Ron Paul on U.S. State Assassinating American Citizens Sets Dangerous Precedent / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.

The US Empire: A Tragic Comedy in Three Acts / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

What a delight it is to have an empire!

Do the Swiss get to send out drones to kill people they don’t know in countries they’ve never been? No! The poor yodelers go around with long faces and visit their shrinks. Americans have troops in 170 countries. Where are the Swiss? Only in Switzerland and the Vatican. Alas, they will never know the joys of nation building and people murdering.

China Currency Bill: Politics vs. Economics, Is the U.S. ready for a global trade war? / Politics / US Politics

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest move on China politics at Washington is the China currency bill, due at the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Oct. 12.  The proposal would levy tariffs on China and four other Asian countries for artificially depressing the value of their currencies to boost their exports.

To us, it seems evident that those in Washington have not thought this through completely (or chose to ignore).  Here is how the math would work.

Electric Car Fairy Stories / Politics / US Auto's

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleErnst & Young reports, October 3, that 52% of its market analyst respondents think Europe will be the first mass market for electric vehicles, by 2022, while 39% say that dubious honour will go to China. Many are uncertain on the USA's rank in the EV boom, and often place the prospective US market  lower than Europe, China and Japan. About 37 % of Ernst & Young's respondents think that Japan, with its $12.7 trillion sovereign debt (but only $9 trillion according to the CIA) will strive to find new ways to drive up its debt with massive state subsidies to electric car builders, buyers, battery suppliers and all-comers to the EV spending party.

God, Gold, Groceries, and Guns / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wrote an article with this title on June 6, 1980 in my newsletter, Remnant Review. It is time for a follow-up.

The four G's seemed prudent in 1980. In early 1980, the American economy was suffering from the worst peacetime price inflation in its history. That was about to reverse due to the Federal Reserve's decision under Paul Volcker the previous August to reduce the rate of growth in money and let interest rates soar. This would lead to a recession.

Debt Deflation in Europe and America / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Without consumption, markets are going to shrink.Companies won’t invest, stores will close, “for rent” signs will spread on the main streets and local tax revenues will fall. Companies will lay off their employees and the economy will shrink more. Why aren’t economists talking about theseeffects of debt deflation, which are becoming the distinguishing phenomenon of our time?Theyadvocategiving more money to the banks, hoping that somehoweverything will be okay, as if the banks would lend out the money to fund new production and employment.Mainstream economics and political leaders in both parties are failing to askwhy the banks are using these giveaways to speculate abroad, pay their managers bonuses and high salaries or to pay dividends rather than to lend to small businesses or do other things to actually get the economy moving again. This phenomenon cannot be explained without seeing that debt service is siphoning off revenue into the financial sector, which is not recycling it back into the production-and-consumption economy.”

Eurozone Debt Crisis: Disruptions of Financial Markets Worldwide / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSaving the euro, the euro zone and the European Union obviously is far more important to Europe politician’s and their masters than any national interests.

After having lost seven elections in a row the Christian Democratic Union and their partners in Germany still voted 523 to 85 for an extension of money and power to the European Financial Stability Facility, the EFSF. We would say the yes voters stand a good chance of defeat at their next elections, especially when 75% of Germans were at odds with the vote. The big loser was the CDU partner’s, the Free Democratic Party that under the constitution must garner 5% of the vote to stay eligible. The power position of the CDU could well be in jeopardy.

United States versus China Round Two / Politics / Protectionism

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese government, in an effort to maximize exports and minimize US imports, prints their Yuan to buy dollars. This prevents their currency from rising and the dollar from falling. Then it loans those same dollars back to America by buying US debt.

European Politicians Fiddling While the Euro Burns / Politics / Euro

By: John_Browne

Last week, eurozone finance ministers postponed, yet again, the most difficult decisions on the Greek debt crisis. The assembled powers could have forced an orderly Greek default or they could have taken steps to push Greece out of the union. Instead, they simply bought time until the next major rollover of Greek debt - which comes due in November. I don't expect much to come from the brief respite.

Steve Jobs and the Beautification of Capitalism / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Jeffrey_A_Tucker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe day that Steve Jobs resigned from Apple, hosannas for his life's work and accomplishments erupted (and rightly) from every corner of the earth (or the blogosphere, in any case). He was universally hailed as a genius. He was praised for changing and upgrading our lives in so many ways. He was treated as an innovator who dedicated himself to the well-being of society, and accomplished miracles none of us mere mortals could have imagined. He did more than dream; he acted and created one of the great companies on the planet, a company that has enabled us to live out our own dreams.

Three Reasons the China Currency Bill Will Backfire / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: A Senate bill that aims to restore American jobs by punishing China for its undervalued currency may resonate with a frustrated American public, but it won't work.

In fact, instead creating jobs, the bill is more likely to trigger a damaging trade war with China and increase retail prices for Americans - further hurting the consumer spending that has already been undermined by high unemployment.

The Fed Twists, the Market Shouts / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week the Federal Reserve began the second incarnation of "Operation Twist", an attempt to drive down interest rates by purchasing long-term Treasury debt and selling short-term debt. This is just the latest instance of the central bank desperately flailing around doing something merely for the sake of doing something. Fed officials still do not understand – or admit – that the Fed itself caused the financial crisis by driving interest rates too low and relentlessly expanding the money supply. Thus, this latest action will just exacerbate the problem.
