progress--you are very slowly getting it-it takes a long time to drill new oil fields-and we have a lot of it in the ground-technology is bringing more supply than we ever dreamed about -supply and demand matter--and the monetary policy is most important-eureka
though you are still caught up in that old ideological passion--"evil Oil companies "manipulation of supply and demand" "the wars" and of course the "wealthy"
One day you will wake up from your slumber and realize the economic debate isn't about about "fairness" which is both subjective and ideological--it is simply about sound basic economics--
'fairness" isn't about revenue XG--ABC's Charlie Gibson asked candidate Obama if he would raise capital gains taxes even if, as in the past, that brought in less revenue to the federal government.--Yes, said Obama. "I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness."
I know what I don't like which I suppose I will call it 'unfair'
I think it's unfair that those who are 'connected' can buy Congress people to enhance their hold on any given issue, in this case 'unegulated Oil futures purchases'.
That is unfair to us peons..............
