    Pfft like you care aout the unemployed:

    Why prove anything to someone brainwashed who won't believe the actual data. I take the Treasury Data anyday over what you post because that is what the govt. has to spend. I understand your position for how can you be so wrong in your beliefs and ideology when liberal rhetoric is so compassionate and we know that liberals really care. Too bad the results don't support your position.

    Why are you responding to my post with this comment. I never mentioned tax increases, the deficit, discouraged workers, or anything of that nature. Tax rates are at the lowest levels since the end of WWII (much lower than during the Reagan administration) and yet labor market growth is meager at best.
    No individual taxes paid are the result of rates, the revenue is the number of people paying taxes times the rates. The more people paying taxes affects the revenue more than the rates.

    And you can try to re-write history only to realize that you cannot change it. Not sure what drives people to be progressives because there is nothing progressive about their ideology and economic policies. Just another word that liberals think makes them look like they care.

One can increase profits even while reducing sales, if one cuts expenses by more than sales are falling.

    I made no claims of any kind with respect to the nation's regulatory burden, the Affordable Care Act, etc. Fiscal stimulus provides a short-term boost to aggregate demand. The headwinds damping growth in aggregate demand are not solely matters of public policy. For example, deleveraging following the housing bust played an important role. The economic difficulties in Europe have reduced export growth. Structural factors e.g., related to industry evolution/shifting competitivness, etc., are also involved.

    Once demand increases to a point where firms can't keep up with their current factories and manpower, then they'll expand. Right now, in many industries, there remains considerable slack. The capacity utilization data (Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization) shows considerable slack.
    Thanks for the informative response. It helps paint a clearer picture in head of the whole system at work.

    Do you have any thoughts on Dodd-Frank and ACA?

    I think the regulatory burden is placing a larger strain on companies than people give credit. Particularly small businesses who lack the resources for compliance.

    Didn't expect you to buy the actual data and facts because it flies in the face of how you feel
