The Economy / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Liechty writes: To date I have twice been robbed of lots of money (or what seemed like lots of money). The first theft occurred overseas when I was at a dinner party. Someone must have seen me at the bank withdrawing cash, and followed me home. Later that night the same someone crawled through an unlocked window and headed straight for the bank envelope. The moral was plain (not that I mastered it) – lock your house and don't be an ass. The latest theft occurred in my native country. I learned about it when a piece of paper arrived suggesting that my "investments" were melting like cotton candy in a squall.

Free Markets, It’s Time to Wake up America / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Pollaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFree markets don't work, says Tim Geithner and Ben Bernanke. Indeed nearly all our government leaders say so; the G-20 too. The economy is a mess, but no worries because we got your back. We'll spend and print our way out of this economic crisis, then slap a whole heap of regulation on the bad guys to make sure they never hurt us again.

G20 Summit, What Really Happened in London / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week's gathering in London of the leaders of the 20 foremost economic countries in the world had been billed as the most important global financial meeting in more than 60 years. The stage had been set for hotly contested economic policies to be hashed out with the intensity of a Cold War arms negotiation. However, for most observers, the results of the G-20 failed to live up to the billing. Other than a masterful display of haute couture by the new American first lady, there are few results that anyone can really call significant.

Global Financial Collapse - Video / Politics / Financial Crash

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn Argentine opinion on the Global Financial Crisis, describing the whole Global Financial System as one vast Ponzi Scheme. Like a pyramid, it has four sides and is a predictable model. The four sides are: (1) Artificially control the supply of public State-issued Currency, (2) Artificially impose Banking Money as the primary source of funding in the economy, (3) Promote doing everything by Debt and (4) Erect complex channels that allow privatizing profits when the Model is in expansion mode and socialize losses when the model goes into contraction mode.

Towards New Global Currency, New Financial World Order - Part2 / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Global_Research

... Continued from Part 1 Here.

An Emerging Global Government

A recent article in the Financial Post stated that, “The danger in the present course is that if the world moves to a “super sovereign” reserve currency engineered by experts, such as the “UN Commission of Experts” led by Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz, we would give up the possibility of a spontaneous money order and financial harmony for a centrally planned order and the politicization of money. Such a regime change would endanger not only the future value of money but, more importantly, our freedom and prosperity.”[57]

Towards New Global Currency, New Financial World Order / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing the 2009 G20 summit, plans were announced for implementing the creation of a new global currency to replace the US dollar's role as the world reserve currency. Point 19 of the communiqué released by the G20 at the end of the Summit stated, “We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity.” SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights, are “a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.” As the Telegraph reported, “the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's power to create money and begin global "quantitative easing". In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it.”[1]

Bernanke's Financial Rescue Plan: America's Glide-path to Destitution / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFed chief Ben Bernanke has embarked on the most radical and ruinous financial rescue plan in history. According to Bloomberg News, the Fed has already lent or committed $12.8 trillion trying to stabilize the financial system after the the bursting of Wall Street's speculative mega-bubble. Now Bernanke wants to dig an even bigger hole, by creating programs that will provide up to $2 trillion of credit to financial institutions that purchase toxic assets from banks or securities backed by consumer loans. The Fed's generous terms are expected to generate a flurry of speculation which will help strengthen the banking system while leaving the taxpayer to bear the losses. It is impossible to know what the long-term effects of Bernanke's excessive spending will be, but his plan has the potential to trigger hyperinflation or spark a run on the dollar.

Financial Crisis Blaming the Culture of Greed? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal recently suggested that a ‘culture of greed' may be to blame for today's crisis.  Billionaire investor Stephen Jarislowsky has said that he thinks ‘extreme' greed was to blame. And nestled within the mob of protestors ahead of last week's G20 meeting was a little girl, no more than 5 or 6-years of age, holding a sign saying ‘You Greedy BosTards'. Let us simply say, while acknowledging the views of the Wall Street Journal and Mr. Jarislowsky, that the protesting little girl may have been misled.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we visit some very thoughtful analysis by an old friend of Outside the Box, Dr. John Hussman of the Hussman Funds ( http://www.hussmanfunds.com/index.html ). Is the new PPIP program and related activities likely to help or hurt the situation? Will this help keep banks for bankruptcy or will it push the FDIC into insolvency requiring massive tax payer cash. This week's Outside the Box is brief, but poignant.

U.S. Budget Expands Size of Government as Economy Contracts / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week the House passed another budget that increases federal power, raises taxes, and increases the national debt. I voted against it, and was pleased to see that not a single Republican representative voted for it. Legislators often see bipartisanship as constructive, but I disagree especially where the destruction of our economy or our liberty is concerned. There has been too much bipartisan consensus on expanding government far beyond the bounds of the Constitution which we all swore to defend and uphold. Because of this, I have never been able to vote for a budget. However, it was good to see Republicans come together on this important vote, even if their alternative budget was almost as bad.

Obama's Auto Industry Bailout as an Implementation of Fascism / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVin Suprynowicz writes: The typical American automobile in the early 1920s was easy to describe. It was boxy and black, offered a manual transmission only, and sported a straight-up four-cylinder engine. Creature comforts were few. On the bright side, if your car tipped over on a sharp turn – as the top-heavy contraptions were wont to do – two strong men could usually set the thing upright, little the worse for wear.

They believe that the bonus money was stolen from the public and must be retrieved by any means possible. So why not bypass the niceties and just send in some well-armed “enforcers” to confiscate the bonus recipients’ cars and houses and bank accounts?

The Crisis of Creativity in America / Politics / Social Issues

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCage Innoye writes: There is a great crisis of creativity in our age. Critical problems are mounting up and very little is being done. It is because we do not understand, teach or promote creativity that we are in the great mess of today. We live in world of advancing complexity and evolving situations and contradictions; there is no way a species can manage all this without being creative. The more developed a culture and society, the more developed must be its creativity. But look at our nation, our creativity is either inadequate or simply non-existent.

America's Financial Oligarchy Is Still in Control  / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The crash has laid bare many unpleasant truths about the United States . One of the most alarming is that the finance industry has effectively captured our government”, says Simon Johnson, a chief economist with the International Monetary Fund in 2007 and 2008. In an article entitled “The Quiet Coup” in the May, 2009 issue of the Atlantic magazine he (with James Kwak) goes on to say that “if the IMF's staff could speak freely about the U.S., it would tell us what it tells all countries in this situation: recovery will fail unless we break the financial oligarchy that is blocking essential reform and if we are to prevent a true depression, we're running out of time”.
