NFL Players Have Seemingly Forgotten That Injustice Is a Relative Concept

The number is thankfully in decline, but as of 2010 over 2 billion of the world’s inhabitants had never flipped on a light switch. In the U.S. we understandably hurt for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Ricans who may go without electricity for months, and our compassion is magnified by the happy truth that most of us have never lived without it ourselves.

Ignore The Endless Talk Of Doom, Budget Deficits Really Don't Matter

U.S. federal debt added up to $908 billion in 1980, but today, nearly 40 years later, the number comes in around $20 trillion. That the amount owed by U.S. taxpayers has soared over twenty-fold would, in a static world, correlate with a huge increase in borrowing costs for the U.S. Treasury.

Federal Flood Insurance Did Not Magnify Harvey and Irma

Back in 2008, and in the aftermath of the troubles within the financial sector, a popular theme emerged about banks “privatizing profits while socializing risk.” To believe their critics then and now, banks swing for the proverbial fences with an eye on big bonuses, but if their careless ways lead to insolvency, their errors are cushioned by taxpayer bailouts. It was and is a neat theory, but not a very realistic one.

The Crucial Lesson for Republicans Inside Amazon's Headquarters Search

In 2006 Warren Buffett invested $4.5 billion in Iscar, an Israel-based machine-tools maker. Notable is that Iscar was within easy distance of the enemy rockets that exist as a constant threat to the small country, its businesses, and most important of all, its people. For that reason, the investment puzzled some of Buffett’s admiring watchers.

USA Today's Low Innuendo About Donald Trump and His Golf Courses

When Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy in June of 2015, no one (including yours truly) gave him anything resembling even an outside shot. Trump and his candidacy were a laugh line. The previous assertion is not a political statement as much as it’s fact.

India, and the Unsung Cruelty of Life Without Massive Inequality

According to the New York Times, 564 million Indian citizens don’t have toilets, indoor or outdoor. You read that right. Roughly half of India’s population goes without what Americans of all economic stripes take for granted, and that is standard (indoors) in any American apartment or house.

When They Promise To Bring Back Manufacturing Jobs, They're Promising Stagnation

The British fought three wars in Afghanistan over an 80-year period. They finally left this “graveyard for empires” in 1919, only to eventually be replaced by the Soviet Union in the late 70s, and the U.S. in the aftermath of 9/11.

The Path to Economic Growth Is An Absence of Economists

The great investor and writer Andy Kessler frequently points out that the failure rate among Silicon Valley start-ups is 90 percent. Every member of the economics profession would be wise to memorize the previous figure, and repeat it daily. If so, economists might come closer to understanding why they’re mystified by what they deem slow economic growth. And mystified they are. So much so that they’ve apparently given up.

Amazon's Genius Mocks the Fed and Its 2% Inflation Target

Amazon’s purchase of high-end grocery retailer Whole Foods was approved last week. That the federal government had any role at all in the combination of two private companies is on its own an offense to common sense. Government barriers erected to mergers trample on property rights, restrain economic progress for crucial information about the good or bad of tie-ups needlessly reaching markets late, plus readers must consider the unseen: the economic activity not taking place thanks to the forced duplication of effort that is an effect of antitrust.

The Genius Of Nothing: The Unsung Economic Lesson Of Donald Trump's Presidency

Modern stock-market commentary is always amusing. Maybe it’s the desire among writers to secure clicks in the age of the internet, but so much of the media chatter about markets focuses on the coming “boom,” “crash,” or the always “eerie” similarities to 1929, 1987, or 2008. That it does is a sign of how worthless most equity commentary is.
