Bernanke: Recession Will ‘Probably’ End This Year

In a rare interview with Ben Bernanke broadcast Sunday on “60 Minutes,” the Federal Reserve chairman allowed himself to sound slightly more optimistic, although ever so cautiously so, about the possibility that the American economy will pull out of recession soon—perhaps, he said, by the end of this year.

Will Iran Come Out of the Nuclear Closet?

A U.S. official believes that Iran has obtained enough nuclear material to make a bomb. Israel is believed to have the Middle East’s only nuclear arsenal, though it has never acknowledged this. Why does Iran pursue a nuclear bomb? And will Iran come out of the nuclear closet?

Cramer on TheStreet.com TV

Jim Cramer’s Stock Market Manipulation Primer

So, CNBC hyperpundit Jim Cramer was the very picture of contrition during his cringe-tastic appearance on Thursday night’s “Daily Show.” But let’s revisit this moment from 2006—when Cramer brought a much haughtier version of himself to TheStreet.com TV to discuss, among other delightful topics, how to “create a new truth to develop a fiction” whilst in “hedge-fund mode”—shall we?

Jon Stewart’s Not Buying What Jim Cramer’s Selling

In this highly anticipated face-off between Jon Stewart and CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Thursday’s “Daily Show,” Cramer furiously backpedals as he’s zinged repeatedly by a (mostly) courteous but relentless Stewart, who questions whether Cramer isn’t a snake-oil salesman who has supported the myth that there is one unified economic system that works the same for everybody while knowing that’s not the case.

Conservatives ♥ Ayn Rand

What with all this economic turmoil of late, not to mention a suspected socialist in the White House, right-wing pundits like femmebot Michelle Malkin and fellow Fox-friendly cretin Glenn Beck are looking to “author, philosopher and female comb-over pioneer” Ayn Rand for guidance.

‘Daily Show’: Stewart vs. Cramer

Jon Stewart is on a tear these days, taking on the wild world of financial punditry one shouty bald guy at a time. This episode is dedicated to CNBC’s Jim Cramer, who, try as he may to deny it, just seemed to have a thing for Bear Stearns stock—mere days before the company tanked.

Maher Puts His Stamp of Approval on the Post Office

Even while pocketing billions in bailouts, the captains of industry who wrecked the world economy sneer at government. Just imagine, they say, if their businesses were run like the post office. “You mean the place that takes a note in my hand in L.A. on Monday and gives it to my sister in New Jersey on Wednesday for 42 cents?”
