The Global Liquidity Squeeze Has Begun

economic-2Bworries(Source: Economic Collapse Blog) – Get ready for another major worldwide credit crunch.  Today, the entire global financial system resembles a colossal spiral of debt.  Just about all economic activity involves the flow of credit in some way, and so the only way to have “economic growth” is to introduce even more debt into the system.  When the system started to fail back in 2008, global authorities responded by pumping this debt spiral back up and getting it to spin even faster than ever.  If you can believe it, the total amount of global debt has risen by $35 trillion since the last crisis.  Unfortunately, any system based on debt is going to break down eventually, and there are signs that it is starting to happen once again.  For example, just a few days ago the IMF warned regulators to prepare for a global “liquidity shock“.  And on Friday, Chinese authorities announced a ban on certain types of financing for margin trades on over-the-counter stocks, and we learned that preparations are being made behind the scenes in Europe for a Greek debt default and a Greek exit from the eurozone.  On top of everything else, we just witnessed the biggest spike in credit application rejections ever recorded in the United States.  All of these are signs that credit conditions are tightening, and once a “liquidity squeeze” begins, it can create a lot of fear.

St. Louis Fed President Bullard Is Talking About Tightening; Can An Economic Slump Be Far Behind?

Storm-Clouds(Source: Wall Street on Parade) – Since the depths of the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, has been talking up a storm and moving markets. On multiple occasions, however, after Bullard has talked up tightening, he’s had to backtrack and urge easier monetary policy as the U.S. economy wilted back into subpar GDP growth.

Yesterday, at a presentation to the annual Hyman P. Minsky “Conference on the State of the U.S. and World Economies,” Bullard made a case for the Fed raising interest rates sooner than the markets expect. Among the key points presented in his slide presentation were that “U.S. labor markets have been improving at a rapid pace over the last year,” and “U.S. GDP growth prospects remain relatively robust.”
