Global Financial Dominance and Control, All Roads Lead to Goldman Sachs / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time, Goldman Sachs shunned publicity.  During the period from 1930 to 1969, Sydney Weinberg ran Goldman Sachs where he developed a staunch corporate cultural aversion to publicity.  During the 1970s, a tandem of John Weinberg and John Whitehead assumed the reigns of leadership at Goldman Sachs.  Whitehead left the company in 1984 to enter public life.  John Weinberg carried on in the same vein as his father Sydney – shunning publicity – to the point where he hired a man to keep his name and his firm's out of the press.

By: Frank_Shostak

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes It Make Sense to Resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act?

Why Should WE Make Sacrifices to Offset Global Warming? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world’s 6.7 billion people have been swamped in recent years by a virtual tsunami of non-stop publicity conveying the universal theme of imminent environmental disaster. We have been told almost daily that calamity can be averted only if we immediately demonstrate our good sense by doing whatever is necessary to halt the rise of man-made greenhouse gases.  Cited as the primary villain is a naturally occurring substance known to all as carbon dioxide which is also created by burning fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal.

U.S. and Canada are Global Warming Scapegoats / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiven universal awareness and belief that greenhouse gases are placing our world on the brink of imminent disaster, we should obligate ourselves to examine the origins of the climate change issue. For many people awareness and concern has emerged as if by stealth.  Our children arrive home from school all wide-eyed and anxious about the imminent extinction of polar bears, melting polar ice caps and glaciers.  Frequently, too, we see programs on television which portray what seems to be a world hell-bent on its own destruction and predicting an imminent environmental Armageddon.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRumor has it that Timothy Geithner is on his way out as Treasury Secretary, due to his involvement in the AIG scandal that is now unraveling in hearings before the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Bob Chapman writes in The International Forecaster:

Each day brings more revelations of efforts of the NY Fed and Goldman Sachs to hide the details of the criminal conspiracy of the AIG bailout. . . . This is a real crisis on the scale of Watergate. Corruption at its finest.

Making an Immortal Body of Truth / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_C_Cook

As the world slides closer daily to what the Shivapuri Baba described as a 6,000-year societal catastrophe, it is certainly curious to observe how those who fancy themselves the rulers of mankind continue to attempt to gather all power, authority, and wealth into their hands.

Global Warming, A Man-made Crisis: Part 1 / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClimate warming has become so universally accepted that it is worth one's reputation to raise even a tepid question regarding warming wisdom or its factual accuracy. Ordinary civic minded citizens who dare to exhibit the temerity to raise serious questions about the merits of man-made CO2 are routinely dismissed as uninformed troglodytes. Scientists who question prevailing climate wisdom are shunned by professional colleagues and shut out from lucrative government research grants. Often their careers are sidelined and professional reputations damaged, sometimes beyond repair, simply because they insist that the methodologies of science be respected.

Will Obama Destroy Any Hope of U.S. Energy Independence? / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Charles S. Brant, Energy Correspondent, Casey Research. The U.S. consumes nearly three times the amount of oil that it produces domestically on a daily basis. How can this statistic get any worse, you might ask?

Imagine in 2010 the Obama administration persuades Congress to pass a budget that results in a reduction of domestic oil production by 10% - 20%, making the supply/demand imbalance even more lopsided. Foreign oil companies will gain a distinct advantage over American domestic operators as an unintended consequence of these proposals.

That is a promise.”
