  • The Stock Market Rebound Is Coming [View article]
    Great article, Kevin. My sentiments exactly. I suppose I'm one of those ghost buyers that isn't showing up on the radar.

    It's remarkable how many otherwise seasoned investors are willing to put their money where their ideology is: as if being right and making money were the same thing. I'd rather be wrong and make money hand over fist any day.

    But if they're willing to sell me AAPL for under $500, hey. Keep it coming. ;-)

    I don't accept the contention that the deficit is a credit card or that the U.S. can "max out." The debt is a drag on growth, but not a lethal one at present. If the U.S. continues down this road, a Japan-type implosion from debt service is possible...in 2050.

    The Supreme Court outlawed secession in 1869 (Texas v. White).

    Dunno. No such problem with my iPod Touch 4th Gen. Which version of iOS are you using?

    There are more "no reason" moves surrounding post-IPO FB than any defensive investor should be comfortable with.

  • The Fiscal Cliff... Of 1937 [View article]
    There was a lot more marginal tax rate to cut from in 1960 and 1980. Clinton raised the marginal tax rates - tax receipts rose then, too, along with economic output.

    That would either be a very liberal application of the word "Bolshevik" or a complete misrepresentation of the word "etymology."

  • Has Paul Krugman Gone Too Far This Time? [View article]
    We've had social laboratories in both the U.K. and Europe engaged in a profound demonstration of austerity for the past 2-3 years. The results speak for themselves.

    You appear to be correct.

    Dear Jason,

    It would significantly compress refining profit margins by increasing the cost of overhead as a % of gross revenues.

    Have you read the news, btw?

    This will most likely bring oil prices down in the medium term by gradually de-emphasizing the Middle East.

    Best, Kyle

    Not to insert myself here, but I doubt that will ever happen due to the unique benefits that the petrodollar confers on the USD.

    Sounds like a reasonable comparison to me, if you were to include things like geopolitics, crop subsidies, and the rising price of arable land. Thanks for reading, JS!

    The couple of days figure is actually the length of time that the Northeast Megalopolis could survive without imported food. I probably should have been clearer to what I was referring to.
