  • Letter: Cummings, Sarbanes support 'reckless monetary policy'

    As the Federal Reserve begins another round of money-printing disguised as monetary policy (Quantitive Easing, Round Number 3), it is instructive to review the congressional scorecard of those congressmen who continue to give the Fed this power....
  • America's China hypocrisy

    America's China hypocrisy
    I can predict a few things with virtual certainty. For instance, in the upcoming presidential debates, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will try to outdo each other in condemning China's economic practices. Their positions will be virtually...
  • Letter: Pension proposal by Kamenetz a gamble for county

    The purpose of this letter is to express my strong objection to Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's proposal to float a $250 million Pension Obligation Bond (POB). Words make it difficult to accurately express my opposition. I believe that it...
  • Germany's plan will make euro crisis worse

    Germany's plan will make euro crisis worse
    European leaders are working feverishly to create what German Chancellor Angela Merkel is calling a "fiscal union" to restore private investor confidence in Europe and rekindle growth. Unfortunately, what she advocates will thrust Europe into a deeper...
  • Don't expect much help from the Fed

    Don't expect much help from the Fed
    The U.S. economy is drifting toward recession, but when Federal Reserve policymakers meet next week, they will have few options. Jobs creation slipped alarmingly in April and May. Wages, which were rising modestly through the recovery, have been...

  • Rick Perry: Macho, macho man

    Rick Perry: Macho, macho man
    Yes, Rick Perry might seem a little, well, out there with some of his public statements. But the Texas governor has something that our current commanded-in-chief lacks: Overt machismo.  And this cannot be underestimated. Macho men have a long history...
  • Lindsay Lohan's awesome anti-Federal Reserve tweet was just an ad

    Lindsay Lohan's awesome anti-Federal Reserve tweet was just an ad
    Just when it seemed that Lindsay Lohan (yes!) was entering a political debate (yes!) about the nation's economic policies (yes!) it turns out Lohan's new-found political views were just a paid advertisement (lowest of lows).  For those of you not...
  • A way around the debt-limit impasse

    A way around the debt-limit impasse
    Contrary to conventional wisdom, the United States does not have to default on its debt, and the Social Security and Medicare checks can continue to go out, even if Republicans and President Barack Obama cannot strike a deal to raise the debt ceiling by...
  • The GOP's 2012 election strategy: Wreck the economy

    It is time to dispel a few myths. First, we are not overtaxed but under-taxed. Federal personal and corporate tax receipts expressed as a percentage of gross domestic product are at 14.1 percent, the lowest rate since 1951. The Bush tax cuts have been in...
  • The Federal Reserve, a nice racket to be in

    I heard the chairman of the Federal Reserve say he's fighting deflation because it would be bad for the government. It would cause less money to be collected in taxes. He was suggesting inflation would be better for the government even though it will hurt...
  • The Donald reveals his decision with humility (almost)

    The Donald reveals his decision with humility (almost)
    Rejected first draft of Donald Trump's final announcement about his political intentions in 2012. First, let me say how proud I am of myself for heckling Barack Obama until he produced the "long form" of his birth certificate, something no white...
