    They truly are rolling back not just the Great Society, but the New Deal.

    The thought is that major depressions can be avoided in future because now we of course now how to do monetary policy whereas the central banks in the '30's didn't and made a muck of things.

    Since our elites now know how to avoid crashes and economic downturns which cause people to go hungry, homeless and sick, it's ok for the robber baron age to return. Ask your great great parents, after all - life was great in 1890 for the working class!

    Again, for the benefit of those over whose head devil's advocacy goes, this is not my opinion, but a standard opinion of, say, the editorial staff of The Economist.

    Freedom is merely privilege extended unless enjoyed by one and all -9.50, -5.74

      ... its fine to point out that Lush Rimbaugh has said something obscene and grotesque, but working through how the corporatist Conventional Wisdom is argued in, eg, the Economist, and what errors of omission are repeatedly made along the way in the course of that argument is also very important.
