  • How the U.S. Economy Has Been Tanking for 60 Years [View article]
    Karl reminds me of J Kenneth Galbraith who made a fool of himself for 40 years after WWII forecasting the 'resumption' of the great depression. Finally they gave em a Nobel Prize to shut 'em up.

  • Pondering the High Cost of Food [View article]
    Just annouce to the chinese that until they open their markets to US products freely and openly, interest payments on US debt will be held in escrow. The collapse of Chinese markets and onset of civil unrest would be swift enough that flight to quality would cause the dollar to soar....killing the inflation problem, to boot!

  • More Budget Stupidity: Could Cuts Hurt Nation's Competitiveness? [View article]
    hahahahah...yeah, contracts! Bedrock of our financial system? Tell that to Americans who paid off their mortgages, scrimped and saved for years for retirement, only to bail out the financially profilage with zer interest rates and currency debasement.

    Why should we pay teachers $60,000 a year to crank out illiterate, innumerate imbeciles? Why should we pay SEIU hacks twice the prevailing wage rate? Why pay judges to put criminals back on the street? Instead, get a good bankrupty judge pro-bono, smash the public employee unions, and the rest, as they say, will take care of itself.

  • A Solution to Predatory High Frequency Trading? [View article]
    Sounds like the financial equivalent of TOT (time on target) artillery shelling during wartime. Launch the orders (shells) at different times to make sure they execute at the exchanges (targets) simultaneously.

  • Nervous About Stocks? Wake Up and Smell the Surge [View article]
    Like most breadth indicators your volume ratios are being distorted by the number of "identical' stocks on the NYSE, specifically the high volume SPY and other etfs. You need to confine your data to say, the stocks in the sp500 only. The I'll bet you'll see your indicator is still infrequent, and accurate!

  • Positioning for a Food Riots Economy [View article]
    Isn;t it funny how socialist polcies always lead to "bad weather,' 'higher oil prices,' and other natural disasters. Back when China was commie they had droughts and famines that lasted for years. And we know that federalizing programs makes things cheaper! Can't wait for those $500 pentagon toilet seats to come to our hospitals.

  • Just How Big Is the Kindle Revolution? [View article]
    I tried "Kindling" and it is about as charming as a scorpion. Go down your local library, grab a Classic like the Iliad or Odyssey, curl up in an overstuffed chair with a nice pot of tea to keep ya warm on these chilly nights, and read for FREE.

  • Despite the Street's strongly bullish slant, earnings are growing significantly faster than valuations, resulting in shrinking P/E ratios even as stocks rise. How this affects markets in 2011 remains to be seen: Will slumping P/Es stymie the rally, or does this indicate there's still plenty of upside?  [View news story]
    Dude! PE ratios have been shrinking since 2000! The last time that happened we had a Pompous president hung up on himself, on government regulation, on higher taxes, a spineless foreign policy, and an energy crisis. Jimmy Carter, meet Barack Obama. When we find our next Reagan, Gingrich, and Volcker, you'll see PEs expand.

  • 5 Areas We’ll Feel Inflation; 5 ETFs to Fight Back [View article]
    Much easier:

    (1) Eat less and mopre slowly. Americans could lose a billion pounds and we'd all be better off for it.

    (2) Walk some more, drive and car pool a bit more, throw on an extra HOODED SWEATSHIRT (much better than a sweater).

    (3) 1 & 2 will help; don't forget preventive care, and support the repeal of Obamacare. Since when did a GOVERNMENT program cut costs? Ya want $500 pentagon toilet seats in our hospitals?

    (4) 2nd hand clothing at Goodwill and Salvation Army is good for the wallet and just fine for your overfed ego.

    (5) Support your local branch bank or credit union and tell B of A to shove their fees where the sun don't shine.

    Use the money you save to invest in quality suggestions which the author has made and get a DOUBLE WHAMMY!

    Yeah and the ordinary citizen is faced with DECREASING costs for computers, software, games, internet access, rent, housing, and countless other items. I pay $0.57 a pound for chicken at our local Price-rite. Oil use per capita has been declining for decades; oil use per $ of real GDP has been falling even faster.

  • Emerging International Shale Gas: Poland and China Lead [View article]
    What is nice is that I see no major opposition to natural gas development. Envirowhackos seem singularly unable to stop the development of clean-burning natural gas.

  • Intel Shows How to Spin Liquidity Into a Solid Bubble [View article]
    Oh for Pete's sake if ya can't understand that numerous crosscurrents exist in a company on the cutting edge of technology in the 21st century, then I suggest you only invest in buggy whip manufacturers or sign on with the long vanished SA double dippers. INTC has some promising technology and has some challenges from Tablets. If that taxes your patience Obama sure could use the revenue.
