AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
I went to school full time, and when I started, digital photography was in it's infancy, and wasn't really taught. 3 months after I graduated, couldn't land even an assistant job without owning your own DSLR. Things change, and FAST, and the longer you spend at school, the farther behind you get left by those that CAN go fulltime.
Remember, college is about leveling the playing field, the means by which a lower class person can change his/her financial fate.
They spend less because the patient care is much poorer.
Do you really expect the first class service Americans have become accustomed to at cut rate prices? Does that make any sense to you at all?
Other countries who have free enterprise medical systems, something Americans have abandoned in several areas. are already gearing up for first class Medical Tourism.
My son whose in college until recently had a difficult time finding work even part-time. My oldest son finally found a job that pays above minimum wage. I'm helping him to better manage his money and encouraging him to invest now while he's young. My daughter is just now beginning to get on her feet after experiencing a few setbacks (poor dear; Murphy's Law just won't leave this poor child alone). So, I understand the struggles these college-bound Occupiers are lamenting. I see it every day in the lives of my children.
I really wish people would stop seeing things in such short-sighted, narrow views. Try to put yourself in someone else's shoes for a change.
Wait a minute here. Did I just read you right? You are teaching your children to invest, while understanding the OWS'ers plight? Look we all pay our dues. Life is hard. My kids have a hard time as well. As do i, as do we all thanks to progressive policies that are the problem.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
