In my last article, I argued that Socialism is “The Price Capitalism Pays When Greed Goes Unrestrained.” Unrestrained and highly rewarded greed in the US is fueling a revolution by conservatives and liberals with liberals stampeding toward Socialism as their answer under the auspices of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. That fire […]

The Trump Triumph Challenges Economic Predictions for 2017

Posted February 20, 2017 By David Haggith
Trump's corporate tax cut is a gift to himself like his corporate jet.

The triumph of Donald Trump as the champion of a revolution against the status quo assures huge economic changes in the coming year, which I’ll list below. His victory struck a shocking upset to the globalists who have steered the last sixty or more years of world history, as I reported in an earlier story about George Soros mourning […]

It’s a good question to ask on the day after Christmas, when we have all used our credit cards to buy gifts for others. In spite of this seasonal gift buying, I think there has never been a more selfish generation. (Regular readers of this blog are excepted because you wouldn’t be reading this contrarian blog if you were […]

Posted September 20, 2015 By David Haggith
tax burden of the beleaguered peasants give rise to socialist revolution

It should be coming clear that economic recovery has evaded us. If you’re not seeing that just yet, your illusion of recovery will dissolve quickly this fall, just as I’ve said it would. Nothing the Federal Reserve has done has created recovery because it was never possible that such simplistic stimulus — made to appear […]

An Economic Vision for Real, Sustainable Recovery

Posted December 24, 2014 By David Haggith

My economic vision for a sustainable economic recovery is easy to understand, easy to believe in and almost impossible to enact politically. I’ve laid it out in bullet points throughout the article below:   Banks that failed would be allowed to fail, so the bad stuff dies and decays back into the fetid earth, and the evil and greedy are […]

How can Republicans still believe a capital gains tax increase will hurt investment and jobs when the world’s most successful, multi-billionaire, investment advisor begs to differ? Republicans may stand on the right side of the aisle, but they certainly do not stand on the right side of the argument when it comes to ending the […]

Economists Just Don’t Get The Great Recession

Posted August 8, 2012 By David Haggith

The Business Editor of The Daily Telegraph must be dining on the food of the gods to be so high about recovery from the Great Recession, but he’s also eating with his feet and making quite a mess in his analysis, which speaks against any evolutionary development in his thirty years. According to The Telegraph, […]

Anyone can criticize while having no better ideas.  In fact, I would argue that, if you cannot put forward reasonable alternatives, you might not be qualified to criticize those who are, at least, trying something. In that spirit, I want to scope out a new economic recovery program vastly different from the economic plan the U.S. adopted […]

The following linked article presents a radically non-radical idea that would change government by reforming the power balance of congress and reducing the influence of money over individual members of congress. It is non-radical because it is primarily a conservative return to the ratio of representatives-to-citizens envisioned in the constitution. It is radical because it would create […]

Ideas for Change

Posted December 7, 2011 By David Haggith

Let’s have real ideas for change for a change! U.S. President Barak Obama campaigned on the basis of making political change, but that didn’t happen. Now he’s retreading that campaign, but he still doesn’t seem to have any ideas of his own that look anything like real and significant change. I thought he could use […]
