Nationalization of the Economy is Not as Scary as it Sounds / Politics / Nationalization

By: Submissions

David Sirota writes: Amidst the punditocracy's handwringing about the supposedly unprecedented possibility of nationalization in America, Paul Krugman this week reminded his New York Times readers that nationalization is "as American as apple pie." He noted that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has been nationalizing about two banks per week, and that the best way to save our financial system is to temporarily nationalize it.

Time to Break Up the Big Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTimothy Geithner is putting the finishing touches on a plan that will dump $1 trillion of toxic assets onto the US taxpayer. The plan, which goes by the opaque moniker the "Public-Private Investment Fund" (PPIF), is designed to provide lavish incentives to hedge funds and private equity firms to purchase bad assets from failing banks. It is a sweetheart deal that provides government financing and guarantees for illiquid mortgage-backed junk for which there is currently no active market.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis analysis presents the current status of Britain's path towards bankruptcy which I first pointed out in April 2008 which followed the Bank of England's initial offering of a £50 billion slush fund to the banks that would never be repaid and marked the tip of the bank bailout ice-berg.

United States Government Saving Capitalism From Itself / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I came across two items that I think are worthy of being in Outside the Box, so I am going to give you both. The first is an essay by good friend Paul McCulley, Managing Director of PIMCO, called "Saving Capitalist Banking from Itself." The second is a recent speech by Paul Volker, former Fed Chairman and a (hopefully very) influential member of President Obama's economic advisory team. This speech is a must read. Taken together they provide a cautionary tale of what the world of banking will need to look like when we get to the end of the process. This OTB is a little longer than most, but I think it is important reading. If you don't know where we are headed, it is hard to imagine the journey.

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week the Federal Reserve responded to the American people's increased concerns over our monetary policy by presenting new initiatives aimed at enhancing the Fed's transparency and accountability. As someone who has called for more openness from the Fed for over 30 years, I was pleased to see the Fed acknowledge the legitimacy of this need.

Economic Freefall a Blessing in Disguise / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon Ronnquist writes: One thing we should not overlook when taking in the impact of the current economic situation is that it is both inevitable and invaluable in equal measure. That there was no escaping the consequences we are now facing has been a well known fact among those in the know for many years. If anything, it is amazing that we have staved it off for so long. For this we have the hard working men and women of the real world to thank, who toiled on in the name of pride, dignity and responsibility until the burden of debt simply became to great to bear.

Geithner's Toxic Plans for Toxic Assets / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExit Paulson, enter Geithner with the latest "no banker left behind plan" - aka whatever Wall Street wants, Wall Street gets. Yet, the reception was underwhelming. The Dow plummeted 382 points while investors took shelter in bonds and gold. AP reported that "the new bank rescue plan landed with a thud on Wall Street" as investors worried that no end to the crisis is in sight. Editorial and op-ed commentaries were near unanimously negative and some especially critical.

Geithner's Plan.. Mark-to-Market, Who Gets Screwed? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGrowing up I had a girlfriend whose family had once owned a string of retail outlets in Bavaria (that's in " Germany " ( Europe )). One day her dad told me his story. A few years before the war a local Party Official came round to the house and proposed to his dad that in return for selling him all those stores for 100 Reichsmarks he would help the family get out; the alternative was a bunch of very cheap train tickets, cattle-truck class.

Shopping for Toxic Assets at the "Zombie Bank". Final Chapter of the Credit Crunch? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTimothy Geithner's new plan is to raise $2.5 trillion or so from the private sector to co-invest with him buying Toxic Assets. That sounds risky; but perhaps the flight to safety is over-priced these days? If so then "safety" is "risky".

But there are a few things I don't understand. Not least that the last time I looked, the main problem with buying those assets was finding anyone who wanted to sell some.

The City: Gold Capital of the World- Goldsmiths Part XXXI / Politics / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Robert_Bradshaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the early days of ancient Greece, governmental units called city-states developed. As these entities were feudalistic, the local fat cats controlled them. Perhaps from this organizational concept, other city-states developed in other parts of the world and often with surrounding walls. Over the centuries, these city-states proved hard to defend. So they largely vanished from the world scene; though some survived.
