The Dark Heart of Corporatism / Politics / Taxes

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few seem to be waking up to the irony. A drumbeat of corporate persuasion that is noticeable to those outside the culture, and those who have switched off the propaganda feeds on the internet and in the mainstream media.  But the illusion is unnoticed by those seeking an escape from complexity and the uncomfortable in simple solutions and slogans, quickly mouthed as a subtitute for thought.

What's the Endgame for the Arab Spring? / Politics / Middle East

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe many "typical" issues with downside potential that markets have been dealing are still some ways away from sufficient resolution to calm markets. One that has slipped off the economic pages, but is still causing much chatter on the political front, is the ongoing movement in the Arab world for changes of government. Though not as up front with the market crowd as when it began, it is still having its impact on markets.

U.S. Nuclear Accident May Be Imminent at Fort Calhoun Nebraska Nuclear Plant / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the mainstream media guardians have been napping, we published a comprehensive article warning the public of the dangers present at Ft Calhoun. Now we are told that the flood berm has now collapsed after being punctured by “an unidentified piece of machinery“. Our big media stars and knuckle-dragging elected officials should be reminded here that this plant’s rod pool holds 20 years worth of spent fuel rods from all plants in the state plus 1/3 of of the rods that were removed during a recent refueling that was just accomplished.

Banker Occupation of Greece / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomist Michael Hudson calls it "Replacing Economic Democracy with Financial Oligarchy" in a June 5 article by that title, saying:

After being debt entrapped, or perhaps acquiescing to entrapment, the Papandreou government needs bailout help to pay bankers that entrapped them. Doing so, however, requires "initiat(ing) a class war by raising its taxes (harming working households most), lowering its standard of living - and even private-sector pensions - and sell off public land, tourist sites, islands, ports, water and sewer facilities" - in fact, all the country's crown jewels, lock, stock and barrel, strip-mining it of everything of worth at fire sale prices.

Bernanke, The US Central Planner Is an Idiot / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke gave his second-ever press conference on June 22.

Before I offer my assessment, I think it is wise to make you aware of a long-forgotten film: a 1931 movie short by Robert Benchley, one of the supreme humorists of his era. Benchley came on-screen as an economist. He provided information on why the economy was about to turn around. (It wasn't.) The depression was over. (It wasn't.) The recovery was just around the corner. (It wasn't.) Then he offered the appropriate evidence. The people in the theaters fully understood. Once you see this video, so will you. Professor Bernanke will never seem quite the same.

Third World America Drowning in Debt and Choking on Lies / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf a drunk driver crashed his speeding rental car into your house and killed your spouse, you would be outraged if law enforcers took bribes and refused to give the driver a blood test. If the judge then gave the killer a small fine and ordered you to pay the fine and pay for all the damages, you'd be outraged. If the government then handed the drunk-driver keys to a bigger faster rental car, handed the drunk driver an even bigger bottle of whiskey, and then gave you the rental bill; you'd storm Washington, blizzard elected officials with protests and organize friends and associates to vote these malefactors, the elected officials that betrayed your trust, out of office.

Say Goodbye to Your Standard of Living, Inflating Away America's Future / Politics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Pento writes: Americans are suffering from a lack of adequate savings to fund a comfortable retirement. Our growing debt burdens virtually assure us that the lofty living standards of today will soon be nothing more than a long forgotten memory.

U.S. Inflation Sick Minds / Politics / Inflation

By: Fred_Sheehan

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES - June 22, 2011 - "Lawmakers are considering changing how the Consumer Price Index is calculated, a move that could save perhaps $220 billion and represent significant progress in the ongoing federal debt ceiling and deficit reduction talks.

"According to congressional aides familiar with the discussions, the proposal would shift how the Consumer Price Index is calculated to reflect how people tend to change spending patterns when prices increase. For example, consumers tend to drive less when gas prices increase dramatically.

Obama's Afghanistan Plan and the Realities of Military Withdrawal / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. President Barack Obama announced June 22 that the long process of drawing down forces in Afghanistan would begin on schedule in July. Though the initial phase of the drawdown appears limited, minimizing the tactical and operational impact on the ground in the immediate future, the United States and its allies are now beginning the inevitable process of removing their forces from Afghanistan. This will entail the risk of greater Taliban battlefield successes.

Mainstream Media Blackout on Nuclear Incident at Fort Calhoun Nebraska? / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince flooding began on June 6th, there has been a disturbingly low level of media attention given to the crisis at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Facility near Omaha, Nebraska. But evidence strongly suggests that something very serious may have happened there.

Unfortunately for members of the public, there is no shortage of proof that serious nuclear incidents and radiation releases have happened in America, and have been covered up each and every time. For this reason, it is paramount that the media and the public demand every bit of information available on this latest event.

More Efficient Ways to Stimulate Economy than Using the Military as a Jobs Program / Politics / Employment

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. . . . We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people." –Dwight David Eisenhower, "The Chance for Peace," speech given to the American Society of Newspaper Editors, Apr. 16, 1953

Economic Austerity Is Good for the Greeks / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave you noticed the media reports on the intolerable nature of austerity in Greece? Have you read anything that praises this austerity and calls for more? You're about to.

The austerity we read about is a code word for "government spending cutbacks." In a media world run by Keynesians, the thought of cutbacks in government spending is a nightmare scenario. Keynesians believe that government spending is the source of both stability and growth in an economy. Any suggestion that the government has been spending far too much money is regarded as heretical.

Chinese Government Buying Up the United States / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls submits, Michael Synder writes: In 2011, America is for sale and the communist Chinese are eager buyers.  The Chinese government is using sovereign wealth funds and Chinese state-owned enterprises to buy up economic assets and huge tracts of land all over the United States.  Many of our politicians hail all of this "foreign investment" as something that is "good for America", while many others see something much more sinister going on here.  In any event, this is a trend that is rapidly accelerating and that is causing great concern among patriotic Americans.

Fukushima, the Greatest Nuclear & Environmental Disaster in Human History / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Global_Research

Steven C. Jones writes: By way of comparison, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occured in 1986 in the Ukraine, Russia- heretofore the worst nuclear disaster on record- burned for 10 days and cumulatively killed an estimated 1 million people worldwide. The Fukushima, Japan nuclear disaster has 5 nuclear reactors burning, 2 in partial meltdown and 3 in full meltdown- and they've ALL been uncontrollably burning since March 11th. Its been over 3 months and this nuclear disaster remains completely out of control. In fact, some industry estimates cite the possibility that these meltdowns will be contained (optimistically) in 1-3 years, at the very earliest.

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat the United States government, the U.S Federal Reserve, and a plethora of financial institutions, are in breach of numerous U.S. laws in regards to fraud and fiduciary duty to the American people, is held to be self-evident, by a growing minority of individuals around the world. That this breach of law and duty has resulted in the deterioration of the global marketplace, diminished opportunities for workers, and effected an acute decay in living standards for millions around the world, is without doubt.

What’s Really Wrong With the Thiel Fellowships / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn case you missed it, the Thiel Foundation, founded by Peter Thiel of PayPal fame, just announced the first batch of winners for its “20 Under 20” fellowship program to pay students to drop out of college for two years to pursue entrepreneurial ideas.

Any number of people have criticized this venture for encouraging kids to drop out of college. Personally, while I think it would be terrible thing if this sort of thing becomes too hip and causes deluded average kids who think the next Google is locked inside their heads to drop out and ruin their educations, it appears that the group chosen is sufficiently elite that a) they may well actually do something useful and b) will succeed no matter what.
