While we've debated what caused it, the most important question is what's being done to stop it.....the answer is nothing. And, nothing is on the
horizon for being done.
A parallel occurred to me recently between economic theory and government models. Supply-side Economics is to Socialism what Trickle Down Economics is
to Communism. Like socialism, nothing is wrong with supply side in theory, but like communism became a system of 'more equal than others' so does
trickle down lose it's traction for failing to account for greed and the 'human condition'. Or more plainly, it only trickles down if those at the
top don't put out rain barrels.
A Mr.Snow, another by-no-talent-but-only-connections CEO has been appointed Treasury Secretary with the sole marketed benefit, as announced by Emperor
Bush himself and parroted by all the corporate media, of having connections to where he can SELL Bush's tax cut only economic
philosophy. Nothing about changing a plan that has proven to already not work....just having someone who can SELL it
Yet, the partisans that are pro-Bush fail to look at the fact that there is not ONE Economist on Bush's Economic team, only
the literal foxes ( CEO's, Corp. Exec's and Lobbyists) in the hen house laying out how they want the nests configured. That no Doctor of Economics
would lose their credibility by signing on to a BIG LIE, is lost on them.
