    Did he take over means of production? Perhaps he made land ownership illegal? Yeah, I think you're loose with the actual definition of socialism.

    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.

    its like saying you should adopt the training methods of all the guys who cannot make a college team because there are far more of them than those who make the Olympic medal rounds

    but then again when one is content to never win it makes sense
    The best quality for the most people is what the majority of the country want. If only the 1% wins and everyone else loses that is no victory for the country.

    actually the government took steps in that direction, companies were used for the war effort on direction of the government.

    You consider a better standard of living for more people and better economy to be drugs?

    I consider people becoming more and more dependent on government handouts and expecting others to continually pay for what they want to be bad for them in the long run
