  • Pomboy: Fed to reverse course  [View news story]
    Some would argue that Laissez Faire government was a major factor in 1929, 1987, & 2008. Wish it didn't have to be that way but that seems to be the way some are made, greed & thievery.

  • Pomboy: Fed to reverse course  [View news story]
    King, when you take $10-17trillion, various estimates (but will never know), out of the economy it will require time to heal. The Fed had NO choice but to do what was done as most of the central banks globally followed.

    You are also dealing with baby boomer demographics for a lot of the world & that group was the spenders, not so much now.

    Robert,

    In your mind Carter may have been the worst as that has been a very popular theme of those of your persuasion. However, I was a young adult at the time and in 1980, his favorable rating was much higher than Reagan's when he left office in 1988. Then there was a great effort to rewrite history from the right to salvage the party after the disastrous Reagan economy & highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression (10.2%) and Nixon's Watergate. Remember the S&L scandal? Much like, but on a smaller scale, than what we experienced with Bush II.

    "I think anyone with any brains is tired of hearing the left bleat about the Bush administration..."

    Why do you bring up Carter (refer to your prior comment) as being the worst ever? Take your own advice which is ONLY your biased opinion. The facts for Carter in terms of jobs created & lowering the federal deficit vs % of GDP indicate he was quite effective.

    Since 1950, which is 16 presidential terms, Carter ranked #2 in jobs created just behind LBJ full term. The bottom 8 presidential terms in job creation is dominated (7 of 8) by Republicans.

    As to Fed Debt vs GDP, Carter was a -3.3% (negative is good) & ranked 7th of 16. Also, notice the domination of the big spenders. 7 of the 8 biggest spenders were Republicans. Interesting.

    President Carter is an amazing person and is still working, building homes, for the less fortunate. It's been 34 years, let it go.

    Wow! With all the Obama bashing I guess we can expect soon that you guys will start blaming him for the stock market since he came to office since he inherited such a fabulous economy.

    "I don't see much pulling together here."

    Exactly & I don't see much factual information here either.

    As a father to a millennial & X-generation age sons & being heavily involved in their youth sports, schooling & scouting, I learned a long time ago that those age groups were, generally, better behaved & more responsible than we baby boomers (assuming you are a bb). I would also guess, that there are more baby boomers watching the Kardashians than the 2 aforementioned age groups.

    If you want a free phone (which is not free if used) you can take it up with the prior administration as that was when the program was initiated.
