ECB in Secret Seeks Infinite Power / Politics / Central Banks

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The Financial Times reports that the European Central Bank has secretly distributed E100 billion to Greek banks and billions more in secret to other European banks and, in doing so, has gained great "sway over eurozone politicians" -- you know, the people actually elected to run their countries.

“Infinite secret money is infinite secret power, and it's great that the FT is interested in this aspect of central bank secrecy. Is it too much to hope that the FT someday will show similar interest in the secrecy imposed by central banks on their interventions in the gold market, interventions detailed by GATA here?”

The Irish "Fiscal Treaty" Referendum Result and the Euro Crisis / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is early days in the Irish referendum count but the yes side has won.

This vote brings a degree of stability to Irish finances but unfortunately it may be too little too late as it looks like the Euro project in general is in trouble and may not survive.  The game has moved on and it is moving fast.

The Truth About Europe: There Is No Solution / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI like that title, The Truth About Europe: There Is No Solution. But I don't think it can all be summed up, the reasons why I mean, in one article. So I think I'll make it a running series. Still, whatever data we can look at, past, present and future, none of it will make an essential difference. The title stands: There Is No Solution For Europe. Period. All I can do is keep pointing to news and stats and data that confirm that. All of them do, so that should make it a lot easier, even if most voices out there never tire from pointing out the opposite.

Reform of US Monetary System: Message of 12 Year Old Goes Viral / Politics / US Dollar

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe youtube video of 12 year old Victoria Grant speaking at the Public Banking in America conference last month has gone viral, topping a million views on various websites.

Monetary reform—the contention that governments, not banks, should create and lend a nation’s money—has rarely even made the news, so this is a first.  Either the times they are a-changin’, or Victoria managed to frame the message in a way that was so simple and clear that even a child could understand it.

Ten Ways the US Is Worse Than It Was In 1947 / Politics / US Debt

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North is an icon in the Austro-libertarian world, and writes more in a day than most will write in their lifetimes.  The majority of what he says is excellent and it is well worth your time listening to whatever he has to say.  

In his recent article, entitled, "Why We Are Not On The Road to Serfdom", he takes a slightly different perspective than TDV on the state of liberty in the USSA.  In it, he makes many good points and tries to lay out the case that because the US Government is on the verge of financial collapse, we should be optimistic about the future.  He opens his argument with the following statement: "the federal government is no deeper into our pockets than it was in 1947," and presents us with the following chart:

Capital Controls Have No Place in a Free Society / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The characteristic mark of a tyrannical regime is that it eventually finds it necessary to erect walls to keep people from leaving. This is why we should be troubled by the "Ex-PATRIOT Act," an egregiously offensive bill recently introduced in the Senate. Following a long line of recent legislation and regulations attempting to expropriate more and more wealth from hard-working Americans, this new bill spits in the face of overburdened taxpayers and tramples on the Constitution.

Graduates of 2012 Face Consequences of the Fourth Turning / Politics / Education

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is the season when students all over the country are graduating and listening to graduation speeches. I have heard more than my share over the years. But never one like this week's Outside the Box essay, from my friend and world-class demographer Neil Howe. Neil was co-author of The Fourth Turning, which way back in 1997 absolutely nailed the coming generational changes we are now living through, giving us a fascinating and eerily accurate guide to our future. The premise is that a generation is a 20-year period and that generational social tendencies repeat roughly every 80 years and have done so in the Anglo-Saxon world for hundreds of years. And now the Millennial generation is coming of age in a world dominated by Boomers, and we are seeing another cycle change.

A Fair Price For Energy In Europe ? / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFROM ZERO TO INFINITY
One thing electricity consumers in Europe can expect, at latest by about 2017 but probably well before, is that power prices will be "highly variable". They will probably be higher than present, for starters - but on occasions power may also be literally given away - as happens in Germany today, when its a windy and sunny day and power demand is low, for example at weekends in May 2012. The reason is very simple: the combined wind and solar generating capacity of Germany is about 55 000 MW, and growing, but when national power demand is at its lowest, it is around 35 000 MW.

Can Obama Stop Casino Capitalism? / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

The recent JPMorgan scandal where billions of dollars were lost in risky bets has re-ignited the move to properly regulate the U.S. banking system.

Among those asking for new regulations is Robert Reich, former labor secretary to Bill Clinton. Recently Reich made a plea of sorts to President Obama, whom he wishes would take the commonsense approach to bank regulation by re-installing the depression-era regulation, the Glass-Steagall Act.
