  •  Also why a "global economy" is a horrible idea (9+ / 0-)

    If political leaders of "developed" nations refuse to practice evidence based economic policy, why should we allow our economic and financial institutions to be dependent on less "developed" nations with even shakier governments?

    The push for the "inevitable" unbridled global economy is just another dodgy scheme cooked up by multi-nationals seeking more pockets to pick.

      I'm a bit more pro-globalisation, pro-free trade than the average person on this site. I'm not rabidly in favour of either, but I'm not completely opposed to them either. But at the end of the day, globalisation beyond what we already have won't work at all until politicians in Washington or Westminster or Brussels or wherever abandon these stupid economic ideas like "trickle-down" and the like that they cling to so desperately.
