Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge.

Sounds like he has adopted the implicit policy of Yahoo comments.
Anyway I take Mr. Ritholtz’s policy as a challenge, so here goes:
This author is apparently unaware his innane ideas on the economy have been discredited ever since Adam Smith wrote “The Road to Serfdom”. If we follow this plan the national debt will soon exceed $1 million per family, forcing our daughters to sell themselves to Russian energy magnates to pay interest on US Treasuries. Don’t you get it? The so-called stimulus failed!! Thats why we have 20% unemployment, $10 a gallon gas, a tanked stock market and government thugs trying to TAKE AWAY MY GUNS!!! But this is to be expected from Commie-Socialist dog-walkers like Ritholtz.
Desi Arnez, where are you now that we need you?
Whew. Not satisfied with my effort. Ritholtz sets the bar pretty high.
