Larry Summers - History Will Overwhelmingly Approve QE / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers told Bloomberg Television's Stephanie Ruhle at the Robin Hood Investors Conference today that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program was the right call for the economy. Summers said, "On the question of whether the Fed stepping up and providing liquidity when no one else would was the right thing to do, I think historians are going to judge that about 98 to 2."

Summers also said that the economy lately hasn't shown an ability to grow without bubbles, saying, "It has been a long time since we have had rapid, healthy growth in the country...That is not an argument for bubbles. That is an argument for changing the framework."

The Tragic Truth Behind JPMorgan’s $13 Billion “Fine” / Politics / Banksters

Kdowdle writes: Let’s address two tragedies today.

The first is how Jamie Dimon & Co. and all the guilty big banks get away with murder.

The second is something I want to share with you because 50 years ago tomorrow, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated. It isn’t a conspiracy theory about who did it, but a likely theory about what happened and the conspiracy to cover that up.

Did An Obscure IMF Document Start Global Bail-In Revolution? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

When revolutions start, it's not uncommon for almost nobody to notice. It may take years or even decades before historians can look back, point a finger and say "that's where it really began."

An obscure International Monetary Fund "Staff Discussion Note" may have already started a "Bail-In" financial revolution that could transform the global investment world.

No Alternative World And The Post-Crash Revolt / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

JP MORGAN AND THE STATISTS
The “monster fine” to be paid by JP Morgan for what Eric Holder, the US Attorney General said himself, in an interview with NBC News, was the bank's direct role in the biggest world financial crisis since the Great Depression had little or no impact on investor sentiment. News of the fine produced a small uptick in JP Morgan shares as investors shrugged off the news of the bank's headline $13 billion settlement with the raft of lawsuits by the Federal Justice Department, State justice departments, and other federal agencies. Barry Grey http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article43212.html cited a report from Reuters explaining the penalty is tax deductible. The news agency quoted Gregg Polsky, a law professor at the University of North Carolina, as saying what the bank will actually pay as fines would effectively be reduced by $4 billion.

Longstanding Pentagon operations reflect a black hole of unaccountability. Reuters published a two-part report. In July, it discussed the Defense Department’s “payroll quagmire.”

It’s bureaucracy is stifling. It’s “unyielding,” said Reuters. Active duty and retired military personnel are routinely cheated. Pay errors are widespread.

A Limited Central Bank For Improving Monetary Policy Effectiveness / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: John_Mauldin

This week’s Outside the Box is unusual, even for a letter that is noted for its unusual offerings. It is a speech from last week by Charles I. Plosser, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia at (surprisingly to me) the Cato Institute’s 31st Annual Monetary Conference, Washington, DC.

I suppose that if Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher had delivered this speech I would not be terribly surprised. I suspect there are some other Federal Reserve officials here and there whoare in sympathy with this view Plosser presents here, but for quite some time no serious Fed official has outlined the need for a limited Federal Reserve in the way Plosser does today. He essentially proposes four limits on the US Federal Reserve:

Of course, anyone who knows me will already know the answer to that. I often include this in tweets: #BanQE

It is proven beyond doubt (except for the liars – the politicians, the bankers, the central bankers, the media, the multi nationals – who pretend it has worked) that it has enriched the rich and the financial elite and it has impoverished the bulk of folk.

New American Retirement Nightmare, No More Money to Retire / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Mike_Shedlock

Except for public union workers with pensions that ultimately will not be met, retirement age for most keeps inching up.

People need to work longer or go back to work after a few years of retirement because they have insufficient savings. This creates competition between those over 60 and those under 20 for low-paying jobs.

Janet Yellen “Pink Dream” and a Coming Economic Nightmare / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Joseph_T_Salerno

On Monday, former Fed official Andrew Huszar publicly apologized to the American public for his seminal role in executing the Quantitative Easing (QE) program, a program he characterizes as “the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time,” and “the largest financial-markets intervention by any government in world history.” While this is a momentous admission from an insider (Mr. Huszar is also a former Wall Street banker), perhaps Mr. Huszar’s most revealing statement concerned the results of QE’s “relentlessly pumping money into the financial markets during the past five years.” He referred to the spectacular rally in financial markets and expressed agreement with the growing belief among expert observers that market conditions had become “bubble-like.”

America's New Police State Iron Curtain, Shutting Citzens In and Out / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Wendy McElroy writes: An iron curtain is slowly descending around the borders of America. When it falls, some people will be shut in; others will be shut out. It will be up to bureaucrats and agents with guns to decide which one of those people you are.

Changes in border policy are in the wind. On June 27th, 2013, the 1,300-page Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act passed the Senate and proceeded to the House of Representatives. Debate on the Act has focused on the path of citizenship being extended to the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in America. This is controversial because Republicans fear that the new Americans, and especially Hispanics, will vote Democrat in upcoming elections. Happily, the bill has stalled in the House.

