Ironic Headline of the Day

From The New York Times:

Here’s a country, the U.S., whose loosely-regulated capitalist economic system breeds such enormous greed, greed that allows the richest 10% of the population to control 2/3 of the country’s net worth, allows the average Fortune 500 CEO to earn 380 times more than the average U.S. worker, allows over 8 million children under 18 years of age to be without health insurance, allows widespread irresponsible banking practices that brought the country to the brink of another Great Depression via a financial crisis that destabilized economies all over the world.

And yet, the U.S. now has two more Nobel Prize Laureate Economists to add to it’s already dominating list. Out of the 71 Laureates crowned since 1969, 49 have been from the U.S.

Go figure.
