  • The next economic boom, writes Daniel Gross, will be created by the efficiencies unleashed by America's transition from an Ownership Society to a Rentership Society. It's not just housing - citizens are getting used to the flexibility of renting across a whole range of goods. "The U.S. economy needs the dynamism that renting enables as much as - if not more than - it needs the stability that ownership engenders."  [View news story]
    Nyuszika please point out to me what part of my post leads you to believe I need to study my history a bit more?

    As far as renting vs. owning, it all depends on what your goals in life are. Owners give up mobility for stability, while renters move freely with no concern. To each their own

    Did he blue ice? Well that's great, I'm not Stalin, this isn't 1921, and this certainly isn't the soviet union. And to Geoffster, thanks for the read recommendation but I'm familiar enough. France is toast for the same reasons we almost were, poor economics. These are brief periods of ebb and flow which must not be mistaken for times to panic. Please don't misinterpret and overexaggerate what need be done. The people who feared individulism in the 60s/70s are now supporting it. Why? Because they support what is convenient for THEM, not what's better for society as a whole. And the silly part is what benefits society as a whole, naturally results in a better life for the individual! Not the other way around, no matter how that temporarily affects your bank account you guys.

    "This great country was formed with the individual in mind."

    Are you serious? I hope you are young in age because you obviously have a lot to learn. With collective effort, each individual will prosper. With opportunity only for some, we grow apart and no one really wins. Of course those who fear change and hide in their homes all day and night will disagree with this.

  • North Korea's much ballyhooed long-range rocket launch ended in apparent failure today, dealing a blow to the prestige of the reclusive and impoverished state that's continually defied international pressure to push ahead with the plan. The Unha-3 rocket broke up and crashed into the South China Sea just moments after it launched.  [View news story]

  • Politicians' talk of $2.50/gallon gasoline isn't realistic, and the U.S. already enjoys the "cheapest energy in the world,” T. Boone Pickens says. He's “frustrated” that legislation which would put more natural gas into commercial trucks has gone nowhere: "You put natural gas... into heavy-duty trucks, you can bring down the price of diesel gasoline. I don’t understand why they [Congress] don’t understand."  [View news story]
    tack do you expect energy independence to happen overnight? our overseas energy business relationships are incredibly complex and a quick severance of ties would be disastrous for the entire globe. also, when the food pantry is full of chocolate (domestic oil) and we know that we can live off of bread (electric, gas), slowly increase demand by nibbling at other peoples supplies, and then export the s*** out of your own when demand is through the roof!! i can picture myself smiling while driving an electric car, knowing that it was paid for by exporting domestic oil $
