How Long Before China's Renminbi Becomes Fully Convertible?
As topics go it?s pretty hot and a question frequently asked. Just exactly when the Renminbi(?RMB?), the official name of the currency that was introduced by the Communist People?s Republic of China at the time of its foundation in 1949, becomes fully convertible and freely tradable has vexed the minds [...]


Whoopie GDP
Well, real GDP finally hit a 4 percent growth rate in the second quarter; so, naturally, the Dow ended the day down. This is why I don?t claim to be a forecaster, and, when I?m forced into it, I try to update it often. While I could quibble?for instance, inventory accumulation [...]

What Ronald Reagan Didn't Say About the EITC
I like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). It encourages work and allows millions of low-wage workers and their kids toescape a life of poverty. Democrats support it as a critical part of the safety net. Republicans back it because it rewards work and family. Just last week, House Budget [...]

•  SIPC's Brokerage Account 'Insurance' Scam: Take It from a Comptroller of the Currency
I’ve invited James Smith, former Comptroller of the Currency and former Deputy Under-Secretary of the U.S. Treasury to discuss the Insurance Scam being run by SIPC.  As I’ve discussed in prior columns posted at, this scam puts all brokerage account holders at extreme risk.  Indeed, I strongly recommend every brokerage account holder close her account immediately pending passage of H.R. 3482 and S. 1725.  I also strongly recommend that all SIPC-insured brokerage firms immediately disclose the huge risk to their clients of SIPC “insurance,” specifically that if they withdraw and spend enough of their account balances, they can a) lose any claim to SIPC insurance coverage on their remaining balance and b) also be sued for every penny they legitimately withdrew over the six years proceeding the discovery of fraud in their brokerage account.  To avoid its insurance obligation and sue legitimate brokerage account investors, SIPC need only declare the fraud a Ponzi Scheme, which is easily done and which, as the NY Times, recently reported, are a dime a dozen.  Take It From a Comptroller of the Currency:  Congress Needs to Act Now to Protect Investors from SIPC “Insurance" by James E. Smith On September 25, 2000, eight years before the scams of Bernard Madoff and R. Allen Stanford were uncovered, Gretchen Morgenson (financial journalist for the New York Times) wrote a perceptive column of exacting detail describing the Securities Investor Protection Corporation’s pinched and adversarial practices aimed at favoring the SIPC Fund over protecting innocent customers of failed broker dealers. That column was “dead on” concerning SIPC’s regrettable culture, in which litigation rather than protection is too often the order of the day.
