Re: My suggestion on healthcare reform

If it turns out that the US taxpayer is paying for the profit portion of the entire world's drug supply, I'm guessing that's a bit unfair. The drug company would simply have to consider increasing their prices somewhat world-wide to [more]

Re: High-flying euro pushes down European shares

In the context of shares in a stock market valuated in a currency going down as the currency rises, the value of your Euro oriented shares may not have declined anywhere as precipitously when evaluated in terms of the (now weaker) US dollar. As an [more]

Re: An alternative view of the S&P Bull run

For years I have invested in foreign currencies and equities (currently US, Aussie, Swiss and Japanese, but occasionally Euro). It is the norm (though now always true) that an increase in a currency compared to yours is accompanied by a drop in the [more]

Re: I'm Free, I'm Free, I'm Free!

One wonders what the tax cost would be for a town/city to build and maintain its own free high speed Wi-Fi service? I bet , at some point during the roll-out, whoever the incumbent is might even offer bandwidth to them at a significant discount [more]
