    President Barack Obama

    Either Barak Obama fixes what’s broken in the economy, or he will be remembered for spending his entire first term blaming George Bush.

  • The jobs numbers were lousy (as we predicted). The Administration’s solution is small business tax cuts. While this is a good idea in the long haul, it is not a solution to the short term problem. Simple logic says you don’t hire a worker or invest in a piece of equipment that doesn’t pay for itself.

  • Morici: Who Needs The Euro Anyway? Wednesday, 26 May 2010 | 11:47 AM ET
    Euro coins

    Once upon a time, the European Economic Community-remember that quaint post-World War II institution-thrived without a single currency.

  • Stop Office Meeting Madness Tuesday, 18 May 2010 | 1:13 PM ET

    I hate meetings. Everyone gets together in a room, and suddenly someone wants to turn it into a social hour. Others like to hear themselves pontificate. It's human nature when you're meeting face to face—the cadence of required pleasantries, the necessary warm up before FINALLY getting to the point, the public comment period which no one seems willing to end, the always-too-long wind down.
