It's Mass Hysteria!

Dane Stangler at Kauffman's Growthology blog captures the feeling of our historic times:
But what does it feel like to live through a historically significant structural change? Well, it turns out that it feels pretty historic. There are headlines we probably never thought we'd see ("Detroit's Fate Sealed in West Wing"). There are government deficits the size of which few probably ever bothered to even consider ($1 trillion!). And while we may not yet be at the point of a Ghostbusters-style apocalypse ("Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!"), some things seem downright batty. What were the Vegas odds eight months ago on Paul Krugman turning against Obama
What state of the world are we in when Bill Murray becomes the voice of reason and sanity?

  1. F.A. Hayek warned us about Carl Schramm’s Tyranny: Mises Warned us of Carl Shramm’s/Dane Stangler’s Post Office

    “[Socialists] promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office.”” –Ludwig Von Mises predicting what the Kauffman Foundation would become after seven years of tryannical, corporate-CEO, personal-profiteering, anti-intellectual, anti-entrepreneurial Schrammenomics.

    “Those fighting for free enterprise and free competition do not defend the interests of those rich today. They want a free hand left to unknown men who will be the entrepreneurs of tomorrow…” –Ludwig Von Mises talking about why Carm Schramm goes to the $ 3,995.00/head Milken Institute to address his fellow corporate-statists on Kauffman’s dime, instead of funding innovators, true academics, entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship, and inventors who are losing their homes and businesses as the eocnomy withers after seven lonmg years of Schrammenomics and Schramm funnels himself and his growthology buzzword-bloggers millions from the Kauffman endowment (which was meant to go to entrepreneurs, true academics who are not afraid to quote Hayek and Mises, and innovators), while pretending to serve the innovators and entrepreneurs Schramm opposes in his characterless actions and by saying one thing while doing another.
