The Global Economic Crisis and the Need for World Bank Reform / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Shaman writes: The world has come to a line in the sand.  Over one and a half billion people live in abject poverty today.  Millions die each year of malnutrition or from treatable disease.  This condition has existed for decades and yet help from the rich nations of the world has been inadequate, inefficient and achingly slow.

Has Obama Become Bush II? / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBarack Obama's election seemed an anomaly, but clearly it was disgust with his predecessor that drove him from obscurity to the presidency.

Obama's "outside-inside" strategy inspired millions of new voters. He organised, rallied new voters, used social networks and invoked change orientated slogans with more symbolism than substance.

NHS Spending Cuts Mean Sheffield's Worst GP Surgeries Could Close / Politics / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The British economy is in the midst of a deep debt crisis that risks a collapse into a hyperinflationary bust. The root of the problem lies in the fact that the government spends £180 billion more on public spending than it earns, i.e. government revenues are £500 billion, and government expenditure is £680 billion (2009-10 est). The deficit of £180 billion is at 14% of GDP and is not sustainable that requires an urgent and near immediate cut in the deficit to below 6% of GDP to prevent igniting an out of control inflationary debt spiral.

U.S. - China Growing Military Tensions / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though the U.S. military budget is almost ten times that of China's (with a population more than four times as large) and Washington plans a record $708 billion defense budget for next year compared to Russia spending less than $40 billion last year for the same, China and Russia are portrayed as threats to the U.S. and its allies. China has no troops outside its borders; Russia has a small handful in its former territories in Abkhazia, Armenia, South Ossetia and Transdniester. The U.S. has hundreds of thousands of troops stationed in six continents.

U.S. Government is Too Big to Succeed / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission kicked off their first round of hearings on the causes of the economic meltdown on Wall Street. The commission is being compared to the the Pecora Commission launched in 1932 to investigate the causes of the Great Depression. The Pecora commission is beloved by those who believe the solution to every problem is more laws because it was used to justify a number of new laws, including Glass-Steagall.

Media and Political Hysteria Over Yemen Hides a Deeper Strategic Matrix of Long-Term Importance / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS and Western European political leaders have begun to focus on Yemen as a source of projected instability and as a haven for jihadist terrorism against the West.

This simplistic and overly narrow view has largely been a reaction to media reporting of the links of alleged (and unsuccessful) Nigerian-born terrorist bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, to a radical Yemeni group, and to intense ongoing fighting between insurgents and Yemeni and Saudi government forces on the Yemen-Saudi border.

Government and Central Bank Managing Money / Politics / Central Banks

By: Viresh_Amin

Thanks to the Federal Reserve and our government for their chase for a strong dollar policy, middle income workers are now forced to become money mangers. A strong dollar cannot come from government or the Feds, only from the private sector; although elected officials have unlimited power to destroy it. It used to be that you can work, get paid, then allocate your money to a bank and let it sit without worrying. But now, in addition to a career, we work harder preserving wealth than creating it. Since the inception of the Federal Reserve the dollar has lost in 97 years over 95% of its value. It is reasonably certain the next 95% won’t take as long, and is more likely to occur in our life time.

Sack The Financial Market Regulators / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ‘Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission’ began operations last week and heard testimony from four heads of the financial industry. Not surprisingly, the tone was resoundingly negative - Inquiry Chairman, Philip Angelides, attacked Goldman’s Lloyd Blankfein, Krugman called the bankers ‘clueless’, and Ritholtz posted a graphic depicting what was really on the minds of the sleazy bankers. Also not surprising was that no one made the case that what these bankers did was illegal and/or prosecutable.

Academic Economists Serving their Political Masters / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrederick Sheehan writes: On January 14, 2010, an academic economist took a rare stance. Tenured professors rarely lift the veil from numbers that governments invent. In "Don't Like the Numbers? Change 'Em," Michael J. Boskin, Ph.D., formerly, an economics professor at Harvard and Yale; formerly, chairman of the Counsel of Economic Advisers in the George H.W. Bush administration; currently, T. M. Friedman Professor of Economics at Stanford University; research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research; senior fellow at the Hoover Institution; and board member of the Exxon Mobil Corporation, Oracle Corporation and Vodafone PLC (among others), wielded his sword.

Wall Street’s Power Grab, The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Hearings / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou almost could hear the bankers heave a sigh of relief when Haiti’s earthquake knocked the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission hearings off the front pages and evening news broadcasts last week. At stake, after all, is Wall Street’s power grab seeking to centralize policy control firmly in its own hands by neutralizing the government’s regulatory agencies. The first day – Wednesday, January 15 – went innocuously enough. Four emperors of finance were called on to voice ceremonial platitudes and pro forma apologies without explaining what they might be apologizing for. Typical was the statement by Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd C. Blankfein: “Whatever we did, it didn’t work out well. We regret the consequence that people have lost money.”

The Free Market, Public Education System and Profit Incentives / Politics / US Politics

By: Viresh_Amin

Historically, it has long been a self-evident truth that the most efficient, productive, and fastest, way to produce goods and services to best serve the consumer desires is to allow a entity to have a profit incentive i.e., unhampered markets. Without such an incentive all three (efficiency, productivity, and speed) will deteriorate and will become submarginal i.e., public education, Amtrak, and the U.S. Postal Service to name just a few. In many cases without a profit incentive, the only incentive today is the bailout incentive i.e., Fannie and Freddie, etc.

Raining on the Governments Parade / Politics / US Politics

By: Viresh_Amin

The Lew Rockwell dot com and the Ludwig Von Mises institute have and continue to do a fabulous job at raining on the government’s parade and all the fallacies that are floating around in today’s world. They have time and time again become a place for minds to create great ideas, theories, articles, and books to show us just what this world has come to. Government has for far too long suppressed the best efforts of productive men and steals tax payer money to produce nothing productive for our end; all the while they tell us that they are working diligently for our best interest. One of these days that rain will turn into hail and a wrath the likes of hurricane Katrina will send a destructive backlash to all those “legalized” crooks and criminals living off the successful efforts of the productive minds.

Trivial or Fundamental? / Politics / US Politics

By: Viresh_Amin

One of America’s great men on Capitol Hill has repeatedly stated that the issues at hand are dealing with the trivial and not the fundamental. Ron Paul, has many times raised the question why do the terrorists in the Middle East hate us? He always gets the typical answer. The Administration, being the caring politicians they are, tell us that these terrorists hate our freedom, prosperity, and our democratic way of life, thus government concludes that they hate everything America stands for.
