Obama Gets Real / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

For most of his time as a national political figure, Barack Obama has been careful to cloak his core socialist leanings behind a veil of pro-capitalist rhetoric. This makes strategic sense, as Americans still largely identify as pro-capitalist. However, based on his recent speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, the President appears to have reassessed the political landscape in advance of the 2012 elections. Based on the growth of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the recent defeat of Republicans in special elections, he has perhaps sensed a surge of left-leaning sentiment; and, as a result, he finally dropped the pretense.

Cameron Shoots UK in the Foot Trying To Sabotage Euro Rescue / Politics / UK Politics

By: Andrew_Butter

The problem with UK these days is that they have an obsession with youth, Tony Blair was a kid that never grew up and thought going to war and water-boarding “sounded like fun”; David Cameron is looking much the same.

Grown-ups don’t start trying to negotiate side deals when their neighbors and partners are laying sand-bags to hold-back flood waters. That’s rude and immature.

Are Central Banks Buying Printing Presses? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

Gold and silver remain stuck in a range as Europe continues to keep investors waiting for the next headline. Reuters reports, “Europe divided on Friday in a historic rift over building a closer fiscal union to preserve the euro, with an overwhelming majority of countries led by Germany and France agreeing to forge ahead with a separate treaty, leaving the EU’s third biggest economy Britain isolated.” It is still unknown when more definite action will take place to address the debt crisis. A new treaty could take several months to negotiate, and may even require referendums in some countries.

David Cameron Chose Well / Politics / UK Politics

By: Paul_Tustain

David Cameron was today forced in Brussels to choose between the free market and the vanities of overreaching politicians...

Today is a very sad day. We believe that the markets are telling us that there is a horrible abscess in Europe, and that the Euro is the pus. We believe that fuelled by injustice, the infection of nationalism will now tear Europe apart - making outright enemies of Germany and Greece, France and Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

Germany Wins Eurozone War, UK Veto Puts Britain on the Fast Track to EU Exit / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Britain will never join the Euro".... Germany has effectively won the Eurozone war as one after another EU states bowed to German pressure to toe the ECB / Bundesbank line for greater monetary union and centralised fiscal management under the guise of saving the euro or effectively face monetary death through either ever higher market interest rates such as that suffered by bankrupt Greece's 2 year bonds trading at a yield of 33%, or ejection from the Euro-zone and resulting economic collapse and an hyperinflationary wipeout of all savings.

Climate Change Conspiracy Changes Camps / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent New York Times article titled "Marching Off The Cliff" (6 December), Naom Chomsky brought together a mix and mingle of claimed facts including results from public opinion polls to advance his own climate change conspiracy theory. He wrote: "In 2009 the energy industries, backed by business lobbies, launched major campaigns that cast doubt on the near-unanimous consensus of scientists on the severity of the threat of human-induced global warming". He added: "The consensus is only 'near-unanimous' because it doesn’t include the many experts who feel that climate-change warnings don’t go far enough, and the marginal group that deny the threat’s validity altogether".

Jon Corzine Dodges the Fraud Question / Politics / Scams

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's as if Jon Corzine's PR machine is in top spin mode. You'll recall Jon Corzine is the former head of Goldman Sachs and former CEO of MF Global that appeared in front of Congress yesterday to answer questions about an estimated $600 million to $1.2 billion in missing money from the segregated accounts of customers of MF Global.

Yesterday and today, I heard confusion about whether or not MF Global's diverting customer funds was allowable and the possibility that customers will eventually get the money back.

On Sunday December 4, the Iranian Army's electronic warfare unit downed the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft which was flying over the Iranian city of Kashmar, some 140 miles (225km) from the Afghan border.

The Rotten Heart of Europe / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo Americans, European problems may seem as remote as they did in 1939. There is a good chance, though, that the crumbling financial structure will not be "contained" or "ring-fenced": the latter being the common description of how Europe had isolated itself from Italy's difficulties. That lasted a week or so. We may soon discover the extent of American exposure to European financial insolvency.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLess than two months ago I was the guest on a radio program out of Fairbanks Alaska called Patriot's Lament (click here to view the video).  Two of the hosts were David Giessel and Joshua Bennett.

David and I had become good friends ever since we met at the recent Casey summit.  Being a young anarcho-capitalist, we had him on Anarchast (click here to view).  Living in Alaska, they had been very curious about my libertarian hideaway in southern Mexico (AcaCondos) and David had made plans to visit this December.

S&P Warns Eurozone, Fix it or Else! / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: By timing its downgrade threat to the same week as a key European Union (EU) summit on the debt crisis, Standard & Poor's is essentially telling Europe's leaders to "Fix it or else."

The ratings agency said late Monday that it had put the credit of 15 Eurozone countries, including AAA-rated Germany, on a 90-day watch. The move means each affected country has 50% chance of a downgrade.

The American Dream In Reverse / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt all seems like a dream now, doesn't it?

In the 20th century, while America had plenty of flaws - nothing is perfect - it was a beacon of liberty for most of the world.  In a century where nazis, communists and fascists ran rampant in destroying life, liberty and property, the USA stood out.  No one ever defected from the US to the Soviet Union.  Until now.

Durban: Deep Change And Climate Talk / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing is sure: world climate is changing. The second thing is that nobody knows why, but the favoured official reason is global warming due to burning fossil fuels, followed by all and any human activity able to release carbon containing gases, and other greenhouse gases. This activity includes deforestation, burning wood and organic wastes, marsh and peat bog draining, cement making, urbanization, road building, agriculture, industrial development, port construction, and several others.

Eurozone Debt Crisis, The Euro Debate Gets Philosophical / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope is rapidly approaching the denouement, the Endgame, of its currency experiment. The outcome is not clear, at least to your humble analyst, as the debates rage and there are huge pluses and minuses the 17 nations must decide upon. But the proverbial road down which the can is tumbling and clattering, kicked along haphazardly, is coming to its end, and soon a rather sharp turn, either to the left or to the right, will be required. Let us hope they choose wisely.
