Ron Paul - End of Mend the Fed? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week I held a hearing to examine the various proposals that have been put forth both to mend and to end the Fed. The purpose was to spur a vigorous and long-lasting discussion about the Fed's problems, hopefully leading to concrete actions to rein in the Fed.

France's Struggle For European Dominance / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew political leaders do not invent new national strategies. Rather, they adapt enduring national strategies to the moment. On Tuesday, Francois Hollande will be inaugurated as France's president, and soon after taking the oath of office, he will visit German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. At this moment, the talks are expected to be about austerity and the European Union, but the underlying issue remains constant: France's struggle for a dominant role in European affairs at a time of German ascendance.

Why U.S. Politicians Are Quiet About Europe's Meltdown / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the Greek elections struck fear into the hearts of the global banksters, the fallout remains uncertain. If the next Greek election produces an anti-austerity government, Greece will almost certainly make a speedy exit from the euro. If this happens — and it is looking increasingly inevitable — the consequences for the global economy are spectacularly gloomy. Yet U.S. media and U.S. politicians are largely silent on the issue, almost as if nothing were happening.

How to Fix Financial Services Regulation / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Paul_Tustain

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I was reading of yet another spectacular mismatch between bank managers' competence and their remuneration, and this time at JP Morgan no less, I realized there is a simple solution which really could be implemented.

Make the cost of regulation zero - or very nearly - for unlimited liability partnerships. Then let judicious self-interest, exercized by the partners themselves, do the rest.

Taiwan: The Democratic China / Politics / China

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the 60 years since Chinese Nationalists retreated to Taiwan, the tiny island country has transformed itself quite differently from the mainland China.  Thanks to a series of financial and economic reform by the Nationalist Party (KMT), Taiwan got a head start on economic and democratic development, while Mao's Cultural Revolution had left the Mainland in an over-a-decade-long developmental vacuum.

Carbon, Low Carbon, And No Cash / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSTIRRING TIMES FOR SOME

Opening the IEA's high level conference by-lined "Clean Energy Progress" in London, late April, the IEA's deputy director Ambassador Richard H. Jones didn't beat around the bush: he said that global average temperatures were set to rise by "at least 6 degrees centigrade by 2050", and we should all be very unhappy to leave that behind us, as our legacy to future generations. To be sure, getting that surge in global temperatures in an eyeblink of planetary time would need something rather special and strange, in fact catastrophic. This could include the most intense and quickest acting explosion of volcanic activity the planet has ever known - but Ambassador Jones told the respectful audience, including serried ranks of the world's media and Britain's PM David Campbell, it was all due to tailpipe emissions from four-wheel-drives and fossil fuelled power stations. So low carbon was right back high on the menu ! Like the loudest shills in the global warming business, such as Britain's James 'Lysenko' Lovelock had always shilled for, through an incredibly long decade in which global warming junk science ruled and it was absolutely OK - despite Lovelock himself recanting and admitting, also in late April that basically speaking he had been lying. Lysenko had also been contrite, at the end.

Will Merkel Commit Political Suicide or Bail on the Euro? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I’ve noted in previous articles, politics, not economics, rule Europe. What I mean by this is that most major decisions in Europe are determined by political agendas that ignore economic and financial realities.

This is at the core of the “welfare state” mentality that permeates Europe as a whole. The EU in general is comprised of an aging population that is more concerned about receiving the pensions/ health benefits/ social payouts that were promised to them by the system than anything else.

The Axis of Indifference In The Media World / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleForeign correspondents have always been revered within journalism. That’s why covering Iraq or other wars are assignments so many reporters cultivate. Many see them as a ticket up the media pecking order.

Being “under fire” promise excitement, danger and—let’s face it, on TV —precious “face time.” Going overseas is often a route to more visibility and  better jobs at home on the strength of your “bravery/” War reporting can be the macho oxygen of ambition.

The Hall Of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Major central banks around the world are employing historically loose monetary policy to prop up the fundamentally flawed fractional reserve banking sector artificially. As cases in point, the Federal Reserve Bank, the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England and the European Central Bank have each dropped bank funding interest rates to almost zero over the last few years.

