  • 'It's The Economy, Stupid!' [View article]
    Surprisingly enough most of what you say I agree with totally. In fact I think we should invest more into our community colleges and re-tool skill sets for Brick Layers ,Contractors of all sorts, Machinists ect. We need skilled labor and we should not expect everyone to have Phd's so to speak.. My point is we need to rebuild the industrial base and bring as you say grunt work back. Well put!

  • FATCA: The Road To Hell Was Paved With Good Intentions! [View article]
    You are correct that all are not effected. When FFI's elect to close and limit access to financial services for US citizens to avoid cost associated with compliance that does effect everyone. Secondly, the bigger picture is the effects on the US economy longer term by Divestment of US assets by Foreign Financial Institutions. Thanks for your comment.

    Your right about the bashing, but certainly not just Obama. I am bashing Congress too, both Democrats and Republicans. There is plenty at fault here. My entire point is we need to re-tool and do everything we can to rebuilt our manufacturing base and not the Government base. At least build an environment that corporations will want to domicile here in the USA. BTW unless we do, you can forget about your investments for a long time to come. See you at the polls I hope.

    I agree totally, level the playing field with total tax reform. Tax code does need reforming. Pensions are next to be bailed out and it will be larger than anything we have seen yet. Take a close look at Detroit. Folks its common sense. The tax base there has completely fallen apart and now there is no money for basic services such as Crime Control and public safety, fire. Where is the money going to come from. Will someone please tell me?

  • Return To Bretton Woods: Economic and Investment Implications [View article]
    Great article. I often wonder what the net effect would be if the major sovereignty's were not to show up for our auctions but also dump their existing holdings. I think we would find out how vunerable we really are. Again great thought provoking article
