';




by Ellen Brown, Web of Debt

To stimulate the economy, create new jobs, and generate new GDP requires an injection of new money. Borrowing from the bond markets or off-balance-sheet in public/private partnerships won't do it. If Congress won't issue money directly, it should borrow from banks, which create money on their books when they make loans.

Current Weather Outlook

Written by

Global Warming takes a break at least for CONUS as cold is the forecast for the Northern Tier of CONUS (and points North). It first looked like this would be a meridional pattern bringing record cold down to the Southwest but the Jet Stream turned zonal in the nick of time.

The more important (because of the volatility in the weekly reported claims and seasonality errors in adjusting the data) 4 week moving average moved from 251,500 (reported last week as 251,500) to 252,500.
