U.S. Government Spends Trillions to Support Flawed Banking System / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost Americans have come to accept the simple truth that we have eroded our national wealth by consuming far more than we produce. With this understanding taking hold, and with the severity of the financial crisis spreading, government has an opportunity to radically change course to put the nation on a different economic path. But rather than making a meaningful turn, all our politicians are willing to do is put their foot on the accelerator.

Time to Stop Blaming and Start Solving the Credit Crisis Debt Problems / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the key reasons behind the current financial crisis is that the big investment banks, hedge funds and other financial companies borrowed way too much money. Another key reason we're in this big mess is that way too many American households borrowed way too much money.

Extreme debt is the common denominator that links Wall Street and Main Street , and the numbers are truly staggering. When the debt suddenly came due, neither Street had anywhere near the cash to cover it. Overleveraging hurt hedge funds when markets got tougher and many of their investors wanted their money back. These hedge funds were forced to sell sizable positions in natural resources and energy equities, driving prices down sharply.

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith two weeks left before the US presidential election, is Arizona Senator John “Maverick” McCain's sprint for the White House at a dead-end? His challenger, Illinois Democrat Barack Obama raked in $150 million in donor contributions from domestic and possibly foreign sources last month, and is planning an unrelenting brainwashing campaign until Election Day, in order to cement his lead in the opinion polls, and guide the Democrats to complete control of the US-government.

Government Bailouts Herald New Era of Tax Payer Slavery / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the midst of highly unpopular bailouts of Wall Street, many justifications have been given about why Washington feels the need to act. Some claim that capitalism and the free market are to blame, but we have not had capitalism. If you compare our financial capital to our aggregate debt, this would be obvious. In the same way, we have not had a truly free market. The monetary manipulations of the Federal Reserve, a complex tax code, the many "oversight" agencies and their mountains of regulations show that we are far removed from a free market economy.

Nationalizing the Banks – Response to reader criticism / Politics / Nationalization

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThank you for your carefully considered argument in rebuttal of my (conceptual) proposal to nationalize the banking industry.

Perhaps you will think less ill of me if we can agree on precisely what has been occupying my thoughts – because it appears to me that you are making some unfounded assumptions regarding what I am actually proposing for consideration.

Paulson Panics Over UK Banking Crisis Solution / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica's de facto Finance Czar, US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson has reached for the panic button and made a dramatic 180-degree reversal of his financial bailout plan passed only days before. On September 23 in testimony before the US Congress, Paulson, former CEO of the politically influential Wall Street investment firm, Goldman Sachs, declared his adamant opposition to the idea of the US Government taking equity stakes in troubled major banks in order to provide them capital and stabilize the frozen interbank trading market. On October 13, that opposition to ‘nationalization' collapsed. What happened to cause that sudden reverse is what interests us here. It shows the utter lack of coherency in the US financial elites over how to deal with their home-grown securitization of risk fiasco.

Big Bailout of 2008 Breeds Moral Hazard and Socialism / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a great deal of finger-pointing going on.

Who is to blame for this extraordinary crisis? Arguably, it is the most personal of the many crises visited upon us in my lifetime and probably the most far-reaching since, as of this morning, it had engulfed most of the world. Congress and the American people are looking for a "villain" or "villains" -- someone or some group that can be tagged with the blame for what has happened to the world economy.

Voter Backlash Coming Against Labour Government Economic Incompetence / Politics / UK Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst Gordon Brown continues to enjoy and revel in the financial armageddon bounce, that looks set to ensure that the leadership challenge has been delayed until September 2009. However as the UK economy plunges into recession increasingly voters will become outraged at the Labour party effectively doubling the national debt by an additional £500 billion of which at least £90 billion is money lost, never to be recovered. After all this is what socialism is all about i.e. to stop bankrupt companies from going bust, whilst ratcheting up enormous amounts of debt.

The US Government is to spend up to $250 billion buying direct stakes in banks and other financial institutions under a controversial emergency plan which President Bush insisted today was "not intended to take over the free market but to preserve it".

Capitalism Without Capital? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has been long understood that our federal government is going deeper into debt, consistently raising the debt ceiling and demonstrating no fiscal restraint. In recent years, debt ceiling increases have been placed in "must pass" legislation as a means to guarantee that Republicans as well as Democrats would vote for them when Congress was under Republican control.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks soared today as Europe, the US, and in fact Central Bankers everywhere "let it all hang out". Please consider Europe puts more on the line for banks than US .

Europe put $2.3 trillion on the line Monday to protect the continent's banks, a figure that dwarfs the Bush administration's $700 billion rescue program, in its most unified response yet to the global financial crisis after a stumbling start.

International Financial Crisis Economies and Markets Redefining the Rules / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA complex sequence of meetings addressing the international financial crisis took place this weekend. The weekend began with meetings among the finance ministers of the G-7 leading industrialized nations. It was followed by a meeting of finance ministers from the G-20, the group of industrial and emerging powers that together constitute 90 percent of the world's economy. There were also meetings with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. The meetings concluded on Sunday with a summit of the eurozone, those European Union countries that use the euro as their currency. Along with these meetings, there were endless bilateral meetings far too numerous to catalog.
