“Economists can’t agree on what’s behind the malaise.” (Maclean’s, September 26, p.34)

September 27, 2011

Last week I discussed my psychological study of the American economic malaise at the third annual meeting of the academy of  behavioral economics at UCLA. I came back a lot more frustrated by Barak Obama’s misguided attitude about America that causes us lose jobs than by my attempt at navigating airports that are designed by architects that don’t understand aviation or the behavior of passengers.

Economists can’t agree on what’s behind the economic malaise because what’s behind it is an innocent statement by Obama two years ago. He said, “America has no manifest destiny. The USA is just like any other country.”  Holly Moses, if you had convinced Einstein that he was just an ordinary guy, would he be able to reinvent physics? No, of course not. Well, Obama convinced Americans that they don’t have Yankee ingenuity and that they should act like Greece, South Africa, Spain, Kenya, Ireland, Portugal, France, Mexico…we are just like all the other countries, fellows! Obama, you ignorant man, you have given us the biggest kick in our cultural pants since Bush’s statement, “I suspend Capitalism to save Capitalism’ or Wilson’s “I wage a war to end all wars.” We now act like all the other countries. Thanks, Mr. President for demoting the one great nation on Earth that has given humanity everything worthwhile on planet Earth. Another four years with you Mr. President and Americans will move to Saudi Arabia where the oil is plenty to guarantee their employment.
