believe that I was lucky to have suffered. Some people dont realize that
in suffering there is great potential, because if you are deprived for any reason..
politically, financially, socially or otherwise.. and if you set your mind in
the right direction, you will find that the only way to survive is for you to
excel, by being better so you can be treated better.

Financial education needs to become a part of our national curriculum and scoring
systems so that its not just the rich kids that learn about money.. its
all of us.

Before you can really start setting financial goals, you need to determine

The basic prescription for preventing deflation is straightforward, at least
in principle: Use monetary and fiscal policy as needed to support aggregate spending,
in a manner as nearly consistent as possible with full utilization of economic
resources and low and stable inflation. In other words, the best way to get out
of trouble is not to get into it in the first place.
Bernanke - Problems
The sources of deflation are not a mystery. Deflation is in almost all cases
a side effect of a collapse of aggregate demand.. a drop in spending so severe
that producers must cut prices on an ongoing basis in order to find buyers.
Bernanke - Finance
Theres no denying that a collapse in stock prices today would pose
serious macroeconomic challenges for the United States. Consumer spending would
slow, and the U.S. economy would become less of a magnet for foreign investors.
Economic growth, which in any case has recently been at unsustainable levels,
would decline somewhat. History proves, however, that a smart central bank can
protect the economy and the financial sector from the nastier side effects of
a stock market collapse.
Bernanke - Problems
did a very good job in the early 1990s. But recently hes fallen prey
to this crazy theory that prosperity causes inflation. So theyre trying
to slow the economy down by raising interest rates. Its like a doctor saying
youre in great health, so we have to make you sick a little bit. Its
a bizarre theory. Its going to hurt our economy.

It has been my

in understanding its conceptual foundations, enhances a person's ability to handle

After you marry, every asset either of
you acquires is jointly held. That's why
you both need to be in sync on your long-term
financial goals, from paying off the mortgage
to putting away for retirement. Ideally,
you should talk about all this before
you wed. If you don't, you can end up
deeply frustrated and financially spent.

In all realms of life it takes courage

What we need to do is not only live within
our means, but start paying down the deficit,
and offer an opportunity at least for
the next generation to get out.

The pace at eBay was frantic and urgent.
We knew that if we didn't move fast, somebody
would come into the market and quash us.
Participant doesn't make a lot of sense
from a financial investment perspective,
so it's unlikely that other people will
be approaching the business in the same
way. So you see less urgency; you see
a thoroughness and willingness to spend
extra time to get things right. Which
I think is really important.

If the statistics are right, the Jews
constitute but one percent of the human
race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff
of star dust lost in the blaze of the
Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly
to be heard of, but he is heard of, has
always been heard of. He is as prominent
on the planet as any other people, and
his commercial importance is extravagantly
out of proportion to the smallness of
his bulk. His contributions to the world's
list of great names in literature, science,
art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse
learning are also away out of proportion
to the weakness of his numbers.

We also need to reduce corporate tax rates.
This applies to small, medium and large
businesses. At 35 percent, we have the
second highest corporate rates in the
world. It restricts the growth of small
enterprises that need to plow capital

companies and jobs to move overseas.
