Don't End the Fed, Mend the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongressman Ron Paul has written a book entitled End the Fed. I have to admit that I have not read his book. But I have read many of Congressman Paul's excellent (in my opinion) essays on monetary theory and policy. Based on the essays I have read, Congressman Paul likely argues in End the Fed that the Fed and other central banks have created monetary "mischief" in the past and are likely to continue to do so in the future. Because of this monetary mischief, I assume that Congressman Paul would like to replace the Fed and other central banks with some form of a gold standard.

The Québec Student Strike: From ‘Maple Spring’ to Summer Rebellion? / Politics / Canada

By: Andrew_G_Marshall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Montréal, where I live, and across the Canadian province of Québec, there is a growing and expanding student movement which emerged as a strike in February against the provincial government’s plan to increase the cost of university tuition by $325 per year for the next five years, for a total of $1,625. The students have been seeking and demanding a halt to the tuition hike in order to keep higher education accessible, a concept that the province of Québec alone has held onto with greater strength than any other province in Canada. The government continues to dismiss and deride the students, meeting their protests with batons, teargas bombs, and mass arrests. The universities in Québec are complicit with the government in their repression of students and the struggle for basic democratic rights, bringing in private security firms to patrol and harass students in the schools. While the university administrations claim they are ‘neutral’ on the issue of tuition hikes, privately, the boards of governors are made up of bankers and business executives who lobby the government to increase tuition. After all, in April of 2007 – five years ago – Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD Bank Group), one of Canada’s ‘big five’ banks which dominate the economy, released a “plan for prosperity” for the province of Quebec, which recommended, among other things, raising the cost of tuition: “by raising tuition fees but focusing on increased financial assistance for those in need, post secondary education (PSE) institutions will be better-positioned to prosper and provide world-class education and research.”[1]

Beyond Zero Emissions: What's Wrong with Big Green Tech / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIlargi: The following is a guest post by friend of TAE (and our kind present host) John Isaacs-Young, who is active in Transition Sunshine Coast, a region located about halfway up the eastern coast of Australia. There's a lot more wrong with Big Green Tech - and the Beyond Zero Emissions movement - than the specific points John addresses here (and he knows that too), but that's a story for another day.

Obama’s Veil Of Tears / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHas a new leader of a great nation ever held such unlimited potential for his country and for the world? 

The celebration in Chicago’s Grant Park on election night after the 2008 campaign was by far the highest milestone  in the magical Barack Obama movement so far, full of hope and equality, across all boundaries of people, all aimed at ending the special interest blockades in Washington that have stopped effective solutions for far too long.  It seemed the nation was united in a rolling tide this young family man had somehow created from pure passion and intellect.  Barack Obama had crushed the Republicans and even the Clintons.  He was the peace candidate for the world.

Bundesbank in Hot Water… Will It Take the Heat or Throw the ECB Under the Bus? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday we discussed the political fall-out for German Chancellor Angela Merkel regarding revelations that the Bundesbank has in fact put Germany on the hook for over €2 trillion via various back-door deals.

Today we need to consider how those same revelations will impact the Bundesbank itself. Already we’re seeing its head Jens Weidmann (also a policymaker at the ECB) taking a hard-liner approach to dealing

EuroSpeak for "Starve the Beast" The Meaning of “Austerity Measures” / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe eurozone is slipping into a recession that could have been avoided. Had policymakers provided fiscal support for stricken countries in the South and guarantees on their government bonds, (as the USG does for US Treasuries) then their economies could have continued to grow while the necessary reforms were put in place. But the Troika (The IMF, the ECB, and the European Commission) decided to make the bailouts conditional on member states’ acceptance of harsh austerity measures which forced leaders to slash government payrolls, services and programs. The result was entirely predictable; economic activity began to sputter as one country after another succumbed to a vicious slump.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York, New York: It’s easy to understand why Presidents, politicians and the military love robots. They don’t talk back. They follow orders.  You press a button and they do what they are told. They are considered so efficient, and so lethal.

These modern killing machines represent science fiction reborn as science ‘faction.’

