Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Has No Clue About Economics – Has Economics Degree

 In Politics

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.

Must have slept through most of those classes.

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.
