GOVT has, CAN and SHOULD create jobs- directly. from STOP the harmful myth.

Q : Can govt create jobs ?

A : W.P.A.

Yes, millions - at low cost - in a matter of months.
They can produce works of lasting value and benefit to
society.

Bribing business to pretend to do so and create a few jobs
on the margins in the absence of demand - THAT is what
is wasteful.

OBAMA's decision to listen to the quasi-Republicans in
his economic team and to appease rather than confront
myths, and ignorant untruths are why we are now
still in a depression.

In 2013, if Obama wins, fire your economic staff
and put Krugman snd Reich in charge of it.
Fire any Bush II financial regulator holdovers
who don't believe in prosecuting people who are
"too rich to fail". Laisez faire is and always has
been a gross mistake. (And yes that includes prosecuting
Democratic supporters like Corazine). PROSECUTE - at least TRY
to make those who brought us down at least WORRY that
they wont be laughing at us all the way to their
(offshore) banks.

Monday shows used to be the interesting ones... now they are dull and I fund myself tuning out which I never had done before. There is a huge lack of substance on this program now, abundance of low importance subjects matter and an echo chamber type presentation. This show used to be one of the reasons I contributed to WNYC. Will have to rethink that one.
