Devalue US Debt Through Inflation? Three Lessons from History / Economics / US Debt

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Might the scam work? Can the United States really settle its debt with devalued dollars, free of all historical fall-out...?"

"WE CAN PAY ANYBODY by running a printing press," said Thomas Gale Moore, one of Ronald Reagan's economic advisors, when the United States became a net debtor to its foreign investors in 1986.

Credit Card Debt Ticking Time Bomb / Economics / US Debt

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor those holding out hope that the American economy can miraculously avoid a long and deep recession consumer credit is often viewed as the wonder drug that can cure all manner of economic ills. As such, this week's report showing $15 billion growth in consumer credit was widely heralded as proof of America's economic strength and resilience.  However, we are now suffering the after effects of too much debt, and our salvation cannot be found in more of the same.

GOTTERDÄMMERUNG- The Twilight of Irredeemable Debt / Economics / US Debt

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWagner's opera Gotterdämmerung is about the twighlight of pagan gods. The most powerful of the latter-day pagan gods that has been guiding the destinies of humanity for the past two-score of years is Irredeemable Debt. Before August 14, 1971 , debts were obligations, and the word “bond” was to mean literally what it said: the opposite of freedom. The privilege of issuing debt had a countervailing responsibility: that of repayment.

America Saves Week Feb 24th to March 2nd - Build Wealth Not Debt! / Economics / US Debt

By: Wall_Street_Weather

While paging through the local paper yesterday, I spotted a bank ad touting a 48 month Certificate of Deposit for 3.5% APY. The barely legible print at the bottom of the ad said that the CD requires a $10,000 minimum of new money to the bank. Wow, I bet people will be standing in line for the bank to open this morning.

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: The debt disease we've been warning you about, long subdued and dormant, is returning with a vengeance.

You can see its symptoms everywhere — in the massive losses on Wall Street ... in consumer credit turning sour ... in collapsing bond insurers ... in sinking corporate earnings ... in the recession hitting hard.

Global Impact of the US Debt Implosion / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have written a series articles dating back to March 2007 tracking the US debt implosion, which are available here . The story started out in early 2007 with the blowout of Novastar and New Century, the multi-billion non-bank intermediary mortgage brokers. In summer of 2007 we witnessed the collapse of American Home Mortgage, America's largest subprime mortgage issuing bank. Then we saw a series of subprime write-offs amounting to hundreds of $ billions by banks, funds, and institutions around the world. Then the trouble moved up in the chain of the mortgage complex, with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announcing surprising losses.

Fundamentals of Growing Public Debt a Big Negative for US Equities / Economics / US Debt

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSummary
For those who are only interested in the bottom line, it doesn't matter what the charts are saying. Neither US equities nor US Treasuries represent sensible investments from a fundamental perspective. Investments should be in assets which offer protection against the demise of the US Dollar.

Beating the Credit Cycle - The Battle Between Debt & Recession / Economics / US Debt

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...The Fed & the White House will do whatever it takes. But will that be enough to defeat recession for ever and ever...?"

SO THERE IS TO BE no let up or truce in the war between debt and recession. The cannon-fodder of consumer credit – the battle-weary consumers themselves – must push ahead with the Christmas offensive. The United States , standing shoulder to shoulder with its partners in Britain , will stay in the trenches until the job is completed.

The Invisible Housing Mortgage Hand: Analysis of a Society That Forces You Into Debt / Housing-Market / US Debt

By: Dr_Housing_Bubble

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Ministry of Truth, otherwise known at the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, tells us that inflation is low to moderate. In fact, inflation is so low all you need to do is purchase 10-year Treasury notes and you'll be fine. But we do have inflation and this is apparent in the credit markets. We live in a society were folks are forced to go into debt. Instead of addressing our negative savings rate, corporate America decides to create credit products that will put you even further in debt . They use the machines of marketing to subtly make you feel that having 10 credit cards, student loan debt, and steroid induced mortgages is okay.

Subprime Mortgage Meltdown - Beware of Monopoly Money to Follow! / Housing-Market / US Debt

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: The subprime mortgage meltdown and real estate collapse in this country is a mess. No doubt about it. And there are lots of lax mortgage brokers and bankers to blame.

In the months ahead you're going to see their shenanigans exposed … class action lawsuits filed by the dozens … and even some big chiefs getting hit with criminal charges and eventually jail time.

High Risk Credit / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As markets went on a rollercoaster ride last week, our economy is coming close to a day of reckoning for loose credit policies being followed by the Federal Reserve Bank. Simply, foreign banks we have been relying on to buy our debt are waking up to the reality of much higher default rates than predicted, and many mortgage backed securities have been reduced to "junk" ratings. Wall Street fears the possibility of tightening credit and the tightening of America's belts. Why, they say, "if Americans spend only what they can afford, think of the ripple effects throughout the economy!" This is the cry, as the call comes for the fed to cut rates and bail out companies in trouble.

Who Do We Owe and How Much? / Economics / US Debt

By: Mike_Hewitt

This essay takes an in-depth look at the magnitude and consequences of the large debt levels within the United States. Topics discussed include: composition of foreign and domestic holders of U.S. debt, consequences of the government borrowing from the Federal Reserve, and a look at the current U.S. housing market.

The National Debt

The national debt (also known as public debt) is money owed by the federal government. As the government represents the people, government debt can be seen as an indirect debt of the taxpayers. The U.S. government incurs debt by issuing treasuries (bills, notes and bonds).

The Perils of Monetizing US Debt / Economics / US Debt

By: Jes_Black

In our weekly reports, we often take the classical view on money. While we admit that monetarism may fail as an easy policy approach, from a fundamental standpoint, the supply of money will ultimately decide the long term rate of interest.

The classical view holds that interest rates will adjust to the equilibrium level between savings and investment. The prevailing Keynesian view is that interest rates will adjust to the supply and demand for money.

State of the Union - THE UNITED STATES IS INSOLVENT / Economics / US Debt

By: Dr_Martenson

Prepare to be shocked.

The US is insolvent. There is simply no way for our national bills to be paid under current levels of taxation and promised benefits. Our federal deficits alone now total more than 400% of GDP.

That is the conclusion of a recent Treasury/OMB report entitled Financial Report of the United States Government that was quietly slipped out on a Friday (12/15/06), deep in the holiday season, with little fanfare. Sometimes I wonder why the Treasury Department doesn't just pay somebody to come in at 4:30 am Christmas morning to release the report. Additionally, I've yet to read a single account of this report in any of the major news media outlets but that is another matter.

US Debt Mountain - How can it be serviced ? / Economics / US Debt

By: Sarah_Jones

The US in the financial year ending 2006, paid over $400 billion in interest on debt ! Following the 14 consecutive Fed rate what will happen when the debt needs to be reissued at these higher interest rates ? I.e. average debt maturity is less than 60 months with total US debt stands at $8 trillions. Thus interest payments are likely rise substantially in the coming years whilst at the same time the US is running an record annual budget deficit of over $500 billion.

So what can the Federal Reserve do to extricate the US from this developing crisis ?
