<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Who is better informed about the policy choices facing the countryŚliberals, conservatives or libertarians? According to a Zogby International survey that I write about in the May issue of Econ Journal Watch, the answer is unequivocal: The left flunks Econ 101.

Zogby researcher Zeljka Buturovic and I considered the 4,835 respondents' (all American adults) answers to eight survey questions about basic economics. We also asked the respondents about their political leanings: progressive/very liberal; liberal; moderate; conservative; very conservative; and libertarian.

Rather than focusing on whether respondents answered a question correctly, we instead looked at whether they answered incorrectly. A response was counted as incorrect only if it was flatly unenlightened.

Consider one of the economic propositions in the December 2008 poll: "Restrictions on housing development make housing less affordable." People were asked if they: 1) strongly agree; 2) somewhat agree; 3) somewhat disagree; 4) strongly disagree; 5) are not sure.

Basic economics acknowledges that whatever redeeming features a restriction may have, it increases the cost of production and exchange, making goods and services less affordable. There may be exceptions to the general case, but they would be atypical.

Therefore, we counted as incorrect responses of "somewhat disagree" and "strongly disagree." This treatment gives leeway for those who think the question is ambiguous or half right and half wrong. They would likely answer "not sure," which we do not count as incorrect.

In this case, percentage of conservatives answering incorrectly was 22.3%, very conservatives 17.6% and libertarians 15.7%. But the percentage of progressive/very liberals answering incorrectly was 67.6% and liberals 60.1%. The pattern was not an anomaly.

The other questions were: 1) Mandatory licensing of professional services increases the prices of those services (unenlightened answer: disagree). 2) Overall, the standard of living is higher today than it was 30 years ago (unenlightened answer: disagree). 3) Rent control leads to housing shortages (unenlightened answer: disagree). 4) A company with the largest market share is a monopoly (unenlightened answer: agree). 5) Third World workers working for American companies overseas are being exploited (unenlightened answer: agree). 6) Free trade leads to unemployment (unenlightened answer: agree). 7) Minimum wage laws raise unemployment (unenlightened answer: disagree).

How did the six ideological groups do overall? Here they are, best to worst, with an average number of incorrect responses from 0 to 8: Very conservative, 1.30; Libertarian, 1.38; Conservative, 1.67; Moderate, 3.67; Li<span style='font-size: 17pt'>beral, 4.69; Progressive/very liberal, 5.26.</span>

Americans in the first three categories do reasonably well. But the left has trouble squaring economic thinking with their political psychology, morals and aesthetics.

To be sure, none of the eight questions specifically challenge the political sensibilities of conservatives and libertarians. Still, not all of the eight questions are tied directly to left-wing concerns about inequality and redistribution. In particular, the questions about mandatory licensing, the standard of living, the definition of monopoly, and free trade do not specifically challenge leftist sensibilities.

Yet on every question the left did much worse. On the monopoly question, the portion of progressive/very liberals answering incorrectly (31%) was more than twice that of conservatives (13%) and more than four times that of libertarians (7%). On the question about living standards, the portion of progressive/very liberals answering incorrectly (61%) was more than four times that of conservatives (13%) and almost three times that of libertarians (21%).

The survey also asked about party affiliation. <span style='font-size: 26pt'>Those responding Democratic averaged 4.59 incorrect answers. Republicans averaged 1.61 incorrect, and Libertarians 1.26 incorrect.</span>

Adam Smith described political economy as "a branch of the science of a statesman or legislator." Governmental power joined with wrongheadedness is something terrible, but all too common. Realizing that many of our leaders and their constituents are economically unenlightened sheds light on the troubles that surround us.

Mr. Klein is a professor of economics at George Mason University. This op-ed is based on an article published in the May 2010 issue of the journal he edits, Econ Journal Watch, a project sponsored by the American Institute for Economic Research. The article is at: http://econjwatch.org/articles/economic-...ey-of-americans (http://econjwatch.org/articles/economic-enlightenment-in-relation-to-college-going-ideology-and-other-variables-a-zogby-survey-of-americans) </div></div>

When your way of thinking is guided by a political party, rather than from independent thinking combined with actual research of facts (not just other's opinions), understanding goes by the wayside.

All of them, and thanks for your usual eloquent confirmation of my point.

Now ... I'll give you the opportunity of explaining how a citizen of a third world country who has zero employment opportunity is being exploited by a plant giving them a job that pays a wage at or above the prevailing wage in the area?

Perhaps you will edify us as to how they are served better by a life of starvation?

Maybe you will even explain why these people line up for days for the opportunity to be oppressed?

Perchance we will be blessed with your wisdom on how these stepping stone oppressions that led nations such as India, Taiwan, Malaysia, and South Korea from poverty to prosperity is detrimental to their own good?

What's that?

You don't have answers?

