Talk me down. Why the U.S. Economy Is Going to Get Much Worse

October 31, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: AUY , GLD

The derivatives market is worth more than $516 trillion, roughly 10 times the value of the entire world's output: it's been called the "ticking time-bomb." Unsurprisingly, this news comes to us from Britain; the U.S. media is not going to mention it.  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/10/28/why-the-u-s-economy-is-going-to-get-much-worse.aspx  I wish I had this news before the market closed.   [more]

To the board. I would just like to give you my view here on the bottom. LETS SEE. pay 1998. 6.50 hour and gas was 78 cents a gallon and milk was 1.59 a gallon and bread was 55 cents a loaf. Rent was 325.00 month and health care was 7.50 a week with my corporation paying the majority with the government reimbursing them for offering them that.  FAST FORWARD 10 years. pay 10.50 an hour. GAS 3.00 a gallon going to just under 3.50 this summer. Milk 4.25 gal. Bread 2.50 loaf and going up.Came into a house 10 years ago and it was 80,000.00 now values at 160,000.00. Taxes 10 years went from 2,000.00 year to 4,000.00 a year now. Thank god I have the house. Went back to apartment to see what Rent is and it is now 800.00 month. HEALTH CARE 15.75 a week. This is the stagflation I heard you talking about. If you are earning 20 million a year then inflation only went up 10% in ten years and my inflation went up 200% in 10 years. AND THAT IS the STAGFLATION THAT IS NOW AFFECTING NOT ONLY THE WORKING POOR BUT NOW THE MIDDLE CLASS. At the FED you AVERAGE'S THE ENTIRE PAY FOR THE COUNTRY AND THEN THE ENTIRE RAISING COST AND AVERAGES IT OUT THUS WE GET 10% INFLATION RATE FOR THE YEAR MORE OR LESS. WHAT I  DO IS AVERAGE THE INFLATION TO JUST THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE WORKING POOR AND GET A MORE ACCURATE READING OF THE ECCOMONY.Does anyone realize if we had indexed min. wage to yearly inflation it should be about 20.00 an hour? This is why these recessions cycle about every 20 years. President Bush could become the national Hero if he acted this month and have someone in the republican congress to submit a bill to congress to get the permanent tax cuts through congress by just bitting the bullet and craft a bill to state that permanent tax cuts to min. wage to 4.00 an hour effective in one month with a 2.00 a year increase until it reaches what min wage should be indexed to inflation. Then tie min wage to a yearly increase to its inflation ( middle and lower class ). This way the corporations can keep and invest most of their money and yet the hard working people who keep the corporations running will be able to afford to buy products from the corporations. If we want to keep a quality of live then we need the wages. I know corporations say the labor will be to high but with the savings they will receive from taxes will more than exceed what they pay out for wages.This way we bypass the government and the free market will heal its self. We can no longer sight other country's labor because we can't compete with 3.00 a day and retain our life style. Why don't we give a hand up to those country's and in free trade and raise their pay gradually towards our pay? This way as they have more to spend we will have more to sell them. I know all of you know this and I just wanted to give you my take on this mess.Now I have been seeing it in the middle class for 2 years.I know you are dealing with much more but maybe this will help.                                                           Thank you for your reply. Let me give you a few more facts. I know that you have a lot going on. Talk to the CEO's of this country and ask them to take a 75% pay cut and pass that on to the employees who are making under 40.00 an hour. This is the only way to keep us from a Depression. This is from the labor department. I am just a Bookseller but I know what you and the country are facing. The economy is so much bigger than during the crash. The figures don't lie.ileagle workers are leaving the country because they can't find work and I know that is so so bad when that happens.http://www.dol.gov/ Now the same 20k in 1970 would need to be $42,474.23 in 1980 $67,371.13 in 1990 and $88,762.89 in 2000 now and $112,791.24 in just the first half of 2008 not even the whole year.That is just not happening to peoples pay check. The rate to just break even is so vast 20k compared to 112k . May God Bless all of you because I know what will happen if the dollar does not get stronger.

