    “Excessive saving”? Me thinks his pockets are empty. Kinda hard to spend recklessly when 23 million are unemployed.

    Will Rogers on economists: “If you laid those guys end to end they’d point in all directions.”

    Actually its the excessive tax cuts for people who have more money than god that is thwarting the recovery.

    economists…they still promote less regulation, less taxes, and economic utopia will flourish. must be nice, when they have tenure, hefty speaking and consulting fees, and loaded benefits and pensions.

    Yeah, well we can trade Obamanomics for Romnynomics if we so choose. Won’t matter much except to the 1%. But then the 1% is all that matters to Mitt. We can even put Mitch McConnell in charge in the Senate. At least Wall St. (and Donald Trump) will be happy, for awhile.

    As someone who actually has an MBA?

    Saving isn’t a bad thing per se.
    []
    Rather, it’s how a person saves what they have.
    []
    If you stick it in a bank account, the money is still at work: the bank keeps a minimum percentage on-hand, and then uses the rest to make loans to people.
    []
    If you stuff it in the mattress, then it does nobody any good.
    []
    A lot of people don’t seem to understand the distinction.

    I think Toles’ point is that economists aren’t really helping and that the middle class is in a damned if you do damned if you don’t situation.

    I agree about saving, it is good as long as it is saved where it can still work.
    savings in a Swiss bank account , the Cayman islands or invested in gold does not help our economy.

    And the greed of teachers is drowning us in debt.

    If the voting continues to be compromised in 19-24 states it will be the few hard line Republicans who “elect” Willard.

    I know you think the rich should take everyone’s money and not pay their fair share but unlike you I have a sense of fairness.

    If people want to help the recovery need to look for stuff made in the USA. Anything else only helps china and walmart. And the only jobs they create are clerk postion which will only last till you spend the last of you money and china has it all

    The rich can afford to pay their fair share of taxes. I pay at a higher rate than Mitt.

    You have to think about all of those filibusters in the Senate that stopped any initiative to actually reduce the deficit.
