    What often happens when unqualified people receive educational and similar benefits can be summed up in a single word:

    Failure.

    And that failure is disguised and minimized by those educators and lawmakers responsible.

    Honesty is not a virtue among those who profit from that process.

    I will do a thread for Earth Day. Shooting guns, smoking cigars, having BBQs, driving SUVs, etc. And pissing on Gaia.

    For those espousing MMT ask them “then why collect taxes?” If governments can solve all problems by simply printing money with no regard for deficits no need to finance that through taxes. Should leave them scratching their heads. Hat tip to Deutsche Bank Global Research’s Dr. Torsten Slok https://finance.yahoo.com/news/larry...000909244.html

    Yep. At some point the (MMT) money becomes valueless for international trade (don't expect anybody to take your money to buy imports) that the nation's economy implodes. Witness Germany circa 1920, Argentina late last century, and Venezuela now.
