The lack of sympathy here is lamentable. Jackson Jr. has been diagnosed with bipolar and is totally unable to fulfill his responsibilities and that is a shame. As to the campaign funds being appropriated, impulsive spending and disregard for the law are pretty much hallmark symptoms of a manic episode. Many people spend themselves into oblivion, and do incredibly impulsive things like sell their homes, make risky investments, and steal money from relatives. Jackson Jr....
But, more to your point, scarphe, the periods of actual hyperinflation in Argentina were preceded by shocks to output. The first shock was long and slow, due to the increasing government ownership of all industries beginning with Peron and continuing through the mid-70s. Real output stagnated or fell at many points during this regime as a corrupt and inefficient socialization scheme resulted in inefficient production and lowered output. The cumulative effects of this...
That's not hyperinflation. Hyperinflation is a monthly inflation rate of 20% or more, not an annual rate.
Please show me a single economy that experienced hyper-inflation without a preceding disaster that devastated the country's physical infrastructure.
Yes, massive tax cuts would spur economic growth. However, it's not a guarantee that revenue will rise. You can cut taxes in a weak economy or going into a recession and revenue will fall even more than it would have otherwise. Kennedy cut taxes going into a growth period -- revenue was going to grow no matter what, and possibly could have grown even more at a higher rate of taxation. But whatever, it's all irrelevant anyway because the government doesn't need tax revenue...
I agree that the article overestimates the changing of the electorate. For one, the US House districts are so fucking gerrymandered now that we won't win the chamber until 2022 at the earliest. In PA we won more than 50% of the vote in Congressional elections this year, yet only won 5 of 17 seats. Fucking insane. But, that said, I hope the predictions in this article do come to pass. I would love to see a pro-socialist mainstream America that demonizes management, the...
The whole misconception of a thread like this is that the mis-statements of Bush were not in and of themselves egregious. It's that his detractors viewed them as emblematic of his intellectual incuriosity. You can get away with a lot of stuff if people believe it isn't emblematic of your core character, and if people think it is, then you'll be watched closely on that count. And the truth is, no one who isn't a rabid partisan thinks Obama is stupid, incurious, or...
So I guess I'm reduced to hoping that both ND and Flordia get upset next week, so that Oregon has a chance to be #2 after Bama and UGA duke it out in the SEC champ. Fucking Oregon sports teams always manage to choke when it counts.
I can't fucking believe this.
Where the fuck is Oregon's passing game right now. Stanford is not a great pass-defense team. Why can't UO's receivers get open?
