By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the Illinois Constitution protects vested pension benefits, that promise, like all the state's obligations, is only as good as its ability to pay." -Crain's Chicago Business

"Illinois Enters a State of Insolvency" cried a January 18, 2010 headline from Crain's Chicago Business: "As Illinois' fiscal crisis deepens, the word 'bankruptcy' is creeping more and more into the public discourse."

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.

Funding Public Health Care With a Publicly Owned Bank, How Canada did it / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Ellen_Brown

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?

The new restraints on bank lending for speculation proposed yesterday by President Barack Obama follow the advice of former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker but will be much more credible if the president now fires Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and National Economic Council director Lawrence Summers.

How to Empower Shareholders and Improve Corporate Management in Two Easy Steps / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: wrote last week that Wall Street bonuses should be cut back by the shareholders, not by the government.

Well, a reader wrote back correctly to remind me that the majority of shareholders are institutions that would not want to antagonize major corporations that gave out fund management mandates for their pension funds and 401(k)s by agitating against top management bonuses.

Does the Massachusetts Massacre Mean Obama's Healthcare Plan is Dead? / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the wake of the Massachusetts massacre, inquiring minds are wondering "Is Healthcare Dead?"

That is certainly a good question given senator-elect Scott Brown's repeated statements he would be the 41st senator to reject it. However, that possibility needs to be balanced with the possibility the house accepts the senate version of the bill as is, or the house attempts a legislative move known as reconciliation (allowed only once per year).
