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.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... 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."
-- Adam Smith
i dont mind him trying to beat republican obstructionism with executive orders.
he was elected to do things,
not just complain about republicans not letting him do things.
its actually sort of a relief that he had some sort of idea.
although if hed had all his ducks in a row the first 2 years,
he wouldnt have to scramble for a way to get around the republicans now.
