The Coming U.S. Federal Collapse / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Gary North has noted, the great 21st century default of the U.S. government has already started, with the raiding of federal pension funds to stay solvent a few months ago. We may recall the 2000 presidential election, when Al Gore spoke favorably about creating a social security "lockbox," even as Social Security "taxes" had been treated for years as a core part of the federal budget, simple annual "income" for the state.

Murdoch Heads for a Fall / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBoy, this is about as sleazy as it gets....

Imagine that your 13-year old daughter has been kidnapped and you have no idea where she is. So you frantically call her cell phone over and over clinging to the faint hope that she might still be alive. And, then, a miracle happens; you notice that messages on her phone have been deleted signalling that she's still alive but unable to call back.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Negotiations, Don't be Fooled by Political Posturing / Politics / US Debt

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs attention focuses intently on the negotiations to raise the debt ceiling, House Republicans have made a great show of drawing a line in the fiscal sand. They claim that they will not vote for any deal that includes tax increases to narrow the budget deficit. But we all know how the game works in Washington. With the 2012 elections looming the Republican bluster is merely a bargaining chip that they will quickly toss into the pot when they sense a political victory. In fact there are signs that such a compromise is already underway.

Egypt vs IMF: Time to Debt Default? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Eric_Walberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial flip-flop of Egypt’s revolutionary government, first requesting and then declining a $3 billion dollar IMF loan, highlights Egypt’s hard choices at this point in the revolution, but is a good sign.

It is no secret that Egypt has put all its faith in the US and Western international institutions since the days of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, contracting a huge foreign debt, a process that was increasingly corrupt, despite being careful watched over by those very agencies. This debt is financed by foreign banks, and must be repaid in dollars -- with interest. If much of the money they create and then “lend” is siphoned off into Swiss bank accounts, that is Egypt’s problem. No one is trying to charge the people who gave Mubarak or his henchmen their money and then let them re-deposit it with them, but it takes two to tango.

Despite Fukushima, Russia's Nuclear Industry is Open for Business / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

Japan's 11 March catastrophe at its six-reactor Daichi Fukushima nuclear power complex has had global repercussions, hardly surprising given the trillions of dollars invested in civilian nuclear energy over the last five decades. Ironically, just a year ago the nuclear power industry saw itself on the verge of a renaissance, with worldwide concerns about global warming causing many to reconsider the merits of nuclear energy, which produces no greenhouse gases.

Tax Rises Could Save the U.S. Economy From Debt Default Bankruptcy / Politics / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: As the debt-ceiling debate escalates, U.S President Barack Obama says federal tax increases are necessary to close the U.S. budget deficit.

Although Republicans then said that tax hikes were "off the table," this statement is reminiscent of a toddler who threatens to hold his breath until he turns blue if you make him eat spinach.

Economy, Markets, Energy Supplies and Geopolitics Feels Like its 1979 / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt feels like 1979 all over again: the US, European and Japanese economies are in the doldrums, gold and oil prices are high and rising, friendly Middle East and Arab dictators are falling. In the White House things are also in flashback: the charismatic new Democrat preaching clean energy and climate catastrophe mantras is as unsuccessful as Jimmy Carter at winning the public around.    Can Obama succeed where Carter did not?

Piracy: A Growing Global Menace / Politics / Global Economy

By: OilPrice_Com

Over the last few years, thanks largely to Hollywood's "pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, maritime buccaneers have acquired a highly romantic image.

The reality of modern piracy is far removed from the images peddled by Tinseltown. In the most recent nautical attack, Somali pirates on 6 July attacked the 900-foot Brillante Virtuoso, which was carrying over 141,000 tons of fuel oil from Ukraine to Qingdao, China, 20 miles off the Yemeni port of Aden. The vessel's 26 crew members abandoned ship after the attackers fired an RPG round into their sleeping quarters.

The Political Tide Against the Ratings Agencies / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bane of our pseudo-capitalistic system is the blatant double standard that is upheld with respect to prices. If the money prices of things go up, that’s ok, and the saint behind this wholesome circumstance is typically elevated to greatness. However, if the money prices of things go down, there’s got to be a bad guy somewhere — and boy does he get hanged, drawn and quartered in the town square.

War on Terror is a $6 Trillion Racket, Exceeding Total Cost of WWII / Politics / US Politics

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Obama launched his re-election propaganda campaign to trick the American public into thinking that he intends to end the Af-Pak War, he said that the “War on Terror” has cost $1 trillion over the past decade. While that is a staggering amount of money, he was being deceitful once again.

America Can Restore Liberty With Three Short Laws / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet us assume that at some point in the future, Congress will pass and the President will sign three bills. These three laws would strip power from the United States government on a scale inconceivable even to the Tea Party's hard core members. They would be very short laws.

The United States Government hereby abolishes the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and all subsequent laws relating to that Act.
