  • Interview With Ethan Harris: 100,000 New Jobs Per Month By 2012 [View article]
    Harris has always been an honest commentator, as far as I'm concerned. I've talked to him for many years, and he does see things in a staightforward way with good vision not prejudiced by public relations influences. But that's just my opinion ... and my trees, especially the non-weeping cherry in my front yard, appreciate the buckets of rain we've been getting here in Connecticut almost every weekend this summer, yesterday and today.

    margin call, anyone? That's a contraction all right, but it has nothing to do with the economy at this point.

  • Interview With Merrill Lynch's Ethan Harris: Middle East Is the Top Economic Concern [View article]
    Does anyone have skepticism about the Republicans' drastic economic plans -- cutting, cutting, and cutting to the point of forcing serious additional waves of unemployment -- , which many economists think are not only foolish but dangerous, leading to a second recession if they get everything they want, mainly to placate the interests of the rich foks who bankrolled their election to the detriment of the vast majority of average Americans as well as poor Americans?

  • Nariman Behravesh: Jobless Rate to 8% by Year-End [View article]
    I agree that the overall picture for those who are not wealthy ... the poor and the middle class ... appears dismal and that it's dismaying to see the ideologues in Congress hypocritically proselytizing about their surefire cures, like immediate massive deficit cuts (to please the wealthy corporate backers who paid for their re-elections) sure to make the economy and the people most in trouble careen over the edge. Congress will survive the wreckage, and the rest of us will spend years trying to mop up. I can't wait for the next election. Of course, this is all my personal view, and I've certainly been wrong before (most notably that shoveling snow won't aggravate a hernia).

    Thanks. Mickey is always thoughtful and smart. There are other sensitive questions I wish he'd answer, but of course he can't.

  • Interview with Nicholas Perna: 'Hard to See a Significant Rise in Stocks' [View article]
    disgusting is the right word. the distortions, misstatements, and refusals to specify the details of nonsensical proposals by politicians and the ads make a mockery of democracy and insult voters, whom these people obviously think are either stupid or able to be totally influenced by mere repetition. I am very pessimistic about our nation's future when our Congress refuses to make efforts to solve the most serious problems and instead make winning elections as the only priority. will the voters do the right thing and oust these imposters and install people with intellectual integrity, creative ideas, and leadership ability? What do you think?

  • Andres Carbacho-Burgos: Recovery Will Pick Up by Mid-2011 [View article]
    Good. Making rolls of Charmin kills too many trees, so maybe you just saved one. And your alternative? Just say no? Leaves and grass? Much better economically ... and there's tradition (thousands of years of it), so bravo if that's your bit to save the economy! Also, Andres happens to be a smart guy who is well aware of the ratings scandal..
