Tourism Resorts and Crude Oil Exploration in the Caspian Sea / Politics / Crude Oil

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSITUATION: One indirect consequence of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is the impact it may have on the financing of the many tourism projects that have sprouted along the Caspian Sea. Bordered clockwise from the North by Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia, the Caspian Sea is one of the largest bodies of water and an object of strategic ambitions. Though the global financial crisis put may grandiose Caspian Sea tourism projects on hold, some of them are coming back to life, but investors should be alert to tourism trends, corruption, and unanswered questions about demand and potential profit.

Was TARP Good for the Taxpayers? / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Robert_Murphy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Sunday the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) officially expired, though its "legacy programs" could continue for years. Lately there has been a growing campaign to tout the success of TARP, Henry Paulson's extremely controversial plan to use (originally) $700 billion of taxpayer money to save the financial system. Despite this chorus of praise, the TARP bailout was a terrible idea that will cost taxpayers both directly and indirectly through its perverse incentives.

The Liquefied Natural Gas Cartel Idea: On the Road to Another OPEC? / Politics / Natural Gas

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs oil sees its image tarnished from the disastrous oil spills that took place off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and off the coast of Dalian, China, and as the most promising oil fields remain off limit to the Western oil majors, gas is gaining in popularity.

Gas is present in large quantities and in many countries of less questionable reputation such as in the United States and is also less harmful to the environment than oil. Though gas is not intended to replace oil, some gas-rich countries such as Russia and Iran are strongly advocating for a gas cartel to regulate the industry, which can explain the reluctance of Russia to adopt sanctions towards Iran at the United Nations as both countries heavily rely on the income generated by their natural resources.

Will South African Gold Mines be Nationalized? / Politics / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe argument that South African mines will be nationalized stems from Julius Malema, the head of the Youth League of the ANC. It has been rumbling on for some time now. Mrs. Shabangu the Mines Minister previously stated that it would not happen in her lifetime. This was ignored by the Youth League who held to their position. At that time it was not on the Agenda of the ANC and was treated with a measure of derision by the ANC. Then the ANC conference happened and the ANC placed the issue on the Agenda to be discussed in 2012.

Washington’s Latest Terror Warning / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

I believe America today is trapped inside a nightmare dystopian novel combining the worst of Brave New World and George Orwell’s 1984 where we are forced to endure perpetual war, pervasive surveillance and constant attempts at public mind control. The term "Pavlov’s dog" usually describes the conditioning of individuals or a population who merely react to a repeated situation rather than using critical thinking.

Free Markets Create Jobs / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

In this struggling economy it is essential for politicians to take a step back and think about what government has been doing to business in this country. In less than 200 years, the free market, property rights, and respect for the rule of law took this nation from a rough frontier to a global economic superpower. Today, however, our nation and our economy clearly are headed in the wrong direction.

Financial Warfare and the Failure of US Military Leadership / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Damon Vrabel writes: The "War on Terror" has become the most successful military diversion in history, having lasted twice as long as WWII so far. While the US and other countries are under severe attack by financial powers through the corporate system and the currency and bond markets, the US military is convinced that people living in remote deserts are the threat. So they’re busy killing some of the poorest people in the world while the country is being attacked by the richest. On the one hand, this is a more impressive Machiavellian chess move than the Calais diversion in WWII that opened up the Normandy attack that would seal Germany’s fate. On the other, it’s just embarrassing to see how easily millions of grown adults can be fooled in the face of the obvious.
