Taxmageddon Holding Hands While Jumping Off the Fiscal Cliff / Politics / Taxes

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rapid approach of the Thelma & Louise bipartisan plunge into the financial abyss is upon us. It is simply unbelievable, that the prospects of rational tax salvation by the end of the year, measured by every statement coming out of the Washington political cabal, will materialize. Extending the current tax rates from automatic rescission on January 1, 2013, as a stopgap method for an enactment of a lasting political rapprochement, is the best that might occur. The net effect will be a perspicacious downturn in economic activity, a new round of layoffs, rising permanent unemployment and a plunge in consumer confidence. Wall Street will make hay by shorting the market while placing blame on the uncompromising hacks that refuse to cut a deal.

Should the Republican Party Be Saved? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Clyde Wilson writes: Since the election there has been much discussion of the future of the Republican party. Can it ever again win a national election, or is it doomed to permanent minority status? The most common response has been that the party must "reach out" (i.e., compete in the offer of bribes) to the exploding Hispanic population. Rather neatly and deceitfully avoiding the obvious fact that Republican sponsorship of mass immigration is the cause of their minority status.

IMF and Eurogroup Fall out Over Greece Debt to GDP Ratio Reduction Timing / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn article today reports on an apparent disagreement that arose last night between Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the Eurogroup of Finance Ministers, and Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund. Mr. Juncker is reported as having said that Greece will be given two additional years - to 2022 from 2020 - to meet its debt reduction target of 120% of GDP. Ms. Lagarde is reported as having taken exception to this saying she and Mr. Juncker "clearly have different views" on Greek debt.

The Petraeus Affair / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the official story surrounding the sudden resignation of Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus, the departure of the former commander of US and allied forces first in Iraq and then in Afghanistan was the result of a personal moral lapse, unrelated to political or intelligence issues.

As the Washington Post, quoting a “senior intelligence official,” wrote on Sunday, “This is a very personal matter, not a matter of intelligence.”

How Dangerous Is Genetically Modified Food? / Politics / GM Foods

By: Alex_Daley

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlex Daley, Chief Technology Investment Strategist writes: Last month, a group of Australian scientists published a warning to the citizens of the country and of the world who collectively gobble up some $34 billion annually of its agricultural exports. The warning concerned the safety of a new type of wheat.

As Australia's number-one export, a $6-billion annual industry, and the most-consumed grain locally, wheat is of the utmost importance to the country. A serious safety risk from wheat – a mad wheat disease of sorts – would have disastrous effects for the country and for its customers.

Ron Paul In Praise of Price Gouging / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As the northeastern United States continues to recover from Hurricane Sandy, we hear the usual outcry against individuals and companies who dare to charge market prices for goods such as gasoline. The normal market response of rising prices in the wake of a natural disaster and resulting supply disruptions is redefined as "price gouging." The government claims that price gouging is the charging of ruinous or exploitative prices for goods in short supply in the wake of a disaster and is a heinous crime But does this reflect economic reality, or merely political posturing to capitalize on raw emotions?

Hurricane Sandy Super Storm Lessons, Be Better Prepared for the Next Time / Politics / Social Issues

By: Nicole_Foss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSuperstorm Sandy has been a devastating experience for many, and will continue to be so for a long time to come. Much of the damage will take weeks or months to repair, and some may take years. A myriad long battles with insurance companies are a given, as the available funds are unlikely to match the damage and there will be many arguments as to what is covered. The impacts are widespread, but unevenly distributed, as the repairs will be. Like Katrina before it, Sandy will be a defining event in the lives of many people.

From Obama the Stealth Republican a Grand Bargain Betrayal is Coming / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleObama's economic record includes nearly 25 million unemployed, around 23% of working age Americans without jobs, poverty, homelessness, and hunger at record levels or close to it, and the greatest wealth disparity in US history.

Privileged elites benefitted enormously on his watch. They'll get plenty more ahead. Others are enduring protracted hard times. Bipartisan complicity calls for making things worse, not better. Huge budget cuts loom. Social programs will be hit hardest. More on that below.

