Greece Buys Time for Insolvent Bankers and Delusional Politicians / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Last week, the Greek parliament voted by a narrow margin to pass an economically crippling austerity plan of some $40 billion in return for some $159 billon of fresh liquidity injections. Although many hailed the event as a needed first step on a long road to recovery, I believe the austerity program will make a bad situation worse. It is a flawed solution that stems from a false premise: that Greece should continue to be part of the euro zone, and continue to use the euro as its currency.

Rented Papandreou Selling Off Greek Assets, Pan Hellenic Socialist Kleptocrats / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: James_Petras

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"George Papandreou is not bought, he is rented. He sells public enterprises to the multinationals.  He reduces wages, pensions and employment at the behest of the IMF.  He turns over the public treasury to the European banks. He supports NATO’s war against Libya .  He directs the Greek Coast Guard to enforce Netanyahu’s blockade of Gaza .” According to a demonstrator in Syndigma Square , Athens , July 3, 2011

A self-proclaimed “Socialist” Government in Greece is imposing by ballots and clubs the most far reaching reversals of wages, pensions, jobs, educational, health and tax programs in the history of Western Europe.

Greece Debt Crisis Today Compares to Germany 1923 / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the bankers queue up to get served their pound of flesh, which is all that’s currently on offer, it’s hard not to notice the striking similarities between the Greece of today and Germany in 1923. Then Germany owed billions thanks to a treaty that was made in a French-speaking country along with an offer that couldn’t be refused, back then Versailles, this time Maastricht.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has made another mistake - a mistake that'll cost U.S. taxpayers a lot of money.

The organization's executive board yesterday (Tuesday) selected French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde as its new leader. A U.S. pledge of support Tuesday morning secured Lagarde's approval. She already had backing from European countries and major emerging markets Brazil, Russia, and China.

Get Ready to be Financially Conscripted into Financial Repression / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA new financial policy initiative known by the label “Financial Repression” may soon become our worst nightmare.  ‘Repression’ rhymes with ‘depression’ which could be what we have to look forward to as rampant price inflation and permanently lower living standards take hold.  Get ready to be conscripted into a citizen army assembled for the greater cause of saving the nation from being swamped by a tsunami of debt.  Let me explain.

European Debt Crisis Investing, Buy U.S. Treasury Bills / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Fortune (citing IMF data), Germany’s banks are now more leveraged than Lehman Brothers at the time of its collapse (Lehman: 31 to 1). Similarly, their leverage is financed by “cheap, short-term loans that are vulnerable to a market shock.” These loans (as we explained last December) are from money market funds here in the U.S. (Investors should Buy Treasury Bills instead.)

Bankrupt Greece Blackmails Europe, Bailout or Euro Zone Dies, Global Financial System Collapse / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Greek population is in constant revolt with another 48 hour national strike underway against ever expanding announcements of economic austerity though to date little of which has actually been implemented and therefore risks at the very a least a delay of the latest tranche of Euro 12 billion in what has now become a permanent flow of funds from core Euro-zone to Greece and other peripheral eurozone countries, therefore tax payers of core Europe and to a lesser degree Britain are being taxed to pay for the unwillingness of the PIIGS to pay their bills.

United States of Denial / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe suggestion that there is anything remotely approaching a recovery in the United States, or the world economy, is pure cow pie, as evidenced by the requirement for more borrowing, more easing, and more deterioration in employment and housing. But as the title suggests, its not just America. I’m referring to the heads of state around the world. Apparently too busy jetting back and forth from Washington, New York, Vienna, Athens, Berlin, London and Paris to have anything approaching a grip on reality, we’re delivered surreality by world leaders immersed in United States of Denial. Now the banks in Europe are carving up the assets of Greece as vig for continued lending.

Credit Default Swaps: Why Washington Warnings / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Three years ago, I told you that Wall Street's newest invention - credit default swaps - would cause a major financial crash.

Now, I'll concede that credit default swaps (CDS) weren't the only cause of the financial meltdown that brought about the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings (OTC: LEHMQ) and nearly brought down American International Group Inc. (NYSE: AIG). But these financial derivatives were a major exacerbating factor - which is why I also warned that credit default swaps should be banned.

Banker Occupation of Greece / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomist Michael Hudson calls it "Replacing Economic Democracy with Financial Oligarchy" in a June 5 article by that title, saying:

After being debt entrapped, or perhaps acquiescing to entrapment, the Papandreou government needs bailout help to pay bankers that entrapped them. Doing so, however, requires "initiat(ing) a class war by raising its taxes (harming working households most), lowering its standard of living - and even private-sector pensions - and sell off public land, tourist sites, islands, ports, water and sewer facilities" - in fact, all the country's crown jewels, lock, stock and barrel, strip-mining it of everything of worth at fire sale prices.

Global Debt Crisis Illusions Versus Reality / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Tony_Pallotta

"Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces." - Sigmund Freud

Our global society needs a reset. The insolvency of Greece or the growing US fiscal imbalance are only symptoms of a much deeper problem. It is easy for market participants to sit behind their red and green charts and point blame at "the Bernank." It is easy for homeowners to forego their mortgage payment to fund the expenses they are "entitled" to. It is easy for the Mortgage Bankers Association to "strategically default," after all it's a "business decision."

Silver, Comex and The War Over Money / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce again, S&P is at it, issuing its monthly threat to the USGovt to fall into compliance or risk its AAA credit rating. On the surface, these warnings have become rather laughable in that the ratings agency feels the need to say something while, in effect, saying nothing. As time has gone by, the idea that the markets would be jittered by an actual ratings cut has become equally absurd. To hear it reported, you’d think the market consisted of a bunch of first graders who need S&P, Moody’s or Fitch to tell them the sky is blue.

Greece Death by a Thousand Cuts, What it Means for Us? / Stock-Markets / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Kirtley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe political landscape: The Greeks need even more boat loads of cash to stay afloat and its richer European partners are scrambling to put a package together. The German government are desperately trying to enlist more contributors and the UK is an obvious target. So the question is will David Cameron rollover or stand firm, for now he is standing firm. One of the reasons for keeping the pound was to avoid such nonsense. This bailout is good money after bad, all in aid of keeping the Eurocrats in highly paid jobs rather than helping the Greeks solve their debt problems. Taking on more debt is not a cure for debts, it is akin to giving smokers another cigarette as they try to kick the habit.

Europe and America and the The Global Debt Crisis / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: LEAP

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn December 15, 2010, in the GEAB N°50, LEAP/E2020 anticipated the explosion of Western government debt (1) in the second half of 2011. We were then describing a process that would start with the European government debt crisis and then set fire to the heart of the global financial system, namely US federal debt (2). And here we are with this issue at the start of the second half of 2011, with a global economy in complete disarray (3), an increasingly unstable global monetary system (4) and financial centres in desperate straits (5), all this despite the thousands of billions of public money invested to avoid precisely this type of situation. The insolvency of the global financial system, and of the Western financial system in the first place, returns again to the front of the stage after just over a year of political cosmetics aimed at burying this fundamental problem under truckloads of cash.
