  • Utahns Fear Obama Will Heed Environmentalists, Not Them, on National Monument Designation

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 26, 2016 | Senator Mike Lee
    This past Monday marked the 20th anniversary of President Bill Clinton using the Antiquities Act to create the 1.5 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. For most Utahns, this date is not a cause for celebration. It’s a source of anger toward what many see as an out-of-touch and overbearing federal government Infamously, the Clinton administration failed to notify the people of Utah prior to announcing the monument designation—probably because the administration knew that nearly everyone in the state was opposed to the idea. Utah’s congressional delegation, state and county leaders, and local residents all warned that a...

    As the first one-on-one US presidential debate began, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump put forward competing visions for the US economy... Mrs Clinton said: "The central question in this election is really, what kind of country do we want to be and what kind of future we'll build together. "First, we have to build an economy that works for everyone, not just just those at the top. That means we need new jobs, good jobs with rising incomes.

    The state’s 21st Century Investment Fund (CIF) has spent nearly $100 million on various types of subsidies and other forms of involvement in businesses since 2006, yet only 1,052 jobs have been created or retained because of it, according to the fund’s 2015 report. In addition, some investment groups received millions through the fund but created zero jobs and no proceeds. The state describes the fund as a program that “encourages the growth of emerging Michigan companies, diversifies the state’s economy by creating and retaining knowledge-based jobs and grows a community of investors to create a long-term, sustainable capital ecosystem...

    Hillary Clinton got back on the campaign trail on Thursday after taking three days off for pneumonia, and the Democratic presidential candidate faced a more challenging political landscape, with Republican rival Donald Trump rising in opinion polls. Her illness coincided with a mini-surge by Trump, who has drawn even or taken a slight lead in national polls. Polls in battleground states where the race is likely to be decided showed Trump now leading in Iowa, Ohio, Florida and Nevada, and tied in North Carolina. Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, said the candidate and her aides expected the contest to be...

    Donald J. Trump unveiled a pledge on Thursday to create 25 million jobs over the next decade, but he offered few details on how he would achieve that ambitious goal as president. In remarks that may stir new consternation abroad, Mr. Trump told the Economic Club of New York that he would pay for his economic agenda in part by requiring allies to shoulder the full cost of American military resources deployed in their defense. Mr. Trump has long criticized the country’s defense arrangements, but on Thursday he drew an uncommonly straight line between his job-creation promises and the “billions...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump put new details on a much scaled-back tax plan on Thursday, one that is projected to cost the federal government less money but also to deliver fewer benefits to taxpayers than Trump's original proposal. Trump's economic team estimated that the complete tax plan, combined with rollbacks to some federal regulations and new initiatives to open up more public and private lands for oil and gas drilling, would deliver 3.5 percent growth per year for the next decade and produce 25 million new jobs. The changes also appear to be an attempt to reduce what analysts...

Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, estimated his plan would create 25 million in new jobs, and that the massive tax cut would be offset by gross domestic product growth of at least 3.5%, on average, each year for the next decade. "This is the most pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-family plan put forth perhaps in the history of our country," Trump said, according to...

    This Labor Day, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs and 400 coal mines than it did when Barack Obama was elected in 2008, showing that the president has followed through on his pledge to “bankrupt” the coal industry. A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term. During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. Currently, coal mining employs 69,460 Americans, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Much of...

A reversal, if you will.Nonsense. With President Nieto, Donald Trump was at once patriotic, forceful and diplomatic.In close to two decades of analyzing American politics, I've yet to hear an American leader address his Mexican counterpart as forcefully as Mr. Trump addressed President Nieto.

    The “keep it in the ground” fossil-fuel strategy described by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a “done deal” would kill more than 380,000 jobs and deliver a $70 billion annual hit to the economy, according to a report released Wednesday. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for 21st Century Energy found that banning fossil fuel production on public lands and offshore waters would result in a loss of $70 billion in annual GDP as well as $11.3 billion in royalties, along with massive direct and indirect job losses.

    If there’s one thing that drives the Fact Checker nuts, it’s a repeated talking point that is based on actual data but is obviously misleading. The Clinton campaign is clearly fond of saying that 15 million jobs — or, alternatively, 15 million private-sector jobs — were created in the Obama administration. Clinton frequently indicates that she’s talking about the entire Obama administration. She uses phrases such “than when they took office” or “in the last 7 1/2 years.” But that’s 5 million jobs too many.

    Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, when in fact the results never change, is one definition of insanity. That definition works for economic insanity, too. Over the past seven-and-a-half years, President Obama has maintained a steady course of burdensome new regulations, significant tax increases, and massive federal spending on so-called infrastructure. He has unconstitutionally ordered executive actions, favored labor over business, attacked banks, insulted successful corporate leaders, and backed federal-government mandates on business. And with all this, strong economic recovery from a deep recession -- which has been an American tradition -- never came...

