An interesting read since so many insist on data, and data only, as the basis for their argument.

Excellent article. Many here would do well to take it to heart.

Thanks.

Here's the essence of David Brook's claim:

"For example, we’ve had huge debates over the best economic stimulus, with mountains of data, and as far as I know not a single major player in this debate has been persuaded by data to switch sides."

Brooks implies we do not need to keep a list of Obama's Wall Street crony insiders that received taxpayer TARP bailouts, because that's useless data.

The Federal Reserve keeps interest rates ultra-low so as to get people to invest in the stock market, enriching the same securities dealing swindlers that received TARP bailouts. Keeping interests rates low also robs small savers, offering them no return on their savings accounts. No stone is ever left unturned by political swindlers.

Public focus should always be trained on the shysters funding their Diversity schemes with monies taken from the taxpayers pocket.

And by diversity schemes I assume we are speaking of investment strategies, rather than human diversity in the sociological sense, correct?
