9-11 Conspiracy Fact And How This Implicates Vice President Pence, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Fox News Super Stars…And How This Impacts Personal Finances!

Suppose a scientist at one of the nation’s largest drug companies knows a blockbuster drug has a higher probability of creating adverse side effects than it does treating the disease. Suppose the scientist keeps silent because his bonus is based on the sales of this drug. Is this scientist a criminal? According to the government, this would NOT be criminal activity. If this ever became public, the company would be fined (a small fraction of the accumulated profits) and the scientist would get promoted. (I’m not making this up! This is how the government and its cronies have typically...

We’ve Been Snookered!

Here we go again. Next stop for the national debt is $24 trillion. My guess is the debt will be closer to $30 trillion by 2021. Does it matter? Let’s answer the question first. Then, we’ll do the math. In 2002, in a discussion of unfunded tax cuts, it’s reported Vice President Dick Cheney told the Treasury Secretary, “You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter. We won the mid-term elections, this is our due.” Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill was speechless.[1] In 2009, Elaine Floyd, CFP, wrote, “There will always be plenty of investors interested in buying government...

Trump’s 100 day Evaluation and Beyond

Trump has befuddled his most ardent and intelligent supporters.  What is going on with our neighbor to the south?  The geopolitical peril of USA-Mexico estrangement is that Mexico turns to China as an economic and military partner. This is indeed a problem for the USA, but Mexico’s turn toward China had started before the 2016 election. Trump’s rhetoric may be giving the Mexican authorities justification for this rapprochement with China, but I think it would be happening anyway as Mexico transitions from the regional power it has been under NAFTA to more of a global economic power. It just...

When the Bubbles Pop

  Could North Korea be the pin the bubbles have been looking for? In November, David Stockman advised President-elect Trump to pop the bubbles before he entered office. Looking back on his team-work with President Reagan, Stockman recounted how the Reagan economy crashed after his first year and then the Reagan policies were helpful in the rebuilding. Stockman’s big idea was for Trump to ask for Chairperson Yellen’s resignation on his desk on January 20th. Candidate Trump said the market was a bubble and blamed the Fed’s cheap money.
