That was a great read.
Forbes long ago stepped from the shadow of his father and became one of the more insightful and well-spoken economic commentators on the national stage.
Hopefully more will read his words and understand the message...
Yup, trust us money men, so we can screw you again.
Be nice to them---they will be the ones funding alternative energy.
To say nothing of the vast majority of all taxes paid...
Steve didn't move any factories overseas (that I know of) he seems more of a tax cutter than a "service economy" proponent. If the US economy is going to recover we'll need the guys like Steve and his readers to carry the ball.
Not me I trust the bureaucrats ....Heil Hitler.
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question." --Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:320
I thought it was a great read as well. The health care portion? A common-sensed, non-government takeover, real reform approach would work. Which is exactly why they aren't considering it.
I continue to not be impressed by this so called social thinker.
If he was a nobody, his msusings of society wouldn't make a splash...not in a place like this, folks.
He has, as far as I can tell never had an original thought in his life.
The man would be a tool, only he was to the manor born, so he's a master.
We don't need original thought ( i.e. synthetic trees) to resolve our problem. Old time tested common sense needs to be repeated over and over under someone listens and acts on it.
