Why Greece Must Exit the Eurozone, How it Will Happen and Why Portugal and Spain Will Follow / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral people have asked me about statements I have made that "Greece is in a hopeless situation until it exits the Eurozone."

Actually Greece is in a horrific condition whether or not it exits the Eurozone as the Troika literally destroyed Greece (perhaps purposely to protect French and German banks), by dragging this mess out the way they have.

Ten Myths About Capitalism / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCapitalism in the neoliberal version has exhausted itself. Financial sharks do not want to lose profits, and shift the main burden of debt to the retirees and the poor. A ghost of the "European Spring" is haunting the Old World and the opponents of capitalism explain people how their lives are being destroyed. This is the topic of the article of a Portuguese economist Guilherme Alves Coelho.

Who is Stronger: Iran or the West? / Politics / Iran

By: Pravda

While developed countries continue to print their money as fast as they can to overcome the debt crisis, investors turn their heads to the East. The West introduced sanctions against Iran, but it appears that the Islamic Republic is capable of throwing the world economy into deep crisis.

The European consumers of Iranian oil shudder at the thought that Iran may block the Hormuz Strait in response to the economic sanctions from the West. If it happens, all the efforts aimed at overcoming the financial crisis, will be wasted in an instant.

“We Are Drowning” On A Road To Nowhere: New War on the Horizon / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices are rocketing. Iranian warships are moving into the Mediterranean to shadow the US warships already there.  Propaganda news is growing with rumors of Al Qaeda links with Iran, and, then, less speculative news about real links between the terror groups and the armed opposition in Syria.

As Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi puts it, the smell of war is in the air and on the air, “You can just feel it: many of the same newspapers and TV stations we saw leading the charge in the Bush years have gone back to the attic and are dusting off their war pom-poms.”

Feeding off the Syrian Carcase / Politics / UK Politics

By: William_Bowles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn uncle of mine, a quite extraordinary individual, used to say that he was privileged to have a ‘ringside seat’ when viewing the rampages of capitalism. To which I must add that the ticket to gain admission has been extremely costly, for the planet, but not for my uncle in spite of his lefty leanings. But privileged he was, as all of us are here in the West, insulated from the worst extremes of Empire by all those dead brown bodies.

Banker Occupied Europe and America / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoney power rules. Across Europe and America, governments follow banker diktats. They demand economies and people suffer to assure they're paid.

Money power in private hands and democracy can't co-exist. It buys what it wants at the expense of government of, by and for the people. It never was and isn't now.

Crude Oil and Curreny Markets Instability: Petro-Dollars and the Oil Bourse / Politics / Crude Oil

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral years ago free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing were discussed in the major media. As time wore on the issues disappeared and now it is not easy to find discussions of these policies virtually anywhere as the drain of jobs and companies leave the third world.

Not only have the better paying jobs been leaving, but the destruction of economic independence and sovereignty has been a victim as well, something few professionals, never mind the public, thinks about. If America is to ever have an economic recovery there will have to be trade legislation with tariffs on goods and services.

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Robert Ross, Casey Research This week, President Obama released his $3.8-trillion budget for fiscal year 2013.

Obama: A One-and-Done President? / Politics / US Politics

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEditors of The Casey Report, Casey Research writes: President Obama promised to turn around the floundering economy that he inherited from his predecessor. He promised jobs. He promised transparency. Not only did he not deliver on those campaign promises, he has led the nation further into the abyss on all counts. Today we are less prosperous, deeper in debt, and enjoy fewer liberties than when Obama first stepped into the Oval Office. His own party is losing faith in the messiah.

U.S. Lawmakers Help Themselves to Congressional Pork / Politics / UK Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: For members of Congress, the only thing better than getting "pork" for the folks back home is getting a slice of that pork for themselves.

Pork, also known as earmarks, describes the long-standing Congressional practice of steering tax money back to home districts to pay for expensive, constituent-pleasing projects.

Central Banks Financial Terrorism / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy decree, by the privately owned Federal Reserve, zero interest rates are here to stay. You do not get to borrow at those rates, only the member banks do. In the latest currency swap (loan) from the Fed to the ECB, European Central Bank, as we noted in previous issues over the last two months, that Europe has been forced to join the Anglo-American system. The system of zero interest rates and the continual creation of money and credit. Due to the Fed’s ability to create endless supplies of money and credit it eventually took over the control of ECB and European monetary policy. These policies starkly point out the zero interest rates and monetary policy of endless money creation is the path to be taken probably by all in the system to lesser or greater degrees. That means no savings and that leaves speculation and the purchase of gold and silver related assets.

Obama Budget Disaster, Economists' in a Truman Show / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Stockman's Viewpoint on the Obama Budget Disaster

Passing a Federal Budget is a rarity, especially under the administration of a committed Marxist. The Democratic Senate’s strangle hold on bringing up legislation, particularly a budget, goes without saying. What makes this new budget for 2013 any different? This time the day of reckoning hits hard the first of the next year. The recent interview with David Stockman on the Fox Business channel with Neil Cavuto is an extraordinary analysis why the economy will absorb a frightful tax increase all at one time. The fallout to commerce could become the real end of the world scenario. Take the time and watch the insightful observations from a courageous number cruncher who served this nation with distinction during the Reagan Presidency.
