Science blasphemed when tries to eliminate scarcity in economy.
A mental disease has swept the planet: banalization. Everyone is hypnotized by production and comfort — sewage system, elevator, bathroom, washing machine. This state of affairs, which arose out of a struggle against poverty, overshoots its ultimate goal — the liberation of humanity from material cares — and becomes an obsessive image hanging over the...
In a society in which nearly everybody is dominated by somebody else’s mind or by a disembodied mind, it becomes increasingly difficult to learn the truth about the activities of governments and corporations, about the quality or value of products, or about the health of one’s own place and economy.In such a society, also, our...
Oil prices have certainly become a threat for the world economy.
So the American economy needs the world, and the world needs the American economy.
The Illinois housing market continues to be a solid driver of the state’s economy and, in 2006, REALTORS(r) anticipate strong demand for homeownership and favorable price appreciation. Home sales in Illinois tend to follow a seasonal trend with the strongest months being April through September, so it’s no surprise that fourth-quarter activity over the holiday...
None of it made any difference. The hollow feeling refused to go away. The next days were very hard. I found myself in the grip of a crippling ennui. I was back at square one, but I couldn’t bring myself to resume my job hunt; it was all I could do to drag myself from...
The housing market only has a smaller impact to any slowdown in the economy.
Technology fuels economy, unfortunately in today’s world it’s the fuel that drags economy
It’s important to stress that we do have some very good things going on in this economy, which Greenspan reiterated yesterday. What we should be thinking about is that this is a move that’s designed to be a little bit preemptive to make sure that this rapid growth does not start resulting in higher inflation.
This should be an exciting and informative presentation by our state attorney general because as our economy in California has resumed a very rapid growth rate many corporate boards of directors are struggling with pressures to meet new challenges from both a highly competitive global environment and more restrictive legal oversight.
That fact alone could act as a stabilizing force for the market this week. The U.S. consumer has been the linchpin of this economy. So this number doesn’t bode well, especially as we enter the Christmas shopping season and retailers are already suffering because of the West Coast ports dispute .
Public servants say, always with the best of intentions, “What greater service we could render if only we had a little more money and a little more power.” But the truth is that outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector.
We’ve gone from a psychology a month and a half ago that the economy is growing too quickly, and the Fed is going to have to raise rates, to we’re going to go towards a recession because the economy’s slowing too quickly. That’s like turning around the JFK on the Hudson: it doesn’t work that...
The economy is clearly cooling or downshifting somewhat,
The economy and the job market are not out of the woods yet,

We need a reset in the way the economy grows around the world.

When we find new markets for our harvest, we ensure the security of our state’s economy,
