Economists on Ron Paul
Al Jazeera interviews five. At least they'e not the usual suspects. Julie Matthaei, Professor of economics at Wellesley College:
"From the Marxist perspective, we agree with Paul that the government is corrupt and it's problematic. But again, we don't need to get rid of government, we need to transform it and make it really democratic - whereas now, it's bought off by the moneyed interests … If the current Congress controlled the Fed, it wouldn't be that much better. That's the problem."
From the anarchist perspective, we do need to get rid of the government.
Or from the libertarian perspective? Help me out here, anarchists! What's the difference? For example, if I think about the code enforcement guy at the local level:
1. Current system will be corrupt in twenty years max (this is a small town, not Manhattan)
2. Libertarians would have no code enforcement?
3. Anarchists would have no code enforcement?
