Varoufakis´ Game Theory Mistake, and Why he was Wrong / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Atlantic_Perspective

The Greek finance minister is supposed to be a master in the Game Theory. But like all other theories, the Game Theory is based on assumptions. And Varoufakis got his assumptions wrong. In this short article we explain why.

The whole Greek strategy has been based on the assumption that “if we default, Europe is screwed”. Is it? No.

Greece's Varoufakis: I will Resign if there's a 'Yes' Vote / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bloomberg

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told Bloomberg Television's Guy Johnson that he'll quit if Greece votes to accept creditors' bailout proposals in Sunday's referendum.

Johnson directly asked him "If there's a yes vote come Monday night, you will not be Finance Minister" and Varaufakis responded: "I will not."

Varoufakis also said that he would "prefer to cut my arm off" than sign a deal that fails to restructure Greece's debt.

The Student Loan Bubble: Gambling with America’s Future / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Peter_Schiff

Addison Quale writes: The federal government can't seem to help itself. After overseeing the inflating and bursting of the dot-com bubble in the 1990s and the subprime mortgage bubble in the 2000s, the United States government is at it again - this time in the area of student loans.

Student loan debt now stands at a record $1.2 trillion, which represents the second largest category of consumer debt after home mortgages. It has grown by leaps and bounds since the financial crisis of 2008 and now surpasses even car loans and credit card debt.

Thanks to reckless political and economic mismanagement, Zimbabwe holds clues to the future of other nations – like ours.

Granted, this failed state's policies have been more egregious than those perpetrated by the U.S. government against its people. Nonetheless, some of the outcomes could be similar. And I'm going to tell you one way to protect yourself.

The Power of Ideas for the Fiat Age / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Tom_Naysburn

In every aspect of daily life people are searching for the best arguments; where to buy the cheapest and best quality washing powder, or internet provider, or car insurance or gym membership or whatever. The list of possibilities is infinite. People also like to acquire the best arguments, covet them and use them for personal gain, mostly without the consent of the owner. This is merely human nature, as the desire for intelligence sets us apart from the animals. If you don't believe me just consider the billions spent worldwide by intelligence agencies of various countries to obtain the arguments that others do not have.

Three Total Wealth Stock Investor Tactics You’ll Need Because Greece Isn’t Over / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Greece actually missed its payment last night, exactly as we thought it would. And in doing so, it became the first Eurozone country to ever default on its debt. Some say that the country is in “arrears,” but that’s splitting hairs.

At this point, “everybody” wants quick resolution.

Things are so bad that nearly 14,000 people have contributed to a crowdfunding page started by a 29 year old Londoner, Thom Feeney, on Indiegogo.com. As of yesterday, donations totaled $245,000.

By: Steve_H_Hanke

With the failure of the Greek government to make a scheduled payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), we have moved from high drama to low farce. The Marxists who are running the show in Athens have scored a first: Greece is the first so-called advanced economy to miss an IMF payment in the Fund's 71-year history.

By: Jack_Steiman

Greece is the number one headline these days. We have other factors to look at from froth to horrific-looking monthly-index charts. But, by far, the most popular and important subject with regards to the health of the stock market is based on how things are moving along, or not, with Greece. Will they default after the vote on Sunday? Will the public speak up and vote yes on the sanctions for which the Euro zone are asking? Will Tsipras give in to the people? No one knows the answers to those questions.

Guaranteed US Dollar Death Dynamics / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The USDollar is on a collision course with imminent death. It is utterly amazing that so many supposedly smart analysts and highly paid wealth managers cannot see the obvious path on which the USDollar treads, limps, and struts proudly, dangerously, and abusively, suspended by numerous false cables and tethers. The USDollar cannot be sustained in its current form or on its present course. The abuse of its management and stewardship will be told in history books (possibly with certain chapters scribed by the Jackass). The aggressive defense of the USDollar includes criminal activity on a widespread scale never witnessed before. It is a veritable global money war, not so much a global financial crisis. The system, centered upon the USDollar, is collapsing under its own insolvency and corrupt underpinnings amidst the din of war. The truth is almost nowhere to be seen. The USGovt is demanding that allies support the global currency reserve, even though doing so guarantees a financial structure collapse and an economic breakdown. The safe haven is Gold & Silver, in the form of bars & coins, kept secure outside all nations that speak English, and outside nations that are closely allied with the USFed and USDept Treasury which operate like a vast crime syndicate.

With the Greek banks closing, capital controls being imposed, and the unwillingness of the European Central Bank to expand its emergency liquidity assistance program - the stability of the global financial system is officially in play. Nothing is set in stone yet, but a looming Greek default and potential economic catastrophe in Greece is setting elements into motion on a global basis that have the ability to impact many things.

Forget Drachmas Greece Syriza Government Could Instruct Central Bank to Print Euros! / Currencies / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This week Greece started to default on its debt repayments. However, unlike other countries that have gone bankrupt in the past, Greece as part of the Euro-zone officially cannot print money and inflate the purchase power of debt, wages and savings away. In exchange for this Greece enjoys monetary stability i.e. low inflation which means the only way to deal with the structural deficit that is generating the debt is to CUT government spending and wages so as to make Greece more competitive.

The Dow stocks index has been on a volatile slide since making its 18,350 new all time high of Mid May, having recently nudged to a low of 17,600 that many have attributed in large part to the unfolding Greece debt crisis, the latest of which is Greece missing its deadline for a Euro 1.6 billion repayment to the IMF Tuesday that has galvanised stock market bears to once more proclaim that the stocks bull market is over and a new bear market has begun.

Gold Stocks Break Below 2008 Low / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion, short (half) speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward point of view.

Gold and silver declined yesterday, but the really profound action was seen in the precious metals mining stocks. Both key indices for this sector (the HUI and XAU) declined below their respective 2008 lows and managed to close below them. What’s next? Will gold and silver stocks bounce like they did in late 2014?

Silver Tunnel Vision 'Experts' / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

Over the past month, we have been subjected to one breathless article after another predicting a huge upside blowout in silver as "the trapped shorts are forced out".

"The rise in open interest to a record high, even higher than when silver was trading near $50, tells us that some big money is going into silver and it is just a matter of time before the shorts are given a religious experience".

Thus would the summation be of the crux of the silver perma-bull "analysis".
