    But increasing the minimum wage does exactly that. Unless wages above the minimum get an raise (provided that their productivity justifies their income), those jobs become the new minimum wage jobs.

    It's funny how you don't see a correlation between wages and consumer demand. You complain of low wage jobs but can't see how that effects spending. Corporation hire because they are selling more and need more help.
    Real personal consumption expenditures averages 2.2% from recovery to now, which is just slightly off from the bubble economy of the early 2000's of 2.6%. Consumer demand is growing relatively stable, it is not the issue. The issue is that firms and establishments are not creating more of the jobs that benefit long term economic growth. That makes this an investment problem, not a consumer demand problem.

    The economy doesn't have a spending problem. Not that it ever did...

    Raising minimum wage will put more money in circulation and increase sales and hiring.
    If the exact opposite is true, this will result in cost-push inflation.

    Well, so far, nothing the Liberals have done has worked. How do you explain the failure of the Liberal agenda to encourage economic growth?

    I hate to break it to you, but the productivity-wage gain link was broken back @ 1980.

    So?

    A debaser, not a debater.

    No convictions...other than trying to show you are the smartest guy in the room....without a solution.
    Economics makes people humble, because it allows us to focus on what we can't do, rather than what we should do. The fact that I am probably the smartest person in the room is merely inconsequential.

    If you really want to hear a solution so bad, I would adopt apdst solution with government regulation. Not because I support it, but because you don't agree, and I'll even show you how the economy may be suffering from more regulation than it needs.

    Obamacare

    Stalling the Keystone pipeline

    Drilling moratorium

    Shutting down coal mines

    Shutting down coal fired power plants

    You weren't aware of any of that?

    Again, you don't have to verify the fact that you have no convictions, no solutions but that you are here simply to debase....I already got that. You are not here to express YOUR beliefs, you are only here to cut down others.

    I'm not aware that those are economic stimulus measures, the point supposedly was that liberals have forced a mass of stimulation and they have failed.
