Marc Faber Would "Squeeze The System Like A Lemon" If He Were In Charge
Promising good governance guarantees a losing campaign for public office. - The problem in representative democracy is that every instance of waste, graft, fraud and monopolistic racket is somebody's fat paycheck or government contract.
Nobody wins elections promising to trim waste/fraud/monopolies and simplify the churn of complex regulations because any such good governance threatens somebody's fat paycheck/contract...The winning candidate promises not good governance for the benefit of all but more swag for enough voters to win the election.
Capitalism shares a similar irony: the relentless pursuit of narrow self-interest (personal profit) drives the stripmining of the seas for high-value fish, killing vast numbers of "worthless" sea life in the process. When the ocean ecosystem has been destroyed, the theory is that a substitute will be found, such as farm fishing...But farm fishing does not replace the lost ecosystem

Message from the DemocRAT/GOPher duopoly:
The thing to remember is that the economy as a whole will be paying for these auto sales for six or seven years.
And now, without further ado, deep thoughts with Steve Forbes:
Influential financial publisher and former presidential candidate Steve Forbes is out with a new warning that the U.S. faces an economic catastrophe due to the Federal Reserve's loose dollar policy, and returning to a strict “gold standard” is the only way to avoid disaster.

Speaking of over-capacity, it is sort of amusing (sort of disgusting) that these new sales are linked and back'd by loans that are connected to complacent people that are more than willing to enjoy the moment and sigh with great relief that the economy is kicking into full gear.

I think the combined message is more likely that humanity does not posses the ability to even comprehend a loving, creative force that created infinity, no less grasp at a rudimentary understanding.

The images from the Rose Garden of a smiling president placing his arms supportively around Robert and Jani Bergdahl, whose son Bowe was freed in return for the release of five Taliban leaders in Guantanamo Bay, were broadcast around the world. But past comments by Mr. Bergdahl condemning US foreign policy – not to mention his bushy Islamic-looking beard, his command of Pashtu and Arabic and his use of an Islamic greeting while standing next to Mr. Obama – have now been seized on by conservative critics of the president.

Feds spent $700,000 on a Climate Change Musical
And while making electricity creates 40 percent of the greenhouse gases in the U.S., cutting it as Obama proposes will not come close to meeting the global reduction scientists say is necessary to reverse warming (an act that will actually cap GDP, not carbon). For one thing, the amount of the U.S. cuts would be replaced more than three times over by projected increases in China alone.

Steen Jakobsen: Expect A 30% Stock Market Correction in 2014 -- Central banks have largely failed in their misguided attempts to boost growth via trickle-down programs.
I think it’s interesting in a world where we have metadata, big data, we have quantitative analysis, we have PhDs coming out of our ears, but no one really just looks in simple terms and creates a simple sort of method to look at the economy.
I hope Bill & Seb didn't take the nite off, they've got some work to do!
He believes that the correction will be a clearing event not just for overly-elevated prices, but also will serve as a wake-up call about the net energy situation that will lead to better policy decisions.

Worse, you may have to go back to primitive methods like statistical regression or even reasoning by analogy. Where would we be today if economics had stayed in those dark ages?
Today the comrades at the Department of Propaganda had to adjust their lies - The truth was too horrible, hence the quickly revised number, but that was too big of a lie so they had to go back and make it a more believable lie - They have had 3 different numbers in just about that many hours today, why would anyone trust their numbers at all?

Once we turn to money production in interventionist regimes, which have prevailed in the West for the better part of the past 150 years (i.e. How Inflation Helps Keep the Rich Up and the Poor Down). Here we need to mention in particular two institutional forms of monetary interventionism: (fraudulent) fractional reserve banking and fiat money. The common characteristic of both these institutions is that they violate the principle of free association. They enable the producers of paper money and of money titles to expand their production through the violation of other people’s property rights.
