The Strategic Outlook: Fear and Uncertainty Have Paths of Their Own / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFear and uncertainty create patterns, paths of their own. And societies are again in a mosaic of uncertainty -- and resultant fear -- over the fate and durability of the social and security frameworks once taken for granted. Mass reaction to these fears will trigger transformative change. But there will be opportunities to seize and command change.

The Governmental Money-Vacuum / Politics / Government Spending

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe drunker I get, the more it seems to me that you slave away at your stupid job every day of your stupid life, hating every moment of it, reviling all the idiotic people you deal with every hellish day, but you bravely and heroically put up with the aggravation, tedium and ennui because you desperately need the money.

Are Consumers Finally Winning in Washington? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This past week the administration announced its choice for the first credit czar at the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This bureau was created as part of the supposed Wall Street reform bill recently passed by Congress. This new bureau, which represents nothing more than another layer of useless Washington bureaucracy, will be housed within the Federal Reserve-- one of the most anti-consumer institutions in Washington.

Real Versus Fake Crises, Concealing The Risk of An All Out Nuclear War / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have reached a turning point in our history. The US and its allies are preparing to launch a nuclear war with devastating consequences.

During the Cold War, the concept of "mutual assured destruction" (MAD) was put forth. An understanding of the consequences of nuclear war largely contributed to avoiding the outbreak of war between the US and the Soviet Union.

Forty-four Million Americans Living in Poverty, Failure of Capitalism? / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Martin writes: The number of people living in poverty in America rose to 43.6 million in 2009, the US Census Bureau reported Thursday. This is the largest number since the agency began making such estimates 50 years ago and represents an increase of 3.8 million compared to 2008.

As of last year, one in every seven Americans was poor, according to the government’s definition of poverty. The official poverty rate of 14.3 percent is the highest since 1994.

China's Next Generation of Leaders, Looking to 2012 / Politics / China

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2012, the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) leaders will retire and a new generation — the so-called fifth generation — will take the helm. The transition will affect the CPC’s most powerful decision-making organs, determining the makeup of the 18th CPC Central Committee, the Political Bureau (Politburo) of the Central Committee, and most important, the nine-member Politburo Standing Committee that is the core of political power in China.

Government Jobs, It's Not about Personnel; It's about Power / Politics / Government Spending

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket analysts have been trying to predict President Obama's pick to head the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Earlier this week Obama and other administration officials hinted that the spot would be filled by Elizabeth Warren, a hero to progressive activists but anathema to the banking industry. (As of Wednesday evening, Warren had been confirmed as a "special adviser" though her ultimate status still remained up in the air.) The whole episode underscores the profound difference between adversarial government operations and peaceful, win-win market activities.

Glenn Beck the Socialist / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Phil Maymin writes: Glenn Beck is a polarizing person among libertarians. Some laud him for being one of the few voices on television to criticize both Democrats and Republicans as being equally complicit in growing the size of government and pointing out that there is no significant difference between them. Others view him as a phony usurper of the freedom movement.

U.S. Economy and Economic Stimulus, Why Can’t Politicians Understand What is Really Happening? / Politics / US Politics

By: Toby_Connor

Every time I hear a politician or economist call for more stimuli to create jobs I just shake my head and wonder, do these people really not understand what is happening in the jobs market?  Do they really not understand that government can't legislate prosperity?  All governments can do is steal from...errr I mean tax its citizens and then throw their funds away on nonproductive ‘make work’ jobs.

Washington Turf Wars / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington’s bureaucratic turf wars are a dismal reality of politics in Beltwayistan, but are now threatening national policy, as competing agendas threaten policies extending far beyond the continental U.S.

In two of the most notable recent examples, the Kazakh “Giffengate” corruption case and attempts to extradite notorious “Lord of War” Viktor Bout to the United States, eager federal officials in both cases are running up against other government elements content to let both cases lie fallow, notably the CIA and Pentagon.

How Corporations Own the US Congress / Politics / US Politics

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the November elections quickly approaching, the majority of Americans will be thinking one thing: "Who cares?” This apathy isn't due to ignorance, as some accuse. Rather, working people's disinterest in the two party system implies intelligence: millions of people understand that both the Democrats and Republicans will not represent their interests in Congress.

Obama's $50 Billion "Infrastructure" Gift to the Wall Street Banks / Politics / Government Spending

By: Michael_Hudson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI can smell the newest giveaway looming a mile off. The Wall Street bailout, health-insurance giveaway and support of real estate prices rather than mortgage-debt write-downs were bad enough, not to mention the Oil War¹s Afghan extension. But now comes a topper: the $50 billion transportation infrastructure plan that Obama proposed in Milwaukee ­ cynically enough, on Labor Day. It looks like the Thatcherite Public-Private Partnership, Britain¹s notorious giveaway to the City of London underwriters. The financial giveaway had the effect of increasing prices for basic infrastructure services by building in heavy financial fees ­ guaranteed for the banks, who lent the money that banks and property owners used to pay in taxes in more progressive times.