Subject: Response to your e-mail concerning: Board Members 
 
Dear Ms. Quadland: 
 
Thank you for your most recent correspondence in which you expressed your concern about price inflation and interest rates, and suggested that the Federal Reserve should increase the current level of interest rates. We appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with us and want to assure you that the concerns you have expressed are not simply ignored. 
 
The public frequently makes suggestions on the direction our economy should take, as you did in your correspondence. In addition, the Federal Reserve receives and evaluates a mass of data, including information as you have supplied, in attempting to arrive at a balanced and realistic assessment of how the economy is functioning. While we value the observations and recommendations of private citizens, in conducting monetary policy, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) must pay attention to guides for monetary policy as specified in the Federal Reserve Act. 
 
With regard to your comments about interest rates, regardless of what one thinks interest rates should be, the rates that actually prevail are determined by a number of forces, and not by Federal Reserve actions alone. The Federal Reserve has considerable influence over some short-term interest rates, such as the federal funds rate. But the Federal Reserve has less control over other short-term rates, and long-term rates often respond to Federal Reserve's actions with considerable delay, i.e. the effect is indirect. Further, the FOMC does assess the impact that changes in interest rates will have on particular sectors of the economy. The goal of monetary policy, however, is to foster conditions conducive to sustaining sound, noninflationary economic growth over time and policymakers must make decisions that provide the greatest benefit to the economy overall. 
 
Again, thank you for writing. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
JPD

Who will decide the One world currency and the now monetary system is a very bad idea? Who gave them this Idea? The thieving World Wide Government's IMF's and central banks, that's who. The G20 through the World Bank did. They did such a good job of outing themselves it was fantastic to watch. Not in a million years could we have exposed them all and because of their greed and arrogance they did it to themselves.As a United States citizen am deeply ashamed of the way our banking system and government has acted from the time it was set up. I am also sorry for the way the rest of the world's banking system's has acted from the time it was set up. At the same time I am placing a bet on the other country's to pull out first and see that Ron Paul and many other people world wide were right. I will even bet that the Pope will come out and say the banking system we have now is not fair to the poor and that the Pope calls for a whole new monetary system. I bet that he will call for each country to open up the press to talk freely and openly about the way we want to reform our banking system. I bet he will call upon each country to form their own currency backed by gold or silver.After all he has a world wide responsibly to the people of his church to denounce all people who steal,bear false witness,covet his neighbors property, and any of the 10 commandants that they have broken.I just wonder if it will be Russia or China or some other country.

No relief for homeowners just the banks. Lied to again.

Treasury 'hopes to drive consolidation' through banks plan
The Treasury Department is looking to use its $250 billion recapitalization package for the US banking sector to not only stabilize the industry, but fundamentally reshape it by "driving consolidation", it has been claimed.

Government officials told the New York Times that the department is looking to direct funds allocated to the country's ailing banks towards institutions willing to buy up rivals wounded by the credit crisis.

They added that the Treasury will gear selection criteria for the rescue program towards banks that need capital for new acquisitions, as it does not want to "prop up" weak institutions.

Since the financial crisis took hold, there has been a flurry of takeovers, with national players like the Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo snapping up troubled competitors.

Now the Treasury hopes its injection of capital will help the smaller "super regional" banks to drive another round of takeovers.

Meanwhile, Treasury secretary Henry Paulson said he expects "all participating banks" in the federal program to "continue to strengthen their efforts to help struggling homeowners".

So far, nine banks are involved in the government's recapitalization plan - Citigroup (Nasdaq: PLJC), Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch (Nasdaq: LNDU), Morgan Stanley (Nasdaq: MNDX), State Street, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of New York Mellon, Wells Fargo and the Bank of America.
 
ING secures government 'bailout' package
ING, one of the world's top 20 financial institutions, has become the latest firm to secure a 'bailout' capital boost with a national government after the Dutch state agreed to reinforce its position in a deal worth €10 billion ($13.5 billion).

Under the agreement, ING will issue one billion non-voting Tier-1 securities to the government for €10 apiece. It can buy back some or all of these securities at any time for 150 percent of the issue price.

After three years, the company can also convert any or all of the securities into ordinary shares. If it decides to do this, the government can ask for the securities to be paid back at €10 each.

