Banks and nonperforming loans IF TRUELY BUHARI GOT THE A 27MILLION NAIRA PLEASE ADD IT TO NONPERFORMING LOANS. WE ARE *** SURE THE LOAN WILL NOT BE PAID BACK IF YOU HE LOSES THE ELECTION.Paffcomm The recent disclosure by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) that the nation’s commercial banks recorded N400.57 billion in their Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) portfolio is disturbing. Such huge bad debts have far-reaching implications on the solvency and profitability of the banks. A statement by Dr. Sarah Alade, Deputy Governor, Economic Policy at the CBN revealed that the bad debts were recorded between August 2013 and August this year. This figure indicates an increase of N56.31bn or 16.36 percent, up from N344.26bn recorded within the same period last year. The statistics also show that gross loans by the banks increased by 21.03 percent from N9.278trn in August last year, to N11.229trn in August this year. One of the immediate results of the high non-performing loans is a squeeze in the financials of the ban ...

A study by the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) found that undocumented immigrants paid $10.6 billion in state and local taxes in 2010, a figure that includes $1.2 billion in personal income taxes, $1.2 billion in property taxes, and more than $8 billion in sales and excise taxes. The study found that undocumented immigrants are “likely paying about 6.4 percent on average of their income in state and local taxes,” which is a tax rate close to that of “taxpayers in similar income situations and, in many states, can be higher than the effective tax rates paid by upper income taxpayers.” An April 2013 Social Security Administration report estimated that undocumented immigrants and their employers paid $13 billion in payroll taxes. And according to a recent Harvard University study, undocumented immigrants’ payroll contributions to Medicare totaled more than $3 billion each year. Immigration reform itself would reduce the deficit by $820 billion over the next two decades.
The Servaas Letter In July 1991 a team of economists from the Industrial Development Research Centre (IDRC), a Canadian aid organization, visited South Africa to *** the development of, and capacity for, economic policy-making in the ANC. This was the result of a pledge by Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney to Nelson Mandela that Canada would assist the ANC in developing its understanding of economic matters. Following the recommendations of the IDRC the ANC during 1982 created the Macro-economic Research Group (MERG) to construct a visible macro-economic model. The team comprised local and overseas economists and later developed into the National Institute for Economic Policy (NIEP). The dominance of foreign economists was a bone of contention. One of the minority of local team members, Stellenbosch University 's Servaas van den Berg, made disquiet known in a letter to Trevor Manuel who was the Head of the ANC's Department of Economic Policy at the time. Van den Berg complained that not since colo .. ...

Online booze ban: Lawmakers target internet alcohol sales: Main sponsor of the bill, United Russia MP Viktor Zvagelsky, who also chairs the State Duma Committee for Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship, suggests “banning the distribution on the internet of any offers of remote sales of alcohol,” and allowing state agencies to block sites that post such offers. This could be done either by the consumer rights watchdog or by the state alcohol control bureau. The bill also restricts the sales of alcohol through various sales and coupon programs and selling liquor in sets with other goods if such tricks lead to dropping the price below the minimum limit set by the state (currently 200 rubles ($5.5) for half liter bottle of vodka or any other drink that is 39-40 percent proof). Zvagelsky claims that internet alcohol sales are on the rise and this practice poses a risk to practically all aspects of state regulation in this area. Additionally, online sales of alcohol put the lives and health of Russian citiz ...
Students pay hefty price for corporate tax breaks Posted March 2, 2014 3 comments TAGS: ALEC, Citizens for Tax Justice, corporate tax loopholes, tax fairness By Amanda Litvinov A comprehensive new study shows some of the nation’s most successful businesses paid little or no taxes between 2008 and 2012. TAKE ACTION › Tell Congress to close corporate tax loopholes and fund schools instead! SIGN THE PETITION› Tax handouts to the 288 Fortune 500 companies that were profitable each of those five years cost the nation $362 billion, according to the study by Citizens for Tax Justice and the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. Corporate tax subsidies are part of the reason there is never enough money to pay for critical programs and services that benefit us all–things like universal early childhood education, grants for all hard-working students to access higher education, and full funding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Because state corporate income taxes are typically based o ...

