  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets On Edge Before Yellen Round Two [View article]
    MWinMD - certainly depends on whether you think any amount of spending can have an impact on "climate change"?

    RIQ - Not sure I understand. The funds I deposit in the CU are the basis for multiple times that in loans to people who want to buy cars or houses, etc. I am actually "stimulating" the economy.

    How much deficit spending does it take to "stimulate" an economy? Seems like that has been ongoing for eternity.

    Anyone following Buffett on his German company buying spree?

    Also, just rolled over CD in local Credit Union at 2.3% for 60 months. How's that compare to your neighborhood?

  • China's Monumental Debt Trap - Why It Will Rock The Global Economy [View article]
    As of December 2014, china held $1.244 Trillion of US debt. Howsabout we just have the Treasury print up $1.244 trillion of hundred $ bills and send it over to them on a ship - or two or three or however many it will take. I think we could do the same with recipients of Social Security payments every month as well. Just pay with printed money. Think about it before you respond.

    Bob123 and RIQ - I am sure you are smart enough to convey the points of the "link" in some way that suggest there is any resemblance to what would be commonly accepted teachings of "the big JC".

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Help For The Economy From Housing? [View article]
    Bud H. Rather than just throw a grenade, why do you say "billionaires are substantially undertaxed". Please kindly tell us why you think so and what you think should be done, if anything about it?

    Bob123 - seriously. I won't even give your link a look considering that attached to it is the name of Al Franken. If you have something substantive to say about the issue, then go ahead - let's hear your thoughts.

    No Bob123 - seems like the left would be more than happy to have all businesses be non-profits, so long as they distribute their profits to the "poor".

    And you contention that "the big" JC himself clothed the poor and fed the hungry is fundamentally false, save for a few miracles he performed. His message was that we should all "voluntarily" do that, and not that anyone should be "forced" to do that via a government bureaucracy that extracts money from citizens and sends it places they might not otherwise care to see it go.

    Tony - that's no "productivity", that's "re-productivity" :-)

    Here we go again.

    If you don't like the income gap, then stop shopping at WalMart and every other big business that provides a service of value that is generally happily used by the "poor".

    Do you seriously think that such business should become "non-profits" and provide their services in purchasing, logistics, etc for free? Well guess what would happen to their stock prices and your 401k value over night?

    We've been taught that we will ALWAYS have the poor among us. Perhaps there is a good reason for that - one having to do with how we individually treat them.

    Maybe we have enough data to suggest that we made some wrong decisions in messing with the family and leaving our values and morals outside the school system.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Business Growth Gains Momentum [View article]
    And it resets people's expectations. I suspect it was fundamentally responsible for a shift in perception of what the Japanese emperor's role and position really were after WWII.

    Crademan - no disrespect taken. Perhaps my sentence structure was not very good. And yes, I do believe that many people have been led astray, IMHO because they did not understand simple Christian doctrine, or they did not understand the nature of their obligations under such doctrine.

    Many people like to be led and are reluctant to understand or assume their individual responsibility.

    I think we are on the same wavelength.

    Hard to understand what the alternative would have been and how we would have reacted and adapted, since we never went down the path.

    Crademan - "It does make sense that disaffected human beings would to turn to a theocratic solution dictated by a higher power when people's lives have gone awry; when children have been abused, when the economy collapses and there are no jobs. "

    Thank goodness in my Christianity, I understand that the theocratic solution is a solution of voluntary submission to a set of doctrines. The higher power outlines the natural laws that bring about happiness and invites all to participate if they wish.
