I was just thinking how interesting it is that less than a hundred years ago the US apparently had so much disposable income that they could undertake projects like turning a massive mountain into a sculpture of four presidents faces (Mt Rushmore). How'd we go from that to nearly bankrupt? Who the heck knows.
The decline of the middle class I believe is responsible. When they feel safe and secure they consume! It does no good to tie up wealth with just a few. Maybe holding on and paying alittle more for labor and alittle less to the top and consumtion becomes an engine that drives the whole economy.
I couldn't agree more. Paying more for quality products will drive the middle class and help the whole economy thrive. I've been reading a lot of reports recently about how the US is considering increasing the tariffs and forcing American corporations to do more domestic business. Should be interesting.
Do you think people have become more selfish than say 50 years ago? By selfish, I mean more concerned for own self-interest and own financial benefits, rather than thinking of the community as a whole or doing...
