Muckraker of the Financial System

I have published on two other prominent financial websites, Seekingalpha.com (as Gary A) and at Businessinsider.com. I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

E Trump Versus Powell: Who Is Right About Immigration?
Immigration is deeply related to Free Trade in judging the openness of a society. On that subject, Powell is very right and Trump is very wrong. Wage growth is still sub par, and the economy is hardly booming in a classic sense.

Too bad Trump revenge clouds every single issue he promotes. He is more a freak than a president. We knew he was odd, but he is way worse than just odd. He is a danger to himself and others.

The Economic Consequences Of Debt

The only problem I have with this article is the idea that social programs are squandered money, and the idea that crushing the major banks in the Great Recession would not have been a problem for the economy. This is Libertarianism run amok. My parents lived through the Great Depression and they viewed FDR as a hero. Most people did. It was Hoover who was the villain.

Yet Another Trillion-Dollar Unfunded Liability, California Wildfires Edition

Of course, Bill. Fires are also terrifying. I have been on the edge of two major fires. My point is that the financial cost of hurricanes is greater. Trump was saying fires could be managed. Well, where is the wall in front of Miami to stop hurricanes? Trump talks about prevention. If he wants walls, build them for hurricanes.

At least the author acknowledges that California fires are nothing compared to a hurricane like Katrina and multiple hurricanes.

Smartphone companies are mostly lying, greedy, cheating enterprises. They are dreadful and selfish. They do not care about their customers. They make the airlines look humane. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, the Democrats could work on getting some territorial support away from urban centers by dismantling the unpopular gun control efforts that those rural areas hate. That seems like a no brainer since the Democrats are not going to really do gun control anyway.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that. http://www.examplesofglobalization.com
