I Am the Greatest Economist that Has Ever Lived

Many of you have made the comment along the lines of

"Well, Captain, when some archeologist finds your blog/book/etc., they're going to look back and say, "wow, they had the answer right here. Why didn't they listen to this guy?""

Why wait till then? Just read some vintage Cappy Cap to see Super Awesome Economic Genius it's it's early days.

You're good but not as good as Thomas Sowell.

I would actually cast my vote to Walter E Williams as the greatest economist that has ever lived.

And the fact both are black is not coincidental.

To have come from a culture that purposely attempts to brainwash you based on the color of your skin, not to mention punish you if you deviate too far from the reservation, and to have the intellectual fortitude and honesty to overcome that brainwashing and pursue the truth, is the sign of a truly honest and great economist.

I don't compare to either, simply because my training grounds were never so hostile to independent thought and thus never testing my independent thought so.
