Obama's Foreign Policy: The End of the Beginning / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs August draws to a close, so does the first phase of the Obama presidency. The first months of any U.S. presidency are spent filling key positions and learning the levers of foreign and national security policy. There are also the first rounds of visits with foreign leaders and the first tentative forays into foreign policy. The first summer sees the leaders of the Northern Hemisphere take their annual vacations, and barring a crisis or war, little happens in the foreign policy arena. Then September comes and the world gets back in motion, and the first phase of the president’s foreign policy ends. The president is no longer thinking about what sort of foreign policy he will have; he now has a foreign policy that he is carrying out.

So-called Populist Revolt Against the Obama Health Care Proposals Stinks / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_C_Cook

Is anyone more than a little curious about where the so-called “populist revolt” against the Obama administration’s health care proposals is coming from and who is paying for it? You know, the revolt where people scream and disrupt town hall meetings, brandish guns outside in the street, and label a public option that would help some of the 47 million without health insurance get treatment as “socialist”?

Why the Federal Reserve Bank Must Die / Politics / Central Banks

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value ---- zero.” – Voltaire

“The Federal Reserve in collaboration with the giant banks has created the greatest financial crisis the world has ever seen. The foolish notion that unlimited amounts of money and credit created out of thin air can provide sustainable economic growth has delivered this crisis to us. Instead of economic growth and stable prices, (The Fed) has given us a system of government and finance that now threatens the world financial and political institutions. Pursuing the same policy of excessive spending, debt expansion and monetary inflation can only compound the problems that prevent the required corrections. Doubling the money supply didn’t work, quadrupling it won’t work either.  Buying up the bad debt of privileged institutions and dumping worthless assets on the American people is morally wrong and economically futile. Representative from Texas Ron Paul questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke

Who Will Inherit Your Money When You Die? / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North writes: "Tell me what country I will die in. I will never go there."

Men do not like to think about their inheritance. That's because of the word "die." This is why they delay writing a will. A will is like a road map to the border of the final country. "I will never go there."

SEC On Track To Adopt IVS: By-passing FASB, BIS, Congress And The Treasury? / Politics / Market Regulation

Tyler Durden can always be counted on to be first off the block with a juicy bit of news, so it was no surprise that he broke the story about SEC's recent effort to re-start the job that they apparently abandoned some-time in mid 2000, namely protecting investors who put their money into entities they regulate from fraud (http://seekingalpha.com/article/157053-sec-to-demand-loan-loss-clarity-in-md-a-disclosure).

American Spirit Emerging Against Socialist Obama Government Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Browne

Despite growing concerns about the growth in Federal spending, voiced this week by none other than Warren Buffett, Washington seems determined to keep its foot on the money pumping accelerator for as long as it can. But even though Washington continues to ignore the realities, alarm bells are beginning to ring at town halls across the country.

How The Shadow Banks Hijacked The Fed, The Law of ONE / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe way it's supposed to work is that the way the Fed "controls" the US economy is mainly by adjusting short-term interest rates; lower rates and more money sloshes around the system and GDP goes up, but that can be inflationary, so the Fed keeps a wary eye on that, and if the dangerous iceberg of inflation is "spotted" it raises rates.

Baby Bush, the Worst President in History? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey writes: I recognize that I’ve antagonized many subscribers over the years with "Bush Bashing." In January, just after OBAMA!’s election, I said I wouldn’t mention Bush again, his departure having made him irrelevant. I only feel bad that he and his minions will apparently get away scot-free with their crimes; better they had all been brought up before a tribunal and tried for crimes against humanity in general and the U.S. Constitution in particular. But that is objectively true of almost all presidents since at least Lincoln.

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. We have heard much about bonuses and executive pay packages that sound more like lottery winnings than an honest salary.

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.
