Why Should the Uninvolved Have to Pay?
24 Nov 2012
It happens in life that often we pay for things that have little to nothing to do with us directly one way or another. Take our taxes, for example, through which we may pay for things that don't really affect us as much as they do others. Perhaps some of our taxes go towards inner city school technology updates, new books, refurbishing and/or restoration and we live in a suburban area. As such it would not affect folks not living in the inner city as much. Perhaps our taxes are going towards helping to improve the roads of various rural areas in our state and we live in the city. As such we may not be directly affected by such funding. Perhaps, certain suburban areas are getting money from the state to have their main streets redesigned to improve current retail business sales and to attract new businesses. If we live in the city and rural areas this may not affect us directly or at all.

Downward Spiral
23 Nov 2012
To Krugman, the increasing "ideological blindness" of German politicians can only be explained by their belief "that hard times must be the necessary punishment for earlier excesses." That the hard times and excesses do not concern the same people is overlooked by Krugman. For more than thirty years, the world economy was only kept going by contracting debts. The struggle over competitiveness can only lead to a further downward spiral that has long been underway.
