    I’m not one to be politically partisan (and am not even American- though I follow American politics a little out of interest- so I have no ax(e) to grind) but something seems off about people making statements with stats like these. They carry with them the basic assumption that national governments have omnipotent power to affect their economies. Nothing here about it being a complex interplay involving other nations, private enterprise, and ordinary Joe Public as well…

    In short, governments can do something, but often take the rap when they’re as likely victims of circumstance.

    Of course there’s more,…. that in itself is an understatement.
    But in the end,… there has to be some kind of bottom line.
    If you listened to the the incredible amount of noise,… from the pundits, the historians, the economists, the politicians,– American politics is enough to keep anybody confused.
    That’s why stats like this are important. Whose ideologies have benefited the country the most.
    That said, I understand what you’re saying, and I don’t disagree.
