The Fed's Ultimate Lie Exposed, Central Banks Are Not Banks / Politics / Central Banks

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am going to make a number of obvious statements that we all can agree are true, but what they add up to is a startling conclusion. What we call "central banks" are not banks at all.

What is a bank? I refer the reader to a straightforward but reasonably detailed answer here. A bank is a financial organization in which people deposit their money, we are told. This is true. A bank is a business, we are told. This is true. We are also told in this little essay that "each bank tries to make THEIR bank look better than all of the other banks by offering services that some other banks might not have". That is to say, banks compete in a market. This is true, conceptually at least, and also true to some extent in reality, although numerous banking laws seriously alter the market and the competition. But it is the pure idea we are after here, and in the pure idea a bank is a business that competes in a market.

Busted Europe, Euro and the European Union Are Going Down / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe European Monetary Union is going to break down. This will be followed by a break-up of the European Union.

This is denied by the New World Order's promoters of international unification. They have been planning for this since the end of World War I. They have been actively implementing this by stealth since the early 1950s. They used treaties to bring this political unification to pass. They used economic unification as the bait. The hook of political unification was always buried in the bait.

Will Obama Earn His Nobel Prize and Abstain Palestine Vote; Or Play For Re-Election? / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_Butter

I was never quite clear about why President Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize?

I think it was something to do with the concept that he “supported” the idea that America should go along with the idea that the Geneva Convention is a bit more of a big deal than “quaint”. That’s an interesting concept, Adolf Hitler thought the Geneva Convention was “quaint”, but I’m not sure that Angela Merkel is going to get the Nobel Prize.

Greece forced to swallow EU's bitter pills / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

US Corporations Moving to Offshore Tax Havens / Politics / US Economy

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the greatest detriments to job creation in the US is the overseas income deferral law. This unbelievable gift to transnational corporations is at the heart of free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. Presently these corporations are sitting on $2.2 trillion in untaxed profits, which is costing the American taxpayer almost $800 billion in lost tax revenue if like in 2006 they are allowed to bring the funds back at 5-1/4% taxation. Those conglomerates want to bring those funds back into the US tax free, which means $1 trillion in lost taxes, taking advantage of the current financial situation in the US.

US Puppet Regime in Iraq is Calling for a ‘Regime Change’ in Syria / Politics / Middle East

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s one thing when imperial bureaucrats in Washington call for ‘regime change’, but it’s quite another thing when the rallying cry is coming from US-installed puppet regime.

In this case, we’re talking about the now fully domesticated US-puppet government of Nuri Kamal al-Maliki in Iraq, who is now calling for a regime change in its neighboring embattled country Syria. You would think that of all people, the Iraqis would not want to wish a US-sponsored sectarian free-for-all on their worst enemy, or neighbor. But think again.

Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? / Politics / US Politics

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since Rick Perry derided Social Security as a Ponzi scheme, economists and other pundits have jumped into the fray. Progressive blogger Matt Yglesias says it's "nuts" for anyone to talk like this, because Social Security merely relies on future economic growth — just like a private pension plan. Free-market economist Alex Tabarrok responded to Yglesias with links to arch-Keynesians (and Nobel laureates) Paul Samuelson and Paul Krugman, both comparing Social Security to a "Ponzi game."

Obama's Doomed Deficit-Reduction Plan More Political Than Practical / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With the scars from the summer's budget battles still fresh, U.S. President Barack Obama yesterday (Monday) unveiled a deficit-reduction plan that is aimed more at winning votes in the 2012 election than it was to win support from congressional Republicans.

The president's deficit reduction plan includes approximately equal amounts of spending cuts and revenue increases to reach its target of $3 trillion over the next decade.

The First Panacea for a Mismanaged Nation is Inflation, the Second is War / Politics / US Politics

The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.” Ernest Hemingway
