Thomas Sowell is one of the most brilliant people and economists in America, a well-read (and well-studied) man who had some of the most fascinating discussions ever seen on Youtube with another famous economist, Milton Friedman. In this article, he studies the GOP Presidential field with an eye towards the basics, and concludes that the man to lead us out of this morass we’re in is Newt Gingrich. Why? Because Newt’s done it before.
Sounds to me like that’s one of the best reasons to hire someone for a job; they’ve proven that they’ve done the work needed in the past.
