  • Stimulus Criticism Mounts Thursday, 29 Jan 2009 | 4:33 PM ET

    The investor class was not nearly as impressed by yesterday’s inauguration as the political class. Inauguration day 2009 was the biggest stock sell off in the history of inaugurations. I’m pulling for Obama; I’m praying for him. But the investor class can’t afford to have anything other than a clear eye unencumbered by gauzy hype.

    No, Obama was not my choice. No, I don’t believe that he is at the present moment a centrist, though history may teach him to be. I’m proud because America showed that she really meant it when she said she want a color blind society.

    Jerry Bowyer

    Remember the wall to wall coverage given to the dangers of outsourcing in the run up to the 2004 presidential election? It was the shark attack story of that summer. Some of us argued that the threat was exaggerated. It turns out that the supply side of outsourcing was as over estimated as the demand side.

  • Jerry Bowyer

    Now, the dictionary has a number of definitions of ‘recession’ the most well known (and precise) of which is: two consecutive quarters of negative GDP. I haven’t been able to find a dictionary which defines a recession as ‘whatever the NBER says it is.’
