    So what are you then. Keynesian? Marxist? Give us a brief description of just how command-like your ideal economy would be.
    Liberals are perfectly capable of having a "reasonable understanding of such things...", as are Cons. That does not mean they have to agree.

    Yes, I am a Keynesian.

    Nice. I also used 'visitor messages' to post a brief CV and some information about my philosophical background (begins on the last page/first post).



    ps. The best part about visitor messages? You can delete other people's posts. I enjoyed that.

    I voted reaching silent observers.

    Winning over those with opposing views is a bonus. I would've voted that also, if this were a multiple choice poll.