Economic Policy conference getting underway here in DC Larry Summers and Alan Greenspan speaking this morning
"The rise in U.S. income inequality in recent decades is largely due to massive wealth accumulating at the top of the income scale. The press and popular culture treat this phenomenon almost as if natural forces were guiding it -- an invisible hand dealing out different shares to different people. But the hands doing the dealing are in fact quite visible. They belong to the directors of the boards of the major companies in the U.S. and around the globe. One key source of wealth at the very top is the pay of the executives of our largest companies. That pay is approved by corporate directors, who are themselves paid for their service. Many of those directors are also executives at other companies, meaning they sit on both sides of the arrangement….Salaries for top executives and payments to board members are all publicly available inside shareholder filings, but have never been displayed in an easy-to-explore way. Researchers at the Center for Economic Policy and Research compiled the data, and The Huffi ...
  In reply to Gerry Lydon's 'Spiritualised?' article in the January '99 issue of "The Alternative Source" (the student magazine of Maynooth College, Dublin), I would like to pass on the answers that The Bringer of Truth and Light (Christ) gave, two thousand years ago, to some of the extremely good questions Gerry has asked about spirituality. Firstly, if you believe that Good should conquer Evil you are not an atheist in the true definition of the word. You don't have to go to church at all to be religious, in fact, the true definition of the word religion is 'bonded obligation' and that obligation is to God (The Ruler of The Universe) and His Commandments, Laws, Statutes, Judgments, Economic Policy etc. contained in The Torah, which is the name given to the five books of Moses. The original scrolls of which, are contained in The Ark of The Covenant, which is buried at The Hill of Tara in Co. Meath* and copies can be found in The Old Testament of any Bible. As none of today's churches follow, or teach pe ...

MECEP: Jobs Report Shows Improvement but Maine Has a Long Way to Go "Too many Maine workers still have not found a job or are stuck in part-time jobs that do not pay enough to support themselves and their families" Augusta, Maine (Friday, December 20, 2013) The Maine Center for Economic Policy (MECEP) issued the following statement from executive director Garrett Martin concerning the November employment report released today by the Maine Department of Labor. "The decline in the unemployment rate from 7% to 6.4% over the past three months is encouraging. Along with the nation, Maine's economy is recovering slowly but steadily, and hopefully this downward trend in unemployment continues. We still have a long way to go. Four-and-a-half years since the official end of the recession, Maine has regained, on net, 9,900 of the 29,100 payroll jobs lost as a result of the recession. On a percentage basis, that puts us near the bottom of all states in terms of overall recovery. Furthermore, wage and income statisti ...

"The rulers of America are despotic elites who are living in fear and trepidation of their own people and of people power around the world rising in rebellion against the misrule of capitalism." - Finian Cunningham of Veterans News Now   Cunningham's statement is true except the reference on capitalism.   With the increasing tension in global politics and economics, expect that capitalism will be continually associated with the despotic elites. It is natural, for misconceptions about capitalism is widespread. In this article, I glean eleven unpopular facts about capitalism from the book of the strongest defender of free market economy - Ludwig von Mises himself.    In chapter 1 of "Economic Policy: Thoughts for Today and Tomorrow", Mises presents the true nature of capitalism. By reading the chapter, I encounter at least eleven misconceptions about capitalism. The distinction among these misconceptions is fluid and you can find an overlapping among them.   First, most people are unaware about the h ...

How Green Should Economic Growth Be? The Huffington Post May 23, 2013 Marcelo Giugale World Bank’s Director of Economic Policy and Poverty Reduction Programs for Africa First dilemma. When your country sells its oil, copper, or timber, it is actually swapping one asset for another: out goes a natural resource, in comes cash. Your national wealth has not changed. Now, if the cash is invested wisely, you might be better off -- rather than leaving hydrocarbons, minerals, or trees sitting idle, you would have healthier children, more educated workers, better infrastructure and so on. But does that mean that you should drill, mine or cut-down as much and as soon as possible? Second dilemma. An investor is about to build a huge clothing factory that will employ thousands of poor people in an otherwise hopeless town where unemployment and decay have been rampant for years. These are well-paying jobs, badly-needed tax revenues and, if things go well, a shot at attracting other investors. There is a catch though ...

