Seriously, isn’t it amazing just how impressive the people being named to key positions in the Obama administration seem? Bye-bye hacks and cronies, hello people who actually know what they’re doing.
Judging by this objective criterion, it looks like the two adminstrations are drawing economists from roughly the same talent pool.
Of course, if one defines "grownup" as a person who agrees with Paul Krugman, and "hack" as a person who does not, then one might come to a different conclusion.
Íncrivel como a ideologia não poupa ninguém de ser transformado num perfeito idiota.
Provavelmente assim serão os quatro (oito) anos de Barack Obama: tudo que ele fizer, não importa o quê, será considerado sofisticado, adulto e intelectual.
Como dizem os gringos, because they said so.
