Well, I'm getting close....PV solar power, grow some food, hunters and other gardeners bring more, don't get sick (so far)...and it still sucks. Taxes on everything you own that are hard to cheat on, car insurance etc. Have to paint the house now and then (now in this case). And ex-wife support....hopefully going away real soon.Deflation?!?!?
Yeah, there may be deflation......if you don't eat food, put gas in your tank, take medicine, use electricity,............never mind. : - (
...really, Fed will follow Japan? But how? What kinda, sorta "worked" (ie, postponed the inevitable for two + decades) for one of the biggest CREDITOR, EXPORTER nations (ie, eating away their savings, exporting their way out of the immediate pickle), is somehow, magically expected to work for the world largest DEBTOR, IMPORTER nation???"Rosengren said that the Federal Reserve will follow the model of Japan, a nation that has pursued for two decades almost identical policies those which the Fed embarked upon in September."
I was thinking about it all, and eventually, I come to a conclusion: we already USED to have just the thing: it is called WAGE. If someone can work, to get his SS "benefits", why do we need government to redistribute & pay them?(...)to get full wlefare, you MUST work. No exceptions. The streets need cleaning, the schools need maintaining, libraries need staffing, the list is endless. Our county government is whinging on and on about having to lay off staff, so why not require welfare recipients who cannot get a job to perform a little janitorial work? How about day-care for other welfare queens so they can seek out employment? How about doing something for a change instead of simply suckling at the tit?(...)
