Stunning Lack of Economic Understanding at the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the world confronts one of the most critical periods of economic upheaval that it has ever seen, it is clear that our most influential economic stewards have absolutely no idea what they are doing. But, like kids with a new chemistry set, they are nevertheless unwilling to let that stand in the way of their experimental fun. As they pour an ever-growing number of volatile ingredients into their test tubes, we can either hope that they magically stumble on the secret formula to cure the world's ills, or more pragmatically, we can try to prepare for the explosion that is likely to result.

The Social Snobbery of Free Trade / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Skepticism about free trade is often stigmatized with ad hominem attacks. These mostly come down to variations on the following:
“Protectionists are dummies, losers, incompetents, hippies, rednecks, dinosaurs, closet socialists, or crypto-fascists.”
Thomas Friedman’s version in The World is Flat (the Das Kapital of Globalism) runs thus:

Global Food Prices Panic? / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGrowing demand, falling production, a market based upon speculation. Global food prices have increased for the 8th consecutive month. Most commodity groups have risen. The ones who are going to pay the invoice are the world's poor, as per the humanitarian catastrophe looming in Somalia.

Libya Crisis. What the Mainstream Media is Hiding / Politics / Middle East

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo weeks have elapsed since the first demonstrations in Benghazi and Tripoli. The disinformation campaign about Libya has sown confusion in the world. First a certainty: the analogies with events in Tunisia and Egypt are misplaced. These rebellions contributed obviously to depoliticize street protests in both neighboring countries, but the peculiar Libyan process has characteristics inseparable from the conspiring strategy of imperialism and what can be defined as the metamorphosis of a leader.

The Class War, March Madness Time in the USA / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The worst things get, the harder it is for people to agree on what to do.”

The term class war has been extricated from the archives of another era, while divisions over the future of the economy have become a battleground in which the adversaries yell at each other, but rarely engage in any discourse with each other in a shared language.

Enemies of the Middle Class / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith less than one quarter of 2011 gone, we have seen the spread of three revolutions. The first is literal. It is happening in North Africa. The second is intellectual: the acceptance by large numbers of voters of a shutdown of the United States government, which is deemed to be out of control. The third is political: the willingness of state legislatures in the rust belt to remove the 70-year government subsidies to public employees' unions.

Doug Casey on Labor Unions / Politics / Social Issues

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Interviewed by Louis James, Conversations with Casey)

Contrarian investor and free-market thinker Doug Casey doesn't mince his words. That's why he is a sought-after speaker at investment conferences - not only for his spot-on investment advice but for his no-holds-barred views of the markets, economy, and politics. In light of the recent events in Wisconsin, here are his musings on labor unions.

1 In 5 Workers Are Underemployed, What is Capitalism? / Politics / Employment

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDecline of the Empire writes: The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) redefined the "official" jobs reality today, as it does every month. The BLS provides the data Americans incapable of thinking outside the box will cite over and over to reassure themselves and any remaining doubters that the economic "recovery" is on track, though that recovery been a bit slower than the True Believers would like to see.

Capitalism and Socialism / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Art_Carden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow many times have you heard "capitalist" used as an epithet or a put-down? How many people do you know who use variations on "capitalism" to describe pretty much anything they don't like? It's a vice that cuts several ways. As the tea-party movement has risen to prominence, how often have you heard people denounce President Obama as a socialist?

Currency Revaluation Won’t Fix America’s Trade Mess / Politics / US Economy

It is sometimes suggested that our trade problems (job losses, international indebtedness) will go away on their own once currency values adjust. Bottom line? A declining dollar will eventually solve everything.

Lies and the Truth in the Wisconsin Worker Rights Battles / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Historian and satirist Thomas Carlyle said "a lie cannot live." However, Mark Twain casually remarked, "It shows that he did not know how to tell them."

More than a century later, newly-elected Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-dominated Wisconsin legislature have proven themselves to be "quick studies," having learned how to tell whoppers about the working class and unions. Here are just a few.

Global Financial System is One Gargantuan Ponzi Scheme... / Politics / Social Issues

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHon. Paul Hellyer writes: An Address to the International UFO Congress, Fort McDowell Resort, Scottsdale, Arizona, Saturday, February 26, 2011 by Hon. Paul Hellyer, P.C. Former Canadian Minister of National Defence

The world financial system is a total fraud. It is one gargantuan Ponzi scheme, no better than the one Bernie Madoff used to swindle his friends and neighbors, and thousands of times worse if you add up the total number of victims it has ripped off over countless generations.

Mainstream Press and the GM Pump-and-Dump / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wanted to point out another example of the need to be critical when you come across "news."  

In the vast majority of cases, news stories are centered on hidden agendas that come from the top of the organization. Often, when the hidden message or twist on facts is meant to assist the agendas of America's fascist government, the orders are sent from a PR official at the White House. When the deceit is meant to help the agendas of the corporate side of America’s fascist government, the orders come from corporate executives themselves.

Yellen and Gadhafi - Studies in Paranoia / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

The continued existence of the Federal Reserve System is both the greatest threat to national solvency and an insult to the American people.

On February 25, 2011, Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet L. Yellen explored new depths of dishonor. (For an earlier depth, see: Liquidate the Fed.) At a University of Chicago Business School forum, the life-long academic claimed: "I'll highlight the role of central bank communications in bolstering the effectiveness of unconventional monetary policy." [All Yellen statements are in italics.] The title of Yellen's speech was: "Unconventional Monetary Policy and Central Bank Communications." It was dishonest from beginning to end.

The New Math and the New Geometry Bringing Down the State / Politics / US Politics

By: Butler_Shaffer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThey [feminist groups in Iraq] are very strong. Their approach is unique because they have no leaders. They do not have a head or branch offices. . . . This movement is made even stronger by not having leaders. If one or two people lead it, the organization would weaken if these leaders were arrested. Because there is no leader, it is very strong and not stoppable. ~ Shirin Ebadi, 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient

NATO Re-surfaced Map of the New Middle East / Politics / Middle East

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMahdi Darius Nazemroaya writes: A relatively unknown map of the Middle East, NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan, and Pakistan has been circulating around strategic, governmental, NATO, policy and military circles since mid-2006. It has been causally allowed to surface in public, maybe in an attempt to build consensus and to slowly prepare the general public for possible, maybe even cataclysmic, changes in the Middle East. This is a map of a redrawn and restructured Middle East identified as the “New Middle East.”
