Reform=not paying?   15 y  
Any of you who have read even a sprinkling of spirit of money- know that the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corp is broke- they just haven't come out and "reported" it until now!..It seems to me, after years of "knowing" and watching- our Large infrastructures never admit their insolvency until a year after the truth is known ...maybe this cushions the impact- kinda like discounting the market! Yes, it is probably planned this way- leak the bad news, suspect the bad news, talk about the repercussions of the bad news, and then admit all the bad news is in fact a reality- very interesting...then the whole economy can be preserved until it finally collapses.

GAO Finds Serious Flaws in IRS Controls As a result, the service reportedly didn’t provide ”reasonable assurance” that losses, misstatements, and noncompliance could be prevented or found out in sufficient time.

Pensions Go on the Balance Sheet: FASB In a unanimous vote, the accounting standards board decided last week to look into an overhaul of the retiree-benefit accounting system. Lisa Yoon, CFO.com November 14, 2005 Employers would be facing a bumpy road ahead if they’re no longer permitted to smooth results over a number of years when they account for the pensions and retiree health benefits they provide. That possibility became much more immediate last Thursday, when the Financial Accounting Standards Board voted to add a project to its agenda studying pension accounting. Speci ...   read more

Motley Fool triggers   15 y  
Or better known as "Why did Martha Stewart do Time?" Because any one that has a stop limit order does it in writing- not by discussing with their broker and certainly not dicussing with the Chair of the Company who has inside information!

Airlines, GMAC and others are contributing to the Pension bankruptcy...PBGC can't cover everyone's mistakes? Or can we?
GM, PBGC May Spar over GMAC Proceeds When a company’s debt ratings are below investment grade and its pension fund is underfunded, the agency has some leverage on proceeds from asset sales. Stephen Taub, CFO.com November 10, 2005 If General Motors sells its consumer finance subsidiary, who gets the proceeds? The company? Shareholders? The folks who guarantee pension funds may have something to say about this, observed The Wall Street Journal.

Tomato Bond?   15 y  
I don't know the most appalling fact is that there is a bond consulting firm named Tomato?
Value at Risk Profit-center treasuries are back, but not in the way you might think. Ben McLannahan, CFO Europe November 10, 2005 In normal circumstances, shutting down a consistently money-spinning division might cause the odd eyebrow to be raised in the boardroom or among investors. But these weren’t normal circumstances. In spring 2002, ABB was in deep trouble. The Swiss-Swedish power giant’s total debt of €9 billion ($11 billion) exceeded its market value of around $9.6 billion. The firm was facing a liquidity crunch, and potentially huge liabilities from asbestos lawsuits in ...   read more

US$$ @ 2 yr. HI?   15 y  
So does that mean that the Europeans are doing a worse job than the U.S., while the U.S. has the greatest demographic bulge coming to age for benefits, and A WAR? Holy Smokes!
Dollar Hits 2-Year High Against Euro By EDMUND L. ANDREWS Published: November 9, 2005 WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 - The dollar rose on Tuesday to its highest level against the euro in two years, propelled by rising interest rates in the United States and rising pessimism about Europe. The dollar’s move, the latest in a climb that has been under way in fits and starts for months, continued the trend away from traders’ fixation last year on the United States’ large and rising foreign indebtedness. The dollar also gained strength against the Japanese yen. But the steady rise of the dollar m ...   read more

Empire of Debt   15 y  
I think the gloom and doom never plays out to the extent these are predicting. But according to my readings we are the only country in history that has not paid the piper...so what are the odds? Don't ask me I would've predicted this ages ago!(Probably time to buy!) Oh and I do not have an affiliation with Agora- they are an affiliate of the A-letter-Bob bauman.
Empire of Debt: 10 Great Delusions That Will Erode Your Wealth Baltimore, MD - ”Watching the news is a bit like watching a bad opera,” ”Watching the news is a bit like watching a bad opera,” so say bestselling authors Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin. “You can tell from all the shrieking that something very important is supposed to be happening, but you don’t quite know what it is. What you’re missing is the plot.” The highly anticipated Empire of Debt: The Rise of an Epic Financial Crisis (Wiley), Bonner and Wiggin’s follow-up to their international bestseller, Financial Reckoning Day ...   read more

A-letter~ China and the US.
BOB BAUMAN FROM BEIJING: Strange how disorienting being in the Orient is. I’m writing this about 35,000 feet in the air aboard a Thai Airways flight from Bangkok to Beijing, somewhere over central China. My trusty laptop desktop tells me it’s 2:00 AM EST, Tuesday, Nov. 8, back in hurricane ravaged south Florida. Here in the Chinese stratosphere it is two in the afternoon the same day. A week of R&R in Thailand mercifully allowed my body, if not my mind, to adapt to the earth’s rotation and my insignificant place therein. I am more than curious as to what I will see when I lan ...   read more

Creation of Money   15 y  
This is the best and most honest evaluation I have seen on the truth of Fed Reserve, and interest rates. Greenspan and Bernanke- truly the power is limited. This is, from my study, the truth of US and our financial irresponsibility!
Our comment today is from John Pugsley, Chairman of the Sovereign Society and a leading author on economics, investments, and free markets. He is also the founder of The Bio-Rational Institute. ======================================================================== COMMENT: Behind the Interest Rate Curtain. Dear A-Letter Reader: Economists and market analysts are effusive about the appointment of Ben Bernanke to the post of Chairman of the Federal Reserve System. The hope, as expressed by the majority of economists and market analysts, is that the new monetary wizard will be ab ...   read more

PBGC is broke now?   15 y  
Gee if the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corp is already stretched now- then this new rolling pension blackout will be the overkill
Defined-benefit Plans Face $218B Deficit ’’A flat stock market, combined with a growing pension obligation, does not bode well,’’ according to a recent report. Stephen Taub, CFO.com November 04, 2005 Large-company pension plans will weaken this year due to mediocre returns that have not kept pace with growing pension obligations, according to a report by Credit Suisse First Boston. The investment firm estimated that the defined-benefit plans of the S&P 500 may be underfunded by $218 billion at the end of this year, compared with $165 billion at the close of 2004. ”A f ...   read more

Real Wealth not a matter of $$   15 y  
I've just finished a book entitled The Soul of Money, I highly reccommend it for everyone..It explores this same topic Money and our behaviors with money and many more in depth
Last week in this section, I asked the question: ’Do you expect to be wealthy Ż why or why not?’ This elicited more response than any of our previous surveys. You all obviously have a lot of strong feelings about wealth. Many of you clarified that it’s the “love of money,” not money itself, that the Bible says is the root of all evil. Some of you still did say money is the root of all evil. Please send what you have my way as I will be happy to handle your share. Many, many of you wrote wonderful descriptions of what you consider true “wealth.” A very smal ...   read more
