    Oil is an international commodity. Drilling it here has no bearing on it being used here at ALL.

    Maybe the private sector isn't investing because the private sector is thinking either in terms of short term returns or in terms of minimal investments that bring maximum returns---------------What used to be recognized as a banana republic mentality, before the conservative revolution of the last 35 years turned everyone into mushminds..................

    Exploration that causes more harm than good. And frankly, we'd import even if we did exploration here, as we send most of our oil out now and don't use it domestically, for example. Wind, bio fuels, and so are better ares for energy development domestically.

    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, the market has totally changed. In the fields of imaging making, computer programing basically any professional field we are competing against a globalized market. And now with the advent of 3-d printing industry china is going to have to compete against that.

    It is not as simple as that. Safeguards are there for a reason.

    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.

    If employers were provided some sort of incentive--tax breaks come to mind--I think it could work!
