Who knew! Lower taxes, economy grows

One of the biggest arguments between the right and the left is over whether raising or lowering taxes would be the most beneficial for an economy.  During the Reagan years, lowering taxes coupled with raising interest rates brought about an ending of stagflation, and an economic boom to the United States.  Subsequently, liberal minded Americans would point to the Bill Clinton years as being a true barometer ...

Following Japan’s new plans for helicopter money, one Fed President calls for its use in monetary policy

Japan has been a 30+ year petri dish for central banks around the world to watch and learn from their monetary policies.  And despite the fact that in that time the island economy has gone through five recessions, people have lost nearly all their purchasing power, central banks own over 50% of all market assets, and in 2016 have seen their sovereign debt now issued in negative rates, both the Fed and the E ...

Don’t blame Brexit as global recession and financial crises were here long before UK vote

The powers that be have learned to never let a crisis go to waste.  And in the wake of last month's Brexit vote which they desperately didn't want to happen, mainstream financial analysts and central bankers are now shifting the UK vote into the perfect excuse to blame the oncoming global recession and financial collapse on that event and on the British people. But for any real economist who isn't a paid sh ...

Beginning July 1 will start the trillion dollar selloff of stocks for baby boomers over the next 11 years

Besides the consequences of there being more Baby Boomer retirees than workers to fiscally deal with the insolvent social security program, a new monetary crisis is about to hit the markets in just three days time.  That is because on July 1, the oldest of the Baby Boomer generation will turn 70 1/2, and thus forced to start selling off their 401K, IRA, and mutual fund assets to fulfill their obligations to ...

U.S. overtakes EU in trade with Russia despite U.S. created sanctions against the Eurasian power

The United States has long been a hypocrite when it comes to economic and foreign policies.  They are willing to sanction anyone who exhibits or creates an environment not in line with the empire's whims, but at the same time are more than happy to deal with terrorists, human right abusers, and dictators if it furthers their own financial and political goals. Case in point.  Back in early 2014, the Obama ad ...
