Busted Governments, Pensions and Unions / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are seeing the end of an era. The trade union movement in the United States has declined for the last 30 years. It is now in its final stages. The only area of the economy in which unions still have any degree of clout is in government. The union movement barely functions outside of government employment. Today, as states and municipalities face massive deficits, the union movement is threatened with destruction.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy are members of the western media saying that an Iranian ship is on its way to Gaza? Is it just an innocent mistake or is there something more sinister involved?

The Kyrgyzstan Crisis and the Russian Dilemma / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter Zeihan writes: STRATFOR often discusses how Russia is on a bit of a roll. The U.S. distraction in the Middle East has offered Russia a golden opportunity to re-establish its spheres of influence in the region, steadily expanding the Russian zone of control into a shape that is eerily reminiscent of the old Soviet Union. Since 2005, when this process began, Russia has clearly reasserted itself as the dominant power in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Ukraine, and has intimidated places like Georgia and Turkmenistan into a sort of silent acquiescence.

The Criminal Legacy of Alan Greenspan / Politics / Central Banks

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRyan McMaken writes: For those of us who were mere economics undergraduates in the 1990's, Alan Greenspan was rather like a god. Admittedly, the vision of Greenspan handed down to the undergrads by the faculty wasn't one of vulgar hero-worship. Greenspan's mumblings and evasions were, after all, treated with bemusement by the faculty. But, there was the feeling that Greenspan, for all his lack of clarity, seemed to understand things that the rest of humanity didn't understand, and there was indeed faith in the idea that he must possess almost supernatural powers in fine-tuning the economy to ensure economic prosperity indefinitely.

Authoritarianism is Bad for Your Health / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The administration's terrible healthcare reform bill is now law, but the debate over how-- and whether-- the federal government should be involved in providing healthcare services is not over.  It is not too late for America to correct its course and stop the march toward a government run, "single payer" healthcare system.

Global Financial Crisis Could Lead to World War III / Politics / GeoPolitics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou know where I stand on just about all the markets. And not much has changed in them, or my views, since I spoke with you in my column last week, or even via my video update last Thursday.

So today I want to change things up a bit, and address a very important topic. One that scares the heck out of me, quite frankly … and one that I know many people are thinking about.

Two Decades Of Debt Induced Greed Unraveling into the Greater Depression / Politics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are currently in the midst of a Fourth Turning. This twenty year Crisis began during the 2005 - 2008 timeframe with the collapse of the housing bubble and subsequent repercussions on the worldwide financial system. It is progressing as expected, with the financial crisis deepening and leading to tensions across the world. It will eventually morph into military conflict, as all prior Fourth Turnings have. The progression from High to Awakening through the Unraveling took from 1946 until 2006. The most treacherous period of the Saeculm is upon us.

One Bank Ruled Them All, Trichet's ECB Powergrab  / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday, European Central Bank head Jean-Claude Trichet announced that he would continue the ECB's low interest rates (1 percent) and easy lending policies for the foreseeable future. Wall Street rallied on the news sending shares skyrocketing 273 points on the day. Trichet also said that he would continue his controversial bond-purchasing program which has drawn fire from wary German leaders who fear the onset of inflation. The bank chief adroitly dodged questions on the program suggesting that he will operate secretively like the Fed, buying up downgraded assets and concealing their original owner. By appointing himself the de facto Fiscal Czar of the European Union, Trichet has stopped the fall of the euro, scattered the short-sellers, and zapped the markets upward. Not bad for a day's work.

British Government Defends BP / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Judging the British reaction to the Gulf crisis, the Conservatives have now redefined the stakes beyond those of BP market capitalization losses. As one wire-service headline framed it: "Britain sticks up for BP". Comments left at British sites show anti-Americanism new to an otherwise friendly and allied relationship. The British press has whipped America for Obama's clumsiness, bad language, poor diplomatic skills and histrionic threats; while the British nation seems perfectly groomed, if I am to believe the media, to identify themselves with BP, a private corporation.
