Occupy Wall Street: Is It Really The 99%? / Politics / US Politics

By: EconMatters

It looks like the initial public support and sympathy for Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is starting to wear thin.  From CNBC:

"Occupy Wall Street may claim small-business owners as members of the 99 percent, but from Oakland, Calif., to New York, many local enterprises are asking the protesters to pack up.  

....the problem with the movement is that it is not hurting the big banks, but rather, it is hurting the small-business owners that are fighting to survive in a recession, says small-business owner Carol Bloom Stevens."

The Financial Crisis Coup Continues / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarly last December, I wrote a piece entitled ‘Crisis or Coup?’ in which the anatomy of the 2008 financial crisis was analyzed in further detail and some conclusions drawn. These conclusions were drawn based on facts and actions, not opinions. It was obvious at the time that the USFed and our own government were acting not in the best interests of the people, but rather in the best interests of banks and large corporations. Crony capitalism, as it has often been called - where profits are kept and losses are written off or passed on to the ‘Plebeians’ of a particular society - ramped into high gear in the US. Remember the fact that the absurd financial structure that is in place was the ‘solution’ to a crisis, which had the fingerprints of the solution providers all over it.

We Must Crush the Army of Krugmanites into Submission - Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Nouriel Roubini, Martin Wolf / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo days ago, Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf made an attempt at Thinking through the unthinkable. The "unthinkable" was the breakup of the Eurozone.

Reflections on the Easily Thinkable

For starters, a eurozone breakup is hardly unthinkable given that no currency union in history has ever survived in the absence of a fiscal union, and the Eurozone has no such fiscal union

By: DK_Matai

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year of this century, we remember those who died in the two great wars so that we could all live freely.  Just contemplate the super-symmetry and synchronicity of 11/11/11 at 11 o'clock.  A hundred years will pass before that synchronicity will repeat.  Will the legacy of those world wars still haunt us then?

To Get Really Rich, Get Elected / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic Collapse writes: Do you want to get rich? Just get elected to Congress. The U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives are absolutely packed with wealthy people that are very rapidly becoming even wealthier. The collective net worth of the members of Congress is now measured in the billions of dollars. The people that we have elected to the House and Senate are absolutely swimming in money. Unfortunately, it is not easy to get elected to Congress. In this day and age you generally have to be heavily connected to those that are very wealthy to get into Congress because it takes gigantic amounts of cash to win campaigns. But if you can get in to the club, you pretty much have it made. The numbers that you are about to read are very difficult to believe and they should deeply sadden you. They show that Congress has become all about money. Congressional races are mostly financed by wealthy people, most of the people that we elect to Congress are very wealthy, and they rapidly get wealthier after they are elected. All of this money has turned our republic into something far different than our founding fathers intended.

The High Cost of Nuclear Energy Freedom from Fossil Fuels / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Walter_Brasch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor a few hours on the afternoon of Nov. 1, the people of southern California were scared by initial reports of an alert at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. An “alert” is the second of four warning levels.

Workers first detected an ammonia leak in a water purification system about 3 p.m. Ammonia, when mixed into air, is toxic. The 30 gallons of ammonia were caught in a holding tank and posed no health risk, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NRC).

Smart Meters and Dumb Technocrats / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt a time when public debt and deficits are out of control in the straight majority of OECD countries it is almost touching that "energy crisis" still has a bit-part role in state and corporate attempts at finding new ways to extract money from consumers and waste money on corporate kleptocrats. One of the biggest current attempts is the Smart Grid-Super Grid duo. While the second is almost pure fantasy, both technologically and financially, the first seems to offer attractive potential for gouging extra revenue from electricity consumers, to "Save the Planet" by swelling electric power company revenues and generating big ticket corporate spending on high tech gimmicks - 'Smart' Meters.

Europe, the International System and a Generational Shift / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChange in the international system comes in large and small doses, but fundamental patterns generally stay consistent. From 1500 to 1991, for example, European global hegemony constituted the world’s operating principle. Within this overarching framework, however, the international system regularly reshuffles the deck in demoting and promoting powers, fragmenting some and empowering others, and so on. Sometimes this happens because of war, and sometimes because of economic and political forces. While the basic structure of the world stays intact, the precise way it works changes.

Ron Paul on President Obama Taking Executive Orders Too Far / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

These are frustrating times for the President. Having been swept into office with a seemingly strong mandate, he enjoyed a Congress controlled by members of his own party for the first two years of his term. However, midterm elections brought gridlock and a close division of power between the two parties. With a crucial re-election campaign coming up, there is desperation in the president's desire to "do something" in spite of his severely weakened mandate.

A True Greek Tragedy - Odyssey of the EU / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe cradle of democracy is under attack. The Inherent Autonomy of the human spirit is at stake. What was won at the Battle of Thermopylae, was lost in the banksters board rooms that control the EU. The fluidity of this definitive game of chicken, poses the beheading of the rooster and the scorching of all the hens. This journey into Land of the Lotus Eaters, not only needs to blind Polyphemus, but must destroy his New World Order father, Poseidon. The designed destruction of democratic authority is meant to eliminate any referendum on the EU despotism. The phony debt instruments caused the Greek default, that will soon spread the planetary misery, on the rest of us. Western civilization’s birth, owes homage to the Greek principle of individual autonomy. Its demise is a product of the inherent betrayal of humanity by the forces of financial exploitation, that exemplifies 1 Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.

Democracy Isn't Dead Yet, Just the Euro as Greece Debt Crisis Epicentre Shifting to Italy / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Canned laughter" is frequently used on TV shows to create the illusion of soothing, comedic value in the minds of the show’s viewers. Anyone who has watched a show with "canned laughter" is familiar with the logic. One of the characters says something or another that isn’t very interesting or funny, the laugh-track comes on and then we find ourselves forcing a smile or snicker as an almost "unconscious" reaction. Almost, but not quite, because many times we are still forced to face our participation in this contrived reality after the fact.
