    Yes. Saw some days ago and was tempted to send this to her -- for all the
    good it would do . . . . NONE!

    Keynesian economics; this is where Democrats spend deficits like drunken sailors in bad economic times (To boost the economy) and then don't pay it back, but rather just spend even more in good economic times.

    Back when I was an under-grad econ major JMK was considered a
    light weight social commentator, not an economist.

    AOC - Boston University - BA International relations and Economics - cum laude!!!

    How in hell does anyone earn a BA in Economics cum laude, and not know a fucking thing about Economics? And to cite such a discredited "economist" as Milton Keynes (aka John Maynard Keynes), without even knowing his name, and likely also ignorant of his theories, proves she is a bonafide moron. Obviously confusing monetarist Milton Friedman with Keynes, with Friedman being another often discredited economist.

    We've veered from Keynesian to Monetarist and back to Keynesian policy in the modern era. The lines between the two are now becoming blurred. It would seem control of the economy may very well involve a synthesis of the two theories, each implemented at different steps in the attempt to influence the direction of the economy. But there is little agreement of a new all-encompassing theory that effectively brings about the desired result.

    Regardless, AOC hasn't a clue about that which she speaks. I suggest she read Henry Hazlitt as a primer for speaking on issues of economics.

    It is a very misguided form of economics that pretends spending and consumerism is the driver, not productivity and actual wealth creation. Take a good look around the globe. There is no shortage of consumers and yet poverty can be found just about everywhere.
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan
