Real, Uglier American Unemployment / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreat Recession is shown by an official unemployment rate of about 10 percent, think again.

Economic inequality and the myth of Reagan trickle down logic are shown by new data from the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston .  The report noted: “What has been missing from the public debate over the labor market crisis is an honest and detailed analysis of which American workers have been most adversely affected by the deep deterioration in labor markets.”  The researchers found a correlation between household income and unemployment rate in the last quarter of 2009:  Look carefully at these numbers and see how unemployment rises as income drops:

Capitalism Cut Adrift / Politics / Social Issues

By: William_Bowles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave we really been brainwashed?

There has been much talk expended over the years on the degree to which the media—and hence culture—is central to maintaining the capitalist system. Leading the charge have been Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman, so much so that they now more resemble sainted objects than social/political analysts, but then this is nothing new for the left, who unfortunately for the most part are happy to let others do the thinking for them.

The question arises: How wise is it to lend to wicked people? Not very. What about lending to national governments, whose representatives were elected in order to show mercy to certain voting blocs with taxpayers' money? Not very. Yet this is what has been done on a massive scale.

How the Demise of Glass-Steagall Helped Spawn the Credit Crisis / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

By Shah Gilani

Question: Please address why the removal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 caused the financial meltdown of 2007 and why its reinstatement is the only way to stop the financially risky behavior allowed after it's removal. Address why we will very likely have another meltdown (probably in 2010) unless reinstated.

Global Financial Dominance and Control, All Roads Lead to Goldman Sachs / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce upon a time, Goldman Sachs shunned publicity.  During the period from 1930 to 1969, Sydney Weinberg ran Goldman Sachs where he developed a staunch corporate cultural aversion to publicity.  During the 1970s, a tandem of John Weinberg and John Whitehead assumed the reigns of leadership at Goldman Sachs.  Whitehead left the company in 1984 to enter public life.  John Weinberg carried on in the same vein as his father Sydney – shunning publicity – to the point where he hired a man to keep his name and his firm's out of the press.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes It Make Sense to Resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act?

At the end of January, President Barack Obama announced that he is planning to introduce new regulations for the banking industry, to prevent excessive speculation. According to the president, no bank or financial institution that contains a bank will own, invest in, or sponsor a hedge fund or private equity fund, or have proprietary trading operations unrelated to serving customers for its own profit.

Why Should WE Make Sacrifices to Offset Global Warming? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world’s 6.7 billion people have been swamped in recent years by a virtual tsunami of non-stop publicity conveying the universal theme of imminent environmental disaster. We have been told almost daily that calamity can be averted only if we immediately demonstrate our good sense by doing whatever is necessary to halt the rise of man-made greenhouse gases.  Cited as the primary villain is a naturally occurring substance known to all as carbon dioxide which is also created by burning fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal.

U.S. and Canada are Global Warming Scapegoats / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiven universal awareness and belief that greenhouse gases are placing our world on the brink of imminent disaster, we should obligate ourselves to examine the origins of the climate change issue. For many people awareness and concern has emerged as if by stealth.  Our children arrive home from school all wide-eyed and anxious about the imminent extinction of polar bears, melting polar ice caps and glaciers.  Frequently, too, we see programs on television which portray what seems to be a world hell-bent on its own destruction and predicting an imminent environmental Armageddon.

Global Warming, A Man-made Crisis: Part 1 / Politics / Climate Change

By: Arnold_Bock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleClimate warming has become so universally accepted that it is worth one's reputation to raise even a tepid question regarding warming wisdom or its factual accuracy. Ordinary civic minded citizens who dare to exhibit the temerity to raise serious questions about the merits of man-made CO2 are routinely dismissed as uninformed troglodytes. Scientists who question prevailing climate wisdom are shunned by professional colleagues and shut out from lucrative government research grants. Often their careers are sidelined and professional reputations damaged, sometimes beyond repair, simply because they insist that the methodologies of science be respected.
