Bill Clinton Makes Case for Sense on Cents

Posted by Larry Doyle on August 12, 2010 10:35 AM |

Bill Clinton could be a spokesman for Sense on Cents. How so? As 5 News in Ft. Smith-Fayetteveille, Arkansas attests,  Bill Clinton Says Country In “Mess” In Part Due to Lack of Economic Education

The biggest names in Arkansas politics, including President Clinton and Governor Beebe, stopped by Northwest Arkansas today to promote economic education. Today President Bill Clinton joined the state’s political and business leaders at the Economics Arkansas luncheon to celebrate growth in Northwest Arkansas and the importance of economic education.

Bill Clinton made a special trip to Springdale today to deliver the keynote address at the Economics Arkansas luncheon. Economics Arkansas is a private nonprofit organization that aims to promote economic literacy. President Clinton told the audience that many of the challenges the country faces, are due to the lack of economic literacy and education.

I concur with Bubba. I wrote as much in The Case for Sense on Cents in early 2009!!

    What’s the difference between a wonk and a wink? Bubba happy to play the blame game now. Polonius said it best, “Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.” Hamlet | Act I, Scene III KEEP PUNCHING!!

    It’s a true story.

    How many people really spend their time trying to understand the intricacies of the economy? It takes time and dedication, not something you can just pick up instantly. What most people know is through yahoo headlines.

    With Washington out of control and Dodd-Frank bills getting passed to nobody’s care, we need sense on cents more than ever.

    Larry,

    The guy was in charge for 8 years….he didn’t do a lick for this cause…in fact he supported the unions who run the schools and who are instrumental in excluding serious topics like economics (and history) in favor of sex ed and sensitivity training and diversity goals that have nothing to do with learning…in smaller classrooms of course…

    and he pursued economically ignorant goals during his whole tenure. Remember the discipline in his regime came from the legislature he was given, not from him. Robert Rubin anyone?

    But then again, I’m foaming at the mouth remembering that all, yes all, of his macro peace dividends came at the expense of our military, which gave Rumsfeld the ‘military we have’ when it came time to blow the trumpet for assembly. That didn’t cost us treasure as much as it cost some families blood.

    also the CRA was strengthened on his watch. Started with Carter. Beefed up with him. And then put on steroids by Dodd-Frank and company in the 7th inning.

    The immediate need for Econ 101 is in Washington, DC. Most of the buffoons in the Congress are clueless on economics. As most have never functioned in the private sector, and have received government checks in the mail their entire lives, they have no practical knowledge of economic incentives and disincentives.

    I’ll go on. There is the Clinton School for Public Service in Little Rock. You can get a masters degree in public service, maybe a PhD, I don’t know. My question is, who performs a greater service to the public? The guy who stocks the shelves at the grocery store where you buy your food, the person who works in the food processing plant, the fellow who comes to repair your AC when it goes out? Or some public “servant” (bureaucrat) dreaming up new regulations to make your life supposedly better or who is unable to answer a simple inquiry?
