Economic Myths

Economic Myths
"The Olympian gods" Nicolas-André Monsiau (1754–1837) Mainstream economists and so-called experts have filled the minds of most Americans with many economic myths that are constantly reinforced by the media and repeated on the streets. These myths are erroneous at best, sometimes based on half truths. The majority of them are just false. Inflation and Energy Myths Inflation — or, rather, the general rise in prices[1] —and the increase in energy prices are issues that have always created numerous economic myths.The following are some of the most common ones. Myth # 1: "Dependence on Foreign Oil" This myth basically suggests that the problem with oil prices is due to America's "dependence" on foreign oil. The high price of oil has nothing to do with its origin; the price of oil is determined in international markets. Importing a product does not mean you "depend" on it. Myth # 2: "Inflation is caused by rising oil prices." False. At first this myth might seem true. Consumption Myths False. Note

The global debt clock Top Marginal Tax Rates 1916-2010 Green line is the top marginal rate for married couples filing jointly (most years dividends were tax like ordinary income until 2003), orange is the top rate for income from capital gains. The top corporate tax rate is included for comparison. Your marginal tax rate is the rate you pay on the "last dollar" you earn; but when you view the taxes you paid as a percentage of your income, your effective tax rate is less than your marginal rate, especially after you take into account the deductions and exemptions, i.e. income that is not subject to any tax. Over the years, changing the amount of taxes people pay was accomplished not just by changing rates but by changing the income limits of the tax brackets.

Sex Health & Toys The Case Against the Fed Money and Politics By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency. The CIA and other intelligence operations are under control of the Congress. They are accountable: a Congressional committee supervises these operations, controls their budgets, and is informed of their covert activities. It is true that the committee hearings and activities are closed to the public; but at least the people's representatives in Congress insure some accountability for these secret agencies. It is little known, however, that there is a federal agency that tops the others in secrecy by a country mile. Thus, when the first Democratic president in over a decade was inaugurated in 1993, the maverick and venerable Democratic Chairman of the House Banking Committee, Texan Henry B. It was to be expected that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan would strongly resist any such proposals. 1.

CLBS Report, System Open Market Account, January 2011 Domestic SOMA Portfolio Recent Developments The SOMA portfolio increased between November 24 and December 29, 2010. This development is consistent with the FOMC's announcement of its intention to expand its holdings of Treasury securities in the SOMA portfolio by $600 billion by the end of the second quarter of this year. The FRBNY published on January 12, 2011, information on prices paid for securities included in the mid-December 2010 and mid-January 2011 outright Treasury operations.

How I Make Thousands of Dollars Per Month Online 183 Comments 7 minutes Unless you’ve read Cloud Living, you probably have no idea how I make money online. My about page makes it clear that I do make a great living from the internet, but I’ve never wrote about how. I’m not going to claim my process is anything new, because there were people using similar methods for a long time before me. My first major website made money through contextual advertising (Google Adsense) and selling ads on a CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) basis. I’ve started websites from scratch, quickly built them to 50,000 visitors per month, and then sold them on for an easy profit. There are many more ways to make money online, but the process that generates most of my income is simply this: I direct search engine traffic to landing pages, and then send that traffic to product pages as an affiliate. If someone buys a product on the site I sent them to, then I make a commission. I’ve just given you a quick overview, so let’s get into the specifics.

Policy pointers SOMA and Liquidity Swaps, Jan 2010 System Open Market Account (SOMA) Recent Developments The SOMA portfolio has continued to expand, although the pace of Federal Reserve purchases of securities under the large-scale asset purchase programs (LSAPs) has slowed compared to its pace last year. As of December 30, 2009, the Federal Reserve held about $160 billion in agency debt and $908 billion in agency-guaranteed mortgage-backed securities (MBS) under the Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC's) LSAPs.

OMOs can be divided into two types: permanent and temporary. Table 2. Each OMO affects the Federal Reserve's balance sheet; the size and nature of the effect depend on the specifics of the operation.

Manilla » Free Online Account and Bill Organizer handwriting tips You’ve decided you want to improve your handwriting and you’re probably hoping a fountain pen will do the trick -- maybe a friend told you it would. Maybe you’re just adventurous and you want to try your hand at calligraphy (or you might, once your handwriting improves). Good for you! A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. Most likely, you’ll need to retrain your arm and hand. After coaching handwriting and teaching calligraphy over the years, I’ve learned to see the characteristics of those who’ll be able to pick up the necessary motions quickly from those who’ll have to work a bit harder. Crampy, uneven letters are often the result of drawing the letters with the fingers rather than using the whole arm to write. People who inevitably have trouble with handwriting and calligraphy write with their fingers. It will take time to re-train muscles and learn new habits.
