Can you smell what the economy is cooking??

Essentially the economy has been left alone to heal itself for almost 4 years.  It is a testament to the American spirit and work ethic that we’ve managed to heal ourselves to the extent we have.

Was such a horrendous act that could galvanize The West against Russia inevitable? Was it only a matter of time until a brutal, militaristic dictatorship such as Russia would go too far to get what it wants that it shocks the rest of the world into turning against it in unity?

Hillary Clinton2

Hillary and Bill Clinton are incredibly wealthy people who move in the circles of the same wealthy and powerful who have inordinate control over our democracy and society, they are friends and peers with them…so is it most likely that if elected, she’s going to hammer her best friends to help “the others”?

Leading MMT thinkers and authors insist often and loudly that they are simply trying to describe how money and thereby the economy, government and the private sector work. Whether a capitalist, socialist, communist, or any other -ist, everyone should want to know how the system they exist in operates.
