When Doctors strike, Less People Die! / Politics / NHS

By: TheDailyReckoning

Rob Mackrill writes : When doctors in Israel took industrial action and went on strike back in 2000, it highlighted a strange phenomenon – when doctors go on strike, the death rate plummets.

In this particular instance, the death rate fell by nearly 40% over the strike period. But it's by no means an isolated example.

NGO Dinosaurs such as the IMF and World Bank / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Ty_Andros

Most NGO's (non governmental organizations, funded by groups of nations for common goals) such as the United Nations, OECD, World bank, the International Monetary fund were valuable contributors to world stability after world wars I and II. But for lack a mission now all have sunk into the depths of corrupt bureaucracies. They are comic book characters now slinking around the world serving up self aggrandizing and self serving goals. Just as Government programs everywhere never are ended decades after their usefulness has ended, but never die, these dinosaurs still roam the earth fighting extinction. They are politically correct as their original intentions/missions were so virtuous, so nobody calls a spade a spade in the politically correct press. Now they are big money machines with heavy strings attached, power and control strings.

Anybody that is involved with them are in it for the money and the money they graft off them is enormous. Any nation taking advice from the IMF is doomed to poverty and economic destruction, its prescriptions are recipes for disaster. Ask Russia , Argentina , Thailand and Brazil to name a few.

Peter Taylor , reporting for BBC One 's Panorama programme, has uncovered evidence that questions the Security Service's claim that under the circumstances, it did all it could to prevent the 7/7 bombings.

At the time, MI5 did not know their identities.

In a break from the stock market wraps.

Talking to the Iranians
America after nearly 30 years is being forced into direct talks with Iran. As Condoleza Rice mentioned on Sunday whilst referring to Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki. “I will not rule out that we may encounter one another, This isn't an opportunity to talk about US-Iran issues. This is really an opportunity for all of Iraq's neighbours to talk about how to stablise Iraq”

Ron Paul Not a US Dollar Myth / Politics / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

We published an analysis on “ Dollar Myths ” in which we criticized spending habits in Washington:

"Interestingly, nobody seemed to focus on the fact that there is an unconventional solution to foreigners holding too much of our debt: live within your means and do not issue debt. Such an old fashioned concept would indeed strengthen the dollar. Unfortunately, none of the presidential candidates at either side of the aisle seem to have heard of this notion."

Iraq War, Inflation and War Finance / Politics / UK Economy

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The Pentagon recently reported that it now spends roughly $8.4 billion per month waging the war in Iraq, while the additional cost of our engagement in Afghanistan brings the monthly total to a staggering $10 billion. Since 2001, Congress has spent more than $500 billion on specific appropriations for Iraq. This sum is not reflected in official budget and deficit figures. Congress has funded the war by passing a series of so-called "supplemental" spending bills, which are passed outside of the normal appropriations process and thus deemed off-budget.

This is fundamentally dishonest: if we're going to have a war, let's face the costs-- both human and economic-- squarely. Congress has no business hiding the costs of war through accounting tricks.

Shocking news about Gordon Brown - Sold Half of Britians Gold Reserves at Bear Market Low / Politics / UK Politics

By: Adrian_Ash

"...Two billion here...two billion there. Pretty soon you're just funding a war in the desert or paying one-in-four of the working population to stay at home on sick leave..."

SHOCKING NEWS from the Sunday Times in London . Gordon Brown is an idiot.

More shocking still, his boss Tony Blair – the prime minister who led Britain to war in Iraq on spurious evidence of WMDs – doesn't always speak the truth. Their political party, New Labour, likes to bury bad news. And expert knowledge counts for nothing at Westminster .

Hence the biggest financial story in the United Kingdom right now – bigger by far according to the column inches than its record-breaking credit bubble – is that Gordon Brown "ignored advice" before selling half the nation's gold at rock-bottom prices in 1999.

Vote Now - Should the US Attack Iran's nuclear and military infrastructure? / Politics / Iran

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As the US military build up continues to gain momentum in the Persian Gulf, which includes some 50 warships comprising of 2 aircraft carrier battle groups. These military assets are reinforced by well established military bases in neighbouring countries, with hundreds of war planes to enable around the clock bombing capability.

Any attack against Iran would firstly be targeted at Iranian air bases and command and control structures as well as naval ports so as to limit the immediate retaliatory response, before around the clock bombing of the well dug in Iranian Nuclear facilities would take place.

We ask the question should the US attack Iran's nuclear & military infrastructure ?

British Soldiers Banned from Selling their Stories - Poll result says NO to Selling / Politics / Iran

By: John_York

In a swift turn of events, the Ministry of Defence has reversed its decision to allow the released British soldiers / personnel from selling further stories, after mounting negative response to the TV and press stories sold for six figure sums. Des Browne (Defence Secretary) announced - "No further service personnel will be allowed to talk to the media about their experiences in return for payment." and stated that a 'review of regulations' would now take place following outrage from all sections of the public.

This follows the Market Oracle Opinion Poll conducted between 7th and 9h April 2007, which resulted in 62% of respondents voting that the released Navy Military personnel should NOT be allowed to sell their stories to the media. Click here for the background to the capture and opinion poll

The 15 British Navy personnel that were released by Iran on Thursday have been given the green light to sell their stories to the media. It is likely that some stories could sell for more than ten times their annual salaries. Especially from the only woman captive, Faye Turney, who is expected to earn the most.

Iran crisis still ready to blow … US preparing to Attack / Politics / Gold & Silver

By: Money_and_Markets

Larry Edelson writes:Yesterday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced he will free the 15 British sailors and marines captured on March 23. That's welcome news.

However, I don't think this political maneuver changes the underlying situation one iota. And gold's price is confirming that. Instead of falling on the news of the pending release of the hostages, the yellow metal soared nearly $10 to its highest level since last May!

My view on the Iran crisis hasn't changed one bit: Despite the potential release of the British hostages, a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities is coming, sooner rather than later.

The British and American public appear to being hyped up towards a possible attack against Iran . Despite recent rhetoric. the actual consequences of an attack need to be fully investigated before another ‘Mission Accomplished' photo opportunity turns into something far worse than the quagmire in Iraq, which so far is on target to cost over $1 trillion, with estimates being revised higher every quarter.

Iran - Iran - Iran - Despite release of British hostages, US Attack still Imminent / Politics / Iran

By: Christopher_Laird

The ongoing situation with Iran is hugely gold and oil bullish right now, and will be for the coming months. The recent statement by Iran that they will free the British naval hostages is just one detail. It solves nothing fundamental.

First of all, before I discuss why, I want to comment on several emails I got about my views that Iran is going to be attacked. The comments went along the line: ‘the US is too tied down in Iraq, won't even think of another war..' etc.

I disagree. So let's get into the reasons why there is likely an attack on Iran….

By: John_York

Following a Freedom of Information request, BBC World Service Newshour has learnt that a senior British Government official advised ministers to show "caution" about publicly criticising a report published last October in the Lancet, which estimated that 655,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war in Iraq.

If the Lancet survey is correct, two-and-a-half per cent of the Iraqi population - an average of more than 500 people a day - have been killed since the start of the war.

BBC findings suggest best and worst locations to live and people's attitudes to climate change.

The city of Birmingham could be the worst place to live in Britain if you want to avoid climate change, according to one of Britain's leading climatologists in an interview for BBC One 's Inside Out programme Climate Change Now (Friday 30 March at 7.30pm).

Dr David Viner , a senior scientist at the world renowned Climatic Research Unit, favours Somerset, South West Devon and inland North Norfolk as among the best places to live with climate change in the future (see Notes to Editors for full list).
