Peacock Syndrome – America’s Fatal Disease / Politics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."  - Aldous Huxley

The Fix Is In: Washington's Planned Social Contract Destruction / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe criminal class in Washington is bipartisan, united against working household interests. In fact, lawmakers yield on virtually everything big money wants, notably when banks and other corporate favorites are affected.

Last December, Obama capitulated to Republicans, rigging a deal for up to $1 trillion dollars in handouts, mostly to corporate giants and America's wealthy with working households almost entirely left out.

What the U.S. Government Will Never Tell You About the Debt Crisis / Politics / US Debt

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, I devoted the latest issue of The 12% Letter to the debt ceiling... and how it will affect us as investors.

After sifting through the government's numbers and mindless claims of "Armageddon," I believe it should not worry you as an investor. And I'm convinced as ever the "debt ceiling" debate is a dog and pony show that distracts Americans from our country's biggest problem.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there a fender anywhere in Christendom that the financial authorities have not dented yet?

They are lost without a compass. They are up the river without a paddle. At the automatic teller without a pin number. They have no theory that has not been discredited. They have no experience which does not contradict them.

Pentagon Seeks to Manipulate Social Media for Propaganda Purposes / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWired reported on Friday: The Pentagon is looking to build a tool to sniff out social media propaganda campaigns and spit some counter-spin right back at it.

On Thursday, Defense Department extreme technology arm Darpa unveiled its Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program. It’s an attempt to get better at both detecting and conducting propaganda campaigns on social media. SMISC has two goals. First, the program needs to help the military better understand what’s going on in social media in real time — particularly in areas where troops are deployed. Second, Darpa wants SMISC to help the military play the social media propaganda game itself.

Why is the demand for “deficit reduction” now being voiced so unanimously in every quarter of official American politics? What are the fundamental class issues that underlie this campaign?

U.S. Economy Destroyed, Washington Is the Enemy / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, the bond rating agencies that gave junk derivatives triple-A ratings threatened to downgrade US Treasury bonds if the White House and Congress did not reach a deficit reduction deal and debt ceiling increase. The downgrade threat is not credible, and neither is the default threat. Both are make-believe crises that are being hyped in order to force cutbacks in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York: During World War 2, the Japanese deployed units of pilots who turned their planes into bombs, and sacrificed themselves in the name of their emperor in a holy war against US ships. They would aim for the deck of aircraft carriers and do as much damage as they could at a cost of their equipment and their lives.

Sarkozy Saves Greece And Launches The F.S.F. / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a classic of its type, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, 21 July evening time in Brussels, gave what looked and sounded like an impromptu press conference but supposedly wasn't. In a state of high excitement he explained how almost alone, or at least with German chancellor Angela Merkel they had saved Greece. The figures thrown out by Sarkozy were part of the circus show, for example that Greek debt, in 1 year, had grown by about 100 billion euro or by nearly 40 percent of GNP, to what Sarkozy claimed was 350 billion euro, which is difficult on a GNP he also claimed as 230 bn euro this year. To be sure, 10 or 20 bn euro this way or that counts for little, in such exciting times.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Myths / Politics / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt ceiling debate that has dominated the headlines over the past month has been thoroughly infused with a string of unfortunate misconceptions and a number of blatant deceptions. As a result, the entire process has been mostly hot air.

While a recitation of all the errors would be better attempted by a novelist rather than a weekly columnist, I'll offer my short list.

NHS GP's, Centralised Healthcare and The Pretense of Medical Knowledge / Politics / NHS

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndrew Foy writes: Like his mentor Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek spent his academic career trying to expose the central planner's pretense of economic knowledge. In doing so, Hayek referred to "the knowledge problem." In explaining it, he writes,

The peculiar character of the problem of a rational economic order is determined precisely by the fact that the knowledge of the circumstances of which we must use never exists in concentrated or integrated form but solely as the dispersed bits of incomplete and frequently contradictory knowledge which all the separate individuals possess.…

Words Can’t Magic Away the Trade Deficit / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne recurring delusion in the controversy over America’s free-trade-induced trade mess is the idea that our gigantic trade deficit, which fluctuates around $500 billion a year, somehow “doesn’t matter.”

Anyone who’s been reading my column in the Huffington Post will probably be taken aback by this bizarre assertion, but it’s actually out there, all over the place, especially in the nooks and crannies of libertarian fantasy land, where any “free” market outcome must necessarily be good and any problems observed must therefore be illusions.

The Debt Crisis and the War Cycle / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Clif_Droke

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany books have been written in recent years on the problems facing us due to our nation's enormous debt. Indeed, many more could be written before the full scope of the debt problem and its consequences have been exhausted. One of the best books I've read which describes the debt problem in its simplest and most fundamental terms was written by one Richard Hoskins, entitled War Cycles/Peace Cycles.

Poor People or Old People - Who Do We Want to Help? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Milton Friedman, may he rest in peace, used to talk about the "tyranny of the status quo." By that, he meant that it is difficult to change public policy because of entrenched interest groups allied with policies that have been in effect for decades. I would argue that opposition to changes in our current Social Security and Medicare programs is an example of tyranny of the status quo. The original intent of both programs was to provide an income support floor for our retired senior citizens.

Gazprom's Increasing Influence Throughout Central Asia and Eastern Europe / Politics / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

The December 1991 collapse of the USSR was an unmitigated disaster for all 15 nations emerging from the desiccated carapace of the Soviet Union.

Now, like a plate of mercury smashed with a hammer, rivulets of the former USSR member state's energy assets two decades later are trickling back under the control and influence of Eurasia largest energy concern, Gazprom.
