Vince Lombardi, the famous American football coach, once said, “Winners never quit and quitters never win.” Maybe he meant that winners overcome obstacles to reach their goals while quitters give up and fall short…or something to that effect.
Certainly, this makes for a good bumper sticker. Perhaps it’s a helpful quote for the first time marathon runner to repeat come mile 20. Saying it aloud may somehow will them across the finish line.
But what about those who never quit, yet still never win? By default does that (Read More....)

The European Central Bank initiated a new mass money debasement scheme yesterday. If you recall, this involves buying €60 billion ($66 billion) a month of European government bonds. Somehow this is supposed to improve the economy.

No place is the mix of geopolitics and economics more turbulent than the muddy waters of oil and gas resources. This week they were muddied up some more. On Tuesday, the United States and the European Union sprayed Russia with economic sanctions…restricting their access to capital and oil development technologies.
“The measures mark the start of a new phase in the biggest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Cold War, which worsened dramatically after the downing of Malaysian flight MH17 over rebel-held territory on July 17 by what Western countries say was a (Read More....)

For years, the United States have been considered as the top manufacturing country in the world. Before World War 2, the U.S have already been generating manufactured goods and production was tripled when the war eventually started. In 2007, the United States has a manufacturing output of $1.831 trillion, which
is around 12% of the entire GDP or gross domestic product. In simple terms, that’s $12,206 USD for every person within a 150 million labor force. With this kind of information, you’d think the United States would have the biggest output per capita in the world as well, did you? In reality, that is not the case. Japan gets the highest output.
Yet, these statistics were made years ago. The economic crisis not only affected the United States, but the rest of the world as well.
