Let “progressives” Own the Fiscal Cliff

Let “progressives” Own the Fiscal Cliff

The Federal Reserve plans to keep short-term interest rate near zero until unemployment drops below 6.5 percent and inflation reaches 2.5 percent.  This means given the current equations used to calculate those numbers, Fed interest rates will remain at current lows until mid-2015 or beyond.

Dollar slides ahead of Fed meeting outcome

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the monetary policy-making body of the Federal Reserve, is meeting for the second time in so many days to determine what actions, if any, to take to help America’s flagging economy.

QE3: Seriously?

QE1 QE1 launched on November 25th, 2008 with a Federal […]

WashPost Front-Pager on Collapsing Net Worth Missing One Word: 'Obama'

WashPost Front-Pager on Collapsing Net Worth Missing One Word: ‘Obama’

A new economic report from the Federal Reserve doesn’t offer much hope. On the front page of The Washington Post,  Ylan Q. Mui underlined ”the Federal Reserve said the median net worth of families plunged by 39 percent in just three years, from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010. That puts Americans roughly on par with where they were in […]

My Vindication On Gas Prices

On February 25th, I posted an article titled  ”Gas Prices: Why Your Outrage Is Misplaced” (found here: http://t-j.cc/ykuhsa), Where I said: #1 – Gas prices are at the levels they were in the late spring/early summer of 2008. (Graph 1) #2 – Inflation has spiked tremendously since the same time in 2008 – when gas prices […]

Gas Prices: Why Your Outrage Is Misplaced

. It seems that Americans are enraged – yet again (sarcasm intended) – with the price of gasoline. Is this outrage justified? Not when you take a few things into consideration.     #1 – Gas prices are at the levels they were in the late spring/early summer of 2008. (Graph 1) #2 – Inflation […]

Ron Paul: Sage Grandfather or Crazy Uncle?

I find myself intrigued with Ron Paul on a regular basis. The man can get up and say some of the most patriotic and sensible things in one sentence and then in the next sentence sound like he just came out of an insane asylum. Paul has great ideas when it comes to fiscal responsibility, […]

Audit the Fed - HR 459

End The Fed… And Replace it With What?

Whenever the subject of eliminating the Federal Reserve is raised, there is an inevitable question posed: What would replace it? This question leads to one of the most common criticisms levelled against the “End the Fed” crowd: Eliminating the central bank and giving control of monetary policy to Congress would result a situation like Zimbabwe, where the national […]

Fed's Bernanke Props Up EU With Loan-sharking Scheme

U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has reached out to Europe in what is being mischaracterized across America as just another European bailout.

Dealing With the Occupations

I’ve heard a few libertarians who get a little bit defensive of how the Occupy Wall Street movement is treated, and for a while I wondered why that was. Every conservative I know has been very critical for obvious and good reasons. As a conservative libertarian, I usually reserve judgment, but as usual I fall […]
