Senate Bailout Bill Will Fail US Taxpayers / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: My sister lives in a landmark building in Coral Gables, Fla. There was a fire in one apartment in the building. After that fire was brought under control, the fire department - for some unknown reason - dropped a hose in the burned apartment, and left the water running … for hours.

That inane maneuver destroyed many apartments, crippled the building's infrastructure and resulted in the building being temporarily condemned. The entire building was closed down for many months. Every person who lived there had to relocate. My sister, fortunately, had the wherewithal to take up temporary residence in the world-famous Biltmore Hotel .

Bailout Bill Marks the End of America as We Know It? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOCTOBER 1, 2008—Tonight the Senate passed the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill by a vote of 74-25. This follows the rejection of the bill by the House on Monday. In an MSNBC poll, 62 percent of Americans oppose the giveaway, but the lobbyists are doing everything possible to assure the rejection is overturned. According to Bob Borosage, co-director of The Campaign for America 's Future, House leaders “are bringing in the small business lobby and the banking lobby to buy the twelve Republican votes they need.”

Europe Puts Pressure on Bush to Pass Bailout Plan / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Bloomberg is reporting Trichet Says U.S. Must Pass Plan to Rescue `Global Finance'
European Central Bank President Jean- Claude Trichet said U.S. lawmakers must pass a $700 billion rescue package for banks to shore up confidence in the global financial system.

"It has to go, for the sake of the U.S. and for the sake of global finance," Trichet said in an interview in Frankfurt with Bloomberg Television late yesterday. "I am confident, but of course it is the decision of the U.S. Congress."

The Political Nature of the Credit Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClassical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo referred to their discipline as “political economy.” Smith's great work, “The Wealth of Nations,” was written by the man who held the chair in moral philosophy at the University of Glasgow. This did not seem odd at the time and is not odd now. Economics is not a freestanding discipline, regardless of how it is regarded today. It is a discipline that can only be understood when linked to politics, since the wealth of a nation rests on both these foundations, and it can best be understood by someone who approaches it from a moral standpoint, since economics makes significant assumptions about both human nature and proper behavior.

Why the Bailout Vote Failed / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Walter_Brasch

The Republican leaders of the House of Representatives grabbed a half dozen bags of sincerity, looked directly into every TV camera they could find, and lied. The House had just defeated, 228–205, a bipartisan $700 billion bailout bill. But it was the Democrats who were the subject of vicious rhetoric.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDateline Washington, October 19th (get it?) 2010: the Peoples Bank & Trust of America has now established itself as the only bank of any kind in the USA, totally owned and managed by the US House of Representatives. A 2/3 majority must now approve all investment banking transactions; your district representative's staff reviews individual mortgage applications; and all 401(k), IRA, and remaining employer pension assets have been rolled into the Social Security Slush Fund.

Bernanke and Paulson in the Dark on Bailout Impact / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mick_Phoenix

Pre Vote Commentary - Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week we use the words of Ben Shalom Bernanke to describe why the $700Billion bailout will fail. I am going to assume the Bailout is enacted in one form or another and is probably announced around the Far East market opening times. However, there is a possibility that if Congress has not agreed then no soothing words will be forthcoming and a crash in share prices is used to "galvanise" action. We shall see.

How To Stop A Run On The Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global banking system has frozen up. There is no trust between banks and there is no trust by depositors of banks. This has caused a run on the banks, and has led to the failure of Washington Mutual and Wachovia. Internationally, several large banks have failed.

The defeat in Congress of a proposed $700 billion economic-rescue package followed an intense outpouring of voter anger, fanned by politicians, interest groups and media on the left and right, that overwhelmed calls from the president and top lawmakers to pass the deal.

Republicans Defy Bush and Vote NO to Socialist Bailout Bill / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFINALLY, someone said “No” to the criminal gang that runs the U.S. economy when the House voted down the Bush-Paulson $700 billion Wall Street bailout plan by a vote of 228-205.

Shame on the Democrats! Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Majority Whip Rahm Emanuel delivered “yea” votes from 60 percent of Democratic House members and thereby gave the bill the only chance of passage it had.

Financial Catastrophe Entire Global Financial System in Collapse / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Stephen_Lendman


Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crime of the century. The greatest one ever. Author Danny Schechter calls it "Plunder." The title of his important new book on the subprime and overall financial crisis. Economist Michael Hudson and others refer to a kleptocracy. A Ponzi scheme writ large. Maybe an out-of-control Andromeda Strain. An economic one. Deadly. Unrecallable. Science fiction now real life. Potentially catastrophic. World governments trying to contain it. Trying everything but not sure what can work. Maybe only able to paper it over for short-term relief. Buy time but in the end vindicate the maxim that things that can't go on forever, won't.

Bailout Plan No Solution to America's Ponzi Scheme Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRisks of the Proposed Bailout: Part II - Would I support a bailout under any circumstances? Maybe. But only if there was a clear plan laid forth with specific guidelines and it was to be executed by credible and competent leaders. And only after I saw dozens of bank, Wall Street, and mortgage CEOs and others have their assets stripped and sent to prison. But all of Washington has been way behind the curve the entire time. And they have not raised the issue of accountability as I define it.

Financial Crisis Bailout or Not, Economic Depression is Upon Us / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRisks of the Proposed Bailout: Part I - McCain, along with Paulson, Bernanke, Bush and others are using scare tactics hoping to rush the approval of this historic banking bailout plan. Threats of a “disaster” and a “severe economic crisis” have been interpreted by the media as a “depression” if the bill is not passed immediately. Politicians continue to scare the public stating that without a bailout, pension and 401(k) plans will be threatened. Are the conditions very serious? Definitely. The point is that they are so serious that a bailout won't do much at this point other than waste taxpayer money with no real accountability. Finally, as far as I can tell, this bailout really doesn't do much if anything to help taxpayers.

Mainstream Media's Failure to Understand the Credit Crunch / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's is a rule of the universe that every effect has a cause. And so it is with the current financial crisis. Instead of starting with those economic theories -- that should be rightly called fallacies -- we need to take heed of the unfortunate fact that the vast majority of people are getting their information from the media. I say unfortunate because not only are the great majority of journalists incapable of explaining the processes that brought about the crisis, they are also outrageous political bigots who see it as their duty to blame every conservative politician in sight, even if it means lying.

World of Unreal Finance Hitting the Real Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: David_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It's not the economy, stupid!” - Bill Clinton's campaign slogan was: “It's the economy, stupid!”

Actually that was James Carville's maxim and battle cry for the 1992 presidential election. Mr. “Ragin' Cajun” Carville, as you probably don't remember, was the commander-in-chief of Bill Clinton's first campaign for the White House. He was and is married to Mary Joe Matalin who happened to be working on George H.W. Bush's 1992 re-election campaign! Ms. Matalin was also an assistant to President George W. Bush and a special counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney until 2003.
