Ya know, a lot of people ask me “What is HITRECORD?” So, I made this new video to explain what it is & how you can contribute to our collaborative productions. You can create an account HERE

HITRECORD is different than your typical Hollywood production company. Anyone with the Internet can contribute to our collaborative projects & this website is where we come to make things together, like Short Films, Books, Music, Art, and our latest & greatest production - our television show:HITRECORD ON TV.

You can contribute your Video, Image, Text, or Audio RECords to any of the collaborations we’re working on, or you can start your own collaboration on the site.

And if your work gets used in a money-making production, we pay you for it. For their work in 2013, the community is receiving a grand total of $737,175.09.

So, thanks for stopping by. Hope you stick around, I’d love to work with you. Are you RECording?

Thanks again <3

How Europe is incubating an even bigger debt crisis by letting deflation take root

It is hard to judge at what point deflation becomes embedded in the system. Factory gate prices have been slipping since mid-2012. The pace quickened to minus 1.7% in February, the steepest decline since the Lehman crisis. But this time it is not the one-off effect of a financial crash. It is chronic and insidious.
Prof Luis Garicano from the London School of Economics said the economic models used to predict inflation seem to be breaking down. “They need to take very serious action,” he said.
Bank of America says its “inflation surprise” index keeps ratcheting lower as one shock after another hits, while its gauge of “deflation vulnerability” has been flashing red for most EMU countries. The effect is deeply corrosive, even if the region never reaches technical deflation.

Full Story: Financial Post

A few days ago I debated Larry Kudlow and Steven Moore, both of whom said President Obama has been bad for American business. The truth is the opposite. He’s one of the best presidents American business has ever had. Consider: (1) During his five years in office, after-tax corporate profits have averaged 9.2 percent of the economy, the highest since the 1920s. (2) Since he’s been president, the average annual growth in profits has been the highest in a century. (3) Under him, the stock market has surged 133 percent, a near record. So why does doesn’t corporate America love Obama? Which raises an more basic issue. Out of the 13 presidents since 1929, only two others have presided over a larger total increase in stock market values than has Obama – Franklin D. Roosevelt and Bill Clinton. So why doesn’t corporate America love Democratic presidents?
