Dangerous Economic Misconceptions


" When one looks at the broader comparisons of our financial situation, he discovers that a 67,000 job boost isnít even a drop in the bucket. In our current state, 300,000 to 400,000 jobs a month would have to be generated for at least three years straight in order to reach employment levels similar to those of 2006-2007, before the collapse was fully triggered. ".

IMHO Americans can't handle the truth.

In absolute terms, we have lower employment than we did in 1999. And since then, we've added something like 10.5M new workers to the economy. Something has to absorb all those workers, plus any growth that occurs in future years, plus any undocumented workers. There is nothing in our economy that can stimulate that kind of growth right now without some sort of massive structural change.

I've been saying that for awhile as the only real way out.

Gives us peasants the excuse to be miserable and take one for the team,ramps up manufacturing,reduces the peasant population consiudeably,and protects our masters (If there is a war on,we'll spend less time concentrating on those in power screwing us).Non nuclear of course.

Win win for those in power.Us?Not so much.:skull:
