U.S. Exposure to Europe - Unknowns Unknowns / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"[T]here are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - there are things we do not know we don't know." - Former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, February 12, 2002

There were reasons to criticize Donald Rumsfeld's turn as Defense Secretary but this was not one of them, even though the media quoted and re-quoted this most sensible approach to uncertainty as proof of a retarded intellect.

The New Left - Neoliberal Climate Alliance / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCHOMSKY WRONG AGAIN
Strange causes throw together strange bedfellows with even stranger offspring. Naom Chomsky, always sure to place himself with the angriest-seeming part of the New Left crowd, has no problem ranging himself alongside the Climate Crazies despite them receiving yet another big setback, in Durban. Packing their suntan lotions and picking up their air tickets somebody else paid for, the overfed bureaucrats and overpaid lobbyists who profit from climate craziness failed in their quest to suck more subsidies and garner more public cash for their Great Cause, once again. The strange band of New Left climate radicals is breaking up, as its upstream cause fed by one-liner slogans and Rentacrowd Science fails to amuse, beguile, fool or provoke like it used to. Climate change is a big yawn.

Subject Banks to the Free Market or Turn Them into Utilities / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Let's face it. Banking is a protected industry. It's a government-coddled industry.

The problem with that is, banks really aren't subject to free market forces that would naturally eliminate insolvent and inefficient institutions. The result is more bad banking.

Did Ron Paul Slay The Gold Bull? / Politics / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Brady_Willett

The price of gold was off by nearly 5% yesterday, with comex gold losing over $97 an ounce on an intraday basis.  This price collapse is comparable, in percentage terms, to the carnage seen in other precious metals, but well beyond the damage seen in other ‘risk’ areas of the marketplace (i.e. commodities and equities). Accordingly, the question deserves to be asked: why is gold outpacing the recent decline in other ‘risk’ areas of the marketplace?

Higgs Boson God Particle Mass for the Inflationary Universe Explained, Economic Implications / Politics / Technology

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Higgs Boson so called "God" particle has been purported to have been discovered just prior to the Christmas holidays by scientists at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It might seem rather odd that scientists have introduced 'god' into the equation, however given by the media coverage that was never apparent during the discovery of the other elementary particles, the "God" particle has proved a useful media marketing tool to promote the discovery to the mainstream media and the ordinary masses.

The Higgs Boson, Global Warming And Green Energy / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoinciding with the failed climate talks in Durban, mainly due to the European Union's bizarre and kamikaze negotiating stance, another European marvel of government spending - CERN - announced its research teams could or might have glimpsed the Higgs boson. They say it might well exist. Only might exist, note it well. Most people neither know or care what a Higgs boson might be but it should have a partner thing out there in the Universe, called the graviton. The boson would "explain" mass while the graviton would "explain" gravity, in the same way other government-paid scientists and the politicians who pay them say that CO2 "explains" climate change, which exists, but their explanation needs global warming - which might not exist.

U.S. Wastes $3.5 Trillion on Iraq War, Prepares for War Against Iran / Politics / Iraq War

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Van Auken writes: The White House has used the imminent withdrawal of all but a handful of US troops from Iraq to promote Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. The president’s strategists are conducting a cynical propaganda operation aimed at simultaneously identifying him with the military and pushing the claim that the pullout is a fulfillment of his 2008 campaign promises.

Legislating Tyranny in America, Orwell and Beyond / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleObama won't prosecute CIA torturers, Wall Street crooks, other corporate criminals, lawless war profiteers, or other venal high-level civilian or government officials.

Instead, expect him to sign into law (or at least tacitly approve) indefinite military detentions of US citizens allegedly associated with terrorist groups, with or without corroborating evidence.

Euro Crisis: David Cameron, Britain’s Financial Arsonist Returns to the Scene of the Crime / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Finian_Cunningham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe incendiary finance capitalism unleashed by Britain 25 years ago is at the heart of Europe’s raging debt woes

You either have to admire British Prime Minister David Cameron’s brass neck, or wince at his arrogant stupidity. The smart money is probably on the latter option.

The ESM Financial Insolvency and the Bailout of Europe's Mega Banks / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter watching Europe’s performance last week the only thing they really were after was an ESM, European Stabilization Mechanism, to tie down all EU nations to a tighter regional set up. As it turns out England and others did not agree. Britain obviously does not want to become part of a new treaty that deprives them of their sovereignty. This regional government concept appeared in the early 1960s and is now going to be pushed in Europe with the US to follow. Our question, is England just trying to protect the advantages of the “City of London,” or is the disagreement deeper than that? A new treaty will take two years for ratification, but in the meantime an agreement will hold forth on what can be called a handshake. Evidence is still out on whether this is an attempt by Germany to break up the euro zone and the EU or a genuine effort to set up a platform for world government. We know that since WWII that the internationalists have been setting up Europe as the foundation for world government. On the other hand we know that 65% to 70% of the German people want no part of it from any standpoint.

While rumors of Europe's impending demise were momentarily shot down by an array of silver bullets, the actual news out of Brussels of a grand bargain wasn't... exactly... honest.

The US Becomes Just Another Military Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScott Lazarowitz writes: Within days after my article on due process and presumption of innocence, the U.S. Senate voted to empower the U.S. military to apprehend and detain indefinitely anyone in America, based on the whim of the soldier or military commander, and it will probably eventually include any armed agent of government including local police. As Jacob Hornberger noted, this new provision will codify the U.S. as just another one of many dictatorships throughout world history.

More Reasons to Say 'Thanks' Before Waving Good-Bye to the United States / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis joyous holiday season, those still living in the US should give thanks for one thing: that it's not 2012 yet. If you haven't begun the countdown, now's the time. And there's not a whole lot left of it before it's too late.

You see, the overlords in DC have a host of new disciplinary and capital-control legislation ready to be unleashed upon the populace starting in less than a month.

Markets of Shame Before The Collapse: Crisis, Crisis, Everywhere / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this week, Stephen Colbert announced dramatically that there were important developments underway in Europe that we should know about.

True to form, Colbert’s Repor didn’t talk about the big problem. His story, ha ha ha, was about a butter shortage in Norway.  Talk about going from the obscure to the ridiculous.
