On Hannity tonight, he gave the quote of the week:

"Well, for that expensive Ivy League education, did it include economics 101?.....I don't think so!"

Notice how the Left has dropped the anti-Jindal stories now that he isn't running for president?

Yeah I noticed. That happened shortly after he bombed the response to the SOTU.

Not so coincidentally the calls for a Jindal White House run began fading fast right around that time too.

Funny that.

ECON 101 tells you basically nothing about real economics.

Nice theory though.

True. Econ 101 tells you that if you increase the cost of something, there will be less of it. Like if you increase the cost of hiring through mandates and taxes then there will be less of it. Totally not real world experience. Right?

Econ 101 is based on the theory of Homo economicus, Rab.

Now do you seriously believe that one can understand macro-economics based on understanding the theories taught in Econ 101?

Our world does not work the way Econ 101 economic theories suggest it does.

Woot..Jindal!

Despite the fact that the checks contain millions of dollars of Recovery Act funds for job training programs, housing assistance programs, homelessness prevention programs, police training, criminal justice technology upgrades, and community development block grants, Jindal has been printing his own name on the checks and taking credit for the money. For example, Jindal presented Lafayette with yet another jumbo-sized check that contained at least $2,125,584 in Recovery Act funds. Though the money came from spending policies authorized by the Recovery Act, Jindal did not appear to credit the Recovery Act at all. And although the state stands to gain nearly $8 billion in federal funding from the Recovery Act, Jindal was one of several GOP governors to try to block the measure earlier this year.

The unemployment rate in Louisiana has DOUBLED since Bobby Jindal was elected governor.

He's in no position to school others on economics.

Economics, particularly marco-econ is, I suspect going to be seen as the fools' science of the century.

If it was really the powerful proscriptive diagnostic/prognostic tool that some of you imagine it to be, we'd never ever EVER have a recession or depression, the world would be a paradise with plenty enough for all.

The things that we cannot predict are now and will always be the problem.

Periodically some Black Swan event will upset the nature of the way we do business, and no economist in the world is every going to stop that from happening.
