Ed Butowsky: Calculating The True Cost Of Living

It's much higher than we're told/sold.   Over the past decade, we've been told that inflation has been tame -- actually below the target the Federal Reserve would like to see. But if that's true, then why does the average household find it harder and harder to get by? The ugly reality is that the true annual cost of living is far outpacing the       ... MORE

Lu Wang: 2015 - The Year Nothing Worked

Stocks, bonds, cash go nowhere.     Worst year for asset allocation funds since 1937. The idea behind asset allocation is simple: when one market struggles, it’s OK because an investor can jump into another that is thriving. Not so in 2015. In fact, if you judge the past year by which U.S. investment class generated the largest return, a case can be    ... MORE

Stephen Moore: America's $12 Trillion House of Cards

A precarious situation indeed.       What is the price tag for the audacious Obamanomics experiment?

That's the sum of the $8.3 trillion added to the national   ... MORE

John Crudele: Why The Federal Reserve Should Be Audited

Because ignorance is not bliss.  It is time for a comprehensive audit of Janet Yellen ’s Federal Reserve — and not just for the reasons presidential candidate Rand Paul and others have given.

Overlords favor supervised spending.    In April it was announced that Greece was imposing a surcharge for all cash withdrawals from bank accounts to deter citizens from clearing out their accounts.
