The US Economy is A Giant Ponzi Scheme, Prosecuting Wall Street Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Gross, Nouriel Roubini, Laurence Kotlikoff, Steve Keen, Michel Chossudovsky and the Wall Street Journal all say that the U.S. economy is a giant Ponzi scheme. Virtually all independent economists and financial experts say that rampant fraud was largely responsible for the financial crisis. See this.

What the State Fears Most: Information / Politics / US Politics

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory tells a cyclical story of man versus state: man persistently creating new ideas and the state tirelessly laboring to destroy them. Bureaucracy has never been a friend to the ideas that undermine its artificial legitimacy.

All too often, history provides us with examples of state-enforced book burnings and other forms of extreme censorship. Many of us today take our so-called freedom of speech for granted, and few realize just how pervasive government censorship remains. It is true that not many of us living today in the industrially advanced world have experienced the worst kinds of censorship[1] — few have memories, for example, of the Nazi book burnings that took place throughout the 1930s, which claimed over 18,000 works.

Taking Stock of WikiLeaks / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJulian Assange has declared that geopolitics will be separated into pre-“Cablegate” and post-“Cablegate” eras. That was a bold claim. However, given the intense interest that the leaks produced, it is a claim that ought to be carefully considered. Several weeks have passed since the first of the diplomatic cables were released, and it is time now to address the following questions: First, how significant were the leaks? Second, how could they have happened? Third, was their release a crime? Fourth, what were their consequences? Finally, and most important, is the WikiLeaks premise that releasing government secrets is a healthy and appropriate act a tenable position?

Ron Paul, Audit the Fed in 2011 / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Since the announcement last week that I will chair the congressional subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve, the media response has been overwhelming. The groundswell of opposition to Fed actions among ordinary citizens is reflected not only in the rhetoric coming out of Capitol Hill, but also in the tremendous interest shown by the financial press. The demand for transparency is growing, whether the political and financial establishment likes it or not. The Fed is losing its vaunted status as an institution that somehow is above politics and public scrutiny. Fed transparency will be the cornerstone of my efforts as subcommittee chairman.

The Debt-Dollar Discipline: Part III - Future Reorganization / Politics / US Politics

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"There are more ideas on earth than intellectuals imagine. And these ideas are more active, stronger, more resistant, more passionate than ''politicians'' think. We have to be there at the birth of ideas, the bursting outward of their force: not in books expressing them, but in events manifesting this force, in struggles carried on around ideas, for or against them." - Michel Foucault

China’s Relentless Advance Continues! / Politics / China Economy

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWars between major countries are no longer fought on the high seas, or on land with vast armies, but in board rooms and markets. It’s now economic warfare that threatens to alter the global landscape, enriching the winners and creating hardship for losers.

It’s no longer about which country has the largest navy or nuclear arsenal. It’s about which country can win the economic battles.

U.S. Politicians Engaged in Grand Compromise or Great Conspiracy? / Politics / US Politics

By: Martin_D_Weiss

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Americans went to the polls last month, many thought they were voting for a return of fiscal sanity in Washington. And with fiscal sanity, we’d have far better assurance of bond-market stability.

Instead, three houses of ill repute — two on Capitol Hill and one on Pennsylvania Avenue — are joining to deliver one of the most wanton, deficit-busting, bond-wrecking bills of all time.

The Fed Vastly Expands Moral Hazard, Wrecking the American Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis definition of moral hazard from Wikipedia is quite satisfactory: "Moral Hazard occurs when a party insulated from risk behaves differently than it would behave if it were fully exposed to the risk.

"Moral hazard arises because an individual or institution does not take the full consequences and responsibilities of its actions, and therefore has a tendency to act less carefully than it otherwise would, leaving another party to hold some responsibility for the consequences of those actions. For example, a person with insurance against automobile theft may be less cautious about locking his or her car, because the negative consequences of vehicle theft are (partially) the responsibility of the insurance company."

