NHS Hospitals Productivity Falls For a Decade by 1.4% Per Year Despite 70% Budget Increase / Politics / NHS

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNAO writes: Hospital productivity has fallen over the last ten years, according to the National Audit Office. Over the period since the ‘NHS Plan’ in 2000 there have been significant increases in hospital funding, to deliver improvements in the patient care, and designed in part to increase productivity. Hospitals have used their increased resources to deliver against national priorities, but they need to provide more leadership, management and clinical engagement to optimise the use of additional resources and deliver value for money.

Economics Is Simple But The Fat Cats Want You to Think It's Complicated So That You Won't Demand Change / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomics and finance seem like complicated topics, and so many people "leave it to the experts".

However, these topics are actually simple, and if people hear a clear explanation, they will be able to form an opinion about our current economy and the government's response to economic challenges.

Global Economic Crisis Triggers Debt Driven Suicides in India / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKavaljit Singh writes: The recent suicides by over 60 poor borrowers in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh have brought the operations of microfinance institutions (MFIs) under public scrutiny. It is well documented by both print and electronic media that these debt-driven suicides were due to coercive methods of loan recovery used by commercial MFIs. The commercial MFIs operate as profit-making non-banking financial corporations (NBFCs) in India.

Bernanke Is Untouchable, Except by Ron Paul and the Internet / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke has an overwhelming majority on the Federal Reserve System's Open Market Committee (FOMC), which meets every six weeks to set Federal Reserve policy. There is only one dissenter, Thomas Hoenig, who consistently votes against any expansion of the FOMC's asset purchases, meaning any expansion of the FED's balance sheet: the monetary base. The vote is consistently 10 to 1.

On Obama's Failure To Carry Out His Elected Mandate To Reform / Politics / US Politics

By: Jesse

"First is the danger of futility; the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New /world, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. "Give me a place to stand," said Archimedes, "and I will move the world."

Britain's Police State, UK Adopts Chinese Model of Policing Protests? / Politics / UK Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNathan Allonby writes: CCTV has led to large scale arrests, following the recent student protests in London, over increased tuition fees. A total of over 180 people have been arrested, with the majority identified by CCTV.

The current arrests very much represent a landmark - we are now equipped for the Chinese approach to public order, in almost a complete reversal previous British policing.

Fatally Flawed End the Fed Campaign Would Allow Congress to Print Money / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRepresentative Dennis Kucinich has introduced a bill to end the Fed.

Reaganomics / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI admire Robert Reich, because he has a social conscience. However, if I were writing about the current Republican/Obama tax cut, I would not help the Republicans put Ronald Reagan’s name on it. Outside of progressive circles, which reflexively blame Reagan, the 40th president is still popular, because the 1980s were the last of the good times. Who prefers 21st century America to the Reagan 1980s?

Korea Steps Back From The Brink / Politics / North Korea

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRealizing that its plan to intimidate North Korea has backfired and brought the peninsula to the brink of war, the Obama administration is now looking for ways to ease tensions. But South Korea's tough-talking President Lee Myung-bak has decided to go ahead with the controversial artillery tests on Yeonpyeong Island and risk a resumption of hostilities. The North has warned that if the drills proceed, they will respond with a "counterattack....that would be deadlier than the strike on Nov. 23."

Distorting the Tax Policy Debate / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

George Orwell warned us about the use of “meaningless words” in politics, words that are endlessly repeated by sloganeering politicians until they have no meaning at all. Meaningless words certainly were on display during last week’s congressional debate over the latest tax bill.

The Smearing of Ron Paul by Paul Krugman / Politics / US Politics

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the Republicans retook the U.S. House of Representatives last November, it meant that Ron Paul would be in line to chair the subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve System. Despite the intense lobbying by Ben Bernanke and others who loathed the prospect of Rep. Paul being able to subpoena them to appear before Congress and then to ask them pointed questions about their secret operations, the Republican leadership still gave Rep. Paul his rightful position.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA warning… Bad stuff coming!

We’ve come to the warm latitudes for our Christmas holiday. Your editor didn’t really want to do so. He travels so much for business, he longed to stay home for Christmas. He imagined himself sitting in front of the fire…happily drinking eggnog and eating fruitcake. Or, cutting down trees and mending fences.
