America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: Stewart_Dougherty

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFOREWORD: At certain times, focusing on the big picture is important not just for investment success, but for personal welfare, and even survival. We believe such times are here. It is estimated that 98% of Americans have never held a gold coin in their hands. Yet 100% of Americans regularly handle Federal Reserve Notes. From a contrarian standpoint, the financial message from those two statistics is clear. Even so, gold is much more than money or an investment medium; it stands for liberty and throughout history has facilitated escape and ensured freedom.

Surpreme Court Ruling that Corporations are People Too? / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThursday’s landmark Supreme Court decision has been called everything from proper to despicable and misguided.  Clearly in the historical realm, every nation, empire, and circumstance of human organization has clear signposts that mark first progress, then the eventual destruction of the entity. That is not meant to be melodramatic; it is simply the natural progression of societies. If you don’t agree, ask the Greeks, Romans, and British. So where does Thursday’s decision fit into America’s progression?

Obama, Now Fire Geithner and Summers / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_C_Cook

The new restraints on bank lending for speculation proposed yesterday by President Barack Obama follow the advice of former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker but will be much more credible if the president now fires Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and National Economic Council director Lawrence Summers.

How to Empower Shareholders and Improve Corporate Management in Two Easy Steps / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: wrote last week that Wall Street bonuses should be cut back by the shareholders, not by the government.

Well, a reader wrote back correctly to remind me that the majority of shareholders are institutions that would not want to antagonize major corporations that gave out fund management mandates for their pension funds and 401(k)s by agitating against top management bonuses.

Does the Massachusetts Massacre Mean Obama's Healthcare Plan is Dead? / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the wake of the Massachusetts massacre, inquiring minds are wondering "Is Healthcare Dead?"

That is certainly a good question given senator-elect Scott Brown's repeated statements he would be the 41st senator to reject it. However, that possibility needs to be balanced with the possibility the house accepts the senate version of the bill as is, or the house attempts a legislative move known as reconciliation (allowed only once per year).

Nigeria’s Constitutional Dilemma Coming to an Unpredictable Head / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNigerian Pres. Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, 59, through failing health, is clearly no longer in control of the Government. Some are proclaiming that the "post-Yar'Adua era" has begun in Nigerian politics, but the reality is that there is still much maneuvering going on to plan the succession to the Presidency, even though the fiction of "business as usual" has become paper-thin.

The Religion of Socialism and the Profit of Reform / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Frank_Chodorov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is this to be said in behalf of avowed and doctrinaire socialists, that their faith in the State is sublime. To them, the institution of political power is the unerring shepherd of the flock, the guide to the Good Society; it is also the antidote for all evil, the maker of abundance, the embodiment of justice, the sublimation of human aspirations. That they believe. To be sure, they affect an elaborate rationalism, something they call dialectical materialism, which in turn rests on a verbal agglomeration known as Marxian economics. Logic and fact without end have been applied to these notions to prove that they are only notions. But all this cerebration has turned out to be sheer waste of effort as far as influencing the true worshipers is concerned. They still believe. One cannot help but marvel at, and admire, their devotional integrity.

Nation Building Should Begin At Home / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been writing for the last two years or so that the strategy of the Federal Reserve has been to engineer a “soft landing” from the horrendous financial bubbles that were created during the disastrous presidency of George W. Bush. Since President Obama came to power in January 2009, his administration has been partners with the Federal Reserve in trying to do this.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Shaman writes: The world has come to a line in the sand.  Over one and a half billion people live in abject poverty today.  Millions die each year of malnutrition or from treatable disease.  This condition has existed for decades and yet help from the rich nations of the world has been inadequate, inefficient and achingly slow.

Has Obama Become Bush II? / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBarack Obama's election seemed an anomaly, but clearly it was disgust with his predecessor that drove him from obscurity to the presidency.

Obama's "outside-inside" strategy inspired millions of new voters. He organised, rallied new voters, used social networks and invoked change orientated slogans with more symbolism than substance.

NHS Spending Cuts Mean Sheffield's Worst GP Surgeries Could Close / Politics / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The British economy is in the midst of a deep debt crisis that risks a collapse into a hyperinflationary bust. The root of the problem lies in the fact that the government spends £180 billion more on public spending than it earns, i.e. government revenues are £500 billion, and government expenditure is £680 billion (2009-10 est). The deficit of £180 billion is at 14% of GDP and is not sustainable that requires an urgent and near immediate cut in the deficit to below 6% of GDP to prevent igniting an out of control inflationary debt spiral.

U.S. - China Growing Military Tensions / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though the U.S. military budget is almost ten times that of China's (with a population more than four times as large) and Washington plans a record $708 billion defense budget for next year compared to Russia spending less than $40 billion last year for the same, China and Russia are portrayed as threats to the U.S. and its allies. China has no troops outside its borders; Russia has a small handful in its former territories in Abkhazia, Armenia, South Ossetia and Transdniester. The U.S. has hundreds of thousands of troops stationed in six continents.

U.S. Government is Too Big to Succeed / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission kicked off their first round of hearings on the causes of the economic meltdown on Wall Street. The commission is being compared to the the Pecora Commission launched in 1932 to investigate the causes of the Great Depression. The Pecora commission is beloved by those who believe the solution to every problem is more laws because it was used to justify a number of new laws, including Glass-Steagall.

Media and Political Hysteria Over Yemen Hides a Deeper Strategic Matrix of Long-Term Importance / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS and Western European political leaders have begun to focus on Yemen as a source of projected instability and as a haven for jihadist terrorism against the West.

This simplistic and overly narrow view has largely been a reaction to media reporting of the links of alleged (and unsuccessful) Nigerian-born terrorist bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, to a radical Yemeni group, and to intense ongoing fighting between insurgents and Yemeni and Saudi government forces on the Yemen-Saudi border.
