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.

Fed QE2 Inflation Fuels Global Fury and Rage / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Mark_Thornton

The Federal Reserve has been busy the last three months pumping up the money supply by $300 billion dollars, with much more promised in the months ahead. Some of the results have been painfully predictable, others less so.

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.

Restoring Economic Sovereignty: The Push for State-owned Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"It is time to declare economic sovereignty from the multinational banks that are responsible for much of our current economic crisis.   Every year we ship over a billion dollars in Oregon taxpayer dollars to out-of-state and multinational banks in the form of deposits, only to see that money invested elsewhere. It's time to put our money to work for Oregonians."-- Bill Bradbury, former Oregon Senate President and Secretary of State, quoted in The Nation

Geithner's Failed Makeover of the U.S. Housing Finance Market / Politics / US Housing

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo counter the increasing demands that government reduce its micromanagement of the economy, last week the Obama Administration offered a fig leaf in the form of a white paper entitled "Reforming America's Housing Finance Market." In addition to marking the official end of the Bush era "ownership society," where increasing the level of home ownership was a national priority, the document contains a recommended regulatory overhaul of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (together known as Government Sponsored Enterprises "GSE's"), that intends to bring the share of government owned home loans from the current 95% to 40% over the next 5-7 years.

How to Win an Election / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his superb analysis of democracy, Hans-Hermann Hoppe observes that "prime ministers and presidents are selected for their proven efficiency as morally uninhibited demagogues. Thus, democracy virtually assures that only bad and dangerous men will ever rise to the top of government."[1] Those who seek political office appear to be eager to break the moral code that most of us are willing to follow. The greater the power of the political office that a candidate is seeking, the more likely it is that that individual has no sense of right and wrong.

Don't Be Fooled By Washington's U.S. Debt Ceiling Debate / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: I have to tell you that - as a former international merchant banker - I want to laugh out loud when I hear the dire predictions of how the United States will have to default if Congress doesn't raise the nation's debt ceiling.

With a little Wall Street-style creative financing - even when the government's outstanding debt level reaches the official limit of $14.3 trillion sometime around the end of March - there's no reason why the country can't go on borrowing as if nothing has changed.

Deception at the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

For the past three decades, the Federal Reserve has been given a dual mandate: keeping prices stable and maximizing employment. This policy relies not only on the fatal conceit of believing in the wisdom of supposed experts, but also on numerical chicanery.

Egypt, The Distance Between Enthusiasm and Reality / Politics / Middle East

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Feb. 11, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned. A military council was named to govern in his place. On Feb. 11-12, the crowds that had gathered in Tahrir Square celebrated Mubarak’s fall and the triumph of democracy in Egypt. On Feb. 13, the military council abolished the constitution and dissolved parliament, promising a new constitution to be ratified by a referendum and stating that the military would rule for six months, or until the military decides it’s ready to hold parliamentary and presidential elections.

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"And the great owners, who must lose their land in an upheaval, the great owners with access to history, with eyes to read history and to know the great fact: when property accumulates in too few hands it is taken away. And that companion fact: when a majority of the people are hungry and cold they will take by force what they need. And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen and knit the repressed." - John Steinbeck - Grapes of Wrath

Britain’s Bankers Given a Free Rein by Government’s Project Merlin / Politics / UK Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJulie Hyland writes: The manoeuvres by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat government with the banks express the cynicism and contempt towards working people characteristic of the ruling elite throughout the financial crisis.

Last week, the government unveiled Project Merlin—the outcome of four months of negotiations between government officials, bankers and legal advisers over bonuses and lending. To much fanfare, it was announced that banks would make available some £190 billion to small businesses, increase their contribution to the Business Growth Fund by £1 billion, and provide an additional £200 million to the government’s Big Society Bank, aimed at encouraging the voluntary sector to take over public services.