U.S. Debt Russian Roulette? / Politics / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

One of the biggest shames in the world is when someone else has to take care of your business when you are perfectly capable of doing so yourself. It used to be the ultimate form of embarrassment. However, we in the United States have turned shame into an art form over the past hundred years or so, squandering everything from our riches and blessing to the sacred honor Thomas Jefferson wrote about all those years ago in a document that is barely covered in most school curriculums today.

Darwinism Is Nonsensical as well as very Politically Correct / Politics / Evolution

By: LewRockwell

Fred Reed writes: The intent of this essay is not to debate with the ardent of evolutionism, which is the Political Correctness of science. To do so would be pointless. The greatest intellectual divide is not between those who believe one thing and those who believe another, but between those who have an emotional need to believe something fervently and those who can say, “I don´t know.” The former group comprises those tedious Darwinists and Creationists who robotically hurl imprecations at each other like fans of rival football teams. Each blockheadedly refuses to concede the slightest possibility that its doctrine might be other than infallible. To my mind they constitute the best evidence that we did not descend from monkeys, but have not yet ascended to them. Stupidity beyond a certain point is intractable.

Since the fairy tale about weapons of mass destruction that can be launched against Western targets “within forty five minutes” is well past it’s sell by date, the trans-Atlantic hasbara industry has dreamed up a new Grim Reaper for Syria, their latest quarry: chemical weapons.

Ron Paul - Federal Reserve Bank Steals From The Poor and Gives to The Rich / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last Thursday the Senate Banking Committee held hearings on Janet Yellen's nomination as Federal Reserve Board Chairman. As expected, Ms. Yellen indicated that she would continue the Fed's "quantitative easing" (QE) polices, despite QE's failure to improve the economy. Coincidentally, two days before the Yellen hearings, Andrew Huszar, an ex-Fed official, publicly apologized to the American people for his role in QE. Mr. Huszar called QE "the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time."

The Yellen Dilemma - Rebel Now Bagholder / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Janet Yellen appeared before the Senate Banking Committee on the approval process, more a production than a process. The veteran economist and banker was given respectful treatment. The good Senators do not wish to be subjected to smear campaigns (see Menendez of New Jersey) or to have their banker donations cut off, better described as relentless bribery toward policy control. After all, Wall Street firms wrote the Financial Regulatory Bill. She will be confirmed for the US Federal Reserve Chair post with some minor heckling by the Senators. Expect Corker (Tennessee), Vitter (Louisiana), and Rand Paul (Kentucky) to pitch in some salty commentary. Yellen fits the job description as an insider, with ample experience inside the Federal Reserve Board and the Council of Economic Advisors, with the correct tribal pedigree. She has carefully scripted her own commentary, with some tacit comprehension of the impossible task of fostering a strong enough economy to sustain itself toward spinning off adequate job growth. Yellen will continue the Zero Interest Rate Policy Forever and a day, since raising rates would kill the economic structure and financial lattice work.

Why Banking, Corporate America And The Government Need Each Other / Politics / Banksters

By: GoldSilverWorlds

It should not come as a surprise that banking, industry and government are closely connected. The recent draconian decisions of the US Fed or the US foreign policy towards the Middle East are obvious examples. In order to understand who is behind most of those decisions and who the beneficiaries are, one should go back in history to the end of the 19th century.

Murray N. Rothbard revealed in his book “Wall Street, Banks and American Foreign Policy” in great detail that the financial and political stakeholders are one and the same. Rothbard, being an author and great thinker, highlights the role of political capitalism and crony capitalism in the US by tracing the historical references and connections in US financial and political decision making. This was also the context in which the US Fed was created.

The Economics of ObamaCare / Politics / US Politics

By: Robert_Murphy

Near the end of Human ActionLudwig von Mises declared that it was the “primary civic duty” to learn the teachings of economics. The public’s growing furor over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — popularly known as “ObamaCare” — beautifully illustrates Mises’s point. No one has any business being shocked — shocked! — thatmillions of Americans will losetheir current health insurance (including the present, irritated, writer), because such an outcome was obvious all along. Furthermore, the hilarious snags with healthcare.gov are merely a sideshow; the true problems with ObamaCare run much deeper than a malfunctioning website.

Egypt Marches to a Saudi Drummer / Politics / Egypt

By: OilPrice_Com

Felix Imonti writes: General El-Sisi may have found the solution to Egypt's economic woes. It is called war.

During the weeks up to the coup, General El-Sisi had much to consider. With his access to the presidential palace and the trust of the Muslim Brotherhood, the general would have known the well-kept secret that Egypt was facing in a few short months a currency collapse and a famine that would very likely throw the country into a bloody revolution that his soldiers would be forced to quell.
