    I wouldn't want to have a child there, either - it's ridiculously expensive just to live as a married childless couple with TWO incomes. Personally - I fail to see how poor people can pull it off even WITH government assistance.

    The place should be ashamed for gutting everyone from so much money - it's inexcusable.
    How exactly is that the city's fault? Should we institute price controls on everything? If people are willing to pay X, that's not the city's fault.

    To live in New York she lived like a rat in a cage.

    Every time we talked on the phone our conversation would be drowned out by the sound of sirens outside - it was dangerous and disasterous to live there.

    Have a kid in that environment? **** no.
    How long ago was this? NYC is the safest large city in the country.

    That's an interesting observation, I've heard stories like that. If a mom puts her newborn in a dumpster and the baby dies, is it murder?

    I felt that it was long ago as well. Perhaps she lived there in the 80s. Those times were dangerous especially in a city like NYC. Nowadays everything is safe....too safe. There is no more spice to NYC. It has becomed to plastic like most of Europe. Its why I prefer cities like Chicago. Actually yeah, Chicago is the only good city in the states.

    If that is so then perhaps PP is an abortion machine afterall. But what is pushing these people to have so many abortions? It isn't a pleasant procedure for the female and just can't buy this is their contraception.
    Really haven't seen any suggested solutions other than "healthy families" and just how is that accomplished.
    You have to understand a lot of people are scum. Especially when they are young. They will do things that most mature minded people would resent. But then again, those who do bad things while young would still be doing bad things as they get older.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
