Demand, Stagnation in the Economy and the Vanishing Middle-Class

UnkaWillbur - May 21, 2017

Over at The Institute for New Economic Thinking, Servaas Storm brings us a fine analysis of the causes and motivations for the stagnation in the eonomy, the…

    Guess I’ll post a song for the day. Let’s see… How about a little “Greenback Dollar” to go along with the link on demonetization?

    • Sorry, ran way late today and totally forgot! So, thanks you for putting up such a great tune! I’ll always remember Hoyt as the dad in Gremlins!

        De nada, Unka. It’s the least I could do. 🙂

      RIGHT THERE!!!! That’s the cause of all our ills. Outlaw machinery and bring back full employment. Just think, no more car payment!!!!

        And then we can fight the ex-auto industry workers for jobs? Sounds like a plan.

        • thud

          Yes,I anticipate there may be a few minor difficulties. Okay then. The other option might be guaranteed incomes. That’s a bit of a hard sell as well. Maybe we just need to thin the herd by a few billion.

          • MBI is the way to go. The Communism after the fall of Capitalism and all that Marxist folderol.

            Speaking of Communism , I have seen one hammer and sickle sign here … a remnant from the past , it’s on the front of the administration building they call it , city hall I guess it would be . I remember seeing one on the front of the old military college building … pilot school , but that was over ten years ago .. In Moscow I’ve seen it once , that was in one of the old underground stations . It’s a rare sight these days . Kinda cool to see , you realize where you are .

            Lenin was born here , don’t know if ever mentioned it .

          • Oh, sorry. I didn’t mean to imply that I think the Soviet Union was ever actually communist, except for maybe a few months there in the early 20s. Economically far-lef? Sure. But communist….

            😀

            Just interesting to me that almost all sign of their political past is gone , that’s all .

            Yes. Thin it from the top down.

    “The budget is a direct strike at the poorest and weakest and at people
    who voted for Trump in regions whose support he needed, like the Rust
    Belt. It’s one thing to “cut the state,” it’s another to cut programs
    that feed hungry adults and children. The extra money to the police
    state and military will help his people, but not as much as the cuts and
    the Trumpcare failure will cost them.” From “Trump Is Now Breaking His Core Promises.” I’m curious as to how the extra money for class suppression and the war eternal will help his voters. Perhaps they can all get into uniforms of some kind. My bad. That Is the obvious answer. Duh.Oh,wait! I forgot about all those subminimum wage jobs that will be opening up soon! Perhaps I can get lucky and snag a job on a migrating roofer crew or something like that. What job are YOU hoping to snag?

    • Same as it ever was… Well, ever was since the late70s/early 80s.

    • Heh. Well, it’s a good way to keep the pleebs busy, and not paying attention to the man/men behind the curtain. 🙁

        True! <3 Night Unka!!
