    An Economist’s 2020 Presidential Election Guide

    This is an objective guide to the US 2020 Presidential election from an economist ‘s standpoint.

  • US Presidential Election 2016

    Who will win the 2016 Presidential election? Update: Trump won. Even if he is not perfect, Clinton would have destroyed America with socialist policies.

Their rants give them feelings of moral superiority because they […]

  • Guns or Butter

    The old political economic argument of guns vs. butter has come to the forefront of the 2012 election.  Those running for President, did not use those terms, but this is what is going on. I was watching the GOP debate last night and I almost fell off my chair when I heard, the GOP nominees […]
