Car Sales and Economic Retail Sales – Know the Reality of Economic Indicator Figures

During the Bush Administration auto sales were added into retail figures, and I figure this was to boost sagging retail sales figures during the turn of the century when we really needed help with consumer confidence. The auto sales are still in the mix today, even though they are not doing us any favors when judging actual retail sales. One question might be; should auto sales really be thrown into the retail sales mix? Many believe so, as sales tax is charged in each auto sale, and if you keep those numbers out then sales tax does not jive with retail sales figures.

Garage Inventors and Local Incubators For Economic Growth Considered

Garage Startups have the advantage of doing more with less, but it is very easy to outgrow a garage, this I can attest too. But even before that happens these innovators, the life-blood of new ideas and concepts need assistance.

God, Country and Gold – Why Global Economies Are Failing

12 step programs speak frequently for the need of a “Higher Power” in one’s life to overcome addictions and the problems they cause. For many of us, God is that Higher Power. As a higher power – there are many things I look to God for. He sets many of the rules I try to live my life by.
