The Declining Value of Work / Politics / Employment

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the great joys that men in free societies have long enjoyed is the ability to earn an honest wage for an honest day of work. In particular, the amazing capitalist engine that powered the U.S. economy for decade after decade greatly rewarded the incredible hard work and industriousness of the American people. America was known as the land of opportunity, and we built the largest middle class in the history of the world by working incredibly hard. But today, all of that is fundamentally changing. Thanks to rapid advances in technology, and thanks to the globalization of the work force, the labor of American workers is rapidly losing value. Automation, robotics and computers have made many jobs obsolete.

Where’s the Land of Opportunity These Days? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Doug_Horning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Doug Hornig, Casey Research : Recent decades have witnessed an amazing shrinkage of the American manufacturing sector, from #1 in the world to virtual non-existence. Companies, taking advantage of cheaper labor costs abroad, have either outsourced some portion of the workforce or relocated their entire operations offshore. Remember the “great sucking sound” that Ross Perot claimed he could hear?

A Citizen’s Indictment Of Co-Conspirators BP & BO / Politics / US Politics

By: T_Anthony_Michael

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePicture Ali Baba and the forty thieves (read OPEC et al) sitting around a sumptuous dinner table after a big heist at the local commodity exchange. British Petroleum (BP) says to Barack Obama (BO), “Please, just one more day to cap this gusher. Remember, the tanker sitting above this well can hold 1.4 million barrels of oil. At $85 a barrel were talking 119 million dollars every time we fill a tanker. Ahh, nothing like a real undersea gusher sittin’ atop a 3 billion barrel oil field. This is the big one, BO! The real megilla! I mean the CASH COW that never stops giving!” And so it was.

Germany About to Pull the Plug On Europe, This is Going to Hurt! / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe continue to hound on the situation in the European Union, the Euro, Greece and the rest of the PIIGS because of a similar situation that existed prior to the Great Depression. The Great Depression, some argue, resulted not from the bubble and subsequent stock market crash leading up to 1929, but rather, the defaults that spread across Europe (and parts of South America). These defaults had a direct effect on the European banking system, which subsequently led to collapses of the major banks.

The Financial Crisis As A Game Of 3 Card Monte / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou Always Think You Are Going To Win Until You lose - We live in a three card monte world. Follow the money as it moves from one shell to another. Now guess where it is.  Most of us don’t know the hand can be quicker than the eye. That’s why mostly everyone who has ever been suckered into playing ends up losing except those who are allowed to win to keep the hustle going.  We miss the tricks of the trade even as we swear we know where the winning card or money or ball is.

Feedback on Opting Out of Social Security / Politics / US Politics

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week’s column on the Amish opting out of Social Security generated a tremendous response. Within a few hours of publication, I had hundreds of comments on my blog.

I want you to know that I appreciated all the comments, even the ones that were critical. It’s a touchy, complicated subject. There are no easy answers. And that’s precisely why I continually try to initiate conversation and debate on this very important topic.

Governments and Central Bankers No Better than Common Identity Thieves / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The spotlight remains on the Greek sovereign debt crisis as the riots continue. The terms of the Greek bailout from the IMF and Eurozone countries remain contentious with citizens on all sides. Europeans hate having their governments throw public money away as much as Americans do. The Greeks are not happy about having their taxes raised while their pensions and salaries are cut.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true." [paraphrased Buddhist saying]

Rating Agencies Are Dead: Long Live The Rating Agencies. / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time rating agencies were independent research companies advising end-buyers and traders on the fundamental value of securities. They sold opinions of value, i.e. they did valuations – they gave an opinion on how likely it was that projected cash flows would materialise in the future; and once you got a fix on that, working out present value is just arithmetic.

Gordon Arnaut writes: Who is in charge of these United States?

If you guess that it’s the people with the money, then you are correct. Not the elected representatives of the people. Not the men and women in uniform, not the factory workers, or farmers, or teachers, or bus drivers and pilots. Just the guys and gals with the moneybags.

Market "Thumbs Down" on the EU Bailout / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Whitney

Barack Obama must have been very frightened, indeed. Otherwise he never would have inserted himself so forcefully into Greece's debt crisis. The truth is, there's much more at stake then people seem to realize. A Greek default would be a major blow to the banking system and the damage would not be limited just to Europe. It could easily spread to the United States and trigger another meltdown. That's why Obama spent most of his weekend on the phone, exhorting EU finance ministers to take swift action to put out the brushfire. Not surprisingly, the details were omitted in the US. media. Here's an excerpt from the UK Independent explaining what happened behind the scenes last weekend:

Democracy’s in Debt Death Spiral From Greece to the United States, Enemies of the State / Politics / US Politics

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Economic Elite continue their plunder, the people in Greece riot and the big banks score yet another big blow against the people of the United States.

Democracy throughout the world is under attack. Many people can make the argument that our democracy here in America is only an illusion, but even the illusion of democracy is crashing down. Tragedies are currently playing out across the world on an epic scale. Unprecedented economic and environmental catastrophes have become the norm. Billions of people, the overwhelming majority of humanity, have been sentenced to a slow death due to a concentration of wealth and resources within humanity’s economic top 0.5%. Ultimately, short-sighted greed has proven to be humanity’s most severe disease.

U.S. Big Bank Bailout Costs Trillions More than Stated / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGranted, the $700 billion dollar TARP bailout was a massive bait-and-switch. The government said it was doing it to soak up toxic assets, and then switched to saying it was needed to free up lending. It didn't do that either. Indeed, the Fed doesn't want the banks to lend.

Global Economic War, Will The Wall Street Banksters Ever Be Held Accountable? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are all still stuck in the “big Muddy.” No, not the wars of old or even the oil disaster.  The mud I am referring to is more like quicksand and it sucks anyone who wants to look at what happened in the financial crisis deeper and deeper into it.

Soon, you are buried in shifting sea of so-called “exotic financial instruments,” and tranches, derivatives, credit default swaps, naked short-selling, etc and so forth, ad fin item.  It’s murkier in there than in the oil-infested waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve releases transcripts of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings with a five-year lag (as required by law, the Fed would like to burn them). Transcripts for 2004 meetings were released on April 30, 2010. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 998 points on May 6, 2010. The 2004 transcripts help explain why the Dow could have disappeared last week.

Financial Reform, How We Can Save Our Economy / Politics / Market Regulation

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe next few weeks will culminate into a defining moment in American history and lay the course for our economic future. After two years of being asleep at the switch, Congress is finally stepping up and taking action on financial reform. The resulting bill will be a clear indication and definitive proof as to who is actually running our country. Will it reinforce the dominance of the Wall Street elite, or will it mark a rebirth of the rule of law and economic prosperity for millions of Americans who have seen their standard of living decline?
