I can’t wait to get my hands on some of that stimulus cash. Trump just signed the bill into law, but will it be enough to get American’s out of the free-falling economy? Maybe it is something the baby boomers should have realized a long time ago. The economy will be stronger if you give cash to the citizens that move the cash the quickest.
Sadly, this brings up what I think needs to change about the current baby boomer economic strategy. Which if you look at it. It has been manufactured just to take care of their generation. They love to kick the can down the road, and they are not going to pay for all of the debt that they have put American in. If you do recall, there parent’s generation paid off most of America’s debt.
Taxpayers need to stop investing in corporations
I believe that taxpayers need to stop investing in corporations (trickle-down economics) and start investing in taxpayers (trickle-up economics), for the last 40 years. I have realized that the trickle-down theory is a joke. I am not happy with the results at all, and you should be unhappy as well. Sadly, this is what trickle-down economics has given us.
We have a horrible public school system compared to the world; our medical industry gladly puts most Americans that use it in bankruptcy. Our universities put the majority of students in a crazy amount of debt. Oh, and the kicker for the last 40 years. The majority of Americans’ pay has been stagnant, while the wealthy class has increased an insane amount. The rich have done nothing but take care of themselves and their stakeholders. If we do not take what is ours, then they will continue to bend us over and take what they think is theirs.
Kevin Bacon, in the movie “Animal House,” explains it best.
