Global Debt Crisis Future Public Debt Trajectory Protections / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

The Future Of Public Debt
The Future Public Debt Trajectory
Debt Projections

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.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Update / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat darned bond market just won’t give up the ghost!  So much to write about this week in so little space!  Another record amount of supply (close to $130 Billion) was auctioned without a hiccup last week.  The bond auctions were overshadowed by the FOMC meeting and some further supportive data on the fundamental front.

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.

Greek Debt Crisis Won’t Spawn Second Global Financial Crash / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Money_Morning

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.

The Greek Debt Tragedy From Banks to Sovereigns Back to Banks / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack and recovering from my Strategic Investment Conference this weekend (where I decided to give myself permission not to write my usual letter, but I promise I will be back at it this next Friday!) I have spent some time pondering what we learned. It was a fabulous conference. Lacy Hunt, Dr. Gary Shilling, David Rosenberg, Niall Ferguson, Paul McCulley, George Friedman, former Fed Senior Economist Jason Cummins (who is now Chief Economist for Brevan Howard, the largest European hedge fund, and who was quite impressive), Jon Sundt of Altegris, and your humble analyst were all in top form. I must admit with a little pride that I think this is the finest speaker lineup for ANY investment conference anywhere. We were given a lot to think about.

Rising Interest Rates Right Around the Corner! Protect Yourself NOW! / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

U.S. Treasury Bonds Stay Long and Earn the Carry! / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market successfully chopped sideways last week.  Inflation data on both sides of the border remains supportive in spite of the hawkish tone from the Bank of Canada meeting last week.  The busy supply agenda continues to counterbalance the positive fundamentals as another record amount of supply (close to $130 Billion) is scheduled for auction during the next week.  The continuing positive tone in commodities and equities still can’t seem to put any sustained pressure on rates to rise.

EXTEND and PRETEND, Is the U.S. Facing a Cash Crunch? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Government is caught in a cash vise and is being squeezed between too slow a rebound in tax revenues and the limitations on how quickly it can realistically take its funding requirements to the US Treasury auction. The US Treasury was saved in March by what the government reports as “proprietary receipts”. Those receipts require an explanation that is not well publicized since it begs the question of what happens next month without the $117 BILLION journal entry.

U.S. Government Deficit Spending Debt, We’re All Comrades Now / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report writes : To ascertain what move the government is most likely to take next, we must first assess the probabilities.

In order to do that, we start by restating the central question, “How does the U.S. government spend, spend, spend (a minimum of $10 trillion in red ink over the next decade) and yet maintain today’s historically low interest rates?”
