The Tobin Tax Plan Wall Street Hates … But Can’t Seem to Kill / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently came out in favor of a "Tobin tax" - a small tax on financial transactions, proportionate to the size of the transaction. The Tobin tax idea also has been proposed by Britain's former prime minister, Gordon Brown, and was proposed in Congress by U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-OR.

What's Really Wrong with the U.S. Health Care Industry / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Vijay_Boyapati

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn May 3, 2010, I gave a talk to a class of students studying public health policy at the University of Washington. I began the talk by asking the students how many of them believed that the current healthcare system in America was flawed; everyone in the class raised their hand. I then asked how many of them believed that the recently passed healthcare legislation, supported by President Obama, was a step in the right direction in reforming America's healthcare system. Once again, everyone raised their hand.

Property Rights, Liberty, and Immigration / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlenn Jacobs writes: Libertarian philosophy is based on the concept of self-ownership. Human beings own themselves. When we rightfully acquire property, either by making first claim to that property (homesteading) or through voluntary transfer with another person or persons, that property becomes part of our lives, and thus we lay claim to ownership of that property as we would our own bodies.

Television, The Reason Why Asia Will Overtake America / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAsians manufacture cheap televisions and sophisticated home theater audio systems. Americans buy them. Then we use them, expensively. The cost in forfeited productivity of watching television is greater than any other single waste factor in the West's economy. The only thing that comes close is Web media. TV consumes on average 4 to 5 hours a day of every American's life. The statistics are really amazing.

Web-based time consumption is catching up, especially among teenagers. Teens spend between 7 and 8 hours a day on media-related leisure.

U.S. Recession Breeds Escalating Violent Crime / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

The Wall Street Journal reported that violent crime is down in the big cities in the U.S., saying this breaks the pattern between economic downturns and an increase in crime. Supposedly this is because policing has advanced, not because human nature has changed. I do not believe the article is plausible.

Its timing is awful. Its fate is uncertain. Yet its sponsors felt it had to be done now.

U.S. Government Has Become An Overgrown Monstrosity / Politics / US Politics

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday, the number of Americans who are able to financially survive without any reliance on the U.S. government whatsoever is declining at a staggering rate. Whether it is through direct handouts, entitlement programs, student loans, government bailouts, government contracts or direct employment, the truth is that now a solid majority of the American people are at least partially dependent on the federal government for their economic survival.

Germany After the E.U. and the Russian Scenario / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDiscussions about Europe currently are focused on the Greek financial crisis and its potential effect on the future of the European Union. Discussions these days involving military matters and Europe appear insignificant and even anachronistic. Certainly, we would agree that the future of the European Union towers over all other considerations at the moment, but we would argue that scenarios for the future of the European Union exist in which military matters are far from archaic.

Merkel's Savage Blitz through Euroland, Germany Pushing Eurozone To Cliffs Edge / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAngela Merkel has let a minor brush-fire on the periphery turn into a raging inferno that's sweeping across the continent. Absent Berlin's fumbling diplomatic effort and its ferocious attachment to Hooverian economics, the Greek matter would have been over by now. Instead, the fire continues to burn while the German Chancellor pushes the eurozone closer and closer to the cliff. And what for; to prove that prodigal spending by the member states (Greece) mustn't go unpunished? Is that what this is all about? Is Merkel really willing to break up the EU just to prove her point and to accommodate her towering sense of self righteousness?

The New Chaos / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

In last week's edition of Asia Times, Chan Akya correctly induces that the "new world" is one "where the definition of order is a state of continued chaos." He is speaking as an expert generalist about economics and the markets, but so too is this chaos found within every aspect of human society at this time and, I maintain, increasingly for some time to come.

Congress Writes More Blank Checks for the Military Industrial Complex / Politics / Government Spending

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Congress, with its insatiable appetite for spending, is set to pass yet another "supplemental" appropriations bill in the next two weeks. So-called supplemental bills allow Congress to spend beyond even the 13 annual appropriations bills that fund the federal government. These are akin to a family that consistently outspends its budget, and therefore needs to use a credit card to make it through the end of the month.

Fix the Economic Recession By Undermining Public Sector Workers Rights / Politics / Social Issues

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the state of Oregon, the most widely distributed paper, the Oregonian, announced on its front page that the state should expect “Ten Years of Pain.” The perpetrator: the budget crisis — $2.5 billion in the coming two-year budget cycle, with $2 billion projected deficits until 2019. Sadly, these depressing numbers assume that the economy will recover, a belief lacking any credible evidence.

Will the Financial Reform Bill Really Rein In Wall Street? / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: The Senate on Thursday approved an extensive financial reform bill that would give Washington broad new powers over Wall Street. However, there's still a question over whether the bill will really be able to rein in Wall Street, or if it will simply become another broken barrier tripping up the free market.

Gerald Celente with Max Keiser on Food Riots, Tent Cities, Mob Rule / Politics / Great Depression II

By: Videos

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Here we are in 2012. Food riots, tax protests, farmer rebellions, student revolts, squatter digins, homeless uprisings, tent cities, ghost malls, general strikes, bossnappings, kidnappings, industrial saboteurs, gang warfare, mob rule, terror. How could it have come to this? Across the nation and around the world, it was a variation of the same theme. In the United States it was called “Obamageddon,” in the rest of the world it was “The Greatest Depression.” Did no one see it coming? Yes and no. There were intelligent, informed people who saw it. But for the most part they didn’t want to believe their eyes and didn’t want to hear it.

The 1099 Tsunami in the Healthcare Insurance Bill / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this year, some staffer in some office on Capitol Hill dutifully inserted a provision into the health insurance bill that will force businesses to file 1099 forms on every transaction with another business for over $600. Buy a $601 used car for your business? You must file a 1099. The Cato Institute describes this law.

Financial Reform Is Here But Banks Are Still Too Big To Jail / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was among those raving about the passage of the financial reform bill. And now I am just raving,

“Unbelievable,” said one advocate who hoped for the best but expected the worst. He was amazed it even passed. The wise men in the media immediately began making comparisons with the New Deal. The pundits praised the President and the fact that a handful of Republicans did not just say no this time.

U.S. Senate Passes Fake Financial "Reform" Bill / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Senate passed a financial "reform" bill today by a 59-39 vote which won't fix any of the core problems in the financial system, and won't prevent the next financial crisis.

The bill doesn't include the Volcker Rule (it wasn't even debated), doesn't break up or even substantially rein in the too big to fails, and doesn't force transparency in the derivatives market.