China’s Land Bridge to Turkey Creates New Eurasian Geopolitical Potentials / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe prospect of an unparalleled Eurasian economic boom lasting into the next Century and beyond is at hand. The first steps binding the vast economic space are being constructed with a number of little-publicized rail links connecting China, Russia, Kazakhstan and parts of Western Europe. It is becoming clear to more people in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Eurasia including China and Russia that their natural tendency to build these markets faces only one major obstacle: NATO and the US Pentagon’s Full Spectrum Dominance obsession.  Rail infrastructure is a major key to building vast new economic markets across Eurasia.

Zero Population Growth No Longer A Shameful Doctrine / Politics / Demographics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe government-friendly environment and development aid NGOs avoid this one like the plague: saying the world is massively overpopulated is only for a few privileged speakers - like Obama's chief science adviser John P. Holdren. Within the Club of Madrid and WorldShift Network, however, there is almost total support for the Zero Population Growth (ZPG) stance of Holdren, Paul Ehlirch and a growing number of influential voices.

The New World Order’s Money Scam / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is not easy for the average person to make much sense out of the current international monetary system. It works something like a poker game. Everyone at the table has some chips. The green ones are supposed to be exchangeable at a ratio of 35 to one with the yellow chips. About half way into the game, the other players notice that the host has a machine at his feet that keeps popping out green chips every few minutes. Apparently the yellow chips can’t be cranked out this way, but the green ones can. So the host keeps on betting on every hand – deuces, fives, anything – and he keeps offering green chips to pay for staying in the game.

IEAs Crazy Energy Futures Conference, We Need $5 Trillion / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a bizarre presentation at the April 25 London conference of the IEA the agency held fast to the now heavily shopsoiled doctrine of catastrophic global warming, and used that as its main plank to put out the begging bowl for $5 trillion. This is the IEA's estimate of what is needed for its unreal mix and mingle of energy gimmicks and real energy solutions, that it calls Clean Energy Progress.

Mencken Was Right, American's Should be Skeptical of all Institutions / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant." - H.L. Mencken

H.L. Mencken was a renowned newspaper columnist for the Baltimore Sun from 1906 until 1948. His biting sarcasm seems to fit perfectly in today’s world. His acerbic satirical writings on government, democracy, politicians and the ignorant masses are as true today as they were then. I believe the reason his words hit home is because he was writing during the last Unraveling and Crisis periods in America. The similarities cannot be denied. There are no journalists of his stature working in the mainstream media today. His acerbic wit is nowhere to be found among the lightweight shills that parrot their corporate masters’ propaganda on a daily basis and unquestioningly report the fabrications spewed by our government. Mencken’s skepticism of all institutions is an unknown quality in the vapid world of present day journalism.

Common Misconceptions & Making a Living in a Foreign Country / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's one of the top questions we get.  If I expatriate, how can I make a living in a foreign country?  After all, not all of us have sizable amounts of savings that we can nestle upon.  In fact, most in the western world don't after they've had most of it siphoned off by the state.  And even those who think they do, and have a bank account flush full of green pieces of paper or who receive large government pension cheques backed by those same Federal Reserve Notes will soon find out that their "wealth" was illusionary.

A Matter of Time for a U.S. VAT Tax / Politics / Taxes

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe insatiable thrust for federal spending continues. The will to correct our fiscal black hole is absent. Even the Tea Party Republicans lack the strength of determination and votes to reverse the ship of state. No matter which party wins the next elections, the deficits facing the budget are huge. Until a total reformation of the way the central government functions, no solution is possible to balance the books. There is no way to escape this stark reality. Expect more gimmicks, additional devaluation of the currency and the inevitable imposition of new forms of taxes.

Bernanke's Race Against Time to Delay Economic Catastrophe / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke's position as Chairman of the Board of Governors will end on January 31, 2014. He is now in a race against time.

(1) Will the American economy fall back into recession before then, thereby negating the tripling of the monetary base under his chairmanship? Will he get out before mass inflation rears its ugly head? (2) Will he be able to pass on the Old Maid of price inflation, the way that Alan Greenspan passed on the Old Maid of the Great Recession to him?

He suffers from a major liability: he is an academic. In the history of the Federal Reserve, only three men who have held the position of Chairman of the Board of Governors have had a PhD in economics.
