Deficit Busting Tobin Tax Could Save America / Politics / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: After the Nov. 2 midterm elections, the Obama administration and Congress are going to have to scramble to fill a trillion-dollar hole in the U.S budget, and tax increases may be the only option.

A tax increase won't be good news for an already wheezing economic recovery that seems to get weaker with each new report or indicator that's issued. But the type of tax that's chosen will go a long way in determining just how much damage the U.S. economy will have to endure.

U.S. Wants the Appearance of Israeli-Palestinian Peace Talks / Politics / Middle East

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Israeli government and the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) have agreed to engage in direct peace talks Sept. 2 in Washington. Neither side has expressed any enthusiasm about the talks. In part, this comes from the fact that entering any negotiations with enthusiasm weakens your bargaining position. But the deeper reason is simply that there have been so many peace talks between the two sides and so many failures that it is difficult for a rational person to see much hope in them. Moreover, the failures have not occurred for trivial reasons. They have occurred because of profound divergences in the interests and outlooks of each side.

Iran and Nuclear Proliferation, Nobody Gave Us The Bomb / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Internet, the press and media, and leading politicians bristle with trenchant prose on the dangers of atomic weapons proliferation and how it can be stopped dead in its tracks. In the extreme case of Iran's suspected "double track" approach using civil nuclear technology to make a bomb while pretending it doesn't want the bomb, the extreme solution to make Iran "come clean" includes simply bombing all of its nuclear installations. To some this is a practical and real option, whatever the horrendous civilian "collateral damage" - and the impact on oil prices.

Obama’s Delusions on The Economy and Iraq / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you’ve listened to recent speeches the President has given about the economy and the Iraq war, you’d think that two of the biggest social issues facing working Americans are improving.  But facts are stubborn things.

U.S. Military Gearing Up to Challenge the Asian Century / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first decade of what more than a generation ago was predicted to be the Asian Century is winding down, marking ten years since the end of the American Century.

China overtook Japan as the world's second-largest economy during the second financial quarter of this year and three-quarters of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations, the world's largest emerging economies, are entirely or primarily in Asia. During its first heads of state summit in Russia last year, BRIC "urged the creation of a new global financial security system." [1] At the time its members accounted for 15 percent of the global economy and 42 percent of international currency reserves [2] even after the advent of the U.S.-triggered world financial crisis in 2008.

U.S. Military Intervention in Africa, The New Blueprint for Global Domination / Politics / Africa

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul C. Wright writes: The United States’ intervention in Africa is driven by America’s desire to secure valuable natural resources and political influence that will ensure the longevity of America’s capitalist system, military industrial complex, and global economic superiority – achieved through the financial and physical control of raw material exports. While America’s prosperity may be waning due to a number of current factors, policy makers are bent on trying to preserve America’s global domination and will pursue policy objectives regardless of the downturn in the economy at large.

The New Auto IRA Is Just Highway Robbery / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Ron_Holland

First They Destroy Private Healthcare in America – Yes, the socialist Democrats won their first battle to destroy the private healthcare system in the US but the automatic IRA bill now in Congress is their next attack to also control, confiscate and destroy the private retirement system. Ultimately, nationalizing healthcare is designed to create a major new government revenue stream by replacing private health insurance with a nationalized, mandatory, government program and their goal is identical with your retirement plan.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDid you get a raise in 2009? 

CEOs of the nation’s largest health insurers most certainly did; CIGNA, UnitedHealth, Humana and Wellpoint. In fact, as a reward for many years of excessive hikes to insurance premiums executed under his leadership, Edward Hanway, the former CEO of CIGNA was provided with a retirement package worth $110.9 million, paid for by the excessive and unnecessarily high insurance premiums billed to CIGNA’s policy holders.

Why the Wars can't be Won / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEdmund Burke's statement, "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it" is frequently cited, but in truth, even history's obvious lessons are unrecognized by many who know history very well.

There was a time when every school child could recite the Gettysburg Address from memory, especially its famous peroration: “we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth." But that resolution has largely gone unfulfilled. So exactly what did the Civil War accomplish?

How Could Illegal Immigration Make America Any Worse Than It Already Is? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark R. Crovelli writes: Way back in the 1950’s, one could perhaps be excused for fearing that unhampered "illegal" immigration would lead to a dissolution of the American republic, as throngs of uneducated foreigners with different cultural values overran the existing American population. Indeed, one might have been justified in thinking, as many conservatives in fact did, that the unique "American experiment" depended upon the prevention of an influx of foreigners of the old-world mentality, who did not understand or appreciate individual liberty the way Americans did.
