Will Obama Manipulate the Dow Divisor, from Fiction to Reality? / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWim Grommen writes: Dow Jones Index to 58 points

After intensive consultation with his advisors, President Obama has decided to modify the formula used for calculating the Dow Jones Index. On January 1, 2013 the Dow Divisor will be changed to 30. The result of this change will be that the Dow Jones Index drops from the current 13,124 points to about 58 points. The underlying value of the 30 component stocks of course remains unchanged. With this modification to the formula Obama aims to make the large Dow fluctuations of recent decennia a thing of the past, and hopes that this will bring stability to the stock market. Banks, major investors and pension funds welcome this change in the Dow Jones Index formula.

What Makes People Happy? Ten Key Trends / Politics / Social Issues

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat's happiness?  Does it really exist?  Can happiness last?  How does one become happy?  How many people do you know that are really happy?  What are the habits of happy people and the principles that might be at the root of their happiness? We asked ATCA 5000 distinguished members over the last several months and here are some of the results that we distilled from those one-to-one conversations around the world.

Is the Ron Paul Revolution Over? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAllan Stevo writes: At 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Mitt Romney became the GOP nominee for President.

At about the same time, 5:15 p.m., I watched a man involved with Ron Paul’s Louisiana victory box up phones at an outpost of the Ron Paul Revolution – a place from which some of the dispersed grassroots campaigns were run. Boxing up those phones marked the end of the 2012 phone-banking effort in that remote location. A room that I had seen abuzz with volunteer activity for months from early morning until whatever hour it is that Hawaiians start to no longer accept political phone calls was now being packed into a few small boxes and being shipped away. A few small boxes of equipment, a few hundred dollars to keep the lights on, and a dream for freer times ahead filled rooms like that across the country night-after-night. Tuesday that was all packed up.

How the Council on Foreign Relations Controls Conservative Republicans / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI sent a stripped-down version of my movie review of 2016 to my Tea Party Economist list. I knew it would outrage some of them.

Why did I do it? To make sure D'Souza sees it. The list is large. Someone will send it to him. I want him to know that the Old Right isn't buying his thesis that Obama's agenda is somehow uniquely wrong because it is anti-colonialist. Obama is a defender of the American Empire as Bush was. His agenda is that of one of the factions of the Council on Foreign Relations. He is not in bed with the neocons, meaning big on Israel, but the dominant foreign policy objectives of the CFR were pro-oil and therefore pro-Arab long before 1948, let alone the late 1960s, when the neocons showed up.

Obama Doctrine: China is the New ‘Enemy Image’ / Politics / New Cold War

By: F_William_Engdahl

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the collapse of the Soviet Union and the nominal end of the Cold War some twenty years back, rather than reducing the size of its mammoth defense spending, the US Congress and all US Presidents have enormously expanded spending for new weapons systems, increased permanent military bases around the world and expansion of NATO not only to former Warsaw Pact countries on Russia’s immediate periphery; it also has expanded NATO and US military presence deep into Asia on the perimeters of China through its conduct of the Afghan war and related campaigns.

Middle Class Lost Decade, Who do You Blame? / Politics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Pew Research center ponders The Lost Decade of the Middle Class.

Since 2000, the middle class has shrunk in size, fallen backward in income and wealth, and shed some -- but by no means all -- of its characteristic faith in the future.

Don’t Count Out the Labor Movement / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Almost every conservative political columnist, pundit, commentator, blogger, and bloviator has written about the decline and forthcoming death of the labor movement.

They happily point to Wisconsin, where Republican Gov. Scott Walker shortly after taking office in January 2011 took advantage of a Republican majority in the House and Senate to ram through legislation that stripped numerous collective bargaining rights for public employee unions. Among collective bargaining rights are those that assure decent working conditions and a fair grievance process to prevent arbitrary and discriminatory discipline.

From Bollywood to Hollywood: Ripping Up the Social Fabric of India / Politics / India

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleColin Todhunter writes: Apparently, we should ‘take care’ because we are ‘worth it.’ These are the feel-good catch phrases on English language TV channels in India that are being used to sell certain products. The commercials employ the same wording and that has been used in the West to sell these products for years. The actual news bulletins in India also bear a striking resemblance to the ‘newsworthiness’ agenda used by western channels. As in the West, the commercials and the news are becoming virtually one and the same.

Fictitious Fiat Money, the Singularity and Root Cause / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf we wish ever to acquire an acceptable level of equitable harmony and justice both at home and abroad, it is essential that we maintain a keen understanding of, and a rather critical eye upon "money," which as you may know, in its fictitious form, is the singular root cause of all the world's most intractable challenges.

"In its true and honest form, money is the fruit of all freedom. In its fictitious form, it is the root of all evil."

The Quiet Coup d'Etat in the Anglo-American Financial System / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

Have we heeded Simon Johnson's warning? Has he proven to be prescient? Is crony capitalism and the kleptocracy becoming bolder, more aggressive, ever more demanding?

Mainstream Media, The Voice of Tyranny / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Reid writes: The reporting on a violent incident at the Occupy protests last year reveals the linguistic lengths to which newspapers can go to hide responsibility. The National Post said it best:

Scott Olsen, 24, a former U.S. Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, was struck in the head by a tear gas canister fired on Tuesday by police trying to prevent protesters from reclaiming a public square.

A Big Bad Brick Wall / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs America settles in for a three month long across-all-media screening of Dumb and Dumber, Europeans are setting up for a valiant effort to put up an even more mind-boggling spectacle. Competition is healthy, right? The world of finance hangs on ex-Goldman Sachs vice chairman and managing director Mario Draghi's lips almost as much as it sucks up to Ben Bernanke's Jackson Hole. Central bankers become ever more important simply because in the absence of honest profits they are the only source of money left standing. If you can't make it, fake it.

Republicans Take Aim at Bernanke, Fed’s QE Policy is on the Chopping Block / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePoliticians running for the US Presidency, and their surrogates, are fond of saying “that this election is the most important of our lifetime.” They invoke this cliché so reflexively and so often that it no longer has any meaning. The reason they say this election is so important is because they want listeners to believe, for whatever reason, that it pits two deeply contrasting visions for America against one another, with only one vision capable of winning.
