Can a Central Bank Go Broke? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCentralized monetary authorities enjoy a privileged position in the current monetary system. People tend to view the economists and politicians at these institutions as demigods, individuals who if given enough resources will ensure that the economy continues an ever-advancing and smooth trajectory. However, unlike the Greek demigods of yore, today's central bankers are mere mortals who must work within the confines and constraints of the institution that they head.

Bernanke’s Victory Lap / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite vocal criticism of the Federal Reserve’s stewardship of the economy over the past decade, President Obama’s renomination of Ben Bernanke to a second term as Fed Chairman nevertheless served to reassure and boost financial markets. While it is true that markets tend to crave predictability from government, rewarding the continuation of horrible Bush-era policies is perhaps pushing the boundaries of nostalgia. More interestingly, President Obama, who campaigned for ‘change,’ has clearly come down once again on the side of continuity.

The Buzz over Bernanke Reappointment as Fed Chairman / Politics / Central Banks

By: Michael_Pento

Last week’s buzz in Jackson Hole Wyoming and around Wall Street is whether or not Banana Ben Bernanke should be reappointed to the Fed Chair. CNBC also held a panel discussing this issue with Bob McTeer (former President of the Dallas Fed). The consensus was that it was ridiculous not to have Barack Obama indicate he would serve another term as soon as possible. The agreed upon reason being that no one could do a better job than he has done.

Why the Federal Reserve Bank Must Die / Politics / Central Banks

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value ---- zero.” – Voltaire

“The Federal Reserve in collaboration with the giant banks has created the greatest financial crisis the world has ever seen. The foolish notion that unlimited amounts of money and credit created out of thin air can provide sustainable economic growth has delivered this crisis to us. Instead of economic growth and stable prices, (The Fed) has given us a system of government and finance that now threatens the world financial and political institutions. Pursuing the same policy of excessive spending, debt expansion and monetary inflation can only compound the problems that prevent the required corrections. Doubling the money supply didn’t work, quadrupling it won’t work either.  Buying up the bad debt of privileged institutions and dumping worthless assets on the American people is morally wrong and economically futile. Representative from Texas Ron Paul questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke

The Federal Reserve is Immoral / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring the first few days of each month comes a task that is increasingly approached with dread around here and, unfortunately, that condition is likely to persist for some time.

Shortly after banks make their month-end update to various short-term savings accounts that we hold, these balances are queried, only to find that, almost without exception, interest credited is less than it was in prior months and far less than it was eight or ten months ago.

Economic Arguments Against the Re-nomination of Bernanke as Fed Chairman / Economics / Central Banks

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI Come Neither to Praise Nor to Bury Bernanke - No one is indispensable. There are plenty of well-qualified candidates to replace Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. So, the Republic will survive whether or not Ben Bernanke is re-nominated as Fed chairman. But let us be objective in assessing the job he has done as chairman. In my opinion, Anna Schwartz was not objective in her July 26 NYT op-ed piece arguing for the dumping of Bernanke.

Global Depression Triggering the Evolution and Revolution of the Central Banking System / Economics / Central Banks

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndrew G Marshall writes: Humanity is on the verge of entering into the most tumultuous period in our history. The prospects of a global depression, the likes of which have never been seen before; a truly global war, on a scale never before imagined; and societal collapse, for which nations of the world are building totalitarian police states to control populations; are increasing by the day. The major global trend forecasters are sounding the alarms on economic depression, war, a return to fascism and a total reorganization of society.
