Obama hails tax hikes for the rich in fiscal cliff deal

www.euronews.com US President Barack Obama headed back to Hawaii on Wednesday and a Christmas holida www.euronews.com US President Barack Obama headed back to Hawaii on Wednesday and a Christmas holiday he cut short to help finalise a last minute fiscal cliff deal. During a late night session, Congress passed a Senate-backed bill, revising drastic tax hikes and spending cuts which economists feared could spark a new recession. Obama said it was the right deal for the country: "Thanks to the votes of Democrats and Republicans in Congress, I will sign a law that raises taxes on the wealthiest two per cent of Americans, while preventing a middle class tax hike that could have sent the economy back into recession and obviously have a severe impact on families across America." The deal will bring in an extra 600 billion dollars in taxes from the rich over ten years. But ordinary Americans won't be left unscathed as a previous payroll tax cut - enacted to stimulate the economy - has now ended. Despite the need to keep consumers spending, neither the Republicans or Democrats have fought to extend it. As for the planned spending cuts, they've only been delayed for two months to allow for a new deal. Find us on: Youtube bit.ly Facebook www.facebook.com Twitter twitter.com Length: 00:00:54

Keynesianism vs Austrian Economics. Keynesianism Explained (1/2) www.SuccessCouncil.com ep#13

www.successcouncil.com Today we are going to look at the basic differences between Austrian Economic www.successcouncil.com Today we are going to look at the basic differences between Austrian Economics and Keynesian Economics. We will split this episode into 2 short parts. Lets start with Keynesianism. Whether you know it or not, you are probably already very familiar with this philosophy. Over the last 50 years, it has become the basis for all Western economies. Walk into any economics classroom anywhere in the world and you will probably find a Keynesian teaching it. Most Academics, politicians, and journalists today are Keynesians. The easiest way to spot a Keynesian? Their "god" is "spending". Everything they say and think revolves around keeping people spending, and getting people to spend more. And if they won't spend, take it off of them and spend it for them. The way to stimulate the economy is to spend. In fact, suggesting anything else is laughable, like suggesting to any religious person that there might be another god. {Insert Video 1} And the bigger the problem, the more you should spend. And like any religious leader, when worshipping their god has negative consequences, you blame the people for not worshipping their god enough. {Insert Video 2} Now for believers in Austrian economics, their "god" is "productivity". Everything they say and think revolves around being more productive. They say the only way to stimulate the economy is to produce more with what you have. Now everybody knows that bureaucracy kills productivity. Even Keynesians know that. But ... Length: 00:02:31

Corbett: "Japan Asian Basket Case": 5th Recession in 15 Years

Europe's drawn-out efforts to pull itself out of the economic mire are well documented. But it's not Europe's drawn-out efforts to pull itself out of the economic mire are well documented. But it's not alone - Japan has now entered its fifth recession in 15 years. It comes just days before the country's election, which is expected to sweep the current Prime Minister from power. RT talks to James Corbett, editor of the current affairs website The Corbett Report. "Economically speaking, over the past two decades since the bubble popped in late 80s early 90s and for two decades, Japan has been floundering to come up with any sort of way to stimulate the economy, but in the traditional Japanese fashion of not being too risky with anything that they try," he said. So far, the measures to help the Japanese economy remain sound mostly involved monetary stimulation. "...but there is a very big aversion to inflation or anything that could upset the apple-cart on the way to what they hope will be recovery," Corbett explained.
