European Debt Crisis, What’s Up With The PIGS? A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Charles_Maley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce again, the media has many reasons (in hindsight) for the demise in Greece, Portugal and Spain, and of course are now forecasting how the situation will be resolved. Personally, I think this could be the beginning of the end for the Euro. Greece is the first test, but other European countries have problems, and the entire European Union are now called into question. Remember, the original goal was to unite different economies into one powerful trading block, with the Euro currency hopefully replacing the Dollar as the world currency.

Greece Dreams of Bankruptcy / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf Greece does not receive financial aid by May 19, the country will become a bankrupt, the government warns. By that date Greece must pay off 9 billion Euros. Last week the country asked the International Monetary Fund for support. The decision regarding funds allocation will be made based on the results of three-way negotiations between the Greek government, European Committee and the IMF.

Sovereign Debt Goes Bang! Challenge for Central Banks / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Risks from Fiscal Imbalances
The Challenge for Central Banks
Bang, Indeed!
The Center Cannot Hold
A Decent Employment Report

Last week we focused on the first half of a paper by the Bank of International Settlements, discussing what they characterized as the need for "Drastic measures ... to check the rapid growth of current and future liabilities of governments and reduce their adverse consequences for long-term growth and monetary stability." As I noted, you don't often see the term drastic measures in a staid economic paper from the BIS. This week we will look at the conclusion of that paper, and then turn our discussion to the fallout from the problems they discuss, initially in Europe but coming soon to a country near you.

The Subprime Rhyme with U.S. Debt Debacle / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe similarities between the subprime mortgage crisis and that of the coming collapse of the U.S. bond market are uncanny. In fact, Mark Twain may have had the U.S. debt market and the previous debt-fueled real estate crisis in mind when he said that “History does not repeat itself—but it does rhyme.”

Sovereign Debt Crisis Dominos Are Lining Up to Collapse / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBoy, what a week! I’ve been warning about a troubled euro and a building sovereign debt crisis for some time. And the bond and currency market activities this past week are a clear example that the momentum is picking up.

There’s a bumpy road ahead … and not just for Greece.

The Future Public Debt Trajectory

Everyone and their brother intuitively knows that the current government fiscal deficits in the developed world are unsustainable. They have to be brought under control, but that requires some short-term pain. Today we look at a rather remarkable piece of research from the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) on what the fiscal crisis may morph into in the future, how much pain will be needed, and what will happen if various countries stay on their present courses. Some countries could end up paying north of 20% of GDP just on the interest to serve their debt, within just 30 years.

Roast the PIIGS, and End the Euro Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Sol_Palha

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Mankind differs from the animals only by a little and most people throw that away." ~ Confucius, BC 551-479, Chinese Ethical Teacher, Philosopher

The last meltdown was caused by the financial crisis in the United States, which was triggered by the onset of the housing and mortgage crisis. We now have the potential for a full blown currency crisis to unfold. Greek debt has been reduced to junk status and both Spain and Portugal have had their ratings lowered.

EXTEND & PRETEND: Uncle Sam, You Sly Devil! / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe modus operandi (MO) of deviant behavior aids investigators in doing criminal profiling. Forensic accounting takes a similar approach and leads us to some unnerving conclusions about Uncle Sam. As Tax Payers we place our sacred trust in our elected officials and government. Is that trust being handled similarly to how Goldman Sachs apparently has been handling its fiduciary responsibilities?

Greece Bond Market Crash, Europe and ETFs / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Americans hear about Greece, the first thought that comes to mind is usually “ancient history.” Now Greece is all over the headlines for its financial woes.

But if truth be told, Greece hasn’t done anything different from many other countries, including the U.S.! The government simply spent too much money, the citizens enjoyed too many overly-generous social programs, and eventually the bill came due. Now someone has to pay up — and the Greeks don’t have the cash.

Portugal Suffering Greek Debt Contagion / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNothing new to long time readers as we've pointed out repeatedly that the newest, and biggest bubble of them all is the government debt bubble.  [Feb 5, 2010: Sovereign Risk Chart - Where Would the US Fit in, on Europe's Scale?]   In a world fixated only on benefits, and could care less of the costs as long as they are borne by taxpayers, very few seem to care these days.  It is now the ethos that whatever the problem, a central bank or government will throw a country's populace under the bus to "solve" it.

Possible Misunderstandings about Municipalities and their Bonds / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProblems of state and municipal finance worsen. Governors announce new spending cuts at press conferences but inspire little confidence. The fury of emergency announcements leaves the listener (as well as the governors) in a daze. Research reports offer broad explanations but have left bondholders, as well as employees and local residents, unprepared for discontinuities. In other words, there will be instances when these constituencies will find themselves marched to the slaughterhouse without warning.
