Financial Markets Regulations, Baseball and the Law of Unintended Consequences / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the World Series coming up soon, it seems timely to compare some key financial regulations to the rules of baseball.

Say the visiting team scores on an error in the top of the first and the home team fails to score in the bottom of the inning. Under the current mark-to-market rule for securities, known as FAS 157, the game would be over at that point -- there would be no chance to play the other eight innings so the home team could try to get the run back.

Irony: Fed Decisions To Undermine U.S. Banking System? / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's start with an important quote gleaned from an excellent article in today's Washington Post which describes the Fed's massive and unprecedented bailout plans that are intended to rescue the entire financial system from further implosion:

“The program announced this morning runs the risk in the long run of profoundly changing the nature of our financial system and, specifically, undermining the nation's banking system,” wrote American Banker's Association President Edward Yingling.

Obama and McCain Don't Understand the Financial Markets / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI saw both John McCain and Joe Biden on CNBC this week, and I was astounded by the shallowness of their answers on how to address the current economic crisis.

Both offered the typical Capitol Hill solution to any problem – more regulations.

Nouriel Roubini Dead Wrong on Financial Markets Regulation / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get to addressing Roubini's blaming of the mess we are in on "free-market laissez-faire" philosophy, let's take a look at calls for Paulson and Bernanke to resign, and one other post on "Socialism For The Rich".

Inquiring minds should consider Senator Bunning Says Paulson Acts Like Socialist, Should Resign .
Senator Jim Bunning said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, by rescuing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is acting like China's finance minister and both Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke should step down.

Coming Wave of Government Regulation and the Risk to the US Dollar / Currencies / Market Regulation

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several months it has become clear that there is a cauldron of regulation brewing in Washington. The bursting of the subprime bubble and dislocation in the financial sector has brought with it, in its aftermath, the risk of overregulation. Members of the political class are brimming with confidence that the political, economic and social considerations have aligned to finally tame the market. Serious consideration is being given to policies that would curb the ability of investors to hedge against future instability in markets, engage in financial innovation and even determine the pay of senior managers, much less corporate executives. What is beginning to take shape is not a necessary bout of reform, but a wave of regulation that will stem that necessary flow of investment into the US and put the dollar at greater risk.

Fed Uses Self Created Credit Crisis to Grab Power / Interest-Rates / Market Regulation

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThroughout history, governments have always used crises to justify blatant power grabs.  Often the crisis subsides, but the expanded government powers remain.  In America this week, the tendency came into sharp focus.  Congress signaled that it is preparing to perpetuate the Bush Administration's domestic wiretapping program, and has even abandoned the pretense that warrantless surveillance be confined to terrorism.  Similarly, even though our financial crisis has yet to reach full flower, Treasury Secretary Paulson announced plans to give the Federal Reserve new and explicit powers to oversee and regulate the financial services industry.  However, a sober look at his plan reveals that it is tantamount to giving the fox complete autonomy to guard the henhouse.

The Real Role of Financial Market Regulators / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Brady_Willett

Having watched the Financial Accounting Standard Board ( FASB ) grapple with the unexpensed stock options problem for more than 3-decades, and still forced to watch the consulting-crazed SEC settle case after case without forcing the wrongdoers to admit culpability, a strange sense of satisfaction arrived last week when the Financial Services Authority (FSA) attacked short sellers. To recap, the FSA said that since short sellers may be ganging up on companies undertaking rights issues the shorts will need to start disclosing their positions in a week. Not in a few month or years after the financial service lobby has severely watered down the original rule. Rather, if you short more than 0.25% during the rights issue process you will disclose your position starting June 20.  Period.
