God, that’s a stupid response. Why not just say “I believe what I choose to believe, and if you say anything I don’t agree with, I’ll just put my fingers in my ears.”

There is precisely nothing in what I posted to you that is controversial among economists. As stated, the analysis of the Great Depression comes from Milton Friedman, who won a Nobel Prize in part for that research. The analysis of WW1 and the runup to Hitler and WW2 comes from, as I pointed out, the Ahamed book which won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for history.

So, lessseee………Milton Friedman with his Nobel and an Pulitzer Prize award winning historian on THIS side of the debate……..some cynic named “Mateo D” on THAT side of the debate.

Hmmmmmm. Gotta choose a side………

Think I’ll take the side of the experts.

And…..btw……it’s pretty obvious from the THIS side of the debate that the politicians aren’t operating in the best interests of the citizen, as you seem to believe. Hope you figure that out before it’s too late.

In the meantime, don’t bend over.