You were merely parroting the party line?

it would be circular reasoning on your part to assume that survey means that you are smarter then any liberal, or democrat here.
Group A is smarter then Group B, on average
You are a member of group A...
Therefore....you iz smarter then a B member...?
I don't think so.
And your constant comments about others being dumber then you.
(You are the benchmark here?)
Tells me you have some insecurities about your own comparable intelligence.....as no really smart people need to constantly keep repeating that stupid sh*t statement. I haven't seen one ******* statement that you have ever come up with to show up either Gayle or Hondo. Too bad that Sonoma left...I'd have enjoyed his rebuttal to your claim. Now you might be smarter then I am...because at my age I've probably forgotten more then you ever learned.
So, while we are on the topic of your near genious...I notice that you have added expertise on deep sea oil exploration to your ever expanding resume.....Mr. Phi Beta Crappa
AND on the million to one shot that you are smarter then the average bear....it means dog crappy.......That and $3.50 will buy you a beer at the local watering hole. My cousin wouldn't win any IQ contests, but he is a self made millionaire, or close to it.
I knew a genious in Boston that couldn't tie his own shoes.....your own genious seems to depend on comparing it to a select few others.

The difference is pretty simple. I don't recall either of us claiming to have you on total ignore, stating that you have nothing of interest to say, and that you aren't worthy of a reply. Woofie has said those things on more than one occasion, yet can't seem to ignore even one post! That means he has been lying all along.

Also, we can read when other people quote you.

With me, I just like to kid around anymore and say you guys are on ignore.
Doesn't seem to matter even though I have explained it several times.

No, but I do admit I find it entertaining to watch you and a couple of others get your drawers in a wad when you can't actually address the falacies of the left when they are pointed out to you. You guys get so bent out of shape, you have no choice but to go to the personal attacks and insults.

If you ever gave that up, and actually started addressing real issues, it would probably lose all of the entertainment value.

But I'm not worried. You will never change.

I must be the stupid one here then, because I fail to see where you have pointed out the fallacies( it's two "l"s,by the way) of the left to me
Tell you what, why don't you put me on ignore???
Why would you want to bother replying to Gayle, Hondo, or myself, since you know that YOUR beliefs are sacrosanct, we "worship a false God" and as you have pointed out...are too stupid to see that? WHY would someone as intellectually superior as you are, want to waste your time pointing that out to us?....of course, the answer is readily apparant.....you want your friends on the right to recognise your innate genious.
I respect both Dee's and Ed's viewpoints and intellect......you on the other hand would lose in a debating contest with a 4th grader. Of course that is just my opinion and I could be wrong....you might be able to match up until the 5th grade???

Larry's post? Yes, I believe it is, Sev. Just more hate
from the hatemeister.
I'm ignoring Larry's hate and Steve's name-calling and
you're on thin ice.
Don't make me ignore you!! </div></div>

The only time my ice gets thin is if I get distracted and dont finish my beverage quickly enough.

You'll never put me on ignore. Your to curious about what inane thing I will post next. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

How else would you describe someone who constantly says they are ignoring someone, that they have no interest in anything they have to say, and then replies to nearly every post that person makes??????????????

Steve </div></div>

I would describe them as either:

- A lonely West Virginian who just got back from the still.

- A Maryland swamp water drinker.

- A seasoned citizen who works at Walmart and gets cramps typing out how he's going to whip everyone's arse ... until his depends overload and he has to take a break.

Ah, yes, the world as seen through some poor, pathetic sap who
sits around in his soiled BVDs 24/7 hurling insults at those
who think differently than him.
If somebody I respect insults me, it hurts.
You, sir, have never earned my respect.
You're just some lonely, anal-retentive, hate-spewing guy
on the internet.

I'm sorry I had to be so frank.
I've been trying to be civil but you just get worse and worse.
And now you've dragged poor ole Steve into your hell hole.

Quite the opposite. I was raised to consider what my parents would think before I did something. Obviously, not everybody was given the same lessons as children.

Read woofies post. He has really gotten disgusting. And you think that I'm the one out of control??????????????

You, my friend, have gotten so involved in this silly us vs them game that you have been playing that you are blind to the reality going on around you. Your buddy woofie does nothing but try to stir up more crap around here. If you don't like the tone of this forum, you need look no farther than your friends woofie and granny. And you seem to want to lower yourself down to their same level.

Those who stay in the gutter, eventually start to stink!

You stop with the attacks and insults, and there will be no need. I certainly have no expectations of ever engaging you in any kind of meaningful conversation. I don't believe you are capable.

So cut the BS, drop the insults, and you won't have a problem.

Keeep it up and I will respond every time.

Every time I call you on your insulting posts, Larry jumps in

Perhaps you actually believe what you're saying. I don't know.
But, trust me, you and Larry keep the shit stirred on here.

Your posts to Gayle are disgraceful. It's no wonder she can't stand you any more.

And you and Larry constantly calling me a liar over my little ignore jokes is shameful and downright ignorant.

You have to remember Q it is not only the minimum wage it is also the matching taxes that the employer has to pay.
What most people forget is that the minimum wage was never meant to be a living wage. It is a stepping stone for people. Nothing more.
