Today News - China bond defaults triple in 2018, likely to rise further in 2019 The year 2018 witnessed an unprecedented wave of corporate bond defaults in China, as the world’s second biggest economy lost steam amid a trade war with the United States. The expectation that the economy will slow further, combined with the government’s continued efforts to rein in debt and risky lending, suggest the number of defaults is likely to increase further next year. The number of corporate bond default cases surged to 119 in 2018, or more than triple the 35 cases in 2017, while the v...

Debt Crisis of United States of America 2018 Explained in a Simplified Way
Debt Crisis in United States of America, A Simplified way of understanding the whole scenario of the debt crisis, the inevitable collapse of the american Economy. A must watch simple explanation video for understanding the scenario of US Economy, inflation, stagflation, recession etc. for all those who are considering to shift their jobs and businesses to US in coming future, Sorry for the outdated data figures in the video but it will give you a straight and simple idea about the thing. Debt Crisis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debt_crisis US Debt Crisis 2013: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_debt-ceiling_crisis_of_2013 US debt crisis 2011: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_debt-ceiling_crisis_of_2011 Stagflation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stagflation Some Featured Thoughts by viewers: David Hung: In order not to pay their debt , The evil U.S government will start wars all over the wold , like they always do in the past , in north Africa , Mid-East , South America & wish to overthrow their biggest creditor China . When U.S government use their borrow-money to build army , weapons & missile to kill human life , they even say they believe in God ,how would God answer this BS ! The most bad thing in the world is that you borrow money and you do not pay back , so you kill the person you borrow money from. Cassio VA : Solutions: 1- Make the bigs companies pay taxes 2- Stop burning money whit military things 3- Turn Communism Emperor Tikacuti : The preparation will be, WWIII and the collapse of the American imperial economy, because the American Empire owes more than 20 trillion dollars, both to the nations of the world and the government. If they continue to borrow money from other nations, other nations will feel threatened and will rise as anti-Americans, because they don't want their money to be stolen and borrowing money from the bank will lead to serious problems, for internal debt, whether banking, IRS, companies, insurances and even health care and whatever they're doing against nations and itself and citizens refuse to pay but spend on materials and products, the fault will not be the government but the people as well, because the American Empire isn't ruled by the government but by the people, who caused the collapse and starting a war against nations for resource like Nazi Germany. WWIII will lead the collapse of the American Empire and Capitalism, ending the Cold War and other problems and that time will come, when the bomb hits. Goler Soft 7: how does the government pay back the us debt by putting the fed printed money in banks all around america? and plus the fed charges interest witch puts the government in more debt. so basicly dats paying debt wit debt. also, how does paying back the debt with the federal reserve money cause inflation when the governments not putting the loaned fed money in the economy just using it on the debt? or mabey the government isnt using it to pay the debt. mabye there just putting it in the ecconomy causing inflation claiming there paying off the debt, but really causing inflation. but why? kalatapie: there are two easy steps in fixing the debt crisis: step 1: increce the taxes on the wealthy people. why? because it is not normal for a man to make more money a day than an american makes a lifetime! stem 2: reduce military spending. because, seriously, the cold war is over. you do not need to spend 20% of your GDP in the military considering that there is no major threat for your country. Demogorgon47 : And when the global financial collapse happens revolution will most likely begin. Millions will die from lack of resources and warfare. People will be calling for the heads of the douchebags that enacted the ridiculous federal reserves that corrupted the whole fucking system to begin with. Reserve banks are the cancer in the system. Loaning the people the nation's currency at interest in a huge fucking mistake. A robbery of the worst kind and it'll bring the whole system crashing down because a few greedy fucks decided to rob EVERYONE world wide. It's a broken system. Either replace it with a resource based economy or hold the greedy fucks accountable. Oh that's right they've got everyone in their pocket so they're untouchable. Fucking bullshit. Why is it no one listens to voice of reason? If people did so maybe we wouldn't be heading towards extinction by greed!

