Washington : DC : USA | Mar 03, 2013 at 6:11 AM PST By Herbert Dyer, Jr. Reporters listen to U.S. President Barack Obama speak about the sequester after he met with congressional leaders at the White House in Washington As is being widely reported, President Barack Obama signed an order Friday night authorizing the reduction of $85 billion from federal accounts.

If you would like to follow the sequester and any hearings related to it, watch C-Span. There was a hearing on the sequester and government jobs on this subject yesterday on C-Span, the main channel. This is more far and wide than people actually realize. And I consider this a direct effect of the smaller federal gov't line be the Neo-Cons (Neo-Confederates) via the Tea Party and Ultra conservative Republicans. Maybe once people start losing some of these benefits paid for by their tax...

One of the funniest things about economics is a video I saw of Lester Thurow around 1999. He was an economist at MIT. He said the economy was in a state that he did not understand. So if he said that in 1999, why does anybody think they know what is going on now? They are talking bullsh!t and they don't know what will affect what. What are smartphones and the Internet doing to the economy. Nobody knows. They didn't exist in 1999. John Maynard Keynes didn't know anything about the effects of...

Amen to that, Xum!! One of the most SHOCKING things about the economic crash in 2008 that left me .... is that the majority of the so-called "experts" .... and NONE of the housing/financial corporations themselves that actually CAUSED the problem even saw it coming!! While they (or at least any other...

If a person (or body of work represented by an institution) gets something wrong, its understandable to question them and why they got it wrong or why they should be trusted with their data now. What doesn't make sense is to then claim that everybody is wrong because they (from that institution)...
