hey go on Price is Right and get a truck you would be trilled.
I didn't say a damn word about the tax plan nor did I ask you how you felt it would impact you personally. Now did I?

BTW, you can't buy a new 3/4 ton truck for $25,000.00. You MIGHT get a stripped 6 cyl Silvarado for that, maybe. And that's based on TODAY'S prices and not 10 years from now.

Additional BTW, you PULL campers, RV's you drive.

The loan officers who wouldn't write crappy loans, got fired.
What motivated the behavior of the banks, was the desire to profit, that's what collapsed the system, the profit motive.
That's what the market system does, it runs OK for a little while and then it implodes. Regulation can lengthen the cycle, put more time between the major failures, and reduce the severity.
The collapse was caused by reducing regulation, and the development of an unregulated market in credit default swaps.

What "sources", the IMF? An organization that's involved in cheating poor countries out of trillions? https://www.democracynow.org/2004/11...onomic_hit_man

Using the Republican President as a reference point might be a strategy you might want to rethink.

And your Democracy Now article talks about the evil US, not the IMF.

And I edited my last post to include the fact that your Democracy Now article discusses the evil things the US does. It has nothing to do with the IMF.

They both seem fine to me. Trump's degree is in economics (in case you didn't happen to know).

Wrong:

AMY GOODMAN: How closely did you work with the World Bank?

JOHN PERKINS: Very, very closely with the World Bank. The World Bank provides most of the money thatís used by economic hit men, it and the I.M.F.

Wrong:
You realize he has a science degree. His claims about his economic adventures are questioned by most sources.
