    Good vigorous economies don't run smoothly. They will oscillate a little.

    Most people don't want to do the work necessary to make decisions that influence and/or control the economy.

    If that's what makes a good economy, then perhaps that IS a smoothly running economy. "smooth" in this case may not mean actual smoothness.

    Our federal Congress should know best simply because they can establish any needful buildings necessary to enable them to know best.

    I tried to vote for both our Administration AND the Federal Reserve....a damned no go !
    Surely , NOT Congress !

    Economists, yes, but, some are jerks, with no concept nor original ideas....or conservative ideas(obsolete)...
