BEIJING -- As the current global financial crisis exposes the inherent vulnerabilities and risks in the existing international monetary system, debates on creating a super-sovereign reserve currency are getting heated. Voicing his opinion, Zhou Xiaochuan, China's central bank governor, said in an article published Monday that a new super-sovereign reserve currency should replace national reserve currencies as the backbone of the global monetary system.

To operate successfully, they need to inspire confidence, to provide sufficient liquidity for fluctuating levels of trade and to provide means by which global imbalances can be corrected.

as someone in his position is probably allowed to be. That’s not surprising. The economy is not performing at as it should at this stage of a “recovery.” The most visible reason why Ben is a borderline bear is because the Obama administration attempted to turn things around with an FDR-like “stimulus” instead of what has historically worked in both Democratic and Republican administrations when tried: tax cuts, tax simplification, and regulatory reform. After tax cuts first proposed by John F. Kennedy in 1961 became law in early 196 4, the economy boomed.

Is Ukraine finally getting serious about reform?
Desperate to unlock a new $14.9bn International Monetary Fund aid package, cash-strapped Ukraine moved fast this week to cut its budget deficit and adopt reforms. Still struggling to crawl out of a deep recession that saw gross domestic product plunge 15 per cent during last year’s global crisis, Kiev was pushed into action by tough-talking Fund officials. MPs and bureaucrats are now working on everything from budget deficit cuts to laws on liberalising the gas market. But Ukraine has a record of promising reforms which don’t get implemented. The big test will come when president Viktor Yanukovich has to sell his ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Reform Must Ensure Stability of Financial System
Washington — Focusing supervision too narrowly on the safety and soundness of individual financial institutions can blind regulators to emerging threats to financial stability that cut across many companies or markets, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says. That means that a critical building block for success in financial supervision is a requirement that all financial institutions considered “too big to fail” be subjected to consolidated supervision, Bernanke says. It means that one regulator must be responsible and able to review the full range of activities of such institutions, he added. “Before the recent financial ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Why would abolishing the Federal income tax be a bad idea?
Look at how much money the personal income tax brings in. Look at the annual budget, and cut it by the amount of money that would be lost when the personal income tax is taken away. Make sure the cuts are something that have support across the board. If you can’t or won’t do that, then all this talk about eliminating income tax is just so much empty blather. dude eliminating the federal income tax is a terrible idea. yeah we pay a lot of different taxes like sales etc, but a lot of it does not go to the federal government. I don’t mind replacing the federal income tax with a different type of tax. But ...
