By: Money_Morning

European Nanny State Blames Germany for Debt Crisis / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Europe, a big finger-pointing escapade is is full swing. Those looking for scapegoats for what ails the Eurozone have found a convenient target in German Chancellor Angela Merkel for refusing to cooperate in resolving the European sovereign debt crisis. Merkel is accused of anything and everything including being "extraordinarily lazy" as well as for "taking Germany to the brink".

Yet, as Greece smolders in riots and firebombs over various austerity measures, pretty speeches, untenable pledges regarding haircuts, and continual bickering remain the only action items of note coming from Europe.

What if Wikileaks is PSYOP? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Mr. F. William Engdahl has contributed a controversial opinion about the Wikileaks phenomena and it deserves reading and remembering [1]. No one can prove or disprove the legitimacy of any leaked document since its original author is undisclosed. Furthermore, as it now stands, the actual "source" (person) behind a document can no longer uphold or refute his or her own leaked words publicly without the risk of facing charges by Washington and the U.S. Military. Equally disturbing is the world media - self-proclaimed champions of high journalistic standards and integrity. The world media never asked the critical question: Are these cables authentic?

I will skip the part where I heap disdain on the IMF and say rude things like how I think that the IMF is a worthless bunch of incompetent, self-serving, socialist scumbags.

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Gross, Nouriel Roubini, Laurence Kotlikoff, Steve Keen, Michel Chossudovsky and the Wall Street Journal all say that the U.S. economy is a giant Ponzi scheme. Virtually all independent economists and financial experts say that rampant fraud was largely responsible for the financial crisis. See this.

What the State Fears Most: Information / Politics / US Politics

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory tells a cyclical story of man versus state: man persistently creating new ideas and the state tirelessly laboring to destroy them. Bureaucracy has never been a friend to the ideas that undermine its artificial legitimacy.

All too often, history provides us with examples of state-enforced book burnings and other forms of extreme censorship. Many of us today take our so-called freedom of speech for granted, and few realize just how pervasive government censorship remains. It is true that not many of us living today in the industrially advanced world have experienced the worst kinds of censorship[1] — few have memories, for example, of the Nazi book burnings that took place throughout the 1930s, which claimed over 18,000 works.

Taking Stock of WikiLeaks / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJulian Assange has declared that geopolitics will be separated into pre-“Cablegate” and post-“Cablegate” eras. That was a bold claim. However, given the intense interest that the leaks produced, it is a claim that ought to be carefully considered. Several weeks have passed since the first of the diplomatic cables were released, and it is time now to address the following questions: First, how significant were the leaks? Second, how could they have happened? Third, was their release a crime? Fourth, what were their consequences? Finally, and most important, is the WikiLeaks premise that releasing government secrets is a healthy and appropriate act a tenable position?

Ron Paul, Audit the Fed in 2011 / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Since the announcement last week that I will chair the congressional subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve, the media response has been overwhelming. The groundswell of opposition to Fed actions among ordinary citizens is reflected not only in the rhetoric coming out of Capitol Hill, but also in the tremendous interest shown by the financial press. The demand for transparency is growing, whether the political and financial establishment likes it or not. The Fed is losing its vaunted status as an institution that somehow is above politics and public scrutiny. Fed transparency will be the cornerstone of my efforts as subcommittee chairman.

The Debt-Dollar Discipline: Part III - Future Reorganization / Politics / US Politics

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"There are more ideas on earth than intellectuals imagine. And these ideas are more active, stronger, more resistant, more passionate than ''politicians'' think. We have to be there at the birth of ideas, the bursting outward of their force: not in books expressing them, but in events manifesting this force, in struggles carried on around ideas, for or against them." - Michel Foucault

China’s Relentless Advance Continues! / Politics / China Economy

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWars between major countries are no longer fought on the high seas, or on land with vast armies, but in board rooms and markets. It’s now economic warfare that threatens to alter the global landscape, enriching the winners and creating hardship for losers.

It’s no longer about which country has the largest navy or nuclear arsenal. It’s about which country can win the economic battles.

U.S. Politicians Engaged in Grand Compromise or Great Conspiracy? / Politics / US Politics

By: Martin_D_Weiss

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Americans went to the polls last month, many thought they were voting for a return of fiscal sanity in Washington. And with fiscal sanity, we’d have far better assurance of bond-market stability.

Instead, three houses of ill repute — two on Capitol Hill and one on Pennsylvania Avenue — are joining to deliver one of the most wanton, deficit-busting, bond-wrecking bills of all time.

The Fed Vastly Expands Moral Hazard, Wrecking the American Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis definition of moral hazard from Wikipedia is quite satisfactory: "Moral Hazard occurs when a party insulated from risk behaves differently than it would behave if it were fully exposed to the risk.

"Moral hazard arises because an individual or institution does not take the full consequences and responsibilities of its actions, and therefore has a tendency to act less carefully than it otherwise would, leaving another party to hold some responsibility for the consequences of those actions. For example, a person with insurance against automobile theft may be less cautious about locking his or her car, because the negative consequences of vehicle theft are (partially) the responsibility of the insurance company."

The Political Economy and Silver Price Manipulation / Politics / US Politics

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe science which today is called economics was originally called political economy, meaning that it was a combination of politics and economics.  This has always seemed a little strange to me.  Economics is the science of creating wealth.  We cannot say that politics is the science of destroying wealth (although sometimes it seems that way).  However, we can say that improper politics is the science of destroying or stealing wealth and proper politics is the science of safeguarding the right of property.
