More Erratic Economic Notions From Obama Prolonged uncertainty will continue to limit hiring and minimize commitment to long-term capital expenditures. Only a very few large corporations with plans already on the books to expand capacity will take advantage of this temporarily accelerated tax break. This plan enables an acceleration of depreciation allowances which businesses would deduct over time, as such implementations fit into corporate long-term plans.

Nantucket's Cape Wind Whips Up Hypocrisy After the recent push from the White House and Congressional Democrats for Cap and Trade legislation, and for a Copenhagen Agreement, it is ironic that the Kennedy clan and its Massachusetts friends are campaigning against the Cape Wind project.

Napolitano -" Incompetence In Ascendance One Canadian newspaper in April 2009 asked, in reference to Napolitano, "Can someone please tell us how she got her job?" The question today should be asked of the President, "How can someone this incompetent retain her job, and why has the task become so unimportant?"

America, End Your Fear Of Wall Street Through a century of market ups and downs, interest rate fluctuations, mergers, acquisitions, political influence, lobbying and positioning insiders to the most powerful government and government related institutions, the Kings of Wall Street have nurtured and advanced their isolated power to a point where they are responsible to no one.

Do Not Believe The Pundits On China's Century China has created a massive middle class in a single generation, but it has yet to empower it. China will not soon be supplanting Americans, or Europeans, in the mall line-ups yearning for China-made American invented branded and engineered products. American consumers are unconsciously pushing back the clock on that empowerment of the Chinese middle class through their dramatic behavior modification of the past year.

China's Weak Gambit On A Currency Shift China is calling for a move toward an obscure international currency known as SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) used by the IMF, to replace the U.S. dollar. The proposal on first blush suggests China is concerned with looming inflation in the U.S. and the devaluation of the debt it holds. While a reasonable concern, why would it push for such a dramatic shift?

America's Overnight Transformation On the surface, adding capital to an under-capitalized bank might seem to make sense. Unfortunately, the capital is coming from the taxpayer, and however the Administration camouflages it, this will be a nationalization of banks because the capital injections will exceed current market values of these financial institutions. In any case, this nationalization has already begun under the FDIC, and will accelerate as the largest

A Positive Trend Rising Out Of The Fear A positive trend is imposing itself on the American landscape. The average savings rate, which had been 7.7% in 1992 and even reached lofty levels of 12% in the '70s, dropped to almost zero four years ago and stayed there. In the last quarter of 2008 that trend made a dramatic turn.
