We Can’t Let China Sway Our Energy Decisions / Politics / China

By: Barry_Elias

First U.S. Treasury bonds, now dysprosium.

China owns nearly $1 trillion of U.S. debt (approximately 7 percent of the nearly $14 trillion total). China also retains roughly $2.5 trillion in foreign-currency reserves, nearly all in U.S. dollars. They lend money to us so we can purchase their exports, which are more competitively priced than ours.

U.S. State Budget Crisis: Deadbeat States Need to Stop Spending, Start Mending / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: State governments are broke, and things are going to get worse before they get better - a whole lot worse.

Look at California. It's facing a $19 billion budget deficit next year and had to raise tuition in the state university system by 32% to try and collect revenue.

1984 - 2011: Dissent Is What Rescues Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

"Dissent is what rescues democracy from a quiet death behind closed doors."
--Lewis H. Lapham

The year 2011 will bring Americans a larger and more intrusive police state, more unemployment and home foreclosures, no economic recovery, more disregard by the US government of US law, international law, the Constitution, and truth, more suspicion and distrust from allies, more hostility from the rest of the world, and new heights of media sycophancy.

North Korean Dear Leader Calls for Holy War / Politics / South Korea

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChristmas or no Christmas, the Korean Peninsula is boiling once again, with threats flying thicker than the winter snow along North Korea’s icy Yalu River.

Last week, North Korea threatened a nuclear "holy war" against South Korea. The North Korean "Dear Leader," Kim Jong-il, has repeatedly vowed to "liberate" South Korea, which he calls an American colony.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStephen Cox writes: Yesterday I watched one of my favorite movies, The Bishop’s Wife (1947). It’s the story of . . . well, never mind; I don’t want to reveal the plot. Anyway, at the end of the movie, the bishop (David Niven) gives a brief Christmas sermon, in which he says that the best presents are "loving kindness, warm hearts, and the stretched out hand of tolerance – all the shining gifts that make peace on earth."

Social Security is Not 'Insurance' / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Perhaps the biggest media story of 2010 was the influence of Tea Party voters on the congressional landscape. The new congress comes to Capitol Hill with a mandate to end profligate spending and restore fiscal sanity, we are told. But when the House and Senate convene in January, the newly elected members will face tremendous pressure to maintain spending levels for entitlement programs. Even the most modest proposals to trim Social Security or Medicare spending will be met with howls of indignation and threats of voter revolt. Legislators who propose any kind of means testing or increased retirement ages can expect angry visits from senior citizen lobbyists ready to fund a candidate back home who supports the status quo.

Mainstream Press Journalism of Appeasement, Corruption, Smoke and Mirrors / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere’s a brief summation of my recent reporting: If we continue to let our politicians and wealthy members of society live in comfort, free from the consequences of their actions, we are complicit in our own demise.

Our country is so overrun with corruption, we cannot remain passive and expect things to get any better.

A Spectre is Still Haunting Europe... / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBut this time it's not necessarily Communism, or any other label used by humans to conveniently understand their complex forms of socioeconomic organization. It's the spectre of an unrelenting reality, emerging from the depths of history, with no plans to follow but its own. What exactly, then, is reality and why does it have its own plans? These are not easy questions to answer, but many brilliant minds have had much to write and say on the topic. It may be safe to say with near certainty that, if nothing else, reality is constantly evolving and always lingering in the furthest boundaries of our comprehension.

Why is the West Sacrificing Lives in Afghanistan to Protect Chinese Investments? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Skinner writes: Many of the Canadian military, police, and civilian personnel who risk their lives in Afghanistan truly believe they are fighting a just war of good against evil. But America's and Britain's claims that the unsanctioned unilateral invasion of Afghanistan, which began the Global War on Terror, was justified by the terrorist attacks of 9/11 are as credible as claims the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian terrorist justified Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia to begin WWI.

Ernst & Young Charged with Collusion in Lehman's Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo filed a civil suit Tuesday in the state’s Supreme Court charging the giant accounting firm Ernst & Young with complicity in massive fraud committed by Lehman Brothers in the months leading up to the investment bank’s September 2008 collapse.

In a statement, Cuomo said that Lehman used an accounting gimmick that “was a house of cards business model designed to hide billions in liabilities in the years before Lehman collapsed.” He continued, “Just as troubling, a global accounting firm, tasked with auditing Lehman’s financial statements, helped hide this crucial information from the investing public.”

I Like Ebeneezer Scrooge, A Revisionist Look at Dickens / Politics / Social Issues

By: Butler_Shaffer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy interest in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol began one Christmas eve when, as a small child, my parents turned on network radio to listen to what, even then, had become a classic Christmas eve festivity: Lionel Barrymore’s presentation of the Dickens story.

Radio was a medium that required the imagination to paint scenes far more colorful, and to concoct monsters far scarier, than anything motion pictures or television have ever been able to present. With radio, the listener was the stage designer, costumer, and location director.

The Economic Lessons of Bethlehem and Christmas / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the heart of the Christmas story rests some important lessons concerning free enterprise, government, and the role of wealth in society.

Let's begin with one of the most famous phrases: "There's no room at the inn." This phrase is often invoked as if it were a cruel and heartless dismissal of the tired travelers Joseph and Mary. Many renditions of the story conjure up images of the couple going from inn to inn only to have the owner barking at them to go away and slamming the door.

NHS Hospitals Productivity Falls For a Decade by 1.4% Per Year Despite 70% Budget Increase / Politics / NHS

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNAO writes: Hospital productivity has fallen over the last ten years, according to the National Audit Office. Over the period since the ‘NHS Plan’ in 2000 there have been significant increases in hospital funding, to deliver improvements in the patient care, and designed in part to increase productivity. Hospitals have used their increased resources to deliver against national priorities, but they need to provide more leadership, management and clinical engagement to optimise the use of additional resources and deliver value for money.

Global Economic Crisis Triggers Debt Driven Suicides in India / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKavaljit Singh writes: The recent suicides by over 60 poor borrowers in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh have brought the operations of microfinance institutions (MFIs) under public scrutiny. It is well documented by both print and electronic media that these debt-driven suicides were due to coercive methods of loan recovery used by commercial MFIs. The commercial MFIs operate as profit-making non-banking financial corporations (NBFCs) in India.

There is only one dissenter, Thomas Hoenig, who consistently votes against any expansion of the FOMC's asset purchases, meaning any expansion of the FED's balance sheet: the monetary base. The vote is consistently 10 to 1.

On Obama's Failure To Carry Out His Elected Mandate To Reform / Politics / US Politics

By: Jesse

"First is the danger of futility; the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New /world, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. "Give me a place to stand," said Archimedes, "and I will move the world."
