Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The Seven Cardinal Virtues of Equitable Growth

    1. Take the dual mandate seriously – full employment is as critical as stable inflation.
    2. Boost both public and private investment, particularly in capital goods and education.
    3. Focus economy on value-adding sectors rather than value-subtracting ones.
    4. Tax carbon, as of yesterday.
    5. More immigration.
    6. Improve equality of opportunity, by improving equality of result if needs be.
    7. Better and probably bigger government – private sectors prone to market failure are growing larger and faster than most.

    So I guess the next step will be that the Senate pass a bill that gives ObamaCare twice as much funding as it needs. Then the reasonable compromise in conference will be to fund everything at current law.
