The FDIC Depositor Insurance: as Rock Solid as Social Security / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Pento

We all should be painfully aware by now that there is nothing held inside the Social Security and Medicare trust funds but a bunch of IOUs. Monies collected from payroll taxes are treated as general revenues and used in the “unified budget.” But how many of us are aware that the FDIC's Deposit Insurance Fund works in a similar fashion?

America's Next Revolution, the People Seize Control of Economic Resources / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy email exchange with Dr. Bede Vincent Curley

Mike Whitney: I have been beating the same dead horse for three or four years now and many people are getting tired of the endless iterations of collapsing markets, rising unemployment and growing pessimism. What's needed is a vision of the future and a concrete plan of action, but I don't have one. So, tell me, what is to be done?

G-20 Summit a Complete Waste of Money / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThose who expected much of anything to come out of this G-20 meeting were mistaken. The bottom line is that every country is going to do what it wants, and unfortunately most of them have agreed to do the wrong thing which is to stimulate lending.

In addition, a fight of sorts as broken out between the US and EU over additional stimulus proposals. With that backdrop let's take a look at some snips from G-20 pledge sustained action on financial crisis .

Eureka! Creative Accounting Solves Banking Crisis! / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Who knew it would be so easy? Who knew we could solve the banking industry's collapse by simply changing how we account for assets. Eureka! Problem solved!

That seems to be the conclusion Wall Street came to earlier this week, judging by the reaction to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's comments at the Council on Foreign Relations on Tuesday. During that speech, Bernanke weighed in on “mark to market” accounting, saying the following:

The Militarization and Annexation of North America / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title refers to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), also known as the North American Union - formerly launched at a March 23, 2005 Waco, Texas meeting attended by George Bush, Mexico's President Vincente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin.

U.S. Economic Depression: The Growing Homeless Tent Cities / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Submissions

In Sacramento, California, tent cities populated by the recently made homeless have begun springing up in a scene reminiscent of the Hoover Great Depression era. This is yet another sign of bad economic times, and reflects the need for real change, not based on ideology but on the practical needs of the people.

Reforming the Global Financial System by Flushing Out the Parasites / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNikki Alexander writes: When Benjamin Franklin was called before the British Parliament in 1757 and asked to account for the prosperity in the American colonies. He replied, "That is simple. In the colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one." It was the struggle for financial sovereignty that precipitated the American Revolution when the (Rothschild) Bank of England forced the colonists to give up their own currency.

The Bank of England bought £2 billion ($2.8 billion) of government bonds Wednesday as the UK introduced quantitative easing to kickstart the ailing economy.

U.S. Housing Bubble, Alan Greenspan Still Hasn't Got a Clue / Politics / Central Banks

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the same day that his successor signaled dramatic policy changes that would see the Federal Reserve "take away the punchbowl" before inflating yet another asset bubble, radically altering the way financial market regulators operate in the process, former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan was readying yet another in a long series of op-ed pieces aimed at defending his legacy.

He didn't cause the housing bubble, or so he says.

Time To Stop Squandering Taxpayer's Money / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Hussman is always a good read. This week, in Buckle Up , Hussman is railing about the policies in Washington. Let's tune in.

The misguided policy response from Washington has focused almost exclusively on squandering public money and burdening our children with indebtedness in order to defend the bondholders of mismanaged financial institutions (blame Paulson and Geithner – I've got a lot of respect for our President, but he's been sold a load of garbage by banking insiders).

Watch CNBC and Make Money, Who is Really Making Money? Part1 / Politics / Mainstream Media

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaybe there's a good reason why CNBC has a show called Fast Money. If you follow the advice of these guys, your money is likely to evaporate very fast. Likewise, I'm beginning to see why Cramer's show is called Mad Money. You're likely to get mad if you follow his advice. Or maybe you have to be a mad man to watch it. Cramer, didn't you tell investors to stay in Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers just days before the collapse?

Is the multi-million dollar bailout of this financial mess and house of cards, this phantom wealth mummy hitting air beyond the federal governments' salvage capability?

Can the U.S. Tax Authorities Break Swiss Bank Secrecy? / Politics / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt would seem so clear that the U.SA. Tax Authority attack on UBS is going to break the Swiss secret banking system. Will they succeed? After whacking them with a $780 million fine they are now coming in for another attack demanding the exposure of U.S. Swiss account holders in the bank. They had agreed to disclose the names of 300 U.S. based clients with accounts with U.B.S. in the States. They have and will not agree to disclose the names of U.S. citizens who hold accounts in Switzerland . But the entire body of U.S. citizens holding Swiss bank accounts are worried about this prospect. On top of that, all other foreign Swiss bank account holders are worried too.

Obama Success or Failure, Which is Better for the U.S. Economy? / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk show host and conservative icon Rush Limbaugh recently ignited a firestorm of criticism for expressing his desire that Barack Obama should fail. Democrats, and even some Republicans, suggested that he had put aside his patriotism to wish for an economic collapse that would result in political advantage for conservatives. However, if you believe as I, and apparently Rush, that Obama's plans will prevent recovery, then wishing that they fail to become actual policy is the right thing to do. The problem is that since Mr. Limbaugh has a history of partisanship, and since he did not forcefully criticize the Bush Administration for similar (if slightly more modest) plans, many cannot see past the messenger to recognize the truth in the message.
