The Election Outcome Begins To Be Felt

Let the carnage begin (continue??). The hopes of small and large business were dashed with the re-election of Barack Obama. Many held off making hard decisions based on the hope of sanity returning to America. When that proved to be a false hope, they did what they had to do to protect themselves from the predation coming from Washington. According [...]

Employment Lies

Politics is in full motion now. Does anyone tell the truth? Is either party trustworthy? The answer to both these questions, unfortunately, is a resounding NO! Why is it permissible, even expected, for politicians to blatantly lie to the American people? Why are these charlatans not called out for such behavior? Surely no one believes that national leaders consistently lying [...]

The Effects of Taxes on Economic Well-Being

Empirical tests are difficult in the field of economics. There are many reasons why Austrian economists in particular are reluctant to admit them as evidence for or against a position. Nevertheless, sometimes the data are so compelling that the results cannot be ignored. Certainly the data in the accompanying charts to the right suggest that tax cuts (lower taxes) assist [...]

An Inconvenient Chart

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this chart conveys all you need to know about employment and the so-called economic recovery. Employment is getting worse and there is no recovery!

Jobs Created are Seen; Jobs Destroyed are Unseen

The utter nonsense about jobs created via government spending is never examined by the media. Whatever government tells the State Media, they willingly print and sometimes even elaborate on.

A Job Program That Works

ent from a friend, original author unknown: After the Packers vs. Bills game, Buffalo released their quarterback Trent Edwards. During the Packers vs. Eagles game, the Packers injured Philadelphia quarterback Kevin Kolb. Philadelphia then had to play backup quarterback Michael Vick. During a playoff game against the Eagles, the Packers injured Michael Vick and another backup was needed. After the [...]

Obamanomics in One Chart

Here is the real effect on the labor market as a result of the economic crisis. Much of this is due to Obama and the uncertainty his economic policies have created. When businessmen are unable to calculate the cost of an employee (Obamacare) and are afraid of future tax increases and see no recovery, they are not foolish enough to [...]

Goofy Goolsbee and the Economic Recovery

More information on the recovery that is no recovery at all. Austan Goolsbee, former economic advisor to President Obama and now back in academe, blows smoke regarding jobs. Any present or former political minion has to lie about the state of the economy. The state of the economy is awful and likely to get much worse. As a graduate of [...]

Employment From Three Different Perspectives

Each release of economic data is trumpeted as more good news in an economic recovery. Most of the mainstream media do their best to support the propaganda that government reports represent. Anything beyond a superficial examination of the economy reveals that There IS NO RECOVERY UNDERWAY. Nor can there be a recovery until the debt problem is solved. IT CAN [...]