Hugo RIP - Great article by Paul Craig Roberts, ex Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy:
Obama just appointed Walmart, right along with Monsanto and Wallstreet Hedge Fund Managers, to the highest offices in our nations' government. The Corporatocracy just got stronger, and the American people, just got weaker. Obama has chosen the worst and most disreputable. Throughout his tenure, he has ignored the best, brightest, most honorable and well qualified. He chose cabinet and other top picks he should have spurned. He chose Sylvia Burwell as new Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director. She replaces Jeffrey Zients. She's president of the Walmart Foundation. She's a Trilateralist. She's a Council on Foreign Relations member. She serves on MetLife's board of directors. She belongs to the Nike Foundation Advisory Group. She's an Aspen Institute member. She serves on its Strategy Group. It's an elitist club. It's international and influential. It's comprised of businessmen, politicians, bureaucrats, and like-minded figures. They're up to no good.

Good Morning folks. Here are a few burning issues you might want to comment on.. 1. At the declaration of independence on midnight 5th March, 1957, Kwame Nkrumah and the Big Six promised Ghanaians a particularly beautiful country, to be built and nurtured by all Ghanaians. This morning we are asking the young generation. Is this the Ghana that was promised by the Founding Fathers on the declaration of independence? If YES, great! If NO... how do we get back on track? 2. It has been said by many - both pundits and novices that Africa's problems is tied strictly to its lack of enforcement of laws. Ghana is no exception. Why can't we enforce our laws??? 3. The Minister for Finance Hon. Seth Terkper will tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 present the 2013 Budget Statement and Economic Policy to Parliament on. The budget is expected to focus on the continuous stabilization of the economy, infrastructure development and accelerating growth that will sustain the confidence in the future of the Ghanaian economy.

Around 9:30am on February 13th a small AFSCME Retiree delegation from Ohio met on Capitol Hill with Senator Sherrod Brown's Director of Economic Policy, Chris J. Slevin and Jennifer Waits, another member of his staff concerning proposed cuts in social security, medicare and medicaid; immigration reform and sequestration, which is slated to occur on March 1st, 2013. We commenced discussion of our concerns by asserting that regarding social security, medicaid and medicare, we know Senator Brown is on our side and we just wish to thank him for his support. Concerning immigration reform; it would be helpful if Senator Brown would elucidate in his newsletter his prospective policies for immigration reform, especially the best avenue to facilitate citizenship. One member expressed serious concern about cuts in education should sequestration occur on March 1st. Education is vital to obtaining living wage employment. If cuts are made to education people will find it difficult to obtain the training they need and ...
Via Deon Coetzee: THE unprecedented assault on South Africa’s rhinos may be part of a deliberate strategy by wealthy foreign speculators to drive rhinos to extinction so they can reap windfall profits from selling massive rhino horn stockpiles. This is the surprising suggestion from a group of American and Dutch economists who compared the profitability of strategies to manipulate the supply of rhino horns to reap maximum financial returns. Writing in a recent edition of the Oxford Review of Economic Policy, economists Charles Mason, Erwin Bulte and Richard Horan suggest that stockpiling rhino horns and other commodities from rare and endangered wildlife species has become an increasingly attractive proposition for unscrupulous financial speculators. In their paper, “Banking on Extinction: Endangered Species and Speculation”, the researchers note that as wildlife commodities become increasingly rare the prices rise steadily, and once supplies run out, speculators who have hoarded rhino horns would . ...

