Was the TARP and the AIG Bailout Itself a Scam? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Craig Roberts writes: Professor Michael Hudson (CounterPunch, March 18 ) is correct that the orchestrated  outrage over the $165 million AIG bonuses is a diversion from the thousand times greater theft from taxpayers of the approximately $200 billion "bailout" of AIG.  Nevertheless, it is a diversion that serves an important purpose.  It has taught an inattentive American public that the elites run the government in their own private interests.

Big Business Fights Against Unionisation, Employee Free Choice Act / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBig business has launched a no-holds-barred propaganda blitz against the Employee Free Choice Act. Their goal is to scare people into believing that if the bill passes it will trigger higher unemployment and a deeper recession. According to opponents, there's even the threat of creeping socialism. The truth, of course, is far less dramatic. The Employee Free Choice Act or so called "card check" simply makes it easier for unions to organize. Here's a short summary of the bill posted on the Change To Win web site:

Well … that's exactly the situation the U.S. is potentially staring at if foreign governments decide they don't want to loan us any more money by buying U.S. Treasury and other government-backed bonds.

Credit Crisis Biggest Victims Get No Bailout / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Amy Goodman writes: Taxpayers' bailout money for AIG bonuses has rightfully provoked a massive backlash against AIG, Wall Street, President Barack Obama and his economic advisers, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers. The U.S. public now owns 80 percent of AIG. The outrage is bipartisan: Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley even suggested that AIG executives "resign or go commit suicide." New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo just released details on the bonuses, exposing AIG's ridiculous claim that they are "retention bonuses" aimed at keeping key employees, since 11 of those who received bonuses of $1 million or more are no longer employed by AIG.

Destruction of the Government in Three Easy Steps / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoe Brewer writes: In eight short years, conservatives have effectively bankrupted many state governments and left the fed in shambles. And now citizens have to "make tough decisions" and share the suffering equally across the land (unless of course, you're part of that lucky 1% who co-opted the functions of government to serve their own ends... they'll be cozy with their offshore bank accounts, golden parachutes, and permanent tax holidays).

Systemic Financial Loss- Did You Ever Lose A Close Loved One? / Politics / Financial Crash

By: Michael_T_Bucci

dealing with systemic loss: facing the future and the death of your world - Did you ever lose a very close loved one? A child or a spouse or your closest surviving parent or sibling? Did they die suddenly or slowly. If slowly, did you toss between hope and despair over each stage of their catastrophic illness? Hoping against hope. Despair ever lurking. Signs of recovery one day, then relapse the next. If this did ever happened to you, you would understand the mind and emotions of the masses at this moment. They are facing death: the death of an income, a lifestyle, a home, a society, a system, a world.

The Mantra of Cutting Wasteful Government Spending Against Reality of Stimulus Spending / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast weekend, Ben Bernanke took an unprecedented gamble for a sitting Fed Chairman: he granted a long-form interview to 60 Minutes, America's most watched news program. There can be no doubt that the interview came about as the result of a coordinated strategy between the Obama Administration and the Federal Reserve. But was the decision to offer the public a rare look at the inner workings of the central bank an act of resolution or desperation?

Mark-to-Market Isn't the Problem / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt seems as if many have been fooled by those supporting the banks. The general argument that has been made is that mark-to-market accounting has been largely responsible for the banking mess since it creates price transparency for assets held on the books daily. Given the problems in real estate, mark-to-market has been particularly harmful to mortgage-backed securities. Therefore, as the argument continues, we should eliminate, suspend or revise mark-to-market rules because the price transparency it offers is not necessarily indicative of asset values. Finally, removing mark-to-market would help rescue the banks. I challenge these views.

AIG Larry Summers and the Politics of CDS Deflection / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinally US authorities have gotten ‘tough' with the predator financial institutions. The world has been waiting for such decisive intervention since an unending series of Government bailouts of financial institutions began early in 2008 amounting to now trillions of taxpayer dollars. Now, with the world's largest insurance giant, AIG, the White House Economic Council chairman, Larry Summers has expressed ‘outrage.' President Obama himself has entered the fray to promise ‘justice.' US Senators have threatened a law to change the injustice. The only problem is they are all exercising ‘politics of deflection,' taking attention away from the real problem, the fraudulent bailout.

The Financial Sector: "A House Burning Down" / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke’s False Analogy - Prof. Michael Hudson writes: On the March 15 CBS show "60 Minutes", Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke used a false analogy already popularized by President Obama in his quasi-State of the Union Speech. He likened the financial sector to a house burning down – fair enough, as it is destroying property values, leading to foreclosures, abandonments, stripping (for copper wire and anything else recoverable) and certainly a devastation of value. The problem with this analogy was just where this building was situated, and its relationship to "other houses" ( e.g ., the rest of the economy).

Bernanke's TALF Witness Protection Program / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFed chief Ben Bernanke's new funding facility is a real doozy. In fact, if the Term Asset-Backed Loan Facility or TALF, which is set to launch on Thursday, doesn't convince the American people that it's time to take a wrecking ball to the Central Bank and start over, than nothing will. Bernanke and his co-conspirator at Treasury, Timothy Geithner, are planning to revive the shadow banking system by dumping $2 trillion into the same over-leveraged, derivatives-based garbage that blew up the financial system in the first place. All the blabbering about a "good bank-bad bank" remedy appears to have been a diversion. This is how Bloomberg sums it up:
