Sanity Zone 10-28-2010

Posted 10-28-2010 at 02:54 PM by xan

After watching a bit of propaganda from both political extremes, it occurred to me that people may not know what kind of economic policy options that are available to our leaders. Believe it or not, itís pretty easy to draw up and easy to understand.

I realize that there is a lot of anger in some peopleís attitude toward our government, and it is rightly deserved. Our leaders have screwed up. However, policy options and their effects on the economy and jobs donít change when thereís...

Ok, it's the Friday before the big game ... snack list filled out? check ... beverage list? check ... sides? check ... main entree? not checked, probably gonna' be a last minute, game day decision. Always have a hard time with this one, do you go with ribs, pizza, wings, subs or just all of 'em? Gotta' get the squares board up and see what oddball wagers are out there this year ...

So, I've talked around, did some research, got a feel from the people and the overwhelming, underlying...

The Road Gets Tougher

Posted 10-04-2013 at 04:26 AM by BoudinSandwich

I was debating on whether or not I'd post this week, but since I'm superstitious and the Saints are 4-0, I guess I have to. Again, I'd like to thank everyone who reads these things. This post, however, I won't be patting myself on the back for realizing trends early on.

I will say that I was correct in the Cardinals and Dolphins being 'what the doctor ordered' in terms of getting the Saints' redzone offense back on track. The Saints have once again proven themselves to be masterful...

Sanity Zone 8-28-2014 Looking down the Barrel

Posted 07-28-2014 at 04:01 PM by xan

A lot has happened in the last 6 months that seem to be going under the radar. Depending which side of the issue you're on, you could be looking down the trigger side or the exit side of the barrel.

First up, the exchange rate is really favorable for the US. That's excellent for anyone who likes a job. Demand for Manufacturing jobs are increasing, service jobs are increasing, wages are rising, inflation is creeping up (a good thing, for now) and asset prices are recovering. All...

Sanity Zone 10-2-2013 Shut Down and Loving it.

Posted 10-02-2013 at 09:54 AM by xan

Sorry for not posting anything for a while. I'd offer half-hearted excuses, but it's only because there's been nothing inspiring to talk about. But joy is back!

As a college professor, I like to use examples of catastrophically bad decision-making as teaching tools. Examining the process and the reasons for failure teach us a great deal about how the world works, and how to identify when we might be in a similar situation. There is a side effect of also being very funny. It's easier...
