Coalition Frankenstein Government Child Benefit Cut Middle Class Shocker / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Conservative half of the frankenstein coalition government announced today that it will pull the plug on 1.2 million middle class families by withdrawing Child Benefit for all households (with children) where anyone's gross annual earnings are £44,000 or more (40% tax bracket) from April 2013, which amounts to an effective tax hike of as much as 7% for most of the 1.2 million families.

Free Markets Create Jobs / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

In this struggling economy it is essential for politicians to take a step back and think about what government has been doing to business in this country. In less than 200 years, the free market, property rights, and respect for the rule of law took this nation from a rough frontier to a global economic superpower. Today, however, our nation and our economy clearly are headed in the wrong direction.

Financial Warfare and the Failure of US Military Leadership / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Damon Vrabel writes: The "War on Terror" has become the most successful military diversion in history, having lasted twice as long as WWII so far. While the US and other countries are under severe attack by financial powers through the corporate system and the currency and bond markets, the US military is convinced that people living in remote deserts are the threat. So they’re busy killing some of the poorest people in the world while the country is being attacked by the richest. On the one hand, this is a more impressive Machiavellian chess move than the Calais diversion in WWII that opened up the Normandy attack that would seal Germany’s fate. On the other, it’s just embarrassing to see how easily millions of grown adults can be fooled in the face of the obvious.

Why I Despise Krugman / Politics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I wrote a take-down of Paul Krugman. I pointed out how, in some of his recent posts, Krugman was distorting facts in order to score points for his policy prescriptions. I showed how he was pulling sleight-of-hand with the numbers, so as to play on readers’ misconceptions, and thereby make his rather foolish policy prescriptions sound reasonable.

One Nation Marching on Washington / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been marching on Washington—and covering marches for more years that I can remember. As a kid, I was part of the original March on Washington back in ’63. It was for jobs and freedom.

The jobs part was soon forgotten when the event was reduced to four words,  “I Have A Dream” in the historical memory.  Dr King’s hope for a non-racial America was not the only message, but it is all we remember as anthemic and iconic. Also forgotten, it was an expression of a grass roots movement from below struggling against violent and racist opposition. It was there to showcase that movement, not make a movie.

The Growing Gap Between Rich and Poor in "Classless" America / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack A. Smith writes: The so-called growing rich-poor gap in "classless" America is a euphemism for the existence of an accelerated class struggle against American workers and the poor by a relatively small minority that possesses or has access to great wealth and power.

The Census Bureau reported Sept. 24 that the income differential between rich and poor Americans was greater in 2009 than any time since such records were kept.

U.S. and China Steel Giants Continue To Battle / Politics / Metals & Mining

By: Anthony_David

The US recently filed two new cases against China at the World Trade Organization (WTO) for allegedly violating global trade rules and discriminating against credit card companies and steel makers of the US. While one case challenges China’s imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on a specialty steel product from the US, the other is related to trade barriers in the electronic payment processing market. China refuses to allow the independent functioning of US based credit and debit card companies keen to enter China’s market, and all companies must function through a Chinese entity.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleApparently, the use of scare tactics works well for a population whose minds have been hijacked by the corporate-controlled media establishment. For instance, a few years ago, President Bush and his neo-con clan used the WMD scare tactic in order to justify the invasion of Iraq. More scare tactics were used to pass the unconstitutional Patriot Act. (1) (2)

BMA, NHS GP Doctors Do Not Want Competition, Value for Money or Patient Choice / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe British Medical Association (BMA) representing NHS GP Doctors has belatedly gone on the offensive against the coalition government's plans for reforming the NHS by introducing a market for competing GP consortiums to manage most of the NHS £100 billion budget. NHS GP's do not want competition because it would mean a more commercial health service where patients are able to freely move to the better run GP surgeries which risks putting failing GP surgeries out of business and fellow GP's out of work.

Remedies for Our Ailing Healthcare Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_Elias

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat is the importance of $148 and $7,285?

Answer: Both represent the U.S. healthcare expenditures per capita: the former in 1960, the latter in 2007.

In 2007, the United States spent more per capita on healthcare than any nation in the world, excluding Luxembourg, Monaco, and Norway, which spent slightly more. Yet, the mortality parameters suggest otherwise: our worldwide ranking for life expectancy and infant mortality are 50 and 45, respectively.

Obama's War Against Pakistanis / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

I watched an interview with Bob Woodward about his new book, Obama's War. It was mostly inside-dopsterish Woodward at his worst. But at the end a young anchor asked him what the U.S. attacks in Pakistan were going to produce in the near future. He smiled in his all-knowing and impish way, said he could not really say [of course], but "I think you should strap yourself in!" Translation: you ain't seen nothing yet, so hang on Sloopy and fasten your seatbelt for a wild ride ahead.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMurray Sabrin writes: Paul Krugman wears many hats – Princeton University professor, New York Times columnist, Nobel Laureate in Economics (2008), prolific author of scholarly books and journal articles, and now president of the Eastern Economic Association. The EEA is a regional scholarly group which publishes a journal and holds an annual academic conference in New York City every other year.

Another Domino Falls: UK’s Leading Scientific Body Retreats on Climate Change / Politics / Climate Change

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Henningsen writes: The UK’s leading scientific body has decided to rewrite its own definitive guide on climate change, now admitting that it is “not known” how much warmer the planet will become.

The Royal Society has released a new guide which outlines its retreat from its former vanguard stance on the threat of climate change and man-made global warming. The decision to update their scientific guide came after 43 of its members complained that the previous versions failed to take into account the opinion of climate change sceptics.
