By: DK_Matai

Are we on the cusp of a new dawn? From Britain to Brazil and from Kenya to China, ATCA 5000 distinguished members in more than 150 countries around the world are beginning to report an unprecedented yet accelerating individual and collective ‘Shift’ in awareness in the last few quarters. The changes appear to be affecting many at the material, physical, emotional, mental and more subtle levels.  We have been examining four key interlocking aspects of those thoughts, observations and views expressed one-to-one by distinguished members from around the world in this regard:

Most Germans Want Constitutional Court to Kill the Euro-zone Bailout Fund / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

It appears a majority of German citizens have finally had enough of chancellor Angela Merkel saying one thing and doing another in regards to bailouts. They have also had enough of Mario Draghi and his policies.

State Schools Are an Inevitable Source of Ethnic Conflict / Politics / Educating Children

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Reid writes: The great antifascist scholar Ludwig von Mises warned that government schools are an inevitable source of ethnic conflict, because dominant nationalities can use them to indoctrinate children from other cultures, pulling them away from their parents and communities.[1] In Canada, this was explicitly the aim of the Indian residential schools, which sought to "kill the Indian in the child."[2]

Barack Obama is a Left-wing Social Climber with a Wife Who Loves to Shop / Politics / US Presidential Election 2012

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my article on the letter I received from a lawyer who insisted – inaccurately – that Michelle Obama let her license to practice law go inactive when her husband surrendered his license in early 2008, I responded: “Did Romney surrender his license? No. Did either of the Clintons surrender theirs? No. Did Nixon surrender his? No.”

Euro-zone Debt Crisis, Germany vs Greece, and Spain and... / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy read: Because things can happen very quickly, and it may be that 'push' finally may be coming to 'shove' in the Eurozone.

Commentary: Even if 'push' and 'shove' don't meet in the Eurozone over Greece (and Spain) in the next few weeks and months, time nonetheless seems to be shortening for Greece (and Spain), and eventually 'push' and 'shove' must meet. I have said for months now that:

Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI don't know about you, but I would label my personal knowledge of Hungary as wanting, if not painfully incomplete. It's not an easy country to come to grips with, not least of all of course because Hungarian doesn't look like any western language we know with the possible exception of Finnish. I did visit just after the Wall came down, and remember huge contrasts, almost paradoxes, between rural poverty and a capital, Budapest, that was much richer than other capitals such as Prague, a leftover of Budapest's status as meeting place between western and eastern diplomats and businessmen.

The Fed's Campaign / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

This past Friday, as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke delivered his annual address from Jackson Hole - the State of the Dollar, if you will - I couldn't help but hear it as an incumbent's campaign speech. While Wall Street was hoping for some concrete announcement, what we got was a mushy appraisal of the Fed's handling of the financial crisis so far and a suggestion that more 'help' is on the way.

It is important to remember that it's not just President Obama's job on the line in this election; in two years time, the next President will have the opportunity to either reappoint Bernanke or choose someone else. So we must understand what platform Bernanke is running on, as his office has an even greater effect on global markets than the President's.

Mario Draghi Over and Out / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA collapsing order will do what it takes to retain power, no matter its abuse of law or decency. Writing in Die Zeit on August 29, 2012, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi wrote (in German): "[I]t should be understood that fulfilling our mandate sometimes requires us to go beyond standard monetary policy tools. When markets are fragmented or influenced by irrational fears, our monetary policy signals do not reach citizens evenly across the euro area. We have to fix such blockages to ensure a single monetary policy and therefore price stability for all euro area citizens. This may at times require exceptional measures. But this is our responsibility as the central bank of the euro area as a whole."

September 12th Looms Large for Germany on Euro-zone Debt Financing Decision / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe German economy is undoubtedly the powerhouse of Europe. As a result, an understanding of the developments within Germany can offer a strong indication of the path that the rest of Europe is likely to take. Until recently, Germany stood as a bastion of sound money against those Keynesian led regimes in the developed nations that favor continual currency debasement as an economic panacea.

The Permanent Unemployment Economy / Politics / Unemployment

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe official underreporting of the unemployment statistics is a well-known fact. The cavalier dismissal of the systemic dismantling of the market economy by the Obama administration is undeniable. Notwithstanding, the lack of living wage jobs is not simply a partisan issue. Ever since the adoption of the globalist free trade betrayal, the national suicide of the free enterprise economy has continued. Transiting skilled employees into government dependents is an overt component of the "New Age" of reduced wealth and servitude for the ordinary American.

Cellulosic Ethanol Production: One of the Decade's Biggest Examples of Wasteful Government Spending / Politics / Ethanol

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: In February we told you that despite nearing $15 trillion in debt - now close to $16 trillion - the U.S. government decided to spend $592,000 last year to figure out why chimpanzees throw poop.

Now we've discovered yet another example of wasteful government spending that has burned up more than $1.5 billion of your tax dollars - with nothing to show for it.

Character, Policy and the Selection of Leaders / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe end of Labor Day weekend in the United States traditionally has represented the beginning of U.S. presidential campaigns, though these days the campaign appears to be perpetual. In any case, Americans will be called on to vote for president in about two months, and the question is on what basis they ought to choose.

Many observers want to see intense debate over the issues, with matters of personality pushed to the background. But personality can also be viewed as character, and in some ways character is more important than policy in choosing a country's leadership.
