    Huck said "Why would a supplier want to sell more units?"

    Is economics for socialist morons and business for smart republicans?

    What is the actual difference?

    Man, Huck consistantly makes you look silly and illuminates the vast gulf between your respective understandings of economics in general. It would be one thing if you didn't respond to all of his posts saying "You're completely wrong in all ways....again". It would be another if you argued with him without being antagonistic and emotional. Obviously I don't expect you to admit where you've been proven wrong, that rarely happens on this board. But why on earth, when you've been so consistantly and soundly argued against, if not beaten, do you call him a socialist moron? It shows a lack of grace and its really petty.

    He hasn't proven me wrong.

    He's written more words, but his ideas are ineffective and separated from how the business world really works.

    If he's so smart why would he say this "why would a supplier want to sell more units?" That's idiotic.

    Economics is an abstract study of things taken out of the realities of the competitive marketplace. That's the difference.

    You're petty, but a bit graceful, polesmoker.

    I won't argue about who is right and wrong, but calling me a polesmoker, what on EARTH does that accomplish, other than showing how little respect you have for fellow human beings. Especially during the holiday season; spread some cheer maybe, instead of being a name-calling grinch.

    Right wing,
    Are sure you are literate, it seems you can't read beyond the first few sentences of any of my arguments. I mean really if you don't understand some of the bigger words just ask me for a definition I will be happy to provide one, I would much rather do that than continue killing you in these debates. Lastly I will point out that you, in typical boorish fashion, took my words completely out of context so that they would serve your interest. I am not going to waste any more time arguing with you, you have yet to understand, let alone refute a single one of my arguments and choose instead to call me names.
    Merry Christmas
    HUCK

    Dude, you lost a long time ago. I explained the dynamics of how tax cuts stimulate the economy, by incenting investment, resulting in real growth. You said you saw my point. That's when you lost. It was a long time ago. Being condescending is not the same as winning arguments.

    An honest reread of all threads by any competent person would support my case.

    Are you still confused as to why a supplier would want to sell more units? Come back and admit your idiocy and I'll see if i can kick some sense into your ignorant ass.

    Of course you're done; libs always run away when they lose. LOSER!


    Here's the thread where you seemed confused about increasing business volume. Increased volume doesn ALWAYS mean increased marginal cost, in fact, many times it means less. You're daft.

    My assessment stands. Academic economists are socialist, pointy-headed, clueless, morons, for the most part.

    But you failed to address the marginal propensity to consume. Also you failed to address firm incentive and you failed to separate micro from macro. You failed to explain why your model automatically leads to greater out put (what about monopolies, Oligopolies, and monopsonys) You failed to address constant or decreasing returns to scale, in fact you failed to really make an argument other than say that I am a pointy head liberal.
    I wonder right wing is the old maxim true...is ignorance really bliss?
    Cheers
    Huck

    We were talking about how tax cuts for the wealthy grow the economy.


    You conflated the issue with a pricing discussion. I went along.

    Firms lower prices to DO MORE BUSINESS and beat out the competition.

    None of this is difficult. Why is it hard for you?

    I believe the intention of the socialist academes is to teach a generation of bleary eyed, mushy skulled youngsters that the world can be controlled through price fixing. What gave this away is your insistence that firms are merely price takers. That is obviously wrong. Firms are market makers.

    Price fixing cause the flu shot shortage we just experienced.

    I thought you were done arguing? I guess when you realized how stupid you look you figured you'd try again. You failed again.

    You are monumentally dense which brings us to physics. Go away, black hole.
