Towards a New Monetary Order / Politics / Central Banks

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHenry Ford is alleged to have said that "it is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."

The spirit of his words encourages us to put forward questions about the banking and monetary system — especially in view of the international credit-market crisis. Is it a good thing that central banks have cut interest rates essentially to zero and have increased the base-money supply dramatically to support the financial sector? Will depression be prevented if governments underwrite banks' balance sheets and run up huge deficits in an attempt to strengthen production and employment?

U.S. Afghanistan Strategy After McChrystal / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

The commander of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, Gen. Stanley McChrystal has resigned his command. His resignation is a direct result of his controversial remarks in a Rolling Stone interview broken late June 21, and not a reflection or indictment of the campaign he has led in Afghanistan. But that campaign and the strategy behind it are having significant issues of their own.

The Greek Plague, Sticky Wages / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the deaths of three bank employees, Greek president Karolos Papoulias lamented that the debt-ridden country had finally "reached the edge of the abyss." It should be so lucky. Abysses allow for falls into the deep unknown. If real wages would make the plunge, Greek workers would have a future with more options than striking and senseless destruction.

The Brilliant but Confused Radicalism of George Orwell / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jeff_Riggenbach

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Arthur Blair, who is best known under his pseudonym, George Orwell, was born 107 years ago this month in India, where his father was a British civil servant. His father's job, according to Orwell biographer Gordon Bowker, "was to oversee the growing of opium, mainly for export to China." Though young Eric's mother had herself grown up in Burma, the daughter of yet another British civil servant, she had long since tired of Asia; and when her son was only a year old she successfully lobbied her husband to ship her and their two children — Eric and his older sister, Marjorie — back to England. Eric did not see his father again for eight years, until he was nine years old and had come home for Christmas vacation from his "prep school," St. Cyprian's.

Is Alan Greenspan a National Security Risk? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Reuters) - "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday said 'outrageous' advice from former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan helped create record U.S. budget deficits that put national security at risk." -February 25, 2010

Alan Greenspan lamented U.S. budget deficits in the Wall Street Journal on June 18, 2010 ("U.S. Debt and the Greece Analogy"). For an analysis of Greenspan's flapdoodle, Barry Ritholtz covered the turf on his blog, The Big Picture. The former Federal Reserve chairman should have withheld comment, given his personal contribution to the nation's poverty-stricken state.

Housing Benefit Illustrates Britains Disgraceful Wasteful, Benefits Culture / Politics / UK Tax & Budget

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Coalition government's measures to cut spending on Britians huge £110 billion benefits bill by £11 billion per year by 2014-15 is being met with much outrage and indignation by vested interests. However it is ordinary tax payers who should feel the real indignation when they find out that people are able to claim upto £1,000 per week, that's £52,000 per year in housing benefits alone, which is more than twice the average salary.

Detroit is Dying, Impact of Globalization, Social Decay and Urban Destruction / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA YouTube video titled "Dying Detroit" takes you on a tour of "neighborhoods literally falling apart"—through streets that look like "a hurricane has recently swept through, destroying nearly everything on its path." Thousands of houses have been abandoned—in many areas 50-60% of the houses are in foreclosure. Some blocks have only a few homes left standing. A thousand people a month are leaving what has been called " America ’s fastest dying city."

Deepwater Horizon: The Worst-Case Scenario / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard Heinberg writes: Reports from the Gulf of Mexico just keep getting worse. Estimates of the rate of oil spillage from the Deepwater Horizon wellhead just keep gushing (the latest official number: up to 60,000 barrels per day). Forecasts for how long it will take before the leak is finally plugged continue pluming toward August—maybe even December. In addition to the oil itself, BP has (in this case deliberately) spilled a million gallons of toxic Corexit dispersant. Biologists’ accounts of the devastation being wreaked on fish, birds, amphibians, turtles, coral reefs, and marshes grow more apocalyptic by the day—especially in view of the fact that the vast majority of animal victims die alone and uncounted.

Americans Worried Sick About Their Economic Future Are Barely Hanging on / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recession that began in December 2007 produced a change in Americans' perception of their economic future. They moved from the tradition of hope to one of just barely hanging on. I have never seen this before. Only someone born around 1910 can recall anything like it, assuming that he recalls anything at all.

Labor Market Dynamics, Defending the Rate Buster / Politics / Employment

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWalter Block writes: The scene is familiar from hundreds of movies featuring labor themes: the young eager worker comes to the factory for the first time, determined to be a productive worker. In his enthusiasm, he happily produces more than the other workers who have been at the factory many years, and who are tired, stooped, and arthritic. He is a "rate buster."

Bashing BP For Doing Exactly What Government Led Them to Do / Politics / US Politics

By: Matthew_J_Novak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been tremendous criticism in the media of late regarding BP's response to the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and the subsequent spilling of millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

An ABC news / Washington Post poll shows that 81 percent of those polled stated they thought unfavorably of the response by BP to the spill. The same poll shows that nearly two-thirds of those responding favor criminal charges against BP and other companies involved in the spill.

Both the political and economic worlds have changed one hell of a lot since the last elections, in 2008.

Gulf Oil Spill - The Greatest Disaster Since The Flood? / Politics / Environmental Issues

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoshua S. Burnett writes: Most articles begin with a purpose statement revealing what the author desires to convince the reader of.  This article is different.  These few paragraphs begin with a plea for someone to tell me that I’ve got the evidence all wrong and that what I see and know is a smoke filled illusion void of reality.  I want someone who knows differently to tell me.  So as you read this article please understand that I’m not attempting to be a fear-mongerer.  Please know I’m no prophet or guru, just a guy who looks at all the evidence he has and draws conclusions.  And if you know I’m wrong and why, please write and tell me.

Gold and the Architecture for a New World Financial System / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Symposium was held at the historic town of Hall in Tirol, Austria, for a good reason. Hall in Tirol (just east of Innsbruck) had been the “monetary capital” of Europe for centuries.

It all started in 1477 with the moving of the Mint from Meran in South Tirol (now part of Italy) where it had been operating since 1271, to Burg Hasegg in Hall, by Archduke Sigismund of Austria (1427-1496). At the same time the Archduke instituted important monetary reforms. He opened the Mint to silver. As a result, silver mining was revived in the valleys of Tirol, and new mining methods and technology were developed. Ultimately, the much-debased coinage of Medieval Europe was replaced by sound currency that brought heretofore unprecedented prosperity to the people of Renaissance Europe. The currency reform of Archduke Sigismund has laid the foundations for the architecture of a new world financial system.

GasLand, Too Small To Matter / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I watched the documentary GASLAND last night on HBO my blood began to boil. I’m sure my blood pressure went up dramatically during the 1 hour and 40 minute film. After watching our corrupt government decide that the biggest baddest banks on the planet were too big to fail over the last two years and giving my children’s and their children’s money to these behemoth criminal enterprises, I was not surprised to see poor working class Americans treated like dirt by these same corrupt politicians. Big corporations can buy off politicians to ensure profits. The “small people”, as the Chairman of BP likes to call them, are expendable and can be ignored. They are too small to matter.
