BP Gulf Oil Well Cap, Pressure At The Wellhead And What It Really Means / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dr_Tom_Termotto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBP and the Coast Guard are watching the pressure at the wellhead very, very closely because of what it will mean for the future prospects of this well. Pressure readings under a critical threshold usually mean that there may be leaking elsewhere in the system. If there is a single leak, it will be more easily diagnosed and remedied depending on where it is. If there is more than one leak present, a whole set of different challenges emerges. Most importantly, keeping the system under pressure, when leaks exist anywhere, will inevitably increase the potential for those leaks to worsen.

The Theft of the American Dream / Politics / US Politics

By: Jesse

America must decide what type of country it wishes to be, and then conform public and foreign policy to those ends, and not the other way around. Politicians have no right to subjugate the constitutional process of government to any foreign organization.

Secrecy, except in very select military matters, is repugnant to the health of a democratic government, and is almost always a means to conceal a fraud. Corporations are not people, and do not have the rights of individuals as such.

The Food Bubble, How Wall Street Starved Millions and Got Away With It / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $550 million to resolve a civil fraud lawsuit filed by the SEC, Goldman has not been held accountable for many of its other questionable investment practices. A new article in Harper’s Magazine examines the role Goldman played in the food crisis of 2008 when the ranks of the world’s hungry increased by 250 million. We speak to Harper’s contributing editor Frederick Kaufman.

Federal Reserve Printing Masses of Worthless Paper / Politics / US Politics

By: Fred_Sheehan

We wince at congressional ineptitude but in one category legislative aptitude is improving: propaganda. The on-again, off-again finance bill (it's on-again) was described by the Wall Street Journal as "the most extensive remapping of financial regulation since the 1930s." It is nothing of the kind.

Don't Listen to Glenn Beck's NeoConservative Propaganda / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThomas J. DiLorenzo writes: I’ve been occasionally watching Glenn Beck on the Fox News Channel and think he has done an admirable job of smoking out and identifying the shockingly hardcore, radical socialists who dominate the Obama administration. He has also done a generally good job talking about the libertarian founding principles of America, how they have been lost, and our duty to regain them. But he has been absolutely abysmal when discussing the subject of Lincoln, the War to Prevent Southern Independence, and its legacy.

Guilty of Market Manipulation CEO of IKB Bank, Did Goldman Sachs Commit Fraud? / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial news media is abuzz with analyses of Goldman Sachs's settlement with the SEC for $550 million in a case of alleged fraud regarding the packaging and selling of a CDO called Abacus. Goldman Sachs admitted to no wrong-doing. The settlement is less than Tiger Wood's potential $700 million divorce settlement--and Tiger didn't help bring the economy to its knees (he also publicly admitted his transgressions and expressed regret)--but it's a start.

As young children, we see the world with fresh eyes and wonderment, and then quickly begin testing the physical and societal bounds as part of morphing into our more mature selves.

Banking Industry Crisis, INSIDE JOB The Movie / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Bob_Kirtley

Having a day out in the big city of Auckland with an old Buddie who is an accountant, we decided to paint the town red and so we went to the Auckland Film Festival to catch a couple of movies one of which is entitled ‘Inside Job

Its an all star cast which includes, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama along with the usual suspects Bernanke and Geithner, some eminent Professors of Colombia and Harvard University who did not cover themselves in glory and the rating agencies who failed miserably in their assessments of the banking industry.

James K. Galbraith Says The Financial System Must Be Reformed / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough I differ considerably from Mr. Galbraith's conclusion that government must take on a larger role financing the reconstruction through the active allocation of capital, I cannot fault his call for a serious reform of the financial system as the sine qua non for a sustainable recovery. Why substitute one version of financial engineering by corrupt politicians for another?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: "You don't know whether to commit suicide or just go on living and working," Eugene Sukup told the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.

Sukup is an 81-year-old maker of grain bins in Sheffield, Iowa. If he dies this year, his death tax will be zero. If he dies after December 31 this year, his death tax could be more than $15 million.

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.

U.S. Senate Financial Reform Too Little, Too Late To Prevent System Crash Again? / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs Anyone Really Capable Of Fixing Our Many Deeper Crises?

Progress is, as we have seen, “stalled” in Haiti six months after an earthquake that struck with the impact of a nuclear bomb. A country, we are told, that is trapped in its past actually may exemplify a more frightening future---a world whose institutions, agencies, governments and corporations are sinking in a swamp of their own making, unable and perhaps unwilling to repair catastrophic crises that are morphing into each other.

The Disappearing Intellectual in the Age of Economic Darwinism / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHenry A. Giroux writes: We live at a time that might be appropriately called the age of the disappearing intellectual, a disappearance that marks with disgrace a particularly dangerous period in American history. While there are plenty of talking heads spewing lies, insults and nonsense in the various media, it would be wrong to suggest that these right-wing populist are intellectuals. They are neither knowledgeable nor self-reflective, but largely ideological hacks catering to the worst impulses in American society. Some obvious examples would include John Stossel calling for the repeal of that "section of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that bans discrimination in public places."[1] And, of course, there are the more famous corporate-owned talking heads such as Glenn Beck, Charles Krauthammer, Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh, all of whom trade in reactionary world views, ignorance, ideological travesties and outlandish misrepresentations - all the while wrapping themselves in the populist creed of speaking for everyday Americans.

Galveston’s Alternate Plan Offers Insight into U.S. Social Security’s Problems / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have devoted a number of my recent columns to the problems with Social Security and many state pension plans. And in one particular article, I also told you how the Amish have used a little known provision to opt out of the entire system.

Today, I want to talk about another group of people who took their retirements into their own hands back in the early 1980s — the employees of three counties in Texas (first and most famously, Galveston, but also Brazoria and Matagorda).

Russian Spies and Strategic Intelligence / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States has captured a group of Russian spies and exchanged them for four individuals held by the Russians on espionage charges. The way the media has reported on the issue falls into three groups:

  • That the Cold War is back,
  • That, given that the Cold War is over, the point of such outmoded intelligence operations is questionable,
  • And that the Russian spy ring was spending its time aimlessly nosing around in think tanks and open meetings in an archaic and incompetent effort.

Chris Whalen Calls for Reforms, But Gives Crony Capitalism and the Neo-Liberals a Rewrite / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI enjoy Chris Whalen of the Institutional Risk Analyst. His outlook and perspective are generally well-informed and well to the point, fresh and practical.

In his most recent essay titled Building a New American Political Economy, excerpted below, he spends quite a few words in taking Paul Krugman and the stimulus crowd to task, or more accurately, out to the woodshed for what we used to call a 'proper thrashing.'
