Conard's message is one you heard alot in 2012. Government should lower taxes, thereby increasing the lottery effects of getting rich, and watch economy grow. While Conrad offers some interesting facts, he offers no solutions for those being left behind (more than half the adult US population) other than the fact that rich people need groundskeepers and other services. Conrad and his ilk fail to understand that we are a nation not a collection of individuals who happen to live in a particular part of the world.

Oh wow! This dude really knows his stuff! JUST KIDDING!!!!
This clown is a complete and total charlatan, a disinformation specialist of the first order, am unfamiliar with his background, but that is probably why there's no bio of of this fraudster included!
Total bull! Opinion without well-sourced fact is propaganda. [one-half star means AWFUL! Rating: Totally bogus!]
{If Larry Summers is a // liberal economist \\ then that lobbyist for the central banksters [], has a bizarre anti-worker, anti-women-in-science-and-economics, anti-national-sovereignty way of showing it!}
