“People wish to be settled, but only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. Welcome back, my friend, to a new day. Each day offers a new chance, a rebirth. But do we take it? As chance would have it, last week I found myself on […]

Knowing what has happened in our economy over the last five years it’s hard to imagine how anyone has not only survived but profited from it. But long time readers know that’s exactly what’s happened to a small fraction of the people in our country. We may have less rich people now than we did […]

You go to work diligently every day, put in your eight hours, come home and have just enough time to eat and sit in front of the boob tube for a few hours before you have to go to bed and wake up to do it all over again. Do you ever wish you could […]

The Next Four Days Will Decide Our Fragile Economy’s Fate

Bankrupt

The Government is hell bent on pushing us back into a recession! As I write this we are on week two of the government shutdown. For 14 days neither the Obama administration nor members of the Republican Party felt any kind of rush to end the funding dispute. I awoke today to hear for the […]

Your Retirement Savings Won’t Be Enough…No Matter How Much You’ve Saved

Healthcare costs

Last week I told you about how this so called economic recovery we are in has been limited to the super wealthy. They are the only economic class that has fully recouped their losses sustained in the 2009 recession. Middle class Americans have actually been left worse off than they were before the recession hit […]

Are Bad Times Really a Blessing?

half full or half empty?

This week I’m going to talk about something different… something that will allow you to look at the negative in a completely different light. Hey, it wasn’t me who burned the economy by allowing banks to leverage their assets by 30:1, I’m just the spectator trying to make my way through the aftermath. Politicians and […]

By Jim Sheridan. “People wish to be settled, but only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. “People talk about my getting shot like it represented something special.

One Less Evil in the World Today

Fed View One

A few issues back I wrote to you about “chaos-stan”, referring to the area of the world that is in turmoil today, and the area that we should be paying particularly close attention to. My number one concern was Pakistan, a nuclear nation that is not friendly to the US and its interests. It should […]

The Liquidity Trap Unfolds

Fed View One

The Dow’s over 12,000 again as I write this. Bad news seems to have a very temporary effect on this juggernaut that’s been largely aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve’s cheap money policy. How much longer can THEY keep it going? Well, in theory they can keep it up forever. The Fed’s goal is […]

While The West Sleeps

Stock market data with uptrend vector

The economy might finally be pulling out of the doldrums in the US, but it has a long way to go before it recovers. Much of the gains we have seen in GDP and the gains we will see in the months ahead are the result of government stimuli. While the talking heads in Washington […]

Prepare for Gridlock…or Worse

Casting vote

Tomorrow night the polls will close. There will likely be a change in the leadership of the House of Representatives and maybe the Senate. If change does occur in just the House, then the order of the day will be gridlock. Up until now the Dems have been able to push their agenda through Congress […]

Disillusioned, Disenchanted…a Message from Omaha

American cemetery at Omaha Beach, Normany France

Omaha Beach that is. I just returned from a trip to France. On the flight over I sat next to a veteran of the Omaha Beach War. He was stationed in Germany at the time. We got to talking and he laid bare his views about where he though the US was headed. It’s a […]

Gaming the System

House Default

The other day I took a cab ride to the airport. I was in a great mood before I got in the taxi! I always strike up a conversation with the driver – it’s nice to get the perspective of other people in my travels. He was pleasant enough and talkative too. I quickly steered […]

Put Down That Brand

Grocery shopping

Did your nose crinkle a bit in disgust when you read the title of this article? Mine did but I think that’s a family trait I inherited from my Godmother.  Thanks Aunt Jeanie. Moving on… But seriously the thought of store brand, generic foods from the grocery store does not make anyone lick their lips […]

Rally? What Rally?

The last quarter ended with a whimper. Stock indices had their worst quarter in four years and the worst August since 2001. Despite the rally last week where we saw the indices tack on 2.5% in one day, it’s been a miserable year for stocks. Gold on the other hand is approaching news lifetime highs […]

Can You Handle the Truth?

Rumor has it that the economy is slowing down. It must be just a rumor since the market went on a tear the week before last. In these very pages I wrote that a recovery is not possible without two things: a healthy job market and a healthy housing market. There is another leg – […]

Rope a Dope

Boxing Gloves

Muhammad Ali made the rope-a-dope famous in his fight against George Foreman. It worked like this: Ali, knowing he was outmatched in the strength department by Foreman would lay back on the ropes, letting Foreman pummel him with punches. Each time Foreman threw a punch, Ali blocked and Foreman lost some strength. By the later […]
