    You want to compare the recession in 2008 with the one in the 30's? What does that have to do with anything today?

    Now that would always help.

    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.

    Opinionated drivel. Credit markets have lost faith in Europe's ability to repay their liabilities. It seems you are the one who would love to see the U.S. put into a fiscal position similar to Europe.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I see. What I posted applies to most of the country, but not to where you are .

    Was your town's economy, then, being propped up by federal money?

    Deflationary recessions caused by financial panic and deleveraging are the hardest to recover from (ask the Japanese).

    but he still doesn't have a competent and functional Congress, nor did he then. Anyway, total control? Hardly. Not unless you think Democrats all vote in lockstep.

    I feel embarrassed for you every time you emerge in these type of threads.

    I think this is evidence of memory loss. I was responding to your post. In my opinion there is something fundamentally wrong with you.
