  • The concept of the commons was well understood and accepted by the founders. As was the concept of the common good. Which you will find references to in the US Constitution. You're going to get what you're asking for. I think it's inevitable. The bankers that run the US economic policy are the same oens that run Argentina's. They are takign the same steps here that they did there...

  • Now it's fashionable to bribe politicians for subsidies. All of our major corporations and even most of the ME corporations are now on some from Welfare Relief. We have to cut domestic spending and jobs, because the we have to find ways to keep up exponentially growth in our $trillion+ Middle East Welfare War Subsidies. It's ironic that we've hired hundreds of Muslim Corporations...

  • Well, in New Orleans we blamed the people who died in their homes. Human nature being what it is, a similar scapegoating may occur for Brisbane.

  • That's pretty much how it has to work Don. All of the currencies need to print money at similar rates to avoid a severe dislocation. If even one significant country gets out of sync for even a quarter or two, it could send massive reverberating shock waves throughout the financial system. Other countries have gotten our of the Treasury buying business and now the FED has to print...

  • I love the comments. Those enviro-whackos sure are powerful, if they can stop Exxon from drilling for profit. they can probably fly like superman, walk unscathed through a nuclear explosion and kill corporate execs halfway around the world, with nothing but the power of a careless thought. How can I become such a super god? We're post peak, and the public still doesn't know it. And...

  • You touched on something that I think is at the heart of this. If our corporations present three different varieties of dog turds to vote for as our favorite, and the vote is tallied and it turns out that the people wanted the German Shepherd turd... Does this mean that people actually like the German Shepherd turd? Or was it simply the best choice out a group of bad choices? Would...

  • You do know that the CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) was passed in 1977, right? It survived Carter, Reagan, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, and then blew up with a Republican President at the helm? Would you like to blame the Pinto's poor reputation on the Model A?

  • I quit listening to Sean Hannity some time ago. And though it's fun for some people to say that the black people caused the meltdown, the fact is, CERA was really a tool for rich white folks to snap up real estate in poor neighborhoods, to turn around the pattern of urban blight. Now in spite of the heavily racist argument you've made, CERA loans have a lower default rate than the...

  • "All fingers for this imbalance point to the US consumer." And those bumbling bankers that the consumer cheated are still buying vacation homes and new yachts, with the giant profits that only really stupid people can earn. Or, perhaps there's more to this story than millions of super genius consumers ripping off the retarded slug brain bankers? Consider: 1. The banking industry...
