    OK, BR: Great discussion. About Socialism: I have gone on record in 2008 that Socialism American style (private profits, socialized losses) was the way to ruin for our economy. Now, the Socialism I was taught in school(s) behind the Iron Curtain (1948-1969) was to be a mere bridge between the wretched, moribund Capitalism system as practiced in the West and the luminous Communist system. Khrushchev plotted the course of USSR and assured us that “by late 1980′s” the peace loving peoples of the USSR would be enjoying full Communism. Hmmmmm… We always considered the Scandinavian countries as fully capitalist countries (which they are) with and elaborate social safety net. Enough of this, the “kids” of OWS have my sympathy because they seem to understand, instinctively that there is something WRONG in our country today and they too want their country back just like the Tea Party at the beginning, before they somehow became co-opted by unscrupulous politicians.

    Barry: why do you think infrastructure build up is the answer? Japan has been building infrastructure for 20 years to get out of its funk and it hasn’t worked. Japan has the most pristine roads, bridges, and tunnels I have ever seen anywhere. Why do you think doing the same in the USA will have a economic result different from Japan. Yes, it provides work, but is the future going to be based on the infrastructure model of the past? Malinvestment is malinvestment whether it builds roads or houses.
