The experiment has been going on since at least the Middle Ages. I don't know about you, but 600 years is a pretty good experiment. Does it sometimes result in a meltdown and banking [more]

Again, show that to me. Give me the links where "catastrophe" is "very probably" the outcome - where the scientists are predicting the collapse of civilization with a very high confidence level.

Re: They're always wrong but still get airtime

Take, for example, population flows here in the U.S. In the 1930's, some of the largest cities in the United States included Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh. They were five of the top ten largest cities, and had a combined [more]

We are ALREADY conducting an uncontrolled experiment, called "Fractional Reserve Banking" and THAT is working well? No.

Re: Those lazy, good for nothing unemployed

Rather than debate this each time an "emergency" bill is needed shouldn't we just have a fair policy and stick to it? Shouldn't we discuss why it is a fair policy to change the rules when more people are out of work?

Re: Reestablishing the Middle Class

Federal Reserve Policy has played a major role in this distortion without having any measurable positive impact on employment.

They aren't coping. I know a former examiner. They will grant your patent if you are persistent enough.

Re: Obamacare Costs Continue to Plummet

It would be interesting indeed to find out where and how Morgan Stanley got their numbers, and why they seem to be at odds with NH's own figures.

So, not much of a deterrent. It is only a deterrent if it deters them. Given the competitive nature of this market, are they going to not ship features they believe are crucial because they are worried about Apple having a fit? No.

Re: Those lazy, good for nothing unemployed

The real issue is how long should tax payers provide unemployment? Also, a good question is should person X get some large number of weeks of benefits just because the unemployment rate is above 7 or 8% but person Y gets only a small number of [more]
