  • Cuts in public spending have a "human cost," IMF's Strauss-Kahn says, exhorting governments to find ways to boost employment to prevent a generation of workers from losing skills.

  • Amazingly, the government's mortgage modification scheme fails to consider whether a property is underwater - likely the driving force in delinquency. It also refuses to address second liens - the ones owned by the same banks the Treasury is urging to modify loans they service.  [View news story]

  • GE (GE) "strongly disagrees with the premise" it is selling off assets in a desparate attempt to raise cash. But looking at recent deals, and GE's effort to dump NBC Universal's $2B in debt by selling it into a JV at way below market value, Daniel Fisher can't help but wonder: What then?  [View news story]

  • Analysts come out surprisingly mindful of The Independent's report of a plot to topple the dollar, despite emphatic denials from the central banks named. "The author (Robert Fisk) is a long-standing and well-known Middle East correspondent," Barcap says. "This is not The Sun, nor the NY Post," Dennis Gartman adds.  [View news story]

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Should Have Stayed in Inverness Medical (9/25/09) [View article]
    Maket should bang down 10pt on S&P(give or take) then ramp up and give a few more weeks up..If it bangs below next support then a drop back to early june week of doji s is a possibility. i think this is a stronger market than it should be..but if thats the hand dealt ..play on..Between the banks ,GS and Gov t intervention..(PPT) this fuckers gonna rock upward for 2 reasons ( my take on it ) banks need money to repay TARP and the stage has to be set to promote spending over the holidays.. they can keep it creeping up a few sectors at a time, while allowing other to pullback and correct, then rotate..IMHO

  • Home ownership may be the American dream, but it's become an impossibly expensive one for taxpayers, with $80B lost on mortgage interest in 2009, Fannie and Freddie eating up another $100B, and the $860B the Fed's used so far to bring interest rates down. Rather than increasing subsidies for new buyers, Washington needs to find a way out of this mess.  [View news story]
