Cashing In On Japan's Debt Conundrum? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Ross, Casey Research writes: On the heels of Fitch's sovereign credit downgrade to A plus (the fifth-highest investment grade), Japan's government debt continues to swell. With its debt at over 200% of its GDP, the Land of the Rising Sun appears to be embarking on a trek into the debt-laden unknown.

Growth in U.S. National Debt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe one inescapable drag on the economy and every American taxpayer or government dependant is the interest obligation paid on the national debt. Indebtedness is nothing new to this country, but the inability to service the public debt stretches over the last half century. This trend is so disturbing that politicians spend every waking hour avoiding the consequences of the ultimate outcome, the demise of the currency. The reserve currency status that has allowed for effortless deficit spending has a day of reckoning. The final collapse of the global empire and superpower will smell more of financial evaporation than of a military defeat.

Espana en Fuego / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat's really left to say about Spain, anymore? This 12th largest economy in the world now finds itself as close to financial meltdown as a country (other than Greece) can get, and it has gotten there by taking the most twisted and shady path that it could find. Ilargi wrote about this shadiness back on April 18 in his article, Spain, Land of Magical Financial Realism. In it, he discussed how the bank bailout fund in Spain was being funded by... the Spanish banks themselves, so as to allow the Spanish government to under-state its actual deficit/GDP ratio. Most of that "money", in turn, came from the ECB LTRO Part Dos, which gave out billions worth of 3-year loans to these banks and, in exchange, encumbered just about ALL of the (already toxic) collateral available in the Spanish banking system.

U.S. Muni Bond Market Debt Default Tsunami / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe front edge of the coming bond default tsunami is clearly visible in our discussion of the burgeoning credit crisis in Europe. Less publicised, but every bit as important, is the debt burden that is smothering U.S. municipalities. CTC warned that muni bond tax-exemptions would "ultimately trap investors into a risky position," and EWFF has continually stated that defaults will rise as cushy municipal pensions and health benefits garden a bigger share of a decreasing tax base.

U.S. Treasury Bond Teetering Tower Of Babel, Fed Stuck At 0% Forever / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Biblical story is told of a tower built ever higher in order to achieve contact with the heavens, lest they be scattered upon the earth. They were scattered when the tower fell. Fast forward to today, where the earth has a multitude of tribes, languages, and several major alphabets. When the Lehman Brothers failure occurred, and the Fannie Mae and AIG activities were to be concealed under court orders, the land turned barren, and a financial plague befell the Western nations led by the United States. They were after all, the keepers of the ark (printing press for USDollars). But a plague of debt locusts was cast upon the US nation, with annual $1.5 trillion deficits. The Americans in their unending arrogance, chose to speak from the tower top and to proclaim 0% forever, suspending gravity. They have attempted to force free money to finance their USGovt debts, to preserve power, to ensure privilege, but in doing so they defy nature in testing gravity itself.

Greece, Discovering the "End" in "Extend & Pretend" / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was a rumor over the weekend that the Troika may be willing to relax the terms of the dreaded memorandum for the Greek government if it formed a "pro-European" coalition government and avoided new elections. This rumor is ridiculous on both fronts - 1) the Troika and Germany would NEVER make such a concession for fear that every single penny pledged to peripheral nations would become contingent on the outcome of national elections and, essentially, a gift with no conditions attached (something that would pit the German people against their crony, bankster-run government once and for all), and 2) the left-wing Syriza party in Greece would NEVER commit itself to the Euro while it continues to gain popularity each day before the new elections.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Forecast for Coming Week / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Manas_Banerji

French election outcome was not much disturbing but Greece is again creating the fear due to their inconclusive result or it will be better to say that Greek voters voted against the bailouts and those austerity measures. German minister’s remark about Greece may fuel lots of calculations. Market is speculating that Greece may quit Euro but here the important thing is what the Euro zone authorities are thinking! Earlier I was confused about holding back of 1bn euros of rescue money but as situation is developing, now it is quite understandable.

Greece Exit, Euro-Zone Collapse, Spain and Portugal Will Follow Within 6 Months / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis analysis continues on from my last article in light of the recent French and Greek elections where voters rejected economic austerity in favour of money printing Inflation stealth debt default as politically an smoke and mirrors Inflationary depression is being seen as far more palatable for populations than a deflationary depression slow motion economic collapse. However to be able to print money inline with the true state of the respective competitiveness of euro-zone economies, then these countries governments have no choice but to exit the euro-zone, or be forced out as they one by one fail to follow through on agreed austerity measures.

Student Loans, The Next Bubble? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the housing bubble burst spectacularly in late 2007, many analysts have been actively seeking out the next likely explosion. Rest assured, it will be related to debt in some way. US Treasuries, credit cards, and potentially another disaster on Wall Street thanks to over-leveraging have all been mentioned as potential leading candidates. However, there is another bubble out there and it too is debt related. This one, in my opinion, has far greater consequences because it involves a group that is the least financially able to deal with the ramifications. I’m talking about student loans and the massive bubble that has been expanding for at least the past decade.

Global Debt Crisis, There Is Not Enough Money On Planet Earth / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo matter how you look at it, as The Automatic Earth and others have pointed out ad infinitum, in the end the US economy rests on two pillars: Jobs and Housing. They are where both all the good and bad in economic terms begin and end. Ben Bernanke and his Fed policies are majestically failing on both counts.

Fresh after the announcement of a new joint venture with Casey Research and the conclusion of his own Strategic Investment Conference in Carlsbad, Mauldin spoke to The Gold Report. He believes that investors have a small window to save their investments from the end of the debt supercycle, but they'll have to move fast.

The Golden Rule Reinterpreted / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an April speech in Berlin, Dr. Andreas Dombret, a member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank (the German central bank), offered a startlingly frank assessment of the current problems in Europe. Although his comments were meant to apply to the tensions and imbalances that exist between the northern and southern tier of the 17-member eurozone, they shed inadvertent light on the broader global economy.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Forecast for Coming Week / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Manas_Banerji

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome sections of the market were looking for further stimulus by ECB or an assurance from Draghi. I think that type of assurance would act as a boost for market. But here Draghi has different approach, as he thinks that liquidity is abundant in the Euro zone. This time Draghi emphasized more on Growth, as I said in my past reviews that I am not sure how growth will come with lots of austerity measures and cuts!  ECB hold its interest rate, which was already discounted.
