People don't want to believe that we were in a recession years ago. Now the powers that be are finally calling it a recession. It is almost like they
are treating us like mushrooms. Keeping us in the dark and feeding us manure. We are currently in a depression with now hyper inflation setting in.
You see they are sneaky about it now. Instead of outright raising of prices they are instead either lowing the quantity of products in their packaging
and or maintaining a price after the demand has dropped.
My oppinion is that the law of supply and demand is officially dead. No longer are products priced according to availability or demand. Even though we
have a surplus in so many comodities from oil to grains and now milk, the price is remaining stagnant.
It is alot harder for most people to catch on to the inflation if it is done in a covert manner, or if we are blatantly lied to about the supply of a
comodity. This is why the gas prices are rising right now even though we have a global surplus.
What is even more interesting about all of this, is that following "trickle down" economics, the price of products should be so low now that pocket
change could feed your family.
I think that the proof of our economic failure is rearing its ugly head slowly but surely. A major devaluation of the dollar is occuring as we speak
which in return will cause massive inflation on a scale that dwarfs all other inflation scenarios we have experienced in the past.
As more layoffs occur due to a lack of demand, a larger lack of demand will occur, thus creating more layoffs and further decreasing demand. As it
sits right now the price of a new car should be at 1970's level, but it is not.
The government's solution is to "create" jobs. First you must have a demand for the jobs you are creating, with out that all you are doing is
trying to save face in the eye of the public. The key problem with the government "creating" jobs comes in the question of "who will pay for the
creation of the jobs?". If the government "pays" for the job creation, they will only cause more devaluation of the dollar and compound the
The only solution that I can see makes sense, is closing down of corporations. Allow the reintroduction of the "ma and pa" buisness and regulate the
life out of corporations. By heavy regulating of the corporate farms and other buisnesses that can be "ma and pa" operations, we can in return
create more jobs, thus increasing demand. This will also help in the changing of this "disposable" lifestyle we have all become so accustom to. In
order to do this the government would have to make all products "user serviceable" and force the parts to be available to the public at a proper
Some will say that this idea conflicts with capitalism and free market. In reallity the corporations that have taken over most industries and small
buisnesses are the conflict with in the free market system. The corporations are the ones who are who elimate jobs and farms by "modernizing" the
work force. In theory we have the technology to live a life of little to no work, but no one would profit from it.
And so I rant. Good times.
