Why America Will Be the Next Banana Republic / Politics / US Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: The great American tradition of individualism, entrepreneurship and revolution is being systematically undermined by a cadre of financial strongmen bent on turning us into just another "banana republic" - where a subdued and apathetic population is subjugated by a ruling class of wealthy oligarchs.

U.S. China Inevitable Strategic Conflict / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProf Wang Jisi writes: In early 2010, conflicts between China and the US came thick and fast, leading to the most serious political disturbance between the two countries since the plane collision in 2001. At the beginning of April, as the heads of both countries talked over the telephone and Chinese President Hu Jintao attended a nuclear security summit in Washington, Sino-US relations became less tense. Tensions were further eased by the Second China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue held in Beijing in May.

Isolating Iran is Part of the Great Energy Game / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKourosh Ziabari writes: The Middle East is witness to continuous developments these days, such as Iran’s active diplomacy to attract the indispensable 118-member bloc of non-aligned countries to support its nuclear program, the growing isolation of Israel in European countries and within academic circles in the U.S., Arabs’ fears of losing the power game in the Persian Gulf region, and the expansion of illegal settlements of Israel in the West Bank and its unremitting disobedience to United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Tony Blair Must Be Prosecuted For War Crimes / Politics / UK Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Pilger writes: Tony Blair must be prosecuted, not indulged like his mentor Peter Mandelson. Both have produced self-serving memoirs for which they have been paid fortunes. Blair’s will appear next month and earn him £4.6 million. Now consider Britain’s Proceeds of Crime Act. Blair conspired in and executed an unprovoked war of aggression against a defenseless country, which the Nuremberg judges in 1946 described as the "paramount war crime." This has caused, according to scholarly studies, the deaths of more than a million people, a figure that exceeds the Fordham University estimate of deaths in the Rwandan genocide.

The Myth of the American Ethnic Melting Pot / Politics / US Politics

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe classic paradigm for thinking of the “American experience” involves the use of a “melting pot” or “patchwork” metaphor. The basic idea is that the US is a single entity comprised of a wide variety of ethnic/ social groups. This metaphor in turn is used to support the view that the US is a Democracy: a place where “your vote counts” no matter who you are.

Rating Agency Feud: S&P vs. Dagong…For Now / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Dian_L_Chu

It all started almost a month ago when Dagong, the largest credit rating agency in China, took on S&P, Moody’s and Fitch.  Dagong issued its first international sovereign risk report on July 11 by giving 27 countries out of the 50 a markedly different rating than the Western big three.

The Making Up of a President / Politics / US Politics

By: Clifford_F_Thies

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRanking presidents is something of a cottage industry among the intellectual elite. The whole thing started back in 1948, when Arthur Schlesinger conducted a survey of a small but carefully chosen sample of historians to rate the presidents from Washington to Franklin Delano Roosevelt — the not-so-subtle purpose of which was to demonstrate that he (FDR) belonged in the Pantheon of Great Presidents.

Hollywood Promotes War on Iran, "Countdown to Zero" / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRady Ananda writes: Seductive, fascinating and frightening, Countdown to Zero motivates the public to support complete nuclear disarmament and to fear Iran, which is conveniently the next country the US wants to invade. Framed in no-nuke rhetoric, Countdown to Zero is not-so-subtle agitprop. The film relies on conventional geopolitics to whip up conventional audiences into another conventional state of panic. Islamo-terrorists just can’t acquire this technology! This is painfully similar to what we were told prior to the invasion of Iraq.

Poverty and Social Inequality: Should India Set Up a Sovereign Wealth Fund? / Politics / India

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKavaljit Singh writes: New Delhi's proposal to establish a $10-billion sovereign wealth fund should be treated with caution. The necessary preconditions for setting up a SWF are squarely lacking in India. Besides, the purported objectives of the fund to pursue strategic investment opportunities abroad are highly debatable.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThey did not cheat the system. Most came to the United States with little money or formal education. Many came without fluency of the English language. But they worked hard to overcome barriers. They fought wars for this nation. They built this nation. They sacrificed many things for the chance that their children could live the American Dream.

Moving an Inch Closer Towards a Free Market Economy / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Stathis

A few months ago, I discussed the fact that the U.S. really doesn't have a free market economy, as so many claim. Once you spend some time examining the activities of various industries, this becomes clear.

A free market economy provides consumer choice because it fosters an environment for healthy competition.

Major Frauds of Humanity / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Shelby_H_Moore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery one of us is a thief. That includes YOU and me.

We must expect bad outcomes when we are all stealing from each other every day. We have created a system of stealing and we are all complicit in it. When new money is created, purchasing power (value) is stolen from every person holding any money.

2010: Humanity’s Choice As Foreseen by Rudolf Steiner / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was an Austrian philosopher and esotericist and founder of one of the key modern spiritual movements in the West. He is best known for his books and lectures before and after World War I, when he founded the Anthroposophical Society with its present-day headquarters in Dornach, Switzerland. After World War I, Steiner and his work were criticized viciously by right-wing nationalists in Germany, which caused him to give up his residence in Berlin. Among the critics was Adolf Hitler, who attacked him in print as a traitor to Germany for his efforts to promote peace.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGraham’s note: the following is an excerpt from The Phoenix World Views Digest, my socio-economic-political newsletter devoted to presenting what’s really going on in the world. In today’s piece I propose that the US is in fact an oligarchy in which a small handful of corporations “call the shots” via lobbying efforts and other forms of legalized “bribing” of public officials.

How to Look for a Job / Politics / Employment

By: Fred_Sheehan

Unemployment is stuck in a rut. One reason is the tendency to look backwards. Trillions of dollars have been spent (with no end in sight) to bail out financial institutions, homebuilders, and failing industries. The federal government is spending $787 billion on a rejuvenation plan: ARRA - the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. In the bill, $500 million is sequestered to metamorphose former credit-default swap salesmen into nurses and public health workers. Assuming the government wastes half of that money filling a new bureaucracy to administer the training, that still will be a lot of new nurses.

Wildfires and Russian Bureaucracy a Perfect Combination / Politics / Russia

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn July of this year, Moscow has set over 10 temperature records for 130 years of local weather monitoring. Of course, abnormally high temperatures were observed not only in the capital, but nearly on the entire territory of Central Russia, Siberia and the Urals.

It would be very strange if such weather would not bring forest and peat fires.

How Gangsters are Saving the Eurozone / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStephen Fidler writes: Gangsters, drug dealers and criminals engaged in money laundering appear to be helping to shore up the financial stability of the eurozone. That is thanks to the demand, European officials said, for high-denomination banknotes, mainly from 200 euros and 500 euros. The European Central Bank issues these bills for a large profit which is welcome at a time when their response to the financial crisis has cast doubt on their financial strength.

The American Empire is Coming to an End / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

Tradition says when Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown back in 1781 the British played this tune as they marched out of the fortifications in surrender to the American army. Whether this actually happened is open to debate but the loss suffered by the great British Empire to ragtag American forces certainly seemed to the British like the world had indeed turned upside down.

Israel Interference in Lebanon, Spies, Lies and Goodbyes – Part 1 / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

The killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was until recently widely believed to have been perpetrated by the Syrians, or at least on their behalf. It was the assassination of Mr. Hariri that led to the forced departure of Syrian troops from Lebanon as a result of international pressure and wide-ranging opposition from the Lebanese street.
