U.S. economist and author of ‘The New Golden Age’, Ravi Batra, says he believes that "There is something fundamentally wrong with the American economy" which does not let its huge deficit decrease.
Batra says none of the plans proposed by Republicans and Democrats will be a solution to the American deficit crisis. But he added that the Republican plan would even "increase the deficit rather than decrease it."
In an interview with Press TV's U.S. Desk, he criticized the latter plan as a "political document which is not serious in any way”.

Prophet of Boom (and Bust)

The worst economic cycle in more than half a century has everyone from struggling homeowners to former Federal Reserve chairmen shaking their heads in disbelief. Jobs are disappearing, retail sales are in the toilet, bankruptcies of major companies are a daily occurrence, and an unprecedented, massive government bailout has failed thus far to unfreeze the credit system that is the lifeblood of U.S. capitalism.
Sister Nirainjana has been invited by the founding member of Consumers for Peace, Nick Mottern, to speak at a People's Bailout Rally on Saturday, December 13th at 12 noon in White Plains, NY. He has asked her to speak about how Prout principles relate to the current economic crisis:
This Saturday, Dec. 13 is the day of the “People’s Bailout March and Rally,”
starting at noon at the fountain in White Plains at the intersection

SMU economics professor and best-selling author Ravi Batra doesn't stay quiet when he smells a rat.
When Batra talks, alarms often go off.
And, just after Batra finished telling a government class that President-elect Barack Obama won’t be able to turn around the economy for at least three years, the fire alarms at Eastfield College went off early Tuesday morning.
For Eastfield students, it was the second day in a row that fire alarms had sounded.
For Batra’s students, alarms are nothing new.
