  • I do. We are in a recession, at some point the economy will rebound - it's a matter of when.

  • This is going to be the "new" American economy in some ways.
    1) The job sector with the highest amount of growth in the past decade has been the service industry. Traditionally low wage, low hour, low to no benies jobs.
    2) The American economy is 70% dependent on retail sales/consumption of goods and services.

    Those 2 things work against one another. Lower wage paying jobs do not provide the disposable income needed to keep fueling the economy. The less money people make, the less they have to spend, which plays out in the economy being stalled. The only way to boost the economy back up really is: 1) higher wage paying jobs ..2) changing the economy from a consumption based one back to a manufacturing one 3) Change the governmental policies that not only encourage but help companies prosper by outsourcing/offshoring/insourcins 4) creating a new manufacturing sector here in the US .

  • There are many deep issues in regards to what is causing so many problems in the US economy. None of them are an easy fix, and none of them are a quick fix. And the sad reality is this, many of the things that need to happen in order to change the d3oward spiral we are on, will not happen. The government is not going to change policies that benefit corporations/mulitnationals anytime soon. Many of those policies have contributed to the jobs/economics issues that we are experiencing now. Some of those policies have been in play for close to 30 years now.
