Fallacies of Pearlstein's WaPo op-ed on Glass-Steagall / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: ECB_Watch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile not an expert on banking legislation, I've come across sufficiently visible fallacies in rejecting the notion that the repeal of Glass-Steagall was a factor of crisis, I felt confident enough to write a post describing them (jump to 'Also see'). The Washington Post now publishes an article by Steven Pearlstein repeating the same fallacies: 'Let's shatter the myth on Glass Steagall' (WP). Both Sorkin and Pearlstein are recipient of prestigious awards (Gerald Loeb and Pulitzer).

A Better Way To Finance Public Projects / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a local newspaper I recently read an article regarding how a school district was looking to “refinance” their outstanding bonds in an effort to reduce the interest burden on their debt. In the same issue I read how another school district expends nearly $2,000,000 yearly just to pay the interest burden on their debt.

Before I offer my comments on Pento's thoughts, let me say upfront that Eric King is a world-class interviewer. King lets his interviewees have their say, no matter what it is.

It is up to listeners to decide whether the message makes any sense or not. King merely wants the position to be well stated.

Swiss Banking: Asymmetric Threats Mount? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2012

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTotal client assets managed by Swiss banks stood at 5.3 trillion Swiss francs or 5,300 billion Swiss francs at the end of last year according to the latest data compiled by the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA), the apex body of banks in Switzerland.  This includes 2,700 billion Swiss francs (51 per cent) of foreign client assets and the remainder 2,600 billion Swiss francs (49 per cent) of domestic client assets.  The drop to 51 per cent of total foreign assets-under-management is the lowest recorded in four years.  Titled “Banking in transition - Future prospects for banks in Switzerland”, the latest SBA study notes that the share of foreign client assets in the Swiss wealth management industry has fallen for four successive years:  from 56% at the end of 2008 to 55% in 2009 to 52% in 2010 and 51% in 2011.  The quantum of overseas assets under management at the end of 2008 stood at 3 trillion Swiss francs and this includes the value of securities held in client portfolios, fiduciary deposits, amounts due to clients in savings and investment accounts, and as also from time deposits.

Ending of Extend and Pretend Means Capital Flight, Capital Controls and Capital Fear / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Nicole_Foss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ending of extend-and-pretend is ushering in a new era of fear and uncertainty which is rapidly evolving into the next phase of the on-going credit crunch.

It is becoming clearer to many that the problems run much deeper than they had perceived, and more people all the time are realizing the systemic nature of the risks we are facing. Fear leads to knee-jerk reactions. In financial markets, it leads to volatility and self-fulfilling prophecies to the downside. It leads to capital flight, and then to capital controls.

Are Capital Controls Coming to America? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre capital controls coming to the United States? They may be for Switzerland, The Swiss National Bank has announced that it is considering the imposition of controls. But these will be controls on euro accounts being shifted into Swiss francs.

Why would a central bank impose controls on money flowing in? Because this will raise the market price of francs in relation to euros. The central bank is dominated by mercantilist thinking. A rising currency is seen as a liability. Why? Because exporters are hit by the falling value of the foreign currency. Foreigners must pay more to buy francs to buy Swiss goods.

Get Ready for Another 2008-Style Financial Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Dr_Martenson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, my hat is off to the global central planners for averting the next stage of the unfolding financial crisis for as long as they have. I guess there’s some solace in having had a nice break between the events of 2008/09 and today, which afforded us all the opportunity to attend to our various preparations and enjoy our lives.

Alas, all good things come to an end, and a crisis rooted in ‘too much debt’ with a nice undercurrent of ‘persistently high and rising energy costs’ was never going to be solved by providing cheap liquidity to the largest and most reckless financial institutions. And it has not.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the financial crisis in 2008, "Too-Big-To-Fail" banks had to go. In 2006, the four largest banks - J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo - held 33% of U.S. bank assets. Now, they hold 41% of U.S. bank assets and grow by the minute.

The Federal Reserve is, at least on paper, the country's leading bank regulator. Instead, it behaves like the TBTF banks' turbocharger. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke is full of talk, and nothing else:

Bankruptcy Trends in the Post Meltdown Era / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic dislocation is an inherent element in any financial system. One way to deal with balance sheet imbalances is to declare bankruptcy. The most common examples of liquidating default without payment are to petition the court to absolve debt obligations. Personal bankruptcy is tragic, but is common in a culture where immediate consumer gratification is the end all of a private excess society. Business bankruptcy is different because the underlying enterprise assumes all the risks of engaging in commerce. Even prudent expenditures and sound business activities can go sour that ultimately results in insolvency.
