Ferguson called for what he called “radical” measures. “I can’t emphasize strongly enough the need for radical fiscal reform to restore the incentives for work and remove the incentives for idleness.” He praised “really radical reform of the sort that, for example, Paul Ryan [the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee] has outlined in his wonderful ‘Roadmap’ for radical, root-and-branch reform not only of the tax system but of the entitlement system” and “unleash entrepreneurial innovation.” Otherwise, Ferguson warned: “Do you want to be a kind of implicit part of the European Union? I’d advise you against it.” This was greeted by hearty applause from a crowd that included Barbra Streisand and her husband James Brolin. “Depressing, but fantastic,” Streisand told me afterward, rendering her verdict on the session. “So exciting. Wonderful!” Brolin’s assessment: “Mind-blowing.”

Our corporate tax rate, on a worldwide competitive basis, is just not competitive. Taiwan is lowering their rate to 20 to 15 percent in order to stay competitive with Singapore. These countries have made it their job to attract industry. You don’t get that sense here in the United States.”

Of course not. This administration's top priority is to loot the treasury and fool the gullible.

“Looses” is not a word.

Looses is often used incorrectly for the word loses, as you are aware. However, there could be a correct usage for the word "Looses" :

"battle - definition of battle from YourDictionary.com ... honors. scene: This chap was the old archer, the veteran who looses the fire arrow to signal the charge in the early battle scene. tank ..."

Looses

The president put all his trust in the wrong economic team—an economic team that didn’t understand what was happening.

His theroretical-acedemic economists have had a brief space walk at the expense of the nation and most of the world. Its now time to get the practical economists back to work. That's not what Obama wants but what Obama wants will never function realistically..

It stands to reason that a free economy will go in cycles. A command economy will go AWOL.

If Brolin and Streisand are for it, I’m going to have to rethink this capitalism thing.

I doubt that will be necessary. I think they were just inebriated and didn’t really comprehend that they were listening to reason.

“If you’re asking if the United States is about to become a socialist state, I’d say it’s actually about to become a European state, with the expansiveness of the welfare system and the progressive tax system like what we’ve already experienced in Western Europe,” Harvard business and history professor Niall Ferguson declared during Monday’s kickoff session, offering a withering critique of Obama’s economic policies, which he claimed were encouraging laziness.

“The curse of longterm unemployment is that if you pay people to do nothing, they’ll find themselves doing nothing for very long periods of time,” Ferguson said

First Paul McCartney, now there’s Jimmy Buffet & Bra bra. I’m sure Ozzy will soon have a reliably intellectual opinion to share. Shut up and sing. Better yet, just shut up!

He praised “really radical reform of the sort that, for example, Paul Ryan [the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee] has outlined in his wonderful ‘Roadmap’ for radical, root-and-branch reform not only of the tax system but of the entitlement system” and “unleash entrepreneurial innovation.”

I'm hoping more and more each day that Paul Ryan will run in 2012.
