  •  Ridiculously simplistic. (5+ / 0-)

    I could make arguments for and against every single one of those 'questions' based on the axioms you start with.

    Unemployment?  Unemployment where?  In the US?  Around the world?  Sure, allowing offshoring makes employment far cheaper, so for the same money, an employer could hire anywhere from double to a dozen times more workers for the same money.  So 'free trade' leads to far more employment - in countries where people work for pennies.

    His assumptions that people disagreeing with him are 'dumber' is ludicrous.  He makes nuanceless statements that simply aren't capable of having judgements made about them unless you include other information, and you will tend to bias that other information to your ideologies.  

    Standard of living? 30 years ago, we didn't have an obesity or diabetic epidemic ravaging the nation.  A single worker could keep a family fed and housed, where now it takes two to do the same.  Sure there are more cheap plastic toys, big deal.

    The man is simply ludicrous.
