    Re: U.S. Voters Prefer Job Creation Over Deficit Cuts, Poll Shows

    The Quinnipiac University poll also shows that few of those surveyed expect President Barack Obama to make much progress with congressional leaders at a White House meeting, originally scheduled for tomorrow, that is likely to focus on economic issues.
    I wonder if any of the Republicans in attendance will be disrespectful to the President when he wants to say something, telling him 'We won...'

    The market is not always right. It must be regulated and influenced to some degree by government, and without government the market cannot truly exist. A total anarchic state proves that statement to be correct.

    And, by the same token, there is a a such-a-thing as too much government regulation.

    How has it proven that? The economy could always be better or worse, and comparing the timing of government policies with the timing of economic cycles is, at best, a very noisy source of information.

    In reality you'd need to look at the aggregate demand for goods and services...the total demand from the private AND public sector. If the private sector demand contracts and the public sector doesn't respond by expanding, then the economy as a whole will contract and we'll have a recession.

    It's not so much a matter of government replacing private sector cash flow...ideally, we'd have both. It's more that the government needs to pick up the slack where the private sector demand has weakened, in the short term. The government can and should cut back on the stimulus spending once the economy recovers a bit.

    So, you agree that government spending can't improve the economy. Yes?

    I'm racking my brain how you can possibly think that the government can--through massive spending--can somehow replace private sector cash flow and then, expecct it to recover the economy. The stimulus spending over the past two years should have proven that that's not possible.

    Then I would suggest you actually read Post #14 and learn about the economic logic behind it, instead of just responding "So you agree with me?" when any moderately intelligent high schooler could tell from my response that I clearly did not, and gave my reasons WHY I did not.
