    I have no idea. There are many reasons why any one person might be unemployed. That'd we have to look at individually.

    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.

    I agree, you'd have to deal with this on a case-by-case basis, you can't just declare everyone over 50 without a job ought to get free money from the federal government.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It requires far too much time (and therefore money) to investigate reasons for each person's uselessness.

    Give people an incentive to save their money again: leave them alone.
