What's Up At the Fed? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The last week was a full Federal Reserve soap opera, full of events and action that should appear suspicious to most anyone. 

First, the Federal Reserve complies with a request to release information about its emergency lending and monetary policy actions during the financial crisis, at which point it is found the Fed was willing to hand cash to just about anyone.  Next, Bernanke comes out on 60 Minutes, a very popular and watched program, to discuss quantitative easing three.  Has the chairman gone mad?

Debunking Bernanke’s QE Not Money Printing Myth / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his interview with “60 Minutes”, Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested it is a myth that quantitative easing implies printing money. With all due respect, Mr. Bernanke, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck!

Bernanke argues his policies do not amount to printing money, as neither currency in circulation, nor money supply has increased. This analogy is a bit like giving a loaded gun to a kid, then telling your friends that it’s not a deadly weapon because the shots that have been fired haven’t killed anyone. Granted, we are exaggerating here because, after all, it’s only money we are talking about. Yet, printing money may destroy one’s purchasing power and thus one’s life’s savings.

Large Brokerage Firms Continue Pumping Collapsing Municipal Bonds Onto the Public / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUndaunted by falling municipal bond prices, rising yields, and withdrawal of funds, research reports by large brokerage firms still mollify the majority of clients and fund managers with numbers and assertions: "General obligation bonds do not default." "The general obligation default rate is 0.01%." "Most states are required by law to balance their budgets." To these and other airtight arguments in the muni marketing kit, the proper articulation of doubt may be expressed as: "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah." Or, one might read "Possible Misunderstandings by Municipalities and Their Bonds."

Fed's Global Pawnshop Hands Out $9 Trillion in Short-term Loans to 18 Financial Institutions / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Articlemybudget360.com writes: Federal Reserve made $9 trillion in short-term loans to only 18 financial institutions. Since 2000 the US dollar has fallen by 33 percent. The hidden cost of the bailouts.

The Federal Reserve released a stunning report showing the details of bailouts that occurred during the peak of the credit crisis.  They won’t call it “bailouts” but giving money when others won’t is exactly that.  What the report shows is that the Fed operated as a global pawnshop taking in practically anything the banks had for collateral.&

Massive Debt Monetization, The Failure of the Global Financial System / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of commodities, particularly food and petroleum products, will be higher in the coming year, which will strain budgets more than ever for those who still have jobs. Unemployment will not get appreciably better and government debt will rise. Government is talking about raising the Social Security retirement age by three years, freezing payments and offering government guaranteed annuities in exchange for those of you that do have retirement plans. Two-thirds of those in and about to retire have only Social Security for 50% of their income. The money collected since 1935 is all gone, having been spent by past politicians. In fact, if you put all present and future commitments together you have a debt of $105 trillion.

Whither Portugal, How Did they Go Bankrupt and Why Ireland is Like Texas / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTen Little Indians
Whither Portugal?
How Did You Go Bankrupt?
Why Ireland Is Like Texas

Why is it that the Irish must take upon themselves the debts of their banks, which in reality are debts owed to German and French banks? Why should the Germans bail out the Greeks and the Spanish? Is the spread of "contagion" starting to taint the debt of Italy and even Belgium, the home of the EU? This week we look over the pond (of the Atlantic) and wonder how all these things will end. As I noted last week, we are getting a string of not so bad news out of the US, so now there are really just two things in the short term to worry about (at least in terms of a positive US GDP): will Congress extend the Bush tax cuts and will Europe sort itself out?

ECB Held Hostage By Europe's Sovereign Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Euro-Zone

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: European Central Bank (ECB) President Jean-Claude Trichet earlier this year resisted pressure to intervene when Greece's budget deficit spurred investor concerns about the viability of the Eurozone and its single currency, the euro. But a bond market sell-off forced Trichet's hand and the ECB began purchasing government debt.

Bond Markets Scream for Haircuts Today, Euro-zone Barbershops to Open in 2013 / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSwaps are soaring in Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Greece, and now Belgium. The market has correctly figured out there will be haircuts on senior bank debts. The problem is the ECB wants a free lunch but no haircuts until 2013, hoping of course the need for haircuts goes away in a few years.

Central bankers cannot and will not win this battle of nerves. The market is bigger than the Central bank.

QE2, Beware the Perils of its Success / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen. … the bad economist pursues a small present good that will be followed by a great evil to come, while the good economist pursues a great good to come, at the risk of a small present evil. - Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

Ireland Debt Crisis Bailout For the Banks, Subjugation of the Irish People / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Philipp_Bagus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope is in turmoil once again. The sovereign-debt crisis threatens to spread from Ireland to Portugal and Spain. It all began with the financial crisis. Before the financial crisis, several governments of the eurozone, most notably those of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain (PIIGS), had been able to finance their deficits at artificially low interest rates. Some had accumulated unsustainable levels of public debts.

In this article I'll explain these fears and I'll argue that the Fed, with its printing press, cannot really go bankrupt the way other corporations can.
