Drugs, guns, and despair: How America is killing Americans American life expectancy has declined. There's no foreign invasion. No war within its borders. No one to blame but ourselves. How then, is America killing Americans? Most reports point to three things: drugs and alcohol, guns, and despair.

Trump's trials and tribulations in 2019 In the last two years, the Republican majority has prevented any real investigations of Trump in Congress. In January, however, they'll be reduced to an impotent minority that can only whine and moan. Trump will do his best to hide behind the theory that a sitting president cannot be indicted. That will be challenged. Mueller, and everyone else, is moving up the chain.

Trump might be leading the US to another meltdown The idea of working people making more money, and themselves, perhaps less, has zero appeal. The only thing left to do is change the rules. They know perfectly well they can enrich themselves selling rubbish. If they bring the house down, someone else will pay the cost. Hence, they push for deregulation which eventually will bring down the financial sector, as has happened before.

Neither Bolton, nor Trump is the real problem Bad as Bolton is, he is not the problem. Bad as Donald Trump, who brought him back, is, he's not the problem. The problem is "them" -- Republicans. Self-designated conservatives.

It's time to end this silly farce of Labor Day. It's time to end this silly farce of Labor Day. No one celebrates labor. I mean no one. A few months back I suggested to Arianna Huffington that Huffington Post have a Labor section. They have business -- as do all major publications -- style, black, latino, green, religion, good news, travel, weird news, comedy, celebrity, parents -- but not labor. They have recipes, home, do it yourself, body, spirit, and...

Renewing the Bush Tax Cuts Is Like (this is a contest) losing all your money with Bernie Madoff, then convincing the rest of your family to break him out of jail so they can invest all their money with him too.

Weird Tax Myths #2 -" Recessions, Depressens & Tax Policy Tax hikes end depressions & recessions by stimulating the economy. Tax cuts cause crashes & lower the GDP rate of increase. The right wing passion for tax cuts is a bought & paid for propaganda service. If we fail to put in place sane tax policies we are heading for another crash.

Weird Tax Myths MYTH #1: Tax cuts create jobs. Tax increases cost jobs. All Republican politicians, and many Democratic ones as well, make the claim that tax increases will prevent small business people from hiring. Indeed, it may force them to fire people. Alright, we expect politicians to say loony things. But we have a right to expect reporters to break out in hysterical laughter, economists to... to say how ridiculous that is...

An Ode to Spring (of Banks We Sing) Lo, yon derivative swaps have taken wing. 'Tis an ode to spring. 'Tis of banks we sing. Oh so recently, richly, wildly over-inflated, their lending rooms are now tightly constipated. But, "O Goldman," and also "O Sachs," know that the government has your backs, we'll restore your riches with an extra tax as you lobby to be sure regulations stay lax.

Time for Tax Hikes US economic growth has been strongest when our taxes have been high. During World War II, then under Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy, our upper marginal tax rates were between 88-92%. Read those numbers again. They are astonishingly high. Those were our strongest growth years.

Crash Course In Economics watching the economic news is like being in a car that is sliding on ice, where time seems to slow down as you watch the crash happen-- time slowed while we slid forward and sideways, heading onto the shoulder, then past it "-. it seemed as if we had all the time in the world, yet there was nothing we could do to get off the ice, alter the trajectory, slow down "- nothing "- until we crashed.
