Swine Human Flu Hybrid Spreading Fast Towards Global Pandemic / Politics / Global Pandemic

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday’s world is connected closely because of air travel. This makes everyone, no matter where they live, threatened as the disease easily travels from location to location virtually within hours. In nature, influenza viruses circulate continuously among animals, especially birds. Even though such viruses might theoretically develop into pandemic viruses, in Phase 1 no viruses circulating among animals have been reported to cause infections in humans. Now at Phase 4, it is not yet considered a pandemic but the potential does exist.

Latvia Claims $200 Billion For 84 Year of Russian Occupation / Politics / Russia

By: Pravda

Latvia, one of the three Baltic States, a former Soviet republic, found a way out of the financial crisis. The country calculated the damage that the nation suffered from the Soviet occupation after WWII. Forty-eight years of Soviet power supposedly cost the country $200 billion. The amount includes Latvia’s costs for the loss of its independence, the deportation of the population, the ecological damage and even the Afghan war and the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Latvia intends to collect the amount from Russia with the help of the European Union.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: BEIJING, The People's Republic of China - It's Day Two of my three-week trip here, and already I feel myself getting quickly reacquainted with this capital city. If you've never been here, it's hard to do this city justice with simple prose - and without sounding a bit cliché. Beijing - like much of emerging China - is special. And it deserves to be seen that way.

By: Pravda

Barack Obama’s recent initiative to expose the information about CIA’s secret torture chambers has come into effect already. As it turned out, the information is directly connected with a person from the previous US administration. It goes about Condoleezza Rice. As National Security Advisor in 2002, Rice gave her personal approval to water tortures.

Swine Flu to Accelerate Collapse of Global Economy / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMankind has finally become aware that the financial crisis is not the most dangerous thing in the world. The world has come across a new danger – the swine flu virus. Many explain yesterday’s reduction of stock markets with the threat of the epidemic of the new disease. The struggle against the distribution of the new virus has made a number of countries ban the imports of pork. Russia introduced a ban too.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI send you Outside the Box each week not to make you comfortable but to make you think. Usually it is on some financial topic, but life is more than investments. Economics is not an isolated discipline (more like an art form I think) so we have to have a real understanding of the world around us. This week I offer two essays which made me both think and reflect. We live in a world which wants easy solutions to complex problems, and wish as we may, will not get easy solutions which will work.

U.S. Treasury Smoke and Mirrors Turning Bankrupt Banks Solvent / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePreferred Equity into Common Equity – Accounting Alchemy? - Congress currently is in no mood to authorize more funds to help recapitalize the financial system. The Treasury says this will not be a problem. If financial institutions need additional capital from the taxpayers to remain solvent, the Treasury will simply shift the preferred shares it already owns in financial institutions to common equity shares. Voila - capital adequate financial institutions! Really?

United States Empire Built on False Prosperity Collapsing / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKEEP ON ROCKIN IN THE FREE WORLD - The American Republic is 226 years old. The Roman Empire lasted 13 centuries before collapsing. The Roman emperors attempted to stave off the collapse by providing bread and circuses to the masses. Feeding Christians to lions worked only for so long. I picture Caligula “Mad Money” Cramer exhorting the masses that the worst was over and not to worry about the Vandals and the Huns. Nero “Mustard Seed” Kudlow probably saw a recovery on the horizon as Barbarians were at the gates of the city. Cleopatra “Money Honey” Bartiromo was proclaiming that the stupid masses didn’t know what was best for the system. Caesar “Glimmers of Hope” Obama was sure that if they just distributed more bread and added a few more circuses, things would improve by the Ides of March.

U.S. ‘Soft Power’, Dollar Standard and the Banks / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteven Lesh writes: The privilege of supplying the world’s reserve currency, the money nations use to conduct business beyond their borders, is a source of power to the nation that possesses it more valuable than the most powerful military.  Since virtually all money is created ‘out of thin air’ by entries in bank ledgers, the nation supplying the world’s reserve currency has the power to create enough money to buy the world.  Working in conjunction with its banks, a nation supplying the reserve currency can conquer and control vastly more of the world’s wealth than it could hope to with military force.

Congress Targets Credit Card Companies Bad Practices / Politics / Credit Cards & Scoring

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith much fanfare this week, Congress and the Administration began a series of actions designed to protect over-leveraged consumers from the high fees imposed by credit card lenders.
