Bail Out Your Self!, Time for a Tax and Mortgage Strike / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Ted Rall writes: The calamari salad was world-class. Still, my friend the CPA's face screwed up. "You know what still has me pissed off? The bailouts. All wasted on CEO bonuses. But nobody cares!"

I told him I thought people cared, but they didn't know what they could do about it.

Frauds R' Us: The Scams and Crimes of Wall Street / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDanny Schechter writes: So many of us know in detail about all the false warnings and exaggerated claims that were used to justify the war in Iraq. By now, six years later, and after many books, reports, news stories and films (hopefully including my two books and film, Weapons of Mass Deception), we see the pattern of lies and deception. We realize that a fraud was committed against the American people and see what its consequences have been for the people of this country, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Watching Barack Obama Morph Into Dick Cheney / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

America has lost her soul, and so has her president.

A despairing country elected a president who promised change. Americans arrived from every state to witness in bitter cold Obama’s swearing in ceremony. The mall was packed in a way that it has never been for any other president.

Banksters Remain Firmly in Charge of the "New" Wall Street / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street wants to regain your trust. Mutual fund managers, stockbrokers, Wall Street executives, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) want Americans to keep the faith that buying and holding stocks, for the long term, is a key to building personal wealth. This is a tough sell considering Americans have watched their 401(k)s become 201(k)s. Not to worry says the laughable SEC, they’ve got your back covered.

Who Will TARP Bailout America? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_Pento

Last week the nation’s number one trucking company, YRC Worldwide Inc., announced that it will seek $1 billion in TARP assistance to bailout the company’s pension plan.  Never mind the fact that the request is light years away from the original intention and approval given by congress to purchase toxic assets from banks’ balance sheets. The point is that the troubled company’s request of the government to cover its pension obligations should remind us of the bigger issue; who will bailout our country’s pension plan and can the USA TARP itself?

Audit the Fed, Then End It! / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

I have been very pleased with the progress of my legislation, HR 1207, which calls for a complete audit of the Federal Reserve and removes many significant barriers towards transparency of our monetary system. This bill now has nearly 170 cosponsors, with support from both Republicans and Democrats. Senator Bernie Sanders has introduced a companion bill in the Senate S604, which will hopefully begin to gain momentum as well. I am very encouraged to see so many of my colleagues in Congress stand with me for greater transparency in government.

Obama's Road to Economic Ruin and Higher Taxes / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe inimitable Adam Smith once quipped that "there is a great deal of ruination in a country". But then Mr Smith had never met President Obama whose idea of financial responsibility would make the feckless and cynical Louis XIV look like a nineteenth British treasurer. This ideologue has set the United States on a spending and borrowing binge that is unprecedented in its history and which is impossible to sustain.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHumiliated MP's across all parties that have been drowned out by the public chorus of outrage and indignation of the abuse of the MP expenses system have repeatedly stated how MP pay has failed to keep pace with that of NHS GP's which is one of the key reasons as to why they have resorted to what amounts to legalised theft from the electorate.

Bubble Blower Greenspan Continues to Denie Responsbility for U.S. Housing Bust / Politics / US Housing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen, during the invasion of Iraq, the United States Government issued its famous deck of playing cards with the 52 arch villains of the Iraqi police state, Saddam Hussein's face adorned the Ace of Spades. If the Obama Administration wanted to engage in a similar public relations campaign for the real estate crisis, the top card should be reserved for Alan Greenspan.

The Bank Bailout Bubble – The Bubble to End All Bubbles / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGerald Celente writes: The biggest financial bubble in history is being inflated in plain sight. This is the Mother of All Bubbles, and when it explodes, it will signal the end to the boom/bust cycle that has characterized economic activity throughout the developed world. Either unwilling or unable to call the bubble by its proper name, the media, Washington, and Wall Street describe the stupendous government expenditures on rescue packages, stimulus plans, buyouts, and takeovers as emergency measures needed to salvage the severely damaged economy.

Countries Should Use their Central Bank Reserves to Tame the Speculators / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Hudson writes: Yevgeny Primakov explains where Russia’s Neoliberal Model Went Wrong - Last week Izvestiya published an interview with former Premier Yevgeny Primakov, now president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. (Johnson’s Russia List published a translation on May 8). The discussion centered on a universal problem – what China and other Asian countries, as well as OPEC and Europe should do with the export surpluses and proceeds mounting up in their central banks from mortgaging or selling off their real estate and industry. Or to put matters in retrospect, what should they have done to avoid the neoliberal monetarist ideology that governments should do nothing at all with these surpluses, not even use them to fuel economic growth.
