Banking Sector Groundhog Day Hits U.S. Treasury Bonds / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Have you ever seen the fantastic Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day?”
Murray plays Pittsburgh weatherman Phil Connors who's forced to cover the annual February unveiling of Punxsutawney Phil.

He clearly isn't thrilled. And his bad attitude shines through in several hilarious episodes. Fate punishes Murray as a result, by forcing him to re-live Groundhog Day over and over again until he improves his attitude and can win the love of his co-worker, Rita.

Wall Street Deception, Political Quest for Remedy Positives for Gold Safehaven / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an interesting time we live in! By now, anyone who feels burned by the establishment, whether the Wall Street banksters (fraud kings) or US Congressional representatives (paid lobbyist clients), or US Congress banking committees (bribed Wall Street tools), or a private hedge fund con man (protected by regulators), or financial markets (victims of naked shorting), or an employer (from foreign plant & equipment investments), beware. More deception and betrayal and smokescreens and outright lies lie directly ahead.

Financial Crisis, Consequences and Investment Opportunities / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSharon A. Daniels writes: It has been said that the Chinese alphabet uses the same character to represent both the words ‘crisis' AND ‘opportunity.' While this isn't exactly correct in a literal translation of Mandarin — the meaning comes close enough.

Financial markets are a lot like this too. We have all heard: “for every buyer, there's a seller.” In other words, one investor's panic can also be considered another's profit opportunity.

Right now, after recent close calls with instant death, these two megabanks are on life support, receiving massive transfusions of government capital. But they're still hemorrhaging, and no one in Washington has found a cure.

Protectionism and the Global Banking System Technical Insolvency / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I bring you two different articles as an offering for Outside the Box. As a way to introduce the first, let me give you the quote from Merrill Lynch economist David Rosenberg about the rising threat of global trade protectionism:

"The Financial Times weighs in on the rising threat of global trade protectionism in today's Lex Column on page 14 ("Economic Patriotism"). The FT points out that the stimulus packages of many countries include "buy local" provisions. At home, there is a proposed inclusion of a 'Buy American' provision in the economic recovery package and this could set off trade retaliation from importers of US goods. Here is what the FT had to say, 'It was trade protectionism that made the 1930s Depression "Great". Congress would do well to understand that it is in everyone's interest to keep trade open today.'"

Financial Crisis Hits Obama Presidency as Republicans Plan to Oppose $825 Billion Stimulus / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon III writes: President Barack Obama's $825 billion stimulus plan heads to the floor of the House of Representatives this week, with House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, saying many in his party will vote against the package unless significant changes are made.

“Right now, given the concerns that we have over the size of this package and all of the spending in this package, we don't think it's going to work,” Rep. Boehner said yesterday (Sunday) on NBC-TV 's “Meet the Press.” “And so if it's the plan that I see today, put me down in the ‘No' column.”

The Economic Perversity of our Banking System / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Joseph_Toronto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently wrote about the cause of this recession/depression being a collapse of the money supply. The money supply is collapsing because money is literally evaporating with each loan default and bankruptcy and is accelerated by the reverse multiplier effect of fractional reserve banking. Furthermore, given that the collapsing money supply is causing recession, banks are making things worse by doing exactly what banks are supposed to do to preserve their rapidly eroding capital. They stop their lending in a risky economy and buy risk free T-bills or earn interest in their excess reserve account at the Fed. This is the correct thing to do for bank stockholders, but incredibly and perversely is exactly the wrong thing to do for the economy.

Great Britain- The “Rust Belt” of Global Finance / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Think about Michigan or about Ohio's Mahoning Valley in the 1980s. Both were famous for industries that were world leaders in their time. Yet, once those industries decayed, large parts of both areas became wastelands of home foreclosures, crime and alcoholism.

The decline of the global financial services industry from its unsustainable 2006 peak may produce a similar effect in a once economically thriving country – Britain.

Credit Crisis Explained: History of Debt Bubbles and Long-term Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a reason I call this column Outside the Box. I try to get material that forces us to think outside our normal comfort zones and challenges our common assumptions. And this week's letter from Hoisington Investment Management Company does just that. Let me give you two quotes to pique your interest: "Monetary policy works by creating the environment for a renewed borrowing and lending cycle. This cycle would require that the debt to GDP ratio, which is already at a record level, grow even higher. Would such an outcome really be that desirable when the controlling problem of the U.S. economy is too much improperly financed debt? If the Fed were able to engender an increase in the debt to GDP ratio, this might merely serve to postpone the reckoning of the current debt levels while laying the foundation for an even more vicious unwinding down the road.

Bailed Out Banks Seek More Money to Fill Financial Black Holes / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Strengthening or Weakening the Economy? - The economic situation continues to deteriorate this week as past and future bailouts were discussed on Capitol Hill. The debate was over the accountability of already disbursed TARP money, and on whether or not to release remaining funds. Banks that had already been bailed out before are looking for more money to fill the black holes that are their balance sheets, warning that they are simply too big to fail.