Mike Huckabee Want to save the Earth? Stop working so hard! A liberal think tank, the Center for Economic Policy and Research, suggests that Americans could help prevent climate change by working fewer hours. They say that by putting in 40-hour weeks with only two weeks of vacation, we’re generating too much carbon dioxide. But we could reduce that if we just worked less and consumed less – and I’d add, earned less. They suggest starting by cutting our work hours to 30 a week, which Obamacare is already handling for a lot of us. They call it “adopting a European schedule.” I think they’ve forgotten that because we’ve already adopted European spending, European deficits and European government expansion, many Americans have to work 60 hours a week at three part time jobs just to survive. The study’s author suggests that we can be just as productive thanks to advances in technology. But how will technology keep advancing if scientists work only 30 hours a week? Personally, I’d say if you r ...

"Virginia already has a regressive tax system, with the richest 1 percent paying a 5.2 percent effective tax rate, while the poorest Virginians (those making less than $19,000) pay 8.8 percent, according to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. Increasing the sales tax is only going to make that disparity worse, while making those who don't use the state's highways pay more for their upkeep." (ThinkProgress, January 14, 2013)

TUESDAY LIVE BUSINESS DAY Top news World Bank chides Nigeria, others over poor statistics The World Bank has decried the quality and relevance of data from Nigeria and other African countries, which it described as largely obsolete. The bank’s Director, Department of Economic Policy and Poverty Reduction Programmes, Africa, Mr. Marcelo Giugale, stated this in a report at the weekend. He expressed concern that a lot of money had been invested in improving statistics in a lot of countries in the continent, explaining that most of that money came as donations from well-meaning rich countries. Finance Minister, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala He said a report tagged: ‘Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century,’ had revealed that between 2009 and 2011, Africa received $700 million to build up its capacity to collect data. He stressed that communication technology is what would revolutionise African statistics. Giugale added: “First, we don’t really know how big (or small) many African ec ...

Leading Economists Call for Immediate Action to Avert "Fiscal Cliff” & Address Long-Term Structural Issues with U.S. Economy Testifying before the Joint Economic Committee yesterday, two top economists urged our elected leaders to move quickly on averting the “fiscal cliff” and to come to terms on how to address long-term structural issues with the U.S. economy. Kevin Hassett, Director of Economic Policy for the American Enterprise Institute, indicated that allowing the nation to go over the “fiscal cliff” would cause a recession in early 2013. In his opinion, it would be more effective to reduce spending than to raise tax rates. He stated that an agreement that addresses the long-term structural problems would have more of an effect on hiring than a temporary extension of emergency unemployment insurance benefits and the payroll tax holiday. Mark Zandi, Chief Economist with Moody’s Analytics, advised lawmakers to take a balanced approach in dealing with our current fiscal woes. Specifically, ...

Dear Sebastian, I wanted to tell you... I totally disagree with you, well, not totally. We come from the same school of thought. Libertarian. However, I just love the true and dirty way you express yourself. The cussing and spiting and the bad spelling... You're totally anti-establishment and would have been a great political leader like your grandfather, or a revolutionary like Che Guevara. You have the energy and the power that it takes. Hurrah to you Sebastian! But in Economic Policy, and perhaps in Philosophy, you kinda suck. There are numerous variables to take into consideration. The world is not just Black and White. It's every color. You are young and like many of them, even your own dad, tend to be an Idealist. Plato is dead my friend. And so are his neo-platonic demagogues, that killed tens of millions of people in WWII. And the materialistic Aristotle is too. The soul, art, beauty, do exist.

"RELEASE: CRI - Center for Economic Policy and Analysis RE: Does Governor Markell deserve a “D”? DATE: 11/9/2012 In their recent “Fiscal Report Card on America’s Governors,” the CATO Institute gave Delaware’s Governor Markell a “D”. The basis for the grade was that over the past four years the Governor has increased taxes (i.e., personal income, gross receipts, corporate franchise, cigarettes) while plunging ahead on state spending. Is a “D” a fair grade? First, the responsibility for the grade of “D” must be shared equally with the state legislature. The legislature passed all the tax increases and all the state budgets. And other constituencies in Delaware share part of the responsibility as well. The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce, for example, did not oppose any of the tax hikes. Second, is an increase in taxes such a terrible thing? Every credible analysis of the differences among states’ economic growth rates shows that relatively higher taxes deter growth. Analysis of ...

