Apology to Soros
Although George Soros is a rather nasty character, I owe him an apology.
Polistra has been maligning Soros consistently without actually listening to him. After settling down and listening to a long interview (with Fareed Zakariah on CNN today) it's clear that Soros is making almost exactly the same points that Polistra has been making.
I can understand why nobody is listening to Polistra ... and to the thousands of other bloggers and columnists who have been pleading for ordinary reality-based economics ... but I really can't
understand why nobody is listening to Soros. He owns most of our politicians, and they're still too stupid to follow his advice.
