By: Michael_T_Bucci

Washington to Start Taxing Securities Transactions? / Politics / US Politics

By: Tony_Sagami

Our budget deficit is skyrocketing, and it is only going to get bigger.

The Obama administration is ready to unleash another zillion-dollar stimulus plan. Oh, they won’t call it a stimulus plan, but make no mistake … a whole lot of taxpayer money is going to get spent (and borrowed).

Downsizing, Government Officials and Media Turning Against the Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven as calls for an UPRISING against the practices of the big banks are being made, something else has begun to happen: a DOWNRISING has begun with members of the industry, prominent financial media outlets, and government officials beginning to turn against the banks they have been supporting.

UK Postal Strike Heralds Battle Between Working Class and the Establishment / Politics / UK Politics

By: Submissions

John Pilger writes: The postal workers’ struggle is as vital for democracy as any national event in recent years. The campaign against them is part of a historic shift from the last vestiges of political democracy in Britain to a corporate world of insecurity and war. If the privateers running the Post Office are allowed to win, the regression that now touches all lives bar the wealthy will quicken its pace. A third of British children now live in low-income or impoverished families. One in five young people is denied hope of a decent job or education.

The Lost History Of Helmand Afghanistan / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdam Curtis writes: When you look at footage of the fighting in Helmand today everyone assumes it is being played out against an ancient background of villages and fields built over the centuries.

This is not true. If you look beyond the soldiers, and into the distance, what you are really seeing are the ruins of one of the biggest technological projects the United States has ever undertaken. Its aim was to use science to try and change the course of history and produce a modern utopia in Afghanistan. The city of Lashkar Gah was built by the Americans as a model planned city, and the hundreds of miles of canals that the Taliban now hide in were constructed by the same company that built the San Francisco Bay Bridge and Cape Canaveral.

Year After TARP, $700 Billion Flushed Down the Drain / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Randall_G_Holcombe

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Program, is a year old now. On September 19, 2008, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson announced the need for a $700 billion program to purchase toxic assets held by banks to prevent a financial meltdown, and after some modification Congress rapidly approved TARP on October 3. Looking back after a year, was TARP necessary? Did it work?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most remarkable aspects of the Obama Presidential agenda is how little anyone has questioned in the media or elsewhere why at all the United States Pentagon is committed to a military occupation of Afghanistan. There are two basic reasons, neither one of which can be admitted openly to the public at large.

How To Create A Fairer Tax Environment / Politics / US Politics

By: Steve_Selengut

Can lawmakers who don't have the courage or intelligence to outlaw texting while driving really be expected to create a saner tax structure? Hmmm.

Developing a fairer tax environment is much less an economics problem than it is a political dilemma and, as many of you observed, it is unlikely that anything "tax" will be improved upon until there is some serious facial (and cultural) change in Washington.

By: Mahdi_D_Nazemroaya

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince 1947, India has not fully pledged itself to any camp or global pole during the Cold War and as a result was a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement (N.A.M.). Since the post-Cold War era that position has eroded. New Delhi has been gradually moving away from its traditional position, relationships, and policies in the international arena for over a decade.
