Mr galen: I missed the whole point of this article because i was expecting some thing about Capitalism. I found noting about capitalism. Only a discussion about statism. Tom838 is right about the history. As Ayn Rand has written, there is only flaw in the U S Constitution: The Commerce Clause. We are not completely Statist because we still have a free market in Information Technology hardware & software.
With the Redskins playing the Monday night game and the National's still not having made a deal with their 1st baseman, Adam LaRoche, there's not much to think about here in Our Nation's Capital other than that pesky fiscal cliff.

Depending on what comes up in your Google search for "What will be the effect on GDP of the fiscal cliff" you get answers ranging from a drop of about 1.4 percent (NASDAQ) up to four percent (Washington Post).

Most of the guesses fall in the 3 - 3.5 percent range.

No matter how much the economy...
