David Stockman On Why Financial Reporting Is So Bad

The United States became the economic wonder of the world—producing real wealth and earned prosperity for a higher percentage of her people than probably any nation in all of history—by actually making and selling stuff. We were largely free to work, and to benefit from our efforts. Now, the Federal Reserve has enabled the financial sector to grow its slice of the pie, not by providing real goods or services, but by setting up tollbooths on the economic highway.

Pat Buchanan: Republican Politicians Hate Republican Voters And The Media Applauds
