Central Banking Quicksand, Nothing Learned from History! / Politics / Central Banks

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls Submits: George Smith writes: In 1903, a lawyer in Germany took out an insurance policy and made payments on it faithfully.  When the policy came due in 20 years he cashed it in and bought a single loaf of bread with the proceeds. [1] He was fortunate.  If he had waited a few days longer, the money he received would have bought no more than a few crumbs.

Ron Paul Says Stop Raising the U.S. Debt Ceiling / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The federal government once again has reached the limit of its legal ability to borrow money, meaning it cannot issue new Treasury debt without action by Congress to increase the debt ceiling limit. As of this month, our "official" national debt- which doesn't include the staggering future payments promised to Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries- stands at $14.2 trillion.

Principles of Domination, Complex But Clear U.S. Foreign Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI've heard Congress people and others say repeatedly that the U.S. has no real or clear foreign policy for the Middle East. I think the U.S. has a clear but complex and changing, general policy in the Middle East which we can infer from U.S. actions, but Obama et al. keep using short run tactics and proclamations to deceive the various major powers there and the American people.

U.S. Manufacturing Rebound is a Myth / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk of a manufacturing revival is in the air.  America has, in fact, gained a quarter-million industrial jobs (source) since the start of 2010.  Unfortunately, this is less than 15 percent of the number lost during the recession. Furthermore, after this teasing uptick, U.S. manufacturing output seems to be stalling again.  So it worth revisiting a much  denied fact I have written about before here and here: American manufacturing is in a state of profound crisis.

After The Sleaze Story : The Complex Wake Of The Strauss-Kahn Affair / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat can be called the liberal media has gone into high gear on this sex scandal with all the body fluid details needing round-the-clock reporting from drab and repressive prison buildings and crowded court rooms as well as chic downtown high-rent apartment blocks. To be sure, the IMF and what this director was doing at the IMF almost never features, lkely because it is so much complex than anal sex and therefore very boring for average consumers of pap media.

Bin Laden Compound Assault, How Many U.S. Navy Seals Died? / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a sensational and explosive TV report, the Pakistani News Agency has provided a live interview with an eye witness to the US attack on the alleged compound of Osama bin Laden. The eye witness, Mohammad Bashir, describes the event as it unfolded. Of the three helicopters, "there was only one that landed the men and came back to pick them up, but as he [the helicopter] was picking them up, it blew away and caught fire." The witness says that there were no survivors, just dead bodies and pieces of bodies everywhere. "We saw the helicopter burning, we saw the dead bodies, then everything was removed and now there is nothing."

America's Fiscal Crisis: What States Can Do with Their Own Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Ford to New York: Drop Dead,” said a famous headline in 1975. President Ford had declared flatly that he would veto any bill calling for “a federal bail-out of New York City.” What he proposed instead was legislation that would make it easier for the city to go bankrupt.

The Battle for New IMF Managing Director Between Emerging and Developed Countries / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Dominique Strauss-Kahn resigned as leader of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) late Wednesday night, triggering a global battle between developed economies and emerging markets to find a new IMF managing director.

Strauss-Kahn, who was arrested May 14 on sexual assault charges, said in a statement released yesterday (Thursday) morning that he felt "compelled" to resign.

The Sexual Underground World of Bankers / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy colleague Mike Whitney asks: “So, what are the chances that Strauss-Kahn will get a fair trial now that he's been blasted as a serial sex offender in about 3,000 articles and in all the televised news reports?

Do you remember any Wall Street bankers being dragged off in handcuffs when they blew up the financial system and bilked people out of trillions of dollars?"

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Was Tying to Torpedo the Dollar / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's all about perception management. The media is trying to dig up as much dirt as they can on Dominique Strauss-Kahn so they can hang the man before he ever sees the inside of a courthouse. It reminds me of the Terry Schiavo case, where devoted-husband Michael was pegged as an insensitive slimeball for carrying out the explicit wishes of his brain-dead wife. Do you remember how the media conducted their disgraceful 24 hour-a-day Blitzkrieg with the endless coverage of weepy Christian fanatics on the front lawn of the hospital while Hannity, Limbaugh and O' Reilly fired away with their sanctimonious claptrap?

The Coming IMF Crisis / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAFTER STRAUSS-KAHN - Countries pushing for a quick resignation of disgraced IMF chief Strauss-Kahn, and others arguing a slower approach underline by coded messages who stands to gain or lose when a new IMF chief is named by a weighted majority vote at the IMF's 24-person executive board. But whoever wins, we all lose when the IMF-run gold laundering and illicit or 'gray' capital recycling operations get known.

No Nation, No Border, Fight Law and Order / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_Hartley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryday on the way into the office I walk past a particular piece of Graffiti. It's been there for a number of years. Whilst most graffiti gets painted out or cleaned off quite promptly this wall remains. I now get the feeling that the building owner must in fact be the graffiti artist or have an empathy with the message it tries to portray. The words though seem in a time-warp with reality. I imagine that perversely this was sprayed on the wall by a visiting unelected 55 year old diplomat from Brussels as one of the European Union’s slogans.

Federal Reserve Elitism, Immunity And Outstaying One’s Welcome / Politics / Central Banks

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen The Bank of International Settlements was formed back in 1930, two board seats were allocated to the U.S. Federal Reserve but for many years [decades actually] the Fed did not name anyone to these positions.  As reported by Reg Howe at the Golden Sextant years ago, The Federal Reserve finally took up their seats as directors of the BIS back in 1994.  Howe never did articulate the importance or assign a reason as to why the Fed took their seats on the BIS at that time, but he did question the timing:
