His continued insistence on slashing Government spending has informed the Tea Party movement, and any Republican member of Congress that strays too far from their orthodoxy is likely to be challenged in a primary. His rhetoric on returning to the gold standard has politicized the Federal Reserve, helping to constrain Ben Bernanke's actions. He is retiring from Congress in January, but he will continue to use his strong grassroots network to push for smaller government.

Well, I guess I can see how you'd view destroying the "global economy" as a bad thing if you didn't realize that the economics are destroying us. :rolleyes:

Impact: Ron Paul's contribution to the gridlock has been to push the debate on monetary policy so far to the right that even mainstream Republicans are becoming anti-Fed.

FWIW, Bernanke is on the list too, but for all the wrong reasons.

Hilarious list! Was this written by Paul Krugman?


Obama made the list, too, but not for the reasons he should have.

Position: The 44th President of the United States, 2009-Present

Impact: President Obama inherited a historically bad economy. He made several blunders along the way that made it worse than it had to be. First; the initial stimulus package was not large enough. Whether he underestimated the depth of the crisis, or overestimated his ability to pass more stimulus later, he missed an opportunity to shorten the downturn. Now declining public sector spending is holding back an economy that can ill afford additional headwinds.

The basic premise of this article: If only the government could spend more money, then we'd be out of this mess!

And a frighteningly large percentage of people believe that... truly and passionately

Yeah and it is so weird to me. It doesn't even pass the common sense smell test.

Maybe 5 million would do it, but 1 million is not enough. :p

That would have been a better plan than bailing the banks out. So would be just forgiving the mortagage debt on single family, owner-occupied homes. Let the banks go under, get at some people back on solid footing, and move along.

I don't even understand what angle the author is coming from on this one. Most of the people are Keynesians. Merkel and Hollande are almost complete opposites. Democrats, Republicans, Socialists, etc. If the point was that political division is hampering the world economy, then what side is correct? The author has put both sides of the discourse on this list! It makes no sense to me!

I'd prefer the same amount of money for everyone. I don't really take to paying for someone's house when I do not have one myself.

So, everyone should get one free, then the building industry would boom :) /j/k

That would not be responsible. A much better idea would be to give a trillion dollars to JP Sachs & Co., and in their infinite wisdom, they could trickle that money down to the mundanes. They are doing God's work, don't you know?

(Oh, yeah, that's the plan they actually went with.)

It really is frightening to think about how bad things would be if he weren't around. He's pretty much become the only voice of reason (with a few other key exceptions) in a world gone horribly mad

And hence we see their flawed logic. They need to stop thinking in dollars and start thinking in productivity. The thing that gives dollars value in the first place.
