Quoth the Keynesians "Nevermore"

         Many can recall the short story The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe, in which Prince Prospero attempts to avoid the plague that is ravaging the country side by barricading himself and a number of his closest friends in his abbey.  However, despite Prince Prospero’s best efforts he and his friends all fall victim to the plague.

Captain Ireland

          On Monday May 16th, the Federal government reached the debt limit, and now the Congress is struggling to reach a decision on whether to raise the debt ceiling or to start making substantial cuts.  This means cutting spending across the board, leaving no stone unturned in the quest of reducing spending, especially when these cuts have been granted by the Whitehouse.  In March, President Obama signed into law a resolution that included a $17 million cut from the International

Leviathan vs. Bunny

          Thomas Hobbes, a seventeenth century political philosopher, advocated in his famous work Leviathan that the fundamental role of government is to protect its citizens.  A fine goal to be certain but where does one draw the line for what is acceptable protection and what is unnecessary?  It has become more and more evident that the current systems in place unnecessarily restrict our liberties more than offer us any real protection.  The United States Department of Agriculture is just one example of one of those unnecessary

Keynesians' Recipe for Disaster

          There is an old saying, “too many cooks spoil the broth.”  That very well could be true but an even truer statement is that too many Keynesians ruins the currency.  Once again Peter Diamond is expected to be considered to fill a vacate spot on the Federal Reserve Board.  Peter Diamond
