In this interview, Bill Clinton talks about President Obama, the economic crisis, and what he thinks we citizens need to do in addition to being “active, informed voter[s]”. Clinton gets attacked a lot by the Right, which is telling since he’s clearly quite centrist. Moreover, by any measure of prosperity, times were very good under Mr. Clinton’s administration. And despite repudiation by the self-proclaimed character police, the work Mr. Clinton does now through the Clinton Global Initiative is much more important and more indicative of his character than the fact that he got a blowjob in the Oval Office and lied about it when he got caught. Granted, he should not have done that, but really, how important is it? Regardless, I find reassurance in Mr. Clinton’s optimism and belief that President Obama is off to a good start in his response to the economic crisis. If the proof is in the pudding, Bill Clinton is a much better source for opinions on this than the neocon naysayers are.

Enjoy.

  8. If Warren Buffet believes his taxes are too low, he can pay what he thinks is more fair. He doesn’t. Actions speak louder than words. WHat is so hard to understand? We have more government spending than total income earned. That is a government problem….not a tax problem, but either way Warren avoids all of the taxes he can. That is all you need to know.

  18. Within a generation China is likely to replace the US as the biggest market in the world. We from the of the consumer revolution Made in China says everything, economically, about the last decade. Sold in China tells you everything about the next. Recent output figures from China were greeted with concern after the country its lowest GDP growth for three years, although, at 8.1%, it’s magnificent compared to the UK’s double-dip recession. Still, there is much talk among economists about a “hard landing”, a bubble” and “bankrupt banks”. But there is one key fact to remember about the economy in China. It’s that the minimum wage is going up 15% a year, every year, for the next five years. Take a billion workers and give them a 100% pay rise. It changes everything. Within a generation, China is likely to displace the US as the biggest consumer market in the world. At Tianjin the world’s fifth biggest, container ships used to Chinese goods to…

  26. A Galt developer says his decision to build the first home in the small town in three years is an expression of faith that the lean years of the housing crisis are finally over and that the struggling city’s are also turning around. Mike Guttridge prepares to water down a lot in his family’s development in Galt where he’s planning to build the first new house in the southern Sacramento County city since 2009.