As part of the agreement, the state will nominate two members to sit on ING's board. The group's remuneration policy will also be reviewed to ensure it is not encouraging short-term risk taking.

The banking group's chief executive officer, Michel Tilmant, said its capital position is in line with business plans and regulatory requirements, but that current market conditions make it "prudent to raise our core capital".

ING has 75 million customers worldwide, with offices in Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia and Australia.  [more]

US banking effectively monopolized
Fri, 24 Oct 2008 02:17:10 GMT
Paul Craig Roberts Economist Paul Craig Roberts says the US bailout has created an economic monopoly, as only four banks now own all other banks in the US.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, Roberts stated that the bailout has also created a concentration of wealth in the US economy.

When asked if US is turning into socialism, Roberts responded that this bailout is more like state capitalism and then went on to compare that to fascism.

Eastern European economies face bankruptcy. Thank you powers Now back the money by Gold.

October 25, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AUY , GLD

Niall Green Global Research October 24, 2008 The economies of central and eastern Europe are being rocked by the crisis of world capitalism, compounded by the corrupt and pro-big business policies of their local elites. Defying many economists and commentators, who had forecast that the region would be well placed to deal with the credit crisis due to the lower relative weight of finance capital within their national economies, much of Eastern Europe stands on the verge of insolvency and deep and protracted recession. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Stalinist states, central and eastern Europe provided global capitalism with vast new sources of cheap labour and raw materials. In the early 1990s the recession affecting the Western economies, accelerated the flow of capital into the former-Soviet countries, with transnational corporations seeking to cut costs by outsourcing to this newly opened-up low tax, cheap labour areas. Major global manufacturers such as General Motors, Volkswagen and Nokia invested hundreds of millions of dollars into new factories, taking advantage of the large pools of highly-skilled and educated workers, many of whom had lost jobs in the old state-owned industries that were closed following the restoration of capitalism. Western financial institutions profited from financing the development of new industrial plants, as well as property speculation among the new bourgeois elite and foreign investors in major urban areas like Prague, Warsaw and Bratislava. Business consultancy, Capital Economics, reports that 17 years after the restoration of capitalism and four years after most joined the European Union (EU), wages in the eastern EU states are still only one fifth of the average of those in Western Europe. An estimated five million workers have left the eastern European countries for Western Europe between 2004 and 2007. The mass migration from the ex-Soviet states has left key sectors of the economy and public services such as healthcare critically short of skilled workers. Poland and Ukraine almost had to abandon their status as co-hosts of the 2012 European Football Championship due to the chronic shortages of labour needed to renew facilities for the competition. Only a few months ago, a recession in Western Europe was viewed as a potential boon to overheated Eastern Europe economies. Inflation, running at 15 percent in Russia and Latvia, seemed to be the greatest threat. However, as the full impact of the global crisis unfolds, the alleged ability of Eastern Europe to weather the storm relatively better than its Western counterparts has been thrown into question. All the economies of the eastern European region are highly dependent on credit from the international markets. The Institute of International Finance has estimated that total private capital and credit flows into eastern Europe, the former USSR and Turkey, are likely to fall from nearly $400 billion in 2007 to an estimated $262 billion next year, a figure which may fall even further as it is based on optimistic forecasts of the effectiveness of the international governmental bailouts of the banks. Erik Berglof, chief economist of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, stated that the eastern European