Die-hard libertarians are going to have some explaining to do when their children are paying the price for their opposition to fiscal and monetary stimulus. It is quite astounding that despite the consensus among economic experts, libertarians still believe that their understanding of economics is superior. Among other questions, extremist libertarians should be prepared to answer the following questions that will innevitably be asked their children and grandchildren:
1. Why did you staunchly oppose the stimulus programs that according to almost all Ivy League economics professors were essential for America's economic recovery?
2. Why did you not do your part by spending and boosting aggregate demand?
3. Why did you cause a credit collapse by saving and paying down debt, when the economic advisors had specifically warned you against this in advance?
4. Why did you support racist fanatics like Ron Paul even though they had been completely exposed and discredited by the media?
5. Why did you refuse to support ANY of Obama's jobs bills?
I know what I will tell my kids. What will you tell your's?

I'd tell my kids and grandkids to quit their bitchen, strap on the knee pads and go lay some tile.  Or plumbing. Or fix a car, but for chrissakes learn a skill and do something of value.  That something should please you and the client you help.  We can't all be speculators.  And I damn sure wont tolerate Trolls in my house.

Like Buffet said, if we were but 100 persons dropped on an island with a sack of rice seed no infrastructure but arabale land and a favorable climate, the two fellows who decided they should trade rice futures would be the least valued in our society.  In fact they would look mighty tasty while we wait for the harvest.

I'll add trolls would look mighty tasty too.

I wanted to watch this, however, the democrats make it absolutely unable to be watched. These political clowns are just beyond irritating.

Here is the logic by the moronic democrat from mass.

Republicans block a bill that gives money for "green jobs." Therefore republicans are trying to "kill" the green industry.

Hum... So he is basically stating that the green industry is PURELY and TOTALLY dependent upon government money and that it is unable to compete in the world WITHOUT government money? If thats the case, (which in some ways thats true, others not, in the case of solyndra, obviously it is) then obviously the green industry is a BAD INVESTMENT. He is either a fucking moron, or just a complete political hack. I'll assume both.

Precisely. You are probably too young to remember, but Jimmy Carter did the very same thing in the 70s, and as soon as guv money stopped, the entire industry fell in a heap. No way would I put money into such a thing.

I read an article earlier about Solyndra, and the only thing that came out to me was them stating that they closed due to an "OVERSUPPLY OF THE GLOBAL SOLAR PANEL MARKET."

Which, if anybody watched the Daily Show episode on this (which wasn't half bad, he's been making some good ones lately even if I don't care for him...) it showed a republican congressman from California, grilling a (i think) DOE guy about the over supply and competition with the (i think) thin film market. He then stated how China completely moved away from that market as a result, yet thats what Solyndra went straight into.

The disengeniousness of some of these people blows my mind. This is literally on the order of digging ditches and filling them back up to dig them again. If there is an oversupply that means there is very little demand for them. What this congressman clearly doesn't understand (or understands but is a political hack) is that there has to be a BUYER ON THE OTHER END of these products.

Your argument is based on the premise that resources should be allocated based on the subjective preferences of free market participants. But it is now perfectly clear that their preferences are simply WRONG. Only experts in economics are qualified to allocate resources efficiently. This is the most objective means of resource allocation possible and will provide people with what they SHOULD have according to qualified professionals, rather than want they WANT.

You know your right. There should be more economics advisors. Everybody should have their own advisor so that they know EXACTLY what they should be buying as mandated by their government masters!

That is not necessary. This could be achieved by letting professional economists set prices of all consumer and capital goods. This will ensure that the optimal amount of each good is consumed. If there is too much comsumption of a particular good then its price will be raised. If there is too little consumption of a good, its price will be lowered.

The free market does that all by itself through supply and demand.

Chew on this....

You create a product, it costs $10 to produce. You need to charge $15 and sell x amount so you can live your life and pay your bills etc... But in your world, there are price controls and the overlords in charge say you can only charge $9 for your product even though there is enough demand at $15.

Now what happens, you tell me....

As I said before, the 'demand' is a subjective preference of fallible individuals. The most objective way to allocate resources is according to the intricate mathematical models of financial experts.

You mean like oil subsidies?

Fri, 09/23/2011 - 10:35 | 1701052 TheTmfreak
TheTmfreak's picture

Thats a litttttle different.

You look at how much money is obtained from oil subsidies and its paltry to big oil. They're not really "subsidies" either. Nearly all money earned by oil companies is from business conducted outside the United States. Infact US local, state and federal governments make money from US oil sales than oil companies.

The difference is if you removed the millions of dollars of "subsidies" they would still exist, hell I doubt there would even be a price increase.

Also, let me be clear that I do not support redistribution of wealth nor proping up any company, industry or individual for any reason. You clearly missed the point of the entire discussion regarding the fact that these companies are implicitly held up BY government funds and the "industry" wouldn't exist (in its current form) without government interventionism.

