Fed Report Reveals Multi-Trillion-Dollar “Shadow Bailout” / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndre Damon writes: The US Federal Reserve on Wednesday posted details of its multi-trillion-dollar “shadow bailout” programs, showing that nearly every major US financial institution benefited from billions in unreported government loans.

The data from 21,000 Fed transactions carried out between December 2007 and July 2010 involves eleven special lending facilities set up by the US central bank at the height of the financial crisis to funnel trillions of dollars into large financial companies. The money was lent at close to zero interest with no strings attached. The banks and corporations on the receiving end of the massive bailout were not required to even report what they did with the government cash.

Geopolitical Journey Into Ukraine / Politics / Eastern Europe

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe name “Ukraine” literally translates as “on the edge.” It is a country on the edge of other countries, sometimes part of one, sometimes part of another and more frequently divided. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it was divided between Russia, Poland and the Ottoman Empire. In the 19th century, it was divided between Russia and Austria-Hungary. And in the 20th century, save for a short period of independence after World War I, it became part of the Soviet Union. Ukraine has been on the edge of empires for centuries.

Wikileaks Reveals U.S. Diplomats Hatching Blazingly Stupid Schemes / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe blazing stupidity of some of the ridiculous schemes hatched by US diplomats is staggering.

Take a look at Wikileaks Docs Reveal Secret Scheme To Wean China Off Of Iranian Oil Supply by Joe Weisenthal at the Business Insider, and I will show you exactly what I mean.

Very interesting nugget from the WikiLeaks dump showing how the world of economics, security, and energy collide.

Putin's Russian Mafia State Buys World Cup By Bribing Corrupt FIFA Officials? / Politics / Russia

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWikileaks recent U.S. Embassy cable release risks a diplomatic incidence between Russia and the USA as Russia was accused of being a defacto Mafia State that has ceased to be a democracy and is run by the secret services on behalf of an Oligarchy. Much of which comes as nothing new to either the Russian people, business men or foreign investors who know that whilst doing business with Russia can prove highly profitable, however investors and business people have to be nimble footed by being prepared to pull their funds out at short notice.

Wikileaks Reveals a Government Caught Up in the Mendacity of Lies / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe reaction to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange tells us all we need to know about the total corruption of our “modern” world, which in fact is a throwback to the Dark Ages.

Some member of the United States government released to WikiLeaks the documents that are now controversial. The documents are controversial, because they are official US documents and show all too clearly that the US government is a duplicitous entity whose raison d’etre is to control every other government.

Will Rand Paul Lead a Tea Party Revolution from Washington, D.C.? / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe national Tea Party movement had an amazing, if bumpy, first effort in electoral politics.

As many as five new US Senators are considered tea partiers. As many as twenty new Republican US Representatives are aligned with the Tea Party. This group of new congress-people is a diverse lot though when it comes to formulating public policy.

What Threat is China to the U.S.? / Politics / US Politics

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis topic needs no introduction. We hear discussions in the national media weekly about the possible threat an economically resurgent China poses to the United States — and even to other countries. So how concerned should we really be about China's economic and military might? Answer: China's economic development itself is not in any way harmful to us; ultimately, the only threats that exist as a result of its success come from potential actions taken by politicians as a response to its development. In a world of free trade and political isolationism, China could not possibly be a danger.

How the SEC stamped out Meaningful Financial Reform / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Make no mistake: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a slippery political football.

But this early attempt at reform is actually just the kickoff for a political skirmish that will pit legislators, lobbyists and other hired guns against one another on the post-financial-crisis gridiron.

WikiLeaks and National Insecurity / Politics / US Politics

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn overused term in this age of the overwhelming state is "national security," and I always am amazed at how people who think clearly on other subjects fall all over themselves when someone manages to breach the secrecy of government agencies. Not surprisingly, when this flimsy "security" line actually is crossed, the typical response is to try to kill the messenger.

European Union R.I.P.? Lets Hope So! / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick J. Buchanan writes: When communism collapsed in Moscow, Prague and Belgrade at the end of the Cold War, ethnic nationalism surged to the surface in all three nations and tore them apart into 24 countries.

Economic nationalism is now resurgent across Europe. And it is hard to see how a transnational institution like the European Union, run by faceless bureaucrats, and the 16-nation eurozone it created long survive.

De-Toxify the Federal Beast by Cutting Taxes / Politics / Government Spending

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave you ever heard this phrase? "Starve the beast!" It refers to starving the Federal government. It argues that if Congress cuts taxes, spending cuts will necessarily follow.

The problem with this metaphor is that it conjures up a mental image of an overweight person who cannot bring himself to stop eating. He has no inner Richard Simmons, longing to get out.

WikiLeaks, Major U.S. Bank Flagrant Violations, Gold and Silver / Politics / US Politics

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’ve always occupied the emotional frequencies ranging between disgusted and outraged when it comes to WikiLeaks. Regardless of your stance on governments and sovereign interference, putting the lives of human beings at risk by exposing their participation in intelligence programs is aiding and abetting in murder. The psychotic fundamentalists that perpetuate the bulk of the violent crimes on its own and foreign citizens need not be encouraged by the provision of a list of fresh targets by idealistic or simply amoral grandstanders desperate for attention.

Wikileaks: Will the Truth Make Us Free? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRon Holland writes: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" ~ John 8:32

Although these leaks are a first step toward controlling Washington foreign policy, they do show how incremental actions providing open information can counter the Anglo-American foreign and domestic policies which have brought the world right to the edge of another Middle East war.

Don't Raise the U.S. Debt Ceiling! / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As of November 7th, the total U.S. public debt outstanding reached an astonishing $13.7 trillion. This means that although Congress just raised the debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion back in February, the new Congress will face another debt ceiling vote almost immediately next year. Otherwise, the Treasury will not be able to continue issuing debt to fund government operations.
