Bankrupt Britain, A Short History / Economics / UK Debt

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"If we manage to escape national bankruptcy, we have set up a slavery far more oppressive than any previous form of bondage..."

BRITAIN'S BANKRUPTCY has been a long time coming.

"By our political folly we have a put a large part, probably the greater part, of the nation in possession of rights to draw from the public purse," wrote Ernest J.P.Benn in his hilarious Account Rendered of 1930.

Hyperinflation, When Money Dies So do People / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBottom line: "When money dies, so do people." Hyperinflation in a modern urban nation would kill people. I think it would kill a lot of people.

Why? Because we rely on the social division of labor to feed ourselves, heat our homes, and supply everything else that we buy or sell. This requires a highly complex price system. At the heart of this system is money. It would not exist without money.

How the Free Market Works / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Daniel_Krawisz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the great book Man, Economy, and State, Rothbard's vast compendium of economic wisdom, we read much that has not yet been properly popularized. Rothbard's production theory, for example, is quite different from the standard account. I have tried to distill this theory into the following synopsis, although it is by no means the only part of the book that warrants exposition.

Economics is about using our available means to achieve the best possible ends. Achieving an end is called consumption and applying a means towards an end is called production.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS treasuries were under pressure most of yesterday, ahead of heavy issuance this week. There was some follow-through to higher UK swap rates, but these fell back after market sentiment for equities turned negative towards the close of play. Ahead today, the CBI distributive trades survey will provide an early indicator of UK retail activity in October.

Consequences of Deficit Spending Debt Build up in Our Lifetime / Economics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am in Argentina today, but still have found time to read a rather provocative speech by David Einhorn, who is President of Greenlight Capital, a "long-short value-oriented hedge fund", which he began in 1996. Einhorn has long been a critic of the current investment banking business, and today he discusses the problems with not only the proposed new government regulations (or lack thereof), but also the problems with the US debt and our currency valuations. It is a most thought-provoking and fun speech.

The Secret Truth About Karl Marx and His Disciples Part 3 / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Karl Marx: Apocalyptic Reabsorptionist Communist

Karl Marx was born in Trier, a venerable city in Rhineland Prussia, in 1818, son of a distinguished jurist, and grandson of a rabbi. Indeed, both of Marx's parents were descended from rabbis. Marx's father Heinrich was a liberal rationalist who felt no great qualms about his forced conversion to official Lutheranism in 1816. What is little known is that, in his early years, the baptized Karl was a dedicated Christian.[43]

The Secret Truth About Karl Marx and His Disciples / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe key to the intricate and massive system of thought created by Karl Marx is at bottom a simple one: Karl Marx was a communist.

A seemingly trite and banal statement set alongside Marxism's myriad of jargon-ridden concepts in philosophy, economics, and culture, yet Marx's devotion to communism was his crucial focus, far more central than the class struggle, the dialectic, the theory of surplus value, and all the rest.

America's Jobs Disaster / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Christopher_Westley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the Great Recession about to end? This has been the dominant meme at least since June, when my local paper, the Anniston Star, ran a front page story by McClatchy's Kevin Hall with the headline, "Economists: Recession Nearing End as Unemployment Dips."

Sad to say, though, that if such news is the basis for optimism, in June or today, then we are in trouble.

Abolishing Risk Destroys America and Your Wealth / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur willingness to engage in risks drives our prosperity. We urgently need a public debate on risk, one driven by reason, not emotion. Without risk, individuals are bound to lose the purchasing power of their savings; corporations that don’t take risk will fade into oblivion; and governments that regulate away risks destroy the growth engine of their nation.

Civilisation Sweeping Towards Destruction, Economics Needs Moral Courage / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt must be really painful to be an economist of the mainstream today, or, at least, it should smart to some extent. In a financial and economic calamity of the current scale, people naturally want to know who issued the warnings about the real estate bubble and its likely aftermath.

When private sector jobs have grown none at all in ten years, and when ten years of domestic investment is systematically undone in the course of 18 months, when housing prices in some sections of the country collapse 80%, and when formerly prestigious banks go belly-up or receive many billions in rescue aid, people want to know which economists saw this coming.

What Is Money?, Monetary Reform / Economics / Money Supply

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn obvious response to the information that I have presented in the first eight parts of this series is this: "What should we do to reform the system?" This is a nice sentiment. It ignores the obvious: "we" have nothing to say about monetary reform.

Central banking is the most brilliant device of profit-seeking monopolists and oligopolists in human history. Nothing else comes close. Hardly anyone understands it, so there is no organized opposition.
