The U.S. government stumbled headlong on Friday toward spending cuts that could dampen the economy and curb military readiness, after President Barack Obama and congressional leaders failed to find an alternative budget plan.
A one-size fits all economic theory, like supple-side or the Keynesian formula, will not work. We need a more comprehensive approach like the Simpson-Bowles paper to solve our economic mess.
That will be painful, and I wonder if we are up to it.
Companies demand more and more out of us, placing unrealistic demands that ultimately hurt families at the core. Incomes drop as taxes and insurance premiums rise. Public education falters due to harsh state and federal mandates.
And as a result, middle-class Americans are the ones who suffer.
Keynesian economics made America the greatest power the world had ever seen. That was the conventional wisdom about 50 years ago. At that time, most students — this writer included — tended to accept the prevailing theories of every field of study. Keynes was right about anything dealing with economics; Freud was right about psychology, and so on.

They are troglodytes who want to make money out of further exploiting the hoi polloi by curtailing the intervention of the federal government, all in the guise of implementing the intentions of the founding fathers.
