Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver 200 years ago, Thomas Paine wrote a treatise on government in which he said "a republic is supposed to be directed by certain fundamental principles of right and justice, from which there cannot, because there ought not to, be any deviation. (It) is executed by a select number of persons, who act as representatives, and in behalf of the whole, and who are supposed to (govern) as the people would do were they all assembled together....

Impending U.S. Economic Collapse And Death Of Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePoliticians worship money and power. Every politician worth his salt secretly aspires to be a dictator, although they dare not admit this as it is not exactly politically correct. The ultimate goal of the consummate politician is to have absolute power, and be able to boss everyone else about, to have unlimited access to public funds for the purposes of profligate personal consumption and more importantly self aggrandizement, as well as to bribe and reward supporters, and to kill or otherwise neutralize anyone who disagrees or creates any opposition.

The New American Century: Cut Short By 92 Years / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica's time as a superpower is coming to an end. The financial crisis was just the last straw. Whatever good faith was left after the invasion of Iraq, the shrugging off of international treaties and the shameless disregard for human rights, is now gone. The United States has polluted the global economic system with worthless mortgage-backed securities and, by doing so, has pushed 6 billion people closer to a long and painful recession. That's not something that can be easily forgiven.

Keyser Soze Heists Main Street Out of $700 Billion / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe greatest heist in history took place on Friday when congress was CONNED into signing away $700 billion accompanied by SOME $120 billion of pork.

The Usual Suspects, Paulson, Bernanke and Cox (the Chair of SEC) over the last 10 days have proceeded to spin their verbal scare story to both the Democrats and Republicans into joining forces to hand over a ransom of $700 billion in the form of a blank check to the aid bankrupt banks to off load losses onto the US tax payer.

Bailout Plan WIll Fail due to Flawed Understanding of the Financial Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are being told loudly and repeatedly that the gargantuan mortgage bail-out package is necessary because illiquid mortgage-backed securities are clogging our financial arteries, threatening the economic equivalent of cardiac arrest. The idea of the plan is to transfer these supposedly valuable, but currently unmarketable, assets to the government so that private institutions can freely lend once more. The monumental flaw in this argument is that the mortgage backed securities are in fact highly liquid, just not at the prices the owners would like to receive. Read full article...

$700 Billion Bailout Package a Necessary Evil / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYears from now conspiracy theorists will no doubt contend that the historic $700 billion 2008 bailout package came about because the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury wanted to further cement their control over the U.S. economy and government.  Focusing on Bernanke and Paulson's apocalyptic words leading up to the bailout vote, not to mention some anti-Fed writings from Thomas Jefferson, conspiracy theorists will note how powerful men scared Congressmen into adopting their plan, how the rules of the financial game were changed to help Wall Street, and how the American public, once again, saw their hard earned dollars stolen from them. Needless to say, what the conspiracy theorists will be doing is giving Bernanke and Paulson far more credit than they deserve. Read full article... Read full article...

Senate Bailout Bill Will Fail US Taxpayers / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: My sister lives in a landmark building in Coral Gables, Fla. There was a fire in one apartment in the building. After that fire was brought under control, the fire department - for some unknown reason - dropped a hose in the burned apartment, and left the water running … for hours.

That inane maneuver destroyed many apartments, crippled the building's infrastructure and resulted in the building being temporarily condemned. The entire building was closed down for many months. Every person who lived there had to relocate. My sister, fortunately, had the wherewithal to take up temporary residence in the world-famous Biltmore Hotel .

Bailout Bill Marks the End of America as We Know It? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOCTOBER 1, 2008—Tonight the Senate passed the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill by a vote of 74-25. This follows the rejection of the bill by the House on Monday. In an MSNBC poll, 62 percent of Americans oppose the giveaway, but the lobbyists are doing everything possible to assure the rejection is overturned. According to Bob Borosage, co-director of The Campaign for America 's Future, House leaders “are bringing in the small business lobby and the banking lobby to buy the twelve Republican votes they need.”

Europe Puts Pressure on Bush to Pass Bailout Plan / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Bloomberg is reporting Trichet Says U.S. Must Pass Plan to Rescue `Global Finance'
European Central Bank President Jean- Claude Trichet said U.S. lawmakers must pass a $700 billion rescue package for banks to shore up confidence in the global financial system.

"It has to go, for the sake of the U.S. and for the sake of global finance," Trichet said in an interview in Frankfurt with Bloomberg Television late yesterday. "I am confident, but of course it is the decision of the U.S. Congress."

The Political Nature of the Credit Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClassical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo referred to their discipline as “political economy.” Smith's great work, “The Wealth of Nations,” was written by the man who held the chair in moral philosophy at the University of Glasgow. This did not seem odd at the time and is not odd now. Economics is not a freestanding discipline, regardless of how it is regarded today. It is a discipline that can only be understood when linked to politics, since the wealth of a nation rests on both these foundations, and it can best be understood by someone who approaches it from a moral standpoint, since economics makes significant assumptions about both human nature and proper behavior.

Why the Bailout Vote Failed / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Walter_Brasch

The Republican leaders of the House of Representatives grabbed a half dozen bags of sincerity, looked directly into every TV camera they could find, and lied. The House had just defeated, 228–205, a bipartisan $700 billion bailout bill. But it was the Democrats who were the subject of vicious rhetoric.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDateline Washington, October 19th (get it?) 2010: the Peoples Bank & Trust of America has now established itself as the only bank of any kind in the USA, totally owned and managed by the US House of Representatives.
