Europe's Economic Austerity: a Grimm's Fairy Tale / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConn Hallinan writes: In the Greek town of Aphidal, people have stopped paying road fees. In Athens, bus and metro riders are refusing to cough up the price of a ticket. On Feb. 23, 250,000 Greek protesters jammed the streets outside the nation's parliament.

The Portuguese nominated the protest song "A Luta E' Alegria" (The Struggle is Joy) for the Eurovision song contest and, when judges ignored it, walked out in protest. They also put 300,000 people into the streets of the country's major cities on Mar. 12.

Why “Fair” Trade Is Not The (Whole) Answer / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The idea of “fair” trade is very appealing, whether confronting the plight of autoworkers in Michigan or farmers in the Third World. Unfortunately, it will be only a small part of any trade solution for the U.S. and the world as a whole.

Fair trade in goods like coffee is a fine thing, because there exists a clear idea of unfair practices in how coffee importers treat coffee farmers and how to avoid them. That sort of fair trade basically consists in First World consumers voluntarily not using the full strength of their bargaining position with Third World producers. This is admirable enough.

Everybody Knows Bernanke Is a Joke / Politics / Central Banks

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs YouTube and other digital media move beyond computer-savvy young people into the ranks of even stodgy businessmen, these subversive outlets become serious problems for the ruling elite. This trend is epitomized by the radical change in the Federal Reserve's image. In just a few short years, the Fed has transformed in public opinion from a mysterious, wise, and boring institution into a fascinating engine of corruption and comedy.

The Quantifiable Problem With Private Sector Salaries / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was particularly interested in this week's ubiquitous newspaper insert, Parade magazine, as its cover featured the interesting article "What People Earn. Our Annual Salary Survey."

Knowing that the average government worker makes an astounding twice as much in wages and benefits as the average private-sector worker, I was hoping that I could use something in the article to take to my boss, as part of my new Mogambo Income Enhancement Plan (MIEP), and say, "Hey! Look at all the money these people make! I deserve more money to work at this crappy job! And I deserve more because I am probably as good an employee as at least one of these guys! I want a raise! Big fat one!"

Unfolding Nuclear Catastrophe in Japan, Leaking Radioactive Contamination / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Washingtons_Blog

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKyodo News reports: A nuclear crisis at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant deepened Tuesday as fresh explosions occurred at the site and its operator said water in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods may be boiling, an ominous sign for the release of high-level radioactive materials from the fuel.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the water level in the pool storing the spent fuel rods at its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant's No. 4 reactor may have dropped, exposing the rods.

Nuclear Power Madness / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNorman Solomon writes: Like every other president since the 1940s, Barack Obama has promoted nuclear power. Now, with reactors melting down in Japan, the official stance is more disconnected from reality than ever.

Political elites are still clinging to the oxymoron of "safe nuclear power." It's up to us - people around the world - to peacefully and insistently shut those plants down.

Kennedy’s Blunder, or How Free Trade Turned Sour for America / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

How did America end up in its present trade pickle? NAFTA? No way. The WTO? I wish. To understand our present predicament, you need to go back much further than that.

In retrospect, America’s decisive wrong turn on trade was probably John F. Kennedy’s Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

Japan, the Persian Gulf and Energy / Politics / Crude Oil

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past week, everything seemed to converge on energy. The unrest in the Persian Gulf raised the specter of the disruption of oil supplies to the rest of the world, and an earthquake in Japan knocked out a string of nuclear reactors with potentially devastating effect. Japan depends on nuclear energy and it depends on the Persian Gulf, which is where it gets most of its oil. It was, therefore, a profoundly bad week for Japan, not only because of the extensive damage and human suffering but also because Japan was being shown that it can’t readily escape the realities of geography.

Could Nuclear Radiation From Japan Meltdown Reach the United States? / Politics / Environmental Issues

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: The possibility of a full-blown nuclear meltdown of one or more of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors seems to increase by the hour.  Millions of weary Japanese citizens are desperately hoping that the worst case scenario does not play out.  A major nuclear disaster is the last thing that they need at this point.  So could radiation from a meltdown of one or more of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors reach the United States?

WTO Judicial Activism vs. America / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The WTO’s latest outrage has brought this odious organization to public attention again, but this is hardly the first time it has sided against American interests.

For example, it has for years engaged in judicial activism aimed at systematically rewriting American trade law to our disadvantage. As Robert Lighthizer, a former Deputy U.S. Trade Representative, told a hearing of the House Trade Subcommittee in 2007:

Saudi Troops Storm Into Bahrain / Politics / Middle East

By: STRATFOR

Forces from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries will enter Bahrain to help the Bahraini regime quell unrest, according to a number of media reports, including by Bahrain’s Alyam newspaper, known for its close links with the ruling al-Khalifa family. The reports come one day after clashes occurred between Shiite protesters and police in the capital, Manama. Meanwhile, Bahraini state media reported that the Independent Bloc (a parliamentary bloc of the Bahraini parliament) asked Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa to enforce martial law to contain the unrest.

Japan Nuclear Melt-Down? The Government to the Rescue / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike (in Tokyo) Rogers writes: The nuclear power plant failures and explosions near Fukushima, Japan are an excellent case example of the failure of government. Here, the Japanese government has been horribly derelict before, during and after this incident. This freak occurrence would be a tragedy of comical proportions if only it weren’t so grotesque and a real-life horror show. It has been a brutal tragedy of errors that makes me wonder why anyone would trust or believe anything the government says.

WTO Sides With Chinese State Capitalism Against the U.S. / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The World Trade Organization has a long history of anti-American actions. They’ve just handed us another one, and in the process handed a big freebie to Chinese state capitalism.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, huge sections of our nation’s trade policy aren’t set in this country anymore. They are set by panels of WTO judges in Switzerland, to whom we have signed over the right to rule on the legitimacy of our policies.

There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Winston Churchill - The Second World War

Free Trade and the Tea Party: Puppets or Rebels? / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy job deprives me of the luxury of partisanship, as I have to reach out to both sides on the issue of free trade--a disastrous policy one can give impeccably liberal or conservative reasons to be against. So I can't offer any opinion of the Tea Party movement per se. But I can tell you that the way they're handling the issue of free trade reveals a lot about them.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFelicity Arbuthnot writes: "Do not hold the delusion that your advancement is accomplished by crushing others.": (Marcus Tullius Cicero,106-43 B.C. Roman Statesman, Philosopher.)

British Style "Liberation": Beware the Ides of March.

Even by the standards of a near bancrupt island off Europe, run currently, largely, by a bunch of seemingly gung-ho, out of out of touch millionaires, the gun boat diplomacy of Messrs Cameron, Fox and Hague (Prime Minister, Defense Minister and Foreign Minister respectively) was a monumental farce of historic proportions.
