U.S. Debt De-Crowning the Dollar / Politics / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

The gradual erosion of the U.S. dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency has been greatly hastened of late. This is due not only to the perpetual gridlock in D.C., but also our government’s inability to articulate a strategy to deal with the $126 trillion of unfunded liabilities.

Zero Population Growth – A Forgotten Fear / Politics / Demographics

By: Andrew_McKillop

EXIT THE HYSTERICS
Government-friendly environment and development aid NGOs avoid this one like the plague: they never say the world is massively overpopulated and left that role for a few privileged hard line speakers - like Obama's chief science adviser John P. Holdren, guru ecologist Paul Ehrlich, the Club of Rome and its WorldShift Network, and a few others. Occasionally, reputed organizations like Britain's Royal Society joined in with arguments for ZPG, calling for a “radical rebalancing" of global consumption, to go hand-in-hand with linked and stronger attempts to curb the rapid rise of global population.

What the U.S. Debt Ceiling Deal Did Not Fix / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Garrett Baldwin writes: While everyone in Washington right now is patting themselves on the back in the wake of Wednesday's debt ceiling deal, the reality is that it does little to address the nation's deepest budget issues.

True, the Band-Aid agreement will fund the U.S. government through Jan. 15 and lift the debt limit through Feb. 7.

But all it means is that Congress has just 90 days to take meaningful action on the problems that led to the government shutdown and debt ceiling fight in the first place.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Deal: DC Wins, Americans Lose / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Washington, DC, Wall Street, and central bankers around the world rejoiced this week as Congress came to an agreement to end the government shutdown and lift the debt ceiling. The latest spending-and-debt deal was negotiated by Congressional leaders behind closed doors, and was rushed through Congress before most members had time to read it. Now that the bill is passed, we can see that it is a victory for the political class and special interests, but a defeat for the American people.

Exorbitant Privilege, Deficit and Debt Damaging the US Brand / Politics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

There is no doubt that the image – what I will refer to in this letter as the "brand" – of the United States has been damaged in the past month. But what are the actual costs? And what does it matter to the average citizen? Can the US recover its tarnished image and go on about business as usual? Is the recent dysfunction in Washington DC now behind us, or is it destined to become part of a bleaker landscape? In this week's letter we try to answer those questions and more, as I step firmly into politically incorrect territory and offer a little advice to my junior senator from Texas. If nothing else, we will look at the problems we face in a different light.

US Happily Digs its Own and Dollar's Grave / Politics / US Debt

By: Pravda

Yet another budget crisis in the U.S. has made many people around the world, even those, who consider themselves indifferent to the vicissitudes of political controversy and global economic problems, wonder what is going to happen to the American dollar.

The shutdown in the US - the controlled suspension of most public institutions due to the inability of the federal authorities to finance them - raised concerns not only with financial, economic elites and politicians all over the world, but with mere mortals as well. In Russia, many started talking about the looming collapse of the US financial system, the collapse of the dollar and the collapse of the entire global financial system. Some even said that the United States may switch to the new currency - amero - to get rid of the incredible national debt, which has exceeded the level of 17 trillion dollars.

Federal Reserve Mounting Policy Failures / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Casey_Research

By Lacy H. Hunt, Ph.D., Economist

The Fed's capabilities to engineer changes in economic growth and inflation are asymmetric. It has been historically documented that central bank tools are well suited to fight excess demand and rampant inflation; the Fed showed great resolve in containing the fast price increases in the aftermath of World Wars I and II and the Korean War. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, rampant inflation was again brought under control by a determined and persistent Federal Reserve.

Winter In America Gets Colder : Why We Choose Poverty / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Broadly speaking, if we look at what has happened to the world's rich economies from 1945 to today, we can say that in the first 30 years, 1945-1975, real wealth - as expressed in standard of living - across the board, for the vast majority of people, increased.

Over the next 30 years, 1975-2005, the standard of living still seemed to rise, but if we look behind the numbers and between the lines, we see that much of the wealth increase over that period is illusional, because it was increasingly based on credit, i.e. it was borrowed from the future, while at the same time, the costs of "really big ticket" items such as education and health care were moved away from governments and towards citizens, where they began an unstoppable ascent (and we paid for them with credit).