Germany's Mixed Euro Policy Signals / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week's media headlines focused on how the election results in France and Greece reflected a wave of rising public resistance across Europe to the austerity programs being championed by Germany, the IMF, and the EU. Less notice has been given to Germany's internal revolt against Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative policies at home and abroad. Elections in the north German state of Schleswig-Holstein just ended the dominance there of Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDP/CDU) while emboldening the center-left Social Democrats (SDP), hard-left Greens, and libertarian Free Democrats (FDP). Those results are expected to be repeated at this Sunday's ballot in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany's largest state.

Does the West Have a Future? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLiving in America is becoming very difficult for anyone with a moral conscience, a sense of justice, or a lick of intelligence. Consider:

We have had a second fake underwear bomb plot, a much more fantastic one than the first hoax. The second underwear bomber was a CIA operative or informant allegedly recruited by al-Qaeda, an organization that US authorities have recently claimed to be defeated, in disarray, and no longer significant.

Ron Paul on Why Bankster Power Must be Eradicated / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it has taken nearly a century, it seems that the entire spectrum of the American political establishment has finally realized the destructive power of the Federal Reserve System. Whether left, right, or libertarian, politicians are lining up to attack Ben Bernanke and the Fed's destructive monetary policy. Where there is disagreement or lack of understanding, however, is on why the Fed's monetary policy is destructive, how it harms the economy, and what should be done about it. Today's hearing will examine the various proposals that have been put forth both to mend and to end the Fed. It is my hope that this hearing will spur a vigorous and long-lasting discussion about the Fed's problems, a discussion which will lead to concrete actions once and for all to rein in the Fed.

Francois Hollande's Freedom Fries / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJumping the Atlantic, the shockwaves from Europe's rapidly changing political landscape are starting to wash up on American shores. French fries could or might go off the menu and revert to Freedom Fries - time will tell.

Already Hollande is on record for a total withdrawal of all French combat troops from Afghanistan by December 31st, is raising taxes on the rich, handing out more government cash to low income families and recruiting sixty thousand more teachers. He wants growth, and to him and most others that means Keynesian style priming the pump - with tax cuts for companies that recruit, and more cash for the poor using cash that doesn't exist. It has to be borrowed, but talking around that reality is called politics.

Bankruptcy Trends in the Post Meltdown Era / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic dislocation is an inherent element in any financial system. One way to deal with balance sheet imbalances is to declare bankruptcy. The most common examples of liquidating default without payment are to petition the court to absolve debt obligations. Personal bankruptcy is tragic, but is common in a culture where immediate consumer gratification is the end all of a private excess society. Business bankruptcy is different because the underlying enterprise assumes all the risks of engaging in commerce. Even prudent expenditures and sound business activities can go sour that ultimately results in insolvency.

Do You Want To Trigger a Zombie Revolution? Then stick to phony austerity / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial news yesterday was dominated by alarming reports from Europe.

“Backlash,” said The Financial Times…referring to an “anti-austerity wave” that washed over Europe in weekend voting.

If the FT doesn’t mind mixing metaphors, we don’t either. But our metaphors are a bit different. What has happened is not a backlash but a wake-up call. It comes as voters realize that the placebo medicine – phony, half-hearted austerity measures peddled by the Euro elite – don’t work. They want an elixir with more of a kick to it. That’s why the leftists are gaining so much ground.

The Great Myth of the Welfare State Disintegrates / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Jack D. Douglas writes: he Great Myth of the Welfare State and all of the lesser myths and lies on which it was built are now being totally confounded by the harsh realities of human nature and finance and economic life and politics built on human nature. Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism, Mixed Economies, Democratic Fascism, and all the other brands of this Great Myth of the Welfare State are rapidly imploding. The utopian ideologists of all stripes of this insane and fierce certitude of impending heaven on earth are completely confused and in a state of total denial and are trying every wild-eyed scheme they can to revive the dying Great Myth.

The Majority Is Always Wrong, Except by Accident / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAl Lowi writes: Sifting the historical record for cases affirming that the majority was on the right side of an issue fails to turn up a single "decision" where this was the result. So where is it written that the majority should rule? In the absence of affirmative evidence, a clever wag once offered the following argument:

The majority is infallible. Because no matter how stupid the propositions decided or the ones elected, the majority was always the stupider for having done so.
