German Court Opens Door to Uber-Empire and Uber-Collapse / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the early days of September, financial markets worldwide were nervous. Investors and governments were waiting for a crucial ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, a ruling that could have triggered the imminent collapse of the world's second currency, the euro. This past Wednesday, the court ruled that the German bailout of Greece did not violate the German Basic Law (i.e. constitution), and investors breathed a collective sigh of relief.

9/11 Go To Heaven / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCeremonies in the USA and Europe, and in the few other regions and countries where 9/11 business is taken seriously have with time shifted focus. The annual show of gravitas and determination to fight and win the War on Terror, cranked up on the back of the New York and Washington attacks of September 2001 now has another target:  deflecting, parrying and diluting the scary future.

Obama's Jobs Plan Will Barely Dent Unemployment / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Even if passed intact, U.S. President Barack Obama's jobs plan, though ambitious, would at most nudge down unemployment by a single percentage point over the next year.

Furthermore, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives will surely object to several provisions in the American Jobs Act - particularly the total $447 billion price tag - further diluting its impact.

Obama Jobs Plan To Screw Future Generations / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday morning the Schuykill Expressway was jammed again due to an overturned car at Belmont Avenue. My first thought was how anyone could turn their car over at the usual 25 mph speeds on the Schuykill Expressway. My second thought was that I was damned to having to take the route from 69th Street in Upper Darby down Chestnut Street (aka The 30 Blocks of Squalor) to work. I was still steamed by Obama's $450 billion "JOBS" plan. His new plan was touted as an infrastructure plan when it is nothing but a "screw future generations" plan. Do these politicians have no shame?

The Economic Terror of 9/11 and What Really Happened / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we marked the 40th anniversary of the Federal Reserve Note being a completely unbacked fiat currency. This month marks another major event in the demise of the US dollar, September the 11th.

While we've been on a one way road to monetary ruin since at least 1913 the response to the events of September 11, 2001 have greatly accelerated the process.

Can Government Debt Crisis Lies Calm the Financial Markets? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe question of the day (for which everyone should know the answer) is Can Government Lies Calm the Markets?

In spite of the fact most of us realize lies will not help, and most often makes matters worse, governments repeatedly resort to lies, platitudes, and wishful thinking.

War – The Fiscal Stimulus of Last Resort / Politics / US Politics

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“War! Good God, ya’ll. What is it good for? Absolutely nothin’!”

So went the Bruce Springsteen pop hit of the 1980s, first produced as an anti-Vietnam War song in 1969. The song echoed popular sentiment. The Vietnam War ended. Then the Cold War ended. Yet military spending remains the government’s number one expenditure. When veterans’ benefits and other past military costs are factored in, half the government’s budget now goes to the military/industrial complex. Protesters have been trying to stop this juggernaut ever since the end of World War II, yet the war machine is more powerful and influential than ever.

Obama Jobs Plan is More of the Same / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough it was labeled and hyped as a "jobs plan," the new $447 billion initiative announced last night by President Obama is merely another government stimulus program in disguise. But semantics are of supreme importance in American politics...some could argue that word choice is the only thing that matters. As a result, despite the fact that this plan bears no substantive difference from previous stimulus bills, the President never once mentioned the word "stimulus" in his hour-long speech.

Obama's Job Numbers Don't Add Up / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_Elias

Nearly 32 months after taking the oath of office, President Obama implied his administration failed America during a speech to a joint session of Congress last night concerning jobs.

Despite his repeated claims as a candidate and president to focus on job growth as his number one priority, the president elected to wait until his next campaign to address this issue.

Europe Runs Out of Time, Impossible to Untangle, Breakup Inevitable / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the many interesting aspects of the Eurozone crisis is how many key political and central bank leaders fail see (or at least admit) that Europe is out of time.

Even more peculiar are statements by ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet who finally does realize time is of the essence, yet Trichet "solution" is a set of measures that must be passed by all 17 nations when those nations cannot agree on EFSF funding, on Eurobonds, on collateral for Greece, or even on whether a fiscal union or transfer union must take place.

