Which is precisely why more and more of the world is accelerating ahead of us, while we battle tired old and quite frankly disproved gut-feelings and theories.

And where would that be? Asia where all the workers are toiling away for slave wages. Europe, country by country going broke under the burden of unaffordable social services.

When you say Europe, you guys tend to mean Greece, Portugal, and Spain - that's not "Europe". Same way the states that rank in the last 10 last for wealth (all Red States), do not represent the United States.

When I mean the world I mean the G20 economies, a list those nations don't even make. I mean lots of nations with a higher GDP per capita, and many with lower deficits, and even lower unemployment rates than ourselves.

"toiling away for slave wages" is ironic, considering that we have the lowest wages and perks of any advanced nation. Evidently, you have not heard of Walmart, where thousands of their employees rely on Gov Sect 8 and food stamps, while the Walton's fatten their pockets - by the billions.

BTW. Have you seen Romania's broadband options?

And we're in no position to talk. We're going broke giving out handouts to individuals and industry, fighting wars, trying to police the world, plus we don't have the benefits---- just the expenses. Our greedy short-term thinking is murdering us.

We're all going to pay dearly for this travesty.

Thank you. RWers say 'Europe' and act like the whole place is falling to shit, when really just a handful of countries are.
