Setting Robert Reich Straight

In a series of tweets, Robert Reich has listed a number of what he calls "economic lies." I have responded to a number of these tweets.

  5. Nice work Bob. This arrogant man needs to hear it from every corner. As they say, Reich probably never even ran a lemonade stand. Then he shapes young minds who might have done so, fouling up the things they learned.

  7. Markets cannot exist without government? Can somebody really be THAT ignorant? I'm trying to decide if these people are completely retarded, or just purposefully spewing statist propaganda for their own benefit and fellow connected.

    1. Exactly. I guess there was no trade in the wild west and there is no such thing as a black market. These are all myths because they don't involve government but free and willful interactions between people.

  12. 'Robert Reich @RBReich

    Biggest economic lie #5: "Markets" exist without government. Truth: Government organizes, defines, and enforces the market.'

    So, this goes for black markets, too?

    3. if you take RR's point to its logical conclusion, he must argue that there was no trading before governments existed. Everyone only consumed what they grew/produced. NO TRADE before government.... LOL yeah right.
