Comments on: An optimistic vision of Obama’s second term Sat, 03 Jan 2015 16:42:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: BioStudies Thu, 08 Nov 2012 21:12:57 +0000 Bias as usual by the left.

“If Romney had won, his promised tax cuts and willingness to ignore budget deficits would have delivered a big stimulus to the U.S. economy and triggered a potential boom.”

You meant to say willingness to TACKLE the deficit. The guy that this country elected is the one who TOTALLY ignores the deficit to the point that he claims he has reduced it more than any other president in the world! :s

By: tmc Thu, 08 Nov 2012 21:07:17 +0000 GlennNM@, I too appreciate Mr. Keletskys opinions, I think I value Nader Mousavizadeh “Uncertainty is not going away” opinion also posted here on Reuters a bit more based on Bio’s. Though Gordon was quite rude in his ranting, others actually do share his opinion, just not the way he expressed it.

By: GlennNM Thu, 08 Nov 2012 15:32:13 +0000 Really “Gordon2352″? “Stop writing articles about which you know absolutely nothing”? Let’s see, should I listen to a guy like this:

“Anatole Kaletsky is an award-winning journalist and financial economist who has written since 1976 for The Economist, the Financial Times and The Times of London before joining Reuters. His recent book, “Capitalism 4.0,” about the reinvention of global capitalism after the 2008 crisis, was nominated for the BBC’s Samuel Johnson Prize, and has been translated into Chinese, Korean, German and Portuguese. Anatole is also chief economist of GaveKal Dragonomics, a Hong Kong-based group that provides investment analysis to 800 investment institutions around the world.”

Or listen to an obvious Tea Bagging, sore losing Republican who has bought into the Party’s election year distortions and lies?

I think I’ll go with Anatole, and perhaps it is you who should have your meds checked.

You state “That waiting game is now over. U.S. businesses can no longer hope for a new president who will restore the untrammeled free-market environment of George W. Bush. Instead of a theoretical choice between Obama’s new regulations and a free market utopia modeled on Ayn Rand, corporate executives must now choose between adapting to Obama’s policies, including healthcare, going out of business or finding another country with a friendlier business environment.

Once they confront this choice, but most will surely acknowledge that the U.S. remains a relatively attractive place to do business and will simply build the costs of healthcare and taxes into their budgets. They will then switch their attention from politics to business as usual and get on with hiring or investment decisions that make financial sense in this new regulatory environment. If businesses refrain from investment or hiring from now on, this will be for financial reasons, not out of political unease.”

I have news for you.

Multinational corporations have NEVER been motivated by a fear of Obama, and THIS IS business as usual.

THAT is why for decades more than “a few may decide to move to Mexico, Canada or China” and Asia — basically, anywhere but the US — since the “business environment” for them is terrible here.

By “business environment” I mean having to obey what few business laws remain, having to pay US workers a decent wage with benefits, and PAY THEIR TAXES (which are only a fraction of what they used to be a few decades ago).

You need to get your medication adjusted.
