George Soros: Merkel Leading Europe in the Wrong Direction, German Bond Bubble / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBLOOMBERG EXCLUSIVE: Billionaire investor George Soros spoke to Bloomberg TV's Francine Lacqua, calling on Europe to start a fund to buy Italian and Spanish bonds.

Soros said, "There is a disagreement on the fiscal side...unless that is resolved in the next three days, then I am afraid the summit could turn out to be a fiasco. That could actually be fatal."

Ron Paul, U.S. Government is Already Too Involved in Healthcare / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This week the Supreme Court is expected to issue its long-awaited decision regarding the constitutionality of the "Obamacare" law. I recently discussed absurd legal arguments by Obamacare advocates that Congress can compel the purchase of health insurance, and the dismal record of federal courts applying so-called "judicial review" in protecting liberty. It is obvious that Obamacare's legal apologists either are wholly ignorant of constitutional principles, or wholly lawless in their blatant disregard for those principles.

Why Democracy Is Dangerous, the Enemy of Freedom / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKarel Beckman writes: People around the world are fighting autocratic regimes in the name of freedom and democracy. They are right to fight for freedom, but wrong to fight for democracy. Libertarians should try to make it clear to them that the democratic path will not lead to freedom, but to slavery.

Crimson Tax Tide / Politics / Taxes

By: Christopher_Westley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you ever visited my part of the country, you would likely hear about a long-standing controversy over occupational taxes and the right of my state's most populous county to impose them.

That state would be Alabama, and that county would be Jefferson County, established through violent, extramarket means in 1819 yet named for an antitax radical who eventually became the third president of the United States. Although Thomas Jefferson would die five years later, his eponymous county is still with us.

Post Sustainable Modernism? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe phrase “sustainable development” was thrust into widespread use by the 1987 UN report of the Gro Harlem Brundtland commission, a group of “eminent persons” supposedly setting “a global agenda for change” in response to the alleged interaction of failing economic development, depleting natural resources and a deteriorating environment. Media treatment naturally went a lot further, rooting sustainable development in a soup of hysterical forecasts of environmental apocalypse, man-made global warming driving sea levels up so far they swamp most cities, mass species die-off and extinction, spiraling oil and other resource depletion, nuclear and industrial catastrophes, rampant overpopulation, mass starvation, epidemics and global poverty. Without explicitly saying it, the Brundtland report implied that unfettered capitalism was the basic driver.

Before the US House of Representatives: Statement Introducing HR 5993, The Syria Non-Intervention Act of 2012

Mr. Speaker: The Administration is marching toward another war in the Middle East, this time against Syria. As with the president's war against Libya, Congress has been frozen out of the process. The Constitution, which grants Congress and only Congress the authority to declare war, is once again being completely ignored.

Panic in the New World Order / Politics / New World Order

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the first time in my career, I see the international establishment, sometimes called the New World Order, facing a crisis so large that its very survival is at stake. For the first time, these people are scared.

There are not many of them. In his book, Superclass, author David Rothkopf estimates that there are only about 6000 people at the top of the pyramid of world power and influence. They are mostly males, and at least a third of them have attended America's most prestigious universities. Most of the others have attended comparable universities in Europe.

On June 1, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said "Italy should dump the euro unless the European Central Bank agreed to inject more cash into the economy". One day later Berlusconi said the idea Italy should dump euro was a "joke".

U.S. Trickle Up Economics / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe political left wing has long tried to cast doubt on the fairness, and even the efficacy, of free market capitalism by branding it as a "trickle down" system. This epithet is meant to show how the middle and lower classes are dependent on scraps of wealth that happen to fall from the buffet table of the rich. This characterization of an unfair and inefficient system has helped them demonize policies that lower taxes (if they also extend to the wealthy) and reduce regulation on business.

Trade Tariffs as Welfare State Economics / Politics / Protectionism

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have found over the years that when I debate with people who promote tariffs, meaning sales taxes on imported goods that are enforced by people with badges and guns, they always adopt arguments that apply only to America's side of the border. They refuse to adopt those very same arguments for people on the other side of the border.

New World Order Blueprint Leaked / Politics / New World Order

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn June 12, a leaked copy of the investment chapter for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was made public. This copy was analyzed by Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch and has been verified as authentic.  This agreement has been negotiated IN SECRET for 2-1/2 years and no information has ever been released until this leak. So why have the details of this negotiation been so secret? This agreement has been framed as a “free trade” agreement and yet out of 26 chapters only two have anything to do with trade. The other 24 chapters grant new corporate privileges and rights, while limiting governments and protective regulations.

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.

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

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.

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."
