Obama's State of the Union Address 2010 Rhetoric, Economic Euphemisms and Internal Contradictions / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe State of the Union address is in danger of purveying the usual euphemisms. I expect Mr. Obama to brag that he has overseen a recovery. But can there be any such thing as a jobless recovery? What has recovered are stock market averages and Wall Street bonuses, not disposable personal income or discretionary spending after paying debt service.

How Much More “Debt Recovery” can the U.S. Economy Take? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s make or break time for Democrats since the January 19 defeat in Massachusetts. At stake is Mr. Obama’s credibility as an agent for change. Exit polls show that voters see his main change to be favoritism to Wall Street, to a degree that the “old Democrats” would not have let a Republican administration get away with. Rivalry over just what party is more Wall Street friendly prompted Jay Leno to joke that Mr. Obama has done the impossible: resurrected the seemingly dying Republican Party and given it the coveted label of the “Party of Change” running against Wall Street.

U.S. Supreme Court Hands Nation Over to Corporations / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Americans have long had a sneaking suspicion that there was a “hidden hand” directing our government in Washington and the states, and they were right. The “hidden hand” was actually the corporations, unions, and other special interests that contribute literally $billions to our politicians in order to influence legislation that will favor them. This has happened even with the limits that have been placed on these groups that prevented them from directly contributing to campaigns.

Legalize Competing Currencies / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Much has been made recently about the supposed economic recovery. A few blips in a few statistics and many believe our troubles are all over. Of course, they have to redefine recovery as "jobless" to account for the lack of improvement on Main Street. But the banks have money, Wall Street is chugging along, and the administration would like to get on with other agendae.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat’s quite the title, no? But without making it even longer, because it covers a vast and complicated subject, it encapsulates what I think will be the most important event that could become apparent to the masses this coming year, which means process would accelerate to a more recognizable end. Let me explain what I mean now that all this confusing stuff is up in the air and in need of some grounding; like our currencies. In the first place one needs to understand the difference between currency and money.

How Wall St Destroyed Private Medicine / Politics / Healthcare Sector

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt my annual check-up, my doctor handed me a sheet explaining the reasons for office fee increases for Medicare Patients. It is worth reporting at length.

Medicare fixes the prices for Medicare patients’ health care. All office charges for Medicare, including office visit charges, have been set by the Federal government since 1984. In real terms (adjusted for inflation), these fixed prices are less today than they were three decades ago.

Darnall Community Health GP Surgery Could Close On NHS Spending Cuts / Politics / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA number of Sheffield GP surgeries including Darnall Community Health could face the axe on anticipated deep NHS spending cuts following the next general election. 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 UK 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 at 14% of GDP is not sustainable, which 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.

America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: Stewart_Dougherty

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFOREWORD: At certain times, focusing on the big picture is important not just for investment success, but for personal welfare, and even survival. We believe such times are here. It is estimated that 98% of Americans have never held a gold coin in their hands. Yet 100% of Americans regularly handle Federal Reserve Notes. From a contrarian standpoint, the financial message from those two statistics is clear. Even so, gold is much more than money or an investment medium; it stands for liberty and throughout history has facilitated escape and ensured freedom.
