Without a decent, monthly salary, can anyone survive in this modern world?
Transport fees, food prices, and many other more add up to our insurmountable burden. The news have been always forecasting about an impending, mediocre economy that will affect many people this year. Yes, they are indeed too maudlin, and it reinforces the belief most people have that we have to cut down our expenses and even eat just one meal a day.
And how about the graduating students? Is job-searching going to get tougher and tougher, especially with foreigners competing? How can one earn a large amount of salary and live an opulent life without having great experience and exceptional skills? Will the graduating students be disadvantaged?
When one is on the edge of losing food and shelter, it kind of depresses one.
There's going to be more people in 2012 experiencing the modern world without a decent monthly salary. There will probably be some kind of mob attacks like during the French Revolution.
That's why there are demonstrations going on worldwide.
And all this happens, while on the hill the morons in charge will increase their own salaries and tell us to tighten our belts. The only belts that need tightening are the ones used around their ankles as they are hung.
Just wait until banks start lending money again. Several years ago I predicted that inflation would devastate the economy. It didn't happen and I wasn't sure why. When banks sat on the stimulus money, they actually did us a favor. Because that money didn't enter circulation, prices did not go up due to the increase of the supply of money.
It would seem that those days are at an end. As banks start to lend that money, it will enter the economy and make the value of the dollar much, much less. It'll be interesting to see if other states continue to inflate their currency right along with the US.
Probably. Their leaders make promises they can't keep to their citizenry too. Sooner or later the bill will come due, but they're content to keep the party going and pushing it off until it can't be pushed off any further.
I expect this question. Well, a decent salary would be a certain sum of money (it's hard to give a definite amount since currency varies worldwide) whereby you can spend for food, utilities, and other necessary things, excluding advanced technological devices like tablets.
It's got nothing to do with what a "decent" salary is, it's what you bring to the table as an employee. If all you do is sit around crying and complaining about how unfair things are, you're likely to be one of those on the bottom. If, however, you better yourself and make yourself more skilled and valuable; you will find that you rise to the top pretty quickly. Just because you breathe you're not automatically entitled to anything. You have to work, and work hard, in order to be successful.
Thanks for the reply. Your advice is constructive especially for the high-ranked officers and ministers who already have too much money in their pockets. With more money in circulation and fetters unshackled, I believe anyone can earn more money with hard work.

Yesterday Oblama signed the stimulus package and by the time the stock market closed the Dow was down almost 300 points.. Today he spoke about the mortgage bailout. When he started the Dow was positive and now is down 30 points the last time I checked. I guess it's not convincing a lot of investors...
