Taking Names

I finally got around to watching the unedited version of this interview today. It’s Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute being interviewed by Jon Stewart.

What is the American Enterprise Institute? I know you were paying attention.

If you go on to Part 2, be sure to listen for the phrase “private sector unions”. Mr. Brooks doesn’t feel the need to take them on, probably, because his organization and the politicians it serves have pretty much neutralized private sector unions in the last 30 years. That leaves the public sector unions. Controllers -- pay attention. This all started with PATCO. You are a target. Wake up. Don’t underestimate them. Sure, Jon Stewart wipes the floor with Mr. Brooks but Jon Stewart is the smartest man on TV.
