Six Years After Recession, 93% Of Counties Still Haven’t Recovered…

President Obama’s track record on the economy has always come under scrutinization; more so with the upcoming 2016 presidential election. However, during the final State of the Union address, Obama decided to defend his record on the economy, by stating, “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.” This is most likely […]

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 […]

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 […]

Meet Euclid Tsakalotos: Greece’s New Finance Minister

Yesterday, I wrote an update that Yanis Varoufakis has resigned after the results of the referendum that took place, which resulted in an overwhelming vote for ‘No’ against cuts to pensions and VAT increases. As written by Varoufakis, he resigned to ‘aid the deal,’ hoping that negotiations would go more smoothly. From there, it was […]

George Soros: Greece Is Going Down The Drain

Billionaire George Soros tells Bloomberg TV something I’ve already known for the longest time  that Greece’s chances of leaving the Eurozone stands exactly 50-50; however, he is among a group of hedge fund managers who believes that Greece is going to leave the euro sooner rather than later. Nevertheless, the country is still in big trouble […]

Tsipras: Mission Accomplished…

At least, that is how I’m going to interpret it with his statement on Twitter. We took a decisive step leaving austerity, Memoranda & Troika behind-a decisive step to allow for change in #Eurozone pic.twitter.com/ojt2aVAZY5 — Alexis Tsipras (@tsipras_eu) February 21, 2015 But wait, there’s more. Alexis Tsipras goes on to say, “We won a […]

The Clinton Family Is Having A Bad Day…

Apparently, having a famous politician in the family doesn’t make you invincible. Despite having Hillary and Bill Clinton as a father/mother in law, and having a prominent Goldman Sachs banker in your corner, things just don’t seem to be working out too well for Marc Mezvinsky, the husband of Chelsea Clinton. Marc Mezvinsky’s New York […]

David Stockman: Obama Is Clueless On Inequality

When he is right, he is right. Not on the clueless part (well, not just the clueless part) but the rather disconnect between the Obama Administration and the inequality growing in the country. Its almost as if the president doesn’t seem to understand that he is the cause of the problems he is trying to […]

Things You Did NOT Learn From The State Of The Union

Things You Did NOT Learn From The State Of The Union

The State of the Union is always interesting. Not because the president actually says anything meaningful, but because it reminds people like me that the Super Bowl is just around the corner. Needless to say, President Obama was slightly humble this time around. The total word count of his speech was 6,493 words. This was […]

Obama’s Hawaii Vacation Is Over. Now What?

The First Family was out dining with friends at Nobu in Waikiki, so as far as I know, their vacation ends today (although, it seemed like he never left his initial vacations). So what is on the agenda: After returning to Washington Sunday from a two-week vacation in Hawaii, President Barack Obama will spend the […]
