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.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo that's the BIG PLAN unveiled to the Senate Banking Committee yesterday, put the assets that you don't want to "Mark to Market" in quarantine, and save them for a rainy day.

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.

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

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge Friedman writes: Barack Obama is the Democratic candidate for president. His advisers in foreign policy are generally Democrats. Together they carry with them an institutional memory of the Democratic Party's approach to foreign policy, and are an expression of the complexity and divisions of that approach. Like the their Republican counterparts, in many ways they are going to be severely constrained as to what they can do both by the nature of the global landscape and American resources. But to some extent, they will also be constrained and defined by the tradition they come from. Understanding that tradition and Obama's place is useful in understanding what an Obama presidency would look like in foreign affairs.

Bernanke and Paulson Hoodwink American Tax Payers Into Buying Crap / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke bailout plan calls for $700 billion in taxpayer funds to be used to purchase assets that will in all likelihood be worth considerably less in the future.  As for the contention that the assets to be purchased could be worth more in the future than prices paid today, if there was any validity to this speculation the bailout plan in question would not be required as the assets in question would have already found a buyer.

US Treasury Bailout Auction Scam and How To Stop It / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs more and more details of the Paulson proposal become clear, the smellier the package is.

Today Bernanke admitted the Treasury has no intention of conducting a true reverse auction. Inquiring minds are considering Fed Chairman Bernanke Clarifies Government's $700 Billion Proposal .

"I believe that under the Treasury program, auctions and other mechanisms could be designed that will give the market good information on what the hold-to-maturity price is for a large class of mortgage-related assets. If the Treasury bids for and then buys assets at a price close to the hold to maturity price, there will be substantial benefits," said Bernanke.

The Paulson Bail-Out Plan is Mortgage Fraud on Historic Scale? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe $750 billion banking system bailout proposed by Secretary of the Treasury Henry M. Paulson met with a cool reception on Capitol Hill this morning at a hearing of the Senate Banking Committee. Nevertheless, a bill is likely to pass both houses of Congress within the next couple of weeks. As Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) said, it's “a necessary evil.” But is it also an example of “mortgage fraud” on a historic scale?

The New President and the Global Landscape: US Foreign Policy Part1 / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has often been said that presidential elections are all about the economy. That just isn't true. Harry Truman's election was all about Korea. John Kennedy's election focused on missiles, Cuba and Berlin. Lyndon Johnson's and Richard Nixon's elections were heavily about Vietnam. Ronald Reagan's first election pivoted on Iran. George W. Bush's second election was about Iraq. We won't argue that presidential elections are all about foreign policy, but they are not all about the economy. The 2008 election will certainly contain a massive component of foreign policy.

Mushroom Cloud over Wall Street as US Constitution Burns / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese are dark times. While you were sleeping the cockroaches were busy about their work, rummaging through the US Constitution, and putting the finishing touches on a scheme to assert absolute power over the nation's financial markets and the country's economic future. Industry representative Henry Paulson has submitted legislation to congress that will finally end the pretense that Bush controls anything more than reading the lines from a 4' by 6' teleprompter situated just inches from his lifeless pupils. Paulson is in charge now, and the coronation is set for sometime early next week. He rose to power in a stealthily-executed Bankster's Coup in which he, and his coterie of dodgy friends, declared martial law on the US economy while elevating himself to supreme leader.
