We are concerned to see the Sanders campaign citing extreme claims by Gerald Friedman about the effect of Senator Sanders’s economic plan—claims that cannot be supported by the economic evidence. Friedman asserts that your plan will have huge beneficial impacts on growth rates, income and employment that exceed even the most grandiose predictions by Republicans about the impact of their tax cut proposals.

How is it that economists can't agree on a system that works?
Trickle up, trickle down, socialist, capitalist, Keynesian, . . . . . . ?
I understand that there are different models and all, but is there one specific article that provides data instead of opinion?
I only ask because anyone who is for Sanders is disagreeing with the economist, they aren't disagreeing with the data.
Bernie Sanders' economic plan is receiving criticism from an unusual source. Former democrat economists for Obma and Clinton administrations

They cannot agree on a system that works because any system put in place is doomed to fail if the leadership is corrupt and individual greed wins over the status of the collective.
Whether it's socialism or capitalism, it will not work if the people at the top manipulate the system to benefit the elite.
