Growing the economy

It seems our president is preoccupied correcting the damage to our domestic, foreign, diplomatic and defense systems. One statistic that refuses to change for the better is the number of people unemployed, underemployed and those who have stopped looking. Employment is the least likely and last to turn around. It took a long time to start falling and is dependent on all the other factors before improvement shows.


When government settles on recovery practices, when banks start lending, when employers big and small are able to estimate their future costs of doing business, only then can business start hiring and consumers start spending. Most of these options are dependent on each other to grow the economy. After many years of trying, it appears America is catching up to the rest of the developed world with a form of healthcare for all citizens. It is up to us to police this advance, and not let the fear mongers and merchants of greed spoil it for us.

Hopefully, we can outlast the pending doom of depression, reinforce a spirit of optimism and get on with our inventive efforts. With the economic problems addressed, we can get on with improving educational, cultural and exploratory efforts.
