  •  WTF??? (13+ / 0-)

    How on earth is this guy Dean of Columbia Business School?? There is absolutely no evidence that this supply-side Austrian austerity model works or has EVER worked as productive economic policy. In fact, this BS is Exhibit A is how to kill an economy in 6 months. Yet he's Dean of one of the best schools at one to the top universities in the country.

    Does anyone share how depressing that is???

    •  their intelligence is what saddens me (6+ / 0-)

      Because I know he's not an idiot. I know he knows whats happening in the EU right now, what happened in the UK regarding austerity.
      Its the fact that he, and others in high ranking positions can look into the camera, look virtually, into the eyes of people, Americans, who they know are struggling, and simply lie. Period.
      They know what they're saying will make it much worse for those to whom they are presently lying, yet they continue to lie.
      They know more people will be put out of work. They lie on.
      People will lose their homes, not a problem. Just keep lying.
      They know that some of these same people will die, or their children will die if they can't afford health care. They surge ahead with lies. Bound and determined. Not even stopping to breath between lies. No need to reload, the lies flow freely without a stutter.
      How on earth has an entire party been handed over lock stock and barrel to factually challenged zealots, and out and out sociopathic liars?
      We win, they still control the conversation.
      Are we screaming in the forest???

      doesn't believe an economic model can be disproven by real world data. Real world events can only illustrate or confirm the result of thought experiments.

      I've lost my faith in nihilism
