    Better Stewart than Beck or Oberman.

    But I don't think that is what he is saying.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think Jon Stewart and Dennis Miller are secret lovers.

    I always thought Dennis Miller had some secret fetish fantasy where he got to be in an gangbang with Solzhenitsyn, Orwell, Tolstoy, and Jane Austen.

    Seems you have quite the fetish fantasy yourself.

    Uh no. Revenue =/= Profit.

    Furthermore, the issue of reserve funds distorts the actual income they may be making. For instance, Microsoft can put away $500 million for software warranty costs that it really knows will only cost $200 million. They just took of $300 million from pre-tax net income. So firms can be "losing" money and still be profitable.

    That depends how we define made a profit. Are we including reserve accounts? How about one time charges that are presented as outflows due to ability to determine timeliness and amount but haven't actually been paid? How about stock buy backs?

    A firm can make a huge profit but report a loss based on where they put the money and what they recognize based on GAAP.

    Refundable credits are a way a company can pay nothing and get a refund.

    That's not a loss, it's a deduction.
    Actually it's both. Net Operating Loss deduction. Either a carryback or carryfoward of current year or prior year losses. So it is a loss, but it's also a deduction.
