Geithner's Toxic Plans for Toxic Assets / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExit Paulson, enter Geithner with the latest "no banker left behind plan" - aka whatever Wall Street wants, Wall Street gets. Yet, the reception was underwhelming. The Dow plummeted 382 points while investors took shelter in bonds and gold. AP reported that "the new bank rescue plan landed with a thud on Wall Street" as investors worried that no end to the crisis is in sight. Editorial and op-ed commentaries were near unanimously negative and some especially critical.

Geithner's Plan.. Mark-to-Market, Who Gets Screwed? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGrowing up I had a girlfriend whose family had once owned a string of retail outlets in Bavaria (that's in " Germany " ( Europe )). One day her dad told me his story. A few years before the war a local Party Official came round to the house and proposed to his dad that in return for selling him all those stores for 100 Reichsmarks he would help the family get out; the alternative was a bunch of very cheap train tickets, cattle-truck class.

Shopping for Toxic Assets at the "Zombie Bank". Final Chapter of the Credit Crunch? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTimothy Geithner's new plan is to raise $2.5 trillion or so from the private sector to co-invest with him buying Toxic Assets. That sounds risky; but perhaps the flight to safety is over-priced these days? If so then "safety" is "risky".

But there are a few things I don't understand. Not least that the last time I looked, the main problem with buying those assets was finding anyone who wanted to sell some.

The City: Gold Capital of the World- Goldsmiths Part XXXI / Politics / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Robert_Bradshaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the early days of ancient Greece, governmental units called city-states developed. As these entities were feudalistic, the local fat cats controlled them. Perhaps from this organizational concept, other city-states developed in other parts of the world and often with surrounding walls. Over the centuries, these city-states proved hard to defend. So they largely vanished from the world scene; though some survived.

Understanding Money and War- Part I / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Robert_Bradshaw

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn medieval times, the goldsmith business developed in much of Europe (with involvement of people whom had been known earlier as money changers). By the Middle Ages, goldsmithing was an established reality. As gold was physical, heavy and bulky to store, but yet of great value, many people found that they lacked the means to store and safeguard it. Goldsmiths provided this service. When gold was stored with the goldsmith, he would write a receipt for it which was given to the gold owner. Since the gold owner could get his gold upon surrender of the receipt, the receipt was as good as gold.

Obama's Opening Salvo Fails to Inspire Confidence in Financial Markets / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is nearly universal agreement that the opening salvo of the Obama Administration's campaign to restore health to the financial system, delivered this week by new Treasury Secretary Geithner, fell with a loud and ugly thud. The most common criticism is that the announcement was short on detail. What is abundantly clear, however, is that the new Administration intends to push spending back up to pre-crash levels and to fill the entire credit void that has disappeared into the black hole of the American financial system. Whether or not the prior levels of spending and lending were justified by market conditions then, or now, appears to be largely unexamined.

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday was Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's coming out party. He was supposed to outline Obama's Financial Stability Plan to the Senate Banking Committee. Wall Street was looking for clarity, but it didn't get it. Instead, they got 25 minutes of political posturing and blather. The markets went into freefall. By the end of the day, the Dow was down 382 points. It was a complete fiasco.

Financial Markets Disappointment at Geithner’s Bank Bailout Plan / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writres: This was supposed to be a great week for Washington and Wall Street. The administration had leaked in advance that it was going to put a full-court press on for its stimulus and bailout programs. That led to intense anticipatory buying by the stock market bulls.

Monday night's primetime news conference with President Barack Obama only heightened anticipation ahead of the main events on Tuesday: A big speech from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and testimony before Congress by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Will the Economic Stimulus and TARP Banking System Rescue Work? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far, the government has spent $350 billion of the TARP funds to shore up a number of financial institution's equity position. They also loaned money to GM and Chrysler. All this money to help stave off a worse condition. Now the U.S. Congress is about to pass legislation to help stimulate the economy amounting to more than $800 billion. The U.S. is encountering one of the worse recessions ever and the employment picture is getting worse by the week. Moreover, the Federal Reserve has lowered rates to zero to 0.25% range and they are buying securities of many types expanding their balance sheet dramatically.
