    Francis isn't as much of an expert in economics as his predecessors were in gynecology.

    Politics means controlling the balance of economic and institutional power. Everything else is naming post offices.

      He was trying to get as much of his clergy out of the country before the generals had him join some of his priests in the game of jumping out of an airplane without a parachute over the Atlantic.  This likely cut into the time he had available to learn economics.

      Either that, or he DOES know something about it and based on that came to the conclusion that supply side economics is a fraud.  He has plenty of company among the population of Nobel laureate economists if that's his line of reasoning.

    •  Well, RYAN isn't an economist (5+ / 0-)

      either, just an overgrown fratboy lawyer who still hero-worships Ayn Rand (wh0 was no Blessed Virgin).  But he excoriates Catholics who do use birth control as "Cafeteria Catholics" claiming you can't pick and choose which doctrines you accept--unless, o course following the Church requires you to get off your over-muscled gluteus maximus  muscles and DO something for the poor.  Then it's okay to disagree.

      Ryan is a disgusting gobshite gamnbeen man.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education - sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street. E. B. White
