U.S. Government Confiscating Retirement Accounts / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Social Security System went into red ink mode this year. I predicted last January that this would happen. My video is here.

More money is now flowing out of the Social Security Administration to recipients than is flowing in through FICA taxes and interest payments to the SSA Trust Fund from the U.S. Treasury's general fund.

Why is the World Rushing Headlong into Environmental Armageddon? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dr_Tom_Termotto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there any doubt that planet Earth has been undergoing an environmental armageddon for decades?  We are not just referring to the spate of oil spills all over the world such as the BP Gulf Oil Spill, or the many other toxic deluges which go unreported unlike the Hungary Toxic Sludge Disaster, or the ongoing destruction of the world’s rainforests like those being systematically wiped out in the Amazon Basin.  We are also alluding to the “unseen” worldwide chemical apocalypse, the global proliferation of electro-pollution (EMR), the major uptick in man-made geopathic stress events on both the micro and macro levels, as well as the relentless contamination of living environments throughout the planet with radioactivity.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe view of the employment numbers for September gives the impression that the economy is improving. The private sector is adding jobs even as the government reduces employment as census workers end their assignments. Looking deeper, the employment situation faces new challenges from state and local governments dealing with their revenue short falls.

Has the Coalition Government Sunk the British Navy? / Politics / UK Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Margolis writes: PARIS – Britain’s mighty Royal Navy ruled the waves until World War II, fully 25% of the earth’s surface. There are few greater epochs in history than the stirring saga the Royal Navy, Britain’s famed "wooden walls."

As a boy, I thrilled to the glorious adventures of Britain’s sailors, such as Sir Francis Drake, the renowned admirals Anson and Howe, and the great Sir Horatio Nelson, whose name will live forever in naval glory.

U.S. Economic Recovery, Tax Cuts Won't Cut It / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongressional Republicans and Democrats are engaged in a heated debate over which Americans deserve not to have their taxes raised, with both claiming that some form of tax cut will stimulate the economy. The primary point of divergence is what type of cuts will be most likely to get Americans spending, and whether the wealthy will wastefully save their extra cash or use it to create jobs. This debate is academic. If a stronger economy (rather than pre-election posturing) is really the goal, then tax cuts alone will fail.

Wall Street and White House Blame Homeowners For Foreclosure Crisis / Politics / US Housing

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTom Eley writes: Wall Street has raised its voice against any government moratorium on foreclosures, even as evidence mounts that banks systematically and illegally falsified documents in order to expedite hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of foreclosures.

Documented examples of abuse include banks hiring contractors and what one Goldman Sachs executive referred to as “Burger King kids” to process thousands of foreclosure documents per week, all the while declaring to courts they were familiar with the cases. Lenders also falsified signatures, notary stamps, and tossed legal documents into the garbage. Every major bank is implicated in the widening scandal.

The Nobel Prize for Capitalism Awarded to Chinese Dissident Liu Xiaobo / Politics / China

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStephen Gowans writes: Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese dissident who was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, has been hailed as a champion of human rights and democracy. His jailing by Chinese authorities for inciting subversion of the state is widely regarded as an unjust stifling of advocacy rights by a Chinese state intolerant of dissent and hostile to ”universal values”. But what Western accounts have failed to mention is that Charter 08, the manifesto Liu had a hand in writing and whose signing led to his arrest, is more than a demand for political and civil liberties. It is a blueprint for making over China into a replica of US society and eliminating the last vestiges of the country’s socialism.

Foreclosuregate: Time to Break Up the Too-Big-to-Fail Banks? / Politics / US Housing

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLooming losses from the mortgage scandal dubbed “foreclosuregate” may qualify as the sort of systemic risk that, under the new financial reform bill, warrants the breakup of the too-big-to-fail banks. The Kanjorski amendment allows federal regulators to pre-emptively break up large financial institutions that—for any reason—pose a threat to U.S. financial or economic stability.

