Change in The Old Order Impact on Financial Markets and Gold / Politics / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The old order changeth, yielding place to new,
And God fulfills himself in many ways,
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
  Alfred Lord Tennyson, “The Death  Of Arthur.”

“The Death of Arthur” takes place in the 6th century A.D., but Tennyson wrote it in the late 19th century, and the idea he expresses is a 19th century idea.  It is the theme for this first article of 2010 because evidence is coming in that, in the US today, the old order is changing.  If this proves correct for the US, then similar implications may apply for the remainder of the world.

Financial Reforms Are Being Watered Down As Bank Bailouts Are Up / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York, January 4th: It’s a new week, a new year, and some, erroneously believe a new decade. What’s not new is the stranglehold the banks have on our economy quietly stashing more billions for more bonuses while still restricting the flow of credit. Bad loans have been supplanted by no loans.

The Future of the United States, Systemic Fraud, Corruption and Financial Instability / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCraig Harris writes: As we close out 2009 and look forward into 2010 and beyond, this has been a year of near financial catastrophe and monumental change, none of which benefited America or ordinary Americans. Late in 2008 and throughout 2009, events have happened in the US which would have been labeled unfathomable just a few short years ago, and yet already these monumental changes are expected to be filed into the memory hole and Americans are expected to believe nothing has changed.

U.S. Citizens Healthcare Reform Lucky Escape from Making Britain's NHS Mistake / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe proposed healthcare bill appears to ensure that Americans have managed to retain their free market based health care system that will now be subsidised by the Federal Government. Whilst a far from perfect system of health care, however what has been prevented is the U.S. making the same mistake of creating their own version of the NHS, where 70p of every extra £1 spent on it disappears down the NHS spending black hole that now seriously risks bankrupting Britain.

How to Protest Against the Big Bailed Out Bankster Run Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Huffington Post has come up with a nice little protest movement. Let's pull our money out of the bailed-out banks and put it in local banks that lend to locals. Who are the locals? People just like us.

This makes sense economically. If you ever want a loan, get it from your own banker. If it's a local bank, you will be treated well.

Social Unrest and Global States of Combustibility 2010 / Politics / Social Issues

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Economist says that 2010 could be a year the sparks unrest in the Global Tinderbox: “IF THE world appears to have escaped relatively unscathed by social unrest in 2009, despite suffering the worst recession since the 1930s, it might just prove the lull before the storm. Despite a tentative global recovery, for many people around the world economic and social conditions will continue to deteriorate in 2010. An estimated 60m people worldwide will lose their jobs. Poverty rates will continue to rise, with 200m people at risk of joining the ranks of those living on less than $2 a day. But poverty alone does not spark unrest—exaggerated income inequalities, poor governance, lack of social provision and ethnic tensions are all elements of the brew that foments unrest.“

The Peak Oil Lie, Petroleum is Plentiful / Politics / Crude Oil

By: George_Giles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the first decade of the twenty-first century draws to a close it is worth reviewing topics that may impact every man, woman and child. The disastrous Bush Administration pulled the legs out from under the baby boomers retirement with his inability to veto any spending bill. He has even crippled the future of the unborn. Lil’ Bush launched a global war on an adjective (terrorism) without any strategic objective. Previous wars had nouns as the subject. Social spending increased as well, not to mention the subversion of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Obama HAS taken up right where Lil’ Bush left off.

Financial Reform Just Camouflage for Wall Street’s Latest Power Play / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Anti-Wall Street sentiment makes for a good cover, but behind the scenes and rhetoric, legislators are working with the country's largest financial firms to fashion a new system that concentrates even more risk and reward at fewer banks.

And what's more, the underlying socialization of the system will guarantee the success of excess with the full faith and credit of taxpayers.

U.S. Thinking the Art of Military Planning / Politics / US Politics

By: OilPrice_Com

It is often assumed that what preoccupies military planners is their attempts to define the shape of future warfare so that they can adequately prepare equipment and doctrine ideal to meet the threat. Evidence, however, shows that what most occupies their attention is how to adapt existing force structures and systems to react to emerging conditions.

Understanding the Global Warming Hoax / Politics / Climate Change

By: James_P_Hogan

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScience is concerned with objective reality: the way things are, that lie beyond the power of human desires or action to change. The purpose is to discover what's true, which means accepting that the answers will remain what they are regardless of how passionately we might wish them to be otherwise or how many others we might persuade to share our convictions. Preconceptions are discarded as far as is humanly possible. Facts alone determine what is believed, and whether the consequences are considered socially, politically, ethically, or otherwise good or bad falls where it may. Science of itself has no judgment to pass on such aspects.

U.S. Democrats Subverting Iranian Peoples Revolution / Politics / Iran

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Sunday in Iran, mass protests were drowned in blood by government authorities; at least ten reportedly have been killed with hundreds injured.  The events have been given ample coverage in the U.S. media, with the intention of further demonizing Iran’s repressive government. Absent in the American media are the deeper implications of the protests, which, to anyone paying close attention, constitute a powerful revolutionary movement.

Democracy the Supreme Object of Adoration as a Global Religion / Politics / Social Issues

By: Robert_Higgs

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo institution of modern life commands as much veneration as democracy. It comes closer than anything else to being the supreme object of adoration in a global religion. Anyone who denies its righteousness and desirability soon finds himself a pariah. One may get away with denouncing motherhood and apple pie, but not with speaking ill of democracy, which is now the principal icon of political and social life throughout the world. Many people are atheists, but few are antidemocrats.

A Year on From Financial System Collapse, Something is Not Quite Right / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBILL MOYERS: Welcome to the Journal.

Something's not right here. One year after the great collapse of our financial system, Wall Street is back on top while our politicians dither. As for health care reform, you're about to be forced to buy insurance from companies whose stock is soaring, and that's just dandy with the White House.

Weak Russian Military Suggestive of Nuclear First Strike Doctrine / Politics / New Cold War

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn October 2009, Nicolai Patrushev, Russia’s Security Council Secretary, announced that the new military doctrine was on its way. The old one was dated back in 2000 and written even earlier, under Yeltsin. Patrushev named the announcement of Russia’s right for a preventive nuclear strike the key provision of the new doctrine. He kept his word, and this provision does exist in the text of the doctrine approved by the Security Council. The President of Russia is expected to sign the document by the end of the year. Experts believe that the doctrine is fair and properly reflects the current state of affairs.
