Yes, for some reason, my link gets thrown back to the home page.

Try going to

Then go to economic indicators

Then go to global growth monitor

Please note the graph "Share of world Real GDP".

In the last 50 years, Asia has the highest growth rates, the Americas second, and Europe is dead last.

And yes Dan, Germany is the one decent economy in Europe. The only problem is that Europe also has the highly dysfunctional economies of France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Ireland and Portugal. Most ot the rest of Europe is somewhere in between. If there ever is an example of a country that we don't want to follow the example of, France would have to be it.

Look at the economies that have the highest rates of redistribution of wealth. These are mostly the economies of Europe. These are also the countries with the lowest growth rates. Coincidence? NOT!

You're right John. We should all just kill ourselves and let nature take back the earth and it will be like we were all never here.

IMHO, taxes are much less of an issue than spending. When we spend $13B on a single aircraft carrier, when our social safety net programs balloon out of control, something needs to be done. Solve the spending issue first, then tackle our obscenely complex tax code.

I'm sure that the stabbings that occurred which police responded to would never have occurred if only they had allowed music. IT"S ALL THE FAULT OF THE POLICE!!!!

I wouldn't call you anything but your name, but since you brought this subject up, it was responded to.

How about "height challenged"? That should fit the bill for our politically correct society.

This "parent" is in denial. The police were responding to a stabbing when this riot started. So much for the peaceful, fun-loving atmosphere.

Ironically, this parent would likely to be one of the first to sue the university or the police if their kid was injured or killed in one of these drunken rampages.
