The Quantifiable Problem With Private Sector Salaries / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was particularly interested in this week's ubiquitous newspaper insert, Parade magazine, as its cover featured the interesting article "What People Earn. Our Annual Salary Survey."

Knowing that the average government worker makes an astounding twice as much in wages and benefits as the average private-sector worker, I was hoping that I could use something in the article to take to my boss, as part of my new Mogambo Income Enhancement Plan (MIEP), and say, "Hey! Look at all the money these people make! I deserve more money to work at this crappy job! And I deserve more because I am probably as good an employee as at least one of these guys! I want a raise! Big fat one!"

Unfolding Nuclear Catastrophe in Japan, Leaking Radioactive Contamination / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Washingtons_Blog

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKyodo News reports: A nuclear crisis at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant deepened Tuesday as fresh explosions occurred at the site and its operator said water in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods may be boiling, an ominous sign for the release of high-level radioactive materials from the fuel.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the water level in the pool storing the spent fuel rods at its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant's No. 4 reactor may have dropped, exposing the rods.

Nuclear Power Madness / Politics / Nuclear Power

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNorman Solomon writes: Like every other president since the 1940s, Barack Obama has promoted nuclear power. Now, with reactors melting down in Japan, the official stance is more disconnected from reality than ever.

Political elites are still clinging to the oxymoron of "safe nuclear power." It's up to us - people around the world - to peacefully and insistently shut those plants down.

Kennedy’s Blunder, or How Free Trade Turned Sour for America / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

How did America end up in its present trade pickle? NAFTA? No way. The WTO? I wish. To understand our present predicament, you need to go back much further than that.

In retrospect, America’s decisive wrong turn on trade was probably John F. Kennedy’s Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

Japan, the Persian Gulf and Energy / Politics / Crude Oil

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past week, everything seemed to converge on energy. The unrest in the Persian Gulf raised the specter of the disruption of oil supplies to the rest of the world, and an earthquake in Japan knocked out a string of nuclear reactors with potentially devastating effect. Japan depends on nuclear energy and it depends on the Persian Gulf, which is where it gets most of its oil. It was, therefore, a profoundly bad week for Japan, not only because of the extensive damage and human suffering but also because Japan was being shown that it can’t readily escape the realities of geography.

Could Nuclear Radiation From Japan Meltdown Reach the United States? / Politics / Environmental Issues

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: The possibility of a full-blown nuclear meltdown of one or more of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors seems to increase by the hour.  Millions of weary Japanese citizens are desperately hoping that the worst case scenario does not play out.  A major nuclear disaster is the last thing that they need at this point.  So could radiation from a meltdown of one or more of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors reach the United States?

WTO Judicial Activism vs. America / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The WTO’s latest outrage has brought this odious organization to public attention again, but this is hardly the first time it has sided against American interests.

For example, it has for years engaged in judicial activism aimed at systematically rewriting American trade law to our disadvantage. As Robert Lighthizer, a former Deputy U.S. Trade Representative, told a hearing of the House Trade Subcommittee in 2007:

Saudi Troops Storm Into Bahrain / Politics / Middle East

By: STRATFOR

Forces from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries will enter Bahrain to help the Bahraini regime quell unrest, according to a number of media reports, including by Bahrain’s Alyam newspaper, known for its close links with the ruling al-Khalifa family. The reports come one day after clashes occurred between Shiite protesters and police in the capital, Manama. Meanwhile, Bahraini state media reported that the Independent Bloc (a parliamentary bloc of the Bahraini parliament) asked Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa to enforce martial law to contain the unrest.

Japan Nuclear Melt-Down? The Government to the Rescue / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike (in Tokyo) Rogers writes: The nuclear power plant failures and explosions near Fukushima, Japan are an excellent case example of the failure of government. Here, the Japanese government has been horribly derelict before, during and after this incident. This freak occurrence would be a tragedy of comical proportions if only it weren’t so grotesque and a real-life horror show. It has been a brutal tragedy of errors that makes me wonder why anyone would trust or believe anything the government says.

WTO Sides With Chinese State Capitalism Against the U.S. / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The World Trade Organization has a long history of anti-American actions. They’ve just handed us another one, and in the process handed a big freebie to Chinese state capitalism.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, huge sections of our nation’s trade policy aren’t set in this country anymore. They are set by panels of WTO judges in Switzerland, to whom we have signed over the right to rule on the legitimacy of our policies.

Free Trade and the Tea Party: Puppets or Rebels? / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy job deprives me of the luxury of partisanship, as I have to reach out to both sides on the issue of free trade--a disastrous policy one can give impeccably liberal or conservative reasons to be against. So I can't offer any opinion of the Tea Party movement per se. But I can tell you that the way they're handling the issue of free trade reveals a lot about them.

British Style "Liberation": Beware the Ides of March.

Even by the standards of a near bancrupt island off Europe, run currently, largely, by a bunch of seemingly gung-ho, out of out of touch millionaires, the gun boat diplomacy of Messrs Cameron, Fox and Hague (Prime Minister, Defense Minister and Foreign Minister respectively) was a monumental farce of historic proportions.

The Financial Consequences of the Middle East Protest Movement? / Politics / Middle East

By: Bob_Chapman

Just as we pointed out after the Tunisian episode, this was the beginning of CIA, MI6 and Mossad planned activities in the Middle East. As usual there were several objectives. The first was a distraction to cover up the financial troubles in the US, UK and Europe. The second was to remove Mubarak from his dictatorial position, because of his refusal to participate and agree to an invasion of Iran and to cause chaos in the region, so that those who were pro-Iran would not give it assistance in the event of war. There was also the matter of controlling Libya’s oil and toppling its dictator Gadhaffi. The US and the Brits want Libya’s oil among other things.

Japan's Chernobyl, Nuclear Power Plant Explodes, Meltdown in Progress / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA March 12 explosion at the earthquake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Okuma, Japan, appears to have caused a reactor meltdown.

The key piece of technology in a nuclear reactor is the control rods. Nuclear fuel generates neutrons; controlling the flow and production rate of these neutrons is what generates heat, and from the heat, electricity. Control rods absorb neutrons — the rods slide in and out of the fuel mass to regulate neutron emission, and with it, heat and electricity generation.
