Billion-Trillion Derivatives Market! … Reform or a Blowup?
May 22, 2013

More Monetary Stimulation on the Way
May 22, 2013

Moral Bias at The New York Times
May 22, 2013
The headline said it all: "Confusion and Staff Troubles Rife at I.R.S. Office in Ohio." No mention of mendacity, of evil, of meanness, of vice. Nada. For liberals, their own pals are never morally amiss. They may make mistakes, be confused and have troubles. Bu ...

The Failure of Retirement
May 17, 2013

Immigration: Apparent Effort to Fashion North American Union Continues
May 17, 2013
In the US legislative system, elected officials decide who comes and goes throughout the country. It didn't used to be this way, though. The passport and visa system is only a post-War one. It seems strange but travel was a lot freer a century ago. If you wante ...
The Gold Trend Remains Down

Sure We'll Unwind, Don't Worry …
May 16, 2013
Even top execs at JP Morgan dread the "unwinding" that Ben Bernanke has always said the Federal Reserve is capable of. We don't believe it. Just as Fed bankers don't know how much money is too much, so they don't know how much is too little. Central bank moneta ...

Back to Basics, Please
May 15, 2013
In today's climate of political theatrics it isn't very easy to figure out where right stands versus wrong. As Ron Paul points out at The Daily Bell, the Benghazi fiasco pretty much amounts to an illustration of the folly of the American government's unending i ...
Will Fracking Sink the Dollar and Bring on Global Currency?
May 14, 2013
We're puzzling about why fracking has been applied now by the industry when the basics of fracking have been fairly well understood since the 1940s. We have an idea, and it is borne out of our analysis of dominant social themes ... and a tip of the hat to feedb ...
Fracking, Just in Time to Help the US Economy?
May 14, 2013

G7 Sets Policy for Global Tax Regime
May 14, 2013

Spain's Problem is Europe's, Too

Symptoms Don't Lie
