Why Government Control over Financial Markets has to Grow! / Politics / Government Intervention

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Growth of control by banks and government

Quietly, but thoroughly, governments and the banking system have taken an ever increasing role in every aspect of the economy and individual's lives. Where in the distant past cash was the only means of exchange, cash is now controlled by the banking system and cash transactions reduced to a miniscule role in all our lives. Even in Cyprus after the 'confiscation' of deposits, cash is rationed and transactions within the banking system are allowed up to €200,000 before a 'bank committee' has to approve them. The banking system is answerable only to government. Government is grateful to the banking system because government has a means of visible monitoring and controlling its citizen's financial affairs. Through the banking system, government is able to control our financial lives as never before. Cyprus demonstrates how that control will be increased even in crises caused by themselves.

Alarming Growth in Americans "on Disability" Could Bankrupt Social Security / Politics / Government Spending

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes:Since the start of the recession in December 2007, one in four workers who stopped looking for employment and dropped out of the U.S. labor force found another source of money: collecting disability from Social Security.

And in that same time span, the number of Americans receiving benefits from the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program has grown by more than 25%.

Obama's New Budget is a Stealthy Assault on the Middle Class / Politics / US Economy

By: Money_Morning

With a little sleight of hand in how the government calculates inflation, the Obama budget 2014 released today (Wednesday) proposes to both raise taxes on the middle class and reduce future payments to Social Security recipients.

That's quite a reversal coming from a Democratic president who had promised to protect the American middle class.

Missing Lynchpin Of Japan's Great Experiment - Trust / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Andrew_McKillop

JAPAN'S GREAT EXPERIMENT
Describing the antics of the Japanese government and its central bank (BOJ) as "not just running the largest monetary experiment in their history, but also the largest social engineering experiment", Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity in a recent ZeroHedge post concludes: "Were I a Japanese citizen, I would immediately convert my Yen holdings to something, anything, else.  Swiss francs, gold, dollars – anything (!) would be preferable......Once your central bank declares war on its own currency, this is just the prudent thing to do".

What Is Or Was The European "Superstate"? / Politics / European Union

By: Andrew_McKillop

OLD, NEW, BORROWED AND BLUE
The absolutely basic problem for answering this question is that no European politician, nor European technocrat, civil servant or 'functionary' will admit there is any kind of plan to create a Superstate. They will quickly shift to talking about "convergence and integration", which basically mean the same thing. Once again the European cult of lying makes it impossible to have any rational discussion or analysis of what a "Superstate" might mean   http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article39568.html

Cypriot Chaos Assists E.U. Centralization / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Remarks by members of the European Union's elite suggesting that banking deposit seizures may become standard practice appear to have heightened the risk of a European bank run and perhaps even a catastrophic collapse of the euro. Any threat to the euro is a threat to the European public's conception of the Union's manifest destiny. As such, I believe members of the EU elite may be purposefully leveraging the crisis to push for a centralized European banking system to cement the political framework of an EU superstate.

The North Korea Paper Tiger / Politics / North Korea

By: BATR

If you listen to the alarm coming out of the imperium empire media, you would think that missiles would be flying at any moment. That medieval torture regime noted for starving their population is boasting that a bellicose attack is imminent. Of course, their propagandists are pointing the finger at the Yankee bully that is the perennial bogyman posed to snuff out the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Such an earthly paradise is billed as a “genuine workers' state in which all the people are completely liberated from exploitation and oppression. The workers, peasants, soldiers and intellectuals are the true masters of their destiny and are in a unique position to defend their interests.”

US Government To Decide How Much Is Enough For Your Retirement / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Jeff_Berwick

Welcome to the new US.  Socialism always has the same predictable process.  Once the government collectivizes a sector then the politicos and bureaucrats get to work on "improving the system".  In a private enterprise, that'd mean offering more to your customers for a cheaper price.  In government, it is always the opposite, finding ways to reduce benefits for their "customers".

Ron Paul - Homeschooling is The Future of Liberty / Politics / Educating Children

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

A common feature of authoritarian regimes is the criminalization of alternatives to government-controlled education. Dictators recognize the danger that free thought poses to their rule, and few things promote the thinking of "unapproved" thoughts like an education controlled by parents instead of the state. That is why the National Socialist (Nazi) government of Germany outlawed homeschooling in 1938.

Queen Merkel Still Loves Green Power / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

SHE MIGHT NOT LOOK ECOLOGICAL
Angela Merkel has stayed faithful to alternate, renewable and energy-saving green themes and dreams since 2011, which is a long time in politics. One major reason (we know its paradoxical) is that Germany has been radically increasing its coal-burn, this winter, which itself is delaying large increases of power prices to consumers. Other reasons are also to be found there, in the power sector.

Stockman Takes Down Krugman / Politics / US Economy

By: William_Anderson

In 1981, David A. Stockman, a former Michigan congressman turned budget director for President Ronald Reagan, gave a series of interviews to socialist William Greider who subsequently published an article in Rolling Stone entitled, "The Education of David Stockman." The article portrayed someone who had come into the administration hopeful that the free-spending ways of the 1960s and 70s would be ended and that the U.S. Government would embrace fiscal sanity, but had become disillusioned by the whole process.

North Korea Nuclear Threat Beyond the Cold War Theatrics / Politics / North Korea

By: Patrick_Henningsen

The recent show of force by the United States marks one of the lowest points in modern diplomacy, but beyond the geopolitical threatrics it turns out that very little is actually known about the North Korean threat.

North Korea’s recent series of weekly verbal provocations towards Seoul and their ally the US – should be taken seriously in diplomatic terms, but is Pyongyang’s bark worse than its bite?
