The Decline of Empire: 'Why America Failed' / Politics / US Politics

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo say that Morris Berman has a 'dark vision' to share is an understatement.

I think his view is legitimate, but only if you look at one somewhat narrow aspect of the American character, and ignore all the rest. It seems to be singularly focused to the point of distortion by a depressive fatalism.

Eurodystopia: A Future Divided / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust about everyone will recognize the family name. Fewer will be familiar with the man behind it. But Alfred (Freddy) Heineken was an interesting man regardless. Starting in 1941, he took over the family firm founded by his grandfather, bought back shares and never looked back. Freddy built the Heineken brand into one of the best marketed ones in the world for any product, and today, 10 years after his death, it is still in the very top of world breweries.

Reality Check - U.S. Supporting Al-Qaeda in Syria, Did the CIA Create Al-Qaeda? / Politics / Al-Qeeda

By: Videos

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Swann of Cincinnati's local Fox station goes where the MSM would neither dare nor understand. In this 'Reality Check' segment he takes a look at how the US government created Al Qaeda. Indeed, in today's Middle East turmoil it's fighting Al Qaeda in some countries while supporting them in others. Take note of Hillary's confirmation and explanation of how that all started.

The Dispossessed Majority / Politics / Social Issues

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bumper sticker on the beat-up pickup truck read: “Friends don’t let friends vote Democrat.”

The driver was obviously not affluent. Yet, despite all the news about mega-trillion dollar bankster bailouts, mega-million dollar bonuses for financial crooks, and unimaginable compensation packages for corporate CEOs who have moved middle class jobs out of America, something made the down-and-out pickup truck driver associate with the political party of the super-rich.

Lawyers and Banks Offer Full Range of Criminal Services to the Elite / Politics / Banksters

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a two-tiered system of rules, with Liberty and Justice for some.

If you knew how routinely it is marketed, and understood the full extent of it, you would be surprised and angry at the cynical injustice of those who consider that only the 'little people' should bear the burdens for their country and the consequences of their actions.

Central Bankers, The Not So Super Hero's / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past week provided clear lessons not just in how central bankers have a limited ability to positively influence the economy but also how they are limited in their capacity to deliver the shortsighted policy actions that investors currently crave. The developments should provide new reasons for investors and economy watchers to abandon their faith in central bankers as super heroes capable of saving the economy.

Bernanke’s Pursuit of Happiness / Politics / Central Banks

By: Jan_Skoyles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday Bernanke, in a pre-recorded speech to a conference in Cambridge, MA, extolled the virtues of happiness economics.

Let’s be honest, there was little point in him singing the praises of his own area of economics, that’s fallen flat on its face.

Across the developed world the damages from the fiat money system become greater every day. Governments and central bankers are the ones to thanks for widening levels of poverty and inequality. The majority of our daily lives are affected by decisions made from us drawn from economic studies and statistics. But now the most sacred thing to all of us – our happiness – is something the most powerful government on earth would like to get their hands on.

Euro to Beat U.S. Dollar? Draghi’s Genius / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors have not woken up to it, but last week may have been a game changer. European Central Bank (ECB) President Draghi took tail risks out of the Eurozone, while at the same time forcing closer fiscal integration. He did it all while keeping the ECB out of some political minefields. It's pure genius. The initial market reaction suggested he might have lost a battle, not realizing that he is winning the war.

Ron Paul - U.S. Moving Towards War in Syria / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week the House passed yet another bill placing sanctions on Iran and Syria, bringing us closer to another war in the Middle East. We are told that ever harsher sanctions finally will force the targeted nations to bend to our will. Yet the ineffectiveness of previous sanctions teaches us nothing; in truth sanctions lead to war more than they prevent war.

Mario Draghi Distracts Investors With Just Promises To Save the Euro / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

In the last week of July, ECB President Mario Draghi attracted investor interest worldwide by saying that he would do "whatever it takes" to solve the Eurozone crisis and, in the process, save the euro. Markets rallied as investors concluded that Mr. Draghi could only be referring to the financial heroine of quantitative easing (QE) and the transfer of toxic Eurozone sovereign debt assets from troubled private banks to EU taxpayers. This mini rally built on momentum that had previously been fueled by belief that Fed Chairman Bernanke would imminently announce a further round of QE in the United States.

Obamacare Hidden Taxes Will Cost You More Than You Think / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: The bill for Obamacare is on its way, and guess what? It's addressed to you.

You see, all those great benefits included in the Affordable Care Act don't come cheap, which is why the new healthcare law includes a barrage of new "Obamacare taxes."

U.S. Says Iran Violates International Obligations, What Are International Obligations? / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat are “international obligations?  Does the United States have to uphold them along with other counties? Does Washington even know they are defined as “obligations owed by states to the international community as a whole, intended to protect and promote the basic values and common interests of all.” By this very definition, no one state can decide what’s best for all.

When the United States stepped up its sanctions on Iran last past week, it cited Iran’s failure to adhere to its “international obligations.” There was, of course, no reference to domestic politics where President Obama, under attack from adversary Mitt Romney, criticized his failure to stop Iran’s nuclear program.

The Political Significan​ce of Gore Vidal / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Gore Vidal legacy encompasses his numerous novels, literary writings, plays and essays. Few 20th century authors can match the volume of his compositions and consistency in the quality of his thoughts. If one can ignore his anti-religious beliefs and get past his complex sexuality, one can justly focus on the significance within his political viewpoints. Not since Oscar Wilde, has there been a man of letter with comparable wit and ridicule, that capsulated the age of his lifetime. Based upon a keen command of history and a flare for original insights, Vidal was the master political polemicist.

Fallacies of Pearlstein's WaPo op-ed on Glass-Steagall / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: ECB_Watch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile not an expert on banking legislation, I've come across sufficiently visible fallacies in rejecting the notion that the repeal of Glass-Steagall was a factor of crisis, I felt confident enough to write a post describing them (jump to 'Also see'). The Washington Post now publishes an article by Steven Pearlstein repeating the same fallacies: 'Let's shatter the myth on Glass Steagall' (WP). Both Sorkin and Pearlstein are recipient of prestigious awards (Gerald Loeb and Pulitzer).
