Joplin was struck by an EF5 tornado last May. Afterwards, community members freely and voluntarily worked together to help rebuild the town. Daniel J. Smith, economics professor at Troy University, studied the rebuilding of Joplin, Missouri in the months following the tornado. Watch as Professor Smith discusses how economic freedom can help areas recover from natural disasters. "I think one of the key factors in the recovery process in Joplin, from the tornado, is that the government officials allowed the community to start rebuilding itself. I think Joplin is a great example of the power of people—free people—coming together and both using profit motive, in the businesses, using religious reasons for faith-based organizations, and just concern for your fellow man, in the community-based organizations, to rebuild a disaster stricken community." -- Daniel J.

President Obama in his remarks at Osawatomie High School in Osawatomie, Kansas said, this is not just another political debate. This is the defining issue of our time. This is a make-or-break moment for the middle class, and for all those who are fighting to get into the middle class. Because what's at stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, secure their retirement.
The new job numbers are out for the month of November. The Labor Department announced that unemployment is declining and was 8.6 percent for last month. Roughly 120 thousand private jobs were created in the month of November, but critics say retail and hospitality jobs aren't the type of jobs America needs. Others say that this doesn't make up for the new people joining the workforce. Gerald Celente, publisher of The Trends Journal, sounds off on the issue. Follow Liz on Twitter at twitter.com

This doesn't mean that it will happen, but I will be keeping my eyes open for it. I am also aware that at any time a stock market crash may happen and that it is time to be ready for it. The VIX index which tracks fear is very low and this is an indication that a crash will not happen soon however. CNBC mentions that it is time to get out of the stock market and that is a tell in my opinion that we may have a shorterm reversal. Patriot Radio is talking about a long delay in this collapse which is also a tell for a shorterm bottom. The banks being nationalized or the rumors that they will be, have had the financials sell off very hard. This could mean banks like Citigroup and Bank of America common stock could be worth 0.00. I am not sure on this and I guess we will find out in the next few months when the banks do get nationalized. Rick Santelli.

It has not seen this level since March/08 and eleven months later it is back to its level. It will most likely have a difficult time breaking the resistance of 1014 high that we had at this moment. It may even fall over 10-15% in the next little while if the bottom hits. This of course is something that could be very good for gold as this could create an inverted head and shoulders pattern which would increase the price of gold to over 1,600 per oz. Also, the price of the DOW in gold is at 7.4oz. The DOW was 10 oz of gold at the end of the year and was around 43oz of gold almost a decade ago. It has twice been even with the DOW and Peter Schiff's predictions on this has been spot on so far. He has done a great job with this.

The excessive federal spending spree MUST STOP ! --------------------- [FEB 2009] American Issues Projects new ad highlights the failure of the pork-laden stimulus bill to stimulate the economy. Washington, DC February 20, 2009 American Issues Project launched a major television advertising campaign today spotlighting the excessive spending and pet projects within the far-reaching stimulus legislation, which the Congressional Budget Office has said will harm the American economy in the long term. The ad will begin running today on FOX News, CNN, CNN Headline News, CNBC and FOX Business Network. Washington is, once again, out of touch with the American people, said Ed Martin, the organizations president. Congress has used the anxiety of the American people as a vehicle for appeasing special interest groups and financing their pork projects back home. This type of spending has no place within emergency legislation intended to jump-start the economy. The ad also showcases examples of the billions spent on pork projects—including golf carts, fish hatcheries and remodeled federal offices—and targets liberal senator Charles Schumer for his claim on the Senate floor that the American people really dont care about porky amendments. American Issues Projects ad examines assertions that the funding in the stimulus package will not help the economy, neither this year nor in the long term, according to economists and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. With this so-called stimulus bill, its the government that will grow, not the economy. The spending circus in Washington must stop before our politicians amass generational debt even further out of our control, said American Issues Project President Ed Martin. The ad buy of nearly one million dollars starts airing Friday and urges concerned citizens to text ENOUGH to 97180 if they want to join the organization. An electronic version of the ad, plus full documentation for all statements made, is available at American Issues Projects website: http://www.americanissuesproject.org About American Issues Project American Issues Project is a 501(c)4 organization representing a coalition of conservative activists committed to raising important issues that deserve deeper examination given their impact on policy and politics.

