IDK how well this will work but since we seem to be in an economic crisis, mabye we need a thread for it? IF no on seems interested in tlaking about it I'll get rid of the thread...


What do you think needs to get done to get us out of this recession? Is investing a good idea now, or should I not in case of failure? Is the stimulus plan really worthwhile or was that a no no on Obama's part? etc etc....

My business teacher also thinks it's the banker's fault for lending money to people who couldn't afford the loans in the first place.

Discuss

Maybe you could start the conversation instead of just making a thread and saying "discuss".
#10
You're very unspecific with this post. If you included more details as to what you wanted to know, I could help you more.
But a blanket statement like yours would require around a 3000 word response to really describe how the recession is affecting the nation.

We've had a horrible economy since the 70's. An economy ruled by monopolies where private business are unable to scrape together a living is no economy at all.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

You have a very misshapen view of the United States economy if you truly think that.

Well a few people seem to want to talk about it
#26
Cool. I'll leave you to it. It's picked up since the first page... After roflburger I figured it had stopped going downhill and had turned into more of a freefall.

Good topic though. Being in a recession means that people have less money to spend on things like entertainment, but I also think that entertainment such as music is even more valuable now.

People like going to see a band play live and have fun so they can forget that the world is ****ed and tomorrow they'll have to pay rent.

very nice to put that in terms such as those, have you noticed that brand shopping is slowing down and generic is where things are going, just about all the major brand corporations we looked up in my business class have been dropping steadily, well not so much steadily as dramatically which makes me wonder what will the "BIG" brands be in 50 years?


Quote by restless_thrash
i think that we need to stop pouring money into the system. just seems like a temporary fix to me.

I think the stimulus plan is a good idea on paper, but we have yet to see how long it really will help the economy

I reckon the big brands will be reshuffled by the recession. In even 10 years I think there'll be a mix of big brands that manage to weather the storm now, and new brands that are born out of the recession.
#31
I'd be interested to see which brands can and can't change to reflect the different circumstances.

ahh yes all very well IF we get out of this any time soon
#34
haha yes yes, I'm hoping this stimulus pacakage actually does something, with all the money we're spending on it(money we don't even ahve in the first place) it better not backfire
#36
Unfortunately,if the plan backfires,there won't ever be another Democrat who will be the president of the US.

yeah this is a load of bull ****.

Banks didn't do background checks on people who took out huge loans so that ****ed up everything

Obama's trying to use bush's failed policies to revive the economy.

etc.


well I'm glad for Obama personally, I think he just might be able to help us through this shlt

that's where you're wrong. he's using policies that Bush tried to pull off, but couldn't and failed miserably at, and now when obama tries to do it:

GUESS

Same thing, his attempts to revive the economy by throwing money (billions and billions of dollars) into it are failing.

I guess, but this could pull it off, bush didn't throw nearly as much money into it as Obama has, and I guess I'm more on the approach of please God let this work

It can work,if the money is used the right way...which it won't.

This just adds to the workload that future generations have though.We haven't even finished paying for WW2!!!
