The Harsh Reality of Democracy

America is accelerating downhill from is position of prominence in the world, India and China are both on the ascent, but still our politicians are whoring themselves to the power of the masses for a few extra votes.  The glory of democracy is that everyman has a vote, the harsh reality is that most who do vote are selfish jackasses who will gladly sell long term economic growth for a buck today.

Band Aid Economics

If you are not a subscriber, I encourage you to go out and purchase this weeks business weeks. Go ahead I will wait....

This historic issue chronicles the last gasps of the capitalist aspects of our society in the article "Forget Adam Smith... Whatever works". After watching with envious eyes the bailout of the financial markets, the big three automakers are coming to DC looking for a handout.
