I think Paffy covered this pretty well. Economics is more like Chemistry than Physics, in my opinion. There are lots of laws with "except if's" attached to them.



It is a law of economics that increasing the supply of something will decrease the average selling price of that widget...except, for example, if the government enforces price supports.

Economics has lots of laws which are quite firm...but they require an implied understanding that lots of unstated conditions apply. This is actually true in many of the natural sciences. Biology, Physics, Chemistry, their study can always be attacked for containing imperfect interpretations of reality. That doesn't mean that we cannot attempt to understand them.

All you are really claiming is that there is no way to ever decide whether one tax structure or another is better for unemployment, economic growth, low inflation, low interest rates, high home ownership, etc.. and that we must all rely on how we "feel" rather than what an objective study of the facts can reveal.

I find that logic to be flawed, but also in perfect coordination with your worldview. Nothing matters to you except what you feel is true, facts be damned.
Actually no. I am saying that outcome is never pre-determined.

All you have is past experience and statistics. Which IF the economy
were a static system, might actually work. But it ISNT a static system.
It is dynamic in just about every way that can be imagined.

Obviously you shouldn't try to discern what makes me happy, as you are blurting bullshit without knowing any facts....


Typical Chiteng.

Well, I am sure he wants to post what is on his mind or his opinions, jsut like most people here. Maybe cause a little conversation or bring something to people's attention. Agree with him or disagree, he still does those things.

Pot, meet kettle.

As far as I'm concerned, you're just Arka without the sexy accent.

Why should I ignore you? It's more fun to point out what a fucktard you are. If your pussy is beginning to hurt, feel free to use your own suggestion. Otherwise, feel free to take a trip to one of the President Bush Libraries... I'd suggest the one at College Station, it's ready to go. Maybe you'll actually see what a REAL president was like, and learn what ANYTHING means.

Thinking you can outlast or convince Chiteng on an issue is beyond folly. We've found your heroic flaw perhaps Drysdale. Chiteng's perhaps the only person on the board I simply don't see the point in arguing directly with. You can be correct, but you can't possibly win.

Hell, I'm having fun seeing how much a tard the dipshit can make of himself... Ask Beal, my stubbornness in the face of even Arka is legendary. And believe me, this guy's a poor second to Arka when it comes to being a fucktard. He's barely a dryhumptard compared to Arka. And I ragged that Gallic galoot for over a year.

I just hope you have a lot of time on your hands. Arka seems to have enough of a temper to burn himself out periodically. I've always had the feeling Chiteng always posts with a self-satisfied smirk.

All I can say is if such a marathon were to begin please do your best to make it entertaining.

I'll try, but there's not much there to work with.

Ahh ....

Yet another poster thinks that they will 'teach me the error of my ways'.

Well EM old timers....think we can get any odds on this one?

What is so amusing, is that 'I' dont require Drysdale do anything at all =)

Yet somehow, live and let live is simply anathema to these people.

And I don't "require" you to hop around like a retarded monkey on crack. You just seem to do so for my amusement. Dance monkey dance!
