i feel like it's the biggest buzzword of this presidential election:
and with a country $16 trillion in debt, that's understandable.
so this podcast via freakonomics caught my eye:
it's only 5 minutes long, if you want to give it a listen.
here are a couple key points they focus on:
1. the president's ability to control the economy is actually very limited
2. being a successful CEO is "enormously different" than handling political finances
the comment feed on the podcast actually made for some interesting reading from people who both agreed and disagreed with those points...and a quality, coherent comment feed is surprisingly hard to come by, isn't it?
now, remembering my strong feelings about hateful political discussion,
i want to know your thoughts:
what effect does the president REALLY have on the economy?
