The Economic Situation (From Mercatus Center – Bruce Yandle)


The US Economy has been stagnating since March. This slowdown in growth is associated with faster money printing presses in Europe and falling economic growth in China and Asia. It is also a result of bad monetary policy from the Federal Reserve. There should be little doubt that the regulations put on the economy by the government would produce these negative results as history has shown most regulations tend to do this.

1,000 People a Day: Why Red States Are Getting Richer and Blue States Poorer


Every day in America the 50 states compete against each other for people, jobs, investment capital, and overall prosperity. This interstate competition is economically healthy because it forces governors and legislators to adopt fiscal and regulatory policies that maximize job opportunities and prosperity for their citizens. Right-to-work laws and low income taxes are the two policies that matter most in terms of the prosperity of states. If every state were to adopt the pro-growth policies recommended in this study, each state and the nation as a whole would be better off.

The Hudsucker Proxy Shows the Value of a Price-Coordinated System


Market prices are signals that help people figure out what economic activity is valuable to society and what isn’t. The film The Hudsucker Proxy helps us to see the point, explains Andrew Heaton in the latest edition of EconPop:

Making the New Normal Meaningful


The strategies that raise a country from poor to middle-income status will not work to raise it from middle-income to rich. Poor countries have very different capital stock, labor productivity, land utilization, and capacity for innovation than middle-income countries. Unfortunately, old policies seem politically easy. Many middle-income countries try to become rich by sticking to a development model that no longer works. This is the middle-income trap, and it makes the concept of “the new economic normal” in China a very valuable one. If it is more than a slogan, the new economic normal can help China escape the middle-income trap. It must feature policies that: 1. Increase competition, not cooperation, in the corporate sector. 2. Give farmers sharper rights to their land, as the original reforms did in 1978. 3. Rapidly integrate labor markets, so a shrinking workforce is more productive. 4. Dramatically slow or halt the accumulation of debt to avoid stagnation.

Free To Prosper: A Pro-Growth Agenda for the 114th Congress

With the start of the 114th Congress comes a fresh opportunity to address the challenges created by a broken government. The Competitive Enterprise Institute’s top policy proposals for the 114th Congress center on substantive regulatory reforms needed to improve America’s economic health. In 2014 alone, 3,541 new regulations hit the books, and the burden is constantly growing. If federal regulations were a country, their cost would amount to the world’s 10th largest economy. In addition, CEI recommends that Congress continue to conduct fundamental oversight to protect Americans from executive overreach. Over the last six years, federal agencies have sought to usurp power from the legislative branch. Congress has a responsibility to demand honesty and accountability from our leaders and defend the rule of law.

Competitive Fee Structure


… but if you are looking for the cheapest fees, or obsessing about your correct pronouns or global warming/white privilege B.S., or unable to make up your mind as to whether you are a man or a woman, you would be so much happier working with someone else…

… in addition, due to an extremely hectic schedule, only serious inquiries may expect a response …

New tax clients are expected to provide copies of their last 3 years of tax returns and provide permission to contact prior accountant to resolve any issues, if necessary.


Regretfully, I am unable to accept new clients who have unfiled prior-year’s tax returns, who are not current with all prior tax obligations, are involved in any marijuana-related business ventures, use marijuana, have any income from gambling, are experiencing extreme financial difficulties, are personal-injury attorneys or copyright or patent trolls. Newly formed businesses are frowned upon as well.


Though not required, supporters of President Donald J. Trump, the National Rifle Association & clients who are ethical, hard-working, cheerful, optimistic and NOT easily offended are generally preferred.





Due to the alleged gang activity and drug dealing at the nearby Chelsea Manor Apts. & 7-11 Convenience Store, I would personally recommend "packing some heat" while in this area (and perhaps Penn Square Mall as well). Some believe the OKC Police Dept. has become wussified and are too intimidated to confront these gangbangers and put them behind bars where they rightfully belong. "Talk on the Street" seems to be that the wussification emanates from an extremely weak & naive Mayor who purportedly suffers from a severe case of "Low T," a weak City Manager, a new, effeminate-looking Police Chief, who refuses to enforce our nation's immigration laws & a Ward 6 Council Girl who took her Oath Of Office using a book on Marxism.
