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.

Government Fuels Mass Hysteria Against AIG Employees on Bonuses / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ayn_Rand

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Schwartz writes: In dealing with AIG, why are people pussyfooting around? 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”.

Let's Play Pretend at Toxic Asset Valuations / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen elementary school kids want to escape the confines of their circumstances they pretend to be pirates, princesses, and Jedi knights. Now, with the relaxation of "mark to market" valuation rules announced yesterday by the accounting trade's self-regulatory body, our bankrupt financial institutions can escape their own reality by pretending to be solvent. The unraveling of our fairytale economy over the last few months has not yet convinced us that the time has come to put away childish things. The applause that greeted the news yesterday on Wall Street is a clear sign that we still have some growing up to do.

U.S. Treasury Bad Asset Programs May be a Stable Foundation for Economic Recovery / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: The U.S. Treasury's much-maligned Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) and its new “prequel,” the Public-Private Investment Program (PPIP) have been viewed by the markets and skeptical prospective participants as merely a price discovery mechanism which, with a lot of luck, might create a floor under toxic security prices.

G20 Summit Members Agree to Waste $5 Trillion / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Pravda

A compromise, the American style, became the main result of the G20 summit in London. The world's leading countries decided to boost the world economy with the help of grand investments, which goes along the US model of the anti-crisis struggle. Such an approach may result in the loss of control over the situation, economists say. The United States and Great Britain solve their own problems first and foremost.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe G20 summit in London agreed on a plan to fight the global economic crisis and provided a down payment of $1.1 trillion to support developing economies during the crisis. The French and Germans despite much rhetoric and play acting of threatening to 'walking out' signed on the dotted line, as I stated they would in an earlier article, as the consequences of a failure of the summit would literally mean Financial Armageddon.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Wall Street, that is. So hyped by advance fanfare, Timothy Geithner unveiled his Public-Private Investment Program (PPIP) on March 23, the latest in a growing alphabet soup of handouts topping $12.5 trillion and counting - so much in so many forms, in "gov-speak" language, with so many changing and moving parts, it's hard for experts to keep up let alone the public, except to sense something is very wrong.

Madoff Ponzi Scheme Collapse in Perspective / Politics / Scams

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Savings & Loan Crisis had Michael Milken. The dotcom charade had Bernie Ebbers, Kenneth Lay, and Jeffery Skilling. These men have been selected as the scapegoats to distract the public away from the real criminals that caused each crisis. And now, the world's largest real estate and banking crisis – much larger than all previous heists combined – has Bernie Madoff. He will serve the same purpose.
