The Fed as Giant Fiat Currency Counterfeiter / Politics / Central Banks

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSan Jose State economics professor Jeffrey Rogers Hummel tells all his students that the easiest way to understand the Federal Reserve is to think of it as a giant, legalized counterfeiter. I had always known that the Fed and other central banks were like counterfeiters, but I still thought that the actual mechanics of open-market operations and so forth actually provided some important distinctions.

Isle of Man, The Greatest Tax Haven? / Politics / Taxes

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNathan Blevins writes:The Call of Ellan Vannin - Freedom isn’t some fanciful creature of the imagination, like Bigfoot. It actually exists, and I’ve seen it. For in the year of our Lord, 2006, I had the marvellous privilege of fulfilling a lifelong personal dream: the dream of travelling to an enchanted place I’d always wished to visit. Well, perhaps I’d not held the dream that long. For you see, it was roughly 6 or 7 years ago that I was reading some smashing stuff from fellow liberty lover, Ron Holland, when I happened upon a trivia question of his that gave me pause:

Iraq War Inquiry Shows Blair the British Neo-con / Politics / UK Politics

By: Submissions

Alan Hart writes: Putting Tony Blair on trial would be much too cruel. The man is ill, delusional, quite possibly to the point of madness. What he needs most of all is psychiatric help. Any doubts I might have had about that diagnosis were removed by his six-hour presentation to the Chilcot Inquiry of his reasons for joining the neo-conned “Dubya” Bush in the war on Iraq.

U.S. Government Spending Freeze Not Likely / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week politicians in Washington made a few things clear about how they really feel about the state of the union. First, they are beginning to hear the growing discontent with the size and scope of government and the broken promises that keep piling up. Certain events in Massachusetts recently made that statement loud, clear and unavoidable. In the face of those events, the powers that be made the determination that some populist rhetoric was in order, and the idea of a spending freeze in Washington was proposed, albeit with several caveats. These caveats to the proposed spending freeze ensure that we are not at any real risk of actually doing anything about spending.

Secret Banking Cabal Conspiracy Theory Going Mainstream / Politics / US Politics

Paul Joseph Watson writes: Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn another measure of how what the establishment labels “conspiracy theory” is quickly becoming mainstream, Bloomberg News carries a story today acknowledging that those derided as “crazy” for warning that the world is run by a secret banking cabal have largely been proven right in light of the AIG cover-up.

Obama’s Junk Economics, Democrats Relinquish the Populist Option to the Republicans / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a dress rehearsal for this November’s mid-term election, Democrats and Republicans vied last week for who could denounce the banks and blame the other party the most for the giveaways to Wall Street that have swollen the public debt since September 2008, pushing the federal budget into deficit and the economy into a slump.

Is The War In Afghanistan About Terror, Or Heroin? / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo one knows how much the “War on Terror” cost so far, but if you add up the actual direct expenditure plus the economic damage, plus the cost of all the extra security, it wouldn’t surprise me if it came to more than the credit crunch cost. Of course it didn’t happen all in one go, but I just wonder whether the current malaise in USA might have something to do with that cost.

Obama Threatens to Push Economy Over the Edge, the Precarious State of Our Union / Politics / US Politics

In this week's much anticipated State of the Union address, President Obama again demonstrated his poor understanding of the fundamental problems that confront our nation. By following the advice of the same people who helped guide our economy to the precipice of total collapse, Obama now threatens to push it over the edge.

More Government in the Financial Sector to Save Capitalism / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am a Capitalist Pig, and proud of it, thus you would not expect me to support government interference and more strenuous regulation of financial institutions – after all, capitalism (free markets) and tight regulation don't mix well. Well, at the risk of been kicked out of the Capitalistic Pig Party, I am in support of tighter regulation of too-big-to-fail (TBTF) institutions – the likes of Citigroup, JPMorgan, Bank America, and (God forbid; after all, they are doing “God’s work” – their CEO’s words, not mine) Goldman Sachs.

Banks Under Attack From Washington, The Impact on You / Politics / Market Regulation

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese days, the financial industry’s locus of power can’t be found in London. It’s not in New York City. Frankfurt? Tokyo? Davos, Switzerland? Nope, nope, and nope.

The real decisions that impact the capital markets are being made in Washington. And they’re sometimes being made by politicians who don’t really have a clue about how the industry works, or what unintended consequences their actions may have. If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.

Save the Middle Class Whilst Fixing the Banks For Good / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Michael_Pento

While I’m disgusted with the level of banker’s bonuses and with the obscene leverage practices financial institutions undertook, I do not think the answer to how we clean up them up now is to pile on yet more regulation. To be sure, banks that helped bring down the world economy and then subsequently got bailed out by the taxpayers should not be making billions of dollars in bonuses, especially while the middle class is suffering so greatly. And if we’re going to keep the FDIC in effect, a certain amount of regulation is required to protect taxpayer-backed deposits. But the real remedy does not rest with government, as it was their consistent meddling with markets that engendered the crisis to begin with.

Paul Volcker Financial Sector Reform Plan Sparks Split Between JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Volcker is back and things are about to change in Washington. A split has occurred between the paper forces of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase. Mr. Volcker represents Morgan interests. The Morgan side is tired of Goldman’s greed and arrogance. Volcker cannot be called old school or anachronistic. He represents sanity in an insane financial world even though he is an integral and powerful part of the elitist structure. He represents a change in gears and approach.

Why the Volcker Banking Crisis Plan Doesn’t Go Far Enough / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: I don't often agree with the Obama administration. So I have to say that I was surprised when I heard it had a plan to reduce the risk of another banking crisis. It wants to prohibit banks that are protected by deposit insurance from engaging in risky, proprietary trading, and it wants to break up some of the very largest banks.