countries, “could deal with rising borrowing costs and an economic slowdown coming from the US and Western Europe, but a complete shutdown of international borrowing—nobody can withstand that.” The International Monetary Fund forecasts a fall in the growth rate for gross domestic product (GDP) for central and southeast Europe from 5 percent this year to 3.5 percent in 2009. For Russia and the former Soviet Union, it predicts growth of around 7 percent for this year and 5.5 percent for 2009. Emergency bailout for Hungary Even these figures fail to show the full impact of the economic crisis on countries whose economies are heavily dependent on exports to the wealthier western EU. The impact of a recession in France, Germany and Britain will be acutely painful to the eastern economies of Europe. The Czech Republic, for example, relies on exports to the wealthier euro currency zone for 40 percent of its GDP. As the British magazine, the Economist, stated, “If Germany gets a headache, eastern Europe gets a migraine.” On October 16, the same day countries across the EU pledged to shore up the banking system with a package whose total could exceed €2 trillion, the European Central Bank (ECB) granted Hungary a bailout worth €5 billion, saving its economy from a financial meltdown. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is poised to offer the country a further, and probably much larger, bailout loan. Last week, Hungary put tight controls on foreign exchange lending in an effort to stabilise the country’s troubled financial sector. This prompted a massive drop in the value of the Hungarian currency and stock market, quickly followed by sharp rises on the news of the ECB bailout. Hungary has a very high level of foreign public debt—60 percent of GDP—meaning that the country is less attractive to foreign investors and less creditworthy to private and international lenders. Global credit ratings agencies Fitch and Standard and Poor’s have lowered Hungary’s rating to BBB+ , the third lowest investment grade offered to any country. In addition, many ordinary citizens and local firms have loans with Hungarian banks that have been packaged in complex schemes based on the speculation that the Hungarian forint would stay on the same exchange rate as the euro. That situation is likely to change as Hungary’s high budget and current account deficits pressure the devaluation of its currency, which is now trading at a two-year low, further destabilising its banking system. The government of Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany has reduced its official GDP growth forecast for 2009 from three percent to just 1.2 percent, and has acknowledged it is planning a budget based on a zero percent growth rate next year. The Hungarian government has pledged to cut its budget deficit, meaning that public services spending and wages will be driven down. Nick Chamie, of RBC Capital Markets, has warned that much of eastern Europe is ill-equipped to bail out the financial system and may suffer the same fate as Iceland, whose financial system has seized-up with the collapse of its three major banks. “The three Baltic states along with Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria and Romania—and of course Iceland—are top of the list,” of those vulnerable to an investment exodus, Chamie warned. Baltic states in crisis Latvia and Estonia are officially the first economies in the eastern EU to fall into recession. Lithuania, whose growth has been slower than its Baltic neighbours, is likely to officially enter a recession in early 2009 and has been forced to guarantee the deposits of savers up to the value of €100,000, double the average EU guaranteed amount. The Lithuanian prime minister was forced to appeal for calm in early October, stating that “There is no danger for any Lithuanian bank to go bankrupt. We monitor the situation constantly.” The country’s banking sector is dominated by the Swedish bank SEB. The heads of government of all three Baltic states issued statements October 10 insisting that their countries were not headed for insolvency. “It is impossible to compare Lithuania with Iceland,” Prime Minister Gediminas Kirkilas told a joint news conference with his Latvian counterpart. Reinhard Cluse, “emerging Europe” economist for Switzerland’s UBS bank, was more cautious, stating in response to the financial situation in the Baltic states: “Iceland was a special case, but the same rising waters that flooded Iceland first are a problem for others, too.”

