Russian Bear Emerging From Post-Soviet Hibernation / Politics / New Cold War

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the Russian Bear has indeed emerged from its post-Soviet hibernation to regain global prominence, that means big things for your portfolio. From the punishingly obvious war with Georgia last summer, to the more subtle - but equally powerful - shut off of natural gas to Ukraine and Europe, Russia is making it abundantly clear that they want to be global players again. To get a read on how this is all going to play out, I turn to my friend George Friedman, the founder of global intelligence firm Stratfor.

Moscow Reacts to US Military Buildup in Afghanistan / Politics / New Cold War

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoscow has correctly assessed that the announced Obama troop buildup in Afghanistan has no relevance to the stated aim of combatting the ‘Taliban', but rather with a new attempt by the Pentagon strategists to encircle both Russia and China on Eurasia in order to retain US global military dominance. It is not waiting for a new policy from Washington. Rather Russia is acting to secure its perimeter in Central Asia through a series of calculated geopolitical moves reminiscent of the famous Great Game of more than a Century ago. The stakes in this geopolitical power game could not be higher—the issue of world war or peace in the coming decade.

America and the Creation of an Economic Frankenstein / Politics / US Economy

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim McTague has been writing articles for Barron's for a very long time. He's a better journalist than I and likely earns more money. He writes a column called D.C. Current for the august investment weekly and boasts the title Washington Editor. For my part… well, it's not nice to boast. The only thing the two of us may have in common is a Northern Irish distaste for all things orange and a love of the Pogues. The fact that our grandfathers once put the boots to a black and tan before his went and ratted out mine, I'll leave to another time.

Obama Plans Financial Triage for Bad Bank Troubled Assets / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Obama administration, led by Geithner, is proposing a triage of bad ideas for troubled assets. The Washington Post has the story in Bank Rescue Would Entail Triage for Troubled Assets . The Obama administration's emerging rescue plan for the banking system would amount to financial triage, with the Treasury Department playing the delicate role of deciding which of the trillions of dollars in troubled assets plaguing the economy to buy, guarantee or leave in the hands of banks, sources said.

How to Create 4 Million Jobs in 90 Days / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLost Jobs - At least 23 million Americans are either unemployed (they do not have any job) or under-employed (they are being paid for less than 35 hours per week).  If unemployment increases to 10% of the workforce by the end of 2010, then 15,434,900 people will be unemployed. In this 2 year period, America will have lost more than 4.4 million additional jobs. America's Work Shortage Index (WSI) will increase from a total of 23,487,000 unemployed or under-employed persons at the end of 2008, to a Work Shortage Index of more than 21.9% by the end of 2010. Over 33.5 million Americans would be forced to sharply curtail their spending. Over 27% of all American households would be in financial trouble. (Reference 1)

By: Walter_Brasch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery House Republican and 11 Democrats voted against President Barack Obama's $819 billion stimulus package. It still passed by a vote of 244 to 188. There are enough votes in the Senate to pass the bill, but the obstructionist Republican minority, still nursing the wounds inflicted by the public in the November election, can block it by endless political manoeuvring and a filibuster.

"Bad Bank"- How to Mitigate the Losses / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Under the "Bad Bank" scenario, the taxpayers will own these Troubled Assets which are comprised of "Toxic" mortgages.

In effect, the US government (taxpayers) will be bearing the loss on these “toxic” mortgages. The growing concern is that these losses will continue to materialize as defaults increase with the projected 8 million foreclosures expected over the next four years. It seems that the key to this crisis IS THE BORROWER!

Global Bankruptcy as World Leaders Succumb to Monetary Dementia / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Sharon_Kayser

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article'If all the bank loans were paid up, no one would have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of currency or coin in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks for our money. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp upon the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible - but there it is. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and the defects remedied very soon.' - Robert H. Hemphill, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

Banking Sector Groundhog Day Hits U.S. Treasury Bonds / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Have you ever seen the fantastic Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day?”
Murray plays Pittsburgh weatherman Phil Connors who's forced to cover the annual February unveiling of Punxsutawney Phil.

He clearly isn't thrilled. And his bad attitude shines through in several hilarious episodes. Fate punishes Murray as a result, by forcing him to re-live Groundhog Day over and over again until he improves his attitude and can win the love of his co-worker, Rita.

Market-Based "Bad" Bank Solution / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert D. (Bob) Laurent was the smartest person I have ever encountered. I had the privilege of learning from and working with him at the Chicago Fed. Bob had a knack for coming up with market-based solutions for all kinds of political-economic challenges. One example that comes to mind is at what value to assess residential real estate for tax purposes. Bob's recommendation was to let the owner of the real estate place the value on his property with the proviso that the taxing authority could purchase the property at the owner-decided value. This would deter owners from placing too low a value on their properties. Because rational property owners would have no desire to pay excessive taxes, they would not place too high a value on their properties.

Why The Aggregator Bank Will Fail / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe beauty of capitalism is that the system lets the weak perish and the strong thrive.   This is the main reason why the system has worked so well since its inception.  Wall Street is a cutthroat place - one of the few places in the civilized world where human beings allow pure unadulterated Darwinism to work. But how can a capitalist system function properly if we are propping up insolvent banks and rewarding those who made the wrong decisions?  Many people like to associate nationalization with socialism, but I see it differently.  Nationalizing banks is just controlled Darwinism.  It's a way of exterminating the dead banks in the least harmful way.

Branch of the Bavarian Illuminati, “ Bones” in the Money Pit / Politics / New World Order

By: Robert_Singer

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“ Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.”—JFK.

Our consumer society didn't just happen, it was planned. Not in 1910, or 1954, but in the year 1832, the year William Huntington Russell and fellow classmate Alphonso Taft at Yale University founded the Skull and Bones society, a branch of the Bavarian Illuminati. According to most of the available biographical data on its early members, the money required to sustain the secret order's campus affairs and its broader role in placing its members into key positions of influence upon their graduation from Yale was derived from the opium trade in the Far East.

Economic Stimulus for Who? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This week the House is expected to pass an $825 billion economic stimulus package. In reality, this bill is just an escalation of a government-created economic mess. As before, a sense of urgency and impending doom is being used to extract mountains of money from Congress with minimal debate. So much for change.

Obama's Strategic Divergence: The Wars Against the Taliban and Al Qaeda / Politics / Al-Qeeda

By: STRATFOR

Washington's attention is now zeroing in on Afghanistan. There is talk of doubling U.S. forces there, and preparations are being made for another supply line into Afghanistan — this one running through the former Soviet Union — as an alternative or a supplement to the current Pakistani route. To free up more resources for Afghanistan , the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq probably will be accelerated. And there is discussion about whether the Karzai government serves the purposes of the war in Afghanistan. In short, U.S. President Barack Obama's campaign promise to focus on Afghanistan seems to be taking shape.
