The Final End of the Hydrocarbon Fuel Paradigm / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: T_Anthony_Michael

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Tom Termotto writes: These are the realities on the ground (undersea floor), in the water (Gulf of Mexico & Seven Seas), and in the air (atmosphere) in the wake of the Oil & Gas Industry operations around the globe, as it has operated for well over 100 years. For illustration purposes let’s just focus on the northern Gulf Coast of Mexico, since that is where Mother Earth has directed our collective attention. We can do this quickly by consulting the following map of the oil and gas platforms that were in operation throughout the Gulf of Mexico in 2006 (per Wikipedia).

BP Gulf Oil Well Blowout May Never End / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I have previously noted, it is now clear that there is damage to BP's well beneath the sea floor.

The question is whether there is enough mechanical structure left at the base of the reservoir to hold the cement when they start pouring cement in [from the relief well].

Who Owns the World? / Politics / New World Order

By: Submissions

Shirin Shafaie writes: No one owns the world, yet we all do, along with other non-speaking species. This is a reality which has very real consequences. Each one of us has the potential to impact the lives of everyone else in this world for better or worse. After all, it is up to individuals to make all the final decisions and act upon them whether towards enhancing the quality of our lives or destructing it altogether. It takes individual human beings to make decisions, even though it may take some machines to act upon them. It takes one pilot to press the button and one man to fly an airplane into a skyscraper; even the unmanned military aircrafts do have some men remotely controlling them. But it is not as simple as that.

Congress Or Fed Too Big To Fail? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mark of political sovereignty is legal immunity from failure. For example, the government of the United States cannot be sued without its consent. It is above the law. It must consent to expose itself to the possibility of failure in a court.

In school, we are taught about an ancient idea that is long out of favor: the divine right of kings. What did it mean? I think most people would find it difficult to say. It meant that there was no earthly court of appeal above the king. The king's judicial word was law, because no higher authority could lawfully overturn his word.

What Now After Financial Reform? Will We Be Spared Another Market Crash? / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Sturm und Drang is over. The Bank lobbyists went home to collect their bonuses as the House and Senate agreed on a 2000 page financial “reform” quickly praised by the White House and superficially covered in the press.

The key underreported fact highlighted by Naked Capitalism: “On a flat trading day, financial firms shares rose 2.7% after the deal was announced.” Compare that to the market volatility and dire forecasts on Wall Street that followed the call for new financial regulations and you can see who won.

Towards a New Monetary Order / Politics / Central Banks

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHenry Ford is alleged to have said that "it is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."

The spirit of his words encourages us to put forward questions about the banking and monetary system — especially in view of the international credit-market crisis. Is it a good thing that central banks have cut interest rates essentially to zero and have increased the base-money supply dramatically to support the financial sector? Will depression be prevented if governments underwrite banks' balance sheets and run up huge deficits in an attempt to strengthen production and employment?

U.S. Afghanistan Strategy After McChrystal / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

The commander of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, Gen. Stanley McChrystal has resigned his command. His resignation is a direct result of his controversial remarks in a Rolling Stone interview broken late June 21, and not a reflection or indictment of the campaign he has led in Afghanistan. But that campaign and the strategy behind it are having significant issues of their own.

The Greek Plague, Sticky Wages / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the deaths of three bank employees, Greek president Karolos Papoulias lamented that the debt-ridden country had finally "reached the edge of the abyss." It should be so lucky. Abysses allow for falls into the deep unknown. If real wages would make the plunge, Greek workers would have a future with more options than striking and senseless destruction.

The Brilliant but Confused Radicalism of George Orwell / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jeff_Riggenbach

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Arthur Blair, who is best known under his pseudonym, George Orwell, was born 107 years ago this month in India, where his father was a British civil servant. His father's job, according to Orwell biographer Gordon Bowker, "was to oversee the growing of opium, mainly for export to China." Though young Eric's mother had herself grown up in Burma, the daughter of yet another British civil servant, she had long since tired of Asia; and when her son was only a year old she successfully lobbied her husband to ship her and their two children — Eric and his older sister, Marjorie — back to England. Eric did not see his father again for eight years, until he was nine years old and had come home for Christmas vacation from his "prep school," St. Cyprian's.

Is Alan Greenspan a National Security Risk? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Reuters) - "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday said 'outrageous' advice from former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan helped create record U.S. budget deficits that put national security at risk." -February 25, 2010

Alan Greenspan lamented U.S. budget deficits in the Wall Street Journal on June 18, 2010 ("U.S. Debt and the Greece Analogy"). For an analysis of Greenspan's flapdoodle, Barry Ritholtz covered the turf on his blog, The Big Picture. The former Federal Reserve chairman should have withheld comment, given his personal contribution to the nation's poverty-stricken state.
