ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on political and economic issues related to the U.S. He believes that President Barack Obama's decisions will lead to similar downfall of the country's economy as that of Argentina, if he continues to prefer economic policies against that of Alexander Hamilton, the first treasury secretary. Examining the cause of near-bankruptcy of the Consolidated Edison, he states that similar mentality is on display in the U.S. administration's tax-increase ideas.
