The Stimulus, Before/After

I have not the slightest idea how to copy and paste this piece into a thread here. So my apologies on that.

Fortunately, it's 20 slides you should be able to breeze through in a couple minutes.

http://www.moslereconomics.com/wp-co...f/stimulus.pdf

I'm sure the next 50 posts will tell me to shove my head up my ass.

It's a good "read" regardless. Thoughts welcome, as if I needed to ask.

It's tragic that so many people have been unemployed for so long. But I haven't seen anything to suggest this is radically different.

Tom,

The 50s are back that way. This country can't and won't return to them. Sorry, but that's how the market works.

A young person in the 21st century finds much greater success in creating non-manufacturing companies. Period. I'm not an economist, so I don't know why that happens to be the case, but it is. It likely has to do with cheaper labor elsewhere.

And get off your high horse for ****'s sake. I don't hate old people, and I'm not disrespecting their contributions they made to this country. I just hate the ones like you who bitch all the time about how younger generations are running the country into the ground. If you possessed any self-knowledge at all you would realize that the older generation was saying that about you when YOU were young. History tends to repeat itself, so just shut the **** up, please. Hard back-breaking labor jobs for people in their 20s don't happen anymore, but that doesn't mean young people don't work hard or don't know what self-reliance is.

What worked for you back in the time of the dinosaurs probably isn't the right solution for a large majority of people these days. Quit pretending like you know what's right.

Is there some way we can find out who is giving Tom rep?

Some people need to be exposed.

I know. Why isn't it enough to point out that the rate has skyrocketed since Obama sat down in the driver's seat?

This administration is not concerned with the wellbeing of the American public, only the American President. It's all about Obama.
It's the same formula. It's just that under previous Presidents, most people who wanted to work were able to find jobs before their unemployment benefits ran out. You might say that Obamaconomics broke the measurement system.

So you feel like I'm an old retired person? I just know for a fact that this country no longer produces the commodities it uses. What will you do if China cuts us off? If the economy tanks as the guys in NYC are predicting who's going to have the money to buy those things that aren't made here any longer? If I knew what was right I'd be in New Zealand rightnow being a millionaire. I know what's wrong and this country is moving in that direction.

It's antique thinking that is embraced by people who are convinced that ideas are a finite commodity. Manufacturing jobs are the safety net for those people. Those jobs are a form of private welfare that creative people pay to able bodied people. Of course it scares people to death that the welfare is coming to an end. The foundation has shifted. Get used to it. Any politician that tells you that he can deliver us back from the future is a liar or a dangerous idiot.

It's not the economy that is the question. It's survivability if we get cut off from those that manufacture the commodities we use. When you go to the grocery store read the lables, the items prepared/manufactured in the U.S. tell you so, those that aren't are distributed by: whomever. Check out how many items are distributed inside the U.S., you might be surprised.

Should the providers of commodities cut us off how wil the masses survive? On internet services?

Who do you think owes you these American-made and American-grown commodities? Private business? The government?

It's not that anyone owes us anything. We owe it to ourselves to be a self sustaining country. Without that capability we are going to be up a creek without a paddle.

A bit off topic, but this part of your post reminds me of a quote attributed to Plato/Socrates

"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."

Of course, since this sounds so contemporary, it is portrayed as folly...because the world is still here...right? Because the fall of the Greek civilization never happened.
