  • First, the tax cut compromise... then, hiring Bill Daley as chief of staff... now, a government-wide review to "root out... excessive, inconsistent and redundant" regulations "that are not worth the cost, or that are just plain dumb."

  • Obama's "economic fish stories," claiming that the stimulus was several times more potent than his own chief economic adviser believes, are becoming embarrassing. The numbers so lack credibility, they might as well have been pulled out of a hat.  [View news story]
    You were sold a snake oil salesman and you bought it hook line and sinker..the press was on Obama´s side so they NEVER said a bad thing about him....we to this day do not know to much about his history....its all shut off...why??? Why is there so much to hide. i would hope we can learn from this..but as you saw today from Bernanke...he could have been upfront as to what he was going to do..but he spoke in one understands what is going on..and that is very dangerous for a country...someone has to come out of the shadows that will tell the truth...and its bad..but also tell who he is going to fix it..the truth....its no longer the next election..its the survival of this Country.....IMHO

  • Former Clinton economic adviser Laura D’Andrea Tyson describes how the "vicious circle" of income inequality leads to educational inequality, which then perpetuates the wealth gaps in the U.S. Tyson also notes how poverty is much higher in single-parent families than in those with married parents. But while she wants to increase taxes for the rich and pour money into education, she stops short of advocating policies to strengthen marriage. [View news story]

  • Tim Cook (AAPL) testifies at a Senate hearing on corporate offshore taxes. "We don't depend on tax gimmicks," Cook asserts, while pushing for a big overhaul of U.S. corporate tax code. "Apple has always believed in the simple, not the complex." Sen. John McCain isn't satisfied with Apple's defenses, claiming the company "has violated the spirit of the law if not the letter of the law." Sen. Rand Paul has strongly defended Apple. "Congress should be on trial here for creating a byzantine tax code." (previous[View news story]
    This is not Cook´s problem..its congress for writing such stupid laws..but gets them lots of political donations when they write these stupid rules....that is why its so complicated....each special interest donates to the politician they love that writes their way....

  • Americans watch protests against oppressive regimes that concentrate massive wealth in the hands of an elite few. Yet in the U.S., 1% of the people take nearly 25% of all income - an inequality even the wealthy will come to regret, Joseph Stiglitz writes. The top 1% may have the best houses, educations and lifestyles, but "their fate is bound up with how the other 99% live."  [View news story]
    you want to know what is unfair....over 50% of the people in this country pay NO INCOME taxes....over 50%...they should pay skin in the risk...

  • Government payouts - including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment comp - now make up more than a third of U.S. wages. “The U.S. economy has become alarmingly dependent on government stimulus,” says one economist, and the numbers are bound to get worse as Baby Boomers move into retirement.

  • Whatever happened to the “Texas miracle,” where the "modern conservative theory about budgeting" - never raise taxes, and budgets can always be balanced by cutting waste - supposedly worked, Paul Krugman asks. Texas may now have a $25B hole to fill, so "if the theory can’t make in Texas," he says, "it can’t make it anywhere."  [View news story]

  • The Obama administration apparently heeds the pleas of groups who call a potential foreclosure moratorium "catastrophic," and Yves Smith laments that Obama has thrown his weight behind banks rather than borrowers. But with Goldman Sachs (GS) the latest to freeze foreclosures, there may be nothing he can do to stop the train wreck.  [View news story]