The Government Is Broke and They’re Coming For Your Cash - Video / Politics / US Debt

By: Chris_Kitze

The Government is agreeing on the debt ceiling. This does not fix the problem its a temporary fix. The Government is pushing the banks outside of the country to report the money in foreign accounts. Chase is no longer allowing wire transfers out of the country. The housing market is still declining and mortgage companies are laying off thousands of people. The next event will bring the world to its knees.

Temporary U.S. Government Shutdown is Over, But Permanent Closure Would Not be So Bad / Politics / US Politics

By: Casey_Research

By Doug Casey, Chairman

(Interviewed by Louis James, Casey Research)

The government shutdown is over, and many Americans are breathing a sigh of relief. But there's no reason to take a shutdown seriously in the first place, said famous resource speculator and libertarian freethinker Doug Casey in a recent interview—it was just a paid holiday for useless public employees anyway…

What is a Dictator? / Politics / Social Issues

By: STRATFOR

Robert D. Kaplan writes: What is a dictator, or an authoritarian? I'll bet you think you know. But perhaps you don't. Sure, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong were dictators. So were Saddam Hussein and both Hafez and Bashar al Assad. But in many cases the situation is not that simple and stark. In many cases the reality -- and the morality -- of the situation is far more complex.

Obamacare's Creeping Terror on the Middle Class / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Garrett Baldwin writes: Over the weekend, the San Francisco Chronicle delivered a stunning message that discourages and demotivates American workers from earning more income and promotes greater government dependency.

It's all thanks to sloppy incentives created by the Affordable Healthcare Act.

The Chronicle reported that Karen Pollitz, a senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation, said last week that workers in California should consider reducing their 2014 income and work hours in order to qualify for Obamacare subsidies.

U.S. Debt Ponzi Scheme Ceiling Crisis Deal - Smoke and Mirrors for America's Debt Slaves / Politics / US Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

U.S. politicians of the Donkey and Elephant parties during the past few weeks have been busy pounding their chests on the propaganda air-waves to give the illusion of much self worth and power in the faces of the american people when the reality was assured long before the current round of debt crisis play acting ever began in the mainstream media that the debt ceiling WOULD be raised as it ALWAYS has been (about 100 times since it was introduced in 1939)! Meanwhile the mainstream press will continue to pump the story at length on how close the U.S. came towards a debt default and continue to do so in the run up to when the U.S. is next due to hit its revised debt ceiling by early Feb 2014.

Who Controls Libyan Oil? / Politics / Crude Oil

LIBYA'S BEEFEATER LEAGUE DEFENDS THE OIL
In August, Reuters reported from Tripoli:  “Libya will use all means, including military force if necessary, to prevent striking security guards at the country’s main ports from selling its crude oil independently, Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said”. Zeidan called the security guards a critical challenge to the government, because strikes at Libya’s two largest ports have pushed production and exports to their lowest levels since the civil war that ousted 42-year veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

General Keith Alexander has admitted that Edward J. Snowden's revelations have caused “significant and irreversible damage” to the US's national security, and that national governments and terrorist organizations now know how to get around US spying.

He seems to underestimate the real damage: The NSA revelations are but another smear against brand USA in the global psyche, having done potentially as much damage as the Middle East wars started under President George W. Bush.

U.S. Government Shutdown Solution: Opt Out of Tyranny / Politics / US Politics

By: David_DeGraw

“All countries are basically social arrangements, accommodations to changing circumstances. No matter how permanent and even sacred they may seem at any one time, in fact they are all artificial and temporary.” – Strobe Talbott

How much longer are we going to protest and post online reports, rants, videos and launch campaigns that will hopefully raise awareness on issue after issue, problem after problem, as the situation gets worse? How much longer are we going to just keep crying about the need for change and pleading with puppet politicians in hopes that they will care about anything other than what their top campaign contributors think? At what point are we going to start acting like free and responsible citizens and stop acting like disgruntled servants waiting for our masters to save us and do the right thing?

IMF Proposal to Tax Bank Deposits / Politics / Banksters

By: BATR

A report by Agence France-Presse, the International Monetary Fund strongly suggests countries tax the rich to fix deficit, is a caveat for a bigger risk. "The IMF has set off shockwaves this week in Washington by suggesting countries fight budget deficits by raising taxes. In its Fiscal Monitor report, subtitled "Taxing Times", the Fund advanced the idea of taxing the highest-income people and their assets to reinforce the legitimacy of spending cuts and fight against growing income inequalities."
