Green Jobs from the Government Not Gonna Happen / Politics / Employment

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Green Jobs Don't Exist in a Free Market" was the headline for Tom DeWeese, writing at NewsWithViews.com, which is exactly right; the only jobs that exist in a free market are those supplying real demand for, as an example, hamburgers, pizza, fried chicken and tacos, which has resulted in fast-food restaurants supplying them to be located on, seemingly, every other block in the Whole Freaking Country (WFC).

The Strategic Ramifications of a US-Led Withdrawal from Afghanistan / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States and the NATO allies are preparing to disengage and soon withdraw from Afghanistan and even the most vocal advocates of the "long-term commitment" do not anticipate more than five years of active US and NATO involvement. All the local key players — in Kabul, Islamabad, and countless tribal and localized foci of power — are cognizant and are already maneuvering and posturing to deal with the new reality.

According to the Wall Street Journal, as recently as June 30 the rating agencies thought that the provision for increased accountability had been omitted. They were wrong:

Signing Financial Reform Is Signing Up For A New Struggle To Make It Real / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith eleven pens for souvenirs, President Obama signed the financial reform bill in a rare celebratory moment. Significantly, the ceremony did not take place in the Oval Office but up the block at the Ronald Reagan building perhaps to signal recalcitrant Republicans that this is a cause they should sign on to.

The Death of the Postindustrial Dream / Politics / Economic Theory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRemember postindustrialism?  Not long ago, this catchphrase was supposed to define  America’s future: no more grubby hard industries, just a clean bright world of services and high technology.  Its most succinct formulation is as follows:
Manufacturing is old hat and America is moving on to better things.

Dean Baker: Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform Was Doomed From the Start / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI thought this interview with Dean Baker was interesting. I obviously do not agree with everything that he says, especially regarding the deficits and the attitude of the markets towards them. The US markets are far removed from being efficient mechanisms of capital allocation these days, and as such are unreliable indicators of just about everything except the latest trading fads and speculative excess.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough the Ugandan government can boost the security of its fledgling oil industry from future terrorist attacks that may scare away certain investors, Africa analysts doubt violence replicating the twin bombs that struck during the World Cup final is likely.

Somali militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for explosions that tore through the capital Kampala July 11 and killed more than 70 people.

BP's Scheme to Swindle the "Small People" / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDahr Jamail writes: Clint Guidry, the Louisiana shrimp harvester representative on the Louisiana Shrimp Task Force created by executive order of Gov. Bobby Jindal, has called BP "liars" and "killers."

Gulf Coast fishermen and others with lost income claims against BP are outraged by a recent announcement that the $20 billion government-administered claim fund will subtract money they earn by working on the cleanup effort from any future damage claims against BP. This move, according to lawyers in Louisiana working on behalf of Louisiana fishermen and others affected by the BP oil disaster, contradicts an earlier BP statement in which the company promised it would do no such thing.

The Soviet NY Times Our Own Lying Pravda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many myths about the current political scene, although one never would know it from reading the New York Times, and especially its editorial pages. For example, Paul Krugman continues to insist that Herbert Hoover followed the "liquidationist" advice of his treasury secretary, Andrew Mellon, and followed an "austerity" path. However, as Murray N. Rothbard noted in his classic America’s Great Depression, Hoover intervened in the economy at levels never seen before in U.S. History.

Large Scale Government Economic Stimulus, Why Not Another World War? / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is overwhelming agreement among economists that the Second World War was responsible for decisively ending the Great Depression. When asked why the wars in Iran and Afghanistan are failing to make the same impact today, they often claim that the current conflicts are simply too small to be economically significant.

When There is No Rule of Law / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week ended with some promising news on finally stopping the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, the administration still seems to believe that shutting down working oil wells is a higher priority than effectively dealing with the broken one. They are again issuing a moratorium on off-shore drilling, while maintaining a de facto ban on new permits even for shallow water drilling, which they previously stated would be unaffected. The courts have twice declared this unconstitutional, over 70 percent of the people see this as unreasonable, yet the administration seems determined to simply end off-shore drilling, at least for those producers that cannot afford to sit idle for an unknown period of time until the ban is lifted.

Welfare and Warfare, Paying the Price for the Baby Boomers Generation / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost people in America associate the Democratic Party with spending on welfare programs and the Republican Party with spending on warfare. Until reading Niall Ferguson’s brilliant The Ascent of Money, I never realized that welfare and warfare have gone hand in hand for over a century. The immortal German warmonger Otto von Bismarck was the first politician to introduce social insurance legislation in the 1880s. His reasoning was not strictly humanitarian. According to Bismarck, “A man who has a pension for his old age is much easier to deal with than a man without that prospect.” Bismarck was a shrewd politician who realized that when you provide people something for nothing, they will vote for you.

The Trouble With the Tea Parties / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBrian Wilson writes: Doesn’t look as if I’ll be invited to be the Featured Speaker at any more Tea Parties.

Not that I ever had been – but there was a time I was high on the TP Invite List as someone who knew a thing or three about Media Stuff and was willing to share with the Newly Interested at their "learning meet-ups." Many of those "cut-out" sessions were – and continue to be – quite good. Fresh faces, yearning to learn free all the things they were never taught (or forgot) about the Constitution, the vision of the Founding Dads as well other stuff they never knew about broadcast and print media, promotion, advertising and assorted "mass com" things.

Robustness and Fragility, A Lecture by Dr. Nassim Taleb / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Daniel_Bruno

He starts the sold-out presentation with a tale of two readers on a business trip. Settled in for a long flight, Dr. Taleb pulls a book out of his bag while the fellow next to him pulls out the fashionable,expensive, razor thin, 500 book capacity Kindle to pass the time. A conversation ensues and comparisons are made. Common sense and marketing tell us that the Kindle is far more efficient, But Dr. Taleb is not so sure. He has reams of work on 1990s era floppy discs that he can no longer access. But books, the product of technology essentially unchanged in 500 years, present no such problem and will outlast the Kindle when it too becomes obsolete.

BP Gulf Oil Well Cap, Pressure At The Wellhead And What It Really Means / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dr_Tom_Termotto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBP and the Coast Guard are watching the pressure at the wellhead very, very closely because of what it will mean for the future prospects of this well. Pressure readings under a critical threshold usually mean that there may be leaking elsewhere in the system. If there is a single leak, it will be more easily diagnosed and remedied depending on where it is. If there is more than one leak present, a whole set of different challenges emerges. Most importantly, keeping the system under pressure, when leaks exist anywhere, will inevitably increase the potential for those leaks to worsen.
