    We can all agree that the War in Iraq, now considered a conflict by some Americans, is the biggest plague of the Bush Administration. We all know that the nation faces a difficult Economic crisis, which has been addressed by the stimulus package that was signed by President Obama. However, this economic recession is not the only issue facing the Obama Administration. We must remember that, even in our difficult time at home, our soldiers are still being sent overseas to Iraq to deal with the situation there.

    Given all of the difficulties that we have faced in our nation, when will President Obama deal with the situation in Iraq? He had promised a 16-month withdrawal from the nation, but even in the intense political media outlets, Obama has not yet addressed the issue with the Iraq War. When is Iraq scheduled with his administration? When will Obama answer the question of Iraq?

    As always, I invite Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Liberals, and Centrists to respond.

    an economic recession has developed in the U.S. economy and the Federal Reserve Board needs to take several actions to prevent further declines in the economy.
    What actions should the Fed takes and how the U.S. Treasury can assist the Fed in its effort?

    Business inflation has come down from 3.5 percent a year ago to 1.5 percent!!

    U.S. household net worth just scored a new record high of $58.6 trillion, with financial asset gains outpacing the drop in real estate values!!

    Please grade my TOEFL essay, out of 5. I’m taking the test in 5 days and I’m a bit nervous…XD

    The prompt: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Learning about the past has no value for the present.

    A sage once said, “Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.” It is evident that the recent unfortunate events that have occurred is not due to new problems but merely a replay of past problems—problems which have been allowed to occur once again. I believe that learning about the past holds ineffable value to the present society.

    First of all, history’s repeating of itself is an obvious reason to learn about history in order to learn about the present. For example, recessions occur every now and then. The Great Depression in the 1930’s is a precedent for the current economic recession. By learning how we could have dealt with the Great Depression in our past generations, we can be assured that our own generation will not undergo a recession in the similarly devastating magnitude. Therefore, familiarizing yourself with history is the best method to understand how to face present problems and decisions.

    Secondly, because the past is directly correlated to how present conditions became so, learning about the past cultures and customs can help you learn about the present. To illustrate my reasoning, I will invoke the diverse cultures of Taiwan to support my beliefs. There is a vast culture diversity in Taiwan, brought about by the influx of fleeing Chinese Nationalists, the influence exerted by the Japanese when they were in control of the island and the aboriginal population which primarily inhabited the island. To learn about the history of Taiwan can be channeled to learning about the politics, stereotypes, and social functions of Taiwan today.

    Although the past, technically, cannot become the present and, therefore, will only have a margin of influence over the modern world, our past explains why a certain period in time and place is the way it is. To put it simply, there can be no present without the past. Our past is the foundation of our present and future which must be regarded the highest above all three.

    Please grade my essay out of 5.

    And if any of this information is helpful: English is indeed my second language, but I’ve been living in Canada for 6 years but am still forced to take the TOEFL… sad isn’t it…

    Well, thanks!

    At a debate on Thursday of Republican presidential contenders, the first question posed was on the “R” word.

    New Hampshire primary winner John McCain expects a recession will be avoided; Mitt Romney thinks one could happen; Mike Huckabee, winner in last week’s Iowa caucuses, says he hopes it won’t but sees factors that could trigger one; Rudy Giuliani says one is possible, and Fred Thompson says “nobody knows.”

    Long-shot candidate Ron Paul of Texas says recession is inevitable for an economy with a housing market in a “depression

    Continued unrest in the Middle-East
    China’s Military build-up
    Russia flexing its muscle
    Pakistan/India conflict

    and thats the reason the US economy is in such a bad shape.
    But how can that be when most of that money was spent “inside” the USA on US made goods and services?–It should have stimulated the economy in a way like a sort of new deal plan.

    I am an experienced professional in my field, with excellent credentials and a good C.V. The jobs for which I am applying are very well suited to me, not outside of my capability and are applied for with a professional approach.

    Thing is I am hearing absolutely nothing in return! Not a call, email or acknowledgement of any kind!

    Over the 12 years in which I have been in employment, I have seen first hand the massive influx of recruitment agencies and am fully aware that their response level can be poor. I’ve always gone by the rule of no news = no news but this time around things are considerably worse.

    I realise we are in recession, but I can’t get my head around why these agencies are receiving a C.V from a guy who is clearly qualified and an excellent candidate for the job, but choosing not to follow it up. Can anyone (ideally from a recruitment agency) shed some light on this? Do you think my email/ application is even being looked at?

    All I can think of is that they are being literally flooded with applications. If this is the case, what advice can I use to make mine get noticed, when all I have potentially have is a subject line?

    I am lucky enough to be in a secure job, but if I was sat at home waiting for these responses I would be going out of my mind!!
    Just to add, I work in the field of Quality Assurance, Environmental Management and Health and Safety

    What happens if they agree on something a few weeks later? I don’t even see what the big deal is.

    According to John Maynard Keynes (Creator of Keynesian Economics), the money in the stimulus should have been spent right away, on businesses and the consumer. The stimulus itself, should have been for the consumer. That means you and i would have gotten checks of $2833.33 dollars, from the $850 Billion dollar stimulus. Did that happen? NO.
    ($850 Billion divided by 300 million Americans = $2833.33)

    Did he spend the money right away, like Keynes suggested? NO.

    Was the money spent on the consumer? NO.

    Was the money spent on businesses? NO.

    Did the stimulus buy goods from businesses to increase demand and employment? NO. The Stimulus Package 2009 (PDF) Read the Stimulus FACTS

    This is no real “stimulus”. It is a sham, it isn’t working liberals…

    GDP Growth? Stock Market? GDP is up mainly because of government spending. GDP calculates government spending – this is Econ 101 libbies. Stock Market? The corporations you hate are doing well with the bailout money – too bad they lost almost everything they gained last week.

    Unemployment is still climbing, production is down, the federal deficit has increased by 217% (from $454.8 Billion to $1.45 Trillion.), monetary growth is out of control, Obama wants to lower interest rates (which helped cause the recession), and consumer confidence is down. Inflation is coming and i bet you a tax hike is also coming.

    How are things getting better?
    lol, John how has the stimulus worked? I’m using Keynesian, liberal rhetoric to defeat the stimulus.

    What are some things that will determine when it is over?

    As rapidly as we collapsed, will we see such a quick rebound in employment and wages?

    Was this just a natural part of inflation? I.e. should we expect to never be able to purchase goods and services with pre-recession ease? What I mean is, I’ve noticed income to cost of living seemed better in the past and worse today. We have more “things” we need and can buy and they are more expensive. For instance my father made about as much as I am making today, in the 70’s. I garuntee that went farther then or so he has indirectly told me when recalling his tuition rates rent and car costs.

    Is this another thing that widens the gap between prolitariate(spelling?) and bourgeios(spelling?)?

    Michael Moore is making a movie about Capitalism, saying that it’s the reason why we’re in this economic recession. I’ve heard a lot of Americans tell me that Capitalism is flat out pure evil, greed, and needs to be done away with. Is Capitalism really the reason why we’re in this economic mess?

    With the economic recession, have rates for return on investment – specifically GIC rates – increased or decreased? Why would this happen?
    I have noticed that the rates are somewhere between 10 and 15% on average. Is this accurate?
