Anon, And you wonder why the Country has turned it's back on you and your corrupt/bankrupt ideology.

The tide is turning back to capitalism, and it is turning sharply. Clearly, angst is building up against the communists running the show right now. It is so obvious, so get all your infanticide judges onto the bench while you can because the clock is ticking. It is going to strike first on Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, and it is going to strike very hard on these fools. Chris Dodd is a short-timer.

Obama campaigned as a deficit hawk. Clearly he lied because now deficits are economic stimulus.

Obama campaigned as an anti-lobby machine. Clearly he lied, all he did was move Detroit's unions to the top of the priority list.

Obama said he was going to wage smarter war with his superior judgement, but he didn't say anything about waging HIS VIETNAM quagmire in afghanistan.

When you get right down to it, Barrack Obama is the biggest liar to ever step foot in Washington. It is amazing that our stupid masses bought that BS CHANGE campaign. He is going out the way Jimmy Carter did.

If, as you claim the Fed should have burst the housing ( and stock) bubble, then why should the informed investor not have been afraid of such a scenario and stayed away from such stocks.

Anon, "Tail-Gunner" Joe died of alcoholism at Bethesda years ago, and with him the specter of the Communist Threat. Ever since then, that tired old "Battle Cry" has fallen on deaf ears. Get with it.

While Posner and Company discuss why our banks were forced to take TARP money and now can't repay it (vivid illustration of thuggish government), I asked you a simple question: Which part of the Communist Manifesto does Barrack Obama disagree with...?

It is backdoor Nationalization..., a classic tactic of the egregious Communist.

Where does infanticide fit into the Constitution...? Do you leftists squeeze that into promoting general welfare too? Why not, you've managed to squeeze the Communist Manifesto in there.

Where does stealing private property fit into our Constitution? I guess it didn't, so Ginsburg and the leftists had to change it.

Better get as much communism in while you can..., because the public is going to bring out the whipsaw on your ideology. They know what you are about now...!

This poor guy supposedly killed himself in the basement of his $900k home for his wife and kids to find.

Seriously, who believes that story...? I know of zero government employees who take home enough stress to kill themselves. Most are clock-punchers who sleep too well at night. A bureacracy like this is too big for any one man to go home with such guilt. Call me a skeptic...!

I think it is much more believable that this man refused an offer that was an offer that he couldn't refuse. Obama just put the order in to take him out. Rather than let this guy tell the truth about Chris Dodd and Barrack Obama, it was much easier to just kill him.

"Federal prosecutors in Virginia have been investigating Freddie Mac's business practices. But two U.S. law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the Freddie Mac investigation, said Kellermann was neither a target nor a subject of the investigation and had not been under law enforcement scrutiny."

I mean who really believes this was a suicide? There is absolutely no way this poor guy decided to kill himself so his wife and child could find his dead body in the basement of his $900k home. This just isn't a believable story. He got only a $170k bonus, nothing to harbor guilt over considering guys elsewhere in the industry were taking home multi-million dollar bonuses. He was recently promoted to CFO upon the government takeover. This to me says it is not possible this guy harbored guilt for the ponzi scheme because one govt. employee down the ranks cannot possible assume responsibility for the entire mess in a bureaucracy like this. If anything, his recent promotion to fix the mess would harbor feelings of pride - he's part of the team fixing the disaster.

This guy had been with Freddie for 16 years, even before the Clinton Administration got the ball rolling on subprime lending and the expansion of the "implicit" guarantees. This guy knew something or had something, and somebody in Government whacked him.

It just isn't believable that this was a suicide. Sorry...! The leftists in our media will have to come up with a better excuse to cover up what really happened. Considering how corrupt everything is right now, I'm almost certain this story is a bogus tragedy. It smells terrible.

I wonder if Ken Lewis is next to commit suicide...?

We have entered former USSR territory. Our government is that corrupt. You guys can psychobabble about market behavior from the classroom all you want, most realistic people know what is going on in the real world. It ain't evil markets, it is the black hand.

It would be too obvious if Ken Lewis also committed suicide. I'm sure his story will be a tragic scuba diving accident or something, perhaps down in Cuba since we are such great friends with Castro now...?

Gordon Ghecko was not right. Greed is not always good. This recession was caused by individual greed.

RE: "A FAILURE OF CAPITALISM" I DID NOT GO TO COLLEGE. I QUIT HIGH SCHOOL IN THE SIXTIES BECAUSE I GOT REALLY REALLY TIRED OF IT. I READ A LOT BUT NOT SO MUCH LATELY BECAUSE I SEE PATTERNS. SAME OLD SAME OLD YOU KNOW?
POSNER I SAW AN AD FOR YOUR BOOK IN THE ATLANTIC. I AM TEMPTED TO READ IT. BUT NO, IT'S MORE OF THE SAME DREARY S**T.
YOU KNOW AND I KNOW THAT WHEN A BIG WAD OF WEALTH IS "INVESTED" SOME ONE SOME HOW WILL STEAL IT. IT HAPPENS OVER AND OVER.
IT'S SO MUCH BETTER TO "DROP OUT" AND LIVE A LIFE THAT'S "CLOSELY HELD". BE LITTLE. HAVE LITTLE. MATTER LITTLE. OH, AND DO THIS IN FLORIDA. IT'S WARM THERE.
WHEN YOU ARE PLEASANTLY DRUNK AND WARM YOU DON'T CARE AT ALL ABOUT "CAPITALISM" AND AMERICAN "CULTURE".
SIMPLY SIXTY TWO AND LOVING IT...

One thing about intellectuals is that they possess high self esteems. They esteem themselves over all others and in all ways.

The deep and diversified social thought that comes from a small group of intellectuals talking amongst themselves is something to be admired. They all think alike, because they are all so independent of thought and open minded. If only we could all be so gifted, there would be no need for any political parties for we would all agree with our intellectual superiors and utopia would finally arrive on earth. No more arguments, no more thought, no more preferences, everyone would be raised to the level of glorious sameness like our good professors.

Take global warming, for example. If we are all as smart as our intellectuals, we would know that not only are Al Gore's global warming proclaimations real, but that if we would just shut up and fork over our money to the government, the intellectuals would be able to reset the climate and fix the whole mess for us. Lord only know the globe suffered and managed to survive the many periods of global warming and cooling that occured on earth before our intellectual saviours, or any of the lessor humans arrived on earth.

Well all I can say is thank goodness we have professors on the case of saving the Republican Party through ecouraging the sameness with the intellectuals in the Democrat Paty. I don't know how they find the time while working so hard to control the climate of the globe. Come to think of it, America's intellectuals bring up sweet memories of old Europe's priesthood and royalty. Those were the days, by God.

What quantitative hypothesis could be more general than the rational hypothesis and yet as useful in forecasting group behavior?

Stock market research is essential to good financial and investment decision making. The importance of this research means that it should be a priority before you consider putting your money into a stock. You wouldn’t likely buy a product that you did not understand. Your stock investments should be looked at in the same way. Stock market research can reveal a lot about a stock and its company. By doing research you will be able to determine the market price and trading volume for the stock, the strengths and weaknesses of the underlying company, the high and low prices for the stock over both short and extended time frames, the profits and earnings for the company, and so much more.

Thanks,
