Bitcoin: Gold 2.0

The bitcoin cyber-economy composed of merchants, users, service providers, and start-up enterprises has flourished for the past three years. The value of Bitcoins has appreciated by 6,000%.

China Moon Landing Seen as Military Threat

China’s December 15th soft-landing of an unmanned spacecraft on the moon was celebrated by the Xinhua news agency as, “The dream for lunar exploration once again lights up the China Dream”.

China’s provocative moves are creating a muscular arms race in Asia. Dec 16, 2013 2:59 AM PT

Private Sector Stimulates Job Growth

The main-stream media were shocked today when U.S. job growth continued at a very strong pace in November, despite the October government shutdown that ended on October 17th. Employers added 203,000 jobs and the reported unemployment rate fell from 7.3% to 7%, its lowest level since November 2008. Economists had predicted a rise of only 180,000 jobs and a slight percentage decline to 7.2%. Despite government shut-downs, deficit spending and Obamacare taxes; the American manufacturing and energy sectors are providing the real type of economic stimulus that generates job growth.

Emerging Markets in Another Death-Spiral

With the U.S. stock market flat from 2000 to 2007, emerging-markets were all the rage for investors, led by the China stock exchange’s 330% rise. But when the Great Recession hit, U.S. stocks fell 50% versus the highly speculative emerging-markets crash led by the Chinese market’s death-spiral that sent prices down 72% in eighteen months. Motivated by greed and undeterred by pain, Wall Street brokers and money managers have poured $400 billion of their customer’s cash into these treacherous markets since the crash. But with little investment return and Fitch Ratings recently warning of rising credit risk, the emerging market may be in for another death-spiral. Nov 13, 2013 8:09 AM PT

Pay 41% More and Get Less from Obamacare

Obamacare’s taxpayer-funded subsidies will primarily benefit those approaching retirement, despite substantially higher average net worth for that demographic compared to the young. But the real winners under Obamacare are huge insurance companies and HMOs whose stock prices have gone up twice as fast as the market, since Obamacare kills competition and creates monopolistic profits.

Democrats Need an Election Bailout

With Congressional budget talks heating up, the left wing of the Democrat Party is already bellowing for more government economic stimulus.

Washington Political Press Has Got Obama's Back
