Is going to college worth it? College tuition has increased at a faster rate than housing, energy, food, and medical care costs over the last decade.

mybudget360.com / by mybudget360 / October 29, 2014

For an entire generation it was an easy question to answer. Is college worth it? Absolutely. There was little debate regarding the “worth” of a college education. Of course this question was usually asked during more affordable times and not when $1.2 trillion in student debt was [...]

Goldman Expects “Steady As She Goes” FOMC With QE Ending On Schedule

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/29/2014 11:51

Of the last 150 years of developed market monetary policy, we suspect nothing will prepare market participants or Fed members for the twisted terms and double-speak the FOMC will try to unleash today as they attempt to ‘end’ the most extreme policy measures ever. Goldman Sachs’ [...]

Lately, there has been much anguished consternation, especially among the tenured US economics professors (primarily those who make 6-digits or more per year) and of course, the Federal Reserve where as we revealed last week, at least 113 government workers make $250,000 (excluding bonuses) and thus all [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/22/2014 09:58

What a difference 24 hours makes. Yesterday, ECB rumors sparked precious metal buying on heavy volume. Today, more denials of ECB corporate bond buying combined with a slightly-hotter-than-expected inflation print (i.e. lower odds of Fed unleashing QE4) has sent silver (and gold) tumbling… on very heavy volume…

Carl Icahn: “The Fed Turned This Market Around Here”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/21/2014 21:17

By now, 6 years after America’s grand experiment in recreating Soviet-style central planning started, it should be clear to all except that subset of Homo Sapiens also known as “economists”, that the Fed’s QE is not helping the economy. In fact, it is merely boosting [...]