The Heron's Latest Catch
Hit and miss with Afghan air strikes

By: Gareth Porter - Asia Times
Date: 23-10-2008

WASHINGTON - The present United States policy in Afghanistan of
using air strikes to target local Taliban leaders was rejected by the
top US commander in Afghanistan in early 2004 as certain to turn the
broader population against the US presence.
Lieutenant General David Barno, the three-star general who commanded
the Combined Forces Command-Afghanistan, the overall US and coalition
command for Afghanistan from October 2003 to mid-2005, recalled in an
interview that he had ordered that such air strikes be halted in
Afghanistan in early 2004. He said the decision did not prohibit air
strikes for close support of US troops in contact with the Taliban.
Barno, now retired from the army and director of the Near East South Asia Center
for Strategic Studies at the National Defense
University, said he decided to stop the use of pre-targeted air strikes
in early 2004 because the civilian casualties they caused were eroding
the tolerance of the Afghan population for US military presence in the
country.
"I felt that civilian casualties were strategically decoupling us
from our objective," said Barno. "It caused blowback that undermined
our cause."

To my friend Debbie. You are in a much better place.

October 23, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: DOW , MON , DNDNQ

The last 5 years have been very hard on my friend. She had asthma. To treat the asthma they gave her a new drug to treat it. With a very depressed immune system she trusted the doctors and hospital staff. All went well for 6 mos. then a very funny (not) thing happened. She developed a form of TB and then had to be treated for it. A year later it was deemed cured. We started doing some research on the drugs she was given and found many disturbing warnings.( I don't have the names but you can find in the warnings of many possible side affects in any PDR and drug warning labels.) Several of the medications given for the asthma one of the side effects where it might cause TB and cancer and other problems. After she was treated for the TB one of the side effects of those medicines was it might cause cancer in patients. (noticed cancer both times.) We all were very concerned and she went and talked to her many doctors. They all assured her that it was a concern but the risk was small and at the time that was the best way to treat her at the time given the knowledge at the time for her asthma. A complete screening was done and only her asthma was now the problem. Come back in 6 mos. and we will recheck you. If you have any problems go back to your regular doctor. She did. Asthma flare ups and sinus infections. When she went back for her 6 mo. check up low and behold she was told she had stage 4 lung cancer and that they will try and treat it but to get her affairs in order because the success rate is about nil at this time but there is hope because researcher's are finding new cures all the time. In 6 mos she went from ok to stage 4 cancer. She lost the fight 3 days ago. My neighbor who had her child vaccinated almost lost her first child and now he is being treated for Atusim. Her second child was vaccinated with a chemical free and responsible vaccine that doesn't have all the junk in them and for very few problems like polio and a few others. Her second son is fine and very healthy. The cost in these 2 families is enormous not to mention the total cost for health care insurance and education alone. So in the future when you hear me go off the deep end and rant my little heart out you will understand and maybe it will help you to advoid the same problems with your family or friends.

The vaccine against bacterial meningitis is made from the brains and heart of cows among other highly toxic components. Alarmed by the outbreak of mad cow’s disease, the Italian authorities ordered the seizure of the vaccine in January 1997 for fear it could cause the human version of the disease. By injecting such cocktails of foreign and destructive substances directly into the bloodstream, the human body stands little or no chance of neutralizing the poisons.

Under normal circumstances, all ingested foods, beverages, etc. have to pass through the mucus membranes, the intestinal walls, or the liver before they are permitted into such important areas as the blood, the heart, or the brain. The sudden appearance of a poison in the bloodstream is often met by a counterattack of the immune system that uses an entire arsenal of antibodies to prevent death from poisoning (allergic reaction). This allergic response can lead to a sudden, sometimes fatal, collapse known as anaphylactic shock response. Among the causes of anaphylactic shock are immunizations for diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, and whooping cough. A young person’s immune system hasn't typically matured enough to be effective against this type of onslaught.  [more]

US seeks more military budget for war? Sun, 12 Oct 2008 19:19:28 GMT

October 14, 2008 – Comments (3)

US seeks more military budget for war? Sun, 12 Oct 2008 19:19:28 GMT The Pentagon has reportedly proposed a $450 billion increase in the military budget in a move believed to be in preparation for a war. The new military budget estimate for the next five years is expected to be revealed shortly before President George W. Bush leaves office in January 2009. The fiscal 2010 portion of the estimate includes a $57 billion increase, $30 billion of which would be allocated to a vaguely defined contingency fund and $14 billion would be used for replacing or repairing existing military equipment or 'reset and modernization'. The new budget numbers raise speculation about the likelihood of a new US military engagement as it highlights Defense Department fears that the already record-high military budgets would be grossly insufficient in the years ahead. Since taking office, the Bush administration has increased baseline military spending by 30 percent, which puts the annual military spending, at its highest level since World War II. While 'reset and modernization' funds in the proposal are relatively unlikely to arouse controversy, the $30 billion contingency fund could face fierce opposition. If approved, the contingency fund would help the rapid deployment of US forces overseas in the event of an unexpected crisis. The incoming administration would decide on the newly-proposed military budget and the large increase in overall defense funds. "This is a political document," said one former senior budget official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "It sets up the new administration immediately to have to make a decision of how to deal with the perception that they are either cutting defense or adding to it." The US presidential candidates differ on their policies regarding military issues. While Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama only supports the current planned increase of 92,000 Army and Marine Corps personnel, his Republican rival John McCain is pushing for an additional 150,000 troops to be paid for within the initially-introduced budget.
