    He says sales are up. It is an easier task when one need not actually make a profit. Billions of taxpayer dollars were given to the unions to make them whole. The unions were given an ownership position ahead of the bondholders.
    Can you explain exactly how you missed it?

We are confident that our Treasury sales will be successful (loan from China), I'm confident that the economy is in recovery. I'm confident that our employment numbers indicate confidence. Confidence, same as a con man. I hope I am making this clear. That is why the Repubs always stated loudly "deficits don't matter." They knew it was about confidence. A game run on confidence. Oh, and keep your knives sharp and your weapons numerous in case your confidence fails, eh?

    Easy, you're making a leap not supported by facts. Who exactly isn't making a profit? Such a business won't stay in business, so I don't accept your position, and it is not an answer to his comment.

    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.

    Unions are supported by their members, not by the government.

    Billions were given to large financial institutions and to the General Motors, both of which deserved to fail or reorganize without government money because of mismanagement. Not one cent was given to unions.
