From American Citizen to Serf in 200 Years / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica is a strange place. Liberals get emotionally distraught that the Founding Fathers stuck Second Amendment rights in the Constitution. For American citizens to possess firearms is considered to be dangerous. Yet it is quite alright for Americans to possess deadly green mambas.

Bernanke’s Victory Lap / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite vocal criticism of the Federal Reserve’s stewardship of the economy over the past decade, President Obama’s renomination of Ben Bernanke to a second term as Fed Chairman nevertheless served to reassure and boost financial markets. While it is true that markets tend to crave predictability from government, rewarding the continuation of horrible Bush-era policies is perhaps pushing the boundaries of nostalgia. More interestingly, President Obama, who campaigned for ‘change,’ has clearly come down once again on the side of continuity.

The Geopolitical Western View of Russia / Politics / Russia

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA months-long White House review of a pair of U.S. ballistic missile defense (BMD) installations slated for Poland and the Czech Republic is nearing completion. The review is expected to present a number of options ranging from pushing forward with the installations as planned to canceling them outright. The Obama administration has yet to decide what course to follow. Rumors are running wild in Poland and the Czech Republic that the United States has reconsidered its plan to place ballistic defense systems in their countries. The rumors stem from a top U.S. BMD lobbying group that said this past week that the U.S. plan was all but dead.

Audit the Fed Gaining Momentum in Congress / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

It has been an interesting week indeed for the Federal Reserve. Early this week, it was announced that President Obama intends to reappoint Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to a second term in January, signaling a vote of confidence in him. Bernanke seems to be popular with the administration and with Wall Street, and with good reason. His lending policies have left big banks flush with newly created cash that covers up old mistakes and allows for new ones.

Credit Crisis Bank Bailouts, The Economics of Failure / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_J_Kosares

The government has handed over hundreds of billions of dollars in bailout aid intended to ensure the survival of corporations deemed "too big (i.e., too important) to fail," even though the present vulnerabilities and failings of these same entities have been largely brought upon themselves by their own missteps and strategic imprudence.

America's Deepening Inferiority Complex Begins to Bite Russia / Politics / Russia

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Bridge writes: As the US beats a path through a social, political and economic forest of epic proportions, is it mere coincidence that news stories on Russia are becoming more hostile than ever?

Strangely, the end of the Cold War did not significantly alter the Western media’s perceptions of Russia. In fact, the collapse of communism seems to have forced the American media establishment to dish out the dirt on Russia with more gusto than ever before.

My Portrait/Caricature of the Late Senator Edward Kennedy / Politics / US Politics

By: Kevin_Geary

30 years ago, in 1979, I was asked by the Economist magazine to do a caricature-portrait of Ted Kennedy for their cover, because he was then seen as a serious challenger to President Jimmy Carter. The caricature-portrait wasn't used by the Economist in the end, because they decided that another story was more important for the cover at the time (such is the fate of artists who are commissioned by magazines!)

News Corporation's Murdoch Blames BBC For Driving Independent Journalism Out of Business / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Nadeem_Walayat

James Murdoch of the media giant News Corporation lashed out at the licence fee funded BBC for driving out independent media that cannot compete against the BBC's free services, especially the online services that cost the BBC £186 million per annum to deliver but are paid for via the licence fee, whereas mainstream news organisations operate their free online services at a huge loss and are increasingly being forced to charge for online access as the print media continues to shrink as more people turn to the internet for news and information.

Bernanke's REAL Legacy Helping Goldman Sachs Fleece Us All / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Graham_Summers

I’ve watched with first amusement, then disgust, and ultimately outrage as various pundits proclaimed Bernanke’s efforts “saved the financial system” or helped the US “weather the storm.” Bernanke did NO such thing. You could train a chimpanzee to hit the “print money” button at the Fed every-time the Fed phone rings with a Wall Street number and get the same results. To date, Bernanke has spent or put the taxpayer on the hook for some $24 TRILLION in bailouts, lending windows, and off balance sheet arrangements.

The Great Depression Rhyming, Bloomberg and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

On November 7, 2008, Bloomberg LP sued the Federal Reserve Board under terms of the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the names of borrowers of funds from the Federal Reserve as well as lists of the collateral posted by the borrowers. On August 25, 2009, a U.S. District judge ruled in favor of Bloomberg, ordering the Federal Reserve Board to turn over to Bloomberg the requested information within five days.

Lord Turner Fights to Save the Incompetent FSA Banking System Regulator / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLord Turner, the ex-banker head of the FSA banking system regulator that repeatedly failed to regulate the UK banking sector over the boom and bust years that resulted in a near catastrophic collapse of the UK banking system requiring the tax payer to underwrite the whole banking system to the tune of £1.5 trillion and counting, today stepped forward with strong words criticising the financial sector as well as calling on for a new tax on transactions to prevent bonus abuse that allowed bank executives and boards to turn the institutions they worked for into hollow shells, after having banked billions in bonuses on fictitious mark to market profits.

Global Fresh Water Crisis, Peak Water / Politics / Water Sector

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It should be obvious from simple arithmetic that population growth is on a direct collision course with increasingly scarce resources.”
Jeremy Grantham

The notion of peak water probably sounds crazy to most people. The earth is 70% covered by water. The water cycle replenishes water on a continuous basis. The global warming enthusiasts tell us that glaciers are melting and oceans are rising. This should make water more plentiful.
