Lousy Question; Excellent Answer

Over the past few months, I asked several well-known economists a poorly worded question: Was there such a phenom as the “physics of economics”? Put a better way: are the economic forces now in play on a national and international scale, irreversible? Or is the Financial Cliff our unavoidable destination? Monty Pelerin and I discussed the “better” question in our recent  Libertas Media Project pod cast . Now he has written  this superb piece, "It's The Government, Stupid" simply and succinctly laying out the answers to my flummoxed  interrogatory,  painting  a clear, concise picture of our future.

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA

Rich Iott post this on FaceBook but FB has a short shelf life. If you're not Friends with Rich or you were occupied otherwise, you would have missed this excellent piece. I'm posting it here since my low profile blog site has a permanance FB doesn't.   R ead. If you agree, pass it along. If not, tell me why. BW BUCHANAN TO OBAMA By Patrick J. Buchanan Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these: First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known..
