    Obviously, as I expected you to address the point made.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    We don't, we hate companies who make a profit and then refuse to share that profit with the workers who make sure the company keeps making profits!

    OK, so you couldn't answer and tried a personal attack. That didn't work, so now you throw up a strawman? You're 0 for 2. Going for a strike out?

    I hate companies that make a profit and then use that money to exert political pressure so that they don't have to pay a reasonable rate of taxes, thereby reducing the tax revenue and leading to drastic cuts in necessary programs and increased public debt.

    I also hate people who pretend that isn't exactly what this is all about and that the wealthiest in this country aren't working to divide and destroy the middle class.

    All the while saying that is they make more money it means more jobs, even as they are profitting without providing more jobs. Which makes their argument a bit of a lie.

    if corporations can obtain sufficient supplies of the commodity known as labor without paying more for it WHY SHOULD THEY?

    the competition overseas will not

    Populist psychobabble, as a "libertarian" (LOL) why do you support the government taking more private property? but its the rich lefties who are trying to destroy the middle class by addicting them to handouts and sapping their ambition. its called creating more voters

    Oh, they will eventually provide more jobs. They will just be much lower paying jobs. Day by day people are going to wake up and realize they have allowed the wealthiest Americans reduce their wages so they can't even afford the products and services of the companies for which they work, let alone save for retirement or put money aside for health care.
