I got this quote from Hazlitt

"The greater the amount of government spending, the more it depresses the economy. In so far as it is a substitute for private spending, it does nothing to "stimulate" the economy. It merely directs labor and capital into the production of less necessary goods or services at the expense of more necessary goods or services. It leads to malproduction. It tends to direct funds out of profitable capital investment and into immediate consumption."


This is a good article on it.

Its just basically screwing over the middle/lower class people everywhere. I think the real danger is once they (further) devalue the dollar, there will be big big problems.

Honestly, I don't fear the coming inflation and stock crash. I fear fear. Stupid people who become desperate do terrible, terrible things. All we need now is some fearless leader promising to clean up the mess by nationalizing everything. I hope it ain't Obama.