The Red Poppy: Remembering Armistice Day / Politics / Social Issues

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 2012, we remember those who died in the two great wars so that we could all live freely.  Just contemplate the symmetry and synchronicity of the same hour on the same day in the same month in 1918 when the First World War came to an end.  Never before had people witnessed such industrialised slaughter, with tens of thousands falling per day to machine guns and poison gas.  Horrific, grotesque and terrifying.

To Romney and the GOP Elites: What Goes Around Comes Around / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

On November 6th a large percentage of the Ron Paul supporters (10% of the GOP electorate) in the primary season exited the corrupt GOP voting process, stayed home, watched our television screens (like I did) and followed through with our warning to the GOP establishment. No Paul = No Vote in November.

Distribution of Economic Pain From the Financial Crisis / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jesse

No wonder the wealthiest ten percent feel so clever, and even perhaps triumphant.

The collapse caused by the widespread banking fraud has barely affected them, whereas it wiped out most of the last ten years of growth in the middle class and the poor.

Why Bankers Rule the World, It's the Interest Stupid! / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the 2012 edition of Occupy Money released last week, Professor Margrit Kennedy writes that a stunning 35% to 40% of everything we buy goes to interest. This interest goes to bankers, financiers, and bondholders, who take a 35% to 40% cut of our GDP. That helps explain how wealth is systematically transferred from Main Street to Wall Street. The rich get progressively richer at the expense of the poor, not just because of “Wall Street greed” but because of the inexorable mathematics of our private banking system.

How Obama, Boehner Will Deal with the Fiscal Cliff / Politics / Taxes

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI begin with North's law for dealing with political Keynesians: "When you've got them by the boondoggles, their hearts and minds will follow."

On January 1, 2013, federal taxes will go up. There is no way around this. One way or the other, federal taxes will go up.

There are some questions associated with this forecast. First, which taxes will be going up? Second, who will wind up paying most of these taxes? Third, what effect will this tax increase have on the American economy?

Was Abraham Lincoln a Racist? / Politics / US Politics

By: Thomas_J_DiLorenzo

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Who freed the slaves? To the extent that they were ever ‘freed,’ they were freed by the Thirteenth Amendment, which was authored and pressured into existence not by Lincoln but by the great emancipators nobody knows, the abolitionists and congressional leaders who created the climate and generated the pressure that goaded, prodded, drove, forced Lincoln into glory by associating him with a policy that he adamantly opposed for at least fifty-four of his fifty-six years of his life."

Why Obama Must Align himself with China’s New Leaders / Politics / US Politics

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: We are at a major point in the history of China as the country gets ready to welcome its new leadership group that will dictate what China does, especially with its economic growth, for the next decade. Moreover, it will be critical for President Obama to establish a stronger relationship with whomever will run China during his second term in office, as it could set up how the world looks in 10 years.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSasha Cekerevac writes: In what will most likely be a landmark ruling, Australia’s federal court has ruled that one of the world’s leading credit ratings agencies Standard & Poor’s (S&P) misled investors by issuing a AAA rating, its safest rating, to securities that were extremely complex and risky, and that ultimately lost most of their value.

Right America, "Post-Democracy", and the US Troika / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn many states, November 6 was a good day for blue and identity politics, but said nothing about big national issues of war vs. peace; Wall Street vs. Main Street; Constitutional rights vs. restrictions; Democracy vs. Oligarchy. It said nothing because nothing was said about these issues by either candidate for President or by the media. The debate was over degrees of pain to inflict through austerity, to inflict on other nations through expanding wars, on how to insure future funding of the military machine unleashed abroad and soon, no doubt, to be used at home. Your Street, Your Constitution, Your Civil Liberties, Your Democracy are not subjects for debate any longer - or for mentioning.

Obama Four More Years, A Dangerous World Begins / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere have been many competing analyses of the results of the election last Tuesday. I am still trying to absorb the longer-term implications. One of the more thought-provoking pieces I read was from my friends at GaveKal. Four of their writers give us their initial thoughts, and not surprisingly (for them!) they don’t agree. But the piece does give us a broader take on the ramifications. And I love the first line in the lead paragraph (different dreams, indeed):
