  • Economic Outlook for 2011: Yes, It's Dismal Science, Why Do You Ask? (Part II) [View article]
    <<<in spite of there being no fundamental cause for machines to be idle, factories closed, and workers unemployed. In such an epileptic seizure of the economy>>>

    Straw man and complete c.r.a.p. Since investment is ex ante and consumption is ex post, there is no reason in hell---or in Phoenix in July, the same place---for the two to agree with one another, and the result is fluctuations in employment, output, and profits. Since this is the first domino in your entire article.....

  • As Strauss-Kahn Resigns, Europe's Debt Mess Enters a Sinister Phase [View article]
    Crush the Euro by insisting the Europeans open the IMF to other regional economic powers...and crush the the Chinese by insisting they pony up a few trillion (perhaps a down payment in US Gov't bonds, eh???) before they get a seat at the table.

  • A Sure Way to Drive Gas Prices Down [View article]
    Good article. If the fed was the raise interest rates to 2%, which is about where they should be given the recovery and prevailing price pressures, commodity prices (including oil) would collapse. The initial shock would be negative; but by the autumn lower input prices would end the stagflation we are currently seeing.

    Or in so many words, Obama is Jimmy Carter II and the nation needs a new Volcker and a new Reagan.

  • Pound Soars After BOE Signals Potential Rate Increase [View article]
    Hopefully the Fed will start raising interest rates for the same reason...2% by years end lets hope. This would crush commodities, drawing trillions out of gold and oil and into the productive economy.

  • Interview: Jim Rogers on Long Agriculture, Short Bonds and ... Soccer [View article]
    Apparently those multimillion resident cities which were vacant, and the empty 'bullet trains' connecting them, were not in Mr. Rogers neighborhood when he was in China.

    Analysts were fooled by potemkin villages in Russia for decades. Are the Chinese more entrepreneurial and the 'next in line to dominate the world' than the Japanese in the 1980s? Whatever happened to Japan Inc?

    Look at the prices of some Chinese companies--ABAT as an example---to see the rot below the official figures.

  • The Horrendous Decline in Labor Income Over the Past 4 Decades [View article]
    Old, BORING news. Milton Friedman pointed out decades ago that as the supply of labor increased (more countries entering the world economy in a meaningful way) the returns to labor would fall and the relative scarcity of capital would have an opposite effect.

  • Small cars lead US auto sales higher in April [View article]
    In fact I rather notice a dearth of information from Nissan about how many people are 'turning over a new leaf.' I guess even envirowhackos are starting to see the Leaf runs on Coal, not on electricity. And hasan't the Leaf burnt down a few garages lately? :)
