I’m surprised the newspapers go with that headline. Come on lefties, don’t disappoint us. You have spent the last 3 years fawning over Raghuram Rajan, but surely there are more embarrassing depths that you can sink to.
So some random organization called Clarivate something had put Rajan on a list of possible Nobel Laureates. The ecosystem jumped on this piece of junk and went to town with it.
Except the “world” didn’t say nothin’ … the Nobel Prize committee didn’t say nothin’ … it was just some random group on the internet that thought he could be a possible winner. You are just treating it as a huge thing because that random group happens to be based abroad.
See other chamchas :
Again, what list? Whose list?
So it gave me great pleasure when the Nobel Committee handed the liberals their asses on a platter. Suck on this one.
Not only did Rockstar not win, the guy who won happened to have said this.
Can you feel the liberal asses on fire here?
Hey Dhume… guess what? Seems the pro-demonetization guys were on the list, after all? The real list, not the fake one that media clowns were talking about.
I love this. I love this.
Slapped black and blue by the Nobel Prize Committee, some liberals came up with a defense that was beyond hilarious. No really, they think the latter part of what Richard Thaler said on demonetization is helping their case. Here, I quote the graphic Altnews made:
So he didn’t want the Rs 2000 note! Great! So he wasn’t opposing Modi’s move to demonetize Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. What he opposed was bringing in the Rs 2000 note. In other words, what he wanted was a much harsher form of demonetization : where Modi just sucks out the currency and then leaves everyone to go figure out the digital, cashless transactions.
And how exactly does this help the case of those who complained that the shock of demonetization hit the cash intensive sectors?
Never mind. Chamcha cheerleaders and chamcha outlets like Altnews are hurt badly enough from the disappointment of seeing Rockstar lose out (again… he wasn’t on any list … except perhaps on the liberal’ wishlist …lol!)
See, it’s not like I am saying that a Nobel winner has to be treated like some kind of ultimate authority. Economics isn’t even a science. That’s why you see Dhume and Mihir Sharma giving lectures on it. You wouldn’t find Dhume and Mihir Sharma lecturing on gravitational waves or the Riemann hypothesis or how to design cryogenic engines.
And for what it’s worth, we have all seen what happens when a Nobel winning economist is asked to actually build something. Instead of theorizing his ass off at Harvard and/or giving recommendations to Rahul Gandhi for PM post. Then, the Nobel babu uses crores to fund his luxurious travels and hire his cronies and then runs away after building a “university” that looks worse off than a high school.
This is about the PR defeat of the left. They know what they would have done if Rockstar had won. And by needlessly salivating on some sorry ass list put out by some random people, they have brought this mockery on themselves. Can’t complain now.
