Mackinac Center for Public Policy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Mackinac Center scholars generally recommend lower state and local taxes, reduced regulatory authority for state agencies, labor law revisions including making Michigan a right-to-work state, school choice via universal tuition tax credits, and enhanced protection of individual property rights. They have been outspoken in their opposition to state higher taxes, economic central planning programs including subsidies, targeted corporate tax breaks,

Only three?

I got a whole slew of them here: Great Myths of the Great Depression [Mackinac Center]
NO not only three just the top three:lol:

I did notice that from your link it said the great depression ended in 1941 where as my link the man said 1947
The 1947 Idea assumes that the Period of Growth from 41 to 47, was artificial, spurred on by spending on WWI, and not a genuine Recovery. Kinda like what Obama thinks a Recovery is.

In your head
Obama's Director of the White House National Economic Council & Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers at 22:00 in video
"If Hitler had not come along, Franklin Roosevelt would have left office in the beginning of 1941 with an unemployment rate in excess of 15% and an economic recovery strategy that had basically failed."
Democrat's hero John Maynard Keynes
"Nor should the argument seem strange that taxation may be so high as to defeat its object, and that, given sufficient time to gather the fruits, a reduction of taxation will run a better chance than an increase of balancing the budget."
Government spending is now 47% of GDP & growing. In 2000 it was only 36.14% of GDP. We are now just 3% away from being a government controlled economy. That is the level we spiked to during WWII at the end of the great depression. Now government just remains at depression era spending levels & the economy is tanking.

Democrats scream that government has been cut to the bone over the last 20 years since Regan but the fact is government spending as percent of GDP rose under Regan, Bush & Bush. It only fell under Clinton.
