Rally to Begin for At Least Two Months

Franklin @ October 3, 2008 # One Comment

I mentioned before that there is no correlation between the markets and the economy. As matter of fact, when the Dow Jones was at 14,000 I wrote about how bad the economy actually was. It is easy to talk about a bad economy when things look bad, it is another story to do it when […]

The Timing of the "Liquidity Crisis"

Franklin @ September 28, 2008 # 3 Comments

This “liquidity crisis” was patent back in September of 2007. We then discussed whether it was a real liquidity crisis or confidence crisis, but that was just an academic exercise. The point is that what happened last week and prompted the President’ “There is nothing to fear… Fear!!! Panic!!! Oh my god we all are […]

Congress expected to pass financial rescue package: Financial News – Yahoo! Finance So, Wall Street put a gun to the head of the American public two months before the election and got what they wanted.

On The Wall Street Bailout

Franklin @ September 25, 2008 # No Comment Yet

I used to call it “The Reagan lobotomy.” The Reagan lobotomy was performed during a few years of high inflation, and the American people made a sacred commitment. “We will give up our rights as workers for the good of the country.” I covered the results of this agreement in other posts. Today, I will […]

The Terrible Plot of The American Economy

Franklin @ September 24, 2008 # One Comment

I am so bored with the latest installment of the movie The Big Scam. Not only we have seen it all too many times, but the casting is all wrong. I must admit that the casting of Paulson as the evil terrorist who threatens with the destruction of the American and world economies if he […]

Revisiting a post from May

Franklin @ September 22, 2008 # No Comment Yet

Back in May, when I wrote The Real Economy III: The People‚Äôs GDP some reader dared ignoring the data and saying something on the vein of “when I see something called “the people’s” I know it is going to be wrong”. I guess it was some of those who really thought the economy was sound, […]

What’s Happening to The Republic

Franklin @ September 22, 2008 # One Comment

Some days I regret not having done something. For instance, I regret not having titled one of my articles Fear and Looting in Wall Street. This was back in August of 2007, and I thought then that it was going to be seen as a will exaggeration. Fast forward to the mother of all bailouts […]

Image by Public Citizen via FlickrAs credit card lenders reduce their risk exposure by closing credit card accounts and reducing lines of credit, we will start seeing a large reduction in consumer spending. This is affecting not only middle class families, but higher income families as well. From the point of view of the lenders, […]

The need for re-industrializing America

Franklin @ August 5, 2008 # 7 Comments

(Originally posted at my.barackobama.com) Beyond political discourse, we need to face the reality that America’s economy has been declining since mid 2001. The economic policies of the Bush administration did nothing to encourage the creation of new industries. If we use the image of an engine to represent the economy, what the Bush administration has […]

Why fundamental analysis of commodities is wrong, and irrational

Franklin @ July 30, 2008 # 3 Comments

I have discussed in several articles my position that gold is just another commodity subject to the ebb and flow of speculative money. Today I will talk a little bit about oil and why I think all the fundamental analysis are fundamentally wrong. If I write that we are experiencing peak oil price rather than […]
