Paul Ryan, The Path to Prosperity and the Peter Principle

“The remainder of Ryan’s 73-page masterpiece is laden with superficial facts and figures (arguably as fictional as Borges) with little or no attribution. At some point, “the theory of gravity” ceases to be a controversial subject and like gravity there has to be a clear measure of the economic nightmare the nation is in. I’m not sure Paul Ryan has the answer to that and banning common forms of birth control, eliminating a woman’s right to choose, ending funding for Planned Parenthood and voting against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is not going reduce the debt. I’m not an economist, but I’d venture to say a BA in economics from Miami or anywhere else isn’t going to drive Stiglitz out of Columbia, Krugman out of Princeton or make people forget Milton Friedman at Chicago let alone John Maynard Keynes. I’m not impugning Ryan’s integrity as a person, but if there were a prime example of someone attaining the heights of the Peter Principle, then he would be it. If you need further proof of that then the comment made by one of the greatest of all Peter Principle disciples, Dick Cheney, that he “worships the ground Paul Ryan walks on” is all one needs to hear.”
