Quote of the day:

“This is a make-or-break moment for the European Union: the decisions we make today will determine whether Europe remains an area of stability, prosperity and freedom based on solidarity, responsibility and cohesion. A lot has already been done to make sure that it will. But much remains to be done, and it will have to be done with due regard for our values, our founding principles and the rule of law…We are experiencing a situation in which we share both an internal market and a common currency, where transnational problems cannot be adequately resolved at national level, while the European level has yet to be consolidated to such a degree that it can resolve them effectively…The present crisis has shown the limits of individual action by nation states. Europe and the principles of the Treaty need to be renewed. We need more integration, and the corollary of more integration has to be more democracy. This European renewal must represent a leap in quality and enable Europe to rise to the challenges of the world today by giving it the tools it needs to react more effectively and to shape and control the future.”

President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso speaking at Yale’s Global Constitutionalism Seminar at The Hague (Source: Rapid)

 

Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland.  Von Greyerz also said we are edging closer to panic and he expects this will accelerate the flow of funds into gold.  Here is what Greyerz had to say about the situation: “Eric, I don’t know if you read the book by John Galbraith, ‘The Great Crash 1929?’  He wrote about how every day there was a bad piece of news, and in the end, everybody gets immune to it.  I think that’s exactly what we are seeing now.”

“There is so much bad news every single day that people are not reacting to it.  What will happen is all of this pent-up risk is going to erupt one day.  I’m seeing the dominos falling here, daily.

 We talked about Spain last time.  Spain has now borrowed $415 billion from the ECB, and that’s about 63% of the total ECB lending.  Bad debts in the Spanish banks are going up at record levels.  Bad debts over the last 3 months are now 8% of total debt.  That’s massive.  

 It also means defaults are not far away, and the banks haven’t reserved for these….

“The banking world is on the way to bankruptcy here.  We’ve talked about the leverage in the banking system, but people don’t seem concerned about it.  What we are going to see, one day, is when these dominos start falling, there will be panic.

 Banks are supposed to come down to 20 times leverage.  There is only one bank of the top twenty-five banks in the world today that is below 20 times leverage.  Every other bank is above.  20 times leverage means that if they only lose 5% on their loan book, they have lost their capital.

 I will bet you that virtually every bank in the world has a bad debt position which is worse than 5% of their assets.  And if you look at an entity such as Deutsche Bank, do you know what their leverage is?  62 times.  It means that if they have a bad debt position of 1.5%, the bank is bust.  Deutsche Bank is bigger than German GDP.  So, if something happens to Deutsche Bank, Germany goes under. 

 Credit Agricole, the largest French bank, has 63 times leverage.  This is absolutely frightening.  >> Read More

24 Scary Facts About the U.S. Economy

13 October 2010 - 23:58 pm
 

#1 Ten years ago, the United States was ranked number one in average wealth per adult.  In 2010, the United States has fallen to seventh.

#2 The United States once had the highest proportion of young adults with post-secondary degrees in the world.  Today, the U.S. has fallen to 12th

#3 In the 2009 “prosperity index” published by the Legatum Institute, the United States was ranked as just the ninth most prosperous country in the world.  That was down five places from 2008.

#4 In 2001, the United States ranked fourth in the world in per capita broadband Internet use.  Today it ranks 15th.

#5 The economy of India is projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2050.

#6 One prominent economist now says that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.

#7 According to a new study conducted by Thompson Reuters, China could become the global leader in patent filings by next year.

#8 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001.  Approximately 75 percent of those factories employed at least 500 workers while they were still in operation.

#9 The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#10 Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

#11 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of all U.S. economic output.  In 2008, it represented only 11.5 percent.

#12 The television manufacturing industry began in the United States.  So how many televisions are manufactured in the United States today?  According to Princeton University economist Alan S. Blinder, the grand total is zero.

#13 As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing.  The last time that less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

#14 Back in 1980, the United States imported approximately 37 percent of  the oil that we use.  Now we import nearly 60 percent of the oil that we use.

#15 The U.S. trade deficit is running about 40 or 50 billion dollars a month in 2010.  That means that by the end of the year approximately half a trillion dollars (or more) will have left the United States for good.

#16 Between 2000 and 2009, America’s trade deficit with China increased nearly 300 percent.

#17 Today, the United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that China spends on goods from the United States.

#18 According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs this year alone.

#19 American 15-year-olds do not even rank in the top half of all advanced nations when it comes to math or science literacy.

#20 Median household income in the U.S. declined from $51,726 in 2008 to $50,221 in 2009.  That was the second yearly decline in a row.

#21 The United States has the third worst poverty rate among the advanced nations tracked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

#22 Since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, the U.S. dollar has lost over 95 percent of its purchasing power.

#23 U.S. government spending as a percentage of GDP is now up to approximately 36 percent.

#24 The Congressional Budget Office is projecting that U.S. government public debt will hit 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.
