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.

Welcome to George Orwells Version of the "Free Markets" / Politics / Government Intervention

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn what may be the most Orwellian comment in history, President Bush just stated: " Bank buyout needed to preserve free market ".

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.

Central Banks Announce Unlimited Borrowings / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

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.

Financial Storm to Usher In New World Order / Politics / New World Order

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMore than just a mere liquidity or credit crisis, the current financial storm represents the death throes of the old global economic order, and perhaps the birth pains of a new one. The sun is setting on the borrow and spend culture that has defined us for a generation. Our long ride on the global gravy train is finally coming to an end, and once it does nothing will be the same. The sooner we come to grips with this the better.

G7 Financial Crisis Meeting Geopolitics / Politics / Financial Crash

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe finance ministers of the G-7 countries are meeting in Washington. The first announcements on the meetings will come this weekend. It is not too extreme to say that the outcome of these meetings could redefine how the financial markets work, certainly for months and perhaps for a generation. The Americans are arguing that the regime of intervention and bailouts be allowed to continue. Others, like the British, are arguing for what in effect would be the nationalization of financial markets on a global scale. It is not clear what will be decided, but it is clear that this meeting matters.

Maine Is Not Part of America and America Is Not Part of the World / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

You won't find too many people who understand that bad economic times have arrived in Mid-Coast Maine for the simple reason that they haven't arrived. In this town of 2,000 the last summer was as "normal" as normal could be. I asked local merchants - who outnumber chains in this semi-affluent mix of locals and "Transplants" - how business was this summer? Business was good, everyone says. Busy, busy! Yet, I spot a few vacant storefronts here and there that no one but the town office and me notice. The GM dealer disappeared last year leaving a giant space that the Health Store plans to fill next spring.

Financial Warfare Over Future of Global Banking Power / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat's clear from the behavior of European financial markets over the past two weeks is that the dramatic stories of financial meltdown and panic are deliberately being used by certain influential factions in and outside the EU to shape the future face of global banking in the wake of the US sub-prime and Asset-Backed Security (ABS) debacle. The most interesting development in recent days has been the unified and strong position of the German Chancellor, Finance Minister, Bundesbank and coalition Government, all opposing an American-style EU Superfund bank bailout. Meanwhile Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson pursues his Crony Capitalism to the detriment of the nation and benefit of his cronies in the financial world. It's an explosive cocktail that need not have been.

Post 9/11 World Strategic Analysis / Politics / Al-Qeeda

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne day after 9/11, U.S. President George W. Bush declared a global “war on terror.” Al Qaeda had first reared its head years before in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1998 U.S. Embassy attacks in East Africa and the 2000 USS Cole bombing, but it was not until the World Trade Center towers came crashing down that the global international security community became almost completely consumed with battling global jihadism. Professors of political Islam came out of the woodwork, Osama bin Laden became a household name, university students started pouring into Arabic language courses and, for the first time, terrorism became a national security priority. This era became known as the “post-9/11 world.”

Bailout Bill Full of Pork Fuelling U.S. $11trillion Debt Mountain / Politics / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

Buried in the bailout bill signed into law on Friday was a plethora of tax incentives and increases in government intrusion into our privacy. Following in the spirit of the Patriot Act, this new law now allows the IRS to run undercover operations where they can pose as accountants and offer illicit advice to entrap clients. Additionally, it provides in total over $100 billion in tax exemptions for makers of wooden arrowheads, owners of stock car racetracks, Virgin Island rum runners and others.
