United States Land of the Free, Indeed / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Woe is us. There is nary a nation state on the planet where a man can be free. The entire planet is a cobweb of governments, police, taxes, laws, rules and regulations.

It is with great sorrow that much of the population of the planet now has Stockholm syndrome. They've grown to adore and fawn after their captors. Billions flock to see their slave masters inaugurated or wed. Prince William of Wales has taken a bride, they shout! What a glorious day!

Conventional Education Will Go the Way of Farming / Politics / US Politics

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFood is vital for survival, yet less than 2 percent of America's population works in agriculture. That's a big change from 100 years ago, when over 40 percent of the workforce was toiling away on the farm. If I had been born at the start of the 20th century in Kansas, rather than at the end of the 1950s, no doubt my life would have been spent on the farm.

Why We Are Totally Finished, Corporatocracy Has Replaced Capitalism / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn A Nutshell: Corporatocracy Has Replaced Capitalism

Capitalism Fixes Problems & Preserves Democracy: Capitalism is what we should be relying on to fix our problems. Capitalism has it's own ecosystem, just like biology's ecosystem. An economic ecosystem that weeds out the weak, has parasites that eat the failures and new bacteria that evolves and grows replacements for that which failed. A system that keeps everything in balance.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy does Finland almost openly support the extremist forces opposed to Russia? This question arises increasingly more often following the latest news from Finland. Last week a criminal case was filed for inciting ethnic hatred against Finnish priest Juha Molari who dared to criticize the website "Kavkaz-Center".

Biofuel Pushes Millions of People Into Poverty / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Pravda

The growing production of bioethanol increases the shortage of food. Corn, sugar, other types of farm crops are required for the production of the biofuel. In addition, the growth of sowing for the green fuel reduces the square of lands designated for food cultures, which leads to smaller harvest and higher prices on food.

Student Loans Big Business, Underwritten by Tax Payers / Politics / US Debt

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStudent loans are a big business. In fact, student debt now exceeds $895 billion which is more than the total Americans owe on their credit cards. And, most of these loans are underwritten by the US government, which means that the taxpayer is on the hook when students can't repay the debt. This is a big problem, because many of the people taking out loans are not really qualified for college, so they end up dropping out of school and defaulting on their loans putting themselves in long-term debt while passing the bill along to Uncle Sam. But not everyone loses on the deal. In fact, the institutions that help unqualified applicants get loans, do quite well. After all, they're paid in full by the government. If this sounds like it might be a scam; it's because it is. All the recruiters need to do is find a credulous subject, bamboozle him into signing on the dotted line, and hold his hand for the first few weeks of the new semester. That's all it takes to net a big government payout. Here's a rundown of how it works from an article by Chris Kirkham at the Huffington Post:

Libya War All About Oil or Gold and Banking? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral writers have noted the odd fact that the Libyan rebels took time out from their rebellion in March to create their own central bank – this before they even had a government.  Robert Wenzel wrote in the Economic Policy Journal:

I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising.  This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences.

Obama's Deficit Plan will Impoverish Main Street America / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKevin Zeese writes: President Obama announced the outlines of his deficit plan, leaving a lot up for negotiation. He planted his poll at the center right and where he ends up, with his history of compromising to bring right wing Republicans and Democratic corporatists together, can only be worse.

Playing the Lyre of U.S. Budget Madness as the Empire Burns / Politics / Government Spending

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSARTRE writes: By Washington DC standards the just concluded budget agreement for funding the federal government through September, is a big win for Republicans. Emily Miller in Human Events describes, "The final agreement will be for $38.5 billion in cuts from current spending over the remaining six months of the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. The spending cuts, although historic in size, account for only 2.5% of this year's projected budget deficit of $1.6 trillion." Here lies the obscenity of the central government; namely, that a mere drop in the bucket reduction in a historic deficit is lauded as the great achievement of compromised negotiations.

Why Monetary Expansion Must Stop / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Barron writes: Introduction: The Illusion of Unlimited Resources

The current problems faced by all the world's economies stem, primarily, from one source: the demise of sound money, whose quantity could not be increased without significant cost, and its replacement with fiat money that can be inflated to infinite amounts at almost no cost to the producer.

The Fed Obliterates the Savings Ethic / Politics / Central Banks

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDepression babies learned early that "saving for a rainy day" was not something one hopes to do but a requirement. The saying originated when most people worked on the farm. And when it rained, the fields were too wet to plow, and the farmer — not to mention the hired hands — made no money.

Japan's Nuclear Volcano Erupts / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShares plunged across Europe and Asia on Tuesday as the crisis at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant deepened and Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency raised the atomic alert level to its highest rating. Conditions at the stricken facility have steadily deteriorated and now the station is intermittently spewing lethal amounts of radiation into the atmosphere and around the world. A French nuclear group has warned that children and pregnant mothers should protect themselves from the fallout.

The Revolving Door Between Washington and Wall Street / Politics / US Politics

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

As regular readers know, there is a fast track revolving door between Washington D.C. and Wall Street.  All part and parcel with a captured government run for a small cabal of corporations and their leadership.  After all corporations are people too - the Supreme Court says so.  There is a lengthy but insightful story in New York Magazine on the latest to make the transition from D.C. to Wall Street - Peter Orzag.  Actually the piece intertwines the fate of Robert Rubin and Orzag, but really if we're talking Rubin, Orzag, Summers, Daley, Paulson, et al - the names can simply be interchanged.

Japan's Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYoichi Shimatsu writes: Confused and often conflicting reports out of Fukushima 1 nuclear plant cannot be solely the result of tsunami-caused breakdowns, bungling or miscommunication. Inexplicable delays and half-baked explanations from Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) seem to be driven by some unspoken factor.
