Why Stimulus Doesn’t Work

It may sound like a great idea.  Inject some cash now, get people spending again, and things will get back to normal.

If we’ve learned anything from the past few years it would be that stimulus spending, backed by credit, does nothing but dig us deeper into debt.

When we stimulated the car market with cash for clunkers, what happened?  People bought cars when there was a rebate, which initially looked good, but when the deal ended (after being extended a couple of times), car sales fell.  And thousands of cars were taken off the market that would be cheaper for people to buy, which effectively drove the price of cars up.  It’s taken quite a while for car sales to recover.

So It’s Ok if We’re Slaves to China?

One of the common refrains that have been sung over and over recently is how that “going green” will help us to declare freedom from foreign oil—because we’ll need less of it.  In essence, what our government is trying to tell us is that we are slaves to foreign oil, having to pay them lavish amounts of money and we are at their bidding to a degree.

The problem that I have is that this same government is selling us into slavery of other foreign countries—most notably, China—and yet they don’t seem to be singing about how bad that slavery is.

Funny. This was filmed back in May and yet seems appropriate today:
