I swear, some people would let a banker literally crap into their mouth if one of the major brainwashing news networks said it was good for them and only crazy people didn't consume a daily intake of bank crap.

GLP members own the fuck out of Wonkish. I am a liberal by the way, but I support Ron Paul. Any self respecting liberal should. Ending wars and cutting from the top instead of the bottom? Sounds good to me.

That has to happen to get back on track, first off....

We are in a recession, you don't realize that since you say "we will enter another recessionary period".

The markets have to naturally correct themselves, that's all there is to it.

I have no clue why anyone would believe everything is good right now.

Depression (economics)


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The stock market crash of 1929 marked the start of the greatest depression in modern history with some effects felt through 1945.
In economics, a depression is a sustained, long-term downturn in economic activity in one or more economies. It is a more severe downturn than a recession, which is seen by some economists as part of the modern business cycle.

Considered, by some economists, a rare and extreme form of recession, a depression is characterized by its length, by abnormally large increases in unemployment, falls in the availability of credit— often due to some kind of banking or financial crisis, shrinking output—as buyers dry up and suppliers cut back on production, and investment, large number of bankruptcies—including sovereign debt defaults, significantly reduced amounts of trade and commerce—especially international, as well as highly volatile relative currency value fluctuations—most often due to devaluations. Price deflation, financial crises and bank failures are also common elements of a depression that are not normally a part of a recession.

Re: Dr. Paul Krugman owns the fuck out of Rep. Ron Paul
The depression of 1920 ended within one year because the US government did not increase spending. It did nothing.

The Great Depression lasted 12 long years because the US government attempted to stimulate a recovery through new programs with heavy borrowing and spending. It ended after WWII when spending and taxes were cut.

In the 1950's, Japan's banking sector collapsed. The government allowed the banks to fail and liquidate. Japan recovered vigorously soon after.

In the 1990's, after their stock and real estate collapse, Japan began spending enormous sums and running massive deficits, bailing out banks and building bridges to nowhere.

Japan is STILL in deep recession after 25 years of massive fiscal stimulus!

Paul Krugman is deceitful, self-righteous, hack. He has said that government should "seize the commanding heights of the economy."

Krugman simply wants the private sector to whither and die, and the Federal government to grow ever larger and more powerful.
