    WTF does that have to do with percentage rate??? You have no comprehension of what a progressive tax system is supposed to be, do you?

    To be fair though, the third world countries where many of these students come from probably don't impose the sort of onerous hardships Catawba described that come with living in the US.

    Considering the US is 37th in education funding as a percentage of GDP, I would agree there may be up to 36 countries whose students are better prepared for graduate work.

    medicare, for example, is dead in a generation if its budget isn't restructured now

    Giving the Prof a taste of his own medicine. I love it!

    In order do the Prof proper though, you need to throw in a few inane words that have nothing at all to do with the topic at hand, or the links you posted.

    Then you will have the Prof down cold!

    I'm not following what this has to do with Greenspan's acknowledgement of being wrong.

    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.
