Socialist Republican Corruption of Capitalist Free Market Mechanisms / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: You can't possibly have hidden yourself from the news of the $700-billion planned bailout that's working through Congress this week. And I won't mince words — I consider it a big slap in the face for the free market system.

Henry Paulson repeated over and over again exactly how agitated, disgusted, annoyed, infuriated, angered, embarrassed, and irritated he felt about asking for this amount of money, or any money at all. Sounds sincere if you stop it right there.

A pleasant voice said she was from the—oh that really doesn't make any difference. Both presidential candidates have volunteer minions on the phones and Internet day after day, month after month, for what seems like years.

Nouriel Roubini: Paulson Bailout Plan is a Disgrace / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInquiring minds are interested in Nouriel Roubini's thoughts on the Paulson Plan. Please consider the RGE Conference Call on the Economic and Financial Outlook..and why the Treasury TARP bailout is flawed .

The Treasury plan (even in its current version agreed with Congress) is very poorly conceived and does not contain many of the key elements of a sound and efficient and fair rescue plan. Like in my 10 step HOME plan many other economists and commentators (Charles Calomiris, Raghu Rajan, Kotlikoff and Mehrling, Luigi Zingales, Martin Wolf, Barry Ritholtz, Chris Whalen and twenty others whose views have been featured this week in the RGE Monitor group blogs) have presented ideas that would have minimized the cost to the US taxpayer of a resolution of this financial crisis. It is a disgrace that no professional economist was consulted by Congress or invited to present his/her views at the Congressional hearings on the Treasury rescue plan.

Bailout Plan Means Americans Making a Deal with the Devil / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust yesterday, Henry Paulson's "bailout" bill, with only a few anti-Wall Street, pro-Main Street fig leaves slapped on by Democrats, appeared ready to sail through Congress on a bi-partisan tide. But something funny happened on the way to the printing press. It appears as if some conservative House Republicans are reluctant to sell their souls and ditch any remaining pretense towards American-style capitalism.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is time to take back America from Wall Street and return it to Main Street USA.

Treasury Secretary Paulson is attempting to ram down the throats of US taxpayers, a $700 billion bailout of Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), Morgan Stanley (MS) and other many other banks that participated in questionable if not fraudulent mortgage lending schemes.

The New President and the Global Landscape: McCain's Foreign Policy Stance / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn McCain is the Republican candidate for president. This means he is embedded in the Republican tradition. That tradition has two roots, which are somewhat at odds with each other: One root is found in Theodore Roosevelt's variety of internationalism, and the other in Henry Cabot Lodge's opposition to the League of Nations. Those roots still exist in the Republican Party. But accommodations to the reality the Democrats created after World War II — and that Eisenhower, Nixon and, to some extent, Reagan followed — have overlain them. In many ways, the Republican tradition of foreign policy is therefore more complex than the Democratic tradition.

Bailout Plan Talks Collapse Overnight as Congress Rebels / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHank Paulson, the ex-CEO of Goldman Sachs investment bank, eager to bailout his Wall Street buddies to the tune of an initial down payment of $700 billion as well as protecting his own estimated portfolio of $600 million aided by his good buddy at the US Fed Ben Bernanke has hit a major hitch as bailout talks disintegrate late Thursday.

Bailout Crisis - What Happens Next / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Justice_Litle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout further ado, here's a quick tour of the five things you should know...

1) The bailout is one of staggeringly massive proportions.
As I write to you in the wee hours of Monday morning, prior to my transatlantic flight, the number being bandied about for the size of the bailout is $700 billion. Keep in mind, too, that this is an opening number. It doesn't necessarily include relief for upside-down homeowners, strapped consumers, foreign banks or many other potential “extras” that could be added to the tally.
And yet, all by itself, $700 billion is a breathtaking number. How breathtaking, you ask?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Sells Out on Bailout Plan / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

MarketWatch is reporting House Speaker Pelosi reassures market on rescue plan .

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that financial markets can rest assured that Congress will act on the White House plan to buy up to $700 billion in toxic debt. Pelosi said the exact timing of the House vote would depend on the outcome of closed-door meetings currently underway on Capitol Hill. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reassured financial markets that a rescue plan would come to the House floor soon. "Please be assured that we will have a package that will speak to the issue in a very substantial way to send a message to the markets of our seriousness," Pelosi said at a press conference. The plan of throwing $700 billion at a problem cannot possibly work. What's worse is the structured $700 billion is a mere down payment.

America's Financial Apocalypse / Politics / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat Can YOU Do as an American?

Wake Up - My advice is to find some people who you trust; those with proven track records, those who are not tied to the television shows. Figure it out. You are only going to be misled by the mainstream media. They will only come clean after it is too late, fooling you into thinking they actually warned you in a timely manner. But as you can see, this is simply not a reflection of reality. That is how the dotcom charade worked and that is how this one if playing out. It's game that is played. Stop being played and become a player.

Urgent Financial Crisis Appeal : Recapitalize Financial Institutions Rather than Bail Out Debt / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the coming days, Congress may authorize $700 billion to buy bad debt from financial institutions. Even if all challenges of the plan were to be overcome, the plan does not address one of the fundamental reasons why credit markets don't function properly: the under-capitalization of financial institutions. Under-capitalized financial institutions may seek to repair their balance sheet rather than engage in lending activities.

How to End the Credit Crisis at No Cost to US Taxpayers / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: While it's clear from the current credit crisis that our financial system is at a critical juncture, it's just as clear that there's no agreement over how we should fix the problems we face. The reality is that neither the plan put forth by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. "Hank" Paulson Jr . - nor any of the addendums offered up by Congress or the lobbyists - will resolve this crisis.

The key culprits are the structured financial products that reside on the balance sheets of banks, dead investment banks, insurance companies, hedge funds and all manner of other duped and unsuspecting investor entities worldwide , as well as the proliferation of the unregulated $62 trillion credit default swaps (CDS) market.

OK that buys time, but (a) at what cost and (b) who knows if $700 billion will be enough? Some people say it will take $5 Trillion.

Fascist Business System Breeds Corruption & Receivership / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States has transformed itself, the most radical degraded aspects having occurred in the last eight years. Many might object or cringe at repeated mention of the Fascist Business Model implemented by the Clinton Administration, and carried to extreme by the Bush II Administration. It is a harsh departure from Beacon of Freedom. Too bad, fact of life! This merger of state and big business in the midst of a climax, the biggest display of exported financial toxin in modern history, and the disintegration of the financial structure for the nation owning the world reserve currency.
