Roma Looks Unstoppable

Roma has convinced me that it deserves this championship. I believe that Napoli is going to be the contender. Juventus instead is using the referee crutch and has already lost credibility. . . . → Read More: Roma Looks Unstoppable

Sailing Into Fiscal Headwinds

In my last post, I said that the Fed made the right decision because the economy has been weak this quarter and it is going to face some fiscal headwinds. By fiscal headwinds I was really envisioning the debilitating debate in Washington over the debt ceiling. I should have been more specific and called . . . → Read More: Sailing Into Fiscal Headwinds

It Is A Different Inter This Year

Inter destroyed Sassuolo today 7-0. But all the top five contenders won and the standings are unchanged. The most impressive victory was by Napoli at Milan’s expense. I now see Napoli and Roma as legitimate (not accidental) table leaders. Lazio and Milan have already lost touch with the top of the table. . . . → Read More: It Is A Different Inter This Year

Fed Tapering Will Have to Wait

The economy is not strong enough to begin tapering bond purchases by the Fed. Mr. Bernanke, in my opinion, made the right decision that will help the economy. The head winds of fiscal tightening are too strong to add to them. As a small business owner I say thank you for not delivering a double punch (tapering plus debt-ceiling cuts). . . . → Read More: Fed Tapering Will Have to Wait

Inter Survives the Juventus Test

Inter rose to the Juventus challenge and tied against it by scoring first. But it couldn’t rise further and beat a strong opponent. It seems that Inter can have a good season and perhaps even rise to the third spot. . . . → Read More: Inter Survives the Juventus Test

Not Entirely Surprisingly, Payrolls Disappoint

Although the impact of the Fed’s announcement to taper its Quantitative Easing program had a greater-than-expected impact on the economy, I think that that impact has been absorbed. The one-two punch of tapering and fiscal tightening would be a blow so I hope that Congress will be sensible in October. . . . → Read More: Not Entirely Surprisingly, Payrolls Disappoint

First Time in 10 Years Inter Wins Its First Two Matches of The Season

I have been and Inter fan for as long as I can remember. With few exceptions, the disappointments have been a constant. This year should be no different, but a 2-0 start casts a shadow of a doubt. . . . → Read More: First Time in 10 Years Inter Wins Its First Two Matches of The Season

We live in a technological age where everything is digitized; blogs, e-mails, instant messages, text messages, you get the picture. Because of all the digitized data we send and receive, we no longer have a need to use the old school method of solid pen and paper documentation. It is very telling to even . . . → Read More: Handwriting? Who does that any more?
