Papandreou's Final Humiliation? Says Greece Will Stay in Euro Zone / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFormer Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou spoke with Bloomberg TV's Sara Eisen and said that Greece has "a few weeks" before its government runs out of money and that this is a "make or break" period.

Papandreou went on to say "I did all that I could do" and that the "personal costs" were "worth it" to serve his country.

Krugman’s Tax-Enhanced Economic Recovery Fantasy / Politics / Economic Theory

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Krugman apparently believes that he has struck the mother lode: He has declared that Ronald Reagan actually was more "Keynesian" than Barack Obama. Why? He writes:

O.K., by now many readers have probably figured out the trick here: Reagan, not Obama, was the big spender. While there was a brief burst of government spending early in the Obama administration – mainly for emergency aid programs like unemployment insurance and food stamps – that burst is long past. Indeed, at this point, government spending is falling fast, with real per capita spending falling over the past year at a rate not seen since the demobilization that followed the Korean War.

Where Does All the Money Go? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 1%…the zombies…and the rest of us…

How about that Dow? Up 286 points yesterday. And gold up $17. Markets are counting on their hero, Mr. Benjamin S. Bernanke, to come to the rescue. They can practically hear the printing presses warming up…and smell the fresh $100 bills rolling off.

Conservatives Are the Enemy, They Love, Taxes, Tariffs and the Police State / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis may sound odd. Conservatives don't love taxes. They want lower taxes. Right? They want lower taxes and smaller government.

I wish that were true. It isn't.

Alexander Hamilton was a crusader for higher taxes and a larger national government in the 1790s. He wanted higher taxes in order to raise money for a higher federal debt. He wanted higher federal debt because he wanted investors in government IOUs to commit to the survival of the United States. Free market economist Thomas DiLorenzo has summarized Hamilton's position, which he accurately identifies as crony capitalism.

America's Student Loan Racket / Politics / Student Finances

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis writer's recent book titled "How Wall Street Fleeces America: Privatized Banking, Government Collusion and Class War" includes a chapter on America's student loan racket. It discusses the issue in detail.

It explains a disturbing government/corporate partnership. Students are exploited for profit. Providers are enriched. For many, rising tuition and fees make higher education unaffordable. Others need large loans to attend. As a result, they become debt entrapped.

Debt Crisis, Damn the Torpedoes / Politics / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week in an interview on CBS Network News, Economist Mark Zandi, the chief economist for Moody's, unwittingly revealed a central error of the global economic establishment. Zandi has made a career out of finding the middle ground between republican and democrat economic talking points. As a result of this skill, he has been rewarded with large quantities of airtime from media outlets that want to appear non-partisan, despite the fact that his supposedly neutral analysis often leaves listeners frustrated.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Fiscal Cliff / Politics / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Taking a header off the "fiscal cliff" might be the best thing that could happen to the United States.

It sounds crazy, given all the dire predictions economists are making about the "Taxmageddon" that will arrive on Jan. 1, 2013.

While true, no one is talking about what would happen to the economy after the fiscal cliff crisis of 2013.

EU Implementing Border and Capital Controls to Stop People Fleeing With Their Money / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe EU in its current form is finished. Done. Game Over. I’ve been saying this for months. But it’s a fact. Europe has literally run out of money. Indeed, the ECB’s interventions are now not only toxic for those participating in them (those banks taking money via the LTRO have been crushed in the credit market) but are losing their impact (LTRO bought only one month of market gains).

Samaris Of Sypris Winning The World’s Dumbest Politician Contest / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA country that represents less than 2% of the Euro block and a tiny fraction of the world economy continues to be the tail that wags the dog. We'll all have to wait until June 17th to see whether Greeks vote with their emotions or with their heads. Currently it looks like it could be the former, which would not bode well for markets.

The US and Germany have both released decent economic readings but that won't be enough to overcome fears of yet another debt meltdown unless the Greek vote goes the right way. Negative news out of Europe pummels the Euro and the correlation between the value of the Euro and commodities is currently very high. Metals prices aren't going anywhere until the issue is resolved.

Socialist Utopia / Politics / Social Issues

By: Phill_Tomlinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother generation, another group of people who believe they can take us all to the promised land. A recent article written by Owen Jones, a left wing activist and author, titled "If socialists really did run the show, working people would benefit" displays the usual naivety and/or arrogance that has persisted with each successive generation of state planners who believe they can change the world for the good. Excepts taken from the article, accompanied with my commentary can be read below.

The fight against the tax-exempt foundations needs to continue / Politics / US Politics

By: Mario_Innecco

In 1982 G. Edward Griffin interviewed Norman Dodd who was the chief investigator for the Reece Committee. This was a U.S. House select committee created to investigate tax-exempt foundations. In this almost hour- long interview Mr Dodd reveals some very interesting information regarding the objectives and the means by which these tax-exempt foundations influence public policy in the United States of America and the world.

George Soros Warns European Union is Going Down in 3 Months / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge Soros has laid it on the line. The eurozone will begin to break up, followed by the break-up of the European Union, within three months if the politicians do not come to an agreement to re-write the treaties and centralize power. No other figure has been this apocalyptic and this specific as to the timetable.

He sees this outcome as a catastrophe. I keep thinking: "Free at last! Free at last!"

Is Greece European? / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreece is where the West both begins and ends. The West -- as a humanist ideal -- began in ancient Athens where compassion for the individual began to replace the crushing brutality of the nearby civilizations of Egypt and Mesopotamia. The war that Herodotus chronicles between Greece and Persia in the 5th century B.C. established a contrast between West and East that has persisted for millennia. Greece is Christian, but it is also Eastern Orthodox, as spiritually close to Russia as it is to the West, and geographically equidistant between Brussels and Moscow. Greece may have invented the West with the democratic innovations of the Age of Pericles, but for more than a thousand years it was a child of Byzantine and Turkish despotism. And while Greece was the northwestern bastion of the anciently civilized Near East, ever since history moved north into colder climates following the collapse of Rome, the inhabitants of Peninsular Greece have found themselves at the poor, southeastern extremity of Europe.
