(GlobalResearch) – The European and U.S. Economies: Falling Dominoes – Shamus Cooke

Attempting to fix an unfixable problem can create new problems. Why is the global economy unfixable in the current context? For one, the cause of the depression is never mentioned in the mainstream media or politicians. And when a disease is misdiagnosed, a prescribed medication creates new afflictions.

Massive, bad debt is often cited as the cause of the global depression, but whythis debt existed in the first place is never discussed. Quite simply, the debt was needed to buy the products of corporations that wages once consumed. Over time, corporations drove down wages to out-compete each other while driving up profits, creating the global “demand” for credit, which the banks are now demanding be paid back. Read More Here

(BitsOfNews) – Pol/Econ: Deregulation and the Triumph of Wall Street

One year removed from a catastrophic, global, economic meltdown, and 26 months removed from the start of the credit crisis, our political establishment is either unwilling or unable to reform the system and punish the perpetrators of this debacle.

Wait a minute – don’t we pay FAR more every year to a foreign terrorist country that has attacked us?

She doesn’t hesitate repeating the neocon lie about government workers making more than those in the private sector.

Growing Homelessness in America – Stephen Lendman

In the world’s richest country, the trend is shocking, disturbing and appalling. In its 2009 report on “Hunger and Homelessness in US Cities,” the US Conference of Mayors stated:

“Hunger and homelessness (are) at record levels in US cities,” citing an overall 26% demand increase over the past year and 19% more homelessness. Yet worsening conditions leave millions on their own and out of luck because Washington has other priorities excluding them.

“At a time of historic economic crisis, the issues of hunger and homelessness in America are more prevalent than ever.” Cities are hard-pressed to handle them, and planned budget cuts and revenue shortfalls will strap them well into the future. Continue reading

Video: Ron Paul Speech at Jekyll Island – My Battle Against the Fed

(C4L) – The Federal Reserve has had long enough to demonstrate its use to the American economy. The latest economic crisis alone is enough to discredit its claims as the great stabilizer. There is the long history of devastating inflation, the government spending it funds, the wars and welfare that are made possible by its printing presses, and also the conflicts of interest and corruptions it introduces into public life. We can do without the central bank. We don’t need the Fed. Our money and our future would be more assured without it. Continue reading

Fiat Money: The Fuel of Government

The End of Money and the Future of Civilization

A Review of “End the Fed” by Ron Paul

“The entire federal government,” laments Congressman Ron Paul in his newest book, End the Fed, “is one giant toxic asset at the moment.

Whether Secession or Nullification, We All Want Freedom and Independence

There’s a controversy brewing in Texas. It is a controversy over secession or what some are calling nullification. Some see only secession as the end to government intrusion in our lives while others more hopefully believe that the union should remain intact and that the tenth amendment can be used to force the federal government to revert back to its rightful role. Both are probably right, but for different reasons. Continue reading

Why the End of America is Closer than You Think

I recently moved to Ecuador. Not for a vacation. Not for a month or two. I moved to Ecuador for good, as a permanent resident. Upon hearing my plans for living in South America, many people who knew me in the States asked things like, “Well what about the stability of Ecuador as a nation?” To which I would respond, “Oh, you mean the stability of banks that don’t make loans and don’t invest in derivatives? You mean the stability of a nation where the population still has the courage to march in the streets and throw corrupt officials out of its capitol?” Continue reading
