Let it never be said we don’t have a serious hill to climb to find our way out of the political, financial and social mess we have.
Larry Summers makes the case HERE for the deregulation of the financial marketplace not playing a meaningful role in the financial collapse. I don’t know how you can arrive at such a conclusion without ignoring the obvious relationships between all the public data available on this topic. Given he was party to having engineered this mess speaks volumes to his credibility. Summers may well know a lot but I sure wish Obama hadn’t picked him to serve.
Maybe it isn’t possible to have highly informed persons in a given field without partisan ideology as part of the package. I don’t have a PhD in anything but I’m working on my PhD in life. One thing I’ve learned is don’t trust persons with a PhD. Especially ones with a PhD from Harvard University. Their collective track record is crap.
