Why TALF is Bad for America / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) announcements bring to mind Einstein's definition of insanity – “doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results”. It is well documented that securitization of loans, use of leverage, and government intervention in the free markets helped inflate assets bubbles, fostered a culture of debt, and distorted the efficient allocation of limited resources in our economy. If you want a good real world example, Fannie Mae bonds guaranteed by the government, backed by a pool of subprime mortgages, and bought using borrowed money (leverage) touches most of the bases.

Financial Crisis Big Picture: What Can We Do? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Rudy_Avizius

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Part 1 of this series, we examined how our “leaders” and “experts” ignored the warning signs of an impending economic storm and ended up with huge trade deficits, growing budget deficits, rising consumer debt, the collapse and loss of trust for our financial sector, the erosion of our middle class, significantly increased corporate debt levels, the United States as the world's largest debtor nation, a planet on the verge of potentially catastrophic climate change, and out of control population growth. We essentially had a system that was not sustainable.

Fed Refuses to Release Bank Lending Data, Insists on Secrecy The Fed refused yesterday to disclose the names of the borrowers and the loans, alleging that it would cast “a stigma” on recipients of more than $1.9 trillion of emergency credit from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.

Systemic Failure of Capitalism and the Collapse of the Real Economy / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the 1929 October 24, 28 and 29 market crash, the weekly entertainment industry magazine Variety (on October 30) published its most famous ever headline: "Wall Street Lays an Egg." In October 2008, history repeated, and since the October 2007 peak, equity prices plunged over 50% after the Dow and S & P (in February) posted their second worst ever monthly percentage declines - topped only in 1933 during the depths of the Great Depression. So far, the current market drop matches its 1929 - 1932 pace, and like then, shows no signs of abating.

Financial Crisis Big Picture: How Did We Get Here? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the environmental, financial, and economic situation continues to deteriorate around us, we need to step back and take a look at the big picture. We need to see how we ended up in this economic mess, what the government response has been, and what we can do to climb out of this hole that we have collectively dug ourselves into. We are starting to see that our perceived prosperity has really been an illusion and was totally unsustainable.

Is Government Stimulus Spending the Answer? / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This week, Congress and the administration once again showed their lack of economic understanding, as they ramped up spending to record levels. On the surface, maybe it does look to some like the economic crisis is a liquidity problem, that the economy is in trouble because money is not changing hands at the pace it once did in the boom years. They believe that to get back to a booming economy money needs to start changing hands again - and the quickest way to do this is for the federal government to massively expand spending to pump new money into the system. If this is the extent of their understanding, no wonder they call for spending, taxing, bailouts and inflation.

Financial Crisis Conspiracy Theory / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Chamberlain writes: Sermon From The Corporate Church - Hurricane winds pound at the gates of Fortress America and our leaders send out the order for more straw and sand to pound into the widening cracks. The harder the winds of change blow the more apparent it becomes that our “leaders” cannot lead, when they themselves await orders from above. As our house of cards flies apart at the seams, the master planners send their minions scrambling to salvage their disintegrating investments, worrying only about their “property,” caring less about the human life that is huddled in fear within.

President Barack Obama’s Fiscal Year 2009 Budget / Politics / US Debt

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The Last Picture Show” was a 1971 film depicting the decay of small town America. It took place in the fictitious town of Anarene, Texas. We hear a distant tune reminiscent of America’s high and lonely places and the sound of a dry wind blowing. It’s March 2010 in the tiny West Texas town of Anarene. Nothing much happens here any more. The last business shut down a couple of years ago. It was a cement plant that went broke after the housing bubble burst and the banks stopped lending. The kids out of high school drive their jalopies from one end of Main Street to the other past boarded-up storefronts.

Obamanomics Will Destroy What's Left of the U.S. Economy / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his first televised speech before Congress, President Obama asserted that prosperity will return once the government restores the flow of credit in the economy. It may come as a surprise to him, but an economy cannot run on consumer loans. Furthermore, credit stopped flowing in the U.S. for a very good reason: there was no more savings left to loan. Government efforts to simply make credit available, without rebuilding productive capacity or increasing savings, are doomed to destroy what's left of our economy.
