Long Term Bulls Believe Governments Manage Economies Better Than Markets

Apr

Princeton Professor and NY Times columnist Paul Krugman must be feeling the heat. In a recent blog he referred to David Stockman’s March 31 brilliant NY Times oped was “pathetic and embarrassing.” Why do I say Stockman’s article was brilliant?  Stockman’s main point is that, “Sooner or later, within a few years, this latest Wall Street bubble, inflated by an egregious flood of phony money from the Federal Reserve rather than real economic gains, will explode.” Read More

Dec

The US and global stock markets and economies will be immediately negatively impacted by higher US taxes, and that appears where we are headed with or without a fiscal cliff deal.
