    If the economists and the politicians know so much about economics, why did the global economic meltdown happen to begin with, and why haven't the "experts" fixed in in the last 3+ years?

    I agree with your sentiments but the actual economists had little to do with the policy decisions and actions carried out to get us in this mess.  The Goldman Sachs boys were a big part of this meltdown, at least here in the U.S. (Hank Paulson, Timmy Geithner...), the too-big-to-fail banksters, and corporatists have been a major player during the last several administrations.

    If actual economists had the ear of the president instead of Warren Buffet et al...maybe we could actually start to climb out of the abyss.
