The Irish "get it" / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The people of Ireland "get it". The people of Greece, Spain, and Portugal "get it". It's the American who doesn't. What do they "get"? They realize the austerities imposed upon them are to shield, protect and defend the profits of the bankers, the traders, the market speculators, hedge funds, bond holders and entire investment class who will suffer little if at all from their market loses  - the people will bear their loses.

Can U.S. Afford Political Gridlock Already? / Politics / US Politics

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the near collapse of the financial system in 2008, the Bush Administration, with the Republican party in control of both houses of Congress, took aggressive, unprecedented action. The government was not grid-locked. Decisive action was possible and was taken.

While North And South Korea Exchange Artillery, China and Russia Fire A Warning Shot Against The Bernanke Bow / Politics / US Dollar

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen time permits I like to relax with a good mystery story.  One of my favorite masters of the genre is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Shirlock Holmes.  A few days ago a story appeared on the front page of China Daily on 11-23-10, that is worthy in emulating the masters great classic: “The Dog That Did Not Bark.”

Euro Fatally Wounded by Serial Sovereign Debt Bailouts / Politics / Euro

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been warning since 2007 that European banks were in at least as bad a shape as US banks. Recent events in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain should make it clear to even the Euro bulls just how severe the stress on the Euro is.

One would think this would have caused the dollar-centric hyperinflationists and those who thought the Euro would be the world's next reserve currency to go into hiding, but instead several hyperinflation proponents have attracted followings by calling for hyperinflation in the US by the end 2011. One even offered seminars on how to deal with it.

Ellen Brown endorses Bernanke and QE2 / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my November 22 article announcing Ellen Brown's defection to the Federal Reserve, I wrote this:

If she tries to defend herself by saying, "This is consistent with what I have always said," then she is dumber than dirt, or else she thinks her followers are dumber than dirt.

Thanksgiving, A Tale of Two Colonies / Politics / US Politics

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary M. Galles writes: At Thanksgiving, Americans recall their blessings around bountiful meals, with imagery going back to the Pilgrims, especially Plymouth Colony's 1623 Thanksgiving. But little attention is paid to what allows that bounty to be created — capitalism — though Jamestown and Plymouth both illustrate that lesson.

The TSA's False Tradeoff / Politics / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe national furor over the TSA's new procedures — culminating in yesterday's "Opt Out Day" — has elicited the typical response from the bureaucracy and its apologists. Why, these invasive scans and "enhanced pat-downs" are only for your good, in order to ensure safe flying. You don't want another attack, do you?

Memo to Ireland: "Tell the EU and the IMF to 'Shove It'" / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine that Yasser Arafat had succeeded in ending Israeli occupation and establishing a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza. Now imagine that 10 or 15 years later, new Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, agreed to hand over control of his country's budget to the IMF so his people's future would be controlled by outsiders. Do you think Palestinians would praise Abbas as a patriot or denounce him as a traitor?

The Stench of the Police State at U.S. Airports / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Martin and Joe Kishore write: As tens of millions of Americans travel during the busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend, they will come face to face with the new regime instituted by the federal Transportation Security Administration. More than 70 major airports have installed full-body scanners, where randomly selected passengers are compelled to undergo the electronic equivalent of a strip search. Travelers who decline that scan will be subjected instead to an extremely invasive body search that includes an open-palm patdown of the genital area.

Do You Really Want To Be a Republican or a Democrat? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy main purpose is this. I want to suggest how most of us can get closer to our heart’s political and social desire. The exceptions are those immoral persons who insist on lording it over other people against their wills, i.e., the authoritarians of any stripe.

I present an imaginary scenario. It is not meant to be a detailed photograph of a new reality. It is to suggest the concept to you as a possible new reality. I am following in the footsteps of Paul Emile de Puydt.

Ireland Debt Crisis and Economic Austerity / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Kevin_Geary

As details of the worst austerity budget in memory emerged ahead of the budget debate on Dec. 7th, This was overheard at the Irish Stock Exchange:"We don't know where the money went," said the trader, half in jest, but half in earnest. "We've been debating it all morning. Cars, flat-screen TVs, Bulgarian properties? Everyone round here used to have a Mercedes. The whole country was a pyramid scheme."

Peaceful Countries do not Celebrate Thanksgiving / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Elizabeth Young writes: Thanksgiving commemorates the successful harvest and a time the Pilgrims gathered to give thanks, sharing a feast with their Native American neighbors, who had made possible their survival in the New England wilderness.

"Come, Ye Thankful People, Come" written by Henry "Dean" Alford, the gifted Christian leader of the 19th century and distinguished theologian and scholar, is considered to be one of the finest harvest and Thanksgiving hymns in all of the hymnals of Christian singing.

The Duel over the Fed Dual Mandate of Inflation and Full Employment / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiven the opposing views of the potentially parsimonious new Congress and the continuously accommodative Federal Reserve, there is a movement afoot among Republicans to eliminate the Fed's "dual mandate." Prior to 1977, the Fed only had one job: maintaining price stability. However, the stagflation of the 1970s inspired politicians to assign another task: promoting maximum employment. This "mission creep" has transformed the Fed from a monetary watchdog into an instrument of social policy. We would do well to give them back their original job.

Why the Tea Party is a Sucker for Charlatans, Ignoramuses, and Statists / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEllen Brown is a leftist. I have hammered away at this since October 8: 52 original criticisms, followed by 30 responses. Still, her followers could not believe it. They sent me outraged letters. Poor Max Keiser publicly challenged me to defend myself. How did I dare say such things about his favorite anti-FED expert?
