    When you do and you post something intelligent and worthy of response I will be there. But keep taking that Advil. Who knows? It might just grow you a pair after all.

    2013 Expenditures: $3.4 trillion
    2014 Expenditures: $3.5 trillion (planned)

    Government employment didn't change, and as has been the case during the entire recovery, the job growth is in the private sector.

    While government expenditures do affect GDP, government spending does not appear to have contributed to the overall GDP growth rate (or the Q1 loss) for 2014.
    Ah. So basically those who argued that government did not generate the resources it allocated, and that absent government usage, those resources would be put to better (more productive) use by the private economy were vindicated? Well who'da thunk.

    Lol! For one thing, Volker created the Volker Fund in 1932 to finance hospitals and charities. What that has to do with promoting ideology or how it works as proof that he is the father of anything is beyond me.

    Well read the article then...

    The Volker fund actually gave allot of money to political organizations, and the reasons he founded it where to also reform healthcare, education, and to "combat the machine politics in local governments" so really it was always into politics...

    When lunhow (his nephew) took over it went into politics hard, and really started growing libertarianism into the behemoth you see today.

    In the early 60's it turned into the institute for human studies, and ceased all charitable donations except for those to a political end.

    It eventually gave all its money to the koch family foundations among others (like hoover foundation) and eventually the koch family foundation would help fund john birch society.

    There are allot of parallels between jbh and libertarians of today, including phrases and propaganda.

    This book does a great job of paralleling the two. It was written by a women that grew up in jbh...

    No. Only late in his life did he use the fund for ideological purposes. Those purposes being local civic government education.

    I mean you can deny the facts of it all you want. It does not make them true.

    He gave 7 mill to hoover. That's local politics? Its not even in his state!

    He also gave to koch family foundations, the Bradley foundation, and the Carthage foundation. He sponsored professors in Austrian economics so they could teach, because no school wanted them.

    By the end the Volker fund had no charitable contributions besides political ones, to the extreme right, and certainly on the national scale. For the love of god in the end it turned into the institute for human studies, which was solely a political think tank...