Bill Clinton slams GOP economic record By David Edwards CNNs John Robert talked with Bill Clinton about President Obamas economic policy. Clinton said that Obama is doing exactly what he would do in the same situation. Clinton took shots at the GOP for attacking Obamas bipartisan efforts. He has reached across and it takes two to tango. I find it amazing that the Republicans who doubled the debt of the country in eight years and produced no new jobs doing it, gave us an economic record that was totally at any bereft of any productive results are now criticizing him for spending money, he said.

You can't print money based on nothing, and you can't spend your way out of this problem, you must produce your way out, were two excellent points made by Glenn Becks guest; he gets it. Too bad out President, Mr. Obama doesn't get it. He also said: The only thing you have in this life is your dignity, and the only thing you leave behind are your words. Of course you leave behind a lot of junk, people who love or hate you, and maybe some videos on Youtube, but his point was that when you are gone, people will only know what you stood for by looking at your work; what you did and said. So you had better mean what you say, and say what you mean. Here's a rookie economic theory that I've had for quite a few years, and it involves China. For the last 20 plus years we have been buying more and more cheap products from China, which caused us to lose high paying jobs. People would then get lower paying jobs, but with the lower cost of goods because of the cheap imports, and with the government supplementing their income with various government programs, they did OK. Part two: The government has been running massive deficits, while at the same time the FED has been pumping massive amounts of money into the economy. One would think that this would cause a lot of inflation. I think the reason that it has not, is because of the cheap imports; they have kept downward pressure on prices. But I think we have reached a saturation point were we have replaced almost everything that used to be manufactured here, with cheap imports, therefore prices will not continue to fall. What will keep inflation down now? And now with all of this money that's being pumped into the economy, I believe that real inflation, and quite possibly hyperinflation, is on the way. Well that's my little theory, its not very well explained, because on top of not being an economist, I'm also not a writer. jbranstetter04 Surviving the Coming Economic Collapse The coming economic collapse I speak of is a meltdown in the value of the USD. This is going to be caused by hyperinflation. Hyperinflation is when the money creator, the Federal Reserve in this case, prints money nonstop and technically goes over 100% inflation rate. This means that at the end of the year, your money will only buy half of what it did at the beginning. It quickly spirals out of control as the government prints more and more and more to cover its obligations which get harder and harder to do because the money gets worth less and more worth less until it is worthless (note the spaces). If you want to see a good example, look at Zimbabwe now, Wiemar Germany post-WW1, and some others. Toilet paper will literally be worth more than a dollars. There will be so much around you will have no problem keeping warm in the winter cause you can burn it. How did we get here? Well, it all started in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act and creation of the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve has the sole ability to print money. Originally, we were still on a gold standard but this officially ended in 1933-35 when FDR outlawed ownership of gold, confiscated gold, and only allowed foreigners to exchange dollars for gold. Then in 1971 Nixon, after all the printing going on to pay for the Vietnam war and to pay for the newly founded welfare society created by LBJ's "Great Society", had printed far more dollars than we could cover at the $35/ounce of gold. He told everyone to basically puck off; youre not getting any gold because we ran out. After that, the inflation really took off. This was because of the deficit spending from the national government for this program and that program and this war and that war and their unwillingness to increase visible taxes because if people knew how much these programs and wars really cost and how ineffective they really are, they might not like the people in government so much and we might have a repeat of 1776. Inflation though, is a hidden tax. It steals not your money, but your purchasing power. If the money supply increases 10%, your money has lost 10% of its power. This is what has caused the steady rise in prices over the decades. The sharp rise in gas is directly caused by inflation since 2001 and it's going to kill the dollar, the life blood of our economy. http://www.kongregate.com/forums/9/topics/22524
