    That was genuinely interesting. His knowledge of US economic history and the moving sands of economic theory is interesting. I found especially the first 10 minutes to be very informative.

    The only draconian radical approach to running gov. is to give govt. more money to waste.
    400 Billion dollars a year on waste fraud and abuse with absolutely no accountability.
    Amtrack loses hundreds of millions of dollars a year.Whats goverment solution? More trains to nowhere. Cal to Vegas which is a boondoggle to start with full hack payoffs and graft.Bigdig on steroids.
    You can include the military too.
    bambicare
    80 redundant social programs.
    And you demonize the people who make money and not the people who waste money.
    on and on and on and on the mismangment of taxpayer money never ends, and you want what???? More taxes.

    Who are these 400 unnamed economists???

    Since 1990 there have been 34 winners of the Nobel Prize for Economics from the US, using "Rovian" logic, 29 agree with Obama..

    There are currently about 16,000 economists in America, so does that mean about 15,500 agree with Obama.. if you use super pac logic it does.

    What about the 29 other nobel prize winnners in Economics since 1990?? Is it safe to assume that they agree with Obama??

    Who are the 400, is it safe to assume that the other 15,000 economists are supporting Obama???..

    Is any of this done randomly, or are they "cherry picked" for their point of view??..

    Not going to count.. but that is way short of the majority of all of the economists in this country.. as there about 16,000... do we assume that the rest are for Obama???..

    I'll admit, I was laughing my ass off when I saw Phil Gramm's name on that list.

    The Nobel Prize is worthless.
