High-Speed Rail Initiative Stoked by Obama Budget / Politics / Infrastructure

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: U.S. President Barack Obama is poised to submit his fiscal 2012 budget on Monday, and one of its outlays will be $8 billion for high-speed rail development.

Obama first outlined his vision for an expansive high-speed rail network in 2009. The initiative promised to create jobs, lower carbon emissions, increase efficiency, and improve commerce.

Facebook Nation, Facebook World / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ron_Holland

I’m using the term "Facebook Nation" to describe the growing power of individuals incorporating the internet and social media like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to effect political change.

I believe Mubarak’s fall from power and tyranny is just the first of many victories which will be credited to freedom-loving people using the internet and social media to defeat corrupt, dictatorial and unrepresentative governments. This is individual human action at its best as described by Austrian economist, Ludwig von Mises.

Stunning Data: Obama’s First Two Years a Complete Disaster / Politics / US Politics

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe argument will be that President Obama inherited this crisis, recession, depression or whatever you want to call  it. But we didn’t hear any complaints during the 2008 election campaign, so we assume that President Obama wanted the job and had a grasp of what it was he was signing on for.

He got the job based on great marketing and the many promises made to his constituents. Many of them believed they’d receive free gas, free homes, and that they wouldn’t have to work for the American dream - it would simply be handed to them.

The Two Faces of Ben Bernanke / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

Based on his recent public comments, Fed Chairman Bernanke seems determined to give the U.S. dollar the reputation of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak: an unwanted relic of the past that everyone agrees must go, but stubbornly clings to a privileged position. The dollar is currently the world's ruling currency, but, as with Mubarak, I believe that growing public discontent will spur regime change quicker than most pundits expect.

British Prime Minister Whips Up Anti-Muslim Sentiment / Politics / UK Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJulie Hyland writes: British Prime Minister David Cameron used his speech to last weekend’s Munich Security Conference in Germany to proclaim a “sea-change” in the fight against “home-grown” terrorism in Britain.

The Tory leader’s remarks were profoundly anti-democratic. They gave notice that he intends to march in lockstep with the right-wing, anti-Muslim campaign being led by governments across Europe, as they seek to divide the working class in the face of social devastation and imperialist war.

Lockhart Tries To Justify The Fed’s Love of Printing Money / Politics / Central Banks

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing up on Bernanke’s ‘don’t blame me’ shtick last week, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta president Dennis Lockhart had this to say yesterday:

“The Fed, like every other central bank, is powerless to prevent fluctuations in the cost of living and increases of individual prices. We do not produce oil. Nor do we grow food or provide health care. We cannot prevent the next oil shock, or drought, or a strike somewhere —events that cause prices of certain goods to rise and change your cost of living.”

U.S. Politics of Hate Driving Out of Control Government Spending / Politics / Government Spending

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn describing the current situation in these United States, and in many of the world’s other superpowers, we here at Casey Research have often used the word “intractable”… as in, “impossible to resolve.”

While that may not be technically accurate – because there is no problem related to economics that can’t be solved if one is willing to swallow sufficiently strong medicine – it is a correct assessment, given the overwhelming role that politics now play in the economy.

The Burying of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Report / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndre Damon writes: Late last month, the US Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission issued the first official report on the causes of the 2008 financial meltdown.

The report is devastating. The commission interviewed over 700 witnesses, held 19 days of public hearings, and investigated millions of documents. Based on this research, it gives a fairly accurate picture of the fraud and criminality that led to the greatest financial catastrophe since the Great Depression.

British Government Must Give Us Answers Before Banks Make More Pay-outs Warns Independent Commission / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleZoe Gannon writes: The UK bank bonus season opens on 15th February when Barclays publishes its results which will show how much it has allocated to pay, this will set the bar for pay-outs at other banks, including nationally owned RBS and Lloyds which are due later this month.

With some pay-outs expected to reach seven figures, the independent High Pay Commission today argues that the reasons often cited for these awards don't add up when the economy is still reeling from the crisis the banks helped create.

America Is Not a Republic, U.S. Constitution Is on Life Support / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"This is a republic, not a democracy. Let's keep it that way!"

When I was a teenager, that was a popular saying in conservative circles. Conservative circles in 1958 were very few and very far between. The movement lacked slogans. Every fringe movement needs a few slogans. Slogans are like secret handshakes in a club. They identify one's true colors to those in the know.

Egyptian Crisis To Only Get Deeper With No Quick Fix Likely / Politics / Middle East

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe African journalist Nathanial Manheru chose a quote from French icon Andre Malraux’s Anti-Memoirs to understand current events in Egypt, “it is in Egypt that we are reminded that (man) invented the tomb.”

The tomb may be the appropriate metaphor not only for wannabe President for forever Hosni Mubarak but also for the 30 plus year neo-colonial economic system that he has presided over.  Not surprisingly Frank Wisner Jr, the former U.S. Ambassador and son of a CIA dirty tricksters, wants the President to stick around –in the country’s interest, of course.

Egypt Crisis Financial Bonanza for Wall Street Investors and Speculators / Politics / Middle East

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMubarak's  decision not to resign was taken in close consultation with Washington.  The US administration including US intelligence had carefully identified the possible scenarios. If Washington had instructed Mubarak to step down, he would have obeyed forthright.

His decision not to resign indelibly serves US interests. It creates a situation of social chaos and political inertia, which in turn generates a vacuum in decision making at the government level.

Who is the Real Opposition in Egypt? / Politics / Middle East

By: Shamus_Cooke

The revolution in Egypt erupted like all revolutions do, from the bottom up. It was unemployment and high food prices that propelled working and poor people into action. Now, the media reports that the "opposition” in Egypt is a group of well-to-do folks who have very little in common with the poor of Egypt.

Egypt's Revolution: Creative Destruction for a 'Greater Middle East'? / Politics / Middle East

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFast on the heels of the regime change in Tunisia came a popular-based protest movement launched on January 25 against the entrenched order of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak. Contrary to the carefully-cultivated impression that the Obama Administration is trying to retain the present regime of Mubarak, Washington in fact is orchestrating the Egyptian as well as other regional regime changes from Syria to Yemen to Jordan and well beyond in a process some refer to as "creative destruction.&