Buy Defaulted International Bonds
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/buy-defaulted-international-bonds Buy Defaulted International Bonds There may be a new investment opportunity in the international bond markets. If you have a high risk tolerance in pursuit of stellar profits you might want to buy defaulted international bonds. Your first thought may be that it will not take a lot of fundamental analysis to determine that defaulted bonds in a foreign country may be a really bad investment choice. Normally this would be the case but an item in the business news indicates that in the future it may not be such a risky proposition to buy defaulted international bonds. At issue in the current situation are bonds from the country of Argentina. Argentina Defaults on $100 Billion in Debt Argentina defaulted on about $100 Billion in debt, denominated in US dollars, in 2001. Many if not most of the bond holders were offered bonds with a substantially lower value and they agreed to the deal. They retained some value and have been receiving payments ever since. Those who refused the offer had bonds that were worth cents on the dollar if that. Now a number of large hedge funds are suing in US courts to have Argentina pay in full on their defaulted bonds. The hedge funds won in a lower court and now have had the decision upheld by a three judge panel of the US Court of Appeals. It remains to be seen how these hedge funds would collect even if they win. But, it also remains to be seen how any foreign country could offer their bonds to US investors in the future if US courts determine that when US investors buy defaulted bonds that they can be eventually paid in full. Defaulted bonds were not one of our three great foreign investments ideas . But with enough risk tolerance and the potential for huge profits one might buy defaulted international bonds if the price is right and the profit potential high enough. Investing Offshore Successful international investment strategies include investing in foreign stocks , foreign real estate investments , setting up the management aspect of a business in a tax friendly locale, setting up shop for one's entire business offshore, buying bonds and more. With any of these international investment strategies one ought to consider access to markets, manpower needs and costs, access to appropriate technology, and growth potential. And, in the case of bonds one needs to consider the ability as well as the willingness of the government in question to pay its bills. Slower Emerging Nation Economic Growth Coming out of the 2008 Great Recession, Asia was the engine of growth while Europe wallowed in recession and the USA slowly improved. Growth seemed to be the province of the BRICS nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. We noted some time back that when value investing for long term profits, going where the growth is, is the beginning of a good strategy. Now, however, India, South Africa and Brazil are all seeing substantial slowing. China is flirting with a real estate bubble. Intrinsic value of overseas investments is the same as in the USA. The value of an investment hinges on its forward looking income stream. As slower growth hits the BRICS nations there could be more opportunity to buy defaulted international bonds. If this interests you make sure that the price is right and that someone with deep pockets is footing the bill to take the issue to court. http://youtu.be/FlWS5rBKvpU

What is SOVEREIGN DEFAULT? What does SOVEREIGN DEFAULT mean? SOVEREIGN DEFAULT meaning - SOVEREIGN DEFAULT definition - SOVEREIGN DEFAULT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A sovereign default is the failure or refusal of the government of a sovereign state to pay back its debt in full. Cessation of due payments (or receivables) may either be accompanied by formal declaration (repudiation) of a government not to pay (or only partially pay) its debts, or it may be unannounced. A credit rating agency will take into account in its gradings capital, interest, extraneous and procedural defaults, failures to abide by the terms of bonds or other debt instruments. Countries have at times escaped the real burden of some of their debt through inflation. This is not "default" in the usual sense because the debt is honored, albeit with currency of lesser real value. Sometimes governments devalue their currency. This can be done by printing more money to apply toward their own debts, or by ending or altering the convertibility of their currencies into precious metals or foreign currency at fixed rates. Harder to quantify than an interest or capital default, this often is defined as an extraneous or procedural default (breach) of terms of the contracts or other instruments. If potential lenders or bond purchasers begin to suspect that a government may fail to pay back its debt, they may demand a high interest rate in compensation for the risk of default. A dramatic rise in the interest rate faced by a government due to fear that it will fail to honor its debt is sometimes called a sovereign debt crisis. Governments may be especially vulnerable to a sovereign debt crisis when they rely on financing through short-term bonds, since this creates a situation of maturity mismatch between their short-term bond financing and the long-term asset value of their tax base. They may also be vulnerable to a sovereign debt crisis due to currency mismatch: if few bonds in their own currency are accepted abroad, and so the country issues mainly foreign-denominated bonds, decrease in the value of their own currency can make it prohibitively expensive to pay back their foreign-denominated bonds (see original sin). Since a sovereign government, by definition, controls its own affairs, it cannot be obliged to pay back its debt. Nonetheless, governments may face severe pressure from lending countries. In a few extreme cases, a major creditor nation, before the establishment of the UN Charter Article 2 (4) prohibiting use of force by states, made threats of war or waged war against a debtor nation for failing to pay back debt to seize assets to enforce its creditor's rights. For example, Britain invaded Egypt in 1882. Other examples include the United States' "gunboat diplomacy" in Venezuela in the mid-1890s and the United States occupation of Haiti beginning in 1915. Today a government which defaults may be widely excluded from further credit, some of its overseas assets may be seized; and it may face political pressure from its own domestic bondholders to pay back its debt. Therefore, governments rarely default on the entire value of their debt. Instead, they often enter into negotiations with their bondholders to agree on a delay (debt restructuring) or partial reduction of their debt (a 'haircut or write-off'). Some economists have argued that, in the case of acute insolvency crises, it can be advisable for regulators and supranational lenders to preemptively engineer the orderly restructuring of a nation’s public debt- also called "orderly default" or "controlled default". In the case of Greece, these experts generally believe that a delay in organising an orderly default would hurt the rest of Europe even more. The International Monetary Fund often lends for sovereign debt restructuring. To ensure that funds will be available to pay the remaining part of the sovereign debt, it has made such loans conditional on acts such as reducing corruption, imposing austerity measures such as reducing non-profitable public sector services, raising the tax take (revenue) or more rarely suggesting other forms of revenue raising such as nationalization of inept or corrupt but lucrative economic sectors. A recent example is the Greek bailout agreement of May 2010.

