"Super Imperialism:" The Economic Strategy of Imperial America / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Hudson's "Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of Imperial America" - First written in 1972, it was updated in a 2003 edition that's every bit as relevant now - thus this review focusing on Hudson's new preface, introduction, and detailed account of the book's theme.

He revisited it in his 2008-09 Project Censored award- winning article titled: "Economic Meltdown - The 'Dollar Glut' is What Finances America's Global Military Build-up" in which he explains the following - the "inter-related dynamics" of:

Internet Blogging Equated With High Treason in Many Countries / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Pravda

Being a blogger can be criminal even if bloggers do not attack the authorities of their countries. Any slip of the tongue or a side remark can be enough. This is a peculiar feature of authoritarian regimes that see the Internet as a threat to their existence. People may say anything they want on their blogs, and their points of view may not always coincide with the official point of view of a certain government.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI send you Outside the Box each week not to make you comfortable but to make you think. Usually it is on some financial topic, but life is more than investments. Economics is not an isolated discipline (more like an art form I think) so we have to have a real understanding of the world around us. This week I offer two essays which made me both think and reflect. We live in a world which wants easy solutions to complex problems, and wish as we may, will not get easy solutions which will work.

Turkey Key to Washington’s Geopolitical Pivot / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent visit of US President Obama to Turkey was far more significant than the President’s speech would suggest. For Washington Turkey today has become a geopolitical “pivot state” which is in the position to tilt the Eurasian power equation towards Washington or significantly away from it depending on how Turkey develops its ties with Moscow and its role regarding key energy pipelines.

G20, United States and Germany's Diverging Economic Interests / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree major meetings will take place in Europe over the next nine days: a meeting of the G-20, a NATO summit and a meeting of the European Union with U.S. President Barack Obama. The week will define the relationship between the United States and Europe and reveal some intra-European relationships. If not a defining moment, the week will certainly be a critical moment in dealing with economic, political and military questions. To be more precise, the meeting will be about U.S.-German relations. Not only is Germany the engine of continental Europe, its policies diverge the most sharply from those of the United States. In some ways, U.S.-German relations have been the core of the U.S.-European relationship, so this marathon of summits will focus on the United States and Germany.

North Korea’s Space Missile May Trigger Global War / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Pravda

The situation in the Asian-Pacific region continues to aggravate over the plans of the North Korean administration to launch a satellite into space. North Korea says that it is going to launch a civil satellite, although its neighboring states and the USA (of course) believe that Pyongyang is getting ready to test a ballistic missile. The truth will be unveiled on April 4-8, when the launch takes place. For the time being, any political statements regarding the matter are to be regarded as mere speculation.

Iran's View of President Obama / Politics / GeoPolitics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. President Barack Obama released a video offering Iran congratulations on the occasion of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, on Friday. Israeli President Shimon Peres also offered his best wishes, referring to “the noble Iranian people.” The joint initiative was received coldly in Tehran, however. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the video did not show that the United States had shifted its hostile attitude toward Iran.

Obama Continues Bush Foreign Policy on Europe, Iran and Russia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the Munich Security Conference brought together senior leaders from most major countries and many minor ones last weekend, none was more significant than U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. This is because Biden provided the first glimpse of U.S. foreign policy under President Barack Obama. Most conference attendees were looking forward to a dramatic shift in U.S. foreign policy under the Obama administration . What was interesting about Biden's speech was how little change there has been in the U.S. position and how much the attendees and the media were cheered by it.

President Obama Faces Crisis in Afghanistan and Russia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. President-elect Barack Obama will be sworn in on Tuesday as president of the United States. Candidate Obama said much about what he would do as president ; now we will see what President Obama actually does. The most important issue Obama will face will be the economy , something he did not anticipate through most of his campaign. The first hundred days of his presidency thus will revolve around getting a stimulus package passed. But Obama also is now in the great game of global competition — and in that game, presidents rarely get to set the agenda .

Seismic Geopolitical Impacts on Stock and Commodity Markets / Stock-Markets / GeoPolitics

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's no doubt that geopolitical events have the potential to roil markets. And it's equally true that consideration of the broader sweep of history and its attendant social transformations can offer intelligent investors a chance to profit.

So, too, however, is it easy to miscalculate the impact of politics – and even significant military events – on the course of bull and bear markets. Especially in a world driven by 24 hour, live-hype media that would have you believe the sky is falling every time Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hiccups.

Mumbai Attack Setting the Stage for a New Indo-Pakistani Confrontation / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast Wednesday evening, a group of Islamist operatives carried out a complex terror operation in the Indian city of Mumbai . The attack was not complex because of the weapons used or its size, but in the apparent training, multiple methods of approaching the city and excellent operational security and discipline in the final phases of the operation, when the last remaining attackers held out in the Taj Mahal hotel for several days. The operational goal of the attack clearly was to cause as many casualties as possible, particularly among Jews and well-to-do guests of five-star hotels. But attacks on various other targets, from railroad stations to hospitals, indicate that the more general purpose was to spread terror in a major Indian city.

Iran Returns to the Global Stage / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter a three-month hiatus, Iran seems set to re-emerge near the top of the U.S. agenda. Last week, the Iranian government congratulated U.S. President-elect Barack Obama on his Nov. 4 electoral victory. This marks the first time since the Iranian Revolution that such greetings have been sent.

While it seems trivial, the gesture is quite significant. It represents a diplomatic way for the Iranians to announce that they regard Obama's election as offering a potential breakthrough in 30 years of U.S. relations with Iran. At his press conference, Obama said he does not yet have a response to the congratulatory message, and reiterated that he opposes Iran's nuclear program and its support for terrorism. The Iranians returned to criticizing Obama after this, but without their usual passion.

Financial Crisis Illustrates Nation States Becoming Obsolete / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1989, the global system pivoted when the Soviet Union retreated from Eastern Europe and began the process of disintegration that culminated in its collapse. In 2001, the system pivoted again when al Qaeda attacked targets in the United States on Sept. 11, triggering a conflict that defined the international system until the summer of 2008. The pivot of 2008 turned on two dates, Aug. 7 and Oct. 11.

The New American Century: Cut Short By 92 Years / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica's time as a superpower is coming to an end. The financial crisis was just the last straw. Whatever good faith was left after the invasion of Iraq, the shrugging off of international treaties and the shameless disregard for human rights, is now gone. The United States has polluted the global economic system with worthless mortgage-backed securities and, by doing so, has pushed 6 billion people closer to a long and painful recession. That's not something that can be easily forgiven.

World Seeks Geo-political Balance as Americans Remain Indifferent to Iraq War / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

I must take issue with the common assumption that a majority of Americans were and are opposed to the Iraq war, or are in large measure "anti-war". While it is true that the Democrat party winning majorities in both houses generated this conception in 2006, this victory had much to do with protesting George Bush on numerous issues, one being Iraq .
