Three Years After Lehman, A New Debt Crisis Looms

Recommended Posts

Three years after Lehman, a new debt crisis looms.

The F word is back. Back in the financial markets, back in the conclaves of central bank governors, back among the manufacturers and the high-street retailers. The four-letter word is fear.

Back in the spring, few imagined that we would be approaching the third anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers on 15 September with such a sense of unease. The belief in early 2011 was that economic recovery was now well enough embedded for central banks to start raising interest rates and for finance ministries to crack on with the job of reducing budget deficits.

Although pockets of optimism remain, the mood today is different. Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, has said the US central bank will discuss possible ways to stimulate growth when it meets next month. The Bank of England appears to be heading in a similar direction. There is anxiety at the International Monetary Fund that blanket austerity will tip fragile western economies back into recession. Concerns are once again being expressed about the health of the banks, about America's national debt and, above all, about whether the eurozone can survive its current crisis intact.

Its not a new debt crisis it is the same one that has just been hidden and delayed for three years.

Who made Ben Bernanke the 'King of the world' ? How about he visits the real world, where 'hopefully' he can see that us mere mortals couldn't produce enough to match his computers in the good times let alone when it's gone to rat shit!

Isn't the telegraph getting it's headlines from the Northampton Chronicle and Echo ?

I thought the Telegraph got it's headlines from its owners, the reclusive property speculators the Barclays?
