    They were sucking up the presentation which was about nothing....and the speaker said he was a U of Chicago Grad who loved Friedmann! For Jesus H. Christ!
    The fact that he flipped so fast through the slides should have been a signal!

      naturally we should be listening to them about how to deal with the aftermath.

      Honestly, this is what leaves me so profoundly depressed about America. In the aftermath of the Great Depression, when Wall Street speculators destroyed the world economy, at least our political system was able to gradually change course and undo the damage. This time around the remaining controls that weren't deregulated out of existence prevented the crash from being quite so catastrophic, but our politics/governance has been so thoroughly captured by the plutocrats and banksters who caused it that nothing is changing, except for the worse.

      We're screwed.
