Harsh Truth at GMU

Tyler “Hitler” Cowen, border hawk:

Plunking 500 million or a billion poor individuals in the United States most likely would destroy the goose laying the golden eggs.  [My emphasis]This sentence twists deeper into delirium with every reading. It has to be a candidate for the most insane splinter of sanity in history. (It makes me wonder whether an object the size of Jupiter, consisting of pure neutronium, colliding with Manhattan Island at 90% light speed, would most likely depress property values.)

ADDED: Caplan vs Tyler “Slave-Master” Cowen.

ADDED: Occam’s Razor remains impressively sure-footed amongst Caplan’s slipperiness.

    There’d be an NYT headline? Obviously not freighted-up with enough neutronium …

    If we posit that Hell contains the greatest concievable evils, then NYT is beyond the grasp of even that Wormwood…

    Combined with the recent OECD findings that yes Americans are Dumb [just like we told you!! Listen to your betters!!] this means the science is now settled .

    The monkeys have banged away at enough typewriters to produce The Tempest .

    It’s Settled Science .

    Classic comment “Let’s open the borders and find out.”

    I can’t comment over there, as admin recalls. I pointed out to Professor Cowen that the history of Meso-American help is they eat the boss [roast the limbs and eat them to celebrate triumph in war] when the boss is weak, then erase the boss from history. Swipples are weak incarnate.

    [The comment was “Swipple” – it’s racist. Swipple is a race. I’m not kidding].

    I agree with the commenter. Let’s open the borders, then find out. I’m a sporting type.

    The classic retort, “Let’s open your border and ‘find out.’.”

    The most important thing presently is They Failed . They didn’t open the borders.

    They failed epic on Obamacare roll out.

    They may be about to fail on debt ceiling increase. Jack Lew said this morning he won’t have expenditures meet revenue. We take in 12X the amount of revenue needed to service debt.
    But Jack White collar gangbanger Lew says he won’t cut to service debt, or as he put it prioritize one payment over another.

    Well Bernanke said he won’t monetize the debt either.

    It may be of note that in 2009 the net wealth of the united states was determined to be $350 Trillion. So there is a lot of ruin more in the nation.

    It may be democracy expressed thru the Tea faction that puts a halt to the insanity. Now it’s quite true this may cause the edifice to collapse. But as things stand today Oct 10th 2013, it’s democracy vs. the Cathedral.

    Mock away.

    Using democracy against the Cathedral is like a foot soldier trying to suicide-bomb a tank with a single frag grenade.

    @VXXC

    Then explain what is really happening.

    Please explain also where democracy goes, if sovereignty is conserved [if you can call anarcho-tyranny sovereignty] what about the democratic impulse? And long traditions back 1000 years?

    Tea is most definitely democracy. We’ll see where it goes, but that’s what it is..

    Bluntly Moldbug fears the people, as do many Cathedral functionaries. They’re right.

    What’s desired is the Just King of the Court Party.

    Fantasyland.

    The failure of Immigration this summer is most definitely one for the people. No question.

    You realize any Monarch would appeal to the people, as would a dictator? Right?

    The problem is not that Bernanke will monetize the debt, but that monetizing the debt will not produce any effects.

    Democracy, not the monetizing of the debt.
