    On bringing down health care costs: "The free market is the best mechanism that we know to bring costs down. We've all experienced that in our daily lives, we see it in cellular telephones, flat screen TVs, laptop computers, every year they get more complicated, more intricate and every year the price comes down. Why isn't that working with healthcare? The reason is government . . ."

    In this week's much anticipated State of the Union address, President Obama again demonstrated his poor understanding of the fundamental problems that confront our nation. By following the advice of the same people who helped guide our economy to the precipice of total collapse, Obama now threatens to push it over the edge. Notwithstanding his well crafted lip service regarding future spending restraint, the essence of his current program is for more government spending and larger deficits. For all his talk about job creation, his policies will further burden those who might otherwise create those jobs with higher taxes and...

    Watching the world's leaders stumble their way through the economic crisis, it often feels as if political success and economic understanding are mutually exclusive. Even the Chinese, who over the past generation have engineered a dramatic turnaround from their Maoist economic nightmare, show a remarkable willingness to pursue a monetary policy (a currency peg to the U.S. dollar) that yields no benefit to their citizens. Amid this morass of economic quackery, it is refreshing to see a clear ray of sanity emanating from one country: Poland. Last summer, I was invited to speak at the Economic Forum in Krynica, a...

    Peter Schiff attacks Obama's stimulus package. If you don't know who Peter Schiff is, he is a Republican (and a genius) who is running for Senate in Connecticut. He believes that America is going to enter a very severe double dip recession within the next two years (between 2010-2012), because of Obama's socialist economic policies. He believes that there will be a currency crisis due to the Fed's mismanagement of the dollar. While Ben Bernanke failed to see the housing bubble of 2007, and the ensuing recession that we are currently in, Peter Schiff predicted it with perfect clarity in...

    Embattled Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd (D) has scheduled a press conference at his home in Connecticut Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek re-election, according to sources familiar with his plans. Dodd's retirement comes after months of speculation about his political future, and amid faltering polling numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term. It also comes less than 24 hours after Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek re-election. State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is widely expected to step into the void...

    In its recent look back on the first ten years of the century, Time Magazine proclaimed the period to be "the decade from hell." The editors made their case based on what they saw as the signature events of the last ten years, notably the ravages of terrorism, failed wars, and a global financial crisis. Taken together, these factors produced an era that Time is convinced will be remembered as one of the low points in our history. As the media hates to dwell on the negative, the commentary was rife with notes of optimism about pending recovery. It could...

They might argue on how we grow it but they all want it to be bigger and the argument is :should the taxes be 38% or 32%?’ No one is talking about having them zero or ten percent.

"These are coordinated attacks,'' Andrew Schiff said in a brief phone interview. It wasn't the first time the website has been hit, Andrew Schiff said.

As usual, it falls on me to rain on the parade. Even the giddiest commentators admit that the upside GDP surprise resulted almost entirely from government interventions.

I got an email from Congressman Adam Schiff (Democrat-Pasadena, California) today with one of his hoaked up opinion poll questions: "Should the health care reform bill include the public option?" (the buzz words "public option" means an option for a government run insurance policy as well as private insurance policies). This type of question already is conclusionary that a health care reform bill will be passed by Congress. In other words, the results are already loaded in favor of health care reform. The question is dishonest. It doesn't ask...

Schiff credits poor policy decisions over the past nine years for setting the U.S. dollar up to take a major fall against commodities and other currencies when China and Japan finally stop buying our debt. "Ben Bernanke is keeping his record of perfection intact of never getting anything right,” Schiff told Yahoo! Tech Ticker. “Once again he's gotten it wrong."

However, Schiff says, the dollar will weaken even further as the yen becomes a stronger currency, which makes the...

    It’s been over a year since Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) energized libertarians with his presidential candidacy, but the movement he inspired continues to ripple across the landscape. In at least a handful of House, Senate and gubernatorial contests across the country, former Paul supporters have emerged as credible contenders — or possible spoilers — ensuring that his message, once relegated to the fringes of Republican politics, continues to be heard. Paul began the 2008 presidential campaign as an afterthought but quickly won the attention of a previously dismissive GOP establishment and news media by generating intense grass-roots and online...

Over $300,000 of these donations were made since Friday after some of Peter's supporters organized a 'moneybomb.' This compares to the $753,000 raised by the Republican frontrunner Rob Simmons from April through June. It is our belief that Rob Simmons would've voted with Chris Dodd in favor of the government's stimulus plans and bailouts, which have gotten our country trillions of dollars deeper into debt.

    Rising U.S. stock prices — particularly following a 50 percent decline — say nothing about the health of the U.S. economy or the prospects for a recovery, says Euro Pacific CEO Peter Schiff. "In fact, relative to the meteoric rise of foreign stock markets over the past six months, U.S. stocks are standing still." "If anything, it is the strength in overseas markets that is dragging U.S. stocks along for the ride." There is an inexplicable but widely held belief that stock market movements are predictive of economic conditions, Schiff writes at GoldSeek.com.

    There is an inexplicable, but somehow widely held, belief that stock market movements are predictive of economic conditions. As such, the current rally in U.S. stock prices has caused many people to conclude that the recession is nearing an end. The widespread optimism is not confined to Wall Street, as even Barack Obama has pointed to the bubbly markets to vindicate his economic policies. However, reality is clearly at odds with these optimistic assumptions. In the first place, stock markets have been taken by surprise throughout history. In the current cycle, neither the market nor its cheerleaders saw this recession...

    Peter Schiff, the libertarian economist and investor who’s launched a dark-horse bid for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), is raking in cash from a Ron Paul-endorsed, 2007-style “moneybomb.” As of 3:30, Schiff supporters had raised more than $100,000 today for the candidate at Schiffathon.com, giving him more than $550,000 in campaign cash since entering the race in mid-July with the aim of raking in $750,000 by day’s end. By comparison, former Rep. Rob Simmons (R-Conn.), the front-runner for the GOP nomination, raised $753,000 from April through June.

    Connecticut investment advisor Peter Schiff (R) is up with a new website for his exploratory Senate campaign (www.schiffforsenate.com), and the site reports he has already raised $465,000 online for his bid. Schiff is one of four Republicans running for the right to face Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) next year, and he looks to be successfully tapping many of the libertarian-leaning donors who helped long shot presidential candidate Ron Paul raise big money for his campaign. Schiff served as an adviser to Paul's campaign. Like Paul, Schiff has been the beneficiary of a series of one-day fundraising moneybombs, in which donors...

    Supporters of Peter Schiff's nascent bid for U.S. Senate plan to unleash another money bomb, or one-day donation blitz, tomorrow.

Known for his outspoken opposition to federal bailouts and stimulus efforts, Schiff has made frequent appearances on CNBC and other networks and is credited with having foreseen the current financial crisis. He served as economic adviser to Ron Paul, who sought...
