    because he needed to beat all around the Mulberry bush. Then back around the other way. Then he beat the bush itself and slapped the monkey while he was at it.

    It goes on and on excusing and apologizing for economic conditions and practices and trends he had a major part in setting into motion. Without the decency of an abject apology, either.

    You did not hear me say he is right about anything. He wrote his book to keep himself in the news, a pundit and commentator on economic history. Could lead to a gig on TV or some income on the lecture circuit.

    He never said or did anything right or accurate about America's economy and he never will. He is in it for David Stockman, and doing his very best to sling propaganda around with the best of them.

    What you do not hear from his writing, and will never hear, is the idea of America looking after Americans. It is all about achieving unbelievable economic growth so we can be the greatest, richest nation in the world.

    You see the neocon agenda there, do you not?

    There are tribes of genuinely Stone Age headhunters in Borneo who have the common sense to look after their own people. Americans who value global empire at any price could use some of that common sense.
