    Thank you Gabriele. I certainly would have to agree with your post.
    I am just not as fearful as others of turning more over to private sector.
    I think that america was happier, as you mentioned. But I believe it was
    because we felt more in control of our lives and had more to look forward to.
    I believe looking to the government for answers will only leave us more dissappointed and dejected.
    I appreciate your insight.

    No I agree that we are loosing jobs to foreign competition
    And I am not at all happy about it.
    Never mind. You seem a little upset

    No advances in 30 years?
    You need to go take a ride to your local cancer clinic
    like the mayo clinic and yell that at the top of your lungs
    See what kind of laughs you’ll get

    You are uninformed
    Our lower life expectancy is among the youth due to homicides,
    car accidents, drug and alcohol abuse. Our life style in this
    country due to obesity is also a factor.
    Our aging population is largely due to improvements in medical
    and pharmaceutical advancements.
    fact 2 A segment of our population is getting poorer as emerging
    countries are becoming more wealthy
    Hope this helps your understanding of the global economic
    situation a little better.

    Sure As you type on your laptop, over the internet, listening to
    music on your I-pod, play your electronic games,overnite mail
    delivery. All the result of
    free market economics. Oh and you metioned “a cancer”. If you were to
    be so unlucky, your chances of survival far greater today thanks
    to medical technology mainly due to private investment

    What do you mean “you can’t have growth with globalization”?
    As long as you have an increasing population and businesses
    allowed to inovate and produce, you can certainly have growth.
    We just can’t compete because our wages are to high in a global
    economy.

    The majority of the measures included in the ARRA act of 2009,
    were expansion of unemployment, increase in health care spending,(what??)education, energy and infrastructure.
    While I agree most of this is necessary, This is not what
    fuels an economy for the long run. The original proposal was $827 billion versus $787 which included $275 billion tax cuts, mainly to workers making under $70000

    Help me out here.
    how can you have more stimulas and QE, which the purpose of this is
    to drive down interest rates, to incourage investment in companies, to
    expand and hire and at the same time you expect a higher return from your
    savings? I don’t think you can have it both ways.
