    Bizarre...no, not really. Bizarre would be the time I found a human foot in a microwave. This is just odd.

    As she was a former bartenderette, I am not surprised to see AOC out front on this critical issue.

    AOC in another country? Sounds like a terrific idea to me - does she need any help packing?

    In this week's issue, she references "famed economist Milton Keynes"

    Her game went down when her handler was let go due to being under investigation for misusing campaign funds. Fact check me on this.

    She never had much of a game. However, the biggest problem isn't is that she didn't know Keynes's name. I don't care if someone isn't knowledgeable about the most discredited economist in history. The problem is the false sense of intellect and the lack of concern and self-awareness. She really thinks she knows a lot, so she isn't going to think to learn more about Keynes and why he was right or wrong. He's just a name she threw out there to sound smart.

    The worst of it is she conflated the names of Milton Friedman and Keynes, two economists who couldn't be more polar opposites.

    She has an economics degree. If she can get that piece of paper and not know who John Maynard Keynes is, she is a complete farce along with the university that gave her a degree.

    Keynes is the most discredited economist in history or #2 to Karl Marx. However, the whole world runs according to his theories. Even people who think they believe in free markets describe the economy as Keynes did. Every economic report and metric used as analysis comes from Keynsian perspective.

    Even Milton Friedman saw the economy in a Keynes-like fashion. Targeting inflation rates, central banking control, "economic stimulus", etc is all from Keynes.

    AOC along with every Progressive thinks today's world is governed by neoLiberalism, which essentially Keynes and Friedman added to Center Left social policy, and neoConservative foreign policy. I don't think they have a correct understanding of who runs the world, but to her Milton and Keynes are the same thing. She is a Socialist, so everyone else is who she is talking about.