Default Risk and Bond Rating - Finance - What is the Definition - Financial Dictionary
Although bonds normally promise a fixed flow of income, this does not mean that they are riskless investments. Although U.S. government bonds are treated as risk-free, this is not the case for corporate bonds. If a company goes bankrupt then the bondholders will not receive the payments that they have been promised and therefore there is some uncertainty surrounding future bond payments. This uncertainty is called default risk. The default risk is measured by Moody's Investors Services, Standard & Poor's Corporation, and Fitch Investors Service. All three of these entities provide financial information on firms as well as well as ratings on corporate and municipal bonds. Investment Grade Bonds Bonds that are rated BBB or above by Standard & Poor's, or Baa or above by Moody's are called investment grade bonds. Speculative Grade or Junk Bonds Bonds that are rated BB or lower by Standard and Poor's, Ba or lower by Moody's, or bonds that are unrated are considered junk bonds or speculative grade bonds. Bond rating agencies use financial ratios to grade bonds. The key ratios used are show below as follows Coverage ratios Leverage ratio Liquidity ratios Profitability ratios Cash flow-to-debt ratio https://www.youtube.com/user/Subjectmoney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a7b8v6Mz7A

Of Course Government Bonds Are Safe - Peak Beneath the Skin of the Markets
We are told that governments bonds are the “Flight to Safety” trade. But are they as safe as they want everyone to believe? Not according to the Bank of Canada. This month the Venezuelan government and PDVSA, Venezuela’s oil company and the main source of revenues for the government, have both been declared in default on their debt. My bet is that this is just the start of a much bigger Sovereign debt default trend and the Bank of Canada seems to agree.

U.S. Debt Default = Epic Economic Collapse
"Anyone who remembers the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. little more than five years ago knows what a global financial disaster is. A U.S. government default, just weeks away if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling as it now threatens to do, will be an economic calamity like none the world has ever seen. Failure by the world's largest borrower to pay its debt -- unprecedented in modern history -- will devastate stock markets from Brazil to Zurich, halt a $5 trillion lending mechanism for investors who rely on Treasuries, blow up borrowing costs for billions of people and companies, ravage the dollar and throw the U.S. and world economies into a recession that probably would become a depression. Among the dozens of money managers, economists, bankers, traders and former government officials interviewed for this story, few view a U.S. default as anything but a financial apocalypse...".* What does Republican Speak Of The House John Boehner think?

