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. The problem is that none of the policies enacted thus far as worked to mitigate the problem. So, maybe we should consider the possibility of making college available to everyone. That’s a very popular […]

Glass–Steagall is Old News. Really…

Glass–Steagall is Old News. Really…

The election cycle is drawing near, so naturally, there will be no shortage of the talking heads beating the dead horse on this particular issue. 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 […]

Fed Study: Federal Financial Aid Drives Up College Tuition Cost

I wasn’t exactly sure a study for this would ever surface because it really isn’t necessary. Understandably, the issue over surging college tuition cost has been vexing for most people. After all, economics is a difficult concept to grasp, and people (as a collective) usually cannot understand the mistakes they’ve done until some professors in […]

Greece Officially Defaults On Debt To The IMF

Greece passed their midnight deadline for repayment of the €1.6 billion loans to the IMF. Therefore, the nation officially defaults: the 5th time in its nation’s history, and the first developed nation to ever default on an IMF loan. And yes, we do know that Greece as filed for a postponement of the loans. However, […]

Greece Will Default Tomorrow

Greece Will Default Tomorrow

No, this isn’t a prediction. It has already been stated by a Government official that Greece will not pay the €1.6 billion owed to the IMF tomorrow. The lack of means or inability to repay the IMF effectively means that they will default, which makes the referendum all but pointless, considering Greece is having it […]

The Fate Of Greece Now Depends Upon Millions…

Earlier this month, the Syriza administration discovered that Greece didn’t have all €300 million to repay the IMF on June 5th. Instead, the government decided to reconsolidate their arrangement with the IMF, lumping all of their June repayments into one payment bundle of €1.5 billion, due by this Tuesday. Three weeks later, and Greece is […]

Far East Musings & Shadow Banking

I talk about China on twitter, a lot. I often talk about my plans about the region, whether its personal or business related. I usually discuss my dreams in living/visiting Hong Kong one day. Cantonese is also the third language that I speak (the second being Japanese). There is a lot to like and dislike, […]

Greece: Between Tsipras, The ECB and a Hard Place

I haven’t had much time to write about this one, but most people are already aware of the economic and fiscal problems the nation of Greece has been having for years. Its unsustainable level of debt (more than 170% of GDP) and a lackluster economy that makes Americans pretty fortunate to have the problems they […]

60% Of Americans Can’t Cover An Unexpected Bill

Well, it’s almost a good thing that prices are falling, because I don’t know what people would do if they were suddenly struck with a medical bill, car accident or unforeseen property damages. Then again, falling prices probably wouldn’t help most people anyway (considering the bulk of it is in Food and Energy). According to […]
