Bernanke's ability to understand and synthesize the views of his colleagues goes a long way toward explaining how he has revolutionized the Federal Reserve, which under his leadership has deployed trillions of dollars to try to contain the worst economic downturn in 80 years.

The Financial War Against Iceland Part 2 / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleContinues from Part1 - Nations that have not paid their debts - Let us draw up a roster of nations that have annulled their debts – or run them up with no intention of paying. The list starts with the world’s largest debtor, the United States. Its government owes $4 trillion to foreign central banks. A moment’s thought will show that there is no way it can pay, even if it wanted to do so. The United States is running a chronic trade deficit, on top of which is a deepening outflow of military spending.

The Financial War Against Iceland, Being Defeated by Debt is as Deadly as Outright Military Warfare / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProf Michael Hudson writes: Iceland is under attack – not militarily­ but financially. It owes more than it can pay. This threatens debtors with forfeiture of what remains of their homes and other assets. The government is being told to sell off the nation’s public domain, its natural resources and public enterprises to pay the financial gambling debts run up irresponsibly by a new banking class. This class is seeking to increase its wealth and power despite the fact that its debt-leveraging strategy already has plunged the economy into bankruptcy. On top of this, creditors are seeking to enact permanent taxes and sell off public assets to pay for bailouts to themselves.

Financial Crisis Blaming the Culture of Greed? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal recently suggested that a ‘culture of greed' may be to blame for today's crisis.  Billionaire investor Stephen Jarislowsky has said that he thinks ‘extreme' greed was to blame. And nestled within the mob of protestors ahead of last week's G20 meeting was a little girl, no more than 5 or 6-years of age, holding a sign saying ‘You Greedy BosTards'. Let us simply say, while acknowledging the views of the Wall Street Journal and Mr. Jarislowsky, that the protesting little girl may have been misled.

How FAS 157 Mark-to-Market Helped Slow the Economy / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's been a lot of discussion of how the FAS 157 mark-to-market accounting rule may have contributed to the current deep recession. The charts below from Citi Research (using Federal Reserve data) make a pretty compelling case for the unforeseen damage caused by the strict application of FAS 157. We are among those who applaud the Financial Accounting Standards Board for taking action this week to add flexibility in how the mark-to-market rule is used going forward.

The Gold Stocks Sector and The Most Powerful Indicator / Commodities / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Gold sector has been performing relatively well over the past month. The price of gold has broken trend line support but is still holding horizontal support and forming a bull flag. Gold stocks and the broad market have been performing well and that has boosted the price of gold stock. Gold bullion has been under pressure, because money is being pulled out of physical gold and put to work in equities, which provides much more potential than gold at current levels.

G20 New World Disorder and Sell the S&P 500 Index / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North writes: The article was all over the web within minutes. It was first published on Bloomberg's site.

"We cannot see large upside for the S&P 500 above the 825–850 level," Morgan Stanley U.S. equity strategist Jason Todd wrote in a report yesterday. "In the rush to buy a cyclical recovery, it seems earnings or valuation no longer matters. We would be comfortable with this view if the earnings trough was closer, but it is not."

Current Financial Crisis Russia Debt Default Risk Lower than 1998 / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Pravda

The current economic crisis will be a lot harder than the financial collapse of 1998, a recent report from the World Bank said. WB experts believe that Russia will have to deal with severe problems as a result of the crisis. The economic growth in the country will decline considerably and the recovery will take a much longer time in comparison with the critical period of 1998, when Russia declared default.

Rescuing the United States from the Gigantic Derivatives Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a bird...It's a plane...No, it's Spitzer to the Rescue - If Obama is serious about restoring confidence in the markets, he should replace current SEC chief Mary Schapiro with Eliot Spitzer. That would send a message to the world that the president is through messing around. Schapiro is another Wall Street toady who believes that the markets can regulate themselves. As the head of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or Finra, she stood by while the financial giants increased their leverage to unsustainable levels and spread their derivatives-contagion to every part of the system.

U.S. Banks Operating Without Reserve Requirements / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBanks typically have 3% of their assets in cash in order to meet customer needs. Since 1960, banks have been allowed to use this “vault cash” to satisfy their reserve requirements. Today, bank reserve requirements have fallen to the point where they are now exceeded by vault cash, which means lowering reserve requirements to zero would have virtually no impact on the banking system. US banks are already operating free of any reserve constraints. The graph below shows reserve requirements falling to zero over the last fifty years.
