  • The Triumph of Davos [View article]
    I agree. Cngratulations to the author for providing me with a full bellied laugh at lunchtime. I daresay the stuxnet virus does more in a day than DAVOS will do in our lifetimes.

  • Alice in EVland, Part III: Cost Benefit Analysis for Dummies [View article]
    Wow...if a holier than thou Liberal Rag like the Washington Post can diss the Nissan Leaf for outrageous claims, unholy subsidies, and range anxiety, the prospect for EVs must truly be dim.

    Whats next? An article at HuffPo suggesting we all buy SUVs?

  • U.S. Energy Policy Is Responsible for Unrest in Egypt [View article]
    I KNEW someone would blame Amerika for this sooner or later! To me all Egypt proves is the advantage of calling out the Ohio National Guard sooner, rather than later.

    The Anointed One looks like Jimmy Carter more and more with each passing day!

  • Examining the Consensus View of Intel [View article]
    Value Line traditionally is very optimistic about our economy, and investing longer term. This puts them in the outhouse at times like this, when pessimism runneth rampant. In an economic recovery (which everyone except a few SA ninnies like Tyler Durden believe is well under way) it is perfectly reasonable to expect margins to swell.

    But thank you very much for showing investors how to 'back out' assumptions by looking at the figures more closely.

  • Has Ben Bernanke broken the PBOC the way George Soros broke the BoE? James Rickards makes the case that the FOMC chair's money printing operation has forced China to either revalue its currency or face civil unrest over spiraling prices.  [View news story]
    Old hat and stale news. Far better leverage in the agricultural markets. If China buys less US debt or witholds rare earths, just cut agricultural feed exports to china and watch food riots within days. Agreeing to provide Nukes to Japan, S. Korea and Taiwan would shake up the Maoists a bit, as well.

  • Four 'Uncomfortable Situations' to Watch in Early 2011 [View article]
    <<As I have stated many times over the past year, a region cannot have just one currency if capital flows within the region are not restricted and if the political entities within the union continue to conduct their fiscal policies independently of one another. >>

    HUH? USA has had both for 250 years. Go Amerika!

  • Another Major Setback for MannKind's Inhaled Insulin [View article]
    Your point is simple: we SHOULDN'T have an FDA, or the FDA should be strictly advisory, much like Consumer reports and other private rating agencies. Doing so would unleash a torrent of private sector investment and innovation which would make America a world leader in medical technology.

  • 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!
