    A "money hoarding " response in general, especially in a thread about a shrinking US GDP seems to hold certain political connotations, dont you think ?

    I get your response, but in reference to a shrinking economy its a "chicken or the egg" type of scenario.

    I'm left scratching my head a bit. Is defense spending bad, or good? What excuse will the Obama Administration look for next?

    Seems like "the summer of recovery" was just the other day, what happened?

    Only if one chooses to allow their overactive imagination to take over rather than look at what is being said and what it was in response to.

    I get your response, but in reference to a shrinking economy its a "chicken or the egg" type of scenario.
    It was made in response to a specific claim, though. It was not made in reference to a shrinking economy.

    United States GDP Growth Rate

    What I can't figure out is how 3rd quarter growth could be 3.1% and then just tank in the fourth quarter. You would think Christmas alone would be enough to spark the economy a little. I'm beginning to wonder if those 3rd quarter numbers weren't a little bit "massaged"...

    oh that's an easy one.

    The 3.1% was falsely inflated by massive Federal spending with borrowed money.

    That is, there was NO private sector growth, it was just more of the slimy Democrat tactics to try and mislead the low information voter.

    The wage differences are likely not as large you think they are. I surmise that because you picked a mid-range one for your example.

    It is entirely possible that area wage adjustments should to be applied to the funding. But that is hardly rocket science, it is certainly far more solvable and addressable than the current issues.

    P.S. You mentioned HISD but did you notice outside the core the little piss ant ISDs? Stafford ISD for example, to the SW by Sugarland.

    EDIT: Getting teachers to work out in Podunk is more expensive than you think. Podunk social life, and often employment opportunity for spouses, tends to be considered substandard.

    Makes sense... Just look at how the jobs numbers were "massaged" a month before the election.

    Or it was because of the actual inflation rate itself fluctuating from quarter to quarter, but six of one, half a dozen of the other. I am sure QE4 will be better than QE3--I think I can, I think I can.........
