That Speeding Freight Train You Hear is the Next Financial Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mainstream financial media are running stories on the next financial crisis. This is unheard of two years into a so-called economic recovery. So weak is this recovery that the old pre-2008 confidence has not returned.

The first sign that "this time, it's different," was Treasury Secretary Geithner's statement, which received widespread coverage, that there will be another crisis.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI just had a conversation with constitutional lawyer and monetary expert Dr. Edwin Vieira. I first became acquainted with Dr. Vieira, who holds four degrees from Harvard and has extensive experience arguing cases before the Supreme Court, at our recent Casey Research Summit in Boca Raton, where he spoke on how far off the constitutional rails the nation has traveled. Here is a summary of what he told me…

America in Dire of a Mental Paradigm Shift Towards a Simpler Life - “A New Mission” / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA sabbatical is usually a good thing as it gives a nice opportunity to take a step back, assess, reassess, and potentially relax. I’ve enjoyed the past few months away as I took time to do the above and also to try to impart a little common sense and perhaps some wisdom on the up and coming generation regarding economics, the study thereof, and more importantly, the dire consequences of failing to recognize and follow basic economic laws.

U.S. Politicians Engaged in Ongoing Sabotage Of Financial Reform / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome years back Thomas Franck nailed it in his book, “The Wrecking Crew.” It was subtitled “How Conservatives Rule” and showed how narrow self-interest and well practiced cynicism in the service of partisan warfare has crippled our political system resulting in a deep paralysis despite the threat of a collapse.

I call it sabotage, a tactic that goes way back and involves deliberate effort to insure that reforms are effectively undermined.

Is the White House Up for Grabs? / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBarack Obama figured his reelection was in the bag. All he had to do was throw the progressive wing of his party a bone by pulling a few thousand troops out of Afghanistan, and then wait for the economy to gradually get stronger. What could be easier? 2012 would be a romp. He never thought that his chief economic advisor, Lawrence Summers, might have misjudged the severity of the downturn or that all those pesky "lefty" economists (Stiglitz, Baker, Reich, Thoma, Krugman etc) were right in pushing for more fiscal stimulus. After all, what did they know? Most of them would have supported another W.P.A. if they were given half a chance. Good luck slipping that by the deficit hawks in congress! Besides Wall Street wants "austerity"; so austerity it is. You don't get reelected by rocking the boat.

Financial Reform Follies: JPMorgan's Dimon Shows Why Washington Does Not Get it / Politics / Market Regulation

(NYSE: JPM) Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon drove home a crucial point: The U.S. version of "financial reform" just doesn't work.

The Soros Effect: The Market’s Clear Rejection of Authority / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

George Soros has broken central banks, built a billion dollar fortune, and awarded himself fans around the world who adore his no-nonsense speculative approach.  While he was once a kingpin of the financial markets, he took a backseat years ago to step away from his Quantum fund, only to return to an audience that has long gone.

Fraudulent Fractional Reserve Banking Operations Means That There are No Safe Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOccasionally, we see an official attempt at a serious discussion of what Federal Reserve System economists would like the public to believe is safe banking. This means safe fractional reserve banking. This means fraudulent safe banking. This means fantasy banking.

All fractional reserve banking rests on a legal promise: you can get your money out at any time. Yet the money that you deposit is loaned out by the bank. This means that your money is gone. Then how can you withdraw it at any time? Only if (1) the money is loaned out on a "repay instantly on demand" basis, or (2) hardly anyone will demand withdrawal at the same time. The bank will pay you out of its tiny slush fund for withdrawals. The first option assumes that the debtor is always in a position to repay at any time, which is of course ludicrous for most corporate and business borrowers. They will not agree to such terms. The second option is equally ludicrous during a banking crisis.

The Republicrats One-Party Police State / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany years ago I listened to a detailed discussion by Ralph Nader and his team of legal advisors at a Book Fair on C-Span about why they had no chance of winning a presidential election. Simply put, they could not legally get on the ballots in enough states even with their immense teams of lawyers because the Republicans and Democrats had cooperated in passing a mass of complex, variable laws that created endless loopholes and obstructions at the state levels to make sure that no outsider like Ross Perot, even with billions of dollars, could ever again get on enough state ballots to win at the presidential level. I already knew that in general, but it was good to have such insider experience confirming my findings over the years.
