Goldman's "How much of that shitty deal did you sell to your clients?" / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday's hearings of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations laid the groundwork for future criminal prosecutions of Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein and his chief lieutenants whose reckless and self-serving actions helped to precipitate the financial crisis. Committee chairman Senator Carl Levin adroitly managed the proceedings in a way that narrowed their scope and focused on four main areas of concern. Through persistent questioning, which bordered on hectoring, Levin was able to prove his central thesis:

Goldman's Fraud, But What About John Paulson’s Other $13 Billion? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDisaster has been good to John Paulson.

The hedge fund manager rose from relative obscurity to legend within the span of 12 months when his bets against the subprime mortgage market netted him and his investors billions. The returns on invested capital were absolutely absurd: one of his funds returned 590 in 2007, another returned 353 percent. By the time the smoke cleared, Paulson had made $3.7 billion for himself, and another $10+ billion for his investors.

Peter Schiff, "I Think I Have a Real Chance of Winning a Senate Seat" / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

When I first announced my candidacy for the United States Senate I really had no idea how well my message would resonate in the Nutmeg State.  Well we’re six-months in, and my campaign is really gaining momentum.  I am very encouraged with the progress we have made.  I am well received at the Republican Town Committee meetings with several towns having already voting to endorse me.   I have more volunteers and more donors then any other candidate in the race and reporters statewide agree that I won the only televised debate, which explains why neither of my opponents will agree to another.

The Human Revolution - It WILL Occur! / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

"Austerity" (poverty) for the people; profit for the few. This is the anthem of free-marketers, speculators and governments held hostage by them. The "Greek fire" is a monetary ruse used by centralized financiers to further their encircling despotism using capital as an instrument of power; ipso facto requiring the subjugation of workers (the many) to lives of imminent hopelessness and desperation, and governments to subservient powerlessness. It is a grand but deadly game that isn't about money, per se. It is about power.

Greece Requires Conservatorship / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Axel_Merk

In our assessment, Greece should be placed into conservatorship by the European Commission. Greece’s liquidity issues have morphed into a solvency crisis. Greece’s challenges are fiscal, which requires a political solution. Therefore, Greece’s problems cannot be resolved by the European Central Bank (ECB), although ECB policy can affect the dynamics as this crisis evolves.

Western Civilization is Doomed / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding." Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I was a boy, I knew a man who repaired clocks and watches as a hobby. (Quartz watches had not yet been invented.) I often sat for hours in utter fascination watching him work. Then one day, I asked, "Frank, how do you know how to do that?" He answered, "Johnny, what man has done, man can do." Therein lies the fallacy of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Science and technology is a Pandora's Box. Once opened by one man, company, or country, what is emitted soon becomes everyone's.

Greece Driven Into Financial and Economic Crisis / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProf. Ingo Schmidt writes: Neoliberal order reigns in the world. Stock markets are recovering from the crash in the fall of 2008. Private banks are no longer weighed down by bad loans that were added to public deficits. The latter were rising anyways because the economic crisis had sent tax revenues on a downward slide. Add further bailout money for financial companies and fiscal stimulus and you get a veritable fiscal crisis of the state.

Imperial Crime and Complicity In Ancient Rome and Modern America / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTim Case writes: "The punishment of the criminal is measured by the degree of astonishment of the judge who finds his crime incomprehensible." ~ Friedrich W. Nietzsche (1844–1900)

You would think that if the present administration with its adoring minions is going to rule by the Machiavellian code, as outlined in the The Prince, they would at least take to heart the admonition that "as princes cannot help being hated by someone, they ought, in the first place, to avoid being hated by every one, and when they cannot compass this, they ought to endeavor with the utmost diligence to avoid the hatred of the most powerful."

Socialism vs Corporatism / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Lately many have characterized this administration as socialist, or having strong socialist leanings. I differ with this characterization. This is not to say Mr. Obama believes in free-markets by any means. On the contrary, he has done and said much that demonstrates his fundamental misunderstanding and hostility towards the truly free market. But a closer, honest examination of his policies and actions in office reveals that, much like the previous administration, he is very much a corporatist. This in many ways can be more insidious and worse than being an outright socialist.

The elitists steer the bureaucracy to do their bidding in an effort to increase the power of the machine, and this can go on for some time, which it has.
