Spanish Election Sets Precedent: More Debt, and Inflation / Politics / Spain

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Unbeknownst to most investors in the North American markets, the Spanish went to vote over the weekend.  Their votes proved that there will be no end to the European debt crisis.

When the markets opened early for Asian trading, the results of the election were immediately priced into paper currencies, especially the Euro, as well as real currencies, gold and silver.  Commodities took a dive with the Euro, which was largely to do with institutional investors waking up to the sad reality of a continental banking system: you can’t please everyone.

Transformation of the Entire World Into A Big Brother Prison Grid / Politics / Social Issues

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: Do you want your children and grandchildren to live in a futuristic "big brother" control grid where everything they do is watched, recorded, tracked and tightly controlled? Well, that is exactly where things are headed. We witnessed some really bad totalitarian regimes during the 20th century, but what is coming is going to be far more restrictive than any of the despots of the past ever dreamed was possible. Today, nearly every government on earth is tightening their grip on their citizens. Paranoia has become standard operating procedure all over the planet and nobody is to be trusted. Global politicians will give speeches about liberty and freedom even as they undermine them at every turn.

This Spanish Spring is the Real Thing / Politics / Spain

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiles Dexter writes: It was perhaps inevitable given its long associations with, and geographical proximity to the Maghreb, that Spain should be the first European country to be swept up by the wave known as the “Arab Spring”. Protests have been raging across the country since May 15th, and like previous rumblings in Greece, this Spanish Spring will likely send a new shockwave through the EU.

Why the IMF is a Drain on Your Wallet / Politics / Global Financial System

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Dominique Strauss-Kahn's forced resignation from the International Monetary Fund - and the search for an IMF successor - is a blessing in disguise. Strauss-Kahn's term in office saw a vast expansion of the IMF's activities, a fact often used to praise his tenure.

Pro Bank Bailout Christine Lagarde IMF Shoo In Replacement for Strauss-Kahn / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrench Finance Minster Christine Lagarde has emerged as the front-runner in the race to replace ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. She is a champion swimmer, an accomplished attorney, and a competent bureaucrat. She's also a friend of Wall Street who will ferociously defend the interests of big capital. Research assistant for the far-right American Enterprise Institute Jurgen Reinhoudt notes that under "France's free-market oriented economics minister"..."the top income tax rate was cut and, in a frontal assault on the 35-hour workweek, overtime work for hourly workers was made tax-free."

The earthquakes, the tsunami, the meltdown at Japan’s nuclear power plant are nature’s reminders of her power.

Indeed, the challenge itself is hardly news anymore. But a new book, Red Alert by Stephen Leeb, argues that Americans have radically misunderstood just what this challenge consists of.

Why Are We Banking On Banks To A Promote Economic Recovery? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week the financial crisis finally went prime time in the form of a big budget HBO docudrama called “Too Big To Fail.”

It was a well-acted docudrama focused on the BIG Men and some women in the banks and in government who tried to put Humpty Dumpty back together again up on that wall to prevent a total economic collapse when panic dried up credit and financial institutions faced failure.

Central Banking Quicksand, Nothing Learned from History! / Politics / Central Banks

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls Submits: George Smith writes: In 1903, a lawyer in Germany took out an insurance policy and made payments on it faithfully.  When the policy came due in 20 years he cashed it in and bought a single loaf of bread with the proceeds. [1] He was fortunate.  If he had waited a few days longer, the money he received would have bought no more than a few crumbs.

Ron Paul Says Stop Raising the U.S. Debt Ceiling / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The federal government once again has reached the limit of its legal ability to borrow money, meaning it cannot issue new Treasury debt without action by Congress to increase the debt ceiling limit. As of this month, our "official" national debt- which doesn't include the staggering future payments promised to Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries- stands at $14.2 trillion.

Principles of Domination, Complex But Clear U.S. Foreign Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI've heard Congress people and others say repeatedly that the U.S. has no real or clear foreign policy for the Middle East. I think the U.S. has a clear but complex and changing, general policy in the Middle East which we can infer from U.S. actions, but Obama et al. keep using short run tactics and proclamations to deceive the various major powers there and the American people.

U.S. Manufacturing Rebound is a Myth / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk of a manufacturing revival is in the air.  America has, in fact, gained a quarter-million industrial jobs (source) since the start of 2010.  Unfortunately, this is less than 15 percent of the number lost during the recession. Furthermore, after this teasing uptick, U.S. manufacturing output seems to be stalling again.  So it worth revisiting a much  denied fact I have written about before here and here: American manufacturing is in a state of profound crisis.

After The Sleaze Story : The Complex Wake Of The Strauss-Kahn Affair / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat can be called the liberal media has gone into high gear on this sex scandal with all the body fluid details needing round-the-clock reporting from drab and repressive prison buildings and crowded court rooms as well as chic downtown high-rent apartment blocks. To be sure, the IMF and what this director was doing at the IMF almost never features, lkely because it is so much complex than anal sex and therefore very boring for average consumers of pap media.

Bin Laden Compound Assault, How Many U.S. Navy Seals Died? / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a sensational and explosive TV report, the Pakistani News Agency has provided a live interview with an eye witness to the US attack on the alleged compound of Osama bin Laden. The eye witness, Mohammad Bashir, describes the event as it unfolded. Of the three helicopters, "there was only one that landed the men and came back to pick them up, but as he [the helicopter] was picking them up, it blew away and caught fire." The witness says that there were no survivors, just dead bodies and pieces of bodies everywhere. "We saw the helicopter burning, we saw the dead bodies, then everything was removed and now there is nothing."

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Was Tying to Torpedo the Dollar / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's all about perception management. The media is trying to dig up as much dirt as they can on Dominique Strauss-Kahn so they can hang the man before he ever sees the inside of a courthouse. It reminds me of the Terry Schiavo case, where devoted-husband Michael was pegged as an insensitive slimeball for carrying out the explicit wishes of his brain-dead wife. Do you remember how the media conducted their disgraceful 24 hour-a-day Blitzkrieg with the endless coverage of weepy Christian fanatics on the front lawn of the hospital while Hannity, Limbaugh and O' Reilly fired away with their sanctimonious claptrap?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAFTER STRAUSS-KAHN - Countries pushing for a quick resignation of disgraced IMF chief Strauss-Kahn, and others arguing a slower approach underline by coded messages who stands to gain or lose when a new IMF chief is named by a weighted majority vote at the IMF's 24-person executive board. But whoever wins, we all lose when the IMF-run gold laundering and illicit or 'gray' capital recycling operations get known.
