Why Small Government Is Better

I’ve written at length about what I see as the biggest need in the United States today: renewing limited government. Why?

Economic Assured Destruction – Why On Earth Would We Agree to Play That Game?

The other day, I was talking with an acquaintance at the local Beverly Hills “Peet’s Coffee Shop” and he told me that we shouldn’t start a trade war with China because as their middle class develops that will be a great market for US Companies. Well, I understand that concept, surely I do, and I am a patient sort of chap, one who thinks long-term, heck, I run a think tank, and indeed, I’ve obviously considered all that the prior, so I concur on the future prospects of a nation with 1.3 billion people, and an incredible emerging middle class….

Have We Found An End To The Financial Crisis?

The latest news from the Eurozone concerning their attempts to try and control the debt crisis involves the ECB (European Central Bank) lending money to the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and then the IMF lending that money to the troubled nation states. This whole charade is due to the fact that enshrined in a European Union treaty is a ban on the ECB purchasing national government bonds from the participating countries in primary auctions. The reason for the ban was specifically why some Eurozone governments are now pressing to have the treaty overturned.

Euro Zone Crisis – Will It Destroy The US Dollar?

How High Unemployment Hurts the Employed

In a time when our unemployment has hovered around 9% for over three years it is tempting to think of our unemployment problem as one that affects only the people who cannot find work.

Nehru and His Effect on Indian Economy

Nehru is rightly reviled by many historians for his blunders on the political front Vis a Vis China and Pakistan. He helped create the Kashmir problem by agreeing to a cease-fire, promised a plebiscite and imposed Article 370 while he lost 30,000 square miles in Aksai Chin in Ladakh to China. But now many economists are ruing his economic policies as well which took India back to almost 0% growth rate.
