NHS GP's Ignoring Cancer Symptoms, Putting Profit Before Patients / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe National Cancer Intelligence Network reports that 1/4 of patients are only eventually being diagnosed when seriously ill in casualty which can have a disastrous impact on their survival chances.

Sara Hiom, of Cancer Research UK and one of the authors of the study states: "Our findings showing the sheer numbers of cancer patients first seen as an emergency are startling.

Fed Money Printing Inflationary Round Trip / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe dedicated resuscitators of the Federal Reserve are doomed to lose their battle with sanity, akin to Alexander Scriabin's fate in search of the lost chord. Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has not a clue where this will end. Our doleful fate is leading staunch establishmentarians to sink the Fed.

A group of worthies tacked a manifesto to the September 17, 2012, Wall Street Journal editorial page. The five authors are insiders; insiders being those who created and benefited from the false economic structure compounded over the past four decades. " J'accuse" should have been the title under which they charged the Federal Reserve with committing every crime under the sun.

TARP Bailout Fraud: Where Did the Money Go? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn December 8, 2008, the Senate confirmed Neil Barofsky’s nomination as Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) watchdog. He assumed the post of SIGTARP (Special Inspector General for TARP).On July 20, 2009, he estimated the $700 billion bailout fund could balloon to $23.7 trillion. Obama administration secrecy conceals what’s essential to reveal. Over $9 trillion is known. Some analysts think true figures may be three times that amount. Only crooked bankers and corrupt bureaucrats know for sure.

In February 2009, Barofsky submitted an initial report to Congress. In the past two months, he said, Washington handed out hundreds of billions of dollars (like confetti) to troubled financial institutions.

Politicians and Journalists Least Trusted by the Public / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Why read: Because in the current turbulent economic times it may prove to be one of the most important things you need to think about - if you haven't already.

Commentary: The Telegraph on September 19 showed ten slides of what it reports to be the results of a survey of the 'ten least trusted professions'. I found it no great surprise that politicians were ranked as 'least trusted' at 7%, but did find it surprising that journalists were ranked as 'second least trusted', also at 7%. Teachers (at 69%) were the most trusted of the ten categories reported.

Capitalism is based On Addiction,Craving for More and More Wealth / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleColin Todhunter writes: It encourages people to crave for more and more wealth and more and more products. Ridiculously wealthy people want even more riches, resulting in war, exploitation and the immiseration of working folk. In turn, ordinary people have been encouraged to take out ever greater debts in order to purchase an endless stream of goods of dubious worth. This addictive behaviour is ultimately ruinous for the individual, humankind and the environment, which becomes stripped bare in the process.

Hungary Says The IMF And EU Want To Make It A Colony Of Debt Slaves / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter publishing Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF 10 days ago, I've been keeping an eye on what goes down along the twin Buda and Pest shores of the Danube river.

That's how I came upon a video from Johnny Miller for PressTV, which is sort of Iran's version of Russia Today and Al Jazeera, news channels that find their niche and viability "behind the biases" of western media, in much the same way that the Automatic Earth and numerous other websites do. Of course, there is no lack of people who declare exactly those alternative voices to be biased, but wherever the truth may lie, fact is that many readers and viewers in the west are fed up with, and no longer trust, their traditional media, let alone their political systems. Hungary may prove to be an excellent example of why that is and how it all plays out.

Can Syria's Rebels Overthrow Assad? / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs rebels attempt to regroup in advance of a new strategy to overpower Assad, and Western powers try to start from scratch with a new rebel formation that is presumably devoid of Salafi Jihadists, the US is calling on third party, non-state actors to arm the rebels in order to avoid becoming embroiled in a geopolitically sensitive conflict just ahead of presidential elections. As attentions turn to the chaos breaking out across the Middle East and North Africa (and even further afield), what chance do the rebels have of pushing Assad to his limits? Michael Bagley, President of the Jellyfish Operations private intelligence boutique, which has adopted an approach that is contrary to the typical "yes-man" characteristics of its competitors, calls a spade a spade.

The Seeds of Conflict: Anglo-American Axis and Chinese History / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"It is this Anglo-American axis (a 'special relationship') that has dominated the Western world for the past 150 years. It is a secretive and closely guarded group of families and individuals with enormous wealth derived from the implementation of mercantilist central banking. In recent years, America has provided the military power and to a large extent the corporate vehicles that have projected the 'one world' vision of the Anglo-American elite throughout the West, and even to Africa and Asia." – The Daily Bell, Glossary

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Legalized Plunder – Why we have all been had, fooled and deceived…. and the surprising reason we keep asking for more of the same bad medicine”

Author G Edward Griffin was pilloried from all sides when his book The Creature from Jekyll Island was first published in 1994.

