States Should Cut Wall Street Out! Own Your Own Bank / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePouring money into the private banking system has only fixed the economy for bankers and the wealthy; it has not done much to address either the fundamental problem of unemployment or the debt trap so many Americans find themselves in.

President Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan has so far failed to halt the growth of unemployment: 2.7 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus plan began. California has lost 336,400 jobs. Arizona has lost 77,300. Michigan has lost 137,300. A total of 49 states and the District of Columbia have all reported net job losses.

Obama and the U.S. Strategy of Buying Time / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaking sense of U.S. President Barack Obama's strategy at this moment is difficult. Not only is it a work in progress, but the pending decisions he has to make -- on Iran, Afghanistan and Russia -- tend to obscure underlying strategy. It is easy to confuse inaction with a lack of strategy. Of course, there may well be a lack of strategic thinking, but that does not mean there is a lack of strategy.

Government Statistics and Lies / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

There has been a lot of talk in Washington recently about senior citizens, mostly about how various healthcare reform models would help or hurt them. But there is another critical issue that has quietly devastated seniors financially over the last few decades. It concerns how the cost of living is calculated. How does the administration justify not giving a cost of living increase to Social Security recipients this year? According to the official Consumer Price Index calculation, life has gotten cheaper for the first time in decades. If the government can show statistically that the cost of living has gone down, not up, then they can make the case for not giving a cost of living increase to social security recipients. But does this match reality? Using older calculations of CPI, the cost of living has actually increased - by roughly 5%.

The Ayn Rand Cult / Politics / Social Issues

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the America of the 1970s we are all too familiar with the religious cult, which has been proliferating in the last decade. Characteristic of the cult (from Hare Krishna to the "Moonies" to EST to Scientology to the Manson Family) is the dominance of the guru, or Maximum Leader, who is also the creator and ultimate interpreter of a given creed to which the acolyte must be unswervingly loyal. The major if not the only qualification for membership and advancement in the cult is absolute loyalty to and adoration of the guru, and absolute and unquestioning obedience to his commands.

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Oct. 25, militants in Iraq conducted a coordinated attack in which they detonated large vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs) at the federal Ministry of Justice building and the Baghdad Provincial Council building nearly simultaneously. The two ministries are located in central Baghdad near the Green Zone and are just over a quarter of a mile apart.

Health Care Solution Analysis / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan K. Solan writes: America’s politicians are proposing “Cures“ for health care at a rapid pace.  Each “Cure” is immediately challenged by people and organizations from both ends of the political spectrum.  One side says the cure is too expensive, the other side says the cure does not go far enough.  All sides say we need more insurance.

Most Americans listen to the arguments and they intuitively know what they don’t like in the proposals, but they hear little in the way of proposals that they intuitively do like.  They don’t like hearing higher taxes, forced enrollment in insurance, Government options, and fines for not having insurance.  Americans know that the American way is freedom, not government force.  Why do the politicians repeatedly turn to the use of force to fix problems?

The Fear-Mongering Pandemic! / Politics / Global Pandemic

By: Gary_D_Barnett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll the talk of pandemics that can only be solved by government intervention has me in a rage. I am literally sick of the fear-mongering rhetoric spewed by everyone from government officials to the mainstream media, advocacy groups, pharmaceutical companies, and the World Health Organization about false threats. The real threat to us all lies in our acceptance of fear, and in our acceptance of a false prophet as savior. What is at stake here is not a threat from disease or other disasters, but a threat to what’s left of our precious liberty due to the government’s fear-mongering about false "pandemics."

Russia, Iran and the Biden Speech / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. Vice President Joe Biden toured several countries in Central Europe last week, including the Czech Republic and Poland. The trip comes just a few weeks after the United States reversed course and decided not to construct a ballistic missile defense (BMD) system in those two countries. While the system would have had little effect on the national security of either Poland or the Czech Republic, it was taken as a symbol of U.S. commitment to these two countries and to former Soviet satellites generally. The BMD cancellation accordingly caused intense concern in both countries and the rest of the region.

Audit the Fed, Anything Less Than Full Disclosure is Unacceptable / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week a new bill was introduced in the Senate to audit the Federal Reserve. Some backers of my bill HR1207 and the existing Senate companion bill S.604 were a little miffed at this, but depending on how you think about it, this new legislation poses no great threat to our efforts.

American Healthcare Fascialism / Politics / US Politics

By: Thomas_J_DiLorenzo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome time ago I invented the phrase "fascialism" to describe the American system of political economy. Fascialism means an economy is part fascist, part socialist. Economic fascism has nothing to do with dictatorship, militarism, or bizarre racial theories. Fascism is a brand of socialism that was the economic system of Germany and Italy in the early 20th century. It was characterized by private enterprise, but private enterprise that was comprehensively regulated and regimented by the state, ostensibly "in the public interest" (as arbitrarily defined by the state).

Indian Ocean Great Power Confrontation, Geo-Politics of the Sri Lankan Civil War / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Mahdi_D_Nazemroaya

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe support and positions of various foreign governments in regards to the diabolic fighting between the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan military, which cost the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, says a great deal about the geo-strategic interests of these foreign governments. The position of the governments of India and a group of states that can collectively be called the Periphery, such as the U.S. and Australia, were in support of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam (LTTE) or Tamil Tigers, either overtly or covertly. Many of these governments also provided this support tacitly, so as not to close any future opportunity of co-opting Sri Lanka after the fighting was over.