U.S. Plans To Seize Pakistan’s Nuclear Arsenal War Rumour / Politics / Pakistan

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo recent news items emanating from the United States have begun to reverberate in Pakistan and give rise to speculation that growing American drone strikes and NATO helicopter attacks in that country may be the harbingers of far broader actions: Nothing less than the expansion of the West’s war in Afghanistan into Pakistan with the ultimate goal of seizing the nation’s nuclear weapons.

End The FED and Get The Gold / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow can we end the Federal Reserve System? Prior to 2008, this question would have been entirely hypothetical. It is still entirely hypothetical, because the Federal Reserve System is in charge of monetary policy; the Congress of the United States is not. Certainly, the voters of the United States are not. Nevertheless, I wish to indulge myself in a completely hypothetical speculation. I wish it were less hypothetical than it is, but things are better than they were before 2008. "All hypothetical possibilities are equal, but some are more equal than others."

A Valuable Lesson: Education Must Pay Off for US / Politics / Educating Children

By: Barry_Elias

The United States spends more money per student than any country in the world: roughly $35,000 total for primary, secondary and tertiary education.

In 2006, the United States was ranked 32nd and 22nd in math and science, respectively, out of 52 countries. This was based on testing by the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) at the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD).

Financial Markets Tensions Rise as Global Policymakers Part Ways / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe tension out there is so thick you can cut it with a knife. I’m talking about the tension building between central bankers and policymakers in developed nations and their counterparts in so-called emerging market countries.

On the one hand, you have policymakers here, in Japan, and in England promising to print money until the cows come home. Their aim is to boost their faltering domestic economies and combat deflation.

China and the Future of Rare Earth Elements / Politics / Metals & Mining

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent diplomatic spat between China and Japan has heightened territorial tensions and called attention to China’s growing forcefulness with foreign powers. One of the more intriguing aspects of this development was China’s suspension of the export of “rare earth” elements (REE) to Japan. REE comprise 17 metallic elements with a variety of modern industrial and commercial applications ranging from petroleum refining to laptop computers to green energy applications to radar. China produces roughly 95 percent of the global supply of REE and Japan is the largest importer. China’s disruption of REE shipments to Japan has caused alarm among other importer countries, bringing new urgency to the search for new supplies and substitutes.

Democracy is Destroying the U.S. / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFaced with a horrible unemployment situation and many companies moving out of the US to countries such as China and India, many point the finger of blame at "globalism".  But companies aren't necessarily leaving the US just because it can be cheaper to operate in other regions.  The problem is much deeper and has more to do with companies escaping high taxation, ridiculous amounts of regulation and moving to regions that are growing as opposed to the US which is in a terrible state of disrepair and only getting worse.

Swiss Finish Sets New Standard for Global Bank Regulation / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleINCIDENT: The traditional Swiss finishing school taught young women etiquette and social graces, but international bank regulators are talking about something much tougher when they refer to a "Swiss finish" for global banks.

Just how tough became clear last week, 4 October, when a Swiss commission proposed that its two giant banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, be subjected to capital requirements of up to 19%, nearly three times as tough as the 7% capital-to-assets ratio recently suggested by the Basel Banking Committee as a minimum global standard.

Why Do We Give the Police and Courts the Benefit of the Doubt? / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeffrey_A_Tucker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been five years since the feds took aim at nasal decongestant. Under George Bush, a normal part of everyday civilized life became a criminal act, namely the over-the-counter purchase of Sudafed and many other products containing pseudoephedrine. You can get it now, but it is seriously rationed. You have to present your driver's license and no one without one may purchase it. The limits on quantities you are permitted to purchase fall far below the recommended dosage, and buyers rarely know when they are buying too much.

This is a strange development. President Obama, after all, has been working overtime to save capitalism. Wall Street is doing just fine and the rich are getting richer again. The financial reform bill passed by Congress was moderate, not radical.
