Republican Economics as Social Darwinism

So says Robert Reich on his blog recently.  I strongly recommend you read it.  In fact, you should read him everyday, for he clearly articulates what our nations economic problems are, and how to fix them.  In case you fear that he may be too dry (economics, yawn), he can also be funny.

  2. dogmeat - interesting article. I esp. liked how Thaler summed up his points:
    "The question comes down to whether we want a society in which the rich take an ever-increasing share of the pie, or prefer to return to conditions that allow all classes to anticipate an increasing standard of living. Demanding that the rich get a tax cut as a condition for tax relief for others is simply elitist. Tea Partiers, take note."
