Our Depraved Future of Debt Slavery (Part I) / Politics / US Debt

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is almost surprising that the concept of slavery is very foreign to those living in the developed world, especially the U.S., since it was extensively practiced as recently as 70 years ago. What’s more disturbing about this ignorance is the fact that the system of post-Civil War slavery in the U.S. was not so different than the systems of slavery many Americans and Europeans will be experiencing in upcoming years. Indeed, I’m sure many people will probably take offense to such a comparison even being made, as they feel it demeans the atrocious acts committed in the past.

Huichol Indians Protest Silver Mining Plan at Sacred Mountains / Politics / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

As the rise in the price of silver over the past few years makes an increasing number of formerly prohibitively expensive excavation sites appear much more attractive to mining concerns, environmental and cultural issues remain to be resolved before global silver production can rise in earnest to meet growing demand for the physical metal.

Greenspan vs Trichet, a tie? / Politics / Central Banks

By: ECB_Watch

If Greenspan was the head of the G30, would one then wonder if the G30 is a proper institution to impulse change in banking legislation and monetary policy, at a time when we're grappling with the legacy of the financial crisis? Probably, one would wonder, but, in reality, no wonder, because Trichet is chair of the G30. But then, did Trichet do such a better job than Greenspan? Economic historians are the final authority on this sort of legacy, but, until they render their judgment, it's open for discussion.

18 Ways Government Wastes Your Money / Politics / Government Spending

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Never mind the $15 trillion national debt; the government blew $592,000 on a study last year to figure out why chimpanzees throw poop. That's just one example of government waste described in a recent book by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-OK. His "Wastebook 2011" features 100 examples of needless or ill-advised government spending. It adds up to $6.9 billion that America can't afford. And while such waste is just a fraction of the federal government's $3.8 trillion budget, a country that needs to borrow 36 cents of every dollar it spends should not be throwing money away on non-essential research. Like why chimps throw poop. Here are 17 other things the government wasted tax dollars on last year:

Global Economic Lent / Politics / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Jan_Skoyles

Today is Pancake Day and whilst many, including The Real Asset Co research desk, will be enjoying it, there is still an ongoing economic crisis in the foreground. Maybe its time to give up something other than chocolate or smoking, maybe its time to give up on reckless spending and fiat money.

Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day, is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and is typically the day that signals the beginning of a period of abstinence and self-control.

The European Crisis, China and the Asian Model / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe evolution of geopolitics is cyclical. Powers rise, fall and shift. Changes occur in every generation in an unending ballet. However, the period between 1989 and 1991 was unique in that a long cycle of human history spanning hundreds of years ended, and with it a shorter cycle also came to a close. The world is still reverberating from the events of that period.

On Dec. 25, 1991, an epoch ended. On that day the Soviet Union collapsed, and for the first time in almost 500 years no European power was a global power, meaning no European state integrated economic, military and political power on a global scale. What began in 1492 with Europe smashing its way into the world and creating a global imperial system had ended. For five centuries, one European power or another had dominated the world, whether Portugal, Spain, France, England or the Soviet Union. Even the lesser European powers at the time had some degree of global influence.

Gold and the 'R' Decade: Repression, Riot and Revolution / Politics / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Repression is in full swing, rioting is spreading and revolution is almost upon us. The next ten years will bring extraordinary change which hopefully will be for the better, however, there is the small matter of getting through the worst of it first.

By the time 2022 rolls round there will be a gold backed Dinar, a silver backed Peso and a number of forms of digital currency led by Google's vary own cyber Dollar.

Ron Paul: Overspending on U.S. National Security Threatens National Security / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The administration recently released its 2013 budget proposal, and conservatives are correctly alarmed that it calls for unprecedented spending and continued annual deficits exceeding $1 trillion. But the same conservatives complain that the budget does not devote enough funds to overseas adventurism.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBrad C writes: My experience with a tax audit, real estate crash, rental house woes, foreclosures, layoff and bankruptcy:

In a nutshell, we went from a 4,000 square foot home, worth more than $1 million, a vacation home, new RV, Mercedes convertible, Jeep, $50,000 SUV, 20 rental properties, a property management company and a great full time job... To living in a modest rental house in the middle of nowhere.

Taxes, Pay Up or Die! / Politics / Taxes

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLaurence M. Vance writes: Because I don’t like to pay taxes, I was intrigued by the title of the article by Stephen Foster that I was directed to titled: "102 Things NOT To Do If You Hate Taxes." The article is a liberal defense of the legitimacy of the government (usually federal, but sometimes state or local) confiscating a portion of Americans’ incomes and redistributing and reallocating the incomes because the government provides certain services. Implied throughout the article is the myth that none of the 102 things listed "NOT to do" would exist without the government. The above Holmes quote appears at the end of the article.

Why Greece Must Exit the Eurozone, How it Will Happen and Why Portugal and Spain Will Follow / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral people have asked me about statements I have made that "Greece is in a hopeless situation until it exits the Eurozone."

Actually Greece is in a horrific condition whether or not it exits the Eurozone as the Troika literally destroyed Greece (perhaps purposely to protect French and German banks), by dragging this mess out the way they have.

Ten Myths About Capitalism / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCapitalism in the neoliberal version has exhausted itself. Financial sharks do not want to lose profits, and shift the main burden of debt to the retirees and the poor. A ghost of the "European Spring" is haunting the Old World and the opponents of capitalism explain people how their lives are being destroyed. This is the topic of the article of a Portuguese economist Guilherme Alves Coelho.

Who is Stronger: Iran or the West? / Politics / Iran

By: Pravda

While developed countries continue to print their money as fast as they can to overcome the debt crisis, investors turn their heads to the East. The West introduced sanctions against Iran, but it appears that the Islamic Republic is capable of throwing the world economy into deep crisis.

The European consumers of Iranian oil shudder at the thought that Iran may block the Hormuz Strait in response to the economic sanctions from the West. If it happens, all the efforts aimed at overcoming the financial crisis, will be wasted in an instant.
