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.

    Maybe we should send this every member of congress- eh I guess not -first we’d have to teach them to read.

    There is a reason it is called the dismal science. Physical theory has to work at the boundary, but applying the same approach to economics will turn almost any approach into mush. For example, of course you call the Efficient Market Theoryinsane by pointing out that stock prices get out of whack at times (at the boundary) but then you have to believe that you can beat the market (good luck with that as even few of our notable economists have done it). You have to feel a bit sorry for the kids who get fed this stuff.
