By: Pravda

Revolution Handbook for Americans / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs recently presented, there is global respect for and use of the classic and brilliant work by Gene Sharp “From Dictatorship to Democracy.”  It is credited for empowering many actions around the world to overthrow dictatorships, including recent actions in the Mideast .  My thesis is that his ideas, strategies and tactics, a handbook for revolution, can and should be applied to the US where there is a form of corporate dictatorship operating.

The Logic of Outsourcing / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I wrote an article on why every business that has an in-house staff of video production specialists should shut down the department. I argued that it would be far better to encourage the staffers to create their own video production company. Then the business can let the newly created company bid on projects.

There is no question that this would be better for the business. But would it be better for the now-unemployed staffers? If they are talented, yes. If they are not, yes.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDown in the pleasure centre,
hell bent or heaven sent,
listen to the propaganda,

Social Security is Not an “Entitlement” Program / Politics / US Politics

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarti Oakley writes: A long coveted cut to Social Security and Medicare is going to happen. This will occur for reasons none of the politicians in the District of Criminals will ever speak about publicly. There is far more at stake here than what the District terms an “unfunded liability”. When you hear those in the District speak about this liability, you need to understand what they are really saying. This is an intra-governmental debt, meaning; a debt accrued within the government. It is a liability to the federal government because it is owed to “you” and they have no way of paying it back without taxing you more heavily. You are the “full faith and credit” of the United States corporation. That means government runs up the bills and we pay it.

The Gerontocracy, Workers are the Economic Slaves of Pensioners / Politics / Demographics

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJan Iwanik writes: I suspect that funded retirement plans like American 401(k)s British private pensions, or Polish open pension plans (OFE) cannot survive in a centralized democracy. The only alternatives are unfunded schemes such as American social security, British state pensions, or the Polish Social Insurance Institution (ZUS).

Bahrain Revolt Against Another US Ally / Politics / Middle East

By: Finian_Cunningham

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Have you ever seen an island with no beaches?” The question posed by the young Bahraini taxi man standing among thousands of chanting anti-government protesters seemed at first to be a bit off the wall. But his explanation soon got to the heart of the grievances that have brought tens of thousands of Bahrainis on to the streets over the past week – protests which have seen at least seven civilians killed amid scenes of excessive violence by state security forces. Unconfirmed reports put the death toll much higher.

Where’s the American Outrage Against U.S. Support of Dictatorships? / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Jacob G. Hornberger writes: Once it became clear that Egypt’s dictator Hosni Mubarak was on the way out, U.S. officials quickly shifted gears and took the side of the demonstrators, the people who had suffered for 30 years under the brutal Mubarak dictatorship. U.S. officials even offered their guidance for moving Egypt toward a democratic political system.

Is The World Really Running Out Of Food, Water And Oil? / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEverywhere you look today the mainstream news is talking about shortages. Authorities all over the globe are boldly proclaiming that the world is rapidly running out of food, water and oil. So are these doomsayers right? Well, it must be noted that some of the most famous "prophets of doom" of the past several decades have seen their predictions fail spectacularly. For example, in his infamous 1968 book entitled "The Population Bomb", Paul Ehrlich made the following statement: "I don't see how India could possibly feed two hundred million more people by 1980."

Wall Street and the Financial Crisis: Nobody Goes to Jail - And Therein Lies the Problem / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Jesse

It all comes back to the credibility trap, much more intractable than a liquidity trap. The US government cannot perform effective change without admitting the corruption and placing the powerful status quo at risk. So this malaise and period of selective recovery will continue until there is a another, more destructive crisis.
