    Anyway, I made the counter argument. I guess you missed it.
    It's easy to miss a specious argument.

    So...you don't really have any argument at all. Okay. But thanks for your VERY STRONG EMOTIONS on this matter all the same.

    What are you talking about?

    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, you made a mistake concerning the actual argument, throwing up a strawman that no one was really arguing.

    Btw, if you post with my quote I'll know you said something. Just saying you'll more likely get a response.

    The strawman came earlier, and instead of addressing it he used the snarky tactic. And no, I have not run off.

    Ok, point it out if you would be so kind, instead of leaving me to guess. Because I read the entire thread, and I didn't see it. That isn't to say it wasn't there, but I don't see what you are talking about.

    ...and instead of addressing it he used the snarky tactic.
    Oh come on... Now you would never do that would you?

    And no, I have not run off.
    Oh really? Well, leaving the thread 24 hours earlier just when a good debate was taking place, leaving a hanging question, some would say, with the hopes that you could re enter the debate later never having to address the last point made...(that to me is running off) Might be taken as a rather dishonest tactic on your part. Just sayin'
