<Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it … and we’ve known that for a long time. <>>
" The economy was collapsing, and try as they might, the policy makers only exaserbated the problem. Yet people continued to believe in the government they had not elected due to fraud and bribes from corporations. Only a few dozen homeless people in each city made any noise, and those movements never gained any traction. We would like to note here there was a blog called "Zero Hedge" that did well to predict the coming @#$%pacalypse, but it appeared to be only mainstream as far as trading ideas went. It's culture never fully caught on to the status quo...."

I'm only here coz my flux capacitor is broken.
As an Austrian economist, you just have to laugh!
Reality is that every dollar the the government borrows to spend on government consumption is a dollar that would have been borrowed by businesses to purchase plants and equipment which is the real source of growth.
<So the threshold is not 90% its 0%. <Empiricism is totally useless in a world where variables are interrelated, parameters and interrelationships change, and key variables are un-measurable expectations.>>
OhioChessFan: <A search for the Holy Grail has a better chance of success than an accurate measuring of crowding out. <Even if the economists could figure it out, the politicians would mess it up.>> Yep!
In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame; two is a law firm and three or more is a government.
<The trouble with being a cynic these days is it is so much work to keep up. <>>
<I hate being late, but I'm so good at it.>

200 Billion dollars on crap that will end up in the landfills 3 months from now. I would have said "end up off the shores of New Jersey but they're all filled up and polluted so now it all gets hauled down and buried in Kentucky.
Humans are so freaking stupid and gullible. Yeah, and how about that <Santa Claus> that you push on your kids? Invented by Coke in the 30's he was. Thats why he's dressed in red and white.
Christ's B-day? Sure! That will get you out and spending what you dont have on things you dont need, for sure. After all, the baby Jesus sure could use all that gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
