Not to be mean, but you guys really don't know a damned thing about history. The problems we're facing today ARE NOT NEW, but they seem new because you're too lazy and complacent to study history.

In 1773, the East India Trading Company was deemed to big to fail and given a huge tax break by the British government. This pissed off people in Boston so bad that they dressed up as Indians and dumped tons of tea into the harbor.

Over 230 years later, we're still repeating the same mistakes because our species is too dumb to do anything different.

Current reccy (happens so often it needs to have a nickname) is a prrof of the circularity of history, especially in economics. Of this we learn that we learn nothing, to quote Olli.

I wouldn't say psychic - rather, he pointed this problem out before it was making headlines. But guys like Ralph Nader have been calling for reform for a very long time. Shame the population remains too dense to vote beyond the same two bailout-boy-parties.

yeah, no kidding - it's a little too close to home six years later... Scott Adams must be psychic, or the future Dilbert told him what was gonna happen when he came back and messed up his "social" life
