Charlie Rose economic round table 6/3 show

Post by Feyth on Sat Jun 04, 2011 10:34 am

Last night Charlie Rose hosted an intelligent, rational discussion about the jobs crisis with 4 economists, including Paul Krugman. From Rose's website, it looks like it takes about a day show to go online -- I encourage folks who missed the show to check it out when it does.

There were two takeaways for me. First, I was encouraged by the fact that the conversation is turning away from Everything Deficit and turning to discussing ways to add jobs again.

Second, their discussion prompted my own Theory about the economy's stagnation over the last couple of months. During that time, the ONLY thing coming out of Washington was deficit jibber jabber. I think the entire country, including folks of every party, got the message loud and clear: You're on your own.

That kind of message doesn't exactly make folks go out and stimulate the economy with spending, not when soooooo many are already struggling.

The lesson Washington should learn is that even TALKING about reducing the deficit is dangerous to the economy.

Hoping unemployed friends take some encouragement from the conversation turning to jobs creation again.

Thanks for the information and the link, feyth. I will be watching for it online. Paul Krugman is one of the few economists that makes sense. I enjoy reading his blogs in the NY Times.

I hope all is going well with you and that you are still employed. Miss you, my friend!
