Spinning Unemployment Figures in a Collapsing U.S. Empire / Politics / Economic Statistics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported Friday that the economy gained only 103,000 new jobs in December--not enough to keep up with population growth--but the rate of unemployment (U.3) fell from 9.8% to 9.4%. If you are confused by the report, you are among the many.

The World Goes Crazy / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Bill_Bonner

“…with all the thought and good intentions that we provided…we achieved absolutely nothing. Nothing that I did and very little that old Ben [Strong, head of the US Federal Reserve] did…produced any good effect…or any effect at all. Except that we collected a lot of money from a lot of poor devils and gave it over to the four winds.”

Palin In the Crosshairs Following Arizona Shooting / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Sarah Palin, "the most dangerous person in America", is a free agent. In Arizona, nineteen people have been shot, six of them dead. There is no excuse for wanton murder. And there are no excuses for those who instigate it. There are no excuses for Palin and Company, Rupert Murdoch, FOXNews demagogues, paranoid-stricken conspiracy theorists, Gold standard fanatics or anti-social neoliberal street-corner market analysts cheering the elimination of private and government workers.

Highly Efficient Systems and Agonizing Death / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

"Not one has shown an iota of fear of death. They want to end this agony." - Jack Kevorkian

Perhaps what we need as a society is a better understanding of "efficiency", since it is such a key aspect of all complex systems. Take the human body, for example, which is perhaps the most complex life form that has evolved on Earth. After increasing specialization and inter-connection of various bodily components through millions of years of evolution, the systems of the human body have become extremely efficient at their specific functions. The arteries, veins and capillaries of the cardiovascular system have evolved an intricate fractal design that competently delivers oxygen and nutrients to all of the body's cells as necessary.

The Next Decade: Where We've Been... And Where We're Going / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article This book is about the relation between empire, republic, and the exercise of power in the next ten years. It is a more personal book than The Next 100 Years because I am addressing my greatest concern, which is that the power of the United States in the world will undermine the republic. I am not someone who shuns power. I understand that without power there can be no republic. But the question I raise is how the United States should behave in the world while exercising its power, and preserve the republic at the same time.

The United States Stuck in 2011 Catch 22 / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I began to think about what might happen in 2011, the classic Joseph Heller novel Catch 22 kept entering my mind. Am I sane for thinking such a thing, or am I so insane that asking this question proves that I'm too rational to even think such a thing?  In the novel, the "Catch 22" is that "anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy". Hence, pilots who request a fitness evaluation are sane, and therefore must fly in combat. At the same time, if an evaluation is not requested by the pilot, he will never receive one (i.e. they can never be found "insane"), meaning he must also fly in combat. Therefore, Catch-22 ensures that no pilot can ever be grounded for being insane - even if he were. The absurdity is captured in this passage:

On the Brink of Catastrophic Economic Collapse / Politics / US Politics

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe’ve been told a lot of things since the global economic crisis first became apparent in 2007. In March of that year Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, “the impact on the broader economy and financial markets of the problems in the sub-prime markets seems likely to be contained.” Clearly, Mr. Bernanke’s assessment was incorrect and the sub-prime real estate issues were only part of a broader, systemic issue.

Putin Prepares For War / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVladimir Putin is the most popular leader in the world today. His personal approval ratings are in the stratosphere, usually well-above 80 percent. He is admired for his quiet, confident manner and for having restored Russia to its former greatness following the chaotic breakup of the Soviet Union. The Russian people love Putin. Parents name their children after him, vodka and caviar producers use his name to boost sales, and his face appears on the tee-shirts of students and young people. It's unthinkable that he would step down after his term as prime minister is over a year from today. The Russian people want him to stay on and run for a third term as president, and that's probably what he'll do.

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article is an expansion of an article that I wrote years ago for my newsletter, Barry’s Bulls. I thought it to be an appropriate reprise as we end the year and reflect upon our circumstances. At the end of the day, we humans should value one blessing above all else - freedom. Freedom to think. Freedom to write. Freedom to communicate. Freedom to move about. Freedom to choose. Freedom to worship. Freedom to direct our own lives. What grants us this freedom?

U.S. Propaganda Ministers Pumping Out Jobs Recovery Propaganda / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe storyline being sold to the American public by the White House and the corporate mainstream media is that the economy is growing, jobs are being created, corporations are generating record profits, consumers are spending and all will be well in 2011. The 2% payroll tax cut, stolen from future generations to be spent in 2011, will jumpstart a sound economic recovery. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

Khodorkovsky's trip to the slammer, Justice Has Prevailed / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Vladimir Putin summed it up best when he said, "A thief should sit in jail." Right on. It doesn't matter if he is the richest man in the country or not. If he's done the crime, he's got to do the time. It's that simple.

On Wednesday, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former head of Yukos Oil was sentenced to 14 years in prison for embezzling and money laundering. Heads of state, human rights organisations, business leaders, and the entire western media have all protested on Khodorkovsky's behalf, but to no avail. Khodorkovsky will stay in prison where he belongs. Justice has prevailed.

The Federal Reserve: Stupid Bank Robbers or Robber “Hood” Barons: A Psychohistory Analysis / Politics / Central Banks

By: Katherine_Smith

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve (or “Fed”) is a “hot topic” on the Internet. However, it is my belief that I am the only one, who writes: “The Federal Reserve isn’t evil because they print our money and make us (the U.S. Taxpayers) pay interest on it. They are evil because, until October 2008, the Fed gave us a no-limit credit card that we used to buy houses, cars, RVs, TVs and DVDs—the “stuff” which, according to the GEO4, a massive United Nations Report, put the planet at the unknown points of no return.” [1]

We Can’t Let China Sway Our Energy Decisions / Politics / China

By: Barry_Elias

First U.S. Treasury bonds, now dysprosium.

China owns nearly $1 trillion of U.S. debt (approximately 7 percent of the nearly $14 trillion total). China also retains roughly $2.5 trillion in foreign-currency reserves, nearly all in U.S. dollars. They lend money to us so we can purchase their exports, which are more competitively priced than ours.
