U.S. Big Bank Bailout Costs Trillions More than Stated / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGranted, the $700 billion dollar TARP bailout was a massive bait-and-switch. The government said it was doing it to soak up toxic assets, and then switched to saying it was needed to free up lending. It didn't do that either. Indeed, the Fed doesn't want the banks to lend.

United States Political Insurrection Has Begun / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Saturday, May 8, an extraordinary event took place. United States Senator Bob Bennett, a 3-term Republican, failed to make the cut for his party's primary. Not only was he not nominated to run, he did not make the cut to get nominated. He was a distant third. Two Tea Party candidates beat him.

Bob Bennett is a legacy Senator. His father served as Senator before him.

Global Economic War, Will The Wall Street Banksters Ever Be Held Accountable? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are all still stuck in the “big Muddy.” No, not the wars of old or even the oil disaster.  The mud I am referring to is more like quicksand and it sucks anyone who wants to look at what happened in the financial crisis deeper and deeper into it.

Soon, you are buried in shifting sea of so-called “exotic financial instruments,” and tranches, derivatives, credit default swaps, naked short-selling, etc and so forth, ad fin item.  It’s murkier in there than in the oil-infested waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Fed Transcripts Shows A Methodical, Diabolical Destruction of America's Wealth / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve releases transcripts of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings with a five-year lag (as required by law, the Fed would like to burn them). Transcripts for 2004 meetings were released on April 30, 2010. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 998 points on May 6, 2010. The 2004 transcripts help explain why the Dow could have disappeared last week.

Financial Reform, How We Can Save Our Economy / Politics / Market Regulation

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe next few weeks will culminate into a defining moment in American history and lay the course for our economic future. After two years of being asleep at the switch, Congress is finally stepping up and taking action on financial reform. The resulting bill will be a clear indication and definitive proof as to who is actually running our country. Will it reinforce the dominance of the Wall Street elite, or will it mark a rebirth of the rule of law and economic prosperity for millions of Americans who have seen their standard of living decline?

EuroZone Bailout Band Aids for Everyone / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: John_Browne

As the health of much of the global economy weakens on a daily basis, political leadership increasingly ignores the source of the malady and instead focuses on short term "band-aid" remedies. These measures which may buy a few months, or years, of relative well being, will convince the public that problems have been solved and will thereby take pressure off governments to make the needed structural changes.

Engineered Inflation Bailouts Cannot Beat the Markets / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce again the leaders of the western world have engineered a bailout Who pays for it? We hicks and dupes and taxpayers. Once again the politicians, central bankers, and IMFers have patched together a paper dike, in an attempt to hold up the prices of the euro and junk debts, and to prevent the liquidation of banks that hold the bad paper. Once again, they have kept banks and lenders from realizing losses. Once again they have jacked up the moral hazard in the system. Once again they have saved, if only temporarily, the fiat money-fractional-reserve system that works hand-in-hand with big government.

Just Saying No to Social Security Taxes … / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLancaster — known throughout the U.S. as Pennsylvania Dutch Country — is about 40 minutes away from my house. And whenever I pass through the area, I’m reminded of what it means to be truly self-sufficient.

The region’s many Amish inhabitants grow their own food … help each other build their houses … and use horse and buggies instead of gas-addicted cars. Heck, they were “green” before the term became fashionable.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIII: Financial Terrorism Operations: 9/29/08 & 5/6/10

In the aftermath of Goldman Sachs’ public flogging before the world in Congress, and while under investigation, on the very day that Congress was voting on the "break up the too big to fail banks" amendment and cutting behind the scenes deals to gut the audit of the Federal Reserve, the stock market had its greatest sudden drop in history, plummeting 700 points in ten minutes - shades of September 29, 2008 all over again.

European Financial Crisis Moving To a New Level, Nationalism and Shared Fate / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe European financial crisis is moving to a new level. The Germans have finally consented to lead a bailout effort for Greece. The effort has angered the German public, which has acceded with sullen reluctance. It does not accept the idea that it is Germans’ responsibility to save Greeks from their own actions. The Greeks are enraged at the reluctance, having understood that membership in the European Union meant that Greece’s problems were Europe’s.

The Big Short – How Wall Street Destroyed Main Street / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDay after day, bankers have been paraded before Congressional committees regarding their role in the financial crisis which brought the financial system to the edge of the abyss on September 18, 2008. Every one has claimed that they were not responsible in any way for the disaster. They blame once in a lifetime circumstances that no one could have anticipated. It was a perfect storm and they had no way of knowing. These Harvard MBA Wall Street geniuses, who collected compensation in excess of $100 million each before the collapse, had no idea what was going on within their own firms. Ignorance and stupidity is no excuse for losing a trillion dollars.

Fed Audit Under Fire / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

It doesn't come as too much of a surprise that the measure to audit the Federal Reserve is coming under continuous fire from the central bank and its cronies. For the first time since the Federal Reserve was created nearly a century ago, they have hired an actual lobbyist to pound the pavement on Capitol Hill. This is a desperate effort to hang on to the privilege of secrecy and lack of accountability they have enjoyed for so long. Last week showed they are getting their money's worth in the Senate.

Sovereign Debt Crisis, Washington Complicit in Massive Financial Wall Street Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was 7 years ago we said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were bankrupt. Most everyone within the beltway knew it, but no one would say anything about it. This as it now turns out they were the poster companies, which led to sovereign debt problems, but also showed that they were involved in massive fraud over several years and many in Washington knew it. Earnings were fabricated in order to create conditions, so that the officers could collect millions of dollars in bonuses. Part of this scam was engineered by Goldman Sachs, which pushed more than $100 million in earnings into future years. Earnings were structured so that they justified larger payouts for executives.

An Open Letter To Governor Charlie Crist Re: Bp Oil Volcano / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: T_Anthony_Michael

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDear Governor Crist,

We are witnessing the greatest environmental catastrophe of the modern era in the Gulf of Mexico.  Some of the top experts have already estimated that this oil volcano has far surpassed the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill.  Even if the current “stopgap” measures temporarily contain this gusher, it still remains an extraordinary challenge to permanently cap.  Simply put, we have HUGE problems before us no matter how you look at it.  Many are silently weeping in the privacy of their homes because of the sheer enormity and profound gravity of this ongoing, unprecedented, manmade disaster.
