    Here's his thesis: "The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own.”

    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.

    You are determined not to answer the question, "so what?" So no one succeeds alone. And . . . ? He brings this up, why? C'mon, Boo; show your "non-partisanship." Answer the question.

    And yes, they are communist, and don't have the people pressing them to have helpful regulations. You missed the point.

    And no, derugulation did more to cause the crisis than anything else. And companies fail from time to time, but don't let too much misinformation get inside your ideology.
    It's apparent you're the slave to ideology and ignorant of history. You just used China as an example of what we should fear without beneficent government, when in fact China is an example of what happens when governments control or own markets.

    Do other readers think that a person is losing, or has already lost, a debate when denigration without description is all they offer in response?

    Did you watch the douchenozzle in the video? Rather close to Obama's talking points.

    I offered a description, you chose to ignore in an attempt to degrade me. Maybe you should take your own advice.

    No, you miss the point. They don't have people who can push for regulations. You mistakenly think the two are separate. But regulations largely have a history, and largely promoted by people. Government doesn't come to them on their own. When that si the case, you have China. So, you merely missed the point.

    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, people do succeed because of their own intititive. And they work together to achieve things. This is the point, hence one is not enemy of the other. You do know Romney has said the same things? It has been linked often enough. I didn't fault Romney for it. But you completely ignore it, . . . you partisan.