You realized that "spending money", is really spending promisary notes....notes which have *your chilldrens income* down as surety. In other words, your spending money which has not yet been collected in order to "boost aggregate demand". You can tell your children, "Hey I saved the economy by posting you as collateral ROFL!". I'm sure they'll love you for it.

Jobs Bill? Well refer to the above, if *only* it was possibe to gain prosperity by printing and or borrowing money! Ivy league buffoons who think that war is good for the economy - broken window fallacy says "no".

Libtard, first let me state that I realize my reply is for my benefit, not yours, as I am clear none of my thoughtful points will come close to penetrating such a dense structure as your skull must be:

1.  Even if your bullshit statement were true, how does this matter?  Because some know-nothing Keynesian academics with misshapen heads support a policy that has repeatedly proven not to work, we should support it?  Morons like you that see academics, with no real world experience as our saviors, are exactly what is wrong with this country.

2.  Wow!  So to you it makes more sense for the government to take money from the private sector and then politically choose how to spend it, versus just keeping it in the private sector?  This makes sense to "spur demand"?  Go back in time to communist Russia please.

3.  Yeah, saving and paying down debt is our problem.  This must be a joke.  Nobody could really be this stupid and still be able to turn on a computer.

4.  Not sure how to even reply to this one.  Racist?  Oh, I get it now.  When a libtard disagrees with someone they call them a racist.  

5.  Yeah, the government creates jobs.  Again, as in #2 above, please explain how it makes sense to take money from the REAL job creators, then give it to those with PURE political motivations, to "create" jobs?  How???  Please explain.

Nobody should take this Occupy Wall Street "protest" crap seriously.  Not when all you see are a bunch of lazy asses in their early 20s, still trying to "find themselves" while living off of daddy's trust fund, setting up tents on wall street, but typing away on their $2000 Mac Books, and $500 iPhones, texting on their Droid phones, drinking bottles of Fiji water, while majoring in "general studies" at Columbia U.

There's something wrong when people like this are bitching about jobs, but I have to hire some Mexicans to mow my fucking lawn.  Hey, Winthorp Jr., camping out on Wall Street "protesting"...come here and trim my hedges you lazy tuckfard!

Just another indication that the GOP is going to throw up an 'Obama-lite' candidate in 2012...which is why it will be better in the long run if Obama gets re-elected and the collapse comes that much sooner.

It's very easy to blame the MSM for dissmissing him, but even as a follower I have to question the relevance.  Ron Paul has a very organized following. 

Yes they can:

- perform well at a paid for straw poll, where someone else bought victory

- win an online poll

- raise a large sum of money in a single day

To me, it is a very coordinated effort.  It does not represent a huge percentage of future votes.

it is now, more than ever, obvious that people above a certain net worth threshold who possess the right connections and run in the right social circles can lie to congress or any court with impunity while the rest of us, if caught committing similar offenses, would be tried and fried for perjury.

it's not that the system is's that the mask of a fair system ever having existed has melted off revealing a system as corrupt as any banana republic or dictatorship on the planet.

I beleive but stand to be corrected, it was GWB who started the funding. It was a bet on a disruptive tech, bad bet as it turns out. Not the biggest waste of $500Billion in recent history by a long shot.

The Bush administration denied the loan based on merit. It was revived by Obama because it fell into two desirable categories at once (kind of like hiring a Black woman-killing two birds with one stone) promoting the green industry and new job creation.

Turned out Obama bet on the wrong horse and now he is paying the price.

The current administration even knew what they produced cost $6 and the best they could sell if for was $3 and they still went ahead, In other words, for a liberal, this was a layup, send the money.

Pentagon officials determined that one giant C-130 Hercules cargo plane could carry $2.4 billion in shrink-wrapped bricks of $100 bills. They sent an initial full planeload of cash, followed by 20 other flights to Iraq by May 2004 in a $12-billion haul that US officials believe to be the biggest international cash airlift of all time.

The Times' description of how the billions of dollars entered the country is a must-read:

WTF is that money.

Tyler, time for some editing on your threads.

The first comment by Comay Mierda  is  a thread hijack, and simply should have been pulled without second thought.

I guess there is some value in having that comment there.  You can tell who the Obama paid surfers are and how desperate that they are to drive attention away from the trash occupying the white house.

Much ado about something, but naught will come of it. Certainly not impeachment proceedings - Biden is the perfect insurance policy against that ever happening.

Think about it. Biden is too stupid to be a good puppet - even with the mechanisms in place making it legal for him, as a senator, to bilk the system for tens (if not hundreds) of million$, he had one of the lowest net worth figures in all of congress (not just the senate).

If he can't even learn how to steal for himself, how is he, as president, gonna gloss over stealing for his bosses?
