    Go tell Zimbabwe and Greece about that.

    If you think pushing green pieces of paper around makes people richer, there is little help for you. People get richer though mining, growing, or manufacturing stuff, that's basically it.

    •  and that's the problem isn't it ? (0+ / 0-)

      much fewer people are "richer though mining, growing, or manufacturing stuff" because the capitalists are driving down wages and poisoning the environment.

      and yet there's that many more people that need work.  people are cheap and the free market answer to that is to let them starve, especially if they are on the wrong side of the gaussian.

      and the magical free market fairies are working overtime to make that problem worse, not better.

      so it's all very nice to question keynesiasm and invoke Greece as a boogeyman, but I don't see you offering any solution.

      and we're in the midst of capitalism unleashed and it's pretty much f*cking us all over.

      so how are you going to make things better when you're king Sparhawk ?