The Political Economy and Silver Price Manipulation / Politics / US Politics

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe science which today is called economics was originally called political economy, meaning that it was a combination of politics and economics.  This has always seemed a little strange to me.  Economics is the science of creating wealth.  We cannot say that politics is the science of destroying wealth (although sometimes it seems that way).  However, we can say that improper politics is the science of destroying or stealing wealth and proper politics is the science of safeguarding the right of property.

Western Civilization and Classical Economics: The Immorality of Austerity / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen a civilization abandons its morality, no rationalization can be devised to justify its continued existence. It is likely that many reasons can be given for this abandonment in the Western world, although I am convinced that one predominates—the expansion of law. Law once governed various kinds of behavior. It has now encroached upon various kinds of speech and is even being applied to the realm of belief. When someone is accused of having done something wrong, the reply offered usually is something like, "What was done complied with all legal requirements." But "right" has never been defined as "conforms to law," because thoughtful people have long noticed that the law itself can be a great crime, and the worst criminals in a culture can be its lawgivers, as the people of Ireland, Portugal, France, Spain, Greece, and Great Britain are now finding out. Americans will soon find it out too.

Obamanation, Time that Americans Took Back Their Nation from the Criminals / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in early 2007, very few pundits gave Obama a chance in the 2008 Democratic presidential race. At the time, Hilary Clinton and others were front runners. But things would soon change.

Prior to the 2004 presidential campaign, George Soros & Co. were working to position Obama as a serious contender in 2008. They put together a propaganda book based on some episodes of Obama’s life, filled with the inspiration and glory often seen in fiction novels.

Obama Must Rally Democrats to Seal Tax Cuts Deal With Republicans / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Don Miller writes: President Barack Obama on Monday struck a deal with Republicans to extend the Bush-era tax cuts and federal unemployment insurance as well as a host of other tax breaks, but now he faces an uphill battle to convince reluctant members of his own party to go along.

Ignoring Democratic opposition, President Obama agreed to the compromise package, which cuts taxes on businesses in an effort to help the economy recover.

Wikileaks: A Big U.S. Government Con Job / Politics / US Politics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe story on the surface makes for a script for a new Oliver Stone Hollywood thriller. A 39-year old Australian hacker holds the President of the United States and his State Department hostage to a gigantic cyber “leak,” unless the President leaves Julian Assange and his Wikileaks free to release hundreds of thousands of pages of sensitive US Government memos. A closer look at the details, so far carefully leaked by the most ultra-establishment of international media such as the New York Times, reveals a clear agenda. That agenda coincidentally serves to buttress the agenda of US geopolitics around the world from Iran to Russia to North Korea. The Wikileaks is a big and dangerous US intelligence Con Job which will likely be used to police the Internet.

Ben Bernanke Digits Juggler about to Drop / Politics / Central Banks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt a circus, there is always a juggler. If he is dressed as a clown, he is not a great juggler. If he is in a sequin-covered tight suit, he is the real thing. He is there to impress us.

The juggler I most remember was a young man who was juggling a bunch of hoops. He was really good . . . until he dropped all of them in his grand finale. They came down in disarray. He picked them up and walked out of the ring. What else could he do? The finale was not so grand.

Washington Orders Another Free Lunch by Extending Bush Tax Cuts / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

This week Washington displayed the kind of "bipartisanship" that will bankrupt our country and wreck our currency. Coming at a time when both parties say they want to address our long-term fiscal imbalances, the compromise extension of the Bush era tax cuts should be a wake-up call to anyone who somehow expected the American leadership to ever have an "adult conversation" about the country's long term economic health.

Wikileaks: Corrupted Oracle or a Counter Intelligence Program Asset of the Establishment? / Politics / US Politics

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou can judge a tree by its fruit. In the case of Wikileaks, its low-hanging fruit.

There is only one thing more dangerous than a fundamentalist Neo-conservative, and that’s a naive liberal. In the wake of the demolition of the modern, somewhat mythological illusory icon Barrack Obama, people who identify themselves as liberal watchdogs have been left wanting for a new hero.
