  • My husband asked if it was easier for smaller countries to have universal health care for all their citizens. Not being an economist, I didn't have a good answer for him other than "Well then either we find a way to cover everybody or we break into three or more countries."
    But I'd like your help on this.

  • Henry Kravis is the epitome of crassness. Greenwald exposes greed gone mad. I hope this gets more exposure. Nobody I know is anti-business . We are just anti-bad business. And Kravis sinks to the bottom of the barrel in my book of thieves.

  • True- we don't have a bill number, but we also don't have anyone in D.C. watching the committees.
    There are straight-shooters out there (Dorgan, Tester, McCaskil, Sanders....) who might dedicate a staff member part-time.

  • The winter of Discontent

    He says:

    as long as monetary fixes take the place of "hard work" by elected officials on issues like education and trade, and the Fed does nothing to dispel the perception of itself as "keeper of the flame of national purpose," the destructive boom/bust cycles will worsen.

    Right on, this is the issue, they are moving fantasy money around versus being an econony of real goods and services production.

  • This might shock you but Milton Friedman called labor arbitrage a subsidy

    I really found that one interesting for while I think his work on fiscal policy is interesting, I don't subscribe to much of what he advanced, yet even from the free enterprise perspective he was saying labor subsidies (in effect) skew the results.

  • If there are any bugs or something about this site you just find annoying or not easy to use, please leave a comment so I can look into it.

    This is a brand new site so surely there are features missing and bugs to be found.

    I could use your help and feedback really lets me know.

  • When responding be sure to:



    1.  Not change the subject line so you are commenting on someone else's
    post and not starting a new topic



    2.  Remove the message you are responding to in your new reply.   If
    you do not do this then the entire content, including the email address
    of the sender

         is posted onto the forum and you will duplicate the very comment
    that you are replying to.  Go to: 
    http://www.economicpopulist.org/?q=node/39

        to see what I mean.  I edited out one post already.    I don't
    think I can completely predit (which I'm doing) the mail before
    automatically reposting

        to catch all of this.  The list itself must kind of pay attention
    that they are posting automatically to a blog.



    Kim,



       Beyond trying to work out the bugs so this looks nice, automatically
    enables discussion threads to be posted to a public forum and
    automatically

       puts them into a searchable database, I'll look around to see which
    else I can find to more integrate other websites so we can generate
    more members

       and traffic to each other's main work and efforts.   



       Another thing to consider is using openID.

  • The RSS should be just raw RSS 2.0. I'll assume that's this feed popped up because you are using bloglines as your news aggregator.
    What I'm thinking of adding is the ability to pull in selected feeds of authors for reposting automatically and comments. This is a TBD and it depends on how authors on other sites have their RSS feeds set plus I need permission to in essence repost their writing via RSS on this site.

    A couple of things, reposting, which is to repost your story on this site is amazingly easy. It should be a simply copy and paste of your original blog post. into the text box, no reformatting. The copy and paste commands should bring along your underlying XHTML tags.

    Then, if you notice in the first right column, all of these blog articles have a little "b" by them, which means you can blog on that blog article by simply clicking.

    To create a blog post you must register. If you're on this list, use the exact email if you register.

    I have a poll on the front page asking for site feedback.

  • > Let's focus on RSS functionality and your email posting for a start

    I clicked on the little feeder icon, and it brought up Bloglines as the
    first RSS feed (which I use) so I added it, and now we shall see if things
    get fed ok...

  • Bob,
     
    Agreed.  WORDPRESS is a bit behind the curve- but then I didn't know
    where I was going when I started this.  Your method of leading people to blogs via email
    may be a breakthrough.
     
    Let's focus on  RSS functionality and your email posting for a start

  • But, I posted it because I know this information is true from a series of recent House Science Committee Congressional Hearings. Are Our Universities Ours? covers one hearing which exposes some of this.

    I don't know who this person either, is but the quotes and video clips are clearly authentic. He lists his sources in the video.
