Um, Adair Turner was Chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority. I'm not sure this qualifies him as a "douche bag assfuck", but YMMV ...
Adair Turner at the Festival of Economics in December, 2014. Start at the 4 minute mark after the bloviating introduction to save yourself some time. The talk itself is then about 45 minutes long and is nothing short of a brilliant disquisition upon globalization, inequality, banking and real estate (the FIRE sector), and interest rates. The Q+A that follows is also excellent. OK -- back to work ...
Can't stop watching replays of the Orange Bowl. Second half of COFH and the whole OB are just old-fashioned O-line beat-downs.
Yes, that atrocious give-in to the epicentre of Ontario's NIMBYism, Oakville, was a disgrace. For this, the Ornge scandal, and other embarrassments typical of governments so long in the tooth, the Ontario Liberal Party should have been dead in the water.

I realize I'm a little late, but I'll just drop this little nugget here ...Where's a troll-face emoticon when you need one?
Been a while since I dipped a toe into the CEsspool echo-chamber. Good to see that some things never change ... Surprised that piob made no reference to Ontario's election in June. Among other things it saw off the last remnants of the Ford administration (that'd be fat, crack-smoking Rob and his creepy brother Doug) in Toronto, and the implosion of the Progressive Conservative (how's that for an oxymoron?) Party of Ontario, which was reduced to a rural rump of angry,...
