Thanks,
There's a list of other great links that pop up after watching your link. Several which provide access to Naomi Klein's lectures, as well.

Everyone would watch this one if nothing else. Applies perfectly on a national level lack of sustainability in spending.

If nothing else? It points to the fact that everyone loses, except the wealthy, from the Repiglican Trickle Down economics, and Repiglican deregulation, and REpiglican pollicies, in general, which led to this mess we're in, and which Repiglicans are still all for doing all over again, which means American FAILURE.

That''s not what he said at all. But I'm impressed at your ability to try to twist it into something that would support your agenda. Unfortunately, you completely missed the message in the video.

(BTW, you do better when you stick to what's on the spoon. When you venture out on your own, it's just sad to watch.)

Actually that one mentioned how spending was not sustainable on the individual level the way it was. That we pushed for consumers to spend spend spend, even if they didn't have the money, thinking everything would be OK. That they could just borrow more, we'd give it to them, and it would work out. Obviously that didn't.

You are correct, the rich did indeed get richer. And the poor and middle class are feeling the brunt of the whole situation much harder.

Now let us expand that out. Right now the US is the hurting fellow who is trying to spend spend spend, and borrow borrow borrow to keep up that same quality of life and grow more, even if the funds to do so aren't at hand. I suppose China would be the fat cat banker saying "sure, we'll throw them the money as requested".

When all the cards are turned over... using recent history as our guide... who will be bearing the brunt and who probably will be sitting there just fine? (note: I'm actually agreeing with what Joseph Stiglitz says... and it applies just the same on a government level as it does an individual one)

Then why did the wealthy suffer the biggest hit during the downturn, and profit the most under the Obama regime?
