Europe and America are Financially Burning / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets are what they are today because that is the way government wants them. The stock market has stayed up for quite some time, but the best earnings are fading. The Street is well aware of what has been happening for a number of years. They just do not say anything and go along with the program. They have come to overlook situations worldwide as well as in America, because they believe that, “The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets” won’t let the market fall.

Memo to Obama: "Create More Jobs or Resign" / Politics / Employment

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Abysmal".

That's the only way to describe Friday's job's report. The whole thing stunk. And, on top of that, the unemployment rate has been heading higher for the last 3 months. It's now at 9.2 percent a full two years into the recovery. That's unprecedented. Where are the jobs, that's what everyone wants to know.

Politicians Repeating Public Proclamations & Denouncements of Early-1930s / Politics / Economic Depression

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of the monetary woes that have spread across the globe, I thought I’d demonstrate that the continuing montage of oratory acrobatics coming from our politicians are not a new thing. Here, I show a few examples of the demagogic proclamations that emerged during the early-1930s.

Run on U.S. Government is Coming / Politics / US Debt

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA run is a mass withdrawal of cash funds from a borrower. We are in the midst of a continuing worldwide credit crisis, punctuated by "runs" of varying prominence and publicity.

These runs are rational, not panics and not due to quirks of psychology. They occur when investors realize that their funds are endangered in an institution. They try to get them out before they lose them.

Competing Currencies - A Defense Against Profligate Government Spending / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The end of June marked what is hopefully the end of the Federal Reserve's policy of quantitative easing. For months the Fed has purchased hundreds of billions of dollars of Treasury debt, enabling the government to fund its profligate deficit spending, push the national debt to its limit, and further devalue the dollar. Confidence in the dollar is plummeting, confidence in the euro has been shattered by the European bond crisis, and beleaguered consumers and investors are slowly but surely awakening to the fact that government-issued currencies do not hold their value.

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the past three decades the Islamic Republic of Iran has developed a well-earned sense of paranoia. First, in September 1980 Saddam Hussein invaded Iran in what he thought would be a quick military victory, but which quickly turned into an eight-year bloody slugfest, leaving an estimated 500,000-1,000,000 dead before the guns fell silent.

South Africa’s Cancer Of Corruption And ‘Culture Of Concealment’ / Politics / Africa

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA: Twenty one years after Nelson Mandela walked free,  corruption has become the issue du jour in South Africa.

Even president Jacob Zuma who narrowly slithered out of a corruption trial before his election is blasting corruption in the ranks of the African National Congress which came to power as the morally superior alternative to an apartheid regime that shamelessly used the wealth it controlled to benefit Afrikaners and deprive the black majority of services.

Mounting U.S. Public Debt Prompting Looting of Pensions, Social Security and Medicare / Politics / US Debt

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGovernment debt will be in the vicinity of $1.5 trillion this year. Ever since May 16th short-term debt has been frozen at about $14.3 trillion. Up until May 16th the year-to-debt fiscal debt was $783.135 billion.

U.S. Committing Imperial Suicide / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe always take my car ‘cause it’s never been beat.
And we ain’t missed yet with the girls we meet. ~ The Beach Boys

We are sitting in our favorite café in Paris…listening to the Beach Boys and reflecting on the decline of the US Empire. Back in the ’60s, the Beach Boys celebrated a country that was young, growing, optimistic…and a winner. Now, what we see is the whole kit-and-kaboodle of life in the US giving way to desperation, delusion and an irresistible impulse to commit imperial suicide. The economy turns sour. The military becomes malignant. Households are corrupt, bankrupt and dependent. Even the churches sing their hallelujahs to Caesar now.

The Coming U.S. Federal Collapse / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Gary North has noted, the great 21st century default of the U.S. government has already started, with the raiding of federal pension funds to stay solvent a few months ago. We may recall the 2000 presidential election, when Al Gore spoke favorably about creating a social security "lockbox," even as Social Security "taxes" had been treated for years as a core part of the federal budget, simple annual "income" for the state.

