The Decline of Empire, Idiot Solons and Pentagon Zombies / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat’s Bill doing in Cyprus…?

Markets a big move to the upside. And why? No apparent reason. Gaddafi bit the dust, almost literally. And the Europeans seemed to be stumbling to yet another solution…in which they borrow more money to help fund the troubles created by borrowing money in the past.

The U.S. Is Fast Becoming a Third World Police State / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a P.T. (often referred to as perpetual traveller, permanent tourist or prior taxpayer), I have travelled to nearly 100 countries.  During those travels there has always been one defining moment, upon entry into a country, which shows that the country is what is generally thought of as a "third world country".

Occupying Wall Street, The State Is the 1 Percent / Politics / US Politics

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "occupy" protest movement is thriving off the claim that the 99 percent are being exploited by the 1 percent, and there is truth in what they say. But they have the identities of the groups wrong. They imagine that it is the 1 percent of highest wealth holders who are the problem. In fact, that 1 percent includes some of the smartest, most innovative people in the country — the people who invent, market, and distribute material blessings to the whole population. They also own the capital that sustains productivity and growth.

The Wealth of the 1percent Provides the Standard of Living of the 99percent / Politics / US Politics

By: George_Reisman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe protesters in the Occupy Wall Street movement and its numerous clones elsewhere in the country and around the world chant that 1 percent of the population owns all the wealth and lives at the expense of the remaining 99 percent. The obvious solution that they imply is for the 99 percent to seize the wealth of the 1 percent and use it for their benefit rather than allowing it to continue to be used for the benefit of the 1 percent, who are allegedly undeserving greedy capitalist exploiters. In other words, the implicit program of the protesters is that of socialism and the redistribution of wealth.

How Difficult Will it be to Solve the Problems of the Eurozone? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo we need a law that makes it illegal to push a moose out of a moving aircraft? In baseball, what are the odds of a perfect game? How difficult will it be to solve the problems of the Eurozone? These and other issues are meditated upon by Grant Williams in his Things That Make You Go Hmmm… letter, which is this week’s Outside the Box. Maybe it was the baseball set-up (as my Rangers battle the Cardinals in the World Series) or that I keep getting asked about Europe here in New Orleans at the 2011 Oppenheimer Wealth Management Roundtable, but Grant really pulled me through his weekly missive when I got started, and I believe you will enjoy it as well. Long and short, Grant lays out the problems that we face in a very realistic assessment. I will also point out that he makes me look like a euro-optimist.

Global Debt Crisis, What They Are Doing? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Euro and You described a fundamental problem of world finance. The quantity of debt grows as the quality recedes. The problem of bad loans is no longer just the pre-2008 mortgages, CDOs, and LBOs. Debt issued after the bust is defaulting, such as Greek sovereign bonds, issued in June 2010. Some securities are born to part investors from their money, but it's remarkable the extent and variety of such instruments issued in 2011. The world choked on similar bonds and derivatives only three years ago, many of which are still held at false prices on financial institutions' books.

What Do The Euro Crisis Summit Volcanic Eruptions Mean? Pyroclastic Flow Next / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1. The summits of European leaders and finance ministers happening this weekend appeared to be filled with despair as personal relations amongst major European leaders -- most notably the Germans and French -- collapsed much further. In parallel, Anglo-French relations also deteriorated as British prime minister Cameron became embroiled in a furious row with French president Sarkozy over Britain's role in talks to resolve the euro crisis. The heated exchange between Cameron and Sarkozy was so bad that it held up the conclusion of the EU-27 summit for almost two hours.

Europe’s Bank Bailout Bill: $3 Trillion / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

As the European Union continues to discuss the possibility of a new bailout fund, news is breaking that any European banking bailout may cost as much as 2 trillion Euros, or $3 trillion.  The $3 trillion sum, which would be raised through the EFSF, may also be charged to the IMF.

Gov. Buddy Roemer Calls for Withdrawal From NAFTA, WTO / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have detailed in previous articles my search for a Republican presidential candidate who is good on trade issues. The candidates range from the pro-China Huntsman, to the corrupt and naïve Perry, to those who sound good but leave unclear where they really stand, like Cain, to those who leave doubt as to whether they would back up their nice words with deeds, like Romney.

Occupy Wall Street and the End of Crony Capitalism / Politics / US Politics

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOccupy Wall Street demonstrations are sweeping the globe. Universally, demonstrators recognize that there is something fundamentally flawed with the current system of international political economy. Most interesting, the left and the right agree on a few key issues. For decades, big business has bought and paid for political favors that have undermined the system, rotting the foundation of international free market capitalism. Hard work, individual responsibility and accountability are now optional. Just reward for success and the consequences of failure are now subject to political caprice. A civilization built on essential but abandoned principles is coming apart at the seams.

The Arrogance of France, Sarkozy Fights Merkel and ECB / Politics / Euro-Zone

Historically, Sarkozy's disputes with Merkel have always been resolved with Merkel buckling like corn flakes run over by a cement truck.

Eurozone on the Edge of Chaos: Illusion of Hope & Misaligned Expectations / Politics / Euro-Zone

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial markets appear to be oblivious to the scale of danger associated with the Eurozone skirting on the "Edge of Chaos.”  The consequences of that event horizon are likely to be sudden and far from benign.  Lord Wolfson -- chief executive of Next and a Conservative life peer -- has declared that working out how to handle a break-up of the eurozone "is a very big question."

A Night With Occupy Wall Street / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA call went out over the Internet stating that the city of New York was preparing  to “clean” the park where the Occupy Wall St protests were taking place and that the protestors would have to leave the park. The occupiers were cognizant that this was a thinly veiled attempt to evict them from the park. They asked for people to converge on the park to defend it from the NYPD who would be charged with clearing it.

Occupy Wall Street, A Lesson in Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst I’d like to start off saying that Saturday was one of the most invigorating and inspiring days of my life. I came back from NYC with hope that the young people of this country, with the help of some members of the older generations that care about the future of this country, have the will and the fortitude to sweep away the existing corrupt corporate fascist state that exists in this country today. It was such a whirlwind day that my narrative is unlikely to have much structure. I’ll just unleash everything I can remember.

a. The Arab Spring from Tunisia to Egypt, from Libya to Syria, and from Bahrain to Yemen;
b. Unprecedented riots and looting in London and other British cities like Manchester and Birmingham;
