some point. If by some small, unintended oversight I do not, then wait another week, I will get to you. What else are friends for?

To Solve Europe's Debt Crisis You Must Solve Three Problems, Else its the End of Europe / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the interesting things about being in Hong Kong is that I get to see the weekend edition of the Financial Times 12 hours early. And the headlines were not all that pleasant. As I promised last week, we will cast our eyes to Europe and ponder what is in store for Europe for the year and the next five years. And what do we read on page 2? The "ECB raps revisions to draft a fiscal pact." Seems they feel there are too many loopholes, which will make the document meaningless … somewhat like the treaty they have now. And we further learn that "Greek default threat grows as talks falter." Seems there is a lack of agreement on how much of a haircut the investors ought to take, and the Greeks don't want to guarantee any future debt, just in case they need to default some more in the future. But they do want the €15 billion they need to keep the debt machine running for a few more months.

Burning Eurozone, All is Quiet on the Eastern Front? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 had been touted as the year that everything would change. Massive paradigm shifts would rock our world and many a prophecy was made regarding financial crises, currency crises, wars, rumors of wars, and there was even one fellow who said the world itself would end, although he later retracted his predictions, but not before his followers had spent their life savings putting up billboards. Such hysteria is certainly the hallmark of times such as these, but we have to keep in mind that just because some of the predicted events didn’t happen yet, we’re a long, long way from being out of the woods. There is an old saying that if you do what you’ve always done; you’re going to get what you’ve always gotten. If we continue to sow the seeds of false fixes and faulty economics, we’re going to continue to reap financial and economic crisis. It really is that simple.
