Definitely Deficit & Debt

The Banker and his wife by Marinus van Reymerswaele

The Western World has become the new “Rain Man”.
Every time I turn on the TV, or the radio, and read the newspapers I am being fed by the same words.
I have come to be under the impression that sand is being thrown at the public’s eyes to prevent it from seeing the snare. Otherwise why do we keep receiving the same answers to different questions?

Q: What can be done to tackle families' over-indebtedness?
A: Deficit & Debt.

Q: How can we encourage the business world to create jobs and encourage workers to seek for jobs?
A: Deficit & Debt.

Q: How can we remind bankers that their main line of business is to lend money so that real wealth can be generated?
A: Definitely Deficit & Debt.

Q: Government coffers are empty. Rumour has it that there isn’t a cent to solve preeminent problems, such as fixing bridges, dams, roads and schools; not to mention assisting indigent citizens. What can be done?
A: Definitely Deficit & Debt. 

This reminds me of one of my nephews who has Asperger and keeps repeating the same thing over and over again with no tangible result.

The culprits for this economic crisis (both Right and Left Wings + certain influential groups) have already been identified, however the time to point fingers has become redundant. 
The autistic trope (“Deficit & Debt”) is no longer acceptable. Futile chat and comments should be rejected; real solutions to the problem should be demanded. 

If the experts are incapable of offering a sustainable solution, then people are to forget governments, banks, the media and, specially, the narrow-minded-parrot-like commentators; and go back to the basics (i.e. roll up their sleeves and generate business – if not alone, then in community [remember barter?]). That way, nobody will starve and eventually wealth and well-being will be restored. 

Definitely new economic solutions are peremptory.

  1. I was listening to the radio the other day, and a man from the New York Times was telling the radio hosts about some of the programs for which our government pays. Some of them were RIDICULOUS! I think most Americans could cut plenty of wasteful programs, given the chance. Here is an online interactive that allows you the chance to play with our budget. :)

  3. Hi! If only we could cut "Greed" out of the equation, and, for people to live within their means, we'd all be better off.

    Take Care,
    Peter

  5. Max:

    As Rocky Balboa so eloquently said, "Absolutely."

    Happy trails.

  6. I'm all for re-establishing a system of barter, especially for those who are going without. People are really suffering.

    We bail out the banks and the corporations, and tell impoverished and homeless families they have to make do with less....

    How is that acceptable in civilized societies?

  8. Max,
    they just don't have an answer, I think. It is always easier to blame on something, rather than tell the truth.

    Max good good points as always.