Is Moody's WARNING Of A CRASH? - Massive Wave Of Junk Bond Defaults Ahead!
Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about Moody's most recent warning as the credit rating agency claims there is likely a large wave of junk bond defaults ahead. We have seen the level of global non-financial companies rated as speculative or junk rise 58% since 2009, the largest proportion in history! We've also seen a 49% increase in debt for U.S. companies as well as the rise of share buybacks which are becoming more prevalent and more risky by the day. Moody's warnings should not be taken in stride. The agency only issues warnings when they absolutely have to and cannot put off the bad market sentiment any longer. They can only cover up so long until it becomes obvious. For their own good, they have to look like a serious credit rating agency when the markets tank, so they can say "I told you so." According to Moody's, the low interest rates and obsession with yield has lead to companies issuing mounds of debt that in comparison offer low levels of protection for investors. They warn that when economic conditions worsen, the outlook won't be so benign. We haven't seen this level of concern since 2008, and there's a reason for that. Nothing has changed since 2008. Well, actually scratch that... things have gotten WORSE since 2008. We never saw a recovery, we simply saw perpetuation. Putting off the crisis a bit longer, leading to far more pressure build-up and centralization run amok. Now, when it comes down, it'll come down that much harder and it'll be as if no one ever learned. If we want to stop the circular havoc, we as individuals need to support the individual's demand of their currency, the free market. Not bank and government centralization leading to massive downfalls. How many times do we need to go through this. Of course the fundamentals are off the table due to the level of manipulation in the monetary system as well as the markets, so we cannot put a date on the crash, but we know it has to happen inevitably and so we must prepare and understand the repeated problems.

Marc Faber - Corporate or Government Bonds
For the latest Marc Faber, go to http://MarcFaberBlog.com - In the context of all the defaults by governments all over the world, the debt of Dubai is a very small problem. Anytime there is a serious problem, the central banks come in and print a bunch of money. Next 6 months to a year there won't be any serious problems because they can print money, but eventually countries will go bust, including the United States. Initially countries will be bailed out, but throughout history we have seen huge government defaults. We had stimulus packages and quantitative easing. You don't have to run away from US bonds today, but the upside looking ahead to the future don't have much upside. The dollar is weak, so your bonds will pay you less and less each year. There is also a credit risk on the bonds if the United States defaults on its bonds. Government bonds will soon yield more than corporate bonds. When you look at the world, you see Western Europe, the US, and Japan. The emerging markets combined are now larger than the economy of the three biggest economies combined. Moving forward, you should have half of your portfolio in emerging markets.

Venezuela in default: What next? 🇻🇪 | Counting the Cost
Oil-rich Venezuela has always paid its debts - even at the expense of its citizens. But this week, everything changed: Venezuela is now officially in default, which means it's officially bankrupt. Rating agency Standard & Poor's declared the nation in 'selective default' on Monday after it failed to make $200m in repayments for global bonds due in October. As more payments are due, Venezuela is facing what could be a messy financial unravelling. And that's not a good situation for its starving population as state assets may have to be sold off to pay credit holders. President Nicolas Maduro is acutely aware that he is running out of money, and he wants to restructure the billions owed to China, Russia and oil service providers. Russia has already agreed to restructure $3bn worth of debt held by Moscow. But US sanctions mean that other credit holders can't even be in the same room as those negotiating the restructuring. And it's not clear what's going to happen next. "Where we go from here is anyone's guess," explains Edward Glossop, an emerging markets economist at Capital Economics in London. Venezuela's debt "restructure talks look doomed to fail and it's only a matter of time before the government and state-owned oil company outright defaults on its external debt." "One of the key hurdles for the restructuring is US financial sanctions which prevent US investors from participating in any restructuring or refinancing deal ... and that's why we think the restructuring and refinancing is likely to fail in the current environment," says Glossop. Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Zimbabwe's broken economy: Zimbabwe's army seized control of the country on Tuesday night, claiming it was removing "criminals" around Robert Mugabe, and held the president and his family under house arrest. But can the military intervention really bring change for the country's ailing economy? The price of Bitcoin jumped as much as 10 percent on Zimbabwe's Golix exchange on Wednesday after the country's army seized power. Zimbabweans, just like Venezuelans, are buying things they think might retain value. Alisa Strobel, a senior economist at IHS Markit from Cape Town, offers her take. Lebanon's economic squeeze: Caught in the middle of a bitter Saudi-Iran rivalry, worries are growing about the outlook for the Lebanese economy. Growth has slowed to just over two percent a year from an average of eight percent before the war in Syria. But regional rivalries between Saudi Arabia and Iran have raised fears of a Qatar-style blockade. The recent resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri in Riyadh under mysterious circumstances has not been resolved. Just before he quit, the government had managed to pass a budget after years of political stalemate. Sami Atallah, the director of the Lebanese Center For Policy Studies in Beirut assesses why this matters for the region. Digital pills: It's been called the world's first digital medicine, and analysts say it could open up a new frontier in the Internet of Things. The US Food and Drug Administration just approved a digital pill. Basically, it's a sensor the size of a grain of sand. Once swallowed, it will send data to a smartphone app when patients have taken their medication. Kristen Saloomey reports from New York. Lab meat: Research shows that the global meat industry produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all cars, planes, trains and ships combined. But scientists in the Netherlands say they are close to bringing laboratory-grown meat to the market. This could slice emissions and save energy, reports Fleur Launspach from Amsterdam.

