By: Dr_Ron_Paul

US Myth Of The Two Party Political System / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCindy Sheehan  Would America look much different if Republican John McCain had beaten Democrat Barack Obama to become president?

"The two-party system has given this country the war of Lyndon Johnson, the Watergate of Nixon and the incompetence of Carter. Saying we    should keep the two-party system simply because it is working is like saying the Titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life rafts."—Eugene J. McCarthy, 1978

Video Proof that Obama's Economic Stimulus Has Worked / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

For months you've heard GOP blowhards repeat over-and-over again that Obama's stimulus was "a waste of money" and "did nothing". And--all the while--administration wussies have hemmed-and-hawed trying their best to sweep the stimulus under the rug terrified that it would cost them precious votes in the upcoming midterms.

Should the Cost of War Include Interest Payments? / Politics / US Politics

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen tallying up the "total costs" of a government operation, proponents will typically include only the most obvious items, whereas opponents will throw in the kitchen sink. The obvious motivation is to make the operation look relatively cheap (for the proponents) or horribly expensive (for the opponents).

Interpreting Daily Show Jon Stewart's Politics / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAny criticism of Jon Stewart must begin with enthusiastic praise: his Daily Show is where millions of people go for important news that is purposely ignored by the mainstream media. Consequently, both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have become icons of the political Left.

American Politics is a Cash And Carry Business / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York: We live in a country in economic distress. Millions are out of work and cutbacks in public services are pervasive at the city and state levels. The ‘great recession’ is deep and could go deeper. Most families are tightening their belts and in some cases at the breaking point because their benefits have run out and money is so hard for many to find.

The Global Monetary System is in Crisis / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recognition of currency war, which has been going on for years, reflects the failure of international cooperation and the failure the G-20 to find a solution of the beggar-thy-neighbor policies of almost every nation. The result has been growing geopolitical dislocation, which G-20 has yet to find a solution for. These efforts, until recently, were turned upside down by the failure of the Copenhagen Summit in the summer of 2009, when it was discovered that global warming was a giant scam.

Economic Law Dooms The Police State / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am perceived by many readers as a pessimist. I am not a pessimist. I am an optimist beyond your wildest imagination. I am an eschatological postmillennialist. There are not many of us. I am also a believer in the free market social order – not just in its superiority in theory, but in its inevitable triumph in history. I believe that Leonard E. Read's book title is correct: Then Truth Will Out.

Time for a New Theory of Money / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe reason our financial system has routinely gotten into trouble, with periodic waves of depression like the one we’re battling now, may be due to a flawed perception not just of the roles of banking and credit but of the nature of money itself. In our economic adolescence, we have regarded money as a “thing”—something independent of the relationship it facilitates. But today there is no gold or silver backing our money. Instead, it’s created by banks when they make loans (that includes Federal Reserve Notes or dollar bills, which are created by the Federal Reserve, a privately-owned banking corporation, and lent into the economy). Virtually all money today originates as credit, or debt, which is simply a legal agreement to pay in the future.

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Corbett writes: Earlier this month, the United States Coast Guard upheld its self-declared status as a 'special' branch of the military with the ability to prosecute civilians in military tribunals. This startling declaration, unreported in the media, came in a Decision on Appeal related to the case of Lieutenant Eric Shine, a commissioned Naval officer in the Merchant Marines and a graduate of Kings Point Military Service Academy, and was penned by the Vice Commandant of the Coast Guard. The decision can be downloaded and read here.

Inflation, Food Crisis, Climate Change, The Rising Cost of Survival / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSocio-economic turmoil - lawlessness, poverty, lack of adequate medical facilities and attention, low to no employment, low wages, disease, no clean drinking water or water for irrigation and shortages of food or unaffordable food can all cause socio-economic pressure to build in many countries that were once stable environments for investment.

In 2007 and 2008 roughly 40 food riots occurred - two of the more publicized examples were when people took to the streets after rising corn prices made tortillas very expensive in Mexico and skyrocketing food prices in Haiti led to the overthrow of that country's Prime Minister.

The Shifting Financial Sands of Wealth Distribution / Politics / Social Issues

By: Barry_Elias

1913, the Federal Reserve Bank was created and the 16th amendment to the constitution was passed. This amendment provided Congress with the legal authority to tax.

At that time, the share of income earned by the top 1 percent, 0.1 percent, and 0.01 percent were 18.5 percent, 10 percent, and 4.4 percent, respectively. In 1980, these figures were dramatically reduced to 9 percent, 1 percent, and 0.5 percent, but by 2007 they increased significantly to 23.5 percent, 8.5 percent, and 3.0 percent (at or above 1913 levels).
