Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Has No Clue About Economics – Has Economics Degree
The new Socialist Democratic candidate for New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to have a severe lack of information about how unemployment rates are calculated when she interviewed with PBS’s Firing Line. And her knowledge of economic history was…scary.
Sadly she is She graduated fourth in her class from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations https://t.co/fatD3FMf1X

Must have slept through most of those classes.
Socialist Ocasio-Cortez confronted with booming economy & low unemployment numbers.
She says “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs” and “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.” pic.twitter.com/dxIqwqZn89

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says unemployment Is low “because everyone has two jobs.” That’s false. https://t.co/lcPSP0Af01

To everyone’s amazement she not only stated that “unemployment is low because everyone is working two jobs,” she further stated that “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.” Not true, and shows that she may have gotten her “degree” out of a box of Fruit Loops Cereal. Higher living standards are a product of capitalism, not socialism. But then you’d have to actually open a textbook that wasn’t written by leftists to know that.
“The market economy, contrary to what you might have heard, has existed since the caves.” Deirdre McCloskey in “Bourgeois Dignity”
Twitter trashed her, as they usually do anyone, but she is seriously behind the curve with this sort of thing. She won the primary election against Rep Joseph Crowley, D-NY.
Keep letting her talk !!!!

But, surprisingly, ever since Capitalism has existed in the world, quality of life indexes have only increased in general. We live in best time to be alive ever in the History of Mankind because of capitalism.

Inequality has always existed in the world, and will always exist. Even under socialist regimes. We played this game in the Soviet Union and millions died. Individual differences matter.

Socialism has also not always existed, nor will it always exist. Twinkies did not always exist, nor will they always exist. Mayonnaise did not always exist nor will it always exist
This has been a fun exercise in naming things that have not always existed. How many can you name?
