Reasons Why American Workers Hate the State / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Petras writes: Why does the rightwing attack on “Big Government” increasingly resonate with working people?

Liberals claim wage and salaried workers are acting against their “self-interest”, citing government welfare programs like social security and unemployment payments. Progressives argue that workers hostile to the state are ‘racists”, “fundamentalists” and/or irrational, blinded by misplaced fears of threats to individual freedoms.

Washington Mafia's $20 Billion Shakedown of BP / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Davies writes: I was very disappointed to hear how the D.C. Mafia had subjected BP to what the possibly vertebrate Joe Barton (R-TX) called a "shakedown" for $20B to compensate those hurt by its oil spill, but had also made the company agree not to cap that sum (meaning the bill may be higher yet) and to let a government nominee administer the payments (meaning it is almost sure to be higher yet).

Hyperinflation or Deflation? "Deficit Terrorists" Strike in the UK, USA is Next / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, England’s new government said it would abandon the previous government’s  stimulus program and introduce the austerity measures required to pay down its estimated $1 trillion in debts.  That means cutting public spending, laying off workers, reducing consumption, and increasing unemployment and bankruptcies.  It also means shrinking the money supply, since virtually all “money” today originates as loans or debt.  Reducing the outstanding debt will reduce the amount of money available to pay workers and buy goods, precipitating depression and further economic pain.

EXTEND & PRETEND: A Matter of National Security / Politics / UK Economy

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is something seriously wrong in America. We all sense it, but few in the mainstream media are willing to touch it or can effectively articulate it within the public’s sound-bite oriented attention span.

It isn’t just about the remnants of the financial crisis; it isn’t the protracted jobs recession and slow recovery; it isn’t the trillions of dollars in deficit spending; it isn’t the degree of rampant financial malfeasants. It is something deeper which reaches into the soul of who we are as a people and society. It will soon be the central theme to your investment strategy and financial security.

The Western Way of Life is Collapsing / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Age of Enlightenment was born sometime around the beginning of the eighteenth century. A mere three-quarters of a century later, industrialization ushered in the Age of Endarkenment, and human life has grown more and more perilous ever since. The Golden Age of capitalism cannot be recreated merely by applying the right mixture of spending, subsidies, re-regulation, and international agreements. Because the economic advantages of industrialization rely on overproduction and profit, balanced trade is impossible if the advantage is to be preserved; it entails no economic profit. Industrialism is a Hegelian synthesis which embodies the forces for its own destruction. The greatest threat to the Western Way of Life is the Western Way of Life itself.

By: David_Knox_Barker

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClearly international free market capitalism is the midst of the greatest long wave debt crisis in history; including government, corporate and personal debt. Overcapacity plagues virtually every industry around the globe from Taipei to Toledo to Timbuktu. Debt, overcapacity, and their impact on market prices are the key long wave winter season trends that have yet to run their course. The world now faces the final years of this long wave decline and winter season that will deliver global economic and financial upheaval until 2012.

Just as seniors falling into the Medicare drug benefit donut hole begin to get the $250 checks meant to calm their fears about our new healthcare legislation, the rest of us would do well to remember the abuses of the for-profit healthcare system that will continue and even accelerate in the coming years.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, more than 14,000 nurses from Minnesota hospitals staged a 1-day walk-out as a sign of protest over excessive patient loads.   

The nurses are right about staffing shortages and overloaded responsibilities.

However, their solution – hiring more nurses will add further costs pressures to America’s unsustainable healthcare bubble.

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are seeing the end of an era. The trade union movement in the United States has declined for the last 30 years. It is now in its final stages. The only area of the economy in which unions still have any degree of clout is in government. The union movement barely functions outside of government employment. Today, as states and municipalities face massive deficits, the union movement is threatened with destruction.

The Kyrgyzstan Crisis and the Russian Dilemma / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Zeihan writes: STRATFOR often discusses how Russia is on a bit of a roll. The U.S. distraction in the Middle East has offered Russia a golden opportunity to re-establish its spheres of influence in the region, steadily expanding the Russian zone of control into a shape that is eerily reminiscent of the old Soviet Union. Since 2005, when this process began, Russia has clearly reasserted itself as the dominant power in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Ukraine, and has intimidated places like Georgia and Turkmenistan into a sort of silent acquiescence.
