Dem Bones is Connected To De Debt Bone / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Robert_Singer

It is an understatement to say we are experiencing an unprecedented financial crisis along with our world-wide environmental crisis. Neither crisis needs an Austrian economist to explain it. We live in a consumer society and consumers “use things up.” In recent history, this useless, toxic “stuff” comes from China, and this sad state of affairs is so simple to understand that even a child can follow. Just watch the, “Story of Stuff,” a web-based documentary about the dark underside of consumption.

New President, New Opportunity / Politics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Every four years or in recent times eight years, the country gets a new President to lead the country into the future. With so much hope and expectations placed upon Mr. Obama, the risks of not making those expectations are large. And while the country may be filled with hope and pride upon the election of the first Africa-American President – back at Wall Street, it is more of the same old “stuff”. Both Citigroup and Bank of America went to the government well to take another drink of TARP money to cover over more of the past sins of lending.

Big Government, not Big Media, Threatens Free Speech / Politics / UK Politics

By: Ayn_Rand

Contrary to widespread cries that media consolidation threatens free speech, the real threat comes from laws regulating media ownership.

Self-appointed consumer watchdogs--including Obama’s recent pick for FCC chair, Julius Genachowski--have long complained about media consolidation. So it was no surprise that when the FCC recently loosened restrictions barring companies from owning a newspaper and TV station in the same city, these critics went apoplectic and are now urging the House to follow the Senate in blocking the measure.

President Obama Faces Crisis in Afghanistan and Russia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. President-elect Barack Obama will be sworn in on Tuesday as president of the United States. Candidate Obama said much about what he would do as president ; now we will see what President Obama actually does. The most important issue Obama will face will be the economy , something he did not anticipate through most of his campaign. The first hundred days of his presidency thus will revolve around getting a stimulus package passed. But Obama also is now in the great game of global competition — and in that game, presidents rarely get to set the agenda .

What's Missing from Obama's Economic Recovery Plan / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBarack Obama and Co. are planning to launch their own version of economic "shock and awe" in the opening weeks of the new administration. Aside from the $825 billion stimulus package, which will be used to create 3 million new jobs and make up for flagging consumer demand; Obama is planning a financial rescue operation for banks that are buried under hundreds of billions of dollars of troubled assets. Spearheaded by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and White House economics chief Lawrence Summers, the new program will create a government-backed "aggregator" bank that will purchase mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and other problem assets for which there is currently no active market. The proposed "bad bank" will do what the TARP program was supposed to do; wipe clean the banks balance sheets so they resume lending to consumers and businesses. Until the credit mechanism is fixed, the economy will continue slip deeper and deeper into recession.

Bailed Out Banks Seek More Money to Fill Financial Black Holes / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Strengthening or Weakening the Economy? - The economic situation continues to deteriorate this week as past and future bailouts were discussed on Capitol Hill. The debate was over the accountability of already disbursed TARP money, and on whether or not to release remaining funds. Banks that had already been bailed out before are looking for more money to fill the black holes that are their balance sheets, warning that they are simply too big to fail.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Articlewar is peace

“All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome. Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” George Orwell

Social Mood Will Define The Economic Future / Politics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBoomers have known only inflationary or reflationary conditions for most, if not all of their conscious lives. Here is the pattern: Want, work, borrow, spend, enjoy, and worry about the bills tomorrow, as if tomorrow would never come.

Now tomorrow is dawning, the bills are due, and boomers are now entering end of life with a need to consume what they perceived would be a treasure chest of accumulated wealth that would allow them to sustain their inflationary lifestyles to life's end.

Credit Crisis Panic Measure Tax Savings to Force People to Spend / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: MoneyWeek

Punishing savers is no way to help the economy. Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIntriguing new ideas about how to deal with the credit crisis are coming thick and fast. Never mind printing money – we're now seeing real radicalism in the pages of our newspapers. Last week, we saw calls in The Times to tax savings to force people to spend or invest, rather than just sit on their money. And elsewhere, two former Bank of England economists suggested that the Government buy the homes of those about to suffer repossession and rent them back to them.

Too Big to Fail? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA mortal threat to the nation's economy and national security - As our economy continues to decline and we have bailouts, loans, and guarantees that now total into the $trillions of dollars, let's examine who is getting these funds and why. These funds are not going to the community banks, mom and pop stores, or other small enterprises. They are going to huge conglomerate corporations that have been deemed “too big to fail” and therefore represent a threat to the nation's financial security. These conglomerates are the result of acquisitions and mergers over the last few decades that had the effect of reducing competition and consumer choice. In the end this has the ultimate effect of raising prices which would by definition increase profit margins.

Democrats Attacks on Obama Presidency have Already Begun / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) flexed their muscles, shook their rattles, and told President-elect Barack Obama not to tread upon them. "I don't believe in the executive power trumping everything," Reid, the Senate's majority leader, told the political newspaper, The Hill. He said he believed "in our Constitution, three separate but equal branches of government." For emphasis, he warned, "If Obama steps over the bounds, I will tell him. . . . I do not work for Barack Obama, I work with him."
