In light of the political whirlwind brought about by the Obama Administration (and to make up for the lack of posting due to my day job), a moment of wisdom and common sense is warranted.
If the Obamaholics really want to get something done, it would behoove them to put down Rules for Radicals and The Audacity of Hope, and pick up Capitalism and Freedom and Free to Choose.
Or, if time to sit down and read is lacking, they should at least go to YouTube and do a search on Milton Friedman.
From Keynes to Krugman, “progressive” economists have and always will be trumped by Friedman. Were he alive today, he would never sign on to such a high-pressured, intimidating sales pitch masquerading as a “stimulus” package that a majority of Americans are now opposing in its current form.
