    Hat tip to Hot Air...

    Question for Stewart ralliers: Is Obama a Keynesian, or was he born in America? Hot Air

    I agree with the above. There are dumb folks in every crowd.

    Of course Obama is a Keynesian, as is every other sane person who knows anything about economics.

    Oooo goodie. Do I get to actually argue economics with someone? Does this person have the tools?

    Tell me Rag, what's your problem with the notion that the ISLM and Philips curves pretty much explain the macro-economy?

    Keynsianism is the smoke screen used by those who wish to implement totalitarian control of the economy.

    Just sayin'.

    FTR, I know this thread wasn't really supposed to be about economics. Anyway...

    boed, what's your problem with the notion that the ISLM and Philips curves pretty much explain the macro-economy?

    What do you think Keynesianism is?

    Umm, no, you spouted some pretty inane stuff. Now, please, if you are capable, tell me what substantive differences you have with the Keynesian econometric model. I mean, we added solid micro-economics and everything!

    Do you have a clue?

    I don't know if he's a Keynesian or not but I do know he's one fucked up President. If you think Bush was fucked up, Owe Bama should really be ringing your bell.

    I don't know if he's a Keynesian or not

    But the more relevant question is, do you know what a Keynesian is?

    Actually, the more relevant question is:
