    interestingly enough, deficit spending is the opposite of saving or hoarding.

    Except we had rationing; we were still in a depression during WWII. It was only when rules were relaxed after WWII that we finally got out of the depression.

    The economy grew 58% from 1932 to 1940 in 8 years of peacetime, and then grew 56% from 1940 to 1945 in 5 years of wartime. However, the unemployment rate never went below 9% before the draft. During the war the economy operated under so many different conditions that comparison is impossible with peacetime, such as massive spending, price controls, bond campaigns, controls over raw materials, prohibitions on new housing and new automobiles, rationing, guaranteed cost-plus profits, subsidized wages, and the draft of 12 million soldiers.

    The quality of life of most people did not rise during the time period of WWII. So the recession was still going on then.

    What are you just measuring GNP? It's not sufficient because it measures government spending as being just as efficient as private sector spending so it gives you a false impression, In reality, it's somewhere between GNP and PPR.

    Really? This chart shows GDP per capita going sharply up during WWII. And dipping back down afterward.

    From this thread, we can see how Scottsoperson managed to get 63 posts in a single day.

    Tell the truth. You work for the Obama Ministry of Misinformation, don't you?

    I am still trying to figure out how the last four pages have anything to do with the subject of this thread?

    the va can't handle the increased caseloads. we need a tax hike on the rich to pay for better care for disabled vets.
    Everything is tax the rich when the rich are no longer rich because of all the taxes who will you tax?
