By: Richard_C_Cook

U.S. Economy Disintegrating as Government Supports Zombie Banks / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USGovt and financial system is growing deep commitments to support dead entities. Their business models have failed. They are bankrupt. Although with faulty business model, often l aced with fraud, they have been fully adopted by the USGovt and US Federal Reserve. They are considered too big to fail. Or one should say, they are too connected to the power structure, or they are too intertwined with explosive financial devices, or one from their own tribe is running the Dept of Treasury. Capitalism embraces the Darwinian principles bound by survival of the fittest. The United States bears absolutely no resemblance to such principles anymore, at least at the upper corporate echelons.

Destruction of Capital at an Ever Faster Rate, Workers Pay the Price / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Professor_Emeritus

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThou shalt not crucify labor on this cross of paper money, a message to American Labor Leaders

The “crime of 1873” - My title is a paraphrase of the 1896 battle-cry of William Jennings Bryan during his presidential bid. He was talking about ‘crucifying mankind on a cross of gold'. Bryan was protesting against the unconstitutional closing of the U.S. Mint to silver. Congress inadvertently suspended the unlimited coinage of the standard silver dollar, which it had no authority to do under the Constitution. Bryan called it “the crime of 1873”.

Inflated Egos Next Bubble To Burst / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a follow-up to last week's commentary on the chronic complacency that has gripped the investing public, a population that thinks ‘ big daddy ' will bail them out of all troubles forever apparently, once its realized by the masses this belief is a falsehood , a sense of panic will enter the collective psyche, and the issue of our inflated egos will finally be addressed. Of course in the meantime the bureaucracy is doing a great job of keeping the mob's attention off of real issues, much in the spirit of Rome's bread and circuses so long ago now. In knowing this the question begs, ‘have we not progressed past the failings of our forefathers in matters of society?'

The Paradox of Deleveraging Will Be Broken / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are clearly not having as much fun taking off leverage as we had putting it on, or at least the vast majority are not. This week in Outside the Box we look at some very thought-provoking insights from my good friend Paul McCulley, who helps us think about how we got here and what will be the end point. From the letter:

"But what ailed Lehman was but a manifestation of what ailed, and ails the global financial intermediary system: the presumption that grossly levered positions in illiquid assets can always be funded, because those doing the funding will always assume the borrower is a going concern."

Financial Markets Wild Ride Between Fear and Optimism / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA new bout of fear gripped financial markets during the past week, causing the slide in global stocks, commodities and emerging-market assets to deepen. As investors' angst escalated, positions in risky assets were liquidated in exchange for perceived safe havens such as the US dollar, government bonds and gold bullion.

“We have seen fundamental selling, technical selling, forced selling (deleveraging), short selling, capitulation selling and selling due to ennui,” commented David Fuller ( Fullermoney ).
