The Horrid Consequences of Business, Humanity at the Crossroads / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat's known as the economy has not only had horrid consequences, it is ultimately unsustainable. In two centuries, it has turned human beings into beasts of burden and their rulers into mere teamsters, it has polluted the Earth, extinguished uncounted species and exterminated millions of people, it has denuded forests, melted glaciers, and is in the process of depleting un-renewable natural resources. Someday, no natural resources will be available for industrial processing, and this economy's assets will turn to dusted rust.

Freak-a-nomics and the United States of McDonalds / Politics / US Economy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is one of those Freak-a-nomic statistics that, if you were in government, you wouldn’t ever want it to be released to the public, especially during a protracted recession like we are currently witnessing in the US. No would want to admit that the Golden Arches are holding up the American economy.

Bureau of Labor Statistics Playing Old Maid / Politics / Economic Statistics

By: Fred_Sheehan

When my youngest sister was four-years-old, we taught her how to play Old Maid. She learned quickly but played the game like - a four-year-old. When she was dealt the Old Maid, her little thumb would push it a couple of inches above the others in her hand. She did this with a giggle since her maneuver was tricking us (in her 4-year-old mind) into taking the Old Maid. She succeeded; someone would remove it from her hand so that she could say: "Ha, Ha, you have the Old Maid!"

Global Implications of Offshore Oil Dispute in South China Sea / Politics / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

The world's unceasing quest for new oil deposits has combined with offshore technology to impel many countries to investigate their offshore resources in their "exclusive economic zone," (EEZ) defined by the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea Part V, Article 55 as extending 200 nautical miles from a nation's coastline.

Too Big to Fail, HBO Financial Crisis Propaganda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Videos

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHBO's fairy tale propaganda piece on the Financial Crisis, masking the truth of Investment Banks engaged in massive fraud aided by central banks, goes a long way towards explaining why the population remains so docile despite the magnitude of the financial crimes that continue to be committed against them (the tax payers).

U.S. Cyber-War False-Flag Attacks / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

The U.S. and almost all nations today in our age of mass societies and Big Media Propaganda whip up war-lust among their people before attacking other nations.

The Nazis were masters of false-flag attacks, such as dressing up dead men in Polish uniforms and planting them on German soil and then screaming "Poland Is invading Germany!," which Poland would have done only if they had gone totally insane because it was obvious that Germany could annihilate them quickly, as it did after the false-flag attacks whipped the German people up for war [though probably not as much as the Nazis hoped to do].

U.S. Debt Ceiling Debate is Just Politicial Theatre / Politics / US Debt

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Although the financial press speculates about a downgrade of the US government’s credit rating and default if political impasse prevents the debt ceiling from being raised in time, I doubt anyone really believes that the debt ceiling will not be raised. It is just all a part of the political theater of the next couple of months.

Wall Street's Role in Narco Trafficking, The War on Drugs is a Fraud / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Imagine what your reaction would be if the Mexican government agreed to pay Barack Obama $1.4 billion to deploy US troops and armored vehicles to New York, Los Angeles and Chicago to conduct military operations, set up check points, and engage in fire-fights that end up killing 35,000 US civilians on the streets of American cities.

European Union, A Flawed Foundation, But Brilliant Strategy? / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was the perception of getting something of value without any meaningful sacrifice that initially fostered the EU Monetary Union. Though the countries of Europe were fiercely nationalistic they were willing to surrender minor sovereign powers  only if it was going to prove advantageous to them.  They were certainly  unwilling to relinquish sufficient sovereignty to create the requisite political union required for its success.

Debit Card Interchange Fees and the Politics of Lobbying / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLegislation to modify debit-card interchange fees cannot compete with celebrity gossip. Yet, exhausted carcasses are carried on stretchers from the senate office buildings. The Huffington Post explained: "A full 118 ex-government officials and aides are currently registered to lobby on behalf of banks in the fee fight... Retailers have signed up at least 124 revolving-door lobbyists.... The flood fills the hallways with lobbyists and deluges the airwaves with ads. For weeks, Washington's Metro system has been papered with... ads on trains and station walls."

Offshoring has Destroyed the US Economy / Politics / US Economy

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese are discouraging times, but once in a blue moon a bit of hope appears. I am pleased to report on the bit of hope delivered in March of 2011 by Michael Spence, a Nobel prize-winning economist, assisted by Sandile Hlatshwayo, a researcher at New York University. The two economists have taken a careful empirical look at jobs offshoring and concluded that it has ruined the income and employment prospects for most Americans.

IMF Make or Break Time / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe IMF's real goal, today, has mutated from supplying rapid aid to countries in balance of payments crisis (BOP crises) and more vague official goals for stabilizing exchange rates, aiding the growth of world trade, fighting poverty and newer elite fear themes, most recently global warming until its sudden fall from grace, after the disastrous and embarrassing Copenhagen "summit" of Dec 2009. Since the collapse of global warming as the underlying theme for generating new underlying financial assets, tied to emissions credits and carbon finance and thought able to generate at least one $ 100-billion-plus new funding vehicle for the IMF, it has shifted to its last and probably make or break role.

Ron Paul on Enabling of a Future American Dictator / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

These are truly troubling days for liberty in the United States.

Last week the 60 day deadline for the president to gain congressional approval for our military engagement in Libya under the War Powers Resolution came and went. The media scarcely noticed. The bombings continued. We had a hearing on Capitol Hill on the subject, but the administration refuses to bother with the legality of its new war. It is unclear if Mr. Obama will ever obtain congressional consent, and astonishingly it is being argued that he doesn't need it.

HBO’s 'Too Big to Fail', A Fascist Fairy Tale / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJens C. Kolbjørnsen writes: "Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power." ~ Benito Mussolini

Now that we are pushing the three years anniversary of the dramatic financial events of September 2008, it is fair to say, for anyone who has researched the subject on their own, that this movie is nothing but a popularization of the mainstream version of a crisis that only has been postponed and worsened. It portrays the criminals of the revolving door between Washington D.C. and Wall Street as heroes, without so much as touching upon the real reason for the boom and bust phenomenon.

The Fed Is Not Printing Money The Fed Is Not Printing Money / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI know what you've heard from "reliable sources" on the Internet, but it's hogwash. In fact, there is not one economist--to my knowledge--who would characterize the Fed's Quantitative Easing program (QE2) as a money printing operation.

What the Fed's doing is buying a bunch of long-term bonds (US Treasuries) in exchange for bank reserves. What this does is reduce the average maturity of the debt held by the public, which reduces long-term interest rates.

Innovation, the American Economy’s Most Surprising Deficit / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI argued in a previous article why, despite America’s current obsession with government budget issues, the real key to bringing back our economy lies in a) fixing our trade deficit and b) restoring our capacity for innovation.

Although the former problem has now grabbed significant public attention, most Americans seem to think that our national capacity for innovation is healthy and without problems.

Things Get Curiouser and Curiouser / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs if it were not strange enough! Microsoft bought a phone company with no phones for $8.5 billion. Then, the public bid up the price of another Internet company, LinkedIn, to the point where buyers were paying more than $20 for every dollar of revenue that came the company’s way. As for profits, they capitalized each one at more than 700 times. At this rate, an investor wouldn’t earn his money back until 2,711AD.
