    • Is the Fed Losing Control of the Narrative? – Ep. 339
      Fed Surprised No One Today, the Federal Reserve surprised nobody. They raised interest rates by 25 basis points; the 6th rate hike since the Fed began, in December of 2015.  The rate is now between 1.5% and 1.75%, so the midpoint of that is around 1.635. So we’re still significantly below 2%, but I guess […] The post Is the Fed Losing Control of the Narrativ […]

      Tomorrow is the first of the Fed’s 2-day Federal Open Market Committee Meeting, and it’s going to be the first meeting where there is supposed to be a rate hike and a press conference for the new chairman, Jerome Powell.  The markets are pretty much at 100% probability that the Fed is going to raise […] The post Is the March Rate Hike Really a Lock? – Ep. 33 […]

Giant Debt Clock displayed at SBCC west campus

National Debt Clock, $14.3 trillion and counting

Last Thursday (5/12/2011) in front of the library on west campus, SBCC’s Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) put up a giant debt clock display.  Our nation’s share of the debt is roughly $14.3 trillion, and with each number on a board the sign ended up being over 40 feet long!  The display was meant to promote awareness to the students who will likely have the burden of paying off the giant debt load in their future.  In addition to rising awareness, the YAL chapter setup a table and was collecting student signatures for a petition that will be sent to Congresswomen Lois Capps asking her to work on lowering our national debt.

More info on the national debt clock event and the SBCC YAL chapter can be found here.

The Santa Barbara News Press did a story on it here (you must be a registered user to read).
