  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets On Edge Before Yellen Round Two [View article]
    Wonder that the economy would be like today without the fiscal deficits we have run in the last 7 years.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greek Bailout Extension Clears German Hurdle [View article]
    What was that old movie where Arnold played the Cyborg. In it they got to a point where the "net" became self aware and self actualizing. This is the same thing Killer454 says above. The bureaucrats are now self aware and self actualizing. They seem to be able to do what they want and no one in C-O-N-gress or the JUST(n)ice Department seems to have to guts to smash their heads against a wall and fire about 20,000 of them.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Net Neutrality To Sweep The Nation? [View article]
    Oil Over Supply

    "Within around two months, [onshore storage will] be completely exhausted," Ivan Szapakowski, a commodity strategist at Citigroup, told CNBC last week. "The only remaining storage globally will then be floating storage, tankers."

    Many predicting continuing excess and lower prices. I am still staying away from oil - except at the gas station once a week.

    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.

    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.
