    “When I worked for the administration I was very active in the implementation of the Recovery Act…one thing we found about clean energy was that you build a solar plant, you’re going to hire a lot of people. You? run a solar plant, it doesn’t take a ton of people to run some of these plants. The labor saving technology around the actual production of clean energy is quite intense. Some of these firms don’t employ as many people as you might hope.” –former Obama economic advisor Jared Bernstein

    Wikipedia says about the “institute for energy research”:

    “When the Institute released studies opposed to higher standards of fuel-efficiency in the? nation’s automotive fleets, the Los Angeles Times referred? to it as “a Washington-based hotbed of global warming denial supported by oil and coal interests”.[

    LMAO!? Robert Murphy killed this nonsense easily.

    Well done!

    Okay, you dont like that unholy alliance between Big Business and the State, fine, I wholeheartedly agree. But the only efficient solution to it, is to reduce the power of the state and this what Big Business can get out of it. We need business to return to making money through the market and? not through the politicians.

    This is the typical bullshit of making “The State” or some “other” an invisible specter that is out to get you…. the? “State” is always changing business interests.
    ” Politics is the shadow cast on society by big business” – John Dewey

    Bob Murphy is a great economist but an even greater framer – and thats why he gets these high-paid jobs at these think tanks.

  6. spinner883 says:

    Except the fact that it is often the State that tries to censor these very issues. It was the Bush administration that censored James Hansen; it was Cheney who allowed various? energy companies to forgo 40 years of environmental regulation in the 2005 energy Bill. It was the United States that ousted James Watson from the IPCC in 2002 at the request of Exxon asking if he could be replaced because he was too scary…is 8 years ago too hard to remember?

  7. Illyrien says:

    So? Its? not as if the State would ever fund a man like him who wont obay its infinite wisdom.

    You’re BOTH right. The U.S. economy is a farce, and is totally based on consumer spending. If and WHEN everyone does stop buying, the economy will indeed collapse, and it WILL be painful. But, it’s what needs to happen. Only then will? the market finally restructure and reallocate resources to where they need to have REAL viable growth.

    Our economy of present is little more than debt financed consumption, and of course that’s not sustainable.

  13. robertwc82 says:

    i never said they were doing people a favour by convincing them to buy their products. i know the reason companies advertise.

    the system is a? sytem of mass production, and if the supply outweighs demand this is a very bad thing for the company

    im not condoning the system though

  14. WildFireFilms says:

    Also 80% of Obama’s energy stimulus jobs are going to foreign countries to produce green products such as wind turbines and solar panels.not to mention how he wants to close 11,000,000 acres in the West by Executive? Order to keep Americans from our natural? resources. Looks like Pres. Jimmy Carter will be the good old days.

  15. job187 says:

    Robert Murphy? is the man!
    Always interesting to listen to his lectures.

  16. robertwc82 says:

    want to make a start on saving the enviroment. stop buying shit you dont need with money? you dont have. but if we all started doing that the whole system on which the economy runs collapses. thats why they program you at an early age to desire crap you dont need through TV advertising
