Skousen Investor Cafe: Supreme Alert: Court Endorses “Unlimited Government!” Stock Market Falls Again…

06/28/2012

The fallout of the Supreme Court decision will be felt for months… In essence, the decision opens the floodgates for a bigger, more intrusive, more dangerous government.

Skousen Investor Cafe: Hayek Vs. Keynes: Who’s on Top?

Skousen Investor Cafe: Investors Should Beware of Tepid U.S. Money Supply Growth

05/24/2012

Investors would be wise to take notice that the U.S. money supply (M2) is growing only at a tepid 3% rate, compared to double-digit percentage rates last year.

Skousen Investor Cafe: I Lead All Investment Writers in This Category

05/17/2012

As an investment newsletter editor, I probably lead all other writers in this one category: traveling and speaking.

I’m almost constantly on […]

I spent this week in Beverly Hills attending the famous Milken Institute Global Conference, hosted by Michael Milken, and the watch word I heard repeatedly about the U.S. economy was “fiscal cliff.” The huge debt load the United States is facing on top of the trillions in unfunded liabilities is cause for alarm.
