Occupy Wall Street and the End of Crony Capitalism / Politics / US Politics

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOccupy Wall Street demonstrations are sweeping the globe. Universally, demonstrators recognize that there is something fundamentally flawed with the current system of international political economy. Most interesting, the left and the right agree on a few key issues. For decades, big business has bought and paid for political favors that have undermined the system, rotting the foundation of international free market capitalism. Hard work, individual responsibility and accountability are now optional. Just reward for success and the consequences of failure are now subject to political caprice. A civilization built on essential but abandoned principles is coming apart at the seams.

The U.S. Is Headed for Revolution, as Debt Slaves Whisper Treason / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Nothing much from the markets yesterday. The Dow fell 72 points. Gold went down $5.

Meanwhile, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement goes on in America. And 70,000 Greeks “clash with police,” say the news headlines.

The Arrogance of France, Sarkozy Fights Merkel and ECB / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "Merkozy" coalition is one again in open dispute with itself. German chancellor Angela Merkel has one position and French President Nicolas Sarkozy another.

Historically, Sarkozy's disputes with Merkel have always been resolved with Merkel buckling like corn flakes run over by a cement truck.

Eurozone on the Edge of Chaos: Illusion of Hope & Misaligned Expectations / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial markets appear to be oblivious to the scale of danger associated with the Eurozone skirting on the "Edge of Chaos.”  The consequences of that event horizon are likely to be sudden and far from benign.  Lord Wolfson -- chief executive of Next and a Conservative life peer -- has declared that working out how to handle a break-up of the eurozone "is a very big question."

A Night With Occupy Wall Street / Politics / US Politics

By: Rudy_Avizius

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA call went out over the Internet stating that the city of New York was preparing  to “clean” the park where the Occupy Wall St protests were taking place and that the protestors would have to leave the park. The occupiers were cognizant that this was a thinly veiled attempt to evict them from the park. They asked for people to converge on the park to defend it from the NYPD who would be charged with clearing it.

Occupy Wall Street, A Lesson in Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst I’d like to start off saying that Saturday was one of the most invigorating and inspiring days of my life. I came back from NYC with hope that the young people of this country, with the help of some members of the older generations that care about the future of this country, have the will and the fortitude to sweep away the existing corrupt corporate fascist state that exists in this country today. It was such a whirlwind day that my narrative is unlikely to have much structure. I’ll just unleash everything I can remember.

The Power of Self Assembling Dynamic Networks / Politics / Social Issues

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleATCA 5000 only made one forecast for 2011: Beware "Self-Assembling Dynamic Networks" and boundary-less tribalism! Little did we realise when making the forecast that this year would see:

a. The Arab Spring from Tunisia to Egypt, from Libya to Syria, and from Bahrain to Yemen;
b. Unprecedented riots and looting in London and other British cities like Manchester and Birmingham;
c. Luxury automobiles of the elite being set alight in Berlin and other German cities like D�sseldorf and Hamburg;

Your Country is Dying... And It Wants To Take You With It / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are nearing the end of the grand experiment in nation-states, democracy and socialism.  In case you hadn't noticed, it failed miserably.  Hundreds of millions were killed in wars engendered by nation states and made possible by fiat currencies and countless more were impoverished by the central banks instituted by the state.  Riots and protests around the globe from Rome, to Egypt to nearly every major city in the US now attest to that.

Practical Approach to Earthquake and Global Warming / Politics / Climate Change

By: Submissions

Vimal Patel  writes: A Practical approach to predict Earthquakes and Record High temperatures across Earth.

I was perplexed with the amount of pointless literature published on web about Global Warming and earthquakes
So I sought a commonsense approach to solve this riddle. The theory below explains why earthquakes are happening in such a great magnitude and record high temperatures across the Planet. I came across this almost 2 years ago and published on web after March 12th Earthquake in Japan.

For Europe, Breaking Up Is a Hard Thing to Do / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone is looking with horror at Europe, waiting for the European Economic and Monetary Union to break up and for the PIIGS to start dropping like flies, taking the rest of the euro zone and the global economy with them. Unlikely!

European monetary union was a great experiment that made a lot of sense on paper. Europe, which had roughly the same size population and economy as the U.S., was at a competitive disadvantage, as dozens of currencies embedded extra transaction costs in cross-border trade and each currency separately had little chance to compete with the U.S. dollar for reserve currency status. Germany — the largest country in Europe and one of the world’s biggest exporters — was at a disadvantage too: The strong deutsche mark made its products more expensive and less competitive in the rest of Europe

The Average Decrease Of Global Warming / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite record high summer temperatures in several northern hemisphere countries, and the hottest September for over 70 years in some, political and mainstream media defenders of the one and only correct theory - Global Warming - have been slow off the mark. As yet, the "Told you so" reports and statements are low on the ground. Is Global Warming going down the tube, where it belongs ?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been staring incredulously at my TV screen these past few hours as the story of Iran’s alleged assassination attempt of a Saudi diplomat in Washington unfolds in dramatic increments.

Electric Cars: Why Did They Fail ? / Politics / Technology

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnybody who says "They havent yet failed - because they havent yet started" only has to check out the short and born-to-fail history of Hydrogen Cars, circa 1998-2005. During that opportunity window for a wonderful new car which would save oil and could save the planet, only badly intentioned and cynical members of the human race could say out loud that Hydrogen Cars were born to fail. Other people, being politically correct or only stupid, said H2 Cars were born to win. But from about 2003 or a bit later the news was out: it was OK and alright to say Hydrogen Cars won't work. Not only high priced, energy inefficient and overweight, but also downright and extremely dangerous - literal bombs-onwheels made for the Bearded One in a Cave who now reposes at the bottom of the Iranian Gulf, off Oman, by decision of Mr. Obama - who of course loves EVs.
