    The tide of economic ideas turned in the 70's.

    Even during the height of exaggerated bubbles (that the Fed failed to act on, or even contributed to directly) we never pull back. The theory is we get conservative during good times, but in practice we just get more aggressive. In the end, Keynesianism gives what otherwise just looks like drunken profligate spending the appearance of a theoretical justification.

    Even Washington said we should spend down the debts that inevitable wars cause. Do we? Of course not. Today's Kenyesian advocates have found a magical excuse to never get fiscally conservative.

    Yes, he did. For one such example, he supported a jobs program to train workers in new job skills.

    Sadly I must go to the gym. I suggest some of you educate yourself on basic economics and American history before regurgitating stuff you hear on Republican talk radio or wherever you get your bs from.

    I would suggest a library but I guess we cannot accuse you of getting your stuff from liberal talk radio-it all went bankrupt. Maybe too much Rachel Madcow?

    Have fun-SYL

    Millennial's like this entitled little worm want to take the wealth I earned and also disarm. Nice try, pajama boy.

    I wish I wasn't so late to the party. I've taken multiple college level economics and business courses but who cares, coursework is coursework. We're not debating foundational textbook material here, we're debating the prognosis of a Keynesian approach that, historically speaking, is experimental. Pretty much unchartered territory. The comments I've made about this owe citation to a guy named George Cooper, who laid out a similar argument (with more thorough explanation) about how we've bastardized Keynes' insights in his book "The Origin of Financial Crises."

    I look forward to your response to that, if you care to actually discuss the topic rather than accuse everyone of ignorance of the entire fields of history and economics.

    How am I supposed to debate anything when you say things like "pretty much uncharted territory" when speaking about Keynesian economics?
