Financial Meltdown 2011 Fast Approaching / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the best efforts by the American mainstream financial media, the eager PR division of the United States Dollar Ponzi Scheme, to paint the rosiest of rosy pictures for blindly optimistic readers, the stubborn image of a debt-swollen jobless behemoth economy slowly toppling persists. No matter how much U.S. departmental data is primped, polished, and primed, no amount of lipstick is going to transform this fat pig into a princess.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon Issues Warning for Municipal Bond Investors / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said he expected more municipal bankruptcies. In doing so, aligned himself with other critics of the muni-bond market, including analyst Meg Whitman and Money Morning's own Martin Hutchinson.

"There have been six or seven municipal bankruptcies already," Dimon said Jan. 10 at JPMorgan's annual healthcare conference. "I think unfortunately you will see more."

The crisis will begin in the coming months if the EU does not find ways to solve sovereign debt problems. Yet, China is already rushing to help and ready to buy Spanish bonds.

European Debt Crisis Thinking the Unthinkable, The Threat of the Irish / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed Adds a Third Mandate
A Rational Voice in Dallas
Thinking the Unthinkable
The Threat of the Irish
Has China Found a Miracle Business Cycle?

Last week, in the first part of my annual forecast, I suggested that 2011 would be better than Muddle Through, with GDP growth in the US north of 2.5%. World GDP growth should be even better. This week we look at what I see as the real downside risks to that prediction. Oddly enough, the risks are not in the US but on the other side of both our oceans, in Europe and China. Plus, we will visit a few other items, assuming we have space (Bernanke's recent speech just screams for some comments).

U.S. Bond Market Trades in Choppy Narrow Range / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Levente_Mady

The bond market has settled into a relatively narrow but choppy trading range over the past 5 weeks.  The Treasury Bond auction cycle consisting of 3, 10 and 30 year tranches was well received, but the slightly disappointing 30 year auction appears to have prevented the market from breaking out of its recent narrow range.  Even the onslaught of disappointing economic news could not provide enough motivation for the market to break out to the upside.  Consequently, it looks like sideways action remains the path of least resistance.

The Symbolic U.S. Debt Ceiling / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDemocratic politics relies on deception. Without deception of the voters on a comprehensive scale, there could be no politics above the local level, where people know the deceivers personally and are therefore less easy to fool.

Basic to deception are symbols. Symbols serve politicians in much the same way as a red cape serves a matador.

Europe's Tragic Debt Crisis / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the root of the current crisis in Europe are the actions of the European Central Bank. As Philipp Bagus explains in his new book, The Tragedy of the Euro, only a realization of the true costs the euro has imposed on the continent in the past can shed light on the path to future recovery.

European member states, the European Central Bank (ECB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have pledged upward of €200 billion in bailout funds to prevent the turmoil from spreading. This is a large funding drain on an already-dangerous EU fiscal situation.

Full Spectrum Dominance, The Pathology of U.S. and Global Monetary Policy / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how the Federal Reserve – through its proxy money centre banks – has taken complete control of the interest rate complex enabling them to arbitrarily price capital at or near zero.  This has only been possible with accommodation of the ruling elite who mutually benefit from these policies.

Federal Debt of the United States - Q and A (Part II) / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article[Part I, question 1-3] published on Jan 11, 2011.

4.  Will Congress entertain not raising the statutory debt limit?

Congress will increase the statutory debt limit prior to the deadline.  There is not even an inkling of doubt about this eventuality.  But, unfavorable posturing by politicians, prior to taking the appropriate action, is nearly certain and tentative market concern will prevail.  The terms of the deal the Republicans will strike to raise the debt limit is the source of uncertainty not whether they will raise the borrowing limit.  The Treasury Department estimates that the national debt will hit the statutory limit between March 31 and May 16.  In the meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Geithner has indicated that the Treasury could take "exceptional actions" to delay the deadline by suspending the sale of state and local government securities, which would buy time for a few weeks.

Geithner Says the US Government Is Bankrupt / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. government is insolvent. Who says so? Timothy F. Geithner, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury.

Geithner sent a letter to Congress on Jan. 6, 2011 asking for the debt limit to be raised. If it is not raised, he warned, the U.S. will default on its debt. In his words:

Never in our history has Congress failed to increase the debt limit when necessary. Failure to raise the limit would precipitate a default by the United States."

Brazil Accuses US, China of Currency Manipulation, Looming Trade War / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are a few of the many stories I am following: The risk of trade wars escalates as Brazil accuses the United States and China of currency manipulation. In turn, the IMF is upset at Brazil for imposing capital controls. In Belgium, the king wants to end the "unprecedented hell" that has left Belgium without a government for 211 days smack in the midst of a budget crisis. China is set for multiple rounds of credit tightening even though China's growth is weakening. Interest rates in Portugal and Spain suggest more bailouts coming up. Ireland is pondering the Iceland Solution and that has the IMF more than a bit upset.
