Re: How little the MSM knows about economics

So let me help them and those in this forum who have been miseducated by the MSM. Tax cuts for companies result in higher after-tax profits. Higher profits means more investments both from new companies entering the market and expansion from existing companies. More investments mean greater demand ...

Re: How little the MSM knows about economics

More investments mean greater demand for workers. That surely depends on what they invest in. If it's automation then it usually means fewer workers are employed. No, that is not true. Automation will in the long run also raise wages. You should not be like the Luddites who feared automation. They ...

Re: Some comments on Shep Smith vs Sean Hannity

Milo, They don't contradict each other on facts; only the opinion derived is different. Here are my observations: 1)Hannity was careful to say that the State Dept partly approved the deal. But Hannity did not mention the other agencies who approved. Smith did and greatly diminished State's responsi...

How little the MSM knows about economics

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mfEJ-j2pNo&feature=youtu.be The MSM, which mostly (except for Fox) supports the Democratic Party, had been panning the Trump Tax reforms with all the usual Democratic talking abouts. You know, the tax cuts favor the rich and corporations; middle class will be screwe...

Re: Sweden gets the war jitters.

You conveniently forget that the USSR abstained from integrating Finland in its territory, although Finland had been part of the Russian Empire. Its not that Russia did not try. Russo-Finnish War 1939 - 1940. In case you forgot, the USSR won that war, acquired some territory but preserved Finland's...

Re: Golden era for Malaysia-Singapore ties

Could it be that it has something to do with the 1MDB money that Najib stole and ended up in his private Singapore bank account? Maybe Najib needs LHL to hush things up and not implicate him. In exchange, he plays lovey-dovey with Singapore. This is just my speculation. I don't know. Truly, he is th...

Re: Sweden gets the war jitters.

Of course Russia is a threat to Sweden. It has nukes, a larger military than Sweden and is led by a thug, Putin. The same can be said about the US, except that the thug is called Trump... No, the Europeans see the US as a protector. When Trump threatened to pull out of NATO, they were alarmed. Now ...
