Subject: RE: BS: Press Banned from WH who's next?
was it Clinton who used to say - its the economy stupid!
i think there's an element of that. can he pull it off? can he do what no other politician dares do. Say no to the money men....the doors are shut, you're not taking your wealth out of this country....
you couldn't have done that in the 1970's, because the tactics of our financial competitors weren't clear.
however can he get away with saying to ford, and general motors, and epiphone guitars etc - from now on if you want access to our market - you build your megafactory here.
perhaps this can work whilst we still have some spending power-enough to kick ass. in fifty tears on the present trajectory - we won't.
