First, what economic analysis am I proposing, exactly?
Second, I agree entirely about the current mess being
in large measure a result of unfettered capitalism.
Third, I believe in markets that are more tightly
regulated that those in the USA were even in the
days of FDR.
Fourth, I support a highly progressive income tax,
along the lines of the rates that were in effect
when that communist Dwight Eisenhower was president.
Top rate on unearned income was 93 or 94% during
that era. (Today they'll lynch you if you talk
about even 50%.)
Oh, and by the way, I agree with the fact checking
analysis, not the punish-congress screed.
