Ohio Congresswoman Urges Foreclosed Constituents to Stay Put

January 31, 2009 – Comments (10)

Wow... this could get interesting. It brings up an interesting idea... if the process of converting whole mortgages into bundled securities obscures who the real holders of the debt are -- and I understand they are STILL trying to trace paper trails from the Bear Stearns portfolio --then does the hoeowner really owe anyone? I see two possible outcomes for all this: 1.) people do start to refuse to leave en masse, leading to messy confrontations with local authorities and legal entanglements to last decades, or 2.) the government will give up trying to get value out of its valueless mountain of absorbed securities and issue a mass forgiveness of mortgage debt along the lines of what many are seeking for indebted developing nations. However it plays out, it will be historic.  [more]

What Happened to the Infrastructure Stimulus?

Funny, I could have sworn Obama said in the campaign something about a giant investment in infrastructure to kick-start the American economy, did he not? :P   [more]



How do you like your bailout now?

January 26, 2009 – Comments (4)

This is why you never let your criminal Congressmen dole out your dollars to criminal bankers. On the eve of the TARP vote, I was on the lawn of the capitol in Washington DC protesting the move on the basis that placing our money in the hands of those who have already exhibited a willful propensity to waste and misappropriate money is a collosal mistake.    [more]

More Excellent Spot-on Analysis by Trader Dan Norcini

January 23, 2009 – Comments (12)

This guy possesses the most comprehensive understanding of both the macroeconomic drivers of impending dollar weakness and strength for gold of anyone I've read in recent years. His near-daily accounts of how gold is trading from a technical perspective as an active trader himself, combined with that grasp of the bigger picture, make his analysis essential reading for anyone with exposure to gold... and especially to those trying to wrap their heads around the very complex issues of the inflation/deflation debate. Trader Dan is the man! He provides his insights free of charge as a service to the community of investors with gold exposure, and is a regular contributor over at Jim Sinclair's Between the two of them, there's nothing a Fool can't learn about the U.S. dollar, the coming scale of this crisis, and gold.   [more]



JPMorgan CEO says thew worst is yet to come

January 22, 2009 – Comments (7)

Someone should tell Hank Paulson this news... unless -- like Cheney -- he too has suddenly been relegated to a wheelchair within hours of the end of his tenure. How many billions of $ do you think those officials who declared the worst was behind us late last summer cost the average American consumer by creating a false and misleading sense of comfort? There is simply no accountability anymore.   [more]

Britain at the Edge of Bankruptcy

January 21, 2009 – Comments (1)

Keep in mind, Fools, that as horrid as the Pound is looking at the moment, the USD remains at the epicenter of this global financial turmoil. Any talk of legitimate risk of default for the pound must coincide with a serious analysis of the chances for the same occuring in the USD. I wish with every ounce of my being that we were not in the situation in which we presently find ourselves, but unfortunately, Fools, all the hoping in the world won't create strength for the USD where there is none.   [more]

Paper is paper is paper.

January 09, 2009 – Comments (12)

Based upon the steady increase in notices for physical delivery from the COMEX gold warehouse, anecdotal reports of futures contract redeemers being drilled repeatedly about why they are taking physical delivery, anamolies in gold futures like the backwardation condition noted weeks ago, the real disparity in value between paper gold assets and physical gold assets looks set to increase further... threatening the very structure of the bullion proxy systems. Through all the uncertainty, though, I believe CEF still offers a safer alternative to the ETFs, gold certificates, or any other form of paper gold / silver asset.   [more]