A Raging Case of Bailout Fatigue / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Doug_Horning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Hornig, Casey Research writes: I’ve used the term outrage fatigue on numerous occasions in this forum as a way of trying to explain why there has been such a muted outcry from the general population as the tally of financial atrocities committed against American citizens has exploded.

August 22 was just another average day with another average headline that could easily have been ripped from some radical economic watchdog website (liberal or conservative, either one): Wall Street Aristocracy Got $1.2 Trillion from Fed.

Eurozone Deathwatch / Politics / Euro-Zone

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's no way to overstate the calamity that's unfolding across the Atlantic. The eurozone is imploding. The smart money has already fled EU banks for safe quarters in the US while political leaders frantically look for a way to prevent a seemingly-unavoidable meltdown. Here's an excerpt from a post at The Streetlight blog that explains what's going on:

Central Banks, BIS and Goldman Sachs Coercion / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDid you ever wonder why countries allow private central banks to issue their money? Somehow, missing in the self-governing status of governments is the courage to deny the seduction or the threats of the global banking cabal, over the control of a nation’s currency. How did this obvious usurpation of independence become an unquestioned acceptance by the very governments who proclaim to be sovereign nations? The answer reveals that the right of autonomous government is now dependent upon the approval of the banking cartel. The myth that a historic country can exert their populist will and financial self-determination, when it conflicts or opposes the interest and objectives of the moneychangers, is outright fantasy.

Don't Blame Bush: This is Obama's Economic Depression / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is Barack Obama's economy now. George Bush can no longer be blamed. And if the economy dips back into recession--as it most certainly will--then that will be Obama's fault, too. Because it's Obama's fiscal policies that are driving the economy back into the ditch. This is no small matter, because Obama's failure will likely result in political change that will deliver the White House to the GOP in 2012. Then the deficit hawks will control both houses of congress and the White House, and they will slash spending and push the economy into another Great Depression. This is not speculation. This WILL happen. Obama has made sure it will happen by shrugging off the warnings of every competent economist in the country, all of whom have said repeatedly that we needed more stimulus to lower employment, to reduce the output gap, to increase GDP, and to put the economy back on track.

Where’s Our Oil Price Collapse? / Politics / Crude Oil

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMake no mistake about it, without plentiful, cheap, and easy to access oil, the United States of America would descend into chaos and collapse. The fantasies painted by "green" energy dreamers only serve to divert the attention of the non critical thinking masses from the fact our sprawling suburban hyper technological society would come to a grinding halt in a matter of days without the 18 to 19 million barrels per day needed to run this ridiculous reality show. Delusional Americans think  the steaks, hot dogs and pomegranates in their grocery stores magically appear on the shelves, the thirty electronic gadgets that rule their lives are created out of thin air by elves and the gasoline they pump into their mammoth SUVs is their God given right. The situation was already critical in 2005 when the Hirsch Report concluded:

US Government versus World's Big Banks, Cascading Risks Multiply / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMake no mistake about it, history was made on September 2nd, 2011, after the financial markets closed in New York.  As Churchill said in 1942, "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."  What are the unintended consequences of the massive multi-billion-dollar lawsuit in which an independent US Government regulator is suing 17 big banks from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and France?  As we approach the 3rd anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers on 15th September, 2008, as a result of cascading risks, markets may yet demonstrate extreme volatility once again with fundamentally destabilising consequences.

Are Wall Street Banks Too Big To Blame For Subprime? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGoldman Sachs has historically been one of the more bullish investment houses on Wall Street, but the firm has recently taken a dark macro view.  The Wall Street Journal reported on Sept. 1 that Goldman issued a 54-page report sent to their institutional clients on August 16th arguing that as much as $1 trillion in capital may be needed to shore up European banks; that small businesses in the U.S., a past driver of job production, are still languishing; and that China’s growth may not be sustainable.
