Items from Mr. Econocobas:

Switzerland Wins As Its Central Bank Surrenders

Video: Peter Schiff :: Inflation Deterring Economic Growth

The Euro Crashes To 12 Year Lows And Now The US Commerce Secretary Starts To Grumble About A Strong Dollar – Keep in mind the only way to win a currency war is to not fight and surrender, but don’t be mistaken the U.S. will likely join the war in full force again soon, in a race to the bottom.

Why Falling Prices Are Actually a Really Bad Thing – This is utter NONSENSE and goes to show how basic economic common sense isn’t so common any more. The only true statement is #5, but it cuts both ways, inflation kills savers. So what do you want to reward, saving and producing OR borrowing and consuming? Again complete nonsense from the financial media.
