Bernanke Is Stuttering, Stammering, Panicking / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North writes: Bernanke video: He stutters; he stammers; he is in visible panic mode over Ron Paul's bill to audit the Federal Reserve. Watch it. You'll love it! Then send it to your friends.

Usually, when Ben Bernanke is interviewed, he has the demeanor of a college professor in the presence of freshman students. Of course, as a full professor, he did not have to teach freshmen. That is for untenured assistant professors to do. Stammering and stuttering are therefore a real departure for him. There is a reason for this.

Dead Banks Walking / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn recent weeks, the financial world has been dazzled by strikingly high earnings reported by our leading investment banks... or at least what we used to call investment banks. The numbers are reminiscent of another era - the one that came to a crashing end last September. Today's euphoria was keyed to the record $3.44 billion 2nd quarter profit announced by that branch office of the Treasury Department also known as Goldman Sachs. Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, and State Street also chipped in with strong numbers.

Mark-to-Market Accounting Scapegoat for the Financial Crash / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBetsy Hansen writes: If you are a dedicated reader of the financial papers you may have fallen for the line that mark-to-market accounting rules are a major contributor to the financial crisis. I caution you to examine that argument with a great deal of skepticism. Mark-to-market accounting rules did make things worse in the financial markets, but this ill-conceived rule was not the primary cause of the crisis.

Banks Still in Big Trouble; Protect Your Portfolio / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: Since the debt crisis began with the eruption of the subprime mess in 2007, Wall Street pundits have declared “an end to the crisis” at least three times: in mid-2007, in early 2008, and now.

Each time, the government intervened with massive amounts of money to tamp down fear. Each time, investors rushed back to take risks. And each time, stocks rallied sharply.

We have avoided Armageddon, at least for now. The cost to the US taxpayer has been a few trillion. Some in the media are loudly announcing the end of the recession. But we are not out of the woods yet. There are a few more bumps in the road. Actually, some of them are quite steep hills. As big as the subprime problem? Maybe.

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the former Investment Banks being granted Commercial Banking status due to the unfolding financial crisis in late 2008 – it was widely reported in the mainstream financial press that this “change” would mean that these banks would be subject to more oversight and hence, more transparency would result regarding their derivatives activities.

The company is one of the biggest lenders to American businesses. But despite all the flak that's been flying around financial firms over the last two years, it's hardly a name that trips off the tongue.

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: Just as the authorities were touting the “end of the financial crisis,” all heck has broken loose again …

We have a new surge in unemployment, and even without counting those who are excluded from the official numbers, 14.7 million are now jobless, the most since records dating back to 1948. Worse, for the first time since the Great Depression, every single job created after the prior recession has been wiped out.

Great Banking Confusion / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mansoor_H_Khan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe (usually) transparent process of inter-bank lending works so well that most of the time we don't even think about it. This process has largely weaned the public away from physical paper money. Note that most money (about 90%) now exists only as entries on bank ledgers, backed by loans (debt).   Also, note that possessing physical paper dollars is like having equity in the economic output of the United States of America, and has no credit risk associated to it. Physical paper money is not anyone's liability.

Objective Analysis of the Increase in the Fed's Balance Sheet / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn recent weeks two prominent economic commentators - Arthur Laffer and Alan Greenspan - have warned about the inflationary potential emanating from the unprecedented increase in the Fed's balance sheet. Yes, as shown in Chart 1, reserves created by the Fed have increased by a staggering $858 billion in the 12 months ended May. But excess reserves on the books of depository institutions have increased by almost as much, $842 billion (see Chart 2). So, in the 12 months ended May, 98% of the increase in reserves created by the Fed has simply ended up as idle reserves on the books of depository institutions.
