Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) Dangers

The U.S. government is desperately struggling to stabilize the economy and keep Central and Foreign Banks confident in order to access hundreds of billions of dollars lest global currency reserve diversification occur. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) dangers are many.

Global currency reserves typically have been in U.S. dollars to lower transaction costs, but with the Euro now being used in 37% of all international transactions, Central Banks in Asia, Russia, and the Middle East are diversifying their portfolios and moving away from the unstable and vulnerable U.S. dollar seeking more attractive and secure investments to secure their national economies.

Americans should therefore buy gold, Euros, or Chinese yuan to protect their hard earned savings and investments.

The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) provides up to $700 billion to the Secretary of the Treasury to buy mortgages and other “toxic” assets that are clogging the balance sheets of financial institutions and making it difficult for Wall Street, working families, small businesses, and other companies to access credit.

Accessing credit is imperative to the U.S. economy which owes $10 trillion in debt to overseas Central and Foreign Banks. In order for the near bankrupt U.S. economy which is steadily sinking, foreign oil addicted, and heavily dependent upon global militarization to persuade OPEC to continue to sell oil worldwide in dollars, ongoing hundreds of billions of dollars from afar is desperately needed.

The EESA is a program committed to printing and borrowing more dollars (ironically from foreign nations abroad) to insure troubled assets related to unprecedented amounts of homeowner and real estate foreclosures. These unwanted defaulted loans, often referred to by the U.S. government as “assets” are nothing of the sort.

Hence the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is a governmental plan to remove illiquid assets (a.k.a. defaulted real estate loans) that are unwanted and weighing down our financial institutions and threatening our economy. These toxic assets will be purchased and most likely not repaid to we the American taxpayers bearing the burden.

Before the U.S. greenback has a heart attack and the dollar dies, Americans should buy gold, Euros, or Chinese yuan to protect their hard earned savings and investments.

IMF warns of financial meltdown – Eurozone Strengthens, U.S. Dollar Weakens

The IMF warns that the global financial system is on the brink of a massive meltdown, while France and Germany push ahead with a pan-European crisis response to try to prevent the worst global downturn in decades.

What can one do in such perilous times other than buy gold and invest your savings in Euros before the dollar becomes obsolete.

At a joint news conference, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel said they had “prepared a certain number of decisions” to present at a Sunday meeting of European leaders as they work feverishly to restore blocked credit markets to working order.

International Monetary Fund stressed that time was running short after leading industrialized nations failed to agree on concrete measures to end the crisis at a meeting on Friday.

“Intensifying solvency concerns about a number of the largest U.S.-based and European financial institutions have pushed the global financial system to the brink of systemic meltdown,” IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said.

Low levels of confidence in America’s financial system has caused widespread panic to swiftly sweep through global markets, driving stocks to a five-year low on Friday and prompting banks to protectively hoard cash. That has devastatingly choked off lending to businesses and households, threatening to turn a global economic recession into a dangerously deep depression for perhaps years. Many across America are losing their homes, as is now the case in Australia.

An emergency meeting of euro zone leaders on Sunday will discuss a bank rescue package, taking a British initiative to guarantee lending between banks as a reference point, a source close to the French presidency said.

France’s Sarkozy said euro zone countries were working on a joint solution, but declined to provide specifics. He planned to meet with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown shortly before Sunday’s euro zone gathering.

 

Britain’s rescue plan, launched last week, makes available 50 billion pounds ($86 billion) of taxpayers’ money for injection into its banks and, crucially, calls for underwriting interbank lending, which has all but frozen around the globe.

The world’s richest nations vowed on Friday to take all necessary steps to unfreeze credit markets and ensure banks can raise money but they offered no real specifics on a collective course of action to avert the recession threat. Hence can anyone be sure when so much is promised, but so little usually done in America?

In a surprisingly brief statement after a 3-1/2 hour meeting, the G7 — the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan — stopped short of backing the British interbank lending guarantee, something many on Wall Street saw as vital to end growing market panic.

Kenneth Rogoff, a Harvard University professor and former IMF chief economist, said the G7 would have been better served adopting some version of the British plan so that banks would feel confident enough to loosen their grip on lending.

“Saying that they’ll take all steps necessary leaves hanging the question of whether they know what is best and necessary,” he told Reuters. “It was a signature moment for the G7. I think markets are going to be very disappointed.”

European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said markets needed time to digest a series of dramatic steps taken by world central banks in recent days, including pouring billions of dollars into financial markets and lowering interest rates in the broadest coordinated cut on record.

There are signs the U.S. economy is credit-starved and deteriorating fast. American auto makers have been hammered by the credit crunch. GM and Chrysler, two struggling auto makers, are considering a merger to secure cash and cut expenses.

Financial weekly Barron’s reported that GM was preparing to approach the U.S. Federal Reserve about borrowing money directly from the central bank. Many wonder just how many companies and banks the central bank in the United States can bail out before going bankrupt itself?

