    Free markets work better than managed economies. This has been known since Adam Smith's time. Attempts by the government to manage the economy will only suppress growth and development.

    Spain has a government, PM Pedro Sanchez, who is also the secretary general of the Socialist Workers' Party, leads a minority government, that's not "no government."

    I said kinda tongue in cheek that one reason the economy took off for Clinton is because he and congress were so busy fighting each other that they didn't have time to screw the public. ;)

    They economy tanked under him too. DOT.com bubble burst leaving millions wondering where their investments and retirement accounts went. Social Security chest was robbed so Clinton could claim a booming economy. Its all a conspiracy.

    The "free market" today is all about letting millions of legal and illegal workers in so they can all compete with each other and jeff bezos can pay them $6 an hour.Government isn't the answer but neither is the "free market".

    You forgot Trump. The backstabber will never build the wall and he knows it. Him and his billionaire buddies want an open border, and they will have it. He sure puts on a good show though.

    Yeah, the majority of the boom was the dot.com bubble.

    The article is over 2 years old and describes a different minority government - one led by a guy who had been PM for four years & would remain PM for another two. A typically stupid premise with lots of cherry picking to suit the argument.

    The economy turned around before Clinton took office, so it had nothing to do with him. Bush lost the elections because of it anyway. Every iniquity we have today and are imposing on the world from the liberal social policies, GMO's, and the loss of the free press to 6 corporation started the first 2 yeas of the Clinton regime.

    That was when the Democrats controlled congress and Bill felt free to indulge in all his abominations one after the other, including the bombing of Belgrade. This is when Putin realized Washington was out of control, and that they better start rebuilding their military and fast.

    If you want me to leave America, then you'll have to make me. I doubt you have what it takes though.

    But didn’t you say that free markets work better than managed economies? In the OP you made it sound like 18.9% unemployment is a great thing!
    You want to live in a country that is not managed at all? Move to Somalia! That’s the ultimate nirvana for anarchists.

    Yes, I did. How you interpreted that statement as hating America is puzzling to say the least.

    No, I didn't.

    Somalia has had a central government for decades. It's located in Mogadishu. Incidentally, that's where the majority of Somalia's dysfunction and violence takes place. But in tribal Somililand, where the central government exercises effectively no influence, it is relatively peaceful and stable. So Somalia actually proves the exact opposite of what you think it proves. How ironic.
