I'm only half kidding about Glenn being an agent for the Chinese.
I'm just back from another excursion to the People's Republic of China where they happily spend the money to insure their kids learn English and Calculus by the time they leave high school and where, using this educational infrastructure, they're looking forward to a future in which the US will become the new France -- or maybe Belgium.
In the meantime, Glenn keeps frantically slashing away at our educational system as if this were a good thing.
What do you call a business that stops investing in R&D?
Maybe Glenn hopes to turn over the US for a profit. I wonder if we'll be able to buy stock options before the sale...
Anyway, in the meantime, I note he's conducting mock interviews with himself again pretending to be outraged on behalf of the "tax payers" -- the very people whose economic throat he's slitting.
Maybe irony will be enough to sustain us, even after China gets the rest of our jobs. With Glenn's help, they won't even have to try. We're doing it for them.
More on this as the jetlag settles.
