Bernanke Wealth Tax, Why Does He Hate Old People? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA question that follows from the above is also of interest. Why is Bernanke transferring so much income and wealth from savers and investors to mega-banks and other speculative funds? We are of the basic crowd that believes that actions are more important than words. Since Bernanke has assumed a dictatorial role at the Federal Reserve, savers and investors have been punished. We need only look at the poor plight of savers to see the imposition of the Bernanke Wealth Tax.

Eurozone Crisis Spain's Capital Flight Is Now Bigger Than Asian Financial Crisis / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSpain is emerging as the centre of the battlefield for the survival of the Eurozone as the probability for further fragmentation and exits increases dramatically. The flight of capital from Spain is now bigger than what Indonesia, one of the hardest hit countries during the Asian financial crisis experienced in the late 1990s. On an annualised basis, portfolio and investment outflows from Spain now total more than USD 750 billion, ie, more than 50 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as measured by the World Bank.

The U.S. QE Debate / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an ongoing three way debate between those who believe the Fed should do more to strengthen the recovery, those who believe that the recovery is strong enough to continue on its own, and those who believe that the economy has been so fundamentally altered by the recession that no amount of stimulus can succeed in pushing unemployment down to pre-crash levels. As usual, they all have it wrong (although some are more wrong than others).

Why the Fed Should Not Do QE3 / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: In his recent speech at the Jackson Hole economic symposium, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made some interesting comments in regards to monetary policy. Following these remarks, gold moved up strongly, indicating that the market’s interpretation was that the Federal Reserve was indeed going to enact further stimulative monetary policy, also known as quantitative easing #3 (QE3). However, I don’t think it’s clear from the speech or recent events as to why now is the best time to use this monetary policy tool.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke Speaking from Jackson Hole / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy read: You will by now have been bombarded for three-plus days by written and verbal commentary on Federal Reserve Chair Bernanke's Friday, August 31, 2012 remarks made from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. You will have observed last Friday afternoon's U.S.$35+ jump in the physical gold price, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index advances on Friday on the same news. Friday was a 'when Mr. Bernanke speaks, everyone listens positively' moment, even if it is 'just possible' that not everything Mr. Bernanke said on Friday ought not to be seen positively.

The Quadrillion Dollar Deflationary Debt Raft / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur Down Under roving reporter Skip came up with a few interesting questions when watching an interview that Russia Today recently ran with economist Richard Duncan.

Where doth debt take us going forward, and, for that matter, where has it - really - taken us so far? If and when Japan implodes, does that force the US out of the possibility of moving - or already being - into the Japanese deflationary scenario and into something more sinister? Will it be a quadrillion dollar long-term drip-feed, in essence prolonging death, or a massive quadrillion dollar diversion into breakthrough technologies? Both perhaps? Go halfsies?

Ultra Easy Monetary Policy and the Law of Unintended Consequences / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article "No very deep knowledge of economics is usually needed for grasping the immediate effects of a measure; but the task of economics is to foretell the remoter effects, and so to allow us to avoid such acts as attempt to remedy a present ill by sowing the seeds of a much greater ill for the future." – Ludwig von Mises

We heard from Bernanke today with his Jackson Hole speech. Not quite the fireworks of his speech ten years ago, but it does offer us a chance to contrast his thinking with that of another Federal Reserve official who just published a paper on the Dallas Federal Reserve website. Bernanke laid out the rationalization for his policy of ever more quantitative easing. But how effective is it? And are there unintended consequences we should be aware of? Why is it that the markets seem to positively salivate over the prospect of additional QE?

Expects U.S. QE3 'Relatively Soon' Says PIMCO's Bill Gross / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Gross of PIMCO spoke to Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan this afternoon during a special edition of "Street Smart" live from the Bloomberg Link convention headquarters in Tampa, FL and said that he expects more quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve "relatively soon" and that "they have a dual mandate."

Gross said "unemployment is still above 8% and it's obvious that the Fed isn't comfortable, nor is the nation or the economy with 8% unemployment going forward," but that "Ben Bernanke would agree that the next quantitative ease will produce limited results."

U.S. Economy: The Financial Tectonic Plates Are Shifting Once Again / Interest-Rates / Financial Markets 2012

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory books call the period after the War of 1812 "The Era of Good Feelings."

America was a young nation that had a sense of purpose. National political strife was at a minimum; optimism was in the air.

Major advances in technology and engineering brought the country turnpikes for easier travel and "The Canal Craze" for more efficient commerce.

Eurozone Debt Crisis: Will The Grexit Finally Become Reality? / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Gersten writes: The Eurozone debt crisis has long needed a "Grexit" or some other landmark event to occur to change the direction the beleaguered continent is headed.

When Mario Draghi announced that he would do whatever he can to preserve the euro, it seemed that moment was imminent. Since he uttered those words on July 26, the IBEX 35 in Spain has gained 17%, while Italy's FTSE Milano Italia Borsa is up 13%.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlright, OK, so we have new sorts of relative highs in European and US stock markets, even as we keep a w(e)ary eye on Shanghai's new lows. The western highs seem to have a lot to do with all kinds of expectations of ECB sovereign bond purchases and/or cooling German resistance against them.

1. Creating money out of thin air on a massive basis is all that stands between the current state of hidden depression, and overt depression with unemployment levels in excess of those seen in the US Great Depression of the 1930s.

Exactly What Can the ECB Do? / Interest-Rates / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets are continuing their short squeeze, Euro-phoria induced lunacy. As a quick reminder the S&P 500 is up nearly 5% while many European indexes have rallied double digits (Spain’s Ibex is up an unbelievable 17%!)

In light of this, we need to take a look at the facts,  because much of this feels too much like 2008 (at that time the S&P 500 rallied 7%, 11%, even 18% based on various “interventions” all of which turned out to be duds)

Fed Money Printing Going Digital / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke is threatening us with "further action" if the economy does not do something or other. (He cannot remember his objective from one press conference to the next, so there is no reason anyone else should.) One view holds the chairman has done all he can, but this underestimates his options. First to follow is a summary of what he proposed in advance and what he delivered. Second, there are some options floating through central-banking channels that should not be dismissed. In conclusion, the consequence may be the end of central banking.
