    Good evening Way. The trolls on this site are a bit more interesting (for the moment)...

    I agree.

    They still all use these bogus studies though to try and make ridiculous points....

    Yeah, and some of them even know what fee-for-service means. Others maybe not so much.

    Of those 17 countries . . . so in the world-rankings we're, what, like 17 out of 196 . . . maybe dropping into the 20's or so? I don't know - they only cherry picked 17 . . . and from the skewed view of slim and simplified statistics which don't cover the deeper aspects one would have to examine, no less.

    But never mind some common sense, here - never mind that.

    So they are endless, but you can't provide links to them?
    How many co workers do you have setting up internet sites so links can be provided? Someone needs to grow up.

    Failing for those too stupid to look out for themselves, I agree.

    It wouldn't be a proper comparison to compare us with less wealthy and industrialized countries. Better to compare apples to apples.

    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.

    Advanced economies. Comparing us to Somalia is a bit unfair. But with the help of the GOP, we may reach Somalia status soon.
