Afghanistan, the Long War / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe war in Afghanistan has been under way for more than 10 years. It has not been the only war fought during this time; for seven of those years another, larger war was waged in Iraq, and smaller conflicts were under way in a number of other countries as well. But the Afghanistan War is still the longest large-scale, multi-divisional war fought in American history. An American soldier's killing of 16 Afghan civilians, including nine children, on March 11 represents only a moment in this long war, but it is an important moment.

What The End Result of Fed’s Cancerous Policies Will Be / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday I noted that the “addict/ dealer” metaphor for the Fed’s intervention in the markets was in fact not accurate and that the Fed’s actions would be more appropriately described as permitted cancerous beliefs to spread throughout the financial system, thereby killing Democratic Capitalism which is the basis of the capital markets.

Today I’m going to explain what the “final outcome” for this process will be. The short version is what happens to a cancer patient who allows the disease to spread unchecked (death).

The Greeks, the Fed, And Sovereignty / Politics / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial woes of Greece have been fairly well documented over the past year and a half that is for sure. The deduction many analysts, myself included, that the country would end up defaulting on the majority of its debt was a foregone conclusion. For the technocrats to pull a default, and then call it a bond swap, was an exercise in semantics that even Roget himself would have been proud of. The very idea of calling it a swap presents the idea that the bondholders got something other than an empty bag, when an empty bag is exactly what they got.

Mounting Political Dissent in the Land of the Sheeple / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe long and sometime turbulent drama of political dissent in America is a continued theme in history of the country. Born out of a revolution and based on social principles of self-determination, the nation rustles with the internal conflict between individual liberty and the power of tyrannical elites. This struggle is the natural condition in any nation. How a society treats dissenters is a primary test for any government. Most states fail this assessment miserably. America's tolerance for peaceful dissent is in jeopardy, not solely from the current despotic regime in power, but from the flock of hungry government parasites that graze upon the public benefit programs that herd citizens into a crowd controlled environment.

Obama: U.S. Energy Future Depends on Rare Earth Metals / Politics / Metals & Mining

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Will a near-monopoly in rare earth metals do for China what oil did for Saudi Arabia?

Not if the U.S. government has anything to say about it.

President Barack Obama made that clear last week when he joined the European Union and the Japanese government in filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) about China's manipulation of the global market in rare earth metals.

Goldman's God Problem on Executive Pay / Politics / Banking Stocks

By: EconMatters

In addition to suffering a one-day $2 billion loss in market value on March 12 bestowed upon by the Goldman Letter at New York Times on March 12 , Goldman also has to deal with God problem regarding executive compensation packages as well.

According to Reuters, in the past two years, a group of religious institutions that hold Goldman shares, including the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, has been successful in getting its proposal requiring Goldman to conduct an independent examination of whether Goldman's executive pay levels were appropriate taken into regular shareholders' meetings.

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov  web site on Friday, March 16, 2012, under the name National Defense Resources Preparedness.  In a nutshell, it's the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for "National Defense", whatever they decide that is.    It's peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it's for "Preparedness".  A copy of the entire order follows the end of this story.

Mainstream Media Coverup of the U.S. Military Afghanistan Massacre / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn all US war theaters, troops commit unspeakable atrocities. Trained to dehumanize enemies, their mission involves killing, destruction, and much more.

 

Local treasures are looted. Women are raped. Civilians are treated like combatants. Children are indiscriminately harmed like adults. Prisoners are tortured. Mutilations are common. Crimes of war and against humanity are institutionalized.

UK Coalition Government to Scrap 50% Tax Rate to Spark Economic Growth / Politics / Taxes

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Conservative party media spin machine has gone into over drive by spreading the word that George Osbourne will cut the top rate of income tax from 50% to 40% in next weeks budget in an attempt at reversing some of the damage done by the last Labour government that all but destroyed large swathes of the private sector in favour of pumping resources into the Labour voter friendly unproductive public sector.

Agent-Based Modeling and the Occupy Wall Street Movement / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere at TAE, we like to apply the insights of systems theory to our global economic, financial, energy and environmental systems and think in big picture terms about how these systems evolve and interact. That is why, for example, we don't look at the S&P500 breaching 1400 as a sign that every major economic issue has been resolved and it is all smooth sailing from here. Indeed, the big picture perspective tells us it's only a matter of time, most likely weeks, before old issues in new disguises crop up and fear grips the collective once again.

Washington Gridlock, No One Is Willing to Pay the Political Price to Cut Spending / Politics / US Politics

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Editors of The Casey Report, Casey Research: The first session of this 112th Congress was spent with Democrats and Republicans at loggerheads over the debt ceiling, taxes, spending cuts, the deficit super committee, appropriations bills and finally the extension of unemployment compensation and a two-month extension of the payroll tax cut. Standard and Poor's downgrade of the United States' federal debt was due in part to all the haggling over how, and actually whether, to reduce the debt.

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDana Gabriel writes: Through a series of bilateral meetings, U.S. and Canadian officials are busy working out the details of the perimeter security action plan. This includes a recent joint crime forum which dealt with border and law enforcement issues. These various discussions are part of the implementation process which when finished would bring about the complete transformation of the northern border and another step closer in the creation of a fully integrated North American security perimeter.
