This video of a CNBC segment hosted by Dylan Ratigan on 7/24, with Elliot Spitzer as a guest, is truly remarkable both for the simplicity with which the monetary dilemma is exposed, and the unbridled honesty with which Spitzer and Ratigan lay down the blunt reality of the situation.   [more]

Sinchi's Collected Works

July 16, 2009 – Comments (16)

The time has come for another list of links to my recent Fool articles. While each article is conceived as a stand-alone piece, I believe that my investigative style makes them work best as a compendium. I've always been a big picture guy, and in my financial research I'm constantly looking for patterns among the reams of information I sift through on a daily basis. As patterns become corroborated elsewhere, they evolve into working hypotheses in motion that I believe are of value to Foolish readers. I hope you agree.  [more]



Peter Schiff OWNS Dennis Kneale!

July 14, 2009 – Comments (17)

Combatting Kneale's weak attempt to characterize anyone who dares to stray from rosy outlooks of swift American economic recovery as self-interested doomsayers, Peter Schiff continues to do what he does best ... delivering his honest and non-sugar-coated appraisal of the state of the economy and the structural weakness that has been exacerbated by government responses rather than ameliorated by them.   [more]

When banks refuse to honor checks!

July 10, 2009 – Comments (30) | RELATED TICKERS: BAC , JPM

Last week, I was standing in line at a Bank of America branch, and observed with consternation an exchange between a man trying to cash his paycheck and the bank teller. The man was latino, creating somewhat of a language barrier, but that wasn't the problem. Being fluent in Spanish, I offered my services in translating for him, and was astonished to find that the teller wished me to explain that an $8 charge was being levied against his check for the right to cash it.   [more]

Foolish Traders Versus 21st Century Supercomputers

July 06, 2009 – Comments (50)

So, you still don't think your equity markets are manipulated? Still don't believe that some offshoot of the President's Working Group on Financial Markets is engaged in buying and selling equities to hold the line at key technical levels or to bolster and sustain runaway rallies? Fine ... you'd be correct to state that direct evidence of those kinds of activities are still lacking for the broader markets (in precious metals orchestrated manipulation by a handfull of bullion banks has been well documented).  [more]
