Come back after a trip to see Marc Andreessen’s team of twitter posters complaining wryly about how government is so gosh durn big and citing experts like Milton Friedman.
A difficulty of modern economics: I have yet to talk to a non-Keynesian who believes Keynesians intend to cut fiscal spending post-recovery.

That is, Marc Andreesen, the former National Center for Supercomputing Applications programmer who helped write the Mosaic Web Browser for the WWW that CERN scientists developed on top of the Internet technology that DARPA and NSF researchers and bureaucrats created on top of prior government funded technology like integrated circuits, and then built a company that made him rich with the team that worked together at NCSA, engaging in the typical rich person bitching about the gummint. Which shows how little reality matters to people.
