    You either believe in free markets or you believe it is government’s job to manage the economy. Microeconomics is the study of free markets, macroeconomics is the study of how to interfere in free markets. Microeconomics is the only real economics; macroeconomics is an excuse for constantly expanding government. Bad choice, Arlo.

    Yes, Arlo, looking at the big picture, things are going downhill. It’s frustrating, but at least you’re still on your feet.

    You don’t have to chose between the two. In fact, a blend of both works well. It doesn’t have to be constantly expanding. Everything in moderation…..a just right size government works for me. Somethings just have to be done by government..

    There is not such thing as a free market, it is an “ideal” and one that might not actually work all that well in reality anyways. Most absolutes sound great to the proponents of such, but end up causing much more harm then good.

    The legacy of 30 years of tax cuts and deregulation. The top 1% of Americans now control 40% of the nation’s wealth. What used to be called “middle class”? They’ve got nothing for you, and want to end your Medicare to fund more tax cuts.

    Because the Bush tax cuts have done such a great job of creating jobs over the last 10 years, right?

    Corporate/Republican math: Appliance company exports 500 well paying factory jobs to China + Walmart opening on the site hiring 600 minimum wage workers = Gain of 100 jobs + bonus for CEO of appliance company.

    Plus bonus for CEO of credit card company when more consumers have ever higher debt resulting in more interest for said credit card company and thus more profits for the select few who own stock.

    It’s amazing how stupidly people will behave when faced with the choice of immediate, short-lived gains OR eventual, long-lived gains. Thus we have managers who can get good results for a quarter or two but then bankrupt the company over the next couple of years.

    As Heinlein once pointed out, a managed economy is a great thing; for the managers. The Soviet Union had a managed economy and look what happened to it: it fell apart when its (managed) economy collapsed because it couldn’t manage to feed itself. Now, of course, it’s a kleptocracy, (government by thieves) but at least it’s not on the edge of starvation.
