Bernanke and Greenspan, Financial Crisis Not Our Fault / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt seems that the primary qualification needed by any chairman of the Federal Reserve is the ability to never admit error, no matter how damning the evidence. During his tenure on the job, Alan Greenspan set the standard for implausible deniability. But in a speech last weekend in Atlanta, current chairman Ben Bernanke did the Maestro one better.

Geithner's New York Federal Reserve Pressured AIG to Delay Disclosures / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wrote a few times in 2008 and early 2009 that as historic and mind bending the times we were living through then were, that when all the details of what was happening behind the scenes leaked out in the coming years ... that's where the truly fascinating information would be found.  How short are memories are - all the furor over the direct handout to investment (and other) banks the world over, led by our friends at Goldman Sachs (GS) via AIG swap agreements - is but a distant memory.

Moving Your Money from Wall Street to Local Community Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent proposal to vote with our feet by shifting our deposits from Wall Street to community banks is a great start. However, community banks are not suffering from a lack of deposits so much as from a lack of the capital they need to make new loans, and investment capital today is scarce. There is a way out of this dilemma, demonstrated for over 90 years by the innovative state of North Dakota -- a partnership in which community banks are backed by the deep pockets of a state-owned bank.

Did Iceland Run a Giant Ponzi Scheme to Scam British Savers? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Iceland is refusing to repay the £2.3 billion that British Tax payers put up to temporarily bailout Icelandic banks operating in the UK following the 2008 Financial Crisis.

The President of Iceland played the victim card by stating that he would refuse to sign a bill passed by the Iceland's Parliament that authorised repayment of £2.3 billion owed as a consequence of the bailout of British savers in Icesave. Instead President Grimsson stated that he would instead hold a referendum on the bill which has ZERO chance of being passed hence there will no repayment.

Are We Solving the ROOT CAUSE of our Economic Problems? / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePicture yourself in the following scenario: you are visiting your doctor complaining of abdominal pains, the doctor gives you a prescription for a strong pain killer. Certainly the pain medicine will help you feel better, but does it really solve the problem that caused the pains in the first place? Could this be the result of appendicitis or some other serious condition? You would rightly question the doctor’s judgment. The doctor is treating the SYMPTOM of the problem, not the ROOT CAUSE.

On The Road To Copenhagen and A Global Food Crisis / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Robert_Palmer


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes the following analysis sound familiar?

“A weakening U.S. dollar is putting upward pressure on oil prices. The shock produced chaos in the West. In the United States, the retail price of a gallon of gasoline rose 50%, consumption dropped by 6.1% from September to February. Underscoring the interdependence of the world societies and economies, oil-importing nations in the noncommunist industrial world saw sudden inflation and economic recession. The energy crisis led to greater interest in renewable energy and spurred research in solar power and wind power as well as increased interest in mass transit.”

Yemen, Behind Al-Qaeda Scenarios, a Geopolitical Oil Chokepoint to Eurasia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn December 25 US authorities arrested a Nigerian named Abdulmutallab aboard a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on charges of having tried to blow up the plane with smuggled explosives. Since then reports have been broadcast from CNN, the New York Times and other sources that he was “suspected” of having been trained in Yemen for his terror mission. What the world has been subjected to since is the emergence of a new target for the US ‘War on Terror,’ namely a desolate state on the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen. A closer look at the background suggests the Pentagon and US intelligence have a hidden agenda in Yemen.

Demise of The United States of America, An American Tragedy / Politics / US Politics

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe demise of a nation is often at the hands of others; and, whereas the usual suspects are its enemies, allies and friends cannot be ruled out.

The 20th century will be remembered as the century when America became a world power. World Wars I and II would decimate the then great powers of the world, e.g. England, Germany, Russia, France,  Japan, etc., leaving the US as the last nation standing—the world’s sole superpower.

Change in The Old Order Impact on Financial Markets and Gold / Politics / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The old order changeth, yielding place to new,
And God fulfills himself in many ways,
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
  Alfred Lord Tennyson, “The Death  Of Arthur.”

“The Death of Arthur” takes place in the 6th century A.D., but Tennyson wrote it in the late 19th century, and the idea he expresses is a 19th century idea.  It is the theme for this first article of 2010 because evidence is coming in that, in the US today, the old order is changing.  If this proves correct for the US, then similar implications may apply for the remainder of the world.

Financial Reforms Are Being Watered Down As Bank Bailouts Are Up / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York, January 4th: It’s a new week, a new year, and some, erroneously believe a new decade. What’s not new is the stranglehold the banks have on our economy quietly stashing more billions for more bonuses while still restricting the flow of credit. Bad loans have been supplanted by no loans.

The Future of the United States, Systemic Fraud, Corruption and Financial Instability / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCraig Harris writes: As we close out 2009 and look forward into 2010 and beyond, this has been a year of near financial catastrophe and monumental change, none of which benefited America or ordinary Americans. Late in 2008 and throughout 2009, events have happened in the US which would have been labeled unfathomable just a few short years ago, and yet already these monumental changes are expected to be filed into the memory hole and Americans are expected to believe nothing has changed.

U.S. Citizens Healthcare Reform Lucky Escape from Making Britain's NHS Mistake / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe proposed healthcare bill appears to ensure that Americans have managed to retain their free market based health care system that will now be subsidised by the Federal Government. Whilst a far from perfect system of health care, however what has been prevented is the U.S. making the same mistake of creating their own version of the NHS, where 70p of every extra £1 spent on it disappears down the NHS spending black hole that now seriously risks bankrupting Britain.
