]China enters deflation as February CPI falls 1.6%


HONG KONG (MarketWatch) -- China's consumer price index dropped 1.6% in February from the year-earlier period, taking the economy into a deflationary zone, according to official data released Tuesday, media reports said. The drop was in line with economists surveyed by Reuters, and came in the wake of easing prices of food items and motor fuels. The producer price index, meanwhile, slumped 4.5% in February from the year-earlier month

Lehman buy-out house reborn


A new private equity house was set to be born from the wreckage of Lehman Brothers on Monday, with investors in the failed US investment bank’s buy-out business expected to vote for its recreation in a shrunken form.

While many institutional investors are exiting their troubled private equity holdings, Johann Rupert, the South African billionaire, joined forces with managers from Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking Partners to buy it out of the bank.

The rebirth of LBMB, which came close to collapse after Lehman’s bankruptcy last October, highlights how private equity’s long-term financing can help it survive tough conditions.

On Monday night votes were being counted from 320 investors in LBMB, which is expected to have about $3.4bn of assets under management, mostly in the US and Europe. It is expected to secure the necessary majority to survive under new owners.

Mr Rupert told the Financial Times that his investment was part of a strategy to diversify his holdings away from his Richemont luxury goods empire and to acquire assets that can “preserve capital” against inflation.

Moody's lists companies at debt default risk: report


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Companies ranging from Eastman Kodak (EK.N) to Unisys (UIS.N) are at risk of defaulting on their debt in the eyes of credit ratings agency Moody's Investors Service, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Moody's is expected on Tuesday to publish a list detailing 283 such companies, called "The Bottom Rung," which it will update monthly, according to a story published on the newspaper's website on Monday.

About 45 percent of companies on the list will default on debt in the next year, Moody's says, which could include anything from filing for bankruptcy to missing debt payments.

Companies in the U.S. car industry, retail chains, media and casino gambling dominate the list, and energy firms, airlines and restaurant chains appear often, the newspaper said.

The story quoted a Kodak spokesman as saying that speculation of this kind was "irresponsible" and added that the company "is financially solid."

A Unisys spokesman was not immediately available.

HSI has been keeping it's relative value despite the downturn world wide...I wonder why this is? Could it be USD reserve conversion? There are sellers of dollars out there, and China is the buyer...They're going to use them soon.

Be forewarned. If you have USD assets, prepare for another large dislocation soon.

The more China and other countries buy up the USD the high chance of them selling it all and bankrupting the US government.

It's a horrible system imho.

Those articles you posted just really relay the message that nobody knows what to do to get out of this mess. Well people know how to get us out but they don't want to listen to the rational people.

Question is how much money and how many decades are they going to put us in the hole before they realize that globalization is an unsustainable system. Their "proof of concept" is bringing down the entire world.

I guess they are hell bent on bringing us to complete economic collapse where we are all going to be living in a Mad Max type world, because they are spineless and unwilling to admit that they screwed up and face the consequences of their actions.

We recently had a dislocation that sent the value of the USD up by quite a bit. Think about it, our dollar has had nothing but gains lately. It is inflating in value because of demand for it. It's another bubble, one that began many decades ago. When the Chinese call and convert those bonds to Yuan denominated investments there will be a wash of currency drowning us all. Especially if China blackmails the EU, and they will, by doing the same thing to them if need be.

European Factors -- Shares seen opening mixed
www.reuters.com...

LONDON, March 10 (Reuters) - European shares were expected
to open mixed on Tuesday, but investors were likely to stay cautious following
losses in U.S. and Japanese markets on weaker pharmaceutical stocks. Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE to open down
19-28 points, Germany's DAX .GDAX to open between 2 points higher and 10
points lower and France's CAC-40 .FCHI to trade between 1 point higher and 6
points lower.
Japan's Nikkei average .N225 fell 0.4 percent on Tuesday, with drugmakers
such as Astellas Pharma (4503.T) sliding amid worries about their global
competitiveness after Merck (MRK.N) proposed to take over Schering-Plough
(SGP.N). U.S. stocks fell in choppy trade overnight and the Nasdaq slid to a fresh 6
and 1/2-year low as shares of the biggest drugmakers fell after Merck's (MRK.N)
proposed a $41 billion takeover of Schering-Plough (SGP.N). On Monday, The FTSEurofirst 300 .FTEU3 index of top European shares closed 0.7 percent lower at 657.30 points after setting a fresh lifetime low. The index
has declined 21 percent so far this year after plunging 45 percent in 2008.

We had a roughly mixed day, HSI did very well, EU will have a mixed day with GB being the hardest hit for the trading day on news of more easing. China will buy low sell high by the end of next week and GB will have lost 10 to 15% market value. This will bleed into the US and start causing the BIG bank failures the FDIC is jacking our money for.

Thanks to AIG a CHINESE company posing as an American insurer.(I recommend looking into their Chinese roots) Still think this is an accident?
It is war people, literally war. Battle stations already. If you are trading and you're reading this, if you don't wanna lose all your money find a safe place to park it that IS NOT THE USA or the EU.

I hadn't read that book. But I wish I had, I might have caught what was happening sooner. The more research I did on our economy the more China came up, and I went to see how deep it went, and now here I am. It is very clear to me that much of this economic meltdown has been the result of a well calculated and opportunistic plan, long in the making. There's no other explanation for what China is doing and has been doing.

Their survival in this economic climate MANDATES that they cut our throats on the way to the top, and use the corpse of Americas economy as stepping stones. If they don't do this, their future is as dire as ours. The reason we CANNOT WIN THIS WAR is because our names are on that debt.

Wow, you just observed it all
, that book was released in 2000.

You might read it now and say - well duh! But for many, it really will open eyes to understand the patience and intensive planning that China has had to achieve it's goals of World "Supreme Power"

And we may just be the generation that lives to see it achieve those long sought for goals

Asian Stocks Rise From Five-Year Low; HSBC Surges, Sony Drops



HSBC Holdings Plc, Europe’s biggest bank, jumped 15 percent in Hong Kong as the government probed a 24 percent tumble in the stock yesterday. Cnooc Ltd., China’s largest offshore oil producer, climbed 6.4 percent as crude rose to a two-month high. Sony Corp. and Hyundai Motor Co. lost more than 2 percent after Warren Buffett said the U.S. economy “has fallen off a cliff.”


HSBC is a Chinese bank not an EU bank. They have many of the same regional-identity conflicts that AIG has.