Before you cast your precious vote, and it is precious, please think about some issues: A. Economic Policy 1. Given that the economy was fresh into a recession when Obama took office, his first year numbers are understandable, but why, when the average time for a recession to cycle is historically 13 months, FOUR YEARS later we are still in a down economy (the last three quarters have each been worse than the last one) and with all of the so-called stimulus, we have over 23,000,000 still unemployed, around double the people on food stamps??? It painfully reminds one of the joke “I’m from the Government, I’m here to help…” 2. Early in this recession, the top 5 banks that controlled 53% of all of the US wealth were deemed by the Administration to be too-big-to-fail, so we had unprecedented BAIL-OUTS all around, and now the top ten control around 82%??? Is that progress in the right direction? 3. All of the media touted election-year hype of the Real Estate Market improving and prices rising - th ...
Foreign Policy: FAIL. AlQaeda is active, dangerous and directly attacking American interests abroad. Benghazi is the tip of a huge iceberg of a failed policy of apology and weakness that has emboldened our islamic ememies and resulted in a nuclear capable terrorist regime in Iran. Economic Policy: FAIL. $5.1 trillion is wastefull spending and stimulus has resulted in 7.9% unemployment, 47 million families on food stamps, 1 in 6 Americans in poverty. We are on the path to $20 trillion in debt and have not had a budget in nearly 4 years. Energy Policy: FAIL. Billions of US tax dollars have been wasted on green energy companies that have gone bankrupt, while proven energy producers like coal and oil have been regulated to the brink of collapse. The refusal to authorize the Keystone pipeline resulted in the loss of a million jobs and the failure to create as many as a million new jobs. Gas prices are nearly double what they were 4 years ago. Internal Governance: FAIL. This president promised a civil and trans ...
Economic Policy vs Social Policy. After months of campaigning it really just comes down to this doesn't it.
President Obama has done on numerous occasions condemn Mitt Romney's policies. He states that Mitt Romney's Foreign Policy is that of the 1980's and his Social Policy is that of the 1950's and his Economic Policy is that of the 1920's? History has shown those periods he stated are great prosperous and thriving times in American History. Why is it so bad to go back to something before, that was obviously working? Like I've always heard "In order to get where you are going, you have to remember where you have been"

I'm amazed at how many people actually thought the President's jab last night was clever: "You seem to want to import Foreign Policy from the 1980s, Social Policy from the 1950s, and Economic Policy from the 1920s." You mean the 1980s Foreign Policy which led to the US becoming the world's only superpower in the 1990s? The only discernible Social Policy from the 50s I can think of is segregation, which I mean honestly if you believe that's coming down the pike you're beyond help. And...The Roaring Twenties...The Roaring Twenties...
One of Obama's quotes last night: "you want our Foreign Policy from the ’80s, Social Policy of the ’50s and the economic policy of the ’20s" Now breaking it down, I'm failing to see what's wrong with wanting that. Foreign Policy of the 80's was one of strength and world-wide respect as the Cold War peaked and we were the lone Superpower to face off against the one other Superpower on the planet. Social Policy of the 50's, families were strongly knit together taking care of each other, the single income family was common place allowing for families to grow. Government involvement in day to day family life was minimal at most. Economic Policy of the 20's, mmm they were referred to the Roaring Twenties for a good reason. Some of the greatest leaps forward in being an industrialized nation showcasing itself on a world stage hapened during this time. So tell me what is wrong with policies like that.

libertarian roots of the tea party The Cato Institute is an American libertarian think tank headquartered in Washington, D.C. Founded as the Charles Koch Foundation in 1974 by Murray Rothbard, Ed Crane and Charles Koch.[6] In July 1976, the name was changed to the Cato Institute.[6][7] According to the 2011 Global Go To Think Tank Index, Cato is the 6th most influential US based think tank, ranking 3rd in Economic Policy and 2nd in Social Policy.[8] The Institute was founded in December 1974 in Wichita, Kansas and initially funded by Charles G. Koch. It changed its name to the Cato Institute in July 1976.[6][34][35] Libertarian economist Murray Rothbard was a core member of Cato's founding group and coined the institute's name.

