  2. 1) 2-2-0-0? :confused:
    2) My "focus" is more on the debt liquidation with recessions / depressions as the primary cause. :cool:
    3) Regulatory stuff can be annoying. It's similar to the fire department arriving at a fire AFTER it has burnt itself out. Where was the regulation when you really needed it? :confused: :eek: :( :mad:
  3. is that a bit like saying. we havent had a major airline crash in years, why do we need the faa?

  4. Author does not provide any specific proof. He could have made a case for the epa and safety regulations making cars more expensive vs. Dergulating banking rules where we now have too big to fail banks sucking off the taxpayers tits. Personally I prefer some regulations, I don't want some stupid greedy farmer poisoning my food like chinese human feces fertilizer.
  5. 1) Touche'. :)
    2) I was hinting more at financial/intangible-oriented types of things compared to tangibles like planes and trains. :cool:
