Fukushima is Not Safe, Time to Panic! / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIan Goddard writes: Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the Japanese Government raised the level of allowable radiation from 1 to 20 millisieverts per year. This so-called “safety level” is the cut-off criterion for compensation for damage to private property incurred by fallout contamination. The reasoning is: if doses below 20 millisieverts per year are safe, then property holders have no grounds upon which to file suit for compensation and the perpetrators are thereby shielded from liability.

Third Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street’, “Why I Occupy” Show in Times Square / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York, December 17 2001: Saturday marked the third month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. It was also Bradley Manning’s Birthday. It was one of those days that confirmed the validity of the chant: “All Day, All Week, Occupy Wall Street”.

Ok, maybe, it wasn’t a whole week but felt like a week in one day.

The End of Canada as a Sovereign Nation State, the path Towardw the North American Union / Politics / Canada

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Corbett writes: When Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and US President Barack Obama announced the much-anticipated border agreement between the two countries at a press conference in Washington last week, those mainstream media outlets that bothered to cover the story at all compensated for the lack of details about what specifically is going to be accomplished by this accord by focusing on issues of no practical significance.

The Way to Occupy a Bank is to Own One / Politics / US Politics

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe campaign to "move your money" has gotten a groundswell of support. Having greater impact would be to "move our money" -- move our local government revenues out of Wall Street banks into our own publicly-owned banks.

Occupy Wall Street has been both criticized and applauded for not endorsing any official platform.  But there are unofficial platforms, including one titled the 99% Declaration which calls for a "National General Assembly" to convene on July 4, 2012 in Philadelphia.  The 99% Declaration seeks everything from reining in the corporate state to ending the Fed to eliminating censorship of the Internet.  But none of these demands seems to go to the heart of what prompted Occupiers to camp out on Wall Street in the first place – a corrupt banking system that serves the 1% at the expense of the 99%.  To redress that, we need a banking system that serves the 99%.

Bankers Rule the World, The Network of Global Corporate Control / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBankers rule the world. A new Swiss Federal Institute of Technology study says so. Written by Stefania Vitali, James Glattfelder and Stefano Battiston, it's titled "The network of global corporate control," saying:

"We find that transnational corporations from a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic 'super-entity' that raises new important issues both for researches and policy makers."

Is Operation GLADIO on the rebound in Europe? / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThirty years ago, Europeans were caught in a seemingly endless story of domestic terror which claimed thousands of lives over a generation – a disturbing epoche which was instrumental in bringing forth the modern domestic police state we have today. We now know that the wave of terror which swept across Europe then was run by a state-sponsored terror program called Operation G.L.A.D.I.O., organised by NATO and funded in part by the CIA.

German Solar Dreams - So Long Or Goodbye ? / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIS IT SO LONG - OR GOODBYE ?
Solon SE, in 1998, was Germany’s first listed solar photovoltaic producer. In Frankfurt trading on 15 December it stock price fell 46 percent to around 50 euro cents. The Berlin-based company had filed for insolvency after failing to reach an “arrangement” with banks and investors, its brief statement said. This was the first publicly traded German solar cell-making company to file for insolvency. Analysts noted the company had failed to cut costs fast enough and was unlikely to repay a 275-million-euro loan from Deutsche Bank and a group of seven German banks, due by 31 December.

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCanada has announced its intention to withdraw from the Kyoto treaty on greenhouse gas emissions (GGE), sandbagging the other signatories to the convention.

U.S. Exposure to Europe - Unknowns Unknowns / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"[T]here are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - there are things we do not know we don't know." - Former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, February 12, 2002

There were reasons to criticize Donald Rumsfeld's turn as Defense Secretary but this was not one of them, even though the media quoted and re-quoted this most sensible approach to uncertainty as proof of a retarded intellect.

The New Left - Neoliberal Climate Alliance / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCHOMSKY WRONG AGAIN
Strange causes throw together strange bedfellows with even stranger offspring. Naom Chomsky, always sure to place himself with the angriest-seeming part of the New Left crowd, has no problem ranging himself alongside the Climate Crazies despite them receiving yet another big setback, in Durban. Packing their suntan lotions and picking up their air tickets somebody else paid for, the overfed bureaucrats and overpaid lobbyists who profit from climate craziness failed in their quest to suck more subsidies and garner more public cash for their Great Cause, once again. The strange band of New Left climate radicals is breaking up, as its upstream cause fed by one-liner slogans and Rentacrowd Science fails to amuse, beguile, fool or provoke like it used to. Climate change is a big yawn.

Subject Banks to the Free Market or Turn Them into Utilities / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

The problem with that is, banks really aren't subject to free market forces that would naturally eliminate insolvent and inefficient institutions. The result is more bad banking.

Did Ron Paul Slay The Gold Bull? / Politics / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Brady_Willett

The price of gold was off by nearly 5% yesterday, with comex gold losing over $97 an ounce on an intraday basis.  This price collapse is comparable, in percentage terms, to the carnage seen in other precious metals, but well beyond the damage seen in other ‘risk’ areas of the marketplace (i.e. commodities and equities). Accordingly, the question deserves to be asked: why is gold outpacing the recent decline in other ‘risk’ areas of the marketplace?

Higgs Boson God Particle Mass for the Inflationary Universe Explained, Economic Implications / Politics / Technology

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Higgs Boson so called "God" particle has been purported to have been discovered just prior to the Christmas holidays by scientists at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It might seem rather odd that scientists have introduced 'god' into the equation, however given by the media coverage that was never apparent during the discovery of the other elementary particles, the "God" particle has proved a useful media marketing tool to promote the discovery to the mainstream media and the ordinary masses.

The Higgs Boson, Global Warming And Green Energy / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoinciding with the failed climate talks in Durban, mainly due to the European Union's bizarre and kamikaze negotiating stance, another European marvel of government spending - CERN - announced its research teams could or might have glimpsed the Higgs boson. They say it might well exist. Only might exist, note it well. Most people neither know or care what a Higgs boson might be but it should have a partner thing out there in the Universe, called the graviton. The boson would "explain" mass while the graviton would "explain" gravity, in the same way other government-paid scientists and the politicians who pay them say that CO2 "explains" climate change, which exists, but their explanation needs global warming - which might not exist.

The president’s strategists are conducting a cynical propaganda operation aimed at simultaneously identifying him with the military and pushing the claim that the pullout is a fulfillment of his 2008 campaign promises.