Puerto Rico Defaults On Debt for First Time
Puerto Rico defaulted on its full payment of its bonds for the first time in the commonwealth government's history. The island territory paid $628,000 out of a $58 million payment on its Public Finance Corp bonds which were due August 1st. But Puerto Rico's head of Government Development Bank said in a statement that the decision to not make the full payment balanced the obligations to creditors and citizens. The government did not wish to see a loss in social services, which is why they chose to default. The default comes as Puerto Rican leaders of both main political parties have asked Congress to allow them to restructure some of its debt that way states can do, as in the case of Detroit. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/48ac8655/sc/24/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Clatino0Cpuerto0Erico0Edefaults0Edebt0Efirst0Etime0En40A3371/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

3 Reasons Why You Should Not Pay Your Debt
Paying off an old collection or charge off will increase your credit score. This is a huge MYTH! Effects of Paying When you pay an older collection account or charge-off account, your credit score most likely will suffer. Think twice before paying off an old collection or charge off. By paying your debt, it renews the date of last activity. The collection company or creditors can now report the account for another 7 years. Everyone knows debt collections are bad for your credit score. Any past due accounts including debt collections have negative effects. These accounts report on your credit report for up to7 years. As accounts age, they have less and less impact on your credit score. Many consumers believe by paying off collections or charge-off accounts, that it will raise their credit scores. It certainly seems logical; however it is far from the truth. If you are concerned about your credit score, paying off debts prior to obtaining any other type of loan or mortgage can greatly hurt your credit score. Ultimately, if it is an older account when paid off (or payments are made on the account), by doing so can be devastating to ones credit score. The recent activity of any derogatory item has a big impact on how it effects your overall credit score. Is the Debt Still Valid? After a certain period of inactivity on an account, a debt becomes time-barred and debt collectors can no longer sue you for it. This period is known as "the statute of limitations on debt" and varies by state. If the statute of limitations has passed, it is illegal for a debt collector or creditor to sue you. You need to be careful in communicating with a debt collector because the debt statute of limitations can easily be restarted by acknowledging that you owe the debt, making a payment, entering a payment plan, making an agreement to pay or making a charge on the account. After 7 Years Collection and charge-off accounts should only remain on your credit report for 7 years. It is important to check your credit reports as the credit bureaus often continue reporting these derogatory accounts over the 7 year limit. If you have any questions regarding collection accounts on your credit reports, call our office today for your complimentary credit consultation.

The IL&FS Mess: Big Worry For Debt Market | CNBC-TV18
Over the past week, the company witnessed sharp downgrades in ratings. The primary reason for the downgrade was series of defaults and weakening of the company’s liquidity profile along with the diminishing expectation of funding support. IL&FS defaulted for the first time on inter-corporate deposits and commercial papers (borrowings) worth Rs 450 crore in June 2018. On September 4, it defaulted again on a short-term loan of Rs 1,000 crore from SIDBI (Small Industries Development Bank of India).

US Treasury warns of catastrophic harm from debt default
The US Treasury Department warns of the catastrophic effects of a debt default. It says the American economy could plunge into a downturn worse than the Great Recession if Congress fails to raise the federal borrowing limit. The Treasury says if the US defaults on its debt obligations, the credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet and interest rates could skyrocket. This comes as no breakthrough is in sight for the government and the Congress to end a stalemate over budget spending that has publicly broken America away. Now a small, but growing group of House Republicans is voicing concerns over the fallout from the government shutdown. They say it's time House Speaker John Boehner allowed a simple vote on a spending bill. They also say de-funding what they call Obamacare can wait until later.

