    For those who don't know shit about economics: Basically, our country now owes more money than every person and company in the United States makes in a year.

    Was it a good thing then, when FDR had to basically take over the entire economy to try to get it back under control?

    Well that settles it. Everything that's ever happened before is a good thing. We can turn Auschwitz into a theme park now!

    No it hasn't: in the middle of WW2, the country, for about two years, chose to temporarily poor its resources into defeating an immediate threat. That meant shifting production-temporarily- towards war materials, and sending a significant percentage of productive labor, also temporarily, off to war.

    The reason why they did that is because they knew country would be able to easily recover after all that government spending went away, and all the production and all those soldiers returned to productive work. Today, we are not only not getting an infusion of productive capacity or fresh, cheap labor, we actually just green-lit another $2.4 trillion in unearned spending at the expense of the little productive capacity we do have.

    Why not? We already turned the Titanic disaster into a romantic action drama and an inflatable slide.
