Restoring the U.S. Constitution / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMore and more, people say they are in favor or returning to the historic meaning of the United States Constitution, a small federal government limited in its powers to those directly granted by the text of the Constitution. Having gone so far away from this model of government, such a return seems an impossible dream.

The Oil Slick Cover-up: BP's Crude Politics and the Looming Environmental Mega-Disaster / Politics / Corporate News

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have been informed by sources in the US Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Florida Department of Environmental Protection that the Obama White House and British Petroleum (BP), which pumped $71,000 into Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign -- more than John McCain or Hillary Clinton, are covering up the magnitude of the volcanic-level oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and working together to limit BP's liability for damage caused by what can be called a "mega-disaster."

Let Goldman Sachs Interrogate the SEC / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince April 16, 2010, when the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicted Goldman Sachs on fraud charges, the bank must approach each day wishing it could stay in bed. New charges and rumors of lawsuits swirl around the firm. Goldman will have its day (or, years) in court, but the government agency that rolled the snowball down the mountain should also sit in the dock.

Economic and Social Crisis in Nigeria / Politics / Africa

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKola Ibrahim writes: As workers in Nigeria celebrate this year’s Workers’ Day, the political challenges before the working and poor people is more vital today more than ever before. That the capitalist political class has severally and collectively plunder the huge resources of the nation, while the poor people go hungry, is no more news. For the past almost eleven years of civil rule, workers have fought tooth and nail to gain better living but every demand of workers in this regard is met with stiff opposition from the capitalist ruling class at all levels.

Cutting Public Debt, Economic Science or Class War? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHugo Radice writes: In The Bullet no.345, Ingo Schmidt showed how the credit rating agencies have sparked an assault by international bondholders on the sovereign debt of Greece, where workers are being made to pay heavily for the fiscal crisis of the state.

The following day, April 28th, the London-based Institute for Fiscal Studies made a major intervention in the British election campaign, publishing a report which called on the three main parties to ‘come clean’ about their plans for dealing with Britain's very own fiscal crisis – a deficit in 2009-10 of £163-billion, or around 12% of GDP. This prompted me to ask the question: why are the three parties, and all the British media, accepting without question the need to cut the deficit?

Who Judges the Judges: Reporters Without Borders seems to have a geopolitical agenda / Politics / Social Issues

By: F_William_Engdahl

An organization calling itself Reporters Without Borders (RWB; French: Reporters sans frontières, or RSF) has just named Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, China’s President Hu Jintao, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kazakhstan’s Nursultan Nazarbayev and Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko to their list of Forty Worst Predators of Press Freedom for 2010. Most significant about their list of ‘bad guys’ is the geopolitical relation of those leaders and those countries to the current ‘enemies list’ of the US State Department. That is no accident, as becomes clear when we look more closely at who funds RWB.

Financial Fight Club: Ackman's Hedge Fund Vs. Wall Street's Ponzi Machine / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen nobody seems to be losing money, nobody cares. If a corrupt scheme is "making money," everyone involved--from the culprits to the dupes--viciously attacks anyone who tries to expose it. Bill Ackman, manager of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P., learned this lesson the hard way.

The Ulterior Motive Behind the Greek Bailout / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Sol_Palha

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"A mere friend will agree with you, but a real friend will argue." ~ Russian Proverb

Before we discuss this issue lets focus on some facts. Many individuals claim that Greece has to be bailed out to maintain stability in the financial markets. This is a bogus argument, in the short term it might be true, but in the long term it just delays the day of reckoning and makes the situation infinitely worse. You do not help an alcoholic by chastising him and then allowing him free access to booze; it won't work.

Debt Crisis Triggers Global Crisis of Legitimacy / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial panics are an integral part of capitalism. So are economic recessions. The system generates them and it becomes stronger because of them. Like forest fires, they are painful when they occur, yet without them, the forest could not survive. They impose discipline, punishing the reckless, rewarding the cautious. They do so imperfectly, of course, as at times the reckless are rewarded and the cautious penalized. Political crises — as opposed to normal financial panics — emerge when the reckless appear to be the beneficiaries of the crisis they have caused, while the rest of society bears the burdens of their recklessness. At that point, the crisis ceases to be financial or economic. It becomes political.

America At The Crossroads And The War On Gold / Politics / US Politics

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery so often a philosophical dilemma becomes real. So it is today. For two thousand years, the message of Christ Jesus influenced and informed the West, if not in deed, then in word. Today, that is no longer so. Today, godless capitalism is threatening to supplant the two millennia reign of Christ’s message of brotherly love—if not in word, then, certainly, in deed.

Hollywood and The Rigging of Financial Markets / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBetting on the Gross Profits of Upcoming Movies - As if attacks from popparazzi and star-crazed fans weren’t enough, Hollywood stars may soon have a literal price put on their heads by investors in the Cantor Exchange, a real-money trading platform where people can bet on the gross profits of upcoming movies.  Sales of The Dark Knight skyrocketed after Heath Ledger died unexpectedly, and so did sales after the deaths of Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.  Will greed-driven investors now be laying in wait for the stars of movies they have sold short?

Was There A Plan to Blow Up The U.S. Economy? / Politics / US Economy

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany people now believe that the financial crisis was not an accident. They think that the Bush administration and the Fed knew what Wall Street was up to and provided their support. This isn't as far fetched as it sounds. As we will show, it's clear that Bush, Greenspan and many other high-ranking officials understood the problem with subprime mortgages and knew that a huge asset bubble was emerging that threatened the economy. But while the housing bubble was more than just an innocent mistake, it doesn't rise to the level of "conspiracy" which Webster defines as "a secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act." It's actually worse than that, because bubblemaking is the dominant policy, and it's used to overcome the structural problems in capitalism itself, mainly stagnation.

Congress Freezes Its Own Pay / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week Congress did something fiscally responsible. It's not very often I can say that. Granted, it was small in the grand scheme of things, but I was glad to be an original cosponsor, along with Congressman Harry Mitchell of Arizona, of a bill to block the automatic pay raise that Congress otherwise receives every year. Every Member of Congress gets this raise unless it is expressly voted down. For the second year in a row Congress has voted to freeze its own pay, which, in a time of skyrocketing deficits and high unemployment, is the very least Congress can do.

Matt Taibbi: The Feds v Goldman Sachs / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom the man who coined Goldman Sachs (GS) the "vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity" ... we have Matt Taibbi's latest take via Rolling Stone. Again, let it be said that some of the best work on our financial oligarchy is being done by a guy in a music magazine. That tells you what a farce corporate media has become. Then again, when almost all outlets are funding the same lobbyist groups (or mirror images) as those funded by the banking cartel... is is surprising?
