The economic journalist and consultant behind Shadow Stats has an absolutely off the wall interview in a mainstream business publication that begins reasonably enough, but ends sounding like a cross between Ludwig von Mises and the Road Warrior.
It’s worrisome when guys in pinstripes who went to Ivy League schools begin to make the kooks talking about the Illuminati at gun shows sound like the moderate wing of the movement. These are very tough times for so many Americans. I hope our country somehow pulls through. But I fear that it will get much worse before it gets better. There is so much that is unsustainable right now; it can’t go on like this indefinitely.
I try to count my many blessings in times like these–a job, a great family, freedom, my education, my faith–but it’s so downright depressing to see so many good, hardworking people caught up in a storm beyond their control, while the worst of the worst, the least productive and most parasitical in DC and Wall Street, are living the high life on a combination of government bailouts and central bank sponsered hustles.
