The U.S. economy, as any astute financial observer has noted for years, is running on artificial wealth that has been manufactured by the Federal Reserve and swallowed by gullible consumers chasing that pot of gold at the end of the easy money rainbow. An alarmingly large percentage of U.S. economic activity is driven by consumer spending and the taxation of such activities. So when housing prices plummet and consumer bankruptcies start piling up, here’s what we’re going to see next.....Read the full story

I said three weeks ago that the big story for 2008 would be the counter-party risk for credit default swaps. That story is coming faster and larger than I thought. Bill Gross of Pimco suggests that the ultimate cost could be another $250 billion dollars on top of the $250-plus billion in subprime losses. That means we have only seen the tip of the iceberg in write-offs in the financial sector.....

December 24, 2007, Alec Blackhall "Slaves going cheap"
I have been reading about Sovereign wealth / investment funds buying up US companies at fire sale prices. With the deal, you also get free slaves to the system thrown in. (Basically the population of the US) It is a sad state of affairs with the layman on the street being the one that will eventually pay the price. The writings on the walls. Just look at the bonus that Goldman Sachs Group Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein received this year ($67.9 million). Come on, what for ? GS are behind the dollar dealing big time.

December 21, 2007, Alistair Barr / MarketWatch "That’s one of the largest executive bonuses in history"
Goldman Sachs Group Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein got a $67.9 million bonus for 2007, according to a regulatory filing by the investment bank Friday. The bonus includes $26.8 million in cash and restricted stock units worth $41.1 million, the filing said. Blankfein was the highest-paid executive at Goldman during the firm’s 2007 fiscal year. The filing also noted. "That’s one of the largest executive bonuses in the history of the universe," said Bill Coleman, senior vice president of compensation at"....

Alec Blackhall - 19th December, 2007...Put a tick in the box - "hey we (ECB) have just spun up 500 billion. That is $500,000,000,000 USD. thank you very much and have a great Xmas you peasants - now back to work"
It really isn’t liquidity though but rather a simple book entry on the ECB’s balance sheet. This has to be one of the biggest fiat scams this century to date !!!. Take Weimar Germany, circa 1923. As that country’s monetary problems worsened, the central bank (Reichsbank), in the delusional thinking of that day, printed one-half trillion of Reichsmarks. It also had the aim to provide liquidity. What happened next ? what you could buy a house would only get you a loaf of bread in the following months.

Welcome to the inflationist days. Central banks are pouring money in unprecedented amounts into markets reeling from an insolvency crisis that cannot be solved by throwing artificially created bills of credit onto a market while accepting dubious collateral.....After all what is a few hundred billions of Euros for all European banks when only the off-balance risk of the banking sector of tiny Austria reels under 2.1 trillion of derivatives risk while having equity of only 73 billion Euros, according to data compiled by Oesterreichische Nationalbank.....Read about this

December 18, 2007, James Turk "Print, Print, Print"
Let’s flash back to Weimar Germany in 1923. As that country’s monetary problems worsened, the central bank, the Reichsbank, in the misguided thinking of that day printed one-half trillion of Reichsmarks. It also had the aim to provide liquidity.
Is there anything essentially different between what the Reichsbank did and what the ECB just did? Absolutely not....

December 18, 2007, Mike Whitney "The collapse of the modern day banking system
"Most people have no idea how grave the present situation is or the disaster the world will face if trillions of dollars of over-leveraged bonds and equities begin to unwind".... One of Britain’s leading economists, Peter Spencer, issued a warning on Saturday: "The Government must suspend a set of key banking regulations at the heart of the current financial crisis or risk seeing the economy spiral towards a future that could make 1929 look like a walk in the park."

December 16th, 2007, Alec Blackhall "CDO’s SIV’s and now TAF’s What is happening in the backrooms? And what is a TAF?"
These little TAFs (Term Auction Facility) as they were promoted in the business news that Ben and the boys have spun up, will enable banks to get short term loans without going to the discount window so the whole world won’t know how screwed for cash they really are. Loans from the discount window are public. These TAF loans are supposed to be fully collateralized but if you read more (read this full commentary) to what constitutes collateral then you will see such little jewels as home mortgage loans and CDO’s count to the tune of 89% of their value. How much did these things fall in a single day last month? How much are they really worth?? About as much as the paper they are printed on.

This tracks closely with the amazing recovery in the US dollar in the last day or so as well. How is all this getting engineered? My guess is that it has something to do with this shady TAF deal that Ben and fed friends slipped through.

The Fed and US Treasury cannot let the precious metals perform their true economic function. In the past three months, the repeat of the first 3rd of December’s performance of the price of gold and silver during the NY COMEX has become so obvious as to be laughable. They no longer make any pretense whatsoever at subtlety in their blatant manipulations... and yet the metals rebound right back up again - over and over. The debt doctors just can’t allow gold to establish a floor over 800 and silver over 15. Or they will lose total control of the whole jerry rigged scam they have created. All they are doing is just throwing more petrol on the fire. Un-fortunately for them, this little ploy will eventually fail, as it has time and time again the past for other currencies. (And they know it - talk about sweat the debt!!) Read the rest here
