Retirement Is Death, Don't Do It, Even If You Can Afford To / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral years ago, I acquired a Web domain address, www.neversayretire.com. I had concluded that millions of baby boomers would discover at age 65, much to their chagrin, that their plans for a comfortable retirement had been smashed by the reality of low economic growth, low returns from the stock market, their own insufficient savings programs for decades, and inflation. I figured that I might create a Website based on the theme, "never say retire." I have not developed that site, but at least I set up a department on my Website. So, if anyone types the words "never say retire," he is directed to my department.

Greece Debt Crisis Today Compares to Germany 1923 / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the bankers queue up to get served their pound of flesh, which is all that’s currently on offer, it’s hard not to notice the striking similarities between the Greece of today and Germany in 1923. Then Germany owed billions thanks to a treaty that was made in a French-speaking country along with an offer that couldn’t be refused, back then Versailles, this time Maastricht.

Worldwide Nuclear Industry Woes Deepen / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

The year 2011 will go down for the nuclear industry worldwide as an annus horribilis.

First came the March Fukushima nuclear disaster, with operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) belatedly acknowledging that three of the facility's six reactors did, in fact, suffer core meltdowns.

American Tax Payers, Geithner's Victims of Last Resort / Politics / US Debt

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou may have heard that the Federal Reserve System is the lender of last resort. This is a misleading concept. The Federal Reserve loans the U.S. government newly created fiat money. The government issues the FED an IOU. It is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. But who stands behind the United States government, wallets in hand? You do. And so do I.

Why the New IMF Chief Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers Billions / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has made another mistake - a mistake that'll cost U.S. taxpayers a lot of money.

The organization's executive board yesterday (Tuesday) selected French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde as its new leader. A U.S. pledge of support Tuesday morning secured Lagarde's approval. She already had backing from European countries and major emerging markets Brazil, Russia, and China.

Get Ready to be Financially Conscripted into Financial Repression / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA new financial policy initiative known by the label “Financial Repression” may soon become our worst nightmare.  ‘Repression’ rhymes with ‘depression’ which could be what we have to look forward to as rampant price inflation and permanently lower living standards take hold.  Get ready to be conscripted into a citizen army assembled for the greater cause of saving the nation from being swamped by a tsunami of debt.  Let me explain.

The Dark Heart of Corporatism / Politics / Taxes

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few seem to be waking up to the irony. A drumbeat of corporate persuasion that is noticeable to those outside the culture, and those who have switched off the propaganda feeds on the internet and in the mainstream media.  But the illusion is unnoticed by those seeking an escape from complexity and the uncomfortable in simple solutions and slogans, quickly mouthed as a subtitute for thought.

What's the Endgame for the Arab Spring? / Politics / Middle East

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe many "typical" issues with downside potential that markets have been dealing are still some ways away from sufficient resolution to calm markets. One that has slipped off the economic pages, but is still causing much chatter on the political front, is the ongoing movement in the Arab world for changes of government. Though not as up front with the market crowd as when it began, it is still having its impact on markets.

U.S. Nuclear Accident May Be Imminent at Fort Calhoun Nebraska Nuclear Plant / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the mainstream media guardians have been napping, we published a comprehensive article warning the public of the dangers present at Ft Calhoun. Now we are told that the flood berm has now collapsed after being punctured by “an unidentified piece of machinery“. Our big media stars and knuckle-dragging elected officials should be reminded here that this plant’s rod pool holds 20 years worth of spent fuel rods from all plants in the state plus 1/3 of of the rods that were removed during a recent refueling that was just accomplished.

Banker Occupation of Greece / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomist Michael Hudson calls it "Replacing Economic Democracy with Financial Oligarchy" in a June 5 article by that title, saying:

After being debt entrapped, or perhaps acquiescing to entrapment, the Papandreou government needs bailout help to pay bankers that entrapped them. Doing so, however, requires "initiat(ing) a class war by raising its taxes (harming working households most), lowering its standard of living - and even private-sector pensions - and sell off public land, tourist sites, islands, ports, water and sewer facilities" - in fact, all the country's crown jewels, lock, stock and barrel, strip-mining it of everything of worth at fire sale prices.

Bernanke, The US Central Planner Is an Idiot / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke gave his second-ever press conference on June 22.

Before I offer my assessment, I think it is wise to make you aware of a long-forgotten film: a 1931 movie short by Robert Benchley, one of the supreme humorists of his era. Benchley came on-screen as an economist. He provided information on why the economy was about to turn around. (It wasn't.) The depression was over. (It wasn't.) The recovery was just around the corner. (It wasn't.) Then he offered the appropriate evidence. The people in the theaters fully understood. Once you see this video, so will you. Professor Bernanke will never seem quite the same.

Third World America Drowning in Debt and Choking on Lies / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf a drunk driver crashed his speeding rental car into your house and killed your spouse, you would be outraged if law enforcers took bribes and refused to give the driver a blood test. If the judge then gave the killer a small fine and ordered you to pay the fine and pay for all the damages, you'd be outraged. If the government then handed the drunk-driver keys to a bigger faster rental car, handed the drunk driver an even bigger bottle of whiskey, and then gave you the rental bill; you'd storm Washington, blizzard elected officials with protests and organize friends and associates to vote these malefactors, the elected officials that betrayed your trust, out of office.

Say Goodbye to Your Standard of Living, Inflating Away America's Future / Politics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Pento writes: Americans are suffering from a lack of adequate savings to fund a comfortable retirement. Our growing debt burdens virtually assure us that the lofty living standards of today will soon be nothing more than a long forgotten memory.

Those ideas are now becoming more promulgated.
