A Blatant Lie About Austerity

March 25, 2011 – Comments (7)

Call it a form of self-mutilation, but I keep going back to the NY Times to read Paul Krugman.  And his latest article starts off with a blatant lie: "Austerity advocates predicted that spending cuts would bring quick dividends in the form of rising confidence, and that there would be few, if any, adverse effects on growth and jobs; but they were wrong."  [more]



I can't find ONE reason NOT to buy stocks!

March 24, 2011 – Comments (6)

Once again, the stock market is up, and why not!  The American stock market is nothing but a huge buying opportunity.  Job creation is milder stronger than the pessimistic forecasts.  Industrial sales are only slighter lower than their reduced expectations.  Consumers are going back into debt because of reduced wages.  Inflation, other than the essentials for life, are up a mild 2.1%.  The 3rd largest economy should be back on its feet within a year or two after a devestating earthquake and tsunami.  The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should wind down by 2025, and we may be out of Libya by then too!  [more]



The Chinese MUST Float there Currency

March 18, 2011 – Comments (10)

Bernanke has said it.  Obama has said it.  Geithner has said it.  Economists have said it.  And now, leading by example the G7 has decided to intervene and stabilize the Yen, because floating a currency isn't good if the markets decide it is worth too much or too little.  [more]



Don't Believe The Motley Fool

We're In the Eye of the Storm

March 04, 2011 – Comments (8)

With so much excitement, the bulls have exalted in the 110% gain in the S&P 500 over the past two years.  They act as though the bears have been caught with their pants down, and maybe some like Robert Prechter have been, but this bear (that's me) and many others have not.  We've been predicting the inflationary rise in stock prices and a false recovery since QE Zero was launched by buying out trillions in bad loans.  [more]
