“Can I finish?” I think you just did Ross

RIP Ross Perot. One of the most iconic wordsmiths has died.

“Can I finish” and “giant sucking sound” are two of his best.

The giant sucking sound was more China than Mexico, but overall he described free trade for the blue collar well.

Had he not quit the race (twice?) I think he would have won.

Today, FOE will explain economics, fraud, unemployment, and the end of the world. There will no longer be a need for economists, if there ever was. You will understand everything.FOE is that sort of column.Long ago, everybody worked on farms, growing food. This was a real service. People wanted food. They liked to eat it. At the same time, there was a tremendous demand for refrigerators and cars. People didn’t know they wanted these things because they hadn’t been invented. But they wanted them anyway.

This will lift you UP

One of the most important video series ever made (quote-anounceofsalt), and I agree.

If you like studies of people, as I do, watch this series starting from the beginning.

I make the entire series available here (need a desktop with 10gig of space).

The Up series is a series of documentary films produced by Granada Television for ITV that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. So far the documentary has had nine episodes spanning 56 years (one episode every seven years) all of which were broadcast on ITV, apart from the 6th episode which was broadcast on BBC One.
