I would highly recommend people google "Trevor Loudon" and make their own decisions about him.
That's all I'll say on the matter.
What about actual markets in predominantly rural and agricultural economies?
There is still governance, even if it's purely a barter economy.
If the IRS grabbed 100 percent of income over $1 million, the take would be just $616 billion. That’s only a third of this year’s deficit.
This year's deficit is about $750 billion. I think you're emboldened quote is a little out of date.
we have been throwing trillions of dollars at it since FDR and we are no better off now then we were then. in fact some would say we are worse off
Who would say we're worse off today than in the 1930s?
a) they prefer the significantly less free market system of Scandinavia to our current economic system
You might want to check on that again. There are Scandinavian countries with more economic liberty than the US and higher levels of economic mobility despite having secure public welfare systems that actually work, unlike in the US.
I always enjoy posts like this. Please tell me one thing. If the Democrat party advocates national health care, pro-choice, pro-union, racial equality and justice, gay marriage, college tuition support, market regulation, and all their other policies (not that they all get implemented), what do they have to add to that list to get on the left side of the political divide?
Easy. Just be as liberal as Teddy Roosevelt when it comes to corporate power.
Most of Europe demonstrates that you can achieve a stable free market by having the government in the loop.
And those markets actually benefit a wider portion of the population. Economic mobility is far greater in many parts of Europe than in the US.
There s debate as to whether a Free Market can ever truly exist at all.
Whether or not they can exist (probably not), there has never been one in the history of the world.
Markets don't appear in nature, and certainly not "free markets". To the extent that markets exist, they exist become of governance, not despite it.
I would suggest that Hawaii's strategic place in the Pacific has lead to a considerable influx of military money, military personnel and associated increase in the economy related to it
Just remember, all that "military money, military personnel and associated increase in the economy" also comes with a decrease in quality of life.
Just take a look at Fayettevlle, North Carolina. It's got all the wonderful benefits of having Fort Bragg, and yet it's one of the least desirable places to live in the entire United States. Drugs, prostitution, crime and it's entirely because of its proximity to Ft Bragg.
Having a bunch of "military money" and twenty-somethings who are away from home for the first time and have a steady paycheck for the first time could turn even paradise into a shithole.
For $51/month that landline better have unlimited long-distance. How can my cell phone have unlimited long distance (even when calling landline phones!) plus data plus texts for $40 and this poor SOB was getting drilled for $51 for inferior service?
I think it might be time to take out the big anti-trust club and beat all of the major telecoms and broadband providers about the head and neck until they are broken into little pieces and have shown they know how to behave. It appears to be the only thing they respond to.
I'm pretty sure Noah invented the weather forecast. And the litter box.
Is there multiplayer?
I agree about Hillary and her corrupt money, but do you really believe labor unions are "Marxist"? You're too big be that stupid.
collect my resume and my salary
What happens if you don't give them your salary? I've never, ever given a prospective employer my current salary. But my prospective employer days are behind me. Maybe things have changed and this is de rigueur now.
