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.

Advantages of Chinese Trade Policy / Politics / Protectionism

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The Chinese may take risks far more than average Americans do, thanks to advice from traditional proverbs."

The saying "At a good bargain, think twice" is pretty risk-averse. On the other hand, a typical Chinese proverb such as "Seize an opportunity and make good use of it" shows how risk-taking is ingrained in Chinese culture.

Stiglitz and Conrad Battle Over U.S. Income Inequality Stagflation or Prosperity / Politics / Social Issues

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday on Bloomberg TV: Top private equity investor (and former Bain Capital managing director) Edward Conard debates Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz about income inequality and whether Americans are better or worse off due to innovation in the economy.

Have we just experienced a half-century of stagflation, or have financial risk-takers kept us ahead of Europe and Japan? What does the data show about how much income inequality has helped - or hurt - the average American?

Are You Ready for Taxmageddon? / Politics / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: A slow moving train wreck known as "Taxmageddon" is creeping toward U.S. taxpayers.

You see, if Congress doesn't act by year's end, numerous tax breaks will expire -- and hit every American taxpayer squarely in the wallet.

Ron Paul on Washington's War Drums for Syria / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

War drums are beating again in Washington. This time Syria is in the crosshairs after a massacre there last week left more than 100 dead. As might be expected from an administration with an announced policy of "regime change" in Syria, the reaction was to blame only the Syrian government for the tragedy, expel Syrian diplomats from Washington, and announce that the US may attack Syria even without UN approval. Of course, the idea that the administration should follow the Constitution and seek a Declaration of War from Congress is considered even more anachronistic now than under the previous administration.

Europe Moves Closer to Banktatorship / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYields on 10-year Treasuries plunged to a record-low 1.56 percent on Thursday morning as panicky investors stormed out of European financial assets into German and U.S. government bonds. Deteriorating credit conditions, a flurry of ratings downgrades, and bank runs in Spain and Greece have triggered a flight-to-safety which has pushed the benchmark 10-year below its previous all-time low of 1.67 percent. Falling yields indicate that investors have lost confidence in the ability of EU policymakers to resolve the ongoing debt crisis, particularly as it relates to growing troubles in Greece and Spain.

What a Few Thousand Dollars Will Buy You in D.C. / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Let's talk today about the cheap cost of buying favorable legislation in the House, and about how bills are titled to deceive us, even when there's no good reason to lie to our faces.

But first, I have to give a giant shout-out to Kevin Wack, the Capitol Hill reporter for the American Banker, which I read every day, and you should, too.
