Russian Spies and Strategic Intelligence / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States has captured a group of Russian spies and exchanged them for four individuals held by the Russians on espionage charges. The way the media has reported on the issue falls into three groups:

  • That the Cold War is back,
  • That, given that the Cold War is over, the point of such outmoded intelligence operations is questionable,
  • And that the Russian spy ring was spending its time aimlessly nosing around in think tanks and open meetings in an archaic and incompetent effort.

Chris Whalen Calls for Reforms, But Gives Crony Capitalism and the Neo-Liberals a Rewrite / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI enjoy Chris Whalen of the Institutional Risk Analyst. His outlook and perspective are generally well-informed and well to the point, fresh and practical.

In his most recent essay titled Building a New American Political Economy, excerpted below, he spends quite a few words in taking Paul Krugman and the stimulus crowd to task, or more accurately, out to the woodshed for what we used to call a 'proper thrashing.'

Global Warming Climate Change Disregarded for Consumers' Comfort / Politics / Climate Change

By: Pravda

Consumers learn to love environmentally clean products promoted by governments and corporations, demonstrating a high degree of loyalty to eco-brands and worrying about climate change. The world is saving resources, using energy-saving devices and counting gallons of water. In Russia this is promoted by the growth of tariffs of natural monopolies.

BP Gulf Oil Gusher: Butterfly Effect, Edge of Chaos & World Wide Summit? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDK Matai writes: Does the flap of a Butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a Tornado in Texas? How we strive for predictability, which eludes us more than ever before, yet we don't often stop to ask ourselves: why? According to the Butterfly Effect, the slightest disturbance in one part of the world can trigger a chain of events that create a hurricane in another part of the world. Let us just think about how fragile the earth is: from volcanoes to earthquakes and from sinkholes to an uncontrollable gusher spewing crude oil and gas at the bottom of the ocean.

U.S. Government Funding Corruption and Waste in Afghanistan / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week, GOP chairman Michael Steele came under fire for daring to say what a lot of Americans already know - that our involvement in Afghanistan is an ill-advised quagmire with no end in sight. After nearly 10 years and approaching $1 trillion spent, the conflict is going nowhere because there is nowhere for it to go. After all, if victory is never really defined, defeat is inevitable.

If he cannot find an employer ready to pay him as much as he would like to earn, he must abate his pretensions. If he refuses, he will not get any job. He remains unemployed.

BP Gulf Oil Gusher: Methane, Climate & Dead Zones / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDK Matai writes: Gas and Methane Levels At Record

As much as one million times the normal level of methane is showing up near the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher, enough potentially to create dead zones in the water. "These are higher levels than we have ever seen at any other location in the ocean itself," according to sources cited by Reuters. The "flow team" of the US Geological Survey estimates that 2,900 cubic feet of natural gas, which primarily contains methane, is being released into the Gulf waters with every barrel of oil.

Tame Financial Speculators By Regulating Speculative Capital Flows / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKavaljit Singh writes: Just days before the G20 summit in Toronto, South Korea and Indonesia announced several policy measures to regulate potentially destabilising capital flows which could pose a threat to their economies and financial systems.

The policy measures announced by South Korea and Indonesia assume greater significance because both countries are members of the G20. In 2010, South Korea chairs the G20.

The E.U. Banking System Stress Test Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe EU banking system is in big trouble. Many of the Union's largest banks are sitting on hundreds of billions of euros in dodgy sovereign bonds and non performing real estate loans. But writing down their losses will deplete their capital and force them to restructure their debt. So the banks are concealing their losses through accounting sleight-of-hand and by borrowing money from the European Central Bank. This has helped to hide the rot at the heart of the system.

How to Fight Conspiracies and Win / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen someone at last discovers that some conspiracy has taken over this or that institution, he gets into a mentality that sees conspiracies everywhere. Anyone who finally accepts the fact that one or more conspiracies have been operating for one or more centuries to control the affairs of his nation, or even the whole world, has a tendency to see everything in terms of conspiracies. He begins to attribute to this or that conspiracy the ability to forecast the future almost perfectly, to control the future almost perfectly, and to thwart all attempts of critics to deflect the conspiracy from its agenda.

Russia Natural Gas Politics vs Germany, Geopolitical Importance of Lubmin / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the postwar history of the Federal Republic, German Chancellors tend to disappear once they pursue political goals that deviate from the Washington global agenda too much. In the case of Gerhard Schroeder, it involved two unforgiveable “sins.” The first was his open opposition to the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. The second, far  more serious strategically, was his negotiations with Russia’s Putin to bring a major new natural gas pipeline directly from Russia, bypassing then-hostile Poland, to Germany. Today the first section of that Nord Stream gas pipeline has reached the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern coastal town of Lubmin on the Baltic Sea, making Lubmin into a geopolitical pivot for Europe and Russia.

Big U.S. Banks Laundered Money From Drug Trafficking / Politics / Banking Stocks

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWells Fargo, Bank of America, Citigroup, American Express and Western Union have profited over the years with laundering money from drug trafficking and only pay minimal fines, with no executive jailed when authorities were able to detect illicit transactions. These U.S. banks have admitted failing to comply with federal regulations and laws to control money laundering, participating in the transfer of billions of dollars in illicit funds from drug smuggling in Mexico.
