Are you, perchance, an economist?

Rather than showing off your film preferences, can you show a factually false statement in the piece?

Are you saying that it's not true that Americans pay twice as much for their healthcare (which many of them don't receive) as the rest of the first world?

Are you saying that Americans don't, on average, die in debt equivalent to a year's salary?

Are you saying that GDP and the Stock Exchange are good measures of economic success, nevermind the fact that the number of people in grinding poverty is on the rise?

If so, what is government for, if all it's going to do is reinforce a life that is 'red in tooth and claw'?
