    US middle class' net worth lowest in decades

    ofcourse, most people in the US will think this is false since it comes from old communist Russia, awful they are.

    this goes along with the record high amount of people on food stamps in the US.
    The Eurosone "crisis" is just a distraction away from the global financial meltdown that is taking place in the US and threatening to tear apart the world economy.
    I thought George W. Bush was bad for taking on more debt than anyone before him. But that was just chump change compared to the record debt that Obama has taken on, effectively doubled the total debt.

    Ooh, and bad news, there has been no changes at all. Obama is just the same crap as George W. Bush. A bunch of trash that manipulate the US population to be able to keep them under total control.

    You are correct that Obama has been nothing but an exaggerated George W. Bush in his economic policies. He seems to have failed in developing any new economic policies of his own.
    Personally my net worth has increased a great bit since the date listed in the article of 2010 but that is because in 2009 we made a decision to stop borrowing for what we wanted and learn to save and earn the money up front for what we wanted. Though the first year of the change was a tough one, as we did without trying to pay off debt, it was the best decision we ever made for our lives.

    1. stagnating wages for decades while increasing prices tends to be detrimental to increasing wealth.

    2. trickle down doesn't deliver for the American middle class in the global dynamic.

    I suppose we could ban women from most jobs--that would increase competition for labor (or we can ban men; if you prefer. Either way); we could eliminate employer provided benefits of any kind--that would leave more money for pay raises; we could require all payroll be but of food stamp cards and people could only spend it on the things that the government approves of. Lots of options--pick one or come up with something better than some's unionizing Walmart and all the world's problems go away.


    Trickle down does not deliver pay raises; it does however deliver 401(k) growth.

    Of course you are as usual wrong, and your hatred of all things American makes the bolded painfully ironic.
