European Commission Fires Big Guns, Euro TARP! / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe European Commission brought out the big guns.  In a move intentionally reminiscent of the US TARP program, leaders of the continent’s major economies promised to keep throwing money at the problem in bulk until some of it stuck.  The set of charts below (courtesy of the Financial Times of London) gives a good graphical representation of the crisis to date.

OECD UK Interest Rates Must Rise to 3.5% During 2011 To Combat Inflation / Interest-Rates / UK Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe OECD academic economics institution says that UK interest rates should rise to 3.5% by the end of 2011 to combat inflation. The OECD inline with other academic economics institutions remains as much as 6 months behind the curve by stating the obvious that inflation is too high AFTER inflation has risen to a 19 year high with RPI hitting 5.3% and CPI at 3.7%, by warning of higher UK interest rates AFTER market interest rates have already risen.

Sovereign Debt Defaults Equal Social Unrest Plus Much Higher Gold Prices / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe magnitude of current private and government debt, coupled with massive unfunded contingent liabilities for promises of future services to their citizens, will prove to be impossible for many nations to fund.  Massive inflation in the money supply will become the preferred vehicle to deflect the default monster and will result in vastly devalued currencies and price inflation as a prelude to default.  Such action will be a desperate attempt to buy time to stave off the inevitable and will result in social unrest caused by persons whose comfortable lifestyle and elevated standard of living is about to disintegrate before their very eyes.

The Broken Euro Club Bailout, Calling All Martians / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Jonathan_Pain

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the due diligence team from the IMF arrived in Athens to determine how much money was needed, they were not surprised by what they found. They had for many years been watching events in Europe and had wondered how long it would take the Germans to find out how the Greeks had not been playing by the rules of the Euro club. In fact the citizens of Mars had been watching the reality show, „Euro club‟ for many years. What concerned them most was that the last time they had seen the Europeans get so angry with each other, many horrible, horrible things had happened.

Stage Set For Another Bernanke Inflationary Adventure / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, has been eerily quiet during the recent market storm.  To be sure, seemingly oblivious to the happenings in EU-land Mr. Bernanke’s speech, The Economics of Happiness, was delivered shortly after major riots in Greece and shortly before the historic nearly $1 trillion plan was announced to try and prevent the destruction of the Euro. As for Bernanke’s speech a month earlier, the tone was that of victory:

E.U. Bailout Just Delays Inevitable Sovereign Debt Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReplacing most of Europe's colorful notes and various coins less than a decade ago, the euro is on the brink of extinction, according to Trader Tracks' Roger Wiegand, sharing news and views of Euroland's critical condition with Gold Report readers in this exclusive interview. Roger says the euro at $1.20 is the "line in the sand where big trouble will start. . .and that's dangerously close." On the other side of the world, he sees China doing well now, but doesn't pin his hopes on China as the engine for global economic growth as so many others do. In fact, he says things there are "fraying a bit on the edges." So, is there a white horse waiting in the wings to lead the world back to economic good health? Read on. . .

In a Word, the Problem is DEBT / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent developments in the euro zone that increasingly look like they will lead to the restructuring (if not the collapse) of one of the world’s major currencies and the potential for this “contagion” to move first north to the U.K. and then west to the U.S. have many people wondering what’s gone wrong with the global monetary system.

How could advanced Western economies have run into such trouble?

Exit plan?  What exit plan?  The Federal Reserve issued a report before Congress in an attempt to clarify its stance during one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression.  The Fed, as always, said very little, but did make one thing very clear—the Fed has no idea what it is doing.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Keeps Chugging Along as Stocks, Gold and Commodities Remain Under Pressure / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market just keeps chugging along very convincingly here through the seasonally negative month of May.  The stock market and commodities remained under pressure as Gold has joined the sell-off.  Looking at the Fed’s stock vs. 10 Year Note Relative Value Model, it has drastically swung from bonds 2.5 standard deviations cheap in March to stocks 2.6 standard deviations cheap last Thursday.  Looks like some of the short term moves are a bit ahead of themselves at this point, but the message is fairly clear: the low hanging fruit has been picked as far as the risk-trade is concerned; the character of the market is rapidly changing.

Sovereign Debt Crisis, America, PIIGS “R” Us too? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pollaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title of this essay may be a play on words but the facts are nothing of the sort.  Indeed, the facts suggest that the financial position of the U.S. government may not be all that much better than the financial position of the governments of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece or Spain, the so-called PIIGS.  In fact, given the agenda the Obama administration has set for America, one so far distinguished by ever larger government spending programs being financed by ever larger amounts of debt, the U.S. government may be well on its way to becoming PIIGS “R” Us.

Everywhere there are arguments that we are in a "V"-shaped recovery. And there are signs that in fact that is the case. Today we will look at some of those, and then take up the topic of when the Fed will raise rates. We open the case and look at the evidence. Is there enough to come to a real conviction? I think there is. (And at the end of the letter I mention two conferences I am speaking at in the next few months, in Vancouver and San Francisco.)

Government Budget Deficit Financing and Inflation / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI assume that you know how the banking system developed and how the banks could improve the services rendered by gold, by transferring assets from one individual to another individual in the books of the banks. When you study the development of the history of money you will discover that there were countries in which there were systems in which all the payments were made by transactions in the books of a bank, or of several banks. The individuals acquired an account by paying gold into this bank. There is a limited quantity of gold, so the payments which are made are limited. And it was possible to transfer gold from the account of one man to the account of another.

Global Debt Defaults Ahead as Keynesian's Race to Bankruptcy / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe euro is falling. It is at the lowest exchange rate to the dollar in four years.

Confidence in the euro is falling because it is becoming clear that the region's commercial bankers have made the same sorts of bad decisions that American commercial bankers made after 2000. They loaned money to debtors in Eastern Europe who will not be able to repay. These loans were collateralized by real estate, which rose. Real estate prices in Eastern Europe are now falling. The bubble has popped.
