Perhaps Bush does know what he is doing?

By 1932, the US economy had declined by half, and one-third of the workforce was unemployed.

The whole US financial system also went into meltdown, with a shutdown of the entire banking system in March 1933 by the time the new President, Franklin Roosevelt took office and launched the New Deal.

Many economists on both left and right have criticised the response of the authorities as inadequate.

The US central bank actually raised interest rates to protect the value of the dollar and preserve the gold standard, while the US government raised tariffs and ran a budget surplus.

New Deal measures alleviated some of the worst problems of the Depression, but the US economy did not fully recover until World War II, when massive military spending eliminated unemployment and boosted growth....

Re: Perhaps Bush does know what he is doing?

War has always been good for the US economy. It helps the president go to congress and re-allocate the millions which are targeted for studying the mating patterns of one-balled volcano monkeys and the like into real jobs (building war equipment and supplies).

Link is (yet) another Black Sabbath video.

You should take a clue from last night...when Olney removed your misleading threads about the "Future of IDNs",
which was nothing more than a link to yet another Black Sabbath video. Grow up if you want to stick around.

I would appreciate if you don't coach me. I have done it with allowing others to tell me what to do. Thanks in advance.

I believe that the US today faces a different problem, it is not a monetary/economic problem like in the 1927, but a credit problem.

Down to basics, you can't do business if you don't know if the bonds you buy are worth any money in the future.

From chemical WMD to financial WMDs today, this problem is real.

Printing more money will further jeopardize the already fragile system.

That's a common knowledge - for those who want to know. Thanks for sharing.
I think for us it presents an opportunity. Domains are pricey these days as anything one can carry away... I just got a private offer for 70.000 (american paper) and turned it down. That was for an ascii, though... I, of course hope that USA will stick for a while, enough for me to cash out.

Re: Perhaps Bush does know what he is doing?

Duck, what do you mean by this? Are you approving a mass killing of people? Remember, the only thing that keeps you personally safe is that those who want revenge do not associate you with their loss.
I thought of you as being intellectual-in a sense- but again, what is being intellectual?
True, you have developed intellectual capacities but do you have intellectual conception (if you know what i mean)?
It seems sad that a man like you, a respectable one, does not see that suffering of others never brings lasting happiness (or profit) to you. We are all the same interconnected energy. I hope you will realize it one day, because, unlike some others on this forum, I see that you have this great potential. And watch this again

Re: Perhaps Bush does know what he is doing?

No, the remarks were tongue in cheek. I am not a Bush fan and I don't believe that wars really solve very much generally. I am, however, beginning to believe that the obsession with everything he labels Al Qaedas is as much to do with distracting attention from the corruption and ineptitude at home as anything else.
