Obama's Free-Market

"Obama's Chicago Boys"

He chose as his chief economic adviser Austan Goolsbee, a University of Chicago economist on the left side of a spectrum that stops at the center-right.


Don't hope for a significantly different direction for the economy under Obama, he's here to stay the course.

To win the office of the "Prez" of the USA you have to race to the center during the election, once your position is secured you can actually do whatever the hell you want for the better part of four years. We can only hope that Obama is racing for the center only to get the office and that he will then veer to the left for the remainder of his time in office.

This market needs regulation not more freedom.