NHS GP Standards in Free Fall, Complaints Soar by 23%, GMC Sticks Head in Sand / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo be blunt, NHS GP's are increasingly NOT doing their jobs, ignoring patient symptoms, fail to refer even misleading patients that a referral has been made, forcing patients to pay for routine referrals with the icing on the cake of obnoxious reception staff who see their jobs as doing their up most at hindering patients in pursuit of competent healthcare. This is the message from the latest GMC report that concludes that patient complaints have soared by 23% during 2011, that is resulting in patients increasingly being forced to pay to see competent private GP's therefore in effect patients are being forced to pay twice for healthcare, once through high extortionate taxes to fund the life-styles of increasingly part-time NHS GP's (3day surgery consultation weeks) and then again for actual diagnoses and referral.

Daniel Gros from CEPS—'who developed original plans for EMU—warned against a similar scenario to underscore 'national bias' in financial regulation.

“The Innocence of Muslims”: Blasphemy as a Political Tactic / Politics / Religion

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThierry Meyssan writes: The circulation on the Internet of the trailer for a film, The Innocence of Muslims, sparked demonstrations across the world and resulted in the killing in Benghazi of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and members of his entourage.

At first glance, these events can be located in the long line leading from Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses to the burnings of the Koran by Pastor Terry Jones. Nevertheless, this new attack differs from other incidents in that the film was not directed at a Western audience but instead was uniquely conceived as an instrument of provocation directed at Muslims.

Ron Paul - Consequences of U.S. Interventionist Foreign Policy / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The attack on the US consulate in Libya and the killing of the US Ambassador and several aides is another tragic example of how our interventionist foreign policy undermines our national security. The more the US tries to control the rest of the world, either by democracy promotion, aid to foreign governments, or by bombs, the more events spin out of control into chaos, unintended consequences, and blowback.

Twin Demons of War and Central Banking / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe twentieth century was the century of total war. Limitations on the scope of war, built up over many centuries, had already begun to break down in the nineteenth century, but they were altogether obliterated in the twentieth. And of course the sheer amount of resources that centralized states could bring to bear in war, and the terrible new technologies of killing that became available to them, made the twentieth a century of almost unimaginable horror.

Looking at the stock markets one might even presume all's fine out there already.

The Economic Dreamtime Comes Of Age / Politics / US Economy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor at least 4 years, hundreds of commentators have analyzed and predicted "the slow train wreck" of the global economy. Advice they give ranges from buying gold to not spending extravagantly, avoiding the "home equity trap" of buying apartments or houses, avoiding the stock market and staying mobile. What we have instead of the train wreck is “anticipation management” by the markets and a predictable and constant, "reassuring" talk up of the general economy and its so-called resilience by mainstream financial media, from Bloomberg and the Economist, to the WSJ and FT. Their game is to tell us there is no end in sight for spinning out the party.

How to Correct the Course of America / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor every person, answering the question how to correct the course for America, there is a personal viewpoint that often varies upon circumstance. However, the underlying premise is that something is wrong that needs fixing. The couch potatoes drift through life voluntarily removing their involvement from the political process as much as possible. All one needs to upset this tranquility is to strike up a conversation with a stranger and dare bring up any political or social issue and ask for their opinion. Most seldom reflect upon specifics and even fewer are able to lay out a sound and cogent thought for righting the ship of state. Moreover, to the horror of any intelligent citizen, a very significant segment of the public is content with the status quo and sees no reason to change anything.

Libya Was Doomed from Day One / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

People often ask me why the West doesn't attempt a Libya-style intervention in Syria. After all, things are going so well in Libya. Oil production is up. But oil production is merely a mirage, as is security in Libya, which was doomed from the day one PG (post-Gaddafi) because of the way it was "liberated".

Last Wednesday, US envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed along with three other American diplomats in a rocket attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

The Deficit, The Economic Consequences of a Political Decision / Politics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are often told that the current election is the most important in recent history. I think I have heard that in about ten presidential cycles, ever since I first voted, for McGovern, as a young man. And looking back, only about one of those elections actually qualified on that score. I think this election does have the potential to be one of those rare times, at least in terms of economic outcomes. In Thoughts from the Frontline we cover economics and investments, money and finance. We only rarely stray into the political world, and then only glancingly. Today, we cross that gray line, but at a somewhat different angle, as we look at the economic consequences of the political decision that will come with the choices we make in November in the US.
