    He can tell us, again, how smart he is.

    And again, and again, and again...

    We never get enough of that.

    Welcome back BigLeRoy!!!
    I bet he looks like Donald J Trump, that may be an actual picture of LeRoy, he certainly sounds a lot like Trump.

    Your economic smartness is yugely bigger.

    (1) What, PRECISELY, is Donald Trump going to DO to restore productivity growth? Especially since we DO NOT KNOW WHY it abruptly fell, starting back in 2005?

    (2) Automation was going on throughout the Obama years.

    (3) It is nothing less than a LIE that "there was no growth" during the Obama years. Growth was slow----it has BEEN slow since 2005, since that abrupt dropoff in productivity; it was not non-existent. And the stock market gave its ROARING stamp of approval during the Obama years, with both the Dow and the S&P 500 MORE THAN TRIPLING.

    I've been told I look like Vladimir Lenin, a man I despise. I would much prefer to look like John Lennon, a man who was one of my all-time favorite people, along with Groucho Marx.

    All Hail Marx and Lennon!!

    Thanks for proving my point...yet again.

    You seem incapable of talking for an extended period without bragging how smart you are and putting those little personal insults in your replies to people with a differing opinion.

    That's just who you are.

    I doubt you could change even if you wanted to.

    Just expect people to take shots back at you that's all I am saying.

    I loves me some back and forth as long as it's good natured.

    If that happens, you can bet BigLeRoy will somehow give Obama credit, and blaming Bush and/or Trump.

    You should worry about your reading comprehension, since you are responding to a post in which the first sentence was:

    I've never said I'm 'smarter' than anyone here.

    But it does SO HAPPEN that I've been TEACHING college economics for DECADES. Have YOU? Are you like the kid who shows up in Physics 101 and starts telling the Professor that he don't know nuthin' about physics?

    You brag constantly about how smart you are.

    See a mental health professional and have them explain your problem to you.

    At least the member who bragged that she was a millionaire, has realized that it does not matter on an anonymous forum.

    If only you would learn the same lesson.

    And, while you are there, ask that professional why you have to throw in those little personal insults, as well.

    A two-for-one deal.

    You have BOTH problems...

    I don't know what more Obama could have done to tamp down economic growth. Hundreds of billions in new taxes to fund Obamacare, jacked up taxes on small business owners, obamacare mandates that cost employers heavily to continue to provide health care benefits, the failed carbon credit push, thousands of pages of new regs to increase energy cost, huge compliance costs with Frank-Dodd, all inflicting despair for business leaders and employers, who just like Intel scrapped plans of capital investment.

    The economy wasn't growing so there was no good way to grow your business, and no need for capital investment. Profits were banked or used for stock buybacks in the stagnation of the Obamaconomy. Obama's FED made money nearly free, but still investing with the uncertainty and lack of leadership of the Obamaconomy made investing way too risky.
