Thanks, Luke.

I thought that this guy's quintessimal fundalesensce was a bit obvolumerated in such a way that left me feeling somewhat overabundified.

Nothing new under the sun... Ayn Rand's favorite comedian, Prof. Irwin Corey, still funny after all these years.

Thanks for sharing that, MEM.

Where did you learn that this man was her favorite comedian?

Ha!

He could have easily thrown in a "Minsky Moment" into his "Fisher-Minsky-Poo" approach, while slipstreaming into the atomvernacular defoobulator...


Check out the same sign of the slopes on the aggregate -- the aggregate, mind you -- supply/demand curves in Figures 1,2,3 of this piece of technical barbarism.


...as referenced here.


This Nobel Prize winning Princeton professor mixes dynamic analysis with static analysis, and leads himself into a gross blunder, as evidenced by the similar signs of those static analysis curves(which are nowhere explained by his gibberish math.) He asserts their similar signed slope based on his dynamic hocus-pocus "Minsky Moment" and then uses static analysis(S-D curves with flawed sign/sense of slopes) to come to his conclusions.


At no point do consumers statically prefer to buy MORE of things at higher prices in aggregate(ie, the economies as a whole). The rare exceptions to this are freak outliers like 'the Cadillac effect' and do not represent economies in aggregate. He has mixed(did you see him?)the dynamic analysis of 'a shift in the supply/demand curves' with a fundamental change in sign of the slope of the static demand curve. He made what is known as a blunder, but the results of the blunder supports his politics, and so, is totally reasonable political science.

FAIL, professor. Would not pass muster in any sophomore engineering class.

But ... would fit right into this video, or any of his talking head appearances reprising the role of Dr. Irwin Corey...
