It is amazing at how often economist can be wrong, and yet most of us listen to predictions made. We want to believe what is said will come true. Most importantly I think for politicians Keynesian economic ideas are popular to push in that those promotes the ideas that government can solve most if not all of our problems. All to often though that doesn't happen.I have not read the book yet, but plan to order a copy of John Stossel's new writing in the future, NO THEY...
There are many outside factors that will influence this Presidential race. I have to imagine Europe's problems is a large factor. Iran and the possibility of war is another. Probably the biggest determinate concerns our own economy in the US. It is doing poorly. Recent data I was reading shows it doing even poorer of late. Everything that has been money, enormous amounts of money printing, historic stimulus has failed. "America’s Slowing...
It would be nice if a green project came along that worked well at providing energy, wasn't all that costly and created jobs. Sadly so many ideas promoted by greens have turned out poorly with crony capitalism involved when government financed the ideas. I'm not all that surprised in recent polls showing a great many Americans and Europeans loosing faith in green leadership and ideas. And with falling belief I'm doubtful many politicians will stick their necks out on...
It is troubling at how pricy college has become. And from what I've read a good amount of the price increase comes not from improved education, but from colleges adding expensive luxury items to attract students. Universities have little incentive to control costs. Government subsidizes their spending. And sadly in the end it is young students being left with large debts and all to often a poor eduction experience. Until Universities have incentives to control costs,...
I'm not a smoker, and never have been, but recall this story by a doctor on how he overcame his smoking addition. "Stopping smoking the easy way" http://www.drbriffa.com/2011/03/22/stopping-smoking-the-easy-way/
Well, that is the theory that the Buffet rule will raise money. I recall reading in the UK a similar law was passed to what is being talked about here. So far new revenue projects have been off. "Surprise: UK’s Version of ‘Buffett Rule’ Failing to Bring in Expected Revenue" http://michellemalkin.com/2012/02/22/uk-buffett-rule/
Thought that Dr. Briffa had a nice write up on the observational study. "Red meat kills? It’s flagrant bias that’s killing me…" http://www.drbriffa.com/2012/03/15/red-meat-kills-its-flagrant-bias-thats-killing-me/ excerpt: "....This review is accompanied by an invited commentary from Dr Dean Ornish – a proponent of low-fat eating and a noted vegetarian [5]. He concludes, in a word, that the answer to the question of whether red meat is bad for us is ‘yes’. But he can’t...
Saw that Sarkozy was taking a more populist stance now due to sagging poll numbers. It seems to be working, though he remains behind. If he looses will be interesting to see what happens to the EU. Seems Francois Hollande isn't interesting in continuing down the same road of bailouts. "Sarkozy Panderfest Begins" http://blogs.the-american-interest.com/wrm/2012/03/14/sarkozy-panderfest-begins/
From what I'm reading, seems the President might want to rethink his 2012 re-election strategy. It isn't working out all that well at the current moment."Obama’s Poll Troubles Suggest His 2012 Strategy Is Backfiring"http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2012/03/13/obama-poll-troubles-and-2012-strategy/snippet:
Something that might be of help, in most states it is possible to order your own medical tests. A couple places offering this service are: http://www.directlabs.com/ https://www.labcorp.com/wps/portal/ I've also ordered home tests and have had success with them. This is where a kit is mailed to your home, and then you mail back a sample of blood or saliva for testing. One place I've bought those from...
