Re: Are you a troubled atheist?

"But what if I'm wrong?" he asks. "Will I go to hell?"

Re: OT? Money and the Human Psyche

Spending time on METaR shows an interest in increasing your stash of financial assets. If hookers and beer were what made someone happy, they would not be here due to the lack of those items.

Well, I would say that is true to a degree among METaRs, otherwise we wouldn't be here. Others it's not so true, because, rather than nurturing their pile of money, they blow it all on other

OT? Money and the Human Psyche

A BBC podcast that might be of interest. The results provided me with some potential insights into some of the behavior I've witnessed here at TMF. Of course the results of a few psychological studies may or may not be valid, but I hope the podcast [more]

Re: Congratulations, Republicans

By the end of this term, the republican house willl have had 6 years of absolutely nothing.

Far better that than the mess they left us in 2008 after they had 6 years of productivity in ideological governing.

Could you please confine your personal argument to one thread or even better in emails.

I was asked to restate my original post, so I did.

Re: 17% inflation....with US trading partners?

Thanks Poz for waiting for the correct answer. You might want to rewrite your initial post.

Re: Lacy Hunt-QE Not Going to Work

It's easy to rule economically if the rest of the developed world is knocked out of the competition. The only way to do that would be to create WWIII, and to make sure we are the only ones left standing again.
