Savings at Risk in the New Age / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The illusion of deposit safety continues to prevail among the population living in the United States, but does the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or FDIC offer a true guarantee for bank deposits?

The FDIC is a U.S. government corporation that operates as an independent agency, and banks pay premiums to the FDIC to insure the deposits they accept from the public. The FDIC’s reserves are actually quite small compared to the amount of deposits it insures, with mandated coverage of only 1.35 percent required in its Deposit Insurance Fund or DIF.

Zero Interest Rates is Not Economic Stimulus, Rather a Death Knell / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The propaganda has been thick over the last few years, especially since the US banking system suffered a fatal heart attack in September 2008. It has not recovered since, still insolvent, still wrecked, having returned a zombie center with a USTBond carry trade core and continued money laundering basement lifeline. The Jackass is tired beyond words, beyond description, of hearing that the Zero Percent Interest Policy is being kept as a stimulus measure to encourage continued economic recovery. It is neither a stimulant, nor is the USEconomy in recovery mode. The official 0% rate signals a death knell to the national financial foundation and economic vibrancy, the climax event slow in its pathogenesis following the departure from the Gold Standard in 1971. The official 0% FedFunds rate (call it 25 basis points, no matter) is a direct signal of terminal illness for the entire capitalist structures within both the United States and its Western partners who stupidly or helplessly follow its lead. They followed the US lead in the housing & mortgage bubble disaster with complete wreckage, yet they continue to follow the US monetary lead. They claim to have no choice. They do indeed have a choice, to discard the USDollar and to sell out of the USTreasury Bond, to impose a Gold Standard.

Dallas Fed's Fisher: Cyprus shows danger of too big to fail / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Bloomberg

Dallas Federal Reserve Bank president Richard Fisher spoke with Bloomberg TV's Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle on "Market Makers" today, saying that "there is no QE infinity."

Fisher said that big banks have a "substantial" cost-of-funding advantage and that "Cyprus is a great example, once again, as we saw in Iceland, of banks that jeopardize their entire country. We cannot let that happen."

April 2013 A Tipping Point In The Financial System / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

March and April 2013 may go down in history as the tipping point for the western financial system.

We have already seen:

  • Lehman Brothers and many other financial firms collapse.
  • $700 Billion in TARP funds arranged by banking insiders for banking insiders at the expense of US taxpayers.
  • Over $16 Trillion in bailouts, guarantees, swaps, and loans created by the Fed and given to various banks, nations, and other insiders.
  • MFGlobal took “segregated” customer funds, the exchange provided no compensation to customers, and yet no criminal indictments have been issued.
  • Global derivatives total $700 Trillion to well over $1,000 Trillion, depending on who is counting. Some are “toxic waste.”
  • Many European bailouts and “fixes.”
  • Spain, Italy, Slovenia, and perhaps France in trouble.
  • US official debt approaching $17 Trillion with unfunded liabilities many times larger.
  • The Federal Reserve creating $85 Billion per month (over $115,000,000 per hour) to support banks and the US government.

Danger in Your Bank Account / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The thinking behind GoldMoney’s business model was that there might come a time when prudent savers would want to protect themselves from the twin risks of a global banking crisis and a loss of purchasing power of paper currencies. The first of these two risks is now upon us, and it is important that everyone with savings to protect is aware of what is happening to banks and their bank accounts. By the time this is fully understood by the media it may be too late to act.

What Cyprus Taught Me About Retirement Savings / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot writes: In light of the events that occurred in Cyprus over the last couple weeks, many investors may be wondering if it’s safer to hide your retirement savings under a mattress. After all, what’s to say it couldn’t happen here?

In June 2012, Cyprus, like many members of the European Union (EU), sought a bailout after suffering heavy losses. The company’s banking sector was hit by the economic crisis that crippled Greece. Cypriot banks had made loans to Greek borrowers that were worth 160% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP).

Bank Depositors Take Your Money and Run / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Fred_Sheehan

It is a wonder of the times that, in matters of money, such trust endures when those in whom it is invested work so hard to demonstrate they will squander or confiscate it. Both money and trust. At the very least, the mandarins have made no attempt to hide their inability to think and act beyond today's headlines. Every day is writ anew, with complete ignorance of previous decrees and assurances.

