How Wall Street Financial Companies Stole Billions From Main Street / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFunny how these stories of widespread and systematic financial corruption are so undercovered by the main stream media. Maybe it is because 'truth is a dagger pointed at their heart, which is their pocketbook.'

This is a long piece of investigative journalism, but well worth reading.

Destroying the Middle Class, Who Stole My Net Worth? / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Part 1 of this three part series I addressed where and how the net worth of the middle class was stolen. In Part 2, I will tackle who stole your net worth and in Part 3, why they stole your net worth. Now let’s zero in on the culprits of this crime.

Dude, Who Stole My Net Worth?

“Thus far, both political parties have been remarkably clever and effective in concealing this new reality. In fact, the two parties have formed an innovative kind of cartel—an arrangement I have termed America’s political duopoly. Both parties lie about the fact that they have each sold out to the financial sector and the wealthy. So far both have largely gotten away with the lie, helped in part by the enormous amount of money now spent on deceptive, manipulative political advertising.” Charles FergusonPredator Nation

Germany's Revenge! Ominous Greece, EU Parallel to the 1930s / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ron_Holland

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The Euro Titanic has now hit the iceberg and sadly there simply aren't enough lifeboats." – Nigel Farage, United Kingdom Independence Party

Another Greek election and an uncertain outcome will likely continue the corrupt status quo in Greece. The Greek politicians on the take by the EU interests acting like most Western politicians and the American two-party mafia monopoly will continue to steal from the Greek people and the bailouts while the nation gets poorer. We are watching a throwback to the Great Depression years of the 1930s in Europe.

Immigration Hurts American Employment / Politics / Employment

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFacts mean very little in any debate about immigration north of the Rio Grande. One such example comes from a bastion of journalism, the Daily Beast. Arian Campo-Flores in an article, Why Americans Think (Wrongly) That Illegal Immigrants Hurt the Economy, cites an economist, Gordon Hanson in a 2005 paper.

Who Destroyed The Middle Class? / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Over the last thirty years, the United States has been taken over by an amoral financial oligarchy, and the American dream of opportunity, education, and upward mobility is now largely confined to the top few percent of the population. Federal policy is increasingly dictated by the wealthy, by the financial sector, and by powerful (though sometimes badly mismanaged) industries such as telecommunications, health care, automobiles, and energy. These policies are implemented and praised by these groups’ willing servants, namely the increasingly bought-and-paid-for leadership of America’s political parties, academia, and lobbying industry.” – Charles FergusonPredator Nation

Hollywood's New Propaganda Movie Hostage Thriller Glamorizes The CIA In Iran / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this year, I was in Tehran for a conference on Hollywood’s power and impact. It was called “Hollywoodism,” featuring many scholars and critics of the values and political ideologies featured in many major movies with a focus on the way Israel (a.k.a., “the Zionists”) are continually portrayed as if they do no wrong.

Conservatives Hand Over Control of UK Police Forces to Labour Gravy Train Riders / Politics / UK Politics

By: N_Walayat

Labour who opposed the creation of Police and Crime Commissioner posts, announces its candidates for the jobs across England and Wales 41 police forces, who will be standing at the November 15th public elections which in most cases will just be a formality as the Conservatives, supposedly the party for law and order have effectively scored a huge own goal by handing over control of most of Britain's police force's to an assortment of Labour characters including ex Ministers and MP's, many of whom were criticised over their abuse of MP expenses, and a number had to repay tens of thousands of pounds and were lucky not to be prosecuted for alleged expenses fraud.

Meredith Whitney: Jamie Dimon is the Antithesis of Blankfein / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMeredith Whitney appeared on Bloomberg Surveillance with Tom Keene this morning and talked about Jamie Dimon's testimony before Congress, saying that "He is, like nobody else, the antithesis of Blankfein. He charms. He's incredible. He gave the senators a massage and they gave him a massage back."

Whitney also said that, "I don't think this could have happened at a worse time for the banking industry."

Greece Election Result Will Postpone Europe's Economic Recovery / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday on "Market Makers" with Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle, Mike Novogratz of Fortress Investment Group said that the results of the Greek election will postpone a recovery in Europe. He said, "If we had the Lehman moment it would have forced the European authorities to decide, are they in or are they out. But we've pushed the ball down the field."

Novogratz also said, "for your children's money you should be short every fixed-income instrument on the planet, or at least in the developed world...we're going to continue to have a lot of tension in the markets for awhile."

Greece Crisis Through The Looking Glass / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy Read: Because in some (and perhaps many) respects Greece can now be seen as a small, and hence comparatively easily understood, 'microcosm' of what may happen in other developed countries going forward.

Featured Article: Multiple articles and other media last evening and this morning have reported and discussed yesterday's New Democracy Party victory in yesterday's Greek election.

Former Goldman Sachs Director Rajat Gupta Found Guilty on Four Counts of Insider Trading / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Jury deliberated only two days, finding Gupta guilty on four counts of insider trading, and innocent of two counts.

This was clearly a case of failing to maintain GPS coordinates when burying the bodies for your masters, and failing to provide sufficient campaign donations to the plutocracy.

Compassion – Killer of Society? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRex van Schalkwyk, Casey Research Writes: In politics, it is the idea that counts. So also in philosophy, pop music, pedantry and philanthropy. The idea is everything. And between the idea and the reality, there lies that vast uncharted terrain of promises unfulfilled, of lies and deceit and of naked hypocrisy, all of which account for the failure of the public discourse and of public life. In short, this self-inflicted deception accounts for the failure of society.

It exposes the inherent conflicts of interest at the New York Fed, the history behind that structural flaw, and the problems it creates in a time of high powered money and financialization, with the Fed assuming even more regulatory powers from a craven Congress.
