    This is the problem, what you stated in the nonbelief that printing money has nothing to do with nothing. The core to the problem is that manufacturing has been moving out of the country and all Western societies, including Europe. The chain of economics with the multiplier effect is natural resources and manufacture. When you produce product you have produced money. Europe and the United States does not produce product. Therefore, they will have no money in the future.

    Running deficits and printing money does have a cause and effect, and it is not good.

    I challenge you to go out and spend with your credit cards like there’s no tomorrow. Yes, to your friends and neighbors. You will look rich for a while and stimulate your consumption. One day you will have to pay your credit card. In the United States we will print money.

    The economics professors in college do teach true economics as Keynesian theory. The problem is that politicians do not use Keynesian theory which states that you pay back your deficits during good times and run deficits during bad times. This has never happened in the United States. While all politicians have claimed to be Keynesian theory followers. The politicians only know is to run a deficit and spanned all the time. They use Keynesian theory, but only the part they want to use.

    I do believe that college economic professors do teach true economics but nobody listens to them. When they get on TV. They have a political agenda, especially Nobel prize-winning economist from the New York Times. Of course, this Nobel prize-winning economist from the New York Times is a socialist or a communist using any excuse to advanced his philosophy

  • usa8888

    Doug–if you think consumer spending is analogous to government spending in a bad recession or depression, you were asleep in economics class.
    Again to you and Cathy–If you cut spending drastically in a bad recession or depression, you will ruin the economy–that is the plan of the right wing GOP. They hate Obama so much, they don’t care about the US economy. 2014 will see big losses in GOP Congress. Keep supporting Norquist….

  • Doug Z

    TZCA

    But liberals will now and forever blame all this on the evils of Bush and GOP obstructionism, especially those wrapped up in that beautiful fantasy world known as academia. Some in here lose credibility with each post.

    It was the Republican Party that are fiscal liberals that destroyed this country from 1994 to 2008. And George Bush did finish this off. The Republicans also controlled the presidency for 24 of the last 32 years.

    The Republicans were in control of the country during the climb of the United States economy. So, it is the liberal Republicans fault for what has happened. Senate majority leader John Bonior is a prime example. All the Republicans want to do is pretend they’re working towards a balanced budget while decreasing the automatic increases in spending.

    Now for the Democrats, there is no reason to discuss them whatsoever. Explanation point

  • cathy

    @Doug Z, How resent is your degree? I’d like to talk sometime on why you like Keynesian theory. My degree is old and none of the professors I had like Keynesian. They spent most of the time explaining what Reagan did. I think they talked about him so much because Reagan had a BA in economics.

    @Raz, For the most part – the dumber you truly are, the smarter you think you are. When you are smart, you don’t think of yourself as smart because you realize how little you truly know. One of our country’s problems is that we have to more of the former in Washington, D.C.

    @TZCA, I find it funny with all of usa8888 talk about Obama’s plan and his talk about how people needed to get a good college education. That he never once said Keynesian theory. It really has me wondering, what is being taught to students in the liberal arts colleges today and for the last fifteen years.
    It seems that they do not know the difference between a theory and a proven study. We’ve used economic theories many times on our economy but we knew they were theories. Today, they use theories and tell us they are proven facts.

    Everyone who thinks economics is as easy as the government creating work programs, so people have money which creates demand for products. Does not understand economics.

    There are no cuts in spending! There is only a decrease in the automatic increase. A decrease in the automatic increase is not a cut.

    If the budget had been balanced for the last 200 years we would have the money to run a deficit. That is not what happened. The Republicans do not want to cut spending either. Both parties want to pretend they’re cutting spending a decreasing the increase. A very small percentage, I might add

  • Doug Z

    cathy

    As one of my posts above, I stated that Keynesian theory says that you run a surplus and pay off all your debts from the past. During good times. This has never happened in history. So there is no such thing as Keynesian theory just propaganda. You cannot be supply-side for 200 years and never balance the budget and call it Keynesian theory. If we had lived under Keynesian theory we would have a surplus in 2007 when the economy went south. But, all politicians were lying about what Keynesian theory said so that they could spend and not tax. This has caused the printing of money or deficits. When the crash happened in the economy went bad. There was no surplus to fall back on as John Keynesian stated there should be.

  • Doug Z

    cathy

    Politicians only use bits and pieces of economic theory that supports their spent. That is basically called propaganda and not one of them have ever used. Economic theory as it was taught. The problem is we do not use or live by economic theory. This is just about spending never paying it back and not letting the people know by taxing them to balance a budget.

    Politicians do not want the people to feel the pain of the tax. If they were taxed at a rate that it would take to balance a budget, there would be a revolution at the pole that puts the 1994 Republican Revolution to shame. The people would not put up with the amount of tax they would have to collect to balance a budget.

    So politicians just print money and the people are not understanding the inflation that is coming their way. My mother used to go to the movies for $.25 and buy popcorn and a soda and have money left over. That is inflation

    Inflation is a tax on the people, the common people that they do not understand. The corporations do not feel inflation because they just raise the price of their product. So, it is the people that have to pay for inflation. Inflation is going to cause the lifestyle of Europe, America and all Western industrial societies to go down.

  • usa8888

    KDoug–I don’t think we need to discuss what caused our economic recession, do we–it should be obvious. The point is you don’t get out of a terrible reccession or depression by dreastically cutting spending. The moderate Repubs are saying the same thing as the dems. It’s the loony right wing t-baggers that are against both the moderate GOP and the dems. And to make matters worse, Norquist has fooled some GOP by his anachronistic and simply erroneous mantra. Cathy–if you a math major, you should be able to model the economy in a simplistic fashion and come to quick conclusion that drastically cutting of spending in a bad recession or depression will cause ruin. When the economy is back on track, then spending should be kept in line with revenues….