When It Comes Time to Steal… They’re Coming After YOUR Money / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Graham_Summers

Cyprus should scare the living daylights out of everyone.

Cyprus has shown us that when things get bad enough in Europe, bureaucrats will STEAL money from the people. That is bad enough as it completely goes against the central tenants of Capitalism and Democracy. Not to mention it also targets the wrong people (average citizens) instead of the banks that created this whole mess.

Cyprus Crisis the Story of All Western Nation-states / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Peter_Schiff

The news of the month comes from the large Mediterranean island of Cyprus, where Keynesian economic planning left the economy facing complete bankruptcy. The result was an unprecedented step forward in the financial collapse of the West: direct forfeiture of bank deposits.

Despite official protestations to the contrary, this fallout will spread to a bank near you.

Canadian Bank Deposits As Safe As Cypriot Deposits / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

Rest easy, Canadians, for your bank accounts are going to be made as safe as those bank accounts in Cyprus. Just take a look at the Canadian government's budget plan for 2013, particularly pages 144 and 145 of Economic Action Plan 2013. There the Canadian government promises to use Canadian deposits to save "systematicaly important" banks (emphasis ours).

Cyprus Kills the Myth That European Monetary Union Is Benign / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: John_Mauldin

This piece from Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is about as hard-hitting an analysis of Cyprus as I have read and really makes an interesting introduction to this week’s Outside the Box. No messing around:

Capital controls have shattered the monetary unity of EMU. A Cypriot euro is no longer a core euro….

The complicity of EU authorities in the original plan to violate insured bank savings – halted only by the revolt of the Cypriot parliament – leaves the suspicion that they will steal anybody’s money if leaders of the creditor states think it is in their immediate interest to do so.

The Real Fallout From Cyprus Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Michael_Pento

Holders of the Euro currency should be glad that the Troika is finally doing something besides just making more loans, printing more money and monetizing more debt—unlike what the Treasury and Federal Reserve is in the habit of doing. For me, this has to be positive for the Euro in the long term because the ECB is not expanding its balance sheet, while the Fed is rapidly expanding the U.S. monetary base.

Ron Paul on the Great Cyprus Bank Robbery / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The dramatic recent events in Cyprus have highlighted the fundamental weakness in the European banking system and the extreme fragility of fractional reserve banking. Cypriot banks invested heavily in Greek sovereign debt, and last summer's Greek debt restructuring resulted in losses equivalent to more than 25 percent of Cyprus' GDP. These banks then took their bad investments to the government, demanding a bailout from an already beleaguered Cypriot treasury. The government of Cyprus then turned to the European Union (EU) for a bailout.

What Have Central Bankers and Governments Learnt From Cyprus Crisis? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

Since 'The Great Unwind' began in 2007, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. Yet, what is extremely important now is to focus attention on the most recent bank bail-ins by way of bailouts!  No matter what the authorities say, what has been learnt cannot be unlearnt:  the dangerous bail-in cat is now finally out of the bag!  It remains to be seen how big and predatory this new cat can become.

The Sword of Damocles Still Hangs Over Cyprus / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Patrick_Henningsen

PATHOS – While bureaucrats and technocrats in Nicosia have been busy trying agree on an even horrible haircut than the each of the previous Troika proposals, the EU’s deadly pathogen has begun to spread to the far corners of the country, hitting the southern seaside tourist town of Pathos.

Cyprus managed to avoid the initial danger of an all out bank run and the potential for mass rioting this week, which is probably down to the fact that no Cypriot wants to see their country become a lawless banana republic in the Mediterranean.

Forget too-big-to-fail Instead Kill the Fractional Reserve Banking System / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Colin_Twiggs

Interesting discussion on Bloomberg about currency-backed deposits and equity-funded loans.

The fractional reserve banking system is the primary cause of instability and asset bubbles in the global economy, allowing banks to create money out of thin air. Credit expansion above the rate of real GDP growth has only two possible consequences: inflation or asset bubbles. Both do serious long-term damage to the economy.
