Crickets: Fed Official Finds No Evidence That $4.5 Trillion In QE Accomplished Anything

August 21, 2015 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Imagine if, in 1987, a Federal Reserve official could have pointed to a poorly performing economy and said, “Gee, this supply-side economics hasn’t worked out very well.” The press would surely have treated the story as a front-page item and ensured that it got air time on the Big Three networks’ then-dominant nightly […]

How Crazy Is It?

October 9, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba How crazy is it to keep telling people the economy is recovering when everyone knows the “stimulus” was a complete flop and unemployment is up?

Education Bail Out, Or Is It?

February 6, 2009 by


BAILING THE FAILING Tom McLaughlin Similarities between federal government “helping” the economy and “helping” public education haunt me. Government bails out failing businesses now the same way it’s been bailing out failing students and failing schools. Will Democrat Big Government fix our economy? I’ll answer that question by asking another: Has it fixed public schools? […]

TRILLION DOLLAR BABY Satire by Shawn Goodwin Two weeks ago, Barack Obama was sworn in as the nation’s 44th president.
