    I actually just started reading this very book.  Now I'm looking forward to finishing it.

      However, tomorrow I may disappoint you, as I'll offer some criticisms of their theory.  The criticisms are less about what they include than what they omit: any mention of extrinsic conditions that have changed the U.S. economy since 1970.  I agree with most of their ideas, but I disagree with their tacit conclusion that if we reintroduce the Keynesian economics that worked so well in the post-World War II era, we'll see the same results.  We're just not holding the same cards we held then.

      Good morning! ::huggggggggggs::

        I, for one, am just glad to see the Chicago Sect being exposed as premised on faulty assumptions.  Especially when there are so many things in our economy that can only be explained by their innovators assuming irrational behavior on the part of consumers.
