Bernie Sanders & Free Colleges
Contrarian posted a topic in US Federal PoliticsOne of the things that I have noticed is one of my favorite populists, Bernie Sanders ranting over the years about "Free Colleges, Cancel Debt." I don't watch TV that often but when Bernie starts pointing the finger, I rather watch robots on CNBC. I am willing to listen to defenders of this idea, of free colleges, I don't pretend to be an expert on North American schooling system, the number of tests that one had to do in some parts of Europe in order to make it to higher education, allowed a certain percentage to be paid by the government via a bursary, that's all I know. It is/was affordable that way there. ---> but a question would be, where is Bernie going to get the money to fund this if a lot of people want to go to college for free? Looking forward to reasonable responses. 😄
15 Citizen Community Globally, Political Philosophy for Human Future By Exegesisme 1 I just reflected the possible foreign policy of US tea party, for it might take more power of US in future. 2 basically its goals are lower debts and lower taxes. 3 positive and effective foreign policy on these two goals could only be citizen community globally. 4 by the phrase citizen community globally, I mean US successful private citizens would play larger role internationally, and US foreign policy would at least encourage this tendency to partially replace the function of governmental foreign relationship. 5 the tendency of citizen community globally would be a strong force for global peace, for the private citizens do not have the power to use troop for their goals. 6 as an example, maybe an US entrepreneur would teach entrepreneurs of other nations how to deal with the relationships with their governments, and force the change of government with more rational and prepared power. 7 this is a good way of more peaceful, more effective, and less expensive for a good national and international order. 8 I believe there are few US entrepreneurs having been preparing to get job done this way. 9 if US politics develops along the way, it would be benefits both to US and the whole world. 10 Cruz is a person prepared to play a role on the way.
The Economic Ignorance of the Modern Right
August1991 posted a topic in Business and EconomyG&MMeanwhile, our money supply (however measured) has increased by 30% to 50% over the past four years. (Statscan) IOW, the Bank of Canada has printed tons of new cash in the past few years and inflation is still non-existent. (I won't even bother to post links to US data but I feel confident that they would support my argument.) Then again, why not: 16 Nov 2011IOW, the US Fed has printed trillions of new dollars, given them to Obama and he spent them. Yet, what is the US inflation rate? Bloomberg----- The meme of the North American Right (to pick a few examples: Harper, Steyn, Krauthammer, NRO, SDA, Coyne. Terence Corcoran, even me etc) would have us believe that printing too much money leads to inflation, and having too much government debt leads to oblivion. (In general, I suspect that the North American Right believes government can do little good, and it certainly can't deliver "free lunches".) Well, it's been four years now of printing mad money, and there's still no inflation.
