    Watched the show "making immigration work". It was Great. Well said Mr. Fareed! After the show, my kids asked "Mom I thought this is the land of the free! "

    I can't find your weekly quiz. Why can you post it more clearly to find? Why is it so difficult to find?

    I want to comment on something you said when talking about the howforeigners are treated in different countires. I want to criticise you when I dont get round to writing to comment on all the great things you say.
    You asked some man about the fact that North Americans dont take certain types of jobs and he answered that employers wont offer the wages North Americans accept and you said the wages all Americans accept arent competative in the world. He was a republican or seemed it but by a stroke of fate he ended up saying something more leftist than you did.
    The strange socialist fact in history has been that when unions and such asked for more, illogical as it seemed that the owners of the firm should be able to pay more or should remain competetive if they did, they paid more and in real terms and stayed competative. The countries that embrased a light form of socialism did terribly well and it was not because of their empires, they had empires before and their poor stayed poor, the average life style of their countries stayed terrilbly low. I can only come up with these reasons why the sort of modified socialism of europe say should have been such a sucess economically, that before the rich spent money outside the country expanding their wealth on foreign ventures or spent it conquering other countries, a more expensive practice than buying luxoury goods maybe a reason why the wealth of empires did not greatly raise the life of the masses of the countries with empires, you only have to read Dickens for example to know it did not.
    The reasons socialism works, I reckon, is that many of those who want to become rich are imaginative and if they have to pay more in real terms they find a way to make that much extra. Another reason I have found to explain the sucess of socialism is that when many more of the people, once to poor to even hope to make enough to start their own businesses, financially can and do start them, when they receive more money and can save up and buy the things the business needs. A lot more people start businesses which makes for more busineses that get off the ground. Another aspect of this is that more people starting businesses and less chronically depressed members of the population, also means the people of the country being better supplied with creature comforts, a cheap car, one and all, sofas and televisions. Not all things need foreign imports there is enough stone and enough wood can be grown in most countries to build houses and make furniture and feed people and this is more so when good luck in money and education increases the populaitons ability to use land and such, more sucessfully.
    There were always other countries that did jobs cheaper and yet paying more worked. It is magic you have to just shut your eyes and do it and if you start to doubt about it, the country you are in is likely to go fast forward, back to the third world direction. rose macaskie madrid.

    The Economic/Political Impasse:
    In the USA as well….. Multi-Culturalsim has failed only here no one is willing to express this politically inconvenient truth. 50 years ago while the two parties had much to squabble about – consensus was achieved for the common good – LBJ's successes being just one example.
    I suggest that the impasse we are currently enduring is because the '"white majority" to some degree does not embrace this nation as "their own", it is now us and them – we are not ALL in it together, soon Latinos will out number white Americans and along with that the threat of loosing English as a single common language – (don't draw comparisons to English/French Canada that country has a different fledgling history) – a Republican conservative is not willing to consider an illegal barrio resident his fellow American – so how do you justify your white Republican tax dollars keeping his brown belly full. There is no longer the belief in the "common good" because ther is no common!
