Eurozone Banks Are Still Wobbly / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe EU banking system is in big trouble. That's why European Central Bank (ECB) head Jean-Claude Trichet continues to purchase government bonds and provide "unlimited funds" for underwater banks. It's an effort to prevent a financial system meltdown that could plunge the eurozone back into recession.

Successful Government Economic Policies? For Whom? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week, in the wake of another uptick in the official unemployment rate, the administration continued to claim that their economic policies were working, just not fast enough. This administration inherited an unemployment rate of 7.7% and promised a peak of no higher than 8% if their policies were followed. Not only does the administration have a funny way of ending a war, but now they claim their economic policies are successful. For whom, I wonder?

Sustainable Tax Policy: Expensing Investments / Politics / Taxes

By: Axel_Merk

In what the Wall Street Journal hails as “one of his most dramatic gestures to business,” President Obama is proposing companies be allowed to write off 100% of their new investment in plant and equipment through 2011. Democrats are lukewarm to the idea as it doesn’t “stimulate demand”; Republicans are shooting down the idea, too. Few seem to realize is that allowing businesses to expense their investments may be the single most effective policy tool available to promote sustainable economic growth.

The Poor and Socialism vs Capitalism / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKel Kelly writes: Socialists commonly cite the existence of the poor as a reason for socialism, and they claim that their concern for the poor shows compassion and morality. Since the topic of poverty is a key battleground in the war of socialism versus capitalism, it is relevant to examine what poverty is, how much of it exists in the United States, and how we can truly eliminate it.

Israel Prepares to Attack Iran With WMD's, Could Trigger World War III / Politics / Middle East

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stockpiling and deployment of advanced weapons systems directed against Iran started in the immediate wake of the 2003 bombing and invasion of Iraq. From the outset, these war plans were led by the US, in liaison with NATO and Israel. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration identified Iran and Syria as the next stage of “the road map to war”. US military sources intimated that an aerial attack on Iran could involve a large scale deployment comparable to the US "shock and awe" bombing raids on Iraq in March 2003:

Obama's Middle East Peace Talks Are A Circus to Distract / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

What a joke. President Obama surely knows there is zero chance that his Middle East peace talks will succeed, even with the deck stacked in his favor. All of the main actors are on the U.S. payroll: Israel, Egypt, and Jordan get billions in foreign aide, while the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has proven a pliable puppet for the U.S. as he is disdained by his own people.

Bankster's Cheer When Fraud Charges Are Dropped Again / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Affleck’s next movie, the Town, is set in Charlestown Mass, known for the battle of Bunker Hill and dubbed in the past by tabloid TV as “hell’s half acre” for all the crimes that take place there. The film, a cops and robbers tale, focuses on a gang that robs banks with extreme violence. Its ads refer to Charlestown as national capitol of bank robberies.

Labour Day 2010, Economic Austerity, Public Services and the Labour Movement / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg Albo and Bryan Evans write: This Labour Day, like the last two, is dominated by the ongoing global economic crisis. Since 2008 Canada's workers, working families, and the communities in which we make our lives, have endured a period of deep economic insecurity the likes of which we have not seen since the Great Depression. The crisis began in the financial sector, amongst bankers, brokers, lawyers, and financial engineers of all sorts when the credit bubbles supporting the casino economy of derivatives, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and other financial instruments began to deflate.

Mainstream Media Depression and Deflation Propaganda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Howard_Katz

Cause and Effect - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFanaticism has been defined as the policy of repeating the same actions while expecting a different result.  If that is the case, then we live in a society of fanatics, and it is absolutely essential to know this if one is to succeed in the financial markets.

In mid-September 2008, the New York Times began to scream, in a series of big headlines, that the nation was in a financial crisis.  I have studied the American media, and it is absolutely amazing.  The overwhelming majority of newspapers will pick up a line of propaganda from the Times and repeat it mindlessly ad infinitum.  After 2 weeks of Times propaganda the nation’s media had fallen in line, and in 10 days in early October the DJI fell by 3000 points (as the public read a large number of bearish articles about the financial system).

The NGO Invastion and Occupation of Afghanistan / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYves Engler writes: They’re called NGOs — non-governmental organizations — but the description is misleading at best, or an outright lie generated by intelligence agencies at worst.

In fact, almost all development NGOs receive a great deal of their funding from government and in return follow government policies and priorities. While this was always true, it has become easier to see with Stephen Harper’s Conservative Canadian government, which lacks the cleverness and subtlety of the Liberal Party who at least funded some “oppositional” activity to allow NGOs a veneer of independence.

Reconstructing The IPCC / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePropagandist Reconstruction, or PR of news, science data, other persons' views and different opinions is a long-term stalwart in modern society. From organizing public support for wars, even when the public itself may be attacked or be subject to economic loss, to ensuring that political leaders are re-elected, or that women start smoking and the public keeps buying the consumer products which generate the highest profits, the role of "communication" is primordial. What is called Public Relations is also and most basically propaganda.
