U.S. Housing Bubble, Alan Greenspan Still Hasn't Got a Clue / Politics / Central Banks

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the same day that his successor signaled dramatic policy changes that would see the Federal Reserve "take away the punchbowl" before inflating yet another asset bubble, radically altering the way financial market regulators operate in the process, former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan was readying yet another in a long series of op-ed pieces aimed at defending his legacy.

He didn't cause the housing bubble, or so he says.

Time To Stop Squandering Taxpayer's Money / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Hussman is always a good read. This week, in Buckle Up , Hussman is railing about the policies in Washington. Let's tune in.

The misguided policy response from Washington has focused almost exclusively on squandering public money and burdening our children with indebtedness in order to defend the bondholders of mismanaged financial institutions (blame Paulson and Geithner – I've got a lot of respect for our President, but he's been sold a load of garbage by banking insiders).

Watch CNBC and Make Money, Who is Really Making Money? Part1 / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaybe there's a good reason why CNBC has a show called Fast Money. If you follow the advice of these guys, your money is likely to evaporate very fast. Likewise, I'm beginning to see why Cramer's show is called Mad Money. You're likely to get mad if you follow his advice. Or maybe you have to be a mad man to watch it. Cramer, didn't you tell investors to stay in Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers just days before the collapse?

The Bottomless Bailout / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRalph Nader writes: Does anybody in the federal government know or could know “who, what, where and when” of the massive, complex, vertical, horizontal, global collapse of Wall Street and its planetary tentacles in over 100 countries abroad? Step forward if you exist! Uncle Sam needs you!
Is the multi-million dollar bailout of this financial mess and house of cards, this phantom wealth mummy hitting air beyond the federal governments' salvage capability?

Can the U.S. Tax Authorities Break Swiss Bank Secrecy? / Politics / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt would seem so clear that the U.SA. Tax Authority attack on UBS is going to break the Swiss secret banking system. Will they succeed? After whacking them with a $780 million fine they are now coming in for another attack demanding the exposure of U.S. Swiss account holders in the bank. They had agreed to disclose the names of 300 U.S. based clients with accounts with U.B.S. in the States. They have and will not agree to disclose the names of U.S. citizens who hold accounts in Switzerland . But the entire body of U.S. citizens holding Swiss bank accounts are worried about this prospect. On top of that, all other foreign Swiss bank account holders are worried too.

Obama Success or Failure, Which is Better for the U.S. Economy? / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk show host and conservative icon Rush Limbaugh recently ignited a firestorm of criticism for expressing his desire that Barack Obama should fail. Democrats, and even some Republicans, suggested that he had put aside his patriotism to wish for an economic collapse that would result in political advantage for conservatives. However, if you believe as I, and apparently Rush, that Obama's plans will prevent recovery, then wishing that they fail to become actual policy is the right thing to do. The problem is that since Mr. Limbaugh has a history of partisanship, and since he did not forcefully criticize the Bush Administration for similar (if slightly more modest) plans, many cannot see past the messenger to recognize the truth in the message.

Why TALF is Bad for America / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) announcements bring to mind Einstein's definition of insanity – “doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results”. It is well documented that securitization of loans, use of leverage, and government intervention in the free markets helped inflate assets bubbles, fostered a culture of debt, and distorted the efficient allocation of limited resources in our economy. If you want a good real world example, Fannie Mae bonds guaranteed by the government, backed by a pool of subprime mortgages, and bought using borrowed money (leverage) touches most of the bases.

Financial Crisis Big Picture: What Can We Do? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Rudy_Avizius

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Part 1 of this series, we examined how our “leaders” and “experts” ignored the warning signs of an impending economic storm and ended up with huge trade deficits, growing budget deficits, rising consumer debt, the collapse and loss of trust for our financial sector, the erosion of our middle class, significantly increased corporate debt levels, the United States as the world's largest debtor nation, a planet on the verge of potentially catastrophic climate change, and out of control population growth. We essentially had a system that was not sustainable.
