Sun Down On Green Energy / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe message nailed high on the greasy pole of Great Causes, by small and failing politicians in the 2006-2010 period was that green energy transition is urgent because climate catastrophe is certain unless we cut CO2 emissions by huge amounts, fast. Behind the scenes and off the teleprompters, the real concern of oil at $130 a barrel (the Goldman Sachs nice price for 2012) also powerfully drove the elite stampede for cranking up green energy.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince immaterial money is based on nothing but confidence, a loss of confidence is, unquestionably, the biggest risk to the survival of any paper money system. – Detlev Schlichter, Paper Money Collapse

International Business - Davos Style / Politics / Financial Markets 2012

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first lesson of international business is that the monopolies that drive the commercial trading system only hold loyalty to the god of capital. Making money means retaining a profit on trading transactions of business companies. The notion of MAKING MONEY means something very different to the financial empires that speculate on currencies, commodities, bonds and equities. When the two worlds come together to celebrate the common interest of their pirate culture, the Davos port of call, is a necessary winter holiday.

Decline of U.S. Economy is the Logical Outcome of Keynesian Economics / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Ron_Hera

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Unholy Alliance of John Maynard Keyne

Perhaps the greatest modern champion of central economic planning was the 20th century English economist John Maynard Keynes.  Keynes, who was a political socialist and for a time a central banker, advocated the idea that the government should play a large, active role in the economy.  Among the consequences of Keynes’ economic theories, whether intended or unintended, is the fact that Western economies today are characterized by large, central governments, central banks and massive debts.

Official Currency Counterfeiters Run the World / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in 1969, a Disney cartoonist sat down at his story board and produced a booklet that the Disney organization never saw: The Official Counterfeiter. It was a presentation of fractional reserve banking and the role of the Federal Reserve System.

His name was Vic Lockman. As far as I know, he was the first cartoonist ever to do a booklet based on the Austrian theory of the business cycle. He revised the booklet in 1974. It is now back online.

Is Deepwater Horizon the New Ecuador? / Politics / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Nearly two years after the worst accidental offshore oil spill in the history of the energy industry, some of the biggest companies in the world are busy pointing their legal fingers at one another in court over who has to pay what in claims, damages and fines over the deadly Deepwater Horizon oil spill. A federal judge this week ruled that BP is still obligated to a clause in its contract with Transocean that would protect the rig owner from damages related to the spill. That means BP still has to shell out money to settle claims filed by those along the southern U.S. coast impacted by the spill. BP, meanwhile, is suing Halliburton, something Halliburton said was ridiculous. If the legal mess over Chevron's case involving Ecuador is any indication, former BP boss Tony Hayward will be pushing 80 before this gets settled.

Germany's Role in Europe and the European Debt Crisis / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe German government proposed last week that a European commissioner be appointed to supplant the Greek government. While phrasing the German proposal this way might seem extreme, it is not unreasonable. Under the German proposal, this commissioner would hold power over the Greek national budget and taxation. Since the European Central Bank already controls the Greek currency, the euro, this would effectively transfer control of the Greek government to the European Union, since whoever controls a country's government expenditures, tax rates and monetary policy effectively controls that country. The German proposal therefore would suspend Greek sovereignty and the democratic process as the price of financial aid to Greece.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTaking the title from a recent Guardian article, Jan Skoyles looks at the arguments made by Thomas Frank, in his new book ‘Pity the Billionaire’ , against the Republican  nominees’ demands for less regulation. Mr Frank believes that the on-going financial crisis demonstrated the need for more regulation.

Iran, Gold and Oil - The Next Banksters War / Politics / Middle East

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRemember the real reason why Moammar Gadhafi is dead. He dared to propose and started creating an alternative currency to the world reserve U.S. Dollar. The lesson learned in Libya is now ready for teaching in Iran. Forget all the noise about going nuclear, the true message is that the banksters rule and nation states serve their ultimate masters. The hype and disinformation that surrounds the push for war is best understood by examining the viewpoint of Iranian MP Kazem Jalali. The Tehran Times quotes him in saying,

How the Banks Broke the Social Compact, Promoting their Own Special Interests / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_Hudson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBanks Weren’t Meant to Be Like This.  What will their future be – and what is the government’s proper financial role?

The inherently symbiotic relationship between banks and governments recently has been reversed. In medieval times, wealthy bankers lent to kings and princes as their major customers. But now it is the banks that are needy, relying on governments for funding – capped by the post-2008 bailouts to save them from going bankrupt from their bad private-sector loans and gambles.

Fighting Financial Fraud, Remember Rousseau, Property Rights and Human Rights Are Still At War / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe conflict between property rights and human rights has entered a new chapter. It is a debate that goes back to the challenge by landowners and merchants behind the American Revolution’s war on British control over the colonial economy.

Only today, as those speaking in the name of the 99% challenge the super wealthy of the 1% (actually the .001 %) there is a new battleground in what’s known as the housing market with as many as 14 million Americans in or facing foreclosure.
