"The Economist" Sets Up Academy at Babalú

"Cobbler, stick to your last," I guess.

Henry "Economist" Gómez has gifted the readers of Babalú with his own cobbled together "Econ 101" course. His personal observations are, as always, amusing. Henry is never funnier than when he is trying to be serious. Here he writes that "a lot" of what Ron Paul says about economics has "a kernel of truth in it." Oh, no, Henry, not a kernel but a fullgrown beanstalk. Of course, as Henry, proud possessor of a BA in economics from the University of Florida, reminds us: "Ron Paul is a psysician not an economist." Actually, he's an abortionist, which is a practical Malthusian. Henry himself has recently proven his own deep knowledge of economics with the observation that ad-men make more money than journalists. Although not a Rule of Economics, it does usually hold true. Certainly as long as Henry is paid $25 per article the differential will hold fast as far as he's concerned.

As for his video course in five installments of 5-minutes, well, Universidad del Aire it is not. But in just 25-minutes you can know as much about economics as Henry does. Still, you probably already know more.

Vana,

just don't disagree with him because (as he stated in the comments section) he has a trigger finger. All comrades must follow the party line or else.

Fortunately, Henry has his trigger finger snuggling in his nose most of the time.

Free economics lessons! Who can complain?

MaT,

I am so sick of people that treat Ron Paul like the second coming of Christ when he's really just a hypocrite like any other. Fuck him!

If he Ron Paul is against abortion then he has compartmentalized his life in such a way that theoretically he can be against it while still practicing it because it is legal. In other words, he does share something in common with the likes of Washington and Jefferson, both of whom despised slavery in theory but not in practice.

Henry's new obsession - Obama, or his own egomania has now gone to a higher level. He just posted the same exact story right after it was posted by another of Babalu's editors. Either he doesn't read his own blog or he thinks his version is superior. But what do I know, I'm still on lesson 2 of Econ 101.
