    Be sure to click on the other national leaders that expressed concerns (including Christina Romer).
    I think if you read more from Galbraith you will see that he has tremendous concerns about our economy. He just doesnt believe the deficit is the problem we need to be concentrating on first.

    "P.S. Surprised you dont invest with him since you seem to hold him in extremely high regard.
    You read his books and quote from him. Hmmm."

    And you used him to make a laugher out of Laffer (and your true arch enemy - JOHN).

    Actually, I agree that we have bigger immediate problems than the deficit. What is in debate is the solution and its effectiveness. I would also agree would Romer's observation that too much debt does indeed interfere with the ability to stimulate the economy using fiscal policy.

    Yes, laffer is a joke and was completely oblvious to the bubbles that were forming in the economy.
    Schiff got one right out of ???? It looks like he wasnt too accurate with
    other of his predictions.

    That liberal Romer? lol. What a "shill".

    Glad you agree that there are other problems to tackle before we deal with the deficit.

    What party is Schiff? I'm guessing Republican.

    Schiff is having a party? Let's go.

    The deficit should be considered as solutions for the "other problems" are developed.

    They're all shills Lloyd. It's called "towing the party line".

    Heck, I don't know. I like him for the economics. I'm not totally certain he's running for anything. I think that's the blogger talking.

    Election results are coming in...................... We'll see if your party can maintain its position, or if the electorate wants "change".

    BTW, CNN is what I'm watching tonight. Had to say it given your propensity to criticize Fox BUSINESS News.

    I heard Schiff stay it himself that he needed help for his political run.
    He is a Republican.

    Dont know about CNN coverage. Not a particular fan.

    Oh its baked in the cake that Republicans will take over House.
    Senate will be close.The race i care about most is Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania.
    He has been behind the entire race, but i hope somehow he can pull it out.