Some speculate the FDIC insuring American banks deposits will declare bankruptcy next.

What can one do in such perilous times other than buy gold and invest your savings in Euros before the dollar becomes obsolete.

G7 Finance Ministers and Central Banks Governors Coordinate, Collaborate, and Consolidate

G7 Finance Ministers and Central Banks Governors set to coordinate, collaborate, and consolidate to survive global financial turmoil. U.S. Treasury and Central Bank prepare for global integration and inflation of the dollar as it prints more currency.

As U.S. credit markets deathly tighten to an economic standstill, the European Central Bank (ECB) is committed to prevent and thwart any inflation of the Euro. Meanwhile the ECB is showing the U.S. some temporary charity by providing between USD 40 and 50 billion in overnight operations, USD 40 billion in 28-day operations, USD 20 billion in each one of the 84-day operations and USD 20 billion in each one of the forward US dollar operations.

 

Nevertheless the ECB is retaining flexibility to react to changing market conditions to protect itself from U.S. hegemony and economic stupidity.

 

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter blasted President Bush for his foolish economic policies causing $1 trillion indebtedness to China. The atrocious economic policies of the Bush administration has caused the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Profligate spending, massive borrowing and dramatic tax cuts since President George W. Bush took office in 2001 are fully behind the market turmoil and economic crisis.

 

The economic situation is an entrenched problem, which is going to take years to correct what has been done economically. Eight years ago, the United States had a budget surplus, low inflation and a stable, strong economy. However deregulation and withdrawal of supervision on Wall Street has encouraged irresponsibility in the U.S. financial system, enabling banks to borrow 30 times their value.

 

The G-7 have their hands full as they try to help the U.S. economy that has yet to guaranty interbank loans. If a national government does not insure and believe in its own banking system, how can its people have any degree of confidence?

Finance ministers from the world’s top economies posed for pictures and pledged Friday to work together to stabilize global financial markets, but did not provide concrete plans to address the credit chaos sweeping the world.

 

The G-7 agrees that the current situation calls for urgent and exceptional action. Although they commit to continue working together to stabilize financial markets and restore the flow of credit, to support global economic growth, nobody has been transparent enough to tell us how.

 

Paulson emphasized collaboration and coordination, which signals eventual consolidation as Pres. Bush has for the past 8 years given U.S. debt to foreign nations. Paulson himself has previously prepared American citizens in talks about more financial institutions failing.

 

General Motors plummeted to a third of its original value with credit markets freezing up.

The so called assets in the failing mortgage industry are toxic and dafaulted assets at best, which few want.

 

The finance ministers have their work cut out for them. They surely must announce concrete steps by the end of the weekend if they want to soothe the roiling markets. The stock markets throughout the world are not responding to cheap talk and press hype. We need to see real action. Any thing less tells me central banks are conspiring to consolidate and devalue national currencies so as to usher in a new world order.

 

The Dow Jones industrial average fell over 1,874 points, or 18%, in its worst weekly decline ever on both a point and percentage basis. Wall Street lost roughly $2.4 trillion in market value during the week.

 

Markets worldwide fared no better, with every major exchang losing. Black Friday as it was called in Australia caused stock markets to take an 8% nosedive adding to a 42% drop in a year within the Aussie market. The Japanse stocket market has lost 53% this year thus far. Russia’s index has fallen 61% as investors pull out money and flee for cover. The UK’s top companies have fallen 21%.  Germany’s market fell 7% and 28% on the week.

 

There is no containing the deepening global financial crisis. Central Banks and the Federal Reserve coordinated interest rate cuts did not soothe nervous investors.

The Fed lowered its benchmark interest rate by a half-point to 1.5%. The European Central Bank, which had kept rates unchanged as the Fed engaged in a string of rate cuts over the last year, cut its rate by a half-point to 3.75% – its first cut in five years. The Bank of England also cut its rate by a half-point to 4.5%. The Swiss, Canadian and Swedish central banks also made cuts. Yet the Libor rate rose disproportionately eliminating the usefulness of any cuts as indicated in the markets which failed to respond.

 

The Dutch and Belgian governments took over Fortis, before selling pieces of it to BNP Paribas. The British are nationalizing mortgage lender Bradford & Bingley.

And some nations, including Ireland, France and Germany, have said that all bank deposits will be insured by their governments for the time being.

 

Afraid to insure their own bank deposits to the full the United States and United Kingdom are developing plans to inject capital into banks, which would entail acquiring stakes in the institutions.

 

Some speculate the G-7 countries can work through this crisis by dealing with bad assets, recapitalizing banks, and providing much needed liquidity. Other economists predict it will take up to 2 years to fully work through the economic problems created over the past 8 years. Fixing the financial, regulatory, and supervisory system that failed will take time and not be done overnight.

 

Each country, of course, will have to take steps to address its particular problems.

