What I love is that this hypothesis is completely testable, and no one who spouts it bothers to check the numbers.

We've tried it twice on a grand scale, and it's failed both times.

Prickly came back a while ago, IIRC, and he wasn't happy with the way he was treated.   :sad:
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."

Ohh!  Also, you know, they could RAISE THE TAXES on outsourced labor and materials.  That would make them keep jobs at home, too!

It's about as simple and effective as deregulating everything. :lulz:
