The Transformation of the US into a Police State / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePat Buchanan’s latest book, Suicide of a Superpower, raises the question whether America will survive to 2025. The question might strike some readers as unduly pessimistic and others as optimistic. It is unclear whether the US, as we have known it, will survive its next presidential election.

Mitt Romney's Plan to Replace Free Trade / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I've noted before, Mitt Romney has given some indications that he may be serious about doing something about America's trade mess. He's made tough statements about dealing with China which, if sincere, would not only put him beyond the other major Republican candidates on trade, but also far beyond what the Obama administration is doing.

Loss of National Identity / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Good Housekeeping? – An Op-Ed” - I am writing this article not as an economic or financial analyst, which is my normal mode of operation. This article has nothing to do with economic, financial markets, or any related topics. What it has to do with is the undeniable reality that we as a nation are failing miserably in one of the most basic precepts of civilization and that is to leave things better than we found them. When you think about it that is how true advancement takes place.

The Discipline of Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my article The Politics of Personal Destruction I presented the case that the Federal Reserve was responsible for the Great Depression because of its extremely tight monetary policy.

In 1963 Friedman, and coauthor Anna J. Schwartz, published A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960. In it, the authors claimed that the Great Depression would have been a typical downturn had it not been for policy errors made by the Federal Reserve. US Federal Reserve head Ben Bernanke also believes if the Fed had provided enough money to banks and bought US securities the Great Depression would not of happened.

OCCUPY WALL STREET: Separating Fact from Media / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Newspaper columnist Ann Coulter, spreading the lies of the extreme right wing, called the Occupy Wall Street protestors, “tattooed, body-pierced, sunken-chested 19-year-olds getting in fights with the police for fun.” She claimed the protestors, now in the thousands in New York, are “directionless losers [who] pose for cameras while uttering random liberal clichés lacking any reason or coherence.” (Several hundred thousand of these “directionless losers” are expected to attend rallies in more than 650 cities, Oct. 15.)

The Jobless, the Homeless, the Shiftless, Vive La Revolution! / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Occupy Wall Street movement is getting a fair amount of press. The movement, as you know, dear reader, is a loose assembly of the jobless, the homeless and the shiftless. Troublemakers, every one of them, with no coherent or sensible view of what is wrong or how to fix it. But what’s wrong with that?

Forcing Investment Advisors to “Identify” Suspected Terrorists  / Politics / Canada

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre Animal Rights Activists Terrorists?

Something which has created a stir in the alternative media [the derelict mainstream have long ceased reporting the news] in the past couple of days is a report concerning new steps being required of investment advisors in Canada relating to their KYC [Know Your Client] procedures.  This was first brought to my attention by Jeff Berwick [The Dollar Vigilante] and I’d advise everyone to read his piece on this here.  These new steps involve / require investment advisors to complete a questionnaire – prepared by a national regulatory body called FINTRAC – to help investment advisors “identify” suspected terrorists.

Although this bill isn't a slam-bang solution to the problem of foreign currency manipulation (especially by China), it's a big step in the right direction.

The European Crash Dummies Will Hit the Greek Brick Wall / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA crash dummy has some of the physical characteristics of a human being. It is used to test the safety of the interior of a car that has suffered a major accident. A pair of dummies are strapped into the front seat of a car that is on a track. Then the car is run into a wall at high speed. The engineers then examine what happened to the dummies. If the dummies had been human beings, would they have been killed? Dismembered?

Putin's New Vision of 'Eurasia' / Politics / Russia

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany western politicians have harbored deep suspicions of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Vladimorovich Putin since he first emerged on the Russian political stage in 1999.

This is hardly surprising, given his KGB background, though those with longer historical memories will recall that Yuri Andropov came from the same organization and that the West grudgingly found a way to work with him.

Ron Paul on U.S. State Assassinating American Citizens Sets Dangerous Precedent / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.

The US Empire: A Tragic Comedy in Three Acts / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

What a delight it is to have an empire!

Do the Swiss get to send out drones to kill people they don’t know in countries they’ve never been? No! The poor yodelers go around with long faces and visit their shrinks. Americans have troops in 170 countries. Where are the Swiss? Only in Switzerland and the Vatican. Alas, they will never know the joys of nation building and people murdering.

China Currency Bill: Politics vs. Economics, Is the U.S. ready for a global trade war? / Politics / US Politics

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest move on China politics at Washington is the China currency bill, due at the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Oct. 12.  The proposal would levy tariffs on China and four other Asian countries for artificially depressing the value of their currencies to boost their exports.

To us, it seems evident that those in Washington have not thought this through completely (or chose to ignore).  Here is how the math would work.

Electric Car Fairy Stories / Politics / US Auto's

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleErnst & Young reports, October 3, that 52% of its market analyst respondents think Europe will be the first mass market for electric vehicles, by 2022, while 39% say that dubious honour will go to China. Many are uncertain on the USA's rank in the EV boom, and often place the prospective US market  lower than Europe, China and Japan. About 37 % of Ernst & Young's respondents think that Japan, with its $12.7 trillion sovereign debt (but only $9 trillion according to the CIA) will strive to find new ways to drive up its debt with massive state subsidies to electric car builders, buyers, battery suppliers and all-comers to the EV spending party.

God, Gold, Groceries, and Guns / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wrote an article with this title on June 6, 1980 in my newsletter, Remnant Review. It is time for a follow-up.

The four G's seemed prudent in 1980. In early 1980, the American economy was suffering from the worst peacetime price inflation in its history. That was about to reverse due to the Federal Reserve's decision under Paul Volcker the previous August to reduce the rate of growth in money and let interest rates soar. This would lead to a recession.

Debt Deflation in Europe and America / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Without consumption, markets are going to shrink.Companies won’t invest, stores will close, “for rent” signs will spread on the main streets and local tax revenues will fall. Companies will lay off their employees and the economy will shrink more. Why aren’t economists talking about theseeffects of debt deflation, which are becoming the distinguishing phenomenon of our time?Theyadvocategiving more money to the banks, hoping that somehoweverything will be okay, as if the banks would lend out the money to fund new production and employment.Mainstream economics and political leaders in both parties are failing to askwhy the banks are using these giveaways to speculate abroad, pay their managers bonuses and high salaries or to pay dividends rather than to lend to small businesses or do other things to actually get the economy moving again. This phenomenon cannot be explained without seeing that debt service is siphoning off revenue into the financial sector, which is not recycling it back into the production-and-consumption economy.”

Eurozone Debt Crisis: Disruptions of Financial Markets Worldwide / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSaving the euro, the euro zone and the European Union obviously is far more important to Europe politician’s and their masters than any national interests.

After having lost seven elections in a row the Christian Democratic Union and their partners in Germany still voted 523 to 85 for an extension of money and power to the European Financial Stability Facility, the EFSF. We would say the yes voters stand a good chance of defeat at their next elections, especially when 75% of Germans were at odds with the vote. The big loser was the CDU partner’s, the Free Democratic Party that under the constitution must garner 5% of the vote to stay eligible. The power position of the CDU could well be in jeopardy.

United States versus China Round Two / Politics / Protectionism
