You’re probably accustomed to measuring the progress of your investments, and the overall condition of the investment world, by checking on indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. And since these types of benchmarks focus almost exclusively on American companies, you might get the idea that the best investments are located right here in the United States. But that impression would be false — because there is, literally, a world of investment opportunities beyond the U.S. borders.

When the federal government is low on cash to pay its bills, Congress can authorize the government to borrow money to meet its expenses. The limits to this borrowing — the debt ceiling — are raised periodically. Currently, members of Congress want to see measures put in place to reduce government spending and our national deficit before they agree to raise the limits again. These issues are still on the table, but a recent vote passed legislation to allow more borrowing until May.

Another paranoid, delusional letter to the editor (“President Obama’s evil agenda,” by Lawrence J. McLennan III, AFN, Jan. 9) was a comedic recital of untruths and hyperbole without a single fact to back them up, but plenty of bombastic opinions masquerading as truth.

You can’t fix stupid, but you can fix ignorant or, perhaps, political insanity.
With the re-election of Barack Obama, we witnessed the driving of the last nail into the coffin of the United States of America. We have allowed the “takers” of this country to take control. This all began with Franklin Roosevelt and will end with Barack Obama.
We’re battle worn. The past two years of campaigns were no less hostile than Hurricane Sandy. Election pundits tell us we’re a nation divided and stuck in this place. All the while, the critical mass of the big government crowd has taken control. We’ve been told this day would come, and it has.
If the federal government was meant to create jobs, it would have created a surplus of them by now, and unemployment would be far below 7.8 percent — considering the exorbitant amount of money the Obama administration has, as it says, “invested” to do so.
Government’s size affects its budget requirements. Budgets set revenue requirements. Ever increasing revenue requirements force new tax increases. New taxes reduce taxpayer purchasing power, which causes unemployment and business failure. Unemployment and business failures cause larger demands on our governmental social spending, which causes higher taxes, which causes... Well; you get the idea... more unemployment?
Government cannot spend unless and until it has taken the earnings of the makers. That taking occurs by way of taxation, printing, and/or borrowing. Printing, aka “Quantitative Easing,” waters down purchasing power. Borrowing requires us to pay interest and principal. Each of government’s means of getting money reduces taxpayer purchasing power, and that reduces prosperity for all, and that reduction kills jobs.
