Frank Ahrens: The European debt crisis and Wall Street's slump have some worrying about a double-dip recession. Should we be worried?

Frank Ahrens: The Fed Chairman, testifying before Congress right now, has become our de facto Mr. Everything's Going To Be All Right.

Frank Ahrens: The cap isn't catching all the oil, but it's catching a lot. What's next for the company?

Government job creation: Some people think the government could guarantee full employment, if only it wanted to. Hence, we get a lot of proposals that are labeled as "job creation" but is there any evidence government is a "net" (i.e. economy-wide) job creator?
