Propaganda from the Mainstream Press on the SEC-Goldman Case / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want you to read an article by the Associated Press. As you will see, it was very deficient, hardly critical of the SEC and the banking fraud, and left out key issues.  

This is just another example how the media brainwashes the public. I run across this type of deceit all day every day. The article is in italics. My comments follow.

U.S. In the Midst of the Greater Depression, Fourth Turning Generational Crisis / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article “Now I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country. Now there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that "we are holding our position." We're not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose and we're going to kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose!”

"High Frequency" Financial Trading is Wall Street High-tech Highway Robbery / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) knows that High-Frequency Trading (HFT) manipulates the market and bilks investors out of tens of billions of dollars every year. But SEC chairman Mary Schapiro refuses to step in and take action. Instead, she's concocted an elaborate "information gathering" scheme, that does nothing to address the main problem. Schapiro's plan--to track large blocks of trades by large institutional investors-- is an attempt to placate congress while the big Wall Street HFT traders continue to rake in obscene profits. It achieves nothing, except provide the cover Schapiro needs to avoid doing her job.

The Criminalization of Wall Street, Lynching Bankers is not the Solution / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Six out ten Americans have a hostile view of Wall Street, according to a recent poll. And this survey was taken before the news last week that the US government is charging top Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs and its vice president with fraud over trade in mortgages and derivatives. The charge is serious, given that Goldman Sachs is accused of being aware that there would be an imminent collapse in the US housing market. Nevertheless, the bank went ahead anyway, merrily trading its toxic assets.

Goldman Sachs and the Mega Banks: Too Big To Obey The Law / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSimon Johnson writes: On a short-term tactical basis, Goldman Sachs clearly has little to fear.  It has relatively deep pockets and will fight the securities “Fab” allegations tooth and nail; resolving that case, through all the appeals stages, will take many years.  Friday’s announcement had a significant negative impact on the market perception of Goldman’s franchise value – partly because what they are accused of doing to unsuspecting customers is so disgusting.  But, as a Bank of America analyst (Guy Mozkowski) points out this morning, the dollar amount of this specific allegation is small relative to Goldman’s overall business and – frankly – Goldman’s market position is so strong that most customers feel a lack of plausible alternatives.

Moscow Ascending, How Turkey’s New Axis With Russia Affects U.S. Interests / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have, in the past year, entered an entirely new dynamic in Eastern Mediterranean and South-East European strategic affairs. We are in a period and a region in which Russia, not the West, is taking the key initiatives and has much of the advantage. This is particularly significant given that Russian policymaking receives scant attention in US and other Western media, and remains as opaque to Western analysts as it was during the Cold War era when Russia was veiled by an Iron Curtain. At least during the Cold War, the West threw its best intellects into attempting to understand Russia and the Soviet Union.

Last week I introduced a very important piece of legislation that I hope will gain as much or more support as my Audit the Fed bill. HR 4995, the End the Mandate Act will repeal provisions of the newly passed health insurance reform bill that give the government the power to force Americans to purchase government-approved health insurance.

ProPublica's (and NY Times') "Untold" Magnetar Story Creates Excuses for Wall Street and Washington / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProPublica, Planet Money, and radio show This American Life recently carried stories about Magnetar, a hedge fund that profited from the housing crisis. Unfortunately, many thought it was a fresh revelation. Magnetar wasn't a previously unknown hedge fund. Magnetar did not create the synthetic CDO structure, and the magnitude of Magnetar's role in the subprime crisis has been overblown.

Obama's Presidential Corruption / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's obvious from the bare facts known about Obama's receipt of "favors" from Rezko, a typically corrupt "fixer" and "briber'' in the sea of Chicago corruption, that Obama was willing to use illegal means to build his financial foundation for his rush to the top of politics, but it is also obvious that he was very careful in planning the pay-offs so that they could not be proved legally.

Silver Lining to U.S. Corruption / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article   Many Americans believe that their government is incompetent, but it’s actually corrupt. Transparency International defines corruption as “the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.” Crony capitalism, sweetheart deals, lucrative post-government jobs, and campaign contributions in exchange for votes: these are all examples of corruption.

Goldman Sachs Mortgage Fraud Confirms Gordon Brown's Responsibility for the Financial Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGordon Brown yesterday confessed that Labour's light touch on financial regulation was a mistake that contributed towards the financial crisis. Previously he had repeatedly self congratulated himself for saving the banking system from collapse and blamed lack of banking sector regulation on pressure from the City of London, form the banking sector, Bank of England and FSA, all of whom he alluded to wanted light touch regulation so as to maximise profits which funded Labours public sector spending spree which he says he reluctantly went along with rather than implement the regulatory reforms that he had all along envisaged.

France Does Not Like Crude Oil Speculators / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrance wants Group of 20 nations to limit easy access by the "trading community" to the betting chips, that is derivative holdings and leveraged positions, traders use to speculate on oil. This makes oil prices not only volatile, which perhaps is OK, but at present also makes them rise, which is not OK. Speculative excesses driving down traded natural gas prices to near-record lows are perhaps not surprisingly for a country which imports gas as well as oil, absent from a new French proposal. In a French Finance Ministry report, authored by finance professor J-M Chevalier, the belles idees of France are set out in what reads like a fight for cheap oil in a science fiction trading world of the distant future.

Central Banking is an Engine of Corruption / Politics / Central Banks

By: Thomas_J_DiLorenzo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMuch has been written about the famous debate between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton over the constitutionality of America's first central bank, the Bank of the United States (BUS). This was where Jefferson, as secretary of state, enunciated his "strict constructionist" view of the Constitution, making his case to President George Washington that since a central bank was not one of the powers specifically delegated by the states to the central government, and since the idea was explicitly rejected by the constitutional convention, a central bank is unconstitutional.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKyrgyzstan’s mass anti-government protests last week were essentially the culmination of more than a decade of disillusionment and dissatisfaction that accumulated in the nation’s political, economic and social spheres from the period of Akayev to his successor Kurmanbek Bakiyev, with virtually every Kyrgyz concerned about rising prices and falling standards of living, both issues of little concern and dimly understood in Washington.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRank and file Tea Partiers are, politically speaking, lost at sea in the dead of night, looking for the light of common principles. On land, those manning right-wing lighthouses are broadcasting ideas loaded with hidden motives into this ocean of conservative public opinion. What the Tea Party will become is presently unknown; but those with an agenda will do their best to steer lost boats at sea in their direction, with potentially dangerous consequences.

The Aftermath of the Kyrgyzstan Revolution - The Lesser Players / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent unrest in Kyrgyzstan has largely been portrayed as an epic clash between U.S. and Russian interests.

That said, interest in events in Bishkek extend far beyond Kyrgyzstan throughout the regional and one should expect the following voices to add their concerns as the situation evolves. While largely overlooked by media coverage, their influence could be a significant factor in both interim and long-term solutions that emerge to Kyrgyzstan’s recent upheavals.
