Gordon Brown Saved by Financial Armageddon / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast weeks near collapse of the worlds financial system that was brought home to British voters and labour party members on a near daily basis with an ever increasing meltdown being observed as Britain's biggest mortgage bank HBOS teetered on the brink of nationalisation, has to all intents and purposes brought the risk of an imminent leadership challenge against Gordon Brown to an end, this despite all of the protestations from the growing labour rebels who will fail to bring down their leader, but are succeeding in destroying any chances the Labour party has of winning the next election as the voters despise disunity within political parties.

Geopolitical Imperatives Driving Russia and United States New Cold War / Politics / New Cold War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several months we have written quite a bit about the Russian resurgence . This discussion predates Russia's military action in Georgia. Indeed, we have discussed the revival of Russian power since at least 2005, the implications of the FSB's return since April and the potential return of the Cold War since March.

The Death of Capitalism / Politics / Government Intervention

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets have soared late this week on the news that Superman (aka Henry Paulson) will once again fly into the heat of battle and snatch victory from the jaws of sure defeat. According to Paulson, the federal government is busily crafting a taxpayer funded scheme to absorb all of the bad mortgage debt and make Wall Street whole again. The idea of course is to put an end to the annoying financial crisis so we can get back to the serious business of overconsumption and debt accumulation.

The United States Becoming an Impoverished Nation / Politics / US Economy

By: Richard_C_Cook

Everything the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury Department are trying to do to stem the tide of the self-destructing U.S. financial system is a stopgap. They are locking the barn door after the horse—many horses—have already escaped, and they know it.

They also know the cause of the crisis is not subprime mortgage lending—that was just the trigger. Cries to re-regulate the failed financial industry are coming from Congress, the media, and investors around the world. But lax regulation is not the cause of the problem either.

Both offered the typical Capitol Hill solution to any problem – more regulations.

Russia Seeks to Reforge Cold-War Era Influence on its Borders / Politics / New Cold War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRussia is attempting to reforge its Cold War-era influence in its near abroad. This is not simply an issue of nostalgia, but a perfectly logical and predictable reaction to the Russian environment. Russia lacks easily definable, easily defendable borders. There is no redoubt to which the Russians can withdraw, and the only security they know comes from establishing buffers — buffers which tend to be lost in times of crisis. The alternative is for Russia to simply trust other states to leave it alone. Considering Russia's history of occupations, from the Mongol horde to Napoleonic France to Hitler's Germany, it is not difficult to surmise why the Russians tend to choose a more activist set of policies.

The Crash of Western Capitalist Civilization? / Politics / Economic Depression

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Train-wreck” doesn't even begin to describe what is starting to happen to the U.S. today with the financial crisis, an onrushing depression, and the failure of George W. Bush's war policy as he is faced down by Iran and the Russian bear.

But in an even broader sense, the West, as a civilization, after a century of world war and the utter failure of global finance capitalism, may have reached its limits.

"America Today", from Almanac 2021 / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

America was a culture based almost exclusively on material possessions and monetary acquisition, and chief proponent of pure capitalism. When money was exhausted, credit took its place, but soon there was no collateral to back that credit or revenue to pay it back. By this time, the nation and its people were indentured to foreign countries while simultaneously taking or threatening military actions against them. Since its inception, accelerating from the Civil War period, Plutocracy had risen and finally ruled the country making divisions between rich and poor extreme, though successfully masked through instruments of mass delusion.

United States Takes a Quantum Leap Towards Socialism / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnfortunately, we Americans now realize that the decision by Ben Bernanke to slash the Fed Funds rate to 2% (a three hundred twenty five basis point reduction) was just the opening act in this Republican administration's socialism play. At the time some wondered why the government didn't just allow home prices fall to historical averages rather than seeking to lower the value of the U.S. dollar and send inflation to a 17-year high. Now we have learned just this past weekend that the Department of the Treasury has come up with a plan for conservatorship of the GSEs, enacting the largest bailout in the history of the United States.

Before we go any further, I want to make something absolutely clear: I'm not endorsing either candidate's platform. I don't think they go nearly far enough in terms of true reform.

Russian Strategic Bombers in Washington's Backyard / Politics / New Cold War

By: STRATFOR

Summary
Two Russian Tu-160 “Blackjack” strategic bombers reportedly landed in Venezuela on Sept. 10. If this is a Russian military foray into the Caribbean, it will be the first since the Cold War. The move also give Venezuela an opportunity to annoy the United States by letting Washington's old Cold War rival operate from its territory, in the United States' backyard.

Sarah Palin the Fundamentalist Pitbull Wolf Killer / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Defibrillator usage increased last week after John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate and only a heartbeat from control of the nation's nuclear arsenal. But, shortly after most Republicans were shocked back to life they circled the wagons to declare she was the perfect choice. Apparently, the cure also included a dose of psychotropic drugs as well.

Fiscal Stupidity, Unintelligence in Federal Intelligence Agencies / Politics / US Politics

The Bush administration has found yet another way to waste taxpayer money while providing huge sums to private contractors. According to a survey of activities in 2007 by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, about a third of the federal professional intelligence workforce now consists of contractors, mostly in the Washington, DC area.

Russo-Georgian War Aftermath Impact on Financial Markets / Politics / Global Financial System

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA redefinition of Russia has taken place — rather jarringly — following its war with Georgia, and the entire world is reassessing its position and relations with the resurgent power. This reassessment includes financial factors — a much more tender area for today's Russia than for the Soviet Union, because Russia's large economy is tied into the global economy.

Fundamental Geopolitics of Russia, Europe and USA / Politics / New Cold War

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs details of the larger strategic picture emerge over what is at stake in the Georgia and larger Caucasus crisis it is becoming clearer that Moscow is determined to roll back not to the borders of Stalin and the Cold War of 1948. What Putin and now Medvedev have begun is a process of defusing the highly dangerous NATO expansion, led by the Washington warhawks since the end of the Cold War in 1990. Had events progressed as Washington had planned up until the surprise rejection of NATO membership from no less than ten European NATO member countries, including Germany and France at the April NATO Summit, Georgia would today have been in the admission process to NATO-ization along with Ukraine.

New Cold War and the Threat to Corporate Security / Politics / New Cold War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA lot has been written about last month's conflict between Russia and Georgia, and the continuing tensions in the region. Certainly, there were many important lessons to be gleaned from the conflict relating to the Russian military , Russian foreign policy and the broader geopolitical balance of power .

One facet of the Russian operations in Georgia that has been somewhat overlooked is the intelligence aspect. Clearly, the speed with which the Russian military responded to the Georgian invasion of South Ossetia indicates that they were not caught off guard. They knew in advance what the Georgians were planning and had time to prepare their troops for a quick response to the Georgian offensive.
