That’s why Trump is a billionaire, because he doesn’t know anything about economics.
How did Ben earn his billions?
Yeah Ben, tell us all about your millions or billions and how you made them through businesses and wise investments.
Indeed. 0bama also "knows something" about economics. Both of them know how to destroy the once prosperous economy of a once free country.
I stopped being a fan of Stein when he came out for Obama in 08.
Hillary knows plenty about economics; she’s a billionaire, too, you know.
Didn’t Stein work for Richard “We’re all Keynesians Now” Nixon?
Ben is reasonably wealthy, but nowhere near 10 billion $ of wealth. Trump apparently knows a thing or two Stein does not.
>>but Trump doesn’t. I think that Ben Stein is completely wrong.<<
The proof is in the pudding. Trump is in control of untold billions. Stein, a few million at best.
This means Trump understands economic cause and effect more than an academician.
What stein is saying is that he disagrees with Trump’s economic POLITICS.
NOT the same thing.
Trump has a business degree from a top business school and has been running his businesses for decades, but he doesn’t know a thing about economics.
If you say so, Ben.
P.S. We are already in a trade war, but we are losing.
To my knowledge, Ben Stein has no degree in economics, nor any particular expertise. It just sounds like Trump favors something that Stein opposes. What might that be?
Crony capitalism is Socialism. Let us level the playing field.
But Shrillary would, Ben? You must be on powerful meds these days.
How can we be led into a trade war that WE ARE ALREADY IN? We've been in a trade war since the early 1990's.
Keynsians keep digging a deeper hole
Yeah Ben, tell us all about how rich you are through wise investments and businesses you operate.
