China Factor on US Economics and Politics - The Adverse Feedback Loop, Part One / Politics / China

By: Paul_Petillo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy wife begins by offering a disclaimer. She is, she tells me, not a watcher of The View but tunes in only for the first five minutes. I, as a disclaimer, never watch the program nor do I consider myself much more than common couch critic of what television has to offer. The reason she brings this up to me over cocktails one night hinges on China. Why, she asks me, does Whoopi Goldberg seem so fixated on the country?

Why is the Centre for Independent Studies Supporting the Destructive Carbon Tax? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Gerard_Jackson

Last week I wrote an article in which I condemned a carbon tax that John Humphreys is promoting for the Centre for Independent Studies. Mr Humphreys responded with an email to a reader in which he said: "I never claimed that a tax was a free-market mechanism". But I never accused him of making such a claim. What I did was call his approach "fallacious" and I used the following quote in support of my opinion:

Obama Beating Clinton - Hope Prevails Over Help / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Hope mongering has been working much better than experience mongering. Now, the rest of the story….

As befits American culture, politics is all about slick selling to the masses. Hillary Clinton is selling Day-1 help to victims and sufferers. Barack Obama is selling effervescent hope to yes-we-can dreamers. This media hyped horse race is like a fight between diet Coke and diet Pepsi, artificially sweetened candidates devoid of real nourishment.

President Bush's African Safari to Find Friendly Faces / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

President Bush is in Africa this week, sulking because he didn't get his way.

In one of the rare times the past seven years, the House of Representatives, now under Democrat control for the first time in 12 years, defended the Constitution and refused to allow the President to bully it with a program of fear mongering. He really tried, though.

The Democrats and the US Economy: Facts and Fallacies / Politics / US Politics

By: Gerard_Jackson

Democrats are doing what they do best: promising what they cannot possibly deliver, particularly when it comes to the economy. Listening to Dems pronounce on the economy is tantamount to "cruel and unusual punishment". What these clowns don't understand is that economics is a highly theoretical discipline with particular characteristics of its own, the main one being that economic problems tend to require long chains of complex reasoning. It is this inherent difficulty that gives rise to an abundance of fallacies and explains why people, seeing only the immediate effects of a particular policy or investment decision, tend to fall into the fallacy of composition and assume the same must hold for the economy as a whole.

Russia 's Czar Putin? / Politics / Russia

By: James_R_Voigt

Russia is a misunderstood country. The majority of Russian people are free thinking and determined to make Russia an open and fair society. Russia will never become a little America; however, Russia can be a key trading partner and ally. Many political observers have been predicting the absolute KGB style seizure of power by Vladimir Putin, particularly when it comes to the presidential elections in 2008 and an anticipated attempt to modify or ignore the Russian constitution and seek a third term.

Democracy in the Madhouse / Politics / Social Issues

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

The success of self-government ultimately depends on the nature of the self to be governed.

Historians believe the earliest example of democracy occurred in India during the 6 th century B.C. There is, however, an earlier example, the story of which was lost for centuries and only recently rediscovered.

Eliminate Investment and Corporate Taxes - Investors For The Fair Tax Unite / Politics / Taxes

By: Steve_Selengut

The vast majority of Americans are investors, although many don't realize it. The vast majority of Americans are creative with their 1040 numbers, although most won't admit it. The majority of Americans would agree that investing, retirement planning, and estate preservation would be easier to manage if the Internal Revenue Code was comprehensible. A landslide of American voters would elect any candidate championing IRC replacement surgery.

Western Democracies Have Evolved Into Tyrannical Governments / Politics / New World Order

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps a global political apocalypse has already arrived.

Activists and dissidents should understand that evil forces and tyrannical governments have evolved. Just as human knowledge and science expand, so do the strategies and instruments used by rulers, elites and plutocrats. By learning from history and using new technology they have smarter tools of tyranny. The best ones prevent uprisings, revolutions and political reforms. Rather than violently destroy rebellious movements, they let them survive as marginalized and ineffective efforts that divert and sap the energy of nonconformist and rebellious thinkers. Real revolution remains an energy-draining dream, as evil forces thrive.

NHS GP's Want More Money to See Patients Out of Hours / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Health Secretary Alan Johnson is writing to every GP in England requesting that they change their working hours to meet patient care demands. The response from GP's doing the rounds on the breakfast TV is to demand more money. More money on top of the tripling in salaries under New Labour. Virtually all GP's are paid well in excess of £100,000 and many in excess of £200,000 per annum. Whilst at the same time GP's have cut their working hours as the NHS primary trusts fly in doctors from mainland Europe to cover for out of hours care for the majority of GP surgeries.

Internet Undersea Cable Cut - Targeting of Iran? / Politics / Iran

There has been some concern that the undersea internet cables, that have been cut recently, are perhaps no accident?

The first incident happened 8km from Alexandria in Egypt, which involved 2 cables apparently alongside each other. According to initial reports, the cables may have been "snapped" by a ship´s anchor.

US / Mexico Border, Drug Trafficing and the US Economy / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Mauldin

Protecting the border is a big part of the presidential political debates. This week in a special edition of Outside the Box, my friends at Stratfor give us yet one more reason why we should be concerned when we look south. The topic not only concerns security, but our economy. The drug trade is becoming a problem. This is a short but very disturbing letter, but you should read it.

Socialist Myths vs Capitalism / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gerard_Jackson

I am forever getting emails from ignorant socialists accusing capitalism of all manner of heinous crimes. Clearly the socialist view of economic history is deeply rooted in Western society, a view based on facts that turn out to be nothing but socialist myths derived from political prejudices deeply hostile to the classical liberal order. This, I believe, accounts for the staggering ignorance of leftwing critics. The contents of one particularly stupid email immediately brought to mind an especially bigoted anti-capitalist tirade by Bryan Patterson that he wrote some years ago.

Investment Politics of 2008: Protect Your Wallet / Politics / US Politics

By: Steve_Selengut

The parade of promises is marching down Main Street. For too many months to come, politicians of all descriptions, parties, and ideologies will be courting our votes... they have the cure for all that is wrong in the world, they tell us. With crystal clear hindsight, every candidate criticizes the decisions of every incumbent, from the Town Council of Podunk to The Presidency itself. You've heard it all before; it never changes. But we all know that little will be accomplished. Ten years from now, we'll be grumbling about the same things that bothered us ten years ago! But we listen to (and sometimes even believe) the same garbage, campaign after campaign. Aren't you tired of this cycle of frustration? If you thought you could make a difference, would you try?

Hillary Clinton Wins! Barack Obama Loses , Pollsters Lose! / Politics / US Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Contrary to ALL of the polls and political pundits, Hilary Clinton Beat Barack Obama into second place by a healthy distance of 4%+ in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary.

Hours before the poll, Hilary Clinton had literally shed a tear in the face of impeding defeat, which is now being used by political pundits as the moment that the polls turned in her favour. However at the time no one indicated that the sign of weakness could be construed as positive for the Clinton campaign.

How could the pollsters get it so wrong ?

George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? / Politics / Middle East

By: Ian_Brockwell

George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? The recent “Al Qaeda” video, which was posted just days before George Bush's trip to the Middle East, urges fighters to meet the President with bombs.

U.S.-born Adam Gadahn, who appears on the almost one hour long video, was quoted as saying in Arabic “Now we direct an urgent call to our militant brothers in Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula .. to be ready to receive the Crusader slayer Bush in his visit to Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula in the beginning of January and to receive him not with flowers or clapping but with bombs and booby-trapped vehicles”
