Velkommen to Banktopia / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's talk turkey. The dollar is getting hammered by the day. And the dollar is getting hammered by design, because the Fed wants a weaker currency to boost exports and lower the real burden of debt on the banks. (Yes, Martha, the banks are still insolvent) So, down goes the greenback, lower and lower, pushing up gas and food prices while the buying power of the average US worker vanishes down the plughole. And this process will continue for the foreseeable future because--as Obama stated earlier in the year--Washington is committed to "doubling exports in the next 5 years." Think about that: "the next 5 years". That's the same as saying that the American worker will be reduced to third-world poverty in a half decade or so. It's a death sentence.

Barack Obama, The President Who Became an Actor / Politics / US Politics

By: Finian_Cunningham

If Ronald Reagan was known as the actor who became a president, then perhaps Barack Obama should become known as the president who became an actor.

For every facial movement evinced, every gesture of the hand, every word enunciated by the 44th president turns out to be a complete charade.

What Makes a Great President Great? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge W. Bush only ranks 34th in the recent surveys of the greatest Presidents of the United States. Since there are but 40-43 of these magnificents in total, Dubya is way down there. Why?

What is greatness in a U.S. President, hereafter simply called a President? There is no scientific definition, although the more scholarly polls have criteria of greatness. These need not detain us. The polls themselves tell us what Americans think makes a great President, and it is against the implicit criterion that we observe in the data that we discover that Dubya’s low standing is an anomaly.

Con Games and Currency Destruction, are the Policies of Every Single Central Bank / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in the era of World War II, a goldbrick was a slacker in the military. He was the guy who always seemed to be able to find a reason not to pull his own weight, as the phrase went.

The low-level Army grunts who wore the boots that were on the ground had a saying: "Never volunteer for anything." But you weren't supposed to be a slacker. Somewhere in between unofficial status as a red hot and a goldbrick was where most people wanted to be.

The Libyan Battle for Misurata / Politics / Middle East

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Libyan city of Misurata is the last remaining major rebel outpost in western Libya. Misurata’s access to the sea has enabled regular shipments of food, weapons, medicine and ammunition to sustain the resistance in the face of daily attacks by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Gadhafi’s forces are intent on retaking the port at Misurata, while the Libyan rebels based in Benghazi hope the looming humanitarian crisis in Misurata will persuade the European coalition leading the mission in Libya to deploy ground troops to assist the rebels.

Answering Objections to a Trade Tariff / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s only fair to answer some of the objections to the idea of an import tariff that I and others, like possible presidential candidate Donald Trump, have recently proposed.

One common objection is simply that our trading partners would just shrug it off by increasing subsidies to their exporters.

Europe in Economic Turmoil Following Debt and PIIGS Bailout Crisis / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDan Steinbock, writer for The Globalist sent an interesting story he wrote regarding the Euro Crisis: Economic Turmoil, Political Backlash in the wake of the Finnish election results and the rise of the "True Finns".

The Myth of Debt-Free Living, You Are Getting Stiffed / Politics / Debt & Loans

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have set up a free website for people who are deep in consumer debt.

I am a great believer in getting out from under the burden of consumer debt. But I am not a believer in getting out of debt. There is a reason for this. The only way to get out of debt is to die.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe usual suspects are racing to debunk Donald Trump’s foray into the most serious protectionism—a 25% tariff on China—proposed by a major presidential candidate since Patrick Buchanan ran in 1992.

They know this is big. Our long-delayed national trade debate has begun.

The E.U. Cracks Up / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePolitical upheaval has hit Finland, and it’s merely a foreshadowing of bigger changes ahead. The core issue is whether Finland ought to be paying for bailouts for other EU states. In reaction to establishment support for the bailout, voters ousted the pro-bailout ruling party and gave an upset victory to the bailout-critical conservative party. Against every expectation, the eternal rule of the social democrats is at an end.
