    Phew, an expert on drug cartels, eh. That oughta come in real handy when looking for a job in Ohio. But like you said anyone can "google" and become an "expert" off the internet. However, your true knowledge and understanding was revealed when you omitted the word "is" and confused me with another poster. ROTFLO

    So, do speak for all nobodies or just yourself? Obviously you had to look Yglesias up on Google, so now you are an "expert" on him, too?

    Even if the release of this was timed, it's still relevant to the midterms and taxes.

    Now is not the time to give an additional tax break to the wealthy and super-wealthy.
    Who cares if the gap is a record? Except for Class Warfare Warriors.

    Thieving wealth from the job creators isn't going to do a thing to help those lower down. In fact it hurts them even more.

    A gap in the census record doesn't matter anyway. What we should be looking at is wealth, not income. A guy who has money in the bank is still rich even if he's retired, yet his income would be low, making him poor according to these standards.

    True, but it shouldn't matter in either case or any case. But that's where a good portion of our society has sunk to; class warfare/envy society. Consumed with what others are doing and trying to knock them down.

    Nonsense. It is a real concern for a country when the middle class shrinks. And it has.

    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.

    Proof? I mean following individuals, not census records.

    You mean, take back a fraction of the money that corporations receive from Americans in the form of subsidies, infrastructure, and lax enforcement of labor and environmental laws? I don't think that quite constitutes "soaking," and Sweden doesn't look very "miserable" to me - other than the natural effects of its climate.

    How does a corporation steal from you? Name one corporation that has stolen money from you (without government assistance, of course).

    Frankly I don't give a **** about Sweden or what you think of it. I am tired of you stealing my money to pay for your little dumbass pet projects.
