That’s society for you… The inefficiency of the private sector! :o
I agree. It wouldn’t even detract from the cartoon to remove it.
The trade deal looks good! I think.
That’s true, but Reagan increased military spending, and decreased taxes, meaning that the economy got more juice, making it not a convincing argument for causing the end of inflation, although quite possibly a good one for Reagan’s credit for growth. Volcker’s real insight was that you can end stagflation by creating a recession, which wipes out both growth and inflation: like pressing a “reset” button on inflation expectations. After that, Reagan’s policies may or not have kickstarted growth again, without that nasty inflation
Mmmm. Delicious! That’s why marzipan was invented…
Just something I notice, we find it much easier to demonize people who are overweight, we use it in our insults. Given that many people are overweight for reasons they could not control, and that society likes to impose standards on some groups that are unhealthy, perhaps it makes sense to stop using that specific insult.
I just want to say that the use of this imagery is more than a touch insensitive.
Ok, this is technically not accurate… yet. The rule that was put into place puts work requirements on food stamps, which is very problematic. Other proposed, but not yet implemented, rules, would remove more people from the food stamp programs which could very well affect this person.
I think I agree, to an extent. Generalizations are rarely accurate, but certainly in this case it appears to be true.
