Sunday Link-Off: All About the Economy

angie-harmon-rizzoliandisles16-11If you want to get people riled up, just talk anything that could be even tangentially related to politics. Of course, nothing in politics should be more divisive than economic policy. Do you put money in the hands of the 99% so they buy to drive the economy or the 1% so they invest to drive the economy?
