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

By: DK_Matai

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;
c. Luxury automobiles of the elite being set alight in Berlin and other German cities like D�sseldorf and Hamburg;

Your Country is Dying... And It Wants To Take You With It / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are nearing the end of the grand experiment in nation-states, democracy and socialism.  In case you hadn't noticed, it failed miserably.  Hundreds of millions were killed in wars engendered by nation states and made possible by fiat currencies and countless more were impoverished by the central banks instituted by the state.  Riots and protests around the globe from Rome, to Egypt to nearly every major city in the US now attest to that.

Practical Approach to Earthquake and Global Warming / Politics / Climate Change

By: Submissions

Vimal Patel  writes: A Practical approach to predict Earthquakes and Record High temperatures across Earth.

I was perplexed with the amount of pointless literature published on web about Global Warming and earthquakes
So I sought a commonsense approach to solve this riddle. The theory below explains why earthquakes are happening in such a great magnitude and record high temperatures across the Planet. I came across this almost 2 years ago and published on web after March 12th Earthquake in Japan.

For Europe, Breaking Up Is a Hard Thing to Do / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone is looking with horror at Europe, waiting for the European Economic and Monetary Union to break up and for the PIIGS to start dropping like flies, taking the rest of the euro zone and the global economy with them. Unlikely!

European monetary union was a great experiment that made a lot of sense on paper. Europe, which had roughly the same size population and economy as the U.S., was at a competitive disadvantage, as dozens of currencies embedded extra transaction costs in cross-border trade and each currency separately had little chance to compete with the U.S. dollar for reserve currency status. Germany — the largest country in Europe and one of the world’s biggest exporters — was at a disadvantage too: The strong deutsche mark made its products more expensive and less competitive in the rest of Europe

The Average Decrease Of Global Warming / Politics / Climate Change

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite record high summer temperatures in several northern hemisphere countries, and the hottest September for over 70 years in some, political and mainstream media defenders of the one and only correct theory - Global Warming - have been slow off the mark. As yet, the "Told you so" reports and statements are low on the ground. Is Global Warming going down the tube, where it belongs ?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been staring incredulously at my TV screen these past few hours as the story of Iran’s alleged assassination attempt of a Saudi diplomat in Washington unfolds in dramatic increments.

Reporters keep repeating the theme “like out of a Hollywood script” as they eke out increasingly unlikely details about this “terror” plot.

Electric Cars: Why Did They Fail ? / Politics / Technology

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnybody who says "They havent yet failed - because they havent yet started" only has to check out the short and born-to-fail history of Hydrogen Cars, circa 1998-2005. During that opportunity window for a wonderful new car which would save oil and could save the planet, only badly intentioned and cynical members of the human race could say out loud that Hydrogen Cars were born to fail. Other people, being politically correct or only stupid, said H2 Cars were born to win. But from about 2003 or a bit later the news was out: it was OK and alright to say Hydrogen Cars won't work. Not only high priced, energy inefficient and overweight, but also downright and extremely dangerous - literal bombs-onwheels made for the Bearded One in a Cave who now reposes at the bottom of the Iranian Gulf, off Oman, by decision of Mr. Obama - who of course loves EVs.

The Seven Biggest Economic Lies / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

The president's jobs bill doesn't have a chance in Congress - and the occupiers on Wall Street and elsewhere can't become a national movement for a more equitable society - unless more Americans know the truth about the economy.

Here's a short (2 minute 30 second) effort to rebut the seven biggest whoppers now being told by those who want to take America backwards. The major points:

The question might strike some readers as unduly pessimistic and others as optimistic. It is unclear whether the US, as we have known it, will survive its next presidential election.

Mitt Romney's Plan to Replace Free Trade / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I've noted before, Mitt Romney has given some indications that he may be serious about doing something about America's trade mess. He's made tough statements about dealing with China which, if sincere, would not only put him beyond the other major Republican candidates on trade, but also far beyond what the Obama administration is doing.

Loss of National Identity / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Good Housekeeping? – An Op-Ed” - I am writing this article not as an economic or financial analyst, which is my normal mode of operation. This article has nothing to do with economic, financial markets, or any related topics. What it has to do with is the undeniable reality that we as a nation are failing miserably in one of the most basic precepts of civilization and that is to leave things better than we found them. When you think about it that is how true advancement takes place.

The Discipline of Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my article The Politics of Personal Destruction I presented the case that the Federal Reserve was responsible for the Great Depression because of its extremely tight monetary policy.

In 1963 Friedman, and coauthor Anna J. Schwartz, published A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960. In it, the authors claimed that the Great Depression would have been a typical downturn had it not been for policy errors made by the Federal Reserve. US Federal Reserve head Ben Bernanke also believes if the Fed had provided enough money to banks and bought US securities the Great Depression would not of happened.

OCCUPY WALL STREET: Separating Fact from Media / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Newspaper columnist Ann Coulter, spreading the lies of the extreme right wing, called the Occupy Wall Street protestors, “tattooed, body-pierced, sunken-chested 19-year-olds getting in fights with the police for fun.” She claimed the protestors, now in the thousands in New York, are “directionless losers [who] pose for cameras while uttering random liberal clichés lacking any reason or coherence.” (Several hundred thousand of these “directionless losers” are expected to attend rallies in more than 650 cities, Oct. 15.)

The Jobless, the Homeless, the Shiftless, Vive La Revolution! / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Occupy Wall Street movement is getting a fair amount of press. The movement, as you know, dear reader, is a loose assembly of the jobless, the homeless and the shiftless.