U.S. Treasury Paulson himself mentioned that the press and some markets are naive to think that different countries with different financial systems – and different political systems, different laws – are going to come up with precisely the same policy to deal with the issues.

 

That being said, I am betting on the European Central Bank where China, Russia, Iran, OPEC, Dubai, and other major global financial players are putting their assets and foreign currency reserves. When China who holds $1 trillion in U.S. debt begins to diversify after the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco, look for chaos to surface and devastate U.S. markets and plunge the dollar to the basement.

 

Billionaires George Soros, Warren Buffet, and American hedge fund manager John Paulson are betting against the dollar. I’m putting my money therefore in gold or Euros.

Bernanke’s fiscal policy speech to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) on July 8, 2008 calling the U.S. economy in “turmoil” was quite revealing. Meanwhile Bernanke and Paulson reported to the media and American people the economy was fundamentally strong.

 

Bernanke told the BIS in July, 2008 it is “Unrealistic to think financial crisis can be eliminated”.

 

The euro was used in around 37% of all foreign exchange transactions in April, 2007.

Libor Rate Indicates a Dying Dollar and Sketchy U.S. Treasury

The LIBOR is among the most common of benchmark interest rate indexes used to make adjustments to adjustable rate mortgages.

Watch out for choking credit markets, as the financial crisis spreads from the U.S. to European stock markets causing a domino effect throughout the financial world.

Over the weekend, Germany implemented a bailout of its own, injecting €50 billion to help out struggling Hypo Real Estate bank, the nation’s Financy Ministry said.

Nevertheless as banks in Europe struggle, the European Central Bank has maintained its key lending rate. That tells me the Euro will be the strongest currency in the world and the one to invest in.

If you like gold for asset protection – play it safe here.   http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

The 3-month Libor rate seems to be getting higher as the global credit crunch tightens on national banks throughout the world.

Reform of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac – Homeownership & Equity Protection Act

  1.  

    1. After 12 years of Republican control, the Republicans failed to enact meaningful reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
  2.  

    1. In 1994 the Democratic Congress passed the Home Ownership & Equity Protection Act (HOEPA).
  3. The Truth versus the Republicans on the Regulation of Subprime Mortgages and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

    The Homeownership & Equity Protection Act

    1. That law included a host of consumer protections for high-cost mortgages and specifically required that the Federal Reserve issue rules to stop abusive lending practices.
    1. During the 12 years of Republican control – which included the subprime housing bubble at the heart of our current economic crisis – no regulation was ever enacted under that authority.
    1. Former Fed Chairman Greenspan was asked numerous times to issue rules (including internally by Former Governor Ed Gramlich) but refused on ideological grounds.
    1. Republican ideologues have long thwarted mortgage and consumer protection.
    1. Only after the Democrats took control of the Congress and initiated specific legislative reforms (H.R. 3915) did Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke finally issue regulations under the very authority they have had since 1994.

FDIC Over Extension and Bankruptcy – 100 Banks Expected to Fail

Will the FDIC will insure your bank savings account?

Suppose the FDIC like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae goes bankrupt? The FDIC has $48 billion in assets, but insures $3 trillion in deposits. The FDIC projects 100 bank failures costing $800 billion.

Put your money in Euros or gold!

The death of the U.S. dollar is imminent. Before the greenback has its final heart attack, get ahead of the next catastrophe on Wall Street.

Don’t be deceived by the lying media owned by multi-national corporations. Wall Street insiders will paint a rosy picture while they tycoons walk away with the loot. Awake and take immediate action before your savings disappears overnight.

Your bank accounts are insured unless there is a banking crisis. Then you must be prepared for the worst.

The greatest threat is a gridlock in the payments system – like many consumers face paying their own monthly debts. When bank A cannot pay bank B at the end of the day because bank C has not paid bank A…defaults within the banking industry, leading to corporate bankruptcies occur.

How long would your local ATM have money inside under this scenario? Not long I suspect as is the case with Washington Mutual when consumers made a run on the bank recently as it neared bankruptcy before being bought by J.P. Morgan at the last minute.

Such a national catastrophe came close in the summer of 1998, when the hedge fund, Long Term Capital Management, almost went bankrupt. The New York Federal Reserve Bank intervened.

Times of intense uncertainty should not take you unawares. Be prepared and protect your savings and investments by putting them in Euros or gold lest they vanish overnight.

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) reported that the United States Mint has suspended sales of American Eagle gold coins to their network of Authorized Purchasers.

The U.S. Mint has halted sales of its American Eagle and American Buffalo 24-carat gold one-ounce bullion coins because “inventories have been depleted,” the Mint said.

The coins which sold for $800 can’t keep up with demand from panicky investors looking for something — anything — that seems safe during the current crisis.

The price of gold has risen in recent weeks, topping $920 per ounce as concerns rise over the passage of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout and subsequent fears about a further stock market drop.

The Mint has sold 164,000 24-carat gold coins this year, which is nearly 30,000 more than during all of 2007.
