Hillary Clinton Can’t Explain Why Obamacare Cost Are Soaring

Such a mystery… Of course, the answer to this thought provoking questing is to simply offer more subsidies, because that has worked so well for us in the past… 2,506 total views, 6 views today

Sanders’ Scandinavian Welfare Confusions

Bernie Sanders, more often than not, is wrong about many things. This is because, more often than not, Sanders is confused about many things. One of the greatest sources of his confusion involves his love lust for the social democracies of the Scandinavian countries. It’s a particular, especially among the progressives, that socialism and welfare […]

College Should Be Free, But Not For The Reasons You Think

I’ve already discussed the problem with skyrocketing tuition cost, and the many factors (well, the only factor) attributing to that growth.

Glass–Steagall is Old News. Really…

Of course, Glass-Steagall was never an economic/financial issue in 2008, nor in 2012. Not because people are worried about this issue (the Roper Center Archive reports that only ONE poll […]

The Nightmare On Wall Street

The end of the trading week has begun, and the start of a new nightmare begins, as this week marks the worst week for stocks since 2011. Not to mention the Dow experienced the largest point drop since the financial crisis. Um, ouch? And I know I’ve played this meme plenty of times before, but […]

Pointless CEO Pay Ratio Rule Is Pointless

This is also what happens when you allow just anyone to write, draft and propose laws for our financial sector. As a result, you get this rather pointless and silly CEO Pay Ratio rule, as a requirement for the Dodd-Frank Act of 2008. Some small background into the fact, as a response to the 2008 […]

What Happened To All The Freelancers?

What does it take to be a business owner these days? Not much, especially with technology. You have the success of private car or ride sharing technology initiated by Uber. You also have AirBnB, which basically allows people rent out their own homes, apartments or property, bringing substantial supplemental income to ordinary people. Then, you […]
