Bernero is a politician with ambitions - he went from the county commission to the mayor's office, and for all I know might well be positioning himself for a statewide or congressional run in 2012, when the gerrymandering may well be in Democrat hands. (Indeed, Republicans drew the lines in 2002, and have an incumbent in that district whom Democrats want desperately to dump (alliteration intentional.)

In short, Bernero was speaking to his city, his district, and his state, and not to Peter Schiff's viewership.

Peter Schiff sucssessfully predicted the crisis in 2006, not a economist. He is a financier, he studied Finance and Accounting; he is a financier.

Economists know little about finance, Math and Statistics. They spent 3 years in college studying economics. And in postgraduate level, they need to study advanced Statistics, and Math.

Journalists shouldn't seeking advices from economists, because they don't know about finance and the sub-prime mortgage is all about finance. I think the educational system is wrong.

I've had a year of undergraduate accounting; I would like to learn finance, but going to school is probably not an option, since I have no money and cannot get financial aid.

So how can I acquire equivalent finance knowledge to that possessed by someone with a finance degree?

Did that idiot television hostess who was dumb enough to buy some sort of hybrid (purchased in part with money extorted from the taxpayers) really say the auto industry should be mandated to make electric cars?

"Has Rush Limbaugh done a Prius song yet?"...

I have no idea poor boomer but considering some I've heard in the past can that guy who does those songs for Rush be far behind on a song for the Prius?
