Greece and Goldman: Can the World Afford the American Elite's Addiction To Abusive Banking Practices
Und das große Feuer in Soho sieben Kinder und ein Greis - in der Menge Mackie Messer, den man nicht fragt und der nichts weiss. Und die minderjährige Witwe deren Namen jeder weiss wachte auf und war geschändet - Mackie, welches war dein Preis? Kurt Weill, Bertholdt Brecht, Die Moritat von Mackier Messer, 1928 Here is an example of the consequences of the failure to reform the outsized and kleptocratic financial system after bailing it out, even years after the latest fina

Guarantee Dollar Death Dynamics
The USDollar is on a collision course with imminent death. It is utterly amazing that so many supposedly smart analysts and highly paid wealth managers cannot see the obvious path on which the USDollar treads, limps, and struts proudly, dangerously, and abusively, suspended by numerous false cables and tethers. The USDollar cannot be sustained in its current form or on its present course. The abuse of its management and stewardship will be told in history books (possibly with certain chapters sc

  Greece’s referendum
This coming Sunday Greece will hold its referendum. The question to be asked is not, as the foreign press initially reported it, about leaving the euro. It is about accepting or rejecting the troika's bail-out terms.The Greek government's finance minister is making this distinction clear to voters in the few days remaining. As if to ram the point home, Greece was reported earlier this week to be considering taking out an injunction at the European Court of Justice to block attempts to expel Gree

The Causes of the Greece's Crisis
How did the misconstruction of the Eurozone cause the Greece’s debt crisis? The main reason was excessive public spending starting in the 1980s when the socialist government came to power. Since then, external borrowing was used to boost consumption. Greece has been living beyond its means, long before it joined the Eurozone. However, after it adopted the single currency, the public spending soared. Thanks to the flawed institutional structure of the Eurozone, Greece could externalize its reckl

On Monday, It's China Versus Greece
Fear and greed are both getting a serious workout lately, but Monday will be even more fun than usual because of two big stories that hit over the weekend. First, Greece decided to put the draconian demands of its European creditors to a popular vote, to which the creditors responded by cutting Greece off from new bailout money. Greek citizens, now staring down the barrel of capital controls and/or bank failures, are busily emptying their bank accounts: Greeks Line Up at Ban

The Tragedy of the Euro
The gloomy economic situation of Greece has been the topic of many Gold News Monitors – we wrote recently about it here and here, but also in the February Market Overview dedicated to European turmoil from the beginning of this year. It is high time to analyze more thoroughly the relationship between Greece’s debt crisis and gold. But first we must examine the institutional foundations of the Eurozone and its currency, as they not only did not prevent, but actually encouraged imprudent Greece’s

Credit Market Warning
There are large signs of stress now present in the credit markets. You might not know it from today's multi-generationally low interest rates, but other key measures such as liquidity and volatility are flashing worrying signs. Look, we all know that this centrally planned experiment forcing financial assets ever higher is simply fostering multiple bubbles, each in search of a pin. As all bubbles do, they are going to end with bang. I keep my eyes on the credit markets because that’s where the r

  Why the Fed Is Afraid To Raise Interest Rates
Even though the major stock market averages are flat for the first six months of the year, by nearly every measure the stock market is still extremely overvalued. This point is not lost on Ms. Yellen and company, as the Fed Chair herself has recently assented that the current value of stocks are "quite high". Given this, the Fed must privately be afraid that even a small change in the Fed Funds Rate could serve as the needle that pops the massive bubble in the stock market. Exactl
