I Fell Asleep During Economics Class

I am easily baffled, and the entire premise for our economy definitely has me baffled. Oh, I am a willing participant, but I think we have to figure out a different way of doing things.

Here’s my cut on the subject. The US economy runs because people buy things, some of which they need, most of which they don’t. People work to make money so they can buy things to keep the economy running. Here’s the rub, I would like to stop working.

If I stop working I can no longer buy things – some of which I need, most of which I don’t, but I suppose I better keep working because I don’t want to be blamed for crippling the country’s economy.

You still can do it like the government: buy things, but don't pay them and give a flying f* about the debts...

NEVER 'impulse' buy!
Walk away & think it over, first!

(Um...unless you're gonna buy some pastry in a lil shoppe in WI...then, by all means...'impulse' buy away!!!)

:-D

Never took "Economics" . Do ya think that's the reason I had to close my 2 bars ?

It is good of you to keep the economy rolling. I'll help you by buying something soon - so you can take a break.

How does that theory work regarding all the people on wellfare who don't work, but keep spending money on things they need and things that they sometimes don't need?

I say work hard Phos, tens of thousands of people on wellfare are depending on you.

DM: I think the collection agencies would start calling long before I got a trillion dollars in debt. I wonder if there is a “World Collection Agency” that goes after deadbeat counrtries?

FS: That is what my wife tells me – quit buying stuff. Unfortunately I am a bookaholic. Glad to see you got some quality time with your PC!! Thanks for stopping by!


Hi Becky! Might not be able to buy gas much longer! I do most of my damage at the bookstore. In fact Ms. Phos has forbade me to enter said establishment without adult supervision.

Jin: Yeah, all I need is cake right now. A few more slices and they’ll have to bury me in a piano case. None-the-less I may have to journey up into your neck of the woods one of these days.

Keshi: I wonder how I made it out of high school, and it only took me about ten years to get a college degree – and I am not a doctor!!

WC: Hey you gave it a shot. I think it is tough to make a go ofbars and restaurants because of the intense competition.
Chikie: Thanks for the assist!!

SF: I did get nailed at tax time come to think of it. I suspect that as much as I hate this house, if I want to keep it I will have to plug away. I figure on working until they nail the lid on the box.

City o’ Angelz:

Thanks for dropping by. I think Seb has put me in the penalty box, so I may not be by for a while.

hm,i think, there is no necessary to buy everything you see. And sometimes its worth to save money to to permit yourself to go to Cyprus, coz last month i visited this country and spent great time there in Cyprus Four Seasons . All these Spa, Cypriot evenings, wine tasting.. There are so much interesting there!

I do the working thing, but not so much of the buying thing. I'm pretty sure that buying things you don't need is only for rich people.
I think I read somewhere that the richest .00065% of the population has 99.9999996993% of the wealth, but I may have just made that up.

Jess: Isn't Cyprus part of Turkey?

Timmy: I think you are correct. I inhabit the area of the curve that is keeping the rich bastards in their .00065% niche

Tax the rich, feed the poor, til there are no rich no more.

I know those words are from a song, but I just can't think of the title or artist

SF: Probably from the movie "Robin Hood" or if not it almost has to be something from Woody Guthrie tune.
