Back in the U.S.S.A. / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHarry Browne, the former Libertarian Party candidate for president, used to say: "the government is great at breaking your leg, handing you a crutch, and saying 'You see, without me you couldn't walk.'" That maxim is clearly illustrated by the financial industry regulatory reforms proposed this week by the Obama Administration.

The Larger Context of the 2009 Iranian Elections / Politics / Iran

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReza Fiyouzat writes: Much furor is being expressed by all sides, foreign and domestic, regarding the outcome of the 2009 Iranian presidential elections held on June 12. The rapid announcement of the total results in a mere few hours after the closing of the polls, came as a shock to the supporters of Mir-Hossein Mousavi, the main 'reformist' challenger to Ahmadinejad. Since then, there have been massive spontaneous demonstrations in Tehran as well as in other major cities, such as Shiraz, Tabriz and Rasht. At least one person has been killed in the clashes between the police and Mousavi supporters.

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Bowles writes: If nothing else, the wholesale plunder of the planet’s natural resources has brought into sharp focus the necessity for some kind of global (and globally enforceable) regulation of what’s left of the planet’s precious cargo of life. But can capitalism undertake such a task? Not only that, is it willing to do so and is even some kind of ‘reformed’ capitalism capable of doing so given that the basic drive of capitalism is expand or die.

Ankara Moscow and Washington in the Eurasian Crude Oil Pipeline Calculus / Politics / Crude Oil

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCalculus has two main variants—derivative and integral. The Eurasian energy pipeline geopolitics between Turkey Washington and Moscow today has elements of both. It is highly derivative in that the major actors across Central Asia from China, Russia to Turkey are very engaged in a derived power game which has less to do with any specific state and more to do with maintaining Superpower hegemony for Washington. Integral as the de facto motion of various pipeline projects now underway or in discussion across Eurasia hold the potential to integrate the economic space of Eurasia in a way that poses a fundamental challenge to Washington’s projection of Full Spectrum Dominance over the greatest land mass on earth.

Regulatory Overhaul Equal Summers Job Creation Program? / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday, the Administration is sharing its vision for the future of the financial system. To us, it seems more like a job creation program for Lawrence Summers, the Director of the White House’s National Economic Council. It’s long been rumored that he wants the top job at the Federal Reserve (Fed) should Fed Chief Bernanke’s term not be renewed in early 2010. Summers, a former Treasury Secretary, and known for his hands-on, at times confrontational approach, seems an odd fit for what is traditionally a job for calmer spirits.

Obama's Blueprint for Reform Concentrates Still More Power in Hands of the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Washington Post has released a "near final" draft of Obama's financial reform proposals. As expected, the paper whitewashes the role of the Fed and Fractional Reserve Lending as well as the role of unfunded Congressional spending in creating the mess. Instead, Obama's plan gives more power to those responsible for creating the mess.

Iran Political Situation Ready to Explode / Politics / Iran

By: Pravda

Iran is standing on the verge of chaos after sitting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won the first stage of the presidential election in the country on June 12. His three rivals received less than a third of all votes, which triggered massive riots across the nation. Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who obtained 33 percent of the votes cast, stated that the election had been totally fabricated. Two other candidates - Mohsen Rezaee, former Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and Mehdi Karroubi, former Speaker of the Majlis, - said that they would support Moussavi in his endeavor to revise the election results.

Life Is Destroying the Planet! / Politics / Climate Change

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleButler Shaffer writes: Recent news stories advise us of yet another contributor to the menace of global warming, this one arising from the flatulence produced by cows. The metabolic processes engaged in by our bovine neighbors produce methane, one of the greenhouse gasses against which the environmentalist faithful are ever vigilant. Methane is also produced through the breakdown of organic matter (e.g., manure, dumpsites) and, other life forms. In his book Gaia the renowned chemist, James Lovelock, analyzed how methane, produced in the guts of termites, is an essential factor in the self-regulating nature of the earth’s atmosphere.

Property Rights Take a Hit Due to Crony Capitalism / Politics / Government Intervention

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Crony capitalism” is a term often applied to foreign nations where government interference circumvents market forces. The practice is widely associated with tin-pot dictators and second-rate economies. In such a system, support for the ruling regime is the best and only path to economic success. Who you know supersedes what you know, and favoritism trumps the rule of law. Unfortunately, this week's events demonstrate that the phrase now more aptly describes our own country.