    One week ago, the BEA admitted that it had "found a problem" when it comes to calculating GDP numbers. Specifically it blamed "residual seasonality" adjustments for giving historical GDP numbers a persistent optimistic bias. This came in the aftermath of last week's shocking Q2 GDP report which printed at 1.2%, less than half of Wall Street's consensus. Today, seasonality made another appearance, this time however in the much anticipated July jobs number, which unlike the woeful Q2 GDP number, was the opposite, coming in far higher than expected. In fact it was higher than the top Wall Street estimate.

  • Does America Need More BA Degrees?

    07/29/2016 8:05:55 AM PDT · by pinochet · 116 replies
    If you were to give career advice to a high school student of average intellectual ability (he is not going to medical or engineering school), what kind of advice would it be? We have a shortage of well-trained car mechanics, plumbers, electricians, painters, roofers, and the like. But we have all these BA graduates walking around jobless.
  • Millennials Cause Home Ownership to Drop to It's Lowest Level Since 1965

    After rising just over a decade ago to its highest level ever, the nation's home ownership rate fell to match its all-time low and could drop even further in the months to come. In the second quarter of this year, the rate fell to 62.9 percent, not seasonally adjusted, which is the same as it was in 1965, when the U.S. Census started tracking the metric. During the epic housing boom in the mid-2000s, the rate soared as high as 69.2 percent. That was when politicians touted the so-called "ownership society."

    Having followed China's biggest risk with great interest for the past year, which incidentally is not its $36 trillion in debt, nor its defaults, its zombie companies, its ponzi "wealth products", its currency, its capital outflows, its crony capitalism and corruption, nor its gargantuan capital misallocation, but the threat of a social revolution as a result of a surge in unemployment as entire zombie industries fail, that has always been true biggest risk for Beijing (something the Politburo knows very well), we found it less than surprising when last September a Chinese coal company announced it would fires 100,000. That...
  • Gov. Jerry Brown: Facilitating The Inevitable California Collapse

    California's dear leader is killing the golden state: Californians, gird your loins in anticipation of the tax onslaught “California is definitely back,” Governor Jerry Brown boasted in 2014. Brown then proclaimed the state a “job creation engine,” proving he was still living in the 1960s. However, Brown has shown little stomach for sensible tax and regulatory cuts, and instead pays lip service to the media about how fiscally prudent he is…. everything he touches turns Brown. For a state $130 Billion upside down in budget debt, and another $750 Billion of long term unfunded public employee pension debt, the estrangement...

    They're known as some of the most inspirational businessmen in history. But the success of industry giants such as Sir Richard Branson and Lord Sugar is actually putting working-class boys off of further education. A number of high profile celebrities who have gone on to make their fortunes after dropping out of education or choosing to not go to university are inspiring young men to following in their footsteps, according to a new report.

    A study released by the Pew Research Center on Monday shows a startling development in European attitudes towards Middle Eastern refugees. In eight of the ten countries surveyed, majorities of citizens polled believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism at home. Respondents in Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Greece, and the United Kingdom all responded that they believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism. Respondents in Hungary are most likely (at 76 percent) to believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism, while respondents in Spain are the least likely to believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism (at 40...

    As we enter the final stretch of the presidential election season (Hallelujah!), the rhetoric around jobs — how to create good paying ones, minimize income inequality and bring opportunities back home — is sure to heat up. But what about the challenges facing the growing number of Americans who don’t work in traditional jobs, but are instead gig economy workers — like freelancers, consultants, and contractors — who lack the benefits and legal protections typically provided by employers? Where do Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton stand on them? It matters because millions of Americans — the U.S. Government Accountability Office...
  • Ignore Unemployment Pundits, Low 'Labor-Force Participation' Is The Goal [IT'S GOING BACK UP!!!]

    ...Obama’s critics on rates of labor-force participation to some degree makes the case for the Obama economy performing better than is widely believed... ... The argument is that assuming rates of participation that prevailed 5, 10 and 15 years ago, the jobless rate would be higher. This statistic is being used to indict the Obama economy, and will similarly be used by Democrats to eviscerate the economy when a Republican is in the White House. Partisans on both sides will miss the point. Up front, this column is not a defense of President Obama or his economy. His administration’s meddling...
  • Why Not Ban The College Degree Box?

    Of late, the Obama administration has been applying pressure to ban the criminal record box – that is, to keep employers from asking if an applicant has ever been convicted. That is supposed to open up more job opportunities for people who have criminal records. It could, but then it could also have harmful consequences if people with past criminal records and current criminal intent are put in jobs where they can commit more crimes. (Another objection is that the federal government has no constitutional authority to dictate hiring policies, but let’s put that aside.) There is another hiring policy...