The country last month deposited a $161 million payment with a newly appointed local trustee to try to circumvent U.S. court orders for it to settle with "holdout" investors suing for full repayment of bonds from a 2002 default before paying debtholders who accepted a restructuring deal. http://news.yahoo.com/argentina-default-spreads-par-bonds-raising-acceleration-risk-122318769--sector.html http://www.wochit.com

As Puerto Rico Nears Record Default, Island Complains to U.N. That U.S. Violating Sovereignty Rights
Democracynow.org - Puerto Rico is just days away from the biggest municipal bond default in U.S. history, and Congress is doing nothing to stop it. The U.S. territory faces a January 1 deadline to pay bondholders around $1 billion, a fraction of the $72 billion it owes overall. Puerto Rico has warned it will be unable to make at least some of its upcoming payment, and what it can pay could be drawn from funds it doesn’t actually have. Congress could have prevented a default, but passed on their opportunity earlier this month. The governor of Puerto Rico has complained to the United Nations that the United States is backtracking on its promises of self-government on the island. We are joined by Edwin Meléndez, professor of urban affairs and planning at Hunter College and the director of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies, as well as Democracy Now! co-host and New York Daily News columnist Juan González, who has extensively covered the Puerto Rico debt crisis.

Argentina heads into default as debt talks end; pro-government demo
Talks aimed at averting Argentina's second default in 13 years ended with bitter recriminations on Wednesday as the South American country said it could not accept a deal with US hedge fund creditors it dismisses as "vultures." Speaking at the Argentine Consulate in New York, Economy Minister Axel Kicillof said the US hedge funds, demanding a 1.5 billion dollar (886.6 million dollars) payment on outstanding Argentine bonds, had refused a compromise offer. The creditors also rejected requests to agree to a stay of a judge's order that would have allowed the interest payments to be made on time and avert what is likely to create great economic uncertainty for investors and citizens of the South American country. A US court ruling previously blocked Argentina from making 539 (m) million (318.6 million pounds) in interest payments due by midnight Wednesday to other bondholders who separately agreed to restructuring plans with the country in 2005 and 2010. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had long refused to negotiate with the hedge fund creditors, often calling them "vultures" for picking on the carcass of the country's record 100 (b) billion dollar (59.1 billion pounds) default in 2001.

Argentina plans debt swap with some creditors, seeking to sidestep US order on defaulted bonds
Argentina said on Tuesday it is working on a debt swap that would make payments in Argentina to creditors who accepted previous debt restructurings. The country's economy minister Axel Kicillof made the announcement at a news conference in Buenos Aires. The move came a day after the US Supreme Court refused to intervene in a US judge's order that would deny use of the US financial system to Argentina, unless it first pays off holders of defaulted bonds who didn't accept previous debt swaps. The high court also decided that the bondholders who won the legal case could use the American courts to force Argentina to reveal where it owns property around the world. The arrangement would involve investors who agreed to swap government bonds that were defaulted on in Argentina's 2001 economic collapse for new, less valuable bonds that the government has been paying on since 2005. It also seeks to avoid further US legal action by the "holdout" bondholders who won the judgment against Argentina. If Argentina were forced to pay off what the government calls "vulture funds," the country could become an easy prey and would ultimately be "pushed into a default," Kicillof said. Kicillof stressed that Argentina could not allow itself to break its commitment with creditors who have been collecting payments through a restructured debt agreements. "That is why we are initiating the steps to swap of debts to pay in Argentina and under Argentine law," he said. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez has criticised the US judge's ruling requiring a 1.5 (b) billion US dollar payment, of full value plus interest, to investors who didn't accept the previous debt restructurings.

