U.S. Debt Bomb Detonation Expedited by 5 Years / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

A Treasury Department report to Congress last week stated that total U.S. debt will climb to $19.6 trillion by 2015, as opposed to the 2019 date previously estimated. Treasury also estimated that total U.S. debt will top 13.6 trillion this year and would rise to 102% of GDP by 2015 as well. And most astonishingly, the report projected that the publicly traded debt (debt excluding intragovernmental obligations) would rise to $14 trillion by 2015, up from last year’s debt of “just” $7.5 trillion.

The U.S. Federal Government Debt and Deficit - Congressman, Heal Thyself! / Economics / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn one of this past Sunday's morning political talk shows, I heard a congressman say that the runaway federal government spending had to stop. Congressman, sir, although the spending continues to increase, the rate of growth in that spending has slowed enormously. In the 12 months ended May 2010, the accumulated spending by the federal government totaled $3.437 trillion, enough to keep the late Senator Dirksen spinning in his grave for near eternity. Although an admittedly high level, this 12-month accumulated total federal spending was only 2.6% higher than the 12-month accumulated total federal spending for May 2009 (see Chart 1).

Two Decades Of Debt Induced Greed Unraveling into the Greater Depression / Politics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are currently in the midst of a Fourth Turning. This twenty year Crisis began during the 2005 - 2008 timeframe with the collapse of the housing bubble and subsequent repercussions on the worldwide financial system. It is progressing as expected, with the financial crisis deepening and leading to tensions across the world. It will eventually morph into military conflict, as all prior Fourth Turnings have. The progression from High to Awakening through the Unraveling took from 1946 until 2006. The most treacherous period of the Saeculm is upon us.

Misreading Economic Indicators Leads to Bad Policy / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll this talk about how borrowing costs are so low that Washington couldn’t possibly be facing any sort of a debt crisis – that the 3.2 percent yield on the ten-year note is somehow a vote of confidence in policies coming out of the nation’s capitol – makes me think that, just as the insane fixation on a low consumer price index was a major contributor to the financial crisis, signals coming from U.S. debt markets are being similarly misinterpreted today and this may ultimately lead to an even bigger crisis in our not-too-distant future.

Another War Is Required to Burn $13 Trillion of U.S. National Debt / Politics / US Debt

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe national debt of the United States reached the record level of $13 trillion, which means that every US citizen owes the world $42,000. It seems that the US administration does not seem to care much about the fact. Barack Obama believes that it is the fault of the previous government. Obama stated during his speech at Pittsburg that his administration was not guilty of the enormous national debt. He said that he took office during the time of the crisis, when the economic recession in the country resulted in the creation of a huge hole of $3 trillion in the budget of the country.

Welcome to Oakland - The Model City / Politics / US Debt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat title is straight from the City of Oakland’s official website.  I have to agree 100% with the City of Oakland, they are The Model City.  They are The Model of and for Insanity and stupidity.  They are The Model City for financial disaster. 

On a May 5th 2010 article (Oakland Faces Pension Costs, Higher Taxes) for the San Francisco Chronicle, Matthai Kuruvila reports, "The City of Oakland faces a budget short fall of $42 million, which will balloon to $58.7 million by June 2011.  The City of Oakland owes a back payment of $43 million towards the old Policemen and Firemen retirement system."  The Oakland teacher’s union is threatening to strike. Channel 4 new in  report, the City of Oakland just approval to send out pink slip notifications to  416 non teacher city workers.  As is the case with every municipality, the fiscal year ends June 30th, 2009.  It’s just a few weeks away.

E.U. Bailout Just Delays Inevitable Sovereign Debt Default / Interest-Rates / US Debt

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReplacing most of Europe's colorful notes and various coins less than a decade ago, the euro is on the brink of extinction, according to Trader Tracks' Roger Wiegand, sharing news and views of Euroland's critical condition with Gold Report readers in this exclusive interview. Roger says the euro at $1.20 is the "line in the sand where big trouble will start. . .and that's dangerously close." On the other side of the world, he sees China doing well now, but doesn't pin his hopes on China as the engine for global economic growth as so many others do. In fact, he says things there are "fraying a bit on the edges." So, is there a white horse waiting in the wings to lead the world back to economic good health? Read on. . .

Sovereign Debt Crisis, America, PIIGS “R” Us too? / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pollaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title of this essay may be a play on words but the facts are nothing of the sort.  Indeed, the facts suggest that the financial position of the U.S. government may not be all that much better than the financial position of the governments of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece or Spain, the so-called PIIGS.  In fact, given the agenda the Obama administration has set for America, one so far distinguished by ever larger government spending programs being financed by ever larger amounts of debt, the U.S. government may be well on its way to becoming PIIGS “R” Us.

U.S. Budget Deficit and Debt Landmines Dead Ahead! / Economics / US Debt

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Chris Wood, Jake Weber, and Vedran Vuk, The Casey Report write: Hearing President Obama’s economic peptalks, you might be under the impression that the U.S. needs to keep spending for just a little while longer to stimulate the economy – but then will swear off big deficits.

Reinforcing the point, to address concerns stirred by a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) forecast that the U.S. government will accumulate total deficits in excess of $6 trillion over the next decade, in February President Obama issued an executive order to create a bipartisan fiscal commission. The commission’s task is to deliver recommendations to the president by December 1 for limiting future deficits to 3% of GDP. (The FY 2009 deficit approached 10% of GDP. The FY 2010 deficit will probably go even higher.)
