Re: Values Added: Winter Is Coming (Michelle Goldberg & Conn Carroll)

Ummmm no. I was arguing that when government tries to subsidize a sector it is impossible not to enrich a few super wealthy elites. Big difference.

Re: Horse and Zebra Edition (Tim Fernholz & Timothy Carney)

Carney killed Fernholz on MF Global.

Re: Downgrade (Mark Kleiman & Peter Cohan)

I am actually a big fan of Kleiman. Both his academic work and bheads performances. Normally. Probably why I was so disappointed in the diavlog.

Re: Downgrade (Mark Kleiman & Peter Cohan)

worthless session. total leftist circle jerk. I stopped when Cohan said Citizens United was to blame for Washington's focus on debt instead of jobs. Stupidest thing ever said on bloggingheads.

Re: Quality Control (Conn Carroll & Noah Kristula-Green)

The Democrats first fixed the SGR formula in their original legislaiton and then they took it out. The only reason they did so was because they could not find a way to pay for it. But it is still...

Re: What Is There To Say? (Glenn Loury & Brink Lindsey)

Re: The Year in Politics (Ben Smith & Dave Weigel)

Obama will cruise to an easy victory in California in 2012. It will not even be close. Even if unemployment is at 15%. Government unions own the Golden State. No GOP candidate will ever win any...

Re: The Year in Politics (Ben Smith & Dave Weigel)

Re: Polite Edition (Matthew Yglesias & Dan Drezner)
