8/6     How many of you liberals have read The Road to Serfdom
        by Nobel laureate Hayek?
        \_ if he's not a physicist, a chemist, a biologist/medical researcher
           or a writer he's not a nobel laureate in my book.  the econ and
           peace "prizes" are a joke.
           \_ alas, so are you.
              \- er i think you can have issues with the literature
                 prize, but the econbn prize is pretty solid, although
                 prize, but the econ prize is pretty solid, although
                 there are trends. name a couple of econ nobels you
                 would revoke. --psb
              \_ why bother posting 4 word, 1 liner drivel like this?  does
                 this sort of post really make you feel smart or something?
                 \_ yes, does questioning people's motivation make you feel
                    smart or something?

2/19    "There is no scenario under which you would claim the government was
        not involved ... -tom"
        \_ Apparently there is no scenario under which you would agree
           government policy has a hand in creating financial crises.
           My point isn't about getting rid of the government itself
           but the banking system supported by governments around the world.

1/28    Pork bill passes the House, no R's vote for it.
        \_ which pork bill?
        \_ Yay, fair and balanced NPR:
           Also, GOP apparently unclear on definition of pork.
           \_ Even Chris Matthews called it one big earmark.

10/27   In housing markets, why is high prices associated with high number of
        transactions, and low prices associated with low number of
        transactions?  From my simplistic view using supply and demand curves,
        the prices and the number of transactions should be independent.  Thx.
        \_ Doesn't that indicate that more people buy houses as investments,
           rather than as a place to live in?  Sad sad world.
