"Shadow Lending" and the Financial Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat the tax package proves conclusively is that the President, the House and the Senate have absolutely no intention of getting their fiscal house in order. We will address the lurid details later. There is no change in the policies of borrowing continuously in order to sustain current consumption and to keep the economy from collapsing. As far as we are concerned the hold up in the package was to load it up with pork and stimulus. Some call it bells and whistles – we call it irresponsible. The Fed and all the players are buying time and 70% of the public knows that and they are going along with it. Very few want to face the music.

From Bush to Obama - America's Fiscal Collapse / Politics / US Debt

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat has been implemented under Obama is strong economic medicine with a “human face”. “Promise amid peril”. The stated priorities of the Obama economic package are health, education, renewable energy, investment in infrastructure and transporta­tion. “Quality education” is at the forefront. Obama has also promised to “make health care more affordable and accessible” for every American.

At first sight, the budget proposal had all the appearances of an expansionary program, a demand-oriented “Second New Deal” geared towards creating employment, rebuilding shattered social programs and reviving the real economy.

Another Record Breaking Winter, What Happened to Global Warming? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBritain and Europe have been hit hard for the third straight record-breaking winter season. Labeled by experts as the coldest winter in 100 years and set to blow well into 2011, it is already raising some very interesting questions about the new ideological split we are witnessing throughout society in the much celebrated green debate.

In Third World America, You Can't Buy a Ream of Paper on Minimum Wage / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2010, every one of my work-related conversations turned to personal wealth management. The money-class wants to preserve and increase their considerable wealth, and they are terrified of losing it. Elsewhere in America, those that don't have money are terrified of the rising cost of necessities like food and energy not captured in the consumer price index calculation.

The Legal Fiction of Corporate Income and the Coming U.S. Tax Reorganization in 2012 / Politics / Taxes

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets and pundits are celebrating the great tax deal “compromise” between the Obama Administration and the Republicans. A tax deal pitched as a compromise between the two-party duopoly that has been selling the United States into debt slavery for decades is not likely in the best interest of the country, or your bank account. The deal strikes me as a bit like a two-year-old eating homemade ice cream for the first time, believing it is the greatest possible pleasure on earth, with no earthly idea of how it stacks up against a honeymoon.

Why the U.S. Gigantic Intelligence Apparatus Is a Mega Fraud / Politics / Government Spending

By: Robert_Higgs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn July 19, 2010, the Washington Post published the first of three large reports by Dana Priest and William M. Arkin on the dimensions of the gigantic US apparatus of "intelligence" activities being undertaken to combat terrorist acts against the United States, such as the 9/11 attacks. To say that this activity amounts to mobilizing every police officer in the country to stop street fights in Camden only begins to suggest its almost-unbelievable disproportion to the alleged threat.

Still, despite the progress, currency valuations and trade tariffs will continue to be a fixture of both countries' foreign policies.

European Nanny State Blames Germany for Debt Crisis / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Europe, a big finger-pointing escapade is is full swing. Those looking for scapegoats for what ails the Eurozone have found a convenient target in German Chancellor Angela Merkel for refusing to cooperate in resolving the European sovereign debt crisis. Merkel is accused of anything and everything including being "extraordinarily lazy" as well as for "taking Germany to the brink".

Yet, as Greece smolders in riots and firebombs over various austerity measures, pretty speeches, untenable pledges regarding haircuts, and continual bickering remain the only action items of note coming from Europe.

What if Wikileaks is PSYOP? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Mr. F. William Engdahl has contributed a controversial opinion about the Wikileaks phenomena and it deserves reading and remembering [1]. No one can prove or disprove the legitimacy of any leaked document since its original author is undisclosed. Furthermore, as it now stands, the actual "source" (person) behind a document can no longer uphold or refute his or her own leaked words publicly without the risk of facing charges by Washington and the U.S. Military. Equally disturbing is the world media - self-proclaimed champions of high journalistic standards and integrity. The world media never asked the critical question: Are these cables authentic?

What the State Fears Most: Information / Politics / US Politics

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistory tells a cyclical story of man versus state: man persistently creating new ideas and the state tirelessly laboring to destroy them. Bureaucracy has never been a friend to the ideas that undermine its artificial legitimacy.

All too often, history provides us with examples of state-enforced book burnings and other forms of extreme censorship. Many of us today take our so-called freedom of speech for granted, and few realize just how pervasive government censorship remains. It is true that not many of us living today in the industrially advanced world have experienced the worst kinds of censorship[1] — few have memories, for example, of the Nazi book burnings that took place throughout the 1930s, which claimed over 18,000 works.

Taking Stock of WikiLeaks / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJulian Assange has declared that geopolitics will be separated into pre-“Cablegate” and post-“Cablegate” eras. That was a bold claim. However, given the intense interest that the leaks produced, it is a claim that ought to be carefully considered. Several weeks have passed since the first of the diplomatic cables were released, and it is time now to address the following questions: First, how significant were the leaks? Second, how could they have happened? Third, was their release a crime? Fourth, what were their consequences? Finally, and most important, is the WikiLeaks premise that releasing government secrets is a healthy and appropriate act a tenable position?