The response to the global banking crisis will never soak up enough blood to restore suspension of disbelief. Austerity measures and corporate bailouts place the destructions of predatory capitalism on the back of the large majority of society to ensure profit for a few. Why should we be forced to accept an even colder capitalist reality when its own crisis disproved its insistence the logic of capitalism is self-sustaining. 21st century predatory capitalism - neoliberal economic policy - does not sustain itself. And it can only feed on society for so long. Rome. Expansion. Collapse.

Mis-use of Gandhi by BJP Aide to Prime Minister A. B Vajpayee and BJP leader Sudheendra Kulkarni on Tuesday said that Gandhi's philosophy of spinning wheel (charkha) and internet converge so far as bridging the gulf across caste/class and national boundaries. "Internet can be called 'avatar' [incarnation] of Gandhiji's spinning wheel that has brought people together bridging the gulf", added Kulkari who has just authored a book on this theme. I think, it is yet another attempt by the Hindutva forces to misappropriate Gandhi. Gandhi-- in his writing at least in theory-- talks about self-sufficiency, swadeshi, and Hindu-Muslim unity. The BJP could hardly show any of its party programme where Gandhi's ideas have been implemented. The BJP continues to be a facilitator of foreign capital, a champion of neo-liberal economic policy, an apologist of imperialism. Overwhelming Muslims still continue to see the BJP as a threat, and rightly so. Narendra Modi was involved in anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat while Gandhi a ...
France is sliding into a grave economic crisis and risks a full-blown “hurricane” as investors flee rocketing tax rates, the country’s business federation has warned.
I try not to be a conspiracy theorist but, I always wondered why our poorest neighborhoods were flooded with drugs, our schools were neglected and given short shrift , that good jobs would be sent to China and that would be celebrated instead of condemned, that trickle down would continue to be an economic policy republicans would double down on inspite of it's total failure, how we could be talked into going to war for oil, that eduaction would be revised so that the Japanese internment was determined not to be racist that the slave trade would be called just a commercial business endeavor, that the rich have the duty the right to run , rule and buy government as they please, that some religions would be used not to uplife, spread love , empathy and encourage but to beat down and vilify people. This is truly a NEW WORLD ORDER as George Bush senior spoke of. Our world has become as close to the theme of George Orwellian books ( 1984 & Animal Farm) as you can get !

Dean Baker writes The Wrecking Society: Economics Today: The amount of damage being inflicted on countries around the world by bad economic policy is astounding. As a result of unemployment or underemployment, millions of people are seeing their lives ruined. The current policies have led to trillions of dollars of lost output. From an economic standpoint this loss is every bit as devastating as if a building had been destroyed by tanks or bombs. And people have lost their lives, due to inadequate health care, food and shelter, or as a result of the depression associated with their grim economic fate. If an enemy had inflicted this much damage on the United States, the countries of the European Union, or the countries elsewhere in the world that have been caught up in this downturn, millions of people would be lining up to enlist in the military, anxious to avenge this outrage. But, there is no external enemy to blame. The villains are the economists, still mostly men, in business suits. [...] The economi ...

Corruption is one of the most pressing social problems that Bangladesh confronting today. Corruption is plaguing all development efforts and remains a major stumbling block to the realisation of basic human rights in Bangladesh. Corruption has two main impacts on the society irrespective of political and social system: firstly, it has distributional impact as it promotes social inequality by causing unjust enrichment of some of the people at the expense of well being of vast majority of people. In most cases, poor and most vulnerable people are the direct victims of corruption. Secondly, it undermines the credibility and legitimacy of the public institutions. Corruption affects quality of governance and public service, violates trust and confidence bestowed upon public bodies by the public. Corruption retards economic growth, reduces the effectiveness of foreign aid, and lowers the flow of foreign investment, and creates a climate of secrecy, which in turn, contributes to the inefficiency of the public ad ...

