You have presented some data which in isolation indicates something. The blatant ignorance of any additional factors is verging in the religious of old in my book.I've read three of Laffer's books. I've done no interpretation at all; I've merely presented some very powerful statistics of economic metrics that change when supply side economic policies are implemented. I do think everyone should join in because this is the most successful economic theory that's been presented. It'd be a religion if I had asked you to believe on faith; I haven't. I've given the reader the data and the reader should decide for himself.
You didn't ask that question. The answer if because they have few jobs due to having little money overall. It's highly likely that the rich in Spain spend it abroad or keep it tucked away. It works for banks, why not individuals.The original question I asked was: Why do you think Spain, Italy, France, and Greece have such high unemployment rates? You never answered.
Where do you get these ideas? I think your pastor needs rest. Unemployment shows the state of employment. Anything you extrapolate from that is inferred not proven.The unemployment rate tells you the health of the economy. If you have high unemployment, that usually means you are doing something wrong.
Let me be clear. ONLY WHERE THERE IS PROFIT TO BE MADE WITHOUT SCREWING THE GENERAL POPULACE.All of the wealth comes from the private sector. All the money that the government spends comes from the private sector. Since capital is created by the private sector, it makes sense to expand the private sector and decrease the size of the unproductive sector. Governments can help the economy by providing security and getting out of the way.
Hence no private military, no private police and no free reign to be a double because you have money. That's an unfair society which will kettle those on lower wages and result in violence.
You do realise that I couldn't give a flying monkeys left testicle about your scrap of paper. Jesus and they say bits live in the past.Defense is a Constitutionally defined role. Providing universal healthcare insurance is not a defined role. Most of what the government does is not mandated by the Constitution.
You give carte blanche to your leaders. That's the system. All you can do is elect good ones when you can to counteract the ones you don't like.
Compare that to the cost of fast food including weight gain, reliance on hospitals etc etc. How about the smoking industry? Alcohol more your thing?Americans spend 7.6 billion hours each year filling out their income tax forms. That's $193 billion spent in compliance with just 1 law.
Your world view is so simplistic and blinkered I am continually amazed at your degree of certainty.
