The vice-presidential debates proved one thing. At the very least, Sarah Palin can be trained.

For several days, she had camped out in one of John McCain's Arizona houses, where she underwent Debate Boot camp conducted by drill instructors who make Marine DIs appear to be slaggers.

Bailout Plan WIll Fail due to Flawed Understanding of the Financial Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are being told loudly and repeatedly that the gargantuan mortgage bail-out package is necessary because illiquid mortgage-backed securities are clogging our financial arteries, threatening the economic equivalent of cardiac arrest. The idea of the plan is to transfer these supposedly valuable, but currently unmarketable, assets to the government so that private institutions can freely lend once more. The monumental flaw in this argument is that the mortgage backed securities are in fact highly liquid, just not at the prices the owners would like to receive. Read full article...

$700 Billion Bailout Package a Necessary Evil / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYears from now conspiracy theorists will no doubt contend that the historic $700 billion 2008 bailout package came about because the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury wanted to further cement their control over the U.S. economy and government.  Focusing on Bernanke and Paulson's apocalyptic words leading up to the bailout vote, not to mention some anti-Fed writings from Thomas Jefferson, conspiracy theorists will note how powerful men scared Congressmen into adopting their plan, how the rules of the financial game were changed to help Wall Street, and how the American public, once again, saw their hard earned dollars stolen from them. Needless to say, what the conspiracy theorists will be doing is giving Bernanke and Paulson far more credit than they deserve. Read full article... Read full article...

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.

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.

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.
