American Nobel Prize laureate for Economics George A. Akerlof lashed out at the
government of US President George W. Bush, calling it the "worst ever" in American history, the online site of the weekly Der Spiegel magazine reported Tuesday.
"I think this is the worst government the US has ever had in its more than 200 years of history. It has engaged in extradordinarily irresponsible policies not only in foreign policy and economics but also in social and environmental policy," said the 2001 Nobel Prize laureate who teaches economics at the University of California in Berkeley.
"This is not normal government policy. Now is the time for (American) people to engage in civil disobedience. I think it's time to protest - as much as possible," the 61-year-old scholar added.
Well, shit, I knew that. Look at the financial headlines: London's Financial Times, for instance:
A new survey suggests that central bankers are beginning to ponder whether it is in their interest to carry on buying dollars...
That means they think our dollars are turning into funny money. This war has had drastic consequences all over the board for the United States. We really need to get Bush turned around, and the only was to do it is bang on your Congressional Rep and your Senator.
Bang bang bang. These people have thick heads, so don't be afraid to send them letters and emails over and over and over.
Thats what I'm doing.
