Simple Economics

Posted at — Nov 19, 2011

I’m not an economics major and I hated statistics but I noticed something that I think is interesting and scary at the same time; and I’m not talking alien scary. my grandparents survived the great depression my parents, having learned their lessons, did better than them the baby boomers are entering into retirement US economic policy makers are taxing the crap out of us those same policy makers want us to spend spend spend in order to stimulate the economy and no incentive to save I am clearly not better off than my parents and as I spend over half my income on things that sustain life (food, water, insurance)I can only hope and prey that my children do better than I am.
