    Stock market at record highs. Corporate profits at record highs (though their taxes at record lows), employment IS up nationwide, and the states hardest hit by unemployment are where “conservative” corporations have shipped the most jobs overseas, or to other poorer states that will accept lower salaries and benefits packages.


    Shhhh, don’t tell McCoy.

    Detroit is but the tip of the iceberg and a harbinger of things to come. I have read that one of the many problems in Detroit was years of borrowing to stay afloat and huge unfunded liabilities. It is happening in many other jurisdictions including the U.S. government. Who’d a thunk that could lead to trouble? Yet the U.S. government continues to borrow to spend $2 billion per week on a useless war in Afghanistan and you hardly hear a peep.

    Stock markets are not an indicator of the future, See 1929, 2007, etc.

    You give the same old tired arguments time and time again.

    I’ve been out of work for over a year, so I don’t need you to tell me how great the stock market is. I’ve had plenty of time on my hands to see just how much the economy really sucks.

    @swr

    Your research is out of whack. Hoover only implemented government spending to jump start the economy (Keynesian economics) the last year of his four year administration. In fact the great depression was preceded by three Republican presidents, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, who practiced laissez-faire, hands off, unregulated policy. Hoover was elected out of office largely for a do-nothing policy, despite his relenting in his final year. FDR’s policy of government spending to replace moribund private spending was, and is, supported by the vast majority of economists. Most think FDR did the right thing, which is why he is often rated in the top three U.S. presidents. (You’ll never get economists to all agree on anything.) The depression starting under three Republican presidents continues to be a source of embarrassment to the Republicans, and they continue trying to revise history.

    Austerity doesn’t work. We need to get people back to work, INCLUDING public sector workers.

    Any job no matter how temporary, part-time and poorly paid counted the same way. The numbers look better than things really are.

    “No one can deny this is happening and why.”

    yes I agree. during the bush administration while every piece of equity in the country was being leveraged and replaced with IOU’s to the taxpayer, and the stock market was going up;

    the GOP said ‘the stock market can only go up, It is anti-business to require union pension funding of 30 percent, so let’s cut that back to 10 percent.

    well, surprise surprise, when the market came down, there weren’t enough funds to cover the pensions.
