The Banks That Swallowed Europe, Western Civilization Built on Debt / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong-time readers will be familiar with Michael Lewitt, one of my favorite thinkers and analysts. He has gone off on his own to write his letter, and I am encouraging him to write even more. I call Michael a thinker because he really does. He reads a lot of thought-provoking tomes and then thinks about them. And then writes, making his readers think. The world needs more Michael Lewitts.

Today, he roams the world, commenting as he goes, starting of course with Europe. I have permission to use the first half of this most recent letter as today’s Outside the Box, leaving off the investment recommendations that he shares with his subscribers.

Sovereign Debt Crisis Canaries In The Mineshaft: Should Markets Be Apprehensi​ve? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: DK_Matai

1. The G20 summit in Cannes has not been able to deliver any meaningful solution to the Eurozone crisis.  As the Breton prayer goes, "O Lord, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small!"  The summit has confirmed that China, India and other emerging countries will neither be able and nor will they be willing to rescue the richer Eurozone nations.  Also, the US is in no mood to roll out a second Marshall Plan on this occasion.  The world has moved on since 1948.  As one distinguished G20 summit attendee from the US told ATCA 5000, "if the Europeans are not going to take their fire engine out to put out their fires why should we lend them our fire engine? What happens if we have a mini-fire of our own in the meantime?"  The much vaunted IMF solution also appears to have fizzled out, at least for the time being;

Operation Twist through 2012, and keeping the benchmark interest rate near zero to at least mid-2013.

Nevertheless, the more important (albeit coded) message is how much more pessimistic the Fed has gotten just within the past five months.  Below are the table from the Fed latest November economic forecast with the prior projection issued in June.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs many of you may already know, the other day Ron Paul expressly mentioned that he would pick James Grant of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer as chairman of the Fed if elected.

So, for anyone that might be interested, here I present a short video of his best moments on money, banking and the Federal Reserve over the past few years. See below for the video:

Despite surviving a confidence vote (153-145)on Saturday which helped calm a revolt in his Socialist party, this is a hollow victory for the Greek prime Minister, George Papandreou

Wondering About the Size of Greece Debt Exposure? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Asha_Bangalore

Greek drama is now no longer confined to the literature class. The current Greek economic drama will be enshrined in economic history books and economic/financial policy studies. As the crisis has unfolded, it has been frequently challenging to find a succinct representation of the exposure to Greek debt. Thanks to the folks at the BBC, here is that picture.

The Fed’s Forecast Begs for Action, Bernanke Hints at QE3 / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The main conclusion from Bernanke’s press conference on November 2 is that the Fed has two choices. QE3 (quantitative easing) is one option given the Fed’s gloomy forecast (see Table 1). The precise timing, magnitude and composition of QE3 are unknown but Bernanke’s responses suggest that there is a willingness to engage, if essential. Large asset purchases are likely to be a combination of Treasury securities and mortgage-backed securities. The second alternative is its communication strategy much like the August announcement that the federal funds rate would be held at the current rate at the least until mid-2013. In other words, it would entail tying interest rate decisions to economic conditions in policy communications.

The Fed is Less Optimistic about Growth and Employment, But Stands Pat / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Fed left current policies intact and opted not to take any action today after implementing far reaching policy changes at the August and September FOMC meetings. Fed President Evans of the Chicago Fed cast the dissenting vote and would have preferred to provide more monetary policy accommodation. This is in stark contrast to the three dissents in August and September when Fed Presidents of Dallas, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia voted against the decision to hold the policy rate unchanged until mid-2013 and to undertake the maturity extension program of $400 billion dollars. Fed President Rosengren of Boston had cast a similar dissent in December 2007 arguing for a larger cut of the federal funds rate when the Fed lowered the policy rate by 25 bps to 4.25%.

The Debt Burden Zombie Club of Nations / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Michael_Pento

Greece has supposedly received a bailout and markets across the globe are soaring. In fact, they are rising in the same manner they did a few months after the bailout of the U.S. financial system, now known as the Emergency Economic Stabilization act of 2008. However, the truth is there is no such thing as a complete and genuine bailout; there is only a transfer of burden from the government and banks to the middle class.

Spain's Economic Crisis Shows the Eurozone Can't Escape its Debt Trap / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Fresh evidence of Spain's deepening economic crisis has revived fears about that nation's ability to dig out of its sovereign debt problems, and illustrates why the Eurozone debt crisis is likely to drag on for years.

Spain's gross domestic product (GDP) was flat in the third quarter, the country's central bank said yesterday (Monday). That follows anemic growth of 0.4% in the first quarter and 0.2% in the second quarter.

U.S. Treasury Bond Weakness in Synch With Stocks / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury ETF (TBT) remains directly related to the direction of the stock indices. The correction off of last Thursday's high in the emini S&P 500 has been accompanied by a correction in the TBT.

This reflects a flight out of risk into the relative safety of the bond market, which in turn compromises the price structure of the TBT, as it represents longer-term rates.

Foreign Borrowing Poses An Imminent Threat to the U.S. Dollar and U.S. Financial System / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States is the largest debtor nation in the history of the world, and our borrowing is increasing. In 1950 spending for social programs was only one percent of the total Federal Budget. As the economy grew, social programs expanded to include Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Unemployment Compensation, Supplemental Security for the Disabled, and educational programs. In 1983 as the United States pulled out of an ugly recession and brought inflation under control, social programs consumed 26% of the budget. In fiscal year 2012, they’ll eat up an estimated 57% of the budget.

European Debt Crisis Summit: A Definite Plan But with No Details / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhere is the peace dividend that was supposed to come after the end of the Cold War? Where are the fruits of the amazing gains in efficiency that technology has afforded? It has been eaten by the bureaucracy that manages our every move on this earth. The voracious and insatiable monster here is called the Federal Code that calls on thousands of agencies to exercise the police power to prevent us from living free lives.

It is as Bastiat said: the real cost of the state is the prosperity we do not see, the jobs that don't exist, the technologies to which we do not have access, the businesses that do not come into existence, and the bright future that is stolen from us. The state has looted us just as surely as a robber who enters our home at night and steals all that we love. - William "Bill" Bonner

U.S. Fed Operation Twist – Unmet Goal, For Now / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Fed put in place “Operation Twist” on September 21, 2011 with the goal of guiding long rates to a lower level. The 10-year Treasury note yield closed at a low of 1.72% on the day after the new policy was instituted. As of this writing, it is trading at 2.33%. The 30-year mortgage rate dropped briefly to 3.94% but is back up at levels seen just prior to the announcement (4.10%).
