  • Ultimately the article asks the question: "Will this work?" We have yet to find out.

     I think the question should be " What happens if it doesn't, what comes after socialism ?"

  • Yes and no, II don't think that the issue has just come up in the last few months either, the current recession has occured when the govt allowed and even encouraged banks to lend to people who could not afford their homes, eventually the ripple effect got everything involved. There must be govt control on certain things, like water in cities, or we would see things like gas going for $7-8 when typical prices are around $3. The people here can't have it both ways, control until we see fit is ridiculous...we must accept the fact that companies don't have our best interest in mind, their own remains key. but where do we draw the line is the complicated task set at hand

    Newsweek was the magazine that was called Obamaweek, because it propelled him in the spotlight every 2 weeks. You don't understand the significance of the question OR the article content. Obviously.

  • Why would this article scare me?
    In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it several weeks ago when I received my weekly issue of Newsweek. It's an objective look at the comparisons that can be drawn between the direction we're headed and the way things are done in other countries.

  • For Newsweek to publish such an article so soon, I would say there are some important people asking all the right questions almost in time. I'm glad to see the left is starting to hammer him so soon. I love it!!
