Patriotism as a Threat to Capitalism / Politics / Social Issues

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article[From The Case for Legalizing Capitalism] - Having learned that the government acts in ways detrimental to its citizens economically, and by causing wars, we should ask exactly why we support our politicians, why we support most of our military operations, and why we support our very national identity. In short, we should ask ourselves why we are patriotic.

Socialism as a Reaction to State Corruption / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnders Mikkelsen writes: Ambrose Bierce defined politics as a "strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage." In the past many famous thinkers have noticed contemporary and historical examples of state corruption matching this definition, and these examples in turn were the inspiration for many a socialist thought.

The Poor and Socialism vs Capitalism / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKel Kelly writes: Socialists commonly cite the existence of the poor as a reason for socialism, and they claim that their concern for the poor shows compassion and morality. Since the topic of poverty is a key battleground in the war of socialism versus capitalism, it is relevant to examine what poverty is, how much of it exists in the United States, and how we can truly eliminate it.

Labour Day 2010, Economic Austerity, Public Services and the Labour Movement / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg Albo and Bryan Evans write: This Labour Day, like the last two, is dominated by the ongoing global economic crisis. Since 2008 Canada's workers, working families, and the communities in which we make our lives, have endured a period of deep economic insecurity the likes of which we have not seen since the Great Depression. The crisis began in the financial sector, amongst bankers, brokers, lawyers, and financial engineers of all sorts when the credit bubbles supporting the casino economy of derivatives, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and other financial instruments began to deflate.

Third World America: 'Fast-Tracking to Anarchy' / Politics / Social Issues

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy last post about Arianna Huffington's new book, Third World America: How Our Politicians are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream talked about the Great Recession, the Great Bailout, and the Great Cover-Up of financial crimes.

Among the future consequences of not fixing our national problems will likely be an increase in social unrest and an increase in crime. A look at Chicago's problems may serve as a call to action for America's middle class. Chicago's city budget is in dire straits. That's also true of the state of Illinois, California, New York and other areas. In Chicago, the same mismanagement that deepened our fiscal crisis has caused a crisis in essential city services.

Social Insecurity / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Cwik writes: Oh joy, oh joy! It has finally arrived! You wouldn't believe how excited I was to receive a letter from the Social Security Administration. In the letter, they dutifully showed me how much taxable income I have ever made. (Is it me, or is there something really creepy about that?) They showed me how much I have paid in taxes and how much my employer also "paid." Then they showed me how much my payment would be if I retire at full retirement (67 years old — not 62 or 65 like you may have heard) and if I delay "collecting" until I turn 70.

A Stinging Critique Of a Worker Bee / Politics / Social Issues

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA little while back, a Fed Economist by the name of Kartik Athreya, wrote a piece urging the public to only listen to economists who have PhDs from top level universities when searching for economic insights. Regarding other sources of macro-economic analysis, specifically bloggers, Mr. Athreya writes, “it is exceedingly unlikely that these authors have anything interesting to say about economic policy.”

2010: Humanity’s Choice As Foreseen by Rudolf Steiner / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was an Austrian philosopher and esotericist and founder of one of the key modern spiritual movements in the West. He is best known for his books and lectures before and after World War I, when he founded the Anthroposophical Society with its present-day headquarters in Dornach, Switzerland. After World War I, Steiner and his work were criticized viciously by right-wing nationalists in Germany, which caused him to give up his residence in Berlin. Among the critics was Adolf Hitler, who attacked him in print as a traitor to Germany for his efforts to promote peace.

Money is the Root of All Evil / Politics / Social Issues

By: Viresh_Amin

I just recently over heard the one line solution to all our problems: "Money is the root of all evil".

The way this sort of person talks, we should get rid of money all together. If that person picked up a book or two and started to read a little more he would properly state, "government money is the root of all evil".

Collapse in American Living Standards, More Poverty By Any Measure / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChristine Vestal writes: More than 15 million Americans are unemployed, homelessness has increased by 50 percent in some cities, and 38 million people are receiving food stamps, more than at any time in the program’s almost 50-year history.

Evidence of rising economic hardship is ample. There’s one commonly used standard for measuring it: the U.S. Census Bureau’s poverty rate. It guides much of federal and state spending aimed at helping those unable to make a decent living.

It should be so lucky. Abysses allow for falls into the deep unknown.
