Why The US Should Introduce VAT And Carbon Taxes Instead / Politics / Taxes

By: John_Mauldin

BY JOHN MAULDIN : Economists of pretty much every stripe will agree that a consumption tax has fewer negative effects than an income tax does. That’s because incentives matter.

If you want more of something, then tax it less; if you want less of something, tax it more. It’s about that simple.

Cutting US Income Taxes Will Blow Out The Budget / Politics / Taxes

By: John_Mauldin

BY JOHN MAULDIN : The cost of health care runs well over $1.1 trillion. Social Security is almost $1 trillion. Defense spending is $620 billion.

Entitlement programs for our nation’s seniors and low-income individuals and families run $550 billion. (That includes food stamps, disability, affordable housing, earned-income tax credits, childcare tax credits, and so on.)

Here’s Why Interstate Health Insurance Won’t Fix Obamacare / Trumpcare / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : Congress has a new healthcare plan to replace Obamacare. It may go nowhere since many Republicans aren’t happy with it… and the problems it tries to solve will remain.

Worse, anything that gets past the House and Senate may not matter if insurers refuse to play in 2018. The big ones haven’t committed yet.

China’s Biggest Limitations Determine the Future of East Asia / Politics / China

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : As we wrote about in “China’s Strategy,” East Asia is split into four parts: The Pacific archipelago, the Chinese mainland, the Korean Peninsula, and Indochina. East Asia holds the second and third largest world economies: China and Japan. The relationship between them and the US define modern East Asian geopolitics.

This is About So Much More Than Trump and Brexit / Politics / Religion

By: Harry_Dent

I’ve been writing a lot about what I see as the mega trend right now… and what will make this economic winter season different from the 1930s.

We’re not just seeing a classic debt and financial asset bubble that will unravel into a deflationary depression, as occurred in the 1930s and many times throughout history.

We’re not just seeing a populist revolution, as we saw with Hitler and Mussolini in the 1930s and World War II, and as has occurred about every 84 years throughout history.

Return of Sovereign France, Europe’s Changing Landscape / Politics / France

By: Dan_Steinbock

In France, President Hollande’s utter failure to foster broad consensus for structural reforms has paved the way for a contested election. While public debate focuses on Emmanuel Macron as the savior of France, the real story is that Marine Le Pen's agenda has shifted the French political landscape.

Before TV debates, the French presidential election featured 3-4 viable candidates, which together accounted for 85-90 percent of the total vote. Until recently, the leader of the Front National, Marine Le Pen, and the centrist Emmanuel Macron, have garnered about 25 percent in the polls, followed by the center-right François Fillon (20%), and the socialist Benoît Hamon (15%).

In Japan, Russia and China Find Common Ground / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

For the first time in three years, Russia and Japan have revived an avenue of negotiation that had stalled in the face of enduring tension between the two nations. Foreign and defense ministers from both countries met in Tokyo on Monday to hold 2+2 talks on security issues in the Asia-Pacific region. As expected, Japan took the opportunity to question Russia's recent attempts to bolster its defenses on the southern Kuril Islands, to which Tokyo has long laid claim. Russia fired back with its own objections to Japan's desire to build up its ballistic missile defenses as North Korea pushes ahead with its nuclear program.

Trump Watershed Budget / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

You have never seen an attempt to change direction in the Federal juggernaut, as outlined in the Trump budget to revamp discretionary spending. Bob Adelmann of The New American provides an apt appraisal in Trump’s “Blueprint” Budget Is a Policy Statement; Real Budget to Follow. For a full reading of this framework review the White House document. OMB Director Mick Mulvaney, has delivered a bold variation from the normal accommodation to the political careerists and influence peddlers.

Obamacare Healthcare Repeal or Obamacare 2.0? / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This Thursday, the House of Representatives will vote on a Republican bill that supposedly repeals Obamacare. However, the bill retains Obamacare's most destructive features.

That is not to say this legislation is entirely without merit. For example, the bill expands the amount individuals can contribute to a health savings account (HSA). HSAs allow individuals to save money tax-free to pay for routine medical expenses. By restoring individuals' control over healthcare dollars, HSAs remove the distortions introduced in the healthcare market by government policies encouraging over-reliance on third-party payers.

Why The Status Quo Is Under Increasing Attack By 'Populist People Power' / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gordon_T_Long

Protecting The Status Quo Is Failing

We need to fully appreciate yet another example of what the mainstream media doesn't yet get! The "People" increasingly don't see the system working for them anymore and have as consequence become much more willing to try something very different, possibly even extreme, depending on how serious their personal blight has become!

Scotland Independence Referendum 2.0? / Politics / Scotland

By: Stephen_Lendman

Ahead of Scotland’s September 2014 independence referendum, most UK and independent polls showed the outcome was too close to call.

In the run-up to the vote, pro-independence supporters gained strength. Some analysts believed enough to win. Instead they lost by a 55 - 45% margin.

The SNP have declared that their primary reason for demanding a second Independence referendum barely 2 years on from the last 'once in a lifetime' referendum was as a consequence of the UK intending to LEAVE the European Union including exiting the EU Single Market.

Angela Merkel in Washington / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Merkel’s meeting with Trump was strained at best, given his earlier disparaging remarks about her.

“What Merkel did to Germany is a shame,” he said. “It is sad, sad shame what’s happened to Germany.”

“I have friends in Germany. They want to leave…These are people that two years ago were telling me that it’s the greatest place on earth and now they want to leave.”

The Only Article You Need to Read to Understand the Trump Phenomenon / Politics / US Politics

By: Graham_Summers

The following is an attempt to explain the Trump phenomenon. It is NOT a pro-Trump article; it is simply an explanation for how Trump accomplished what he did, and why so few predicted his success and the impact of his economic policies.

There’s a simple reason so few people in the media and in finance understand the economic impacts of a Trump Presidency.

3 Maps That Explain Why Syria Raqqa Battle Will Drag On / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: STRATFOR

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND ERIC CZULEGER : The United States, Turkey, and Russia have deployed forces to fight against the Islamic State in a run-up to the final battle for Raqqa. But no one has made a definitive move.

We’ve touched on Syria before, but this is because the battle for the ISIS heartland is complicated by geography and conflicting interests of regional and international actors.

These three maps show the complexity of this battle and why it will be a marathon rather than a sprint.
