Bernanke-care is creating liquidity addicts

| October 25, 2013

As a student of economics, a business manager and as a hesitant investor, I’m concern about what is going to happen when the Federal Reserve finally pulls the stimulus intravenous therapy? It is likely that Fed Chairman Bernanke is worried about weaning the stimulus too, by the fact he hasn’t started to taper. It is […]

Rep Paul Ryan: “Permanence to plan and invest”

| September 9, 2011

Like him and his policies or not, it would be great if all politicians were as succinct and committal as Congressman Paul Ryan.

There is a small window of opportunity and a limited number of dollars available for each state to stimulate consumers to upgrade their existing appliances with […]

President Obama’s first press conference

| February 9, 2009

President Barack Obama pushed for public support to get behind an economic stimulus plan Monday evening in his first press conference.