Murdoch Heads for a Fall / Politics / Mainstream Media

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBoy, this is about as sleazy as it gets....

Imagine that your 13-year old daughter has been kidnapped and you have no idea where she is. So you frantically call her cell phone over and over clinging to the faint hope that she might still be alive. And, then, a miracle happens; you notice that messages on her phone have been deleted signalling that she's still alive but unable to call back.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Negotiations, Don't be Fooled by Political Posturing / Politics / US Debt

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs attention focuses intently on the negotiations to raise the debt ceiling, House Republicans have made a great show of drawing a line in the fiscal sand. They claim that they will not vote for any deal that includes tax increases to narrow the budget deficit. But we all know how the game works in Washington. With the 2012 elections looming the Republican bluster is merely a bargaining chip that they will quickly toss into the pot when they sense a political victory. In fact there are signs that such a compromise is already underway.

Egypt vs IMF: Time to Debt Default? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Eric_Walberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial flip-flop of Egypt’s revolutionary government, first requesting and then declining a $3 billion dollar IMF loan, highlights Egypt’s hard choices at this point in the revolution, but is a good sign.

It is no secret that Egypt has put all its faith in the US and Western international institutions since the days of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, contracting a huge foreign debt, a process that was increasingly corrupt, despite being careful watched over by those very agencies. This debt is financed by foreign banks, and must be repaid in dollars -- with interest. If much of the money they create and then “lend” is siphoned off into Swiss bank accounts, that is Egypt’s problem. No one is trying to charge the people who gave Mubarak or his henchmen their money and then let them re-deposit it with them, but it takes two to tango.

Despite Fukushima, Russia's Nuclear Industry is Open for Business / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

Japan's 11 March catastrophe at its six-reactor Daichi Fukushima nuclear power complex has had global repercussions, hardly surprising given the trillions of dollars invested in civilian nuclear energy over the last five decades. Ironically, just a year ago the nuclear power industry saw itself on the verge of a renaissance, with worldwide concerns about global warming causing many to reconsider the merits of nuclear energy, which produces no greenhouse gases.

Tax Rises Could Save the U.S. Economy From Debt Default Bankruptcy / Politics / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: As the debt-ceiling debate escalates, U.S President Barack Obama says federal tax increases are necessary to close the U.S. budget deficit.

Although Republicans then said that tax hikes were "off the table," this statement is reminiscent of a toddler who threatens to hold his breath until he turns blue if you make him eat spinach.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt feels like 1979 all over again: the US, European and Japanese economies are in the doldrums, gold and oil prices are high and rising, friendly Middle East and Arab dictators are falling. In the White House things are also in flashback: the charismatic new Democrat preaching clean energy and climate catastrophe mantras is as unsuccessful as Jimmy Carter at winning the public around.    Can Obama succeed where Carter did not?

Piracy: A Growing Global Menace / Politics / Global Economy

By: OilPrice_Com

Over the last few years, thanks largely to Hollywood's "pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, maritime buccaneers have acquired a highly romantic image.

The reality of modern piracy is far removed from the images peddled by Tinseltown. In the most recent nautical attack, Somali pirates on 6 July attacked the 900-foot Brillante Virtuoso, which was carrying over 141,000 tons of fuel oil from Ukraine to Qingdao, China, 20 miles off the Yemeni port of Aden. The vessel's 26 crew members abandoned ship after the attackers fired an RPG round into their sleeping quarters.

The Political Tide Against the Ratings Agencies / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bane of our pseudo-capitalistic system is the blatant double standard that is upheld with respect to prices. If the money prices of things go up, that’s ok, and the saint behind this wholesome circumstance is typically elevated to greatness. However, if the money prices of things go down, there’s got to be a bad guy somewhere — and boy does he get hanged, drawn and quartered in the town square.
