Can't find a job because they are all too busy buying **** and spending their welfare checks at Wal Mart.

But I thought consumer spending was a good thing? (I'm excluding CC purchases here)

You've been told that increased consumption will lead to economic revival. You've been lied to.

The truth shall be the opposite: Only increased *production* will lead to economic revival.

Then what enplanes the economic revival after WWII? Gov spending was huge thanks to the war, and privet spending was in a slump.

Actually, that lack of private spending during the war years is a big reason -- private savings were ready and available for investment (real investment, not government-directed malinvestment) post-war.

after - *and during* - WWII?

Ever heard of a victory garden? It alone wasn't the reason, but the ideals behind it encompass the spirit of the time. The high-production/low-consumption model prevailed for quite some time after the end of WWII

The secret behind producing more than you consume is that everyone has to either work harder, earn less, or a combination of both. There's actually an incredibly easy way to require everyone to produce *at least as much* as they consume: Don't force a group of people to give money to another group. (Welfare) This is what charitable donations are for - if I want to give money to someone less fortunate, it should be my choice.

Now, you will immediately begin to think: millions of people would die from starvation if you did that, you devil!! Well, let me comment on this: "You are wrong".

Yes, I admit, in order for this idea to work, you have to lower the value you place on human life quite considerably, stop being a new-agey **** and start being an economist. Think about how many people have died during the attack on the WTC, and afterwards during two wars. Now think about how many people died on June 6, 1944. Suddenly, the past 10 years of war and strife doesnt mean *jack *****. Now think of where our economy is then vs. now.

So when I say "you are wrong" - I say so with caveat. That caveat is: those people who are unable to produce enough for their own consumption, and who have no one who is able to produce enough to support their consumption through voluntary charity or parenting (think children / disabled / elderly) will certainly die. Though in an ideal economy, they wouldn't have lived anyways unless they had been in a position to save up money for a retirement.

So basically, the economy drainers will die, and only those who can produce enough - or more than enough - to survive will remain.

And then we will be free again.
