Capture a a a a a a

The Fed raised interest rates. We all saw it coming. Despite acting predictably, the nation’s central bank has still fallen under harsh scrutiny, and important questions are being asked. While the president and Congress consider overhauling the way the Fed operates, it’s high time we discussed the nature of the fed, why it’s there and … Continue reading “What’s in Store for the Future of the Fed?”

Capture a a a a a a a a a a aaaa aaa a a

As the Trump administration pushes forward with its work to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, (ACA), his opponents continue to spout their message that he is destroying healthcare.

How can you get oil out from the ground when it lies beneath not just hundreds of feet of bedrock, but an entire ocean as well? During the Obama administration, it was a trick question: you didn’t, instead the previous administration focused on far less efficient energy in the fear of the great bogeyman: global … Continue reading “Reinventing Deep Water Drilling”

Why Has Black Lives Matter Been So Quiet Lately

Capture a a a a a a a a 'pjkKL'KL'HASDFJKL'

In 2016, it seemed impossible to go a full two weeks without a national outrage in the face of police brutality. Black Lives Matter was one of the most influential grassroots movements, and they regularly had the country’s full attention. So far, 2017 could not be any more starkly different. What happened? Did the police … Continue reading “Why Has Black Lives Matter Been So Quiet Lately”

Trump Emerges the Winner in Trump Tax Evasion Case

Capture a a a a a a a a a;jha;KJ

Donald Trump may have gotten the best of MSNBC last week when one of the news network’s finance reporters received a copy of the President’s 2005 tax return in his mailbox.

Obama Vs Bush: Who Was the Real War Monger?

800px-Marines_in_Saddams_palace_DM-SD-04-12222

Liberals seem to get quieter every day that the country improves and moves towards greatness under Trump. Many of their fronts have become quiet over the weeks, and there are few desperate pockets of anti-Trumpism left. As a president, he’ll always be criticized, but the country is coming in line. In light of that, and … Continue reading “Obama Vs Bush: Who Was the Real War Monger?”

How U.S. Exports Are Already Reviving

Shipyard-by-constanta

Trump was one of the first politicians in an age to bring awareness to U.S. trade deficits. His business experience made the problem obvious to him, but most Americans were completely unaware. Slow job growth has largely been due to our lack of exports. Thankfully, Trump has made important promises in regards to the issue, … Continue reading “How U.S. Exports Are Already Reviving”

The Scope of Trump’s Work So Far

Trump_signing_order

Trump hit the gates running when he took office, and he has signed a slew of executive orders. He’s assaulting the problems that were so key to his campaign, and many were taken aback by the fervor with which he went to task. So, just how much has he changed the system after a few … Continue reading “The Scope of Trump’s Work So Far”

The Great Inflation Riddle

Janet_Yellen2

There are few silver linings when it comes to this nation’s monetary policy, especially for those who watch their fortunes evaporate on the whims of Janet Yellen’s great crusade to manipulate unemployment statistics to make Obama look good. Perhaps the only redeeming aspect of the entire Fed is the fact that our taxpayer dollars do … Continue reading “The Great Inflation Riddle”

The Slow Death of American Cars in Europe

eu

Much more than a single ocean separates North America from Europe. Differences in everything from the meaning of football to the edibility of snails make these two regions profoundly dissimilar despite a wealth of shared heritage. Some aspects of our cultures have found mutual overlap, such as the Finnish mobile game Angry Birds or the … Continue reading “The Slow Death of American Cars in Europe”

The Trump Effect: China Makes Big Change in Response to Trump’s Hard Line against Them

Capture a a a a a a';klasdf'aj;ljajlp

Trump and China have developed a rhetoric that many have found frightening. The talks of currency manipulation and reducing trade deficits sound like early shots of a trade war, and such a war could have negative impacts on both countries. For those who have followed Trump’s career a little more carefully, the purpose of Trump’s … Continue reading “The Trump Effect: China Makes Big Change in Response to Trump’s Hard Line against Them”

Luxury Spending and the Wealth Effect

Bride looks over shoulder of her fiance while the walk

If we can say that one man launched the philosophy of conservatism as we know it today, that man must be Scottish economist Adam Smith, whose ground-breaking text The Wealth of Nations set the standards for capitalism as we know it over the past three centuries. Smith explained the value of capital, markets, investments, and returns at … Continue reading “Luxury Spending and the Wealth Effect”

Public Houses and Private Interests

Neighborhood with all its houses up for sale.

You can make a convincing argument that nearly any of the acts of cronyism and incompetence of Barack Obama’s presidency have done or will do long-term damage to our nation. Perhaps no decision he made had greater ramifications, however, than the decision to bail out Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae the two mortgage-security enterprises whose … Continue reading “Public Houses and Private Interests”

The Dream of 3%

The game of professional baseball has enough statistics to occupy the full-time talents of MIT’s entire department of mathematics. However, one statistic looms tall above all others: batting average. That’s because batting average isn’t just a good arbiter of a player’s performance, but a suggestion of their performance relative to the past and the future. … Continue reading “The Dream of 3%”

Trump Discovers Another Shady Practice by Obama and his Administration

For years, the statistic trumpeted by the news media and politicians as proof that the United States trails behind many industrialized nations in Asia and Europe has been the trade deficit, which currently stands at some $502 billion overall, with China accounting for some $347 billion of that and Mexico accounting for $63.2 billion (a … Continue reading “Trump Discovers Another Shady Practice by Obama and his Administration”

In 1962, John F. Kennedy spoke to the nation and the world about the imperative to be a leader in the 20th century’s space race, pursuing the exploration of the final frontier before the Soviet Union could catch up. This speech — given during a halcyon time when the Democratic Party nominated competent presidential candidates … Continue reading “The 21st Century Space Race”

The Bread Deficit

Stop me if you’ve heard this story before: American industry is undercut by cheap, shoddy foreign competition, spurred on by politicians who look the other way.
