    Careful; he's going to say something about the Koch brothers now. You know how scathing that is.

    The idea is to take the opportunity to rant about how terrible the US is economically, especially compared to the great nation of Singapore. Three dudes win a Nobel prize and, for some people, that's the conversation.

    LOL, so he's oblivious or willfully ignorant to the fact that economics is a global concept and the principles and studies are hardly divided by nations.

    Read through their bios, all have impressive resumes in their field of study.

    Singapore's entire economy is a rounding error compared to the US economy.
