  • Douglas C. Lyons: America's 'new normal' will bring higher food prices

    A few years back, I came up with a new economic indicator to chew on – the cost of bacon. I admit I freaked when that popular part of the pig went north of $6 a pound. But that was back in 2011 when the country was still grappling with the effects...

    Author: Financial crisis cemented dollar's global role
    In contrast to just a few years ago, you don't hear the shrill cry over the dollar much anymore. In the early 2000s, during the 2008 financial crisis, and amid the political rancor over the U.S. debt ceiling in 2011, the doomsayers were out in force....
  • Fiction and fantasy in finance: What's to become of the euro?

    PARIS -- The American rating agency Standard and Poor's warned 15 European nations on Monday, including Germany and France, that unless they solve their currency problems this week, to the satisfaction of S&P, a business corporation, this company will...
  • Euro must have reform, not Americanization

    PARIS -- More than two decades ago, the Delors plan for European currency union was initially proposed. Some of us asked whether eight, 12 or 15 different European economies, with their distinct budgets (and budget priorities), fiscal situations and...
  • Siena conference further evidence of stalemated euro zone

    SIENA, ITALY -- The European Union is at risk of being destroyed by the euro. The credit crisis founded upon the swindle by Wall Street that was retailed to Europe's banks has created divisions in Europe which are undermining what was supposed to be...
  • Would a stronger European federation even help?

    PARIS -- The belief widely held is that enlarged federalism is the appropriate response to the economic crisis provoked by the Wall Street credit crash. Why? Fundamental to the crisis is the degree of federation it already has. Seventeen economically...
  • McManus: Fuming about gas

    When the price of gasoline rises, the supply of hot air expands. Just look at the recent GOP attacks blaming President Obama for prices that exceed $4 a gallon in some parts of the country. Not only is Obama responsible, according to some Republicans,...
  • Elections could shift EU away from austerity, but should they?

    PARIS -- The weekend elections in France and Greece seem widely to have been taken, at least on the European and American left, as a solution to the great European economic crisis. The Greeks will hold another election, which a leftist coalition may...
  • A right and proper death of the euro

    PARIS -- When the proposal was initially made for a common European currency, it seemed to this writer to be a good idea, with the flaw that it wouldn't work. Although inexpert in economics (being a product of the age of arithmetic), it struck me as an...
  • McManus: Can Obama sell 'chained CPI'?

    McManus: Can Obama sell 'chained CPI'?
    President Obama won't release his proposed budget for 2014 until Wednesday, but liberals and AARP have been howling all week about something they expect to be in it. What has our president done to provoke such outrage among his supporters? He's...
  • Can the EU be saved?

    PARIS -- It is not simply the euro zone that is threatened by the dramatic economic discrepancies that now exist among its members, as well as the large indebtedness gap that exists between the southern members of the zone and the German-led bloc of...
  • McManus: Merkel intent on keeping Eurozone united

    McManus: Merkel intent on keeping Eurozone united
    Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's impossible prime minister, has committed almost every sin that modern politics affords. He entertains barely-of-age girls as overnight guests and brags about it. He appoints business cronies and television starlets to government...
