The Free Market as Regulator / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Since the bailouts last fall, lawmakers have been behaving as quasi-owners of the bailed-out banks and businesses, leading to calls for increased regulation of executive compensation and other wasteful expenditures.

Health Care Reform or Welfare Program, Who Pays the Bill? / Politics / US Politics

By: Steve_Selengut

The White House has released another of its health care reform clarification emails--- there will be more. It seems strange to me that the focus is on insurance coverage rather than on the spiraling costs of health care itself.

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Walberg writes: Georgia is to Russia as Colombia is to Venezuela, and Kaidanow spells trouble

War clouds refuse to disperse a year after Georgia waged war against Russia. On the anniversary of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's ill-fated invasion of South Ossetia 8 August, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev warned: "Georgia does not stop threatening to restore its 'territorial integrity' by force. Armed forces are concentrated at the borders near Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and provocations are committed," including renewed Georgian shelling of the South Ossetian capital Tskhinvali.

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in the early 1990's, I was told about a German economist with an American name: Paul C. Martin. He had written a book titled Paymaster Germany. Its thesis: Germany cannot send home its Turkish and other immigrants. They would break the German economy by pulling their money out of the country. Anyway, that's what my German contacts told me about the book. It has never been translated

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLesley Docksey writes: So far, the cost to the British taxpayer of our current ‘Great Game’ in Afghanistan is £12 billion(1).  If only our eight years there had cost nothing but money.  Leaving aside the horrendous cost to the Afghan people and their land, Britain’s forces have suffered loss, not least, because of the muddle, ignorance and incompetence of those who sent them to war, a loss of face.

Conservative Government to Privatise the NHS and Save the Economy from Bankruptcy / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe heated healthcare debate across the atlantic last week that targeted the NHS as a bureaucratic nightmare when it comes to actual delivery of prompt and efficient healthcare has started to reveal cracks in the Tory party public position on the NHS as Tory MEP's and MP's are rebuked by David Cameron for breaking with Tory front bench policy of continuing expansion of funding for the NHS regardless of the state of the country's finances so as to maximise votes amongst the 1-2 million voters that are either directly or indirectly employed by the NHS.

Less Government or Lower Wages? You Decide / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Peter_Schiff

The nationwide revelry surrounding our apparent economic recovery was disrupted this week by the release of lower-than-expected retail sales data. However, rather than sending a chill up the spines of those hoping for a quick end to the downturn, the numbers should be welcomed. Though this may come as a surprise to most observers, lower retail sales are precisely what our economy needs.

America Attacked During Obama Health Care Debate by British NHS Army / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe onslaught of Brit's running to the defence of the NHS against US attacks during the Obama healthcare reform debate must leave american's wondering what the hells going on, perhaps the NHS is far better than they were led to believe?. However what is missing from the equation is the fact that over 1 million people in Britain ride the NHS gravy train and hence have a vested interest in the continuance of this sacred cow funding black hole that continues to exert a sizeable political force that political parties have little choice but to pander towards to ensure electoral success.

The Forging of a New World Order Under a One World Government / Politics / New World Order

By: Global_Research

Aricle continued from here

The Global Economic Crisis in Context

The current global economic crisis has its roots not in the Bush administration, which is linear and diluted thinking at best, but in the systematic nature of the global capitalist system. Crisis is not separate from capital; crisis is capitalist expansion. In addressing the foundations of the economic crisis, neo-Marxist theory can help explain much of the actions and functions that led to the crisis.
