Challenged by the horde that inundates it, Europe positions itself in its favored pose. It happens to be the inactively enjoyed prone position. As a college wrestler this writer learned that only two shoulders on the mat are worse. Being in a predicament is not the worst […]
Ted Cruz rocked in the presidential race during the CNBC debate. His biggest breakthrough, even more important than his crowd-pleasing holding the media to account, was his credible prescription to get job creation, and equitable prosperity, roaring the way they roared in the Reagan days.
Cruz thereby […]
In 1688 England experienced its ‘Glorious Revolution’, transitioning nonviolently to a constitutional monarchy. As part of the changes associated with that event, control of the money, which had always been the prerogative of all monarchs, was kept from the Crown and (eventually) put in the hands of the […]
Recently social medial and the conservative sphere of the internet erupted with outrage when Rick Wilson, an Establishment Republican campaign consultant, suggested that the Establishment needed to “put a bullet in Donald Trump.” While Mr. Wilson’s choice of words was obviously inappropriate, I think all the outrage on the right unfortunately caused an important point […]
Financial reporter Rick Santelli — who triggered the Tea Party movement — put a profound question to Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in the CNBC presidential economic debate. Santelli’s key question was about the impact of the Fed on job creation and economic growth.
His question and […]
The clueless, corrupt and cowardly House Republican Caucus has done the impossible. By electing Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House yesterday it has made the Chamber of Commerce Party appear even more beholden to the donor class and out of touch with the middle class base that actually votes for it than it already […]
Donald Trump is no supply-sider, as is evidenced by his pro-tariff and restrictionist immigration stands. Supply-side, from its inception, is all about job growth and equitable prosperity. Both would be hurt by such autarkical prescriptions. Trump doesn’t get it.
His tax plan, while superficially supply-side in […]

Today’s presidential hopefuls from Bernie Sanders (avowed socialist) to Hillary Clinton (avowed modern progressive) to George Pataki (avowed conservative) as well as many others, support a federally mandated increase in the minimum wage. The only question to them is how much the next increase(s) should be.
With all the popular support behind Donald Trump, people are no asking the quite logical question of exactly who he is, and what sort of president he would make. Just the other day someone asked me what I thought because, as he said, he found Trump […]
The reaction of the ruling elite and their minions in official conservadom to the Donald Trump surge is best characterized as a hissy fit, an extended temper tantrum that the GOP base isn’t doing what they want them to. The elite and their gatekeepers can’t seem to figure out why Trump is surging and why […]
Coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, the term Davos Man was meant to refer to members of the global elite who view themselves as completely international. They have no need for the term “nationality” and feel that governments are merely shadows of time past to be used as facilitators in their global operations. ~ […]
In his speech of August 3, 2015 President Obama invoked pity for asthmatics in promoting his Clean Power Plan, and did that mainly to forestall criticism of the plan. I am not an asthmatic. But, I am a life-long respiratory-allergy and chronic-sinusitis patient treated by an allergist. So, I do have some empathy with asthmatics; […]
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has long been famous for its extraordinary scenic beauty, its vibrantly authentic “Old West” culture – and since 1982, for its annual economic policy symposium where monetary policymakers from around the world gather to discuss the impact of central banking on […]
Can anyone stop the overweening lunacy of the banking oligarchs? No more than anyone can stop pythons from devouring rabbits at play. Our bankers are not honorable. They are not farsighted. And they have set in motion forces that no human effort can avert. Moreover they long ago formed a deathly co-op with history’s most […]
Re-examining a perennial topic.
You might have gotten tired of the “Greeks” who have dominated the news for the past six months. Since you were, without wanting to know it, closely involved in the consequences, you seem to be wrong. In case you overlooked […]
