    Why should anyone be unemployed for over two damned years?!!! This is crazy. Obama can't spark the economy using Keynesian methods because they don't work. Plain and simple.

    I never questioned official statistics like inflation rate, unemployment and the like under Bush.

    I didn't ask you what the chart says it got the numbers from, I asked where YOU got the chart from. You know this and still refuse to cite your source, so I am reporting it as a violation.

    Your share? What makes you believe that you are entitled to ANY earnings of another?

    I said "our" share, not my share. I realize that "ours" is a word that rightwingers have trouble with, but it's not honest to put words in my mouth

    Cotton is up 132 percent, Agricultural raw materials up 39 percent, Oil up 21 percent. Coal up 36 percent & Metals up 57 percent, Coffee up 70 percent, as well as Wheat up 62 percent, Beef up 39 percent, Fish up 31 percent. Hard logs are up 19 percent, Soft logs up 27 percent. Rubber is also up 79 percent. Wool is up at over 57 percent. Fertilizer is up to 39 percent. Soy beans up 42 percent. Corn is up 58 percent, and Silver up 60 percent; Industrial Inputs Price Index up 51 percent. Commodity Food Price Index up 30 percent. Commodity Fuel Price Index up 20 percent. Overall Commodity Price Index up 20 percent.

    Seeing this is where most companies get their raw materials from I really quite confused .. I guess we need to bow down to the companies making these products that have only increased prices an average of 1.6 % over the last year .. and absorbing all those price increases so we the consumer aren't faced with higher prices ..

    Like I said j, you always back business over working folk. Just saying . . . .

    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.

    No, it's not an "anecdotal question". It's a question with a factual answer, and "statistics" is not the plural of "anecdote"
