"Reforms naturally caused wages to stagnate." The Depression hit BEFORE any of those measures were taken!! Hello!! Does this register??
The Depression hit at end of Wilson's term. The war time command-and-control economy and Federal Reserve's policy of monetizing 20% of war time costs resulted in a great deal of malinvestment.
AFTER the crash is when those measures were taken. That's why the depression was so short-lived despite being such a shock in first year.Bill Maher delivered a blistering critique of modern libertarianism and the insanity of it. I don't normally watch him but this one seems to hit the nail on the head
"Go back to gold standard." Yeah, but not the gold-exchange standards. The "exchange" part refers to foreign reserves of paper currency that they are allowed to treat just like they are gold.
The classical gold standard that was operational from 1873-1914 was pretty good. Other than that I think competing currencies would help.European officials have struck a deal that could radically change the banking industry's bonus culture.

If you want more purchasing power, you need more supply.
Why not a $100 minimum wage? Why not a $15 dollar minimum wage? It's absurd.
What you don't grasp is that real wages don't rise when minimum wage is artificially raised. Less entry level jobs (marginal jobs) are created. Some of the existing entry level employees lose their jobs.
The "poor and middle class" aren't prosepering in Europe with higher minimum wages.Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky gives the Tea Party's response to President Obama's 2013 State of the Union Address.

I just looked it up. Brazil uses ~2 million barrels per day of oil. That's ~730 million barrels per year. That's a lot of oil.
Go see Times of London article on gun-running between Libya, Syria, Turkey, and U.S. government.
There is an excellent article over at Anti-War today that details exactly what Rand Paul was referencing. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that supports the gun-running hypothesis.
It looks to me like Clinton and Petraeus did an end-run around the White House on this one.
Go read the article and stop being such a party drone.
The story Rand Paul was referencing was in Times of London. There were a lot of details provided there. See the website Anti-war.conn. Justin Raimondo has an article there today that goes into depth what was going on between Syria, Libya, Turkey, and the U.S. State Department.Mike Malloy plays excerpts from Sen. Rand Paul's questioning of Sec. of State Hillary Clinton at the 1/23/13 Benghazi hearings in which Paul told Clinton that he would've fired Clinton if he were p...
Oh, please, don't act like the Democrat party isn't controlled by AIPAC. Foreign policy doesn't change when D's are in office. They only vigorously debate at the margins of the same basic foreign policy ideology.
Stop giving the Democrat party a pass.
You should be ashamed to be a state-worhipping tool that thinks the govt. should have a monopoly on firearms.
You should also be ashamed of blaming guns (inanimate objects) for crimes.
I have noticed that all of these mass shootings occurred in gun-free zones. It is precisely because concealed carry is not permitted that they become mass shootings instead of one dead assassin. This is too much for a statist to understand though."It's no secret that Republicans by and large are not fans of President Obama's new push for laws aimed at reducing gun violence. Most in Washington are using traditional means to oppose him — vowi...
