As I strain my memory to find fitting words to describe Ted Rall, (Note; ‘Pomp-pouse’ head) one category always works: BIG LIARS. Did he not see that his conclusions are based on his numbers and the other guy is doing the SAME thing? Economics is a ‘pure science’; everything works if you accept the assumptions.
Actually, I admire the guy. He actually gets PAID to try to pull his stunts.
