http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/31/opinion/sunday/sundown-in-america.html?ref=opinion&ref=opinion The opinion piece by David Stockman is largely focused on Mr. Stockman's fatalistic view of the U.S. financial system. Mr. Stockman is a fiscal conservative and a proponent of the Gold Standard. He attacks many parties and institutions in every part of the political and economic spectrum, and throws a punch at Elon Musk too: Is it just me, or does Elon Musk draw a lot of fire from the people who should be celebrating his success the most? Isn't the archetypal American story the tale of the immigrant who comes to America, gets an education, and then works hard at starting a business which becomes successful? I don't get it.
