Workers, Socialization of Banking Debts and Crisis in Mexico / Politics / Mexico

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThomas Marois writes: A striking feature of the global financial crisis is the narrow and technical focus on banks and financial corporations without accounting for ordinary workers in these institutions and in society more broadly. Yet through the intensification of work, workers have also underwritten the profitability of finance. This has been generally ignored.

The Two Sides on the Debate Over Government Spending / Politics / Government Spending

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe live in interesting times, times that are no doubt going to get much more interesting in the years ahead and, unfortunately, probably more violent.

The recent demonstrations on California college campuses following the Tea Party protests of last summer bring up the intriguing possibility that we could actually see protesters againstgovernment spending and for government spending face off against each other in the streets.

Eurozone Governments Blame Greek Debt Crisis on Speculators Instead of Looking in the Mirror / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe heads of Germany, France and Greece are continuing to highly vocally blame financial speculators for Greece's debt financing woes. This clearly amounts to political propaganda in an attempt to ms-direct the eyes of their electorate away from those culpable in bringing the crisis about against rising debt financing and insurance costs which is a SYMPTOM of the crisis and not its cause.

Bifurcation of American Society Continues at Pace; Nearly Half Have Less than $10K for Retirement, / Politics / US Politics

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Quarter Less than $1K, but Millionaires Rebound Smartly

I won't get into all the dogmatic arguments that surround the massive income disparity in the US, we've discussed them in many other pieces.  (frankly I think wealth disparity - rewarding generations for nothing more than having the right genes - is a much larger problem the income disparity)  We must however understand "it is what it is" and Wall Street has entire thesis (plural?) built around it [Sep 7, 2009: Citigroup - America; A Modern Day Plutonomy

U.S. Election 2010, Republican Power Bubble / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

Forgetful of their own blown reputation, the more warfare end of the Republicrat Party is celebrating its looming ascendancy from this year’s federal elections.  Nothing has changed in America's two-party politics, from the Republican point of view, despite the ongoing economic disaster.  Republicans are going to crush Democrats in November no matter what because America’s economy continues to crumble under Obama’s rule just as it did under George Bush’s rule.

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve Vice Chairman Donald Kohn announced his retirement on March 1, 2010. In his obligatory lament, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke was half right: "The Federal Reserve and the country owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Don Kohn." What is good for the Fed is generally not good for the country. The influence of Donald Kohn supports this view.

Washington Must Ban U.S. Credit Derivatives as Traders Demand Gold / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongress should act immediately to abolish credit default swaps on the United States, because these derivatives will foment distortions in global currencies and gold. Failure to act now will only mean the U.S. will be forced to act after these "financial weapons of mass destruction" levy heavy casualties. These obligations now settle in euros, but the end game is to settle them in gold. This is so ripe for speculative manipulation that you might as well cover the U.S. map with a bull's-eye.

Unemployment / Politics / Social Issues

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, the train is pulling out of the station.  Gold has said goodbye to the $1,000 level and is off for northern climes.  It is not your last chance to get on board, but it is your last chance to get on board at these low, low prices.  The hard analysis of the past few months has been identifying the intermediate bottom, but now that that is in it is time to step back and once again focus on the big picture.  Friday’s Wall Street Journal has an excellent article on unemployment and the “minimum wage” law, and this is a very good time to discuss this most important subject.

Does the Financial System need New Guard Rails? / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's finally some good news on the housing front, but it has nothing to do with sales, inventory or interest rates.

How is it possible that after near three years of economic turmoil, with possibly hundreds of TRILLIONs down the rabbit hole—not that anyone is counting or apparently can count—that the geniuses who run our economy still don’t “get” that the sh*t has already hit the fan? How many more jobs and homes have to be lost?
