    My inner Misesian imp gyrated from "ooo, ooo, I know!", to "yes!", to "c'mon man!" and then "damn this is good stuff". It was like a blind Viennese waltz until Raoul says it around 33:00. So much fun.

    Has high frequency trading changed the amplitude or cycle lengths of the markets or other indicators? If the business does not work well in command economies how has it worked in manipulated markets?

    Free market produces business cycles? Someone apparently is mistaking Keynes' religion for real economics. I'd point him to Austrian Business Cycle Theory and Mises' Theory of Money and Credit.

    The tidbit that kept getting repeated which I believe will have the biggest impact going forward is the bit about,"a 1/8 loss of earning power for the middle class." #HollowedOut
