    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.

    In the pre-industrial world it was certainly possible to kill hundreds of thousands. It was just harder work. Manual labor, as it were.

    Absolutely yes! I hope they get them! Balances the power in the ME between Israel and Iran then.

    If Iran gets the bomb then Egypt and Saudi Arabia will not be far behind. That is, if Iran does not immediately attack Israel.

    "Human nature is a constant even if "moral centers" are not." I would only add "relative" before "constant" - otherwise, well said!

    And yeah, I'm having a good spring - life is good indeed! And I hope you're having an even better one

    That's a foolish view, but I won't try to explain. Fact is Israel would not go down alone. Much damage in many places.

    Re: Does Iran have a "Right" to Nuclear Weapons?

    I don't really think that any country should have or produce nuclear weapons since they are a danger to all of humanity, but as it stands at this moment I think that Iran should be able to research and produce whatever they want just like we do since we have no authority over them.
