I still don't trust the son of a bitch

But he does seem to be coming around to my way of thinking.

Bruce Bartlett:

Economists are still searching for answers to the slow growth of the United States economy. Some are now focusing on the issue of “financialization,” the growth of the financial sector as a share of gross domestic product. Financialization is also an important factor in the growth of income inequality, which is also a culprit in slow growth.

Yeah, this Bruce Bartlett.

To be clear, Bartlett is not adopting the idea of financialization-as-a-cause-of-economic-malaise. His article only reports on others showing an interest.

Better than nothing.

He's only about 2 years behind me.

Bartlett is what a Republican ought to be. As much as I disagree with him on substance - he's still an unrepentant supply-sider - he says lots of things that make sense, and has little common ground with the current evil Rethug clown car.
