Triple Lutz Report #260 – Progressives Hate The Free Market

from Financial Survival Network Last week was a busy one, but one interview that stood out was my talk with Ellen Shaffer. She is associated with a San Francisco Bay Area think tank.

Triple Lutz Report #255 – Is Your College Degree Worth A Half Million Dollars?

from Financial Survival Network How much is your college degree really worth? If you got it 32 years ago like me, it’s worth much more than if you’re getting it today. College tuition has increased by many times more than the real rate of inflation, let alone the phony one the government cooks up. This means […]

Triple Lutz Report #252 – The Continuing Obamacare Meltdown

from Financial Survival Network Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it is. Seems the lazy bureaucrats have a real problem on their hands.

from Financial Survival Network Do you live in a Blue State complete with high taxes and numerous regulatory busy bodies? Perhaps it’s time to move to a Red State.

Triple Lutz Report #244 – Is Detroit The City Of The Future?

from FinancialSurvivalNet This week Michigan’s governor Rick Snyder reluctantly appointed an Emergency Manager to run the failed city of Detroit. The manager will have sweeping powers that allow him to void contracts, lay-off employees, reorganize entire departments and basically do whatever he pleases. Whether this will allow the city to avoid bankruptcy is an open question. […]

Triple Lutz Report – Storage Wars, IRA Wars, 401k Wars

from FinancialSurvivalNet The biggest pay day on that fraudulent reality TV show Storage Wars was hit by Darrell Sheets on yesterday’s season finale. He picked up a cool $300,000 worth of rare art work, which set a show record. Of course whether it was real or not is completely beside the point. In our alternate reality […]