Zuma declined an invite to debate economic policy wth Zille saying he has enough debates wth women [in reference to his 6 wives]
My brethren and sisters and friends, in keeping with the spirit of the keynote address of our beloved President, I desire, if the Lord will bless me, to speak to you about the American heritage of freedom—a plan of God.
Just found another number, 351 million for both parties in September. If trickle down economics works what could happen with 351 million dollars? My sister worked for HP and got laid off but the day the let her go they ushered in 3 children to take her job. Why not hire the 3 people so she could expand her workload and do it properly? My point is trickle down economics requires the goodwill of the business owner to hire staff as he sees needed. If he doesn't he can burden his staff with extra tasks. Which happens often. Trickle down is a failed economic policy.

So Hellen Zille wants to debate Zuma about the state of our economy and Zuma is running scared..lol!, this is funny considering the fact that Zuma doesn't even know which economic policy his government is using infact the poor guy can't even spell the word "Economy"...Zille stop picking on the poor proffessor from Nkandla.
Corruption: if we can’t win the fight, can we live with it? Many scholarly articles on corruption give the impression that the world is populated by two types of people: the ‘sanders’ and the ‘greasers’. The ‘sanders’ believe that corruption is an obstacle to development, while the ‘greasers’ believe that corruption can (in some cases) foster development (Toke Aidt in Oxford Review of Economic Policy, 2009) We find that corruption slows growth and/or reduces investment in most developing countries, particularly small developing countries, but increases growth in the large East Asian newly industrializing economies. The latter finding provides solid empirical support to a country case literature that explains the East Asian paradox––the combination of high corruption and high growth––in terms of stable and mutually beneficial exchanges of government promotional privileges for bribes and kickbacks (Michael Rock and Heidi Bonnett in World Development, 2004) Corruption is a popular t ...
To all my Democrat cousins, we need to vote for Gary Johnson. He's probably related to us somewhere back, and his economic policy is better.
Whatever obama accuses anyone else of doing, he's actually the one doing it. obamacare alone has 16 new taxes that directly hit the middle class. Medicare is more than doubling for seniors. Premiums are going sky high. Gas and food are cutting deep into middle class budgets. Again this year, we have a TRILLION dollar deficit. It's unsustainable! Romney/Ryan 2012!

On 12/26/11 I advised investing in quality equities. To date the Dow is up 8.5% not including dividend income. Now, with the lacluster debate performance of the President, and the demented debate performance of the VP coupled with the brewing fallout from Libyagate there is a distinct possibility that adults may once again be put in charge of economic policy. Business has inventory and cash on hand and is waiting to invest. I have seen it. When free enterprise is once again respected, rather than pilloried , things are going to explode! The small investor will re-enter the market, there will be jobs for young and old. At long last, better days are coming! I'm totally geeked! Investors should take a look at good old Fidelity Contra Fund(up 17.2% since Jan 1, FCNTX). Remember, free investment advice is worth just what you pay for it. As always, I remain sometimes wrong, but never in doubt.

The McGill professor examines the impact of what the PQ has been promising.
My take for the day. As the elections loom we must make sure to get the Federal government out of the way of American ingenuity and entrepreneurship so we can find our way back to freedom and prosperity. We need to make fundamental changes to the federal government so it is dramatically smaller,leaner, and less burdensome. Only Romney and Ryan can offer this solution. We need hope and change for a new and stronger America with a strong economic policy and a sound Foreign Policy which offers no apology.

for folks that complain about our economy, I have to ask you, did you like it better when our stock market was losing 500 points a day and crashed to below 6000 (currently it's at over 12,000) and our nation's credit rating was downgraded for the first time ever in our history? I think it's better now. I think Romney's economic policy is exactly the same as Bush's and I can't understand why doing the same thing over would get different results or why we would want to stop doing something that has us moving in the right direction? All economic indicators and measures are trending up - including housing. That is a trend I don't want to risk reversing. Just sayin'
