Bernanke Is Untouchable, Except by Ron Paul and the Internet / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke has an overwhelming majority on the Federal Reserve System's Open Market Committee (FOMC), which meets every six weeks to set Federal Reserve policy. There is only one dissenter, Thomas Hoenig, who consistently votes against any expansion of the FOMC's asset purchases, meaning any expansion of the FED's balance sheet: the monetary base. The vote is consistently 10 to 1.

Central Banking 101: What the Fed Can do as "Lender of Last Resort" / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

We’ve seen behind the curtain, as the Fed waved its magic liquidity wand over Wall Street.  Now it’s time to enlist this tool in the service of the people.

The Fed’s invisible hand first really became visible with the bailout of AIG.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in June 2009:

The Fed’s Final Days, The Temple Of Paper Money Is Under Seige / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2008, America suffered a massive economic heart attack. Its doctors, thought to be the world’s best, believed the US to be in good health, having recovered from a similar though smaller crisis in 2000.

But America hadn’t recovered. In fact, the Fed’s palliative for the 2000 crisis, i.e. lower interest rates, soon created an even larger crisis, i.e. the 2002-2006 US housing bubble whose collapse caused global credit markets to contract and investment banks to fall, necessitating government intervention on such a massive scale it led to today’s sovereign debt crisis as private losses were absorbed onto public balance sheets; and, now, in 2010, the crisis continues to fester and spread.

Ron Paul, Audit the Fed in 2011 / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Since the announcement last week that I will chair the congressional subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve, the media response has been overwhelming. The groundswell of opposition to Fed actions among ordinary citizens is reflected not only in the rhetoric coming out of Capitol Hill, but also in the tremendous interest shown by the financial press. The demand for transparency is growing, whether the political and financial establishment likes it or not. The Fed is losing its vaunted status as an institution that somehow is above politics and public scrutiny. Fed transparency will be the cornerstone of my efforts as subcommittee chairman.

Ben Bernanke Digits Juggler about to Drop / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt a circus, there is always a juggler. If he is dressed as a clown, he is not a great juggler. If he is in a sequin-covered tight suit, he is the real thing. He is there to impress us.

The juggler I most remember was a young man who was juggling a bunch of hoops. He was really good . . . until he dropped all of them in his grand finale. They came down in disarray. He picked them up and walked out of the ring. What else could he do? The finale was not so grand.

Bernanke Caught Out in Massive Lie on Money Printing / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLeave it to the Daily Show to express in a humorous way the blatant lies of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke about "Printing Money". The amazing thing is Bernanke exposed himself, in his own words.

The clip notes an interesting discrepancy with what Ben Bernanke told 60 Minutes in his first infomercial on 60 Minutes in March of 2009 and what he said Sunday December 5, 2010.

Bernanke Lied His Way Through a '60 Minutes' Infomercial, He Misinforms with Gusto! / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke ought to write country music songs on the side. They would all have the same theme: I cheated on you honey, but take me back one more time.

His appearance on "60 Minutes" on Sunday, December 5, was clearly his attempt to deal with criticism of the Federal Reserve's policy of purchasing up to $600 billion of Treasury debt – or more, as he admitted.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis past Sunday on the CBS program "60 Minutes", Americans received a massive dose of mendacity from our Fed Chairman. Mr. Bernanke's shaky delivery, and even shakier logic may cause faith in America's economic leadership to evaporate faster than the value of our dollar. In particular, Bernanke delivered two massive distortions:

Can the Fed Become Insolvent? Should We Care? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of Bernanke's plans to purchase $600 billion of longer-term government debt, many academic economists are beginning to worry: Could the Federal Reserve itself become insolvent? In this article I'll explain these fears and I'll argue that the Fed, with its printing press, cannot really go bankrupt the way other corporations can.

The Duel over the Fed Dual Mandate of Inflation and Full Employment / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiven the opposing views of the potentially parsimonious new Congress and the continuously accommodative Federal Reserve, there is a movement afoot among Republicans to eliminate the Fed's "dual mandate." Prior to 1977, the Fed only had one job: maintaining price stability. However, the stagflation of the 1970s inspired politicians to assign another task: promoting maximum employment. This "mission creep" has transformed the Fed from a monetary watchdog into an instrument of social policy. We would do well to give them back their original job.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe hypocrisy of treasury secretary Tim Geithner would be stunning except for the fact hypocrisy from Geithner is pretty much an every day occurrence.

Geithner is blasting Congress for politicizing the Fed, while doing the same thing himself. To top it off, the Fed itself is politicizing the Fed by interfering and commenting on Fiscal policy while bitching about Congress commenting on monetary policy.

Bernanke's Crybaby Blabber Speech at ECB Conference / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSay what you will about Alan Greenspan, he was never a whiner. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about present Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. Bernanke's speech on Friday at a conference for the European Central Bank (ECB) was so full of crybaby blabber that attendees must have thought they'd ducked into a Frankfort daycare center by mistake. What an embarrassment! For nearly an hour, Bernanke went on and on about how mean China is and how they manipulate their currency to gain competitive advantage. It was surreal; like listening to a serial arsonist complain about his wife smoking in bed.

Perhaps Bernanke And Geithner Should Try Acting? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Richard_J_Greene

When Ronald Reagan became President of the United States some people were surprised that an actor could reach such a high level of government service. Do you think maybe it could work in reverse and that these two in government "service", Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner, could make it in the acting business? They certainly have had some on the job training and I guess you could say their ongoing screen tests have passed with flying colors.
