The End of Prosperity

That's the title of economist Stephen Moore's most recent book on how higher taxes will doom the economy . . . if we let it happen.

Yours truly had the pleasure of spending his lunch hour with Moore here in Orlando today. Thanks to Doug Doudney, the unofficial head of the breakfast bunch, for inviting him to join us as the keynote speaker at the Coalition for Property Rights' fall forum.

Ye socks may have read Moore's frequent columns in The Wall Street Journal or seen him on various talking head shows.

He's really a brilliant guy, and had a lot of interesting anecdotes. But, it was his charts that impressed me most. He had more of them than Ross Perot had on the campaign trail back in 1992. All of which reinforced what I already knew, that the increase in the size of government and the level of taxation soon to be instituted by The Disaster in Waiting will lead to even more economic suffering for all Americans.

Almost couldn't finish my lunch.


But, that's not Moore's fault. I encourage you to check out his book, and get prepared!

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=]CLICK HERE[/url]
