"As the authors point out, what it all means is that "the nearly decade-long economic expansion may be more vulnerable to a further spike in gasoline prices or an escalation of trade conflicts" at present. In an unsustainable situation like this, little shocks can trigger a recession."


Trump Logic:
Perfect time for a new Trade war! Trade wars are easy to win, China isnt treating us fairly! what do we really have to lose?

so its ok to have tarrifs on us products. not just free trade which he is wanting, but that doesnt fit your narrative.

on the topic, its too easy to rack up debt, putting them in a hole. no one learns about this in school, im not sure if anyone learns anything in schools anymore.

Yeah, he wants free trade, that's why he puts so many roadblocks into free trade, destroying it. Just because he loves free trade to death.



Everything went downhill after the Rothschilds' Central Banks took control of the enconomy themselves and took gold and silver which are real store of wealth from the people, and giving them worthless paper money backed by nothing.

I 100% agree with that. The problem with using an alternate system whether as a nation or the entire world is we never have that open conversation about an alternate. We can't just say socialism or capitalism or any other form of economic will work, we have to conversate, plan and agree on how a system will work. One tactic I've thought of is your service to society should be societies service back to you. In another words if you work for a living you should be able to go to your store and attain your groceries or things you need or want. But you shouldn't just take the entire bin of beef as that doesn't leave anything left for anyone else. So then you think ration control. The problem with that is some families are bigger than others. So where's the cap? The rations for a 4 person family is the same as a 7 person family? Who makes those decisions other than a voting system to decide. Vote and decide on the individual policies, not the president/prime Minister or king or queen to make decisions for all. 

My view is basically similar to this, but with the difference that I believe everyone who is able to should work. The application of the above ideas can then be formulated classically as "from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs". And indeed who better to decide on what people's needs are than the people themselves, collectively?

Clearly, we need to give the top 1% of the 1% a bit more of a tax cut, that's all they need then they will finally start creating those high paying jobs everyone needs.

(time passes)

Oh, that's didn't work? How about some more Welfare for Billionaires. Surely it's bound to work one of these days. (It's Economics 'Nice Guys' version.)



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

Eeeer that is basically socialism and the root cause of why it doesn't work. No one would thrive to do more and look for what market need.

It kind of pisses me off that something this meaningful and important is just another battleground for some people to defend or attack based on whichever "side" they pledge allegiance. The Right and The Left have created such a cavern of antagonistic ignorance that almost no one even cares about the truth anymore--they just care about victory or defeat and they're quite willing to watch the world go down in flames for the sake of their sacred political direction.

It's not "basically" socialism; I am a socialist and a radical democrat!

Why not offer an opinion of your own on this subject then instead of just criticizing the opinions of others?
