    Friedman also supported income tax withholding...How has that one worked out?

    Oh yeah...He admitted that was one of his biggest regrets.

    He also supported privatizing Social Security, so let's get going with that.

    If the Republicans win everything in 2012 - and I think they will - we could have a repeat of 1937.

    We might have a repeat even if they don't.

    Yup. They cut spending and raised taxes to balance the budget, and the Fed required banks to increase reserves, i.e. monetary tightening.
