Share Holders Would Likely Get Wiped Out if Banks Are Nationalized

Since last August, the political and economy pundits on many of the popular financial programs have been telling us to buy into the financial sector because the stock prices were so cheap.

Cheap and worthless are completely different things.  Shares of banking giants Citigroup and Bank of America hit record lows again on Friday as fears of them being nationalized grew. 

Meanwhile the Obama administration continues to say they have no intention of nationalizing the banking system and believe the best place for the banking system is in the private sector.  As true as that is, the largest banks in the nation are much too big to fail and if their stock values drop any lower the government may be force to take complete control of them.

I’m glad I didn’t listen to any of the economic ‘experts’ on many of the popular financial media programs.  Those who did could get completely wiped out. 

If part of your 401k is allocated to the financial sector, it will likely get wiped out. This is a complete disaster of the financial system as most of the large banks are insolvent and unlikely to return to profitability for several years if not decades.

Gold: The Once and Future Money

Governments and central bankers around the world today unanimously agree on the desirability of stable money, ever more so after some monetary disaster has reduced yet another economy to smoking ruins. Lewis shows how gold provides the stability needed to foster greater prosperity and productivity throughout the world. He offers an insightful look at money in all its forms, from the seventh century B.C. to the present day, explaining in straightforward layman’s terms the effects of inflation, deflation, and floating currencies along with their effect on prices, wages, taxes, and debt.

Freedom: America's Competitive Advantage in the Global Market

Gamble argues that globalization brings far more benefits to the U.S. economy than it takes away. Gamble shows that both Europe and emerging economic powers like China and India have serious long-terms problems linked to their cultures, political structures, occasional instability, and state ownership of companies. These and other factors will eventually put a brake on the economic growth of hot emerging economies. The fundamental protections of property and free speech, a culture that promotes and rewards entrepreneurship, banking policies that make capital easily available, are still more supportive of economic growth and wealth creation than can be found anywhere else.

Empire of Debt

Many Americans have resisted the notion that their country is an imperial power. The idea seems to contradict the values of the Republic and its Founding Fathers. But in Empire of Debt, prominent financial analysts Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin argue passionately that not only is the United States an empire, but it is also one whose end is coming soon.
