Don't Be A Domesticated Extremist / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

There are countless reasons why leaving the country that purports to own you has advantages. For one, whenever I return to my personal home country of Canada - never for pleasure, only for business - I will usually run across a typically socialist Canadian who will take great offence to my worldview and will tell me, "If you don't like it, leave!"

Nothing makes me happier than to tell them, "I did... and I'm so much happier now."

24 Signs That We Are Getting Dangerously Close to a Major War in the Middle East / Politics / Middle East

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: Is 2012 the year when we will see a major war in the Middle East? For years we have heard about rising tensions in the Middle East, and for years we have heard politicians express concerns about Iran's nuclear program, but now things really do seem to be reaching a boiling point. In just the past few days, the U.S. government has imposed tough new sanctions on Iran and has totally shut down the U.S. embassy in Syria. The truth is that we are getting dangerously close to a major war in the Middle East. So will Israel strike Iran at some point in the next few months? Will the U.S. military intervene in the rapidly escalating conflict inside of Syria? If a major war does erupt, it could send the price of oil skyrocketing and there is the potential that the war could broaden very quickly. Hezbollah has already indicated that it will side with Syria, and there is always the potential that Hamas could as well. Russia and China have both stated that they are completely opposed to military action by the United States against Iran and Syria, and they have even hinted that they would possibly even help defend those countries. As the nations of the world take sides, there is even the potential that we could see World War III develop. Let us hope that it never comes to that, but with the world as unstable as it is right now, you never know what may happen.

Will U.S, NATO Atrack Iran? / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington has made tremendous preparations for a military assault on Iran. There is speculation that Washington has called off its two longest running wars – Iraq and Afghanistan – in order to deploy forces against Iran. Two of Washington’s fleets have been assigned to the Persian Gulf along with NATO warships. Missiles have been spread amongst Washington’s Oil Emirate and Middle Eastern puppet states. US troops have been deployed in Israel and Kuwait.

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePity the poor Eastern Europeans. Fifty years under the domination of their massive Soviet eastern neighbor then the collapse of Communism there two decades ago offered undreamed of opportunities to join both the European Union and NATO.

But they still remain dependent on the Russian Federation for the majority of their oil and gas needs, and the new capitalists in Moscow do not hesitate to charge the highest prices possible.

Bring Down the New World Order with Free Market Education / Politics / Education

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my report, "The Crucial Pillar of the New World Order," I argued that education is the key to the modern New World Order, or Superclass, as David Rothkopf calls it. The system of about 20 elite universities, plus a handful of exclusive four-year private colleges, is the crucial institutional means of screening entry into the inner ring of power.

I argued that a great shift has been in progress since 1960. The best universities began to screen by means of a specific kind of intellect, namely, the ability to take written examinations. I described this as the Prussian system. It is a system based on merit, but a peculiar form of merit: performance on exams. Writing well also counts. As these formal criteria have been made the barriers to entry, legacy sons from the Old World Order have not gained entry.

Banking, U.S. Housing Market and Mortgages / Politics / US Housing

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary players that caused the housing bubble are:

1) The banking institutions that bundled and sold very risky mortgages

2) The Wall Street firms that bought these instruments and hedged for a default hazard by booking speculative derivative insurance that could never pay off on massive defaults

3) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provided government backing, of last resort, on bad mortgages

Jim Grant and the GOP Joining Forces to Bring Back the Gold Standard / Politics / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With two GOP presidential candidates saying they'd add legendary Wall Street pundit Jim Grant to their administrations, bringing back the gold standard clearly has moved up on the Republican agenda.

Ron Paul, for whom returning to the gold standard has been a decades-long crusade, has said he would name Grant chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve. In his case, that would be a compromise - Paul has often called for the Fed to be abolished altogether.

Financial Crisis American Gridlock, Why The “Left” And The “Right” Are Both Wrong / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday we dive into Part 2 of Woody Brock’s notes from his new book, American Gridlock ( www.amazon.com/gridlock). He looks at what we can do in the future to prevent another crisis like we had in 2008, why we need to change, how we bargain with China (will be very controversial, in China at least!), what capitalism really is, and then he addresses the thorny issue of what it means to distribute wealth fairly. What can be said to those concerned with the top 1% of the population owning a grossly disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth?

Washington Heading for War on Syria / Politics / Middle East

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington's longstanding policy is regime change in Iran and Syria. At issue is replacing independent regimes with client ones and securing unchallenged control of valued Middle East resources.

On February 4, Russia and China vetoed a largely one-sided anti-Assad resolution. A previous article called him more victim than villain. Yet he's falsely blamed for months of externally generated violence.

That is the lowest it has been since February 2009, and it came as an unexpected surprise for financial markets that are hungry for some good news. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nonfarm payrolls jumped by 243,000 during the month of January. You can read the full employment report right here.

Double Liability for Bank Shareholders, Officers and Directors / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost people don't realize that for about 75 years after Civil War, in the United States, a bank's officers, directors and shareholders had personal liability in excess of the value of their shares.  If a bank were to be declared insolvent by the regulator, they were required to make up the shortfall in an insolvency with their personal assets.  This tends to focus the attention of the bankers to be more responsible in terms of their lending and other business practices and provides an automatic way to self-regulate.  When you have no personal responsibility, other than maybe not getting a bonus next year, why not take big chance for a bigger personal payout?  There is no downside for bankers with today's limited liability and the public is now stuck with these losses because the bankers have shifted their responsibility to the public.

U.S. Home Foreclosures and Shadow Banking: Why All the "Robo-signing"? / Politics / US Housing

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA foreclosure settlement between five major banks guilty of “robo-signing” and the attorneys general of the 50 states is pending for Monday, February 6th; but it is still not clear if all the AGs will sign.  California was to get over half of the $25 billion in settlement money, and California AG Kamala Harris has withstood pressure to settle.
