  • Shades Of 2008 All Over Again (Though This Time In Europe) [View article]
    "The moral code behind debt and humanity has officially become a joke as the wealthy bankers of the world continually spit in the faces of the rest of us…."

    With such comments perhaps you would like to reconsider your 'criticisms' of Warren Buffet's dealings with Goldman Sachs and BOFA... after all he has called for raising taxes on the rich

  • The Fed Weighs 3 Policy Options [View article]
    The fed can only do so much and I think this far they have more than played their part. What is left is for the government to actively increase expenditure and certainly scale back on the layoffs that we've been seeing. One way to go about this would be through upgrading infrastructure.

  • Why Groupon Is The Next Google [View article]
    "Groupon could turn profitable today if they wanted to but they would be sacrificing growth."

    I think this is the gold nugget in this article. Even if merchant's make a loss with their first venture with Groupon, if their products are of high value, they will come out of it with a reputation meaning next time not only will they be able to charge top dollars to customers, but they could negotiate better terms with Groupon.

  • A Look Inside The Fed's Limited Toolkit [View article]
    Listen golfitobob, Leftfield, anyone can criticise. Unemployment is 9% and aggregate consumer is plumetting. This article is about finding solutions on a way forward. If you do not have any, you are not only doing a disservice to this article, but also the title of this website.

    I still think alternative 3 but with the fed bank rollin government expenditure leading to fiscal multipliers is the US's best alternative. Best case in point from history is WWII expenses and 'debt' that was never paid off but whose value was eroded by inflation over the years... at no cost to government

  • This Is a Balance Sheet Recession - And It's Likely to Persist [View article]
    Most Nordic countries are more taxed and probably regulated than the US. I think their economies are in better shape.

    Perhaps you need to look up the work of Joseph Stiglitz to better assimilate the implications of free markets?

  • This Is a Balance Sheet Recession - And It's Likely to Persist [View article]
    Main problem facing the US presently is unemployment. Unlike Japan that has its at 4.6% (with 5.5% being there all time high in July of 2009), America's is beyond 9%.

    Unless you can provide successful examples of no regulation and no taxes leading to a rebound from a balance sheet recession, fiscal multipliers are still the best bet.

  • The S&P 500 Breaks March 2009 Lows When Priced in Gold [View article]
    Unfortunately for the author I concur with PVizzle, in fact not only are bond purchases redeemable, they incur coupons...

    But more to the point Bernanke's job is not to prop up the S&P but rather to stimulate the US economy and right now unemployment is plus 9%

  • Zombie U.S. Banks: Turning Japanese [View article]
    I agree Cullen,

    and I think that is part of the reason why China's malaise may not be as bad as some pundits are making it out. The Chinese government does not have to inflate their debt away... a situation that is unlike Ireland's for example.

  • The Downgrade FAQ [View article]

    S&P down graded Japan in 2002. Do you think this was for lack of political will of Japan in meeting its debt obligations or it was just plain obsession of a rating agency over the national debt of a country in a balance sheet recession?

    But the S&P aside you actually seem to believe that the US could actually default on its debt obligations. This is bizarre.

  • Taking Microsoft Over Apple and Google [View article]
    In a way this article goes a long way in highlighting the fundamental differences between AAPL & MSFT. The later has been denigrated to merely a stock for trading but with AAPL... one cannot easily begin to put in words what AAPL represents right now.. their intellectual property arsenal, the service at their stores, the ingenuity in their compact mother boards for the ipad, iphone, ipod, et al... but most of all (for me at least) the ease with which their software ecosystem 'just works'. MSFT has been hankering about the importance of software but it was merely all talk and no walk... AAPL is the pure alpha

  • Microsoft's Monster Moat and Marketing Issues [View article]
    Yeah the international angle is misconstrued but the ideas that nokia has a future with a windows OS or that bing could be commercially viable have not been substantiated.

    As I've mentioned before microsoft was only able to thrive in the late 90s and the earlier part of the past decade because consumers had limited choices and the internet was still nascent.
