I want to get behind Paul's fiscal views, but I have a hard time supporting any economic theories that completely shun mathematics. Yeah, I understand human behavior can be complex and unpredictable. But seriously, no empirical evidence? No statistics? Just pure deduction? And I'm just supposed to have faith that it would work in a country as large, complex, and diverse as the U.S. when less drastic approaches have worked in the past (and work right now in countries economically and socially similar to the U.S.)? Well, fuck, sign me up! And that's not even taking into account the lack of any real world examples of countries fully embracing Austrian-School theories. The only country I can think of that even approaches Paul's utopia is Switzerland, but they have a central bank and universal healthcare, the commies P)! Somalia? Yeah, let's not go there.
