  • Chevrolet Volt's Failure Foreshadows Tesla's Fate [View article]
    I do not have a tesla, do not own stock in tesla and am not a "tesla fanatic" but I still did not agree with this article. I would very much like to own a purely electric vehicle not because I am a "Go green guy" but because I am a "get off the reliance of big oil guy" I can not even afford the Volt at this point and to be honest with you have not been very impressed with GM products that I or my family have owned in the past. I also feel that the "Big automakers" have been in bed with Big Oil for a long time which is part of why I would prefer to go with a company like Tesla that does not seem to be in that bed, or interested in being in that bed. So when gen 3 comes out and if it is something I can afford I will look at owning one.

  • Hatzius: Taper yes, but policy ease also coming [View news story]
    Bottom line is still the same. QE has done nothing to help the economy as a whole. Yes, it may have helped to prevent deflation but that again has only helped the top because real wages have gone down for most of the working class and the inflation caused by QE that is not really being reported has hurt the working class whose income has not kept pace. So in both regards it is a program that is designed to help a minority of the economy while hurting the rest of it.
    No new jobs created and prices still going up even though wages aren't. How exactly is that good for the average person?

    QE has been worthless for the economy as a whole. It was designed from a top down model that has done nothing but sure up banks balance sheets and inflate stock prices. Remember, Publicly traded companies do not hire because they earned extra profits for their stock holders. They hire to keep up with production or increase market share which happens when people have jobs that pay a living wage and they are buying goods and services. The economy is like the oil system in your car, If the oil pump breaks down it doesn't matter how much oil you pour into the oil pan because if it isn't flowing through the system the system still breaks down. This is all that QE is doing is adding money to the balance sheets at the top and it is sitting there doing nothing to improve the economy as a whole.

  • Apple Shareholders Need To Focus On The Future [View article]
    I had my nokia phone for 5 years, replaced it with another nokia phone I had for 5 years then replaced that one with an iphone3G which I handed down to my wife when I replaced it with the 4 which I traded in for my 5, my wife is still using the 3G but will probably upgrade to a 6 when it comes out. So yes the iphones are decent quality but not really any more durable than the nokias were. Difference is now I use my phone for a lot more than just making phone calls and upgrading to the newer technology is more alluring than it was when all I was doing was talking on the thing.

  • Facebook: Bored Teens Surface In Full Force [View article]
    She goes to FB when she is bored is supposed to be a bad thing because she is not "engaged"???
    Give me a break, how many girls go to the mall when they are bored and spend a fortune of their parents money???
    I don't think that her being bored is any reason why advertisers are going to be less interested in marketing to her.

  • Tesla: Very Disruptive And Extremely Irrational [View article]
    Heck, Will there be much of a middle class left to buy a Tesla the way things are going? QE hasn't done anything to help the poor or the middle class and the divide is getting wider and the middle class are dissappearing. By 2020 how many fewer people in that demographic will even exist given the way the economy is heading? Just saying publicly traded corporations don't hire because their stock prices are up or because they are making extra profits for their stock holders. They hire to keep up with production or increase market share which happens when people have money to spend and as long as the QE doesn't flow down through the economy that isn't going to happen.

  • Labor market softening. Why taper at all? [View news story]
    The QE is not helping the general economy anyway. It is helping the banks and the market but not mainstreet one bit. It is based on a "Trickle down model" and is not getting down to the middle class or poor and thus it will not create jobs because companies do not hire people they don't need just because there shares are up. They hire to keep up with production or increase market share which happens when the poor and middle class have money to spend and they spend it. As long as QE is being distributed from the top down it will have little to no positive results for the economy as a whole.
