Is China an Economic Miracle, or Massive Government Sponsored Fraud? / Politics / China Economy

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory has shown us countless times that centrally-­‐planned, command style economies do not produce long-­term economic growth. We’ve seen this will the Soviet Union, the UK, the US-­since the Tech Crash, and today in China.

I realize that many would argue China has adopted free market policies with its “free market zones.” However, even this terminology reveals China is nowhere near a free, dynamic market (a free market is simply a free market, not a “zone.”).

Cooked or Accurate US Employment Numbers? / Politics / Economic Statistics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor over a decade, US job prospects have been dismal. Since crisis conditions erupted in 2008, they've been dire for millions wanting work.

Since Obama took office in January 2009, job creation has been pathetic. Numbers reported during the weakest US recovery on record largely failed to compensate for others lost.

Syria, Turkey, Israel and a Greater Middle East Energy War / Politics / Middle East

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn October 3, 2012 the Turkish military launched repeated mortar shellings inside Syrian territory. The military action, which was used by the Turkish military, conveniently, to establish a ten-kilometer wide no-man’s land “buffer zone” inside Syria, was in response to the alleged killing by Syrian armed forces of several Turkish civilians along the border. There is widespread speculation that the one Syrian mortar that killed five Turkish civilians well might have been fired by Turkish-backed opposition forces intent on giving Turkey a pretext to move militarily, in military intelligence jargon, a ‘false flag’ operation.

Moreover, a proposal from Madrid would force children in  Catalonia’s schools to speak Spanish even though the dominant language is Catalan.

The Fed's Sole Purpose is to Keep the Banks Afloat / Politics / Central Banks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the Federal Reserve really doing such a bad job… or does it actually do exactly what it's supposed to do, but the average American is in the dark about what that is?

In this explosive video, Casey Summit speaker G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, talks about the Fed's real role in the US economy and why – contrary to common belief – it is not this banking cartel's mission to act in the best interest of the American public.

Bernanke Riding Into The Sunset Or A Brick Wall? / Politics / Government Spending

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA month ago, I presented the case for why Fed Chairman Bernanke would have strong motivation to launch another round of quantitative easing (QE) before the election. In short, it would save him his job. Now, I didn't predict with certainty that he would do so - only the few men at the FOMC knew that for sure - but it seemed likely. Shortly thereafter, Bernanke not only announced more stimulus, but promised to keep it flowing to the tune of an additional $40 billion a month until conditions improve. As I had written, this is essentially the election platform of the Obama-Bernanke ticket: we will keep the party going indefinitely.

Government Dependency Will End in Economic Chaos / Politics / Government Spending

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The media insists on characterizing statements about dependency on government handouts as controversial, but in truth such statements are absolutely correct. It's not that nearly half of Americans are dependent on government; it's actually more than half. If one includes not just people on food stamps and welfare, but also seniors on Medicare, Social Security and people employed by the government directly, the number is more like 165 million out of 308 million, which is 53%.

U.S. Emerging Doctrine of Controlled Engagement / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past weekend, rumors began to emerge that the Syrian opposition would allow elements of the al Assad regime to remain in Syria and participate in the new government. Rumors have become Syria's prime export, and as such they should not be taken too seriously. Nevertheless, what is happening in Syria is significant for a new foreign doctrine emerging in the United States -- a doctrine in which the United States does not take primary responsibility for events, but which allows regional crises to play out until a new regional balance is reached. Whether a good or bad policy -- and that is partly what the U.S. presidential race is about -- it is real, and it flows from lessons learned.

They Cook the Books, You Can't Trust Official Statistics / Politics / Economic Statistics

By: Lewrockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack D. Douglas writes: All official, statist statistics are only about the subjects and categories, and use only operational definitions and procedures to construct those statistics, which are determined ultimately by the politicians who control the state. All official statistics are, thus, inherently biased by the powerful individuals who run the states, so official stats. vary wildly among nation-states and other political groups. In America, for example, there are massive official stats. on the deaths the state categorizes as due to drug uses defined by the state as "illegal," almost entirely those of poorer people.

Elites love government because they control society via mercantilism, the use of public power to enhance private advantages.

Euro-zone Bailout, What Could Possibly Go Wrong? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Fitch has given the ESM, which reportedly became "operational" today, even though the Eurozone members will take years to full its coffers from today's €200 billion to the desired €500-600 billion, an AAA rating. The European (hey, what happened to Emergency?) Stability Mechanism needs this rating in order to sell bonds. Since eurobonds are not deemed acceptable by too many parties involved, the new pride of Europe will start selling ... right, eurobonds, just under another name.

The Great American Empire - Decline, Decay, Denial, Delusion & Despair / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe majority of Americans seem OK with just waddling through life, accepting the lies and misinformation blasted from the boob tube and their various iGadgets by their owners, gorging themselves to death on Twinkies and Cheetos, paying 15% interest on their $10,000 rolling credit card balance, and growing ever more dependent on the welfare/warfare state to provide and protect them from accepting personal responsibility for their lives. A minority of critical thinking people have chosen to question everything they see and hear being spewed at us by the propagandist mainstream media, the corporate fascist government, and the powerful banking cabal that has an iron grip upon our throats as they choke the life out of the global economy in their never ending desire for more riches and more power.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil in New York is breaching long-term technical support at $89.83 a barrel, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. On the weekly chart, that’s the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement of the drop to $32.40 in December 2008 from an intraday record high of $147.27 in July that year. Losses tend to accelerate below chart-support levels from that retracement.

Financial Warfare: Destabilizing Iran’s Monetary System / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleESFAHAN – Dramatic fluctuations of the Iranian rial triggered small protests among merchants in Tehran’s grand bazaar on October 3rd, 2012. In an attempt by authorities to prevent further devaluation, Iran’s central bank recently issued new limits on the amount of USD available for purchase at a subsidized rate, leading many to panic as the rial fell 40% against the dollar since the start of October. Although the demonstrations were economic in nature, many took advantage of the moment to voice their grievances against the political system, with many crediting President Ahmadinejad with overseeing fiscal mismanagement that has exacerbated Washington’s unceasing barrage of economic sanctions. Ahmadinejad’s political opponents also blame his administration for economic mismanagement, sentiment that is appearing more frequently among Iranian society.

Another Phony US Employment Report: Spiralling Number of Involuntary Partime Workers / Politics / Unemployment

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows 114,000 new jobs in September and a drop in the rate of unemployment from 8.1% to 7.8%. As 114,000 new jobs are not sufficient to stay even with population growth, the drop in the unemployment rate is the result of not counting discouraged workers who are defined away as “not in the labor force.”
