Public Sector Spending Cuts, George Osbourne Speech Full Text Transcript / Politics / UK Tax & Budget

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMr Speaker. Today's the day when Britain steps back from the brink. When we confront the bills from a decade of debt. A day of rebuilding when we set out a four-year plan to put our public services and welfare state on a sustainable footing - for the long term. So that they can do their job - providing for families, protecting the vulnerable and underpinning a competitive economy. It is a hard road, but it leads to a better future. We are going to bring the years of ever-rising borrowing to an end. We are going to ensure, like every solvent household in the country: that what we buy, we can afford; that the bills we incur, we have the income to meet; and that we do not saddle our children with the interest on the interest on the interest of the debts we were not ourselves prepared to pay. Tackling this budget deficit is unavoidable. The decisions about how we do it are not. There are choices. And today we make them. Investment in the future rather than the bills of past failure. That is our choice.

U.S. Government Confiscating Retirement Accounts / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Social Security System went into red ink mode this year. I predicted last January that this would happen. My video is here.

More money is now flowing out of the Social Security Administration to recipients than is flowing in through FICA taxes and interest payments to the SSA Trust Fund from the U.S. Treasury's general fund.

Why is the World Rushing Headlong into Environmental Armageddon? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dr_Tom_Termotto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there any doubt that planet Earth has been undergoing an environmental armageddon for decades?  We are not just referring to the spate of oil spills all over the world such as the BP Gulf Oil Spill, or the many other toxic deluges which go unreported unlike the Hungary Toxic Sludge Disaster, or the ongoing destruction of the world’s rainforests like those being systematically wiped out in the Amazon Basin.  We are also alluding to the “unseen” worldwide chemical apocalypse, the global proliferation of electro-pollution (EMR), the major uptick in man-made geopathic stress events on both the micro and macro levels, as well as the relentless contamination of living environments throughout the planet with radioactivity.

New Challenges to the U.S. Employment Problem / Politics / Employment

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe view of the employment numbers for September gives the impression that the economy is improving. The private sector is adding jobs even as the government reduces employment as census workers end their assignments. Looking deeper, the employment situation faces new challenges from state and local governments dealing with their revenue short falls.

Has the Coalition Government Sunk the British Navy? / Politics / UK Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Margolis writes: PARIS – Britain’s mighty Royal Navy ruled the waves until World War II, fully 25% of the earth’s surface. There are few greater epochs in history than the stirring saga the Royal Navy, Britain’s famed "wooden walls."

As a boy, I thrilled to the glorious adventures of Britain’s sailors, such as Sir Francis Drake, the renowned admirals Anson and Howe, and the great Sir Horatio Nelson, whose name will live forever in naval glory.

U.S. Economic Recovery, Tax Cuts Won't Cut It / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongressional Republicans and Democrats are engaged in a heated debate over which Americans deserve not to have their taxes raised, with both claiming that some form of tax cut will stimulate the economy. The primary point of divergence is what type of cuts will be most likely to get Americans spending, and whether the wealthy will wastefully save their extra cash or use it to create jobs. This debate is academic. If a stronger economy (rather than pre-election posturing) is really the goal, then tax cuts alone will fail.

Wall Street and White House Blame Homeowners For Foreclosure Crisis / Politics / US Housing

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTom Eley writes: Wall Street has raised its voice against any government moratorium on foreclosures, even as evidence mounts that banks systematically and illegally falsified documents in order to expedite hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of foreclosures.

Documented examples of abuse include banks hiring contractors and what one Goldman Sachs executive referred to as “Burger King kids” to process thousands of foreclosure documents per week, all the while declaring to courts they were familiar with the cases. Lenders also falsified signatures, notary stamps, and tossed legal documents into the garbage. Every major bank is implicated in the widening scandal.

Report from the Epicentre of Foreclosures Fraud / Politics / US Housing

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA: In all of the economic issues we are dealing with, there is always a “back story, a deeper context” that is usually missing, “disappeared” like those Allende supporters in Chile in the l970’s who wanted to empower workers, not just rescue them when they get buried in a deep hole.

The Nobel Prize for Capitalism Awarded to Chinese Dissident Liu Xiaobo / Politics / China

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStephen Gowans writes: Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese dissident who was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, has been hailed as a champion of human rights and democracy. His jailing by Chinese authorities for inciting subversion of the state is widely regarded as an unjust stifling of advocacy rights by a Chinese state intolerant of dissent and hostile to ”universal values”. But what Western accounts have failed to mention is that Charter 08, the manifesto Liu had a hand in writing and whose signing led to his arrest, is more than a demand for political and civil liberties. It is a blueprint for making over China into a replica of US society and eliminating the last vestiges of the country’s socialism.

Foreclosuregate: Time to Break Up the Too-Big-to-Fail Banks? / Politics / US Housing

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLooming losses from the mortgage scandal dubbed “foreclosuregate” may qualify as the sort of systemic risk that, under the new financial reform bill, warrants the breakup of the too-big-to-fail banks. The Kanjorski amendment allows federal regulators to pre-emptively break up large financial institutions that—for any reason—pose a threat to U.S. financial or economic stability.

U.S. Plans To Seize Pakistan’s Nuclear Arsenal War Rumour / Politics / Pakistan

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo recent news items emanating from the United States have begun to reverberate in Pakistan and give rise to speculation that growing American drone strikes and NATO helicopter attacks in that country may be the harbingers of far broader actions: Nothing less than the expansion of the West’s war in Afghanistan into Pakistan with the ultimate goal of seizing the nation’s nuclear weapons.

End The FED and Get The Gold / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow can we end the Federal Reserve System? Prior to 2008, this question would have been entirely hypothetical. It is still entirely hypothetical, because the Federal Reserve System is in charge of monetary policy; the Congress of the United States is not. Certainly, the voters of the United States are not. Nevertheless, I wish to indulge myself in a completely hypothetical speculation. I wish it were less hypothetical than it is, but things are better than they were before 2008. "All hypothetical possibilities are equal, but some are more equal than others."

A Valuable Lesson: Education Must Pay Off for US / Politics / Educating Children

By: Barry_Elias

The United States spends more money per student than any country in the world: roughly $35,000 total for primary, secondary and tertiary education.

In 2006, the United States was ranked 32nd and 22nd in math and science, respectively, out of 52 countries. This was based on testing by the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) at the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD).

Financial Markets Tensions Rise as Global Policymakers Part Ways / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe tension out there is so thick you can cut it with a knife. I’m talking about the tension building between central bankers and policymakers in developed nations and their counterparts in so-called emerging market countries.

On the one hand, you have policymakers here, in Japan, and in England promising to print money until the cows come home. Their aim is to boost their faltering domestic economies and combat deflation.
