Easy Fix: Wall St. Financial Transaction Tax Scorned by GOP

Ever since I began this web site in 2011, (to try to explain of the 2008 crash, to try to understand why we have a ceiling insead of a floor on Social Security earnings subject to tax, why we were trying to dismantle the Post Office by requiring a non-profit, non-taxpayer-funded organization to fund a…

The U.S. Economy: What Happens on November 7th, 2012?

 Since it’s election time, with all the expected bickering, shouting, blaming and finger-pointing that comes with it, my question is this: regardless of who wins, what happens on November 7th? A few weeks ago, I wrote an article showing in very clear detail illustrating that the GOP campaigns going back over a generation have not…

Romney’s Economic Plan–Shhh It’s Not Really His

The reason Mitt Romney’s 5-Point Plan sounds familiar is because it’s not really his;  the GOP Economic Plan hasn’t changed in 30 years, regardless of the economic conditions.  Throughout the Republican “preliminaries” I kept getting the feeling that I had heard most of what the candidates were saying before. Turns out I’ve heard Mr. Romney’s…

We Can Still Repair This Broken Economy

Repairing the broken economy would be an easy homework assignment for any sober, realistic economist. We can fix this broken economy but we desperately need Congress to grow up. The main problem with the U.S. economy is the intrusion of politicians where they don’t belong. Politicians are simply not equipped to search for, much less implement solutions.…

GOP Austerity Gobbledegook De-bunked: Again!

If the majority of U.S. voters are stupid enough to buy into the GOP economic austerity gobbledegook and swallow their crazy, backwards, delusional, cockamamie economic theories, we deserve another Great Depression. I hate to admit it, but my dad may have been correct. He always told me that people generally get what they deserve. Last…

Must The GOP Always Use Fuzzy Math?

Once a discussion of Austerity vs Stimulus economics begins it’s clear that for either to work properly, it must be implemented in the same balanced manner as a math equation. Both sides of an equations, regardless of layout, format, methodology, or complexity. One plus one not just does equal two, one plus one MUST equal…

The Cure for the Republican Economic Bird Flu

The Republicans/Conservatives have infected the global economy with an economic bird flu crisis. Luckily there is a cure. The type of economic crisis that we are in consists of two distinct stages. We are now in the second and increasingly lethal  stage. This crisis is global in its scale and degree of its reach. It…

Don’t Be Fooled-The GOP is Anti Capitalism

Capitalism is not perfect and is vulnerable to both human nature and some major flaws that have flourished since the Presidency of Ronald Reagan. In order for true Capitalism to function correctly, the government has to counter the flaws of capitalism, without hindering the market place, and provide a level playing field to insure competition…

Austerity vs The One Penny Solution

Paul Ryan, the GOP in general and European policy makers either just don’t get it, or they’re  trying to return us to the time where there was a Spanish Pope name Borgia (daughter Lucrezia), or my theory that Republicans are Neo Confederates is fact, not theory. To hear any of them talk, one would think…
