Peak Evolution - Benefits Culture, Shrinking Brains, Are Human's De-Evolving? / Politics / Science

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The spark for insights into arriving at final trend conclusions for financial markets and economic indicators can originate far removed from the technical studies of markets i.e. as a consequence of focusing on the key mega-trends, and none is more mega than that for the evolutionary trend of the human species and the probable direction that it is likely to trend towards, which is the focus of this article.

Why Won't They Tell Us the Truth About NSA Spying? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

In 2001, the Patriot Act opened the door to US government monitoring of Americans without a warrant. It was unconstitutional, but most in Congress over my strong objection were so determined to do something after the attacks of 9/11 that they did not seem to give it too much thought. Civil liberties groups were concerned, and some of us in Congress warned about giving up our liberties even in the post-9/11 panic. But at the time most Americans did not seem too worried about the intrusion.

Detroit Bankruptcy and the Drive Toward Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_Grey

The bankruptcy of Detroit is being widely cited in the media as a model for the use of unelected officials and bankruptcy courts to rip up agreements and impose sweeping cuts on the pensions and health benefits of public employees, not only in Detroit, but in cities across the United States.

The Obama administration has rejected any federal aid to ameliorate the financial crisis of Detroit and counter the effort of state and city officials, fronting for the banks and bondholders, to use bankruptcy to gut workers’ benefits. This makes it clear that the Detroit bankruptcy is part of a broader nationwide policy that is being coordinated by the White House.

Energy Regulators Battle The Post-Enron Syndrome / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Andrew_McKillop

USA-EUROPE SAME COMBAT
The EU probe into potential rigging of oil prices in Europe and outside Europe, launched in early July is comparable by its scope, possible impact and potential fines levied against wrongdoers, to the precedent set by the Libor rigging scandal. European regulators' scrutiny of Libor (the London interbank offered rate) interest rate benchmarks finally led, in 2011, to the Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS), UBS, and Barclays being fined a total of about $2.5 billion.

Washington's Fake Terror Threat / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

They're in various forms. They repeat with disturbing regularity. America's war on terror targets Islam. At issue is duplicitous scaremongering. It advances Washington's imperium. 

Wars of aggression follow. False arrests target innocent victims. Terror threats repeat. They're strategically timed. They change the subject. They divert attention.

Ruinous Inflation Proposals Mean America Will Be Zimbabwe 2 / Politics / Inflation

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

In this day and age, one should never assume that “educated” persons, especially those who have “earned” advanced degrees in economics, know the least bit of economics or possess the least bit of sense that might steer them away from the refuse that passes for economic thought. This is especially true in the case of those who propose ruinous money policies, thereby joining the ranks of monetary cranks and demonstrating to one and all an economics IQ south of 25.

Fabulous Liabilities For 'Fab' Tourre / Politics / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

UNAMIMOUS JURY
A nine-member federal jury in Manhattan on July 31 unanimously found Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre guilty on 6 of 7 counts of fraud brought against him by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the financial sector watchdog. The former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. trader was accused of misleading certain participants in a 2007 “crisis-era” deal that cost them $1 billion, and resulted in the Paulson & Co hedge fund gaining more than $1 billion.

It will be madness in America soon, Out of control / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

I bought a copy of USA Today Weekend at the supermarket and wanted to gag. A front-page lead story showing a picture of Edward Snowden's Russian permit was titled: "Welcome, Comrade Snowden" (Is John McCain now writing their headlines?). To read American mainstream news is to collide with an illusory but impenetrable wall of rigid propaganda (rah, rah, America #1; rah, rah, S&P 1700; rah, rah, Washington vs. a world of enemies). In short, the paper's almost one-million readers were encouraged. In so many words, "Don't worry about NSA. Congress has heard the American people and is now moving to reform it. Sleep well tonight, Senator Patrick Leahy is awake."

How Obamacare Bailouts Work - A Struggling City's Best New Budget Tool / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Diane Alter writes: Call it an "Obamacare Bailout" - while millions of Americans look for ways to opt out of Obamacare, broke Detroit is trying to get its residents signed up as soon as possible.

You see, Detroit has grossly over-pledged its benefits, pensions and fully-funded health care plans to thousands of public sector employees for decades, while its tax revenue dwindled.

Bradley Manning Still Facing a Lifetime With His Kidnappers / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Yesterday, Private Bradley Manning was charged and faces "up to" 136 years in a cage for being someone Thomas Jefferson would consider a patriot.  Considering the world's oldest person died at 116 years old last month it is quite clearly a life sentence.  For myself, at 42, I consider anything more than 10 years a life sentence.  Not that I couldn't still have fun at 52... but a lot less fun with a lot more viagra.

Reasons Why Obamacare Is Going to Ruin Your Medical Care… and Your Life / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Casey_Research

By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

Of course you've heard of "liar loans"—in the heyday of subprime mortgages, unscrupulous lenders handed out mortgages to practically everyone with a pulse. "So you're saying you make $100,000 a year? Great, check this box titled 'McMansion.'"

We all know how this charade ended. Now Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D., an acclaimed expert on the subject of Obamacare, warns that the delay of the employer mandate by one year will force Americans into a single-payer system, raising insurance premiums and encouraging "liar subsidies" that might prove fiscally devastating. Not to mention that under the new health care system, you may well end up dead…

Capitalism, A Norwegian Rat And Some Cockroaches / Politics / Science

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Often, for some reason, when you want to make a simple point, before you know it it mushrooms into something much bigger. Like in this case, blasphemy. All I started out with was the notion that if we put a dollar value on something like an Arctic melt, or the extinction of species, we are making fundamental mistakes. Which invariably show in the way we reach the conclusions, presented as "scientific", that make us put such values on potential or already final events.

How We Can Fix State Education and the U.S. Economy / Politics / Educating Children

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: One of the biggest threats to the future of the U.S. economy is that more and more of the U.S. workforce lacks the skills needed to fill the jobs being created in the 21st century.

Last year, a survey by ManpowerGroup found that 49% of U.S. employers are struggling to fill essential jobs, because they can’t find workers with the proper skills.

The practices and methods of manipulating commodity markets, is a staple topic in financial journalism. Options, futures and exotic forms of derivatives, often put under the microscope, gives rise to calls for substantive regulation. One area of the commodity trade, seldom examined is that involved with physical commodities trading. With much fanfare, Under siege, JPMorgan to quit physical commodities, a Reuters announcement has many seasoned street professionals shocked.
