     By Ron Meyer, Young America’s Foundation

    Young America’s Foundation has launched a 10-question economics quiz titled “Are You Smarter than the Obama Administration?” to highlight this administration’s ignorance of free enterprise and entrepreneurship.

    Take the quiz here: http://www.yaf.org/Quizzes/economicsquiz.html.

    Last week, the president declared the private sector is “doing fine.” Last year, he blamed “ATM machines” and “airport kiosks” for unemployment.

    The Obama administration’s former chief economist, Austin Goolsbee, has said “Washington isn’t spending too much,” and White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett said that increased unemployment benefits are “healthy” for the economy. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has even struggled to complete his own taxes—foregoing payroll taxes from 2001 to 2004.

    Embarrassing.

    Americans, especially in the private sector, aren’t “doing fine,” and this new quiz is a fun way to engage and educate young people on how the economy actually works.

    The short quiz covers topics ranging from taxes to ObamaCare, and while the Obama administration’s failures are a serious topic, the quiz is riddled with humor too.

    After you take the quiz, make sure to check out and laugh at what all the results mean. For example, if you get 80%: “You got almost all the questions right. The Obama administration should invite you to a beer summit—because even if you were drunk, you could still come up with better economic policies than this administration.”

    Take the quiz: *Are You Smarter than the Obama Administration?*

    • The problem with scliaoism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. .Margaret Thatcher (Edit by clif, funny the corporate whores who screech for their welfare don't seem to think soThe military-industrial complex of corporate welfare have sucked trillions out of the economy, and the reich-wing still wants HIGHER defense spending on cold war weapons system we don't need and in the current enviroment we can't afford) Really? You conservatives have blamed the liberals for your own failings and you have blamed us for decades. Care to explain?It is not the conservatives who blame anyone for their success. We choose not to be victims and choose to make our own decisions instead of relying on the government to run our lives. That is far from blame, it is more like taking personal responsibility. How many of the mortgage bailout, bought over my head homeowners are conservative and Republican, probably very few.(Edit by clif, Lots more the you thunk skud-puppy, In Louisville, Kentucky 8 people have 122 properties in foreclosure due to their flipping properties.They were caught in the downward spiral of housing prices and lack of willing buyers. Lots of people got caught when the bubble burst holding properties they couldn't flip )Being a victim is a choice and I choose not to be.Edit byClif, Right, People on 9-11 CHOSE to be a victim;The people bernie madoff scammed CHOSE to be a victim,The people Enron scammed CHOSE to be a victim,what an asshole
