Global Deleveraging- Are You Really Prepared for What's Coming? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Kurt_Kasun

I only wish to make a couple of points in this short commentary.

The debacle envisioned by Austrian economists is now becoming an undisputed reality. Don't be fooled by calls for Keynesianism. It might have worked when we were a creditor nation, but now that we have squandered most of our wealth (through Keynesian policies) and are the biggest debtor nation in the history of the world, it will fail miserably this time around...bond yields will soar and our currency will plummet.

What's Next After the Bailout Plan? / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article was written just prior to the announcement of the rejection of the bailout bill but has been qualified to reflect current conditions. Celebrate today's victory! It is a victory for all of us, whether we know it or not. Much thanks to Ron Paul and all the brave souls both Republican and Democrat who withstood their party's commands and instead sided with us, the people of the United States of America !

Financial Markets Crash into a Credit Freeze Ice Age / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ty_Andros

Pre NO Vote Commentary -Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe greatest transfer of wealth in history (from those who hold their money in paper to those that don't) took a GREAT LEAP forward since the last edition of this newsletter. The wall of money which will someday become known as the great REFLATION began in earnest in the last two weeks. The MONETARY flooding we anticipated then has now MATERIALIZED and the initial BLANK checks have been written. A whopper of a BLANK check is due to arrive sometime in the next week (I am writing this on a Sunday morning) when the BAILOUT of the biggest banks and brokers in the world is FINALIZED and we actually get to see 120 pages of POLITICAL compromises. A political compromise means political supporters will BENEFIT while the PUBLIC gets FLEECED.

Financial Catastrophe Entire Global Financial System in Collapse / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Stephen_Lendman


Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crime of the century. The greatest one ever. Author Danny Schechter calls it "Plunder." The title of his important new book on the subprime and overall financial crisis. Economist Michael Hudson and others refer to a kleptocracy. A Ponzi scheme writ large. Maybe an out-of-control Andromeda Strain. An economic one. Deadly. Unrecallable. Science fiction now real life. Potentially catastrophic. World governments trying to contain it. Trying everything but not sure what can work. Maybe only able to paper it over for short-term relief. Buy time but in the end vindicate the maxim that things that can't go on forever, won't.

Investors Reappraise Investment Risks to Include Credit Worthiness / InvestorEducation / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors, not just mortgage lenders, whether owning bonds or stocks, need to pay more attention to credit worthiness now and in the future than they have in the past.

Investors have become used to thinking of risk as merely volatility (standard deviation of return), but there is also absolute risk — the risk of permanent loss of value.

Mainstream Media's Failure to Understand the Credit Crunch / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's is a rule of the universe that every effect has a cause. And so it is with the current financial crisis. Instead of starting with those economic theories -- that should be rightly called fallacies -- we need to take heed of the unfortunate fact that the vast majority of people are getting their information from the media. I say unfortunate because not only are the great majority of journalists incapable of explaining the processes that brought about the crisis, they are also outrageous political bigots who see it as their duty to blame every conservative politician in sight, even if it means lying.

Last Chance for Financial Crisis Truth / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: On this fateful Sunday morning, while Congress inches closer to approving the greatest financial bailout in history, while we teeter on the brink of what the President himself calls "a financial panic," and while you and I enjoy the momentary luxury of a quiet respite, it's time to sit back and take a long, hard look at what's best for us, our country, our children and their children as well.

This is a defining moment of your lifetime and mine. It's the moment I have been writing you about — and helping friends like you prepare for — week after week, month after month.

Banking System in Meltdown, Fed Fights to Keep Dead Banks Alive / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial system is blowing up. Don't listen to the experts; just look at the numbers. Last week, according to Reuters, "U.S. banks borrowed a record amount from the Federal Reserve nearly $188 billion a day on average, showing the central bank went to extremes to keep the banking system afloat amid the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression." The Fed opened the various "auction facilities" to create the appearance that insolvent banks were thriving businesses, but they are not. They're dead; their liabilities exceed their assets.

Credit Crisis Truth: The Real Story Behind the Collapse of AIG / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani: In Part II of his three-story investigation of the credit crisis, Money Morning Contributing Editor Shah Gilani shows us how American International Group, a perfectly sound company that's survived for 89 years, was destroyed by some errant bets on a derivative security called a “credit default swap,” or CDS. It's a story you'll read nowhere else . Editor

There's nothing fundamentally wrong with the core insurance business units of American International Group Inc. ( AIG ). Nothing at all. What imploded the venerable insurance giant was an accumulation of misplaced bets on credit default swaps.

Who to Blame for America's Financial Crisis ? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTime for a reality check - The traditional checks and balances of America's financial system have been deliberately bypassed. The Real Estate industry has encouraged the production of very high risk mortgage applications. Most of the Banking system has ignored its responsibility to monitor the credit worthiness of mortgage applicants. And these worthless debt instruments were then passed on to Wall Street which sliced and diced them into $$ billions of highly questionable securities called Collateralized Debt Obligations, Mortgage Backed Securities, credit default swaps, or whatever other name Wall Street's MBAs could dream up. And of course, everyone dipped their hands into the cookie jar along the way. Millions and billions of dollars. Get rich selling worthless paper.

Senator Jim Bunning, Republican of Kentucky, echoed this sentiment when he said, “The free market for all intents and purposes is dead in America .” These ideologues doth protest too much, methinks.

Historic Week: US Government Avoids Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: NewsLetter

September 22nd , 2008 Issue #27 Vol. 2

Dear Reader,

The financial markets aptly ended a tumultuous week with record busting rallies as Hank Paulson at the US Treasury suspended the FREE MARKET so as to prevent a collapse of the financial system. The two triggering events for the turnaround in stock markets were

a. The SEC banning of short-selling of 799 financial stocks.

b. The US government announcement of the intention to buy up bad bank debt, where the initial outlay will cost the US Tax payer 700 billion.

Credit Crisis Analysis and Conclusions / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we look at a very solid piece of analysis on the world economy from my friends and London business partners Niels Jensen and Jan Wilhelmsen of Absolute Return Partners ( www.arpllp.com ). I find it is quite useful to read the considered opinions of those from outside the US and particularly from people who have developed keen insight from years in the trenches. Niels and Jan are certainly in that category. The world economy is clearly out of balance and they point out where some of the opportunities and problems lie. I think you will find this edition of Outside the Box quite useful. If you care to, you can write them at info@arpllp.com .
