The Symbiotic Relationship of Feds and Insiders / Politics / Central Banks

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday when the markets closed the price of oil was only 66 cents shy of $100. What a come back. We expected oil, stocks and gold to sink down deep…and not come back for a long time. So far, we’re wrong a about that. People are still sending money to Wall Street to buy stocks and gold.

Where is all this money mail coming from? We don’t know exactly, but there are foreign stamps on many of the envelopes. Foreign stock markets are down. Many of the leading foreign bonds are down too. Investors look at Italy; they see Vesuvius. They look at France; they see Dunkirk. They look India; they see a Black Hole.

Police State vs. Occupy Wall Street, This Is Not Going To End Well / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRight now, we are watching the early rounds of a heavyweight fight between two extremely determined opponents. Occupy Wall Street has no plans of losing this fight and neither do law enforcement authorities. Perhaps those running the show actually believed that raiding Zuccotti Park and more than a dozen other "Occupy camps" around the nation would end these protests, but that is just not going to happen. Whatever your opinion of Occupy Wall Street is, everyone should be able to agree that this is one dedicated bunch. They are absolutely obsessed with their cause and in response to the recent raid on Zuccotti Park organizers are calling for “a national day of direct action” on Thursday. But if Occupy Wall Street protesters want to take things to "the next level", they should not underestimate the resolve of the police state. Over the past decade, the homeland security apparatus of the federal government has been slowly but surely turning this country into a "Big Brother" police state.

Bankster Conspiracy for a United States of Europe / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Davies writes: It's fascinating to watch the unfolding shambles in Europe, rather like observing, from a nearby lifeboat, the Titanic slowly but inexorably slipping under the water. "Expert" predictions are either gloomy or non-credible; either the EU will break up or its currency will collapse, or both. The dominoes are poised to tumble. But recently, a whisper has been heard about a rather different possible outcome. Conspiracists will leap at the chance to say the crisis was planned for that purpose.

Shame of the Euro: How the European Project Lost Touch With Democracy and Its Humanitarian Roots / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWill Bancroft writes: The European project started with noble aims and general popular endorsement. We are not going to criticise the ideas for starting the ball rolling at The Treaty of Rome in 1957. The European continent had a bloody history of war, revolution, and conflict between different ethnic and cultural groups. A Second World War within a few decades of the first brought peoples and politicians to a highly developed state of empathy and cooperation. Fertile ground to lay the foundations of projects economic and political one might feel, and for some healthy collaboration for human advancement.

What Will Happen to Greece et al (if they leave the Eurozone)? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleForest Fire on the Way

As each week passes, the debt crises in the Eurozone become more and more like a dry forest where small fires that have broken out appear to be contained before the next larger fire is kindled. "Solutions" are put forward, only to prove inadequate. New prime ministers of Greece and Italy are hailed as capable of imposing needed disciplines to stave of a full blown forest fire. But even these (future scapegoats?) men realize they can contribute only a small amount to the problems.

YOU REMEMBER the Lisbon Treaty, right?

Rejected by voters in three of the five European Union states to be asked, it was signed regardless by the heads of all 27 member states in 2009, thus "complet[ing] the process [of] enhancing the efficiency and democratic legitimacy of the Union."

Occupy Wall Street, Police May Have Seized The Park But The Movement Moves On / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was strange, after all these weeks, to be on the outside looking in at a new set of occupiers that were there because they have the guns and we don’t.

When Mao said that “power grows out of the barrel of a gun” he most assuredly did not have anything like Occupy Wall Street on his mind, but somehow the insight applies.

Green Revolution Food Crisis, A Deeper Shade Of Brown / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was nothing green about the first Green Revolution of the late 1950s and the 1960s. It was brown oil-coloured from start to finish. World population skyrocketed during the last 35 years of the 20th century, adding as many as 110 million more mouths to feed every 12 months in the early 1980s, before tapering down to the present approximate 70 - 75 million per year. Food crisis remains a real threat.

Europe's Crisis: Beyond Finance / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone is wondering about the next disaster to befall Europe. Italy is one focus; Spain is also a possibility. But these crises are already under way. Instead, the next crisis will be political, not in the sense of what conventional politician is going to become prime minister, but in the deeper sense of whether Europe’s political elite can retain power, or whether new political forces are going to emerge that will completely reshape the European political landscape. If this happens, it will be by far the most important consequence of the European financial crisis.

ECB's Draghi Borrows Paulson’s Bazooka / Politics / Central Banks

By: Michael_Pento

The latest round of optimism on display late last week from Wall Street was based upon the supposed resolution--once again--of all Europe's problems. However, the sad truth is the move upward only brought the S&P500 near the unchanged mark on the year in nominal terms and much lower when adjusted for inflation.

Ron Paul on European Debt Crisis Threatening the U.S. Dollar / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The global economic situation is becoming more dire every day. Approximately half of all US banks have significant exposure to the debt crisis in Europe. Much more dangerous for the US taxpayer is the dollar's status as reserve currency for the world, and the US Federal Reserve's status as the lender of last resort. As we've learned in recent disclosures, this has not only benefitted companies like AIG, the auto industry and various US banks, but multiple foreign central banks as they have run into trouble.

What Will The Next Phase of Occupy Wall Street Take Us? / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA week ago, I produced a TV documentary on inside the Occupy Wall Street encampment in New York. http://www.presstv.ir/Program/208834.html

It was already somewhat obsolete by the time it aired.

The Park, once a buzzing center of debate and open-air meetings has gone residential in the sense that virtually every square inch of what was a half-acre political terrarium is now dominated by tents, an effort to insure more protection from the elements and some better level of personal security. As private spaces proliferated, public space shrunk.
