Helicopter Ben Bernanke, Understanding the Chairman / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

When it comes to precious metals investing, there is no entity as important as the Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve, which sets monetary policy and has a direct impact on the purchasing power of the greenback, has virtually complete control over inflation, deflation and the price of your metals.  In the coming weeks, Ben Bernanke, the current Fed chairman, will be up for reappointment by the Senate of the United States.

Ukraine's Election and the Russian Resurgence / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUkrainians go to the polls Feb. 7 to choose their next president. The last time they did this, in November 2004, the result was the prolonged international incident that became known as the Orange Revolution. That event saw Ukraine cleaved off from the Russian sphere of influence, triggering a chain of events that rekindled the Russian-Western Cold War.

How Much More “Debt Recovery” can the U.S. Economy Take? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s make or break time for Democrats since the January 19 defeat in Massachusetts. At stake is Mr. Obama’s credibility as an agent for change. Exit polls show that voters see his main change to be favoritism to Wall Street, to a degree that the “old Democrats” would not have let a Republican administration get away with. Rivalry over just what party is more Wall Street friendly prompted Jay Leno to joke that Mr. Obama has done the impossible: resurrected the seemingly dying Republican Party and given it the coveted label of the “Party of Change” running against Wall Street.

How Wall Street's Stranglehold on the Economy Is Choking Americans / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: America's Founding Fathers were afraid of any concentration of power in the republic. They were particularly afraid that banking interests could hijack our fledgling democracy.

And yet today, 234 years later, our Founding Fathers' worst fears have come true. Wall Street's stranglehold on the economy threatens our very prosperity, and the future of a truly democratic republic.

U.S. Supreme Court Hands Nation Over to Corporations / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Americans have long had a sneaking suspicion that there was a “hidden hand” directing our government in Washington and the states, and they were right. The “hidden hand” was actually the corporations, unions, and other special interests that contribute literally $billions to our politicians in order to influence legislation that will favor them. This has happened even with the limits that have been placed on these groups that prevented them from directly contributing to campaigns.

Legalize Competing Currencies / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Much has been made recently about the supposed economic recovery. A few blips in a few statistics and many believe our troubles are all over. Of course, they have to redefine recovery as "jobless" to account for the lack of improvement on Main Street. But the banks have money, Wall Street is chugging along, and the administration would like to get on with other agendae.

We' The People / Politics / US Politics

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat’s quite the title, no? But without making it even longer, because it covers a vast and complicated subject, it encapsulates what I think will be the most important event that could become apparent to the masses this coming year, which means process would accelerate to a more recognizable end. Let me explain what I mean now that all this confusing stuff is up in the air and in need of some grounding; like our currencies. In the first place one needs to understand the difference between currency and money.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe story goes that Churchill offered a woman 5 million pounds to sleep with him. She hedged and said they would have to discuss terms. Then he offered her 5 pounds. “Sir!” she said.  “What sort of woman do you think I am?”  “Madam,” he replied, “We’ve already established that. Now we’re just haggling over the price.”

How Wall St Destroyed Private Medicine / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt my annual check-up, my doctor handed me a sheet explaining the reasons for office fee increases for Medicare Patients. It is worth reporting at length.

Medicare fixes the prices for Medicare patients’ health care. All office charges for Medicare, including office visit charges, have been set by the Federal government since 1984. In real terms (adjusted for inflation), these fixed prices are less today than they were three decades ago.

Darnall Community Health GP Surgery Could Close On NHS Spending Cuts / Politics / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA number of Sheffield GP surgeries including Darnall Community Health could face the axe on anticipated deep NHS spending cuts following the next general election. The British economy is in the midst of a deep debt crisis that risks a collapse into a hyperinflationary bust. The root of the problem lies in the fact that the UK government spends £180 billion more on public spending than it earns, i.e. government revenues are £500 billion, and government expenditure is £680 billion (2009-10 est). The deficit of £180 billion at 14% of GDP is not sustainable, which requires an urgent and near immediate cut in the deficit to below 6% of GDP to prevent igniting an out of control inflationary debt spiral.

America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: Stewart_Dougherty

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFOREWORD: At certain times, focusing on the big picture is important not just for investment success, but for personal welfare, and even survival. We believe such times are here. It is estimated that 98% of Americans have never held a gold coin in their hands. Yet 100% of Americans regularly handle Federal Reserve Notes. From a contrarian standpoint, the financial message from those two statistics is clear. Even so, gold is much more than money or an investment medium; it stands for liberty and throughout history has facilitated escape and ensured freedom.

Surpreme Court Ruling that Corporations are People Too? / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThursday’s landmark Supreme Court decision has been called everything from proper to despicable and misguided.  Clearly in the historical realm, every nation, empire, and circumstance of human organization has clear signposts that mark first progress, then the eventual destruction of the entity. That is not meant to be melodramatic; it is simply the natural progression of societies. If you don’t agree, ask the Greeks, Romans, and British. So where does Thursday’s decision fit into America’s progression?
