Iceberg Ahead: The Big Money That Is Sinking Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI keep thinking of that clear April night 100 years ago when the unsinkable HMS Titanic steamed towards New York.  It was actually on its way to dock just a few blocks from where I live at what are now the Chelsea Piers. There was a sense of optimism abroad as a new record for a speedy transatlantic passage was about to be set.

There was music, dancing and fine wine. That is, until they saw that iceberg high in the water. The Captain and his mates were aware that 80 percent of it was underwater and out of sight. They didn’t react in time.

The French Elections: Flirting With The Abyss / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMay 6 is Maybe not 5 years more for Sarkozy, but for France and Europe, and even for the world this election process and sequence has been and will continue to be a dangerous flirt with the abyss. Whether political, social, cultural, economic or otherwise, the election process which has dragged on for months has never ceased throwing red flags and danger signals, all of them ignored and snowed under by the rush to talk and not do, letting the glacier-like advance continue. Until the abyss is reached, everything seems fine; after it nothing is fine.

U.S. Government Using Police Powers to Protect Hydralic Fracking, Being Fracked by the Merger of Government and Big Business / Politics / US Politics

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFracking is polluting water all over the country. A new study published in the journal Ground Water predicts that the highly-toxic fluids used in fracking can migrate to aquifers within a few short years.

The government has officially stated that fracking can cause earthquakes. And see this. Some fracking companies now admit this fact.

American's Fed Disinformation On Every Front / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome readers have come to the erroneous conclusion that the Matrix consists of Republican Party disinformation as if there is no disinformation from the left. Others think that propaganda is the business of Obama and the Democrats. In fact, propaganda from the right, the left and the middle are all part of the disinformation fed to americans.

If I may give some examples: The other day Chuck Colson, one of the Nixon officials imprisoned for Watergate crimes, died. This gave NPR the opportunity to relive the Nixon horror.

Stick to Value Investing, Charlie Munger / Politics / Investing 2012

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile I am on strict orders from the doctor to never watch CNBC, for my mental health, I was forwarded a video of Charlie Munger on CNBC today where he stated, "gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you're a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939 but civilized people don't buy gold - they invest in productive businesses."

New Private Equity Opportunities Are Coming Thanks to the JOBS Act / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn exceptional entrepreneurial company structure tainted unfairly by the actions of misnamed leveraged private equity buyout firms.

"Their new label became 'private equity,' a name that turns the facts upside-down: A purchase of a business by these firms almost invariably results in dramatic reductions in the equity portion of the acquiree's capital structure compared to that previously existing." – Warren Buffet

China, or How To Live in Interesting Times / Politics / China

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past few weeks I've read an absolute avalanche of articles on China, but because of all the traveling we were doing never got around to turning the information into stories for TAE. By the way, we're on the Sunshine Coast, an hour north of Brisbane, for a week or two right now, staying with friends and trying to catch our breath. It's where the Australasia tour started 11 weeks ago, so it feels kind of fitting. We’ll move over to Europe on May 15, and we will be available for lectures over there. We’re also looking for a place to stay for a month or so by the way, to do some catching up.

Is an Economic Deluge Nigh? / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Casey Research writes: If history has taught one certain lesson, it is that the less fettered an economy, the better humankind is able to do what it does best: run from trouble and run toward opportunity. In this way mistakes are quickly resolved and progress assured.

Conversely, the deeper the muck of regulation, mandates, taxes, subsidies and other bureaucratic meddling, the slower we humans are in following our natural instincts until the point that progress is slowed or even stopped.

Forget Global Warming And Move Up To Real Climate Change / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmbassador Richard H. Jones, deputy director of the IEA, opened the IEA's April conference by-lined 'Clean Energy Progress', by saying global temperatures are "probably" going to rise by "6 degrees celsius" by about 2050. The main problem, apart from this being totally impossible - barring massive meteorite attack or massive volcanic eruptions - is that fewer and fewer persons believe this story.

Americans and Their Totalitarian Government / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScott Lazarowitz writes: Morning in American - That was Ronald Reagan’s 1984 reelection campaign slogan, which manipulated the voters to give Reagan a second term of deficit-spending, expanding the welfare/warfare state, and further enlarging Big Government.

Barack Obama will do similar manipulating of the masses.

The Gold Standard is the Pet Peeve of the Power Elite / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke journeyed across town to give a 4-part seminar to 30 undergraduates at George Washington University.

This was clearly a public relations stunt. Why would the head of the world's most powerful central bank lecture to 30 undergraduates? This was not quite the equivalent of George W. Bush reading "My Pet Goat" to third graders, but it was close. Think of it as "My Pet Peeve." His first speech was an overview of central banking. He used PowerPoint to create slides. The presentation had 49 slides.

Big vs Small Bank Loans / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf your Main Street business needs capital and seeks a loan, your prospects are slim to none. It is evident that the real economy has never recovered from the collapse of the financial system. TARP was a temporary rescue of the large money center banks. For the local community banks, the massive give away has strings attached and penalties to be paid. Not much consolation for a small business endeavor that is desperate for cash and an improved business environment.
