Event Horizon For Low Carbon Energy, The End Of Fossil Fuels ? / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOfficial plans for Low Carbon energy transition in several countries, and for as long as the European Union's climate-energy package holds together, for all the EU's 27 member states, target a complete and total replacement of fossil energy within as little as 45 years. US president Obama in January 2011 called for a “Sputnik moment” to wean the US completely off fossil fuels. Since then however, carbon cap-and-trade legislation has failed in the US and increasing company failures in solar cell and wind turbine production industries have eroded the credibility of this "Sputnik moment". Today, White House briefing papers attribute much of the rebound in manufacturing which could help Obama back into power, to the boom in cheap shale gas supply made possible by "fracking" technology.

America, Welcome to the Fourth Reich / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerican Fascism did not start with World War II. Before Operation Paperclip, the codename under which the US intelligence and military services extricated scientists from Germany, during and after the final stages of the conflict, the annals of internal despotism were well established. With the open door policy for German engineering, the political ideology of state worship was bound to travel across the Atlantic.

Why You Should Ignore the Coming Debt Ceiling Debate / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Under the guise of yet another debt ceiling debate, Republicans and Democrats will spend much of the week demonizing each other on the Washington stage.

But don't be fooled. This so-called debate will be nothing more than a planned-in-advance sideshow to supply each side with 2012 election campaign fodder.

Oil, Dollar Hegemony and Islam / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrancis A. Boyle writes: Little has changed in the imperialist tendencies of American foreign policy since the founding of the United States of America in seventeen eighty-nine. The fledgling United States opened the nineteenth century by stealing the continent of North America from the Indians, while in the process ethnically cleansing them and then finally deporting the pitiful few survivors by means of death marches (a la Bataan) to Bantustans, which in America we call reservations, as in instance of America's manifest destiny to rule the world.

DEMOCRATIZE BANKING: How Counties Can Use Land Banks and Eminent Domain / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn electronic database called MERS has created defects in the chain of title to over half the homes in America.  Counties have been cheated out of millions of dollars in recording fees, and their title records are in hopeless disarray.  Meanwhile, foreclosed and abandoned homes are blighting neighborhoods.   Straightening out the records and restoring the homes to occupancy is clearly in the public interest, and the burden is on local government to do it.  But how?  New legal developments are presenting some innovative alternatives.

Child Benefit Cuts to be Tapered For Higher Rate Tax Payers, Coalition Government Benefits Culture Failure / Politics / Taxes

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The government is seeking to amend the proposed Child Benefit cuts for families where there is a single higher rate tax payer, which is grossly unfair as in its current form would mean a family of 3 children with one tax payer earning £42,375 (Not £44k as stated in the mainstream press) would lose £2,200 in child benefit, whereas a family with two wage earners earning £42,000 each would retain their full child benefit despite having combined earnings of £84,000.

Wall Street’s Ratings Agencies Undermine Europe’s Attempt at Economic Recovery Acting Like Financial Terrorists / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe live in an increasingly degraded country. Our politics are degraded and a laughing stock to the word. Our military is demoralized and degraded with soldiers urinating on dead civilians and awaiting deployment orders for the next illegal intervention.

Our education system has been degraded with standards falling and pervasive defunding. Our transportation system, ditto.

Fed Plays PR Games / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Browne

The world was taken by surprise recently by the Federal Reserve Board's announcement that it would publish some of its economic forecasting that forms the basis for its short-term interest rate strategy. The Fed claims that the move will vastly increase so-called transparency, which has become a buzz word for honesty and virtue. However, the new policies do nothing to remove the cloak of secrecy that conceals still many of its most significant activities. This myth of new transparency will do little to lure investors back into the markets but as an unintended consequence will reveal just how profoundly the markets are currently guided from the top.

Burning Eurozone, All is Quiet on the Eastern Front? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 had been touted as the year that everything would change. Massive paradigm shifts would rock our world and many a prophecy was made regarding financial crises, currency crises, wars, rumors of wars, and there was even one fellow who said the world itself would end, although he later retracted his predictions, but not before his followers had spent their life savings putting up billboards. Such hysteria is certainly the hallmark of times such as these, but we have to keep in mind that just because some of the predicted events didn’t happen yet, we’re a long, long way from being out of the woods. There is an old saying that if you do what you’ve always done; you’re going to get what you’ve always gotten. If we continue to sow the seeds of false fixes and faulty economics, we’re going to continue to reap financial and economic crisis. It really is that simple.

Food Provisions Shortage Sparked Arab Spring / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1798 32 year-old British economist Malthus anonymously published "An Essay on the Principle of Population" and in it he argued that human population's increase geometrically (1, 2, 4, 16 etc.) while their food supply can only increase arithmetically (1, 2, 3, 4 etc.).

"The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man". Thomas Robert Malthus

The US Lusts To Rule the Globe, The Next War on Washington’s Agenda / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnly the blind do not see that the US government is preparing to attack Iran. According to Professor Michel Chossudovsky, “Active war preparations directed against Iran (with the involvement of Israel and NATO) were initiated in May 2003.”

Washington has deployed missiles directed at Iran in its oil emirate puppet states, Oman and the UAE, and little doubt in the other US puppet states in the Middle East. Washington has beefed up Saudi Arabia’s jet fighter force. Most recently, Washington has deployed 9,000 US troops to Israel to participate in “war games” designed to test the US/Israeli air defense system. As Iran represents no threat unless attacked, Washington’s war preparations signal Washington’s intention to attack Iran.

Washington’s Plan to Isolate Iran is Drifting Towards a Profitable Stalemate / Politics / Middle East

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the surface, the latest spat between the West and Iran looks like a step closer to war, with tensions reaching a fever pitch on both sides of this potential conflict. Upon closer examination however, present conditions are not particularly ideal for a preemptive strike against Iran by the US and Israel. There is still much money to be made from the current crisis – on both sides, before the winds of war could be unleashed on the region.

Another Iranian Nuclear Scientist Killed as Covert War Against Iran Escalates / Politics / Middle East

By: Finian_Cunningham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US covert war against Iran raised the stakes even higher today with the assassination of yet another nuclear scientist, with some analysts saying that the Islamic Republic is being pushed into a corner to either back down in its confrontation with the US or retaliate – the latter most certainly triggering an all-out war.
