Austerity is not popular; and austerity, especially conservative style, which uses it ONLY to shift burdens from the rich to the middle class and below, and to shift money from them to the rich, is failing. It is failing because Austrian school economics is only useful in theory, not practice, while Keynesian economics has a proven successful track record, when properly implemented.
In that political context, I've been waiting to post this animation, which gets it all so very right, about the right wing.
Hooray again for Mark Fiore; he understands, as well as animates, brilliantly; applause, applause!
Conservatives could do well to learn their economic lessons from him.
