The Bank of the Fed is Closed…Forever / Politics / Central Banks

By: Robert_Singer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an effort to explain our escalating financial crisis, an American Nightmare (an Environmental Dream), the pundits are focusing their angst on the 44th POTUS, who might very well go down as the single most inept president in all of American history. (How to Squander the Presidency in One Year, David Michael Green)

Barack Obama is not inept, greedy or stupid and he isn’t one of  “us”.

I Am Worried about the Government Debt My Descendants Will Inherit / Politics / US Debt

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

This is a common concern I hear from seniors and even some enlightened baby boomers. (Yes, Virginia, there actually are some enlightened baby boomers!) Is this a legitimate concern? You betcha. The chart below shows actual per-capita gross federal debt through 2009 and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) projected per-capita federal debt thereafter through 2020. In 2009, each of us was responsible for $38, 651 dollars of gross federal debt.  By 2020, CBO projects each of us will be on the hook for $62, 808 of gross federal debt.

Central Banks Are On the Defensive, Where's All the Gold? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll over the Western world, central banks are under pressure from their governments to inflate. Governments are not satisfied with short-term interest rates at historic lows, such as a federal funds rate of 0% to 0.25% in the United States. Politicians want rapid economic growth, and they are convinced that this is possible after a major recession only with more fiat money. In short, they have accurately understood the message of their college-level textbooks. This is what textbooks have been saying for over 50 years. This is the new, improved Keynesianism. Keynes focused on the need for large government deficits and increased government spending, not monetary inflation. The new Keynesianism wants large government deficits and lots of fiat money.

Why Talk of Re-Regulating Wall Street is Just Talk / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongress continues to promise tough regulation of the financial industry. Another version of a reform bill is expected to reach the Senate for debate next week.

It’s all window-dressing! More months will pass, during which investors and consumers will hear assurances that tough reforms will take place. But nothing meaningful will be forthcoming.

Bankers Get Bonuses, the USA Gets the Great Recession / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf a high-on-crack driver crashed his speeding rental car into your house and killed your spouse, you would be outraged if law enforcers took bribes and gave the driver a pass on a blood test. If the judge then merely fined the killer and ordered you to pay it, you would appeal, wondering what happened to justice. If the government then handed the crack-driver keys to a bigger rental car and presented you with the rental bill, you would certainly protest.

Agri-Foods Boom, Africa's Land and Family Farms Up for Grabs? / Politics / Agricultural Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the years many Big Ideas have been imposed on Africa from outside. The latest is that the region should sell or lease millions of hectares of land to foreign investors, who will bring resources and up-to-date technology. None of the blueprints has worked, and African farmers have become increasingly impoverished. It is time for Africans to turn to their own histories, knowledge and resources.

Dimon's Bear Stearns Sticky Bombs Are Worse Than Geithner's / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

The Financial Times recently reported more losses on the $30 billion in Bear Stearns's mortgage assets that the Fed took off of Jamie Dimon's hands, when JPMorgan Chase's CEO bought Bear in the spring of 2008. The assets languish in Maiden Lane I, a purchasing vehicle created on the watch of then President of the New York Fed and current Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner. At the outset, it looked like a bad deal for taxpayers, and it continues to look lousy.

Climate Change Non-Science and The Texas Black Swan / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe drama continues, but the recent filing by the Texas Attorney General to challenge the IPCC findings on Climate Change was no big surprise.

Particularly since George Bush’s home state relies a lot on oil and beef although, given the past record of the Bush dynasty one can’t help wondering how much of the costs of the action will be paid by the good citizens of Texas, and how much will be paid by the Saudi’s? But then that’s just one more conspiracy theory in a long line.

Wall Street’s War Against Main Street America / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFormer Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson wrote an op-ed in The New York Times, (Feb. 16)[1] outlining how to put the U.S. economy on rations. Not in those words, of course. Just the opposite: If the government hadn’t bailed out Wall Street’s bad loans, he claims, “unemployment could have exceeded the 25 percent level of the Great Depression.” Without wealth at the top, there would be nothing to trickle down.
