Why Paying Your Mortgage May Be Financially Irresponsible / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Karen_De_Coster

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRoger Lowenstein has written one of the best articles I have read on the topic: walking away from your house. The prominent author and journalist published a January 7, 2010 article in the New York Times with the headline, "Walk Away From Your Mortgage!" Lowenstein acknowledges that it may be financially careless for homeowners who are upside down on their mortgage to keep paying it in order to hang onto a fantasy of ownership and avoid the shame of default. In this article, Lowenstein’s subject is the borrower who can afford to pay the mortgage but considers opting out for reasons of financial benefit and survival. This is referred to as a strategic default.

Tim Geithner Must Go As Unemployment Festers A New Economic Strategy Team Is Needed / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen a pitcher gets tired, starts throwing walks or being hit, most attentive managers take him out of the game. When policies fail, as in the case of the security system that didn’t work to spot the alleged Christmas bomber, the President starts acting tough with bluster about the buck stopping here and orders to straighten out a failed system.

These blundering and implausible plots to bring down an airliner seem far removed from al-Qaida’s expertise in pulling off 9/11.

The Treasury responded to reports that the New York Fed asked AIG to suppress and delay facts about the bailout. Meg Reilly, a Treasury spokesperson claimed: “In the transaction at the heart of this dispute…the FRBNY [Federal Reserve Bank of New York] made a loan of $25 billion which is on track to be paid back in full with interest.” She claims the loan is currently “above water.”

Bernanke and Greenspan, Financial Crisis Not Our Fault / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt seems that the primary qualification needed by any chairman of the Federal Reserve is the ability to never admit error, no matter how damning the evidence. During his tenure on the job, Alan Greenspan set the standard for implausible deniability. But in a speech last weekend in Atlanta, current chairman Ben Bernanke did the Maestro one better.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wrote a few times in 2008 and early 2009 that as historic and mind bending the times we were living through then were, that when all the details of what was happening behind the scenes leaked out in the coming years ... that's where the truly fascinating information would be found.  How short are memories are - all the furor over the direct handout to investment (and other) banks the world over, led by our friends at Goldman Sachs (GS) via AIG swap agreements - is but a distant memory.

Moving Your Money from Wall Street to Local Community Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent proposal to vote with our feet by shifting our deposits from Wall Street to community banks is a great start. However, community banks are not suffering from a lack of deposits so much as from a lack of the capital they need to make new loans, and investment capital today is scarce. There is a way out of this dilemma, demonstrated for over 90 years by the innovative state of North Dakota -- a partnership in which community banks are backed by the deep pockets of a state-owned bank.

Did Iceland Run a Giant Ponzi Scheme to Scam British Savers? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Iceland is refusing to repay the £2.3 billion that British Tax payers put up to temporarily bailout Icelandic banks operating in the UK following the 2008 Financial Crisis.

The President of Iceland played the victim card by stating that he would refuse to sign a bill passed by the Iceland's Parliament that authorised repayment of £2.3 billion owed as a consequence of the bailout of British savers in Icesave. Instead President Grimsson stated that he would instead hold a referendum on the bill which has ZERO chance of being passed hence there will no repayment.

Are We Solving the ROOT CAUSE of our Economic Problems? / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePicture yourself in the following scenario: you are visiting your doctor complaining of abdominal pains, the doctor gives you a prescription for a strong pain killer. Certainly the pain medicine will help you feel better, but does it really solve the problem that caused the pains in the first place? Could this be the result of appendicitis or some other serious condition? You would rightly question the doctor’s judgment. The doctor is treating the SYMPTOM of the problem, not the ROOT CAUSE.

On The Road To Copenhagen and A Global Food Crisis / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Robert_Palmer


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes the following analysis sound familiar?

“A weakening U.S. dollar is putting upward pressure on oil prices. The shock produced chaos in the West. In the United States, the retail price of a gallon of gasoline rose 50%, consumption dropped by 6.1% from September to February. Underscoring the interdependence of the world societies and economies, oil-importing nations in the noncommunist industrial world saw sudden inflation and economic recession. The energy crisis led to greater interest in renewable energy and spurred research in solar power and wind power as well as increased interest in mass transit.”

Yemen, Behind Al-Qaeda Scenarios, a Geopolitical Oil Chokepoint to Eurasia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn December 25 US authorities arrested a Nigerian named Abdulmutallab aboard a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on charges of having tried to blow up the plane with smuggled explosives. Since then reports have been broadcast from CNN, the New York Times and other sources that he was “suspected” of having been trained in Yemen for his terror mission. What the world has been subjected to since is the emergence of a new target for the US ‘War on Terror,’ namely a desolate state on the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen. A closer look at the background suggests the Pentagon and US intelligence have a hidden agenda in Yemen.

Demise of The United States of America, An American Tragedy / Politics / US Politics

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe demise of a nation is often at the hands of others; and, whereas the usual suspects are its enemies, allies and friends cannot be ruled out.

The 20th century will be remembered as the century when America became a world power. World Wars I and II would decimate the then great powers of the world, e.g. England, Germany, Russia, France,  Japan, etc., leaving the US as the last nation standing—the world’s sole superpower.
