    Not to mention that those GOP soundbites - standing as counterparts to Mr. Independent's example of 'leftist' slogans - are in fact designed to polarize Americans and thereby pit them against each other.

    Hillary Clinton slams trickle-down economics, 'business' doesn't create jobs? - Chicago Top News | Examiner.com

    So, here we go again...business doesn't create jobs...what a joke.
    She's actually correct. Demand does. If there is demand, a job will be created.

    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.

    Who are these 'competing interest' you mention? You don't understand that claiming that Republicans are fighting a war against women, over half the population, is a negative? Or that there is a war against Blacks, Hispanics, or any minorities?
    How does this help the country when there are genuine interests which have to be addressed, education among them? This is 'dumbing down' politics, and that so many people buy into it is not helping the country at all. http://nypost.com/2013/10/08/us-adul...average-human/

    These terms have little to do with complicated economic problems but are instead meaningless slogans designed by politicians to oversimplify the issue for a gullible electorate who think they understand economics..

    Not necessary. The excuse used for freezing employee salaries was that JPMC had to pay billions in legal fees and fines, both of which were the result of profound mismanagement from the top. Yet the board justified a 74% pay increase for Dimon based on the overall positive growth of the firm. Don't you think the opposite should have been the case?

    Obviously the legal fees and fines weren't considered as caused by "profound mismanagement from the top" because if that was the case Dimon would've been fired. For example, the London Whale debacle wasn't due to anything Dimon did. Further, JPMC did a thorough investigation of it, because they don't want to lose money, and are interested in preventing it from happening again...

    He nearly was.

    Dimon not only lied to the shareholders about it but also tried to hide the extent of those loses from regulators. There is a clear pattern at JPMC of executives claiming ignorance of their operations from the mortgage crisis, to its management of Maddoff's ponzi scheme, to the London Whale yet their fingerprints are all over the broomstick when regulators look under the rug.
