Give 'em hell!
tools and tearshit 'em with the unchangeables and see them wept in their places
good job mike.
Mike,You consistently out class all the others there... and have the best handle on the macro out of all the investors/traders they typically have on....Fox needs you to put together a show on one of their properties where you can get back to some real macro-economic analysis with guests and some debate.... it would be the best show on cable right now!Resp,
Thanks Matt. It's not going to happen on Fox. I pitched the idea to them several time and even went to the Exec VP with it and he pretty much told me flat it, it's not going to happen. Fox is not interested even though I agree with you that it would be the best show on any business news channel anywhere.Problem is, I pitched it to CNBC, too, a couple of years ago and have been trying to get MSNBC interested, along with RT and recently, Current, but to no avail. I must be a bad salesman. :(I'm gonna keep on trying in 2012.Happy New Year!
Mike, this is going to happen as soon as the execs see interest in MMT analysis building. You already have the economic background and media experience. Who else is going to take the lead in doing this? When they are ready to enter that field, you are the logical first choice.It would be interesting to see a CNBC show with you and John debating these issues since you both understand MMT and approach it from angles different enough to generate a good give and take. Now that would get some heads exploding. I'll bet it would rocket to the top of the charts in no time.
Have you guys seen this?Who is this character Kotlikoff?http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-12-30/start-saving-or-brace-for-u-s-decline-commentary-by-laurence-kotlikoff.html
Kotlikoff is an academic that has no clue about monetary economics or a monetary economy. He thinks that the economy is like farmers putting aside feed corn for the new planting. This harvest's saving equals next years investment in planting. He thinks we are eating our seed corn.