What is GOVERNMENT DEBT? What does GOVERNMENT DEBT mean? GOVERNMENT DEBT meaning & explanation
What is GOVERNMENT DEBT? What does GOVERNMENT DEBT mean? GOVERNMENT DEBT meaning - GOVERNMENT DEBT definition - GOVERNMENT DEBT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Government debt (also known as public interest, national debt and sovereign debt) is the debt owed by a central government. (In federal states, "government debt" may also refer to the debt of a state or provincial, municipal or local government.) By contrast, the annual "government deficit" refers to the difference between government receipts and spending in a single year. A central government with its own currency can pay for its spending by creating money ex novo. In this instance, a government issues securities not to raise funds, but instead to remove excess bank reserves (caused by government spending that is higher than tax receipts) and '...create a shortage of reserves in the market so that the system as a whole must come to the Bank for liquidity.' Governments create debt by issuing securities, government bonds and bills. Less creditworthy countries sometimes borrow directly from a supranational organization (e.g. the World Bank) or international financial institutions. As the government draws its income from much of the population, government debt is an indirect debt of the taxpayers. Government debt can be categorized as internal debt (owed to lenders within the country) and external debt (owed to foreign lenders). Another common division of government debt is by duration until repayment is due. Short term debt is generally considered to be for one year or less, long term is for more than ten years. Medium term debt falls between these two boundaries. A broader definition of government debt may consider all government liabilities, including future pension payments and payments for goods and services the government has contracted but not yet paid. Although a national government may choose to default for political reasons, lending to a national government in the country's own sovereign currency is generally considered "risk free" and is done at a so-called "risk-free interest rate." This is because the debt and interest can be repaid by raising tax receipts (either by economic growth or raising tax revenue), a reduction in spending, or by creating more money. However, it is widely considered that this would increase inflation and thus reduce the value of the invested capital (at least for debt not linked to inflation). This has happened many times throughout history, and a typical example of this is provided by Weimar Germany of the 1920s, which suffered from hyperinflation when the government massively printed money, because of its inability to pay the national debt deriving from the costs of World War I. In practice, the market interest rate tends to be different for debts of different countries. An example is in borrowing by different European Union countries denominated in euros. Even though the currency is the same in each case, the yield required by the market is higher for some countries' debt than for others. This reflects the views of the market on the relative solvency of the various countries and the likelihood that the debt will be repaid. Further, there are historical examples where countries defaulted, i.e., refused to pay their debts, even when they had the ability of paying it with printed money. This is because printing money has other effects that the government may see as more problematic than defaulting. A politically unstable state is anything but risk-free as it may—being sovereign—cease its payments. Examples of this phenomenon include Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries, which nullified its government debt seven times during a century, and revolutionary Russia of 1917 which refused to accept the responsibility for Imperial Russia's foreign debt. Another political risk is caused by external threats. It is mostly uncommon for invaders to accept responsibility for the national debt of the annexed state or that of an organization it considered as rebels. For example, all borrowings by the Confederate States of America were left unpaid after the American Civil War.

Investing for Beginners - Bonds
When I first started my career, at Vanguard in 1998, we had a fund called the GNMA (VFIIX). At that point the fund had been around nearly 20 years and had never a down year. And was also paying 6% interest. I said to myself, "If I can have a million by the time I am 65, I'll just park it in the GNMA and live off the interest." Well, fast forward 20 years and the GNMA is still a great fund but now pays less than HALF of what it did in 1998. On top of that if I had purchased say a $1 million dollar bond, that principal would have been hammered by inflation over that time period too. $1 million doesn't buy today what it did in 1998. The point of this is not to rail on the GNMA. I still like this fund. But to show you have bond funds work. Most people, I'm afraid to say, don't understand the workings of bonds. The past is literally of no importance today for you calculating future returns on your bonds. The ONLY thing that matters is the current yield. You wil not get any appreciation on bonds. How can I say this? Well, think about how a bond works. A company or government issues a bond.for $1000. It is borrowing $1000. I agree to loan them the $1000 and in return they will give me say 5% interest a year. Plus after the 5 or 10 or 20 years is up, I will get my principal back so long as the company or government hasn't defaulted. I start with $1000, loan it, get the 5% a year interest, and some time later come back to collect my $1000. That's it. Not capital appreciation. You will not get any capital appreciation in bonds. I can not stress this enough. You ONLY get interest. So, inflation is eating away at the principal you loaned out. Inflation is always eating away at the interest you receive annually as that is fixed. And lastly you pay TAX on that interest too! Not much of a winning scenario as I see it. Does this mean you should not have bonds? nope. But why are you investing in them. You need to answer that question before you invest in ANYTHING. https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/performance/vfiix/cumulative-returns https://ginniemae.gov/pages/default.aspx ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.
