No, I do not.  I can listen to this all day.  I expect sensible economic policy analysis from him.  If Bill Clinton continued to listen to him, I doubt that he would have signed the bill that repealed Glass-Steagall.  BTW it helps when customers have money.

In his video he talked about the divide created between union and non-union.  He could have easily talked about the divide between Blacks and Whites.  This is part of what the column on welfare and Whites mentioned.

What I am tired of is conservative/trickle down/supply side economics that created this mess.  These kinds of economic policies created the panics of the 1800s, the Great Depression and the recessions we have had since including this one.

As for taxes I can almost agree 100% with a statement you made.  Tax cuts do not create jobs.  Demand for products and services do.
If customers don't have jobs....they aren't customers anymore because they don't have money. Higher taxes equals higher prices equals less demand for products and services. GO VIKINGS!!!

You almost got it.  If the customers have jobs, especially good paying jobs, then they will have money to spend.  Businesses will be able to sell products and offer services.

With lower taxes, especially on the rich, expect cutbacks on police, fire departments, emergency personnel, and education.
Therefore lower salaries, higher unemployment, less spending.
