That doesn;t seem fair to the people who picked one or the other.

Under which category? It comes closest to fitting under consumption, but I don't think they are the same.

I passed Red Dog while seemingly never moving from the bottom 5.

Expense or "what you spend" do not equal govt spending, IMO. Could easily be consumer spending. or both.

If he said it like you wrote it above, I think it's reasonably clear that it's gov't spending.

In light of your edit, then I absolutely disagree. If he had said Government Expenses, sure. But expenses include private expenditures, too, some of which go toward consumption and some of which go toward investment.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

expenses seem to fit in consumer spending which is only part of consumption. right?

While we debate Question 20, let's move on to Question 21:


21. S: 3 If you were to ask people to name all the presidents, which one would most people have the hardest time remembering?

If he just said Spending, what would you rule?

Scroll up. I forgot to post the pictures with the individual answers so I threw all the pictures (with nothing else) up in a single post at the end. Scores and players are in prior posts.

What can I say. You relate to sheep more than I do. Plus I didn't expect half the forum to answer Romania on that Warsaw Pact question.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

This was a hard one. I went with shortest term, probably a bad idea

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

I think this question is going to screw me. I went with an honest answer (ie a President I expect won't be named by many) but whether the forum agrees with me (or can even remember him ) has yet to be seen.

Okay. That makes it simple. If you wouldn't accept that, then what he said shouldn't count.
