The FED and Rate Increases

The word is by November, if i can see reasonably sustained wage appreciation over the next few months that the offset would be any wage increase would naturally go to savings.

The 2016 GOP field broad as it is head strong

Is there some one candidate that can offer America a fresh start. There is a noticeable difference in the Clinton fever now as compared to when he first ran . The other question is there a candidate that can coalesce members of their party to turn out in droves on election day. That is something Clinton is good at, that is networking and that goes for in and outside of his party. The final question, is there someone who can do that better, and I think the GOP has two: Jeb Bush and Chris Christie. I mean Christie does have a lot of Democratic support, and in keeping with MSNbc strategist, he may be laying  back waiting for the right opportunity to strike. The guy is affable. Completely benign to reproach in terms of his conservative values including his stance on the need for Gun Control. That means if you have gun control laws, then you are permitted to have guns. That's why we need gun control laws.  Like it or not every thing that we posses is regulated.

Can Government Erase the Print Button

I was filing and I asked my self how is it that this tandem technology introspect really quantitatively exist. We have paper and online storage in a simultaneous generational vortex that will have to end sooner or later. It's the print button. Once people stop coding it and either the rest of society catches up and starts asking the same of it's government, or government leads the way by offering it as a capital improvement. You would think from a technological perspective we would be transferring from CD storage to Cloud, but we are still a paper generation. How is this? And we only end up shredding it anyway.

Weekly Unemployment Claims Apr 16, 2015

In the week ending April 11, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 294,000, an increase of 12,000 from the previous week's revised level. The previous week's level was revised up by 1,000 from 281,000 to 282,000. The 4-week moving average was 282,750, an increase of 250 from the previous week's revised average. The previous week's average was revised up by 250 from 282,250 to 282,500.

The strength of the recovery has had a noticeable lag by the reports of the recent indicators. Maybe it's Obama care, maybe its the European financial anemia limiting American investment agendas. While the FED tinkers with the notion of raising rates to foster greater return on people's propensity to save, some free market economies are still dangling negative interest rates plans in front of bankers. Holding rates artificially low for extremely long periods will create a invariably negative bubble. The explosion of that bubble will have unprecedented effects.

Fiscal stimulus works much better and a whole lot faster than monetary policy. The free flow of cash creates liquidity that is net of administrative fees and slowing effects of the regulatory environment. After pouring $1.7 trillion into the US economy, the anticipated robust growth is effectuating itself as a benign sliver of economic hope. Bluntly, the investment regime that created the great economic expansion of the first half of the last decade was driven by income tax autonomy. Going back to that regime will recreate similar effects across the board.

Then come the endorsements

The GOP field have the DNC pinned down. As far as popularity contests they bring out more groups in more areas at once. Three announcements for the presidency and the big names like Chris Christie and Jeb Bush are yet to come. I can see the DNC with a candle signed we have Clinton.

Famous Quote

I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will.
