I just came back from Bloomberg where I spoke with Tom Keene about numerous subjects (not online yet). In addition to talking stocks with Tony Dwyer, we discussed Elizabeth Warren with the Bloomie DC correspondent, the elections, and the conservative/liberal divide.
I ripped into each side as corrupt partisan hacks. I favor the NASCAR endorsement approach for Congress-critters: They should all have to wear on their suit coats the stickers of their “sponsors” and campaign funders — like any NASCAR team. Only instead of Penzoil and Target, the sponsor logos on their blazers would say AIG and CITI and ENRON and HUMANA.
Tom dances around my party affiliation, and I tell him I have none.
I am not a Democrat, because I have no idea what their economic policies are; And I am not a Republican, because I know precisely what their economic policies are.
Indeed, the entire left/right debate is false, an artificial framework for analyzing policy. In my mind, the real debate is the corporatocracy versus the individual.
And right now, the individual is losing . . .
