Fed Protest Occupy Wall St. Goes Nationwide

Heralding A Redress of Grievances

In the sparse coverage of the „Occupy Wall St.“ protests by the lame stream media, they have been trying to marginalize and even dismiss the protests as small, unorganized, and lacking a singular focus.
But they’re wrong.
The protests are growing.
The protests are spreading.
And they do have a singular purpose; to end the banking cartel’s hold on Washington…

Why Germany seems not to want a quick fix for the euro crisis

TO HEAR Germany say no to fiscal stimulus, no to boosting the euro zone’s rescue fund, no to joint Eurobonds, one begins to wonder: does it really want to resolve the euro zone’s crisis? Of course we do, most Germans would reply. Is not the chancellor, Angela Merkel, the first to declare that “if the euro fails, Europe will fail”? Is Germany not the main provider of rescue loans to Greece, Ireland and Portugal?

All this is true. Yet Mrs Merkel seems to lack a sense of urgency. Despite the world’s calls for action, she does not believe in bold strokes—be it letting Greece default, or issuing Eurobonds to mutualise governments’ debt. Only a slow, step-by-step approach will work. In other words, the pain, austerity and market turmoil will go on for the foreseeable future. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

European Crisis: Precise Solutions in an Imprecise Reality

Posted by hkarner - 4. Oktober 2011

Stratfor, Created Oct 4 2011 – 03:53

By George Friedman

An important disconnect over the discussion of the future of the European Union exists, one that divides into three parts. First, there is the question of whether the various plans put forward in Europe plausibly could result in success given the premises they are based on. Second, there is the question of whether the premises are realistic. And third, assuming they are realistic and the plans are in fact implemented, there is the question of whether they can save the European Union as it currently exists.

The plans all are financial solutions to a particular set of financial problems. But regardless of whether they are realistic in addressing the financial problem, the question of whether the financial issue really addresses the fundamental dilemma of Europe — which is political and geopolitical — remains.

Tough Choices, Big Opportunities

Tough Choices, Big Opportunities

As noted above, I had the privilege of finally meeting Kate Welling, who writes the famous (in the financial world) Welling@Weeden letter, in which she highlights interviews and commentary from many of the financial world’s luminaries. I must confess, getting time with her has been on my list of „want to’s“ for a very long time, and we did finally meet this summer in Maine, thanks to David Kotok. Her interviews are simply the best, but are hard for most investors to access, as they are aimed at institutional clients.

Now here’s my interview.


The Endgame

John Mauldin Sees Opportunities Aplenty, But Hard Choices First

John Mauldin, best-selling author and omnipresent e-presence, needs no introduction, so I won’t get in the way. The president of Millennium Wave Investments very generously spent some quality after-breakfast time with me on a deck on the shore of a gloriously remote Maine lake, right after S&P downgraded the U.S., and this is how the conversation went. Listen in.


So what’s the next step in the end game, now that we’ve seen S&P downgrade the U.S.? Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
