We Can’t Just Compensate Free Trade’s Losers / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

It is sometimes argued that although free trade has some victims, its benefits exceed its costs, so it is possible for its winners to compensate its losers out of their gains, everyone thereby coming out ahead in the end.

This is, in fact, the usual fallback position of mainstream economists once they admit that free trade has drawbacks. (They don't usually admit to civilians there are drawbacks, but press them even moderately hard and they'll usually 'fess up.)

Extraordinary Events in the Middle East and the Coming Global Tsunami / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe extraordinary events in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya are the initial high tides of an eventual tsunami that will impact the world that globalists have so fervently promoted for decades, in ways not necessarily to their liking. The first wave has struck and is now retreating from the shore, but will shortly return with redoubled force, and what and who will be swept away and what will be left standing is anyone's guess.

U.S. Defense Secretary Gates is Wrong, Never Fight a Land War in Asia / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, speaking at West Point, said last week that “Any future defense secretary who advises the president to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or Africa should have his head examined.” In saying this, Gates was repeating a dictum laid down by Douglas MacArthur after the Korean War, who urged the United States to avoid land wars in Asia.

Population Reduction Through Designed Economic Collapse / Politics / Demographics

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Galt writes: In case you haven’t noticed, the great culling of humanity is taking place right now. Unfortunately, preparation needs to begin for two gloomy scenarios: slow economic collapse, or catastrophic demolition.

According to the elite's own admission, Corporation Earth is bankrupt and bloated and must be downsized. In other words, that which mathematically cannot continue, will not continue; and it's time to cut the fat.

Environmental Disaster Preparedness, Five Things Every American Should Do, But Won’t / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDennis Evers writes: We’ve all seen him on the news. The guy buying plywood, beer, chips and other survival essentials as the approaching hurricane can be seen over his shoulder in the distance.

Unfortunately, the majority of Americans aren’t much better when it comes to being prepared for emergencies. However, recent disasters have proven that the sheer magnitude of an event can overwhelm relief efforts, coupled with cutbacks in personnel, budgets and equipment, place the onus squarely on our shoulders.

India On The Verge Of A Revolution For Corruptions / Politics / India

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRaju M. Mathew writes: Land of the billionaires and the Very Poor - In India, the benefit of liberalization, globalization, privatization of public enterprises, the infrastructure development with public money and the overall economic growth have been hijacked by a dozen families and their corporate houses. During the last fifteen years, they could virtually grab between 60 to 70 per cent of the natural, industrial, air and technological wealth of India, keeping over 80 of the population under poverty line. Now India has some of the richest billionaires on earth.

Middle East Protests Continue for People's Unmet Demands / Politics / Middle East

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far, weeks of regional protests achieved nothing. Despite ousting Egypt's Mubarak and Tunisia's Ben Ali, their regimes remain in place, offering nothing but unfulfilled promises.

On February 26, Egyptians again protested in Tahrir Square. This time, however, military forces confronted them, Reuters headlining, "Egypt military angers protesters with show of force," saying:

"Soldiers used force on Saturday to break up a protest demanding more political reform in Egypt, demonstrators said, in the toughest move yet against opposition activists who accused the country's military rulers of 'betraying the people.' "

America's Total Surveillance Society / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2003, an ACLU report warned that "Big Brother" no longer is fiction, America having advanced to where total surveillance is now possible. Barry Steinhardt, Director of the ACLU's Technology and Liberty Program said:

"Given the capabilities of today's technology, the only thing protecting us from a full-fledged surveillance society are the legal and political institutions we have inherited as Americans. Unfortunately, the September 11 attacks have led some to embrace the fallacy that weakening the Constitution will strengthen America."

Bankers Using Divide and Conquer Strategies in America to Deflect Blame / Politics / US Politics

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global bankers, who caused our economic crisis, are attempting to deflect blame and divide the American public by escalating attacks on public-sector workers. The battle in Wisconsin, which is spreading across the entire nation, should be viewed in a global economic context. Do not let the obsolete Republican vs. Democrat charade confuse you. Even if you believe Unions have been corrupted, in this case you have to go with the strategy: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Pension Lies Lead to Riots / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn truth, almost all pensions are a lie.

The pension that comes to mind for most of us in the US is Social Security. A tax is deducted from our paychecks to fund the pension. By law, when the program takes in more than it pays out (as it did from 1982 thru 2009), it has to loan the excess to the federal government. The federal government is obligated to pay this amount back with interest when the program faces a shortfall. In 2010, it faced a shortfall. It is expected to face a shortfall in 2011. In addition to all its other debt, the federal Government now owes the Social Security Trust Fund (the account to which surpluses are loaned) some $2.5 trillion dollars. Surpluses are projected to return for the next few years but then from 2015 on, the program is expected to face deficits.

The Arab Revolt And The Failed Nuclear Subprime Rout / Politics / Middle East

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMAD – MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION
Top and bottom or truth and beauty quarks interest nuclear physicists, but the mutually assured destruction of both the top and bottom, North and South parts of the global economy came very close, and was even programmed until end December 2010. Using the lever of nuclear power and financial assets generated around them, the intended mechanism featured a massive finance bubble driven by a construction spree of new, industry standard, Chernobyl-sized (900 MW and over) reactors right across the Southern emerging and developing countries, through 2010-2020.

Uncertainty in the Arab Street and Rising Food Costs / Politics / Middle East

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvents in Arabia have been sending flutters through the market.  Egypt, by far the largest Arab state, has shifted into a virtuous economic growth cycle confirming it as an important emerging market regional centre.  That said, it continues to have a high population growth and economic expansion has to be high to maintain current wealth levels.  As street demonstrations go, these haven't been all that chaotic given they lack a pro rallying point.  It is hard to say just what a growing Arab middle class will want beyond a say in its own governance.  It was that middle class that first called for political change, but the poor who are trying to cope with rising food costs have also joined in.  Both deserve some consideration.

Yes We Can! (Fix Our Trade Mess) / Politics / US Politics

By: Ian_Fletcher

The fashionable despair of America fixing its trade mess is a mistake.
For example, the standard objection to taking a stick to America's trade imbalance by levying a tariff is that our trading partners would just shrug it off by increasing subsidies to their exporters. (They do something similar to this already: China, for example, is constantly adjusting its export subsidies to protect its positions in foreign markets.) This would, supposedly, force us into an endless game of matching these moves on a country-by-country, industry-by-industry, and even product-by-product basis.
