Greenspan and the Economic Crisis, "Moral Hazard" and Financial Fraud are the Main Problems / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven Alan Greenspan is confirming what William Black, James Galbraith, Joseph Stiglitz, George Akerlof and many other economists and financial experts have been saying for a long time: the economy cannot recover if fraud is not prosecuted and if the big banks know that government will bail them out every time they get in trouble.

Fake U.S. Unemployment Data, Rising Poverty in America / Politics / Economic Statistics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

If we cannot trust what the government tells us about weapons of mass destruction, terrorist events, and the reasons for its wars and bailouts, can we trust the government’s statement last Friday that the US economy gained 151,000 payroll jobs during October?

Mobile Cell Phone Radiation The Health Hazards / Politics / Social Issues

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is now inconceivable that our world could function without the 5 billion cell phones used globally. The new book by Devra Davis “Disconnect” deserves your attention. Indeed, if you use a cell phone a lot it should be mandatory reading.

It also seems inconceivable that the trillion dollar cell phone industry and governments worldwide could have pushed this technology without ever having solid research results proving the safety of cell phones. If true that would be deadly frightening. But that is exactly the reality.

How the Republicans Will Sucker the Tea Party / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst, you must understand that Boehner is a GobGop: a Good Old Boy of the Grand Old Party. The GobGops' goal is to keep the present system funded by the Bigs: Big Business, Big Pharma, Big Oil, and Big Banking. If you do not understand this, then you are as naive as a Democrat who thinks Obama speaks for The Common Man.

Left-Center Political Parties Pay the Price for Bailing Out the Bankster's / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Petras writes: The November 2, 2010 electoral debacle of the Democratic Party in the US cannot be solely ascribed to the failed policies of President Obama, the Congressional leadership or their senior economic advisers. Nor is the demise of what passes for the American “center-left” confined to the US – it is a world-wide pattern, expressed in countries as diverse as Greece, Portugal, Spain, Great Britain and Japan.

ForeclosureGate Could Force Bank Nationalization / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor two years, politicians have danced around the nationalization issue, but ForeclosureGate may be the last straw.  The megabanks are too big to fail, but they aren’t too big to reorganize as federal institutions serving the public interest.

In January 2009, only a week into Obama’s presidency, David Sanger reported in The New York Times that nationalizing the banks was being discussed.  Privately, the Obama economic team was conceding that more taxpayer money was going to be needed to shore up the banks.  When asked whether nationalization was a good idea, House speaker Nancy Pelosi replied:

QE2 and U.S. China Politics, Shrewd as Serpents / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Submissions

Everyone has heard about the Prisoners' Dilemma before, I suppose. For those who don't know, here is the gist: It is about a situation between two players that if they cooperate, they will get the biggest benefit. However, if one decides to cooperate yet get betrayed later, he will suffer more than if he simply betrayed the other guy in the first place. Logically, the two players should simply cooperate, but sometimes when you are uncertain about the other player's sincerity, the situation becomes tricky.

Russian's Forget What they Were Celebrating on November 4th / Politics / Russia

By: Pravda

What is Russia celebrating on November 4th? According to sociologists, many of Russia's residents simply have no idea what the Day of National Unity is. And yet this is not a new holiday of the post-perestroika era designed to replace the October Revolution Day on November 7. The history of this day counts over three centuries.

Democrats Prepare to Move to the Right / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

On the eve of the Republican-dominated mid-term election, working people were told to vote Democrat to prevent a "truly dangerous" Republican party from taking power. There is an element of truth in this:  the Republican Party has been sprinting to the far right for decades, to the point where they are incapable of speaking sensibly about political issues.

Taxing the Rich to Cure the Governments Debt Crisis? / Politics / Taxes

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week's episode of 60 Minutes featured a 13-minute segment on "taxing the rich" in order to cure the government's debt problem. In addition to being an outrageously biased story, the coverage was filled with more economic fallacies than I can address in a single article.

The World Looks at Obama After the U.S. Midterm Election / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2010 U.S. midterm elections were held, and the results were as expected: The Republicans took the House but did not take the Senate. The Democrats have such a small margin in the Senate, however, that they cannot impose cloture, which means the Republicans can block Obama administration initiatives in both houses of Congress. At the same time, the Republicans cannot override presidential vetoes alone, so they cannot legislate, either. The possible legislative outcomes are thus gridlock or significant compromises.

U.S. Midterm Elections Further Demonstrates The Need for Revolution / Politics / US Politics

By: David_DeGraw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Obama referendum came in and he got what he deserved. When you run on change and leave the same criminals in positions of power and don’t hold anyone accountable for obvious crimes, and allow them to continue to commit those crimes, you deserve to lose your power. This is what happens when you put Tim Geithner and Larry Summers in charge of the economy, and support Ben Bernanke for reconfirmation as Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

The Impotence of U.S. Elections, Democrats and Republicans One Party with Two Names / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his historical novel, The Leopard, Giuseppe di Lampedusa writes that things have to change in order to remain the same. That is what happened in the US congressional elections on November 2.

Jobs offshoring, which began on a large scale with the collapse of the Soviet Union, has merged the Democrats and Republicans into one party with two names. The Soviet collapse changed attitudes in socialist India and communist China and opened those countries, with their large excess supplies of labor, to Western capital.

Northern Rock Remutualisation or Privatisation? / Politics / UK Politics

By: Submissions

Today Compass calls on the Government to launch an investigation into the feasibility of remutualising Northern Rock and Bradford & Bingley. A Compass commissioned YouGov poll yesterday showed nearly twice as many people favoured remutualisation of Northern Rock as opposed to a private sale. This follows on from Ed Miliband's recent support for remutualisation of the bank.

The U.S. Mid-Term Elections are Over… Yet it Ain’t Over / Politics / US Economy

By: Joseph_Toronto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur financial system and our economy nearly collapsed over two years ago. With proper management we should have recovered, but we haven’t. Unemployment, the one thing that voters see and feel, front and center, remains the highest it’s been for decades and voters are justifiably angry.
